The Master sought the advice of the Guardians, with regard to a female inmate, named Evans, from Llandeusant. From the master's statement, it appears that the person in question, who is a very strong, powerful looking person, as soon as he turns his back "takes the house by storm, and generally acts as she pleases." That morn- ing she took the libel ty of putting in an ap- pearance before the B ar(I without permission.— The Chairman warned her, and intimated that if she continued her misbehaviour she would be brought before the magistrates, and dealt with in tile usutt way. -MrPowell,leflreys eii(juire(I how it was that no school attendance officer was ap- pointed at Cynghordy school.-The Chairman re- plied that if they were desirous of having one the official could be appointed, but lie pointed out that his salary would be a local charge to the parish of Llanfairarybryn. This ended the business.
