The changeable weather of Spring is
directly responsible for the prevalence

As a result, F. S. Duffy has had a
i larger sale for Hyomei the past week
than ever before in the years that he
has hsndled this reliable treatment for
1 the cure of catarrh.
If there fa a single catarrhal germ In
the system, Hyoroel will search it out
and absolutely destroy it, completely
eradicating the trouble. The remedy
has made so many cures among F. S
Duffy's customers that he offers to pay
for it himself if it doe not benefit even
the worse case of catarrh.
The complete outfit costs but $1., con
sistinir of an inhaler, medicine dropper.

ties of Hyomei can be obtained for 50

of Grand Jury,' April - Term,
Hon. B. F, Long Judge presiding.
We your jury respectfully report as
follows, viz: There liave been 102 bills
presented to our body, i V .
63 were found true bills, 23 were
found not true bills, 7 were submitted
by the solicitor, 7 were not artod on
for want of witnessess. W beg to re
port that the clerk of the court reports
to us that few guardians have, failed to
make their reports, which he will ex
plain to your Honor.
A committee was appointed to ex
amine the county home, and report as
follows, viz t The home was found in
good condition, and all inmates prop
erly cared for. It is recommended that
a ' suitable cook house be provided at
once tor the home, as it is much needed.
We beg to state that this recommen
dation has been made several times,
but has never been acted upon, and we
earnestly request that your honor will
direct action to be taken at once. '
There are twenty inmates which in
cludes the keeper and the cook, of,
these there are two white females, one
of whom is insane. IWe think that she
should be removed t the' asylum for
proper treatment. There are eleven
colored female Inmates one of whom 's '
blind. ' ' ' ,

iraie tne jail reported as follows, vis :;

sent to the 'asylum at once, as she

proper place for her. The rest of the X
prisoners are young colored males. 1
in regard to the security of tne pail, J

be very insecure, as we have verv
carefully inspected tha iron cells, also
tne oars ot the various windows, v
We are informed that there have
been several jail deliveries made dur
ing the past year, and that the only im
plement used was a piece of 2x4 scant
ing with which the prisoners prised
open the bars to the cells and windows.
Wo recommend that steel eells be
placed in the jail which are locked by
a lever, ana mat tne pars oi . tne win
dows be" removed and be replaced by
steel bars properly set into the walls of
tne uu. . .. 1 ' . ,.
we hnd upon mvesturation that
the floors of the jail and cells re in j
bad condition, and should be fixed at j
once. We further find that a hose ia
used to wash up the floors of the jail,
and that the water from tame must be
he bailed up and thrown out of the win-
dows. - ' ' .., : I
We recommend that a (4) inch sewer
be placed in the corner of the jail for.
carrying off this water.' 1 ! I
the committee appointed to investi
gate the court house and premises beg
to report as follows, viz : -
we nave examined the interior of the
court house, and find that ft should be '
oainted throughout the various offices
in the building do not compare favora-1
bly with the exterior of the . building. !
and we thinx that every omce, also all
tne wans snouid ne given tnorough
painting. . We also find that the ceiling
in the court room is in need of repair,
and also should be painted, and we re
commend that it should be done as soon
as possible. . -. .
Upon examination of the vaults in
the omce of the Clerk of the Court,
and ' the Register of Deeds, we find
there a great amount of wood work,.
We think the records of thecountv
much too valuable to be thus subjected
to danger from fire, and we earnestly
recommend that all this wood work be
replaced by the latest improved steel
fittings. t ; ..
We learn that this recommendation
has. been made several times, and has
never been acted upon, ana we trust
that your Honor will direct action to be
ta en at once. ,
We think that suitable office furni
ture should be provided for the office
of the clerk and sheriff as that which is
used at present is not at all in keep
ing with what should be expected in
the office of county officials in a com
munity of this size.
We also recommend that a eloset be
placed in the upper story of the build
inar for the use of the court officials.
We find upon investigation that the
closet used bv the public, in the yard, is
entirely msutlicient-at we nndthat at
present both white and colored males
and females aie usinsr the same closet
We think this condition should not
exist, and immediate action should be
taken to provide suitable closets, and
we trust that your Honor will so direct

and Sherirtr and beg to report that we
find same all in good condition and well
keot We also recommend that the en
tire court house and jail should be
heated bv steam, as we think that it
will be much more economical and add
much to the safety of both jail and
court house, and to the comfort of the
public, and especially to the court offi
cials. ,
We think that a heater should be
placed under the building, and connect-
