The claim upon the fund for ome
years cannot exhaust It. After year,
however, pensioner will become nu

after allowing liberally for this, that a
otirplus will remain. It has power to
make grants In rase of accidents
(preferably where a hero has ap

Foreseeing the probability that
cltle and employer on thl continent

states, and required to provide against
accident to employe, the commission
empoyered by a two-thirds vote to
devote any surplus that may accrue to
the relief of those In want caused by
no fault of their own.
The field embraced by the fund Is

heroic than that of doctor and nurse
volunteering their aervlce In th case

remarkable for heroism. All these

Whenever heroism I displayed by
