One of the eight first-aid cars of the
Bureau of Mines la to b-> sent Into
West Virginia at once to give expert
Instructions to the wives and daugh
era of miners in first aid work. Heretofore,
this valuable educational course

each and every' Important mining town
on the main line railroads, so that the {
opportunity may be said to be brought
to the very doors of the miners' famiUes.

taken after consultation with prominent
leaders of the miners and wtlh
