I NEW JUSTICE OF THE PEACE FOR MONTGOMERYSHIRE. The Montgomeryshire Express, of Tuesday, contains the following biographical sketch of Dr. Harold Palmer, a native of this town, who has just been placed on the commission of the peace for Montgomeryshire There arc few better known or more likeable men in the county than Dr. Harold Palmer, of Newtown. A native of Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, the Doctor was ed- ucated at the Grammar School there, and subsequently at Taunton. His professional study began at Cambridge University and was finished at the London Hospital. He won an anatomical scholarship at London, and after qualifying for the profession was appointed an honorary house surgeon and medical officer at the London Hospital. In 187S he came to Newtown as assistant to the late Dr. Hall whom he subsequently joined in partner- ship. In Newtown he has remained ever since, and his very extensive practice is more eloquent proof of his professional skill and personal popularity than anything we could say of him. For nineteen years he has been medical officer of health to the Urban District Council, and the many appreciable improvements that have from time to time been effected in the interests of the public health were very largely owing to his zeal for sanitary perfection. The effect of these improvements is evidenced in the reduction of the death rate by more than half what it was at the time of his appointment. For a longer period the Doctor has been prominently connected with the management of the Montgomeryshire Infirmary in which he evinces the heartiest interest, and has been its senior surgeon for many years. In his pro- fessional capacity he holds numerous other responsible posts, and was recently appointed a Commissioner of Taxes. A Liberal and a Churchman, Dr. Palmer enjoys the respect of all classes in society, and there is certainly no worthier recipient of magisterial honours."
