-;0:- AIR, LIGHT, AND CLEANLINESS. Before you leave the ward, take a look round. It is a modern, up-to-date hospital, and we may learn something. First of all you see enormous windows OIl both sides of the ward, because we believe in the cura- tive power of light. You do not, I am afraid; your house is not always chosen for its bright aspect; you shroud your windows with heavy curtains, and you do all you can to keep the sunlight off the carpets, because it takes the colour out, forgetting that if you block out sunlight you take the colour out of your cheeks. Then pardon my calling your attention to the fact that the windows are wide open. Yes, that baby in the cot near the fire has broncho-pneumonia very badly; that is why we open the win- dows, so that the baby can have good air to breathe; if we shut the windows it would die. Look at the corners of the ward; fhev are rounded off so that the dust cannot hide in the old-fashioned corners, and the tops of the cupboards are covered with glass, which i« carefully wiped down once or twice a day. There is no dust on top of the cupboards here.
