, rldors ahleh do not have It at present
hns been ordered, and other mraavre
Till bo token to insure the largest
measure of quiet possible." i
Recent patients at the institution
have complained of the noises which ia
terferad with tbeir rest daily and
niphtlr, ' ona . woman patient having
gone home a few days After an opera
tion because she could not Wp on a-
rnnnt of the many footsteps, bells,

to explain to everybody just what they
rrieaa, and see tint they are observed.
'The bonpital is to be divided into
different working departments with a
single head ove. each, said Clegs, nnl
tht bend of earn department such a
rmrninr. diet, and so1 forth, will be en-
- Mralf i rasponsible fvr the conduct of

..of-faHjr.lt 4a enlarge fat saan to
administer units the department plan
is folio wad. !
Knraes Nseded
At. the present time many of the
complaint of lack of attention eomina
from patient are duo to the fact that
there are not enough pupil nurses to
care for the many private rooms and
wards. The hospital baa been run
ning full, and the force of girl could
not attend to the number assigned to
A few weeks ago there was one pupil
nurse as night nurse on one of the
floors who had tinder her charge each
nicht from fourteen to sixteen patienas.
It is almost a physical impossibility
for on girl to attend to that number
of patients In private rooms, as these
wire, but this girl w on duty night
sfter night from seven p. m. to seven
a. m.
This condition will soon be improved,
as ftuperintendant Clegg said that a
new class of twelve nurses will be
started the first of next mouth.
The pupil nurses' home is bIho to be
improved, in order to give the girls
some form of social life and make tbeir
hospital quRrters morn romfortahle. A
rm-pptinn room, lecture room, and new
dining mom will be added for them at
once. Thev have now no reception
room in which to see frinnds or rein
tives, nor any lecture room in which
fHeir fr"",'nt evening lrture can ke
given. They are iisinir their old din
i'ir room for their studies.
Will Take Time
"To bring about any noticeable im
provement here will rnquire time,"
said riegrr. "and though evervthisg
possible wi'l be done to brinf op the
standard of the institution as it stands
ti'e hosnitil can never be what it ounht
to be until it kas the new buildings..
"These will be planned after ths
most approved hospitals of the enst, nd
will he built with tb rKt kitchens en
the top floor, to avoid all kitchen
noises and smells: The first buildiac
to be pn " will be one of the unUs
which ' :li later form a wing of the

private rooms, and it I my intention
to rent them for the smallest sum at
which expenses may be covered. It ii
hardly possible to feed and lodge a pnti
ent under three dollar and a half or
four dollars a day, but weyihall trv to

"This hospital i peculiarly a com
