Work On Hospital Progressing.
With the view of having the W. W.
Massie Memorial Hospital ready for
occuDsncy at the earliest possible dateg
the work of Improving the old G. G.
White oroperty in While Adrtition,
which was purchased by the hospital
commissioners for that purpose, is be
ing pushed with all haste, and while
there is yet a large amount of work to
be done before the buiHing will be
thrown open, there 'is every evidence
of the keenest activity on the parti of
the contractors and those who have the
improvements under their supervision.
Notwithstanding the fact that there
has already been a vast expenditure
for the hospital.building and the im
provements so far, which has about
consumed all of the sumlus devised
lor the purpose, there will no doubt be
ample funds for the completion of the
work that has been undertaken, al
though it may be necessary to solicit

necessary to abandon the plan for a
colored ward at'present, but it is prob
able that a sum sufficient to construct
an addition and tfi out apartments for
the colored peoplejwill be raised. The
colored lodges of this.city have a sum
of $1,000 tor this purpose and a promi
nent business man oi this section has
made the proposition to furnish ten
per cent ot.the total cost for a colored
ward. It is said the entire cost will
be about S5.500. a little more than one

surgical wards. Five private rooms
will be located on the second floor, and
each of the three floors will have a
modernly equipped diet kitchen. A

floor, and the entire building is fitted
with an electric ca'l system. All of

Realiizng the importance ot utilizing
every available inch of space, the third
floor will be finished to the extent of
several rooms and m,which will be lo
cated an operating and sterilizing

lounging room tor the physicians and
surgeons who will devote their time
and labors tojthe ward patients.
In the operating room will be installed
an outfit, an order for which has been
placed with Mr, Edward Hutchcraft,
representing the Scanlon Morris Co.,
of'Chicago, which has been purchased
by,the physicians of this city ata cost
of $1,800. The expense of this "equip
ment is borne entirely by the local
physicians, and the funds for this pur
pose was made up between them.

There yet remains many improve

The traveling public is rapidly catch
ing on to'the city ordinance regulating
traffic and very few violations of the
ordinance recently passed by the City
Council are observed, and such viola

the new ordinance. The police for the
past week have been distributing cir
culars containing the ordinance and
are keeping a close watch for those
who do not observe the order of driv

and none will likely occur unless it is
evident to the Dolice that the law is
being purposely violated, at least not
until the public becomes thoroughly
acquainted with the law.
