I lie Insane Asylum and health
resort ,
owner j )rs. Mitchell A: Mussigbrod, lo- j
cated at Warm Springs is an institution
not as well known throughout Montana as
it should be from its established high
character and excellent general manage
ment.
Dr. Mussigbrod conducted us through
the different wards of the Asylum in
which one hundred and fifteen patients are
cared for at present. There is little of the
inviting in inspecting insane people who j
arc afflicted with di lièrent types of insanity. !
Some are mildly insane and others violent |
ami profane, while the dirty habits of
others is sickening. In all the wards
cleanliness of the most exacting kind was
noticed. The buildings used for the in
sane and invalid guests are numerous. A
large, two-story frame building is used for
violent and dirty patients, which has it
capacity to accommodate thirty-four pa
tients. Another two-story frame has a
capacity to accommodate twenty-four pa
tients, with the ground floor only used as
as a large sitting-room. A new two-storv
brick, ju-t completed, will hold 2b patients,
ami it is also provided with six new cells
A two-story log house is used for feeble
and sick insane people. A large two-storv
brick is used as the convalescent ward, it
is a tine building, well furnished up-stairs
and down-stairs, and the patients in this
building are under no restraint. In the
female ward nineteen woman are under the
charge of Matron Mrs. W. 11. White, and
constant nurse Mrs. Brown. In this
ward comfort and cleanliness were noticed,
and also some of the patients were verv
violent at times in their language and be
havior. In the wards occupied by the
male patients Warden Erwie and assistants
Burns, Johnson and Flynn, have their
hands full in controlling the insane men
under their charge. A large swimming
tank is provided for the insane. The man
agement of the Asylum, in its different
departments, or wards, is under the per
sonal supervision of Dr. Mussigbrod,
whose extensive experience in handling
the insane enables him to skillfully control
the most violent patients, and likewise
those who are simple monomaniacs on
some peculiar mania.
As a health resort for invalid guests the
Springs are becoming wider know every
year, and the number ot persons seeking
relief is growing proportionately greater.
The hotel accommodations are ample and
excellent. A two-story building is hand
somely furnished for the accommodations
of visiting guests, it contains fourteen
nicely furnished rooms, with large parlors
up stairs and on the ground floor. The
The old hotel building is used by Dr. Mus
sigbrod as a private residence, office, drug
store, dining hall, and the up stairs, of
seven commodious rooms, is for guests
and employes of the institution.
The facilities for bathing are good. The
large swimming tank, lor guests, is 2S by
So feet, it is carpeted and well furnished,
and provided with heaters tor cold weather
Four single hath rooms are provided with
iron tubs, lined with porcelain. Invalids
drink freely of the hot mineral water
Eight springs of boiling water are on the
premises, and you can take your choice in
drinking the water at temperatures rang
ing from 115 degiees to 194 degrees. Hot
water, when the thermometer registers </>
degrees iu the shade, dont drink well at
first, but after a few attempts, patients like it
and drink it with ease by the gla*s full
with a» much relish as they would wine,
whisky or lemonade. This mineral water
is charged with iron, soda, magnesia, and a
trace of arsenic.
Provisions are made to quickly extin
guisli any fires that may break out in the
many buildings scattered over the grounds.
A large force pump is in position, with Loo
feet of hose attached, receiving a supply of
water from a tank holding 26,00o gallons
of water. in addition each building is
supplied with Babcock fire extinguishers
The buildings are not built close together,
and fire can not easily cacth from one
building to another. It would appear that
the guards against fire are sufficient, and
that there is little danger that the insane
inmates will run the chances of perishing
jn flames.
The As vluin'grounds embrace an area
of 1,060 acres under fence. The grounds
are used to a great extent for pasturage
and hav. but all the vegetables ter the ho
tel and'Asvlutn are raised on the premises.
Manv other buildings are located conven
iently a store house for supplies for the
Asvlutn, an ice house of too tons capac
ity' carpenter shop, tool house, .arge
stables, carriage and wagon sheds, granary,
gardener's ltou.se, slaughter house, etc
On the Mound, which is 44 ieet high, there
is a pavilion, in the center of which is a
bubbling hot spring constantly boding up.

CROP CONDITIONS.
Cotton, Torn. Wheat and Oats a* .1 fleeted
tty the Weather.
The July report of the agricultural
bureau says: The average condition on
July ist of winter wheat lias declined from
94-7 to 91.2, and o.' spring wheat from 96 to
93- The average condition of cotton de
dined (rom S7.7 to S6. The average of
corn ha* very slightly declined in the tnid
die states, and Maryland, Virginia and
South Carolina, with some increase in
other states of the South, which the largest
west of the Mississippi, in the Ohio val
ley the acreage is nearly the same as in
1SS5. West of the Missisippi the increase
is heavy—in Kansas 20 per cent., Nebras
ka 10, Dakota 50. The total increase is
31 '/2 or about two and a half million acres.
Corn is late on the Atlantic coast from wet
weather and cold nights, and in manv
places the seed rotted and replanting be
came necessary. Instances are reported
ot planting three times, yet there is gener
ally a lair standard and the crop is grow
ing and healthy and with seasonable July
weather will make a full yield. It has
suflered quite as much on the Gulf coast,
where wot areas are still more unpromis
ing. Red lands generally hear vigorous
growth, wiiile in gray soils and bottoms
the plants are yellow and spindling. Some
ot the areas have already been abandoned
in some parts of Texas it lias been dry, but
the abundant recent rains will suffice for a
good crop in the eastern and central coun
ties. Arkansas shows a high condition,
but Tennessee reports injury from low
temperature and excessive rains. The
great corn belt of the west reports medium
to high condition. The condition is grow
ing better from Ohio to Kansas. The
Missouri valley averages better than the
Ohio valley and lake regions. There is a
full stand in Missouri, vigorous and even
growth, and ten days earlier than last year
Kansas returns .ire equally favorable. In
sect injuries have nowhere been serious.
The chinch hug is now threatening some
localities in the west. The general aver
age is 95 against 94 last year and 96 in
1SS4. The condition of spring wheat ha
declined from yS in June to S3 in conse
quence of high temperature, drying winds
and lack of rain. In the principal states
tiie decline lias been as follows: Wiscon
sin from 97 to 75; Minnesota, 97 to S3;
Iowa, too to 90; Nebraska, 97 to S3, and
Dakota from yy to S5.
The condition of oat* average Sy a de
cline of 7 per cent. Rye maintains its posi
tion, averaging yr. The average of barley
is yo.
LAHtiE LOCKOUT.
TIin-i- TIiiiiishikI Thu net'* 11111I Currier* <•«
Oil x Big strike.
A lockout in the tanneries and curl ing
shop* at Peabody and Salem, Mass., was
fully inaugurated Tuesday morning in ac
cordance with the vote of the Knights of
Labor at the meeting Monday evening.
The men refused to go to work in the
shops where a notice of the executive
committee had been posted This affects
not only tanner*, but likewise the curriers.
There are liftv-four tanneries and they em
ploy on an average two hundred tanners.
The tanners' strike includes journeymen,
teamsters and others. There are only
three place* a* far a* known where the no
tice was not posted. The men all went to
tiie shop* in the morning. ■ Tiie bosses
were all present in the shop* where they
had been in the habit of beginning work at
6 o'clock. They were refused admission,
and in the others they found notices post
ed and left. The result is that over 3,000
men are now idle. Both sides are firm.
»■CYCLE RECORD BEATEN.
Howe Lower» the Best Time ill the Pres
eure ul a Vast Cruwtl.
Over 5,000 people attended tiie third
Summer meeting of the Lynn, Mass., Bi
cycle association on the 12 th inst. Hosts
of bicyclists were present, including nearly
all the record breakers. Tiie most inter
esting race was ti e five-mile professional
between W. A. Woodside and R. A.
Neilson, of Boston, Woodside winning in
15:001-4, and the final event was an at
tempt of W. A. Rowe to lower tiie ten
mile world's record, 28:37 4-5, made by
himself at Springfield last fall, as well as
all the intermediate records from four
miles up to ten. He succeeded in every
attempt. During his ride the enthusiasm
01 the crowd grew intense, and tremen
dous cheers greeted every additional record
broken. His first mile was made in 2
minutes and 44 seconds: five miles in 13
minutes 57 2-5 seconds: ten miles 2S min
utes 32-5 seconds.
PRIMROSE IN PRISON.
Tho salvation Army Captain Belli ml flit
Bain tor Ttlganiv.
A New Philadelpia, O., dispatch of July
10th says: Capt. Henry Primrose, leader
of the Salvation army here, who was ar
rested for bigamy on Saturday was bound
over to the court in the sum of $1,000.
He was unable to procure bail and was
sent to the Steubenville jail. It was de
veloped that Capt. Primrose was thrice
married and hud he remained here ten dav*
longer he would doubtless had his fourth
wife. He had won the affections of an
excellent innocent lass of iS here, and the
lay, it is said, had been set for the mar
riage. This young lady was a nightly at
tendant at the salvation meetings, and
thought, as many others did, that lie was a
single man. Capt. Primrose was a dash
ing young fellow. He could sing louder,
pray more fervently, and shout halleluiah
with such genuine enthusiasm as to stir
up the feelings of the soldiers, and engraft
himself into their good graces as a model
captain. At Steubenville, east of here, he
preached in his own original style, and
among his hearers was a beautiful girl,
Jennie Stiers. She loved dearly to hear
the gallant young soldier sing and pray,
and her innocent heart went to him in its
entirety. Capt. Primrose was her model
of everything that was good and true, and
in his presence she felt she was filled with
good. The young officer proposed to Jen
nie and they were married at the Methodist
Episcopal parsonage by Rev. Mr. Hollings
head. Matters went smoothly for a tew
weeks, when one day ere the honeymoon
was over, tiie bride, on reading a Salva
tion army cry, happened to notice the
name of a Mrs. Primrose, of Wilmington,
Del. The thought struck Iter that her
husband might have anotlter wife, and she
sat down and wrote to the Mrs. Primrose
at Wilmington, making, inquiry if she was
related to Henry Primrose. The crushing
reply came quickly back that she was his
lawful wife. It subsequently developed
that another wife of his had died at Har
risburg, Pa. On consulting with the
authorities she concluded to prosecute
Primrose to tiie full extent of the law.
On her complaint a warrant was sworn
out and he was arrested here while doing
sonic work at tiie rolling mill. He does
not deny the much marrying business, but
defends himself witli the statement that
his Wilmington wife had procured a di
vorce. 1 lis statements being so contradic
tory he was held for trial at tire common
pleas court. This wing of the army lia*
been completely broken up since the affair
came to light.
BEECHER BANQUETED.

ed with Louis Riel iu tiie Northwest re
bellion, died suddenly at Crow Foot camp.
