COUNTY POOR FARM
BUILDINGS ARE NOW
Reservoir to Supply Water to Farm
and Buildings About Done Cot
tages and Quarters for Inmates
Are Conveniently Arranged.
In this utilitarian ago Umatilla
county Is as businesslike ns the next
one and In evidence of tbut fact cnu
bo brought to mind the new venture
at the poor farm where tho workmen
are now comnlotliiK tho buildings for
n new departure In the problem of .
cnrlng for the poor of the comity.
About two miles south of west of
the city Is a tract of IfiO acres which
tho county hns bought for n poor
farm. It Is part In the valley nnd
nnrt. Iii the rlvnr bed so that when It
I is brought under the care of tho man
agement and Is given the advantages
of Irrigation it will be made a gar
den nnd an ornament to tho county
The entire tract will be Irrigated
from a reservoir which Is now half
completed nnd will soon be ready for
the water. Tills reservoir Is sltunt-
n.l ir tin nf n 1-1 1 1 1 linnr flln rnf-
tages and from it the water will be
' piped over the houses and trenched
I out over the land. The water will
he pumped Into the reservoir from a
' well on the place and Is a sgood
' water as there Is In the country. It
! will bo pumped up by a gasoline en
gine and there Is siimclcnt or It to
supply all of the demands of the
Two Cottages Under Way.
There are two cottages under con
struction at present nnd they are sit
uated near the road on the front of
the county's holdings. The one near
est done is the cottage to he occupied
by the suiierintendont and his family
as a dwelling.
From the front door you enter a
long hall from which tho stalrwny
to tho upper floor takes its start. At
the"rlght of the hall as you go In Is
the large dining room whore the in
mates of the farm will take their
meals. It is a room 13 feet and 3
inches wide by 31 feet 3 Inches long
and will be capable of seating all
of the people the county will have to
feed for some time to come.
The tloor will be oiled, as will all nt i
the floors in the building.
Passing through the dining room
you come into the kitchen which Is
large and convenient as can be made
It Is well lighted and well ventilated
and will lie a model in every way
On the opposite side of the kitchen,
from the large dining room, Is the
pantry, which Is well supplied with
shelves nnd drawers for the conven
ience of the cooks. A large sink will
lie placed in it so thut the Jhhes can
be handled ns close as possible to the
placo where they are used.
Opening out of the pantry Is the
family dining room to be used by
the superintendent nnd his family.
It is a pleasant room, well lighted
nnd finished in tho natural wood.
Up stairs there aro four rooms for
tho use of the officers of the place, ,
as sleening rooms. At the present
timo all of them will not be required ,
' by tho superintendent's family and
' It is possible that some of the in- j
mates of tho farm may bo placed
there. The rooms aro largo and well
placed as regards ventilation nnd
light and will ho cool and pleasant.
All of tho plastering used in tho
finishing of both of the cottages Is
tho acme plaster, a compound im
ported from Texas, and which is al
most as hard as cement. It is put
on with great care by the contractors
and especial precautions have been
taken to prevent Its cracking on tho
walls. Wire lathing has been used
in most of the construction and nil
of the woodwork has been so made
as to overcome tho tendency to draw
at tho corners, thereby reducing tho
danger of shrinkage nnd subsequent
wreck of tho plaster.
Tho second cottago and the larger,
is to be tho home of tho Inmates of
the farm and there all of tho work
pe:-a'fiing to tho household with the
exception of the cooking will he per
formed. In it will contain 15 rooms
of which about 10 will bo for tho
sleeping apartments of the Inmates.
In the basement, which extends
over the whnlo ground nrcn of the
house will bo located tho hentlng
plant nnd tho laundry. The r'noo
will be hented by hot nlr and the
plant Is ns perfect as ro'lirt ho de
vised. No cold air will be admitted
direct from tho outside, hut it. will
nil be tempered heforo It Is put in the
ventilators. Tho air coming Into the
ventilating pipes Is first taken to tho
attic' and then forced down ngnln
through the air space In the big chim
ney anil from there carried to the
rooms to furnish fresh nlr to the peo
ple. The central chimney Is large nnd
through Its center the Iron pipe or
stack carrying oft the smoko trom
the heater Is run. As all of thu nir
used for the ventilation of tho house
has to pass the length of the ehlni
nev around this pipe, It will bo seen
that there will be no cold air admit
ted to the rooms.
The laundry Is also in the base
ment and covers 20x30 feet of the
floor space. It will be equipped with
three cement tubs nnd several wash
ing machines and a wringer. In fact,
it will be n complete little lnundry
plant nnd will have all of the conven
iences of tho larger places. In it will
he done the wnshlng of all the people
connected with the plnco. The dry
room will Iki close to the fiinmce and
will be heated by It.
On the first floor will be found the
sitting rooms. One of tho rooms will
he on the right of tho hall as you go
In nnd the other on the left. Tho
rooms will both he nbout 12x14 feet.
The surgery will be on the first
floor nnd will be In the southwest
comer of the building. It Is a room
15x13 feet In dimensions and will be
well lighted. It Is plastered with the
acme smooth plaster and will bo
painted with sovornl coats of white
enamel paint. There will be no wood
In the room except the floor and the
window sashes nnd the doors. The
casings are all of galvanized Iron,
and the floors will be oiled and pol
ished. Adjoining tills room Is the
drug room, a smnller room 10x12 feet,
well supplied with shelves and
On the second floor there are four
rooms each 12x22 feet. These are
to he used by the men as sleeping
apartments nnd will each contain
five or six beds. All of the men nre
to be Kept on the second floor and
the women on tho first.
The bath rooms will he found on
both iloors nnd will be fitted with the
host porcelain tubs. Adjoining the
bath rooms on both Iloors arc the
closets, fitted with modem plumbing
and ns sanitary as can be made.
The plumbing in the buildings is
the most complote In the county, for
It has been put In piece by piece nnd
every precaution taken to make it
lasting and effective. It Is trapped
In several places, and has a fresh air
vent pipe that takes away the least
chance for the gas from tin cesspool
getting Into the houses.
The total cost of the place will be
In the neighborhood of $10,000, which
will Include not only the buildings,
but the sowerago and plumbing as
well. When the place Is ready for
the inmates to be moved from their
present location It will be a model
farm and ns soon ns It can bo
straightened out in the details it will
be a self-paying proposition ana the
enro of tho poor of the county will
ho no added expense to the govern
ment. Dennis Nichols is the architect in
charge of the work, and has been tho
overseer of all of the labor done. He
has planned tho buildings from the
ground up nnd has been nt the spot
continually since the work was be
gun. All of tho work with tho exception
of tho carpenter work was done by
contract, and the latter was done by
