Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta Ti^i L?5rf*'BmDGR DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVEN The Returning Soldier By H. F. QAD8BY) Somello^* or other tho generalB and colonola whom I iutei'vieweil o-^oVaefta 8, we arrive at ,the cohcluelon fhjst we reabsorbed some iiBVenty-sIx thousand during the course ot^lhe war and t,he8e, of course, are not to bo ponBidered as a. ueir complicfttiojj of ,thfl!;,libpr prob-,lem. � ' � This seventy-alx thousand consists of wounded who have already been provided' with pensions aeoording to their disability, and Joba according lo their ability, and tmfIta-'.'Crpcks" as they caHjthejn-who did noj; get any flarm#rs ^dfyyeryfew of them do^They r#t^I�> $ake a vacation or visitN^iew places^ ^and consequently are wearing th;eni^' selves out and ruining their^nstitu^ tions.^ _ - --.��--kr YoifWiilMa^ ^ /More.Mon^' 6y ispendhigTli-ratMCT.

O. ttBltft SMM* � \i�f,.�aat�a,:Wa�rta�i��,-'v?".'irr?-',i''-'v'j.'i turtlier than England Yeoauso a medical board over there refused to let them go to the war although a medical board ovsr Iiere had no objertlon to lotting them go on the pay roll. As one might expect, most of tho grouching has come from the erodes who value their Bervlces to Canada in in-verae .proportion to the blood they' were not allowed to shed. Tliey liavo been re-absorbed in one way or another. In many cases Jobs have been made for them. It some of them have no jobs now it has not been for. lack of work offering. / Wo can viTito that' account off with tho reflection that the returned soldier who didn't fit in while the war was on won't fit in any better now that the war is over. There will always be a certain number who, won't want to work at all on the principle that they did their bit once, or went through the gestures, and that Canada owes-them a soft living ever afterv/arris. Considering the halt million men whom Canada had in arms these slackers ot peace are a very small percentage indeed. .The immediate problem is the one hundred and thirty-one thousand jobless soldiers, real pukka, fighting men, who will be, coming back to Canada in the next twelve months. Many^f them will be strong and well and will want strong men's jobs. Sonie ot  them-the partially disabled-will be only forty, fltty, sixty, eighty per cent, eeticient, and will want, jobs to suit. Strong and weak they have, as willing heroes, the first claim on such suit able jobs as the renewed activities of peace may provide. A small percentage ot them, born drrtters, wiU not want to lift anything lieav/er than a pay envelope for the remainder of their natural Hve;a. If we could mot digest these fellows before the war, i we cannot do it now. There will be honest pay for honest work tor everybody that wants it. We may, I think, cut down that figure of one hundred and thirty-one thousand by twenty^five thousand. My guess, is that there will always bp a goodly number of Canadians who will not want to come back to'Canada so long as there is soldiering in. Europe. Soldiering is their trade. It suits their adventurous spirit. They like ithe camaraderie, the open air, the jour-neylngs in strange lands, the tumult of the guns, the throb of danger-all the tbingsHbat go to make jUp* a soldier's life. As long as'their business Constipation Cured in His 78tb Year With-tut Drugs Did you ever Jcnpw any. person who was permanently cured of Constipation by taking drug^ ot any kind? Drnia Beem to aasist Nature at tho time, but as tlpie goes on> larger doses are necessary until the trouble becomes chronic. � ^ , Internal. Bathing' is the qrily real cure for Constipation, it keeps the Colon or Lqwet Injtestino tree'from all accunimlatlou. Soon the system per-torma its regular functions unaided, tiiid there is no further trouble. Mr. ^. McLean, of Conger Lumber Co., i?arry Sound, wiites::-"I have been troubled witli Constipation tor the last 35 or 40,years, and could not pass one day without taking niedlcine. I have usgd the 'J. B, li. Cascade, since getting it 21 days ago, Jivith.wonderful results. .WIU recommend any person to use It." Dr. Chas. A. Tyrell, of New Tork, invented arid perfected the "J. B. L. Cascade" for Internal Bathing, which 'ill today the only efficient mpans pt I accomplishing the desired results. Dr. Tyrrell has published an interesting book on Internal Bathing, called "Why Man of Today Is Only 50 per cent.

It was a.light woimd ami ne expected lo be bacli at. the front in two weeks, but, being a, oonnoiHsuui- in wounds, he complained that tho doctor didn't cut hinr.UP enough unti was letting-the blamed thing Ileal by tir.it intention. He had been in tlio war folir years, having stepped into it out of a .science course at McCJill ;it the age of seventeen, and grown up witli it. "What will you do ivlieji you go back to Canada?" T a.sktid. -Hlamed if I know. This war i.s my liusiness. [ hope it^never stops." it's dollars lo doughnuts that Uw, liinitunant won't yearn tor Canada ho long as there's a fight in prospect. The second game-cock, a captain, three wound stripes on the sleeve of his tunlp which hung from the bedpost, had, reached the mature age of twenty-three.- -He reckoned that he ought to be back in the show, in say a month, the shrapiie! hadn't done any.real harm to his leg, although it might leave him with a limp for a little while-not enough, however, to interfere .'with his work. Pie had been A country school teacher in Nova Scotia, b^tore the war, but the last thing: he -sighed to go back to was school teaching.- "No sir," he said, "this war is .good enough for mo. It I had my ' way-it would go on for keeps." ,�� The third ot the game-cocks-shrapnel shoulder, bis, second hit-was a major. � �'J'TVenty-three years of age, he had had command of a thousand men and bad led them into,battle. He ex-.pr'eased his intentions of taking up the college- course ;v;hich the war had broken, off, but didn't like to think of goipgbapktp school again. "It'll be a long-time," he complained, "before I get far jenpugh. along in business to have authority pVer n thousand men." The! lietitenant and the captain represent one ,problem-the youth of parts'whom war has spoiled to some extent for .peaceful routine. The major represents ^another problem-the Correct style worn by well dressed young men in all localities. Lace boot-medium narrow recede toe, lo^u heel-made in black, tan or patent calf. Price, t7-oo to %io.oo. Style-Plus Service at a Fair Price T �^HE style illustrated above is one that is largely preferred by Canadian business men-especially young men. It has the medium long vamp and narrow^ somewhat pointed toe which gives the foot a siini and "dressy" appearance, without being extreme in style. Those who like this type of shoe will find it thoroughly satisfactory in fitting qualities and a comfortable easy shoe to walk in. This style can be obtained in several grades of black and tan^ The price range-$j to $io-considering the present leather market, is-extremely moderate, f Next spring a shoe of the same wearing qualities will cost from ten to twenty per cent more. It would cost more now except for the fact that the resources of this company enable us to cover our needs well in advance. �~ - � . A.H.M.

Peace may riot offer' him tho; Same conspicuous dppbrtiililties but In,the long run, the force character which made him the'leacler, of a thousand mfen at the age of twenty-thrM, is bound to win a big place in the afiairs of peace. It my calculations are right the returned soldier pi-oblem, stands this way-^seventy-six tli(oUsand already ah; sorted,..one hundred and fifty-five thousand wltti jobs, in sight, eighty-seven thousand gathered, recently under the Military Service Act to be disbanded before theik" peaceful occupations have been sprlously intermitted and one hundred and six thousand who wllliiave to look round for something to do. Of the one hundred and six thousand iVerhaps" six thousand will go hack to college courses, leaving one hundred thousand .to be "mopped up" by the varidue." industries of their homo country. � : Ot the munitioheers employed in Canada, one-touvth are women who win go back to women's jobs, skilled labor will go back'to the skilled job it held before war, -wages tempted it away, and unskilled or partially skilled Ia"l)or will return to the farm, the hamlets,,, and the casual occupations which it came from. We have It on Sir Joseph Flavelle's anUiorlty i that th'e number of men directly affected will be one huutlred andjten thousand. Thus the whole a;tter-ifte-war unemployment problem Is one huridi^ed thousand soldiers and one hundi;ed'and ten thousand unskilled'laborers-altogether two hundred and ten thousand jobs wanted. ' ; . � "In fao.t 1( is no labgr problem at all for � country of Canada's size, enterprise and natural' resources. As fast as munition ^^ork lets them go otli'er work sponges the hundred and ten thousand up and mikes no difficulty of .sponging the other hundred thousand up who may be expected from overseas. Wit!) every'industry in the country clampring tor hands, with.every enterprise of public or private improvement waiting to go ahead, �ft^ith the markets of the world starv-iiig' for the wares o^ peao.e, there can lie hd labor problem in Canada so,long as men are willing to work for reasonable wage.i. The returning soldier has often said to me that Canada would look good to him after the battle-tortured land: soape of France andj; Flanders, He sighs for auiet blessings like green trees and smiling .fields-ho will be surprised to find theivoto-hunters picturing him as , a potential Bolshevik who'may shoot the oountrv up it the Government doesn't hand" ovej- the people's money to rich manufacturers in order to pay him bigger wages than bo earns. What he. wants is a fair day's.pay for a ^ir day's work-not asop-fo the Bolshevism which he does not feel. . - There la no Holshevism in Canada except in certain newspaper 'offices whepar they. knock this straw man Aow'n in order to set'a "loader, of (he people',' up.
