A Suggested McKinley Memorial

DR. KNOPF advocates, as a memorial to our martyred president, the establishment of a seaside sanatorium, or rather several sanatoria, where the scrofulous and tuberculous children of poor parents could receive treatment, care, and the necessary education. He thinks there will be found in every community responsible and patriotic citizens to take this matter in hand and bring it to a successful issue. Let each state contribute enough to have its own pavilion to which to send its children. Let the Atlantic and Pacific coasts be lined with such institutions, one or two pavilions for each state, according to its needs. Let good schools be attached to each sanatorium so that the intellectual development of the children may not suffer.
     Dr. Knopf says there exists in the North sea (German ocean), on the island called Norderney, a beautiful, flourishing sanatorium for the treatment of tuberculous children. Its name is “Kaiser Friedrich Hopiz,” and it was erected in memory of that unfortunate emperor, Frederick the Third, whom the German people so fondly called “Frederick the Noble.” France, Holland, and the Scandinavian countries all have numerous seaside sanatoria where little sufferers from consumption are cared for. Dr. Knopf says: “There are already laws in some states prohibiting the tuberculous child from attending public school; but as far as I know none of these states have provided other places where children suffering, it is true, from a chronic communicable but also curable disease can receive the education to which they are entitled.”
