ANNUAL TOWN REPORT



In past years I have urged upon parents the necessity of providing
the Town Clerk with the names of their children in order that the Re-
_cords of Birth may be complete.

This effort has met with some degree of success but the results are
still far from satisfactory. Look over the list of births for 1915 and
see the number reported without any name. These records are not
complete and for future reference are practically valueless. Unless
you wish your child to go through life with no means of proving the
date of his birth, so far as the Town Records are concerned, except by
a number, you should give this request the attention which it .de-
serves.



S. W. GOODWIN, Town Clerk.

Report of the Building Inspector

To the Selectmen of the Town of Norway :

I herewith submit my second annual report for the year ending
January 1, 1916.

There being not much building in town just now, being mostly I'e-
pairs which have been done very well as far as fire protection gdcs.

(I hope that business will start soon so the next inspector can get
enough to pay for being qualified.)

Eespectfully submitted, ,

H. E. MIXER, Building Inspector.



14 ANNUAL TOWN REPORT



Report of the
Board of Health



To THE Selectmen of Norway:

Gentlemen: — The Local Board of Health submit the following:

During the past year the town has been fortunate, for it has
been spared the infliction of an epidemic of any character. Only a
few cases of contagious diseases have been reported, and they are as
follows: Tuberculosis, two cases, typhoid fever, two cases, diphtheria,
one case, also a few cases of measles and whooping cough.

Tlie number of nuisances reported has been smaller than usual and
these have been removed without any trouble.

The number of ' ' colds ' ' so called could be reduced materially, if
those so afflicted would avoid public places, and the parents of chil-
dren suffering from this condition would keep them out of school dur-
ing the continuance of the disease.

We suggest that the school authorities instruct the teachers to send
home all such children as they find with this malady.

Eespectfully submitted,

H. L. BARTLETT, M. D., Sec,
DENNIS PIKE,
SIMEON HARRIMAN,

Local Board of Health.
