They are contributed by 3(1 specialists, recognized the world over as authorities in tbelr- line. Ain'ong them are Sir Clifton Allbutt, Regius profes-sor of' medicine in Cambridge University; Sir Richard Douglas Powell and tfk John Moore, physicians to the King;' Sir Alfred Pearce Gould; Sir St. Clair Thomson, Dr. T. .1. Horder, (Dr. Austin Latham and Professor W. �15. Dixon. Every year, according to Sir Richard Douglas Powell, from 30,000 to TiO.OOO new eases "of tuberculosis develop in Great Britain. In addition there i( a current, population of 200,-000 or 300,000 afflicted with chronic and advanced tuberculosis of the lungs. That this terrible "white death" continues year after'year to claim tens of thousands of victims is due largely to the ignorance of the general public nr to how to avoid the '! disease and shake it off in its early stages. Sir Clifton Allbutt, in an introductory chapter, describes how, some years ago, he was Impressed with the probability that persons might pass through an attack of pulmonary tuberculosis without knowing it. Whether by virtue.of resistance, or -by tbo mildness of the invasion, such persons .suffer comparatively little, and their peril may not be recognized'. At the same time, however, they must act as carriers, spreading the disease among others. That the heavy death '"oil from tuberculosis, is preventable is proved again and: again in different articles. " . ' . -.  Sir John Moore, in the Moore chapter on tuberculosis in Ireland, gives a table showing that the lower the social scale the higher is the mortality from tuberculosis, The death rate in professional and independent classes is 1,15 per 100, as against 3.56 in the general service classes, including servants, porters, etc. Dr. J. W. Carr mak-es clear the essential point that, with the rarest exceptions, an infant bcrn to tuberculosis parents is at birth entirely free from the taint of the disease. If he falls a victim it is due to the Ignorance or carelessness of those about him. One way in which the tubercular baccill often affects children, is a gathering of dirt on the hands of little ernes, who are constantly, crawling over carpets and floors, and thus s;et their hands begrimed with dust,-which they promptly transfer to their mouths. ' ..... .*  � 101W YEAR COLEMAN MADE MERRY AS OLD 1912 MADE ITS LAST GASP Coleman, Jan. 2. - The new year .was ushered in at Coleman by the loud and prolonged blasts from the coal mines whistles at midnight, the exploding oi" a giant rope of firecrackers, .the tootihg o� horns, the weird music of the bagpipes and the firing of blank cartridges. At the Miners' opera house and Eagle hall crowds'-of- dancer's' danced the old year-out and the new year in. The day was..'spent 3 decorously, there being a noticeable absenco of booze-iighters ou the streets and in public places. Many /sleighing parties had beeh planned for the afternoon, but an icy wind sweeping down 'the Pass from the west at a 40-mile gait, followed by a genuine blizzard which raged all night, made � the fireside the, most, attractive spot.; ; K.'.McDonald, formerly connected with"-'the local b^nk', but for the past fejy, months, witty, a banking institu-: *at Medicine^ Hat, arrived in /itf Tuesday night to accept a posi-* in; the, office of the International -u & Coke company. A contract was let Wednesday by Thos, Graham, of Michel, owner of the tpwn'site of Bushtown, one of Coleman's suburbs, for a new bridge across the Old Man river. A. B. K no ivies will do the work, and many people who have .expressed a desire homes pn the south side of the river will soon he able to do so. Tim funeral occurred this afternoon of Miss Mary Wilson.. , dining-room girl at the Coicman. hotel. Miss .Wilson has been ailing for some time, but stuck to her post until a few days before Christmas when she was forced to take to her bed. On Christmas eve she was taken to the' Miners' hospital and operated upon for a tumorous growth in the stomach Tuesday forenoon. The operation was performed by Dr. Ross, assisted by Dr. Connors, of Pincher Creek. In her weakened condition she was unable to stand the shock and passed away at five o'clock New Year's morning. Shf was a favorite with the proprietor and guests at the hotel, a! Lancashire county. The proceedings wore of an extremely interesting character, and, as the meeting wa: private, there was no lack of plain speaking. Mr. Bonar Law's reply w;l- firm In tone, and having alluded the desirability of unanimity in the party, without which the position of h-iider was extremely difficult, he advised hi:-; friends to wait until January 11, for the adjourned meeting of itie Lancashire division of the National Unionist association, at which ho would make a statement. Much interest was taken by Unionist members generally in the meeting, and for an hour or more, the ioboy >vas filled with little groups engaged in eager discussion. , At one time a rumor circulated to the effect that Mr. Bonar Law .had told the deputation that no modification of the party's policy was possible, and this had an obviously depressing effect upon hi.-: followers outside. When it. was afterwards made known, however, that a door to a compromise had at any rate been left open, th ntxt three months visiting her friends. in Los Angeles. They will take in the trip further south, to the border of Mexico and Colalena islands. Dr. A. Kennedy left today, to^wske a special course in some of the eastern, hospitals. , A variety of opinions exist as to the meaning of the instructions' sent :out by the Board of Underwriters ..for Western Canada, concerning the use of natural gas in buildings. There is a wide difference as to what they want, and what the gas company say is necessary. They have built a high pressure house, reducing to twenty pressure. They also maintain a low pressure machine, reducing from the main flow to the town circuit, to '.cn ounces or less, which they say controls the whole supply of gas for the town. Reports have been made to the gas company, also to the insurance companies, and every precaution will be taken to protect in every way possible the users of natural gas. While a large number of houses were built last year, the demand for dwellings is greater than at any time in the history of Macleod, and the city water and light departments have over one-third more customers on their lists than at the beginning of 1911. Reports from the various departments of the council show a heavy increase in all branches; the assessment was almost double that of the previous year. Prospects are very bright for a larger increase this year of 1913. No fault has been found with th=- council of last year, but the council of 1913 will have many more subjects to take care of and discuss,- a very mui-li larger tax 'roll to' figure out and a possible small increase in the assessment, rate. Building the n-ew city hall will occupy some-time; completion of the filtration plant, the sewer disposal, extension of water, sewer and light lines, building new public schools, are only a few of the works before our city fathers for this year, 'but we think they are capable of dealiug with all these. If the Public Works Department at Ottawa have any funds on hand, after buying a navy, Macleod may get a new post office building, but we don't need it bad enough yet. Excitement in the local districts is -waxing warm as to who will be. the men for councillors during this year, and as each district has so much,good material, th� members of the various councils will be good men, anyway. A. B. Torrie, former principal of Mac.ieod Public school, ia spending Christmas and New Year's in Mac leod. >  � Owners 'of the hotel at Maple Leaf were surprised yesterday to find that the shaft from the main mine was uu-der the building, and at a depth to cause the hotel owners to have th,e work on the shaft stopped.

Hallworth and family, former residents of Bellevue, are spending the holidays as guests of Mr. wid Mrs. W. Chappell and other friends. Chas. O'Brien, M.P.P., spent yesterday jn town. A Slav who resides near the CP. R. depot, while on his way home from the 9:30 train last night, was attacked by three men and badly beaten up, besides being relieved of seventy-three dollars in good currency. The police, were not informed . of the row until some two hours had passed, and as the victim of the assault can give no description whatever of the persons who attacked him, the men, whoever they were, arc still at large. The injured man is confined to his bed, where he will In all probability stay for some days. Two Slavs, who were evidently celebrating New Year's started . a row in the Passburg hotel last night and as a result one of them now lies in the hospital .with an even dozer, cuts and slashes. on his Body, one of which penetrated .his right lung. His condition is serious, and it is doubtful whether he will recover or- not. The other man who handled his knife to such effect is safely lodged in the.
