INSANITATION AT HALKYN t DUKE'S AGENT'S VIGOROUS PROTEST. At Friday's meeting of the Holywell Rural District Council a kttcr was read from Mr. H. D. Lyi-cs, agent of the Duke of \Vedmini>'t>er's Flintshire estate, in which he stated they had again had an outbreak of infectious disease at Haikyn, which had necessitated the closing of the schools.

He did not intend to mince matters.

The Chairman: Are they clean ? The Inspector: Oh, Y£6; there are not more than two or three on the mountain that are anything but clean. All these children oome home from school with sore throats; it is noth- ing more than sore throat. The mothers say the schools are draughty. The inspector waa directed to malfiO a special amort on the matter,
