ISTOPPHD In at the Xavy House yester
day and was awfully Interested In the
work being done there. It Is at 221 South
XMghtoenth you know, and the various or
ganizations with headquarters thoro hove
nil offered their hervlces to help the Influ
enza v lctlm3. .
Tho Navy House Is really a Club houte
for Navy Officer under tho nus'ilcea of
the Navy Auxiliary and the house, has been
remodeled and redecorated for this pur
pose. Besides being a club house there Is
a cafeteria attached and certainly that Is
pretty nice. Isn't It?
The Navy auxiliary of the Red Cross has
its headquarters there too, you know and
also the Department of Navy Itcci cation.
Then the Navy Auxiliary Motor Corps
Is also at this building and about fifty girls
belong to tint nnd work In relays day
after day especially through these trying
days. The girls In the corps take) tho
Navy Officers to and from the Navy "yard
but last week they devoted most of their
time taking doctors and nurses on hun
dreds of sick calls and carrying soup and
other food and remedies to tho stricken
households. Pretty good work, that, it
eecms to me.
The Navy -Hospital committee Is located
in. the same building I understand so you
Nee a great deal can be dono for the In
fluenza patients. Mrs. Stotesbury is chair
man of the Hospital committee anc has
associated with her Mrs. Dobscn Alt'emus,
Mrs. Milton Herold and Mrs. Alfred Grey.
DID you hear that Ethel Huhn Bailey
and Pauline Denckla are both down
With Influenza at Mr.- George Huhn's home
on Locust street? Ethel und Paulino took
up a three months course of Intensive
training at tho University Hospital and
when tho epidemic came they helped nurse
the patients. They both contracted the
disease and arc being taken cave of -t
Mrs. Bailey's home.
JEAN BULLITT, too! She has been
nursing at the' Pennsylvania hospital,
you know and several days ago started in
with a cold and fever, so they clapped her
i jnto Dea ana are Keeping her there until
her temperature becomes "normal. There
is' no sense In taking any risk these days
and so the sensible people are going to
bed the minute tho chill or fever comes.
Jean is. not very 111, and the;- cx.iect her
to be up and around in a few days She
and her father aro staying at the Creshclm
r. Arms in Mt. Airy.
kllE'N'T ciilldren tho dearest things?
I heard of two the other day, w'hose
father Is ill and whose mother left them
with an aunt while bbc" went to th: hos
pital to bo with him. t '
That same auntie owing to Illness of u
number of associates had tomo ery im
portant statistics to compile every night.
It was a thing that could not be put off.
So when her small niece sa. that tho was
bringing these papers home and going
over them after dinner each evening she
made this proposition. Could'n't she and
Brother help Auntie with her "atlstlcs".
Auntie being an understanding person,
and realizing that "useful occupation" was
the best thing posslblo for small nieces
and nephews', responded with alacrity. And
when 1 stopped in to see her tho other
evening, thero they were; Auntio in a
large chair and nleco and nephew on small
chairs on either side. Auntie with books
and papers and pencils: and Niece and
Nephew Armed with a picture book each
and a pencil. And every tin'i Ail"' made
a mark on her paper, Niece oiid Nephew
made a mark in their books. As I en
tered I heard Niece remark "Are wo rcallv
?aI helping you?" while Brother aged three
ncuoeu me question in a slirlli treble; "is;
wo 'hoping' you?" To which Auntie re
plied, "Indeed you are!"
And small nleco sighing said, "How for
iunate it is that we came to stay Jus,t when

Emergency Aid nldts and director of the

the result of hundreds of Interesting experi

Theie wits an artless simplicity In SaJI

stood apart her face shrouded; In her mantle,
motionless, as If the remembrance of these
bygone matters carried wlth.lt something of

was startllngly different. She listened In

If Sajlpona's tale was true the matter of

(or Una had been shadowed nil along by
an earlier, deeper sentiment that gavo It the
color of something that was not altogether
real. 'Why had ho nevevtold her of this
Indian romance? II pnotlsrn indeed !
What man could help kneeling In passion
ate adoration before this queenly woman,
whore beauty was of that glorious warmth
and fragrance belonging to the purple and
scarlet flowers of one's dreams, whose love
combined the unreasoning1 devotion of n child
with the proud lojalty that inspires martyr

there could bo no doubt of that. Ileforo be

lake, David hod stood soul to soul In a

blotted out! the tender Idyl of Derwent
water, of rtysdale, forgotten. Kven the sight
of Una herself stirred but tho vaguest rlpplo
of memory. There was mystery, certainly. In
the strange moods of forgetfulness from
which David was suffering. Her uncle couid
give them a learned name and account for

Tho Clvlo Club, through Mrs. Kdward Bid- -die.

appeal was to as many women as would
respond for nursing.!
Theso women have entered hospitals as -,
nurses' aides, doing the more prosaic Jobs
so that the trained nurses would be free to
give their skilled care to tho cases that
needed It. Other viomen have been making
the Influenra masks, and now they are ,Ta
making pneumonia jackets by the thousands. V.
