QUARANTINED PRISONER. I A curious dilemma arose on Monday at Tod- mo r den Court. A young carter named' William- Arthur Price has a wife who officiates; as servant in the small-pox hos-pital at Sourhall, where a number of patients are at present confined. He went to the institution drunk on Saturday night, and demanded to take his wife away. This he was told1 was impossible, as she was not dis- infectedi. He persisted, however, and when the door was closed against him, commenced kicking it, and broke a large) frosted window with his fist. The attendants rushed out, and a, violent struggle ensued before Price was secured and handed1 over to the police. The magistrates were about to commit him to prison without the option of a fine, when their clerk pointed out that it would! not be safe to send a man to a public prison after he had been in close contact with an infected) attendant. Dr. Thorpe, the medical officer, was Mlkedl his advice, and said it wouldl be a great risk to commfit him to gaoli under the circumstances. He suggested that the best course was to vaccinate the prisoiier and quarantine him for a fortnight in, the hospital. Price agreedi to this course, and in consideration, the magistrates dealt leniently with him, inflict- ing only a. nominal penalty of 5s. and costs, to I include the damage committed1. 1
