Merchant's Views
■'-..j&nii.the Situation
7    P.„Lund, of'the Crow's Nest Pass
Lumber Co., who-is an old timer in the
Canadian and American West, arrived
• in Winnipeg recently. Mr. Lund camo
to Fargo, North* Dalcota. from Sweden;
when he was about six years old, and
.    was. .raised in.: the Red River Valley.
,.   HO, remembers the Custer * massacre
-    and the first and second Riel, rebel-
**•   lions, both vividly.    Mr. Lund was ro-
, ^ Bldent'in Montana at.the.time of the
f flrst'Rlol rebellion;, and at the*,time of
the tragedy In the Little-Big Horn Val-
y  ley he was .living at a point. ,only_ fifty
'  . miles, away, along the Yellowstone. ''I
.    have,"- said Mr. Lund,; af ter 'describing
j.    incidents of his western career, "spent
- .my life in the'country between the Red
7 River-• and .the Pacific? coast,-on both
"sides of.the line.*'    *  .        , .'■   •'
". ; -   Mr. P. Lund helped in the building of
'.-,-the .Crow's,.Nest' Pass'*railroad;  and
■7previous,to*,the time he embarked.in
'   the lumber business about nine .years
-,' ago, he was identified' with railway
construction work.  .; Besides his connection *-.with  the - Crow's. Nest Pass
, Lumber Company, he is,also president
■^of. tlie .Western Canada" Lumber, Com-
..'. .'"pany.     Mr. Lund thinks that" the reciprocal agreement-will have very lit;
-'-'*■"■" tie "-effect on the lumber market.*____
. Coal Miners' Strike Serious  .
-As tothe'present strike of the British Columbia coar'miners, Mr. Lund
said: I'That strike will affect the public pretty soon,'1 if it is not adjusted.
I think both sides are determined to
hold out,until matters are adjusted lh
a tsatisfactory • manner.' Still," it ls
plain; that neither the men nor' the
managers, of the" mines can afford to
continue the strike" any longer than Is
absolutely necessary.1 The men cannot stand .being., out' of; employment
very long without suffering great hardship, and the ■ mine operators cannot
stand a long strike, as the mines are
yet In the expensive -development
period. '-• ' ■ V.   * •' -     * ''
. "A project i of some" interest * upon
which the C. P. R. has embarked is the
building of "the-Kootenay Central,
which runs 208 miles, from Wardner
to Golden, on ' the main line of - the
C. P. R. Contracts are let for about
30 miles at each end of the line, which
it is expected will be'finished in two
years.-7 It taps a fine country, rich
in such minerals as leadj' silver, and
some "gold.' "Speaking of gold," tliere
is considerable'quartz mining done yet

This sale begins at 8 o'clock, Saturday, morning and will continued until

United States Court of Appeals {Reverse Decision in the United y
Hatters' Union Case
M tanbit ■■Street,
.Vancouver BX.c-.
, Al the tlmo of Going to, press a dispatch from New York states that the
United States Circuit Court of Appeals
has rendered n decision in the caso of
D. 1-!. Loowe & Co., of Dinibury, Conn.,
against the United Hatters of _ North
America, reversing a judgment of
$232,240,given by the lower court. The
article states that this decision "blasts'
the hopes of the American Anti-Boycott Association and the- plaintiffs of
recovering and enforcing judgment against members of labor organizations.
In commenting on the decision, Alton
B. Parker, former., candidate for President of the United Stales; and' counsel for'the Hatters'-Union in this case,
says, "It is a very important and helpful decision for organized labor. Wlii.'o
the suit was brought by Loewe & Co.
and doubtless for their benefit, still
the-real prosecutors,-as appears from
the records, was the American Anti-
Boycott Association.
"That Association promised the
plaintiff to' furnish lawyers and pay
expenses. ' ',    ,    ,
"There were more than nine' thou-
• _
sand members of -the Hatters' Union
anil only a little more than two hundred of them aro defendants. Of these
more than lS(7were not .members of
the union which went on strike and
had no knowledge either of the origi-i
or the-details of tho controversy,    '
"The basis of selection 'was a property' one solely. .If* a member* of.
'some Hatters' Union could be found
who owned his little home or possessed a bank", account, or both, he was
made" defendant and his property attached. . The. end .aimed* at \v,as far
beyond tlie recovery' in this; action.*
*- 'A--recovery and enforcement of
Ju_dgm_int_a_zai]is1__rn_embgrs. of l_ab_oi*_or_
accumulation of a fund for support'of
those who feel that the wages offered
nre bqlow the market price is one of
the legitimate objects of such an or-
ganziatlon. They have the right to
appoint officers, who shall advise them
as to the course taken by them in
their relation to their employers. The
officers thoy appoint, or any other person to whom they choose to'listen may
advise them as to the proper course \o
be taken by them in regard to ther
employment, or if they choose to,repose such authority in .any one* may
order them on pain of expulsion from
their union, peeacefully to leave the
employ, of their employer because
any of the terms of their employment
are unsatisfactory.
."It has also been Jield that the
right to join into unions has -been
raised to the dignity of a constitutional right by Stale constitutional provisions, that .ill men. are born free and
equal and have certain natural, essential, and inalienable rights, among
which is the right, of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property.'        " r
.llartin, Law of Labor Unions, p. 11,
Pickett 4s. Walsh, 192 Mass.,' 572.)
But aside from* constitutional or
statutory provision, the better.view is
that the right of laborers to organize-
into unions,is an exercise*of the com-
mon-ljiw, right,of every citizen to pursue
his calling, whether labor or business,
as he in his judgment lhink3 fit, ami
the law not only permits but encourages combinations of this character

ganizations based-solely, on the fact
that they were members , it was naturally assumed would drive out every
economical and saving' member.' That
hope of the American Anti-Boycott Association and of the plaintiff is blasted
by this decision."
In 1902 a'strike was called by the
United Hatters of North America ag-
ainst"T.oewo & Co., hat manufacturers
of Danhury, Conn,, and the fight between the union,and that concern was
waged with more or less bitterness
for nnumber of yenrs. In 1.003 Loe-
wo & Co. brought suit against something like two hundred members of tho
-United Hnll ors of North America,
choosing those who owned ,property,
charging them with violating the Sherman Anti-Trust Law by 'conspiracy" In
restraint of Interstate Commerce. The
Further on in the opinion in. the
last cited case It ls said that they (the
members of the association)
"Could have gone upon strike -without offering any explanation until the
contractors should liave come In distress to the officers of the association
asking ihe reason for the strike. Then
after explanation, the non-members
would have been discharged and the
men of defendant association sent
back to work. Instead of taking that
course; they cliose to inform the contractors* of their determination and
the reason for it. It is' the giving
of this information,* a simple notification of their determination, which it
was right and proper and reasonable
to give, that has been characterized
as .'tin-eats' by," the special term and
which has led to iio inconsiderable
amount of misunderstanding since.' -"
In the case of Commonwealth vs.
Hunt (4 Metcalf, 111) it was recognizeef
that a man, or .a number of men, for
ainy reason,'or for no reason, could
refuse-to work for a given employer
or with a given concern: Chief Justice
Shaw ,said:  ,.
_. "Suppose a class of workmen, impressed with the manifold evils of in-
temperauc.* should agree with each
other not to work vin a shop in which
ardent spirit was furnished.or not'to
work in a shop with anyone who used
II, or riot to work for an employer who'
should, after notice, employ a journeyman who habitually used it. The consequence might be the same. * A -\york-
maiuwho; should.still persist in the use
of ai-dent. spirits would find it more
difficult to get employment;-a master
employing such an one might, at times
experience inconvenience in his work,
in losing the,service of skilful, but in-

social principle justifies organized action, Organziation or combination is
a law of human society. It is open
lo all orders of men' who desire'to accomplish some lawful purpose through
the greater strength and effectiveness
which organization offers over individual effort. * In an age when vast com:
binatioris of capital are common and,
in, consequence,..competition for labor
is an absolute necessity if tho wage-
earner Is. to- obtain-.Ills fair share' in
the distribution ofllho.'earnlngs which
aro the joint product of capital, and
labor. -As was said- by Attorney-
General Olney: "To-day, the' mass of

The distribution of hides was different
Of the 9,000,000 of hides of meat

- How the railroads of England in
India find their tei;minus in America
is thus graphically described: -
. "Every strong country that contributes to the _trade-growth of a country-
backward iii the points mentioned, is
a benefactor tb the backward country
—in fact, is a" potential means of-uplift which tends lb greater and grander .national' life. This result is better
than the mere profit -in money. Just

,. W. R. .Ross was eleeted-by the votes of the working men of this constituency-to-a seat:in tbe legislative'assembly of British Columbia. .This .s a. fact
that none can dispute..
TV. R. Ross was.the duly employed lawyer of,the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. and in receipt-of. wages
■ for'work performed just the same as any other em
ployee of the aforesaid corporation.     This statement likewisc'cannot be contradicted.
TV. R. Ross, loyal to tlie welfare of his clients, dc-
- monstrates his usefulness not only to them lmt incidentally, to many other firms, by advancing the
argument that the provisions of the Compensation
Act* should be interpreted ns not to be applicable to
foreign dependents.
.   ITis zeal (on behalf of those who retained his
'  services   is   highly   commendable.    TVo honestly
.mean this and wish it to be understood that this is
not n veiled sarcasm, but a candid expression nf
■ opiniop, and consider that he is entitled to bo re-
' garded by his masters as a true and faithful servant
whose duties have been well done,
A disinterested reader picking np his paper in
the morning and turning tho pages .over might nc-
,cidently note among tho legal items: Krzw/i vn
Crow's Nest Pnss Coal Co.; Question on Appeal
Allowed," and ho may havo given thc matter no
further attention, but back of il, there nro tragedies
affecting thc liven of many that to'-describo thom
adequately would require volumes, and furthermore
overy single workingman .throughout tbo Dominion of Cnnada ,is vitally'affected, bccniiBo'.tho decision rendered is not only national in its scope
but extends across the ocean.
JCrzu*. b widow is only ono of many whoso lifo
and well-being is involved, boonuso this was merely
a t<*yl (.'uso to servo as nn example for mnny olhors
of a liko character. To censure Mr. Ross fov thin is
not, just, but 'Uioho who wore iimtniinontnl in giving him tho POWER to mlvn-.iln on biOiiilf of tht-.
wim;m.iii'K to tho .■.■trillion, of momborH of tin- wnr)'.-

It wiih nt first thought that if this Act should bo
interpreted to exclude foreign dependenth that it

This is not all, ho sweeping ns is.tlin decision
thnt the dependents in order to he entitled to re-
eeive oomponmitinn must lie resident in tho Pro-
vim-, when the. fatality happen-., and the. fact, that
they mny come bnck into lhe Province to ehiim
the enrnpensntinn does not nvnil them one, single
jot. Ah an additional illuHlrntion of the, workings
of tlim Aet, nnd it fa by no monns nn oxnggernted

■are consequently non -suited, or fn other words they
find themselves in a strange land arid if without
funds or friends are fit subjects.for charity.' Such
lessons as these are dearly ..bought-by'4he;.w6rkers
and they.ought to-lay the blame where it belongs—
viz., at their own door: r-   -. -;,,.'"       '■ ,_   **;.
It is" the intention of the mineworkers, both quartz
iind coal to take this ease and present to the Privy
Council of Great Britain, as it is a' matter that is
,not only affecting those engaged in the "mining inr.
dustry, but also those in every other wage earning
occupation. - All workers, both organized- and unorganized should co-operate'in supplying the sinews
of war necessary torfight this case in the highest
court of jurisdiction. • Every worker with friends
in the Old Country should communicate this decision to them. . ' .,-'-,*A
immigration .agents, when soliciting prospective
business, tell glowing stories of tlie spleudid oppor-l
tunitics afforded tho worker in Canada, but will
carefuly avoid using any such argument as the
•following as an inducement; 'Go to Canndn yourself; leave your -\yifr_*'and children hore until you
are settled,* but if you havo the bad luck to got
killed while at work they can go into the workhouse
or starve to death, because there will be no- compensation paid to them," Oh", no! However we
will do our part to acquaint, them witli thi*; fact
through thc medium,of the press iu England. Scotland, France,t Belgium, Holland, Italy, Finland. Bohemia, Austria and, in fact, in every country-which
has any. of .its natives' in British Columbia.
W<j know that this -will be published by the labor
and Socialist newspapers to whom we send the particulars in all of the countries mentioned, and, even
some dailies in those countries outside of'working-
class publications will gladly reproduce, as then-
is. a1, erusaiie in some countries against emigration
and they'naturally will -not object-to make-known'
some' of tlio "conditions'that prevail in'thc.muchr
heralded El Dorado of'the TVqst ' .. / 7 "; '•
; .Not only are'we determined.to give this question
the widest. publicity possible; through tbe newspapers, but likewise will have the parliamentary representatives of the workers in foreign countries
brine: up the subject for discussion .in iheir respec-
tive legislative assemblies, and also."-notify the different ' emb assies* lo cat ed in London to take such ac-
:tio__an,the*;premises as they deem to the best in-

To do this wilL-require time and money, and- nb
^doubt„TOight be brought up ,.for^ discussion in the
'British; Isles -next .month 'during • the- visit, of
British Columbia's, Premier"and'the Hon. Bowser
attending the coronation.. - These two • gentlemen
might expatiate oh* the, glories of British'Columbia*
and the,fact -that its mining'industry holds the
taiitiesand that now even the'small compensation
•istobe'forbidden tp\a very large number of'those
who have been induced to'come but to. the most
westerly province of Canada. .,,.,'
This decision is a. blow at representative government, and if to be accepted as'^a precedent all'of
the'timc. labor, energy and wordmohgering at Victoria-is so .much waste and the 42'members .night
lis well turn their attention to some more useful
occupation, delegating the administration of affairs
to a couple of members of thc Supremo B'onch, as it,
seems* that tlieir opinions outweigh the opinions of
tho vast majority of the B. C. electorate and, legislation becomes farcical if two individuals can stultify the expressed wishes of nn entiro.province....
There is another feature which .'must not be. lost
sight of and that is tho importance of concerted
action in order to combat these attempts at stultifying thc benefits accruing under the terms of,the
"Compensation Act." TVo would ui'go that every
member, of District No.'.,18 who may bo advised unofficially to'consider the question of returning to
work ponding a settlement to ask those proffering
such advice "If I should be foolish enough to accept
your suggestion and act contrary to the expressed
intention of tho majority,of my,brother unionists

'court said:     4 *   7
"There can be found running throu-iil
our legal literature many remarkable
statements -that an act perfectly lawful when, done -by ono person' becomes
by some sort of. legerdemain, criminal
when done by two or more persons act

rule in K.island, is to apply ihcse principles iu dcterminiirr the lawfulness;
.of the pxeivisc of tlu- same rigln by
a labor union as applies to a combination of traders. It has l.ecn held (hat
what oue trader mny do in respect, to
competition, a body or set of traders
can lawfully do.    ~"
In a leading Kiigllsh case Involving
this question, Mogul S. S. Go.-ys.''McGregor US.I2) A. C, 25, Lord .Morris so
declared-,thc-rule and said:   ,
"A body of traders, whose motive
object is to promote their own trade
can combine to acquire and thereby
in so far to injure the trade of competitors, provided they do no more
than is incident to such motive object
and use no unlawful means,"
' If the logic' of this decisionals admitted, but it is claimed that \yhlle that
is the proper rule as between tradesmen in active competition, it has no relation to a "diverting o trade" from
a manufacturer by striking laborers,
then we answer that the- United Hatters' of North America, to which organization the individual defendants belong, owns, controls and has registered
in many States their trade-mark or-unr
ion label. ' As we have, said,'this trade
mark* or label signifies that the hat in
' which, it is" found was .manufactured
by members of the Unite. Hatters of
North   America;   - We"  contend   that
*   - r
nn.ee of the'purpose which makes the
act illegal." -   . • ' *
,The defendants,   by   and   through
their."membership iii the .United Hatters of North America, have an interest
and  ownership' in Hh.  trade-mark' or
label of that organization.    The wider
the use and the greater, tbe demand
for hats bearingthatolabel, thc greater
the prosperity of these defendants and
those associated.; with;* thein in their
'organization, because 'of' the greater
demand for. the services of union hatters.     Biit beyond the question of the
trade-mark or label it should be remembered that laborers engaged in at least
the same character of labor, as are
all of tliese defendants,- although for
different employers and at different
localities, are directly' interested yi the
general establishment of wages,-hours
chasing the products of any employers
which shall not   fall below a certain
standard, and hence .are'entitled    by
concerted action tp' refrain from pur-
chrasing the products" of aiiy employers
not complying with such regulations.
To a less- degree-but'with equal certainty, "all-laborers  are* likewise interested in the general maintenance of
such conditions and are therefore entitled by concerted action .to'refrain
withholding of patronage from thcern-
ployers not complying -with such re-
_rnl._H.n-iB.      _n_.  having    the    same
condition to the bestowal which-'" they
see fit. The* wholesale dealers" were
free to comply -with' the conditions or
not, as they saw fit. . If they valued ■
the patronage of the members of the
association more than that of the
non-members, they .would', doubtless
comply, otherwise they., would not. . . .
What a person .may lawfully do, a
number of person!; may unite with him
in doing without rendering"themselves
liable to the charge of conspiracy, provided the means employed be not u'n
lawful. Tho object of the members of
(he association was to free themselves
from tho competition* of those not
members, which, as we have .seen,,is
not unlawful. The means-, taken to
accomplish that object were the agreement , ainong themselves nol to deal
with, wholes-ale dealers who sold to
those not members of the associations
and the sending of notices to that end
to" the wholesalers. ' This, as we have
also seen, was npt unlawful."- .  *.
In tho'case of Cote vs. Murphy, (lii!)
Pa., 1201, slipru, it was said:     '   •*   •
"The members eif  the associations
refused to furnish supplies (o those engaged in the construction of any buildings where the contractor had conceded* the,, eight-hour" day.     This,'* as individual dealers, they had a clear right
to do.'     Tliey could  sell and deliver
their material to whom they pleased:
.   .   7 .    To have said they would in-*
flict bodily'harm on other dealers, or
vilify them in the newspapers, or bring
on them social ostracism,' or ■ similar
declarations, these'tlie law would have
deemed  threats,, for- they may deter
a'man of ordinary courage from the
prosecution of, his business in a way
which accords with liis own notions,
but to say-,' and even,that is inferential from'the correspondence, that„if
they, continued to sell to plaintiff, the
members of the association would not
buy from them, is,not a'threat-    It
does not interfere  with  the dealers
free* choice;   it  may have, prompted
him to a somewhat sordid calculation;
he may have considered which custom
was most profitable and have acted
accordingly, but this'was not such coercion and threats, as constituted the
acts of the combination, unlawful."
"Again, in the case of Macaulcy vs.
Tierney,;;]!) R. I„ 255),    supra,   the
court said:
"The object of the members.of the

. A" report on the cost 6f7Hyii_'_. in.
American towns which'- contains the
results of investigations made -in this
country by the'-British Board of .Trade
through special agents,: shown* that
while the American worker. gets on
the average a bigger wage than.U.e
English worker, he is. little the gainer
foi* it, as the cost of living" here Is
much higher. **•■".'*_••'
The subject covered by the investigation conducted by the British Board
of Trade were wages, hours of work,
housing and .rent, food, prices and
family expenditures. ■_,
Summarizing the results * of the Investigation, G. R. Askwith, in the pre;
face to the report says: ».     .
"The weekly hours of labor were
found to be 11 per cent shorter In the
building trades in the United States
than in'England and Wales, ,7 per cent
shorter.in'the printing trades, but 6
per ' cent longer in the engineer, ng.
trades, the ratio shown by all tho occupations in those three trades groups
together being' 96'   :■   100. * *'.'-
As regards'1;rents the American
workman pays on the whole a" little
more than twice as much as the English workman. for the same amount
of house accommodation, the actual ration being 207 : 1,00; the minimum of
the predominate range of rents for the
United States towns as a wholo exceeding by from,50 to„77 per cent the
maximum of the range for, towns In
England and Wales for dwellings; containing the same number of,rooms.
"The retail prices of food obtained,
by weighing the •ascertained predominant* prices according to lho consumption show by the British 'Burl-
gets, show, when allowance is made
for the increase ---.which took place in
this country between Octobor, 1905,
and February, ]909', a' ratio of ir.,S :
100 for the United States and England  and  Wales  respectively.
"Thus, according to this ratio thc
money earnings of the workers in Dw.
United States' are rather mora than
21/. times as,great.'as in> England and
Wales,, and,, since there" is.no proof
that employment is more Intormillent
In the United States than in this country, a margin is available, even when

• It will • never,' be known- jusf how
many, thousands,of good hard.dollars
were spent', by the Chicago garment
manufaclurers-to - entertain their New
York "free and independents."»biit it
is reckoned.,that many thpusand-3 were
put iri circulation.-           . "-- '      ',:'
The* Chicago strike of garment
workers indicates 'that certain angles
of the strike-breaking industry are
becoming popular, and'if the enemies
of labor are bound tq "blow themselves," who can blame union men
for helping them to burn their money?
Cleveland Citizen,
About* 10,000 Men Are at Work
-paring the Buildings and „
Tlte working mutts, for many a day
have laid the steel and forked the hay;
gone down in mine and "glory hole,"
and bahged'the drill and dug the coal;
have mostly lived on'pork and beans;
worn overalls and slop-made- jeans,
and,'barring an-occasional.riot, they
have been humble, good and quiet.
The bosses,oii the other hand, don't
condescend to till the land.' -They
do not work or toil', at all, but simply
live upon their "gall," and stuff their
ugly, useless hides with what .the
working mutt provides. , They smoke
the* black and fine cigar, they travel
off to lands afar; 'there's-is a life of
ease and leisure, "glad rags" and
Mumin and "games , of pleasure."
Now, let it' be remarked that I, am
not a "highly moral" guy; I blame*not
any class or man, that for themselves
get all they can; so long as the fool
working stiffs are well content to take
the .biffs—receive th'e, whacks7and
smacks and cracks, wher the spring
chicken gets the axe—why, then, of
course',* I do not blame the boss, who
hands them out the same.'
But some day—or so, I surmise—
the horny handed will get wise, will
use liis,-brains and come Lo see that
it is .he;* and only he; the "common
one" whom goods produce that In the
world is any use. Tho writer of this
h(b')umble rhyme is longing for the
gladsome timo when every, parasite
and' "plute" will gei the large and
heavy boot;- will have to leave their
hordes of loot and, with the toiler iii
pursuit,"to save their hides will, one
and all, turn trail'to reach the timbers
The Coronation Exhibition at the
White City at Shepherd's Bush; promises to surpass any of its predecessors,
as it'will show for the first tin. not
only the _ products and manufactures
of each country making up'the British
Empire, but will show them as far as
possible ' in their own natural surroundings. How many races and nations' will be 'represented no one
knows yet, but an effort is being made
to havesa thoroughly complete representation. Saxon and Celt, Asiatic
and African, men and women from the
frozen regions'and thetorrid zoije will
be seen at'the exhibition. .It will be a
new. Babel, but one with a harmonious
purpose, that of giving pleasure to its
thousands of visitors. ■ -- .
* In the Indian section, duplicates "of
some of the most magnificent palaces
of the Dependency will be constructed,
such as the Palace at Delhi, built by
Shah Jehan, and ' the Taj, Mahul, at
Agra, Delhi, which is to be the scene
of the Coronation Durbar, and' is famous alike in theA literature of India
aud bf Europe.
About 10,000 men are at work in the
exhibition buildings'and grounds, including 50 clever Italian* modellers of
figures of all kinds, human and animal, graceful and fantastic.
. One of the most intt'resting of tlie
reproductions will be that of Cave of
Elephants, which,'situated on a small
island in the harbor of Bombay, contains some extraordinary mythological
figures and shrines of gods. A s.ries
of great waterfalls will-be constructed, representing those,of, Niagara,'th-e
Zambesi, and"Waiora.'In New Zealand,
and over these 3,000,000 gallons of water will flow every day.

remember the story of Lord Bowen. *' -    *
In his early- days at the bar, the 1 ite Lord Bow-cn prosecuted a prisoner '
who had been caught in'a house at ni_ht crawling doiynstcirs with his boots
off and carrying portable property. The evidence was so over-whelming
that Mr. Bowen ventured to indulge 11 a little irony, and remarked on the
thoughtfulness of the-prisoner in re ndving his shoes, thus disturbing nobody, and in selecting only solid silv ,-r articles from the plate basket;.so
that the family had enough forks aad spoons left for breakfast. ■
 Tho jury we're so Impressed with' theB.e extenuating circumstances that
they'acqultted„the prisoner.   Mr. Bowen never, employed Irony again when
addressing a jury. ■** - . .'

Even doctors do not agree as to the
cause ft,,of adenoids; some attribute'.-'
them to the use .of» "comforters", in
babyhood, whll? others say that they
arise from slackness in matters of
hygiene. •   ■
Whatever may be.the rarse it Is
most certain that' an increasing number .of children suffer .from this dis- '
tressing complaint, which  comes on
gradually, but  which may., b? recog-'
nized by certain* well-marked   symp- ,
toms..  The most,striking symptom is
the heavy breathing which is per orm-
ed through the op.n-moulh instead of „
through the ncstrils.     Snoring   and
night, terrors are the   results   which
are apparent at'night, while by, slow -
degrees a child loses its bright, .active
ways, acfi an expression of vacancy
comes over the fa.-e which fairly rep're- "
ser.ts. a falling off in m:nta|, powers.
JJcafncEs is often a symptom,"and •"
children  arc*  commonly  regarded -.as
stupid when their stupidity is nothing  .-
but the.outcome of their disease.'
The   disease itself consists inthe'<-
fo'rmation of spongy, warty, bodies "on "'

pears to he always suffering from cold :
and deafness.»,        ' ■„,
The early stage of adenoids can bo
treated at home, but if it is far advanced a surgeon should remove the
adenoids by operation.*' Although a
comparatively, simple operation, tho
child must be"put under.chloroform.
If the operation is performed at home,
the child should be kept in bed for '
twenty-four hours and should bo kept
warm and quiet for a fow days, If tne
operation .is done* at a, hospital,-tho
parent-should Insist on the child being
kept in .until next day, and not, ns is
so often done, turned,out as soon.aa
the oporation is over.' * -
Whatever" may bo the cause of adenoids it Is cer,taf;i that their prevention
lies in attention to the general health.
Good food, plenty bf exercleo in tho
open nlr, warm clothing, particularly
ovor the lower part of tho-body «ind.
tho uppor, part of tho Tegs,   will   do-
much   to   keep   off tho 'dlaehse.   A
courso of cod liver bll In cold weh'lli-r
will help a child to withstand tho^dis-
case, and will even act as n euro' In '
tho earliest Btagos.      '
Ilrentlilng exercises arc recommended, but. few chlldron euro to'practlso
them. The same result, however, enn
