MOUNTAIN ASM. STRANGR DRATH OF A CHILD.—On Mondav, at Rheolau Hotel, 1'enihiwc«iber, Mr. T. Williams, coroner, and a jury held an adjourned inquiry touching the deat h of Margaret Thom >s, a child three months nil. the daughter of John Thomas, of Rheolau street, Penrhiwceiber. It transpired that after the child had died the parents applied to Dr. Daniels, Dr. Williams' assistant, for a certifi- cate oî burial, but he refused to comply with the request, as he had an idea that the child had died from the effects of burns. An inquest was, there- fore. held on the Jhild on the 31st of December, which was adjourned until Monday, the 12th inst., in order that Dr. Evans, of Mountain Ash, and Dr. Jones (assistant to Dr. Williams, Mountain Ash) might examine the body. Both gentlemen, in their evidence at the adjourned inquest, corrobo- rated the evidence of Dr. Daniels. The parents, on the other hand, insisted that the child was not burnt at all. The iury returned a verdict in ac- cordance with the medical evidence. The case excited some interest in the locality. INQUKSI'.—On Monday, at. the police-station, Mr. T. Williams, coroner, held an inquiry respecting the death of the infant daughter of William Davies, of 86. Phillip-street, who had died suddenly in her mother's arms on Sunday morning. A verdict was returned to the effect that the child had died from convulsions. LOCAL ROARD.—This board met on Monday, Colonel Gray presiding. There were also present Messrs. J. Griffiths, T. Edwards, R. Evans, M. Morgan, G. Jones, U. Jones, W. L. Herbert, T. Yeo, and D. Davies. The surveyor was instructed, on the motion of Mr. G. Jones, seconded by Mr. D. Jones, to report by the next meeting whether the footpath leading from Gelliwrgan Farm to near Cwmclydach should be opened to the public. Dr. Evans, the medical officer, reported that two fresh cases of typhoid fever had occurred at 56, Glanlai- street, Penrhi wceiber. No deaths had taken place during the same period. A long discussion occurred on a proposal of the surveyor to erect a chamber for the purpose of flushing the sewers, the expense not to exceed £20. The question turned on the utility of charcual as a means of diffusing gas arising from sewers. The Chairman and Surveyor stated that that remedy was in- effectual. The latter advocated the plan of taking the gas to the top of the houses, as the fumes evaporated there much sooner. It was resolved that a rite of Is. in the £ should be made, which would realise £2,128 h. 2d. The rateable value of the district was £61.516 2s. 6d. The rate was, however, made on £42,561 5s. The discrepancy in the figures representing the rateable value and those on which the rate had been made was accounted for by the deductions that had been made on account of composition, the owners of small tenements in the district having contracted with the board to pay the rates whether the houses were occupied or not. The question of the site for the public fountain was deferred, no reply having been received from the Waterworks Com- pany. LORD ABBBDARRS RENT AUDIT.—On Tuesday and Wednesday the rent audit of Lord Aberdare's estate took place at Maesydderwen, the residence of his lordship's agent. On Tuesday the farmers and all occupiers paying above j610 rental paid their rents, and on Tuesday the occupiers of his lordship's land not reaching that sum rental. A good dinner was partaken of by the tenants on hoth days. Mr. M. Morgan occupied the chair on both occasions.
