Last Saturday the members of the  old Athlestan syndicate received a  payment of $20,000, through the Bank  of British North America at Greenwood, from the Montreal & Boston  Consolidated, it being the last of the  payments on the bond given on the  property. Those interested directly  were C. S. Slawson, of Spokane; James  Hunter, of Rossland; W. T. Hunter,  of Greenwood and Charles D. Hunter  and George H. Collins of Phoenix.  There gentlemen owned a  majority  ofthe stock of the Athlestan Gold  M ining Co. and  also owned  outright  the Jackpot fraction claim adjoining  in Wellington,canip, and last summer  gave a bond to thj Montreal & Boston  on their holding for a sum said to approximate $60,000 and some shares in  the new company then being formed.  The payment of $20,000 just made was  not due till.July 1st, and the fact that  it has been anticipated in full  bears  out the statement emanating from the  east, that the Montreal & Boston Consolidated is raising a fund to  take up  the balance of payments due on the  van'ous properties    bonded    by  that  company last year, and  to provide a  development fund.  Thus far the Montreal &  Boston  people have spent in the neighborhood  Of  Scnnnnr.   ;��    ��.������_���        1    *  veloping their several mines in the  IJjundary, together with new equipment that has been added. It ij also  pretty well known that the smelter is  doing such good work with the company's own ores that the reduction  works are to be enlarged this season  and converters added.  AMwdfiBtsck is talked "of for  B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter.  Work' has been resumed on the Bonnie Belle in South Deadwood camp.  Last" Monday the new diamond  drill was set at work at the Mother  Lode mine. ,-  Electricity for lighting purposes is  now being used at the E. P. U. mine,  near Greenwood.  A depth of 125 feet has been obtained in the sinking of the new incline  shad on the Emma, in Summit camp.  ^'TheC.'sP. R. is now taking out  about j8 cars all told and the Great  Northern' 15 cars daily from this camp.  Granby shares are quoted strong at  $6 on the Boston Stock Exchange,  with considerable demand.

'  ORGANIZED PHOENIX  ATHLETIC CLUB  Elected Officers and Secured its  Quarters.  At the announced meeting of the  fire boys last Monday evening, the  Phoenix Athletic Association was organized. It was the intention of the  boys to organize a fire racing team,  but there being no officers of the department present, it was decided to  form an athletic association. The as  sociation was started with the following  officers:  President, J. O. Church.  First Vice-President, H. A. Munro.  Second Vice-President, W.C Hower.  Secretary-treasurer, O. N. Galer.  Executive committee, W. X. McDonald, V; Sherbino, Palmer Cook,  and Messrs. Erwin and McBeth.  "Tne association has rented a large  store in the Morrison-Anderson building, on Old Ironsides avenue, which  has been fitted up with gymnasium  apparatus. It is the intention to have  a cinder path on Old Ironsides avenue,  and train a hose racing team under  the management of the association.  The association already has about  thirty members, with others joining  daily. It is the hope of the boys to  make it a permanent organization, and  its intention is to foster and support all  athletic games.  ��� Five of the six, furnaces at the Granby smelter are now arranged for the  electric charge, and the sixth will be  ready in a few days'.  ,     . *V�� 1* *.  No ore was sent out for "several days  this weekjTrom the, Rawhide, owing to  repairs being made to the furnaces at  the Montreal & BJoston smelter.    '  The McKirifey^-Mines, Ltd., has  been incorporated with a capital of  $2,000,000 to operate properties up  the North Fpr2 o^Kettle river near  Franklin camp.'  > -        t  Leopold Hermann, of New York, is  the new secretary of-the Montreal &K~ "r     " j     -,  Boston ;Consolidated,(being connected t0nna8e and  ra,lway  with the wealthy Untermeyer firm, that  has taken an interest in the company.  The three switches have been put in  at the Snowshoe mine, and some ore  is expected to be sent to the North-  port smelter for trial with the LeRoi  product, pending the proposed amalgamation.  Last Sunday's Great Northern train  to Phoenix brought in Frederick Keffer, manager of the B. C. Copper Co.,  together with the president of that  company, F. L. Underwood, and the  consulting engineer, W. H. Thomas,  both of New York. They were accompanied by \V. N. Merrill, and J.  Killer Scbon, ot Duluth.  Tuesday the party left by special  teams for a trip through the Similkameen country, to see for themselves  �� hat the probable tonnage is that can  be obtained from that section for smelting purposes.  Mr. Underwood is well known in  the Boundary, having been identified  with its mining interests for many  years. It is known that his company  has secured an option on a smelter  site at Midway, and Mr. Underwood  is reported to have stated that, if-the  communication  are assured, he stands prepared" to  finance a smelter project up to  $600,000.  Many Persons Have Left For  That Section.  Since it became  definitely   known  that the Great Northern was on the  verge of letting contracts for the con-  strui-tion of its line from Oroville into  the Similkameen country as far as Hedley, quite a number of people have  been  suddenly   taken   with   what i\>  known as the Similkameen fever.    Beginning late last week, parties of fortune hunters in   business   lines   have  been   leaving  for   the Similkameen,  hoping to see desirable openings in a  legitimate   business  or   mining way.  From all appearances, there will be  no lack of those willing to cater to the  wants of the public in every conceivable manner, from wet and dry goods  to the wildest kind of  wildcats and  even to producing mines.  No doubt exists in the public mind  that this summer will witness activity  in the Similkameen country, especially  the lower part of it, where the railway  is to be constructed. This will not  only bring in thousands - of railway  but hosts of others wishing to  TIP TOP CLAIM  WAS BONDED  William S. Macy Gets it For  $15,000.

Doubtless many of them will return in due season.  EXTENSION OF  GT. NORTHERN  M. H. Roy, Louis Roy and George  Fowler, who have a twelve months'  bond it $6,000 on the June Bug, near  work, and report finding good ore in  the face of the tunnel.  A boiler has been installed at the  Seattle mine, on the North Fork of  Kettle river, where the tunnel is now  being driven with - a steam drill, the  property being under bond to W. T.  Hunter and associates.  Six feet of ore have been uncovered  on the Hidden Treasure, one of the  Republic group, largely owned by W.  T. Smith and associates. The group  is located not far from the Boundary  Falls smelter and is most promising.  Secretary Fuller of the Providence  Mining Co., was in the city Tuesday.  He could not say when work on the  Providence would be resumed, but  says the ore. has been found in the  Bay, in which-heis:half owner, better  than ever.  Work has been started by Harry H.  Shallenberger on the Crescent and  Don Pedro in Skyiark camp with a  a force of ten - men. This is one of  the likely groups in the high grade  belt, and will probably have an air  compressor in the near future.  J. T. Ferguson left for Vancouver  Monday, where he was summoned to  ,look at a property immediately adjoining the now well known Britannia, on  Howe Sound. The Britannia has contracted to ship its entire output to the  Crofton smelter.  A distance of over 250 feet has  been made in the long tunnel on the  Strathmore, it being estimated that the  rich ore body on this claim will be  reached shortly, giving a depth of  about 175 feej..; When this is done,  the Strathmore will be added to the  list of shippers..  This week work was discontinued at  the Winnipeg mine, the pumps drawn,  and the agreement for a.bond for $15,-  00c thrown up by the' Granby Co.  After spending considerable money  and a couple of months' time, besides  shipping several cars of ore, Supt.  Hodges decided that he would do  nothing further, owing to lack of  values, etc.  -r  WHAT DO YOU  Here are a few facts: ��� . -  Last Saturday the Pioneer was mailed promptly as usual. It did  not reach its large list of Greenwood subscribers till the Wednesday  following���four days later.  Last Saturday the Greenwood Times was mailed, as usual, but did  not reach Phoenix till Wednesday���also four days later.  Greenwood is five miles distant from Phoemx by wagon road���an  hour's walk or half an hour's drive.    By  rail it is distant t8 miles via  C. P. R. . _,     ���  There are three stages every day in the year operated between  Phoenix and Greenwood.  A package could have been sent to Seattle and returned���round  trip about 1,000 miles���in the time the above mail spent on the way  between Phoenix and Greenwood, distance 18 miles.  The above is referred to the attention of all those interested, including Sir Wm. Mulock, postmaster-general; J. R. Greenfield, inspector at Vancouver, etc.  Tckfraa tnm Uils W. Hill.  Responding to an inquiry from the  Victoria Board of Trade regarding  Great Northern Coast-Kootenay intentions, the following reply was recently  received:  "b. J. Pitts, fresraeiu viciona Bdara  ofTiade:  "Our company is prepared and will  commence to build from upper Similkameen this year, and later on to  Coast, asking no subsidy. Similkameen (>arties can assure you our interest in the matter. Lack of proper cooperation has lost district and ourselves much time.

Oroville-Hedley Section to be  Built at Once.  :  :  t  l~  LOCAL JOTTINGS  Late lust week C. W. Greer started  overland for kamloops, accompanied  by his three sons. Mrs. Greer left  yesterday.  Monday being Easter Monday, and  a holiday, the postoffice will be closed  except during holiday hours. The bank  will also be closed.  Carpenters have been busy this  week partitioning off the old Masonic  hall, in the Morrison-Anderson building, for living purposes.  The first lot of lumber for the new-  block to be erected by L. V. Birnie on  h's Knob Hill avenue property has  been delivered. Alex Strachin will  put up the structure.  The B. C. Telephone Co.'s force,  who have been making repairs to the  city lines this week including the fire  alarm system, completed the work yesterday, and went to Trail.  J. L. Martin visited his ranch near  Curlew last Saturday, and in going  over the No. 7 wagon road and trail  from Greenwood his horse went  through four feet of snow in places.  Tom Pickhardt started Thursday to  attend to some assessments on claims  in the Similkameen, and incidentally  to size up business openings on the  line of the new railway into that country.  Do not overlook the Easter Mon^  day ball, which will be given by the  Ladies' Aid of the Catholic church.  The best of music and a good time  for every man, woman or child that attends.  The Phoenix Brewery, Julius Mueller proprietor, is putting on sale today  a special brew of bock beer, especially  for the Easter and spring trade. All  lovers of the beverage will doubtless  wish to sample it.  H. T. Ceperly, of Vancouver, the  well known fire insurance agent, was  in town Wednesday adjusting the loss  by fire of last week at the dry house  owned by the Granby Co. It amounted  to something less than $1,000.  As signifying the demand for residences in Phoenix, this week, when  one of the Granby cottages happened  to be vacated, there were thirteen applications for the house. It h believed  that twenty new cottages would readily find tenants.  James H. Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V., V. & E., was in the city  Tuesday on his way to Hedley, where  he has a large corps of surveyors  working. When asked as to the new  railway construction from Midway to  Oroville, Mr. Kennedy did not say  much, except that the contract had  not yet been.let definitely, nor did; he  know whether the Republic or Midway  route would be chosen. It is understood, however, that J. W, Stewart,  who built the extension to Phoenix,  will secure the work.  L. E. Shields, of the head contract  ing firm of Seims &. Shields, wilh a  party of sub-contractors, is now going  over the route from Oroville to Hedley by wagons, about 65 miles, and is  expected to arrive in Phoenix on the  return trip and day, after which some  announcement regarding sub-contracts  will doubtless be forthcoming. The  party of contractors includes. Patrick  Welch, John Porter, D. D. Twohy,  William Winter, T. F. Wren, James  Caughran, E. N. Jones and Grant  Smith.  It is freely circulated that the reason  the Midway-Oroville contract has not  yet been let is that one or two  persons are holding out for exorbitant  prices for right of way hear Midway.  Mr. Kennedy would neither confirm or  deny this, but says he can get a good  route from Republic, in which case  Midway would be sidetracked. Surveyors are now working on the route  from Republic west.  It is growing to be quite the thing  now for the Pioneer to have the-pleas-  uie of reporting each week or two the  sale outright or bonding of one or  more mines in the Boundary, this be-'  mg an evidence that the interest in  Boundary mines is steadily growing  with time.  On Thursday of this week the Tip  Top, a full sized claim in the high  grade Skylark camp, was bonded by  W. S. Macy, of Phoenix, on behalf of  himself and associates, the amount of  the bond being $15,000. The owners  are Randolph Stuart and J. C. Haas,  and a cash payment was made, the  deal being negotiated by Gaunce &  Wickwire, of Greenwood.  The Tip Top is located adjoining  the Mavis, now being actively operated by a Phoenix syndicate, the Mavis  itself adjoining the Bay, a ��� free gold  proposition of merit, also being developed with good results and owned  by Messrs. Fuller and Hall, of Greenwood. It is believed that the Tip  Top has the Bay lead, and operations  are intended to be started shortly to  demonstrate this.  Sett Far His Office FUlla-ft.

When ex-Alderman McDonald received the bulky missive giving him  this important news, he at once wrote  for instructions in the matter, wishing  to know the salary attached and when  the office furniture arid supplies would  be forwarded to him.

As far as railway legislation goes', j  nothing was accomplished for the J  simple reason thai the government  supporters themselves could not agree  to just what lines the limited assistance  available should be given. Had they  come together in the matter, something  would have been done in the way of  railway legislation. Of course they  would not give the C.P.R. the $5,000  per mile asked for with five years to  build a Coast-Kootenay line, as there  was and is no possible reason for so  assisting that rich and dividend^ paying corporation.  While it is easy to criticise, it is another thing to suggest a remedy that  is effective. Any man can act the  pari of an iconoclast, but it takes a  man of brains to suggest and put into  effect something better.  MORE RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION.  ^     r-  1905- APRIL;.  i9��5  "So.- Mm.-Tmi.

There may or may  ' not be some truth in the statement,  but the man who is fair and not hide-  f       T  r  bound will think twice before coming  ., to the conclusion that nothing worth  ,    whilewas accomplished.   Let us look  at the conditions.  ,       As is but too well known, the gov-  ' eminent for the last two years has had  ,,an   exceedingly small majority  with  which to transact business and pass  ���,   acts.   This majority happened to  be  with the Conservatives, and it' is still  '���   .        1- * ,1  with them.   It does not take a man  of great wisdom to see that, with a  majority that is precarious or close,  any government is not in a position to  enjoy much leeway in its deliberations,  , 'but must, on the contrary, listen to  what any of 'its supporters, real or  ' fancied, may have to say, and endeavor  to pass such, legislation as seems to  the majority for the best. Otherwise  defeat stares them in the face, followed  by an appealto the people.  This was the position of the  McBride government, and by the Liberal  press'its members have been severely  criticised for not accomplishing more  than they did. _ But there is not the  least reason to think  that an appeal  to the electorate, if it should by any  chance place the Grits in power, would  '     give any more of a working majority;  in which case they would hardly expect to accomplish one whit more than  the McBride government has accomplished.  This being the case, and it is generally admitted to be such by thoughtful and fair minded persons, indiscriminate denunciation of the present  government is out of place���very much  out of place, it may be said. If there  was any surety that either the Social  ists or the Liberals could secure a  decisive majority by a new election,  then the criticism might be fitting.  As a matter of fart, considerable has  been accomplished.'  If the Liberals  bad been in power in  this province,  there can  be no doubt but that it  , would have been more or less wilhng-  , ly /'held  up" by the Grand Trunk  "Pacific.    The   Conservative   government ptood staunchly against any such  ilofcl-up, " Give Mr. McBride and his  'ministers credit for that, among other  .things.

I  James J. Hill, president of the  Great Northern railway, is evidently  pretty well satisfied with his investment in the new line to Phoenix. It  is probable that the line has taken out  more ore in the two months that it has  been doing this business from Phoenix than it has in the two years thatfit  has been completed to Republic.

And yet, without land grant or  bonus of any kind, the work continues.  Now,-the contractors are preparing to  start work on>a 65 'mile section from  Oroville,   Wash.,   to   Hedley   in the  '-   WByD#rV#flK��S��lf��r.  Such pain and endure the torture of  nervous headache when 25c. buys a  sure cure like Nerviline. A few drops  in sweetened water brings unfailing  relief. You feel better at once, you're  braced up, invigorated, headache goes  away after one dose. ' The occasional  use of Nerviline prevents indigestion  and stomach- disorders���keeps up  health and strength. Every woman  needs Nervilihe'and should use it, too.  In 25c. bottles everywhere.  the line will soon be under way* The  section between Midway or Republic  and Oroville is still in the air, the  choice between'the two routes not having been decided. The Midway route  was preferred, but is not absolutely  essential, and engineers are now going  over the route froin ' Republic once  more. Mr. Hill had one experince in  paying extortionate prices for right of  way near Grand Forks, and it is hardly likely that lie will submit to ' that  sort of thing again. But in any event  the line will be built, and will be a  short line to the coast.  Not for a' moment, however, does  any One conversant with,the situation  suppose that Mr. Hill will have the  rich Similkameen to himself. The C.  P.R, has had its eye on that splendid  section too long to give it up to a rival  railway without a struggle of no mean  proportions. Consequently, it is more  than likely that construction on the  C. P. R. will commence at any time  from Spence's Bridge into the Similkameen from the west, and then the race  of the giants will be on in earnest.  Of course, il will go hard with the  C.P.R. to make a start in building a  railway without a provincial subsidy for  the same. They have become so used  to that sort of thing that it is expected  as a matter of course. This time,  however, they will have to worry along  without-it- or 4et Mr>Hill's�� tire the  rich tonnage already waiting in the  hills and valleys ofthe fair Similkameen  country. The leopard may *neyer  change his beautiful spots, but railways sometimes change their policy.  Mr. Hill has thrown down the guage,  and it remains to be seen whether Mr.  Shaughnessy will not pick it up^ and  do it pretty quickly^ too. >  The Marble < Bay mine, on Van  Anda island, will soon pay a dividend,  the first one on the coast to do this.  It has been announced by Manager  Aldridge that the capacity of the Trail  lead refinery will be increased two or  three times its present output.  The recent rich strike made in the  St. Eugene mine, will cause a number  of good prospects it the vicinity to be  worked during the coming season.  'Minnesota' capitalists propose to  drive a 4,000 foot tunnel in nhe 'Lar-  deau, at a cost of $75,000, to tap the  deep ledges of the Silver Cup, Nettie  L. and Triune silver mines.  The North Star, the oldest producing mine in the East Kootenay, according to' reports,, is to be leased.  The proposition of leasing is now before the directory board of the company.

It is true that many' contract colds  and recover from them without taking  any precaution or treatment, and a  knowledge of this fact leads others to  take their chances' instead of giving  their colds the needed attention. It  should be borne in mind that every  cold weakens the lungs, lowers the vitality, makes the system less able to  withstand each succeeding cold and  paves the way for more serious disease.

The  arrival in the Boundary this week of  several officials ofthe British Columbia  Copper Co. recalls the visit of Prof.  Itert Reese, of Chicago, just a month  a<.o, who was sent here to "expert" the  Mother Ix)de mine, owned by the company. Prof. Reese, being a clairvoyant, was the centre of an interested  group during the brief lime that he  was .slopping at tht Imperial hotel in  Greenwood. The result generally was  that a number of skept'cs regarding  clairvoyancy and mind reading who  Dii-ht have hailed from Missouri, were  sojii satisfied that he knew his business. 1 Ieie are some reported samples.  Rowland Machm, the Bennett fuse  man of Victoria,   happened   to  be  in  Greenwood at the same time as Prof.  Re-se, and like others, he did not object to leing "shown." So it was done,  'to his great satisfaction.    The professor then and  there offered  to wager  Mr. Machin* $��o that  he could tell  exactly how much  money he had in  his pocket, and Mr. Machin promptly  look him up.    'I'he professor said  he  hid just $6.35,  an(-* an examination  proved him to be correct.    Then the  professor asked  Manager  Pemberton,  of the Montreal & Boston  Consolidat  ed, to write something on four separate  slips of paper and  roll  them  up and  place them in his pocket,    When told  to take one out and look  at  it,   Prof.  Reese told  him   he  had   written  his  mother's name���and so it proved.  ���*���  A number of tests  by  W. T. Hunter, and  others   followed,  and  those  present who, mayhap, had looked as  -kance on the professor as a  finder  of  ore bodies in Boundary mines,  began  to think that perhaps after all the man  from Chicago,could be of service in  the direction indicated, even though it  is an axiom as old as the hills that one  man can see as far into the ground as  another and no farther, and  that the  metal is- where you find it.  And so it comes to pass that the  number of those in the Boundary who  believe in ghost shops may be somewhat increased. As a climax, however, it may be stated that Prof. Ree e  is credited with making the statement  that the peace between Russia and  japan will be declared on June 24th  next.  THE MEDIGATSENSATION OF THE AGE-THE DISCOVERY OF PE-RU-NA  BY DR. S. B. HiRTMAN.  Other Remedies Failed���Pe-ru-na Cured.  Mrs. ChaB. Steinecke, StougMon, Wis., writes:  "My oxporienco with Peruna has been roost pleasing. By carelessly leaving a heated ball room I got thoroughly chilled and caught a heavy cold  which settled on my lungs. I wore a protector, took many remedies for  cold without sui-cess.   With my other troubles I had catarrh of the head.   .'.  "Peruna was recommended to me and I bought a bottle aod soon begaa  to Improve. I kept on taking It and It cured me from all my troubles.  1 am pleased to testify to Its merits."  It is a notable commentary on the  lead producing industry of tnis province that, while Kootenay smelters can  hardly secure enough ore to keep the  lead stacks in blast, one mine, the St.  Eugene, finds that it can ship its product to European smelters and save  money over having the ore treated at  any of the domestic smelting works.  Mine owners assert that the local reduction works are charging too high a  figure for smelting, and give lengthy  explanations of the whys and wherefores thereof.; To which the management oftjie smelters reply to equal or  greater length. The fact remains,  however, as Labove'stated, and to one  not specially interested or biassed, it  appears as though lead smelters would  have to mnke better rates if they want  more business.  A London court has decided that  $ 1.80 is; enough for a woman's Easter  bonnet, but that judge would find his  work cut out for him to prove that  such an insignificant sum for woman's  headgear at any season would satisfy  the average female.:  ���_  ".  A young man , who had not been  married long remarked at the dinner  table the other day, "My dear, I wish  you could make bread such as mother  used to make." The bride smiled and  answered in a voice that did not tremble: "Well, dear, I wish you could  make the dough that father used to  make." The bread and dough question  hasn't coine up for family discussion  since. .  .'.������' ��������  "We were in the society of many  curates and old maids at an English  tea party," says a writer. "The conversation had turned on the question,  'Does the wearing of hals make men  bald?' One grave and unworldly old  curate opened and closed the discussion by saying: 'Not hats, dear  friends, but shirts. Now, you have  noticed that a man takes off his shirt  over his head, thereby dragging the  hair out by the roots, whereas a wo-  man'���here three teacups dropped."  The World's Greatest Medicine  Factory.  Tho rapid growth of the Peruna Medicine Company is as phenomenal in tho  business world as the universal popularity of their famous remedy, Peruna.  Tbe plant covers a number of acres,  and employes several hundred people.  No other medicine firm in the, world  reaches anything like the volume of  business done by Dr. Hartman's firm.  Although Peruna is a proprietary  medicine, tho dctnilsot its compounding  (ire no secret and nothing gives Dr.  Hartman greater pleasure than to show  the many friends of Peruna all tho os-  ��� ���-.*�� **'�����������������������������#���>���������<���>�� *�� .���  sential' processes. by which Peruna Is  made. ������  A Doctor's Prescription.  Tot yearB Dr. Hartman used Peruna  in his private practice as a regular  prescription. He had no thought of  manufacturing it or advertising it as a  proprietary medicine until there was a  demand made upon him by his many  friends, -who clamored for the original  prescription.  Forty Thousand Patients.  Dr. Hartman estimates that he must  have prescribed Peruna for over forty  thousand patients .before it was advertised as a proprietary medicine.  Miss Josle Schaetzel, R. R  Apple ton, Wis., writes:  "I contracted a severe cold which  settled on my lungs in very short  order and it was not long until it developed Into a serious case of catarrh.  Every morning I would raise a lot of  phlegm, which was very disagreeable.  My digestion was poor and my lungs  sore.   ,  "Altera tew doses of Periina, I began to mead, and felt that If I kept oa  taking It, It would oot be long until I  would be well."' I was right, tor la tour  weeks I was'well again.  "I think Peruna la a.grand medicine,  and wish to add my testimony to the  many others you have."-JosleSchaetzol.  Pe-ru-na Removes the Cause of  -    Catarrh.  Peruna hai.no bad effects upon the  system and gradually eliminates catarrh by removing the cause of catarrh.  There aire a multitude of homes where  Peruna has been used off and on for  twenty years.  , ;.r  Entirely   Cured   By   Several  Bottles of Pe-ru-na.,  Miss Ella M. Miller, ono of Washington's society girls, writes from 110  P 6treet, N. E., Washington, D. 0., as  follows:  , , "Withpleasure I recommend your  medicine for catarrh ot the head.  Having taken several bottles, I find  myself entirely cured. I cannot praise  Peruna too highly."-Ella M. Miller.  Given Up By Doctors���Cured By Pe-ru-na.  Miss Margret Fahey, 49 Adams street, Troy, N. Y., writes:  "We have used Peruna In our family for years and I am very pleased  to say that It cured me of catarrh ot the lungs when the doctors gave up  all hope of my recovery.  ' "I used Pernna for six months and at the end of that time my cough had  disappeared, my appetite was much better and I had gained ten pounds and  looked the picture of health.  "I am In perfect health, now, and feel that Peruna not only cures catarrh,  but builds up the .system, and is therefore a grand medicine."���Margret  Fahey.  '  Pe-ru-na's Popularity.  Peruna is not like so many other  remedies that pass away as soon as the  first few bottles are used. The longer  Peruna is used in any community, the  more popular It becomes,  '  Pe-ru-na Actually Cures.  The reason why Peruna has'become a  standard catarrh remedy the world over  is simply because it cures catarrh.     "  I This explains why Poruna has become so popular. It cures catarrh.  This is an amply sufficient reason why  it should become popular.  Catarrh 1b almost universal. Catarrh  is difficult to cure. The doctors' do not  care to treat cases of catarrh at all.  It therefore follows that when a remedy is devised that can bo used in the  home at a moderate cost, such a remedy  should Inevitably become popular. ;.'���'���  Pe-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.  .There are a great many catarrh cures  in the world. The most of them are  local applications, Few of them are to  bo used internally.  Unfortunately alarge number of these  catarrh remedies, especially tho ones  prescribed by tlie doctois, contain narcotics of some sort. Cocaine, opium,  whisky, and other narcotics are used.  These remedies give temporary relief.  The patient thinks he is bettor right  away.. In a few weeks, however, he discovers his mistake. Not only is his catarrh no better, but ho has acquired tho  habit of using some narcotic This  happens in a multitude of cases.  One reason why Peruna has  found permanent use In so many  homes Is that It contains no narcotic of any kind.  Peruna Is perfectly harmless. It  can be used any length of time  without   acquiring a drug habit  ��>���������������*>��������>-������ ���*��>����������������������������> ��������������������������  Phoenix-        ^J ��   ���  Greenwood  Leave Phoenix    -     9.00 a. m.
