Misa Mabel Saliado, one of the young, women nurses at the institution, has: left the training school after a clash .with the .hospital authorities. An effort : was made at the, hospital last evening to ajiasthetize the rumor that conditions at the hospital have led. the authorities to Issue a set of rules carefully re stricting the relations between the pretty nurses and the Internes of the hospital and the students of Cooped medical college, with which the sana taricm is affiliated. Romance Rumored Behind the retirement of Saliado' and the report of the new rules of con duct, is the story, of a romantic ad venture at the hospital on Sunday even ing. This . story the hospital people would amputate of all its limbs, but it is reported to be in effect that Miss Scott, superintendent of nurses, dis covered Mifs Saliado and Dr. Sylvan Haas, an , interne at the : hospital, to gether In one of the corridors at a time when the young nurse might have been about lier professional duties. . Doctor Haas, when seen last even ing, denied emphatically that he was In any way involved in the/trouble Miss Saliado had with the hospital au thorities. "Miss Saliado, I believe, left the hos pital of hjr own volition. I believe that she might have had some dispute with the superintendent over a trivial matter, over some detail of duty, but no doctor or student was in any way involved In the incident. Not Involved "As for me, I was in no way or-man ner concerned at all. .'.I : know . very little about ike occurrence, beyond that It was some personal matter dispute between Miss Saliado and her superi ors, and she left tha hospital freely and of her own will and was not dismissed.'.' Miss Irving, night superintendent' of nurses, stated last evening that she knew of no rules of the hospital re cently promulgated restricting the con duct of nurses and doctors. She said that were there any such rules she would know about them. '. "As for Miss Saliado," said Miss Irv ing, "she left the hospital of. her own accord, and not as a consequence •of any action by. herself or her superiors."

Planned by a woman to circumvent the schemes of a wily contractor, the Mueller "spite fence,". which for months had disturbed the serene . atmosphere of the Presidio residence district, came into the limelight again yesterday, when it was learned that an attempt .would be made to have the board of public works condemn the "^unsightly struc-' ture, which makes the west side of the .fashionable Terrace apartments look like a hencoop in distress. "Whether the offending structure is a "spite fence," as the apartment, owners declare, or an '-.

The history of the spite fence itself is- replete with sensations," such as the hurling of defiance at burly workmen by the beautiful daughter of Mrs. Mueller and a courageous stand, or rather sit, of the girl to malntaiti the rights of the family *property; a battle between, the workmen- and a cohort of neighbors led by the pretty daughter, who used a garden hose and routed her adversaries; an all -night job of /amateur carpenters in ••• fence building, and others of a like char acterJ m \u25a0 \u25a0'."" :''- ' : ; •. \u25a0>'. - •;;'; ; - ' •";.*- .
