Funeral services for Dr. Henry W.

The coffin was bedecked with a blanket of roses, and behind it a wall of flowers stretched almost across the room.

TRIBUTE BY DR. WISE

Dr. Wise recalled the growth of the Hospital for Joint Diseases from two ill-furnished rooms to its presentvast building. The hospital, Dr. Wise said, reminded him of the inscription over the tomb of Christopher Wren, "If you look for my monument, look about you." "Dr. Frauenthal blazed a trail as the dream of thisthing grew into a reality," Dr. Wise said. "{At firs the was all alone in his work. Some scorned him, some spoke laughter of him, but then a few friends gathered at his side. They were true friends, and as he advanced toward the translation of this shadowy dream into reality they were ever with him. He did more good than can ever be spoken of, as words are feeble things."

After Dr. Wise's eulogy came the rites by the Masons and the Elks.
