"truo history" of tho rise and progress of
tho .Southern Illinois It.sano .Uylum is
about as true a thu "Narrative of Artfiur
Gordon I'you, Gulliver, or any other
man. He says:
"When tins eimmlsslonurs tlrst enmu to

landed at Anna, nnd were immediately
surrounded by tho tnttrtUl ones of that

The "Interested ones' certainly showed
f.tlrnen u wull 11 zeal in giving tho
commissioner notice to look nt tho pro
posed site west of Anna.'1 How tlioy
could enhance their personal interests by
serving said notice, i not quite clear.
According to J. A.'a showing, thu disin
terested citizens of Jonesboro otTered more
Inducements In tho way of cheap lands and
etceteras than did our people. In fact, wo
entertained sutllclcnt respect for tho com
mlionor to prevent our over trying to
infmonco them In any way, und to havo
tried ' to gull" men like them would havo
been 111 egotistical ns nbsurd. .Mr. J. A. be
comes very weak and feeblu when ho
talks about somo one assisting Mr. Wiley
'in gulUng the eommisslonncri.'' It's as
good ajoko n the moon hoax In saying
that tho water of tho spring, which is to
supply tha inylum N dcllelent iu quantity
nnd bad In quality he treads iu tlio foot-
tttqis of Aunniiijs und breaks thu tlf

very the roughly diJciiod and dueldnl fa
vorably long ago. Enough water U run
ning front the lingo spring to run 11 mill,
nnd the water Is puru and clear at crystal.
Tli' .I"nc -boro spring f 'om which ",. A.1'

its waters from tho vast subterranean luko

tho asylum grounds. It emerges from tho
font of these hill and follows "thu star of

stait from the jjr.-at reservoirs ti trior the
rock-ribbed asylum grounds tunnel be
neath tlio Anna elovittlon and unite to
form this eiiiiio donesboro or Dougherty

is unknown to thu outside world, but thu
