The management of our coun.y asy lum for the chronic insane hat been above criticism for so long that the peo ple of the county are disposed to think all others are equally well governed. Asa matter of fact, Wisconsin's system of caring for this class of unfortunates in institutions generally separate from the poorhouses is recognized as one of the best in the country. But some of the county lioards, in the effort to save ex pense, have permitted their institutions to deteriorate and the patients to be without proper attendance. The State Board of Com-ol has adopted new rules governing the management of the county asylum, which are thought sufficient to prevent any further laxness. President W. P. Lyon of the State Board says that the new rules are the result of a long and careful investiga tion of the management of county asy lums, which in a number of instances, was not found what it should be. The rela tives of the 8,500 inmates of county insane asylums and the public generally will be interested in the proposed reforms. If the county authorities ignore the new rules. Judge Lyon said, the State Board would enforce them. The board has authority to withhold state aid from asylums governed by refractory officials. The circular containing the new and revised rules will be sent out in a few days to the authorities in the various counties. The rules provide; 1. Asylum physicians should not be selected and contracts for the medical care of the insane awarded upon con.- petitive bids. The trustees should ap point some competent physician and fix his salary. The selection should lie made with the care and consideration that might reasonably lie expected in the selection of a family physician. The asylum physician should visit the asylum at least twice a week. At each visit he is expected in addition to attending to the sick inmates to examine the sanitary condition of the asylum and grounds and the condition of the patients, their health, diet, clothing and cleanliness, the work required of them and any other condition affecting their welfare and comfort. He will advise and direct the superintendent as to which of the pa tients should be required to lalior and the kinds and amount of work each working patient is able to perform. At each visit to the asylum the physician shall enter in a book, furnished by the superintendent, the date of his visit, the name, age and malady of each patient treated by him, the treatment prescrib ed. and the name of each patient he has advised the superintendent should not be required to labor. At least once in each month the physician shall also enter in said book statements of the sanitary condition of the institution, and the general condition of the patients in respect to the matters herein mentioned. He is invited to enter therein any sug gestions he may think proper to make for the improvement of the institution and the promotion of the welfare of the inmates. 2. Each county asylum shall have upon its staff of employes ,a female night attendant who shall be constantly on duty during each night in the apart ments occupied by the female inmates. Such attendant shall make a daily re port to the superintendent. 8. The trustees of each county asy lum are required to employ, and keep on duty a competent night watchman at their institution through each night dur ing the whole year. 4. Regulations are made for ascer taining the amounts chargeable for clothing furnished by the trustees of any county asylum to the inmates there of, a portion whose maintenance is chargeable to counties other than that in which such asylum is situated, or wholly to the state, pursuant section 604f, R. S. 5. If the county asylum or the county jxior house are under the same manage ment, the salaries and wages of all offi cers and employees whose duties are common in both institutions should lie apjxirtioned to such institutions on the basis of the average population of each. The monthly report of wages and salaries should lie made, and the per capita cost of maintenance in the an nual report should be computed, on this basis. There shall also be kept an ac count of all the products of the asylum farm used or consumed in the asylum, or disposed of and the proceeds so used. The fair market value thereof, or the money received for the same and so used in each year, shall be deducted from the annual interest at 4 per cent, on the cost of the asylum plant and equipment if there be a poorhouse under the same management. The balance represents the net annual interest on the investment at 4 per cent. This bal ance should be included in the current expense account of the asylum upon which the per capita cost of mainten ance is computed. 6. Section 601. R. S., provides that every female over 10 years of age com mitted to any hospital or asylum for the insane shall be accompanied by a competent female. This board haslieen astonished to learn that this most salu tary law. demanded by common de cency for the protection of helpless in sane women from possible outrage or neglect, has recently been disregarded in two instances, in each of which an insane woman was brought to the hos pital, in one case by a sheriff alone, and in the other by the sheriff and a male assistant only.

There is a very large tract of land bounded by New York Avenue, North 11th St.. Huron St. and Harris St., practically three extra large blocks in one, that should be subdivided by at least one or two streets running through. As it is all the houses on the northern edge of thq tract are difficult of access, having to be reached around either the eastern or western end. Both 12th and 18th streets could lie run through, which would make an easier access and would at the same time make saleable a large number of lots that are now without any street frontage. The correspondents of The Pilot have become very lax about sending in items of news. Some have neglected to send anything at all. and others get" their matter in too late in the - week for inser tion. They are all urged to write a week ly letter, even though it lx- -hurt, and to send it in so that it will reach this office by Tuesday night at the latest. NOTES FROM COOPERSTOWN.
