Oct. 22.-In view of the great scrarcity of nurses and medical men v/ho are available in the province at the present, the provincial board of health � wishes to strongly urge upon every community the necessity of or.ganizing at once a nursing system, since they realize that by this means only anything like a satisfactory resu'.l can be obtained. Local boards of iiealth are requested to immediately work out some system, the details ot which may be arranged by themselves to suit their particular needs. It is recommended (hat any trained nurses that may be in tho community shouW be retained by tho board and held to do only visiting ] nursing. T'nder her should be.placed voluntary v.orkers of every available kind. If necessary districts may be arranged. With some one in charge and co-operation in each district much may be acconipli.shcd. A small note book mi.ght be provided in each house v,-here illness is iiresenf. The nurse after finding the attention necessary might leave instructions for voluntary workers. It might he necessary to provide cars to carry the nurses on their rounds. It is particularly requested that consldilration bo shown nur.^os and woikers by those among whom' they worl; since a nurse is in . groat danger of contracting the disease and It slie should become ill it may be impossible to replace her. Is Increasing Influenza is increasirtg throughout the province and urgent appeals for nurses are being received by tho provincial board of health each day. One small community ha.s called for no less than six nurses at once. The total number ccf trained nurses that have so far volunteered their services to the provincial board of health is about twenty-five. It can be readily appreciated that something in the way of systematic nursing must be started at once in these places. fOR YOUR HOMEY.
