Cure of Cancer. 'Remarkable results have been achieved (says the Goulburn 'Herald') in two local cases of cancerous growth by the use of molasses. In one ease, where th'e cure seems to be permanent, the patient, Mrs. Wilson of North Goulbum, was operated upon in Sydney on September 10, 1905, and iier condition was such that the doctors refused to complete the operation, stating that she could only live a few months at best, and that she might die before reaching Goul burn. On her return Mrs. Wilson commenced taking mo lasses, and the result was phe nomenal. A severe cough passed away, and she now looks very well. In a second case, the patient, Mrs M.
