      CHEMIST 'S CLOTHES FOUND ON RIVER BANK, INNISFAIL, November 16
      A well known sugar chemist, Mr. P. H. McWalters, was to have addressed a meeting of farmers this afternoon at Innisfail, but he disappeared yesterday, and this morning, some of his clothes were found on the river bank.
      The matter was reported to the police, who immediately obtained a boat and grappling irons and initiated dragging operations; but up to this evening, their quest was unsuccessful. Up to some time ago McWalters was in charge of the South Johnstone expériment station but he relinquished that position and proceeded south, returning to Innisfail a few days ago.
