Notes or transcript:  “There is some talk of building an asylum in Nodaway county. At present the county has fifty patients in the St. Joseph asylum and the expense to take care of these patients costs the tax payers nearly ten thousand dollars per year, while if the county took care of them the cost would be greatly reduced. The county has already paid out enough money in the care of these patients to build an asylum large enough to hold all the patients and rooms to spare. All this being true, we believe it is no more than right that we have an asylum, and save the county all the unnecessary expense possible.”
