THE QUEEN'S JUBILEE —A ————— A. RECOMMENDED FORM OF CELE- BRATION. Sin,-All loyal subjects of the Queen will wish to take some part in the commemoration of the complet on of the 60t.h year of Her Majesty's Reiyn. May we suggest through your columns that there is no more fitting form that this commemoration can take than that of contributing to the fund for endow- ing "Queen Victoria's Jubilee Institute for Nurses. The following is an extract from a letter which has appeared in the Public Press :— It is proposed to raise a large sum to increase in magnitude and endow in perpetuity, Queen Victoria's Jubilee Institute for nurses a woik of which the Queen herself laid the foundation, and to whieh she gave S70,000 in the jubilee year." Hospitals have done, and are doing, noble and most necessary work for tbe poor, but they cannot be established everywhere." "The merit of the Queen's scheme is that it is capable of practical and prompt application through the length Ili,) breadth of the United Kingdom, in the most out-of-the-way as well as ill the most popnlnns districts and comes to tbn assistance of the medical profession, by bringing under their direction skilled nursing ami care for the sufferers into the homes even of the very poorest." Queen Victoria's Jnhilee Nurses have now been at work nursing the poorest of Her Majesty's Subjects in their homes, for six years. To-day there are six hundred working under the Centres established in England, Scotland, Ireland, ajid Wales It is therefore no hew experiment which has to be tried. 11 Tiie direct benefit to the suffering poor of having skilled nursing in sickness in their own homes cannot be overstated afiart from the indirect, hut equally certain, good resulting from the constant visits of educated and devoted women to houses where order and cleanliness arc sometimes unknown, and where from ignorance of the simplest sanitary precautions ) illnesses are often prolonged, always made more I serious, lives endangered, and suffering greatly increased. "The work thus originated by the Queen in tender sympathy for the poorest of her subjects lias grown iar beyond the means so generously placed at the disposal of the Council appointed [ by Her A'ajestv to manage it. rtio £ 70.000 produces an iiutome of about £ 2000 a year, but to keep pace at all with the urgent demand for Nurses all additional £ 11,000 has been contributed by several gentlemen towards the annual expenses during the last three years, but a continuance cf this cannot be depen- detlnpon. The extension of the work to every town and district in the United Kingdom is only a question of money, and it is towards this object your help is invited." We ask those interested in this matter to form Parish Committees throughout the counties of Carmart hen, Pembroke, and Haverford west, to collect subscriptions from every inhabitant, in sums of Id. and upwards. Contributions may he paid to the treasurer, or to any local bank, to the credit of The County Commemora- tion Pond," and any information required upon tne subject will be gladly vivfcn by those whose signatures are appended to this letter. We are, sir, your obedient servants, CAWDOR, Lord Lieutenant of Carmarthenshire- W, J. BUCKLEY, High Sheriff of Carmarthenshire. W. N. JONES, Chairman of Carmarthenshire County Council. E. TRUBSHAW, (Treasurer), Chairman of Llanelly Urban District Council. J. W. NICHOLAS, Chairman of Llandilo Urban District Council. W. POWELL, Chairman of Newcastle Emlyn Urban District Council. H.
