A telegram from Albany publish-
ed on 24th January stated (says
the Melbourne "Times") that Dr.
Kennedy, of that town, in perform-
ing an operation for appendicitis,
found that the trouble had been
caused by "small pieces of enamel
which were probably swallowed in
food prepared in an enamel sauce-
pan." A well-known Melbourne
medical man, on being shown the
telegram, said: "I have had a simi-
lar experience. I have seen enamel
more than once taken out of the
appendix. Enamel ware is dan-
gerous when used for making por-
ridge, bread and milk, stews, or
for frying. The enamel chips off,
and is swallowed with food. The
old-fashioned iron saucepans or
better still, alluminium saucepans
should be used. They are far safer
than even the first quality enam-
elled ware."

Can Be Cured.
Dr. Derk P. Yonkerman, whose
discovery of a Cure for
Consumption has startled
the World.
Marvellous as it may seem after the centuries
of failure, a cure for consumption has at last
been found. After twenty years of almost
ceaseless research and experiment in his
laboratory, the now renowned specialist, Derk
P. Yonkerman, has discovered a specific which
has cured the deadly Consumption even in its
far advanced staged. In many cases, though
all other remedies tried had failed and changes
of climate were unable to check the progress of
the disease, this wonderful specific has conclu-
sively proved its power to cure.
Whatever your position in life may be
if you are in consumption, or suffer from
asthma, bronchitis, catarrh, or any throat or
lung trouble, this cure is within your reach
for it is a home treatment and need not
interfere in any way with your daily occupa-
tion. Prove for yourself its healing power.

Conference of Mill Mana-

(Saturday's "Courier.")
The conference held by the Com-
ptroller of Central Mills, at which
the managers of mills under his
control, with other officers of the
bureau, were present, completed
its programme of work yester-
day. It is said that the managers
of the mills as a whole are not on-
ly highly pleased with the project
of the Comptroller in calling them
together for consultation, but they
have expressed themselves as much
impressed with the subjects that
were brought forward for discus-
sion, and with the general aim of
the conference. Incidentally the
Comptroller appears to be equally
satisfied with the results of this
first meeting, and states that step
by step the whole system of the
mills will be placed upon the pre-
cise lines which he has in view,
and which obtain in other advance-
ed ??rar countries.
Very exhaustive discussions took
place on vital questions of the

sugar house, and also of the field;
and in addition matters such as
insurance and the requirements un-
der the Sugar Workers and Com-
pensation Acts were dealt with.
When yesterday's session was dra-
wing to a close certain of the man-
agers were commissioned to pre-
pare specific papers for next year's
managers' conference. For exam-
ple, the inspecting engineer is re-
quired to furnish a treatise for
or caloric value of megass and mo-
such as wood and coal. The super-

The fifth annual report from the
Sugar Experiment Stations and
the administration of the sugar

rector (Dr. W. Maxwell).
The opening paragraph of the re-
port is of an explanatory charac-

of the present state of
the sugar fund, which
statement will be found in the lat-

value The laboratory provided
itself with an excellent small three-
roller hand mill, with which to ex-
press the samples of juice, and in-
structions were given to the first
assistant by the director that,
during the sugar season, cane an-
alyses were to have priority of ot-
her work." Appended to this
statement is a table setting forth
the analyses made of sugar-canes
grown by farmers in the Bunda-
berg, Isis, Gin Gin, and other dis-
tricts.
Under the heading "Work of the
Experiment Stations," the follow-
ing appears:—"In the work con-
ducted at the Central Experiment
Station, Mackay, the Director Eas-
terby, who has charge of the field
and laboratory work, he being as-
sisted in the analytical work by
Mr. A. E. Anderssen. The director
could not speak too highly of the
careful responsible, and loyal man-
ner in which Mr. Easterby has ex-
ecuted the plans and methods of
the system of experimentation de-
termined upon. In addition to the
station work, Mr. Easterby has
visited the more northern sugar
districts during the year,
representing the director in the in-
districts during the year,
representing the director in the in-
spection of the sub-experiment sta-
tions, and in some matters con-
nected with manufacture at cer-
tain mills. Due to the addition of
work imposed upon the director by
the absolute control of six of the
Central mills, he has not been able
to make the annual visits of in-
spection to all the sugar districts,
and the assistant director has been
expected to carry out the inspec-
tions for him. Also, due to the
director's absence in Melbourne
during parts of the latter months
of the year, Mr. Easterby was re-
quested to generally formulate the
data of results of the Mackay sta-
tion for publication. Therefore,
