Aberdeen Royal Asylum.— Extensive damage was caused by fire breaking out in the roof of the succursal asylum at Glack, which is some twenty miles from Aberdeen. About 100 patients are accommodated there, mostly of the quiet class, who are employed on the estate, which was acquired some ten years ago. Fortunately the water supply was ample, and, the safety of the patients having been secured, the lower storey was saved from destruction. The staff earned high commendation in having dealt so efficiently with the catastrophe. We trust that the chapter of accidents from fire in the Aberdeen Asylum is now closed. It has been most unfortunate of late years in this respect.
