FORDEN BOARD OF GUARDIANS. Colonel Twyford in the chair.—The C'erk read a communication from the Local Government Board, containing an extract from the report of Mr Bir- cham on the occasion of his recent visit to the House, which has already appeared in our Culumns, and which suggests the provision of further accom- modation at the House,—The Chairman said that they agreed that the subject should stand over to see what effect the detention of the tramps for two nights might have on the number of agrants.—The Master, on being called in, stated that the number of tramps had decreased a good deal. Formerly they had about 27 or 28 tramps in one night, but since the new system had been adopted they had not had more than twelve.—It was decided on the motion of Mr E. R. James, that the Clerk should reply to the Local Government Board to the effect that as regarded the labourcells, they provided labour in addition to the breaking of stones. Seeing that the vagrants had decreased in number, the accom- modation at the House was sufficient for the pre- sent.—A further letter from the Local Government Board stated that that Board had allotted the sum of £12 per annum to Miss Bright as industrial trainer.—The Clerk stated that he had received from the Poor Law Local Government Officers' Mutual Guarantee Society, a bond for £250 for Mr Lewis, assistant overseer, Llandyssil.—The medical officers, Dr Waters and Dr Morgan were appointed public vaccinators for their respective districts.— The Clerk announced that the duration of the appointment of the nurse who received the office temporarily three months ago had now expired. The matron, on being called in, gave the nurse an excel- lent character, and it was decided that she should be re-appointed for a fortnight, and in the mean- time, the doctor's certificate should be obtained.— Mr W. Pryce (vice-chairman), expressed the loss which the Union had sustained in the death of Col Harrison. When he resigned the chairmanship of the Board, they knew the precarious state of his health, but cherished a lingering hope that he would be spared to come amongst them again. It seemed a remarkable providence that that day monta they adjourned that Board in order to attend the rejoicings in connection with the coming- of-age of his elder son. In the death of the Colonel the county had sustained an irreparable loss, and Montgomery would especially feel his death. He begged to move that the Clerk write to Mrs Harrison and family, expressing the great sorrow which the Board felt and their sincere sympathy with them in their bereavement.—The Chairman thought that perhaps no one could propose that motion better than their Vice-Chairman, who had so long been connected with the Chairman of that Board, or else he would have performed that duty himself. He had known Col Harrison for a good many years and he could only state that everything which had been said there on that and former occasions respecting that gentleman had met with the approbation of every member of the Board. He was sure that they all shared in the grief that had befallen Mrs Harrison and family. He seconded the motion.—Mr E. R. James and Mr E. H. Morris, in feeling terms supported the resolution, the latter gentleman stating that the gentlemen in the county would do well to follow the example of Col Harrison. They would find that it would be to their own advantage and the benefit of those around them.
