Some English Hospitals


Barnwood.—We are most glad to read that out of the favourable surplus of income no less a sum than 4671 has been appropriated to increasing the Pension Fund, which now stands at the value of 17,000. Nothing can react more strongly on the care of the patients and the general progress of the institution than such a pledge to the future. The rating authorities have suddenly raised the ratable value of the hospital from 807 to 2030. Remonstrance succeeded in reducing the latter sum to 1800, with which, of course, the Committee are not satisfied, and they will appeal again. The extra amount of rates thus imposed would probably suffice to keep two patients. Dr. Soutar mentions a case which recovered after five years' illness. No improvement was seen till many stumps had been extracted and replaced by artificial teeth. After that she never looked back.
