U. of M. Homoeopathic hospital
At first needy ones were cared for by
one and another, who learned of their
distress and who made an individual
canvas asking for funds to help those
cases. The children who were in the
Presbyterian Sunday school a few years
since, will remember giving ten dollars
to enable a bright little boy from one of
our northern counties to remain long
enough 'o be cured and given the power
of speech, and they will remember the
last Sabbath that the little fellow was to
remain, his standing up before the
school and thanking them with his own
voice. This was the method in use un-
til two years ago when this regularly
constituted society was organized to re-
ceive and disburse funds that should
come into its care.
To become a member of this "Hospi-
tal Guild" but one requirement is made,
the payment of not less than five cents a
month, though each can give as much
more as the purse will allow.
Our last year's work was one to make
us thankful, since from our members we
received $72.20 donations from friends;
$13, Marybed fund $28.70, and from the
Jarley's wax works, which was entered
into with so much willingness by our
University students and our citizens, the
sum of $183.
I trust our friends and the friends of
humanity will not forget when making
up their list of gifts to remember the
U. of M. Hospital Guild.
