THE ESCAPE OF "DAVID HARDY." Mr Allanson Picton reported that a lunatic (known as David Hardy ") had absconded from the House. He was found after a search, in the pouring rain, on the mountains in the parish of Dwygyfylchi, but when asked to come home lay down on the grass, and said that he would have to be carried home. [Laughter]. It was not known where he was now, but the police had been communicated with. He (Mr Picton) supposed that the Board was liable for the man's safety. The Chairman asked the Clerk whether that was so. The Clerk said that the Board was liable if the man was a lunatic. The Chairman But is he ? The Clerk Well, we class him as such to keep him in. [Laughter]. A TREAT FOR THE ADULT INMATES. Request was received from the Ladies' Com- mittee to be allowed to give the adult paupers in the House a treat, in the form of a day's outing. The Master (Mr Edward Jones) pointed out that if the adult paupers were taken out anywhere it would be necessary to spend a sum of £6 15s on shawls and bonnets for the women in order to make them look decent. Mr Caraher objected to the suggestion being put into effect, as it was not for the Board to create envious feelings among people by clothing these paupers in gaudy attire, in spite of which everybody would know who they were. Alderman Hugh Hughes thought that if the inmates had not suitable attire the question should be considered, and on his motion it was referred to the House Committee, the request of the Ladies' Committee being granted with thanks.
