The Poor Farm.'OIanafrcment, Etc.
Ed. Fnen Pbeso: As I havo boon fre-
quently interrogated concerning tho poor
form, its location and management, and as
there appours to bo some oomraotion on tho
subject, I oak permission to make a few
utatemonts through your papor that may be
of some intoroBt to tho Inquiring public.
Said farm is situated on tho Rio Blauoo
and contains about CO acres, about 10 acres
in cultivation ;'one box dwelling honso, one
hor timisa with two rooms, about 12x14
square eaoh, with open partitions botwoen
and no collings. One room is oJoupied by
Miss Jenuio Eicholborgor, who Is periodi
cal Insane ; tho othor roopj is used oomo
timos for indigents, somotiraos for Invalids
and Idiots, and sometimes for all together,
Tho concern has been managed alternately
by Henry Collins, Goo. Turner, Hiram
Gray,- Win. Thompson, Wm. Mitchell, Jas.
Wilson and K. iladdox. Mr. Wallace is
the present managor.
Tho management has boon lot to tho saw
parties on terms ranging froin'four to sevon
dollars por month eompons'ition, inolinliug
tho uso of tho farm, ront free.
As to the management of tho paupers,
it has bean varied as tho knopors wra vari
ed, and I can say of the inanagors that they
were good noighbors and I bohovo, treated
tho Inmates as woll us thoy were ablo. 1
will hero state what Mr. Thompson said
concerning the treatmont of thorn.
He kept the pluco two yoars, and said lie
was Romotimos so. hard ruu for somotbing
to eat that they used corn bread made from
unsifted moal, using the bran freqnoutly
on account of failure in orops, and not
boiug romuueratod sufficiently by the
oounty. Consequently it went hard
with tho sick, and no wonder they com
plained considerably, Some of thorn told
me thoy could not live so near mies Jennie,
her ocreams aud yells were too much for
them to stand.
Ab for the treatment of the paupers under
the difforent administrators I will not go
into muoh detail at present. The question
is frequently asked me why tho county docs
not or is not able to take better care caro of
her paupers, and how It is possible for Mies
Jennie to survive the hard winters in a com
open house without any means of warming
it. I have also often hear it asked if they
put all the paupers sick and woll, blaok and
white together In that one muo room r
Whon thoy are siok do thoy havo a nurse ?
1 have heard some of the keepers say they
did not oomo there to run a lunatic asylum
and a hospital, and not could take all the
care of thorn they needed and attend to the
form. W". B- Cbookbb.

To the Epitob Fbeb Thess:
It is expeoted that the city authorities will
make liboral appropriations for placing the
drive from the town to Chautauqua grounds
in first class condition, but it is incumbent
upon our oitizons to do something also, that
we may monifost our mterout in tnis enier-
prise "of our prayers." ilucn aepenas up-
onl the success of tho coming session of tho
Chautauqua in fixing it as a permanent San
Marcos institution, and it behooves us all to
bo np aud doing to assist tho management
and thereby manifest our faith aua interest
In the Summer Institute. A Bmall ouu-iy
of money under judicious direction would so
improve "the landing" near the entranco
gato on the hill, that the difficulties and
dangers to vehicles m turning ncea exist no
more. Let us go to work the season U as
ligbtfuily propitious for evening out door
