SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22,1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT. INDIANA PAGE NINETEEN This Changing World Cass County Historical Society PART 478 Two names of the quartet of Long Cliff officials that we printed a couple of weeks ago were transposed. The tallest man of the group, at the extreme right, was Henry Barnhart, of Rochester; the man next to him was Warren Me- Cray, who became governor.of the state a few years later. We had a quick repercussion regarding our comments about Dr. Charles W. Slick in last Sunday's paper, In the first place, we located him in the wrong town; he lived in Mishawaka instead of Valparaiso. Mrs. L. P. Reinhart told us that he did the first bit of dental work she ever had done. She was twelve years old at the time. He didn't wear a jacket, and those long whiskers bothered her. She told her mother she didn't like thorn. He was the family dentist tor years.

He is listed as "Physician and Medical Superintendent of Construction 1 , Insane Hospital." The next issue of the LogansRort directory shows a "Joseph G. Rogers, physician, residence south side of North, *5 east of Ninth." A friend whose roots go deep into Logansport's past tells us that he moved into the Annabel house, which was in the 900 block of North, on the south side of the street, so undoubtedly he was the man in charge at Long Cliff. THURMAN C. ANNABEL was an attorney in Logansport eighty years ago. He moved away a short time before Long Cliff was started. His address in the old directories was shown as 109 North. That was the old system of numbering, which appears not to have been much of a system, or method; just a haphazard way of showing where people lived. The present number of that house is 923 North. By the time the next directory came out the new hospital was in operation, and Dr. Rogers, with his family, entrance, close to State Road 25. AS WE HAVE previously remarked, Dr. Rogers spent the rest of his life at Long Cliff, and it was a life well spent. It is most fitting that we quote from a memorial issued in his honor at the time of his death, April 11, 1908; literary and legal lore and in mu- Earl Palmer, a native of Logans- sic he was sunburst of intellectual- port's South Side, who had be- ity . his devotion to his home and his parental care for his family the 'discharge of every tutions, residing in Logansport in the meantime until May 1883 when he assumed charge as Superintendent of the Northern Hospital for Insane, which position he still held at the time of his death "IN THE SUBSTANTIAL architecture and durable and sanitary construction of Long Cliff Hospital the handiwork of Dr. Rogers will endure for years to come as a mon- increased ument to this genius and his Rogers was asking for more _ca- faithfulness to duty . . . many of the acts that put our benevolent institutions on the high plane of duty devolving upon him as a leader of righteous citizenship, made for him a name that is a credit to the high estate of a father and an honor to Indiana manhood." AT THE FIRST' Dr. Rogers hac' two assistants,- Drs. Frank B. Wynn and Samuel E. Smith. The original number of beds, that is, the capacity of the hospital, was 366, equally divided between the come a physician. He-was a member of the medical staff at Long Cliff for about 13 years. When Dr. Dr. Terflinger took a leave of absence to enter military service Dr. Palmer took over. When Dr. Terflinger returned to duty at the Cliff Dr. .Palmer entered private practice in Logansport, where he remained until his death. He established a private hospital in the Dykeman home at 1st and Broadway, wriere the Y.W.C.A. is now. FOLLOWING DR.

Returning to Madison he served as surgeon in the military hospital located there until the close of the Civil War when he went to Europe, where he spent two years in travel and in the pursuit of nis studies in the clinics of Paris and other medical centers. He then returned to Madison and engaged in practice with his father until 1879. On June 20, 1872, he married Margaret Watson, of Bedford, Pennsylvania . . . he accepted the superintendency of the State Hospital for Insane at Indianapolis in 1B79, which posi- tion forever .
