In this little house Steward Chimann had some $29,000 worth of groceries, and adjoining it was the kitchen in which these groceries are prepared. In the kitchen are two large ranges, and across one side are two long tables, at which the visitors who have been duly accredited, and all the hospital employes, except the female nurses and the surgeons, take their meals. To prepare the food for the people under his care, Mr. Chimann has two cooks and about a dozen helpers and waiters.
