"NURSE, PLEASE CUDDLE ME,"
PATHETIC INCIDENT OF CITY HOSPITAL! LIFE
If one visited the wards of a city hos
pital he would witness a I strange con
trast of employment, - -condition and
emotion, says the Montreal Witness.
Doctors are hurrying about; the nurses
are active, -prompt and intelligent -serene
and cheerful under the most lace
rating experiences. In a full ward, life
will be at the ebb to many a patient,
and in thd case of him who is appoint
ed to die it needs the careful and ( sym
pathetic ear to catch the failing', ac
cents which would fain convey a mes
sage to those left behind, .or attest the
triumph of faith. The clergyman
kneels by the bedside of; the - dying,
while the convalescent patients laugh
and chat with one another sn the im
mediate vicinity of death.) The pathos
of these scenes is indescribable "and
there! is ah added poignancy in the buff
tie and activity which are seemingly
indifferent to the tremendous fact' f
death. Not that there is real indiffer
ence, i but the needs of the living are ino
perative, and it is found to be fatal tjo
usefulness to waste the sympathies over
every case whose ending is death. )
Doctors and nurses are grandly hu
mane. There may be among the fonri
er those who would say (with j rciet-
pital; died there. As the supreme mo
ment drew near, the motherj asked for
her son. Dehcacy and love p!aced a
screen about the dying bed; a piercing
cry of "mither, mither," announced! the
end. :, ''
Harry was taken back to the chil
dren's ward, where he tofobel and cried
for a long time, saying to the nurse,.
"Ohi nurse, cuddle me; oh, nurse"
cuddle me like my mither." ! j I
