After Investigating Cottage Plan .

( From Tlmrmlny'H Dnlly.J
NOWH from Lincoln states that At

and Superintendent KeniH hove re
turned from the ciiot where they
went to InvoHtlgato the cottage plan
for hospitals for the Inmnio , wl'ih a
view to recommending the adoption
of micli Hystom for the rehabilitation
of the hosplttal at this place. They
are now onthitHlaHtlc supporters of
the plan and 1'i will bo adopted by

They visited the Institutions at
Kankakoo , ill. , Toledo and Masslllon ,
O. , and Logansport , Ind. , and are con
vinced that the cottage system IH the
thing , and will recommend Us adop
tion for Norfolk at the next mooting
of the board. Speaking of the ad
vantages to bo derived from the COY-
tago system Mr. Pront said :
"It provides facilities for the hotter
clnsHlllcatlou of patients In groups
of their own kind than does the old
system of housing Yhom all In the
Hume building ; It minimizes the dan
ger from lire or other accident to the
Institution ; It affords vastly superior
sanitation and offers many hardly
loss Important advantages for the
comfort and bettor care of patients. "
Of the different institutions visited
the attorney general said that the In
stitution at Toledo IH a magnlllcon'c
plant. In addition to the adminis
tration building , the steam plant
structure , the laundry and other OH-
Hontlal bulldlngH , vhero are fifty four
cottages detached , each capable of
accommodating from thirty-live to
llfty patients. There Is a central dinIng -
Ing room , and smaller ones In the
wards for such patients as are tumble
to take their meals In Yho main dinIng -
At Massillon thorc is also a central
hall , with occasional smaller ones In
the wards. The main hall Is a sump
tuous apartment with marble wains
coting and ether ornrto and costlv
appointments , cosYlng without Its
furnishings about ? 70 000. The super'
lutondeut's house cost about $75.000
and there are a largo number of cot
The asylum at Kankakcc , III. , Is
an enormous Institution , accommodat
ing something over 2,000 patients and
having about -K10 attendants. It Is
not built wholly on the cottage plan ,
for there Is a largo main building
which formed the nucleus of the
Institution , and there have since been
built twenty-four detached structures
on Yho largo house order.
At Logansport , Ind. , the mansion
order is still more pronounced , the so-
called cottages being capable of ac
commodating 100 patients each and
being comprised of two wards , one
on each of two floors.
State Architect Tyler took copious
notes of Yho construction and appoint
ments of the best cottages as ho wont
along , which he will bo able to nil-

HOW FAR THE POSTMAN WALKS ,
A Half Hundred Miles Every Day to
Cover the Norfolk Mall Car
[ From Tuesday's Dally. ]
While hundreds of people in Nor
folk are wont to see him pass the
door twice a day for six days a week ,
/ew people realize just exactly how
many miles the postman walks every
day of his life , except Sundays , to
give the patrons their letters and pa
pers , In fact the postman doesn't
exactly know , himself , for not one of
the carriers in Norfolk 1ms ever meas
ured the distance with a pedometer.
As nearly as they can figure It out ,
however , the city carriers stop about
a half hundred weary miles between
each rising and setting of the sun.
Each carrier is compelled to walk
over about fifteen miles of ground
during his eight hours of duty , to
keep the people of Norfolk posted.
Hut as long im that Is what the post
man Is for , ho doesn't complain. The
force of carriers leave the olllce at
S o'clock every morning and walk
practically all day long , from house
to house , dropping big letters and
little letters , blue letters and white ,
all along the way. They arrange the
letters , in order of the streets and
numbers , in little pigeon holes at Yho
postofllce before they start so that
when they get out on the routes they
have no trouble in locating just the
As an instance of their faithful at
tention to the letter of the law , the
action of one of the carriers during
the terrifllc shower of Saturday is
noted. William Darlington , who
takes mall to the west side , was out
on his route when the cloudburst hap
pened. The law says that carriers
shall not lose time when on duty.
The shower was one of short duration
but in strict accordance with the letter -
tor of the law , Carrier Darlington kept
on walking and returned to headquar
ters drenched through and through.
