We do  not think we are  going beyond facts when  we say that our stock is second  to  none in  this section.  loi^itwomps^  The end of the firsi quarter of 1906  shows, from the general results, that  the mining industry of Uie Boundary  country is certainly in a most flourishing condition, with every likelihood of  its continuation throughout the year  on an increasing scale, exceeding the  output of 1905 by at least twenty per  cen'. in tonnage of ore mined and  shipped and in the values thereof. For  the months of January, February and  March of this year Boundary mines  shipped a total of 322,292 tons of ore.  A valuation of .$5 per ton is considered  conseivative, when ihe high price ol  copper is lemembered, and this gives a  total valuation for the first quarter ot  this year of $1,611,160 for Boundary  mines' production.  In order to show the progress made  in this district in a year's time, one  must iook at the output for the corresponding months of 1905. A year ago  the quarter showed a tolal output of  230,000 tons, with a valuation of a  little over a million dollars. The increase is therefore, about 40 per cent  over one year ago.  So far this year the month of March  shows the gieate.se output ot the three  months, the total output for March being 112,538 tons, against 105,429 tons  for February and 104,378 tons for January. In detail the output for January,  Febiuary and March, 1906, was reported to be as follows, from each  shipping mine in the Boundary district :  Jau. Hel>. Mar.  Granby mines. 74,995  73>8l4 73.

At the same time, it is  practically certain that all three of the  Boundary reduction works will be  tre.iiing considerably more ore in the  last thiee months of this year than in  the fust thiee months.  Low Grade Mines.  Buundaiy's low giade mines are, of  course, the backbone of ihe mining  and smelting n-dustiy here, anil they  will continue 10 become more and  more so, with '.he inciease in output  that seems u.c-vi'.ible. While they  have shipped ureal amounts of ore  thus far this y>:m, ttie managers of the  several pi ope 1 lies have been looking  cl.isely alter iii wioptneiu and are  keeping well in a.iv.mce with that part  01 the woik. 'I"��� 1��.- 10t.1l output now  luns close to 4.coo luiis each 24 hours,  ami befote loi'-K will be even larger,  lioth the (iiaiibt. 15. C.

As an evidence of how the development work is being kept up, it may be  noted that in the last three months the  old Granby mines have had 1,908 feet  01 sinking, lawing, crosscnlting and  diitlinii done, the ("���>  on the $30,000 bond, with more ore  in sight today than at any previous  time. The new shaft and buildings  recently finished placed the company  in.much better condition for economical handling of the ore.  The Preston, Elkhorn, Prince  Henry, Helen, Strathmors and others  in the high grade belt are being operated continuously, also with good re  suits.  Up .the West Fork the strong probability of a railway has had a good  effect, a number of properties being  worked besides the Sally and Rambler,  which are on the shipping list with  high grade ore.  At the District Smelters.  At this time the B. C. Copper  people are taking the lead in enlargement of smelting capacity, work having already started on the excavation  for the three giant furnaces���larger  than any yet erected in Canada���with  which the plant will be fitted by early-  fall. Many other improvements will  be made at this smelter also, including  new ore bins, to say nothing of the  complete electrification of the entire  works of the company, including the  company's mines in Deadwood  camp.  At the Dominion smelter at Boundary Falls the company hat been so  pleased with the results of the operations for the last few months that this  smelter will also be operated entirely  by electricity at the earliest possible  date, the plant for this change having  already been ordered and many of the  motors having been received. A new  machine shop has been built at Boundary Falls, which will have about  $6,000 worth of, up-to-date machinery  when fitted out. This machinery is  now en route. In addition to this,  the two furnaces now being operated  by the Dominion Co. will, it is given  out, be increased by a third and  larger one at an early date.  Granby's smelter has been doing the  best of work, but Mr. Hodges, the  superintendent, proposes to increase  the present capacity of from 2,500 to  2,700 daily to over 3,000 tons per  diem, by increasing the size of some of  the old furnaces. This work is now  under way as occasion permits, without delaying smelting ope-ation seriously. The converter plant is also  being enlarged, and the capacity for  making copper will be considerably increased before the end of the year, the  present output being around 2,000,-  000 pounds monthly.  From the above it will be seen that  Boundary mine managers propose to  make hay while the sun shines, as it  were, and take advantage of the iS and  19 cent copper market, which bids  fair to last some time. There is no  doubt whatever that each of the three  concerns mentioned is now making  good money, the Granby's dividends  being the besl testimony to that end.  Boundary Mining Notes  The diamond drill is now in operation at the Brooklyn mine on single  shift.  At the Gold Drop tbe new tramway  is working and the new ore bunkers  are being filled.  The last shipment of ore from the  Rambler, West Fork, gave returns of  $  1 25 per ton.  DOMINION CO.  IS ACTIVE  Has Resumed Work   on  Idaho Mine.

In Summit camp the Emma nevei  looked better, and the B. C. Copper  Co. is testing the Oro Denoro adjoining quite extensivelv with diamond  drills.  High Grade Mines Prosperin-*.  Among 1 ha many high grade mines  in the Boundary the last three months  have shown good lesults, and it may  be said that these propeities were  uevei in moie satisf ictory shape. The  most impoitaul, the Providence, has  been winking steadily with 35 or 40  men, has shipped some 300 tons of  ore since Januaiy 1st, ami is holding  its own, and Ihe Chicago owneis are  attending stiictly 10 the business ot  mining.  Easily the second hit-h grade Boundary mines is the Skylark, which seems  to improve with each month's work  done.    Some $2 r,000   has   been paid  Manager  Thomas    R.    Drummond  states that the Dominion   Copper  Co.  l)|(Ji' 534 i"1-"1-1 j bas placed an oraer for the thiid blast  furnace for the company's smelter at  Houndaiy Falls. This furnace will be  much larger than the two now in use,  which have a capacity together ol  smelting some 600 or more tons daily,  and when it is installed will give the  company a daily output oi about 1 200  tons of ore, just about doubling the  present output. Tbe order tor the new  furnace was placed with the Trayloi  Engineering Works, ot Allentown,  Venn., Mr. Trayloi, of the firm, having been in the Boundary this week,  settling up the matters connected with  the contiact. It will probably require  four or five months for delivery ot the  machineiy, so that by early fall the  Dominion smelter should be smelting  twice as much ore as is now handled  by those reduction woiks.  By that time also it is expected to  have the matter nl electrical power  settled, so that the entire works may  be operated in Ibis manner, instead ol  with steam as at present.  The success thus  far attending the  A small air compressor is to be installed at the Emma mine, with five  drills capacity.  The Prince Henry Mining Co., of  Greenwood, with a $500,000 capital,  has been gazetted.  The monthly payday, next Tuesday,  should be the best day of its kind in  the history of this camp.  Good ore is reported as being  readied in the south drift from the  -So-foot level of the Bay mine.  Mark F. Madden has taken the E.  P. U. under bond fiom W. T. Hunter,  and will work it through the Gold  Finch claim.  The Dominion Copper Co. is said  to be negotiating with some of the  Copper Mountain mine owners, near  Chesaw, for their Claims.  On tbe return of Manager Rea, of  the Belts and Hesperus, it is expected  that another diamond drilling contiaci  will be let for that property.  J. B. Macaulay has purchased the  Montana fraction, adjoining the Washington and Idaho Jaims, on Wallace  mountain in the West Fork district.  Improvements already started at the  B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter are said to  mean the expenditure of some $300,-  000 in new machinery, equipment, etc.  It is said tbat some 2,000 tons of  low grade ore on the dump of the  Providence mine will be shipped to the  Trail smelter, and that the C. P. R.  will put in a spur for the Providence  shortly.  Foreman Fraser, of the Dominion  Copper Co.'s Rawhide mine, has been  transferred to the Mountain Rose,  Summit camp, where some prospecting  will be done. H. Park is in charge  at the Rawhide.  Work started this week on the O.K.  claim, recently bonded from Sig Dils-  heimer, of Colville, by Greenwood  men for $30,000. It is located near  the Humming Bird on the North Fork  of Kettle river.  The Hamilton Mining Co., with a  capital of a million dollars, has been  formed in Spokane, to develop a high  grade claim of that name, located near  the Trilby above Anaconda. Some  development has been done.  W. S. Macy this week started a  boarding house at the Pathfinder mine,  situated on tbe North Fork of Kettle  river, which was recently bonded to  the Granby Consolidated for $110,000.  About twenty men are now employed  at the property.  Contractor Strachan last week finished the new buildings which he has  been working on at the Skylark mine,  including new shafthouse, blacksmith  shop and ore bins, which are located  at the head of the new main working  shaft recently completed.  East Saturday both the two huge  ore crushers at the Granby mines were  out of commission at the same time,  the No. 1 crusher, however, being  placed in operation that afternoon.  The N'o. 2 ciuihei', at the Great  Northern terminal, has been under repair this week.  A Boston report says that for the  last eight months Granby's earnings  have been $1,250,000, or at the rale  of $156,250 per month. Present earnings being more, however, are expected  to give net earnings of $2,000,000 for  the fiscal year ending June 30th next,  which is at the rate of $14.80 per  share on the new par value of $100  each.  Next Wednesday the annual meet  ing of the Vancouver and Boundary  Creek Mining and Milling Co., Ltd.,  will be held in Greenwood. The  company owns the Sally mine up the  West Fork, one of the best mines in  that section. Out of 205 tons of high  grade ore thus far shipped, the sum of  $16,504 bas been realized, the development going on as fast as returns  were received from the smelters. So  far there have been 1583 feet of  underground development work done  on the Sally. Ralph Smailes and  Robert anil Christopher Wood, ol  Greenwood, are large shareholders.  Raffle  lor Upright Piano.  M.   H.   Roy   states    that    he    will  shortly hold   a   raffle   for   an   upiight  piano,    at    tbe    Butte    Hotel,   where  tickets can be obtained.  An important matter was recently  settled between the C.I'.R. and Great  Northern railway companies, which  means a good deal to this camp in the  way of assisting ore shipments, when  the two companies agreed to conneci  iheir lines at Denoro, a point about  eight miles from here, and where the  lines cross. This was done primarily  at the request of Manager T. R.  Drummond, of the Dominion Copper  Co., who wished to begin ore shipments from the company's Idaho mine,  a property that has never yet sent out  a ton of ore, but which, from the  slight development done, is known to  be capable of a large output. The  Great Northern runs across the Idaho  claim, near the railway station, but  that line does not run to the smelter  at Boundary Falls as yet. On the  other hand, the C. P. R. reaches the  smelter, but not the Idaho mine. The  connection of the two lines at Denoro,  where an interchange of traffic can be  made, will settle the trouble.  An immediate result is that woik  has been resumed on the Idaho tunnel, the face of which is in ore, with  double shifts, while what is known as  the Jersey raise from the long drift at  the 250-foot level of the Brooklyn  mine, which comes up on the Idaho  ground, is now being widened to a  thiee-cotnpartmem shaft, and will have  machinery installed as toon as it is  needed, the company's hoist from the  Sunset mine, in Deadwood camp, being intended for the new shaft in due  course.  The settlement of this matter between the railway companies will result in another important property  being added to the Boundary shipping  list at no distant date, and will eventually mean the employment of an increased number of men. The ground  where the work is going on is almost  within the corporation limits, the long  drift from the Brooklyn mine running  directly under Dominion avenue, one  of the mam thoroughfares.  Same   as  Paid in  January-  $405,000.  Is Due on May 15th and Makes  the Third.  Last Tuesday, April 3d, the directors of the Granby Consolidated met  at the company's office, 52 Broadway,  New Voik, and declared a three per  cent dividend on the outstandingshares  of the company, amounting to 1,350,-  000 shares. This makes the dividend  the same as that paid in January,  namely, $405,000, and it will be payable May 15th. No statement was  given out as to whether this was a semiannual or quarterly dividend, but it  the latter is at the late of 12 per cent  per annum.  Thus far the Granby has paid dividends as follows:  December 16, 1903, $133,630  January 15,1906..........   405,000  May 15, 1906,    405,000  Customs Receipts.  R. R. Gilpin, customs officer at  Grand Forks makes ihe following detailed report of the customs receipts at  the various sub-customs offices, as reported to the chief office for the month  oi March:  Grand Forks $3,234  27  Phoenix   -,'93  66  Greenwood      2,17��  57  Midway    i.��36 05  Osovoos   Sid ley   Carson   Cascade   Keremeos   Total $943,650  From the east also comes the information unofficially, that by the end  of the current year, the output ol the  Granby will have been increased to  2,800,000 pounds of marketable copper  monthly, or an annual increase of  about 9,600,000 pounds of this metal.  This is said to have had a favorable  effect on dividend disbursments.

Nearly a Million in Dividends.
Reports   from   Boston   are   to   the
effect   that   the   Granby  Co. will pay
another   dividend   some    time   next
month.    This dividend, like the   last
one, will, it is said, be  at the rate ol
three  per  cent,   making six  per cent
paid in six months.    Three   per cent
will represent  $405,000   that   will be
handed to shareholders in May.   With
a similar amount paid in January last,
and the $166,330 paid in   December,
1904, this will make a total of $976,-
330 so   far  declared   in dividends by
the   Granby Co.      Nearly   a   million
dollars is a respectable amount for any
British  Columbia or any other mining
company to pay out inside ot   a   year
and a half from low grade copper ore,
and   is  conclusive  evidence that the
tide has effectually turned,   and   that,
from this on there will undoubtedly be
a series of these pleasing  demonstrations, not only by the Granby Co , but
by other Boundarv corpoialions.
According to the figures of those
best informed, it requires but $67,000
per month to pay this last dividend,
while it is no secret that the Gianby
Co. is netting about $200,000 mom lily, leaving a goodly sum foi further
enlargements and renewals when needed. Making copper at eight cents
per pound leaves an excellent margin
when about 18 cents per pound is received for the metal. Ol course, this
could only be done, even at the existing high price of copper, by a tremendous output, such as is going out
from this camp daily, .-ibnu' 2700 tons
when everything is normal.
The judgment ot Managei Graves
and those who stood with him during
the years when success was not absolutely assured, it thus amply vindicated and in a manner that is ceitainly
pleasing to them a3 well as to the rest
of the shareholders and residents of
the Boundary. Granby is today one
of the most talked ol copper stocks in
the world's copper markets, and it bids
fair to hold its own for several generations.

A report from Nelson states that application   has  been  made before Land
Commissioner R. Renwick for the cancellation  of  the   townsite of Sayward,
situated   on the Columbia   river   and
Spok-ine Falls & Northern railway, six
miles below  Trail,  K.   S.   Lennie,  of
Nelson, appearing for Messrs. JBodwell'
and I.awson, of Victoria, representing
the Say wood   Townsite company,   ihe
chief shareholder in which is E. Crow-
Baker, of  Victoiia.     Under the   land
act a townsite cannot  be sold for less
than $25 per lot.    Some years ago the
Sayward Townsite   Company,   located
by Joshua Davies and passing from his
possession to that   of  E. Crow Baker,
sold a large portion of the townsite to
Hunter Brothers, general merchants of
Rossland,   who   spent   $7000   on   the
purchase   and    then   a few   thousand
more on the improvements.    In addition to this one lot was sold to another
Sayward never came to anything, yet
taxes haa to be paid each year until
the government was satisfied that every
man who had bought a lot was willing
to see the townsite cancelled. Ahum
has been toeing on for three years for
the purchaser of the one lot, and he
was located last month in California,
and was willing to sell his lot back to
the company at a price six times that
which he paid for it in the fiist instance. The bargain was closed and
the townsite will now be cancelled after
formal application to the attorney general of the province, the only man
making any money out of the transaction being the one time sucker from
the states.
Seven properties will be working
this year around Camborne.
Rossland ore shipments for last week

200,000 tons more than last year.
Last week the Kootenay and Boundary mines shipped 33,173 tons of ore,
making 427,072 ions this year to date.
There will be moie work done on
claims around Golden this year than
has been done for a good  many years.

From .a 22 inch hole in an immense
ledge of quartz on the Never Slip property, four miles east ol Grand Forks,
exceedingly rich tree gold bearing
ore was blasted out last week. The
samples are the richest ever produced
from any local property before. As a
result of the new find the country
around the Never Slip has been stakr-d
for miles.
George Crearer, of Boundary Falls,
Julius Ehrlich, of Greenwood, and S.
C. Holman, superintendent of the
Mother Lode mine, have bonded the
well known O.K. mine. It is reported
the price is $30,000, extending in payments over some 18 months. The O.
K. lies about nine miles Irom Grand
Forks up the North Foik, and joins the
Humming Bird. The O. K. is a gold

Canada's Mineral Output
A summaty ol the mineral   production of Canada for  1905   has   been issued by the geological   stnvt-y   branch
of the Interior department.    The value
of the mineral pioducts for the vear is
$68,574,707,    or   $2,000,000    higher
than Canada's best year,   lyot,   when
it was  over   $66,000,000.     Last   year
the mineral production  was   $60,073,-
897, or eight and   a half  millione less
than for the past   year.      Last   ye.v's
returns are all the more remarkable in
view of the falling off in the output of
gold from the Yukon.    There is a   'e-
crease in that output of  over $2,000,-
000.    The non-metallic   is   placed   at
$31,123,877 and the metallic  at $37,-
150,830, to which $300,000   products
not returned are added,   making $68,-
574.7°7  •'■   ■••■•      Coal   occupies   the
large   predominant    position,   making
over $17,000,000, and1 when added to
the  value   of   the   metallic   products,
about 80 per cent, of  the   production
of the country is accounted for      The
output of the Yukon gold was $8,327,-
200 and other gold   $6,159,633, making $14,486,833   in   all.      Copper   is

Tbe Or an by Dividend.
The LeRoi and the Reco recently
paid dividends, and now the Granby,
the big mining company of the Boundary, is about to distribute $400,000
among its stockholders. It will be a 3
per cent, dividend, and will be but the
avant courier of many dividends that
aie to come.
When Jay P. Graves insisted year
after year on adding to the plant and
equipment of the Granby company till
it had a capacity of 2,700 tons a day,
there were a considerable number of
the stockholders who insisted that he
should keep the size of the plant down
to moderate proportions, and instead
of putting the money into betterments
in the mine and smelter, increasing
the producing capacity of both, he
should pay dividends. These differences with his fellow directors were
acute at times, but Mr. Graves steadily
insisted on his policy, and it prevailed.
Had he listened to the protests of the
timid ones, the Granby would be a
comparatively small proposition so far
as dividends are concerned.
Now, however, the earning capacity
of the plant has reached $200,000 a
month, and it is able to not only pay
dividends, but to leave a surplus for
still further enlargements which are
contemplated by the management in
the direction of an increased smelting
plant. There is no lack or ore, but
there is of smelling capacity. The
ledges of the Granby are so large that
it will take many decades at even much
larger extraction than at present to
exhaust the ore. It will not be long
before the size of the plant will be increased to 5,000 tons a day capacity,
and perhaps even more than that. The
Granby promises to develop into one
of the largest mining companies on the
continent.—Rossland Miner.

The flour that is doing the most for  the reputation of hard wheat flour is the  brand known as  Ogilvie's Royal Household  It is hard wheat flour at its best���milled  by modern methods, retaining all of the  good of the wheat and none of the bad���  it is without an equal for every kind of  baking in  which flour is used.

We do not know what the trouble is,  but we do know that if the city of Fernie pays twice what is asked locally for  every job of printing needed, the local  papers would not begin to receive what  is their due, in a public spirited way,  for the good they do the town on the  outside. It is doubtful if any pub  lisher in that section can be persuaded  to tender for the work, but, of course,  the short sighted solons of Fernie can  get the printing from Timothy Eaton  or some similar concern. They will  make a grave mistake, however, if the  order leaves Fernie.  Once again we notice exchanges  coming in wrapped in the leaves of department store catalogues, this being  the season for those voluminous pio-  ductions. There is but one thing  they are bettei fitted for. Being warm  things, they will make excellent fires.  ���M  Over in the town of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, there is a paper called the  I'hoenix, and incidentally the Pioneer  has received mail intended for the  Phoenix. The editor of the Phoenix  recently got off the following homely  bit of philosophy : "A newspaper is  an institution. Some personality major may not be in evidence. But the  life of any community is bound up in  its newspapers. Their interests are  identical."  J. Peck McSweyn, the only and original, was reported to have left Golden,  which has been his abiding place for  some months, and immediately the  Golden Star diJ not shine so brightly,  some weeks failing to twinkle at all.

When the Granby Co. pays a dividend it is one worth while���large  enough to be seen and noted by the  world ;tt large. A matter of $405,000  in one dividend looks pretty good to  shareholders and fully as well in the  investment world generally. Dividend  No. 3 is now said  to be in sight, and  many more to follow, doubtless.  *������  In the current issue of the British  Columbia Mining Record, E. Jacobs,  the editor, handles I). R. Young, of  Vernon, without gloves. Mr. Young  is now promoting the British Empire  mines, near Vernon, and preparing to  sell shares. The Reco.d calls attention to several of Mr. Young's mining  schemes in the Boundary and Siiiiil-  kameen in the past, none of which  have so far amounted to anything.  Mr. Young is well known all over  Kootenay and Yale, where he operated for eight or ten years, with a brand  new scheme every few months.  Over in Hedley they have a ton-  sorial aitist who rejoices in the appropriate name of Hairsine.     Next.  According to repart, Joseph S. Carter, of Nelson, who has held the post  of travelling passenger agent of the C.  P. R. for several y-ars, is to be promoted, with Spokane as his headquarters. Joe's many friends in southern  British Columbia���and they are legion  ���will regiet the change, but realize  that Kootenay's loss is Spokane's gain.  Canada's greatest railway never had a  more genial official in this territory.  Dame Rumor h.is it that Pat O'Far-  rell, the right hand press man of F.  August Heinze, has recently made a  trifle of $200,000 speculating in Amalgamated shares. Pat is certainly a  picturesque writer, and has likely  made a dollar or two on the side, il  not in driving his quill. He has progressed not a little since he and the  writer of these lines u^ed to grind out  heavy copy on the Spokane Evening  Chronicle, some sixteen years ago.  An order has recently been put into  effect by the postal authorities at Ottawa that will relieve the mails of some  of the cheap American magazines. For  instance, Frank Munsey, of New York,  notifies his newsdealer customers that  hereafter, they must pay eight cents a  pound postage on the Argosy and All  Story magazines mailed to Canada,  instead of one cent per pound as formerly. This means that newsdealers  must sell these ten cent magazines at  20 cents, and that means they will not  sell at all, practically. Jt may be a  good thing to shut out some of the  penny dreadfuls, so called, but what a  mess they do make of it at Ottawa, in  the postoffice business,  anyway.

Pen Not tbe Only Weapon  Western editors are sometimes held  personally responsible for their comments upon the doings of the towns in  which they live, ancl they sometimes  show that the pen is not the only  weapon they can wield. The Dillon  (Wyo.) Doublejack is a case in point,  as shown by the following dispatch to  the Denver News :  "Two Copperton characters, known  as Hard Pan Pete and Bedrock Bill,  are recovering from the effects of an  effort to clean out the office of the  Dillon Doublejack, a weekly newspaper published here. The men took  exception to a story published by the  editor of the Doublelack, entered the  office and announced that it was their  intention to wipe the floor with him.  The editor, not at all dismayed, seized  a doublejack, which is kept in the  office as the insignia of the paper, and  attacked Hardpan and Bedrock so  effectively that both were laid out in  short order and neither was able to  leave the office without assistance.  The editor escaped without a scratch."  HOW TWO BEAOTIFU  PELVIC CATARRH  :M ESCAPED  SY AID OF PERUNA.  Female Weakness Is Usually Pelvic Catarrh.

We began using Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy, aiding the same with a double  dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and  Liver Tablets, and by its liberal use  soon completely knocked out the grip."

Mrs.   MaWe   Bradford,   13   Church   street,  Burlington, Vt., Secretary Whittler Oratorio  il Society, writes:  "Feruna is certainly a wonderful medicine  for the ills of women.    I have   heard it  spoken of in the highest praise by many,,  and certainly my experienco is well worthy  of a good word.  "I began to have severe pains across my '���  back about a year ago, brought on by a  cold, and each subsequent month brought'  me pain and distress.

Thousands of Women Cured Every Year  by Correspondence���This Is What  Dr. Hartman Proposes to Do  For You Without Charge.  Women who suffer should read the  evidences presented here. We have  thousands of letters from grateful  friends who tell the same story.  Half the ills that are peculiarly  woman's own are of a catarrhal  character. Female weakness was not  understood for many years.  Dr. Hartman deserves tbe credit of  having determined its real character.  He  haa  made  catarrh  and   caUxrhal  diseases, Including pelvic catarrh a life long study.  Peruna cures catarrh, whether  of the  pelvic organs or any other organ of the  human body.  Pe-ru-na, a Natural Beautlfler.  Peruna produces clean, mucous membranes, the basis of facial symmetry  and a perfect complexion.  The women have not been slow to discover that a course of Peruna will do  more toward restoring youthful beauty  than all the devices known to science.  Many a girl has regained her faded  beauty, many a matron lias lengthened  the days of her comely appearance by  using Peruna.  In Peruna these women find a prompt  and permanent cure.  Thousands of testimonials to this effect are received by Dr. Hartman every  year. The good that Peruna has accomplished in this class of cases can  scarcely be over-estimated.  I If you. do not derive prompt and  j satisfactory results from the use of  I Peruna, write at once to Dr. Hart-  - man, giving a full statement of your  case, and he will be pleased to give,  you his valuable advice gratis.
