WHAT MARKET INSPECTION OUGHT TO BE. THE Carmarthen Corporation has appointed the Superintendent of Police the Market Inspector and has allowed him the magnificent salary of do a year for that purpose. Now a Superintendent of Police— however high be his qualifications for his own particular duties—is not exav'ly the man whe should be Market Inspector and £ -3 a year is not by any means p. salary com- mensurate to the importance of the office. If by Market Inspection" is meant the preservation of order within the precincts of the Market, then the matter is essentially one for the police but that is not, by any means, the proper interpretation of the term. Where some hundreds of animals are accommodated on the occasion of a monthly market, a little technical knowledge is re- quired to enforce due sanitation and to prevent the propagation of infections diseases. But this is a mere detail compared to the supervision which is—or rather ought to be—exorcised over the public slaughter- house. It is nothing short of scandal that we have not some skilled inspection of the slaughter-house and also of the meat killed in the country, but sold in Carmarthen. The merest tyro is aware that there are many diseases which may exist in newly-slain animals, and which are communicable to human beings but which cannot be detected I by the unskilled eye. There are Inspectors of Meat in many largo markets, who are paid lara-e salaries for that work, and who have boen-like Sanitary Inspectors properly trained for their duties. Such an arrange- ment would be, of course; out of question in a small town like Carmarthen but if all appreciable addition—say £ 25 a year-Nvei-e made to the salary of the Inspector of Nuisances, it would be possible to secure the services of a man who had had some training for this class of work, as well as for the aanitary inspcction of dwelling-houses. The that" evideutly more nearly related to officer Sanitar.y Inspector than of an council who are quite as un- aware or tho exists • Lei)ce of sue]) things as tuberculosis and trici • n c Ulllesis as thev are or the dimensions or tho Hntr f Q f i.i i>i • Saturn or ot the number of the lleiodes. Bufc thero ar(j others who are fully aware of the dangers that lack in the- humble chop au(j succulent steak and it, therefore, behoves them to enlighten their more ignorant colleagues to a fuller appreciation of their c3 duties in this mutter.
