Listen to the Advice
Our honored and distinguished fellow-citizen, Mr.
John P. Branch, celebrated his eighty-second birth?
day on Wednesday last. The - Times-Dispatch," In
commenting upon it, quotes Mr. Branch as follows:
"A ru e of my ife has been to spend a part of my
earn ngs and deposit the balance in some good bank,
believing that a penny saved is equal to a penny made."
Here is a sermon in a paragraph, coming from a man
who has achieved grea success and s up-to-date.
We have many good banks in this city, and ours is as
strong as any Besides the usual service rendered by
all the banks, we c aim to render especial good ser?
vice, because we end money on Real Estate, thus
enabling people of moderate means to acquire their
homes, become independent and protect their fami?
lies. Our plan is the most liberal and inquiry will
cost you nothing.

[Dr. Drewry Denounces Habit at]
Keeping MenuUy Sick
People in Jails.
HOSPITAL'S ANNUAL REPORT
If. First to Reach Governor.
Cause of insanity Inter?
Vigorou. denunciation of the prac
| lice of keeping insane persons In thy
i tails of Virginia, is made by Or. WO"
liam Francis Drewry. superintendent
of the Central State Hospital, at Peters?
burg, la bis annual repirt to Governor
Mann. The report raine ia yeetcrday
and was bent on to the printer. As
usual. Dr. OrSwry iS the first State
official to iiit his report for tat yea'
ending September 30.
It la very evident that he it deeply
touched in the, matter of counnlng the
insane in Jails. U* givea n4ai. s anow
Ing that of the ;2H colored people ad?
judged inssno during t:ie past year,
tatj or it per cent, were committed to
Jail. There they an- naturally treate-a
as prisoners, yet they have dearly*
d:>ne nothing for Which they should be
punished. As rapidly as possible they
are sent for by the hospital authorities,
there being an average of three days
of such detention. TBfg lncludea peo-.
Pie from all parts of the State.
I lean as People Are Sieh.
Under no circumstances, advises Or.'
Drewry. should insane people be put in :
Jail nor. except In unusual cases, should
they be In charge of officers of the law.
instead they should be cared for like
or...er sick people until tbe guarda can .
tome for them.
"When this la done." he adda. "our
, newspapers would no longer have oc- i
casion to publish, perhaps to the mor
, UQcatton Of friends and later of the'
patient himself, detailed accounts un
oar the caption, "Arrested on a Charge
ef Insanity.' of the wild antics of some
poor, unfortunate, helpless, mentally.
wrecked Individual who occasionally j
! nukes a scene In public."
j During the year just e.nded 491 per- [
' tons were admitted. 234 were dls-1
I charged. 228 died. On October 1. 1911.;
I there were 1.433 lnmatea: on October 1. ,
1912. 1.477. The daily average lncreass ?
was sixteen. There Is an Increase ot
i per cent in the number of Inmates:
discharged and a decrease of 1 per,
cent in the nurffber of deaths.
Maar Are Iaeaumkee.
Thirty per oent nf the admissions are |
regarded as Incurables?dementias.
Idiots and paranoiac*. During the year
there were no deaths from accident. <
Tloler.ce or suicide. There were sev?
eral attempts st suicide, one resist?
ing seriously, when a woman jumped
from a window, injuring her spine,
j The cause of Insanity in negroes la
Virginia Is a most Interesting subject.
, In Dr. Drewry*s view. Heredity, hs
knows, plays a large part. Many
cases develop as the reault of excesses,
and not a tew under the stress of en>
tion resulting from a bereavement or
j from religious excitement- Altogether
j there is a rich field for research in this
i line, covering the subjects, as remedies, j
of eugeaics, sterilization and aegrega-1
Crisafcaals Kept Apart,
j All the colored criminal Insane are
: now kept separate. Tbe pr?sent build?
ing has a capacity of thirty-five, and
: a contract baa been awarded for an
addition which will accommodate
twenty more. This will be enough to ?
1 care for all of this class.
The pellagra cases are interesting. <
flnce the presence of the disease was
discovered. In 190s. there hsve been
sixty six cases. Thirteen of these
were men and fif A -BWree women
Forty-five have died, three have re
covered and eighteen are now under!
Financially, the hospital made Its!
usual ahowlng. which is the wonder ;
and deapalr of other such Institutions
throughout the country. Not counting
lnauranee and transportation of patt?
erns, the per capita coat of meinten-j

waa only $190.59.

There is a good deal of a factional ,
fight over the club at Midlothian An j
organisation was formed early In the !
campaign, at which officers were duly 1
elected, and its formation was repined ;
to Richard Evelyn Byrd, orgauiaer of i
clubs for Virginia. Some of the people |
in the neighborhood took no part in its
affairs, saying that it was started with
a membership of about six persona for ,
the purpase of controlling Chesterfield j
politics and Federal patronage after .
Wilson's inauguration. So those on the :
outside awaited their time, which came )
yesterday, and organised witb the mem?
bership Indicated above. I

in organizing the first club, saya that
he would have been glad to have ali
Democrats in that organisation, rather
than have the forces divided
Vast Fight It Oat.
It Is Improbable that Mr. Byrd wHl
assume to make a decision as to the '
regularity or Irregularity of either j
club. He Is not engaged in searching
age trouble. If either side or both
sides are after Federal office he will
let them fight it out higher up.
This is not the first division of the
kind which has come under Mr. Byrd's
notice. In one Virginia town a dub
was formed, composed of a portion of
the cltisenshtp. Finding that a ma?
jority of the members favored bis rival
for the office of postmaster of the
town, a leading club member withdrew
and organised a rival associatlan.
Both sides have been throwing remarks
and newspaper communications at
each other regarding each other's reg?

But. becoming serious, he expressed
the opinion that if Lb* sours of tb*

really moans, b* would he elected.
"W? are giving the people." h* said,
"the chance of their Uvea. When 1
say 'the people.' I meaa ths working
class, and when I say working oiaas'
x mean every individual who person?
ally gives bis time, labor, skill and
knowledge in tb* furtherance of tb*

teachers, physicians, artists, writers,
engineers, managers, farmers, skilled
