We also recommend a system of sew age and water closets or toilets. There should aiso be furnished com fortable chairs for the jury rooms and rest rooms for witnesses placed under the rule and required to remain out of the court room during the trial of a case. As requeued, we, in a body visited the new County Home for the poor and found the same located about one mile southeast of the court hoiue in an ideal location with splendid drain age and perfectly sanitary. The beds and bedding new and clean, good water, the inmates perfectly satisfied with the care and attentim of their superintendent, Mr. Oscar Morris, and we believe and assert that said home is a credit to the taxpayers of Morgan county and an honor to the officers who erected same. We would fur ther suggests that if the taxpayers of the county will visit the home, there will not be so much unjust criticism ot it and of the purchase of the land upon which it is erected and the construction of the building.
