Her Life,
Missx Florence Ngllhtingale, wiose
nalne was rendered illustrious by her
hllilantrophie efforts to alleviate the
sufferings of the wounded soldiers dur
Ing the Crimean war, was the daughter
of Willium E. Nightingale of Embley
Park, Hampshire, and was born at
Plorence, i'taly, May 1f., 1820. She en
Joyet all tile ad\vantagesi which fall to
the Itt of chhlidrein of the affhlelnt and
refined, and her commanl d of different
langutages and other hranches of a
truly liberal. education stood her itn
goodt stead In her aifter career.
It was not long btefore her phllain
tlhropllc instncts, exercised amlnolng the
pl)lorer neighlibolr of her English honle,
leI her to the t.ystematic sltuly of the
amlellorative treatment of ipysical antl
moral distress. Not satisfied with
studying the workillg of Inglishl
schools, hospitauls and reforlmatory in
stittitions, she exanmined similar Insti
tutions abhroad in the same spirit, and
in I9G1 spent some inonths in tll In
stitution of Protestant sisters ait Kai
serwerth on the Rhine.
Before long an opportunity presented
itself for applying the practical les.
sons she had learned, for having heard
that the Governesses sanitarium lan
gulshed for the want of supervilsion
and support, she generously devoted
both her personal energies and private
means to its restoration and thoroutgh
Tifis work had scarcely been accom
Itlished when, before Miss Nlghtingals
had time to recover her over-taxed
strength, new demands were made
upon her spirit of self-sacrifice. The
inefficiency andl mismanagement of the
Engiish militaiy hospitul In the Crimea,
led to tan outburst of ilubtle feeling at
Ilhome. Various plans of hltp wint
suggested, the most popular of whichi
was the sending forth of it select band
of women. At tile request of Lord
lIerlbert, secretary of war, Miss Night-t
Inaglo undertook the organlzxtio/ n tand
conduct of this body.
Alleviated Suffering,
By Instituting order where confusion
-before reigned, and by affording care
and consolation, Miss Nightingale al
lviated the sufferings of all, saved
the lives'of many and earned the bless
Ings of the slok and wounded, as well
as the gratitude of her country. A
testimonial fund amounting to $250,000.
qubscrlbed by the public in recognition
df her noble services, was at her, spe
cial request devoted to the formatlon
of an institution for the training of
nurses, which later became the "Nlght
Ingale home,"
For the past 40 years or so the
heroine of the Crimea lived In quiet
retlrentent in her house , near Park
lane, London. For the past 1"- or 15
years, It is pathetic to note, she had
not been able to leave the house. But,
though confined at home by constant
Ill-health, she continued ceaselessly at
work for 'the welfare of humanity, glv
Ing her attention to all matters af
fecting the public health, education and
social benefit,
She was the author of many books
and, pamphlets, ntended. to disseminate
knowledge on the subject In which .she
was so well versed, "Notes on Hos
pltals," a valuable work which had a
very large, circulation, appeared In
1855; "Notes on Nursing," of which
many thousand copies have been sold,
was published in 1800, and "Observ -
