NEW SISTER'S HOSPITAL.

will soon commence. The city engineer issued the building permit
on the 23d of this month. This permit, as can be seen from the
list of permits issued during the past week, calls for a $100,000
structure three stories high and with a large basement.

Endowed Ward Is Marked
With Bronze Tablet
Unannounced, and without ceremony, there has been placed at St. Paul's Sanitarium, a bronze tablet of beautiful design, marking the Mary Elizabeth Raney Davis ward for children. The donor was a former resident of Dallas and died a few years ago in the East. Among her bequests was one providing for a ward at St. Paul's for children to be maintained perpetually. Friends in the East corresponded with Sister Vincent at the St. Paul's, and after some delay, due to the completion of the annex, the Mary Elizabeth Rainey ward, equipped with six tiny iron beds and other essentials, was opened for children in accordance with the wishes of this good woman. Among the pictures hanging on the walls of the ward is one of the donor. The little patients often ask "who is the lady with the pretty face?" and they listen with interest when the sisters explain that it is through her kindness that they are being nursed back to health. The tablet, of unusual beauty and design, has been placed just to the left of the entrance to the ward.
