There were 29 in- mates in the Workhouse last week, as compared with 26 last year. A cheque for £ 363 2s. 3d. was signed, in payment of the first instalment of County Rate. THE HOUSE. The Master reported that, owing to the num- ber and nature of the sick cases in the women's part of the House, the Matron could not look after the patients properly without assistance from out side. Mrs. Hugh Jones, Aran Lane, had been going there daily since the 20th Janu- ary. Mrs. Parry said she had visited the House, and found there was sad need of some one to be in the House continually, to attend the sick, under the superintendence of the Matron. The Board confirmed the appointment, and fixed the remuneration at Is. 3d. per day. VISITOR'S REPORT. Messrs. J. Thomas, W. Richards, and Robert Jones, reported that they had visited the House that day, and found everything clean, as usual. One of the inmates complained that he was not allowed tobacco. BLANKETS FOR BEDS. Mr. J. Thomas proposed that the be-ds be sup- plied with blankets, instead of sheets and pro- vided with hot water bottles. Mr. Thomas, in reply to enquiries, said he had heard no complaint from any of the inmates against sheets, but thought blankets would be warmer, especially in case of old people. The lady Guardians stated the present sheets were not like the ordinary sheets, being much warmer. The motion was not seconded. The matter was consequently dropped. MOUNT LANE. Mr. William Richards enquired who were the owners of the road leading to the Workhouse, He observed, in coming to the meeting, that it was in a filthy state, and needed repairs. Mr. Richards was informed that several parties had a right of way along it. It was then resolved that the Clerk call the attention of Colonel Evans Lloyd; Mr. Evan Jones, Carnarvon Mr. Evan Jones, Bodrenig; and the Gas Company, to the road, and ask them to have it repaired. CHESTER INFIRMARY. ¡ It was resolved that the Clerk write to the Infirmary, to enquire whether they would ac- cept a patient suffering from St. Vitus Dance 1 and if so, that Lizzie Jones, a daughter of Hugh 1 Jones, Aran Lane, be sent there.
