Claridge and Worthing
Write From The Front
The many friends and acquaintances-
of "Charlie" Claridge, who waa recently reported in the casualty list as
wounded, will be pleased to learn from
the short letter written from "somewhere on the Oontinong." that he was
fortunate enough to fare as well"as he
<*Ud, considering the frlghtfulness of
the engagement.

Managed to stop a bullet with my leg.
Am pleased to say that I am going on

most of th</ Canadians are dead or
wounded, but our boys made a wonderful fight, and believe me the Germans
Knew It; we sure did give them Hell
» Whenever the opportunity dame. We
were sacrificed, however, to their artillery. They had hundreds of guns dn
action for three days, and the whole
battlefield was simply bombarded Incessantly. Hand to hand they are the
greatest cowards on earth. They bay-
onetted our, wounded, also smashed
their heads with rifle butts; but believe me they have to suffer for It
"Our iboys did themselves fine, and I
reel sure that -notwithstanding the
neavy losses our people in Canada will
be right proud of the first contingent.
I think the battle that we went
.through is the German's last attempt
on the French side. iThe fight is still
going on and we are atill holding them,

we are beating them back beyond their
original position."
The letter is addressed to his sister,

LONDON, May-13.—"The King, as
sovereign of the Order of the Garter,"
says an official announcement issued
this evening, "has given directions
that the folio wing, names forthwith be
struck off the roll of tbe Knights of
the Order:
"Tho Emperor of Austria; the German Emperor; the King of Wurtom-
burg; the Grand Duke of He-ssa;
Prince Henry of-Prussia; the Duke cf
Saxe^Coburg and Gotha, and tho Duke
of Cumberland."
The Order of the Garter was constituted by King Edward Ul about August 1348. Since 1831 it has consisted
of the British sovereign and 25 knight
companions who were lineal descendants of the King'George I. and of
sovereigns and extra knights who
have been admitted by special statutes.
(And now that, such drastic action
lias been taken regarding the Order
of the Garter, what may we expect if
those members of the British peerage,
often jocularly referred to as the
"Beerage Baronets," should likewise
be declared personae non gratae because of the drink evil being recognized as a worse enemy to the cause of
Britain than the hosts of the Triple
Alliance?)

FERNIE vs. MICHEL

In the case of Ohio we are confronted with a prolonged Industrial
struggle unattended by any of the brutality and murder that has marked a
West Virginia and a Colorado, a fact
that might be construed to moan tbat
the operators of tbat section are more
Inclined toward a reasonable view of
organised labor tban maintains In
these otber states.
While tho coal miners ot this one
section of Ohio were idle through a
refusal of their employers to accede
to tbelr demands, other Ohio miners
were working under the scale now
agreed on in this latest settlement. It
has been contended by the operators
that tbe railroads maintained a discriminatory rate and a bill waa before
the present Ohio legislature looking to
a review of these rates. Tbls bill was
d-ffctit-t-d during the past few &»;*.
Tbe operators alao supported a bill
looking to tbe repent of the flreen
Mine Hun Law. This bill psssed at
the previous session ot the legislature
and wss presented by Stato Senator

which Is said to bave passed the legislature will havo the offset ot modifying Oreen taw, leaving It optional with
tbo operators and miners ai to the

Tbo question naturally arisea that If

compatible with good business practice (and aobody accuses then of being other than this) to sign up with

ANOTHER LESSON IN ECONOMIC
DETERMINISM
riiilor dati' of April 20th the liuiail Merchants'
Assouialioii of Canada issuinl an official call for a
convention for a three days' session, which began
on the 18th day of May at Ked Deer. Among the
objects of the gathering is the combating of the
Catalogue or Mail Order Evil (sic) end, to use the
language of the circular, ''Another grave menace is
the Co-Operative Association principle of trading,
wliich threatened and is, in fact, to some extent
being carried on now by miners', farmers and grain
growers' associations.''
Tlie members of this association are alive to their
material interests botli on the economic and the
political field. On the economic side they are using their influence with wholesale firms and manufacturers to have them cease supplying the co-operative societies; on tlie political side they have,
through their united or co-operative efforts, succeeded in obtaining the passage of a Small Debts
Act. They intend to agitate for the abolition"''of
lhe weights and measures inspection fee.
These men are not swayed by any sentimental
bathos but know what they want unhampered by
any. considerations re differences of nationality,
creed or politics, and bluntly, straightforwardly
plan the nest course of action that suggest itself to
them.
Their circular does not waste any words about
"rights." "wrongs."' "eternal principles of justice," "suffering humanity,"   etc.,   ad   nauseam.
Their very existence is at stake, and they know.
it.     They realize the importance of concerted ac
_tinn- ii wl _(rnrAi;n themselves ,'ieoordinHv.   Tniieli-1 shortly thereafter be completely disillusionised
ing their principles, we refrain from criticising, but
the tactics employed are commendable.    As indivi-
rh.D., D.Sc. (Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of
Science). Now let us see what this learned gentleman lias to say on the question. Here is the first
sentence:
'' The primary cause of a large part of this wusrc
is over capitalization, which involves a- large output at any expense if the value of the shares is to be
raised and their price maintained."
His point of departure starts when tho property is
first- bought, and does not take into consideration
the.actuating factor of the purchase (the real cause)'
—viz., tlie making of profit. Large areas of coal
lands are not bought for a like reason as a man buys
a fishing rod—i.e., for personal use and enjoyment
—but as a moans of obtaining profit from the sale of
the coal. Over capitalization means that they who
haye bought are not satisfied with a small percentage of profit by the genteel process of skinning.1
or as some term it, getting a legitimate profit, but
instead through the puffing up of numbers, calling
a " 1" a " 10," or more, the property with, say $VJ0,-
(•00 as its assessed value will be represented on
paper as $l,000,d00, and upon this it is expected to
obtain dividends. To accomplish this end, especially in the earlier stages of development when the
stock jobbing practices, in order to be most successful, need to have corroborative evidence in the
shape of large output in order to cause the shares
to take an upward tendency, "gutting" is the
order of the day. By "gutting" we mean that it
does not matter -what the waste is so long as the
coal is gotten out in quantity and the cost per ton is
so low that tlie shares look tempting to the investor.
We do not think that "over capitalization generally demands over-production" so much as it does
low price of production to effect this. The present ip; the consideration—a case of "make hay
while the sun shines," with but little thought for
the.future other than the sentiment that it may
look after itself -when the time comes.
Over capitalization may be likened to the case of
the man who bought sponges by dry weight and
after allowing them to soak up all the moisture they
could absorb, sold them-by weight (water included).
This was the originator of the stock watering schemes which today are practised on a huge scale; These
schemes are perfectly legitimate, because those who
indulge in them are wise enough to isee that laws
are made which will enable them to execute them.
Provided laws were made that would prevent stock
watering this would in nowise stop the exploitation
of the working class. The only useful purpose it
might serve would perhaps be that the tail-end investors in contradistinction to those who got in on
the ground floor, instead of being classed as contributory "suckers," might reap a little more than a
bank rate interest for their investment instead of
enjoying a temporary dream of untold wealth and
McGILL EXAMINATION IN MUSIC
Ou Thursday, .May 6th, tho examination iu music in connection with -Mc-
Gill "University, was held here by Dr.
Perrin, the-director of the Conserva-
torium of Music, (.Montreal.
Ten students, pupils of Miss West,
took the examination, of whom all passed,-two of the number w-ith distinction.-
In grade 6 (primary) Dorothy McLean passed with distinction. Ip,
grade 3 (intermediate) Harold Anderson passed with distinction.
The names of the others who passed
and their grades were as follows:
Grade C (primary), Nelly .Mills.
Grade 5 (elementary) Netty Ingram,
Alice Kerr, Aubrey iMcLean.
Grade 4 (junior), Bay Gould, Alle*
Quail.
Grade 3 (intermediate) Oscar Anderson.
Grade 2 (senior) Rheta Tod.
At the examination in Theory of -Music held a few weeks ago the following
passed:
Grade 5 (elementary) Alice Quail
passed with distiinption. Bay Gould
passed.
Grade 4 (junior) Oscar ABderson,
passed; Harold Anderson, passed.
Grade 3 (Intermediate), Rheta Todd
passed.
Dr. Perrin stated that he was much
pleased to notice the marked progress
made during the year by Rheta Todd
and Oscar Anderson.
The above splendid results are the
best,encomium possible for the teach-
er, Miss West.

The difference between an equitable capitalization is the difference between a get rieh scheme and
dual units they are alive to their weakness, but by | if all turns out satisfactory a much slower garner-
using their numerical strength jointly nnd exor- j Ing of profit. This, however, is of no real benefit

Wc recommend that the members of the working
class take a leaf out of the '"Btok of Rules" of the
Retail Merchants' Association by getting together
and working unitedly both on the economic "field
and in the political arena. The former for the
purpose of resisting .encroachment that may be attempted looking to the lowering of their standard
of living, and on the political field agitating with
the end in view'of ultimately effecting the abolition of tlio wage system. "

to the members equally, the conductor receiving a double share. To this
latter Item every musician agrees, as
the conductor's time, experience and
leadership is absolutely necessary to
produce satisfactory results.
Now, if the Mayor, who no doubt has
the citizen's welfare at stake, thinks
that Fernie should have a city band,
the only way, to my mind of re-estaD-
llshlng this musical body would be to
apply the above system of a grant to
the band and oblige it to render the
services for the benefit of the general
public, also hdve the membership open
to all good musicians Irrespective of
nationality.
•May I, as an experienced and technical bandmaster, be permitted to cooperate wdth the Mr. Mayor and city
councillors in the solution of this .band
problem? .My present occupation is
sufficient to support me, and in offering my services It Is not with the Intention of furthering my finances from
what might come to me for my band
services any more than the member
who will beat the drum.
The Idea of uniting the two actual
organizations will not be fruitful with
good results because neither will stand
for the leadership of the other. Trust-
lug that my suggestions will be given
your kind attention for the best Interests of the public at large, I am,

class—as they will not be relieved of exploitation,
as their wages are not based on the profit nor on tho
loss that may be involved in an undertaking, but
upon the competition'that'obtains in the labor market. This last statement of ours is dearly proven
by the conditions that prevail in those countries
where there is no over capitalization, but where the
state is the employer. In the latter case economic
methods of winning the coal are practised, but the
wage-earner is not materially benefited, his pay
being .based on thc average of what it costs him to
j livo and reproduce his species.
OvtiR CAPITALIZATION OF SCANT INTEREST!    Thc waste that is going on which is of vital in
TO THE WORKER
Krom tiwu to time articles are printed calling
attention to the great waste that ia going on all
around tw. Thoy who call attention to this constant loss of iiso-valucs aay it is wrong, and often
point out as a cause that which is a secondary ••anno.
**v more correctly, the effect of some prior cause.
For instance, wo havo reproduced an extract ap
terest to tho worker is not the loss of use values of
natural resources owing to their anarchistic treatment, but thc waste that he, as a member of a class
is constantly a victim of and from which that class
cannot escape so'long as tho profit system is in existence.
As a subject for theorizing upon tho waste of natural resources affords an intellectual pastime,

Colorado and the atatea of weatern
America have been populated by men
and women who sought a wider liberty than wu to bo found lit the crowded and congested districts of the east,
and as tliey wended their way towards
the Pacific and gated upon tbe mountains that lifted their rugged peaks
toward! the start, they felt .that on
Ihe broad expanae of weatern An*
erics, they could build homes whoae
sacred precincts would never bf dark*
ened by the shadows of Industrial
tyranny.

States down to tbe scavenger who re
moves garbage from an alley, PREDATORY WEALTH demands obedience, and rebellion means the scourge
and lash of trusts and corporations.
Here In Colorado, more than any
other state in the Union, does Privilege flaunt Its defiance, and the tucn

conies tin- \lctim of persecutloa.
Tho .weat coal strike of Colorado
has ungloved the mailed hand of cor
porato despots. The labor official who
fights a battle for humanity becomes
the target for every missile that can
be hurled from the batteries of an
"invisible government."
The labor official, honest with himself and true to hit class, Is met by
the rifle of the thug and the evidence
of the perjured hireling, who degener
acy makes ut forget the treason of a
Judas to the Prince of Peace.
Thc Coal Barons of Colorado have
optned the doors of a prison and have
decreed that John R, Lawson, David
Robb, Louis Zancanelll and otber men,
prominently identified with the coal
strike, thai! become Inmates of living
tombs.
The press that Is owned by Oreed
is smothering the facta and showering
its encomiums of pralie on the agen.
ctes utilised to cruth tho champions of
human rights.
The laboring million* of thtt country
mutt meet the emergency. The "turn
mer patriot" and the "aunshlne warrior" may thlrk and falter, but men
with red blood surging through their
velnt will stand with tbelr facet to
the foe, and measure tteel with the
oligarchy, that sneera at law and
laughs at human rights, garbed In the
livery of labor.
The coal flelda of Colorado have
been Russlanlied and Laa Animas and

The stability of government, the tu
premacy of law and the maintenance
of constitutional liberty real upon the
shoulders of the bone and brawn ot a
nation, and tbe aturdy manhood whote
labor haa snatched deserts from the
wilderness and made them gtrdent of
beauty, who bave planted the tymbols
of civilisation on the hlghett peak* of

has been precipitated by remorteless
greed, and when the battle It finished,

Mrs. Elgin Cossett, Joggin
Bridge,' N.S., says:— "When
my little daughter was five
months old a rash broke out
on her face and body. I called
in a doctor, who stated that it
was eczema, and treated her
for it. His treatment, how-
ever, did not bring any relief,
and the child got worse. I
then tried a great many salves
and so-called eczema cures,
but nothing proved of any
benefit. The sores continued
tp spread, and became one
large mass. One day a friend
advised me to give Zam-Buk a
trial. I did not have much
faith in Zam-Buk working a
cure, but as there could be no
barm in trying it; I obtained a
supply.
At that time the disease had
defied all remedies for over a
year. By the time I had used
one box of Zam-Buk there was.
• marked Improvement. I
continued the Zam-Buk treatment and day by day the sores
showed slgnt of improvement.
Finally Zam-Buk banished
every trace of the disease."
For the tender delicate skin
of babies, nothing equals Zam-
Buk. Unlike other ointment*.
lt is purely herbal.
Use Zam-ftuk for cuts,
burns, bruises, eczema, piles,
cold sores, chapped hands, and
all skin diseases and injuries.
At all druggists and stores Mc
box. Name " Zam-Buk " lt on
every box, refuse substitutes.

Regular meeting of Local 431 convened as usual, with president iu the
chair and a good crowd present.
Correspondence was read from Local
1058 who are'endeavoring to arrange
a meeting between the various Locals
in the immediate neighborhood to discuss doctor arrangements. Whilst we
are perfectly satisfied with our own
doqtor's contract, nevertheless we are
quite willing to co-operate with those
who are not so fortunate, If by so doing we can improve their position. Secretary Burke will attend the meetnig,
Secretary 'Burke reported having ac-
companied VicetPresldent Gralr.i:n to
Blairmore to interview the general
manager re some of our disputes. The
question of make-up so far as it effected those working in the "raises,"
was amicably settled, but those working ln the "breasts up the pitch" must
possess themselves in patience for the
time being. Several matters of minor
importance were settled.
. A number of Germane and Austrians
were laid off last week and as a result the Pit Committee interviewed
the super and reported as follows:
"That the men who were laid off had
had a fair share of what work had
been/going, and that others must be<
given a chance."
"May 4th, 1915
; "This Is to certify that we, the undersigned, were appointed a coumiltiee
by Local 431' to examine No. 1- Mire
oppyated by the West Canadian Collieries- Co, and.do hereby declare as
follows: The said No. 1 Mine from

said place we found it clear of gas.

"John A. Barwick,
"William Patterson."
As the result of an interchange of
correspondence between Secretary
Christopher of Blairmore Local and
Mr. Herron, a meeting was arranged to
take place at Blairmore to consider
ways and means to alleviate the present state of unemployment which is
so prevalent at this end of the district.
Among those attending the meeting
were Secretaries Burke, Christopher
end Johnston (Coleman), Vice-President Graham. Bellevue was further
represented by Messrs. T. M. Burnett
and James Naylor.     After the usual

"The primary cause ot a large part
of this waste is over-capitalization,
wblch involves a large output at any
expense If tbe value of the shares Is
to be raised and tbelr price maintained. Over-capitalisation generally demands overproduction which In turn
almost Invariably involves waste at
some stage of the progress of the metal
from the mine to tbe consumer.
"Perhaps the most terlous waste
which Is taking place in the Dominion
at the present time In connection with
Its mineml resources is afforded by
the mining and utilisation of coal.
"In the first place. In mining a coal
seam from 50 to 90 per cent of tbe coal
Is left In the workings for the purpose
of supporting the roof. Of the coal
which ts taken out snd burned under
boilers in the usual manner, only about
12 per cent ot the total energy Is developed. That!» to say, we secure for
useful purpoies only about five per
cent of the total energy contained In
the coal of the area.   If tbe coal Is
sence of Danny McMillan who left for
the East.
Joe Cash was on business \u camp

The homesteaders here are all wearing big smiles just now, brought about
by the good soring rains of last week.
May -they keep smiling.
At the last regular meeting of the

Mrs. Kelly Advises all Women
to Take "Fruit-a-Tives"
Hagbrsviu,b, Ont.,Aug. 26th. 1913.
"I can highly recommend "Fruit-a-
tives" because they did me an awful
lot of good and I cannot speak too
highly about tbem. About four years
•go, I commenced taking "Fruit-a-
tives" for a general break-down aud
they did me a world of good. We
bought a good many dollar's worth,
but it was money well spent because
tbey did all thst you claim for them.
Their action is so pleasant, compared
with otber laxatives, tbat I found only
pleasure, as well as health, in taking
them. They seemed to me to be
particularly suited to women, on
account of their mild and gentleaction,
and I trust that tome other women
may start taking "Fruit-a-tives" after
readingmy letter, and if they do, I am
satisfied the results will be the same
as in my own case",
MM. W. N. KELLY
"Fruit-a-tives" are sold by all
dealers at 50c. a box, 6 for $2.50, trial
size, 25c, or sentpostoald on receipt of
price by Fruit-s-uvea Limited, Ottawa.

be kept In a mine for emergencies. In
approaching an injured man do not
get excited, but quickly and carefully
examine htm. Send some one Immediately with a menage for tho mine

For purposes ot description the
skeleton ia divided Into tho bead,
trunk, and extremities.
The head Is composed of 22 bones,
8 of which are closely united together
forming tbe cranium, a aolld case, inclosing and protecting the brain. (Fourteen enter into the formation of the
face.
The trunk is formed of the spine,
thorax, and pelvis; It supports the
bead and connects the upper and lower
extremities. The spine conalsta of
33 irregular bones called vertebrae
Joined together by ligaments to form
a long flexible column which Incloses
and protects the spinal cord. The
thorax or chest ia formed by the 12
dorsal vertebrae behind, the 12 riba
on either side, and the breastbone in
front. All Uie rib* are fastened be-
hind to tbe aplual column or backbone. The seven upper rlht, known
as true rib*, are attached -behind to
the dorsal vertebrae and In front to
the breastbone by means of Intervening cartilage. The five lower riba
are called false ribs; tbe upper three
are attached to the cartilage ot the
riba above Instead of tbe breastbone,
tbe lower two have no attachment tn
front and are known aa floating riba.
The breastbone It flat, about t Incite*
long, and forma the front wall of tha
cheat. At the upper and It ia broad
and baa a depression on eaeb aide Into
which flta tba ends of tiie collar bones;
it tapera to a point below. Tba pelvis
i» n twalu-abaped bony •iruaui* connecting tbe lower extremities with
the spinal column. It la composed of
four boat*; Tbe aaeeron aad coccyx
behind and the two Innominate or hip
bones, on either side, In front.
TM Tmak
Tbe trunk la divided by • large
oraacle known aa the diaphragm Into
two cavities, tha thorax or cheat cavity above aad tht abdominal Mf Ity below. The thorax or cheat cavity eon*
taint the luaga, heart, gullet (esophageal, windpipe, trachea, ud large
Mood venal*..
The abdominal cavity contains nearly all ot the digeatlve organa: Liver,
Btotnaeb. apleen. osama. and large
and email latettlaea, and alao part af
the urinary trat em (kdaeya, Madder,

32 bonea, aa follows: Collar bone, 1
shoulder blade, 1 arm bone, 2 forearm
bones, 8 carpal or wrist bones, 6 hand
or metacarpal bones, and 14 finger
bones or phalanges. Each lower extremity conslsta of 30 bones: A femur
or thigh bone, 2 leg bones, 1 kneecap,
7 tarsal or ankle bonea, S foot or metatarsal bones, and 14 toe bdnes or phalanges.
Joints of the Skeleton
The points of union of the different
bones form Jotntt. Joints are Tom-
posed of the follow-
lowing tissue*: Bone,
cartllagft, ligaments,
and synovial membranes. Cartilage Is
a smooth, elastic cud
dense tissue of a
pearly blue color and
has neither nerve nor
blood supply* It
allows motion with
little friction, aud
also protects tbo
ends ot the bone*
from the effocta of a
sudden Jar or ahock.
Ligaments are
strong bands of fibrous tissue of a Ml-
very whlto appear*
ance. They ara flex
ible and allow free
motion in tbe Joints.
They ara alao very
tough and Inelastic,
and thoa aerve to
hold the bmta or
Joints firmly in place.
Tha synovial membrane i* a thin layer
of connective Uasue
lining that part of
the Internal nan of

Joint, bnt not covering the articular aor-
faceo (polnte of con-
0(taet) ot the bonea.

There ara three varietlea of Joints:
Immovable Joint*. Joint* with limited
motion, aad free movable Joint* The
