THE SICK POOR OF PARIS. The Lancet contains a description of the new Central M igaz ne of Palis, from which the hospitals berea.ux de bienfaisance and maisons de secours are fupplied with every possible necessary. Here are stored the personal effects of those who have died in the public hospitals, and whose friends are unable to redeem the ri lies, which they readily ca.n do by paying the fees for hospital treatment. Here are old men's chairs, and piles of weli-worn arms and legs. Here are feathers and occasionally brilliants. And all this lumber is sold off every three months. Ttie store is disposed in blocks, lettered and num- bered. There is exquisite neatness, order, and cl-an- linehs. Hospital sheets, pillowcases, &c., are all of regulated quality. The bandages are of the softest texture. The work is executed by the poor, who make all the clot hing. In anothbr rlepartment the hardware and crockery are kept. Contrivances for the use of the sick, such as crachoirs, murht-lamps, tisane pots, little goblets, phials. brushes, &c.—everything, in fact, from a "mar- wite" to a mousetrap. In the food department there are sacks of haricots, peas. rice, lentils, and semolina, and all of the best quality. Above all are the stores of made-up clothing grouped in squares, each square belonging to a special hospital. There are packets of layettes in astonishing numbers, each of which consist of twenty-seven articles. Then there are trouserings for orphans of every age, from one to eighteen years. There is the toilette for orphan girls of two or three years, and trousseaux for young women. Here, also, are huge bundles of hospital linen, made up hy the sick and so complete is the system that not a yard of linen nor a child's pinafore can be lost. Lastly, there are piles of hospital beds, mattresses, and the light, warm edred-ms under which almost the poorest contrive to sleep. Then there is a department for cutting out, and another in which mending is con- tinually go;ng on. In every corner there is seen the moral and pecuniary value of order.
