■ HALIFAX, Oct. 6—The United Mine
Workers are preparing to   I urn   the
tables on the coal companies in   the
matter of arrests for'libel, and they
propose also taking.similar action on
other charges. D. McDougall, president
. of the U. M. W. in this district is milder arrest at Montreal on a charge of
criminal   libel  because   bf  advertise-
ments^in La Patrie and other Canadian
papers in   Montreal bearing his name

SAN FRANCISCO OPERA CO.
Arrangements have been completer1
for the appearance of the San Francis*
co Opera Company in this city on
Wednesday' October 13 at the Fernie
Opera House. "The Gay Parislenne"
which will be the offering, is a musical
comedy in two .acts, adapted from the
French of "La Belle Peree" by Ivan
Caryll and Geo. Dance and which a
few years past, had all London laughing. . Transplanted to America it
was again a great success at the Herald-Square Theatre, New York. There
are many good parts1 in tho Gay Paris-
ieiino, and appear to have been tailored
to measure to suit the San Francisco
Opera company. Tho Daily World of
Vancouver B, C, ih its issue of July 6
printed the following: "Of all the mirth
provokers which the San Francisco
Opera Company has gladdened Vancouver, by putting on "the Gay Parislenne," is,surely the chief. It. is to
laugh, which is to say that it* is to
chortle over jokes that are farcial. In
"The Gay Pavisienne" there is not the
slightest opportunity for tlie groucher
to grouch, or the mirthless man to* cultivate dolor. ( The pay Parislenne is
a winner.     Miss Mabel Day as the gay
to have written for or allowed to appear in the Sydney Record, of which
he is editor and manager.
U. M. W. officials are preparing to
arrest as many of the coal operators1
of the province as they can reach on
a charge of conspiracy. They allege
that the operators have - formed a
combine to keep up coal prices, and
that the consumer finds that wherever
he turns the price is the„same at the
mines,'and that this0is done by. an
illegal combination in restraint of
trade.
Judge Leet today issued warrants
for the arrest of Harry Bousfield and
Peter Patterson, both members of the
Board of International Mine Workers,
of America, who, are charged with the
same crime as tlie two men Dan McDougall and Lestage, previously
charged with having libelled the Do:
minion Co-H Company by making
public certain announcements which
are not true.      Patterson and Bous
field are libw atTending-tl!e~a"nntfai*
meeting of the Mine Workers iu Indianapolis. The charge on which they
arc to be.arrested is not, of an extraditable-character, so that, if they do not
come back to Canada the' warrant cannot, be served.  ' ' '       *

quality of her voice, and her dainty and
vivacious style of acting are admirably
in place. Chief, among the fun makers was Teddy Webb, who seemed to
revel in the-part of Ebenezer "Honeycomb. A remarkably funny plot, and
plentifully interspersed with the latest and most up to date song selections
set the audience in a high state of enthusiasm. The laughter was continuous and only' gave way to applause
when the magnificent stage effects'
were shown. It was certainly an evening of great success for the ' San
Francisco Opero Company and the
Empress Theatre."
"The Gay Parisienne" will be given
in this city with all the care and attention to detail tliat characterized the
Vancouver production and will undoubtedly prove the most^ notable theatrical event in the history of the eity,

The opinions of the < miners are that
the explosion was due to a blown up
shot. They can give no other reason
aud officials say that they are entirely
nt a loss to account for It. Arthur
Glenn, n brattice man,, was between
No. 2Vj and '.', levels when the explosion look place, and with eight or
nine others rnn for the slope. When
he reached the mouth Alex. Shaw,
the foreman, called for volunteers,
and with a number of others he returned in the mine. It. Is expected
that work will be Vosumed in less
thnn a week and the dally output of
MOO will go on,
The work of rescue still continues,
but it is not expected that any more
bodies will be recovered before morning, as the portion.cf the mine where
the explosion occurred is badly wrecked. The brattice work was torn
down and the rescuers are very badly
handicapped by gas.
The majority of the men killed were*
old residents of the district and wed
known.

THE   NOVA  SCOTIA   STRIKE
Board-Members Uousfield, Patterson
and McLennon, wlio, willi Vice-President .McCulIough have been in charge
of the strike at Glace Ilrty, Novt Scotia, miners, are attending the huoi-ia-
tional board meetings, have nothin*3-
but praise, for'the conduct of the strikers and condemnation for the action
of the Dominion Coal Company's trmi
ment of those who have conducted tlio
the strike, and their usage of the boys
on strike.
But despite all persecution tbo/ aie
just as sanguine of ultimate succe-s a-,
they were when the strike wus ordered July tl.
Tlie coal company, wbo have boon
blowing about their great output "out
of the stocked coal on hand," when the
strike was ordered, have now about got
it all used up, and will from now ou
have to depend on ihe product of Jno.
Moffatt and his striko breakers, and
4 reports from local papers say that
those deceived sue leaving whenever
they can raise enough ensh to take
thom away.
The Dominion Coal Company made n
great blow about being able to" pay a
tf per cent dividend, the same as'their
last, audit, but failed to mention that
their stock , of coal was nearly all
gone; and it had cost as much to load
it out of tlie heap as it did tlieir old
miners to dig it and load it.
All kinds of tricks are being resorted to at. deception In getting men to
go there, but most of them fail, aiid
the strikers are more determined than
ever and more confident, of final victory.   "n ■
Evictions from the company's houses
have been resorted to, but the organization is putting up shelter as fast as
can be done to meet, the emergency,,
and no effort will he spared to keep
up the' fight until victory perches on
the banner of tho U. IU.W. of A.—

the driver, in some way be fell off Unload and ihe wagon passed over iris
body.
One of his companions hurried to-
call medical assistance, while the other placed tlie injured man in the most
comfortable position possible. Before
Dr. Wewburn, who was called, could
arrive, tlie man was dead.
The p.olicc and tlie coroner were
notified but* did not consider an ,in-

to await, instructions from the relatives,
Tlie deceased came to Lethbridge a
couple .-.of months ago from Fernie.
He was formerly a contracting carpenter in Calgary and comes originally from Brampton, Out.,—where his
wife and.child now are.
It is .supposed that the accident
occurred through heart weakness,
to which he was subject. Mr. Fraser,
says that, he was sitting beside McLeod and they were sitting quietly on
the load of lumber when McLeod apparently tried to change his position
and fell off. The deceased had not
been drinking., lie--was about forty
years of age,—Lethbridge* Herald ot

Several defences ha"ve been raised
to the claim for compensation herein.
The deceased was,an employee of the
respondents (C. N. KCo.il Co.) He
died while undergoing an operation for
rupture.
Without dealing witli the questions
raised by Mr. Ross on the question of
notice of injury, I will first deal with
the question of the injury itself.. Did'
the accident, arise in the course of and
out of the employment? Undoubtedly the onus Is on the claimant, nnd
thnt rule as Coyens Hardy M. R. snys
"is none tlio loss true although by
ronson of the death of the workmen
It mny be a greater burden Is thrown
on the dependants of tho deceased."
Speaking as to tho rupture and ns,
to Its having occurrod In tho mines,
Dr. .McSorley says "It Is doubtful, yes;
ho might have boen or might not hnvo
boen," and again on page ti nnd more
pnrtlculnrly ou page 10, whnt Is tho
probability In this ense? A—I really
don't know, All I cnn sny is thnt
tho mtin hnd a rupture,"
Then ngnln, rending Dr. MeSorh-y's
evidence it Is quito compatible wiih .
nny .complaint Jhe man may have
mndo at tho mino (though I cannot
find that ho did make such a complaint.)

SOCIALISM NOT A THEORY OF
ECONOMIC   FATALISM
euiate economic struggle, or tbey maybe used to supplement tbe political attack. We may have mass strikes of
the workers engaged in tbe staple industries for political purposes. Nor

struggle affords no immediate hope
to them, promising nothing now but
At first tbis theory may appear to
be harsh and repellant, destroying all
man's individuality, making him a
mere automaton, and involving a mechanical conception of social progress,
a rigid economic fatalism. The theory is often criticised from this point
of view, and it must lie confessed that J everything untimately through the so

THE SOCIALISTS
■Who*'They Are and What They Stand
For
Finally, the organizations of, tlie
workers, the labor unions, have been
attacked in a vital part—their treas-*
urics. When the members of a British'trade union; tlie Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants, were compelled by the courts to pay to tiie Tuff
Vale Railroad Company, again***-, which
members of the society had waged :-.
strike  in  the  usual  regular  manner.
If they destroyed the capitalist control
of judiciary they would be ablo. to
safeguard their organizations against
injunctions, damage suits, and other
insidious forms of capitalist, aggression which are now rendering them ini;
potent.
. There can lie no question as to (he
political power of the working class
whenever ils members choose to exert
it. Tlieir votes far outnumber thc
combined votes of the great so called
middle class and the small plutocratic
class. '*■   ■
COMMAND   OF   JUSTICE,
"Thou Shalt Not Eat Bread in.the
Sweat  of  Another's   Face."
0If every male adult between the ages,
of 20 and 45 should become a producer
and work like-* ants and -bees during
the sunny hours of bright days only it
would not lie necessary'to work during
the inclement and stormy weather and
I demand that you answer this question.
.'**'*.
If you workers, who are plodding on
alone, knew as much as ants, you
would organize bito bodies, into unions
or colonies and whip lliese monsters as
African ants drive elephants and tigers. •
And if you know as much as bees
you would drive out the drones form
your hives and starve them to death
at the. beginning of the winter season.* , .
If you were as humane as cranes
you,would be kind enough, to provide
for the aged and those of the human
family who are unable to any longer
provide for themselves.   ,
If you knew as much as hogs, or
oven as much as geese you would protect, your own offspring from peril; for
hogs and geese as well as other animals and birds will fight for the pro-*
tection of their young broods.
Hut' you do not know as much as
beasts and you do not care as much
as birds, to protect your young. If
you did know as much as beasts or as
birds you would certainly; protect your
young from the greed'of capitalism
and graft.
If you working people would 'organize into an industrial and political
union you would conquer the earth and
own it.
You would obtain freedom for yourselves and*for posterity and-your children would not be enslaved and ground
up iu the slave mills by the captains
of industry, who own the courts, control congress, direct tho president, the
arniy and navy and the police.
Your republican president whom .you
elected last fall is the willing tool of
the republican captains of industry and
kings of finance. -
Your democratic and republican con-
gressmen whom you elected by your
votes have remained true lo the bosses
who selected and nominated them.
When you are starving for bread,
and strike Jpr a larger s_lice_o_f bread".

Under these conditions it is practically

WHY WOMEN ARE CHEAP ,
I'Yom wbniever moral plane ono
views Iho function of the ballot, thero
Is, for women, this obvious vnluo In
croatliiir or In controlling nnd chnst-
cnliiR Its economic power. ' The lnrg*
er economic aspect of the suffrage lm*
mediately follows In liil'lueticlnp; and
regulating through lho laws, llm con*
ditiouH nf commerce, national and In-
loriiiHIoniil, the I'eliillon between labor
mid capital, buyer nnd Heller, Only the
ignorant or Hie wilfully blind Kiday
are In nuy doiihi as to woman's need
for Ihe'hallot lo protect herself and
her claims in lli«*-*o thing.;. The va*
son women arc cheaper than men Is
hecaiiso thoy are more helpless, Only
the aiilmnlH arc more ho and It Is only
hecaiiiio llioy are the most helpless of
all that they are the "cheapest of
all. lt has become self evident in
this country that the people who have
the hallot get more consldoratton than
those who haven't. -
They'have a weapon with which to
defend themselves against oppression.
It is known that in the four equal suf*
frnge states the laws, protecting women and children, regulatin*.; wages
and hours, are more fnvoni'-do iian
anywhere else in the country, It Is
equally obvious that womon nre more
careful of tho Interests of chlldron
than men are, and that women's e'e-
oeonilc ehject In demaiulhig the ballot
Is fortified by a natural instinct and
that she is acting for the good of the
race, The primal Instinct*.to protoct
lier young Is quite hb powerful as tho
determination to free horsolf In this'
present world wide movement for political equality. In most of tho Stales
of the union women aro obliged to
struggle for their economic ends Indirectly. If thoy are wago earners t! ey
have to Influence the conditions un
der which they earn, conditions hoiiio*
times which kill, malm and undormli1..''
health—ihey have to Influence those
conditions Indirectly, If thoy aro not
wage onrnoi-H or otherwise flniincinlly
Independent, then lliolr economic sur-
vlvnl Is mill more Indirect, And Indirection Ih the uultnpplcHt develop'

<*.
plosion of fire damp in No. 4 shaft .of
the Northwestern hnprovemnet Coal
mines shortly after one o'clock Sunday
afternoon cost the lives of ten .men
and one " other may die of injuries
received. ,.
. The explosion started a fire in the
shaft which is still burning-and "which
makes the rescue of the bodies of five
men impossible. The property loss cannot be accurately .estimated at this
time, but George IC. lloplvins. chief accountant of the company, believes that
it will cost $50,000 to open the shaft.
Losses to buildings .will amount to
an additional $30,000.

as men may enter the mines with safety an attempt, will be made to rescue
tinrbonies™ -—: ^ *■
It is generally believed that other
.- men are in the burning mine, but
such men were below the ground without authority and an accurate check is
not possible until today.
„ When the explosion occurred a column of fire wns thrown hundreds of
feet into the air, igniting the shaft,
plant and adjoining buildings. Under
the intense heat the hoist in the shaft
crumbled and-fell into the furnace
below.   ••'•,'
Embers thrown from the mine started' fires almost, simultaneously in 14
different places a quarter, of a mije
away.
. The bank,' the Y. M. C." A. and 12
other frame buildings were totally destroyed, the power plant, the. engine
house and the boiler plant are still
intact.,
No. 3 mine is working today! It'is
about two miles away from the burning shaft. The other mines belonging to the Northwest Improvement Co.
will not be worked until tomorrow.
Company offiicals expect to find
themselves' shorthanded',' however,
because of the curiosity of the miners
about the exploded mine and their
tendency to linger around it, and a
consequent, general reluctance lo go
back to worlc so soon after the accident.
The mine in the neighborhood of the
shaft is still burning fiercely and the
flames- are shooting up from the shaft
nearly a hundred feet into the air.
The electric pumps, which supply
the town with water have been shut
off and the supply for the city is almost exhausted. The shaft is reported to be slowly caving in and other explosions may occur.
Rescue parties have been sent into
the mine from the slope connecting
with the shaft.
As yet it has been found impossible
to make any appreciable progress because of the heat and smoke. The exact extent of the fire or the number
of men who were killed cannot accurately be stated, the number of men
at work'near .the bottom can only be j
estimated.
The cause of the explosion is not
known as the fire bosses had just left
the mine and had reported everything
in perfect condition.'   '
The mines of the Northwestern Improvement Company are the largest
in tho state and have a' producing ca;
■pacltj^-'of—8000-tons-pei—day-and-om-
ploy 2500 men.
The loss of the shaft will' materially affect the coal supply of the enure
state. -''
Tho Roslyii shaft is G75 feet deep
and about 500 men were employed in
mine number four which is known as
the shaft.

Any wage earner who aoes into or remains in the labor niovement with any
expectation of reward, or even the'confidence and good will of all his fellow
wage earners is doomed to bitter disappointment. To become active in such
a movement is to make enemies, to ignore enemies and push ahead is to incur all the epithets known to a suspicious person, And the unfortunate part
of it often is that the vipers who hiss
suspicion , and conjure to' poison the
minds of,fellow-workers are snake-like,
compelled to and do hide away from
the open forum "of meetings where
each and all have equal opportunity
and right to defend themselves against
the silly hallucinations jigged up by
disappointed and envious sore heads,
who, having no ability but cunning,
have ceased to merit the confidence of
decent- wage-earners. Sociology and
working class economics are as much
a science as mathematics or chemistry. To be possessed of acknowledge
of the wage earner's position in hum
an society and the part they are playing in the world's history is to become
a creature of that knowledge. With

men are' dead and one slightly injured as the result of a head-on freight
collision which occurred Saturday at
7.30 p.m: on the Canadian Northern
near Banning, Ont., 295 miles east of
Winnipeg.* Engineer Puslie; though
covered with debris when found, was
uninjured. The engines and quite a
number of cars were demolished. It
is said that the wreck resulted from
misinterpretation of orders by one-,of
the crew.
The dead are: Fireman .Woodcock,
and Urakeman Lamb of, Rainy River,
and Engineer Ilansen of Rainy River

Extra freight No. 32 eastbound and
haulting 23 cars of wheat had orders
to meet Xo. 97, at* Lascln but for some
reason or other, the order was overlooked and as a result both trains met
this side of Canning" The wheat train
was running down grade and Xo. 97

that the engine was driven back
through seven box cars smashing
them to kindling wood.
The engine itself was driven right

i

We beg to announce to our many customers that we,,have  re-
moved'to.our old quarters next the Bunk of Commerce pending the
erection of our new building opposite the King Edwardthotel.
We should bo. sorry to interrupt tho
day dreams«of the Coleman .Miner,
for outside1 the stand that, paper has
taken on unionism we admire its policy, We may be pardoned for this
nttempt to put It right, for in all honesty, wo have nothing to gain, and to
put It mildly, much to loso by the
stand wo tako, Time was when wo
were younger, wo thought along tlio
same linos'most reformers in embryo
Oo, and woro proud to stand forth,
mayhap alono, and advocate principles
which wo deemed to bo right, All
honor to those" youthful minds that
hh yet have uot bocoiiio blase, for In-
noconey will always command respect
from respectable people, nnd although
Innocence trnd 'Ignorance may uot, bo
synonymous terms, yot thoy blond together so closely Hint (lie difference
is only in degree.
Now tho editor of tlio Miner hns
put himself on record iih oppos-ted to
International unlonlHm. Whnt his ox*
perlenco hits boon wo do not know,
but from our thirty six years in the
business, wo rnther Imiiglno wo enn

beneath tho effulgent rays of our
pen,
Tom Pnluo struck Iho keynote of
the whole trouble when lm wrote;--

they have been able to obtain for

for him, and perhaps it is all sufficient
but it is only a square deal to the men
to inform them that many of the Coat
Mine Operators in the Pass are not
Canadians. ' If an International union
is good for tho operators, wo fall to
understand why an International union
amongst-the employees Is not a good
thing,,'
llrlefly (nnd we hope to return more
fully to this subject.) the trouble is
that, an International Union composed
of Its tens of thousands of loyal members, is a stiff proposition for the* operators to buck, hut n Canadian union
In, embryo, litis only sufficient, weight,
to enable the operators to believe that
there Is something In tlio scale.
Speaking of tho Typographical union, with which wo are associated,
there was a fight on for shorter hours
and after spending something over
$1,000,000 the International won out.
Thoso who stnyod with tho Interim-

the label and the^ballot. History proves that ive
have not enough brains to use the ballot. "God

There is an amount of suspicion about this
labor convention now being held in Ottawa. It
does not seem to have tlie "right ring about it. 31
seems to be about the size of the half cent that it
lias asked the Dominion government to' coin.—Calgary Albertan,
Labor leaders will sooii be forced to step lively
if they are to" hold their jobs. ' Capital has no

learn this lesson. When craft autonomy is abolished and industrial unionism accepted, labor will

The resolution of the Canadian Federation of
Labor asking the Government lo introduce a new
coin, the value of which shall be one-half cent,
should not be seriously considered. Our system
of'currency is at present the ---implest and most
concise in existence and any attempt to needlessly
complicate it by the addition of half cent coins is
ti move in the wrong direction. In this land we
have survived so far without the .existence of the
smallest unit in the Canadian money market, viz.,
one cent. Doubtless the half-cent idea-originated
in a brain of .about the same size.

theor is every prospect of maintaing

at Michel's action, as they always had
played tho part of the spoiled child in

we don't think the action of these men

been Informed that Mr. Sharp, secretary of the league and  air.    Ernest
Barnes offered to bet money that this
would be tho outcome of tlie league
meeting, so that things must liave been

did'not the association set'a date for

However, the game should bo a good

MELBOURNE, Australia, Sept. HO—
Tom'Mann, celebrated for D\i fi.rt lib
took in the leadership of the famous
dock strike in London in 1.SSS. hails
the general strike in SweJo-i as iJio
greatest example of industrial unionism the world has ever seen, in an article appearing In the Socialist of Melbourne. *
The article is entitled "Hurrah for
the Comrades*of Sweden!" and puts
especial stress .on the international
solidarity of labor shown by the struggle, . It was the dock strike in London that brought forth such men as
John Burns, now a labor member In
the English house of commons, and
Ben Tillett, prominent English labor
leader, in addition to Tom    Mann.
Some 150,000 men wore involved in
this  strike.
Is Answered i'n" Sweden
Tom Mann's article in the Socialist
of Melbourne is as follows:
"Many persons-have'been asking
lately, 'What is Industrial Unionism?"
The reply is—there's an exhibition of
it now in Sweden. The 250,000 unionists wlio are showing class consciousness and demonstrating tlieir working-
class solidarity are thereby telling tlie
world of workers to shake themselves
a bit, and get to business and do
tilings. It would be impossible to receive a greater compliment-from the
plutocratic crowd than is'contained in
the cable at the bead of litis column.
(Tlie dispatch referred to tells how
well tlie'strikers maintained order.)
"The men being well organized, and
knowing exactly what they want and
how they intend to get it, saddle themselves with tlio responsibility of preserving   public   order,     knowing   the

from the Coal Co., and the mine work;
ers havq the right to build a hospital
o£ t-heii*. own. It's about time' tlie
miners of Michel owned thoir own
hospital, and then tliey would not have
to depend upon the good will of the
Crow's Xest Pass Coal Company to
take care of tlieir sick and injured.,
and in the long run il would be a
good deal cheaper for them. Dr. T.
A. Wilson is now making ■ arrangements with Dr. 11. S.'MqSorley to take
over his hospital equipment and hospital, so that he can get down to business in a few days.
Following is the agreement:
'.1: For the consideration of $1.50
per month from all employees earning
$2.25 as, a minimum wage and $1.00
per month from all employees earning
less than $2.25 per day, the said T.
A. Wilson shall act, as= physician and
helplessness of the poico and military*i surgeon to all,such employees,    and
Local Union shall be immediately notified.
13. Should any dispute arise as to
the definition of this agreement, the
same shall be referred to the doctors
and the employees committee for adjustment. ,
, 14, *If during the life- of this agreement the employees should build a
hospital of their own they shall lake
over the present hospital at a fail-
value, the same if necessary to be
fixed by arbitration and this agreement shall become null and void.
15. Doctor's committee to meet the
doctors at any time to confer on subjects affecting the medical work.
16. Any clause in this agreement being, violated ihe same shall be null
and void.
.17. There shall be a doctor's office
in New town with office hours of al
least twice a day, and the office hours
shall remain the same in Old Town
and either Dr. T. A. Wilson or his
partner shall reside in New town.'
JS. This agreement to go into effect
upon being passed by a majority vote
of the employees and lo stay in effect*
until September 30 1011, both parties
lo meet, in, conference ninety days
prior to discuss a renewal of same.

FIRE RAGING
IN ALBERTA
Prairie Fires  in Every Direction and
Efforts to Check it Futile-
Farmers Lose Millions
EDMONTON, Oct. 5.—From far and
near throughout the country lying
north, west and east of here, come
stories of forest fires which are said
to be ■ ravaging miles and miles of
valuable timber, renderiiy; homesteaders homeless and destroying thousands of dollars worth of grain, hay
and other fodder.
Tonight the shy to the westward and
northward of the city is lurid with the
reflection from these fires and tlie air
is dense with smoke. The destruction
is not by any means confined to what
might lie (.ailed the hip timber, but
vast, stretches of brush'Youiitry are being swept.- The lobs incurred by the
actual destruction of the brush is not
serious tut great numbers of farmers
living in such sections are being burn-
od out of their homes* and are forced
to flee for safely.
Trappers, hunters and others returning from "the north report that
there are great broad sweeps of fire
racing across the wooded country, in
many sections destioying everything
in their path.
Norman Luxtou of Banff who made
ii remarkable trip down the Athabasca'
from near the Yellowhead Pass to Fori
Assinaboine iu a canoe, ' and arrived
here yesterday reported that for miles
he passed through smoke so dense
that he could* hardly see- three feet
before him. At other places'.he said
tlie dense forests of splendid timber
which bordered tlie river were all on
fire. ..
He attributed theso fires to the
burning out of the Grand Trunk and
Canadian Northern rights of, way. The
timber was all so dry, he said, that
once a fire started it was almost im
possible to prevent its spreading.
Others who have returned from the
.McLeod and Pembina river districts
also report that great fires are raging
there and destroying miles and miles
of the most valuable timber on this
side' of the Hockies. ,
Many tragic' tales of lonely home-
• steaders having'to put'up heroic fights
with the fire in order to save their
homes and families are reaching the
city from many sources. During the
past few ..days   there    have been no
fatalities* reported.
The fires seem to be spreading on
either* side of the Grand Trunk right
of way wherever ihe country.*is wooded.
-Hundreds of dollars worth of hay
and other fodder standing in the stack
roady for winter uso havo been swept
away by the fierce fires which have
spread with terrible swiftness over the
country. That the farmers will encounter great difficulty in bringing
tlieir stock through'the winter is now
realized on every hand. ' Not only
have many of them lost their entire
store of fodder but the fires have licked up what pasture there "was on the
open prairie and in this way the settler has suffered a double loss.
The heaviest loss has been in the
districts between Uaysland on the'
Wetaskiwin branch of the C.P.R. and
Vegreville on ihe Canadian Northern.
In this area alone il is estimated that
at least 10 townships have been wiped
out by fires which have destroyed hay
stacks and outbuildings' tlie nine of
which would total in lho thousands
were it possible for anything like a
definite estimate to be made of tho
loss.    '* -     .  '
Heavy loss has also been sustained
in tlie districts around Athabasca Landing' and farther south In* the province around Stottler.
As far as (he .Mounted Police, have
discovered however, 'there-ha* be*',i
little loss of life in any of tin. big
fires although many homes have been
threatened and it lias taken the combined, strength of many communities
lo ward off the* conflagrations. Tlie
fires are not confined to the wooded
country, but arc also * sweeping the
prairie lands and destroying miles of
a few of them did burn the' fence would
stand.
Fred ' Tonilinson of Calgary was out
to Priddis yesterday, -and on his return reported that a prairie fire was
raging in that, vicinity and unless the
wind changed the' village would -be
threatened. './.,*
The ranchers for miles around have
gathered'and are fighting it, but were
almost exhausted by the heat and the
smoke. An attempt was made to notify the Mounted Police but the lines
were found to be out, of order and Mr.
Tonilinson, b. ought the word to them
on his return.
^TETTLER; Oct. 3—The disastrous
prairie fire of last week, in' which
Mrs. Glover"and two children lost their
lives, has burned itself out without doing much further damage. The wind
was so strong that, the fire reached the
house without being noticed and cut
off all means of escape for the unfortunate woman and children,
A number'of horses.and cattle in
the range'of the,fire, were destroyed,
and dead coyotes were found on the
prairie next day.
The firo only burned over a limited
extent of country.

October 10th 1909
'-)//, after J2.000
years.
Two thous-
' and years ago
the usual method of healing skin
injuries and diseases was
to apply certain essences and juices obtained direct from various healing herbs
and roots, The gladiators of ancient
Rome and the athletes of Greece adopted this means of healing their injuries,
"and with wonderful effect. A (jladlator
would emerge from the ring having sustained tenible cuts und bruises, yet on
the application of his favourite herbal
balm, within a few days he would again
be ready for combat.
As centuries  rolled   by,   the   secret
of making these herbal extracts whs lost,
and ointments and salves made up of
•nimal fats took the place of the pure
, herbal balm.
Zam-Buk, the great balm which during the past few years hns revolutionized the system of skin-healing, was
produced by returning to the idea of the
ancients, that man'n best medicaments
must be found in herbal extracts.
lu the investigation which followed,
the necessity was seen (or entirely ex
cludrng the rancid fats and coarse
minerals from which most modern ointments are com-vunded, and sticking
closely to nature.
Scientific inquiry eventually centred
round the peculiar properties of certain
vegetable saps mid juices. These extracts from rare herbs had, it was found,
a curious power that enabled them when
spread on the broken skin, to knit the
idges of ilssueii together—in short, the
power of healing injuries in a marvellously natural way, and of annihilating
any germs of discane harboured by
wound or pore.
The choice of the right herbal Juices
mid their refinement comprised the next
step, after which came the more difficult
l>rohli-m of finding out just the-exact
proportion ol the different ingredients
whicli would give the best heahrigretuilIB,
burly disappointment-ind costly exper"
Careful tests established the exceptional value of the new balm, its constant, reliability, and its unvarying
success even in certain obstinate cases
of eczema, and ulceration.
From the first Zam-Buk has born out
in practice, what its discoverers expected
of it from a practical standpoint. In
four continents it has now become tbe
favourite household balm, Cheap substitutes made up to look like Zam-B* k,
and sold at so-called " cheap " rates, are
constantly being produced, bin ihe

•YCK, you cowards!"
The command came from
the doorway and iu, a voice
that was full of peculiar power. ' Bracket, Johnson and ftowe fell
away from their intended'victim, each
with a downcast countenance. And It
was a mere youth, hardly out of his
teens, that emerged from a corner'into
"which he had been driven by the gamblers. ,    .
When the.man iu the doorway caught
sight of the youth,-a slightly startled
look appeared iu his eyes." To the older mau there was something familiar
.about the-younger man's features, yet
the two were strangers.
"Does it take three cutthroats to
murder a babe?" inquired the newcomer, advancing toward thc center of
the room.
"I tnke uo Insult from a chit llko
that," growled ono.
".Nor I, nor I," chorused the others.
"Yet you would play with him, soak
him with wine, then take his money."
There ' was' something nbout the
speaker that commanded deference,
notwithstanding the scathing he was
delivering; something there was of an
honorable bearing iu his makeup that
had not been obliterated by his frequent associations with men, of,the
class lie found there. '      ,
"The youngster accused us of combining against him to take his money."
acknowledged Howe, and the man who
had just entered smiled.    "*
"Well, It seems the boy has some
sagacity, though lie is muddled." The
speaker swept the gamblers wllh his
gaze as the words fell from his'llps.
"You're a privileged talker, Dont Ca-
gle, and wo pass it over."
"If it's.the real sport you'ro after, I'll
show you a gentleman's game." Cagle
had turned upon his companion soon
after they had issued from the building. „
' .."Yes, go ahead."
"You say you were born at C—?"
lie bad turned and uttered .this in the
boy's ear. ° \
"I—I didn't think I said so, but I was
born there, which I presume is' uo
crime," , .     ■ ,,
Cagle did-not reply," but under his
breath he repeated interrogatively,
"No crime?" and shrugged his shoulders.
"Come on."
Cagle hailed a cab, and, taking thc
young man by ,the arm. he dragged
him Into it.-
"To tlie (Jildod Hall." he called to the
driver. ,   *
The drive was made in silence.    <
"Now,-  If  you   want a ■ fair  game,
voice. And perhaps some , day „ there
would be light on the hills. . But, ah,
I'm torn in sunder thisnight. I wish I
had died there at Miklevni while my
blood wns hot." She paused a long
while in thought. Then* she went ou:
"If I go, I must go while It's still dark
arid while these, good peoplo sleep. Go
and tell Lord Dunstanbury to be ready
to start an hour before'dawn and do
you and ho come, then to the door of
the church. If I'm not waiting for you
there, come Inside and And me."
He started toward her with nn eager
gesture of protest. Sho raised her hand
and checked him.
"No, I've decided nothing. I can't
tell yet," she said, Sho turned and left
lilm. He heard 0 hor steps descending
the old winding'stair which led from
the top of tho wall down Into tho
street. lie did not know whether ho
would see hor alive again, and with
her message of such ambiguous meaning ho wont to.Dunstnnbury. Yet curiously, though he hnd plended so
urgently with her, though to him hor

The death of moriseigneur was indeed
avenged. But there was no place for
Sophy, the queen of a tempestuous
hour.
. They set their horses' heads toward
the frontier. They,, began the descent
on the,other sldo. The lake was gone,
the familiar hills vanished. Only in the
eye of memory stood old Volsenl still
set In its gray mountains. Sophy rode
forth from Kravonia In
her sheepskins and her
silver ring, tho Inst queen
of Kravonia, tho Inst
bailiff of Volsenl, the
Inst chosen leader of the
mountain men. But the
memory of thc red star
lived after her—how sho
mit Sophy loved monselgneur nnd
turned Ui avenged lilm, how her
look back. r,lC0 was fairer than tho
faco of other, women nnd moro pale,
and how tho red star glowed In sorrow
and In joy, in lovo und In clash of

othors death. In the street of Volsenl

this." „   '
"She?" The older man had leaned
forward now.
"My m'otheri you know. She's a regular fool about me."
'•But of course you have no love or
respect for her, so why should you be
thinking or.,speaking about the scene
now?"
The young man's teeth ground k,to-
gcther, and his right hand groped outward in search' of the older man's
throat.
"You dare assert, such a thing. I'll
murder you."""'"
"It is written somewhere that actions speak louder than words."
The calm voice that came out of the
dark corner of the cab' fell upon the
young man's ear. with peculiar effect.
His hand* fell to his knee, and he settled back into bis seat, thinking as
clearly as his condition would allow.
And both men were silent now until
the'eab stopped. The door was jerked
open, and Cagle mnde tho way for the
young man to get out. A hall night
gleamed down from the top of a flight
of steps that led up from the street
"You're all right, I,believe," declared
tho youth, reaching for .agio's hand.
"When can I see you again?"
"At tho Gilded Ball tomorrow night."
The boy made his way up thc steps
and began trying to insert a key in the
night latch. But boforo he had succeeded the door was drawn open from
the Inside, and for a few seconds Cagle was permitted to gaze upon thc
face of n beautiful woman, but it was
a middle aged and saddened face. Thc
door closed, and the name plate was
but dimly discernible—"Mrs..Margaret
Brewster."
Cagle was waiting at thc entrance to
the Gilded Ball and scanning the faces
of those who entered. When' Brewster
arrived, Cagle greeted him quietly;
then he'led the way inside. After some
intricate windings the two men seated
themselves at a table, among a number of others In a brilliantly lighted
room. At a table riot far away were
seated two men, and a woman, all in
evening dress, and tlie woman was
strikingly handsome. They were drink-,
ing champagne and playing poker.
Cagle leaned forward and spoke to
Brewster iu a low. tone.
"Will you drink tonight?" he asked.
"I think not."
"Play?" ,     '
'"No."
"Suppose she were your sister or
mol her?"
"Do you want tne to' murder you?"
Brewster's hand clinched fiercely.
"She   is  some  one's' daughter,   and
- each of lier companions is some one's
son."   Caglo's tone was quiet.
"Ugh!" exclaimed Brewster, turning
from the scene.
But n gleam of satisfaction shot from
tlle older man's eyes.
"Let's go somewhere, decent," suggested Brewster, arising. "I'm nervous
from last night's experience. And, say,
you rub me tho wrong way, somehow,
yet I like you. There is something

"You say he was a friend of yours?**
They had turned away from the door.
and Cagle answered: -
"Yes. a friend and a man of fine
qualifications, but an idler."
Brewster stooped to pick up a slip of
paper at his feet.
"What is this?" he asked. ,
"Some of- that patient's writings."
volunteered the attendant.
Brewster read, "Asi idler Is an enemy
to himself and a menace to society."
He stopped and reread the words
thoughtfully. "It is the truth."-he mur-
\nured under his breath.
But Cagle caught the words, and a
smile of satisfaction slipped from the"
tail of his eye.
Beyond the gates Cagle turned abruptly to his companion.
"Brewster, what are you. doing these
days in the way of employment for
your time?"
"Nothing, absolutely nothing, and
that is what has started me on the roar-
to ruin."

"But the scoundrel back there got all

Cagle followed,,.ind they entered a
cab in the street. The drive was a
long ono, Cagle had given directions,
and when the men alighted they were
standing before an obscure entrance to
II— cemetery:
"I want to show you a strange inscription," Cagle drew a key from his
pocket and turned toward a narrow
gate In the wall. Brewster hesitated a
moment.
"This Is n peculiar hour at which to
como hore," ho said.
"I hope you do not fear me?"
"Not In the leiy?t."
Caglo opened tho gate, and tho two
mado their way nmong tho Intricate
windings of tho walkways to a tomb
covered by a plain slab.
Hero Cnglo struck'a match, for tho
moonlight was, not oufflclent, nnd
Brewster read:

passed over his features.
Within a few-months after Brewster
had entered upon his duties he waa
recognized as a coming business mau
of the highest qualifications. Caglo
had dropped buck into the old ruts, a
game here and a game thero for tlie
sake of the sport, philosophizing quietly nnd watching with half hearted interest the procession of humanity. Occasionally he would pass tho homo
where Brewster lived and glance at tlio
name on tho iloorplnte. Occasionally
Brewster thought of Cagle, nud he rec-
ognlzcd the tremendous service tho latter hnd done lilm. And lt was not
strango that ho should think of Caglo
as he lay one day on his back at a hospital a crushed and bleeding form, tho
result of a trolley accident
Ho sent for Cagle, but no ono could
find a man of that nnmo,   Tbo directory did not glvo lt.   No ono among
tho haunts that Brewster named know
lt.   Ho then described tho man minutely, arid a messenger was sent out,   A
man  answering tho description  was
found, and tho messenger approached
him.
"Aro you Dent Cagle?" wnH asked.
"Why do you nsk?"
"A man nnmed Brewster, who Is seriously hurt"--
"You may cnll mo Cagle,   Whero Ib

"I will tnko you to him."
As Cnfr1o entered  the ward  where
Brewster lny ho paused nt sight of a
woman who sat beside tho cot.   Deeply
concerned, her eyes wero watching the
face of her son.    But the patient had
caught sight of  thu  \lsitor,  und  he
murmured eagerly:

Margaret Hicwbter arose quickly ami
