We are unable to announce this week that
the Dueber Watch Case Company has char
tered cars for the purpose ot shipping its
goods from the HUlsboro manufactory. A
meeting of the citizens was held at the
Court House last Tuesday evening, and
Messrs, Jacob Bay ler and I. A. Felbel were
appointed as a committee to go to Newport
and confer with Mr, Dueper concerning the
amount of lucre which would induce him to
bring his manufactory tnbls place, and If
possible to get the gentleman to coma and
view the landscape o'er. Mr. Dueber having
been absent in the East for some time
Messrs. Sayler and Felbel could not perform
their mission, but were treated very nicely
by the business manager, ho admitted that
our inducements were a little more than or
dinary, and promised that Mr. Dueber
would come to Ulllsboro that Is not the
manufactory but the manufacturer. There
is no question but that HUlsboro wants the
watch works and will try to get them here,1
but there lurks In the minds of a good many
of our citizens the Idea that It may all be an
advertising scheme. It Mr. Dueber is ''In
earnest," then HUlsboro is in earnest, but
she is no more so than many surrounding
towns and cities with whom she must com
pete. A Newport land-owner has offered to
sell bis property to Mr. Dueber at $4,000 leu
per acre than formerly in order to retain the
works. It HUlsboro is to secure the coveted
manufactory she must dilate upon her ad
vantages and shell ont the coin.

Sadly In Need of Belter Ac
Which the Ofllcers in Authority
Arc Inclined to Give.
For some time It has been known to thosn
who take nu Interest In the management of
the County Inilrmary that the"crazyhoase"
was in a bud condition nnd that matters In
stead of growing better have been getting
worse. The Insane have been steadily
Increasing in number, the building is
crowded , and the structure at first could not
have been woll fitted for Its Intended pur
pose. At present it is, as the Gazette says,
not a fit place to keep cattle. This Is not
from any fault of the superintendent but
from the utter lack of sanitary provisions,
of sewerage, and ot general adaptation.
The crazy house is dilapidated, the timbers
In the floor are rotten, and the entire frame
work Is giving way. In many places the
floor is broken and patched with plank and
tin and sine, in some pieces the floor gives
under your feet at every step, and in others
It has snnk, leaving a space ot several
Inches between It and thebaBe-board. From
these statements it is not hard to imagine
how uncomfortable the building would be
In winter. No heating apparatus can thor
oughly warm the building, and the Superin
tendent has often been obliged to remain up
all night attending to fire and keeping the
Insane persons from burning themselves at
In the women's department, upstairs in
the main building, little children are com
pelled to mingle with women, old and
young, lu every stage of imbecility and
tdlooy, and with vile mouthed bags, utterly
devoid of character. The Institution is so
over crowded that a number of lunatics
must sometimes be locked In the same cell,
the weak are at the mercy of the strong, and
fights are frequent. The Inmates now num
ber eighty-two, and of theso fourteen are In
sane and twenty-four are idiotic. Fifteen
are chl dren, two arc helpless cripples, nine
are between seventy and eighty years of age,
and five are over eighty. The county has
thirteen more than its quota at the Athens
Insane Asylum and It is only through the
solicitations of Probate Judge Dlttey and
other officials on account, of the miserable
condition of our Infirmary that these have
been retained so long. It is certainly neces
sary that tome provision be made, so luna
tics may be divided from the sane, and that
little children be separated from the deprav
ed and Idiotic.
For the purpose of discussing some im
provement of this sort, the County Commis
sioners met the Board of Directors at the In
firmary on Wednesday of last week. Rep
resentatives of the Oatette and News-Herald
and a few visitors were present. Sever
al plans were discussed and although none
was adopted, both Boards recognize the ne
cessity of doing something and are resolved
te do It. The plan which seems to find most
favor is to remove the old "crazy house"
and build almost upon Its site a larger struct
ure, forming an extension of the east end of
the main building. It is proposed that this
shall be long enough to contain eight or nine
cells of a medium size and wide enough
to allow a good hall between the two rows of
cells. Much of the brick and stone of the
old building can be used, nnd will reduce
the cost of the new.
What cries for attention more than any
thing else about the Infirmary, is the loath
some stench which arises from every quarter.
Here, again, if we seem to reflect on the
management, it is not Intentional, for the
Superintendent is not to blame. The sick
ening odor results from accumulations of
many years that the institution has been
tunning without sewerage or any adequate
substitute. This is a subject we would glad
ly leave out of type, but every citizen should
know the state of affairs and we feel con
strained to publish It. The privy Is In an in
closure of board fence right beside the crazy
house. It has long been the custom to set
the privy over a large vault and after a time
to remove it and cover the excrement with
earth. Bo long has this practice been kept
up that the ground is full of filth which
oozes from the surface, and the air in heavy
with nauseous odors. One man lay dead in
his cell on the day of onr visit and another
very low, and has since died. We do not as
sert that these deaths resulted from the un
healthy surroundings, but the air the in
mates breathe must Induce and foster dis
ease. No place Is better adapted for a perfect
system of sewerage than the ground Just
back of the Infirmary. A little more than
one hundred yards away Is a small ravine,
with enough depth to furnish an excellent
fall for a drain. As was remarked by a by
stander while the party was viewing the
ground, the ravine seems ordained by Prov
idence for the contemplated purpose.
Auditor LeFevre figures the cost of the
new building at about $0000, and others do
not differ much from his estimate. The
annual levy for the Building Fund Is 2-10
mtlls.whtoh prodnoesaboutS3000. If no un
forseen expenses are Incurred tbe entire cost
can be paid inside of three years Tbe move
ment Is now on foot and tbe work will prob
ablv ba bsaun without delay, ano all who
are acquainted with tbe imperative need of
toe innrmary win aarau ins aavisauuiiy or

Mr. Silas Coyu6r, a farmer living a few miles

dred men's hats, all the same style and all
new. They had never been unpacked but ware
done up nicely, as though ready for shipment.
About two months ago at an early hour in the
morning, Mr. Corner saw two men leaving his
barn and supposing them to be tramps who
had taken lodging in tbe barn over night he
inoueni no more anout tne occurrence, until
he found the hats. It is now thought that the
men had stolen the bats from a freight car
somewhere, and left them bid nnder the bay
on account of being to bulky to carry. The
hats range from 6 to 1M in size, and between
sixty and seventy of them are in good condi
