June 20, 1877
Complete list of those who depend on the County for Support.
A glance at the shrine upon which the tax-payers deposit part of their money. 

One woman got enough flour, wood, soap and provisions to supply a whole family for keeping one feeble old man.

Below we print the names of those who have been drawing poor relief from the county outside of the poor house. A great deal has been said in respect to a matter of so vital importance to the tax payers, and it has been rumored that a number of paupers were drawing relief who were able to care for themselves. The list will enable those interested to ferret out the truth. The amount paid out during the month of March (an average month), 1876, was $1,587.20. The amount paid out for the month of March this year was $998.20 thus showing that the "new dynasty" have reduced the expense somewhat. The list amounted to but one hundred and four names for the month ending June 1st, 1877.

We also give a few specimens of the manner in which relief was issued. It will be seen that Mrs. Philip Smith, for boarding an old man, received 100 pounds of flour, and a half cord of wood nearly every month of the year. To summarize, she received 1,150 pounds of flour, 6 cords of wood, 131 bars of soap, 24 pounds of candles, 1 bushel of potatoes, and 4 pecks of meal, for the support of one feeble old man. Mrs. Mary Boyle received for the support of a stout, able-bodied family, most of whom were able to earn their own living, 1,350 lbs of flour, 5 bushels of potatoes, 15 pecks of meat, 72 bars of soap, 17 lbs. of candles, 4 cords of wood. Elizabeth McAlleece received 1,025 lbs of flour, 51 bars of soap, 19 lbs of candles, 16 pecks of meal, 3 bushels of potatoes, 3 cords of wood, and so on to the end of the calendar.
