'warn vou to beware of such people
who seek to profit, through stealing

these are given what is necessary tor
them to have to care for the unfor

then the State institutions tor higher

The State Hospital at Morsarttoh
Was established about za years ago
and has cost the State for lands,
(600 acres in number), buildings and
all necessaries such as heating plant,
water supply, furnishings, fco, dec,
not inoludino maintenance, of course,
about 8700,000. The property
though is 'worth much more than
that to day estimated as It is at
about one and one-half million Jol
lars, the enhanced value heing large
ly due to ;he labor of the patients
The main buildings, and there are
three others an close together, is
6aid to be a mile or more around,
and in these buildings together With
the "colonies," of which I will say a
word later, they have in round num
bers, beds for 1,000 patients. There
are estimated to be 1421 insane per
sons in the Western District which
extends eastward to a point includ
ing Orange county. This shows the
need of an inurease of about 400
beds at Morganton, aud even a
larger increase is needed in the
Eastern District, owing to the tact
that there are accommodations at
tialeioh for only about 400 patients.
It is estimated that about 20 per
cent oi the patients recover, it is a
further interesting taut that no pa
tient is confined or comi elled to
wear what is commonly known an
i be straight jacket, but all are at
lowed the freedom of the ward
Eighty per cent work and thus con
tribute to their own support. They
have hee what is known as the
"colony system'' which is the build
tng of some houses about a mile
from the main plant, and in these
buildings are placed sou
quiet and not dangerous patients,
tua.y of whom were farme.s, and
limy can lead here much the same
lite that was theirs before their
minds became affected.
It might be interesting further
more to our people to know that
oar county of Orange according to
the census of 1900 having within its
borders 9,429 white persons, and as
you of course understand I am
speaking only of white people
throughout this article, bad about 15
