This is a verv worthy canse and 1 one to which every citizen should cheerfully respond. “Yours truly, 0. G. Baldwin. ” 12-15 '03 Tho hospital is a worthy cause and there is no doubt as to the people’s support. This fund is being raised through voluntary subscriptions to build a morgue and reception room nt the institution. At the meeting of the Board of Governors last week it was stated that sometimes it was necessary to place a dead body in a ward where there are sick patients because there was no other place. This, as has already been said, should not be, as a sick room should be kept ns freo as possible from all thought! of death. At the present time there is no room in which to place a patient away from the others nutil the nature of tho disease is ascertained. Tlii9 is rnnning a groat risk. A reception room is a place, which, while neat and comfortable, can, iu case a patient had a contagions disease, be scrubbed from top to bottom and thoroughly disinfected before another one Is brought in. Th6 necessity of such a place in a hospital ( a i readily be seen. The local hospital has neither of these. It needs them. They are ab solutely essential to the proper care of patients. The hospital has demon strated its valne many times. It is sustained by the people. All the money that can be raised by fairs and festivals is needed for running ex penses. Tho hospital tins no rich per son backing it. It needs must be furnished by the small contributions of the wage earners of this city, who take a just pride in the institution. President S, R. FarriDgton has en dorsed the movement to raise a fund for this purpose. Any amount is acceptable. ' Following are the con tributions thus far: Evening News. $10.00 Lather M. Hope. 1 00 U. U. Baldwin.
