We, the grand jury, respectfully ;
b?g leave to report that the county
home was visited as provided by law j mittee was appointed to purchase
by the following members thereof, . the gift. It was composed of Jo
viz: LH Moose. Georere H Miller. ' eepbus Daniel. E J Hale, and W
Martin F Barrier and Jonas A Shoe,
as a committee appointed by the
foreman. We ilnd that there are,and on Thursday, July 6th, Mr.
now 26 inmates at the home. They j aad Mrs. Sherrill were the happy
arc well cared tor; have plenty of
good wholesome food; are well
clothed and occunv houses and
rooms clean and comfortable. The
farm attached to the home aeems S
tilled to its financial advantage. 'The
people of the county are to be con
gratulated upon having such a re
treat for those driven by neces?ity
to seek its shelter
The gr;md jury also visited the.
jail, and find its condition fairly
good, with the exception of plaster
ing overhead in the dining room,
which needs the immediate attention
of the county commissioners, as the
safety of the family of the jailer is
in jeopardy iherefrom.
We find the sewerage pipes are in
bad order, leaking into two rooms.
The water pipes carrying water into
the jail are in bad condition, also
the roof of the1 front porch is leak
ing badly andjdamaging the build
ing. The health of the prisoners is
good and their treatment humane.
We also ask your honor to call the
attention of the county commission
ers to the necessity of increasing the
means of ventilating the courtroom,
that in the original design of the
room a way was provided for yen
tilating the 100m through' the cil.
ing and that this means should be
adopted as originally intended.
The grand jury have every reason
to believe that the offices of the
Clerk of this court, .Register of
Deeds and Sheriff are kept in a busU
ness-like manner, and to the satis
faction of all citizens having busi
ness with them,
The grand jury desire Your Honor
to call the attention of the county
commisa;oner8 to the fact that the
court room and the approaches there
to are not kept in as clean a condi
tion as is necessary for the comfort
and health of those of onr citizens
in attendance upon our court3. We
would suggest new matting for the
floors and that either immediately
before or after each court the court
