At the present time there is not a Bank in new York state paying a larger interest than 4 per cent the great majority Are paying 3� per cent., and this upon sums not exceeding $1,000. Friday last week in company with our old Friend . Geo. Arnold we paid a Brief visit to the county infirmary a few Miles East this place. We found superintendent Landis is Busy garnering the Golden Harvest. The farm contains about 400 acres As Fine land As can be found anywhere and under the care . Landis it has been placed in a High state cultivation. A hedge Fence has been planted both sides the Road from the poor House to the Uhrichsville Road a distance Over a Quarter a mile. A Large Field near the House is also surrounded by a Beautiful hedge Fence that is kept in excellent order. The Large barn and numerous outbuilding Are in Good condition and the same can lie said the Stock and everything connected with the farm. The has recently been re painted and otherwise improved. It contains forty rooms some which arc Large enough to contain bed sufficient to sleep Twenty persons. Everything throughout the entire institution is kept scrupulously clean and we venture to say that 110 similar Public institution in the state will Bear a More careful inspection then the Tuscarawas county infirmary so far As concerns its management under superintendent Landis and his excellent wife. The culinary department is conducted with Economy yet the inmates 102 Are provided with plenty wholesome substantial food. The a crazy House a As it is called is a one Story building and contains hut eight rooms into each which the superintendent is frequently compelled to put from two to three insane persons some whom become violent. At present some them have to he furnished quarters in the main building with other inmates. Tuscarawas is a Large and wealthy county and we feel assured there Are few if any tax layers who would lift their voice against the proposition to erect a suitable building for the Comfort and Protection these unfortunate people. In the present Structure we find both sex huddled together with Only a Small hallway separating them. The entire floor surface the so called a crazy House is not larger than a comfortable room should be and there Are no convenience whatever connected with the place. We Are informed that at one time the commissioners contemplated putting up a suitable building and had the ground measured off but from some cause the project was abandoned.
