THE CASES OF SMALL-POX AT BARRY. STRICT PRECAUTIONS TAKEN BY THE AUTHORITIES. Dr. Neale, J.P., the medical officer, in submitting the report of the sanitary inspector to the Health Committee at Cadoxton on Tuesday evening last, stated that two cases of small-pox arrived on the previous Tuesday night at Barry Dock on board the ship Hospodar, but the patients were at once removed to the infectious diseases hospital, where they were being carefully attended to and strictly isolated so as to prevent a possible spread. The ship had also been thoroughly disinfected, and the clothing likely to be contaminated were destroyed on board. One of the cases, Dr Neale said, was of a severe type, but the other was mildy Nothing was allowed to enter or leave the hospital except through the medium of the inspector, and no effort was spared to confine and stamp out the malady. The two men were being attended at the hospital by the caretakers, Mr and Mrs Da vies, and he would suggest that Mr Davies be paid 30s (the amount of wages which he generally earned), and Mrs Davies 10s for their services. It was hard work, for one of the men had been delirious, and required constant attendance, but the other was able to get up a little every day.-âThe Chair- man (Dr. O'Donnell) said he had visited the hospital, and found Mrs Davies was doing her utmost. He considered, therefore, she was entitled to 10s per week for her services, and would move a resolution to that effect.-Mr J. J. Williams seconded, and it was agreed to, Dr. Neale adding that the captain of the ship had expressed satisfaction at the matter in which disinfection had been carried out.
