Formerly regarded as incurable it is now frequen.tly arrested or even cured by suitable treatment." In sup iort of this the interesting case (to the medical world) of F. W. Byrnes, of Toolern, near Melton, may be cited. This young gentleman some time ago, 'became a victim to galloping consump tion. The disease also affected his hip so that he could not use one leg. He was troubled with a persistent cough and spitting, shortness of breath, pains in the chest and shoulders, los...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
--G------?.... "An Auatralian IMan" writes on the belated question of British suzerainty over the Transvaal, contending that it was entirely abrogated by the 1SS4 treaty. We have no space for a dis cussion on the subject, which is but one phase of the larger question of whether Britain or Bocr is to be su preme in South Africa. The invasion of British territory by the Boer has settled, ar a controversial point, the question of suzerainty and all the so phisticated arguments with which it is interwoven. If, however, there was no such thing since SS84, as contended by our correspondent, it is at least singular that the last Boer communica tion demanded its abolition as a con dition to the granting of the franchise,

TELEPHONE EXCHANGE. GORMANSTON AND NORTH LYELL. QUEENSTOWN, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 9 January 1900
TELEPHONE EXCHANGE. GORMANSTON AND NORTH LYELL. QUEENSTOWN, Monday. The chairman of the Chamber of Commerce (Mr. W. P. Calder) wired to Mr. H. V. Bayly in reference to' the de lay in connection with the Gormanston and North Lyell conhection with the telephone exchange, that being the un derstanding on0 which subscribers joined, an extra £1 per year being asked. 'The reply received stated that the switchboards' were 'ordered from England last April, and that when the exchanges at North Lyell and Gorman ston were complete connection can only be given at an increased cost, This is the reply given after guaranteeing subscribers that connection should be given and taking their money. The places are distant only three miles from Queenstown, and the exchange is useless without them. The result is that most subscribers state they will not pay up any more, so that the ex change will become a white elephant and the heavy expenditure incurred a dead loss to the country.
