Your brake has one-piece molded shoes which are replaced in their entirety. The pads you bought are inserts for metal shoes that use replaceable inserts, and not suitable as replacements for your shoes.
You have 2 choices,
either buy complete shoes with replaceable inserts like these
, and keep these as spares or return them.
or return them and buy one piece shoes like these
which are complete and can bolt to your brakes.
Note, though I linked to KoolStop products, there are many other good alternatives, the key is that you need a complete shoe, either replaceable insert type, or one-piece.
