Electrical contrivances have superseded steam

The old fashioned sailing ship is now an antiquated dream

We have wireless telegraphy and fly through air and sea

Play upon pianos and never touch a key

The good old stomach-ache is appendicitis now

We are eating creamy butter that never saw  a cow

Progression is our motto modern modes have come to stay

But thank goodness the Gisha and Nurses of

Cornwall Hall are of the good and

Kind old-fashioned sort.
