The Sanitary Inspector (Mr Snook) reported that during the last month he had rna4e 61 inspections, 47 of which he found in a sanitary condition. He bad served 13 verbal notices and had four cases to report to the Council.

THE TALBOT ROAD. On the recommen dation of the Surveyor (Mr Hole) it was decided to leave the repair of the Talbot road, Berriew, in abeyance, pending a drop in the prico of iron, which has recently risen about 75 per cent.

Mr Tomley read the following letter from the Sanitary Inspector: Gentlemen,—At the present time I am in the unique position of being aprointd Divisional Surveyor to the Salop County Council and also District Surveyor to the Wigmore Rural District Council in succession to Mr A W Bowen (late Assistant Surveyor to Mr W P Hole) who has accepted an important appointment in Sussex at a salary of £225. Under these circumstances I beg to notify my early intention of resigning my post of Sanitary Inspector to your Council. Thanking you for the great kindness I have always met with at ycur hands, I remain, your obedient servant, J E Snook.—Tbe Chairman said he was sure they were all very sorry to learn that Mr Snook was about to leave them. Mr Snook bad done his duty most fairly, hiB reports being invariably accurate. TLe Council were generally fortun-ite in get,ting good mon as Sanitary Inspectors, but, unluckily, they were unable to keep them,—Mr Snook, in answer to a question, said he did not wi?h his resignation to take effect for some little time. He would like to take his successor rouud the district and point out to him the cases which required artention (the Chairman*. Hear, hear),-Vr Edwards Tr. ired that in the Council's advertisements for a successor to Mr Snook, a stipulation be inserted thau can. vassing would be considered a disqualiifcation. The Rev J Sawer seconded, and it was agreed to.- Mr E R Owen expressed it as his opinion that they should increase the salary to P,80 per annnm, and get a man who would stick to it." Now they were only giving them half-pav, and consequent!y, they were always on the look 'out for a new place. —The Chairman We can get plenty of good appli- cants at the old salary £ 52. Discission then dropped. ROADS AND HEDGES. A letter was read from Mr R E Edwards calling the Councils attention to the bad state of the road Irom Lower House to Llwyngarreg. The Surveyor was directed to ascertain whether the ror.d com- plained of was a public one or not.—John Thomas, Pentrenully complained in a letter that Mr Lewis, Rolver, had neglected to cut his hedges which pro- jected upon the road and were a source of annoy- auce to neighbouring farmer*.—Mr Hole waa in- structed to take steps to remedy this.
