Corowa Hospital.— At a meeting of the board of directors it was decided to request Mr. Evans, sewerage engineer and inspector, to prepare plans and estimate of cost of sewering the buildings at the hospital and to request the Hospitals Commission to have the work carried out. It was reported that the memorial gates to be erected at the entrance to the hospital grounds in memory of the late Hon. R. T. Ball, M.L.A., had arrived, and the inscription to be placed on the tablet was left in the hands of the chairman and secretary to arrange.
