December 1, 1900. East Suffolk County Council met on Tuesday, when it was decided that the county analyst should be given a retaining fee of 10 pounds 10 shillings per annum, in order that the police might have his advice and direction as to what samples to take for analysis. Mr. Moore urged that greater attention should be given to shops in the villages. Samples had been chiefly taken in the larger towns, but the council might rely upon it that in the towns competition was so keen tradesmen endeavoured to sell the best articles they could, and as a rule these articles were free from adulteration. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
