Legal Proceedings.—In April a summons was obtained against
Mr. W. Bennett for keeping swine so as to be a nuisance in Mount
Pleasant Road, and an order was obtained for the abatement of the

order, and defendant was ordered to pay 40s. and costs.
In the end the pigs were removed and the keeping of them
In the general work of the department no further legal proceedings
were found necessary, a verbal request or informal intimation being
generally sufficient to secure attention from owners or occupiers, and in
special cases a personal interview sufficed to satisfy them that our
requirements are necessary and reasonable.
