The new Grunby stock will be offered at $85 per share to stockholders,  on the basis of one share of new stock  for every ten shares cf record on the  books of the company at 3 p. m. on  Jan. 20th, 1910, provided the privi-  ledfis be exercised on or before February 21 st, 1910  The authorized capital of the Granby  company is $15,000,000, of which  $13,500,000 is issued and outstanding,  the par of the stock being $100. From  the sale of 13,500 shares of'treasury  stock at $85 the Granby company will  receive $1,147,500; at the same time  stockholders will be in receipt of rights  worth ab> ut $2 per share.  , The, stockholders'sevenl years aj��o  voted the issuance of the treasury  stock to piy foi the company's invest  ment in the shares of the Crow's Nest  Coal company, and it is presumed that  the proceeds from the stock now to issue will be used in paying the indebtedness incurred in the acquisition of  these shares.  It is understood the Granby company entered the year 1910 with several thousands of cash in its treasury  and with no debts aside from monthly  payrolls except the liability for the  Crow's Nest Pass company's shares  above referred to. At the end of its  last fiscal year Granby had accounts  and bills payable of $971,000; it also  had stock and bonds in the treasury  carried at $931,000.

G. L. Walker, in the Boston Commercial, comments as follows on Gran-  by's new stock issue:  "Granby Consolidated is about to  issue 13,500 shares of its treasury  stock at $85 per shares, giving present  stockholders the right to subscribe for  one new share for each' io-now;held;  kThe value of these rights will probably  be equivalent to a $250 per share  dividend. .The money received by  the sale of this stock,'.$��,���147,500, will  be more than-sufficient to pay off^ the.  indebtedness incurred by Granby's  purchase of its interest in the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal & Coke company, from  which it obtains its fuel supply.  "The Granby,company must be in  excellent financial condition now,? as it;  paid only one dividend of $2. per share'  ���last year. -Its extraordinary; construction account is closed and.it is producing copper at the rate of more;than  30,000,000 pounds annually at a cosi  of not over eight and a half cents. It  must, therefore, be earning at the rati-  of more than $ 1 o per share annually  on the 148,500 shares which it will  have outstanding after the proposed  issue of 13,500 shares is completed. I  have persistently recommended' the  purchase of Granby. I believe the  stock will ultimately be worth $150 to  $200 per share. Il shonld go higher  immediately."  Back to lh�� Print Shop.  W. B. Willcox and Elmer D. Hall,  both former editors of the Phoenix  Pioneer, who left newspaper work to  till the soil and enjoy ranch life, are  returning to the activities of a print  shop. Mr. Willcox, after leaving tht  Pioneer two years ago, grew big apples  in the famed Yakima district, but thi  perfume of printers' ink appears to  have been more attractive than that of  the apple blossom, and he is now located in the printing business-in Spokane. The last issue of the Orient  Journal contains the following reference to the other ex Pioneer man: "It  is announced that Elmer D. Hall wil  soon start the publication of a news-  Daper at Bossburg. Elmer, who is an  experienced newspaper man, has tried  bard to break away from journalism b>  raising an appetite and spuds on his  ranch near Bossburg, but tvidently the-  fascinating field for a "long felt-want"  bas proved too tempting."  concentrated.

Copper Co:  'Referred to Ottawa        ]  The^British Columbia Copper company has made application for a conciliation board to deal with the ultimatum of Greenwood union of the  Western Federation" of Miners, and the  latter's edict to members to quit work  ,.has. been withdrawn.;- It is expected  the board will-sit in the course .of a  month and in the meantime operations  at the company's mine and smelter  continue as usual.  Some time ago the local branch of  the. Western Federation of Miners  notified the British Columbia Copper  company that the members in its employ at Mother Lode mine'and smelter  would quit work on Jan. 10th, unless  the company agreed to employ members of the -order exclusively.  The company replied that it was impossible to coerce the non-union employees to join the Federatipn;.-as long  as an employee was efficient, they did  not care anything about the man's  creed, nationality or connection with  labor unions.  The company made application to  the department at Ottawa for a conciliation' board, which has been granted.  The department at Ottawa has written  the organization at Greenwood informing them of the-serious nature  of the steps they had ttrken in inciting a  strike of employees of: the company  ajid the penalty to which they were  liable. According to the Dominion  act it was the .duty of the organization  to apply for the conciliation board, and  not, that of the company, and only  this action on the part of the company  removed the Federation's liability to a  heavy fine.     .

ASAYA-NEURAIX" represents the latest conclusions of medical research in the effort to supply the  nervous organization of the body with the elements required to restore normal nervous health in a form capable  ot being assimilated by the weakest digestive organs. ���     ���  As is well known, every effort of the mind and every movement of a muscle uses up a part of the tissues of the  nervous system, the waste products of which have been found by chemical examination of the excretions to consist  largely of mineral phosphates.  In health, when the nervous forces are not over-exerted, certain foods, such as fish, eggs, milk, etc., supply  sufficient of the phosphatic principle to restore this loss.  But when a person, young or old, through over-work, worry, intense excitement, grief, alcoholic or other excesses,  over-exerts the' nerve powers, accelerating the using up of nerve tissue and the consequent loss of the phosphatic  principle past the power of recuperation by the ordinn ry channels of the food, the condition of .nervous exhaustion results.  These facts have long been known, and physicians have for years endeavored to aid the system to regain its  j  normal supply of the vital phosphatic element by the giving of phosphorus compounds of many kinds.  The preparation���"ASAYA-NEURALL"���may be described briefly, as the latest advance in^the art of  . phosphatic medication, suitably prepared for general public use. In it phosphorus i* supplied in practically the  same form as it exists in the human system, thus enabling this nerve building element to be easily assimilated even  by those whose digestive powers have been so weakened by disease as to make it impossible for them to retain and  assimilate phosphorus preparations of any other kind. It is a safe, home remedy, immeasurably superior to any  previous compound for similar purposes, and should be taken by persons suffering from  ���Wb^m  NERVOUS  NERVOUS  EXHAUSTION  DEBILITY  NERVOUS  HYSTERIA  PROSTRATION  INSOMNIA  For the nervous despondency frequently experienced by women when recovering from child-birth and for all  conditions of nervous derangement resulting from the causes named above.  " ASAYA-NEURALL" checks the night sweats due to extreme nervous debility, and, under the physician's  direction, will be found of great service as a reconstructive tonic in the treatment of wasting and debilitating diseases,  especially Consumption, where it is of prime importance to maintain the nervous strength, and during the convalescence from acute diseases, such as Pneumonia, La Grippe, etc. .  FREE TRIAL SAMPLE OFFERED.���BENEFICIAL EFFECTS ALMOST IMMEDIATELY EVIDENT.  The first effect of this preparation is the lifting of the feeling of depression and the awakening to a more lively  interest iu things about us. Ability tosleep returns, the digestive powers are roused, the appetite improves, and a  general fteling of rejuvenation and renewal of energy is felt. The beneficial effects are evident almost at the first  dose. Not due,.however, to jalse stimulation, as in alcoholic preparations, but to real feeding of the under-nourished'  nerve tissues, while the time to stop taking this preparation is as evident as is the time to stop at meal time, that is,  when the nerves have been fed until their normal,condition returns and a buoyant feeling of nervous health replaces  the depression previously experienced.  SPECIAL  NOTICE.      Any iddlt Person may- within ten days from the date when this notice appears, obtain  a liberal sized free sample bottle of "ASAYA-NEURALL," quite sufficient to definitely  establish the value of this preparation in their case, by filling in the coupon below and presenting same to the undersigned.  ASAYA-NEURALL" is regularly sold in large bottles at $1.50 each."    One bottle, taken three times a day  according to directions, affords treatment for about forty days, all that is usually required for ordinary derangements  of the nervous system. r -  xt     "AS1AY^"NEURALL" is prepared solely by the DAVIS & LAWRENCE CO., Manufacturing Chemists, of  .New York, Montreal and Shanghai, and may be obtained locally from, .

That Canada made public floatations  in London in 1909, of $200,000,000,  that it sold within its:borders^$30,000-  H. M. Johaton  Early in March, 1909, two miners  engaged in assessment work in tbe  face of a tunnel near the mouth of  Little Cottonwood canyon, Salt Lake  County, were shut in by a' heavy cave  of earth. When they were missed,  friends hastened to < their rescue and  made heroic efforts lo release the entombed men. But as fast as the fallen  earth wbg removed fre��h caves sealed  the passage way.  The rescue party was made up  chiefly of ranchmen, who knew little  of mining. -, As day after day went by  without progress-they became desperate and in their eager but unskilled  efforts to save their friends, endangered  their, own lives.  Not until the men had been imprisoned fo�� three days and hope had  run low did news of their peril reach  the world through the newspapers.  Before the ink on the papers was dry  a big red automobile went flying over  the rough mountain roads toward the  scene of the disaster. It bore as passengers one of the foremost mining  engineers of the West and an experienced mine foreman.  From the moment these two men  jumped out of their machine the situation at the St.   Patrick  tunnel  was  transformed.   -A team was sent galloping into Murray after timbers, specific  duties were assigned to  the volunteer  rescuers and order  took the  place  of  chaos.    Altera twelve-hour battle with  the shifting  sand,   in  which  progress  was made foot by foot, but with no retreats, the prisoners  were  dragged  to  life aud safely through* the  barricade,  The engineer whose  keen sense of  duty and quick  decision  saved   these  two, and perhaps other lives, is Maurice M. Johnson.    The incident given  brings out more clearly than a page of  generalities  the   qualities   that   have  made him chief of the staff of experts  maintained by Samuel Newhouse and  the trusted adviser of other prominent  mine operators.  "Be sure you are right; then go  ahead," is the lesson of this man's' career, even though it is not found hanging on his office wall, in the Newhouse  Building in Salt-Lake City. His experience on the 'practical side of mining covers a period of 35 years, 16 of  which have been spent in metal mining  in Utah,' Idaho, Nevada and British  Columbia.  In. 1898,   Mr. Johnson   identified  himself with the Utah Consolidated, or  Highland Boy, of Bingham ��� and   later  became manager of the- Boston 'Consolidated and the Cactus   mines,   con  suiting engineer for the Dominion Copper company and field expert for Sam-J  uel Newhouse.    In the latter  capacity j  he has given opinions upon which mil-//  lions of dollars have  been   invested���if   with what success the remarkable  rec-1  Pe-ru-na Promptly Relieves  Severe Cofd and La Grippe  "Last winter I waa ill with pneumonia after having la frippe.

It may be said truthfully  that, since their relations began, Mr.  Newhouse has undertaken no mining  enterprise, of .any consequence without  Mr. Johnson's approval, and in executing these, and other commissions, the  latter has examined and reported on  more mining properties than any other  engineer in this country.: Nor is there  any other engineer whose opinion is accepted by or carries more weight with  people in all parts of trie country, who  have need of expert mining council  than Mr. Johnton.  Among several mining enterprises in  which Mr. Johnson is personally interested is the Western Nevada Copper  company. As manager he has.opened  up about 250,000 tons of low grade  copper ore in that estate which is now  awaiting the advent of a railroad to become a shipper.���Copper, Curb and  Minning Outlook.  ��� ���������������������������������������������������������^�����������������������������������������.i9��>*>#*  ���������������������������������a  Team work of all kinds promptly  attended to; apply to W W.
