Though there are curtains and other hangings not yet in place, the equipment of the several apartment* Is practically completed, and by Tuesday, the date of formal opening, ai- will be in readiness. The Impression made by the airy, comfortable wards and rooms is best, summarized by quoting the words ot' u visitor, "It is bad to be sick, but if It has to come, this looks like a mighty comfortable place to go through the ordeal." On entering the reception hall, the men's ward Is to tha left with a second ward in the rear. Between the two Is the nurses instruction and physician's consultation room. Across the hall in the rear Is the women's ward, and the other apartments on the lower floor are fitted up as private rooms. On the upper floor, and facing the stair landing is the operating room, thoroughly fitted up with the best equipment known to science. A smaller room adjoins, and In the rear of this is a second small room with water heaters and antiseptic tanks. On this floor also are six private rooms, j all bandsomely furnished, and giving the hospital a capacity of eight sucu rooms in all. Addition Contemplated. But even now it Is foreseen that the building, commodious as it is, will not prove adequate to the demands upon it, and plans have been called for for the construction of a wing extending north from the main building for a distance of 200 feet, which extension will reach the wall of the smaller structure, which is to be the home of the Sisters and other attendants. It Is expected that the work of construction on this addition will be under way within a period of six months. The Sisters' Residence.
