More thnn 87,000 graduate nurses

nursing service In foreign countries
where the American Hod Cross lias or
ganized hospitals, dispensaries nnd
ibchools f6r nurses'. Courses in Home
hygiene nnd care of the sick haVe been
started for tllousitndK of women who
Iihc necr received any cdUcutlon In
this direction. Itural n ursine which
Mas In Its Infancy n short while ago
has been put abend at least a decade
through the work of the department
of nursing and local lied Cross
Public health nursing has been ex
tended to many 'rural' communities and
now flourishes actively In hundreds of
small towns nnd counties. Nearly a
thousand efficient nurses have, already
been assigned to this kind of work.
The department of nursing Is unit
log with other organizations In a year's
campalga In recruiting: nurses for
training schools, In educating the gen
eral public as to standard of nursing
education and In showing communities
their responsibility1 toward schools of
nursing. It will endeavor to meet nil
these needs ns well as to continue the
enrollment of dietitians who will he
utilized as Instructors In home (dietet
ics, In developing nutritional clinics,
and In supplying dietitians for the
United States Public Health Service
and Clio civilian hospitals. ""
The Nursing Service will continue to
offer to women and young girls tbo
opportunity of securing Instruction In
home hygiene and cars of the sick In
every community in the country, This
Instruction lias not only laid the foun
dation for public health but in some
placet has given Impetus to the estab
lishment of hospitals and community
"As a -community profits by the work
of r the narse,!' vayn Miss Clara T.
Noyes, director -of the' department of
nursing, "it Is logical that' the com
munity should be aroused to Its respon
sibility. The American lied Cross
stands ready to help In a general cam
paiga of recruiting and must have the
support, sympathy and understanding
of the medical profession as well as
the Intelligent co-operation of the
people at targe.'

to shine. Clocks did not come Into
use In Europe until the Thirteenth
century. Portable clocks were not In

Fifteenth, but win dials were very
commonly worn not set up In gardens

generally In this country until the
rnrly part of the Nineteenth century,
nnd even today, where conditions lire
primitive, they ore tho reliance of
gulrles and huntsmen. Occasionally
they become fh timepieces of tho

How People Die In India.
A return of the number of Inquests
held by tho coroner of Uombny during
1011) gives m some very Interesting
particulars. Among the "suicide" we
find that six cut their throats, 28
drowned themselves, four hnuged
themselves, 15 jumped out or windows,
20 took opium, arsenic or home other
poison, four shot themselves nnd
eight burned themselves. Drowning,
therefore, took pride of place last
ear, whereas self-poisoning was the
favorlto method of quitting llfo In
1018, there being 21 cases reported.
Other suicidal practices mentioned In
the report are stabbing nnd tho net of
knocking one's head against a wall.

methods during the past two yeatji,
