LONDON, England, Jan. 16, 1915. —(By mall i- -Sister Julie is one of the fifty thousand nuns France exiled during the churrh troubles. "It appears that the good Lord would have us know more ol' His world, my sisters," said Sister Julie, and parked a prayer hook, her Sunday haliit and some linen into a shabby Glad stone bag. W'Hr found la Patrle unprepared, without nurses or red cross equipment. Repulsed at Motis, overwhelmed at Rhelms, wounded soldiers of France lay untended where they fell. Fever, gangrene, lockjaw became epidemic. Shamefacedly the minister of war invited the nun-nurses to return. Six hours later the first contingent stood In the war office, calm, smiling -ready for Instant duty. "It appears that we may serve God and our country in this crisis," said Sister Julie. "On the Marne'.' Certainly, Monsieur, we thank you and go at once." They went- -and stayed, organizing their one-nurse hos pitals Just-back of the battle front. For days the ding-dong of battle raged around the ruined, blameless villages. For days, Sister Julie, alone and unprotected in an ambulance station in a deserted hamlet, attended her helpless, shot-torn patients as the maelstrom of war stormed uliont them. Once Sister Julie found it necessary to don her fresh blue apron, lock the ilooi- and go out and warn the German general to turn his nun- away from her hospital! But. the tide of war rolled back. The (iermans were driven pellntell from the Marne. The French soldiers came dashing through, sister Julie had time merely to nod cheerfully at them through the window. One day a glittering squadron of French cavalry clattered through the shell-swept street and stopped in front of Sister Julie's ambulance station. "Sister," announced the captain, "we are going to ask a favor. Will you permit that we parade past you?" Her quiet smile gave consent. The captain turned In the saddle to address his troop of horse. "My friends." he Haiti, "when we were here in August we saw flames leap to the sky. You can see now what they did. But In the deserted village, in the midst of the flames, under the hall of shells. ONK WOMAN REMAINED AT HER POST OF MERCY. That was Sister Julie. "The president of the republic is about to pin the Cross of .Courage on her veil. Salute her! We are to have the honor of parading before tier. Young men, look at her well. Soon you will again be under fire. When that times comes, think of her, that like her you may stick to your post." He paused. They waited for the heroic nurse to speak. "Why, bless you all, what else hw I to do?" asked Hister Julie! tentions were excellent and In some measure justified by cir cumstances, but declared that such a peace would be more dis astrous to Germany than utter de feat at the hands of the allies."

WOMEN PHKI'MIF, FOR WAR Eight thousand women have volunteered as nurses. All Raltau women are intensely Interested In their country's leap Into the war. The Cotintessa Spsletll Raapee.l, the president of tho Nutlonal Fed* enition of Kalian Women, launch ed a noble appeal to her country women. "While hoping," so the docu ment runs, "that Italy may be able to maintain her neutral at titude In this terrible European conflict, we nevertheless feel it our duty to be ready for any eventuality and to titlllxe theao days of pause In order to concen trate our energies. Hence It would be useful If we could esti mate at once on what contingent of active and serviceable feminine forces the National Council can count In order to put them at the disposition of the government If the need should arise. "We, therefore, appeal to our members to inform us who among them—and we count on their un animous consent—are disposed, should the need arise, to put their hands to any work, even the most humble, that may prove of service to the Motherland. Un der present conditions It would !>« premature to approach the gov ernment or the authorities, but lt Is necessary that we should feel ourselves united AND BH READY." CAItKFI L I'ltll'Mt t I IONS On the opposite page of this printed appeal follows a careful list of questions to be filled up. The women are asked to state whether they are married or sin gle, whether they can leave their town, how many hours a day they can devote to patriotic wor«, what (If any) is their profession, their habitual employment, and what branches of public service they feel themselves best fitted to undertake. "All these are carefully tabu lated and classified, and the can didates need only underline the branch In which they believe they 'Could be the most useful. I These Include running trams, cleaning the strets, the telegraph and telephonic service - the latter already almost entirely run by women—and also In the higher branches the care of hospitals, creches, dispensing medicine; In short, all the various branches of public service." Moi IIERLAM) ASYLUMS At the same time that the Na tional Federation put forward this appeal the woman's paper, "Donna," published a proposal put forward by Slgnora Ida Mag liocchettl, urging the utility of opening what she has named Asill del la Patria (Motherland asy lums) for children in war time. The offers that followed on these two appeals could only bo counted by the thousands. Let ters from quite poor women of the people, letters full of ardent, patriotic fire from younger girl students, from mothers of fam ilies, from noble dames, from old and young, poured "In." • • • Everything that foresight could foresee has been done as far as means at command would allow to fit the mighty hoet of Italy's refitted army for a decisive lap Into the arena of conflict when public policy shall presa the bit*
