Montagu Cottage Hospital.

Two cases have been admitted to the institute this week and the same number have been discharged. One case was that of a young man named Callaghan, employed at the Denaby Main Colliery, who had got kicked by a pony on the arm. The limb was broken. It was set at the institution, and Callaghan was able to go home the same day.

A boy named Fred Bower, residing in the Brickyard, was run over by Sequah’s” carriage on Saturday last, but not injured seriously.

Montagu Cottage Hospital.

In the Hospital this week there are thirteen patients. Reade, the foreman, who was injured on the hand last week has been discharged.

A man from Denaby, named Tom Clayton, was yesterday admitted, suffering from the effects of an accident which resulted in the amputation of a portion of one of his feet.

Mr Montagu, who so generously presented the hospital, has recently promised to give £50 to the proposed alterations, in addition to the land.

During the past nine months, which time the hospital has been open, 80 patients have been admitted. The returns of Doncaster show 120 for a full year, so it must be admitted that this institution has done a good and useful work.
