The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 81



The equipment of the Republic has gradually increased until now the Association owns and controls over 350 acres of land. On this is a little village of some twenty-five buildings. Ten are cottages where citizens live. Besides these page 5 there are, a beautiful chapel, a modern school house; a government building, (in which are the court room and the boys jail); a girls jail; a bakery; a carpenter shop; a furniture shop; a plumbing shop; a printing office; the general store, with the Citizens National Bank and the executive offices on the second floor; a steam laundry building, including the steam heating plant which supplies heat for a large number of buildings; the barns and dairy buildings: and the hospital. Mr. George's residence is also in the Republic and in one wing of this is the library of about two thousand volumes.

The equipment throughout is simple but good. The purpose is to instil into the minds of the boys and girls a sense of economy and healthful living. The property is entirely free from debt and it is the policy of the trustees to work and expand as the funds permit, and not to mortgage the property which is now free from all encumbrances.
