A Great Net of Mercy dtawn thtpu an Ocean of Unspeakable Paitt THE BUND AND THE MUTILATED By Dr. ESTHER LOVEJOY I N the, years to come this war will prove a blessing to the blind. A new world is being evolred Nature has at least one extraordinary sense in reserve for those who lose any of the five ordinary senses The blind feel things that are not within reach They are conscious of vibrations that are not perceptible to seeing men. The sightless learn to read very quickly by the Braille method. It is interesting to watch the face of a blind man as his fingers pass over the upraised dots of a Braille book and his mind peiceives the mysteries recorded there for him. They have special stenographic machines and special printing presses. Books and magazines are translated into the written language of the sightless Men bhnded in battle are acquiring great skill in^he textile arts, as moulders, and in other industries where a highly developed sense of touch is essential to good work The higher type of blind men have great personal charm. Their souls seem nearer the surface They are peculiarly beloved people, and their clairvoyance makes them conscious of the kindness and affection with which thej are regarded. Naturally they react to it Perhaps that is why they usually seem so happy and cheerful. Unfortunately there are forms of mutilation which have the opposite effect When a man knows that he is repulsive to every man, woman and child who looks upon him; when he shrinks from the reflection of his own disfigured face hi the mirror, and shudders at the strange sound of bis own voice, he wants to die. A great deal is being done for these mutilated men They are being refitted with arms and legs Plastic surgery is doing its part, too, in the \\a.y of restoring palates, teeth and facial contour, and the American Red Cross in Pans is attempting to make life more livable for 1 hem by providing masks which restoie their original features They will be useful members of society, but the soul of man craves more than service Life and liberty are precious possessions, but the pursuit of happiness is the dearest right of man We are all alike \Vt w ant to go through life with the sweet illusion that the blue bird of happiness is just within reach, and this ilmsi(j0n is almost impossible to.the disfigured man It is the sacred duty of all thoje who have been bene- »hted by their sacrifice to leave nothing undone to restore their usefulness ; to employ every art to increase their mental and physical powers and the charm of personalities, to the end that then lives may be enriched rather than impoverished by the fortunes of war.
