Jechryd bridge, which connects the coun- i of Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire, is small to allow the fioods to pass beneath, I re-building the same is uader consider- )n by the Public Works Committee of the anty Council. There is another at the bot- i of Windy Hall hill that requires atten- a, but that is only the link which joins odwick and Fishguard, and some mutton- ids would fain see that ugly little pass do < ancient Jericho feat of falling down.

There bad also en a considerable reduction in the amount expenditure, which he thought was very tisfactory in view of the improvements they d made in the Workhouse, &c., the adoption a more expensive dietary table, &c. The spector quoted a number of statistics show- ;g the Haverfordwest Union occupied a very jrourable position, and said he thought the uardians who had retired had done good )rk.
