HOW IT UREW. I -1 During the Summer of 1889 the physicians of the Borough of Norwalk and the City of South Norwalk, and the druggists of the Town of Norwalk competed in a base ball match and the amount of money, $10.85, raised by this field sport was deposited in the South Norwalk Savings Bank, in the name of the Norwalk Hospital Society, the Mayor of the City of South Norwalk and the Warden of the Borough of Norwalk, trustees. This amount, with its accumulations, is still in the bank to the credit of the Norwalk Hospital, and so far as we are able to learn this is the first financial effort for the benefit of the Hospital. The first movement, which had for its object the establishment of a hospital in the town of Norwalk, started among the ladies of the Hat Trimmers Association of South Norwalk, which matter they presented to the members of that Association at a regular meeting. "The suggestion met with the hearty approval of all present and a committee was appointed to consider the best means to interest the public and raise a fund for that purpose. After a consultation the committee, realizing something of the magnitude of the work they had undertaken, decided to invite the co-operatiou of the male members of the hatting industry, and accordingly sent invitations to the foreman and one journeyman from each department of each shop in town to meet with them in the trimming room of the Volk Hat Company's shop. There was quite a hearty response on the part of the men, and an organization was effected with Mr. John W« Mains, Chairman; Miss Fannie Rich. Secretary: Mr. Chas. B. Stevens, Treasurer. Plans were discussed, but nothing decided upon. From this time (early in June) regular weekly meetings were held in the parlors of the Old Well Hook and Ladder Co., which that Company kindly allowed the committee to use free of charge! At a subsequent meeting it was decided to hold a bazaar to last one week, beginning on the last Monday in October, 1891." "Early in September a public meeting was held to feel the pulse of the people, of which John H. Light was Chairman. The attendance at this meeting was such as encouraged the committee to go forward with the work. After this meeting the interest in the work began to increase and according to the original plan a bazaar was held. The ladies of the Hat Trimmer's Association were assisted by the schools of the town and the ladies of Grace Church of Norwalk. The proceeds of this fair were about $2890."" As early as June, 1891, we find by the records of the Baptist Church of South Norwalk that a committee of ladies was appointed to solicit funds to aid the Hospital project. The amount of such subscriptions, together with the interest accumulated as reported to the Hospital Association on Jan. 16th, 1893, amounted to $130.22. During the Fall of 1892 a permanent organization was effected known as the "Norwalk Hospital Association" and articles of Association were filed with the Secretary of State and the Town Clerk. The Board of Trustees were elected, an Executive Committee appointed and the work of the organization actually begun. The first annual meeting of the Corporators of the Norwalk Hospital Asso-f iation was held in the office of John I. Light, Esq., South Norwalk, Tuesday evening, Nov. 23d, 1892. About thirty gentlemen were present and articles of incorporation were read and adopted. iff Officers of the Association were elected as follows: Hoa. John H. Ferris, president. Robert Van Buren, vice president. $.'•3. Arthur Pinneo, secretary. Chas. B. Stevens, treasurer. Wm. H. Smith, J. G. Gregory, M. D., S. W. Velsor, John W. Mains, Wm. F. Bishop, • John H. Ferris, Robert Van Buren, Wm. M. Craw, Thos. I. Raymond, Jos. L. O'Brien, Charles B Sf.even9, J. A; Pinneo, were elected Directors. •••I'- On Nov. 22d, 1892, the first meeting of the Board of Directors was held at the office of Mr. Light in South Norwalk, all the members being present. A committee to draft by-laws was ap-ointed as follows: -.fit* S. W. Velsor, T. I. Raymond, J. G» Gregory, M. D., whose report was adopted by the Association. J ohn H. Light was appointed counsel. Subsequently an Executive Committee, consisting of Dr. J. G. Gregory, T. I. Raymond and Rev. S. H. Watkins, was appointed. The first meeting of the Executive Committee was held on Dec. 29th, 1892, and their first report, which was issued Dec. 13th, 1893, states the following: "The Board of Directors has the, honor to present herewith to the Norwalk Hospital Association, its first annual report, as prepared by the Executive Committee. This has been a year of beginnings. As soon as the funds in hand warranted the action, a committee was appointed to select a site for the future Hospital buildings. It was no easy task; many interests had to be consulted and many locations considered. The property had to be central, healthful and convenient. Few such lots of sufficient size were available. It was finally decided to purchase a portion of the Sammis estate on the east line of the Turnpike, giving a frontage of about 250 feet, and a depth of about 250. The sum paid was Four Thousand Dollars, (4000.) We believe that the site is most desirable, and we are convinced that we have a valuable property for hospital purposes. The next step was to secure temporary quarters and begin our work. Again we met with difficulties. A number of houses that were inspected could not be rented, and several buildings, which were offered, were not considered suitable. It was not until June that the present arrangement was made with Mr. G. W. Merritt, whereby we have the use of the second and part of the third floors (eight rooms in all.) in his house, No. 24 Leonard Street, at the annual rental of One Hundred Fifty Dollars ($150.) Through generous gifts the rooms were furnished and ready for occupancy on July 21st,'1893.: During the first nineteen week?, to the time of the annual report, there were thirty one (31) patients in the Hospital. During the year of 1893 a special appeal was made to the churches of the town of Norwalk to establish a Hospital Sunday, at which time collections should be'made for the benefit of the Association. Four churches responded and since that time the interest has increased, until now nearly every church in the town makes annual contribution. During this year the need of an ambulance, for the Hospital purposes, was often demonstrated and a committee was appointed to raise funds. This effort resulted in the building and equipping of a first class ambulance, which has been in constant use from that time until the present and is doing excellent service. We notice that in the Executive Committee's report for 1895 that the building fund has been increased by nearly $2000, by the splendid work of the Hat Trimmers Association and their helpers in the "fair." These influences developed a particular interest toward the erection of a new Hospital building and after careful study and consideration on the part of the Board and Executive Committee it was decided to obtain plans from architects. The firm selected was Rand & Taylor, Kendall & Stovens of Boston, Mass. After studying the problem for some weeks they submitted a set of drawings which called for an expenditure of about $25,000. This amount was Considered, by the Board, impracticable and further action was deferred. During the year of 1896 it was considered unwise to build a Hospital as planned on the Connecticut Turnpike, therefore, in the early summer the place known as the Hammersley property on East Avenue, was purchased for $5 000. It was thought this building could be remodelled and used successfully for Hospital purposes. Early in the year it became evident that the Hammersley place would not be available for onr future needs, and after careful consideration it was decided to relinquish it and look elsewhere. As a consequence, its sale was negotiated upon very favorable terms and with no loss to the Hospital, by our president, who was also instrumental in obtaining ^ large additional gift for hospital needs. A committee was then appointed, to whom was referred the question of a hospital site; _ To this work they gave much time, thought and labor, and finally, after deliberate and mature consideration, reported back to the Board of Direc tors, recommending the original site upon the Connecticut Turnpike, as the most desirable, as to location, conveni ence, surroundings and sanitation. This report of the Committee was adopted, and the hospital location definitely settled. It was also deemed advisable to obtain the balance of the lots on the Sammis property adjoining, in order to anticipate a future growth and to make the hospital gTounds more available. Steps were taken to this end and these additional luts have been purchased. We now own a plot of land extending from the Connecticut Turnpike to Valley Place containing nearly three acres, within easy access from all parts of our town and it may be approached from the Connecticut Turnpike, Valley Place, Cedar Street and Seymour Place. The Building Committee consists of John H. Ferris, Robert Van Buren, E. A. Woodward, W. F. Bishop and William H. Smith. By legislative act, approved April 29th, 1897, a State appropriation for maintenance fund of $2,500, per year for two years, wag secured through the earnest efforts of our senator and representatives in the State legislature. This amount, with the church collections, members subscriptions and gifts, furnish us with funds necessary to carry forward the work successfully. In April, 1897, Mrs. Merritt, who had been matron of the hospital from the commencement, resigned and new arrangements became necessary. The Executive Committee assumed the rental of the entire house and engaged Mrs. Lane to undertake the duties of housekeeper and board nurses and inmates, and take charge of the laundry. This plan has worked very successfully without increased cost to the management. Too much praise cannot be accorded to the visiting committee, medical board and the many others who by their efforts have made the carrying forward of the Hospital work a possibility. While the mo3t careful and earnest efforts have baen put forth to take the. best care of those who have been committed to our care since the temporary hospital was ready for occupancy, we have been looking forward, with great interest, to the time when we should have a permanent home, where we could care for all of those who might need hospital attention. While during the years past mroh interest has been manifested in this movement no definite action was taken until December 13th, 1897. when a committee of ladies and gentlemen was appointed from Norwalk, South Norwalk and East Norwalk. to be known as a Special Finance Committee to increase the building fund. We hops, by a very hearty and generous response from our citizens, we may be immediately supplied with funds to build and equip a hospital building, per plans and specifications by H. G. Lamson of Bridgeport, Conn., approved and adopted by the Board of Directors at their meeting held March 14th, 1898. We herewith give a form of a bequest that may be followed: "I give and bequeath to the Norwalk Hospital Association, in the town of Norwalk, Connecticut, the sum of Dollars, to be paid by my executors, out of my real or personal estate, as soon as the settlement of my affairs will permit, to the treasurer of said Association for the time being, in trust, to be applied by the directors thereof to the humane purposes of the Jlorwalk Hospital." We also append form of application for the admission of patients: 1. Applications for the admission of patients should be accompanied by a certificate from some respectable physician, stating the nature and probable duration of the disease, and should be made to the Executive Committee or to any member of the same. 2. The ordinary charge per week is $7.00 which includes medical and surgical attendance, together witji medi-cine} nursing and washing. 3. Persons who cannot pay for their tre itment are admitted on an oru<_r f»o a the town authorities. 4. Persons carried directly to the Hospital from the place pf an accident are admitted immediately. 5. A written history of the case should be sent with the patient. 6. Insane persons and those suffering from contagious diseases are not admitted. » Financing For The Hos= pital. WHO PAYS FOR IT BY JOHN H. FERRIS, PRESIDENT. It goes without saying, that the most essential part of the carrying on of any philanthropie enterprise is the department of finance. This is particularly the fact in the case of hospitals in general, and to this rule our own hospital is no exception. While in maty neighboring towns such institutions have been generously endowed by larfe-bearted men and wt men, we have not, as yet, been so fortunate. Therefore, we have had to depend for a large part of our income upon comparatively small individual donations, subscriptions to life and annual memberships, and upon fairs and entertainments of various kinds, which have been so kindly conducted by friends of the cause, and so generously patronized by the public irrespective of creed or position. 'For the past few years, however, we have been fortunate in securing from the State an annual appropriation of $2,500. It has been the aim of the board of management to make all expenditures in a prudent and economical manner, and the result, I think, reflects great credit upon the Executive Committee. The work that has been done and the results accomplished in our present limited quarters in the past four years have shown how much more can be better accomplished when we have our new hospital building, as now seems probable. We have now on hand, available for building purposes about $8,000. Now if this amount shall be sufficiently added to and increased by the generous people of our town, as I believe it will be, it is our purpose to erect® building that will be, architecturally, a credit to the Norwalks, and, what is still better, one which will enable us to do more efficient work for the relief of human suffering. There can be no cause which should appeal to eyery one of us more strongly than this. It is estimated thai a building such as we have planned can be erected for about $16,000 exclusive of the furnishing. From this deduct the $8,000 we have and the apparent deficiency is $8,000 the amount that will probably be needed to place this work in good financial condition. Now the question which you, the good people of Norwalk, are called upon to answer is, can we depend upoi&jou to,contribute this amount and thereby assure the erection and completion of this noble monument to the public spirit and philanthropy of our Town? We have undertaken and helped forward the work thus far, and have planned this new refuge for the sick and disabled, in the faith that the warm hearts and open hands of our people will carry the project to a successful completion. JOHN- H. FERRIS. The Medical Staff. In the limited space necessarily at command, it is difficult even to do justice to sucn a picture as the words •'Medical Staff" immediately present to the imagination. One must feel keenly one's inability to tell a thous • andth part of the story of generous self-sacrifice, of simple and unpretending service and the consecrated lives of the healers of the people. Literature is rich in allusion and in story upon this theme. The Bible with its incomparable phrasing has given us the words "beloved physician," and its lovely presentment of Christ binding up the wounds of body and mind. "Rab and His Friends" with its exquisite drawing of the great hearted doctor, comes instantly to mind, and what members of the profession have simply and unconsciously revealed themselves of their daily lives in such books as Dr. Warren's classic "Diary of a Physician" and Dr. Sim's "Story of my Life" is the best proof of their devotion. A most remarkable outline of the devoted life of a doctor is given in the sketches in Ian Maclaren's books. Dr. Watson says in one of his lectures that he answers the oft-repeated question as to whether there really is any such man as the beloved "Weelum Maclure" by saying that he has known four just such gentle doctors, any- one of whom would be astonished to recognize his virtues under the vivifying touch of the writer, aud adds that he's sure he has pictured them correctly as he has a pile of letters a foot high asking if he did not draw Maclure directly from such and such a doctor, said doctors living in towns all over the United Kingdom and the States. And who doubts that the picture of "Weelum Maclure" is as good as any sermon ever preached? But even the warmest appreciative tribute of an impersonal character does not always bring mat* ters home like a hard fact. Let us see what the Medical Staff of the Norwalk Hospital do and what they give for its maintennance. There are eight ph^J sicians on the staff each of whom serve* two months during the year, first as regular phvsician in charge, second as alternate. " The duty of the doctor in charge is to visit the hospital every day, and when there are severe cases, this is often increased to several calls a day. He holds himself in readiness to answer a summons at any hour of day and night, and there have been many night calls. The alternate is called when the regular physician cannot be reached in an emergency case, and owing to the nature of many of the cases, there are frequently several members of the staff needed. We all know that the services of a doctor are the last which can be reckoned in mere money, but let us look at this matter from a business point of view. Let us say there are but two-cases in the hospital, the minimum number, and that the physician makes his regular visit but once a day, charging the minimum price for his visit, one dollar for each patient, and we have in actual money a gift of from $60.00 to $120.00 a year, and as a matter of fact, this is a very low estimate as there are many more visits. Suppose every inhabitant of our town should contribute in such proportion as this to the hospital. Suppose any merchant in town should supply everything needed at the hospital in his line freely as a gift. If the hospital is served at a discount by a merchant it is considered a generous thing. The work of such a hospital as ours is not the daily routine of chronic cases. It is most often called upon for emergency service, and then the patient doctor, aroused in the dead of night must hurry often from a longdistance. And who can tell the strain of such cases upon the doctor and the nurses, the sharp immediate demand of experience, self-control, nerve. There are many instances where the immediate help of the trained nurse has prevented the untimely snuffing out of the candle of life. The doctors often place a patient in the hospital (who would be a source of income, if left in his home,) because of the doctor's intimate knowledge and practical experience as to the value of treatment under the trained nurse, the right hand of the modern doctor. Upon this great matter, the help of the trained nurse, it is difficult to hold one's pen, and nothing but the fear of the blue pencil in the hands of the stern editor restrains one. But after all, no one can do adequate justice to the story of the doctor and the nurse, and it is some consolation that it is not greatly needed. Their history is written in deeds, not words, and in the hearts of the people, and has not the testimony of many caused the words "grateful patient" to become a stock phrase in profession? It is impossible for one to estimate for another the illumination proceeding from personal experience, or close personal observation, and he is an unusual person who has not felt keenly at some time, the biting fear of disease or death for himself or for some dearly loved one. Who has not in such a moment drunk deeply of the black waters, and found his earthly support in the grave and kindly face of the family physician? DOTHA STONE PINNEO. The Board of Lady Vis» itors. The Directors of the Norwalk Hospital Association soon realized that it is "not good for man to be alone," especially in charitable and philanthropic work. Accordingly, they invited one woman from each church in the town and from the Hat Trimmers Union to take upon themselves the duty of "visiting the hospital regularly, of inquiring into the economical and moral concerns of the hospital, designating abuses and suggesting im-provments," Mrs. E. J. Hill was elected chairman and Mrs. James L. Stevens secretary. A plan was arranged by which each member of the Board should visit the hospital for two successive months; two are on duty at the same time, but only one term expires at the end of each month. This plan has worked very well and given regular attendance at the Hospital. From time to time new members have been appointed, as for instance, when St. Joseph's Parish was set apart, Miss Cavanagh remained on the Board, representing St. Joseph's and Mrs. Tracey was appointed to represent St. Mary's, but the same system has been carried out; some months the hospital having three visitors instead of two. The Board of Visitors for 1898 is as follows: Chairman, Mrs. Isaac S. Jennings, Trinity church, S. N.: Secretary, Mrs. Ira Cole, Cong, church, N.; Mrs. B. M. Andrews, Meth. church, S. N.: Mrs. C. W. Bell, Meth church, Rowayton.;Miss Maggie Cavanagh, St. Joseph's church, S. N.: Mrs. John H. Ferris, Cong, church, S. N.; Miss Julita Hatch. Mrs. J as. L. Stevens, St. Paul's church, N.; Mrs. John Jarvis, Baptist church, N.; Mrs. C. W. Judd, Hat Trimmers Union: Mrs. Oscar S. Partrick. Advent Christian Ch., E. N.; Mrs. Francis O. Seymour, Meth. church, E. N.; Mrs. II. L. Sheffield, Baptist church, S. N.; Mrs. W. J. Tracey, St. Mary's church, N ; Mrs. C. F. Tristram, Meth. church, N.: Mrs. R. Van Buren, Grace church, N. The original Board when organized decided to hold meetingr- on the first Monday of every month for the purpose of keeping up the interest in the work and to devise ways and means of filling the needs which should then be reported. At first the meetings were held in the parlor of the matron, Mrs. Merritt, but it was felt that they must be a serious inconvenience to her, with her limited accomodations, and since the organization of the Central Club, in its present quarters, the meetings have been held in the Club House. To show the interest felt in the work it can be said that in the five years since the organization of this Board but three meetings have lacked a quorum, and quite frequently every member has been present. Sometimes the needs of the hospital have been supplied from the resources of the Ladies Society or Guild of the Church to which the visitor of that month belonged; sometimes the members have individually contributed for the purpose. A number of entertainments have been given under the auspices of the Board, netting considerable sums of money, which have in most cases gone to increase the Building Fund,—for truth t© tell, it is the Building Fund which lies nearest the hearts of these earnest workers. Many, many times the report has been, "I have visited the hospital regularly, taken fruit and flowers, and nothing is needed but more room." We who can giye up a whole floor, or at least one room to a sick person, can little realize what it means to put seven or eight patients in two connecting rooms,—each no larger than an ordinary bed-room. There are so few people in the Norwalks who know just where the hospital is situated, to say, nothing of its accomodations, that it is ^ like talking to stone walls for any com- ' prehension of its needs. There hase been times when every bed has i>een occupied, and once, at least, the head • nurse gave up her tiny room for the use of a patient. Again, there have ; been a few days at a time when there : were no patients and the nurses have had time for a little rest and to .set £he place in order for the new arra-®als. ' which were sure to come. The visitors have many times heard the wish : expressed for a private ward where a, patient could receive attendance with some degree of seclusion. We do need a new hospital, not a costly and imposiug building, with resident staff and fully equipped for a large number of patients, for this • would be a constant expense and tax upon the community. What we need is a building more roomy and more healthfully located than the present building, and if every one who reads these lines would take the trouble to ascertain the true state of affairs, we should undoubtedly rejoice in the • possession of such a building before the close of the year. Mrs. Isaac S. Jennings. Christian Beneficence. THE SERVICE OF OUR CLERGY. At last, the cherished dream of our Norwalk philanthropists and her public spirited, christian men and women is to be realized. We are to have a Hospital! That is, a building and regime worthy the name. What cause for gratitude and thanksgiving! Gratitude to those earnest men, who in the name of suffering humanity have .given generously of their time and substance to make what was once a beloved prospect now a living reality ! Thanksgiving to God for His gracious and ready help in furthering the efforts of these.men, and in blessing their attempts in b'ehalf of this noble enterprise. It seems an unaccountable thing that our town should have been so long without a hospital. A visit to the pro-hospital, with its meagre dimensions, might long ago have furnished ample argument for that which is only novv to be realized. It has been urged by "the sons of indifference" that there is not disease or suffering enough in Norwalk to warrant so "pretentious'' a building as that about to be erected. In reply, the building is not to be a "pretentious" one: but plainly fitted to the needs of our community; the greatest economy and care having been exercised to make it, so. As to its necessity among us, the writer can testify to three cases within the past few months that have gone to the ISew York Hospitals at considerable expense because the pro-hospital could not accommodate them. On several occasions the pro hospital has been so full that many deserying applicants have been turned away te seek treatment in hospitals in other parts of our state. Thank God, it is not to be so much longer! A large, modest and perfect building, constructed upon well proven sanitary principles, upon a healthful site, with a corps of able nurses and physieians, is to minister to the needs of our town. An arrangement will be made whereby our local clergy also may minister to the spiritual needs of the institution, by regularly appointed services and special visitations. There will be no resident chaplain, for the hospital is non-parochial. Christian ministers of all denominations will officiate there, thus making it the possession of all churches. A few thousand dollars are necessary to the completion of this great enterprise. I cannot, in the face of all that has been done, believe that God will permit this need longer to be felt. I cannot believe that those of us who truly love their fellow-men will stand by and see this Christ-like enterprise forced to stand still. In the name of Jesus Christ, and his suffering ones, christian men and women of the Norwalks, open wide your purse-strings! Give to our noble undertaking, even at the cost of sacrifice! Harden not your hearts against that, which shall, in our own community, doits part in the great cause of humanity, suffering, and need! It is the voice of Christ that speaks to you inthe needs of our Hospital. What will you do for- it. and for him ? J. McClure Bellows. Grace Church Rectory. Norwalk. Hospital, Latin "hospitalia," apartments for guests, an institution for the reception and relief of the sick or infirm. Such in brief is the definition or signification of the word itself, with others of similar term. The earliest known hospital, according to authors, for the sick, was founded in the latter part of the 4th century at Caesarea; St. Chrysostotn built one at his own expense in Constantinople: and Fabiola, the friend of St. Jerome, founded one at Rome. The Hotel- Dieu in Paris, founded in the 7th century, has long been the largest and finest hospital in the world. It was rebuilt in the 12th century, and has been extended from time to time until now it covers five acres. The Hotel-Dieu of Lyons, said to have been founded by Childebert in the 6th century, almost equals it. Rome had twenty-four hospitals in-the 9th century; and in the 11th they began to be established for pilgrims in the Holy Land. Archbishop Lanfranc built a hospital at Canterbury in 1070. The oldest hospitals in London are, St. (CONTINUED ON FOUiiTH PAGE.) $$$?$:
