County Institutions in New Teik Which Are Deng of Horror and Filth. of AttOn RevMtod WkMh for Frvaipt Thorough of Belter. i ALBANY, Jan. first attuu report of the State la Lunacy was made public yesterday.: A considerable amount of space is debited to a comparison of State care and cottty care of tbe insane, and the report Strong ground in favor of the formef.f A. Large number of shocking served in tho county institutions Imted. One aged woman afflicted with turbulent dementia was found con fitted in a cell-like room. Her bed was scribably filthy and tbe floor was and soiled with her excrement, the odibr of which was terribly offensive. HM only attendants were two pauper gins who brought her food in a basin which they set on her filthy bed. She had no companions except five filthy male pa- tients in the same building. The beds of the latter patients also saturated with human filth. In another part of the building a young woman was found attired in noth- ing but a blue cotton skirt and a man's coat. Iler room was cold and cheerless and its floor was wet and foul. In an- other place the attendant excused the practice of bathing several patients in the same water by saying that ''the pa- tients with skin diseases were bathed last." In andther, two filthy patients were put in the same bod. The commis- sion concludes that however feasible may be the theory of county care it has fallen far short, in practice, of the hopes entertained for it. Its difficulties and defects seem to be ineradicable and the system should be abolished by the Leg- islature. State care, on the other hand, while not perfect, represents all that is best in the present state of medical knowledge. The absence of uniform and reliable statistics covering many years makes it impossible to determine whether the proportion of the insane to the popula- tion is increasing; but while it is cer- tain that there is a steady numerical in- crease, the frequent admission, dis- charge and re-admission of patients to asylums aids in making statistics unre- liable.

Va., Jan. hor- rible boiler explosion occurred Tuesday at the sawmill of A. ]fe Leech, on Fall- ing Rock creek, twenty-five miles from here, which killed three men.

ST. PAOT, Minn., Jan. the bonders' convention waa called to order jMtarday the eight-hour question was for diacuasiom.
