The report of the Craig Colony for epileptics, on the first eight months of its working, from February 1st to October 1st, 1896, is necessarily of extreme interest. The colony in that period has admitted 145 persons, viz., 69 men and 76 women. A few of these came from their own homes, but most of them from the county poor and almshouses. All were declared to be indigent and were admitted on the official application of a Superintendent of the poor. It is pointed out that there exist in the asylums of the State about 150 and in the poorhouses about 600 more of this class who are eligible for admission to the colony.
