II. Murtin, Fernie;'E. Christie, Bellevue; J. Larsen,
Jjethbridge, and F. Wheatley, Bankhead, also International Board Member D. Rees.
Many matters concerning the^vork of the District
■wertj dealt with, the one most important being that
regarding the unemployed problem, Jt was decided to distribute amongst the ■ membership the
sum of 7,500 dollars with.a view of giving relief
to the most urgent eases. The Boijrd recognized
their inability to adopt any practical scheme that
would be the means of alleviating the distress that
is common throughout the District, but as will be
noted by the wire sent to. Premier Borden were of
the opinion that,the Federal Government should
act in the matter immediately:  ■

AV. of A., lias been seriously concerned, especially in view of the fact that the coal miners,
represent tbe large majority of workers in Lhe
localities under our jurisdiction, we would respectfully state that we have from time to time
received promises from the Provincial Governments that they would cope with the situation, but nothing practical has been accom*

your Government should take such steps that
will at least meet the urgency of the situation.

suburb of Fernie, the necessity of a
school is apparent, but to those wbo do

well to state a few facts. .There are

This action came on for trial before
Mr. Justice Macdonald in Fernie yesterday. The action was dismissed, but
it is considerable consolation for the
workingman to know that the point of
the case in which the average worker
is concerned was decided ln the plaintiffs favor. The Crow's Xest Pass
Coal Co. were found by His Lordship
to have been guilty of negligence ln
not providing a safe place for the
workman to work iu while operating
the dinkey or locomotive for hauling
coal. AH coal companies hereafter
found guilty of using locomotives
which are not standard types, or in
which the motorman is not protected
by a sufficient cab or by flariges projecting from the rear of the buffer or
buffer-beam, to prevent cars from interlocking with the rear of the locomotive, will .be liable for any accident which occurs in consequence
thereof. The reason why the action
was lost was because the court found
the plaintiff guilty of contributory
negligence and of having accepted the
risk of bis employment for Increased

giving an acre of land (our own selection) free, for the school site. The

start was made to clear the brush. Mr.

kindly, gave us a donation of ten del.

long deferred act. The ''appointed day" i.s defined in the Act as "the first Tuesday in the eighth
month after the month in which the Act is passed."
Hence, as the Act was passed in September, it
should have come into operation on the fir.st Tuesday in .'May. ''.The Irish'Parliament" so runs the
act. "shall be summoned to meet not later than
four months after the said Tuesday.     According lo

be prominently in the lime light.
"Resolved, that we extend to John K. Lawson.
David Robb. Hen Richardson. Louis Zancanelli and
suit of suoh legislation, a wouderful
im-provemeiit in the Exchequer but no
one has been able to prove that it
decreased the unemployed problem or
gave the workers a greater share of
their product.
During the early factory peniod in
England women and children were
hired in such large numbers that, as
ono Dr. Aiksn stated in 1795: "As a
result of improved machinery, domestic life was seriously endangered on
acruint of fem.ite labor in ..he- factories " Laws against child labor have
been enacted. Why? VtecaiiKe continued exploitation of children would
ireah physical degen^raty ot ui-j slave,
in other words, would mean thc death
of the goose that lays the golden egg.
Then tite reformer gets busy exposing
the horrors of child labor and the
workers begin tq look around and
agree with him. They think he is a
marvellous Individual, he is so clever
and sympathetic, 'nut if one of thrown class, who has been looking
around at conditions, digging beneath
ihe surface of things, gets out and
titles to expose the attitude of these
reform movements, the working class
will say that he is too radical. The
working class must realize that the
joib they worship so" religiously is crucifying them. It is not a job they ■
need, but the knowledge that they produce the wealth of the world, that
• there are facilities of production In existence to enable the working class to
produce more than epough food, clothing and shelter, to supply the wants of
every man, woman and child.
The voters of B. C. have been asked
to  build   railroads  at every election
past; these railroads have been built!
and the B. C. voters are no better off, i
Railroad policies should interest only i
those who own them. j
Compensation acts are to compen-i
sate those who produce the wealth of
the. world. There, is no clause In these
acts for injured politicians, stock exchange patrons, shareholders in the
Standard Oil, or the C. P. R„ but those
who run the industries of this country
are' to be compensated by those who
do nothing but live on the wealth that
the working class produce. Just
fancy a couple of robbers holding you
up for a hundred "bones," and just as
they were getting away assistance
comes and holds theni up. Would you
make a settlement to let them off if
they gave you ten dollars? Why!
you would want the whole cheese back
and you wouldn't be satisfied till you
got it. Well, capitalism exploits from
the working class all the wealth they
produce and gives them back wages
(Mr. W. J. Donovan, of New*
Edinburgh, Out,, writes, "For.
two years I suffered with bleeding piles. The pain was most
' intense. I tried first one and-
then another,.of the so-called.-
remedies, ibu't without effect.
At last I decided to try Zam-
Buk. This- gave quick relief
from the dull gnawing pain,
and perseverance with Zam-
Buk'entirely cured me."
'Mr. Henry S. Fougere, -Poula-
mond, N.S., says,—"I suffered
terribly with piles and could not
find anything to give relief until,
I tried Zam-Buk. The first few
applications eased the pain. I
■continued using Zam-Buk and
am now completely cured."
The above letters are taken
from hundreds which have been
received from men and women
have ended their suffering from
piles by using Zam-Buk. Why
not do likewise
Whether it be Piles, Eczema,
Ulcers, or other skin disease,
Zam-iBuk gives quick relief. As
soon as applied, the rich herbal
essences, of which ZanwBuk is
composed, penetrate right to the
root of the trouble, stop the irritation and stimulate the
growth of new healthy tissue.

Pure, rich blood can flow only in a
clean body. Now, a clean body is one
in -which the waste matter is regularly
and naturally eliminated from 'the
system. The blood cannot be pure
when the skin action is weak, when
the stomach does not digest the food
properly, when the bowels do not move
regularly, when the kidneys are
strained or overworked.
Pure blood is the result of perfect
health and harmony of stomach, liver,
bowels, kidneys and skin.
"Frujt-a-tives", by their wonderful
action on all these organs, keeps the
whole system as clean as Nature intended our bodies to be clean.
"Fruit-a-tives" tones up, invigorates, strengthens, purifies, cleans and
gives pure, rich, clean blood tbat is, iu
truth, the stream of life.
"Fruit-a-tives" is sold by all dealers
at 50c. a box, 6 for $2.50 trial size 25c.
or sent postpaid on receipt of price by

ply of the legs and feet. The larger
branches, wherever given ot, divide
and subdivide into branches of very
minute diameter. The minute branches pass into capillaries. Capillaries
are a network of fine vessels that
transmit the blood from lhe minute
branches of the arteries to the minuto
The Venoua System
The venous system begins In small
vessels that are slightly larger than
the capillaries from which they spring.
The vessels unite into larger and larger veins until they terminate In the
two venae cavae (large veins) which
empty Into the right side fo the heart.
The arteries and veins ore continuous with each other by means of the
heart und by means of this fine network ol small vestals and capillaries.
The Circulation of tha Blood
From the right .side of the heart the
bright red blood that flows, usually In
gushes, with each beat ot the herfrt.
'llie blood ln the capillaries Is also
bright red in color but in case of bleeding from these small vessels the blood
oozes slowly from the wound. The
blood in the veins is dark red or blue
ln color and Is circulating; back to the
heart. Weed ing from a vein may be
known by a continuous flow of dark
red or blue blood.
The Respiratory System
The essential part ot respiration
(breathing) la tho exchange of the
carbonic acid gas in the blood for the
oxyften in tbe air, wblch takes place
In the lungs. The respiratory apparatus consists of the nose, pharynx,
trachea (windpipe), bronchial tube*
and lungs.
The noso Is not only an organ or
respiration, but also of the sense of
smell. Through tho nose the air Is

Tlie trachea or windpipe ls ,a cylindrical tube about 4»i laches long extending trom the larynx down the front
of the neck into the thorax, whero It
dlvldeB into tho .bronchial tubes.
Tbe bronchial tubes divide Into a
great number of small branches, which
in turn divide Into still smaller branches and finally terminate In numberless small dilated cavities or paunches,
known as tbe air cells. These air
ceils ln turn form lobules, which together make up lobes that form the
The lungi are two large, slate-colored, cone-shaped, membranous sacs
composed of a soft, spongy and very
elastic tissue. The Interior of the
B!ics communicates freely with the out-
hMp nlr through tho bronchial tubes,
trachea, etc., whereas the outside of
the sacs Is protected from atmospheric
pressure by the walla of the chest.
The atmospheric pressure on the In*
xlde of the lungs expands them until
thoy fill the entire thoraclo cavity. If
the wall of the thorax la opened so
au to make communication with,tko
outside air, or If the wall of the lung
ia pierced so that the air ean commwnl-
cute with the pulmonary cavity, then
at onco the lung shrinks or collapses,
because the pressure Is equalised In
the outside and Inside of ibe sacs. Thc
lung substance la composed chiefly of
uh ttll*. The •nails of the air eril*
consist of very thin layers ot lining
eells surrounded br wide, thin-walled
blood vessels, By tltie mrrangeineut
only a very delciate membrane la interposed between the etr on tbo ono
«ldo and the blood on lh* otber. so
thit gates are readily exehnngel be-
tveen the two. Tho vetloni blood
rrom the system la broutht to the capillaries of tbe lungs. Tbe air cell*
receive tbe carbonic acid gns and
waste matter with which the blood
U laden. A new supply of oxygen Is
taken m by tbt red blood Mils. In

by which oxygen Ib tStcen Into the
body aod carbonic acid gae Is expelled. It the body ls to properly perform ita function nnd life to continue,
oxygen muBt be constantly supplied.
Continued breathing of atuffy or stale
air impairs the vHallty and renders
one liable to diseano. Air low ln oxygen or containing much canbon dioxide 1s unfit tor breathing. The prolonged breathing of such air will produce a condition of asphyjeia and finally doath. To lniure good health, it
Is estimated that a person requires at
least 1.000 cubic feet of air space, and
thc aii breathed should be frequently
renewexl through proper ventilation.
The Digestive System
The digestive or alimentary apparatus consists primarily of a loiifi tubo
composed of the mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, and Intestines, with
tho tfallvury glands, liver, and pan-
crcua as Accessory organs- This canal
Is about 30 feet long and vurle* In diameter, it extends from the mouth
to {ho anus. Its functions are, first,
to separate the nutrive material from
the food and expel the residue from
the body; nnd, second, to convert tho
nutritive matter Into such form tbst
It can be easily absorbed Into tbe
blood and be utilised -by tbe tissues as
To get a clear understanding of bow
this Is accomplished a knowledge of
the separate parta forming the digestive apparatus f« neeicsnary. Thr» ijues-
tion of food, lit preparation, digestion,
and assimilation Is auch a vital one
and so affects health and efficiency
thai a thorough knowledge by first aid
men of tbe anatomy ani physiology
of tbe digestive system seems essential.

These waste products arw carbonic
acid gas, salts, urea, and Water, They
are continually brought Into the blood
by tho circulation through tbe capll«„
laries. Life snd health depend upon •
the blood ridding itself of these poisonous products through the lungs, skih
and kidneys.
Suggested Topics for Further Study
Tne lungs as an excretory organ;
the skin as an excretory organ; the
kidneys as an excretory organ.
Tha nervous Syatem
Tbe different systems of the body
are kept ln touch with each otber by
the nervous system and the functions
and j workings of the organs are con.
trolled and regulated by It Tbo
elements comprising the nervtous system are nerve cells or centers, snd
nerves. The nerves are round cords
consisting ot nerve fibers wbleb form
connections -between the centers snd
ends of the nerves. The fibers can
transmit nervous Impressions and nre
ot two kinds, according to the function tbey perform. Those that convey impressions from their tips to
their centers are sensory nerves;
those that transmit Impression* from
these centers to the parta with which
I tboy are connected are called motor
nerves. The nerve centers are bunches
of nerve cans snd sre distribute in
tbe brain, spinal cord, nnd ganglia.
They receive and send out nervous impressions.
The nervous system is divided Into
tho cerebrospinal a-nd sympathetic systems; the former Is composed jf large
nerve centers In tbe brtin and spinal
cord, (ho latter Is t scries of si.mll
comers termed ganglia running along
on cither side of the spine. The net-
votu. system Ss l» complex to be discussed In detail here.
