Durlnff tho week Just closed the
writer had occasion to visit the J'ltlstoa
hospital, and the many striking mani
festations of man's generosity that he
beheld prove that the poor and the af
flicted la their hour of adversity we
not forgotten by the noble spirited men
ml women of this place. The monthly
reports published, which enable the
public to learn just what Is received
11 the way of dellcucles, etc., give but
faint Idea of Its substantial condition.
n the south ward ure thirteen beds, nil
of which have been endowed by socie
ties and residents of this place. Each
bed Is worth $50 and have been donated
by the following: No. 1, St. John's
lodgi?. Free and Accepted Masons. 233;
No. 2, W. G. Nugent post, 24D, Grand
Army of the Republic; No. 3, Gohouto
lodge, 314, Independent Order of Vdd
Fellows; No. 4, Wyoming; lodge, Knights
of Honor; No. C, Royal Arcanum, 134;
No. 6, Mrs. W. L. Watson ; No. 7, Catho
lic Mutual Benefit association, 48; No.
Blessed Virgin sodality, St. John's
(R. C.) church; No. 9, "Mary Bed;" No.
10, "John Brown Bed;" No. 11, Valley
lodge, A. Y. M., 499; No. 12; Luzerne
lodge, Independent Order of Odd Fel
ons, 721; No. 13, Archie F. DeWltt.
The "Mary Bed" was purchased by a
fund creatod by popular subscription
through the efforts of Editor Hart, of
the Gazette. It ln located on the east
side of the building and adjoins the
'John Brown Bed," which has been
provided In tho same manner. The
'Archie DeWltt Bed" was presented by
Archie DeWltt, sr., as a gift In honor
of his son's birthday, which occurred
Oct. 6. The several appliances, many of
them the origin of Superintendent Glle
son, tend greatly to facilitate the work
Incumbent upon the removal of patients
from the several wards to the operating
room. Particularly among them Is a
vehicle with a table body. It Is six feet
ong and two feet wide. The running
geur consists of two rubber tire wheels
ocated In the center, and are of bicycle
pattern. The vehicle Is of polished oak
and Is the same height as the beds. In
the removul of patients Its comfort and
utility can be readily understood. Si
impressed was Lr. Guthrie, one of the
staff of the Wllkes-Barre hospitul, with
the vehicle while on a recent visit, that
he expressed his Intention of having
two built for similar use In the hos
pital in that city. Another feature that
commands the admiration of tho visi
tor is the recent changes made In the
bath room and closet service. With
out exception In point of cleanliness
and elegance they stand unsurpassed
by any similar Institution. The floors
are of tile and the walls to a height of
nix feet are liulshed with a coating
similar to Celluloid. The bath Is of the
latest pattern, as are also the closets
and wash stands. Two radiators furn
ish steam heat to each eomuurtmnet.
Both rooms are convenient to each of
the -wards. .While all these comforts
are greatly appreciated, the necessity
of financial aid and necessaries such as
are needed In Institutions of this kind
must not for a moment be lost sight of.
The winter Is close at hand and a dona
tion of apples, potatoes, turnips, coal,
etc., be the quantity treat or small.
would no doubt be gratefully accepted.
While much has been said In praise of
the generosity of the friends of the hos
pital, but nevertheless deserved, what
the physicians who all along have done
and who continue to .give their time and
attention to alleviating the suffering,
their services, while overlooked, have
not been forgotten. At an early day
the writer will endeavor to eonvev as
minutely as possible some Idea of what
these gentlemen have done without re
ward other than the acknowledgment
of a grateful community.
Joe Hltchner, of "Tld Bit" fame, Is

The Worst Case the Doc
tors Ever Saw
Hood's Sarsaparilla Perfectly Cured
"C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass.:
"Dear Sirs: I wish to testify to the great
value of Hood's Sarsaparilla. For some time I
bad been troubled with scrofula, which early
last winter assumed a very bad form.
Sores Appeared on My Face
and hands and gradually increased in number
until they reached to my shoulder. The doctors
said It was the worst case of scrofula they ever
saw nnd also went so far as to say It was In
curable. I tried ointments uud other remedies
but to no avail. A friend recommended Hood's
Sarsaparilla, and although I was completely ills
couraged, a last chance I resolved to give It a
trial. AitertaKlngoiie bottle I noticed the sores
hod commenced to heal. Alter the sixth bottle
They Were All Healed.
I continued to take It, however, until I had used
nine bottles, and now I am perfectly well."
