——— SANITATION IN GLAMORGAN THE OUTBREAK OF TYPHOID. UNSANITARY STATE OF VARIOUS DISTRICTS. The quarterly meeting of the sanitary com- mittee of the Glamorganshire County Council was held on Friday at the county offices, Car- diff. Mr. Richard Morris presided. The quarterly report of the medical officer of health (Dr. W. Williams) was submitted, show- ing that two eases of small-pox had been noti- fioo. during the quarter—one from Margam and the other from Merthyr; 53 cases of diphtheria, and tliirty of croup. The former was most p jvaJent at Penartn(0.49), Cardiff Rural (0.45), and Merthyr Rural (0.30). Croup was most prevalent at Margam (0.28). There had been 525 cases of scarlet fever, as compared with 379 for the previous quarter, cases having been reported from all districts except Bridgend, Oaerphilly, Cowbridge, Cowbridge Rural, Gower, Pontardawe (E), and the parishes of Llanfedw and Rhydywern. There had been 220 I m-e,s of typhoid or enteric fever, as compared v-ith 176 for the previous quarter. Typhoid (the medical officer reported) had been epidemic I all over the county during the past quarter, but he did not think they had suffered more than any other county. It uppsared also from the report that there had been nineteen cases of puerperal fever, as compared with seven in the previous quarter, whilst the prevalence of in- fluenza was reported from seven districts. The general sanitary condition of the Ogmore and Garw district had been greatly improved. The scavenging of Nantymot'l and Tynewydd was reportc-d as unsatisfactory, the refuse being thrown by the inhabitants haphazard any- where. Typhoid fev?r had been epidemic at Fronweri row, Tynewydd, for the last three months. A dangerous nuisance still remamed unabated there, in the shape of an open sewer, though it waa the popular opinion of the inhabitants that this was the cause of the epidemic. Re- porting upon house accommodation in the Pontypridd Urban District, the medical officer 'stated that it was very rarely that a ventilatu,- shaft or drain fresh air inlet could be seen anywhere,, an omission which might lead to most disastrous results. The medical officer also reported that, if an isolation hospital were required anywhere, it was at Pontypridd, and he suggested that the jourty council should cause an inquiry to be made as to the necessity of such a hospital in accordance with the pro- visions of the Isolation Hospitals Act.—Dr. Williams's report was adopted, and the atten- tion of the local authorities was called to the points it contained. Communications were read from the Board of Agriculture pointing to the necessity of cases of rabies in cats and dopa be;ng verified by per- sons with special qualifications, and also sug- gesting the desirability of maintaining veteri- nary supervision of animals exposed for sale at pvblic markets. This was all the public busijess.
