NEW PRIVATE HOSPITAL PLANNED FOR WENATCHEE Dr. W. M. McCoy Buys Site for Handsome New Structure on Nob Hill —Com- mence Work at Once Dr. W. M. McCoy, one of W'enat chee's best known physicians and surgeons, yesterday purchased three beautifully situated lots in the Nob Hill addition, upon which he plans to erect a fashionable private hos pital. The new structure will have seven ty-five foot frontage, will be two stories in height, and built with a view to perfect comfort for its oc cupants coupled with the highest de gree of sanitation. All the surgical and other equipment will be of the most modern and practical nature, and nothing will be left undone to give Wenatchee a high class private hospital. The site of the new building will be just opposite the residence of J. M. Jack, one of the best locations in the city. Ground will be broken for laying the foundations of the new building at once. Dr. McCoy was formerly in charge Paradise Valley News Notes. Did the reader ask, where is Para dise? For answer we would reply. In the center of the fruit growing districe of the Wenatchee valley, about three miles above Cashmere. The sun never shone on fairer land than i 3 Paradise valley. It is like Jerusalem, beautiful for situation. Our community was much perturb ed last week over a report that an was to be made to have the Henry bridge, which was damaged by the flood last fall, taken down and relocated across the river at a point above the old Thomas Stewart ranch. Several of our citizens were before the county commissioners at their recent meeting, with a numer ously signed petition to have the bridge repaired and to protest against its removal. Success crowned their efforts, for not only is the bridge to he repaired, but we are promised a new and more substantial steel bridge two years hence. The old bridge will be used to bridge some smaller stream. For their efforts to secure a bridge the people of Pe shastin are to have a new steel bridge the coming summer. Everyone is pleased at the result. At the same time there was pre sented to the attention of the com missioners the urgent need of a road to run south from W. M. Kinney's house, up through the upper part of the valley, and over across the ridge to Schmitten's saw mill. The pre liminary work having been done and the survey made, the road was allow ed by the board, to a point above the Peshastin ditch, where it was halted, by reason of one of the property owners refusing to sign a waiver. This road across the hill would prove a great convenience to all con cerned, even to the obstructionists, if only they could see it that way. As it is the road opens up to the highways several hundred acres of fine farm and fruit land. Many thanks to the commissioners. $3,500 Lot 100x270 feet with bearing orchard and modern dwelling, five blocks from postoffice. Terms $6,600 Lot 100x270 feet with modern dwelling and bearing orchard. Cost of house $4000. Terms. Lm V. Weilm of the hospital at Leavenworth, hav ing been stationed there for some two and a half years. About two years ago he removed to Wenatcbee, and at present lias apartments in the Columbia Valley Bank building. In creasing practice has compelled him to seek larger quarters, and the building of the new hospital is the result. It fills a need felt here for a long time, as in the past surgical cases and others requiring the treat ment which only facilities of a large, well equipped hospital can render, have been obliged to make the long, rough journey over the mountains to Seattle, or go east to Spokane. Miss Lawrence, the well known professional nurse, will become mat ron of the new institution. While the hospital will be prac tically a private institution, still ar rangements will be made with the authorities for the care of charity patients as well. It is reported on fairly good au thority that the Great Northern rail road company will put in a siding at Paradise this summer on the land donated for that purpose by Messrs. Amos and Cade. This is good news. Then with a depot and warehouse, Paradise will have a shipping point second to none in the Wenatchee val ley. Already we can foresee a sprightly town springing up there. With a bridge across the river at Sherman's mill, together with the bridges now in place and those or dered or in process of building, there will be a good road from Leaven worth to the Columbia valley, free from the laborious and dangerous grades. With the advent of the oft repeated trips of the modern elec tric car, which in this day and age, like the telephone, are almost a ne cessity, we shall become really quite cosmopolitan. Dreams? No, reader, not dreams, these times will be ac tualities at no distant day. Let the good work go on. Talk for it, work for it, rustle for it. Nothing hastens the development of a country more than the frequent trips of the trol ley car. Observation has proved that if a community is to be developed and Improved, nothing will do it quicker than to push the electric lines. Improvement follows as a re sult. Several new houses will be erected in the Paradise district the coming summer. We welcome the arrival of the new settlers. There is room for more. Mrs. Henry Kimber, who for sev eral weeks has been seriously ill with typhoid fever, is now convalescent. We are glad to hear of her promise of recovery. The recent arrival at their home of a bouncing boy, is the pride and home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Miller. Several thousand trees will c planted this spring in our vicinity, principally apple trees, the soil being particularly adapted to the growth, perfecting and coloring of the ap ple. The Big Red Apple does well here. Mr. Lawrence Cade's little girl was quite sick with a fever last week. For a time it was feared she was going to have a siege of typhoid fev er. Prompt attention by Dr. Martin warded it off and the little girl is now convalescent. W. M. Kinney, Thomas Henry and Dr. C. H. Burbank were visitors at Wenatchee last week, looking after matters of public interest. W. C. T. U. Pres. Makes Report. The following is the report of the president of the W. C. T. U. for the term commencing August 10, 1906, and ending January 25, 1907. We have held regular sessions at the various homes of members at in tervals of not more than two weeks and often once each week when ne cessity seemed to demand. Your president has been able to preside at all meetnigs except two and conduct devotional services, usually assisted by some other member. . Daring the term we have held one WEXATCHEE, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 1907. institute of two days' duration, giv en one entertianment, three dinners, three suppers, provided two lunches and for a week kept a sale of Christ mast dolls, aprons, etc. We have realized from our own efforts $186 and have received dona tions from business men of $87, also a fine clock. We have secured 20 periodicals for the reading room, from time to time added new books to the library and through the kindness of the pastors of the city and vicinity have been able to continue the gospel servics on Sunday afternoons. We have secured ten new active and four honorary members, lost one by removal. We have many reasons to fesl en couraged by the prosperity accorded us, the loyal support of citizens in general and sincerely hope that God will give us greater blessings and more opportunities of usefulness in future. Respectfully submitted, FANNY C. LIVINGSTONE, President. Name Worried Him. A petition was recently filed in a Tennessee court by a man named Damm asking that his name be changed to Hamm. The petitioner, a native of Denmark, set forth in his complaint that his name had caused his considerable annoyance. His feelings had been particularly hurt since the souvenir post cards de scribing "The Whole Damm Family," were placed on the market. The court changed his name to Hamm. He probably feel 3 that a name that is "on the pork" is preferable to one of the Damm variety. PLENTY OF HOT BASE BALL PROMISED WENATCHEE FANS Waterville and Wenatchee Fans Active — Veterans and Dark Horses to Try Out Sunday—Four Team League Manager Algernon Dickson, of the Waterville baseball team, passed through Wenatchee last night en route to Seattle, in the interest of his nine, though he went ostensibly "on business." It is understood that in Seattle he will endeavor to pick up a few semi-professional players for the approaching season. They have a neat little game up at Waterville of securing "jobs"—nice, soft ones —for prospective players, and then running them in on the astonished fans at the opening game of the season. It is believed that a similar plan will be attempted with the local team. Waterville now has a swift, snap py team, including Packenham and Russell, who played last year with Wenatchee. Two hundred dollars a month has been subscribed, for a four-months' season, and games have already been arranged for with some of the best amatuer teams in the northwest, including Blair Business College of Spokane, the State Uni versity team, the Superiors of Seat tle, Monroe and other coast towns. The Wenatchee Swatters are be ing marshalled and organized by Slats Green, and efforts to secure a diamond on the site between the de pot and the river are being made. This land is the property of the We natchee Development company, and Judge Burke has consented to allow it to be used for baseball grounds. Courtway Brothers will level and prepare the grounds for $500. This amount could no doubt be raised by popular subscription in a very short time, and beyond the expense of fit ting up the grounds the team would be self-supporting. On Sunday the players, old and new, will trot a few trial heats out at the old fair grounds, and a pros pective team selected from the show ings made, which team will play Waterville a week from Sunday. Frank F. Keller, the old time east ern magnate, will be asked to man age the Wenatchee team during the coming season. An attempt will also be made to induce the Comercial Club to assist in making the Wenat chee team a success. Manager Dickson of the Waterville team will return from Seattle Satur day, and it is expected that the man ager of the local team will confer School Directors to Discuss New Building. The board of directors of the We natchee district have called a school meeting of patrons and tax payers from the northern part of the dis trict to meet Friday evening at the Lewis-Clarke schoolhouse. The question of erecting a new brick school building will be discussed. The directors are particularly urging all interested persons in the north end to attend this meeting, and take part in its deliberations. The necessity for a new school building in this part of the district has been talked of for many months. Three years ago there were only a few residents in this district, but since that time the influx of popula tion has been so rapid, that the pres erf building is now full to overflow ing. Furthermore, the building it self is in poor condition, and it is only justice that this portion of the district should have equal school fa cilities will the rest of the section. The size and nature of the build ing desired will form the theme of Friday night's discussion. Fought for Five a Side. MacPherson and MacKay, two Scottish clansmen, partook of strange fire water with the usual result last night. In the fullness of time, which happened to be about ten o'clock, they fell on each other armed with those primitive weapons, the fists, and pulled of a few evenly contested rounds in front of Leavenworth's place. They told their troubles to Judge Palmer this morning, and t* collected five each, admonishing them to go and sin no more. with Dickson over the telephone Sun day evening, and complete arrange ments for the game to be played with Waterville a week from that date. Among the available timber from which Wenatchee's team is to be chosen are Lumsden, Fred Reeves, Jack Overdorf, Brownfield, Belser, Bigelow, and a number of newcomers and "dark horses" whose fancy stunts with the sphere and club will be observed at the fair grounds Sun day. It is hoped that a four-team league may be perfected for a series of games during the coming season, in cluding Waterville, Wenatchee, Wil son Creek and Quincy. Both of these latter have good players and there is every probability of a league be ing organized. Hotel Arrivals.
