COLLECTION OF DUST.
Parish of Lewisham.
For some years past I have drawn attention in my annual
reports to the difficulty of disposing of the dust, and it is now
three years since any was sold, from which time until this last
year I have ln-eii able, with some difficulty, to find free shoots.
During last year, however, the Hoard have been obliged to pay
a small sum for shooting some of the dust, and at the present
time there appears to be every probability of having to expend a
considerable sum for the disposal of the dust, ashes, &c., during
the current year.
The horses and harness in the Blackheath and Lewisham
Division were supplied by Mr. G. Sabin, at 4s. 9d. per horse per
day; in the Sydenham and Forest-hill Division Mr. W. Stimpson
supplied the horses and harness at 4s. Gd. per day,—the Board
finding carts, men and boys. The following Table shews the
manner in which the dust was disposed of:—
