Martha bad been East, not on law
hue mesa, as we supposed, but on a I
holy mission, she told me the storv,
in order to explain what a typical ca*e
of the flu is like at it* worst, and not
to prove herseli a heroine.
Martha has a second cousin, a
trained nurse, who was employed at
Hog island, and who came down with
the epidemic there. This young wom
an hasn't a relative in the world ex
cept Martha. When she semed about
to die, the doctor wired and Martha
was hurried to the hospital. Doctors
and nurses insisted that the caae was 1
hopeless. t_he patient had the dreadful -
bubonic symptoms, bloated abdomen
and spotted skin. The girl wanted to i
die everybody gave her up?execpt- 1
"May I take care of her?" Martha '
asked the doctor. Of course she could !
-Hog Island hospital like all others
was lamentably short of nurses. So'
Martha put on a white cap and sing- j
ham gown; she encouraged her pa
tient until the will t$ live came bac-K ;
to the numbed brain; she nursed j
through the dreadful days and worse f
nights until the miracle was accom- I
pitched and the g.rl entered the con- I
valescent stage, to the astonishment j
of the hospital staff
It makes such a little story in the
telling, this true tale of one woman s
heroism, but I like to think that it I
compares well with stories of brave1
deeds pet formed by soldiers overseas.
| Martha's only comment is a general
one; she says that few persons realise
that we are living through one of the j
| fnoet frightful plagues ever visited
, on humanity, that women ought to
! think of this because the plague will
j come back In recurring waves, and its
toll may be cut down if women will
| only think as much about the family ,
health record as they do about their
| spring bonnet*. Martha is bitter, <
| I set her stor^ down here to remind j
myself of the contrast between Mar- I
tha s deed and the startling adven- '
j tures I have lived through and
I thought so wonderful, although their j
I product was nothing better than a'
j few thrills.
j Thousands of girls would envy me '
rather than Martha, but they know
| as I do that I should stand "at atten- j
j tlon" whenever Martha passes by.
j And I know, too, that Bob would de
| ride my adventures?but how he would
j approve of Martha! Except when he is
stubborn, Bob is always so sane!

Many such scenes of terrible and
tragic suffering are in the very
lands where Jesus walked with his
disciples; where He had compassion
on the needy multitudes, and fed
them and healed them and coir.fort -

sights are even in the very shadow

said: "Suffer the little children and
