The method of the heating of the new war4s at the hospital has not jet been decided upon. The JT.'rchitect recently advocated that the heating should be dons by electric radiators. Dr. Valentine, hearing of this, immediately wrote drawing the Board's attention to the following extract from a journal on hospital economics:—"The electric radiator is put completely out of court for heating wards by reason of its enorm3us ex-. pense."

The Board this afternoon referred the communication to the Finance Committee.
