JiisUiipi Vallry Medical Monthly for
October: The picture we drew of
this institu ion ia an tditorial 3ait
month was a dark one, but the gloom
ia do greater than Is warranted by
facte. Actuated by a desire simply to
encourage the improvement of tbi
our only hospital charity, we thought
the object would be promoted by
pointing out this necessity, and' oar
imagination has supplied no coloring
to the picture, I our hospital then so
mush inferior In accommodations,

tims elaewhtre? Cf course could we
isolate our hospital, reduce it from the
ranks of the lapid progress ta kicg
place in the conduct and construction
ot such instUtt'ions and accept no
standard ol comparison, we might be
iudueed to conltes that tiiers wai so
aolutfiy nothing to make it pe-fect,
and that we 1 ava spoken whnt we
"wot not of." Thin, howevt r, is im

iininaiie community. We cannot
evade a omnarison betwuen our
charities and those clsswhero,
and we are lompfilled to be measured
by the high standard set by a univer
sal progress upon every community,
l'ari pam with tlie advarcs of every
city or people, in culture or enlighten
ment, has been the advance in the
number and character of their eloe
moaynary institutions. Ho true is this
that a scale representing tho amount
of pul)'ic care bestowed upan their
sick would be aimrst identical with a
scale representing the relative advance
in all that peitairs to civilization, it
requires no expert or scientist to tc-11
ub that a comparison between our iu
congruons affair and the magn licent

be invidious and hnmilixting to us.

MANITY? Have they not kept apace with the
rrogresa in tanitary science, or are
hey less benevolent aud liberal than
the people of othor cities? Their ex
cellent sewerage system, the ease with
' which their sympathies are aroused
and the munificent way in which they
answer appeals of distress from neigh
boring cities, as evidenced in the past,
(precludes such a deduction. We can
' only conclude, therefore, that the mat
ter has never keen properly brought
before them, that they have never
been awakened to the fact that we
have a hospital of antiquated construc
tion, very poorly equippod, and with
scarcely enough money to sustain it In
its present raisorable condition. Our
city authorities, ton, seem to be asleep
on their Watch in this particular. They
have been so actively engaged in pilot
ing the ship of state through the roll
ing waves of prosperity, iu widening
and strengthening the city's power
and fame, that they have overlooked
the institution which must always
serve as a guide to the depth of our
civilization. It is true that they have
no immediate power ot action In the
premises, but it is upon their recom
mendation that we must look for the
correction of this error of omission.
OUR HOSPITAL ,
ie sustained by a special tax of one mill
on the dollar, which yields an annual
earn of f 11,(00. It costs to collect this
about $232, leaving a not income of
$1 l.a8, with which to pay officer'
and atlcndauis' salaries and to meet
all the current expenses of the hos
pital. Taking the average yearly cost
for the p.st three years (1883-81-86)
o be jfiiboO, and estimating the aver
age number of patients in ttie hospital
each day during the time to b eighty,
we Had the daily per capita coBt of pa
tients only M.O cent. During I no
same tirua In the City Hospital at B;
,ouie the daily averages per capita cost
was 51.37 cent, while in the United
(States Marine Hospital at this pirt it
wat $J 32. But it s not necessary to re
eortio comparative figures to show that
the turn annually provided for its sup
port is uotsullicieiitforthe needs of the
institution. Inspection will convince
anyone at all familiar with hoBpita's
. of this fact, and we think it Is also
eviiicnc-d by the results of the service
there. All the buildings, except one

These are official figures gathered
from print'd records. An ara'ysis cf

p'ainer than word?. Our city being
a large railioad and commercial c inter
her hospital gathers patients f om a

This, at t&e firs', glance, might seem as
imposition, but in reality it is but a
natural siqaence to onr commercial
dtvaloptneut, an obligation always
Imposed and one that is el ways in
a oitt'i commercial obowth
and prosperity. It is a duty which
other cities gracefully iiiutne end dis
charge liberally, and one from which
Memphis should not sbriok. The
City Hospital at Ht. Lou's gets i's
patients from all over the West and
Southwest, while the Ghaiity Hospital
at U sw Orleacs gathers its pationts
from all over the world. If we under
take to rare for the sick who eater our
portals we should do it in a sty e
worthy a progressive and eDliithtened
community, and givs tbem all the ad
vantages which modern icience cflera
f ,r recovery. We cannot but think
thtt if our citizens were properly ap
p onched on this matter they would
feel the neceaiity of improving the
condition of our institu'iou and wou'd
be willing to submit to fome increase
in taxation to accomplish this end.
One serious objection, however, which
might, be uwd egainst this is that
under exitting lawd ciiiz ns of Mem
phis are n. t entitled to the privilitg) s
of the Iioipl al. Anyone who hes
lived in the city three mouths or more
must 'go to the Poorbouse, and the
poor of our city bad rather take their
chances of recovery mid equator and
poverty than to go to this place. .

VSlurM the Oltlea and
sw York, October 13. -The IW6um,
in lta criticism of Wilson Barrett's
."Clsndian," says: To the eye, to the
ear, to the imagination, there is some
thing in Lis presence, in his voics, in
his ans reserve and stately demeanor,
that shows the Heal 1o bs in full pos
session of him body and soul. This
ia the intrinsic worth of the perform'
anoe. and bv this it cuiiht to bo mea
ured and estimated ; not to much by
its executive ability as by its indica
tive spiritual significance; not so much
bv what it shows of the sctoi's tech
nical art ss by what it proves of his
individual dramatic nature. xne
world is not muck concerned, if at all,
with mera orofeesional skill. An
actor whose influence does not radiate
bevoad the limit which circumscribes
the effect of artistic proficiency can
imoart nothing of rplr.tual value
neither illumination, nor help,
nor comf it-to other cumin souls.
Those who sea Wilson Ba reit es
"Clsndian," and ho comprehend ttie
work, are mads bigner, purer ai a Deb
tor for their exper.enc ef it; and this
result supplies a sure tett of merit,
upon wuion doui iciur inn munur
may secnrly rely. Thus far it is
work of solid and sterling value. The
attributes in wnicu it is deficient are
weirdness and pathos. An immortal. ty
of mleory shou'd wiite a record on the
ravaged face and Ugur i such as cannot
be put into woids, should lublima'e
the whole man, and should make him
all the more myttical and pathetic
because entwined with an immortality
of voulh. This actor ia seemlrslv de
ficient in genuine appteciet on of the
supernatural and in really prefcued
knowledge ot eorow. As already pre

son Barret's acting is simplicity, and
yet it is not easy either to define its
distinctive character or to specify i's
charm. P.very successful sctor neces

Minnsapolis, Minn., October 13.
The Northweilern Milleraiys: The light
er flour output lait week was not un
expected. The product waj 146,000
barrels, aversirnii. 21,443 barrels daily.
against 151,88) barrels the preceding
week and 171,000 the coir sponding
time in 1885. Eighteen mil s were
running at noon t dy. The output
was 25.U0O tar.-els, but as the switch
men are in the strike it is uncerta n
about the product being kept at that
figure. If the s'rike is net settled it is
very probable that most i f the mills
will be compelled to cinee down Dei ore
the end of the week. Ttie coopers are
aleo engaged in a st'tke for higher
wane. The aupplv f barrels is un
certain, though no gr -at difficulty is
iroied for from this source. Tne
matter of a sufficient water power
is becoming a subjc'. of deep concern
to mill owners. Torsi well advised
claim that the mills will be troubled
