JlWriti JBompMgfr fe ���fl.  i  "It is planned to increase the mining and smelting capacity of the  Granby i,oco tons daily," said J. P.  Graves, general manager of the company, in Spokane this week. "The  plans are now under way, and some of  the work is being done. It will require about a year to complete the  improvements and additions. The  maximum smelting capacity, when  completed, will be about 4,500 tons  daily."  It has been known for some time  that another increase at the Granby  smelter was in contemplation by the  management, but this is the first official  announcement of the fact that has  been made, although the Pioneer pre  dieted this enlargement some months  ago.  A. B. VV. Hodges, the local manager  of the company, was asked regarding  the enlargement by the Pioneer this  week. He stated that it would not be  necessary to enlarge the present smelter  buildings materially, as far as the  battery of furnaces is concerned, but  that each of the present eight furnaces  would be given greater capacity by  being lengthened, for which there is  still room in the immense furnace  room.  It may not be generally understood,  but it is well known in Phoenix, that  the Granby mines are even now capable of supplying the tonnage required  by the intended smelter enlargement.  In fact, it has always been a question  of making the smelter large enough to  take care of the ore that the mines in  Phoenix were capable of producing.  This week will close the most successful year that the   Granby  has yet  had, the year.5f.llJS-c-PmR9nv...ending.  on June "3"6trI"or each" calendar year.  And this is a fact, notwithstanding the  further fact there have been more  difficulties to overcome in the way of  coke and car shortage than ever before, and that the smelter was idle  almost entirely during the month of  May. With these troubles now entirely overcome and everything moving  smoothly at both mines and smelter,  the fiscal year just beginning should be  even better than the one that is just  ending.  When the Granby is able to handle  regularly 4,500 tons of ore daily at the.  smelter, it will mean 135,000 tons  monthly cr 1,1590,000 per annum.  Figuring on a basis of 25 pounds of  copper recovered per ton of ore, this  would give just under 40,000,000  pounds of fine copper per annum.  Work has resumed on the Golconda  in South Deadwood camp.  After eight months .of work, the ]�����  P. U. syndicate have done some 700  feet of tunneling, and recent indications are encouraging.  A carload of ore was shipped from,  the Skylark to the Granby smelter last  week, and the small lorce is being  kept busy, on development.  Another new smelting record was  made at Dominion Copper Co.'s works  this week, when 5,566 tons of ore were  reduced in the seven.days.     ���> ..    ,  Raising from the long Curlew tunnel  to the Granby's Gold Drop workings,  a matter of some 300 feet, is expected  to be started almost an/ d&y now.  The Connection fraction, just above  Greenwood, is being developed by Jas.  Sutherland and A. L. White. It is in  good company, being near the Bay and  other high grade properties.'  Surveyors for the proposed tram line,  from the Dominion Copper Co.'s  Phoenix mines to the company's  smelting works at Boundary Falls, are  expected to be started next week.  Work is to be started in July on the"'  Alameda, adjoining, the Sunset, in  Deadwood camp. J. D. C Knapp  and E. L. Gilbert, of Minneapolis, the  owners, were recent visitors to the  property.  With the Oro Denoro, Emma and  Mountain Rose mines all working in  Summit camp, and- the B. C mine  likely to resume before long, that camp  is a busy place at present, with every  probability of its being more so   soon.  Prospectors and mine owners are  now looking after their interests in  Franklin and Gloucester camps, at the  headwaters of the North Fork of Kettle  river, where some mportant developments should be heard of this season. . . :'"  MAY BUILD  AERIAL TRAM  To  Obviate the Car  Shortage.  COMING AND GOING  Dominion Copper Co. to Make  Needed Surveys.  Caught 200 Trout.  A Grand Forks correspondent, who  is famous for accuracy, sends out the  following this week:  Christina   Lake,   with   its  beautiful  sheet of clear water, one mile wide by  fourteen    miles   long,    lying    snugly  among the mountains some two   miles  from Cascade, is once   more  the  objective point   for  dozens   of pleasure  seekers.    The fishing in this lake  just  now is much better than   it  has   been  for   years.    Speckled   trout   weighing  from one to twelve   pounds   are  daily  being caught in these waters by means  of trolling, while the "iing," a   favorite  fish in   these   parts, is   very  plentiful,  being caught with the hook and   line.  Among the mountain streams  is   Mc-  Rea  creek, which this   year  is   fairily  alive with a small species of speckled  trout.    One fisherman some two  days  ago caught no fewer than two hundred  beauties out of this creek.  John Houston Dedlrlvus.  Victoria June 26.���John Houston,  ex-M. L. A. for Nelson, will start pub  lication of a newspaper in Prince Rupert in the next few days. Houston  has been in Goldfield, Nevada, in the  realestate business, and came back to  Victoria a short time ago. He has  bought a small plant and will go  north in a few days. He says he will  land at Prince Rupert or as near as he  is allowed, and will designate his new  venture the Prince Rupert Empire.  New Officers  Elected.  At the regular weekly meeting ol  Phoenix Public Service Union No.  155, Industrial Workers of the World,  held Wednesday evening, the following  officers were chosen to serve for the  ensuing six months: President, George  A. Ball; vice-president, Napoleon  Boudreati; financial secretary, George  VV. Rogers; treasurer, James Wier:  conductor, Esther Swanson; warden,  Angus Sutherland; trustees, Alex. Mc-  Pherson, Ellis Griffin and Mrs. Wm.  Howard. The new officers will be installed at the first meeting to be held  in July.  Seven furnaces are now operating  steadily at the Granby smelter, three at  the B.C. Copper Co. smelter and three  at the Dominion Copper Co. smelter,  a total of thirteen blast furnaces at the  Boundary district smelters. With one  more in blast at the Granby works, the  entire lot will be in operation.  T~ DrTBlSserStfotig^W'TtjTTIirrrinrctr;  of Northport, Wash., visited the Greyhound, Deadwood camp, last week, on  behalf of eastern capitalists, and a deal  of some magnitude regarding the  property is now said to be pending,  with much likelihood of its being consummated. L. H. MorTatt, of Rossland,  manager of the mine, showed them  over the property.  Last- Tuesday Manager Thomas, of  the Dominion Copper Co. blew in his  third furnace at the company's Boundary Falls smelter, and says that it depends on the C.P.R. as to whether he  can keep the battery of three furnaces,  needing from 1200 to 1500 tons of ore  daily, in commission, or whether he  will have to blow them out because of  the C.P.R. ore dump shortage.  New records seem to be the thing  nowadays, so the B. C. Copper Co. gets  right in line, and this week established  another new one for seven days' smelting by that company, being 13,647 tons.  This was made up as follows: Custom ore, 4,43s tons; Mother Lode,  7,026 tons; Napoleon, 347 tons; Oro  Denoro, 1,836 tons.  The Phoenix Amalgamated Copper  Mines, Ltd., have acquired two more  mining claims adjoining the group now  owned just south of the Granby group.  The new acquisitions are the Four Ace  and Keystone claims, title passing  from G. VV. Rumberger and P. J.  Dermody at a figure not made public.  This increases the area of the company by close to 100  acres of ground.  The Dandy Dixie Minstrels.  The Dandy Dixie Minstrels is a real  colored minstrel variety show. It is  the real thing, and his set a standard  for Simon pure, old time negro minstrelsy that puts it in a class by itself.  It has no competitors, for it is absolutely alone, unequalled and unrivalled  and this expression is shared by the  dramatic writers in :tll the cities where  the Dandy Dixie Minstrels have thus  far presented their inimitable performance. The New York Herald for instance, declares that it is unquestionably the best negro minstrel show ever  seen in this country: the New Orleans  Picayune declares that it is the very  best colored minstrel organization that  has ever appeared in the Crescent  City. The Dallas Daily Times-  Herald, in reviewing the first performance in that city said: "The house  was packed, the applause was vociferous from the start." All the old  time darky songs were sung, ami all the  old time darky dances, with new time  frills, were given by the light stepping  sons of Africanus.  Burnt cork minstrelsy is all right,  but these minstrels were made black  by the brush of nature, are close to  first place as amusement and fun  creators. The Dandy Dixie Minstrels  will appear at the Opera House next  Tuesday, July 2. Seats now on sale  at Tom Brown's.  A plan is being worked  out by the  management of the Dominion Copper  Co., so that tint company shall, to a  large extent, be  independent  of railways for the hauling of ore.     The plan  is nothing less than the construction of  an aerial tramway from the company's  mine in this camp  to   the  smelter at  Boundary Falls.    This statement was  made by   Maurice M.   Johnson, consulting engineer and managing director  of the company, who was  in   Phoenix  last Tuesday, accompanied  by VV.   C.  Thomas, the company's manager.  ���'This announcement is the  result of  the recent shortage in ore cars, which  h is been felt to a greater or less-extent  ijy all the large companies operating in  the   Boundary.    Applications  to   the  C. P. R.   for adequate  transportation  facilities have  not, thus  far, been responded to in any way that the mining  company managers would like���namely,  by the supply  of ore  dumps   for the  traffic offering.    Promises are made by  C. P. R. officials from  Nelson .Winnipeg, as far east as Montreal, but the result are mighty slow in putting in their  appearance. .  In fact, Mr. Johnson stated to the  Pioneer that he had ordered surveys  to be made for the proposed tramway,  so that estimates of the cost may be  worked out. He thinks it would not  be over five miles in length, although  the ore is hauled nearly 25 miles between mines and smelter. Such a  tramway, constructed on a scale commensurate with the work it would have  to do, would call for an expenditure of  perhaps $100,000, but Mr. Johnson  says he can, with it, cut the cost of  delivering the ore to the smelter at  least in half. At present the rate is 30  cents per tori.   - v      .,   --  Cranky Peels Shortage, Too.  The Granby mines, which ship as  much ore as the B. C. Copper Co. and  Dominion Copper Co. combined, is  also feeling the C. P. R. car shortage  severely, and were it not for the Granby  also having an outlet by the Great  Northern, Local Manager Hodges  would have to blow out most of the  battery of furnaces at the smelter, and  await the C. P. R.'s sweet pleasure to  furnish ore dumps. As it is, the Great  Northern has been handling most of  the output recently from the Granby  mines. The C. P. R. has actually fur  nished eight or ten cars daily for the  Granby Gold Drop mine, but this 300  tons daily would look like 30 cents in  supplying seven furnaces that eat up  say 2700 tons each 24 hours.  Reiterated promises have been made  by the C. P. R. to furnish the cars,  and late this week they are beginning  to come in to some extent. The 80  Hart convertible dumps that were  taken away from the Boundary two or  three weeks ago, are being brought  back, and this will assist in relieving  the situation, which has been getting  strained of late. The Great Northern  has also been bringing in more steel  ore dumps for the Boundary traffic,  and slowly the C. P. R , as well, adds ]  a few steel dumps. The B. C. Copper Co., with its short haul of three or  four miles from the Mother Lode  mine to smelter, has managed to make  out.  Were it  not   for   the   fact  that the  C. P. R. has had   ample   notice  of a  year or two, of the increase in demand  that would surely be   felt in the Boundary, there would be some excuse for  this car shortage.     But a  year   or  18  months is   deemed sufficient time for  the greatest railway in Canada to supply  adequate rolling stock  for business in  a district that   has   been   one   of the  most profitable of any   on   the   entire  system of this  gigantic   railway,  officials knew what   was   going  the Boundary, and it was up  to  to prepare accordingly.  J. G. Cashen started off on a trip to  the Similkameen last Saturday.  Sheriff H. C. Kerman, of Grand  Forks, was a visitor here Saturday.  Eugene P. Shea returned Monday  from a trip to Medical Lake, Wash.  Claud McAstocker went over to  Nelson Tuesday, returning yesterday.  15. Oppenheimer, a business man  from Chewelah, was a visitor in camp  this week.  Supt. Charles Biesel, of the Snow-  shoe mine, spent several days in  Nelson this week.  R. Lawrence, the correspondence  school man, of Rossland, was here last  week on his monthly visit.  Miss Wall, primary instructor in the  public school, left yesterday, to spend  the summer vacation with her parents  in Vancouver.  Francis Knott went over to Rossland Tuesday with his daughter,Bertie,  who was to take the high school examinations there.  J. L. Martin went to Spokane Sunday, expecting to extend his trip to the  Coeur d'Alene country, where, he has  important mining interests.  Dr. R. B. Boucher is now in Chicago, taking a special postgraduate  course, and Mrs. Boucher is visiting  with the doctor's parents in Ontario.  Ettiene A. Ritter, a mining engineer  from Colorado Springs, Colo., was a  visitor here Wednesday, and took some  snap shots of the mines of this camp.  D. E. McCutcheon. representing R.  G. Dun's mercantile agency, of Vancouver, was here yesterday, and thinks  Phoenix one of the most prosperous  towns in the province. ,;,.  John A. McMaster, proprietor of the  Hotel Balmoral, left for Gloucester  camp Monday morning, where he will  look after development on some likely  prospects for a week or two yet.  Wm, Rogers, representing the Canadian Composing Co., of Montreal,  makers of a typesetting machine designed specially for the smaller news  papers, was a caller on the Pioneer last  Saturday.  Rev. Samuel Lundie, with his sister,  Miss Lundie, returned yesterday from  a month's vacation, which was spent in  and around Vancouver. He will  occupy" the Presbyterian pulpit" tth  morrow evening, as usual.  Edgar VV. Fox and bride came in  from Spokane Sunday, having been to  Seattle and Tacoma on a wedding trip.  At present they are at the Hotel Balmoral, but will later keep house at the  Snowshoe mine, where Mr. Fox is  office man.  M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer for the Dominion Copper Co.,  spent three days in the Boundary this  week. He had just arrived from  Nevada, where the mercury stood 11 o  in the shade, and left Wednesday for  New York and Cobalt, in which latter  camp Samuel Newhouse also has ex  tensive interests, including the Nipis  sing mine.  110(1 MEN WORK  IN PHOENIX  Mines   are   Hives  Industry.  of  And Yet Room For Some Good  Miners.  Men have been arriving at the mines  of the Boundary steadily for the last  month by nearly every train. As a  result the mines have now, collectively,  larger forces than at any previous time  in the history of this camp. There is  yet room, however, for good miners.  It may not be generally known, but it  is a fact that there are more than 1,000  men employed in this camp, all but  some 150 of which are working in or  around the large producing mines.  That 150 are in the employ of C.P R.  and Great Northern railway contractors,  who are building long spurs to facilitate  ore shipments from the Granby and  Rawhide mines.       .  There are, of course, constant  changes in the mine forces., the total  varying from time to time, but the  following table will give the approximate details:  Granby mines   Dominion Copper Co  Snowshoe   ...   ...   ..-'.

Moreen Secretary a Visitor.  Last Saturday Mrs. I.   M.   Parsons,  of Minneapolis, secretary of the   Alliance Gold and  Copper  Mining Co.,  who are operating the Moreen mine in  Deadwood   camp, ��� was   a   visitor   in ���  Phoenix  and  the  Boundary,  accompanied, by   H.   H.   Shallenberger,  oL  Spokane, manager of the company.   It  was Mrs. Parsons'first visit to Phoenix,  and she took a  look at  the Granby  mines, then  also   visiting the  Greenwood smelter and her own company's  property on the other side   of Greenwood.  Development is being undertaken  on the Moreen on a more extensive  scale than hitherto, the recently installed electric hoist greatly facilitating  mining operations. It is the intention  of the company to keep right on with  development and place the Moreen in  the shipping list as soon as possible.  Mrs. Parsons was not a little pleased  at the extensive mining operations  carried on in the Boundary, and this  will not be her last visit.  PWa&ata&f&Ha&m&ja&a^^ .

McBride'* Notable Victory.
Premier McBride   has achieved  a
notable victory in   England   with   the
Colonial Secretary, who announces his
intention of bringing in an amendment
to the British North American Act readjusting the provincial subsidies. The
new scale laid  down  for British  Columbia at the conference of Premiers
in Ottawa contained the words "final"
and "unalterable," which the Imperial
House says is contrary to the  spirit of
the British constitution.    Premier McBride now has a chance  to  open   the
question at Ottawa with some show of
success,, since  in   the   last   provincial
'elections the question of better   terms
was made one of the  principal   issues
and contributed largely to  the  result,
thus proving to the Ottawa government
that this province was'behind the* ."premier in his stand.
Press dispatches say that Premier
McBride made an excellent impression
in London and presented his case convincingly. The premier's threat to
carry his case to the foot of the throne
appears to be neither idle or futile in
its execution —B. C. Saturday Sunset

Phoenix still enjoys a two-day mail
service with Greenwood, with the
towns but five miles apart and connected by rail. Honorable Rodolphe
Lemieux, postmaster-general, DrR. M.
Coulter, • his first assistant, Duncan
Ross, M.P., and the various inspectors
complacently look on and seemingly
approve of this backwoods condition
of affairs. Some day there'll be a
change.
;If the C. P. R. does not look after
its ore traffic in the Boundary in better
shape,    by    providing   sufficient   ore
dumps for the tonnage offering, it will
encourage the Great Northern to do
some more railway construction in this
section.    One would think lhat, with
the experience it has had in  this line
in this section, Sir Thomas Shaugh-
nessy's   company   would   take   extra
pains to conserve the traffic that it now
has in the Boundary.
Mark Train has been hobnobbing
with royalty in England, and he and
King Edward, according to reports,
were quite chummy. It is no small
tribute to Samuel L. Clemens—his
real name—that Mark's remarks at
court were thought enough of to have
them reported by the Associated Press
throughout the world. And he is the
same old Mark, that has delighted
thousands with his dry ideas for the
last quarter of a century.
Those   hidebound
Is a General Election Imminent?
The idea is becoming more prevalent
everyday, that a general  election  for
the Dominion House is imminent, and
will in all probability, take place during
the coming autumn, says the Hedley
Gazette.    Calvert, the   Libera?   whip,
sought to disabuse the public mind of
that impression by stating that Laurier
was pledged-to another session  before
dissolution, but in Ontario the Liberals
themselves apparently do not  believe
him for they are  putting   their  candidates in the field.    What is Yale-Cariboo going to do about  the  date of
election? Do  they propose submitting
tamely to the- dishonorable  treatment
given them three years ago,   when  it
was deferred to a later date,  and  the
flimsiest kind of reason given   for doing so.    The only excuse offered for it
was that  the  district   was   large  and
sparsely populated  and   it  would   be
impossible   to' get    the   ballot-boxes
around.    That: excuse   would   apply
twenty.years ago but not   three   years
ago, for in 1896 the Conservatives did
not defer it, but held the election   on
the same date,  and   the constituency
was then twice as  large,   with   more
limited means of travel.
Do Not Neglect ihe Children.
At this season of the year the first
unnatural looseness of a child's bowels
should have immediate attention. The
best thing that can be given is Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea

That Counts
THE
partisans who
think that Premier Richard McBride,
of British Columbia, did not accomplish anything by his trip to London to
lay the position of this province, as regards better terms from the Dominion,
before the powers that be, have another
think coming. Fair critics of all shades
of political belief cannot but acknowledge that oiir premier made the cause
of this province much stronger by his
Every Man His Own Doctor.
The average man cannot  afford to
employ a physician for every slight ailment or injury that  may occur in his
family, nor can  he afford   to neglect
them, as  so slight  an  injury as the
scratch of a pin  has  been   known to
cause the loss of a limb.   Hence every
man must from necessity  be his own
doctor for tin's class of ailments.    Success often depends upon prompt treatment, which can only   be   had  when
suitable medicines are kept* at hand.
Chamberlain's Remedies have been in
the market for many years  and   enjoy
a good reputation.

A creditable iob of printing on the stationery you use,
is like a good suit of clothes when one is doing business
—first impressions  count.
If you use a rubber stamp on your letter heads or envelopes, you will be put down as of the rubber stamp
calibre. If you are a busiuess man, and use no printed
stationery, it is natural to suppose that your business is
not of sufficient importance to require it, and your credit
likewise.
If you wish Modern Stationery, gotten up by competent
workmen, worked ou the best of stock, imported or
domestic—stationery that does not have the earmarks of
the Cheap John priutery, we can furnish it from the only
print shop in the Boundary operated by electricity.
We know that business men of Phoenix have sent to
Spokane,  Chicago,  Detroit, Hamilton, St. Louis, Omaha
and other places,   in   the  past, for  printing that could
have  been done   right   here — and   probably  in   better
style.      We'd charge a little more, of course,  just as the

C. Saturday   Sunset, published  at Vancouver, and it is difficult to find  any hut words of praise for this weekly.  It lias sixteen six column  pages, freely  illustrated and filled with   matter  that  should   make it   popular  all over the  province.    Richard S. Ford and John  |��. McDonnell are the men behind the  business and   editorial   ends, respectively, and they  know- their  business.  It has a most liberal patronage, and if  it can  keep   up  the  pace, will   be a  valuable and profitable addition to the  fourth estate in British Columbia.  ���"  Duncan   Ross, of Greenwood,  the  hard working   M.P. for   Vale-Cariboo,  edited his own paper, the Times, last  week,  and, as   usual, when   be   really  makes the effort, it was all   right.    VV.  (',. Giumcc, who has been  making the  Times  a   readable   paper   for  several  months, has been down to Seattle, on  a visit to his family.  A so-called "All Canada" lacrosse  team is en route to Australia to pull off  a series of matches in the antipodes.  At Regina they made a poor showing,  al New Westminster they were beaten  by a score of 17 to nothing, and at  Vancouver they came out second best.  And yet the manager did not think there  are any players in Brittish Columbia  fast enough for the team. No wonder  trc; coast papers have been poking  several kinds of lun at the tourists from  Orillia, who would perhaps do very  well in the cent belt.  When Sickness Comes to the  Little Ones  It Is the Mother Who Chiefly  Suffers.  Pe-ru-na Should  Be Kept  Every Household  Where There Are Little  Children.  i  3  j  1  ���f  Eastern  papers   are   bubbling   over  with news of Cobalt camp, and eastern  investors are tumbling over themselves  still to get some   of  the  good   things  there.     Incidentally,     thousands    of  easterners are   being   taken   in by the  wildcatters in the large eastern centres.  Most mining camps that   make  good,  seem to have this affliction, and those  who can least afford it are the losers���  the small speculators.    In the days of  of Rossland's boom���and  it  was the  real thing, too���many of these same  brokers from   Montreal, Toronto, etc.,  pursued the festive feline on his native  heath around the  Golden   City.    Of  course, the day of reckoning came, and  the brokers knew enough to get from  under, leaving the reams of- worthless  shares in the hands of the  confiding  investors   from   Winnipeg  to Halifax.  And   yet,   Rossland   mines  were   no  more responsible for the loss than they  are today for  Cobalt   losses   that   will  surely come with the same kind of exploitation.  Rossland and the Boundary are  making good with steady dividends,  but are scarcely ever heard of in the  east, perhaps, because they are not  being boomed by every Tom, Dick  and Harry who can raise the price of  a shingle as a mining broker. Millions  will be lost in Cobalt and similar  camps, because it is the fashion to  chase Dame Fortune to that section  now. But most of the chasers have  no idea of what they are getting or  where they are really going. They  will awaken some day, however, and it  will be a rude awakening. Such are  the ways of the slick eastern pro-  motor who does not know what a conscience is. The widow's mite looks  as good to him as the millionaire's  check.  Porunashould bo kept In.tho houso all  the time. Don't watt until the child is  sick, then send jto a drug Btoro. .But,  have Poruna on hand���accept no substitute.  Children aro especially liable to acute  catarrh. Indoed, most of tho affections  of childhood aro catarrh.  All   forms   of   sore   throat,   quinsy,  croup, hoarseness, laryngitis, etc., aro  but different phases of catarrh.  Pe-ru-na Contaiis No Narcotics.  Ono reason why Poruna has found permanent use in so many homes is that it  contains no narcotic of any kind.  Peruna, if taken according to printed  directions, is perfectly harmless. It can  bo used any Jenglli of iimo without  acquiring a drug habit. It does not  produce temporary results, but it i= permanent in its effect.  It has no bad elfect i/pon tlie system,  and gradually eliminates catarrh by rc-  ciovinjj the cause of catarrh.  �����-���"��->"�������� .... . s . % t ��-s >.��ts>s   isastntssst ���������������<��������<  Mrs. P. Brockman, 818 Meade street, Apploton, Wis., writes:  "I have never bad a return of the catarrh, which bad made me so miserable and unliappy before I began taking Peruna.  "1 would not be without It in the house, now.  "I have a baby boy, two years old, to whom 1 give Peruna for a cold,  and my husband also takes Peruna.  "I thank you and wish you well."���Mn. P. Brockman.  �� ������� ��-��������  ��-���  .  . m  ��� ������>�����  s s s ���  No Doctor Required.  Mr. Edward Otto, 927 Do Soto street,  St. Paul, Minn., writes:  "1 cannot say enough for Peruna. It  has done great work in my family, especially for my oldest boy. We had  doctored with three or four different  doctors and thoy did not seem to do him  any good.  "We gave up hopes of cure, and so  did thoy, but we pulled him through on  Poruna.  "We had several doctors and tbey  said they could do no more tor him, so  we tried Peruna as a last resort, and  that did the work. Since then we  keep it In the house all the time, and  no doctor is required. "���Edward Otto.  There aro a multitudo of homes whore  J'oruna has boon used off and on for  twonty years.  Such a thing could not bo possible if  Poruna contained any uurcotics.  ���  > > �����..............  The Benefit Which  the Children of  the United States Have Received  From Pe-ru-na Can Never Be  Pat Into Worda.  The chronic ailments 'it has prerented,  tho suffering it has mitigated, will never  bo fully recorded. '���''  . Bat at least this much can be said that  the coming generation owes a great  debt to Pernna, for it is in the tender  years of youth that sllghtailments are  liable to develop into'lasting disease,  thus blasting the whole career of the  individual.  The mothers who are bringing up  their children to-day to believe in Peruna are speaking from, thoir. experience.  These children.brought up to believe  in Peruna from the, start, will, when  they become heads of families themselves, use Peruna with unquestioning  faith.  A Child's Life Saved.  Mr. G. H. Parmor, Now Martinsville,  W. Va., writes:  "Our.little son, Harry, is well and  healthy now and we think if we do as  you directed us, he will keep his health  and grow strong.  "We know that our little son's life  was sa vedby your wonderful medicine,  Peruna, and we shall always praise  Peruna and use It In our family when  needed.  "Should we have any more catarrhal  trouble in our family, we shall always  write to you for treatment."  ���G. H. Parmer.  Medical Advice.  For free medical advice, address Dr.  S. B. Hartman, President of the Hart-  man Sanitarium, Columbus, Ohio.  All correspondence held strictly confidential.  Mrs. J, O. Sterling, 183 Brown  Avenue, Norfolk, Va., wrltos:  "My littlo boy, Meredith, suffered with indigestion ho badly ho  could not oat anything without it  making him very sick, so I  thought (as many others have)  that I would try Peruna, and It  worked like a charm.  "Now be eats anything be  wishes, and I would not be without it for anything.  "My other little boy, Alfred,  two and a half years old, has  taken it and received as much  benefit from Peruna as bis  brother.  "/ hope my  testimonial may  be of some benefit to others, as I feet  as though I cannot praise It enough."  ���Mrs. J. C. Sterling.  Mr  Howard Andrew Sterner, Muddy  Creek, Pa., writes:  "I have Peruna in my house all the  time and won't be without it. It is good  for children when they take a cold or  croup. It cured my baby boy of croup.  "I have introduced Peruna into six  families since I received your last letter,  and four hav�� seen relief already."  ���Howard Andrew Sterner.  Pe-ru-na Protects the Entire  Household.  As soon as   the value of   Peruna is  appreciated by every household, both as  a preventive and cure, tens of thousands  She suffers even more than the child  who happens to bo sick.  Her sympathy is deeper than that of  any other member of the family.  The mother looks forward with dread  to the torrid heat of summer, thinking  of her children and the many liabilities to disease that are before them. ,_..  Spring and summer are sure to bring  ailments,  especially  among   the "little  folks. ���;���'������'.���;  It does not take a mother very long to  discover that Peruna is the best friend  she has in time of illness among the  children.  A Multitude of Mothers  Have discovered that Poruna is their  stand-by, and that in manyoi the all*  merits of spring and summer towhloh  tho children are subjected, Peruna ie  tho remedy that will generally qulckl*  relievo. ;    ���'  Whethor It Is spring fever or stomach'  deraugomout, whether it Is indigestion  or bowel disease, a catarrhal congestion  of tho mucous surfaces ia the cause.  Porrtna quickly roUeves this condition  of tho mucous membranes. Its operation is prompt, the children do not dla-  Uko to take the medicine, it haa no deleterious effoots in any part of tho body.  It simply removes the cause of the  disagreeable symptoms and restores the  health.  Every mother who has not tried  Peruna in her family should familiarize  hersolf with Dr. Hartman's booklet,  The Ills of Life. This booklet should  be in every family. It gives most vat;  uable advice as to the use of Peruna for.:  the various catarrhal diseases so general,  to-day.  Peruna is a household remedy for all  catarrhal ailments of winter and summer, acute or chronic.  The mothers all over the United State*  are the best friends that Peruna has.  The Mothers Hold Pe-ru-na in Eigh  Esteem,  Not only because it has cured them of  their various ailments, but- because J.t  promptly rescues the children front the  throes and grasp of catarrhal diseases.  We have in our files many testimonials from mothers whose children have  been cured by Peruna. However, the  large majority of mothers who use  Peruna, we never hear from.  But we do hear from a great number  of mothers who are so overjoyed at some  special good they have received from  Peruna that they cannot restrain their  of lives will be saved, and hundreds of  thousands of chronic, lingering cases of I enthusiasm.   They are anxious to share  catarrh will be prevented. 1 these benefits with other mothers.

An exchange tells about a hale and  hearty individual, who confessed to  being some 70 summers and winters  young, who had been responsible for  tlie starting of some fifty odd publica-  lions of various styles and kinds, and  had retired to enjoy his old age. This  reminds one of Henry S. Turner,  recently of the staff of the Pioneer,  born and brought up in Shcrbrooke,  Quebec, Mr. Turner has roamed  all over the United States and Canada,  and even went through the San Francisco earthquake with a whole skin.  Incidentally, among the many newspapers Mr. Turner has been connected  with in the Boundary, he has ground  out copy for the Cascade Record, long  since defunct, the Grand Forks News,  ditto, the Grand Forks Sun, the Grand  Forks Gazette, the Greenwood Times,  and others.
