the Fairmont Chapter of the

but one thing In all Its career, and
yrthat one thing had been the present

doing wonderful work as it deBjwbied,
demanding and receiving
Kgpjjioar citizens Increasing financial
IKiiIiiIiiiii 1 attention, the member
ship litle realized It was preparing
to give combat to a foe on our own
doc.Step, more deadly and destructive
Rto our nation than any war losses we
mave been called on to endure.
.When the call came, the chapter,
BjMdg to its unexcelled organization,
ESed the Instant readiness of its oft< cials,
was in the best of condition to
fvWIiftM and nnt into action every
possible means of treating and stampmis,
oat the disease as far as it is humanly'
possible to do.
Numbers of capable and self sacrificing
women are at work night and
day in the emergency hospital; even'
comfort within, the means of the Red
Cross is being given to the sufferers.
.Drags,, gauze, disinfectants, masks,
'surgeons' robes, caps and aprons have
I been supplied, some of the member
ship bavins orked all day last Sonday
U> order to make enough aprons

things supplies includes, four beds
jmomplete -with bedding. 110 sheets. 72
BEUowslipa, 144 towels. 36 blankets.
W8 table covers and dresser covers.
35 b?d shirts and night gowns for chil,
dren and babies. New cases arrive
f. every day, and the situation is not
r .xraidly clearing hut the women of the
chapter, both nurses and volunteers,
will stick to the finish. A situation
f. like the present one calls for all there
.is of solid-worth and pure unselfishness,
and the city of Fairmont owes a
, debt to these splendid, devoted wom!?en
which it can never repay.
