Letter From Bloominjton, Ind.
I have received so much pleasure
from the weekly visit of The Cour
ier that I feel it would be ungracious
iu me to go longer without saying a
word in its favor.
The Courier is a nice, live paper,
and, best of all, its face is familiar.
hen I get sight of its neat wrapper
I always think here is a message from
home. The very suggestion it briug6
is home-like nnd friendly. It seems
like a little white-winged bird mak
ing its way through the mountains
every week to pour into my ears every
item of interest it can gather lrom
th county ot ItHiidolph and the
St..te of North Carolin-, And every
hkur it bring is inte eeting. I read
its every line even t the local ad
vertisements. If I eli Mild try to say
all I feel like saying ii iu behalf it
would cover pages.
I often wonder how those who
have the management of The Coureir
contrive to make its every department
so full and complete, and how they
get up such an interesting paper every
week without a single failure. The
management will smile and think

Grand Jury Report at March Term
of Randolph Superior Court,
North Carolina. Randolph Co.,
March Term Superior Court
To Hon. Tims. A. McNeill, Judgt
We. the Grand Jurors, pre.-vnt tin1
We have, bv committee, visited the
Count-v Home" und find i!4 inmates,
of which four are crazy people and
one has epileptic tits. The beds.
bedclothes and rooms arc all k'Mit iu
good order mid the inmates all
that theV are supplied with good
wholesome food and are neat and
cleun. We re.'oinmcud that the
broken window-panes be replaced
with new glass and that the chimney
to the west liuiiding ne repaireu. ive
recommend the building of a church
or chapel in which to hold religious
exercises and that the minister. of
the various evangelical denomina
tions who preach in the community,
be requested by the steward to hold
religious services at the County
Home. Wo further recommend thai
a sick room, or rooms, be built apart
from the other buildings. V e fur
ther recommend that more fruit
trees be planted and those now ou
the place pruned and careiuuy wow
ed after. We find nothing growing
on the premises except rye, und we
recommend that vogctanies oi nil
kinds bo raised in sufficient quanti
ties to supply nil the inmates while
the vegetables nro in season. We
recommend this because the cleared
land appears to be well adapted to
gardening and raising vegetables, nnd
we find a number of inmates who
could do light work. We further
recommend tint a well bound ledger
of suitable size be purchased in which
to record the names and address uud
dates of admission of each inmate,
his or her age, and date of discharge,
or death and place ot ' ounai, aim
date of death.
We have examii.ed the offices of
the Superior Court Clerk nnd the
Register of Deeds and found these
offices, so far as we could ascertain,
well kept. The records are milt and
systematically kept, and the offices
in as good condition as the limited
space which they occupy will allow.
The various rooms of the Court
House are j-roperly kept.
We have visited the jail und find
that the prisoners ure provided with
wholesome food and the jail premises
are as well kept as could be expected
considering the size und arrangement
We uuauiniously recommend that
a new Court House be built at us
early day as it is convenient and that
arrangments can be made to meet
the financial obligations for such
building by the levy of u special tax
if necessaiy to pay for the erection of
the same. After a careful examina
tion of the old Court House it is our
opinion that it will be exceedingly
peusive to enlarge the old court
House or to erect vaults in it nnd
that with a little more expenditure a
largo uud commodious Court House
can be built, and further, that vaults
cannot bo built in the old Court
House-without enlarging the build
ing. V o tlierelore recommend ine
building ol a new one.
We further report, that the county
is badly iu need of a new jail, as the
old jail is a wooden structure and
jreatly decayed iu places, and is so
ir ranged that it cannot lie made com
fortable, and is not large enough, and
we make the same recommendation
as to the jail as we do to the Court
We further report that wo have
by committee visited tho convict
force and find that there are 21 con
victs at woik on the public roads,
and they aie carefully looked after
and provided for and receive good
wholesome lood. w e hud nine mules
well cared for and in good condition,
some of the mules being the best we
have ever seen. The tools and ma
chinery seem to be wcB adapted to
road building. vc have examined
some of the work and are well pleas-
I with it. We especially commend
the superintendent, Mr. II. H. Ken
nedy, lor Ins humane treatment ot
the convicts and the economy which
we arc convinced he has used under
the direction of a wise and prudent
Board of County ( onimisioners.
The roads iu the county are being
greatly improved by the working of
the convicts on the public roads, and
we. recommend that the township su
pervisors look more carefully after
the overseers and see that tiny do
their duty, r'roin the deplora'ole
condition of the public roads wo are
led lo believe that the supervisors
and ovcrsicrs are nJ doing their
doing, but the Grand Jury is power
less to remedy the evil, as the failure
to work on tho public road is an
offense wholly within the jurisdiction
of the justices of the peace for six
mouths alter theottense is committed.
We therefore recommend that the
county commissioners gives iioMce to
the supervisors and oversn-rs ot t he
county to put their roads in good
condition as required by law.
We find in the "jail three insane
persons, two of whom are women,
and we earnestly recommend that
great effort be made to get these un
fortunate people into the State Hos
pital for Insane, esjiecially the wom
en. If this cannot be done we rec
ommend that u place be provided for
them in the (.ouiilv Homo.
Before closing, w e de. ire to express
our thanks to T. W. Andrews, officer
of the grand jury, for tho kind and
faithful services rendered and to
Wm. C.JIaiiMiier, solicitor, and Thos.
A. McNeill, judge, presiding, for
courtesies shown us.
