Let us all boost the Civic Holiday
and make it tht Ust evout of llie
Judge A. M. Morden, Pinchers
first Settler the Victim.
Judge ii. M. Mo'rden, the first settler at Pincher Creek, and widely and
most "Javorable known in Southern
Alieria, Was drowned ,in Pincher
Creek on Friday   night, the   21 st inst.
He was crossing the' creek on the
bridge near his home -wlun the structure broke down a»d precipitated him
into the swift running stream, which
was at a very high stage.
' Ilis.l.o'dy was not recovered ' until
the next day, about a mile below
where the. bridge had been located.
Albert Milton Morden was a native
of Hamilton, Out., and was ii,-' years
of age.
A brother of Judge Mordvii was al
one lime mayor , of Hamilton, and
the family 'is of high standing.
Judge Morden settled in Pincher
Creek in 13*H, and has res-idid there
with his family ever since.
The funeral, which took place on
Monday last, was the largest which
ever took place in Pincher Crrek, aud
was a' marked tribute of respect to.
the first setclcr of  the district,
Kev, II: R, Grant, of Knox church,
Fcrivk', was - called by wire from Cole-
uiitii to conduct the funeral services.
Th: services were held in the Methodist church,-?of which the deceased
was  the first promoter.'
He was buried accord ng to ihe rites
c.i the * Mason-c order,.of which' he
was a prominent member.
A singular coincidence of.this sudden d_>alh * is the fact that exactly
seven yeart before to the day,- Fred
Morden, son of Judge Morden was
shot in South Africa while guarding
communications in company with
thveJ otlur men from pincher Creek,
one of whom, Robert Kerr, was also
killed, and one, Thomas Miles, was
wounded! 3 ., "     *"
This deed of daring' performed by
those Pincher Creek boys was of such
iiiipor.tanjce to the army In the field
as to call forihawords of praise from
Lord  Roberts.
cctcd  as    a  memorial to th;se    two
bra\e boys,  and is called  the  pincher
Creek Memorial  hospital.  '.. '
Judge Morden was police"Ynagis-

in limliiig that date, whereas in the
new device the data of .the' month remains lix^d. There is only one
jiuuee of location, namely, lhat of
lhe  day eif  the week. ''    '*
There are a iitimUrr of other changes'which'will , become, apparent with
use of the- calendar. It is a difficult
matter to decide before hand as to
the merits, of any iu*w device, and the
company arc sending this out in this
lorm partly to gain expression of opinion as to- whether the public would
consider this'an ..improvement upon
the old form of waif calendar, now
generally usi'd.
The lirsl day of each month appears
at the top^ of "' the lirsl 'column ' of

i.n the calendar, while the day of thii
monih remains, in.'a   fixed position!'   ■
It would appear thai this will be'

There    is   a   commen    notion that
backache' is a sign of  kidney   disease,
but" this  is  absolutely  wrong. ,  Not
one backache   in  a thousand lias anything to do  with  the kidneys.     Hundreds- of people die  of  kidney disease
who never had  a backache—and   hundreds   who   sutler     continually   from
backache have    nothing.,  wrong   with
their kidneys,   By  far the  most common cause   of    backache is   muscular
rheumatism.   Nearly  all  the  rest    of
the backaches   are  due"    to  weakness
aad poor,   watery    blood,,, or in    the

Curious Case at Kingston.
While alien-ding to1 her household
duties Mrs,.. A. Harrison, Tlace-dc-
Annos, Kingston, Out., sliitck her,
ankle against a projection which inflicted a cut. She paid little attention to the wound at the time,' but
in a ■ few days it became swollen and
very painful, A medical man was
consulted, and it was then found that
the dye from -her stocking had got
into the wound and set up blood
poison. Then began a period of pain,
which,'had..it not been for Zam-Buk
might not even yet have been - ended.
Mrs.-Harrison says: /'The doctor
ordered certain <• treatment, whicli I
followed out, but the wound got no
better, and refusalc to heal, It was
most painful, nnd ,.sometimes I could'
hardly bear to walk. 1 was almost
in despair when, a .friend advised me
fco,try Zaiu-Iluk. II.soon * reduced the
swelling' and inltayiinialion, and . the
Pain—so', unite' -before—got less ,iand
less uiil.il the ankle' was.quite easy.
Then the wouixl began lo heul.aiid'a
lilllc,more perseverance "resulted in',a
complete  cure'? ',°   ,'.
Zaiii-1'uk draws the . pain and the
poison from a wound at the same
time. It heals ulcers,, "chafing sores,
sore feci j'had legs, ■ and varicose ulcers. It cures insect stings,-.sun-burp.,
summer rashes and heat spots, while
as a cure' for chronic wounds, eczema,
prairie itch,' ringworm, scalp .sores,
and sores due to blood poison. It js
absolutely without equal.. All stores
and druggists . sell at 50c,, or post
free from the Zam-Buk company, Toronto,' for price.  ..,.'".-
At one*5 time the' good offices of
Kinance Minister Fielding were made
fiise of to "pacify ■ ihe disagreeing" directorate, "rI)u'|.. his . efforts did not
bring forth permanent peace, ami, "as
above stated, Sir Henry 1'ellatL i.s
now endeavoring to reconcile Himself
.- to li'iinsi'lf in an effort-' to keep this
dispute out of the coiirL,-*?. - .'   .,,

stockholders in the Dominion coal
company aie not. at all satisfied wieli
■" husiiiuss which has been transacted
by""'lie directors of the coal company,
who are niso directors of tin* steel
What, the Ledger -and lots of other
peoplewoiild"'lik(> to know is wily a
system which is .capable, of bringing
about such a state of affnivs as that
existing between these two coinpati-
1  its should be allowed to exist,
A law that makes il possible • for
such tliiiigs to transpire Ims something .wrong with its construction mul
application, and should he amended
so as to eliminate tlie possib lily of
,. such occurrences. No wonder that
minds arc changed in one night (rom
n peaceful 'to n warlike attitude,
When stockholders,, awake to the
fact thnt their, director,1' have n.fltal or
.greater •intorost in lu'other voiupuny
with which their own company is doing business with the .saute people ns
directors as nrc acting for them, it

It ought to he law aft inflexible in

a man will work lie shall liotli rest
and 'flat, and shall not Iw '■harassed
by any question of how his repose
and his provision shall come, Noth-
Ing less ideal tlniii this satisfies the
reason, Hut in our state of Ui,iii(,'s lio

free license  which the city    seems    to
have l-.een   allowing..some   enterprising
man to run  not  one,  but  many,    of
lIiosi moiiey-grabhi'ig  devices  called a
nicklu-iu-ilie-slol_ machine in' this city.

cept 'the man   who   owns   thorn.     AVe
