The Old Dinner Napkin
How dear to our hearts are the scenes of this table, Refreshment it brings when the daylight is going
Wlieii fond recollections present them to viewg To use the old napkin were had for a week. '
The cold bread and butter, potatoes and roast beef, ' , , 2
The old grease-stained napkin. 1
The pitcher of milk and the apple sauce by it, The Old fmibstaiued napkin'
The cinnamon buns and the coffee always.
The junket, bread pudding and sugar dish nigh it,
And e'en the old napkin we used seven days.
And every loved dish that the training school knew. -
The old mussed-up napkin
XVe've used for a week.
How dear to our hearts are the years of our training.
Wfhen working and scrubbing and tubbing went on: 2
The old grease-stained napkin,
The old fruit-stained napkin,
The old mussed-u na kin . . . . P

And treading alone life's long, weary ways.
Wfhen night duty called us. till pale morns were waning.
And numerous milk-shakes were made in the morn.
VVe used seven days.

The cold ham and stewed fruit we hailed as a treasure, 1 I C T '
And e'en the old na kin we used seven davs
For often at n10'ht when returned from the ward, P '
We found them a source of exquisite pleasureg The old grease-stained napkin,
The days when the work had been irksome and hard, The old fruit-stained napkin. Q
How ardent we seized them with hands that were glowing, The Old mugged-up napkin i
And sausage and fried eggs abundantly ateg 'rye used Seven days. ' s 1

"The Land of Mananan
So the Isthmus of Panama was called until the Americans took
possession, with their energetic, progressive ways. To-day the same
spirit of Ngo-a-headness," the feeling of being part of a stupendous
undertaking, prevails everywhere. At headquarters of the Sanitary
Division of the Isthmian Canal Commission, on the side of .Xncon
Hill, is situated the hospital, commanding an extensive view of the
canal, from the entrance at llalboa fthe Pacific endb, to the Mira
Flores lock, the llay of Panama, with its many islands and the moun-
tains. Up-to-date in equipment, management and technique, and in
beauty of situation, the second in the world, it accommodates sixteen
hundred patients and gives work to four hundred employees, not
including the hundred graduate nurses. Every nation in the world-
lslindos, Scandinavians, Sicilians and Catelonians, Russians and Chi-
nese, Armenians and Turks, Arabians, Greeks, Negroes from the
adjacent islands, native Indians-all are to be found there at work,
and some time or other End their way into the hospital. One may
readily judge that life is none too easy with so many to be cared for,
and like the Shop Girl in the story, we have many times said, "Thank
Ciod for lyings down: thank God for taking oil shoes." Too tired
The "Repair Shopu
NVhat would we do without needle and knife?
Nux vonnca cocktails and elixir of life?
For acute ".eXppendicitis" or lack of ".Xppetitisg',
ltis such a boon to all "llu1nanitis."
So we listen to woes,
lleal crushed lingers and toesg
Mend dislocated parts,
l'atch broken C . . .3 hearts.
Some day from these walls we'll escape,
'lio put the world in better shape:
Picture us under the "phone" in the hall,
XYith suit case all ready to answer first call.
