A NUISANCE:


       Mr. DAVIS called attention to the existing nuisance with regard to the
closets at the Boy's School.
       It was agreed that the Inspector's attention should be drawn to the
matter.

***

THE BREWERY CHIMNEY
A DANGER TO THE PUBLIC.


       Mr. DAVIS said that the Brewery chimney was a great source of danger
to the people of Parton. The Parton Brewery Company's own employees were
frightened to go through the gate. They could see through it, both the new and the
old. The chimney was not half completed. When the man was getting out of the
chimney he knocked some of the bricks down. (Laughter.)

       The Chairman: It is a good joke.

       Mr. DAVIS: There is no joke about it - (laughter) - it is a danger to
the public.

       Continuing, Mr. DAVIS said he begged to move that the attention of the
Rural District Council be drawn to the Brewery chimney, as it was a change to
the public.

       Mr. PHILLIPSON said if it was a source of danger he had pleasure in
seconding the motion, and this was agreed to.
