A Hospital

Our Muscatine contemporary is riled because our citizens are making an effort to secure a hospital here.  Not having the public spirit to claim anything of the kind for their village, they feel indignant that anybody else should move in the matter.  We are sorry they feel so bad, and hope as Muscatine has sent so many boys to the war her citizens may at least establish a private infirmary.
