Board of Supervisors.
A meeting of the Board of Supervis?
ors was held, pursuant to adjournment,
on the 10th inst. The business trans?
acted consisted of a settlement with the
superintendent of the poor for the year
ending July 1st, 1885. By the annual
report of the superintendent it appears
that the number of inmates in thepoor
honse during said year was larger, and
the settlement showed a corresponding
increase in the expense of maintaining
the house; in round numbers; the
entire costs was S2.200.00. It is
remarkable however, that in a pop?
ulation of 26.000, so little is required to
provide for the poor.
The road law passed by the Legisla?
ture at the session of 1SS3-84 for the

the law were not fully completed by the
Board and until they are the present
surveyors of the roads are in no way le

keep on in the discharge of their duties.
