Thanks are tendered to the many kind friends who have contributed to the advancement of the good work done at the Infirmary. Free Beds and Rooms Among the many ways in aiding the t Sistdrs in their great work of charity is the maintenance of free beds 'and private rooms. A free bed may be maintained in a ward one year for the sum of $300; a private room for $500, a perpetual free bed for $5,000, a per- petual free room for $10j)00. Nurses' Training School The training school for nurses at St. Vincent's, Under the care and di- rection of Ven. Sister Bernarda, is one of the most creditable training schools in the South, sixty nurses being regu- larly in training. An alumnae of 200 members known as the St. Vincent' Alumnae Association is one of the very energetic and active organiza- tions of the city. Nurse Department The Staff organization has adopted the national curriculum for the St. Vincent's School for Nurses, as pre. scribed by the Joint Committee of the three national nursing organizations.

A PARABLE A certain Mr. Maitland, referring to the conversion of Mr. G. K. Chester- ton to Rome, had something to say about the "failure of Christianity." Mr. Chesterton replied very briefly l with and simple. We plain a parable, quote from the Ave Maria: "Mr. Chesterton employed a little illustra- tion: "'My mother tells me not to climb a certain apple-tree to steal apples, sisters and nurses and the medical men in the neighborhood of the hospi- tal are invited. The program consists of a scientific paper by one of the staff members, twenty minutes in length, on a sub- ject announced at the prewous meet- ing. This is thoroughly discussed by the staff members whose suggestions are noted by the essayist. The latter revises his paper and reads it later at an mportant meeting of some medical society whose proceedings are published in the medical journal.

"I WILL" "Will you hold this fort ?" asked General Rosecrans of General Pierc( at Stone River. "I will try, General!" "Will you hold this fort?" "I will die in the attempt." "That won't do. Look me in the eye, sir, and tell me, will you hold his position ?" "I will," said General Pierce, and he did. Note how General Rosecrans re- fused to accept "I will try," or even a promise "to die in the attempt," as a satisfactory answer to his question. What he was after was the "I will." Note also the form of his question: "Wi]l you?" not "Will you try," Beware of the "I will try" frame of mind. It is not very far removed from the "I can't" attitude. Cultivate the "I will" habit. Ask yourself each morning: "Will I make good today?" And let your answer be, "I will." How about that bad habit of yours ? The Liguorian. .HEALTH, WEALTH AND FRIENDS Dr. James A. Walsh, .in a paper contributed to The Queen's Work, quotes an English writer as saying: i'There are three great arguments for atheismhealth and wealth and friends. When we have these we do not need God, and it is comparatively easy to persuade ourselves of His non- existence. Should we lose our health and lose our wealth, and therefore, of course, our friends, we are almost sure to come into a state oT mind in which we know that there must be a God." This, says Dr. Walsh, is after all only a drect personal way'of putting the best explanation we have of the mys- tery of suffering and of evil in the " world. MORE NEEDED' John D. Rockefeller took a little girl in Cleveland to ride in his car and after she had comfortbaly seated her- self, he asked her, "Where would you like to go?" "Oh, I don't care," the little miss replied. "Where do you want to go?" "I," Mr, Rockefeller replied with a twinkle in is eyes, "I want to go to heaven." "Oh, Mr. Rockefeller,'" the girl ex- claimed, "I guess you haven't got gas- oline enough to take you there."

A gentleman wished to make his wife a present of a scarf but had no desire to pay an extravagant price. "I want you to buy a new lace scarf for cousin Amelia," he said to his spouse. "Choose something nice-- something you would get for your- self." The wife, however, had her own ideas as to generosity in buying pres- ents, and the purchase.when she made it consisted of a very simple article. "H'm!" said the husbami, "is that what you would have chosen for your- self ?" "Exactly!" she replied. "Well, my dear, keep it. I meant it for Y0U! '' he explained, with an amiable smile.

"You think you are gold because you are bright, but you are only cheap brass," said the dollar. "I am what I am ,and claim to be no more," mildly replied the penny. The dollar swelled up with pride.

" FAMIL Y REUNIONS At the Battle of Murfreesboro, the army of the North was led by two Catholic officers, General Rosecrans, and his chief of staff, Colonel Ga. reecho. When, in the course of the battle, word came that'the right wing was being driven back, and dire disas- ter was imminent, Colonel Garesche rushed to the front to save the day. Into a scene of confusion, through disorganized lines and retreating troops rode he and General Rosecrans. As they passed into the exposed ground, a soldier asked an. orderly: "Who ai:e those officers. '' "Rosecrans and his chief," was the answer. "Well," said the soldier, "if they can go out there, we can follow." So they did. Tim men caught en- thusiasm from the mere sight of the brave Colonel, reformed their ranks, and drove the enemy from the frielct It is the old story--words teach, but example fairly drags us on.
