    The remarkable increase in the last two years is noteworthy. 
    The above figures refer, it will be seen, to winter admissions only. It may be well, therefore, if I append a further return, showing the number of Vagrants admitted to the casual wards of the same Unions on the 1st of July in each of the years 1890-1894.
