FEOM DAWSON
Strikes and Stampedes Still
the  Order   of   the
Day.
Ground Thought to Be Worthless Proves to Be Very
Rich.
'   (SI'KCIAI, TO TIIR MIN Kit.)
Vancouver,    11     C,   Mny   2:;.���Late
news   from   Dawson is to   the  effect
that there hns recently been  stampeding over   a   very   wiilo   nroa.    Anoui
the Both instant news reached th. city
that a paystreak   had been found in a
ravine.Honing   into Gold   Run   from
the right at   claim 42 or 4.1.    The lied
rook where the pay   Is   found   is fiom
twenty three   ti   thirty feet in depth.
This was all staked and rocorded   two
years ago, but although   many   holes
were sunk,   only a tew scattered   colors wore found, nnd thc opinion   was
that the pay streak missed   thc   crock
entirely, anil   would cither be   found
on the hillside or else   in   tho   higher
branches   of   .old   Run.     About   six
months ago two men who had relocated   claims   about   half   n   mile above
the mouth of the tributary, commenced work to see if they could strike the
pay.    According   to   the. report   they
have now got through the   work   nnd
in   the   first   pan   of  gravel   secured
about live cents.    This was so far  encouraging, and they kept sinking still
further until near  bed-rock they were
v, taking out about 50 cents.  It wns tins
that started   the   stampede,   as   there
were a number of dlliims on tlie creek
tbat reveited to the government about
18 months ago, and arc now open   for
relocation.    The   gold is   reported   to
differ considerably from that found in
���    Gold ^lun, and 't   is   considered   thnt
an entirely new pay channel has been
struck.
About the same time another stain-
joede was started to Forty Mile, where
the pay was said to run from 20 cents
to 92 to the pan. The strike was
made about three weeks ago, and it is
thought the entire creek was staked
before the news reached Dawson.
Time and again the paystreak on
Eldorado has been located further up
towards the end of the stream. Two
years ago it was not generally considered that it extended so fai up. This
Winter several claims iu the forties
anil fifties are being worked,aud prospects have been found up in the sixties. It '3 considered by those who
bave experience and are able to give a
competent opinion that the Eldorado
pay extends clear to the head of the
stream, aud the only difficulty in locating It is the fact that thc old
channel is covered more or less by
slides from the adjoining hills, and
considerable drifting will be necessary under the hillsides to reach it.
Extensive preparations are being made
lor' summer sluicing, and owners in
tbat paTt are highly pleased over the
outlook.
Dominion creek has also been a
.victim of tbe stampede epidemic.
There Is afawmill on Dominion, and
the.owners are kept constantly busy
sawing timber foi the mines. This
will iaave the miners both much expense and trouble.
Last Chance creek Is an illustration
of an entirely Ignored and supposed
unproductive section of tbe country
changing to one of wealth and activity. At different periods minors put
down holes to bedrock, but nothing
was developed, whicli gave encouragement until iii the summer of '00 when
pay was found. Today the creek is
remarkably rich. From tbe first
claim at its mouth to 20 above Discovery, there are nearly fortv workings.
with a ro��� of dumps which in wealth
are equal to anv of the sane size on
the Klondike. On the hillsides nnd
benches great heaps of gold laden gravel are to be seen. There are throe or
four claims at the mouth of Eight creek
that are producing very coarse gold.
_t is said that tbe paystreak is so regular and of suoh width that there will
not be a failure to secure pay in a single instance.
The recent marvelous strike of Do-
Ittn and Partridge���which yielded 81,-
200 to four buckets���is a sufficient indication of the value of this loaoality
enormous dump,which cm be scon for
miles around. In connection with this
plunt there is a jiggci, which washes
the gravel hy utilizing warm water
from tlio boiler, tbe snme water being used again anil again with the
assistance  of  a    pulsoroeter,   which
forces it buck to tho stinting point
Ily this method un enormous quantity of grave is treated each day, nnd
nt the sninu time with n trilling additional cost in comparison with the
Ordinary method of sluicing, aril at
the end of ench dny leaves a clean-up
from ivhio'i the value of tho gtavel
can be accurately judged. Tbe claims
are worked through a scries of tun
nels, by which more than 1,000 buckets of high grade dirt Is taken out
daily. The paystreak seems to ex
tend through the entire group of
claims, and is from four to seven or
eight feet in thickness. A powerful
pumping plant is being put in to raise
the water from Last (Jhanee to the
claim.
Linilow   creek is on the  divide   between Last Chance   and    Boar.    It   is
the loft fork of the   latter   creek, and
about one and a half miles in length.
It has been   actively   prospected lately with good results.    Of the nineteen
claims throe   only aro   idle, and these
nre making preparations   for   summer
woik.    The   ground    is   covered by   a
concession which although it docs nit
Interfere with development on   claims
previously staked   prevents   new hillside locations being made.    On No. 18
there nre fully 30,000  buckets of dirt.
Bedrock   is   about   twenty   feet   and
there is a paystreak about,; forty  feet
wide nnd three to five   feet thick, and
the ground   in comparatively   easy   to
work, as one tire   will   loosen several
hundred buckets of earth.
Hear creek is about four and a   half
miles long, empties into the Klondike
about seven miles from Dawson,and is
ono of the   oldest   and   most   reliable
producers   in   the district.    It can be
worked either summer or   winter, but
the claims   near   tlie   mouth   confine
themselves chiefly to snnmmer   work.
The paystreak is from 111)   to   200   feet
wide, and   from   three to   eight   feet
deep.  Near the mouth the bedrock   is
forty feet deep, and   thc   only   draw
back is the fact of tho water flooding
the   drifts.    On   No.    10   the   owners
have out of a large   dump of dirt, but
they are going to devote their energies
to summer work and   make an experiment in ground sluicing.    One of   the)
proprietors has struck tome quartz   on
the hillside opposite his claim   and   is
running   a   tunnel   to   crossout     the
ledge nt a depth of 10   feet.    It is reported that some of the rock is a pure
sugar quartz,   and   several   specimens
have been found containing free gold.
An amendment to the quartz mining
regulations   was   posted at   the   gold
commissioner's   office   on the 20th instant.    It amends section 53a.    passed
in 181)8, and which provided  that   the
patent for a   mining,claim   shall   reserve to   thc crown  forever   whatever:
royalty may thereafter be imposed on
the sales of the   products, and further
that the   same   royalty should be collected on all sales   made prior to   the
issue ot patents.   The following words
are inserted in the amendment: "Such
royalty, however,   not to exceed   five
per cent." j
The order also amends sub-clause 2,
of section 4.1a, by making it subservient to section li!), in that all suits
commenced prior to the issuance of
patent shall be referred to courts having jurisdiction of mining matters,
including the gold commissioner and
mining recorders.

An act to confirm a certain agreement bcetween tho Crow's Nest Pass

STRUCK ON    IIORDA ROCK.
(SPECIAL TO Till: MINSin.)
Victoria, B. C, May 22.--The Quad-
returned from Ganges harbor this
morning, where she located the rock
on which the collier Ilcrda struck
Inst week. It was found that the
rock.instead of being in 27 fathoms at
low water, was only two fathoms at
low water. Capt. VV. Albrnn named
thc rock Sorda,after the vessel which
struck.
gant,and regrets thai thc government,
witli an exceptionally large rcvonne
at its command, hus not only failed
to reduce, but has largely increasod
the public debt,and bus not shown its
appreciation of the extreme iiifllculty,
If not impossibility, of reducing in
future years tho very high expenditures fixed   In years of prosperity."
Mr. Fielding replied that the heavy
expenditures were no evidence of extravagance ; on the contrary they
might only show that the government
was aware of thc needs of the country. Indeed, the expenditures of the
country were only in line with the
growth and prosperity of tho Dominion and in accordance with the population. Mr. Fielding pointed out that
while the Opposition talked of extravagance they only moved to strike out
one item of 910,500 this session. Many-
Conservatives complained that the
votes were too small; if only the tariff
had been in force it would have taken
$0,000,000 more out of the pockets of
the people.
The house divided on the amendment, whioh was lost by 51 to ino
against, a government majority of 4.
The sessional indemnity bill has
been passed through both houses of
parliament.
In answer to Bowel1,wbo complained of the non-attendance of certain
members, Scott said that next session
the government Intended tn amend the
bill in the direction of securing better
attendance, or else members would
not get so much of their indemnity as
at present.
All the bnsiness of the bouse was
concluded at midnight and prorogation will take place some time tomorrow.
ASSAY    CHARGES.

GRANT STRUCK   A ROCK.
(SPECIAL TO THE MlIVI.It.)
Victoria B. C, May 22.���The U. S.
cutter (Irani struck an uncharted rock
opposite Saanich at 8 o'cock this
morning, three quarters of a mile off
shoro. The crew left her at 0. Her
injuries are not believed to be extensive. It is not yet decided what
stops will be taken to get her off.
at coat. Mr. Pellow-Harvey, provincial assayer, offered to materially reduce his assay charges, with the government's permission, and it was argued out that with the reductions the
difference between tbe expense to the
miner in selling his gold here and in,
Seattle was three-eigths of one per
cent. On a million and a half dollars
this would mean $5,11110. It was proposed that the citizens be asked to
contribute that sum so that V'ancou-1
ver would be able to advertise in
Dawson at once by telegraph that the
charges in Vancouver and Seattle
were identical. A strong committee
was chosen to devise ways and means,
canvass the city, and report on Monday. The provincial government will
be asked to reduce   assay   rates   here.
R. Ii." T. Galbralth of Fort Steele, is
passing through the oity on a tour of
inspection of the Indians at Burton
City, and is staying at thc Hume Hotel. He is one of the pioneers of
thirty ."ears ago, having established
himself in thc dist ict in which he
now rosides, in partnership with his
brother at Fort Steele,who commenced
business In the year 1804, during the
lirst excitement of the White Horse
creek pla"er mining. After hi" brother's death he retired from business
and subsequently represented East and
West Kootenay for ton or eleven years
in the provincial legislature, from
which position he retired to assume
the ollice he now holds. I
A Miner reporter waited upon tho |
Indian agent yesterday at the Hume
hotel and was accorded an interesting
interview. Asked in regard to the
reported cases of smallpox on the reserves in his jurisdiction, he replied
that absolutely no eases of smallpox
existed on the reserves nor in any of
tho East Kootenay towns. The Indians were vaccinated annually in
every case where the necessities of
the case demanded, and quite iecently
no less' than 111" of tbe Indians had
been vaccinated.
Referring to the depression in tho
silver-lead Industry, he expressed a
hope that the promised lead bounty
would have the effect of restoring
confluence in the mining opeiations
of East Kootenay now lying practically dormant, and believed that all
mines new operating would strengthen their forces of men and increase
their operations
In regard to railway matters in
East Kootenay, he observed that he
was interested in the building of the
Kootenay Central, which starts from
the boundary and runs through Tobacco plains to Golden. They bad
received a bonus from the local government of 34,000 per mile, and fully
expected to obtain an additional subsidy from the Dominion government
next year. This road will open up a
large mining and agricultural region
which will be available for settlement, and will mean a large influx of
settlers. At the present time the
difficulty of transportation is one of
serious difficulty and great cost. In
proof of this he mentioned tbe case
of Mr. Bruce, the manager of the
Paradise group, Windermere, who has
to haul his ore from the mine to the
salmon beds on the Columbia thence
via Golden to Revelstoke, and fiom
Revelstoke to the Trail smelter.
Spomting of the future of the East
Kootenay district he stated that tbe
towns in that district were maintaining a steady growth and that in three
years' time the towns of Fernie,Michel, and CoalBelds would have a   popu-
mnntimied. and left on the ltossland |

In regard to the best smelter site
he thought that Warner or Elko and

that Mr. Jeffrey favored Fernie. His
reasons for thinking this were tbat
either of these points were most convenient to the dry ores of the Wild
Horse creek and the Ihil! river, and
the lead ores of the St. Eugene, North

sitting of the supreme court
was resumed yesterday morning before Mr. Justice Drake, and the evidence having all been henid when
the con.t adjourned the evening hc-
fo.e, tlie conuscl for the plaintiff in
the Peters vs. Trrnjwny Co. case,
commenced his address to thc jury,foi-.
lowed by the counsel for the defence.
This occupied all the time until the
court ml ion mod for lunch.. When the
sitting was resumed to hoar the
judge's addiess to the jury there wnn
a large atlendiincc of interested spectators who carefully watched the proceedings. His lordship's address was
listened to wilh much interest, and
as the judge carefully reviewed the
evidence submitted, it was soon evident to the minds of the majority
present that if the jury were guided
in the'r verdict by the impression
made by the judge's address, that the
plaintiff had lost his case.
In addressing the jury, his lordship
obsetved that the jury must remember
that the plaintiff in his evidence
had produced no proof of negligence
on the part of the company, and thnt
they must distinguish between tho
conveyance of pnssengers In ordinary
traffic and workmen milking a trial
trip. The plaintiff had made the
charge that the cars were too heavy,
the curves too bad, the braka. inefficient, etc., but tlie particular ground
for complaint had not been laid before them. If the cars on thc track
or machinery were defective thc
plaintiff had not proved it.
In concluding his summing np of
the evidence for the defence he complimented the witnesses on their evident desire to testify to the truth,
without attempting to favor the ono
side or the other. His lordship paid a
compliment to the evidence of L. A.
Campbell. His experience was very
extensive, extending over a large
number of years, and his evidenco
was very valuable. In his examination he had stated that on such an occasion the speed should not exceed ono
mile an hour, and witnesses for the
plaintiff had testified that the speed
had been six to eight miles per hour.
Campbell's evidence in regard to tho
weight of cars was that he had specially ordered the heavier cars because
they were better and safer. In regard
to thc difference between the ratchet
and Hat wheel brakes, that was evl��
dently a matter cf opinion, and the
reason the brake in question was nsed
was because, in Campbell's opinion,
tbey were superior, and for that reason he had ordered them. Campbell
also said thnt the momentum was so
great that neither kind of brake was
of any use to prevent the accident.
Wilson and Peters were Instrncted
to fit the brakes on the start out.
Wilson admits the orders, which Carey
thought had been done, and Wilson
kept silent tegnrdlng the fact that
they were not done. The question ot
the generator uot being sufficient was
not proved by the fact that a new
generator was put in Immediately after the accident, because thc one they
were using W'as one which Campbell
had known before and which he
claimed was strong enough to do tho
work until the new ones arrived
whicli had been ordered by the company.
His lordship did not see that tbe
company could be aware of any defects in the machinery from any of
the evidence, and threw ont a hint
thai, the plaintiff's knowledge of eleo-
trical appliances had improved since
the accident. In regard to the contention of tho plaintiff that a high
curve waa necessary, Campbell's evl-
denee wont to show that Hat curves
with guards were most generally used.
In lagaid to the matter of construction, if It ha I been proved that the
company had been negligent or had
employed incompetent men. or Interfered witli tbe woik   of   construction,

AISOUT   COMPETITION.
It waB Premier Dunsmuir himself
who said that railway, do not compete. Tills was during thc debate on
his Loan Hill, and was intended as a
clinching argument against thu necessity of giving the Coast-Kootenay
contract to the V. V. A. E. Company. The latter is supposed to consist very largely of Mr. Hill, of the
Great Northern, and it has been generally understood that if it got tbe
contract and built the road it would
be operated as a part of the Great
Northern system. Mr. Dunsmuir and
his Government did not want thc
contract to go to the V. V. A E., and
to justify himself and confound his
opponents he argued that the Great
Northern and the Canadian Pacific
would not compete in any event. The
leader of the Opposition, who was nut
up to make the chief speech in support of the Government policy, used
the same argument. Nothing would
be gained by giving the contract to
the V. V. A E., for if that Company
were to obtain control it wouid at
once enter into nn arrangement with
the Canadian Pacific to keep up rates.
Railway companies, we were assured,
know better than to compete.
A Vancouver dispatch published in
a recent issue of The Seattle Post-la-
telligencer remarks at length on the
statement that the Canadian Pacific
Company is about to put two new
boats on the route to the Orient. This
is found to be necessary "in order to
compete with the new trans-Pacific
liners whicli the Great Northern haB
und)r construction." The boats of
the EmpresB line are good ones, and
ten years ago, when first put on, were
equal to all requirements. Hut the
(Ireat Northern is endeavoring to capture the Orient trade, and to this end
are constructing larger and faster
boats than any possessed by the Canadian Pacific, hence tbe necessity that
the latter should improve its   service.
It would seem then, that railway
companies do compete, Mr. Dunsmuir
and Mr. Martin (for good and .sufficient reasons) to the contrary not-
Withstanding. There aro very few
who have any doubt about it. Especially do the Great Northern and the
Canadian Pacific compete. They always have; from the nature of things
they always will. As a matter of
fact, where there arc two or more railways under distinct managements
there is bound to be competition,
even although there is also combination. Two railways will combine
not to destroy each other, but there is
honest, substantial competition nevertheless. There is no country or sec
tion of country under the sun but is
the better if served with two mil

The Coast papers nre no less rejoiced than those of the Interior over the
lead bounties, and give the credit to
the large deputation that went to Ottawa, to whom no doubt it is due.
Ministers would bnve listened with patience and respect to any one or two
gentlemen who might desire to interview them on the subject and then
heed what was said or not, as the
fancy took tbem ; but when tbey saw
a train load or two of very earnest
men interested in mining, who took
the trouble to come al] the way from
Hritish Columbia to say tbat the situation was not satisfactory and thnt
it was ncessary something should be
done about it, they concluded there
was more than ' talk in the air and
that they hnd better give very serious
consideration to what wns said to
them. Nelson has to admit that
the Kaslo Hoard of Trade has scored
again, as the suggestion of tbe deputation came from them.
Mr. Kaiilliach. an Atlantic coast
member of Parliament and a large
ship owner, sent one of his schooners
on a voyage to Uahia not long ago. In
entering the harbor the  enptain   flew
the Canadian Hag, at which tlie resident Hritish consul was very indig
nant, ordered it down, and threatened
extreme pains and penalties if he ie-
fused. The captain obeyed rather
than have a rumpus, and now Mr.
Kaulbach is endeavoring to ascertain
from Ministers at Ottawa why a Canadian vessel may not fly the Canadian
edition of the British flag in a foreign port. So far he has obtained no
satisfaction. We think this is a
matter that would be much improved
by explanation.
While in London recently Sir

COMMUNICATIONS
THE LEAD BOUNTY.
Editor Miner,���As one of the delegates it is my opinion that the lead
bonus should not be limited to a less
figure than $150,000 per annum, and
the rate per ton should not have been
diminished by a greater peicentage
than 10 per cent, per annum thus extinguishing itself at the end of 10
years, instead of five as fixed in the
draft.
I do not understand that as it
stands it is restricted at all as to tonnage.
A production of 20,000 tons in 1002;
25,000 tons in 1893; 33,333 tons in
1004 ; 50,00 tons In 1905, and 100,000
tons in 1900 will earn the whole of
the bonus of 8100,000 per annum.
These figures will certainly be reached in every year except possibly the
last.
Even assuming that in looii we do
not reach a production of more thun
50,000 tons, the bonus as proposed is
worth 8450,000, Those who think
this amount inadequate to assure the
establishment of a Canadian refinery
should fire in their protests while the
measure is pending in Parliament.

TRAMWAY GO. WINS CASE
Continued from First Page.
there might be a case ; but so far as
he had seen by thc evidence the company had done everything in their
power to make the road cHicient and
had endeavored to employ the most
efficient men.
In the evidence it was shown tlia*-
Carey had cautioned Wilson against
the risks of Btartlng at too great a
speed, and the evidence clearly showed
that the warning had been disregarded.
In regard to the matter of damages,
Ilis lordship pointed out that the
plaintiff was not, entitled to any sentimental damages, but only for bodily
suffering and injuiy. Ho was not entirely incapacitated, and wns getting
practically the same wages after the
accident as before.
The jury were then handed a list
.of seven questions, which arc appended below, with their findings, and retired to tho jury room for the consideration of their verdict. It was exactly three o'clock when the jury retired, but not until six wns tbeir decision made kiio.vn, which wus iu favor of the lompany, witli no damages.
His lordship, on receiving their answer to bis questions, thanked them
for their services, and commiserated
them on the fact tbat they had been
compelled to sit for rive days and ex-
onorated tbem from further duties for
twelve months.
Following are the questions sub
mitted to the jury together with their
answers:
Did tho defendants know, or had
they reason to believe, that the machinery or apparatus employed was
inefficient for tho car line?   No.
Was the equipment used reasonably
sufficient for the safe operation of the
line, and did the defence use all necessary precaution on thc day of thc
accident?   Yes.
If you find by defendants' examination any negligence in this electric
tramway system, did such negligence
arise from negligence of the employees? Have you any reason to
think so? Were competent men employed to construct the car line and
install the system?   Yes.
To what cause, if any, do you attribute the accident? In permitting the
car to attain such a speed before arriving nt the grade? Did the plain-
tl undertake the risk employed with
the knowledge of the danger attending it?   Yes.
Damages, if any?  None.
The noxt case called after the close
of the Peters' case yesterday afternoon
was the case of Osier vs. Moore, where
the plaintiff sued for ten por cent
commission on the purchase price oi
the California, Deadwood and Boston
raining clninis on Toad mountain. Ihe
trial will be continued today, and
prafaably concluded.
In addition to the above there are
three more cases in connection with
tho Cordingly affair, in which the
plaintiff has entered suits against tbe
Mnardian Fire and Life; Union Assurance Co. and the Queen Assurance
Co., of America. These are identical
with the one already decided, and
may either come up for hearing in the
regular way or be dismissed.

What proved to be a more profitable lind than gold happened the other day to n traveller from San Francisco, while nt lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson, lie
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment bis appc-
titic, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mollow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just ns
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand."

WILL SUPERVISE RATES���
In connection with the lean bonus
which the Dominion govern-milt has
granted there is a question that has
somewhat exercised those who were
prominent in obtaining it. At Otta
wa the big delegation from the Kootenays asked that iu granting any
bonus the government would retain
control of the rates charged for refining. Without this promise thc
smelters might still be open to '.heoppression of the American trust. None
of the press reports shotvod that the
government had taken the recommend
atlon of the delegation in this respect
but a telegram from Ottawa to W. W.
Beaton of Kaslo, gives the desired
information. In giving the terms of
the measure introduced into the house
by Mr. Fielding the telegram goes on
to state that "the bonus will be paid
subject to observance of the rates and
charges which may be fixed by the
governoi - in - council." Mr. Beaton
was in Nelson yesterday and left
this morning for Kaslo.

To the   Respective   Excursions to  Be
Given by the I. 0.   0. F. to Kaslo
and the U. R.  K. of P. to Kokanee Creek,May 24th.
To the Editor,���The people   of Nelson have been very   cordially   invited
to participate  in celebrating Victoria
Day on Friday,   May 24th, in   conceit
with the  Odd   Fellows   and   Knights
of Pythias respectively.    The  two excursions have been   quite  extensively
advertised and the two   organizations
have gone to corsiderable expense  to
make the day a pleasant  and; memorable one to everybody
At this late hour the C. P. R. Co.
appears on the secne and advertises
an independent excursion.
A great many people are under the
impression that by taking any one of
the three steamers that will leave the
city wharf on the morning of the 24th
they will be patronizing one of the
oragm.ations that have on their own
account, chartered the several boats.
The committees of both the Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias therefore
earnestly appeal to the public to contribute their patronage to either one
of the secret orders,and those desiring
to go to Kaslo and Argenta take the
S. S. Kaslo, which leaves Nelson at 8
a. m., and those who contemplate going to Kokanee creek take the S. S
ivioyic whicli will leave ou her first
trip at . a. m.
We invite everybody to take  advantage  if a pleasant outing.

When a person has used cott'ee for a
number of years ami gradually lie
.lined in health, it is time the colfee
should be left oft' in order to see
whether or not that hus been thc eaute
ot the trouble.
A lady in lluntsville, Ala., Mr:;.,
M. Brazier, nays she used coffee for
about 4U years, and for the paHt 20
years wns troubled with .tomach
trouble. "I have been treated by
many physicians but ull in vain.
Everything failed to perfect u cure.
Was prostrated for some time, nnd
came near dying. When I recovered
sufficiently to partake of food and
drink I tried colfee again und it soured on my stomach.
"I finally concluded cotfee wns the
cause of my troubles nnd stopped using St. I tried tea and then milk in
its place but neither agreed with me,
then I commenced u.ing I'ostum Food
Coffee. I had it properly made and it
was very pleasing to the taste.
I have now used it lour months, and
my health is so greatly improved that
1 can eat almost anything I wunt nnd
can sleep well, wherens, before, I suffered for years with insomnia.
I ha^e found tho cause of my troubles and a way to get rid of them.
You can depend upon it I appreciate
