Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 26, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE Laiirier Makes Quei^ea-Questions Asked About Supt.

Sir Wilfrid uskod it statements on tUo Kiibjocta Avore to ho made later. Hon. C. J. Dohorty said that the luinffiter of militia would suhsenuent-]y explain the soopo of tlie regulations. Hon. R. Leniieux referred to a cable dispatch published in the Montreal OazoUo. "It. seeuis to I)e," he Buiil, 'tt charge apainst the Canadian mod: servicoa ill the army that our wounded soldiers are not pi'wperly cared tor in Canadian hospitais and then Be Careful -to keep the stomach well, the liver and bowels iregular, by the timely and helpful aid of iMMt S�h ** Aay Medicine !n th� World.

JVlaJor-Oenoral Me-yburn said he had not seen the dispatch but would be glad to take any action necessary. Company Act Third rending was given to Hon. C. J. Doherty's net to amend the Company Act, and to the bill to atneiid the Inspection and Sale Act (hay and .straw in.'ipectlon). The hoiiBfi then wont into committee on the bill to amend the Penitentiary Act. Kdniond Pronlx naked the niiniator of justice if ho whb in a position to state who would -be appointed to tlje bfflce ot superintendent ot penitentiaries. Mr. Doherty replied that he was un-ahlo to make any announcement us the appointment rested wUh the civil service commission. \Mr. Proulx understood, he' said, tliTat the name of lirig.-Goneral- John Hughes, now overseas, had been mentioned for the position. This man, said Mv. Proulx, was drawing two salaries, one as an Inspector of pcnitantiaries and the other us a general in the Canadian army. Ho asliert whether tlie civil service commission proposed recommending him tor the position ot .superintendent of -penitentiaries. Mr.\ Doherty stated that ho had absolutely no knowledge of the matter. Dr. Edwards suggested that the gov-oniment should advertise for a man to fill. tl)o post. If it was the policy of the civil service commission to advertise for men to fill ?50 a your post-inastcrships, why .should it not apply to a position of this kind. Dr. Edwards thought also that two inspectors were unnecessary.. Further a price should he put on the work of the convict'.' His maintenance should be a first charge on the price and the remainder to go to the support of his family if he had one or provide a fund for him whon he left the penitentiary. The government should also take into serious consideration the establishment of a separate institution tor the young convict. To^Iace young men of 17 or 18 years ot tfje, first offenders, with convicts was not siving them a fair show. Txrone Power, Star in "The Planter." Mutual's Seven-Reel Spectacle. At the Empress tonight and at the Orpbeum tomorrow. YOUR house-if it is four years old or older-is worth at least SO per cent more today than v/hen it was built. Lumber and cement are so high that It would cost half-as-much-again to build this year as it did in 1914. So it is obvious that cither a new house or an old one is toda,v so valuable a property that its owner roust conserve it unless he is committed to a policy of wilful waste. Keep your house-and all your buildings-protected. And let your paint-proter.tion consist of an economical paint. Use the paint that goer, farthest-lasts longest.

Rees against Wayne Local Union of the United Mine Workers of Amer ica in which they claim damafes for being refused membRrBhip in the Union and also ask for a declaration from the court' that they ar^ entitled to admLssiou. Evidence went to show that plaintiffs were members of the union till It was disbanded. When it wa.'^ re-oi'gan-ized they were rcf'j.sod admi.s.'iion. The manager of the Rose Deer Coal Com-pkny^testified that he wa.s induced to dismiss plaintiffs from the company's employ because the local union threatened to tie up work^unless he did so.

This is due to its composition. Zam-Buk is, cogiposed exclu-�Ively of herbal extracts and vegetable oils and is 100% medicine. 2nd-Because Zam-Buk cures are pervianent. This is owing to the fact that the oils and extracts ot which Zam-Buk is composed are so blended and reflned that its power ot penetration' Is extraordinary. While ordinary ointment remains on tjio surface skin, Zam-Buk Ilt-erally soaks through to the underlying tissues, which Is where skin diseases have their root.
