Schuyler county is under township organization, but the paupers are a county charge. We have nothing to add to what was said about this almshouse in our last report, and nothing to take back. The keeper has occupied his present position since March 1, 1877. His salary is seven hundred dollars, and the expenses, which amounted last year to twenty-seven hundred dollars, are met by the county. The amount expended for outdoor relief was something over a thousand dollars. When visited, this almshouse contained twenty-seven inmates, of whom eight were children and six insane, none of whom were in seclusion or otherwise restrained ; five of them were men capable of farm labor. The county physician receives seventy-five dollars a year, and furnishes medicines, but visits the almshouse only. An almshouse register is kept, but the overseers of the poor do not keep the accounts nor make the reports required by law. 1)Reports Made to the General Assembly of Illinois, 1881
