RURAL SANITARY AUTHORITY.

Mr. J. Gough in the chair.

SMALL-POX AT TINGEWICK. — Both the Medical Officer and the Inspector of Nuisances reported on a case of small-pox in this village. It appears that some time since Mr. Benjamin Ridgeway, a resident in the village, went on a visit to his son in London. Soon after his return home, he sickened, and ultimately showed signs of having the small-pox. The officers adopted the usual measures of disinfectants, and a man living next door, named Smith, was advised to remove to other quarters, so that the two houses, which stand upon a piece of waste ground, and are the property of the two occupiers, might be entirely isolated. Smith, however, declined to accede, and unfortunately on Wednesday it was discovered that he had the small-pox, but in a more dangerous form than Ridgeway, and all hopes of his recovery were abandoned. He died on the following day from suppressed small-pox. His wife had now fallen ill with the disease, and the Medical Officer of Health at once telegraphed to London for a nurse from one of the small-pox hospitals, who arrived by the next train. A difficulty now arose as to the burial of the body of the deceased man Smith. All efforts to procure assistance in the village failed, though several persons had previously had the disease. Even the man who had been employed to wait upon Ridgeway, declined helping in the burial of Smith. A coffin was, however, made and sent to the cottage, and the Medical Officer of Health and the Inspector of Nuisances then came over to Buckingham to engage men to help with the burial. After meeting with many refusals, they were successful in obtaining two men named W. Owen and S. Yarrington. On their arrival they found that nothing had been done towards effecting the burial; but at length Mr. Wm. Smart courageously went to their assistance, and the body having been placed in the coffin downstairs, the narrow winding stair-case preventing the usual means, it was placed on a truck and taken to the churchyard, where Mr. Smart’s aid was again called int requisition ere the coffin could be lowered into the grave, while the Rector read the Burial Service. The two men then returned to Buckingham, where they buried their clothes, as did also Mr. Smart, at Tingewick. DeAth, (Medical Officer of Health). said this outbreak of the disease had brought forcibly to his mind, and also to the minds of many others, the suggestion he had so often made to the Sanitary Authority, of providing a certain number of houses in the Union whither infectious cases could be taken immediately on an outbreak. His suggestion had been ridiculed, but he contended than as he did now again that as a cottage here and there in the Union could be rented for a trifle, as it were, the Sanitary Authority would do well to rent one or two. Had there been such a house in Tingewick, for instance, the probability was that Ridgeway’s would have been the only outbreak, whereas now they had one death and the deceased man’s wife had fallen.—In the discussion which ensued it was mentioned that a man who had lodged with Smith had since left the cottage.—The officers said that they were sorry to admit that despite the warnings they had given, this was not the only case of carelessness and indifference on the part of relatives and neighbours.—It was decided to allow Owen and Yarrington 30s. each, for their services at the burial of Smith. Also that the two officers should be allowed to use their own discretion as to how they should proceed in the future. The question was asked as to whether it was not the duty of the relieving officer, Mr. Fellows, to attend the burial; but it was argued that no order had been given in the case, and consequently Smith was not a pauper.
