DEATHS FROM STARVATION.
Doctor Kirkpatrick reported that some cases of dysentery still continued to show themselves in the house. Two male paupers were admitted in the early part of the week. On their admission they were dying of inanition and cold, and only survived a few hours after admission. It was also reported that a female child in one of the sick wards had been seriously injured by the incautious application of a hot brick applied by the ward woman for the purpose of relieving pain in the bowels. The flannel in which the brick was wrapped was burnt, and the child seriously injured.
The two women attending in the ward were ordered to be removed.
