At the recent opening of the new addition to the New York Orthopædic Hospital " flowers and enthusiasm bloomed." Among the addresses delivered on that occasion was one by Dr. T. Gaillard Thomas, who took for his theme the humane sentiment and generous gifts which are flowing constantly in New York in behalf of the crippled and helpless of every name and nature—a work that abundantly warrants the giving to the metropolis the title of "City of Noble Charities." The value of the gifts lately received by the Orthopædic Hospital approximates $50.000. A nucleus has been formed for the establishment of a summer branch in Astoria, on Long Island.
