Edward's Infirmary is a two story brick building, {ttractive and homelike. It is surrounded by ample porches, on which convalescents de- light to linger. So popular is this in- stitution that even before entering its teens its patronage had outgrown its capacity. The need of more room is painfully felt and every effort has been made to devise ways and means of helping the Sisters to erect a suit- able hospital. As yet, however, the building of such a new fire-proof and altogether up to date hospital have been made and approved, and the friends and well-wishers of St. Edward's earnestly hope and pray that the long promised 'good time coming' may soon arrive and turn fond hopes into glad fruition." "The patients treated in St. Ed- ward's since its opening in 1905 num- ber 5,778. Of these 531 were Cath- olics, the others belonging to various non-Catholic religious denominations. Of the total number received into the infirmary 1,529 were charity patients. "The charity selwice is maintained solely by the annual allowance of the county and through the labors of the ladies' guild. There should be more general and liberal aid of the r doubt which is more happy, the giver or the receiver. Simultaneously with the organiza- tion of the guild was felt the need of a training school for nurses. Such a school was opened at the infirmary in 1906, under the auspices of the Sisters. It is conducted in an up-to- date manner, the pupils who take the course receiving the same training as given in large institutions in th cities. Lecturers are delivered by the infirmary staff of physicians, the head nurse or superintendent and on special subjects by visiting physicians and specialists. After a term of two full years nurses must pass a final examination previous to receiving di- plomas. The diploma must be sign- ed by the' president of the infirmary, the examining board and the superin- ten(tent of the Infirmary Training School. hnnmculate Conception Church and Its l)resent Pastor. In the most prominent place of Fort Smith, at the head of the principal busines,4 street of the city, stands the Church of the Immaculate Conception. When a cyclone had stl-ack the oll church and partly demolished it, in 1898, Bishop Fitzgerald made is easy for his lifelong friend, the venerable Street Scene in Fort Smith institution considering its service without discrimination." The kind but unknown friend who published the above paragraph in one of the local papers suggests "more general and liberal aid of the institu- tion," even while it was greatly help- ed by, the generous appropriation of the county, it is a matter of deep re- gret that the county appropriation has been discontinued. It ended with the year 1916. The sick poor still come to the infirmary where they are welcome and where they receive, all possible care and attention as long as they are in need of such. They are now supported "solely through the labors of the ladies' guild" and, of the Sisters in charge. It is evident that those who work for the poor are ani- mated by a very high motive, and that they regard their effols as a labor of love, else they would be greatly discouraged by the prevailing high prices and by the withdrawal of the county aid, for which they were so heartily grateful. Who will help make up for the loss of the. county aid ? "At an eaxly stage of the infirm- ary's existence it was found that the Sisters could not unaided support the number of sick poor who sought admittance. An appeal was made to the ladies of the city and they re- sponded with admirable promptitude : and generosity. ooo ooo oo00al DrYGarrisonGOOdSAve. C0" I "On June 29' 1906' they rganized a guild, taking for its patrons St. Vin- cent de Paul, that wonder-worker for the poor of France. Before the guild --""'''"'"" was a year old it had a membership Fort Slhith, Ark. of more than 200 and the number keeps steadily increasing. Owing to the act that there was another St. Vincent's guild in the city, and that, occasionally, the mails intended for one had, by mistake, been sent to the other, it was decided in 1908 to call the infirmary guild after the patron of the institution. Hence the name, St. Edward's Guild." The help which St. Edward's Guild renders to the infirmary is simply wonderful and its manner of bestow- ing is so graceful as to leave one in I:)IIY Goods, Ladies' Ready to Wear eri's F " " " uI mshlngs, Notmns, Toys . .

As if out of joint with the unwonted splendor the old patriarch, whose pas- sion had been to give way everything to the poor and to trust in Providence for the next day, was soon assembled to the fathers. He was succeeded by Rev. ,James P. Brady, who built the rectory on Thirteenth street. Since 1907 the Very Rev. P. F. Horan, D. D., has been pastor of the church.

A Monument should have significance and dignity, and tell to futnre generations the reasons for its existence.
