In our last presentment wo re
commended that the bond of our
Sheriff and one of the County Com
missioners bo strengthened, which
recommendation*, we aro sorry to
sny, have not been carried out;
wo therefore insist and urge again
that sucli recommendations be
promptly complied with.
Time und again the grand juries
of our county hnvo recommended"*
that certain ropairs bo mado upon
tho county jail but such recom
mendations have been entirely dis
regarded. We repeat tho recom
mendations, that such .work bo
dono. Particularly wo*Und that
the old wooden cells or dungeons
which are impregnated witli the
impurities of long 1)30, bo either
renovated or displaced by new
iron lattice cells with belter venti

air to the prisoners.
We repeat our former recom
mendation in regard to tho public
officos in tin) court house. The
partition wall between tho office
formerly occupied by tho Master
and the Auditor's oflleo bo re
moved so.as to render tho olnco of
tho County Auditor commodious,
which chango we Und necessary to
preserve the records and books of
the said office. .
Tho court room of tho court
house is not so cleanly and neatly
kept as it should be. We call this
matter to the attention of tho Offi
cer whoso duty it is to keep tho
court room in a suitable-and com
fortable condition for tho holding
of tho courts of justice.
We also coll tho attention of tho
court to the previous roommnnd
ations of the Grand Jury in regard
to some repairs in tho Clerk of tiio
Court's office, which recommend
ations have been disregarded.
Wo find that the public roads of
the county are not in good condi
tion. Complaints are heard in all
parts of the county that tho roads
are not properly worked and that
in some sections of tho county there
arc public roads without an over
seer. Wo urge that tho roads be
worked as soon as practicable and
that the bridges bo put in suitable

In regard to the imprisonment
of persons sentenced to the county

Sheriff has allowed prisoners under
