Printing of our large special Christmas number met with congestion of working plant, to be fol- lowed by congested mail service, forcing upon us a tardy delivery Fed- oral exhortation to decrease the em- ployment of white pper to some ex- tent was listened to and by the omis- sion, we helped to conform to our al- loted quota. The enjoyment of the Christmas holidays on the part of the employes, comiiletely tied .up the working plant. These excuses we offer to any disappointed readers and we herewith give assurance that we shall strive, during 1920, to have The Guardian in the Little Rock postoffice every Thursday afternoon During 1919, this was our record except on two occasions, when of necessity mail delivery was held up until Friday morning.

Here, as elsewhere, Christmas is es- pecially the children's day, and the children that were the're in other years are especially the paces who see that the childrens' ward is not forgotten. The following letter will explain this better than anything else: Redwood, Ark., Dec. 22, "1919. St. Vincent's Infirmary, Little Rock Dear Sistel: Herewith please'Ti'ml Postohce money order for ten dollars to help decorate.the Christmas tree in the Childrens' ward of St. Vincent's Infirmary. I am sending this small offering to keep up a practice started by my boy Will in the year 1910, just one year after the Christmas he spent under the care of the good Sisters at St. Vincent's. Sister, you remember Will, do you not ? The boy who ran away from his home here in Redwool, went to Little Rock, and there fell and broke his arm and was taken to your hospital, on the day before Christmas of 1909. You took him in., gave him the atten- t[on he needed and then obtained from him the information, that caused you to wire his mother and myself, thus relieving the anxiety we were under since our boy foolishly ran away. We arrived a* the Infirmary Christ- mas afternoon, and even after the years that have passed, I can still see the pretty Chri'stmas tree you had in the childrens' ward, and how really hppy our boy- was in spite o' the pain he suffered from his fractured arm. Sister, he never forgot that Christ- mas, and every year at this ime he sent you ten d olars for the children's Christmas: ree. Wil volunteered in the early months of the war, and in the spring" of 1918 was sent to France. We had our last letter from him in July, 1918, just be- fore he, was ordered to the St. Mihiel front He never came back His Buddy wrote me since that Will was one of the first "over the top" and that they buried him the next day. Sister, I am proud of that little boy who ran away years ago, and I know too, that were he here and alive today he would be sending you his remem- brance, so knowing his wish in this [ am sending it in his stead. Mrs. Cooper joins me in wishing ,rou and the Sisters associated with -oua very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Very sincerely yours, Tom Cooper. In the childrens' ward little Richard 'fie nine years, somewhat hampered by the necessity of remaining in bed, was nevertieless e]ljoyng the (lay. Ie his cot, long enough to give the in- formation that Santa Claus made his entrance through the window .ff the ward. as the room having no chimney, made his entrance in the customary manner impossible. Richard is quite an a'uthority on things pertaining to this part of the Infirmary as at pres- ent he is the oldest inhabitant, hay- ing been there a little over two weeks, so his statement as to the entrance of Santa Claus'must be accepted as final. Dinner, consisting of turkey and all the trimmings, was served to all, Sis- ters, nurses and patients, except in the few cases where somehm-d-heart- ed doctor refused to allow his patient to partake 6f the usual menu of the day. The afternoon and evening were en- [joyed by all as every one received vmts from frmnds and relatives. ha Christmas brings its joys even to a hospital was evidenced by the remark of a young lady patient, who although very sick, said nevertheless that this was the happiest Christmas she had ever spent.

GIBSON Death of Notable Physician--Valued Friend of St. Vincent's Infirmary Each generation has its best known and general favorite among the sev- eral walks of life, whose name has been a "household word" on the lips of the old and the young. Each com- munity has its frequently and promin- ently mentioned resident whose fame and name stands for the tone and type of its citizenry. Often, perhaps most often, name and fame is of a public official, one with the limelight of pub- licity given to his every act and word. Such names for a time are in the fore- ground, on the surface of our memo- ries, but they are of the passing, and soon give way to others. Once in a great while we find that there ha s been one among us, whom we thought we knew, and considel.d him known to everybody as we knew him, but only when death has taken him from us. do we appreciate the fact, that he was even more to us than we rea- lized, and in mentioning this to others, we discover that he was even more to them. Then we have it forced upon us, that he must have been a great man. This consideration of name and fame was brought home to Little Rock and Arkansas on Monday last, when announcement was made of the death of Doctor Lorenzo P. Gibson. Then was it, that his worth took on its full appreciation in his loss. Doctor Gib- son of Little Rock dead, gave him a place, city-wide and state-wide, in the minds and hearts of the thousands on thousands, who had cause so often to remember Doctor Gibson living, ad- finistering, sympathizing, con:oling, co-operating in the most serious events in their own lives, and the lives of others near and dear to them. His skill and virtue as a physician made him near and dear to all of us. In his death we know that we have lost a great doctor, a true friend, a most worthy citizen, whose memory will be of a blessing unto our home, our city and our state, as were his life efforts ever active for the health and happi- ness of these same homes. Perhaps, outide of his own famil. circle, Doctor Gibson will be missed more at St. Vincent's Infirmary, thor in other places. For years he made the Infirmary a veritable home in as much as he fathered there as a doctor ad as a friend. In him the Sisters of Charity always found a zealous co- operator in all the affairs of the hos- pital, which made for t'he well-being of the institution, its nursing staff and its patients. Truly did he make St. Vincent's his "workshop," wherein he wrought with skill and kind patience his wonderful success as a pradtioner The recent organization of the hospi- tal staff, placed him in tbe position o* head of the medical division and great were the fond hopes of future better- ment for St. Vincent's upon tis mo?t orthy selection of a leader. B'ut God in His goodness willed otherwise, and good Doctor Gibson's death leaves St. Vincent's Infirmary, Sisters, doctors, nurses and patients in sincere sorrow over the loss of a generous, broad- minded, devoted physician, councillor and friend. With Little Rock, with Arkansas, St. Vincent's Infirmary mourns the loss {of Doctor Lorenzo P. Gibson, and to his dear wife and family are extended the condolence of those fflo now with them sincerely feel this great bereavement. O Mystic Rose, what tree, Or flower, e'en the fairest Is half so fair as thee ? O let me, though so lowly, Recite my Mother's fame; When wicked men blaspheme thee, I'll love and bless thy name. --Father Wyse.
