The police authorities -were notified yes

may not be properly directed in the first place
or stamped by the first alleged medical man

thought, to Lave a hospital for the cases

The fact that State appropriations are made
for the benefit of some of these Institutions.

without such aid was freely spoken of, and
Mercy Hospital was praised both in the police

opened was, "What shall be done with the
pauper sick?" They have no friends, or if they
have are too poor to render aid to those in dis-.-tress,
and the city as well as the county officials
are anxious to have a hospital where emer

ANOTHER LANDMARK GOING.

A Railroad Train Equipped With the Hew
Device for Announcing; Stations.
Attention has previously been called in
these columns to the mechanical device ior
plainly announcing "next station" on rail-
road trains. These ingenious machines are
made by the American manufacturing Com
pany, 313 Wood street, and were first ex
hibited at the Exposition in this city last
October. The excellence of the apparatus
at once recommended it to public favor, its
entire superiority to the brakeman's mum
bling announcement being very evident.
The machine is constructed so that as soon
as the passenger train leaves a station a
clear bell is rung, drawing the passengers
attention to a handsome sign reading "If ext
station ." The Pennsylvania Com
pany has equipped a car on the Beaver
Falls accommodation with tbese ''indica
tors" which are said to give entfre satisfac
tion to the passengers. If it is decided to
equip the whole train the "indicators" will
be operated by compressed air, and thus the
names of next stations be simultaneously
displayed in every car on the train. For
the sake of ease of mind of travelers it is to
be hoped that all trains will soon be pro
vided with this excellent device.

To the Editor of The Dispatch:
Deae Sis X wish to call your attention,
also the public's, to the following matter of
"vital interest to this community. At each
new achievement of success the world
doubts and questions nntil overwhelming
evidence compels it to believe. The med
ical fraternity in this city during the past
few weeks have been thrown into no little
excitement over a claim set forth by Dr.
Sturgeon that it is In his power to check the
progress of and cure that dreaded disease, ty
phoid lever, a feat heretofore unheard of in
the history of medical science. A son of
Mr. J. M. Force, of No. 185 Jackson street,
Allegheny, was -violently taken with the
disease. Dr. H was called in to see
the boy and pronounced the case typhoid
fever; he attended the patient about two
days, with no improvement on the part of
the sufferer. Mr. Force had in some way
heard of the successful cures effected by Dr.
Sturgeon and summoned him. The doctor
diagnosed the case as Dr. H had
done. Both of them pronounced it typhoid
fever. Dr. Sturgeon said he could cure the
boy in five days, and inside of 60 hours the
fever had subsided. In an incredible short
time young Force was restored to health.
The writer called on Dr. H this
morning, and, in conversation, the doctor
stated that he would give. $1,000 in cash for
a copy of the formula, proving conclusively
his appreciation of the wonderful discovery.

You never saw an old fellow look so utter
ly dumfonhded and mortified as the worthv
fur-robed Santa Glaus did this morning,
when he came jingling oyer the Alleghen
nies and found a rival Santa running the
Christmas business1 under his very "nose.
Blue indeed did that nose turn, and fiercely
did the jolly Saint's eyes flash Tfhen the
news cameribging over.hill and' dale, that
Kaufmanns, ox Pittsburg, without exactly
donning furs and garlanding themselves
about, with holly leaves, bad gone forth
through this city, as a, second Saint .Nich
olas, and beaten the old-established Saint
all to fits. When the bells of "merry Christ
mastide" chimed cheerfully over thebouse
tops, many a child's eyelids opened to the
sunshine, all ablaze with bright expectancy,
and many a lisping tongue cried, "Has
Kaufmann been here?"
For manv years J.- Kautmann & Brothers
have brought joy to thousands of infant
hearts, by their generous distribution of
dainty Christmas gifts. Their lore for the
little "ones seems to' "be- limitless. It never
slackens and never abates in the least de
gree. Everv Sunday school child in Pitts
burg and Allegheny gets this Christmas a
present from Kaufman b, and no one is
neglected in the distribution. Just a month
since J. Kaufmann & Brothers started in
on the great work, they have brought to so
successful and so agreeable a conclusion,
books were the presents decided upon for
this Yuletide, and certainly the Kaufmanns
displayed much good, sense in making the
Selection. No better present could be im
agined.for school children than tbese de
lightful 'books. They last longer than other
gifts, and are of real value besides. Agents
of the Messrs. Kaufmann went to the book
marts of all the great American cities, buy
ing all the picture books they thought suit
able for their young friends by the banks of
Some two weeks ago the books began to
come in hundreds, and the big Kantmann
store on Filth avenue and Smithfield street
was soon filled to overflowing. Additional
storage room had to be obtained, and the
work of book buying went on bravely.
When the books were stored awar requests
were sent out to the superintendents of the
Sunday schools in Pittsburg and Allegheny
and to all the .towns in the vicinity for the
names and number of pupils enrolled. Then
began the distribution, a dozen men were .
kent bnsv for a week wramiincr ud and ex
pressing the books to their destination, until
to-day all the names that have been received
have been, provided with a youthful and
beautiful book, one that is replete with
magnificent illustrations nnd stones, such
as will delight children's hearts.
So quiet has this book distribution been
conducted that few people outside of the
ministers and superintendents of the
churches and schools know anything of the
magnitude of such an undertaking. Over
60,000 volumes will' be given away al
together. The distribution is confined to
children of no particular denomination, but'
is common to all. The pastor of one of the
leading Fifth ayenue churches yesterday
complimented the Messrs. Kaufmann very
highly indeed on .their benevolence, and
their evident desire, that all young people
should be happy in the season oi happiness.
This reverend gentleman also gave some
statistics bearing on the mammoth presenta
tion. "The smallest number of books, 25," he
said, "go to the children of the Twenty
second Street Presbyterian mission school,
and the largest number to the Webster
Street (Cathedral) Convent, which requires
1,200 to go around. The majority of the
schools asked forfrom 300 to 500 each, and
there were books in plenty, and some left
over. Never before has any individual or
single firm expended such a vast sum of
monev tor the pleasure of the little ones as
have Kaufmann Bros. Expense apparently
had not been taken into consideration. In
all 60.000books were distributed at a cost of
'thousands of dollars, lint the amount, vast ar
men when they Considered and compared . it
with the happiness and the pleasure the
children experience in receiving the gift
Never before have so manv little hearts been
gladdened, and. I am sure' the children will
never forget the men whose sole object in
displaying such unprecedented generosity, is
to make the little "tots" happy, at least one
day in the year. Too much praise cannot
be bestowed upon such liberality, and the
world would be far better off if we had more
it is a time-honored saying that " 'Tis
better .to give than to receive," and the
spirit which prompted this distribution gives
evidence of the kindly feejing ot "Peace on
earth and good will" to ward men" that Kauf
mandV bear to the rich and poor alike of
the people in this vicinity. There is 'no
motive of self-gain in their distribution, and
if it was not for the out-spoken joy of the
children in telling of their pretty books the
public would never know of the gener
osity that has'been manifested by these peo
ple. The books were all bought and sent
out to the different churches before even an
inkling had been given out as to what
was going on in their emporium. Kauf
manns' secret has leaked ont; every boy and
girl one meets is talking about the nice' book
they are going to get on Christmas. Letters
of thanks are pouring in upon them from
every quarter, and if the blessings of thous
ands of men, women and children count for
aught surely Kaufmanns must be
fully repaid for the outlay of money,
large as it may have been, when it
brings so much happiness. The distribution
of books among the children is certainly an
achievement worthy of imitation by others,
and it is to be hoped that, prompted by the
good that has been accomplished, others
will follow in the footsteps of such generons
men. What more worthy object can money
be placed to than of giving pleasure to
others by the expenditure of a sum, large
though it may seem to some, is but a drop
in the bncket compared to the fortune that
l has been amassed by honesty and integrity?
.Lb was iuiuo53iuie iu uuiaiu a mil ana coiu-
plete list of all the chnrches, mission schools
and convents the Kaufmann Brothers sup
plied with Christmas books, as the firm was
opposed to making any public display of the
distribution through the columns of the news
papers. They did not propose to make cap
ital ont of charity, bnt from the ministers
and superintendents it was learned that at
least the following places had been supplied
with books for the little ones that were en
