There is one enterprise in
Tarboro that should be more
than local. We allude to the
hospital—the Pittman Sanitar
ium—which already to this com
munity has beeu a veritable
Godsend, and if the people of
this section of the State will
avail themselves of it when in
need of hospital treatment they
will find it the same beniflcent
institution that have those who
have received treatment there.
Equipped as well as any sani
tarium or hospital in the large
cities, it deserves the patronage
of Eastern North Carolina. It
was not projected as a money
miking institution, but to facO
iate the treatment of patients,
by the physician*, with the best
burning, with the healthiest
It is managed by a board of
as ab!c physicians as any com
munity can boast, but these
doctors who are in control do
not exclude the patients of
other physicians or the physic
ians. It is open to both, to the
patient upon paying fees to
©over the cost, and to the
physician free of charge. He
can attend his patient himself
or he can make stated visits,
leaving it to the Home Physic
ian or, some other, and the
nurses to see that his direction*
are carried out. For example.
If a physician at a distance has
a patient on whom some sur
gfeal operation is nectesary.he
can send the patient on ahead,
and advise the suthorities when
he will arrive. They will have
everything ready and when he
