New Pauper House at County In
firmary Visited by Board
PLANNING TO DEDICATE DEC. 29
Anniversary of Darning of the Old
. Structure Today's Pro
ceedings. While the date is yet to be deter
mined definitely, it is probable the
new pauper house at the county in
firmary will be dedicated Dec. 2'.), the
anniversary of the burning of the old
building a year ago.
The new structure, which is com
plete except the painting, which will
be finished Saturday, was inspected
yesterday afternoon by the board of
supervisors, which went to Coal Val
ley as a br.dv. The members were
diiven from the Valley to the infirm
ary in vehicles furnished by Steward
.lohn C. Swank.
The pauper house is three stories,
with basement, its dimension 58x100,
with east and west wings extending
from the center, and is constructed of
domestic brick. It is said to be as
fine an institution of its character in
the state. The cost will be about
The dining room occupies the entire
central portion of the basement. To
the north of it are various store
room. To the south and west of the
corridor, which opens into the dining
room, is the kitchen. West of this
hall are the office, drug store and a.
store room for dry goods. The ar
rangement of the interior on the first
and second floors practically repre
sents sparate buildings, under one
roof, for the male and female in
mates. At the axis of the building on
each floor are two sitting rooms,
which by the opening of the sliding
doors may lie converted into one large
assembly room. The room facing the
west entrance is for the women. It
connects with' a hall which bisects
the south wing, and on either side of
which are large dormitories, with two
smaller rooms for invalids. The ar
rangement of the north wings for the
men is the same. Fach wing contains
hath rooms and toilets. On the third
floor, which is an attic story, there is
a men's dormitory is feet in width and
extending the entire length of the
building. It contains every proxision
for the comfort of the inmates, and
will be well ventilated, alcoves ex
tending to the windows in tin wings
so that direct ventilation may be had
from all sides. The interior is finish;
ed in pine an I hard plaster, and the

MILWAUKEE ROAD TO USE
NEW STYLE OF MAIL CRANE
The Chicago, .Milwaukee St. Paul
railroad company has entered into a
contract with I,. W. Marker, of Clin
ton, for a large number of mail cranes
to install upon the new Kansas City
cut-off of the line. The cranes are in
progress of manufacture and a num
ber have already been, delivered.
Mr. Marker's patent mail crane has
many advantages over the clumsy, im
perfect cranes which are at present
used by the railroad systems in this
section of the country. In the first
place, they are constructed entirely of
iron, and thus are not subject to de
cay as are the present wooden and
wood and iron cranes used bv many
of the roads. The insure certainty
of delivery of the mail sacks to pass-
ng trains, a most important provis
ion, and which is lacking in the other
cranes, by the use of which the mail
sacks are often torn and sometimes
the cranes themselves injured. An
other important advantage of the new
cram for the- railroad companies is
its simplicity of construction. It costs
much less than the cranes now being
used, which, when the number of
cranes used by a road is considered,
means a large saving to the company.
Also, the iron crane is never out of re
pair, and will last for many years.
somet hingxx Inch cannot be said of the
old-f ashioued wooden crane.
