Our Pnirllc Schools.
Our    friend    of    tlie   Vancouver
fferalil   returns   to   the question of
placing the public schools under the
management  of local trustee boards
who   shall   find the funds necessary
for   their   support.       He   does  not
think  the objections to that scheme
mentioned   by   the   Columbian are
worth   much consideration.    His reply   to our  remark that the cost of
making  assessments and collections
for   school   purposes would full very
heavy   on small communities is that
men   would   do   that  work without
compensation   at   all for the sake of
securing   a   school.      We are quite
sure our cotemporary's philanthropic
nature is   misleading him.    Our observation and   experience lead us to
a. very different conclusion.     While
members of municipal councils often
do a great deal of public work without   reward   because of the honor of
the   position   which gives them authority   to   do   it, we  have not yet
heard of any person who voluntarily
performs   the   office of assessor and
collector   at nates.       We  are afraid
the   arrangement would not work at
all, and   we are quite sure it would
not work satisfactorily.    The school
system   of  this   province  is one of
the    most   liberal in  the Dominion,
and   although   it   may fail in many
instances   to   meet   the peculiar circumstances  of this country of magnificent   distances and   sparse population, we are not sure that the time
has    quite    arrived for  the change
which    our    cotemporary   seems  to
think   should   be instantly granted.
We   are  entirely in accord with our
cotemporary, however, with  respect
to   the   probable   benefits thnt will
come    from    the   scheme when the
time conies for its application.
Oar Western Malls.
This
morning the new train service on the "Westminster and Vancouver branches of the 0. P. K.
went into operation. This new service gives us two trains a day over
our branch, and a fuil daily service
between this city and Vancouver.
The establishment of this daily
train service with Vancouver, where
connection is made with a daily
steamer to and from Victoria, suggests the propriety of a change iu
our Victoria and American Pacific
coast mails. At present mails come
to this city from Victoria every day
but Monday, comingoneday direct by
steamer and the next day by steamer
to Vancouver and by stage across
the peninsula. The mail coming by
way of Vancouver reaches this city
about 1 o'clock, and the one coming
up the river does not arrive usually
till 3 or latter. As far as the mail
service is concerned, therefore, it
would be very much better for us to
receive all our Victoria mails by
way of Vancouver. We presume
the mails between the two mainland
cities will now be carried by railway
instead of by the stage, and they
will, therefore, reach this city regu
larly on arrival of the morning
train at 12:23: This regular and
reliable service being established,
there is no reason why our mails
should not come every day by that
route. Instead of reaching us some
times as late as 4 and S o'clock, as
has often been the case, they would
then reach us with regularity before
1 o'clock. .For our readers know
that it is the intention of the 0. P.
N". Oo. to take the str. Ypsemite off
the Fraser River route, and replace
her by the Rithet—and they know
that the Rithet can never be depended on to make schedule time.
Our suggestion applies only to the
mails for this city. Mails for Lad-
ners and other points along the
steamboat route would come, of
course, by steamer just as they are
coming now. We hope the post-
office inspector will give this suggestion his early attention. Its reasonableness must commend it to the
judgment of himself and everyone
who considers the circumstances. It
is a matter of much regret that the
. Fraser River service is to be performed hereafter by the Rithet. She
is a good enough steamer for river
traffic or for fine weather, but utterly unfitted for traffic across the
•straits. Last year when she occupied that route there were hundreds
of people who took the circuitous
and costly trip via Port Moody to
reach Victoria because they would
not take' the risk of crossing the
straits on the Rithet. The same
thing may be expected to occur now.
We understand that the change
will be made immediately, and that
this is the last trip of the Yose-
mite to Westminster for the present at least. Xt is a great misfortune
both for the O. P. N. Oo. and for
the Fraser " route that • more suitable steamer than the Rithet is not
available for the service.

DIRECTORS' ANNUAL  REPORT.
Gentlemen—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending 31st March, 1887,
we beg to state that it will be an utter
impossibility to run the hospital free of
debt on the grant just voted hy the government for the ensuing financial year.
The surgeon has heen attentive in his
duties anil reports a large increase iu the
number of patients admitted during the
year, shewing also that wo have received
patients from all parts of the province,
There are a number of incurables in
this hospital, some of whom were brought
from Victoria hospital years ago. The
■um of $1,000 a year has been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, the last
few years. The Board think, therefore,
that some of these incurables should he
shipped back to Victoria.
A great number of improvements have
been made during the year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-house built, the
two cesspools thoroughly cleaned; the
building being old, requires constant repairs, which entails considerable expend-
ware.
The hospital has been filled to its
utmost capacity during the whole year,
The Board desire to thank subscribers
for generouB Bubstriptions, lists of which
are annexed, and without which it would
hare been found Impossible to have kept
the institution free of debt; also the con-
cremations of Holy Trinity Church, St.
Andrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist and
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, and the following ladies and
gentlemen for old clothes, linen, books,
papers etc.:—Mesdames C. T. Woods, C.
K. Woods, Major, Lennic, H. Elliot, W.
J. Armstrong, W. B. Townsend, Douglas, Edmonds, J. W, Harvey, Baker, W.
H. Keary, D. Hennessey, Cuinmiugs, A,
M. Herring, Bronskill, Sisters St. Ann's
Convent, ladies W. C. T. U., Bachelors'
Ball Hatchery, Messrs. LB. Fisher, 'I. S,
Holt. R. I. Bentley, J. S. McDonnell.
The surgeon's report is appended hereto, and gives full details of the work
accomplished for the year.
The average cost per day for ench resident patient in the hospital, which includes the disbursements on out-door
patients, Is 07 cents.

SURGEON'S REPORT
For Year Ending 31st Maucu, 1887.
To the Members of the jtaartl nf Director*:
GEKTLEMEN.-I have the honor to
herewith present the report on this Hospital for the year eiuiing 31st March, 18*7:
Number of Indoor Patients 103

Although the number nf deaths Is large
the short number of days It, the Hospital
of a large proportion of them shows that
they came In in a hopeless condition.

The number of Incurables now in the
Hospital Is twelve [121. This large number requiring to be taken enro of from
year to year renders It Impossible to make
a number of desirable improvements in
the building, owing to the limited supply
of funds. I have introduced the table of
residences to show the people of Riitisli
Columbia that they alt ought to take on
Interest In helping on this Institution,
which Is Increasing in usefulness every
year, as may be.seen by comparing the
number of Indoor pntients of the previous
year —seventy-flvo (75)—with Uub year-
one hundred and three (to:)).
We still require a lot of draining to be
done about and from the building. The
floors and walls have bcon Improved and
the new wash-room Is a great addition to
the comfort of the place.
I have groat pleasure In thanking a
number of friends of the Hospital for presents of clothe*, old linen, pictures, books
and papers. Again I have to thunk the
steward, Mr. Charles Plghy, for his constant attention to the cleanliness of the
building and his kindness and attention
to the wants of the sick and his readiness
In carrying out all toy directions. Before
closing this report I must offer my sincere
thanks to the medical gentlemen whoso
kindly offered their assistance to myself
whenever required during the past year.
I am Yours Faithfully,

TREASURER'S REPORT.
In presenting the accounts for (he past
year, the Treasurer bora to cull nttcntlon
to the fact thnt the outlay has been rigidly
scrutinized, In which he has been ably
assisted by the Steward, Mr. Digby. There
seems little prospect of any reduction of
expenditure. You will notice thnt the
subscriptions have been liberal and have
been a great assistance in keeping the
Institution free of debt. It Is to be regretted that the Government have reduced
the grant to the Hospital from M/iOO to ?:(,-

executed as to compare.favorably with
the best papers on the continent. The
advls. will be compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar 1m
provements will be mode as to the letter-
prens. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while tl... Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
Improvements In tho artistic department.
The price of drip will hereafter bo|2a

T. R. PEAM80K. MI WIFE.
Ho* often her touch, soft and trembling,
Has cent a quick thrill to my heart I
How o! ton her brown eyes dissembling
Have caused me in anguish to st urt I
To forget her I've tried, but In vain;
tllnce 1 mot hor she's haunted my
brain;
And I scarce can believe,
Though the rumor's so rife,
That my last year's acquaintance
Isthlsveirawito.
I've disputed with rivals outnumbered
Tho honor of holding her fan;
Through the waltzes  I've aimlessly
lumbered
When ehedanoed with somoother man.
I've quarrelled with my Ink-blotted
leaf,
I've snarled that her notes were too
brief;
But how foolish and vain .
Seems that small, silly strife
When I think that she now
Bears tho titlo of "wife!"
I've given her baskets of flowers;
I've carried her books by the score;
Through mans- a twilight's gray hours
I've read her the po t's sweet lore.
But a trues to suoli senseless reviews;-
To what use do I sit here and muse?
She has taken the yell,
She is dead to that lite,
She's a maiden no more,
But a woman—a wife.
I'll never seek pleasure without her,
Earth's light would be dreary end
cold;
, Like a shadow I'll hover about her,
Then her form Jn my arms I'll enfold.
Though seeing hor close to my side,
No being shall threaten or chide.
For the woman I sing "
Is my treasure for life;
She's my sweetheart, my lOTer, i
My darling, my wife.

STOBY OF WILLIE ALLBRIOHT.
The Kidnapped Enfll*h Boy Tfho Vfas
K< ,eu.d 'Tram i» Showman by his Parents, In tli. St .to of Iowa,
The case of Willie Allbrlght, an English lad, was full of strange advent*.res.
He lived at SlwllloM with his parents
uv.il live years of ugo. His father was
iiiilloyed In a groat factory there, and
{us mother was a dressmaker for tho
irl -iiuurhood. They lived in acotlago
in im suburbs ol me town, nnd at tho
>u :e of four the boy was permitted to
about the neighborhood a good deal,
. t live, when no wits kidnapped, he
v.'ii sent to the stores to make puroha-
anu knew all the streets clear to
tin' !a«ory In whioh his father worked.
Ouo day in 1881, about two o'clock in
tliu afternoon, he was sent to a store
Unci blocks away after some buttons.
11 fore he reached it a strange man oo-
c stel bun and asked his name. Ho
lieu gavo Willie some sweetmeats and
s,;ecl him to go and look at a Punch
i id Judy show In the town, promising

Too boy eagortyeet off with him, and
oui laken to the railroad depot and
plueed on a train In charge of a nilddle-
u.l woman, who gave him more sweet-
ii uU and was very kindly spoken. She
inia the show liiul moved away and they
.tier it, and tliu novelty of the child's
position prevente.1 hhn feeling any anxiety.
when the detectives cams .to take the
ease up, as they did two days after the
boy's dlssppearanco, they got no due
whatever. Although lie had walked a
'mile or two, bund in hand with the abductor, along orowded streets, nobody
remembered seeing the pair.
They had gone openly to tho railroad
sli t on, but no one there had noticed
ilium. The guard on the train dimly re-
nieiiiberod a woman and child In a com-
pun meat, but could give no description.
As the Allbrlghts were poor and lowly
no great stir was created, and ns great
snort was mad. by the detootlves to re-
store the boy to his parents.
The boy was taken from Sheffield to
Liverpool, bring so well treated on the
way that ho hod no thought of his
loino.
At Liverpool he was told that his
name wu John Manton, and that the
woman was his mother. When he disputed the point he was soundly whipped.
His hair was out close, bis dress entirely
changed, and a liquid was rubbed on his
skin, which turned it dark, Except
ivhcn he asked to go home, or denied
that his name was John Manton, he was
dndiy treated, and after he had been
beatiin seven or.elght times he accepted
ilio new nam. and coned to refer to his
parents.
Young as he was this was a stroke ot
'Hoy on his part He realised that ks
lad iweibstolm from home, and h. kept
•epeatlngtohlmseltthathls true name
••as wilUe Allbrlght, and tost he lived
it Sheffield.
After a couple of weeks lessons In
umbling and tight-rope walking wen
rlvou to the boy. He was never per-
ultted to go out alone or to converse
vith strangers, and It soon cams
latural for him to coll the woman
Bother,
In the oourss ot aoouple of months
ho put Homed a dream to him and he
rould have forgotten all about It had he
tot kept repeating to himself;

H. wis In Liverpool six weeks
nfors he knew tho name of the city.
Wheu he had been taught how to
l.uoe, ting, tumble, and walk a tight
opo-a matter ot three months' tune—
0 was taken around the country with a
mall show, whloh the woman owned In
art. The novelty ot travel was so
gtvcjble that he - almost forgot his
ii nation, and was tot two or three years
,11110 conteut.
There was no one to teach him how to
cad or write, but he was quick-witted,
ml could reason beyond his years. Hs
ad hopes that tho show would some
ay reuch Sheffield, and he would then
Up out and run home, but the people
1 course carefully avoided the place.
Once, when thby were showing at
loiioastte, a tow miles .way, Willis
bserved a man whoso fuoo hod a famll-
ir look, gating at him in an earnest
lannor, and presently heard him say to
ir.cud:
" The laddie keeps me thinking of too
hlld who was stolen .way from neigh-
or Allbrlght, but of course It can't be
io one."
Tho boy was about to call out that
is name was WllUe Allbrlght when the
oman, who always kept an eagle eye
ii him, came closer and intimidated
im. The show than hurriedly' packed
p and left tho plane.
The boy now realised more fully than
fs».that his, right, nam* y»s Allbrlght,
id that he had been stolen from home,
it be also felt his helplessness.
He had been told that It he ever tried
i run away wild animals would pursue
md devour htm. and he was In mortal
error of a bulldog whloh followed the
how. Ho therefor, humbly obeyed all
rders and made no move to run
way. . ■: • , . .
Ho was about 8 years old when ho
hanged masters, being sold (or a good
puud pries to a man who oaUed himself
•tot. Williams. This man was a ven-
rllonuiit and iugglsr, and hs took the
boy to Australia with him and gavo hall
performances for about a year or bo.
They thou returned, and made tho toui
or Scotland and Ireland, and sailed foi
America,
Allbrlght was 11 years old when ho
landed in Now York. The Professor
then took tho namo of La Pierre, though
he was no l'renou man In look or speech,
and travelled for a year.
One day, us they ware filling a dabs
at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the boy was sent
to the post office with letters, and a
curious tiling happened, One of the
four toys who had witnessed the performance the night previous made up to
him In a friendly way and asked his
name. '
" Johnny Manton," was tho reply.
"Yes, but that's your stage name.
What Is the other?"
" Wllllo Allbrlght"
" That's funny. A- family named All-
bright live next door to us, They used
to live In England."
"Sodid I."
"Maybeyou aro rotated. I'm going
to tell 'cm about you."
Two hours later a man and his wife
called at the hotel and asked for tho
boy, and the mother had no sooner set
eyes on him than she hugged him to
her heart Tho father was longer making up his mind, but he soon came to
JS?!„ ™r'oiu that John Manton was
Willie Allbrlght and the boy who had
been stolen from him seven or eight
years before.

Everybody rides. Mo one thinks of
walking. Each family has Its carrlago
nnd saddle horse, and even the beggarj
go about the streets on horseback.
It Is a common thing to be stopped on
thus,root by a hi rseman and asked for
a "ncntavo," which Is worth two and a
bait cents of our money, Those Incidents are somewhat startling at first,
and suggest highway robbery, but the
appeal Is made In such a uiuublo, pitl.ul
tone that tho feeling of alarm soon vanishes,
"Forthe love of Jesus, Senor,glvo a
poor sick man a centavo. I've had no

Tho ladles ot Uruguay arc considered
to rank next to their sisters of Peru In

the atmosphoro which gives their complexion a purity and clearness that are
not elsewhere found.
But when they reach maturity, like all
Spanish ladies, they lose their grace and
symmetry of form and become very
stout. This Is undoubtedly owing In a
great degree to their lack of exercise,
for tliey never walk, but spend their entire lives in a carriage or rocking-chair.

A Dangerous Olrl.
In tho country, not more than 15 miles
from Modesto, resides a young lady
who has developed Into a perfect oleo-
trlo battery.
Tho first evidence to that effort that
tho young lady had, presented Itself to
her a few evenings ago. She was a' out
to retire, and extinguished fio light
In her room, and with a quick motion
rolled back the bed covering, when lo,
and behold I the bed Immediately was
turned Into a shoct of lire. The young
lady, much frightened, s rennetl
"Fire!" and at the earns Urns grabbed
the bed covering In hor arms,
When the other members Of the family arrived at the door of tlio ro.un they
found her standing In the middle of the
room In tho midst ot what seemed to
be a liame'ot lire, but no sooner
had tho bed clothes been taken
from hor arms than the Homos disappeared.
Experiments made by the young lady
sinco have proved that she lias become
possessed of a vast amount of electricity, which shows Itself at every opportunity.
Tho young lady Is not at all satisfied
With tlio phenomenon, as It requires the
greatest caution on her part to keep
iro.ii staruig up a small bonUra by the
slightest movement of her baads.—

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LXICITSDJ
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited," The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationer)' and
Printing Company, of New Westminster.
Victoria und Vancouver. Tho object of
the new company is to continue the publication-of the Hhitisii CoU'muias newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso imlivldual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of tho Mainland. There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
.to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered in the- public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, tlio book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. li.
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
in his own name and fur his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained In this city, and
the new company asks for public patronage on the ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long aa Its policy Is
enconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all ac-
counts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Security ottered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, butthe
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot bo misled as to tliefr contracts.
Its statements to tbo public can be readily understood, its cash statement snowing every Item or income and how expends position isasoertnlned annually from
a detailed valuation In which every item
of liability Is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies ore Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeltnble after two yearn'
existence.
Its profits nre distributed upon an equitable basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
tho uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Road to the Hot Spawns.—The
government have decided to construct
a first-class wagon road into the Harrison river hot springs from Aggaziz
station. Their prompt action is to be
commended, and proves that thoy are
fully alive to every means that will
bring wealth into the province. The
road once constructed, a large influx
of viiitojs to the springs will result,
for the present means of reaching the
springs are not of the best. The situation of the Harrison river hot springs
is immensely superior to that of the
Banff springs, and they, no doubt, will
soon become one of the most popular
resorts on the coast.—Colonist.

Tell me not in mournful numbers
-    That the city's full of gloom;
Fora man's a crank that slumbers
In these bustling days of boom.
Life is real, life is earnest,
And the grave Is not Its goal.
Every dollar that thou earnest
Helps to make the good town roil.
But enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
If you have no money—borrow,
And buy a corner lot to-day.
Uvea of great men all remind us
We can leave Immortal fame.
Let us leave the chumps behind us
And we'll get there Just the same.
In this world's broad Held of battle,
In the bivouac of life,
Let ns make the dry bones rattle,
Buy a corner for your wife.
Let ns then be up and doing,
With a heart for any late,
still achieving, still pursuing,
Booming early, booming late.

The Excursion. —Everything looks
favorably for the Y.M.C. A. excursion
to North Bend to-morrow. We arc
having the proverbial Queen's weather,
and the fare is within the reach of
most people, and the scenery along
the route is certainly worth the journey. A few days ago we stated that
dinner would be provided to excursionists nt the C.P.P.. dining room,
North Bend, at 50 ets. each. The
company has decided, however, that it
cannot undertake to furnish meals at
all, and it will be necessary, therefore,
for excursionists to provide their own
lunch. Train leaves the station here
at 8 o'clock in the morning, and it will
not wait for anybody.

Thomas Robinson, Famham Centre,
P. Q., writes: "I have been afflicted with
rheumatism for tho last ten years, and
have tried many remedies without any
relief. I got a bottle of Dr. Thomas'
Ecloctric Oil, and found it gave instant

Another Quartz Strike.—A letter received from Kettle river, states
that rich quartz has been discovered
at the forks of Dock creek in the
direction of what is known as Bald,,
mountain, The surface rock is stated
as being very rich, containing free
gold. The ledges are wide and Iho
appearance of the country indioates a
large quarts belt. The altitude at
which the quartz is found is about
3500 or 5000 feet above sea level.
The quarts is evidently n feeder of
Rock creek, in which stream desultory
mining has been carried on for years,
and where at one time there was a
great placer excitement. Several
locations have been made.

St. Mary's Hospital
New Westminster, B. C.
THE SISTERS OF CHA1UTY RE-
speotfully beg leave to announce to
the public of New Westminster and
vicinity that St. Mary's Hospital is now
open for the reception of patients. All
are invited to visit the institution aud
see for themselves that no expense has
been spared to secure, for those seeking,
relief from bodily Ills, the comfort una
tender cure their state requires. The
members of tho medical profession,
especially, are cordially invited to place
their patients in the hands of experienced
nurses who will carefully compound all
prescriptions and faithfully attend to the
wants of all those committed to their
care. For the benefit of the public,
travelling or othorwise, who, far from
and friends, are liable to be Btrioken by
sickness or injured by accidents, such as
occur almost dally in our midst, the
Sisters of St. Mary's Hospital have decided upon issuing tickets at the small
sum of $10.00 each, whioh will entitle the
holder to Hospital care and attendance
for one year from date of issue.
For further particulars address,
Sister John or Calvary,
__       Superioress.
The Hospital occupies a lot on Agnes
Street, easy of access from every point.
The building from the point of utility is
one of the most perfect ever constructed
and in an artistic sense of great architectural beauty. It is of frame, 51x81
feet square, with a stone basement, two
stories high and a mansard. The estimated cost of the structure is 820,000.
Upon either end of the building is a broad
verandah, from which a most enchanting
view of the Fraser river and the surrounding country may be obtained.
The whole is cupped with a lofty cupola,
adding much to tho architectural finish.
In the basement are tho boiler rooms, the
engineer's rooms and the store room.
Iu view of the fact that the entire building is heated with the new system of hot
water pipes, it will be seen that tho arrangement of the basement ns to the
boilers is a most important feature of the
establishment. Here are two large furnaces which may be tired alternately or
together for heating the water to be used.
Mosen. Gardner & Co., of Portland,
Oregon, have laid the pipes and built the
furnaces for tlio heating apparatus.
Every room in the hospital is reached
with the wall coils of the pipes, and the
main hall has two handsomely decorated
heaters. A uniform temperature mav
be had as high as IK)0 F. if desired.
Unliko the sttnm heaters, there is absolutely no danger from explosion or sudden changes in temperature. It is estimated that there are nearly 12,000 feet
of pipe used in the construction of the
heating apparatus in the hospital. In
addition to this method, openings and
flues are prepared for the use of stoves,
in tho event of any unforeseen accident
to the hot water works. Upon the first
floor aro arranged the kitchen, large
dining hall, reception room, drug room,
five private rooms for patients, a room
for those afflicted with contagious diseases aud entirely disconnected from the
balance of the floor, and two com-
inodiously furnished toilets for gentle*
and ladies, respectively. The kitchen
is a large room, 20x21 feet square, containing a great cooking range ten feet
long. To this latter is connected an im-
ineuso water boiler which supplies the
baths. Tho elevator, or dumb waiter,
which rises from the kitchen and extends to tho roof fill,, also, the purpose
of ventilator, for the cooking depart*
ment. On every floor above the kitchen
the dumb waiter passes through a pantry
properly supplied with appliances for
washing dishes and arranging the trays
upon which the meals aro sent to the
lmtionts upon that particular floor.
Upon all the floors the ssme excellent
sanitary system is carried out in regard
to tho two tiers of toilets. They are
placed one above tho other at each end
of the building and so arranged that they
are disconnected from the main structure
and aro furnished with the most complete
of modern improvements, The character
sewage pipes for the escape of gas is per*
feet. Another general feature whioh is
common to every floor in the building, is
the brood stairway, one at each end of
the building with easy landings. Still
another is the fire hydrants of two inches
diameter, so placed and furnished with
one hundred I ot of hose each, that any
room in the house may be deluged with
water on a minute's notice. Upon the
first floor is the grand dining room, 21x24
feet in size. On the second floor aro the
two bath aud toilet rooms, tlio operating
room, a "special cases" ward with ten
cots, a want .with eighteen cots, the
pantry and six private rooms. The third
iloor Is mado into a chapel, six private
rooms and one dormitory. The fourth
Hour is one large attic with u seven foot
coiling. Surmounting this is a cupola,
The whole building™ lighted with gas.
Tiie capacity of the hospital is for from
eighty to one hundred patients.
