WHITCHURCH BOARD OF GUARDIANS. A meeting of the Whitchurch Board of Guardians was held on Friday, Mr. R. P. Ethelston presiding.—The relieving officer's report shewed that the out-relief during the fortnight was as follows :—First week, 167 out- paupers, relieved at a cost of 914 11s. 2d.; second week, 158, at 913 14s. The correspond- ing period for last year was: First week, 149, at.213 14s. 4d.; second week, 143, Xll 19s.— Mr. W. H. Smith That is a serious increase.— The Relieving Officer: That is explained by the fact that we have had several large families in receipt of onti-rolief. The Master's books shewed that during the past past fortnight there had been 67 inmates in the house, against 82 for the corresponding period of last year, and that 101 vagrants had been relieved during the same period, against 139 last year.—Miss Ambrose (children's attendant) wrote stating that, in view of another appointment as assistant nurse at Ormskirk, she wished the Board to accept a month's notice of retirement. Applications to fill the vacancy were laid before the Board from Miss Mary Gill, of the Woodhouse, Whitchurch, and Miss Martha Wilson, Combermere Kennels.— Miss Gill appeared before the Board, and subse- quently, on the motion of Mr. Langley, seconded by Mr. Spencer E. Smith, it was decided that Miss Gill should be taken for a month on trial.—An application for the post of nurse was laid before the Board from Miss E. Kay, of Quoisley Brook, near Wem.—The appli- cant appeared before the Board, and testi- monials were presented from Dr. Watkins (medical officer), Dr. Leader, of Wem, and others, and on the motion of Mr. W. H. Smith, seconded by the Rev. R. B. Faulkner, it was decided that the applicant should be asked to come for a month.—On the motion of Mr. G. S. Morgan, seconded by Mr. Spencer E. Smith, it was decided to allow X3 per annum for nurse's uniform. The question of beer money was raised, and the Chairman said that as the salary with beer money and uniform would come to 230 129. for the first year, it should be put in that way. He thought it would be simpler, and less complicated.—Mr. Langley, Mr. Topham, and others said this was an old custom, and the Clerk said that to his knowledge it was usual in other similar institutions. The applicant was eventually called in, and agreed to the terms offered by the Board, engaging herself for a month on trial, to commence at once.— The Chester County Asylum wrote stating that the rate of maintenance for the quarter was 7s. 7Jd. per head per week, against 7a. 7d. during the previous quarter. The Local Government Board wrote stating that X270 19s. lid. had been paid to the credit of the Board as the half-yearly instalment under the Agricultural Rating Act.—Orders in reference to the new dietary regulations were laid before the Board, and it was decided that a com- mittee to consist of the Chairman, Mr. Langley, Mr. Pearson, and Mr. W. H. Smith should be appointed to consider this matter and report to the Board. The Local Government Board wrote sanctioning the appointment of Dr. Bernard Watkins as deputy medical officer.
