TCbe CviDune Thursday. August SI, 1916 One reason that the Roumanian Government gives for entrance into the War is iheir desire la see the early cud of the conflict. The Allies will be glad of her co operation lor that veiy reason as well as for others. As a matter of fact, this consideration stands paramount with neutrals also. Ron nania was ever a calculating Kingdom, and her taking our part is a verj welcome sign that we are palpably getting the foe tin der foot. Roumania's rulers are not he sort to back anything that is in theii eyes less than a certainty. The doom of Bulgaria is now sealed. Reports thai have leaked out of that much-censored roun try indicate that the Bulgarians hid a I read \ come to the I o II 'or less conclusion thai they w mid soon he compi II ed to lay down 'heir arms, What must they think now thai R>n II inia h is joined fonts with the Entente We hear that 1'sar Ferdinand confines Ins pompous carcass to his palace in Sofia with occasional dips in a swift motorcar to his country seat. It is also said that the pro (lerman Premier carries his life in his hand. The Opposi tion party is growing apace and the Stamboulofliies will no doubt be glad to give the Monarch and his Minister a Speedy passage to the tomb if only the chance offers itself. We are all wondering whe I her the Greek people can be kepi out of the sii uggh much longer. Uxorious Constan tine may find 'hat his (ier man wife will have to sing small, and that his pei fidious to\ ing with the Cenlr d Pow eis is a losing game that must be precipitately aban doned. And there is the Young Turk party. Their hold on power must be growing painfully precarious As Turks have an odd way of disposing of enemies to their policies by resort to violence, the hold on life of Enver Pasha and his satellites is no doubt getti g more and more tincei tain.

The usefulness and valui of 'millions' in the destruction of mosquito larvae, and con sequenny in checking the spreadol the yellow fever and malaria in tropical countries where outbreaks of these OC cur, are now generally well I known. The Colonial Journal for Octobor 1915 refers to ducks as a preventive of ma laria and yellow fever, and gives evidence of their value in this respect. 'Ducks, which occur in all regions of the Globe, are among the greatest enemies of mosquitoes, and conse quently of yellow fever and j malaria. Their value in this| respect has been determined asf .Hows: By means of dams two pools of equal ana were made in a stream. Ducks were placed in one and fish in the other. The former was speed ilv cleared of mosquiti 1 -. whilst the second continued to maintain the insi Cts in all stages of developmi nt. Wild ducks weie then introduced and found to preferthe insei Is to all Other mods. At the end of twenty four hours no pupae were found in the pond, and after two days all the larvae had bet n destroyed. These experiments confirm the observations of William Lockwood, who found that duck was particularly adapt ed to devouring the larva; on the surface of water, and of McAtee, who found moscpii toes in the gizzard of a wild duck.

The Hospital Nurse.
"Did I not tell you, he tai I, that the
jewel I had foun I was alive, and that
it was a wumaii ?"
Papuan Legend
Til E officer! who have
been in tlie hospital
where the Grand Duchess Olga
Aleiandrovna works ;ire full
of in praises; everything is per-
fect, they say, and above all
the gentle, kindhearted com
passion <>f the Cirand Duchess
berSi If, \\ h sets to all an ex-
ample of motherly kindness and
p itifnt forethought. Hospital is
in the tear of the army, but the
wounded from the front have
all lo piss before it, so that the
doctors are in constant contact
with the cases that come in.
The new arrivals have lo be
bandaged and enabled to go
forward on their journey, or
(if unable to ilo so) left in the
hospital. There is, of course,
plenty to do for all ; for none
more than for the Grand Duch
ess herself. She helps to band
age, to wash and dress the
wounds, and to assist at opera
tioiis She is on duty night or
day, like any other Sister. No
one would suspect that she
dressed in a white apron with
the cross is a sister of the
Tzar. She scarcely rests. Night
or day she can be seen, giving
medicine.or helping the half-
powerless to change their posi
tion feeding any who cannot
feed themselves, or sitting next
to a patients bed, helping him
witrua-. pie, genial talk to pass
his \Hr.ry hours away. She has
that' rate gift of being just
where she is most wanted. Her
very presence, the sisters say,
gives courage^nd teaches pa
tients. Hefore They knew who
she was, our soldiers loved the
tender, humble Sister, who was
to kind to them ; but when, on
.leaving the hospital they learnt
her name (they had called her
| their Angel of Consolation)
their gratitude was deeper still.
I heir reminiscences are as nu-
merous as absolutely disinter
ested. There was printed in one
of our most popular papers a
testimony to her. Its author, an
officer, was wounded in the
left hand and left foot. While he
was being carried to the ambu-
lance a third bullet struck his
shoulder and he lost conscious
jnett He was brought to the
hospital where the Grand Duchr
ess works. He tells how a siste
of Charity of medium stature,
very slender, came up to him.
'I looked into her face, he said;
"it was very Under and kind.
Her eyes were full <>f pity. I did
not know who she was. 'My
wounds,' I said, 'aie really of
no import .nice.' Take off your
shirt,' she said ; "I must exam
ine your wounds .She can fidlv
moistened the bandage and took
it off. I was brought to the op
erator's room, and the wound
thoroughly cleaned. This was
very painful, as small bits of
the shattered bone clung to the
wound. 'Some cotton wool,"
curtly said the doctor to the
Sister who had examined me.
Some more! -seme morel he
impatiently adiled. Then:
'Quick, scissors ; lift the nrm ;
give me a syringe." She did all
in silence without hesitation,
but with such a sympathy for
me! Then came the turn of the
wounded foot. It had been im
properly dressed, and was in a
state of suppuration. The pain
of dressing was intense: I lost
consciousness for more than an
hour. When I was carried back
to my ward my face was bathed
for me, tea was brought me, and
the Sister stopped and asked me
about my home, my wife, and
my children.
"When I said that I must re-
turn to my men, she asked nie
if I was fond of my battalion.
Then, before I could answer, she
told me it was time to sleep,
and we would talk next day.
She rose to bid me good bye,
and, as a mother might, she
stroked my hair.
" 'Is it true,' I asked, 'that the
Grand Duchess Olga Alexan-
dra vna works here?' 'Yes. What
of that?' 'I should like to see
her.' Why?' she asked and smil
ed. 'Because it is just wonderful
for the Tzar's sister to do this

I said. 'Then kiss it quickly and
go to sleep,' said Sister, placing
her small, soft palm on my
mouth, I was bewildered. Then
pressing my lips to the hand, I
murmured: 'Your Imperial
Highness.' 'Call me simple Sis

that you promised me to sleep.'
Then she left me."
During all his time in hospit
al the officer was under the
Grand Duchess's care When
he left he carried to his home
memories of unforgettable kind

Another officer recorded her
goodness to him:
"What is troubling you?" sho
asked him; "your wound?'
"No; my boy was to enter a
military school, and I have no
news of him."
"If you promise not to worry,
I will telegraph.''
In astonishment, he asked'
"Ah! but will they nnsweryou?':
"I think they will," she quiet
ly said. And they did.
A wounded captain writes:
"In hospital she came to me
asking about my wound and
about my family. Next to me
was a very bad case. She bent
over him and stroked his head.
'You are better to day she said,
'I see that you are better. I will
take your temperature.' Shortly
afterwards a tall Admiral came
in. He went up to several pat-
ients, nmongst others to me. It
was the Grand Duke Alexander
Michailovitch. He told bis sis-
ter-in-law that she absolutely
must rest: she paid small heed
to hisdesire. Thus the laboured
like a minisering angel amongst

One reason that the Rou-
manian Government gives for
entrance into the War is iheir
desire la see the early cud of
the conflict. The Allies will
be glad of her co operation
lor that veiy reason as well
as for others. As a matter of
fact, this consideration stands
paramount with neutrals al-
so. Ron nania was ever a
calculating Kingdom, and
her taking our part is a verj
welcome sign that we are
palpably getting the foe tin
der foot. Roumania's rulers
are not he sort to back any-
thing that is in theii eyes less
than a certainty. The doom
of Bulgaria is now sealed.
Reports thai have leaked out
of that much-censored roun
try indicate that the Bulga-
rians hid a I read \ come to the
I o ii 'or less conclusion thai
they w mid soon he compi II
ed to lay down 'heir arms,
What must they think now
thai R>n ii inia h is joined
fonts with the Entente We
hear that 1'sar Ferdinand
confines Ins pompous carcass
to his palace in Sofia with
occasional dips in a swift
motorcar to his country seat.
It is also said that the pro
(lerman Premier carries his
life in his hand. The Opposi
tion party is growing apace
and the Stamboulofliies will
no doubt be glad to give the
Monarch and his Minister a
Speedy passage to the tomb if
only the chance offers itself.
We are all wondering whe
I her the Greek people can be
kepi out of the sii uggh much
longer. Uxorious Constan
tine may find 'hat his (ier
man wife will have to sing
small, and that his pei fidious
to\ ing with the Cenlr d Pow
eis is a losing game that
must be precipitately aban
doned. And there is the
Young Turk party. Their
hold on power must be grow-
ing painfully precarious As
Turks have an odd way of
disposing of enemies to their
policies by resort to violence,
the hold on life of Enver
Pasha and his satellites is no
doubt getti g more and more
tincei tain.

seven seperate attacks had

This attack was defeated by

DucKs ai a Preventive of

The usefulness and valui of
'millions' in the destruction
of mosquito larvae, and con
sequenny in checking the
spreadol the yellow fever and
malaria in tropical countries
where outbreaks of these OC
cur, are now generally well I
known. The Colonial Journal
for Octobor 1915 refers to
ducks as a preventive of ma
laria and yellow fever, and
gives evidence of their value
in this respect.
'Ducks, which occur in all
regions of the Globe, are
among the greatest enemies
of mosquitoes, and conse
quently of yellow fever and j
malaria. Their value in this|
respect has been determined
asf .Hows: By means of dams
two pools of equal ana were
made in a stream. Ducks were
placed in one and fish in the
other. The former was speed
ilv cleared of mosquiti 1 -.
whilst the second continued
to maintain the insi Cts in all
stages of developmi nt. Wild
ducks weie then introduced
and found to preferthe insei Is
to all Other mods. At the end
of twenty four hours no pupae
were found in the pond,
and after two days all the
larvae had bet n destroyed.
These experiments confirm
the observations of William
Lockwood, who found that
duck was particularly adapt
ed to devouring the larva; on
the surface of water, and of
McAtee, who found moscpii
toes in the gizzard of a wild
duck.
