Here there Is tuithliiK. aianntly. of
brave diirine. of counict'ous abutnlon,
of sublime heroism. Why then should
such a simple deed he carved In the
Imperishable granite of God's Word?
The most erfect picture ever con
ceived of life and all Us hallowed re
lationships in found in the opening
chapters of Genesis. Hut the charm of
that life was dispelled by the blight
ing Invasion of sin. Sinful nature, sin
ful environment an( sinful atmosphere
was the bequest of Adum and Eve to
tbelr countless posterity, yet God did
not abandon Ills disobedient children.
He loved them. His love furnished an
antidote for tbelr sin. Before they
left I'aradise the gospel of sulvution
was proclaimed, redemption offered
and righteousness provided.
There Is every reason to believe that
the guilty pu rents of the nice accepted
the divine plun of salvation when they
put on the robes of substitution God
brought to them. Wonderful Indeed
must this all have been to them.
Oh, how could they sin In the midst
of love and light and liberty! They
did, and deserved sin's Inevitable con
sequence, death ; but God, whose grace
was greater than all their aln. brought
salvation ere tliey suffered the conse
quences of disobedience.
Their life outside begun very natu

" God accepted Abel's offering. Even
so God accepted Christ's death. He
was delivered for our offences and
raised for our Justification.
Oh, ran you not see what value God
puts upon the blood, even from the be
ginning, for He has declared that
"without the shedding of blood there
Is no remission of sins." There Is only
one way of salvation through the
blood of Calvary's Lamb. There Is
only one title to heaven not moral
ity or good works, or personal virtue,
or self-sacrifice, or death for another,
but that title which Is the inheritance

TWO KINDS OF TRAINED
One of the men best informed re
garding' hospital practice recently
dropped the remark that the Trained
Nurses of the United States are now
one of the most h'ghly paid, highly
organized and overbearing: of all thj
The service they can render is a
real one, and there have been so few
trained nurses that they have all
found employment among the rich at
very high wages, and with many per
quisites like opportunities to travel
with invalids. In order to retain
these advantages the number of nur
ses must be limited, and this limita
tion the Nurses Union seeks to se
cure by making it more and more dif-
fVult to enter the profession. Of
course the plea is "raising the stan-
On the other hand statesmanlike
physicians like the Mayo Brothers,
as well as certain hospitals of high
standing, have set out to increase the
number of trained nurses, and to pro.
vide a s;niple and practical trainirg
that will make it possible for people
who are not millionaires to have
helpers at their sick-beds.
Naturally these efforts are hotly J
resented by the Nurses' Union. As
part of their propogamia an article
by their head organizer, Isabel!
Stewart, appeared in last week's Citi
len. She expresses her fear that it
may soon be possible for nurses with
real ability and skill to be obtained
by families that cannot pay more
than "the modest sume of $15 or at
most $25 a week"!
Now would it be a calamity if, we
common folks should be able to get
the services of a helper in illness at
these modest figures? According to
W. I. King, whose book on incomes
in the United States is just out, less
than one person in 24 among Ameri
cans who have incomes at all have as
much as $40 a week. It is evident
then that the vast ajority of us
must get help in sickness at these
modest figures or go without.
Isabel 1 Stewart intimates that any
one who has not had a threu years
course in nursing is only a rretender
like Dicken's Sairy Gamp. Is this
fair or generous way to treat an ef
fort to provide some nurse-care In
reach of the common people? Is it
not a "dog in the manger" attitude?
There is no objection to any kind of
course she chooses for those who are
to serve the rich, or to be superinten
dents of hospitals and the like. But
has she any right to deny practical
nurses to those who need them? For
a hospital to refuse to train any ex
cept these super-nurses is like navy
yard that turns out nothing but
dreadnaughts, when the navy needs
lighter craft aa well!
Can life be saved and the sick be
made comfortable by persons who
have had less than this new three
year course? The conclusive answer1
is that it has been done. Nearly all !
that has ever been done by nurses has'
been done by those who have had far 1
less than three years in resident t
Of course much ilcpemLs upon the
kird of training given. In some hos-,
pitals girls get more the first three
months than in other hospitals in
long years. The way to "raise the
standard" would be t make the in-,
stmction more systematic, varied
and intensive rather than to lengthen
the time. Too much instruction is i
given by physicians who scorn or ;
neglect all the principles of good
teaching. Many hospitals are
