adjournment. All the tuemlcrs
present, SiiTvior Sinnct. chair,
man. presiding. The minutes of the
lat day's proceed in p of the Septem
ber session were rend and approved.
The following communication from
the committee on the poor farm wu
read by the clerk:
We. rour committee on wor farm,
would respectfully rrjM.rt that after
our apHintmeiit a such committee,
that wo visited the intirmary. and
our attention was called to the neces
sity of water, as the wind mill was
insufficient for supplying the dailv
ant, and the pump that was in was
not In working order. We had ex
perienced pump men to investigate,
and each one said that the casing ol
the well was too small, it In-ing only
three inches. We made several ex
periment, and finally found we
could put in a three and one-half
inch easing :'..) feet, w hich we did.
and liought a 36-inch cylinder.
Hooker pump cylinder, cushioned at
both rmt. and can be run Ml to ,Vl
stroke cr minute, and will furnitdi
one gallon of w ater, and don't have
to run the pump one.third of the
limv. It d ics Rot take near the
i. mount of steam to run this pump a
it did the (del one. The cot of the
pump and the three and one-hall
inch casing wa and they took
the old pump and the three inch eas
ing at . so the new pump and
three and one-half inch caning, cost
ii cash, placed on the well, to.?.
We hate alo remodeled the base,
meat id the crazy hoiiso. making live
nice rooms, and can accommodate It)
persons, and keep them ajarl if they
are violently insane.
We have extended, or rebuilt, our
coat sheds so that we can store up
three month coal ahead, and will
not lie obliged to haul coal in break
ing up of the road. We have also
newly cemented all of our cisterns,
and thev are all in good chape and
plenty of water in them: also tauks.
1'lii work has all been done by in
mates id the intirmary, under the
supervision of Mr. Iow". except afew
da a' plumbing in the base inert of the
rray house. We have on hand
about one thousand bushilsofold
corn. We conld have rn.ld it, but
did not dare to risk it. for fear we
might not rae enough for our own
u. We have 2.0 m loi-hels of new
corn in the cribs, and all of the stalks
are stacked up for fodder. Wc linve
i.Yl bushels of oats iu the bin and
1,2 H) bushels of p tatoes in the cel
lar, all raised on the farm, with a
large amount of vegetables.
'J here are at present 117 inmates,
several are old and feeble, and need
a good dual of care. Mr. Ihtw is do
ing all he can to make' them com
fortable, lie is also utilizing all tiie
skilled lalior of the inlirmary for the
iM'lielit of same. The farm U in good
condition, fences well kept up. fall
plowing all done and all the build
ings in good repair, and everything
alxnit the place is clean and well
taken care of.
1 here is one thing wc wish to call
to the attention of the Isiard, and
that is the necessity of having a tele
phone at the inlirmary. W hile we
have had no talk with the company
we understand that they will fiirnib
a telephone for three years at f5 per
ear; we are toput upthe line, which
can le done very cheaply. Mr.
Iavis is going to cut down a good
many electric light poles in Kock Isl
and and Moline, and they w ill an
swer our pursje and can tie bought
very cheap, and the wires, etc.,
would not cost very much; the pole
eonld all le set by inmates of the in
firmary. It will he a convenience
and a saving. and we recommend that
it he put It, providing that wo can
make proper terms with the tele
