Mr. D. Clemesha, wardsman of the local hospital, returned from the south last Sunday after being away some two months to get the best medical treatment procurable, but the doctors could not do much good for poor Dan. He is laid up and had to resign his position as wardsman to the Muttaburra hospital. Everybody in the district feels very sorry for Dan Clemesha, as he proved himself one of the kindest and best wardsmen the institution has ever had. He is suffering with a complaint caught, it is thought, from one of tne patients that died at the hospital some two years ago.
