CARDIFF BOARD OF GUARDIANS. EDUCATION IN THE WORKHOUSE. The usual weekly meeting of the Cardiff Board of Guardians was held in the Worirhouse. Cardiff, on Saturday, Mr. C. W. David in the chair.—The Master of the House reported that during the week there had been 22 admissions, 29 discharges, and two deaths, leaving 474 in the house, an in- crease of 32 on the corresponding week of last year. The number of vagrants relieved was 30, against 46. A girl aged fifteen years, an inmate of the workhouse, received the consent of the guardians to go out to service. In reply to a question put to her, she said she could neither I read nor write.—Mr. Plain remarked that the girl was born in the workhouse, and it was an extraor- dinary thing that after having been an inmate for fifteen years she was not able to read or write.— Mr. Ramsdale said it was not creditable to the board that a girl should be sent out so devoid of education.—Mr. Jacobs said the girl might have a dull intellect, but she could not be so dull as to be unable to learn to read and write. Such a state of things was very sad, and it assumed a more serious complexion when they remembered that similar cases had before occurred.—Tlie Chairman said he sympathised with the remarks made, and trusted that nothing of the kind would occur again. It was most lamentable.—The Master of the Schools reported that during the week th^re had been no admissions, and one discharge, leaving 213 in the house, a decrease of ten on the same week of the preceding year.—The Clerk reported that during the week out-door relief had been administered to 2,628 persons, at a cost of £269 10s. 4-d., showing a decrease in the number of 302, and in the amount of £2017>1, 5d. as compared with the same week of last year. The visiting committee presented a report, which contained the following clauses, viz.:—"The committee con- sidered the question of deficiency in hospital ac- commodation referred to them by the board, and appointed a sub-committee, consisting of the chair- man, vice-chairman, Messrs. F. G. Evans, Thomas Evans. T. W. Jacobs, R. O. Jones, and J. Ramsdale, to inquire more fully into the matter, and to obtain from the medical officer classified returnsof the patients under treatment. The committee con- sidered the application of Mr. Greenhnlgh, master of the workhouse, referred to them by the board, and are unanimously of opinion that his salary should be increased from £100 to £130 per annum. —The Chairman moved the adoption of the report, which was agreed to. This concluded the business.
