Ilrport for Vrar. ,
The report submitted, by the secre
tary gave statistical facts concerning
the number and character of" cases
treated at the hospital during the year.
There were operations performed,
over half of which were major. oper
ations, and death resulted iu 14 of
these canes. There were 33 typhoid
fever sufferers, four of whom died; 12
cases of pneumonia, three -of which re
sulted fatally, and 17 obstetrical cases.
There were 40 deaths at the Institution
during the year out of a total of 624
cases treated. This might seem high
were it not for the fact that so many
of the persons who died were brought
to the hospital when they were past
all hope of recovery.

A Cheap Tailor is
He can't give even as good

fries to meet ready-made prices
and to give special order facil
ities. The result is a botch.
Medium priced clothes can be.
bought at a clothing store with
every asstirati9e of reliability,
but low grade tailoring is worth
less. The expense of making
each suit singly is too great to
, allow anything except the poor
est gpade of workmanship,
: and the hand-work in clothes is
the only thing which keeps the
shape. The cheap tailor hasn't
enough of a margin left after
he has calculated his cloth and
his special cutting to put any
thing but the most desultory
craftsmanship into his fabrics.
He merely cuts his suits, but
he has them, made-in sweat
shops. No other system will let
: him come out even. Good tail
: oring -is . expensive, but it is
worth while. A merchant tail-
or cannot produce better gar
, ments than ready-mades and
meet ready-made prices while
he is doing it.
