Extract

In three numbers of this weekly, Dr. Krayatsch, Director of the Asylum at Mauer-Oehling in Lower Austria, shows what has been already done, and what is farther proposed to be done, in Lower Austria for young idiots and imbeciles. By the census of 1890 there were returned, in a population of 2,800,000, 3000 idiots and cretins, of whom 400 were considered to be of a school-attending age. But Professor von Wagner, in his investigations on cretinism in Styria, has shown that in the year 1899 there were as many as 284 boys and 184 girls in institutions for the care and training of weak-minded children in Lower Austria.
