They were not badly nourished, but were in a dirty condition and thinlv clad. Inspector Grinter, N.S.P.C.C., said the woman drank and neglect- ed her home, being away for htftirs at a time. Her husband was a sailor, and the allowance paid her was 30s. 6d. a, week and 18s. per month from a Liability Fund. Her money thcreforo came to 35s a week.
