The church now numbers 17 and Uhe Bible school besides a flourishing land abutting on the allotment for use as park purposes The only condition which the firm imposes is that meas ures be taken to enhance the natura beauty of the place and that It be set aside for park purposes only The site of the proposed park lies west of the corporation line about half way between Wooster street and the W Li E tracks It is covered with a growth of large trees and the topo graphy is admirably suited for the purpose suggested The fact that the land is being reserved for parki pur poses the firm believes will make more desirable the lots it offers for sale The offer of the Lowries was con tained in a letter today sent by them to J C Corns chairman of the new industries committee of the board of trade It was as follows Massillon May 22 1909 Mr J C Corns Chairman of Ap praisal Committee City Dear Sir We wish to thank you and your committee for the report you made recently to the board bi trade in connection with the appraise ment of our lots in our Marshall Hil addition Ho the city Massillon We were much pleased with the re port as a whole and especially with that part of it wherein it is recom mended that a certain portion of the N O T Patrons Inconvenienced by the Delay in the tion of the Loop on Hospital Day To morrow at the Institution Is insantiy in the seventeen coun ies from which patients are commit ed to the Massillon state hospital on he increase More patients were admitted to the nstitution from their Homes during he month ending May 15 than during any other month since it was opened The number transferred from other nstitutions is not considered The ortyfive that were received here be ween 15 and May 15 were for he most part acute cases and came directly from their homes The large increase the num ber reported usually is not considered as an affirmative answer to the ques tion Abnormal conditions are shown occasionally in all sociological re ports It Is expected that succeeding reports will show sufficient falling off inthe number of admissions to re store the normal average for the year It is a well known fact that the winter season is more likely to pro duce insanity than the summer The depressing effect of being housed up cloudy skies and the season when na ture goes tS Js very preemptible among a large rfstdber of patients in the The coming of spring sunny weather are conditions looked to brighten the pa tients and make them cheerful The sudden increase in the number of admissions coming as it does at the close of the disagreeable season of the year is believed to be n part of the weather Especially In le cases of those who are not en owed with strong minds or who have uttered mental illness the feeling of jepression caused by bad weather trhich persons in normal health eas y throw off takes strong hold The ospital physicians look to the sum mer as being the most favorable time or the patients More patients are ischarged as recovered in the fall ban at any other time Those who are able to go home are llowed to take a vacation during the ummer months and the result is not nfrequently a complete cure The report of Dr Eyrhan shows hat on April115 there were pa ients enrolled on the books of the nstitution One was discharged as recovered one improved and eleven died allotment be reserved for a It shows that your
