Governor Coolidge said no such body ever east so gTeat an influence on hu tnan history as this company of Pil grims, in appearance weak, persecuted, . rejeetnl, despised and insignificant, "but jn reality strong and independent? a jn'ichty hoi-t of whom was not worthy, destine to free mankind."

HOSPITAL HAD THIRD OF BIRTHS The Total Maternity Cases During the Past Year We 96 NUMBE7 0)F PATIENTS GREAr"jY INCREASED Endov nt Fund Slightly Incr'ced and Mortgage l.ot Was Recced More than a third of the births in Barre in 1920 occurred at the Barre City hospital, according to the figures presented in the annual reports of that institution and read at the an nual meeting last evening. Reports of the institution also showed Ma.t the number of patients cared for during the year was 705, an increase of 225 over the previous year. The total in come for the year was $25,650.18, with expenditures of $24,97.87. The. total of the hospital endowment fund on Dec. 1, 1920, was $22,382.41, an increase of $1,229.72 for the year, and the indebt edness of the hospital was reduced from $25,350 to $22,761.06, or $2,588.94. The meeting, which was held in the city court room, re-elected Dr. O. G. Stickney aa ' president of the corpora tion, Dr. W. D. Rcid as vice-president, H. W. Scott, clerk, for the ensuing year, and James Mackay, Dr. W. K. La zell, A. C. Moore and F. E. Langley as trustees for three years. The reports submitted wel-o, first, that of the .executive committee, as follows: "Fulfilling the purpose for which it was designed the Barre City hospital has cared for more patients during 1920 than in any previous year, the total number being 705 as compared with 4S0 in 1919. These 70ii patients received 8,145 days' nursing, of which 253 days were free service, and 905 days were free care of babies. Births at the hospital for the year numbered 9. The largest number of patients in any one day was 39 and the smallest 10. The average for the entire year was 22 plus. Receipts from the care of patients totalled $19,051.01, but expenses considerably exceeded this sum as the cost of caring for the sick steadily in creased during the year like every thing els In order to help meet the shortage for this year the city appro priated $3,000 which gave much appre ciated relief in meeting current ex penses. From the war chesWund $5, 088.94 wa received and appTied on the mortgage debt. "The Ainsworth X-ray department is proving an important adjunct to the greater scope of the hospital's serv ice. The ladies' hospital aid gave their usual valuable assistance, both in help ing to supply the linen and in efficient ly conducting the annual bag day. More generous bag day contributions were received this time than in any previ ous rear. 4 "The $1,000 received from the Mrs. Helen M. Fowler estate, to be known as the "Stillman Wood"" endowment fund, was invested in 4',4 per cent gov ernment bonds with a par value of $1,200. "The steady growth of the institu tion's work, coupled with the seeming ly unwritten law for expenses of all hospitals to exceed the regular income, makes more urgent the need of in creased permanent funds. So it is sin cerely hoped that the activities of this institution may be extended through further endowments. There is no bet ter way to perpetuate a name and perpetuate it in a grateful manner than through a hospittal endowment fund. It keeps on doing good indefi nitely. In this respect how appro priate are the words of Chalmers, 'Do good, and leave behind you a monument that the storm of time can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love and mercy on the hearts of thousands; you will never be forgot ten'." The Treasurer's Report. To the officers and members of the Batre City Hospital association.
