OLO year ago Atlanta had the brilliant, Bit no hospital. Atlanta has tho finest hospital as- o south. ame of the man the whole n admired. year the money has been se- are- -lie lot has been pnrciiased- The plans have been drawn and the work begun- Tha story of the is an interesting one. the first meeting of tho general council i'jiuuary of thi? year, Hon. Joseph Hirsch, the senior member from tho first ward, introduced a resolu- tion constructing a city hospital for Atl- anta, to be known as the Honry Grady hospital. liy the rosoluticu the council was to ap- propriate to- ward the work, and a committee of fifteen was to be appointed by the mayor to de- .rt) visa moans for car- out tlic resolution. The committee of appointed, constating of three mem- >r'-oItlK> council aad swcive citizens of At- rt meeting o? committee of fifteen, :iftor its appointment, Hon. Joseph 3 -ch was made permanent chairman, after a careful consideration of the q 1311011 several bubcommittoos were doter- B" .od upon, and Chairman Hirsoli was in- structed to appoint them. jji making those committees Mr. Hirsch Sinifested great wisdom. Mr. S. M, Innrm was mads chairman of a ctpnarttce to confer with the of the lanarolent homo property, then in litigation, view to them give that property to tho city for the purpobo of converting it into ash to assist in buiJilitig the Grady hospital. ,jg result of Mr. lum.-.u's work was the tnnsier of the property to the city to bo sold -ortho purpose Subsequently the was sold for which amount paid to tiio treasurer of the Grady hosnital committee, ?ess the amount of attorney's foes, x account oE litigation. Mr. Jacu-i was made chairman of 3 s committee, and J. W. 120 feet including the porte- cochere and 74 wide, including the front porch. This stands on tho higher part ol the lot, near the corner formed by the intersection ot Butler and College streets, and fifty feet from each It is the building of which tho sketch is given today. Its simplu Italian style belongs legiti- mataly to this genial climate. Tho material is stone to tho height of five feet above the ground, and above that a combination of brick and stone. The high basement is chiefly for purposes ot ventilation and heating, that is, generally speaking, for sanitary considerations and for minor xises win bo referred to farther on. Thfi lirst floor above the basement is divided tiio center by a wide hall which extends quite through, the build- ing from front to rear. At the intersec- tion of this with the hall that passes through tho hall longitudinally, are two niches for the reception of statuary. At the right of the cross hall are the matron's suite of rooms and the dining room for the officers of the institution and perhaps for such patients in the building as may occasionally be able to take their meals out of their rooms. On the north side of the hall are the directors' and consultation rooms, the reception room, dis- pensary and operating theater; the Litter large apartment extending in height through two stories and contain- ing circular seats for about 100 spectators, these seats arranged similarly to those in the upper gallery of a theater. The carriage entrance to the building, which is also the entrance to the wards, is through the porte-cochere at the .south end, and near to this is the secretary's office. The second story of the administration building is occupied by rooms for private pay- ing patients; that is, for strangers who may bo overtaken by sickness or accident, or for residents of tho city, or for others from the outside who may wish to avail themselves of tho skill, care and perfect sanitary conditions which, it is expected, will always be found hero, not to mention the afflicted ones for whom hospital treatment is indispensable. It is, doubtless, true that for most people who have pleasant homes of their own, homo seems the best place to be sick in; but, on the other hand, there is little doubt that many sick, people would recover more surely and promptly in a good hospital than at homo. Family affection, however dovoted, is not always able to provide the most conditions, the wisest care, in the race against disease. Quite the contrary, if it happens to bo handicapped by ignorance. Tho third story of this building also contains rooms that will be used for patients, or for the nurses and other permanent residents of tho institution. The buildings nearest to this large main building, and directly behind it, aro thfc gen- oral wards, of which two aro under contract, a third is expected to be added soon, and ulti- mately still more as the needs and tbe re- sources of the hospital increase. Each of these wards consists of two intimately con- nected departments; the front portion, which much. ot tho cooking and probably drive dynamo that supplies the light. It goes without saying that the most perfect sanitary provisions ana precautions that are available will be intro- duced, because if the situation is rightly un- derstood, sanitary surroundings with ekiUul nursing count for more in these latter days than many drugs, and a hospital that paid tithes of quinine, opium and calomel, negleO ing the weightier matters of pure air, equable temperature and wholesome regimen could not easily justify its own ex- istence. Minute descriptions ol not likely to interest general way it may be said that considering the purposes of this hospital and the circum- stances nnder which they are to be carried out, it would be inconsistent to go beyond absolute simplicity in the character of the work. It is intended that everything shall bo genuine, thorough, practical and wisely adapted to its with no elaborate orname n- >f building details are ay but builders.

He took to architecture in its infancy and is seen it grow strong, robust and extensive, .bid much of the growth of tho profession is e to Mr. Gardner's lectures and writings. Nearly twenty years ago he wrote a series of tides on tlio subject of domestic architecture the Sprfns- ti Hopnbli- which TV era :st immodi- f published ok form "by J of Boston, that with the 1 "Homos, How to wide oir- jnaii over e OTin. tr y m Euroye 1 South r'.o. This ell tion. The service ward contains the small tea kitchen for the occasional use of the ward the regular cooking for the whole establish- ment being done in another huilding; a small dining room for the use of convalescents; one or two private rooms; a small room for the nurse: the linen closet; tho washroom, bathroom and water closets; and the closet for the clothing which the patients wear when brought to the hospital, if it is worth preserving. The latter closet opens out upon the corridor and has no connection with the interior of the building. The wards for the sick, to which these ser- vice wards arn attached, and of which they are a part consist, each, of one long room, about tv, enty-six feet wide and eighty feet long and containing twenty beds. Those Targe ward rooms are abundantly- lighted by windows at both sides, and provided with such ample ventilation as to ensure a constant supply fresh air, both in warm and in cold weather. The next building of the group is that which contains on the ground floor the kite-lien, the laundry, "tUo coldroom. storerooms, boiler and engine rooms, and, in the second btory, eight rooms and a bathroom, for the servants and helpers The first story of this building is ol brick, tho second of wood and its entire length is 150 feel.

Still farther east, near the corner of Pratt and Jenkins streets, which is diagonally oppo- site from the corner on which the building described stands, and, in eftect, a separate in- stitution, are the buildings tor the use of the colored people. These are frame build- ii.ga, three in number, with space for one or. two more if they should be heeded in the future. Two of thefae are wards, similar as regards their arrange- ment to the brick wards mentioned above, the tlnrd, which stands near the entrance from Jenkins street being used for executive piir- also a detatchad building THE FIRST FLOOR PLAN. tation applied for the sake of display: no use- less features that pretend to serve some useful purpose but do not. Thus, the tower is a nec- essary support for a largo water tank, because, if thera were no other reasons for it, tho failure of tho aqueduct supply even for a few hours might entail very serious consequences; the porches are for the comfort and safety of those who enter or occupy the buildings, the main, staircase of white oak is broad and easy, not for the sake of a grander appearance, but for geater utility. The visible ventilating turrets are not raised aloft for picturesque purposes, but lor ventilation. The com- paratively small amount of rich carv- ing above the front porch and flank- ing the granite steps, is an appropriate visible recognition of the memorial character of the institution.; but the noble humanity of its pur- pose so thoroughly in accord with, the spirit ox his life work for whom it is named is a more vital, abiding monnmentthan any commemora- tion that can bo expressed in lifeless material, however enduring in substance, imposing m design or elaborate in execution. It remains for the people of Atlanta to give this enterprise the generous and enthusiastic support which they have given, and will con- tinue giving, to other good and wise under- takings that improve the welfare of the com- umity and make Atlanta figuratively, as well as literally, a city eet on a hill, whoso light cannot be hid. To Joe Hirsch, more than to any other man, Atlanta is indebted for the Grady hospital. Day and night he has labored for it, and his work has been crowned with success. Story after story of Joe Hirsch's charitable work could be written, but a note from one of his last night tells of bis manly, generous work better than it could be told again. Here is what that note says: 7 Jue Hirsch has put in the day raising funds and other necessaries, such as fuel and loud, for the man Wilkinson and his family, ont on Schntield street. This is thorax that was reported yester- day the man is very sick and the family in abso- lute want. Joe Hirsch h.ia been out there twice today attending to their wants.

All these various buildings, except the last, are brought virtually under one roof by the long connecting corridors whice, beginning at the porte-cochere attached to the south end ol the administration building extend, lirst, around to the operating room in this building and to tho consultation room where patients on being received are taken for examination. A branch from this runs back forty leet to the front of the brick wards pasbinjr in front of them all in a line parallel -with Butler street; from this a little distance to the nftht of the second ward or what will be between tho second and third ward the third is built; this cor- ridor runs back about feet further to the building which contains the kitchen, laundry, etc. At the corner this building it mikes a right angle, extending southward to within abouty twenty feet of Jenkins street, passing in front of the frame wards and joining the executive bnilding for these wards. The cor- ridors to the brick building are in effect two stories in height, that is, the lower story is level with the floor of the basement of these buildings and tho upper floor level with the principal door ol tho same. Owing to the slope of the ground toward the rear, the base- ment floor of the corridors, which is partly m the ground ot the front part of the lot, conies ont to the surface as it passes back and when it reaches the frame wards it is two or three feet above the ground and level with the .principal floor of these buildings. These corridors are an important nart of the plan. The lower one is in effect the railway system that affords direct com- between the different buildings.
