'What is conceded to be the best
military hospital now in existence, is
the American Ambulance hospital in
Paris. This institution, incorporated
under the laws of the United States, is
under the auspices of the American
Hospital, which has long been estab-
lished in Paris.
At the beginning of the war, Ameri-
cans in Paris, still inspired by the
work of the American ambulance in
the Pranco-Prussian war of 1870, con-
ceived the idea of establishing a hos-.
pital for wounded soldiers, irrespec-
tive of nationality. Hon. Myron T.
Herrick, the American ambassador to
France, lent his aid and encourage-
ment and was largely instrumental
in the successful achievement of this
At the beginning, th'e board of gov-
ernors of the American hospital ap-
pointed a committee of five prominent
residents of Paris to raise funds' and
organize and administer the new hos-
pital, giving them the fullest powers
to this end. Special departmentswere
organized with American specialists
in charge. An example of this is the
dental department, under the direction
of Drs. Hays and Davenport, who col-
laborate in the treatment of wounds
affecting the teeth and jaw.
The French government placed at
the disposal of the committee in
charge of the work a large and near-
ly finished school building, known as
the Lycee Pasteur, just outside the
walls of Paris. By September this
building had been transformed into
a modern hospital and was ready to
receive patients. It was thoroughly
equipped with X-ray apparatus, path.
'ological laboratories, and all the lat-
est appliances known to medical and
surgical science.
Beginning with 170 beds, the hos-
pital now has 440, and an additional
200 at Hospital B at Jouilly. During
December the building was 86 per
cent filled,' and in January, 88 per
cent. It is doubtfulawhether any
other hospital in Paris during the
present war has shown such a large
percentage of its capacity utilized.
Very quickly the hospital, which is
operated under the direct authority
of the French minister of war, gained
a splendid record for efficiency. The
most difficult cases have been sent
there, but the mortality has been only

7.90 per cent, a remarkable record
when it is remembered that almost
all the patients entering the hospital
are suffering from some kind of in-
fection and that gangrene and tetanus
have been much more prevalent dur-
ing this war than was at first antici-I
The hospital is organized in two divi-
sions under the charge of Dubouchet
and Dr. Blake respectively, and a
third division is in charge of well,
known surgeons from the United
States, serving in rotation.
In addition to the base hospital in
Paris, the "Ambulance Americaine"
has organized an "advanced" hospital,
known as Hospital B, at Jouilly, about
30 miles nearer than Paris to the
battle-fields. This hospital has a ca-
pacity of 200 beds, was instituted and
is maintained through the generosity
of Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney; and is
under the charge of Dr. Walton Mar-
tin, of New York.

The forestry department has re-
cently received a practically complete
set of sections of timber species exist-
ing in the United States. Complete.
sets are extremely rare and are pos-
sessed by only a few institutions in
this country. The species are thin
and square and are cut radially and
The purpose of sets of this kind is
to aid in wood identification. Many
times during the year the forestry de-
partment is called upon to decide on
the merits and quality of wood used
by business firms. The department
has been of great help in protecting
the lumber dealers of the state from'
frauds, and with the new equipment itl
is thought that its efficiency will be
greatly increased.

several universities considering the
formation of others.

One of theliveliest scenes came in
the second act, when, thanks to the
exigencies of the plot, the aristocratic
society leader Mrs. DePeyster is spi-
rited to Mrs. Gilbert's popular-priced
East-side boarding house, where the
rule is "that guests may not whittle
pickles." Here the heroine, who is
Mrs. Gilbert's housekeeper, was able
to combine acrobatic novelties with
exceedingly clever and trite lines. The
result was a continuous round of mer-
riment, which on the whole was evi-
dent all throughout the play.
