lowing:
To the Honorable Circuit Court ot
Morgan county, State of Missouri:
We, your Grand Jury, beg lerve to
make the following report:
We find the county court house in
fair condition, but would respectfully
recommend that if practicable a new
tile roof be placed on said building.
We also recommend a system of sew
age and water closets or toilets.
There should aiso be furnished com
fortable chairs for the jury rooms and
rest rooms for witnesses placed under
the rule and required to remain out
of the court room during the trial of a
case.
As requeued, we, in a body visited
the new County Home for the poor
and found the same located about one
mile southeast of the court hoiue in
an ideal location with splendid drain
age and perfectly sanitary. The beds
and bedding new and clean, good
water, the inmates perfectly satisfied
with the care and attentim of their
superintendent, Mr. Oscar Morris, and
we believe and assert that said home
is a credit to the taxpayers of Morgan
county and an honor to the officers
who erected same. We would fur
ther suggests that if the taxpayers of
the county will visit the home, there
will not be so much unjust criticism
ot it and of the purchase of the land
upon which it is erected and the
construction of the building.
