Canon Murrell-Wright was choaen chairman, notice was received from the city conneit that Mias Agnew had heeh reappointed a member of the board for a two-yecr term, following fa the report: In making a brief report dealing with the operation of the Gait Hot*, pital for the year 1917, the first thing to be noted ia that the Board were able to fitence without asking the city for any grant from taxes towards the current operating expenses. This was partly due to a considerable balance in hand at & beginning of the year. While the prevailing high prices j have largely increased the cost of all supplies causing the expenditure to be $10,000 higher than the previous year, the hospital charges have not been increased. For the coming year however, the Board will have to ask the city for an appropriation of four thousand dollars or Increase the charges to patients, and aa sixty per cent, of the patients come from outside the city it would hardly seem fair that the expense should be levied against the tax payerb in the city, A new heating plant was installed during the year at a cost of $17,000. This necessitated the building of a new boiler room' and chimney and Installing two 40 h.p. Return Tubular Boilers. All the buildings are now on one heating system- This capital expenditure was financed by the city and the interest charged up to the hospital. New Matron After two years of very faithful and acceptable service, Miss Wootton resigned as Matron and was succeeded by Miss McClarty, to whose excellent administration the Board paid the following tribute: "Miss S. McClarty. " Supt. Gatt Hospital: "At its first meeting in the year, the Board desires to express to you its sincere appreciation of the manner in which you have so ably filled the position ot superintendent. "It is a pleasure to record this confidence in your ability and general management of the hospital. Since your arrival to take up this position in July last the Board has heard nothing but praise of youfr efficient administration. � "We would ask you to convey to the hospital staff the appreciation of the board for their co-operation with you." The hospital grounds were greatly improved by laying; out a .lawn and circular drive to the front entrance. The training school has been well maintained and there is at present the Christian church Red Cross rooms tola need of more Red so it is hoped that every lady who can will be present. The annual meeting ot the Ladies' Aid of the First Baptist church was held Jan. 17, 1918, The reports for the year were ratified and the following officers were elected: President, Mrs. Roosa; vice-president, Mrs. Williams; secretary, Mrs. McMillan: assistant, Mrs. Leavttt; treasurer, Mrs. M, J.

This was decided at a meeting of the commissioner's yesterday, and Commissioner Grace Will send an order to the Acme Truck Co., Cadillac, Mich., for a two ton truck to cost $4,046. This Is the best kind of a truck for the purpose. Commissioner Orace estimates that by its purchase and use, the eijfy will save a large amount in its scavenging bill, as the dump carts are slow and consume a vast amount of time in making the rounds.

The daily average of patients in the hospital for the year was forty-seven. The total number of patients treated was 1200. The operating rooms, the two large sun rooms and some private wards were re-decorated. This work of brlghtenjng up the general appearance of the hlspital is being taken up systematically. One store-room for drugs and another for groceries was fitted up in the basement, and now, having the storage capacity, a considerable saving is effected in being able to buy in largji quantities. A new dispensary is also beiug prepared for near the drug store room, and the present dispensary will be turned into an X-ray room, in which some of the doctors on the staff are installing a modern up-to-date X-ray outfit. AH these improvements make for a more efficient care of the sick.
