the life of a woman' Is as interesting as
the 'best ; of stories. v , , ' ,v
, "Tho Angel*, of .the;, Crimea,'' as thej
British soldiers love to jjall the noble,
: woman i,who; so recently; died; in lion

After the J first battle' of the awful
Crimean (.war, ;the flghtiby,Alma River,'
word went back ; to « England : that : there
', were T hundreds of f wounded ; , and ' sick
soldiers, 7 andionly; a \ few ; orderlies/, who
did , not !, understand ; ; nursing, ' to ; ; care
for V; When the \ people : awoke^to
the fact that the beggar in tho streets
/of London was a prince compared with
' the «/.' soldier ':;, who - waa : ; away In" the
Crimea," 1 fighting . for i his /country, " they
knew that,* something /* musts be /done,
.They decided to send women nurses,
and appointed Florence Nightingale
"Lady In Chief."
No better choice could have, .been
made, for Florence Nightengale r was
born to be a nurse, .. As a little' girl >
she tended v her dolLa, tsbme of which
were usually, sick, : and always restored
them to health. Once, t>y skillful care
aho saved the life of a shepherd dog,
Vwhen its owner thought- that nothing
could' bo.dbno for It and was about to
have it killed. ,/ f
.What wonders she accomplished on
the-C battlefield' is best told in : the
statement"that. before. she reached the
Crimea per cent' \u25a0.'of; '.the/ wounded
died. £ Within a few months after her
arrival -the' rate was reduced to lper
cent. ''/\u25a0\u25a0* '\u25a0'! ."' '/\u25a0\u25a0 . ; /' \u25a0•' '\u25a0• \u25a0\u25a0 •'\u25a0 -/' • ' : "
