Statistics or Insanity, Idiocy, SHnd&ess,
Pauperism, Crime and Ifeatb.
The compendium of the "Tenth
Census," a volume of 1769 pages, con
tains, among other things, a summary
of the report of Mr. Frederick H.
"Wines upon the defective, dependent,
and delinquent classes. The moat
striking result of the work was the ap
parently great increase in the number
of those included in the three classes
named. The number of insane persons
idiots, blind persons, and deaf-mutes,
as shown by the several censuses, was
50,994 in 1850; 58,451 in 1860; 98,584
in 1870, and 251,698 in 1880. In other
words, although the population has a
little more than doubled in thirty
years, the number of defective persons
returned is apparently nearly five times
as great as it was thirty years ago.
The increase of population between
1870 and 1880 was only thirty per
cent., while the apparent increase of
these defective classes was 155 per
cent "While there were only 2554 de
fective persons in each million in 1870,
there were 5018 in each million in
1880. Mr. Wines says that it is im
possible to believe that there has, in
fact, been so great an increase. Either
the enumeration in 1880 was excessive
or the enumeration in 1870 was incom
plete. The bureau was assisted in the
work by 80,000 physicians, and Mr.
"Wines belioves that a much more per
fect enumeration of the defective
classes, especially of the insane and
idiotic, has been secured than was ever
before presented in the history of tbls
or any other nation. Of the 91,997 in
sane persons forty-four per cent, were
in hospitals and asylums; of 76,895
idiots three per oent. were in training
schools for the feeble-minded; of 46,928
blind persons, less than four and a half
per cent, were in schools and indus
trial homes for tho blind, and 33,878
mutes, nearly sixteen per cent., were in
schools established for them. Of tin
deaf persons, one-half were between
the ages of five and twenty-one, but
not more than one sixth of the blind
were between those ages.
It appears that insanity attacks
women more frequently than it does
JU1UU, DUO lilUU uuiuv v..
more liable to be idiotic, blind or deaf.
The negro population is much more
liable to idiocy than insanity. Both
the negro and the foreign population
are singularly more liable to blindness
than to deafness. The tendency of the
foreign population to insanity is
especially worthy of attenion. "It
is startling to know," says Mr.
"Wines, "that of 50,000,000 of in
habitants,over 400,000 are either insane,
idiots, deft-mutes, or blind, or are in
mates of prisons, reformatories, or poor
houses. If to those we add the out
door poor and the inmates of private
charitable institutions, the number will
swell to nearly 'or quite 500,000, or one
per cent, of the total population. "We
cannot begin too soon or prosecute too
vigorously the inquiry into the cauBes
of the prevalence of these evils, which
are like a canker at the heart of all our
Tho number of paupers enumerated
in almshouses was 67,067, and the
number of prisoners in confinement
was 59,255. There were 11,340 in
mates of reformatories for the young
Of the prisoners 16,000 are maintained
The death-rate of the United Statest
as established, by the number of deaths
recorded, was fifteen, one to the thous
and, a rate decidedly higher than those
given in the censuses of 1860 and 1870
This does not indicate, however, any
actual increase in the rate, but shows
llittO (jIio r-4.iY-Tio in 1 fiQO trrorft TnOrft
complete. Adding estimates of defi
Ciences, the agent in charge estimates
the actual death-rate at somewhere be
tween seventeen and eighteen per
thousand. The rate in England in the
same year was twenty and a half. Of
the total number of deaths reported,
which was 756,893, the cause in 19,551
oases was consumption; diphtheria
caused 38,898 deaths; enteric or ty
phoid fever, 32,905; malarial fever, 20,
261, and accidents or injuries, 85,932.
The death-rate of the colored race is
much greater than that of the white.
The jury room of the criminal court,
in St Louis, was, a few days ago, the
scene of an extraordinary tragedy.
John 0. Parker, a criminal who has a
record of the blaokest kind in many
western cities, killed his wife and him
self. He was a native of St Louis,
and about thirty-three years old. He
was awaiting trial for killing John Pay
ton in a saloon. His pretty young wife
Nellie, and their five-months old baby,
was in the court room in company with
his two sisters. The wife leaned
against the wire screen and talked to
her husband somo time while another
case was being heard. It was remark
ed at the time that they were very
affectionate to one another A deputy
sheriff, who noticed their behavior,
said to the reporter that the only re
deeming trait in Parker's nature was
his love for his wife, whom he had
married about two and a half years
ago. She was considerably above him
in the social scale, and sacrificed her
family ties to link her fate with his.
"While the husband and wife were con
versing Parker's lawyer asked that he
might have a conference with his client.
Accordingly the prisioner was taken
from the cage by a deputy sheriff; and !
walked through the court into the jury l
room. His wife walked by his side,
and his sisters and attorney followed.
They took seats, and the prisoner
began to give his lawyer a list of wit
nesses. The wife was seated by her
husband's side. Something drew the
attention of those present from the
prisoner when a shot rang out, and
before any one could interfere, a second
one was fired. The first shot sent a
bullet through Mrs. Parker's brain.
killing her almost instantly. The
econd shot Parker fired while he held f
the weapon close to his own temple. '
He died within an hour. Neither he
nor his wife spoke after they received
their wounds. Late in the evening a
letter was found written bv Parker,
wherein he showed that the whole plan
was arranged that he should kill him
self and his wife and that she had help
ed him plot against her own and his
life. "When she went to the court
room, therefore, she knew she was
going to meet death. Tet she walked
across the room without a tremor and
entered the jury room, though she
knew that to cross the threshold was
to step into the grave.
Some TJpefnl Hints to Uonsckeepers
About Washing and Ironlii;?
First have the clothes well sorted.
Let the table-cloths and napkins be
washed by themselves, and each piece
looked over carefully in order to see if
there are any fruit or coffee stains on
the pieces; if so, pour boiling water
over the fruit-stains, several times if
necessary, until they are removed, and
soak coffee stains for a little in cold
water, which will generally take them
Let the sheets, pillow-cases and cot
ton underwear be washed and boiled
together; then the towels and white
cotton stockings; white shirts, gar
ments to be starched and handkerchiefs
coidd be put together, then tea towels,
and last of all the flannels. That"
clothes may be washed clean, use a
good soap and an abundance of warm
water. Clothes will not bo white if
washed in a little water in the bottom
of a tub, and a cheap soap 13 not econ
omy, and often leaves a disagreeable
odor, even after a careful rinsing.
Have the water merely warm in
your boiler when the clothes are put
in, and rub a little soap on each piece
before boiling. Do not boil over fifteen
minutes, as a longer time is apt to give
the linen a yellow hue. After the
clothes are removed from the first
boiler, dip out half the w.ater, and pour
in enough cold to fill your boiler half
full, and go through this process each
time. Many servants, unless directed
otherwise, are apt to put the second
quantity into the boiling water from
which they have taken the first, and
then pour in whatever extra amount Is
needed. But putting the clothes into
boiling water will leave them yellow,
while the other process is a cleansing
After removing from the boiler, rinse
them thoronn-hlv in n. larcro tub of
water, then blue them in another. We
have found it well during the winter
to have sheets, nillow-cases and cotton !
underwear washed first, then take1
linen, as they dry quickly, and are '
ready to bring into the house, when !
the starched clothes, which need to
hang much longer on the lines, are
ready to put out. The starched clothes
should be out during the brightest part
of the day, and the flannels should be
washed so as to have the benefit of the
sun also: To keep them soft and nice
do not put them all into a tub at one
time, but take up each piece separately,
wash in as hot suds as you can com
fortably bear your hrnb, then rinse1
immediately in another tub of hot
water, squeeze very dry, snap out, and
after pinning on the line, pull them '
into shape. Flannels should never be !
As there is no odor about a house
more disagreeable than that produced
from boiling clothes, or the steam from
the drying of them in the house, when
the day is too stormy to hang them out
of doors, let every housekeeper be par
ticular in this matter, not only to keep
the doors between the kitchen or laun
dry and the house closed, but to insist
that the windows in the kitchen shall
be lowered a few inohes from the top,
even in the coldest weather, that muci
of the disagreeable air may escape. J
Early rising, systematic planning,
good soap, an abundance of water, pure ;
air and a cheerful temper are necessary
to make a happy washing day, and the ,
washing and ironing well done and
greatly to the comfort of a household.
