Nurses who aii.' serving in hospitals In South Africa say it is astonishing how severely w. in< led many of the soldiers can be and still live.

A temperature of S8 degrees is considered cool. X rays are universally used in the hospitals. After a battle nurses and surgeons are on duty night and tlay in the " theatcis." as these places of suffering are ealleil.

The Knglish ainbnliince trains used In South Afiiea are declared to be mode l s of comfort a n j common sense, each belns splendidly equipped with a kitchen, pantry a m i ilise. ensary. The bunks are arranged on ciilicr side of a narrow center aisle aud have detachable sides, so that the patient can be easily slipped from stretcher to bed. One hundred men can be comfortably accommodated. As they are without water for. weeks on the field of battle, the men generally beg to be bathed before anything further is done for their telief. They are then put- to bed and operated upon If the case is urgent, though this Is not done on the train if It can be avoided. Each man Is provided with a shirt, sponge, brush, socks, handkerchief, knife, fork, spoon and cup within reach. The trains carry two nursing sisters, several trained orderlies and surgeons. In a recent tliscnssion in England as to when a nurse should be considered Incapacitated for duty It was stated that no age limit should be s e t Indeed, It Is claimed that age. s o long as It does not accompany physical Incapacity, has the advantage of yonth in the yartetl experience It brings to the work. .. = I t Is stated that those great universities, Harvard.
