The care of the insane and sick in
mates of the Lancaster county hospital
and asylum is a responsibility that can
be measured only by the number of pa
tients in these institutions, the wide di
versity of their maladies, and the delicate
and peculiar nature of most of them. It
would seem that the unfortunates in
these asylums are entitled te attention
from the highest degree of medical skill,
if their purpose is te be at all realized.
That they must fail te receive this under
the present system of medical attend
ance none have better opportunity te sat
isfy themselves than the attendants
themselves. Four physicians are elected
annually te attend these institutions;
each one taking jthe exclusive practice
therefer three months, and receiving the
compensation of $75 for the time which
he spares from his regular practice,
te devote te the hundreds who "need his
attention. These physicians are gener
ally selectcdjmd quite as often removed
for pel itical considerations. Perforce they
have net the interest in nor the induce
ment te inquire into the nature of
chronic cases, nor the time te give the
necessary attention te acute sufferers
which they merit. The proper treatment
of the insane is a subject of the
profoundest medical skill. It con
stitutes a siccialty in which a life
time of study may be devoted
and scarcely the simplest case can be
well diagnosed by a three months' knowl
edge of it. Every consideration for the
suffering inmates demands that there
should be a resident physician at these
institutions. The best of doctors will
net pretend te say that the daily visit of
a physician, who is changed four times a
year, is a sufficient prevision for the hos
pital ami asylum, patients, and the
wonder of it is that no grand jury has
ever had its attention called te this mat
ter, nor reported upon it. The increased
cost of an ellicient resident physician
would Ite but a trille ever the present
cost of medical attendance, if indeed the
office of superintendent inight'iiet lie in
cluded in the person of a capable physi
cian, te the general saving of expense and
increase of efficiency in the manage
ment. i'l'r.MC interest is mpidly focusing in
the direction of the Pine Tree state,
where seen will be decided a desperate
contest, and where Republican defeat
will place beyond pcradventure the entire
destruction of that party in November.
The coalition that lias been effected be
twecn the varied elements opjiesed te
Republican misrule,' and embracing the
entire Democratic vote, the Greenback
strength, and a large and respectable por
tion of the Republican party, render the
success of the Republican candidates ex
ceedingly problematical at best. The
coalition or Fusion candidate for gover
nor, Gen. Plaistcd, is a gentleman of
ability and great popularity, whose strong
personal following is certain te make
serious inroads upon the strength
of the dominant party. Mr. Elaine's
apprehension of the result of the
struggle upon his native, heath is clearly
indicated by some recent correspondence
in which the .senator's sarcastic allusions
te the. " dress parade" which the Repub
lican chairman is conducting in Ver
mont, and at ether points where there is
really no light, are net calculated te im
prove the relations between himself and
Air. Jewell, nor te cause the latter te
loosen the party purse-strings. On the
whole "the Maine chance" is a geed
one. The election occurs two weeks
from te-morrow, and the efliccrs te be
elected include a governor, state efliccrs,
and a Legislature which will cheese a suc
cessor te United States Senater Hamlin,
whose declared purpose te retire from
public life at the close of his present term
is received with a measure of incredulity
in some well-informed quarters. Mr.
Hamlin is sly devilish sly.

Let us take an example. The Nine
teenth congressional district of Ohie has
been represented for twelve years by
James A. Garfield. He is one of the ablest
and most premising members of Congress.
He is a geed man of uncommon culture, a
graduate of a Eastern college, was for
some time principal of an excellent school
in Ohie, and a preacher, we believe, in the
denomination which supported it, and
afterward a lawyer. He has risen rapidly
in Congress, until he occupies the chair
manship of the committee which is second
in importance in the Heuse. His constit
uents have been verv nreud of him, and
have had reason for their pride.
But were we citizens of the Nineteenth
district of Ohie we would seek of Mr. Gar

before consenting te vote for his election.

Hew Mr. Sam. Ward Ca ed the Sacceisfal
Career et a Famous Dentist la Pans.
One of the notabilities of Paris is Dr.
Evans, the celebrated American dentist,
who has amassed a great fortune by the
practice of his profession among the aris
tocratic and fashionable families of Paris.
Dr. Evans ewes much of his fame and for
tune te Dr. Brewster, whose partner he
was for a few years and whom he succeed
ed thirty years age when that gentleman
retired from business with a large fortune.
Dr. Brewster died about a month age, and
since his death many curious stories, net
all consistent, have appeared in regard te
the causes of his success. Dr. Brewster
was a native of Middlebury, Vt., but lived
for some time in Baltimore. He went te
Paris in 1833 and struggled hard te estab
lish a business. In 1835 he had (riven up
the attempt, thoroughly discouraged by
the want of appreciation displayed by
Americans for the American art of saving
teeth, and was en the point of returning
te America. At -this time Mr. Ward was
in Paris and met Dr. Brewster at dinner
at a well-known table d'hote much fre
quented by Americans and kept by M.
Henri, near the Passage du Panorama.
This dinner marked the turn of the tide
which led Dr. Brewster en te fortune.
What occurred is thus related by Mr.
"I was led te take an interest in Dr.
Brewster's fortunes en learning from him
that he had been a pupil and friend of Dr.
Family, who at that time had a house in
Park place, and who as early as 1854 had
filled some teeth for me. I endeavored te
persuade him te give Paris another trial.
He told mc that M. Desirabode, the most
prominent dentist in Paris atthc time, had
said te him that the French preferred false
teeth te unsound ones, however repaired.
As his forte lay in his skill in filling teeth,
this seemed te disceurage him very much.
I made an appointment te have him exam
ine my teeth the next day. The peer den
tist had plenty of leisure, and when I
called en him he carefully examined my
teeth and decied te put in ten steps.
He performed the operation se well
and evinced such a delicate skill that
I was much gratified, and handed him a
check en Hettingcr & Ce., for 200 francs.
I was then about departing for Germany.
AVhen en paying a farewell visit te my
bankers in the Rue Bcrgere, Mr. Jamisen,
a brother-in-law aud partner of Mr. Het
tingcr, remarking en the clicque for 200
francs,' inquired what en earth I had paid
se much money te a dentist for when a
whole ratelier could be had for less than
that amount. I explained te him the
American dentist's theory of saving teeth.
During the conversation Mr. Hettingerhad
come up, and observed that his wife had
great trouble with her teeth and asked if I
thought Dr. Brewster could licnefit her. I
said, try him, by all means.' About two
two years after, I again visited Paris prier
te my return te this country. On my ar
rival I heard of the great success of my
friend Dr. Brewster, who was then the court
dentist and high in favor with Leuis
Philippe. Wishing te have my teeth again
examined, I called en him at his
elegant quarters in the Faubourg St.
Germain. He received me with grateful
enthusiasm. 'Yeu,' said he, 'have been
the cause of my success. In consequence
of your commendation I brought my skill
te the relief of Mrs. Hettingcr, and my
success in her case brought me no end of
patients among the members of le haute
finance. Soen after I attended Colonel
'Thern and his large family, and he paid
mcabill or 4,000 francs. My practice
then extended te the Faubourg St. Germain
thence te the diplomatic corps, and thence
te royalty. I had just returned from St.
Petersburg, where I was called te attend
the imperial family.' The successful den
tist net only refused te accept a fee for his
service, but insisted en my acceptance of a
handsome caue of hippopotamus hide
mounted with turquoises set in geld. Un

Fer a number of years longer back than
our memory reaches, this weeds, which
was then the property of Henry Ebcrly,
accomedated the worshipers. The pres
ent owner some time since decided net te
cut a tree, and it is new expected that
these meetings will be held annually.
Among the necessary improvements is a
well of clear cool water that was contin
ually beset by thirsty beings yesterday.
The weather was very warm, but never
theless there was a large attendance. The
dust, stirred by the many vehicles and
constant premenadinir,causcd much annoy
ance and yet it seemed te be mitigated by
the deep interest taken in the services. We
rcfermere especially te the singing which
seemed te lack no force. The colored
folks, although there were many less than
a hundred present, had representatives
from all parts of the county. A half dozen
of ministers occupied the pulpit during the
afternoon ; a seat attached te the pulpit
seated a dozen laymen who took an active
part in she singing. When they sing net
a feet is still, aud at times they become se
interested that " they revel in the noise."
After the preaching by Rev. Robinson, of
Lancaster, thejr-ingmg was prclnigcil
for a long time. While this part of the
services is taking place a half dozen plates
arc passed around among the auditors for
money. Fer a long time no mere than
$6.05 was collected, when one of the min
isters announced that $7 was what they
wanted. It was up-hill work te get it. A
countryman who steed near the pulpit
bought a. slip a song entitled "Death
and the Sinner," which they consider
their best piece, and had it sung alter
agreeing te pay twenty-live cents. This
was a big lift, but mere was wanted and
the collectors again took the plates. They
are sending their arrows into the ranks of
Satan, but many who were present arc
net deeply impressed with the belief that
much geed is accomplished by these meet
ings. There was much reckless driving en the
reads leading te the grove as welt as in it,
aud the wonder is net that acci
dents occur, but that se many cscare
them. There were only two yesterday.
A collision occurred en the pike between
two teams belonging te J. E. Webb, of
Mount Jey, and Yeung Hinkle, near Col
umbia. The horse of the Litter's team
commenced te kick and became detached
from the buggy. Webb's was upset, but
he escaped injury. It is reported that the
lady who was with Hinkle is badly in
jured. While young Ilciscy, of West Denegal
was driving toward Mount Jey en the
Denegal read the horse became unmanage
able and ran off. I leisey was thrown from
his vehicle and had an arm broken.
A horse hitched te a buggy in the rear
of the weeds became rampant aud lay
down. Nothing mere than an excitement
which drew heavily en the attendants at
the circle, was the result.
Rev. D. Hazel, of Philadelphia, occu
pied the Presbyterian pulpit yesterday
morning and evening. The campniceting
did net all'cct the attendance of this con

under advisement until Saturday next.
The remaining desertion anil surety of
the peace cases were continued until next
Saturday. The following is the
Kcpoitef tlie Craiitl Jury.
Te the Honorable the Jmlirs of thr Veurl of
Quarter Sessions of Hie J'l-iiee in tintl for the
Comiti of lAtnctistcr :
The grand inquest of the commonwealth
of Pennsylvania te inquire into and for the
said county of Lancaster de respectfully
report : That wc have acted upon 138
bills presented te us by the district atter
ney, of which number 119 were returned
true bills and 19 were ignored.
The offenses charged were, as a general
rule, of the lowest grades of crime, and
many, we think, tee trifling te warrant
the justices of the peace and the constables
iu returning them te court. This practice
of many of our county officers of multiply
ing business simply for their own gain and
at the expense of the public cannot be tee
strongly condemned and if iessible should
be stepped. We sec no reason why many
of the cases brought before us for petty
larcenies and ether slight offenses, should
net have been finally disposed of by the
aldcrdmcn or justices of the peace before
whom they were brought,nor why offences
committed at the same time by several
parties could net be included in one indict
ment. Much expense might be saved our
taxpayers aud the same result attaincd,aiii"
if there, is any law te put a step te such
extravagance wc earnestly hejic your heit
erablc court will enferce it.
In further discharge of our duties as in
structed by your honorable court, tlu
grand inquest visited the public institt institt
tiens of the county. In the children's heire
wc found 78 inmates, 58 boys and 20 girb.
All were in geed health, under the cxccJ
cnt management of Mrs. Hamakcr and Icr
cflcicnt assistants, who we believe are to te
ing all in their power for the moral, intel
lectual and physical training of these wads
of the county. The building is in a clcsnly
condition throughout, apparently in gied
repair with the exception of the lloei of
the boys' play room and the wash rdrni,
which will seen require repairing or pos
sibly renewing. We next visited therms therms
heuse under the management of Mr. fehn
Breck, who reported 180 inmates, as fol fel
lows : 123 men, 48 women and 9 children ;
also the hospital under the supervision of
Mr. B. F. Cox, who reported 224 inmates.
The condition of both these institutions
and their surroundings as well it the
county farm, and the energy and aVility
with which they appear te us te be fcen-
I ducted, reflect great credit en the man-
llUIIIUUb, ,11111 IIU lliaLltllLIUlK Vt tUIUIl
our county may well feel proud.
The health and comfort of the inflates
arc well cared for, the previsions tmplc
and of geed quality. In the hespitil we
found fault with the location of thobake
heuse and tleur room. The ftrmer
is located in the basement immedately
below, and the latter alotgside
of the rooms containing the worst cases of
insanity, which rooms it is impossule te
keep clean, and the filth at times finds its
way through the fleer and ceiling lelew.
Wc would recommend that cither a sep
arate bake heuse aud flour room be con
structed outside the main building or a
change be made, if mere advisable, in the
occupancy of the rooms overhead se that
the tleur may net become contaminated.
Wc would also recommend an additional
fire plug te be placed west of the hospital
and the keeping en hand of about 500 feet
or hose for the protection of the surround
ing buildings. At the recent burning tef
the barn much damage might have been
prevented by a timely precaution of this
kind, and the aunereus farm buildings in
that locality demand this improvement
In the county prison wc find everything
iu geed order and the prisoners well cared
for under the efficient management of the
keeper, Mr. J. P. Weise. He reported 11 1
inmates as fellows : 56 convicts. 35 await
ing trial and 23 for drunken and disorder
In view of the bad .condition of many of
the foundation walls and the probability of
either extensive repairs and additions, or
an entirely new and larger structure being
needed in the near future, wc would net
recommend auy interior improvements,
with the exception, perhaps of at least two
auumeuai ireu-ciaa cells, similar u mc
one new occupied by the prisoner, Frank
ford, in which te confine the most desper
ate jail-breakers committed te our prison.
In conclusion, the grand inquest would
tender their thanks te his honor, the court,
the district attorney, the sheriff and ether
officials, for their kindness and attention
extended te them iu the performance of
Stephen Grissingcr. foreman ; Allan A.
Herr, secretary ; D. M. ICanffman, 31. W.

The court said that part of the report
referring te the almshouse and prison would
be presented te their respective beards.
As te the multiplication of complaints,
the court would direct its officer te make
out but one bill where the offense was com
mitted at the same time. The. district at
torney for some time, the court was pleased
te say, has been preventing the multiplica
tien ei indictments.
The grand jury was discharged with the
thanks of the court.
Cenrt adjourned until Monday morning
at 10 o'clock.
