Abersychan Urban Samtaru District. 1.—It is desirable that the progressive sanitary work, which appears to have been lately interrupted in this district, should be again entered upon with as little delay as practicable, and systematically pursued throughout the different villages and hamlets. 2.—The Local Board should obtain the advice of a competent engineer as to the works of sewerage, both as regards the necessary extensions, the general arrange- ments for flushing and ventilation, and the disposal of the sewage without fouling the water-courses. 3.—Houses with deficient closet accommodation should be dealt with under clause 36 of the Public Health Act; and where it is impracticable to supply such houses with properly constructed water-closets, a dry system of excrement disposal, founded on the prin- ciples set forth in the Local Government Board's Re- port on the Means of Preventing Excrement Nuisances in Towns and Villages, should be adopted. This rpcommendatipn especially applies to such places as Varteg and the Tranch, 4.—The Local Board should adopt measures for en. suring that all water supplied by the Company is effi- ciently filtered before delivery. 5.—Steps should be taken without delay to provide Garndiffaith and the Tranch with an adequate water supply. 6.—The bye-laws relating to the ventilation of house- drains and cesspools, and to the prevention of damp. ness by eaves-troughing, &c., should be enforced. 7.—The recommendation made in the case of Ponty- pool (6) applies equally in this case. Amongst the matters with which the above recom- meudations are concerned, are some which could pro. bably be dealt with more efficiently and more economi- cally by the combined action of various sanitary autho- rities in the Afon Llwyd valley, than by each acting separately. Such, for instance, is the provision of hospitals and disinfecting apparatus; such also the adoption of which_ means of supervision may ensure the efficient filtration and purity of the public water supply; and such, especially, the disposal of the sewage in such way, whether by purification or diversion, as may put an end to the present wholesale pollution of the river. In all Engl? nd and Wales, of every 1000 persons, 513 are females, 487 are males. But in Pontypool sub-district the Jiales are 522, the females 478. Males, it need hardly be said, have invariably a higher death-rate than females.—In all Eng- land and Wales, of every 1000 persons, 511 are engaged in in- dustrial occupations and 198 in tigticijHure. But m Pontypool district (and the difference would be still more marked in the sub-district), the industrial population rises to (528, and the agricultural sinks to 127. i I tried with the aid of the Inspector of Nuisances to follow up this clue and:find how far this milk may have propagated the disease; for it may be noted that this lad was the lirst per. son known to have had sefirlet fever in the town of Pontypool. Inquiry was made at all the houses round about this milk. man's cottage as to where they got their milk, and whether they had had the fever. In seven milk was taken from this milkman, and in three of these, or 43 per cent., there was scarlet fever. In 84 milk was got from elsewhere, and in eight of these, thatis in only 9 per cent., was there foier
