Taint of Pauperism. REMOVING IT BY DEGREES. The old but suggestive phrase, taint of pauperism," was used at the Forden Board of Guardians last Wednesday by Mr John Pryce Jones. The boarded-out children were struck off the relieving officers' books. Henceforth the Clerk will communicate with the foster parents, and ladies appointed by the Board will visit the children. The two relieving officers, however, were elected inspectors under the Infant Life Protection Act at a salary of .£10 a year each. Mr James Fortune, Welshpool, stated that during the last six months he had paid 130 visits and made 141 inspections of 22 children. There were two children in some homes. Mr W. T. Jones, Montgomery, reported 78 visibe to 38 children and 99 inspections. With regard to these boarded-out children," Mr Jones observed, the work is rather more serious than it appears on the face of it, because, if any of these children die, we have to report the death to the Coroner, even if the doctor gives a certificate. Therefore, if we neglect our duty, we are liable to be tried by jury. Therefore we have to be very careful with the work.
