said Great Britain now had 42,000
Iloers in custody in the concentration
camps and various islands and that
11,000 more had been killed or
wounded or bad left the country on

CLEAKNG THE BOARDS.
Some Whittakor Wright Companies
With Nominal Existence Killed.
London, Nov. 13.���The courts have
ordered tho compulsory winding up of
the West Lie Roi, and Colnmbia-
Kontenay Mining companies, all
Whittakor Wright concerns.
(A circular issued by tbe official
liquidator oi the llritish American
Corporation in August stated that
these companies had been formed as
subsidiary to the B, A. C, which retained practically all the shares in
them. At a later date new companies were formed which took over
all the properties of these companies
except a small quantity of valueless
ground left to each. Though by this
transaction the companies here named
practically passed out of existence,
nominally they did not, but instead
the stock remained as an asset upon
the books of the II. A. C. The mines
formerly held by the West Le Roi are
now owned by the Le Roi No. 2;
those of the East LeRoi now by the
Rossland-Great Western, and those by
the ColumblnKooteimy Mining company, now by the Kootenay Mining
Cnmpanv. It is not probable that the
action here mentioned In the dispatch
will affect the companies now operating these mines at Rossland.)
Louisville, Nov. 13.���Newell C.
Rathbun, whi was arrested here on
suspicion of having caused tbe death
at Jeffersonville, Ind, of Chas. Good-
mn, who was found dead in an hotel
in that city last Thursday, death having resulted, it is supposed, from
laudanum poisoning, is tonight in the
Clarke county jail on a charge of
murder. Under instructions from tbe
war department at Washington, Rathbun, who is a deserter from the U. S.
army was this afternoon turned over
to the Indiana authorities and taken
across the river. Other features the
ease today were the decision of the
authorities to have the body of the
supposed lioodmiin retnrned to Jeffersonville from Little Rock for an
autopsy and identification and tbe
refusal of the civil authorities to send
Rathbun to Little Rock to testify at
tbe coroner's inquest ovei the corpse
that was shipped there.
Rathbun made another damaging
admission to the detectives loday.
For the first time be admitted that he
had a confederate in Little Rock and
when closely questioned he stated tnat
his wife waa in part of the conspiracy
to secure insurance money illegally,
although he insisted that she was
entirely inuocent of complicity in any
plot to put Goodman out of the way.
At rirst Ratlibnn had stated that his
only confederate was a deserter from
the regular army by the name of Blan-
ohard but he finally admitted that
this was false and that lllanehard was
fictitious. He then stated this morning that he had worked the plot out
alone. The suspicions of Copt. Sullivan were aroused by news from Little
Rock, that a Miss Corinne Prior had
stated tnat Rathbun had proposed a
very similar plot for delrauding an
insurance cpmpany to her aud had
said that if she would marry him and
carry out her part he would sond a
corpse home; that it could be buried
as him and that he and she could
divide the insurance money. He also
learned that Mrs. Rathbun insisted
that the corpse bo Font from Jeffersonville and now in Little Rock was
tnat of her husband.
PREPARING FOR THE MILL.
Jeffries Still   the   Favorite.���Sharkey
Wants Another Go.
San Francisco, Nov 18,���While I
interest grows in Friday's Jeffries-1
Ruhlin fight, the odds are still 10 to 4
and no Ruhlin money is to be seen.
Harry Corbett, who will act as
referee, said tonight that the public
could be assured as far as he is concerned that the men will fight from
the moment they go into the ring.
Billy Delaney acting for Jeffries,
has made arrangements with the San
Francisco Athletio club to bring
about a meeting between him and
Tom Sharkey on December 20th, in
the event of tho champion beating
Ruhlin. Sharkey is expected to
arrive Friday morning and if the outcome of the big battle is favorable to
the proposition be will go into training immediately.

i       Reasons for His Defection.
NO BLAME TO MISS STONE.
Boston, Nov. 13.���The executive
officers of the American board of
foreign missions, concerning the
oase of Mis.s Ellen M. Stone, issued a
statement today intended to be corrective of erroneous reports that have
boen wildly circulated relative to the
conditions attending her capture by
the brigands. This statement affirms
that Miss Stone was in pursuit of her
customary duties as a missionary
when she was captured. The route
over which she was travelling is one
which is continually used hy the missionaries and thare was no reason for
apprehending any special dangor. No
warning whatever was given to Miss
Stoue as to this purtioular journey
either by tho Turkish or Bulgarian
authorities. She had the usual escort
of eighteen or twenty people and was
aocustomed to carry with her a Turkish teskro, or permit to travel. One
of the missiona ies acquainted with
the region states that tlio route Miss
Stone took was the safest of any in
thnt region. The statement further
affirms that there is no ground whatever for eriticitiiig Mius Stone for
want of precaution in making this
journey.

(SFECIAL TO Til 12 MINER.)
Vancouver, Nov. 13.���C. VV. A. Clif-
ord, M. L. A., of Cassair, was a passenger on the Danube from the north
today. Mr. Clifford said to The Miner
correspondent that he had gone north
to meet his constitutents. Ho had
held three meetings. He was not
satisfied with the government, no
had been elected to oppose Jos.Martin
aud Mr. Dunsmuir, who had been one
of the best premiers British Columbia
ever had, had allowed himself to be
influenced by Mr. Martin. This had
weakened Mr. Dunsmuir very much
for Mr. Martin was a dangeious man.
Asked if he were satisfied with the
government's polioy, Mr. Uliffoid said
he did not see that the government
had a policy at presont and they were
weak in another very important particular. Mr. Prentice he feared would
be a failure as finance minister, although a lino man in many ways. lie
was entirely unsuiteu for the position
and would not create a favorable impression in England. Mr. Turner
made a good linaiice minister and he
believed Mr. Cai tor-Cotton would
make nn excellent finance minister,
"but," said Mr. Clifford, "who Is
there available now that can till the
position creditably?"

this evening at West Hartlepool, Durham and was broken up. Throe of

DEATH AND DISASTER.
Copenhagen, Nov. 18.���A terrible
gale and snow stotm lasting for the
past twelve houis has done great damage throughout Denmark. There aie
five feet of snow here. Eight vessels

HOW THEY MINE IN JOPLIN.
Mill, Office and Engine House Swallowed by Oave-in.
Joplin, Mo., Nov. 13.- In a cave at
Oronogo near here today the entire
plant of the Aurora Mining company,
one of the great zinc properties in the
distriot, was swallowed up. No lives
were lost, The plant composed a
hundred ton mill, office buildings and
engine' house, all of which were engulfed together with six gravel oars
and an immense tailing pile. On
entering the ground a short time
before the cave-in occurred workmen
heard the timbers cracking and signalled to be diawn up. The last man
had reached the surface only a few
minutes befoie the timbers collapsed
the earth yielded and with a crash
the whole plant sank into the abyss.
Further caving is feared and work <n
'.be vicinity has been suspended. It
is impossible to estimate the loss.

this season. The captains and crews
ol various boats from the Yukon were
passengers on the Seattle, the bonis
having gone Into winter quarters.
NEGOTIATIONS PROGRESSING.
Washington, Ncv. ill.���Such official
information as comes to tlio state
department from Sofia and Constantinople is confirmatory of the press reports of Dr. Diokinson's negotintious,
with tbe Bulgarian government regarding Miss Stone's oaso. It is believed that tbe consul-general's
efforts to secure Miss Stone's release
by negotiations with the brigands
without interference by the Bulgarian
government will be successful. It is
apprehended, however, that through
his declination to permit the Bulgarian government to exert its police
authority to effect tho capture of the
kidnappers, Mr. Dickinson may have
absolved that government from any
legal liability for the money paid
over as a ransom to secure Miss
Stone's release.
HORSE DISEASE IN CARIBOO.

Viotoria, Nov. 13.���Dr. Hamilton,

ALL CANADIAN UNIONS.
Duirng the recent stirke of the railway trackmen there was a disinclination on the part ot the Canadian
Pacific railway ollieials to treat wither
the executive representatives of the
union for the reason that they came
from the United States and were not
British sutjeets. It is urged against
the 'Western Federation of Miners that
the headquarters of the executive of
the organization is in the United States
and not iu Canada, that strikes are
ordered there and not in   this country.
To meet this objection it is proposed
to organize an order of Canadian railway men, distinct from the International bodies, which at present are
in contrrol, to consist of engineers,
firemen, trainmen, conductors and
telegranhers. It is claimed on behalf
of the movement that the new organization would cut down expenses by
doing away with class organizations
and place affairs in the hands of one
body, rendering it unnecessary to contribute to the maintenance of five
grand lodges, and to insure recognition with railway managements by
placing affairs in the hands of grand
officers, who are British subjects, and
therefore being spared the humiliation
of being refused an audience on
account of being aliens.
There is considerable to recommend
this movement on the part of the railway meL as if they were organized as
a purely Canadian institution they
could have behind them public sentiment which is of great importance in
any contorversy they may have in regard to their rights, which they wonld
not have when the nragnization of
affairs are directed by alien
grand officers. It might. not
be a bad plan for the Canadian branches of the Western Federation ot Miners to form a similar independent body by divorcing themselves
from the parent or American oagniza-
tionr. As a body they would probably gain greater recognition from
the mine owners ns well as more sympathy and support from the public If
they had the independent oganization.
In support of the affiliation with
the American organizations the labor
union men allege that labor does not
recognize international boundary
lines. That the efforts of unions arc
along the lines of mutual assistance,
the sustaining of wages and the bet
termont of the condition of toilers.
That the labor organizations of the
United States, notably in the cases of
the railway men, miners and printers,
at first spread all over the United
States and that branches finally extended into Canada. The unions in
Canada were at first too weak to make
a sustained struggle and the fuuds of
the stronger branches were used to
help them when in trouble. Take the
Western Federation of Minors for
Instance. There are 00,000 members
In it, and of this number about 3,000
or 4,000 aro iu British Columbia.
When there is a strike funds can be
drawn from 00,(UK) members to carry
it on, whereas if the miners of the
province were to form an Independent
order they would have only 3,000 to
draw from in time of need. As it is.
the miners say that in nn international union there is strength.
NuttiwithMiiniliii!' these arguments
We firmly believe that the unions of
Canada would be better off If they
were organ 1 red ns independent Cann
dlnn bodies, and for the reason that a
prejndioe exists in the minds of the
employers and the public against in
terriational labor bodies.
ATHABASCA-VENUS DEAL.
The British Columbia Review has
the following to say of the Alhatasea-
Venus deal: "We referred some
time ngo to tho possibilities of amalgamation between tho AthabBsca company and tho ownors of the Venus
property in the neighborhood. We
now   learn   that    negotiations    have
fallen through, so that the future of
the Athabasca now depends chiefly on
the action taken by the Canadian
stockholders. We arc given to understand that tho English shareholders
are prepared to find their portion of
the capital required and it is hoped
that the Canadian interests will join
hands to put tbe property on a sound
basis." If the condition is as stated
by our contemporary the Canadian
parties at interest in the proposed
amalgamation of these two properties
should bestir themselves and raise
their proportion of the capital required. The Venus is said to have plenty
of ore while the Athabasca has considerable ore and a valuable reduction
plant which could be utilized to ad-
vantage.and a combination under such
circumstances would be profitable to
all tho parties concerned.

The announcement made in the east
by General Manager Jay P. Graves,
that the Granny company will expand
8200,000 at Grand Forks and $100,000
at Phoenix in improving tbeir holdings during the coming twelve
months, these sums being earned by
the mines and smelter instead of
being drawn from the shareholders.
"There are only two absolutely
fearless politicians in the provinoe���
A. E. McPhillips is of Victoria and
Smith Curtis of Rossland," says The
Victoria Post. "They differ from
one another, and are both frequently
wrong. But the people are so sick of
political cowardice they would rather
have them wrong than other people
right."
A party of minors left here on Monday, in charge of a mining engineer
with outfit and supplies sufficient to
carry on work during the winter, for
the purpose of operating a mine in
northern Idaho. It happens that the
enigneer, who is to have charge of tbe
operations on the property, ia a resident of Nelson and it is also a fact
that the property to be operated can
be reached easier from Nelson with
supplies than it can be from any other
point and therefore this is the best
outfitting plaoe for it. The scope of
country tributary to this city Is constantly enlarging and this is why the
business of our wholesalers and retailers is steadily, growing. No other
result oould ensue with a place having the splendid geographical position of Nelson.
Flat ropes nre in much favor in
Utah aud Montana for hoisting purposes, says the Mining Reporter.
They are built with round ropes of
four strands each without hemp or
wire core. The ropes arc laid right
and left band twists, round ropes laid
thns alternately so us to prevent side
"fleet." There are usually seven
wires to the strand. The round ropes
are laced together with a soft iron
wire of from sixteen to eighteen II.
W. G. A ropeman and lacer can lace
seventy-five to one hundred feet of
rope per day, or can rip 200 to 260 feet
nr can clean 300 feet in a day of ten
hours. At the Ananconda mine,
Butle, a new rope will have to be
resewed in about 200 to 300 days and
it is resowed, generally, four times
with a decreasing Interval of time
after eaoh sewing. The lacing weighs
ten per cent, of tho total weight of
the rope, .
One Mr. Ormsby of Chicago is missing, and the causes which led up to
the event are peculiar. In 1HU0 his
wife presented bim with twins, and
Mr. Ormsby was mildly happy. In
1H!17 the household wns made joyous
with another set of twins and it was
noticed that Mr. Ormsby was even
more jubilant after the evont than on
the previous occasion, The household
in 1800 became opulent with progeny
for triplets came to it. Tbis time tho
father was as happy as a big sunflower and loenl historians say he
celebrated tor three weeks, one week
for each of the dear little triplets.
About ten days since Mr. Ormsby was
told that be was again thu father of
triplets and he has disappeared and
cannot be found. The Chicago disciples of Sherlock Holmes have diagnosed tho case and their conclusion is
that Mr. Ormsby has bocome tempor
arily insane with |oy and that be will
celebrate this 'ime by taking two
weeks for each of the trio and that
He will reappear at bis happy home in
about six weeks from the time ho
disappeared.

The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I wus a slave, ehained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for teD
years. I despaired of ever being cured. I
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a tiial.
To my astonishment the trial noted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen i I write this testimonial from a souse of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for tho cure of Asthma. My wifo has
been nfllcted with spasmodic asthma for th"- past 12 yenrs. Having exhausted
my own skill as well aa many others, 1 chanced to see your _ign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Aethmnlen*.
My wife commenced taking it about thu first of November. 1 very noon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthmn has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I enn consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

j 0 Ude a��'l VV. B. Pool, who
b���'e been working tlic Ophir group
!��� tlie Lardeau, were in Nelson yes-
ienlay on their way back from Trail,
,vhitlier they had gone to look after
8iimpli��K of IO'OI)0 P��unds of ore
had sent down from that property to'ihe smelter. This was only a
lest shipment to give them an idea of
what the mo t��"s they havc on tlll!
a���mp would run The returns were
highly satisfactory and they go back
notv to make preparations for the
winter's work. The ore they hud
divided by sampling Into two classes.
The first grade gave them smelter
returns of 37.07 ounces' in gold and
three ounces In silver, mnkinga value
of 8TH1 to the ton, and the second
grade oie gave 8.12 ounces in gold
and almost no silver so that its value
Wns (109 ton the ton.
Mr. I'o'.l for himself and associates
ban taken a bond on the Ophir group
which ironists of the Foundation,
Olive ltlahel, Ophir, Annie L., Ool-
denvalo and Famous mineral eluims,
on Porcupine creek, but reaehed by
way of Gainer creek. lie and Mr.
Lade have been working on it for
sonic time and have run a erosscnt
tunnel which pierood the vein at a
depth of ns feet. The vein was found
four feet wide, and all shipping ore.
Tkcv then drifted on the vein and
took out 160 tons of ore. This they
sorted into two grades, of the first
class of which there is about 100 tons
and of the second olass 80 tons. It
was sample lots of this ore that they
took to Trail smelter. This ore bore
a strong resemblanoe to galena.
The construction of the railway will
mean a great deal for the Lardean
camp they remarked. Their property,
foi instance, is now aDout 18 miles
from transportation. When the railway is completed it will be about six
miles. This means that prospectors
can now go ten or flfteon mileB further back and he similarly situated to
what the Ophir is now. It also means
that properties of lower grade ore
than at present can be worked with
profit. Just now ore tnat does not
run JlliO to the ton is not worth taking out. With the advent of tbe railway a gnat many more claims will
be operated. Considerable ore could
be taken out this winter but many
will simply let it lie on the dumps till
spring when cheaper transportation
can be had.
Among the mines to ship this winter, in order ol tho extent of shipments, me, the Silver Cup, Nellie L.,
Triune, Ileatrice, Cromwell and
Black Warrior and among those that
will be ready by the spring are the
Opliir-Lnile, Old Oold, Primrose,
Lucky Hoy, Ruffled Grouse, Kathleen
and America. Mr Pool was manager
ior the summer on the Nettie L., on
which about 40 men are now engaged,
A drift was run on the lead and now
thoio are haoks of about 400 feet so
that the output of that mine now is
limited only, practically, by the
quantity teams oan be got to haul
away,
Mr. Ude during tho past summer
worked the Triune under leaBB. The
mine is thus in a position to ship ore
Mwidlly whenever the owners are
foady to do so. Tho Ophir-Lade Gold
Mining oompany has been organized
to take ovor the bond and work the
property. The capitalization of the
oompany Is $180,000 iu ��20() shares, all
���o 00 paid ���p in CBBh, TniH wiij give
"am |100,000 to pay for the property
ami $80,000 for operation. The shareholders are all Revelstoke men of
considerable means and quite ready
ami able to supply the money as
Heeded,
Mr. Pool and Mr. Ude are delight-
0,1 wlt" tllu satisfactory returns they
K��t not only for what It means for
tbemielvos but also on aocr.unt of the
8ft��ot it will bave on the mining
C��'��P. Heretofore the I,ardcau has
'"'I'" known as a silver-lead ca
"ow it is  kD
Lade relocated it for gold and that
year he sent to the Hall Mines smelter
a shipment of two tons that yielded
13 ounces of gold to the ton. A picked
specimen of telluride ore got that year
assayed 507.2 ounces to the ton. He
was engaged June 10th to Oct.. 15th
with a force of eight men including
the cook. In tho time mentioned
they made fonr miles of trail, did 05
feet of dead work and tcok out 120
tons of ore. which ran in value from
$2D0 to $310 to the ton, which shows
how easily the ore can be mined and
its richness.
Another effect of the construction of
the railway will lie that the people
will naturally look to Nelson as their
trade centre and already their attention is being turned this way. As
far as Trout Lake the moans of communication aro quicker than with
Revelstoke and with a steamer on the
lake a still larger area will be made
tributary to this city.
Advices from Ymir stntes thai Tier-
nnrd Macdonald, of Rossland, and
Charles Dundee, of the Dundee mine,
have been there for the past two days.
Mr. Macdonald has been engaged in
examining the Dundee mine in the
interests of a London syndicate which
purposes purchasing it.
The London & Ilntish Columbia
Gold Fields oompany has tionded the
frco milling gold property recently
staked by Godfrey Birtsch near the
Yellowstone mine. It is reported
that the prieo is (35,000 and that five

Messrs. Morley and Bobert Thomson

Mr. Morley will, as heretofore eon
tmuo to act as business manager. The
Thomson Stationery company was
started five and a half years since as a
limited liability company with T.
Morley as manager. It has been successful Irom the start and ooder the
new arrangement it will be more
popular than ever. Mr. Laing will
look after the bookkeeping and office
work as his experience hitherto has
been in that direction.
A. Lean, of the Queen Studio, has
several nmall silver bricks obtained
in rather a peculiar way. All sensi-
tizod paper used in photography is
washed with nitrate of silver. The
paper clippings accumulated and preserved for several yeais in Mr. Leans
studio amounted to thiity pounds. A
couple of days ago he sent the whole
to an assayer to have the silver extracted with the result that he now
has six pounds of the pure metal in
bricks. He states that in the large
studios in the cities the saving of the
silver used in the various photogaphie
processes amounts to a large sum in
the course of a year.
BAD DREAMS
Caused by (JooiTeo.
,lI have been a coffee drinker, more
or less, ever since I can remember
until n few months ago I became more
and more nervous and irritable, and
finally I oouhl not sleep nt n'ght for I
was horribly disturbed hy dreams of
all sorts and a species of distressing
nightmare.
Finally, after hearing the experience of numbers of friends who had
quit coffee and gone to drinking fos-
turn Food Coffee, and learning of the
great benefits tbey hao1 derived, I eou-
c'uded coffee rautst be the cause of my
trouble, so I got some I'ostum Food
Colfee, and had it made strictly according to directions.
I was astonished at the flavor and
tuste, it entirely took iho place of
coffee, and to my very great satisfaction, I began to sleen peacefully and
swee'ly. My nerves improved, and I
wish I could warn every man, woman
and child from the unwholesome drug,
ordinary coffee.
People really do not appreciate or
realize what a powerful drug i, is and
what terrible effect lt has on the
human system. If they did, hardly
pound of it would oe sold. I would
never think of going back to coffee
again. I would almost ns soon think
of putting my hand in a lire after I
had once been burned.
A young lady friend of ours hud
stomach trouble foi a long time, and
could not get well as long as she used
coffee, She finally quit coffee and
began the use of I'osluui Food Coffee
nnd is now perfectly well.    Yours for
health.     Dont   publish     name.

At the Kootenay Lake tieneral hospital yesterday a son was born to|the

A horse belonging to the Ha/.elwood

yesterday morning and smashed the

Tho incoming passenger train from
Itobson last nignt was delayed three
hours by an acoident to a freight
tialn. which had jumped the track
about three miles east of the city.
The gjvemor-general has decided
not to Interfere in the oases of ThomaB
M. Heamish and .loFeph ColiBtro, confined in the provincial goal on a sentence of two months for interfering
with one Horn, a non-union man at
Uossland. The defendants appealed
to Ottawa some time since and yesterday were informed that their appeal
had been Jeniod.
Tho appeal of the plaintiff in the
case of Malone vs. Ferguson has been
dismissed by the foil court. The
action was tried before Judge Forin
at the last session of the Conuty court
in Nelson whun it wns dismissed with
costs. The suit was one for damages
for the overturning of a portable
engine which the defendant, a drayman, was hauling for the plaintiff.
The appeal by the defendant, the
City of Greenwood in the case of
Waterman vs. Greonwood, came up
before the full court in Vancouver
yesterday, and judgment was reserved.
This was a suit for damages sustained
by the plaintiff whose property was
flooded by water dammed by the construction of a roadway by tho Oity of
Green *ood At the trial of the action
in Nelson before Mr. Justice Drake
and a jury judgment was given for
the plaintiff for 83,000.
A telegram from Vanoouver yesterday stated that the appeal had been
allowed in the case of Drs. Hall and
Bose vs. Dr. Lallan and the City of
Nelson, with costs to be taxed against
the plaintiffs. Lt will be remembered
in this case that ecunsel for the defendants wished to amend his pleadings. Judge Forin allowed him to do
so, but adjourned the case till next
court and put the costs on the defendants. From this decision an appeal
was taken by the defendants to the
full court and the appeal has been
allowed. The case will thus be tried
anew at the next sossion of the court.
Taylor & Hanuington appeared for
the plaintiffs, and P. E. Wilson, as
solicitor, and W. A. Macdonald, K.
C, as counsel,for the defendants.
In the case of Peters vs. the Nelson
Tramway company, before the full
court at Vancouver on Tuesday, an
application was made to allow the
plaintiff to appeal, or in the alternative to extend the time for appealing.
The application was dismissed with
costs so that tbe verdict rendered by
the jury last spring in favor of the
Tramway company will stand. This
suit was to recover $10,000 lor the loss
of an arm. Peters was a motorman
in the employ of the Tramway com-
any when it first began to mn its
ears. A car got away coming down
Kootenay street and was upset with
the result that Peters lost an arm.
Macdonald & Johnson represented the
Tramway company, and Taylor &
Hanuington, for plaintiff.
WOMEN AND JEWELS.
Jewels, candy, flowers, man���that
is the order of a woman's preferences.
Jewels from a magnet of might power
to the average woman. Even (bat
greatest of all jewels, health, is often
ruined in the strenuous efforts to
make or save the money to pnrchase
them. If a woman will risk her
health to get a coveted gem, then let
her fortify herself against the insidn-
ous consequences of coughs, colds and
bronchial affections by the regular
use of Dr. lloschcc's German Syrup.
It will promptly arrest consumption
in its early stages and heal the
affected lungs and bronchial tubes
and r'rive the dread disease from the
system. It is not a cure-all, but it is
a certain oure for coughs, colds and
all bronchial troubles. You can get
