Plans for the new county home authorized by a county-wide vote 'last month are now in the hands of contractors, who are figuring .on a bid to be received August ~ for the new building. The new building will be "T" shaped with the top of the "T" acing west on the site of the :ounty home destroyed by fire ast spring. It will be three stores in heighth, but the lower story will be a half basement beneath the ground level, and hall above the ground. The front, or west exposure of he building, will be 93 feet 4 inches long. This part of the building at the ends is 28 feet 4 inches deep, and on the center at the •ear is a wing reaching an addi- ional 53 feet 2 inches east. This part is 28 feet and 2 inches wide. Basement Floor Plan. The lower or basement floor has several storage rooms, the main dining room, which is 26x33, and attendants' room which is 10%xT7, a boiler room 12-20, and a coal •oom 12x26. These rooms are lo- :ated under the front part of the building. Under the wing that goes east is the kitchen, 26x1$, a laundry 26-18, and a lounge 15x26 at .he extreme east end.' From these •ooms doors and steps lead to the 'ard. The main entrance leads up steps on the second floor. This opens into a central hall. On the south of this hall is a sitting room 15x17 a sleeping room 26x17, and toilets. On the north side of the hall is an office 10x10, two bedrooms, one 10x10 and' the other 10x14,- a living room" 10x19,- and quarters for the custodian's family. ,„,;£} Top Floor Like Second.

The bath tub is placed in the center of the bathroom so that at- :endants can care for aged or infirm patients who are not able to care for themselves, The top floor is almost a counterpart of the second floor, except that there is a bedroom where the office is located on the lower floor and the living room for the attendants quarters is larger. .Provision is thus made for two complete families of caretakers, and it is anticipated that if mental patients are taken care of the attention of two families will be required at all times Mental Patients' Quarters. On the top floor also the quarters are designed for care of mental patients, and the windows over a portion of the east or back wing are barred to prevent patients from jumping out. Leading from all three floors is a fire escape on the south side.
