The D.ard of Commissioners for .tha In
sane has completed Its work and has Issued
the report upon which the members of the
commission and County Clerk Reed have
been engaged for ficveral weeks. It Is the
drat report of the kind ever Issued , and It
Is believed It will prove of great value ap
well as convenience. The report contains
the namc of the patients , the addresses of
their friends and relatives and all that Is
known about the unfortunates , making a
concise and complete history of each case.
The re-port refers largely to the incurable
cases , which have become county chirgca
and are now loatcd In St. Bernard's ' hos
pital or being cared for outside of the hos
pital at the cxpciuo of the county. The
report In tirade Up after a complete personal
examination of on oh patient and showa that
there are twenty-eight male and thirty-two
female , mostly Incurables' , In the hospital.
Two of these , Henry AVchlnnJ and A. D.
Quick , are nol regular county charges. While
the report was In progress of preparation
and since the visit lo the institution three
of the patients have bseti discharged.
The commissioners make a suggestion to
the county supervisors , to iwliorn the report
la directed. They say : "Your commlsslon-
eis respectfully ask that they be permitted ,
to draw expenses for the removal of Insane
persona lu their Jurisdiction to their homes
ouuido of the sfato , and thus relieve the
county and state of the expense of their
keeping. Frequently such cases arise ns
that of Herman Muyfleld , who was scut to
Clarlnda In July and discharged as cured In
December , and returned to this city. During
his confinement in the hospital his mother
removed to Louisville , Ky. , and desired htm
sent there. No funds were available to
soml him. and It wa feared thnt If 1i > fi
here he would again 'become ' Insane and a
charge on this county , and your commis
sioners , wishing to relieve the taxpayers
from any posalhlo chance of hlu being again
charge on them , directed their secretary ,
F. L. Keeil , to purchase a ticket from here !
lo Louisville at the expense , of $19.25 , which
was done. Similar cases arise during the
intermissions of the beard , ami your com
missioners suggest that It Is in the Interest
or economy for your honorable body to In
struct the county auditor to honor such
requisitions as your commissioners may In
the future make '
to 'meet such cose ?
"Your commissioners further report that
i ' . , cases comlnS Before them for
nvestlgatlon. careful Inquiry la made as
to the property , residence , etc. , and wherever -
ever nny property Is found the appointment
of a guardian Is suggested , and if not made
by those Interested Is made by the board.

number of acute female cases sent by the
board to St. Bernard's hospital was thlrty-
Mve. Of this number seven have died , fifteen
have recovered and eleven yet remain. Of
the male patients twelve were received as In
curables from 'Mercy ' hospital , seventeen came
from Clarinda a total of twenty-nine. Of
this number twelve have died , two "have re

The total number of acute male cases sent
to St. 'Bernard's ' hospital was fifty , of which
number ten have died , 'thirty ' have recovered
and ten remain.
Three 'Incurables" from the state hospitals

ns "recovered. Forty-
five acute cases sent to St. Bernard's hospital
have recovcroi and nineteen such cases have
resulted In death , making the recoveries In
acute cases a little moo : 'than ' 54 per cent.

The commissioners say 'that In the selection
of cases sent to St , Bernard's the wishes of
the friends are consulted. All alcoholic
cases are sent there , as they generally re
cover soon. All cases of genural paresis ,
whlph arc always Incurable , are sent there
at once. All cases of mental Imbecility
which promise nothing In the way of re
covery and where the patients are too 111 to
bo sent to Glcnwood. are sent there , as arc
also all cases where the patients are too
feeble to stand thu exhaustion of the trip to
Clarlnda and remain there until such tlmo ns
they can bo safely removed. By this method
the boar ! not only observes the wishes of
the Crlcnds , but looks to the 'welfare of the
patients and to saving expense of transporta
tion to Clarlnda. The medical member of
thn board , Dr. Thomas , has the medical c.iru
of the patients at S ( . Bernard's and cxer-
clsca a watchful care over them without any
expense to the county.

DES MOINES. Jan'V 1. ( Special. ) Secre
tary Fowler of the. Iowa State Agricultural
society has received reports from 104 of the
107 agricultural societies In the state
n regard to their business during t'uc year
1S97 and these reports show them to be In
a more prosperous condition than they were
at the same time a year ago. The receipts
from the different fairs for 1887 are over
$50,000 ahead of those of last year. While the
aggregate Indebtedness of tlje associations
has Increased something like $10,000 the 'bal '
ance on hand has 'been swelled more than
proportionately. At the close of last year
there- was a balance in the combined treas
uries amounting to $0,345.25 , while they
emerge this year from tholr annual celebra
tions with a balance of $22,070.10 , Even with
in Increase In the ladcbtednci-'s of the asso
ciations the entire amount rwlll not average
moro 'than 25 per cent of the value of the
property of the individual associations ,
which average all the way from $3,000 to
$10.000 each. Over sixty of the associations
have sent In the required affidavits and re
ceived the $200 bonus from the state. The
ether forty will probably make a showing
'beforo ' the legislature and eventually receive
the same sum.

BERLIN , Jan. 1. Bishop Anzcr of South
ah a n Tung , China , dined with the emperor
and empicss at the new palace on Tuesday.
On the following day 'the ' bishop , to whoso ,
shrewd advice and detailed Information re
garding the whole province of Shan Tung ,
lu which Klao Chan Is situated , the German
government owes much , gave an Interesting
account of the occurrences of the previous
evening , and of the audience he was accorded
'ly the emperor In-November , and also told
of his audience with the < pope a fortnight ago.
The 'bishop , who has been thirty-four years
in China , and who is about to ircturn , said :
"There is no doubt Germany means to keep
Klao Chau and Its contiguous territory ; and
if the right 'measures ' arc taken. It will prove
a. most valuable possession , even more valu
able -than Hong Kong , because Its mineral
wealth , coal and1 Iron , although needing a
laigo amount of capital to develop It , is al
most Inexhaustible. "
Relative to his audience with the pope ,
Blshco Anstcr sild that his holiness "highly
ai proved the ciiergy shown by Germany In
the gigantic tasK of evening China and pre
wiring"It for the blessings of C-.iristlanlty
and clvlll/atlcci The pope also expressed
the opinion that speedy penalty would bo
meted out to China for the last mission mur
ders which would 'strike wholesome terror
Into the breast of its heathen government. ' "
The pope charged Bishop Anzcr to convey
his cordial greetings and wishes to the em-
Ccror , exrrcsslng the hope tV.at the further
measures to be taken by Germany In China
would bo crowned with success , as Ger
many's mission was arousing the sym
pathetic Interest of nil Christendom.
His holiness touched upon the question of
the Catholic mis
a German protectorate over
sions In China , lilttierto considered 10 uu in
the hands of Fiance , and the pope further
Intimated that instructions tad recently been
sent to the bishops and higher clergy of Ger
many to shape their conduct In regard to the
Chinese expedition and the enlargement of
the German navy , In consonance with the
views of the Vatican on these matters.
