Nurse Lewis wrote declining to accept that stun, ,xnd stating that she maat be paid the earn of £ 1 as first mentioned. It was pointed out that the remuneration under » the Midwifery Board was l(ks. 6d. a. case, and so throughout the loeality.-In reply to Lord Dynevor as to the number cf ea-ses attended by her last yeir, it was stated that it was only one, but that she attended • for two hours a day for nine (layi).IL was decided that YLr.,3e Lewis be again written to-?-Lofd Dynevor reponed that the com- ,mittee which had been appointed to oon- eider tho" question of heating the Board room had met. They had four tenders be- fore them. The highest was 9112 and the lowest L54 16s. The latter was from Mr. Pritoliajrd Davids, Ammanford,—ilr. D. W. Lewie moved, and it was i<w,ndod by Mr. L. lq. Powell, that the Litt-er be accepted.— Lord Dynevor said that the way Mr. Daviee intended to lay his pipes did not meet with the approval of the committee, and it was decided that he should vary hie plan for too which Mr. Herbert satel would be more .feadible. Pour radiators would be put in the Board room, as well aa radiaiora in pihor parte of the building. The boiler w-omld be fed by rain water, as they were agreed Llindiio water would be too hard for the purpose. They would get the water from tll2 roof. He moved the adoption of the report, and Mr, L. N. Powell seconded.— Lord Dynevor thought Mr. Herbert aa archi- tect ehoukl be paid hi.6 out-of-pocket ex- penss,.

Williams was very glad that the OOmmittee recommended low pressure. He had had esperienoe of heating by high prweuxe in school, where they had the sys- tem in vogue. High pressure might erack the pipes or put the place on fire. The low -> pireesure systenn gave regular heat.
