i During the course of his recent visit - to the Auckland province the Minister 7in charge of the Public Health Departmfen (Hon. I). Ruddo) inspected the : Cambridge sanatorium fjor Iconsump- _ tives. "The sanatorium," he told a .'Tost" reporter, "fully bore out the , opinion I had formed. Its situation on the hill immediately behind" > the town of | Cambridge is ideal. It overlooks practically the whole of the Waikato plain, and is sufficiently elevated to be well j . out of a possible fog. The buildings are extensive, and in most cases are ."-boUted from each other. The shelters, | picturesquely situated, are all over the' .Ground, which comprises an area of many acres. The larger proportion of them accommodate only one patient, but .there are a few corridor shelters in which lour or five are accommodated. The farm consists of hilly land, most of it : Unimproved, but steps have been taken to bring a good deal of it* into cultivation. "The management," added the Minister, "is capable and much appreciated. I interviewed many of the patients, and they expressed" themselves as more than pleased at the treatment and care that they experienced in the 'institution. At present there are about .sixty inmates—almost the full capacity :-of the-institution."
