H  | BENDELLi & CO.   I  ^iUUttuiiaiiiiiiuuuimijitiuiiiUiHiuiiiiuiitiUiuuiiiiutttK  W. H. Jeffery, M.E., at the instance  of the board of directors, recently made  an exhaustive examination of the Elkhorn mine, the well known high grade  shipper of this camp. The report of  Mr. Jeffery has been incorporated in a  prospectus issued by the company this  week. It makes very interesting reading and tends to show the illimitable  possibilities of this camp.  Appended are liberal extracts from  Mr. Jefrery's report:  "The formation or country rock of  the district is a pyroclastic greenstone  overlying the grey granites. The  greenstone varies in depth, in many  places the granites are exposed to the  surface, forming bosses.  "The Elkhorn mine is developed by  an incline shaft 142 feet in depth, following the vein as nearly as possible.  At the 80ft. leyel of the shaft',.a drift is  run on the vein 80 feet to tbe west and  250 feet to the east; all in ore. Over  ��74-000' worth"- 'of -��� pri- h*vs -.been,'- stopel.  above this level to date, and the end of  the ore shoot to the east is not yet  reached. And by continuing the drift  1000 feet east to the end boundary line  of tbe property, a large area of stoping  ground can be opened up.  "TheElkhorn mine was started at the  grass roots on the 9th day of December  1902, with two men sinking the present  shaft, and the force increased to 12 men  on the 1st of May, 1903, since when the  mine has worked continually in ore.  Below the 80ft. level of the shaft, at  the 142ft. level, drifts were run again  on the vein 100 feet to the west, and  150 feet to the east, all in ore���in places  18 inches of solid ore is exposed. A  little upraising and stoping has been  done on this level merely to prove the  ore bodies,-which are,most-Satisfactory  and similar to the ore above on the  80ft. level.  "Three veins have been discovered  on the property. Nos. 1 and 2 veins-  known locally as the Elkhorn vein and  the Providence vein, parallel each  other in an easterly and westerly direction, pitching southerly, and are about  400 feet apart, No. 3 vein runs practically north and south, and pitches to  the east. The ore consists of massive  native silver, ruby silver, antimenial  silver?galena, grey copper, and iron  and copper pyrites in a quartz gangne.  "The richest native silver ever discovered in British Columbia has been  found in the Elkhorn mine. Some  fabulous assays has been taksm but the  ore averages $20 in gold and from 160  ounces to nearly 200 ounces in silver.  Very little sorting is required as .the  ore comes out massive and clean.  "The intention of the company,now,  is to sink the shaft 200 feet deeper than  it is at present, on the same incline,  about 40 degrees, and independent of  any flattening or slight breaking of the  vein, and crosscut the vein at each  100ft. level. The shaft on its present  incline will catch the No. 3 vein on its  pitch at the 342ft. level from the surface. This will open up an immense  amount of stoping ground, where the  ore can be mined and handled cheaply.  "The company intend erecting a 10-  drill air compressor, hoist, and pumping plant of the most improved style,  on the property. Sinking, drifting,  and cror��scutting will be done by large  drills and in the stopes only baby drills  will be used. This will facilitate and  cheapen the mining and development  work.  "The Elkhorn mine adjoins the Providence mine on the west, the Goldbug  on the east, tbe Spokane on the north,  Harold  Nelson's Latest Offering a  Revival of a Strong Play.  "Richelieu," the great play in which  Mr. Harold Nelson is shortly to be  seen here, is more than a mere dramatic performance. It is a direct spiritual  force���a marvelous illumination of  history. Mr. Nelson, scholarly player  that he is, has a temperament and personality peculiarly fitted to the effective portrayal of the famous prince of  the Roman'church. Critics everywhere  concede Richelieu to be Harold Nelson's strongest character.  In the revival which Mr. Nelson presents here on March 30th there will be  absolute completeness of costuming  and scenic investiture. His manager,  Mr. C. P. Walker, has provided suriip-  tuous ^mounting. The supporting  company will be even stronger than in  the recent,production of "Paul Kau-  var," which pleased so much., Clearly  Mr. Nelson's return in "Richelieu"  means a treat for the lovers of worthy  drama.  Most Promising Camp of the Kettle  River District-  RAILWAY SITUATION.  The C. P. R. wants a straight cash  subsidy for the construction of a line  ffbrii'Spei'iie's Bridge'lo'-Miciway', also  for the construction of the Kootenay  Central line.  Mcl^ean brothers are asking' for a  guarantee of their bonds tor the construction of a line of railway from Midway to Vancouver, known aa the Coast  to Kootenay.  The caucus has not "heretofore been  able to reach a decision in the matter  The C. P. R. propositions-has not met  with support, several memb'ers opposing the idea of tying the entire southern portion of the province up to the  C.P.R. and indefinitely postponing the  construction of a short direct line of  railway from the Boundary district to  Vancouver. Moreover it is recognized  that if the C. P. R. scheme should be  adopted the government would have  praetically-no control over-it,^whereas  as the Coast-Koptenay scheme would  'be subject to government control and  would afford an independent connection with both the C. P. R. and Great  Northern lines at Midway.  The object of the visit of the C.P.R.  officials at Victoria at this juncture is  understood to be to make such modifications in their proposition as will ensure endorsement by the caucus.  Champion Liniment for Rheumatism.  Chas Drake, a. mail carrier at Chap-  inville, Conn., says: "Chamberlain's  Pain Balm is the champion of all liniments. The past year I was troubled  a great deal with rheumatism in my  shoulder. After trying several cure**  the storekeeper here recommended this  remedy and it completely cured me."  There is no use of anyone suffering  from that painful ailment when this  liniment can be obtained for a small  sum. One application gives prompt  relief and its continued use for a short  time will produce a permanent cure.  For sale by all druggists.  H. E. Macdonald, contracting freight  agent of the C. P. R., Nelson, spent a  few days in the city this week.  Late advices are to the effect that the  Silver Cloud mine promises to be one  of the wonders of the camp.  The Strathmore mine has nearly two  carloads of high grade" ore on the  dump, ready for shipment.  James Dale,, a   pioneer   prospector  and  mining man, recently   gave the  Times some interesting data respecting   the mining outlook on the west  fork of Kettle river.   Mr. Dale must  be regarded as an authority  because  his acquaintance with the district dates  back to 1896.   It was to his- explorations and   discoveries -"hat   the  West  Fork first attracted the attention  of  mining  men.   He located the   Carmi  afad Butcher Boy in  1896 but the rush  of prospectors did not take place until  the following year. The Sally, Bounty  and Belle on Wallace mountain were  located in 1897-98.   During  the past  winter the Rambler, Sally and Bounty,  which are situated on the east side of  the river, were operated by their respective  owners   and   shipped    high.  grade ore in sleighs over the wagon  road to Midway, SO miles distant.  The  recent phenomenal strike.on the Sally  is well known.     The ore body   is 30  inchesj-ride a&d averages $247 per ton.."  The output at present-is 2J4 tons daily.  The ore on Wallace mountain occurs in  true fissure-veins, which have an east  and west trend.   The values are in silver. Six miles beyond, on the opposite  side of the river, is Carmi camp where  the Carmi and Butcher Boy  mines are  situated.   The Carmi is equipped with  stamp mill,  which has been operated  intermittently   throughout   the    past  winter.   The values there are principally in gold.     In addition to the cleanup at the mill,  the management made  several shipments of concentrates to  the Trail smelter.  Mr. Dale is an enthusiastic believer  in the future of the West Fork. He  takes the view that the expenditure of  very little capital will make the West  Fork one of the richest producing sections ~df~British~Columbiar- Just now-  Mr. Dale is patiently developing the  Observatory group, just opposite Carmi mountain. He is running a tunnel  to catch the lead and has already  found indications of high grade ore.  O. E. Anderson has awarded an interest to Tom King and J? McKay for  driving a 170-foot tunnel on his group  of claims on the summit of Carmi  mountain. At the head of Dry creek,  near Wallace mountain, have been  located many promising free milling  propositins including the Plucky.Nap-  anee, Standard and Black Diamond  groups. Mr. Dale says the West Fork  is equally rich in mammoth zones of  low grade copper-gold ore which only  await development to rival the  biggest mines in the Boundary. This  mineral belt occurs at the head of  Beaver creek, east of Carmi camp, and  runs along the divide between the  main river and the West Fork. Several of these ore bodies have phenomenal surface showings, their width in  several instances being over 250 feet.  Although the district has bean neglected in recent years, Mr. Dale is  hopeful that its high merit will soon be  appreciated; and the extension of a  railway up the river meets with his  hearty championship.  Mr. Dale is likewise an old timer ia  the Boundary as he was the original  locator of the Golconda group in  Smith's camp.  WILL MOVE APRIL 1st.  Messrs. Cameron & Huff, tlie  blacksmith's, wish to notify  their customers that after April  1st they -will be located in the  old Russell-Law building, next  to the Kootenay Hotel, Copper  street.

Per .Year ..........:    2 00  Six Months.... .-...  125  To Foreign Countries  ..2 SO  FRIDAY MARCH 17, 1905  Foreign requirements are using  up the bulk of current domestic  -production ^of ^copper���and^this  fact, in connection with a large  home consumption, contributes  the essential requisits for a firm  market. Copper consumers ' are  very busy,: and there is reason to  anticipate ' increased activity  among the users of the metal.  The electrification of railroads,  and-the liberal employment of  copper in the manufactures will  create an urgent demand for  enormous quantities of copper.  "With the important developments  underway, and others to be projected, there are' certain to be  many channels of absorption for  the output of copper. The Chinese empire has come into view as  a conspicuous buyer of copper,  and that country of tremendous  population and great territorial  extent, has recently developed the  ability to take copper from here  in immense quantities. The  heavy buying for oriental account  ranks as one of the prime features  in the present extrememly interesting , situation. Shipments of  copper to the far east will continue to figure in a large way  each month of 1905. This is  known from the business for  Asiatic delivery already secured  and what further contracts may  be obtained from Chinese sources  becomes, therefore, an interesting  subject of conjecture. It is apparent that the absorbing power  outside of the United States gives  GRANBY COMPANY.  General Superintendent Hoctees Describes Proposed Enlargements.  A.'B' W;, Hodges, general superintendent of the Granby company, has  been giving the News-Gazette some  interesting details respecting the proposed enlargement of the smelter at  Grand Forks.    Said he:  "This week the concrete for foundations will be started, the stone work a  little later, and brick work somewhere  around the middle of April. The two  furnaces are now being built in the  east. They will be of a rather larger  type than the present furnaces, with a  capacity of 400 tons each. At present  we usually smelt between 1,700 and  1,800 tons of ore daily, and expect to  reach the 2,500 ton mark when the two  additional furnaces are installed."  Asked as to the location and size of  the big new stack Mr. Hodges stated  that it would be built just above the  carpenter shop above five hundred feet  from the old stack, and with the base  about fourteen feet higher than the old  one. The flue dust chamber will be  nearly five hundred feet long, eleven  feet high and "ten wide, and will take  some 400,000 brick in constructing.  The huge smokestack will be the same  height as the old one, viz., ISO feet,  and will use up another 400,000 brick.  It is the intention when the additional  furnaces are in place to divide the  whole system so as to give four furnaces to each stack.  "What about the length of time on  the construction work, Mr. Hodges?"  "Entirely depends on the way the  brick comes in. We shall have some  thirty or forty men on the work. The  company's fiscal year commences on  July 1st and I shall endeavor to have  the whole work completed by that.time  and the full complement of eight furnaces at work. We shall probably  cease running out Nos. and 2 in gran-  ulatipn^ at the^same time, and use the  slag pot for the whole system."  "It has been stated that the Great  Northern is to take all the blister copper, can you say anything on this  point, Mr. Hodges?"  "The statememt is decidedly wide of  the truth. Our intention is to divide  the freight with some fair degree of  evenness between the C.P.R, and  Great Northern. Each road will bring  down so much ore from Phoenix, it  will also haul the necessary coke to  smelt it and will get the corresponding  share of blister copper. Somewhere  about half of the ore, c6ke and copper  will be handled by each railway."  In this connection it may be mentioned that the Great Northern experienced some difficulty in getting to the  converter building and proposed to  build a spur, looping around the south  end of the works and thus getting  access to the co lverter. An arrangement was completed, however, with  the C.P.R., whereby the latter agrees  to put a switch to the Great Northern  track on the north of the works, and to  haul all copper for the Great Northern  from the converter to the latter company's line.  A dispatch from Toronto concerning  the declaring of a dividend by the St.  Eugene Consolidated Mining Co., Ltd.,  was largely misleading. It stated  that only 3,202,000 shares of the capital  stock had been issued and paid up. As  a matter of fact the number of shares  issued is 3,500,000. There, were some  300,000 shares in the treasury and these  were purchased not long since by the  Gooderham-B'ackstock syndicate at 50  cents a share, and the proceeds were  devoted to development. The dividend  just declared is at the rate of two  cents a share, and is for S70,000 and  not  for S54,040,  as  stated in  the dis  patch. Up to date the dividends aggregate $450,000 instead of $338,000, as  stated in the Toronto dispatch. There  have been two dividends of three cents  a share, or $105,000 each, or $210,000  for the two. There have also been  two dividends of two cents a share  each or $70,000 or $140,000 for the two.  This makes a grand total of $350,000.  The St. Eugene is in splendid' shape,  has large reserves of ore in sight and  the outlook is favorable for a continuance of dividends at regular intervals  for a considerable period.

The past year I .was troubled  a great deal with rheumatism in my  shoulder. After trying several cures  the storekeeper here recommended this  remedy and it completely cured me."

The tendency is for.,  the amount of water to be pumped to  increasingly exceed the amount of. ore  mined? This rule apparently hold a  true to a depth of about 1,500 feet; be-';  low that depth there is not sufficient  data to hand to properly determine the  queston. In some district ihe amount  of water appears to increase, whejea��,  in others it appears to din?,inish..' *$p\  have in mind a mine where, the water  course apparently did npt go doyrn below the 700-foot level. Five hundred,  feet lower the. mine was as, dryL ;aB; a  bone, and. water had to be packedvtrpm  the levels above in order, to,give the  men a supply of water for drilling purposes. Iii LeadviUe the amount- of  water pumped is about thirty tous to  the ton of ore mined. In Cripple  Creek the tonnage was relatively much?  greater, but sin.ce the,El Paso drainage  tunnel was driven the value, pi- ojuf  data is questionable.  S  f^-v*  @-  e  Neves, in.the, history of the .Boundary has the district had a bnghtei? outlook than today.    With the  successful dev  velojpment.pf the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged,and much improved facilities for treating  p at a very small cost,   the  continued opening up, of new high grade properties, an4 their, successful and profitable ^  ^ operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to.the list of new finds and- &L.  - bigger, values,   It.is readily, admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto, >s  - ahd surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few, years.to,be a second Butte,   Ifi you V  "���*<lp therefore^want* to participate in its' future prosperity, now is the time to invest both in mines and real estate.

The Tennessee Copper company's annual, report, just issued, shows/operations of immense, proportions. ' T^ie',  mines and smelters of. this company,  are located in the DuckUwn district ot *  Polk county, Tennesee. The mines  now composing the property *were  opened in 1850? J. Park' Cha'nuing,  the president, in his report last week  says: "Early in the year.it was decid-.  ed to permanently abandon roastine-  ore in open air heaps and to inaugurate pyritic for raw smelting as aoon as  possible. The disorganization due to  the change materially reduced the production for the year and temporarily  increased' the costs. The " present  smelting plant contains three 15-foot:'  blast furnaces. The ne.vf.addition wiil  consist of four 22y�� -foot, furnaces j makr  ing seven furnaces in all,,of:which one  will be a spare furnace, thus insuring,  a capacity of at least 600,000 tons of -  ore per annum." The available ore in  the mines'has been increased to 3,425,-  000 tons showing ore in sight for' the *  enlarged plant for nearly six   years,  with the bottom of all the mines show-1  ' ��� "      >        ��� *  t i ������     ���:/'-*> \ -.  ing good ore under foot of undirnuji-jh-  ed grade.

The report of 'trie t'reasr  urer shows that the productipn for the  year  from   the   company's own   ores,  amounted to 8,617,697 pounds of. fine  copper in the form of. pig and refined-  copper, while the production from cus-'  torn ores amounted  to  186,4-11 pounds  of  fine   copper   in" the   form   of   pig'  copper.

The Sullivan .smelter at Marysville  is in active operation,  The St. Eugene mine has declared a  dividend of $65,000 payable on the 15th  inst? ^^_^_^  Sixty tonn.of ore were shipped from  , the Skylark last week, part going to  th,e,,Nelson and   part   to the Granby  smelter.  Wednesday was payday at the E. P.  U. mine. The disbursements for  wages and supplies for February exceeded $2500.  The.leasees, of the Bell mine, at  Whitewater .are preparing to ship 400  tons of zinc ore which are on the dump.  This,, will be followed by other shipments.  The.output.of the St. Eugene for the  month ^,o*f February was 2SS1 tons.  Water from the flume, is again being  used and is furnishing about' half the  power for the mill.  , 'The.;*two,uew._furnaces f now being  manufactured ^pr- .the .Granby .smelter  , in Chicago, are expected to be shipped  by the.ftrijt.o-f April." The makers are  the Anis-Chaimersj.pompany. ,  ; ���   Finding\that, the ores of the Raw-  \ hide and' Brooklyn,,blend, and flux so  j well, the'Montreal ..& Boston Consoli-  ; ed   hasj,disc,ontinuec"   ore   shipments  'j from the company's Sunset mine in  ' Deadwood camp.     ������������'������'  ! Frid��y^was. the monthly payday at  ������ the Granby and Montreal & Boston  < mines.   The amount of cash distribut-  ��� ed was in the neighborhood of $50,000  - or including that at the two smelters of  ��� these companies about $75,000.  In;a. few.days it is the intention to  'increase the daily-tonnage of ore from  ithe Granby.- mines" over the Great  'Northern to 700 torn*, and in the course  ;of a month to about 1,000 tons, if everything works out as arranged. The C.  P.R.is'now taking out 44 cars, or 1300  tons, daily for the Granby Co.  Both the 30-drill compressors of the  Granby mines are in commission.  Anthony J. McMillan, managing  director of the Le Roi and Snowshoe  mines, returned from England List  week.  A bill has been introduced into the  legislature compelling drummers selling goods to be imported into the  province to pay a license. Liquor and  cigar men are to pay $100 and others  $50 every six months.  It is understood to be the intention  to start active operations on the Stem-  winder mine, Phoenix, whenever the  Granby Co. can spare the compressed  air. The property is owned by the  Montreal & Boston Copper Co.  Part of the zinc machinery for the  Kaslo sampler arrived in Kaslo on  Monday from Denver, Colo., being in  trausit only sixteen days. The machinery will be installed at once and  the plant will probably be iu operation  next month.  A Phoenix syndicate has bonded the  Mavis claim, Skylark camp from Mr.  Wickwire of this city, for $15,000. Its  members include Dalley Morkill, J. A.  Hannah, J. J. Strutzell, C. M. Campbell, Geo, McNicol and W. X. McDonald. Development work will be started  immediately.  Work upon the smelter at Frank is  being pushed and nearly lno men are  now given employment there The  office building is nearly completed and  the foundations for the big engine  and boiler house are up. Work upon  the foundations for the main buildings  will be begun next week.  Last Saturday at tne semi-annual  election of officers for Phoenix Miners-  Union, No. 8, the following was the  result: President, L. F. Holtz, vice-  president, John Mclvor; treasurer,  William Tatham; cotductorj Sam McLeod; financial secretary, Archie F.  Berry; delegate to district convention,  W. Rogers; delegate to W.F. & M. convention, A. E-. Berry.'  . The pumping 'out of , the Winnipeg'  mine still continues, and will probablj-  last for another week or two, when the  workings can be examined and sampled. It is an ticipated that from 25 to 40  men will be employed there, and W. S.  Macy is preparing to op-n a boarding  house to take care of them. The boiler  from the Senator mine has been installed there.  j On the Helen in Anaconda work will  bp resumed in a few days. A sorting  table has been put up for convenience  -in-handling good- sized���lots-of- ore-  Sfcveral sets of square timber and a  few cords of firewood are on the  ground. The shaft is down about 80  feet and considerable drifting has been  done, '.The lead is from 12 to 18 inches  in; thickness and carries good gold  values. '  The>International Coal and CoKe  company' at Coleman, has now 75  miners at work and about 50 men on  repair and construction work and this  force will ���be? largely added to in the  near future. ��� The main entry on this  property, is now in. on. the coal vein a  dejjth of 3000 feet. This with the  working in-the slope which has now a  depth of 460 feet and gives a vertical  depth ou the coal of 325 feet below the  main entry, will give plenty of room  for miner* anof allow.of the management largely increasing the output.  At present the company is working  but,one shift and are getting out for  shipment some 300 tons of coal per  day.*'  Dr. Spankie, of this city, has bonded  the Abercraig and Prince Henry group  of claims situate north pf Twin creek  i f i - ��� ���    ���  and directly opposite the Goldfinch-  mine. Development work was started  this week. There are several leads on  the group, which is regarded as one of  the most promising propositions in the  camp. The values are in gold and silver, -the former predominating. A  series' of .assays' ranged from $25 to  $227 perv ton. -The Abercraig and  Prince Henry are practically full  claims. Experimental shipments to  the B.C. and Trail smelters several  years agd'.:ga.ye Very satifactory returns? The group is owned by G. A.  Rendell, J. N. Patou and G. B. Taylor  of this city. The bond is for a period  Of eighteen months.  The.only really satisfactory method  of determining the weight of ore in  place is to take a slope, carefully measure up an excavation and weigh the  ore that has come out from the cavity  so made. Of course to old rule of using  the specific grayity of the average material, if carefully applied with the  proper factor of safety, will give fair  results, It is often the only one that  can be adopted. The factor of safety  applied, of course, is very largely a  matter of judgment and experience.  It has been found, however, that the  application of the specific gravity rule  usually gives results somewhat in excess j**f__tliose obtain ed__by__the_applica^_  tion of the practical method of breaking down ore, measuring the cavity  made, and weighing the ore obtained  from it..  The term "tunnel" is used in mining  in quite a different sense to that used  by the railway engineer; In railway  engineering a tunnel is a horizontal  opening through rock, or material in  place, both ends of which arc open to  daylight. Ah adit in mining is a term  that should be confined to a drift or  level on a vein which starts at surface  and follows the lode. This is not really  a mining tunnel, although commonly  30 called. A mining tunnel, of course,  is usually open to daylight at one end,  but it differs from an adit by the fact  that it is driven through country rock  and not on the vein. We have seen  some criticisms on the use of this term  "tunnel" in mining operations, but we  think it is a perfectly proper term if  applied only to drifts started at daylight and driven through country rock,  either for the purpose of exploration or  for drainage purposes. Thus, it is  perfectly proper to speak of. the New-  house tunnel, which was driven "to  drain and explore the mines of the  Idaho Springs-Central City district.  - "We expect to have the survey for  the'Kettle Valley line from Republic to  Spokane completed April IS," said H.  W. Warrington, chief engineer, of that  road, in Spokane the other day. "The  road will be 140 miles long and will  cost $3,500,000,' he continued, "That  will make it almost exactly the same  length as the Corbin road to connect  Spokane with the Canadian Pacific,  and the cost will be about the same.  Our company is also locking forward  to an extension from Grand Forks  north   and   west   through    McKinley  camp to Vernon, B.C , and then on to  Spence's bridge on the main line of the  Canadian Pacific railway. In connection with the Canadian Pacific, it will  give a road from the British Columbia  coast to the Kootenay country almost  as short as the route which James J.  Hill proposes to build on from Midway  B.C.?to the tidewater. The Hill route  would make frequent curves back and  forth across the American line. The  first section of 50 miles up the North  Fork of the Kettle river would connect  Grand Forks with the new mining districts of McKinley camp. The next  section of 100 miles would carry the  road to Vernon, at the head of Okanagan lake, on a branch from the main  line of the Canadian Pacific. Another  extension of 150 miles from Vernon  through the Nicola coal fields>would  connect the system with Spence's  bridge, 300 miles from Grand Forks.  The road has secured a Dominion subsidy of $6400 a mile for the branch up  the North Foric.  A Chicago Alderman Owes His Election to Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy.  "I can heartily and conscientiously  recommend Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for affections of the throat and  lungs," says. Hon. John Skenick, 220  So". Peona St., Chicago. "Two years  ago during a political campaign, I  caught cold after being overheated,  which irritated my throat and I was  finally compelled to stop, as I could not  speak aloud. In my extremity a friend  advised me to use Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy, I took two doses that afternoon and could not believe my senses  when I found the next morning the in  flammation had largely subsided. I  took several doses that day, kept right  on talking through the campaign, and  I thank this medicine that I won my  seat in the council." This remedy is  for sale by all druggists.
