Grand Jury Presentments.

We find sixteen inmates in the poor house who appear to be properly and well cared for.  Two little girls, Alice Cofer and Delcia Lusk, should be bound out, and two old negroes, George Ligon and his wife, who are deranged, should be sent to the asylum.  The cost of supporting these paupers from the first of January, 1879, is $557.03.  We call attention to the case of one Mrs. Lusk, whom we think is not a proper person to be an inmate of the poor house, as she is able to earn her support.  We recommend her discharge.
