THE CITY AND TOWN ALMSHOUSES.



Laws relatinff to Almihousas.

For the information of Overseers of the Poor, masters of
almshouses, and others concerned, certain laws relating to alma-
houses are here summarized.

The State Board of Charity is required to visit annually all
city and town almshouses, and to include in its Annual Report a
statement of their condition and management, with its sugges-
tions and reconmiendations relative thereto. (Revised Laws,
chap. 84, sect. 5.)

The master of every almshouse must keep a register, in a
form prescribed by the State Board of Charity, of the names of
the persons received or conmiitted, the cities or towns to which
they belong, and the dates of their reception and discharge.
(Revised Laws, chap. 30, sect. 17.)

Every inmate of an almshouse able to work shall be kept
diligently employed in labor. If he is idle and does not per-
form such reasonable task as is assigned, or if he is stubborn
and disorderly, he shall be punished according to the orders
and regulations established by the directors. (Revised Laws,
chap. 30, sect. 21. See also opinion of Attorney-General, given
to State Board of Charity, ]!fovember 21, 1904.)
