have been formulated. Now, there
Is something tangible, definite, and
upon wl.deIt to act.
Our people all i;mi\\ I he noble ??!
forts made by the King's Daughters
ami of the neu I sum of money raised
by them lor Ihe erection of a hospital;
how they have lolled and rested m>i
from their labors. Their efforts
were certain of success?-in time; bill
the great need of the proposed in tl

the necessity of assisting the King's
Daughters in this work becomes ap
parent. They are the original movers
in the matter ami to them great praise
should he ascribed ami l?de? I Is, by
all who are acquainted with the facts.
it is now proposed to form a slock
company, buy the Holmes property
On Wast Main street and launch a

from a business standpoint, we ar<
hot prepared to say. The physicians
of Lauren., unanimously recommend
the selection of this spot as a situ and
the building for n hospital: ihe>
should know whereof they speak, and
we have confidence in their judgment.
Anyhow, the proposition i; before the
people and they are at liberty to ac

As stated, the promoters mean it.
.?like the hospital a paying liistiiu

It should declare dividends, and will

for the public good, true; but it can
he made a paying enterprise.
We hope the King's .Daughters will
buy as many shares of stock as (heir
funds will pet mil: that the cotton
mills of the city will subscribe; Ilia)
the railroad companies will invest;
that the Daughters ol the Confeder
acy win become stockholders ami
maintain a veterans' ward: and thai
all public spirited citizens, who have
Ihe community's good at heart will
talk it up. encourage the move and
Mibfrtcrlbe foi stock.
