Some That Were Made Famous By
Their Pith and Brevity
Of famous military messages there
arc scores, beginning with the never

i Caesar and that equally fain wis dis

met the enemy and they arc ours,' but
r both were hasten for brevity bv Gen
oral Sir Robert Boyd, who while gov

'beaf for his troops wrote to the agent
in England this laeonic dispatch:
"Browne, beef, Boyd," Browne sent
the stores with the reply, "Boyd, beeil',

with this neat dispatch taken from
Genesis xxxvii, 32: "Know now

The po(>e declined further intercession
and replied that the cont the king had

Every Woman a Nurse
Every woman, or at least almost
every woman, has. at one time <★ an
other or her life, charge of the personal
health of somebody, whether Child or
invalid—in other words, every woman
is a nurse. Every day sanitary knowl
edge or the knowledge of nursing, or,
in other words, of how to put the con
stitution in such a state as that it will
have no disease or that it can recover
ifrowi disease, takes a higher place. It
is recognized as the knowledge w"hich
every one ought to have—-distinct
from medical knowledge, which only a
profession can have.
If, then, every woman must at some
time or other in her life .become a
nurse—namely, have charge of some
body 's health—how immense and how
valuable would 'be the product oif her
united experience if every woman
woirld think how to nurse.—Florence
