Dr. Douglas Resigns.
The resignation of Dr. J. P
Douglas as Superintendent of the
Western Hospital took effect Mon
day, and he and his family left this
week for Arlington, their future
Witn tne exception or about six
months, Dr. Douglas has had charge
of the institution since its comple
tion inl889, and under his super
vision and control it has expanded
and enlarged until it is now one of
the noblest of Tennessee's charities.
Originally the Hospital opened with
150 patients, who were brought by
Dr. Douglas on a special train from
Nashville. This number has been
iucreased until now over 650 un
fortunates are cared for at the
Western Hospital. Some of the
improvements under Dr. Douglas'
regime are worthy of especial men
tion: The building of an Annex
for colored insane, with a capacity
to accommodate 150 patients; the
erection of a 40,000 gallon water
tank; an electric light, gas and ice
plant; three story brick store room;
a handsome green house; the addi
tion of 340 acres of land to the farm,
which has been brought up from an
old, worn-out cotton farm to a high
state of cultivation; one of the best
dairies in the state aud a large and
valuable herd of Holstein and Jer
eeys oesiaes many other minor
Dr. Douglas has always taken
great pride in the institution and
has been faithful to the trust. He
retires volantarily from a lucrative
position, which is something un
usual, and he not only carries with
him the satisfaction of a clear con
science of duty well done, but he
has the love, respect and- esteem of
officials, attendants nd patients.
He leaves the finances of the
Hospital in a healthy condition all
outstanding accounts having been
liquidated and $20,000 in cash re
maining in the treasury to its credit.
In his resignation the State has
lost an economical, honest, faithful
and conscientious official, the insane
a humane and kind friend, and the
community a christian gentleman
Dr. Douglas and his estimable wife
anu interesting little son will always
have the best wishes of the people
At a meeting of the Board of
Trustees held Monday, the follow
ing resolutions were passed:
We your committee, appointed to
draft suitable resolutions with re
gard to the voluntary retirement of
Dr. Douglas from the Superinten
dency of the West Tennessee Hos
pital for the Insane,
Beg leave to state that during his
long incumbency of this responsible
position he has been faithful to the
trust, and by his watchful care and
untiring efforts to promote the wel
fare, comfort and happiness of the
unfortunate inmates of this institu
tion, he has brought to bear a wor
thy moral standard of character, and
a high order of executive ability,
which has resulted in developing
the Hospital into and sustaining it
as one of the noblest charities in
We wish further to state that a
thorough examination of the books
and assets of the Asylum show that
the books and youceers agree, and
that the institution is in a healthy
We, as Trustees, regret the re
tirement of Dr. Douglas, and wish
to express to him and his family our
high appreciation of their valuable
services, and for the courteous
treatment they have ever extended
to us during our association with
them in the management of this

"The substantial token received
from you last evening came as such
a surprise that it overpowered my
emotional make up, but, I want to
assure each and everyone of you
that the motive that prompted the
gift will be kindly remembered by
me while I live. I do not appreci
ate it so much for jts intrinsic value,
notwithstanding it is a valuable
piece of goods, but there was a mo
tive behind the donation that makes
it far more valuable, and I want to
say that each of you have a warm
place in my heart, and while we
may be separated, my prayer shall
be for the success and happiness of
you all, and finally that we may be
gathered to our homes where part

Work of the Weather Bureau.
The United States Weather Bu
reau, formerly ridiculed by the ir
reverent, has come to be one of the
most popular branches of the gov
ernment. Its reports are daily
scanned by millions of readers, and
its daily bulletins to those who are
fortunate enough to receive it, is
awaited with almost as much in
terest as the daily paper. The
Weather Bureau has so far im
proved iu the esteem of the public
that its records are now used in the
courts. "The use of the Weather
Bureau record in the adjudication
of legal claims is . constantly in
creasing, and their value as evidence
is now fully realized ia all sections
of the couutry," said an official of
the department. It is indeed diffi
cult to form an idea, even approxi
mately, of the number of limes
Weather Bureau reports have been
of service in such matters, as the
great majority of cases never reach
the courts, but are settled without
trill. Evidence as to the weather
is a factor in a great variety of
cases, both civil and criminal. The
civil cases are largely personal in
jury, damages to perishable goods
by freezing or rain, and loss by fire.
The criminal cases are usually con
fined to murder trials."
Weather Bureau records have
figured in some of the most notable
murder trials. An observer was
called by the defense in a murder
trial in order to show that the
night the victim disappeared was
dark and threatening. It was ex
pected that this statement would
contradict that eriven bv two wit-
nesses tor the prosecution, who
testified that they, although distant
several hundred feet, saw the ac
cused take the victim into a factory.
In another murder trial evidence as
to the temperature only was in
troduced by the prosecution It
was desired to show that it was
possible to keep the body of a mur
dered man a month in midwinter
without attracting attention. With
the increase 'in the number of ob
serving stations and more compre
hensive and complete meteorologic
al data at hand the weather service
will naturally be a still more im
portant factor in the settlemeut of
claims and the trials of. suits in
which the question of the weather
in any of its phases enters."

doing the fair as a fully armed and
uniformed, Jefferson Guard. If
any of my friends in Tennessee
want to know, anything about the

readers want to see me when they
come, they can get on a car just in
side the gates and ride to station 12
and ' get off. Oar barracks are
about fifty yards to the right upon
a hill in the trees. I will be at
quarters most of the time except
when on guard eight . hours in
twenty-four. The work is easy and
gentlemanly and all the boys I have
met seem to be gentlemen.
Since I am here I do not see how
anyone can afford to miss the fair.

can look out upon a million lights
gleaming along the outlines of the
buildings until in the night they
seem to be great structures of fire.
