NE STATE HOSPITAL.
Tbc Care of the State's Insane During the Past Year. The fellowing is the annual report ?ff the board of regents of the State Hospita; for the Insane; therein the ".enfctage *pian" for further necessary &?3dH*g^ is vigorously urged: To His Excellency M. B. Mcsweeney, Governor of South Carolina. Stn OD behalf of the board of re sents of the State Hospital for the In sane I i^rewith respectuflly submit to your' excellency their annual report for the year ending Dec. 31, 1899, to gether with the reports of the superin tended 2nd treasurer. . The report of the superintendent shows that there were under treatment at the <-os-e of the previous year 966 j patients, of whom 584 were white males 24\ females 343; and 382 col ore?!-?ples 183. females 199. There were Emitted 415 new patients .arhite 224; colored 191. The discharg ed namber 397. The daily average somber ander treatment rose from 375 to 5&8. "Many cf these patients were ad Tanccii ta years and in feeble health and Beaded more than ordinary care, she de-tails of which are brought out in the opsrintendent's report and the Statistical tables. WJa?y we may well deplore the ex istence of this ever increasing number of the mentally afflicted in our midst, yet we cannot evade the responsibility placed upon us by our common hu- , nani ty as well as by the constitution of the Srate to provide for them ade quately. 'The steady growth of the in stitution in the last 25 years has im pose?! burdens upon us beyond the ex pec ta: 3 OL s of our predecessors. The number of colored insane will in a few years exceed the white. While the races -have always occupied sepe rate brandings or wards yet we cannot but rtnt'mpM the time when a wider sepa ration on the present site than now ex ists w:ii ne deemed necessary. it has ever been the purpose of the board a: regents to protect the State from a]] unnecessary appropriations, asking only for funds to meet imme diate needs for both maintenance and extraordinary expenses, such as new buildings. Were it in our power we should much prefer to keep the insti tution within its present capacity. If we arc- to judge of the future by the demands of the past, however, this wili be impossible. The coming years will ono increase the need of accom modations for yet larger numbers of patien:.-. In deming with her charitable in stitutions :?S with other vital ques tions no progressive commonwealth should be satisfied with temporary makeshifts. These subjects demand j -a<>: only consideration for to-day but ; also provision fer to-morrow. We j mus: adjust our present plans to meet i so far as possible, future needs. lt is the opinion of the regents that our hospital has now reached a stage in Us Development that requires such mort?n, anon? as will provide means for ? better classification of its pa tients including isolation of those suf fering from communicable diseases. Henceforward it should be our pur pose in 'leterming upon building plans ro arrange separate cottages rather than add io the already too large cen tral sira.'tures. That is, the institu tion should henceforth be developed upon the "cottage plan" rather than j by additions to the ''conglomerate" j building that have been erected in the past. Among our present needs the most urgent ;^re accommodations for con valescent and quiet white men, for the excitea class cf white women, and for the consumptive among our colored patients: besides provision for sepa rating ai- epileptics from the insane, and a noir bakery. Th?s? subjects are minutely discussed in the superintend- ! en-fs report to which we respectfully ? refer you. ! In the matter of special legislation we woikd ask your excellency's .i+tv.n- j tion to tre better Development of the ! system^of county poor houses and the j con.??,!? ranon*of the matter of "settle? j * mem' by which it would be better es- j tablishf-d who may claim 'beneficiary ? support in the State Hospital. Our j 3aws ?could also be more specific in j rhe rs.-itter of dea.?ir>jr w.u.ii in^hnaMc ! and tn? vriminal insane. During the prevalence of an epidemic disease it is ?also recommended that for the pro- j section of the ?patients in the hospital i the right of quarantine against the in- \ fected territory be entrusted to the | governor, the chairman of the State j board of health and the president ol j the regents. Tue appropriations made at the last session of the general assembly have been judiciously and economically ex pended by the resident officers of the jiospiial under the direction of the re sents and the vouchers of such ex penditures have been submitted to the legislative committee appointed for that purpose. The institution has grown so large That the repairs made necessary by or dinary wear and tear have become a considerable drain upon our mainten ance fund. To keep up these repairs and make some of the improvements ?wt have recommended will require ?bom $10.000. We recognize that many needs aro pressing upon the State and under present conditions we would not ask Shit all the improvements herein sug- j gifted be made in one year, but wc earnest iv invite your excellency's at tention to the mos. urgent. JD soire of Drevailing bisher prices for food stuffs and other necessary supplies the board is pleased to report i practically the same per capita as last i year-1102.25. The treasurer's balance is also es- j sentially the same as last year. These j two facts serve to show that the es- j timaies upon which are pased our re- ! quests for appropriations for the hos- j p&al are made upon business princi ples and that under the direction of the board the resident officers make <everw effort to keep the expenses of the institution within the appropria tions. UDon the same basia as here tofore we ask for the expenses for the coming year: For maintenance.$100,000 For debt^on Wallace property &n? interest. 4,360 For repairs and permanent im provements. 10,000 For regents. 1,200 Requesting from your ex-eelcluna:C .Requesting from your excellency the iearty interest and co-operation in the welfare of the institution which it has received at your hands heretofore, we beg to remain. Very respectfully, B. W. TAYOR, M. D. ?-esident Beard of Regents, State .Hospital for the Insane. TBE NATIONAL LAW MAKERS. What Congress is Doing From Day to ?ay. The Senate. Seventeenth Day-Senator Hoar, ot Massachusetts, introduced a resolution asking the President to furnish the' Senate with all communications receiv ed from Aguinaldo or any one repre senting the Filipinos or any alleged au thority of the people there and our replies thereto; the proclamation sent to the Philippine people and the same as actually proclaimed by General Otis if in any way altered, together with in formation whether such change was approved, and the President is also asked to forward without delay all in formation he has of the forms of gov ernment, proclamations or conventions of those islands. Mr. Hoar sought im mediate consideration, but on objec tion went over. Senator Rawling. of Utah, has intro duced a resolution directing the Phil ippine committee of the House to re- ] port on what form of government other ; than the Spanish, existed in the Philip- ! pines prior to December 10, 1898, and to j what extent Spain had actual control j o! the islands. Also whether sovereign power can be justly and in accordance ; with international law claimed in the ; absence of power of control. Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, offered reso- | lution calling upon the Secretary of j War for complete information as to ; the transport service. It was adopted, j The Senate, at 4 o'clock adjourned. Eighteenth Day-The day was spent ' in hearing eulogies on the life and ! character of. vice-President Hobart, j Many Senators paid eloquent tribute's ! to his memory, after which the Senate j adjourned. Nineteenth Day.-A spirited and at times sensational debate was precipi tated in the Senate on the Philippine j question over resolutions of inquiry, j Mr. Pettigrew, of South Dakota, at tacked the administration's policy in the Philippines and also made some ! I startling charges against those who j ! were supporting the administration, j He declared that a systematic effort j was being made to prevent accurate in formation from reaching the people of ! the United States and that it was a political scheme to further the candi dacy of Mr. McKinley for re-nomina j ti on and re-election. Before adjourn ment, the Senate, after prolonged de bate, passed the bill conferring powers upon the directer of the census. Twentieth Day.-The Senate held a ; brief session, devoted principally to a ! discussion of the reply of England on the seizure of American flour. After j a short executive session the Senate adjourned. Twenty-First Dav.-The Senate com mittee on Privileges and Elections continued the investigation of charges against Senator Clark of Montana. M. L. Hewett, a miner who wa> in Helena : during the session of the Legislature j in 1899, said that Charley Clark had j asked him to see Senator Myers and offer him $10,000 for his vote for Mr. ; Clark for Senator. He had according- j ly taked with with Mr. Myers and tes tified that that gentleman had told him after first declining the proposi tion to say to Clark that if he was dis posed to do so he could put the $10,000 in the hands of Mr. Whiteside to be paid to him (Myers) in case he should vote fer Mr. Clark. Hewett said that the Senator's son stated that this ar rangement waa satisfactory and had afterward told him that the money for Myers had been given to Whiteside and j that his vote was assured. The witness said that he had seen i the Senator at his home at the Helena j Hotel a short time after the Whiteside j exposure and had asked him what he I proposed to do, when the Senator re plied: "There is only one thing to do and ? that is LO make the people bcliev that j the Daly gang have furni-hed the mon ey and have put up a conspiracy : against us." Concluding his testimony Mr. Hew ett said he had received no pay for his | services from Mr. Clark and r.o prom ise of any. He had been interested j with the Senator in a mining company j and preferred him to his opponents. Thc House. Eighteenth Day.-Miscellaneous bus iness of minor importance occupied the ; attention of the House until 10 o'clock after which an hour was devoted to ! eulogies upon the life and public, ser vices of the late Representative Green of Nebraska. Mr. Kitchen, of North ' Carolina was among the speakers. The House then adjourned. j Ninteen til Day-But little business of j importance was done by the House. ! The session was brief. Twentieth Day.-The House commit- J tee on inter-state and foreign com merce ordered a favorable report upon | the Hepburn bill for the construction of the Nicaraguan canal. The sesson of the House occupied just 20 min otes. j Twenty-First Day.-The session of the | House was of brief duration and noth ing of interest transpired to break the j monotony of the proceedings. - ? - So satisfactory has been the test j in a portion of Carroll County, Md., of the '.post-office on wheels" that l the ?department has decided to ex tend the system over the whole of j the county. As has been told, the idea is that of Edwin Shriver of j Westminster, Md., it being an appli- j cation of the raL'soad post-office sys- j tem. One wagon has been running ; for some months, and three more | ?ire to be added soon. At ce rta*'u points these delivery wagons will be met by smaller conveyances, which , will cover the country between the j most divergent points of the four j great arteries of the system. Within j the next few weeks sixtv-three fourth class post-offices in the county will be closed, and twenty-five star-route i contracts will be abrogated. The compensation of these post-masters amounts to $5,200 per year, and the j star-route contractors received $5,100. j Against this aggregate of $10,300 ; saved, the new system, as now organ- ! ized, will cost ?1*4,500, so tlxat until ! more post-offices are abolished and j star-routes wiped ont, the service will j cost the government $4,200 more than it is now paying these postmasters j and star-route contractors. But there will be more post-offices closed. The j new service will before the end of the j year cost far less than is now paid to postmasters and contractors. ________ Requirements for public-school j teachers in Alabama are very simple, j Applicants for third-grade certificates, j which allow the holder to teach for two years, are obliged to be examined in arithmetic only through fractions, and in geography only through the primary grade. - \ : V RAGE GLEANINGS. Things to Think About. You can not afford to do a thing poorly. You are more injured in shirking your work ar half-doing a joh than the man for whom you are work ing. Do not think that Mfe consists of dress and show. Remember that one's life is measured by the power that that individual has to make the world bet ter. Lay hold on something that will help you, and then use it to help somebody else. Show me a person who merely does as a duty what he is asked to do, and I will show you a person who is never in constant demand-a person who is not goin^ to be very valuable to hu manity. A person can not succeed in any thing without a good sound body-a body that is able to stand up under hardships, that is - able to endure. A great many of our young men. espe ciallyin the larger cities, undermine their constitutions, and to a great ex tent throw away their usefulness, be cause they do not understand ?how to take care of their bodies. Do not keep late hours. Have a time to go to bed, and enough self control to say to these who persuade you to dissipate: "My time for rest has come, and you must excuse me." Learn all you can. but learn to do something, or your learning will be .useless. You will gain a great deal, if in all the work that you perform, whether cleaning a lawn, laying off a furrow, building a ' chest, drawing a plan or studying a lesson, you are perfectly conscientious. If you choose these three lines on which to rest your lives -truthfulness, honesty, and conscien tious performance of duty, your future success is assured. A person must be able to earn his living before he can be of much bene fit to himself and the community in which he lives. If you are at the head of a stable or barn, plan day by day how best to pro vide for your horses and cows. When you make yourself master of these humble positions, you will find that the higher calls will rome to you. It is not very hard to find a perron who will speak good and kind words and be unselfish when speaking be fore an audience, but the way to test a person's real character is to notice his treatment of those wno come into daily contact with him how he speaks to his companions when his voice ? not heard by the public. It is a'good practice for a person to ;:et in rhe habit of making an exam ination ol' himself day by day. to see to what extent his thoughts have dwell cn those things which are high and to what oxrent he has permitted him self to yield to thc temptation cf being low. in his thoughts and imaginations, j There is no better test by which you can judge a person's culture, civiliza tion, or whatever you may call it. so quickly or so accurately, as by the way ii? which that person respects author ity and obeys orders. Tlie average boy usually has the idea thai, ii" he were just somewhere else. ! in another State or in contact with somebody else, he would succeed., for getting too ofrea to 'utilize the forces that are about him and in hand. Get hold of tin* spirit of helping somebody else, Seek every opportunity io make somebody happier and more comfortable. Xever get to the point where you will be ashamed to ask any body for information. The ignorant wi!) always be ignoran* ii* he fe.irs that by asking another for information he v. .'Ii display ignorance, farter once j display your ignorance of a certain subject, than alway:, know nothing of The boy who gce? to school with no ? special plan, who has no time to study this or that, who has no regular hour for* eating and sleeping, you will find thal very scon that student will be l?.ft behind. No matter how brilliant cr active a mind he has. succe.-s can only come by planning work. 1 have often thought, specially when traveling from city to city through r?ie North, what a good thing it would be to establish a chair in some streng university for the art of scrubbing. Yes. the common, homely art of scrub bing. Seldom do we see clean floors; the art seems to have passed away. If you want to put yourself in de- j mand, make up your mind that you I are going to give as few excuses as j possible. If you are milking cows and feel that you know all that there is to be j known abeu: it, you have simply reach- ? ed the point where you are useless and f unfitted for the work. i It is not very hard to find people ; who will thoroughly clean a room that i is going to be occupied, or wash a dish that is to be handled by strangers, but it is a hard thing to find a person who will do a thing right when the eyes of ? the world is not likely to rest upon whatever is done. The cleaning of ; rooms has a great deal to do with for ming one's character.-Booker T. Wash ington. We should not permit our grievance 10 overshadow our opportunities. ! _,_ ! f Which Is Correct? Two men were holding a heated ar gument as to the correct pronunciation of the word "either." After much dis- ? cussion they agreed to seek the opin ion of an Irishman who was present. | "T say it should be pronounced ee- j ther," said the first. "And I contend that it should be i-tiaer," argued the j second. "Now, Pat. which is it?" "It's nay-ther," was Pat's bland reply. A Miss ts As Good as a Mile.
