JJWmt (Battpajft fe JEa  Last Wendesday a man who is one  of the most important mining engineers in Japan was a visitor in Phoenix and spent some time inspecting  the mines of the Granby Consolidated,  in company with Supt. Smith. J.  Kojima, M. R., is in charge of Ashio  copper mine in the land of the Mikado, a mine that has been worked for  some 300 years. When the Pioneer  man found Mr. Kojima at his room in  al the Hotel Brooklyn that evening,  he was as polite and courteous as his  people are universally credited with  being, especially the educated class.  Mr. Kojima landed in San Francisco  in February to spend six months in  visiting the metallurgical works of note  on the American Continent, and from  his own story, he has seen more of  them than falls to the lot of most  men.  First he went to Arizona and saw  the Copper Queen and other mines, at  Bisbee and Globe; then to Mexico at  Cananeajthen to the Mountain Copper  Co. in California; then to the gold  fields of Colorado; then to Butte and  the gigantic Washoe smelter near  there; then to the Mesaba iron mines  in Minnesota, and to the famous, lake  copper mines in Michigan, including  the Calumet and Hecla, Osceola,  Tamarack, etc.; then to see the hydro-  electrical works at Niagara Falls; then  to Boston and New York and lo the  refining works of the Nichols Copper  Co. at Paterson, N. J.; then to the  Baldwin Locomotive Works at Philadelphia, and to the Carnegie Steel  Works at Pittsburg. Coming west  again, Mr. Kojima saw the Homestake  mine at Lead, Sjuth Dakota; the great  properties at Bingham, and other Utah  mines and smelters, and the.old >ork-  idgs of the Consolidated Virginia and  other mines at Virginia City, Nevada,  not having time to see Goldneld.  Tonopah or Manhattan. After taking  in a few other mines and smelters, he  finally came to the Boundary to inspect the Granby smelter and mines,  expecting to sail for the country of the  cherry blossom on July 25th on the.  steamer .Minnesota from Seattle.  Asked regarding the mines and  works of which he is manager, Mr.  Kojima gave some interesting details  of the enterprise. The mines are located 1 15 miles from Tokio, in the  mountains, with which there are rail  connections. Mis company has about  50 miles of underground workings,  and they have attained a depth of  2,000 feet or 500 feet below water  drainage. At the mines are employed  about 3,200 men, with the same number at iheconcentrating works and smel  ter, making over 6,000 men on the  payroll of the concern. The wages  are the equivalent of about 30 cents  per day in our money, the cost of living being extremely low. The properties are operated by the Furukawa  Copper Co., of Tokio, of which Ichibei  Furukawa is the head.  The ore from the Ashio mine averages about 14 per cent copper, the  concentrating ore running five to one.  At the smeltei there are seven furnaces  of 200 tons capacity each daily, but  only four of them are in use. The  company has also built refining works  to handle the output.  For power waterfalls are used to a  3 large extent in Japan for industrial  purposes, the steep mountain sides  offering great opportunities for hydro-  electrical development, which are  taken advantage of. Haulage in ihe  mines is by electric power, and  American mining and smelting ma-  chiners is used almost entirely by the  operators.  Mr. Kojima was surprised at the  magnitude and economy of operations  at the plant of the Granby Co., and expressed much gratification at what he:  witnessed here and at Grand Forks.  He is a graduate of the University ol  Japan at Tokio, and the Asho properties are the largest copper mines in  Japan.        _   The Grand Forks districl licensing  commissioners met Monday, and grant  ed licenses to F. Ilartinger for Bannock and Chris Matti for Niagara. The  application for George B. Todd for  Upper Franklin was refused, and the  case will be appealed to the county  court.  It is understood that a short time  ago orders had been received by Great  Noithern contractors to proceed with  the construction of the line up the  North Fork of Kettle river as far as  the Pathfinder mine. A few days ago,  however, the orders were countermanded for the time being, it being almost  impossible to secure laborers for the  railway construction that is now in  hand.  DUNCAN ROSS BACK PROM OTTAWA.  Says Greenwood-Phoenix  Mall Service is Up  to Railway Commission.  Duncan Ross, M. P., owner of the  Boundary Creek Times, has returned  to Greenwood from his arduous duties  in the cause of saving the country at  Ottawa, reaching his home town Wednesday evening with his wife and  daughter.  When seen by the editor of the  Pioneer, Mr. Ross did not attempt to  MAPLE LEAF  AT $125,000  John Dern,   of   Salt  the Deal.  Lake  in  Property  Has   a   Fine  Showing.  Ore  DUNCAN   ROSS,    M.   P.  defend the present incomprehensibly,  inexplicably slow mail service between  Greenwood and Phoenix, in the leasi.  He evidently agrees with the residents  and business men of both places that  a reform should take place in this respect, even though it is put in force  by a Liberal government. So far, however, as far as can be learned, nothing  has been accomplished, and if Mr.  Ross wishes to mail a letter from his  office to that of the Pioneer, it still requires two days for transmission, although but five miles apart and connected by railway.  Mr. Ross states that the cost of  mail service by stage is prohibitive, but  that it should not be oy rail, and that  the matter is now up to the railway  commission to require the C. P. R.  to make the connections necessary.  Installed Qreenwnod Odd Fellows.  Walter S. Cook, acting district deputy grand master, went to Greenwood  Tuesday, accompanied by Tom John  son, Alex Milkie and Charles y.c-  Cague, to install the officers of Boundary Valley Lodge No. 38, I. O. O. F.  He was assisted by past grands W. B.  Fleming, G. B. Taylor and T, M. Gully, the following being the list of officers installed:  N. G., D.  McGlashan.  H, H.   Huff,  H. Mortimer.  S. E.

Thomas, superintendent ofthe Dominion Copper Co.'s  Boundary Falls smelter, visited Franklin camp, in company with George A.  McLeod and made an examination of  the Maple Leaf group. He was so  well pleased with the property that he  at once took an option 011 it for $i2<;,-  000 on behalf of John Dern, a wealthy  mining operator of Salt Lake City,  Utah.  Mr. Dern "arrived in the Boundary  this week, and went up to the Maple  Leaf, returning to Grand Forks last  night, and thence to Greenwood. It  is known that Mr. Dern expressed himself as greatly pleased with the Maple  Leaf, and there seems little doubt but  that he will take the bond and proceed  at once with development under its  terms, which call for $5,000 in cash,  the balance extending over 18 months.  John Dern is the president of the  Consol'duted Mercur Gold Mines and  Milling Co., of Salt Lake City, a company which has one of the largest mills  in the world at Mercur, Utah, and has  paid more than a million in dividends.  He is prominent in mining circles, and  if he takes hold in the Boundary, as  seems probable, it should mean still  more American capital for the mines  of the Boundary.  Less ihan two months ago the Maple  Leaf group was bonded from Fee  Brothers of, Grand Forks, and H. W.  Young, of Vancouver, for $60,000, by  George A. McLeod and H. W. Warrington, of Grand Forks, an initial payment of $3,000 having already been  made. One cut, 65 feet across the  ledge, gives an average of S per cent  copper and $2.50 in gold. Average  samples taken last week across several  feet of the ledge yielded 22.7 per cent  copper and 11 oz. silver. It is one or  the big things of Franklin camp.  liminaries to the amalgamation having  been practidally completed, it is expected that the new concern will  shortly begin operations on their properties in this camp, adjoining the  Granby Consolidated mines on the  south.  The Wolfard group of four claims,  on Fourth of July creek, Wellington  camp, owned by Capt. Rogers, Lake  I). Wolfard and brother of Spokane,  has been bonded to eastern capitalists.  Recently Mr. Wolfard had the group  examined by a mining expert and die [ Providence and Skylark  deal was tbe result, About a thousand  SEVERAL MAY  PAY DIVIDENDS  Granby and B. C.

At a meeting of the Meadow Laik  Mining and Development Syndicate,  held here this week, the following  officers were chosen: Chairman, G.  W. Rumberger; secretary-treasurer, M.  M. Stevens; managing committee, W.  J. Porter, G. W. Rumberger, J. L.  Martin, R. D. Morkill and J. J. Caul-  lield. Besides the above the syndicate  includes J. A. Morrin, C. H. Reeves,  Wm Delahay, Dr. J E. Spankie, A.  S. Hood, W. G. McMynn and \V. D.  Lawson. Development will be started  next week on the properly of the syndicate,   which    adjoins   the   Skylark.  Announcement is made by the  Anaconda News that the B. C. Copper  Co. has secured an 18 months' working  bond on the Lone Star and Washing  ton group of copper claims in White's  camp, just across the international  boundary line. The group is owned  by the Reservation Mining & Milling  Co., of Spokane, who did considerable  development from 1897 t0 '9��', when  work was discontinued The property  has a small development plant, and is located about four miles from the Great  Northern railway. Henry Johnson  will be the foreman in charge of the  work to be undertaken there shortly.  Talked Of.  0.  G  ,  E  R.  S.  N.  L.  S.  N.  R.  S.  V.  L.  S.  V.  R.  s.  s,  L.  s.  s.,  Is the Postal Service in  this Section.  Here is another sample of the  splendid (?) postal service afforded in the Boundary, which can  be substantiated by affidavits if  necessary.  Last Saturday an hour before  the mail closed, a copy of the  Pioneer was mailed to one of the  regular subscribers in Boundary  Falls, as usual. That copy was  not received till Thursday of this  week���just live days later. Where  it was in the meantime, perhaps  Inspector Greenfield can find out.  The distance between the two  places is eight or nine miles by  wagon road, or about 23 miles  by rail, with passenger trains running every week day  Another fact. A man left  Boundary Falls on Saturday's  train, went to Grand Forks, 28  miles, staid over night, went to  Franklin camp with horses and  back next day, 100 miles, and  thence back to Boundary Falls,  where he arrived before the Pioneer that was mailed the same  day he started. In other words,  the Pioneer had to travel but  23 miles, while he travelled over  1 50 miles (100 miles with horses)  and beat the Pioneer to Boundary Falls.  It may also be mentioned, incidentally, that ordinarily subscribers to the I'ioneer 111 Boundary Falls do not receive their  papers till Tuesday, three days  after publication���which means  that they travel at the rate of  about eight miles daily between  the two places.  Inspector Greenfield should  be proud of this record, to say  nothing of Postmaster-General  Rodolphe l.emieux.  But one diamond drill is now being  operated at the Granby mines.  The work of installing the electric  drive compressor at the Emma mine  is actively under way.  No. 2 shaft on the Moreen, Dead-  wood camp, is now down about 50  feet. At the 100 level crosscutting  will be commenced.  Two diamond drills are now being  continuously operated at the McKinley  mine, Franklin camp, by the Spokane  Diamond Drill Contracting Co.  Work has been started on the Dominion Copper Co.'s large compressor  building, near the ball grounds on the  Idaho claim, the frame being up.  Drifting at the 170 foot level of the  Prince Henry has been started, the ore  being better at the lower levels than  near the surface. Shipments are expected to be started in the near future.  Foundations for the three mammoth  blast furnaces at the B. C. Copper  smelier have been completed, and the  first of the furnaces is expected to  arrive shortly.  One shift has been laid off at the  Pathfinder mine, which is being developed by ihe Granby Consolidated under bond. Report has it that some  important ore bodies have been developed in this property  The Canada fraction claim in  Central camp has been sold to F.  Edward Brown by li. O. Lewis for  $3,000. in six, twelve, and eighteen  months. At least 100 feet ot work  must be done in the first six  months  Jacob Langeloth, president, and J.P.  Graves, manager, ofthe Granby Con  solidated, are credited in Spokane with  being about to close a deal for the  Hercules mine in the Coeur d'Alenes  of Idaho, on a basis of $6,000,000.  The rich ledge recently encountered  in the workings of the Strathmoie  mine is now about a fool in width,  some of the ore running around $200  per ton in gold and silver. A car  will probably be shipped by the end of  the month.  Charles Biesel, the new manager of  ihe Snowshoe, is expected to arrive in  camp today to stay, the mine to be  opened up next Monday. W. S. Mary  & Co., Ltd., who will have charge of  the Snowshoe boarding house, ha\e  had men at work there this week, pulling the boarding and bunk houses in  order,  A meeting of the shareholders of  the    Phoenix    Amalgamated    Copper  e����o��t����toa������������t��*��*����t��  Mines, Ltd.,  inst., for the  rectors  and  was called  for   the   17th  purpose   of   electing   di-  pre-  officers.    All  other  Religious Census of Phoealx.  Revs. Lundie of the Presbyterian  church and Miller of the Methodist  church, have completed, as far as it is  possible to do so, their work of procuring the names, location and religious denominations of the several families in Phoenix. The total number  of families was found to be 168, and  the number of children 206. No account was taken tither of married people without families nor bachelors and  spinsters. There was some difficulty  in religious classification on account of  so many mixed marriages, but in every  case credit was given to the church  they most frequently attended, and  the people were urged to remain faithful to the same, both in personal sympathy and financial aid. The following table shows the different denominations :  FAMILIES.      CHILDREN.  Presbyterian . . .  Methodist   Roman Catholic... 33  Lutheran      21  English Church... 20  Baptist  5  Congregational ... 2  Adventists  3  47-  35 ���  62  3S  34  25  29  6  3  9  Unless all signs lail, within the next  few months there will be several mining  concerns in the Boundary that will be  in the dividend paying column--in  eluding some that have not oeen there  before.  As noted last week by the Pioneer,  ihere is talk in Boston of a dividend  by the Granby Consolidated 111 September. In all probability this will be  the same as the last dividend, namely,  3 per cent., or a total of $405,0 :o,  making considerably over $1,000,000  paid by this company. This week a  report comes from the east, also from  Boston, that the British Columbia  Copper is considering the paying of  dividends, at the rate of ten cents per  month. Should this be carried out,  the dividend would be between $30,-  000 and $40,000 monthly.  Then the Providence mine, which  has been energetically worked for  more than a year with 30 or 40 men,  and is known to be in splendid shape,  out of debt, and with perhaps $15,000  in the treasury, should be able ere long  to pay dividends once more, having  already paid about $22,000 back to  shareholders. The Skylark, also, is  rapidly approaching the point where  profits can be realized by the shareholders, being in the pink of condition, and having paid about $24,000  on the $30,000 bond, and looking better today than ever. Besides these  there are several smaller mines that are  getting to the profit-sharing stage, as is  well known.  While nothing official is given out  as yet regarding these several properties, it is known that the matter of  dividends is being seriously considered.  Total    16S 206  . F.oulds Bros...of.Greenwood, again  took first money in a hand drilling  contest at Rossland this week.  It now costs $5 to ride a bicycle on  the sidewalk of Grand Forks, according to a by-law passed there this week  by the city fathers.

Just thirteen years ago James Cro-  nin, with Father Coccolo and an Indian  named Peter, staked the St. Eugene  property on Moyie lake, and Ihe work  of transforming this prospect into the  second greatest lead-silver mine on the  American continent was begun. Without railways, towns and wagon roads,  supplies were packed 30 miles fiom  Ft. Steele, and development cf this remarkable mine undertaken. After  thirteen years continuous management  Mr. Cronin has retired, and his resignation was reluctantly accepted.  British Columbia needs more men  of the Cronin stamp. It is already  greatly blessed in this way, but there  is always' room for more of them. It  is a good thing for the employees, a  good thing for the companies, and a  good thing for the mining industry  generally that we have such men.  May their tribe increase.  Retirement  of   a Popular   Man.  Half Year's Progress in Boundary.  In last week's issue of the Pioneer  the readers of this paper doubtless  noticed the splendid record of the  production of the district for the first  half of 1906. Making records.is, of  course, nothing new in this section,  but the advance made here over the  same period of last year is certainly most  marked. During the first six months  of 1906 the output of ore produced  by Boundary mines was over 633,000  tons, valued at more than $3,000,000.  During the first six months of 1905  the output for the same mines was  1458,193 tons, which shows an increase  Here and there can be found an inactive spot in the Kootenays or Yale,  but the mining industry is in so much  better condition than ever before, that  the temporarily quiet camps only tend  to throw the busy places into greater  prominence.  It makes very little difference whether you spell it Duma, or Douma, the  individuals who compose tkat so-called  governing body in Russia have their  hands full in endeavoring to wrest  something from the autocrats of that  country without plunging the land into  internecine warfare. The latest advices are that the latter practically  prevails in that unfortunate country.  The wise ones at Ottawa have folded up their tents and presumably gone  home, after quite a session in the Parliament buildings. The piece of legislation that is probably most interesting  to the people of British Columbia is  that called the Lord's Day Observance  Act. This act had so many alterations and changes, in trying to meet  the conflicting wishes of the east and  west to some extent, that its author  would hardly know it, and probably is  not satisfied with it. It is intended  to come into force in March, 1907,  but before that another session of Parliament is due, and what will become  of the bill then no one can tell.

When Maxim, the famous gun inventor, placed his gun before a com  mittee of judges, he stated its carrying  power to be much below what he feit  sure the gun would accomplish.    The  result of the trial therefore was a great  surprise, instead of disappointment.   It  is the same with the   manufacturers of  Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.

Announcement has   been   made of  the retirement of James Cronin, man- j of nearIy fifty per Cent over one year  ago.    Boundary mines are producing  ager of the Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Co. of Canada, Ltd., including the St. Eugene, Center Star and  War Eagle mines, and in many ways  the retirement of Mr. Cronin is more  notable than usual..  "Jim" Cronin was undoubtedly one  of the most popular mine managers in  British Columbia, and if report be  true, justly so. He had been a prospector himself, knew the hardships of  that life, as well as that of the everyday miner, and in his dealings with  the many mtn he has employed in the  last thirteen years, has undoubtedly  found that knowledge of the greatest  use to him. Fair and just in his dealings, whether with capitalists or muckers, he certainly earned  an   enviable  more than 100,000 tons of ore monthly, and they are doing this while some  of the blast furnaces in the three district smelters are cold, owing to enlargements and improvements.  Two or three months later, when  the enlargements are completed, there  is every reason to expect that the tonnage will be increased by from 25 to  50 per cent, according to the number  of furnaces that'it is possible to keep  in blast an average number of days  per month. In fact, it should be no  trouble, when the B. C. Copper, the  Granby and the Dominion Copper  have their enlargements completed in  October, to maintain an average output of 150,000 tons per month, which  B. C.

Upon the organization of  the present owning company, Mr.  Cronin, who had given his time almost  entirely to the great St. Eugene mine,  was made manager also of the company's Rossland mines. At these  mines the former managers had had  more or less trouble with the employees, growing out of the disastrous  labor strike of several years ago. Mr.  Cronin's first move was to declare  peace on a footing satisfactory to all  concerned, and it is safe to say that  the company did not lose anything oy  this diplomatic move, prompted by the  fairness of the man making it. Later  a so-called "grub strike" took place at  the St. Eugene mine, the kind of  trouble that is most annoying to managers of mines.

The smelter output is the surest index of real progress in this section,  and from the records heretofore made,  and sure to be broken in the near future, it is certain that hereafter even  more attention will be attracted to this  section than in the past. This, too,  does not take into account several  large mining enterprises which are  reasonably sure to be the cause of adding very largely to the tonnage of this  section, but which as yet are in an embryonic state.

Last week the mines of Yale and  Kootenay shipped 29,484 tons of ore,  making 901,226 tons for this year.

The Campbell group of claims situated on Salmon creek, about one mile  from Beaton, has been sold to the  Madison Alining Co., of Elwood, Ind.,  for $3,000.

Lemieux,  For more than a year the Boundary  press has been complaining of the  abominable mail service between  Greenwood and Phoenix. Although  these two prosperous cities are scarcely  five miles apart it requires two days  for mail matter to pass from one to  the other. The Phoenix Pioneer declares that Duncan Ross, member for  the district and resident at Greenwood,  has never made a request to the government in the matter, although repeatedly urged to do so. The Greenwood Ledge, a new comer, has speedily sized up the situation, and joins in  the chorus of complaint. When one  considers that the Boundary is such  a busy industrial center, it is almost incredible that so serious a grievance  should have received so little attention from those whose duty it is to  minister to the requirements of their  constituents.���Victoria Week.

The fine steamer,  Princess Victoria, has shown her heels  to everything that floats between Vancouver and Seattle. On the Atlantic  the new Empresses have been fracturing records between the old land and  the new, for the course they take. On  the Pacific the old reliable Empresses  are doing a tremendous business and  holding their own with the best of  them. And, to come nearer home,  the Kuskanook, recently launched at  Nelson for the Kootenay lake service,  is keeping up the reputation of the  company in a manner that makes the  officials as well as the patrons of the  company smile, This water business  is one place where James J.

It may not be surprising, but it is at  least noticeable, that a lot of little fellows have an intense desire to trail  along after the big ones in the mining  field. As long as they do not resort  to misrepresentation, direct or implied,  no great harm is done, perhaps, but  when they attempt to secure buyers for  shares by false statements, it is time to  call a halt, no matter how meritorious  the proposition may be in itself.  Among others, the Granby Consolidated is so well known in financial  circles in the east from its dividends  and great output and earning capacity,  that its name seems to be one to conjure by, as will be noted.  A short time ago the Q. S. Gold  Mining and Smelting Co. were advertising through their New York brokers,  in the New York World, that their  mines were "located in the same mineral zones as the famous Granby and  Le Roi mines, which are netting big  returns to investors," and on the  strength of this statement the dollar  shares were offered at 50 cents each.  As nearly as we can learn, the Q. S.  mines are located somewhere near  Loomis in the American Okonogan,  and are properties of merit, but are no  more in the locality of the Granby or  Le Roi than they are in that of the  Calumet & Hecb, or the Honiestake.  They may have "an unlimited supply  of ore," as the advertisement states,  but a straightforward method in selling  stock would commend itself to the  average investor. Pickard & McGoni-  gal, of 290 Broadway, N. Y , had  their name signed to the advertisement.  In a recent issue of the United  States Investor, of Boston, is published a description of the Lucky Jim  mine, which is alleged to be located in  the Trail Creek mining district, and  that the famous Granby mines are also  in the same vicinity, with a lot more  matter that in reality had no more  foundation in fact than the reference  to the Granby mines. The intention  was to sell shares on the name of the  Granby, as they put it, "only a small  quantity of stock." If tbe Lucky  Jim mine referred to is in the Trail  Creek mining division, it does not  seem to have been heard of, and the  sooner such misleading information is  suppressed, the better for investors,  whether in the United States or Canada.  John R. Greenfield, the courteous  postoffice inspector of this district,  wtites the Pioneer from Vancouver  that he takes exception to some of the  statements appearing in this paper regarding the superlatively ancient mail  service between Greenwood and Phoenix���especially to the statement .recently printed by the Pioneer that it  requires often from two to four or five  days to do the trick. He recites how  one can mail a letter here at 9 a. m.,  have it reach Grand Forks via Great  Northern, and he transferred to the  C. P. R. at 1:07 p. m., and reach  Greenwood at 2:2s p, m., requiring  exactly five hours and 28 minutes in  transit.    All this  sounds   very pretty,  but there are a few holes in the story  that  Mr. Greenfield overlooks.  ���M  In the first place, there is no pro  vision whatever for sending mail from  Greenwood to Phoenix by that same  route���and it requires the twj to four  day trip, or any other time used up.  But, taking Mr. Greenfield's statement  as it stands, one cannot mail a letter  at 9 a. 111. and have it go out on the 9  a. m. train���even he should know better than that, as long as he has been  in the service. It is true that Postmaster Matheson is accommodating to  business men in holding the mail open  as long a< possible, but, while it may  accomplish something part of the time,  it is merely a makeshift at best, and  not worthy a decent mail service.  To repeat the story. Heie are two  cities not more than five miles apart,  with say 2,000 population each, connected by a railway running passenger  trains every week day, and yet it requires at least two days to transmit a  letter from Greenwood to Phoenix.  And this with a stage running between  the two places 365 times a year for the  last eight or ten years. There is a  large amount of business transacted  between tbe two places. They probably contribute close to $2,000 daily  to the railways. They are entitled to  better service at the hands of the Ottawa authorities. And yet this prehistoric, antedeluvian, unspeakably slow-  mail service is what we have to contend with. Now then, Mr. Greenfield,  Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, Postmaster-  General, Mr. Deputy Postmaster-  General, and Duncan Ross, M. P.  (who seemingly does nothing to help  the matter), is it not a fact ? Is this  not an outrage ? You know very well  that it is, and that it should be remedied, as it can be.  WTRS. EMMA 37LBISSNEB  Suffered Over Two Years���Health Wat  In a Precarious Condition���Caused  By Pelvic Catarrh.

Mrs. Emm* Flelssnor, 1112 Sixth  Ji.ro., Seattle, Wash., Worthy Treasurer Sons of Tempcranco, writes:  "/ suffered over two years with Irregular and painful periods. My health  was In a very precarious condition and  I was anxious to find something to restore my health and strength.  "1 was very glad to try Peruna and  delighted to find that It was doing mo  good. I continued to use It a little over  three months and found my trouble* removed.  "/ consider It a splendid medicine  and shall never be without It, taking a  dose occasionally when I feel rundown and tired.''  Oar files contain thousands of testimonials which Dr. Hartman has received from grateful, happy women  who have been restored to health by  his remedy, Peruna.    "You Must Advertise."  "You   must advertise"���with   considerable accent on the  'must' "���is a  common adjuration  to business   men.  The expression is too strong.'    "Must"  is not the word.    "You should  advertise" is better.    No man is obliged to  advertise.     He can do the other thing I  ���which is usually nothing���if he pre-|  fers.     He   can  go  along, not  ahead,  striving to hold  the  trade he already  has and to catch such business as happens to come   in   his   direction.    He  may be   content   to   do just   that; he  may prefer to take it easy and to avoid  the arduous work demanded of those  who advertise and make   their  advertising pay.  He'may not care to increase the  voiume of his business, being satisfied  with what he has and unwilling to assume the responsibility attendant upon  the management of large affairs. To  such a man it is idle to say, "You  must advertise."  But to the progressive, aleri, ambitious and far-seeing merchant, advertising is indeed the breath of life. It  is part of "the game," and a most faci-  nating part.  The true advertiser finds in it all the  enjoyment which the hunter or angler  derives from his favorite pastime. To  him it opens up new possibilities, new  fields of endeavor, and new outlets for  his activity. And it is also foolish to  say to him, "You must advertise." As  well say to a sportsman, "You must  hunt," or to an angler, "You must  fish." ���Advertising World.  Saved His Comrade's Life.  "While returning from Grand Army  Encampment at Washington City, a  comrade at Elgin, 111., was taken with  cholera morbus and was in a critical  condition," says Mr. J. li. Houghland,  of Eldon, Iowa. "I gave him Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy and believe saved his life. I  have been engaged for ten years in immigration work and conducted many  parties to the south and west. I always carry this remedy, and have used  it on several occasions." Sold by all  drugcists.
