HOSPITAL SUNDAY IN LONDON. The annual collections in the churches, and in the chapels of all denominations In the metropolis, on behalf of the hospitals and medical charities of London, were made on Sunday. To St. Paul's Cathedral the Lord Mayor went in State. When the service commenced the congre- gation was comparatively small, but as the ser- vice proceeded the seats under the dome were better filled. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Preben- dary Burrows, vicar of Edmonton, from the Acts of the Apostles, c. i., v. 10: "Who went about doing good and healing all who were possessed of the devil." The preacher said it was a great honour that the Lord required them to carry on the work which interested Him during his sojourn on earth. The work of of relieving eicknesa was the one in which the Lord specially interested himself, and a great deal of his time was sp6nt in relieving bodily weakness. The work of ad- ministering to the poor suffering people had been left as a work for them to do, and he had to make an appeal on behalf of the institutions which, in this country, did that work. He trusted that this year an impulse had been given to the cause of hospitals and good nursing by the action of the Queen, who had specially distinguished those nurses who had shown conspicuous merit in this occupation; The reverend gentleman proceeded to point out the advantages of hospitals for the poor, whert sanitary ammgemente wert perfect, the proper liet ordered by the doctor was at hand, and many lomforts were provided which could never be obtained n a poor household. At the afternoon service the Archdeacon of London was the preacher. The col- ection in the morning amounted to -968 17s. 9d,, and ihat at the afternoon to J343 149. 7d., making a total )f JE112 12s. 4d.
