The situation of the hospital at Wc«t Quay had proved convenient for the taking there of *"ooeht here in ahipa suffering from infectious -- There vu, however, merely a nurse employed at the hospital, thia peraon taking charge of the premises ; but sJl the caaea, from tho time of the eatab-

Esuper patients came under the care of the Board of uardiana. a note to that effect occurring in connection with the Act which had been quoted. The Officer of Health had no doubt ao far the care of the whole town, and in the event of an epidemic breaking out in the house would bsve a right to come in there and have the caaea isolated
lutely necessary to receive any infectioua caaea which might occur elaewhere ; and he thought nothing would be better than for the Guardians to have a house for the purpose independent of the Workhouse, and in a convenient and aalubrioos part of the town. Then the warda now appropriated to infectioua caaea—only two or three of which they had had during tho past three years—could be used for the accommodation of imbeciles, and thna effect a considerable saving to the ratepayers, because many imbecilea could then be maintained at a much cheaper rate than waa the case at present It would lie impossible to keep up this hospital at West Quay for the purposes for which It waa intended if they Kitted the pauper class there, becauao it waa with the greatest difficulty that they could get people to go there as it was. and those who went there were W»ng patients—The Depctt-Prejiidint said dd move a proposition to the effect that the

M'Intvre, Q.C.i defendants.
The plaintiff, who was 33 years of age, waa formerly
and seed merchanta at Southampton. On the 23rd of February tho plaintiff waa walking with a young man who had formerly been a acholar of hia, and their way led them paat the warehouse of the defendants. This "" between three and four in the afternoon, and at time a aack of oats waa being hoisted by a pulley chain from a cart to the top lloor of the warehouse. Th# shoulder of the aack broke away, and the remainder of it fell and struck the plaintiff upon the head and shoulder. He did not fall, out waa bent down, and only saved himself from falling by putting such pressure """"5 hia umbrella that it was broken. Hia companion struck though not seriously. The consequences to the plaintiff were moat serious, as they included paralysis on tho left side of the face and in the right arm and leg. Ho tried for a time to continue his school, but waa ordered to abstain from work: and his school so fell off that at length ho sokf the good will of it for £75; and since then he had not been able to do work of any kind. Tho plaintiff and hia companion, Mr. Gain, corroborated this statement, and thoy poaitively denied that any warning waa given to them before the accident. The medical evidence waa that the plaintiff's condition aroao from concussion of the brain ; and that there waa aome lesion or other Injury at the base of the brain. There

It might not be illegal to hoist a sack of corn over a iiublio footway, but when such a thin? was done there should be special precautions to provsnt accident.
