We feel thai some exnlanation Is due ti the
taxpayers lor the extraordinary expenditures
lor liuproveiiieiiis anu repairs noieu in inc.
reirart. The main expenditure Is for a Imlld
lug for sane men. the ueed tor which has been
left many years. The building for sane males
used up to this time wan the original frame
almshouse, which was iunufHciout for the ac
commodation of all tho male Inmates, nnd the
overflow was uccoiumodaled In the basement
f the Insane building, the (insanitary condi
tion of which was a constant tpnroeof com
plaint. With the OOnaant of the state bon d
of ehurltles, which approved of the plans, wu
contracted for the erection of a large lire
proof building, whl h Is now approaching
completion and which will be ample for tho
purposes for which it Is Intended for mans
years to come, iiiaklne due allowance for the
lucrcaec of ibo population of tbe district.
Recreation In t lie open air is necessary for
tho physical bia'lh and oenefloiaj to the
mental condition ol the Ir.ianc. Tho fence
about the recreated! grounda. liuilt about ten
years ago. h id become so insecure that it waa
unsafe to ullow the insane in it. Desiring to
tnske the work secure and permanent, we
have enclosed the groiiuds with a brick wall
eight feet high, with a brick wall in the cen
tre, dividing It into two yards for the sepal a
Hon of tbe sexes. A looted walk t urn, about
thu Inside of the outer walls, a pavilion hi s
been built In the . enter of each yard, SJ that
the tiisnne may have their customary exercise
In wet weather.
A conduit, tu which the steam pipes of the
institution have been placed, was also one of
the important Improvements "f the year.
