"NANTWICH. BOARD OF GUARD! ANS.-The fortnightly meeting was held on Saturday Mr. W. J. Dutton in the chair.-Mr. Wallace Luinb reported on the visit a deputation bad paid from that Board to the Asylum at Upton. They found the place in a perfect state of order and in possession of all the latest improvements, and not a smgle complaint had been made. He regretted to say that the number of inmates from the Nantwich Union was constantly increasing year by year. There were 108 patients from that, union, 80 males and 88 females. It was in 1884 that on his proposition a committee was appointed to visit the asylum, and at that time the sum paid for the maintenance of lunatics from that union was 91.756 3s. 4d. but since then there had been an enormous increase, the amount paid for the year ending December, 1903. being £ 3,110 2s 5d. The increase in the cost per head for maintenance was due largely to the improved dietary of the inmates Mr. Jackson said that the increased expenditure might not be due to more insane people being sent from that union, but probably was to be found in the cost of the, improved dietary. He hoped that they might not take it that insanity was on the increase in the union.-Mr. M. Lea It is though there s no mis- take about that.
