KING’S DAUGHTERS HOSPITAL
At the last regular meeting of the King’s Daughters Circle, it was resolved to build a magnificent addition to their River Front Hospital. The new addition will be erected in front of and adjoining the present building. The structure will be of brick, elegantly finished throughout, and it will be large enough to accommodate the demands of the Hospital for several years to come. Committees have been appointed to secure the necessary funds-from $15,000 to $20,000-to pay for the new building, and there will be no difficulty in getting the money from the good people of Greenwood and Leflore County.

BOUGHT LOT FOR HOSPITAL
The King's Daughters Circle bought at auction last Saturday the magnificent plot of land fronting on the Yazoo River and on Strong Avenue, located between the Coleman and Taylor residences on West River Front, paying $2150.00 for same, and will build their proposed new Hospital on this lot. A prettier location could not have been selected, according to our idea, and we congratulate the ladies upon acquiring this desirable property.
