Canmore totals are not given, but  that camp had a majority of 16 in  favor of the agreement.  Notices were placed reading as  follows:  "To the Officers and Members of  the United Mine Workers' Association of America, District No. 18:  "The result of the voting upon  the new agreement is as follows:  For 1124; against 747; majority  337-  "The agreement has been duly  signed today, and all members of  our unions are requested to end  their vacation and resume work at  all mines immediately.  (Sgd.)"   "F. H. SHERMAN,  "Pres. District 18, U. M. W. of A.  Sllaalieo la tbe Boundary.  There is no change i 11 the situation  in the Boundary. Nothing was done  at the conference held in Phoenix last  week Friday, between the local operators and miners unions, regarding the  asked for increase of 50 cents per day  in wages. The meeting" adjourned to  meet again in two weeks���which  means some time next week, if all goes  well. In the meantime the managers  will consult with their principals as to  what can be done, and most of the  mines in the Boundary are idle for the  time being.  It is the belief that a common  ground for agreement can be and will  be found, now that the coke situation  is beginning to clear up, and that,  while it may be a little time yet before  smelters can resume, when they do,  the wage question will have been  definitely agreed on for the future.  The agreement referred to, which  readjusts wages and schedules, and  gives an advance of 5 per cent generally, is signed by the following:  The Western Coal Operators' association, G. G. S. Lindsey, president;  Lewis Stockett, vice-president; W. F.  Little, secretary. The Pacific Coal  Co., Ltd., H. W. McNeill, general  manager. The Breckenridge-Lund  Coal Co., Ltd., J. Breckenridge, manager.    The West Canadian  Colleries,  r   Ltd., O. E. S. Wbitesides, uener/il  manager. The' International Cole &  Coke Go., fctd., H. N. Galer, vice-  president. The (Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co., Ltd.^Gj G. S. Lindsey,  general manager. ?"he United Mine  Workers of America, District 18, F. H.  Sherman, president#John Galvin, vice-  president; A. McDonald, secretary; P.  Patterson, international board member.  The agreement is dated May 4.  The coal strike'is thus a thing of  the past, and men aire resuming work  at the several colleries. It will, however, be two or three or more weeks  before coke beginsXto arrive at the  smelters at the regular rate, as many  men have scattered,��^nd the railways  must be supplied first.  SOME 250 MEN  ON RAILWAYS  Now    Employed  This Camp*  In  Both C.P.R. and Great Northern Hard at It.  START WORK  ON SUDBURY  Electric Hoist Ordered  For Mine.  President   Shiewe    Tells   of  Company's Plans.  Saturday evening two of the officials  of the newly formed ^Sudbury Mining  Co., arrived in Phoenix, from Spokane,  for the purpose of starting active development work on the property of  the company, which, is located in  Deadwood camp. :��� j.James Schiewe,  the president of the company, was in  the party, teams being taken the next  morning to visit the property.  On the return Mr. Schiewe informed  the Pioneer man that.work was being  started at once on the mine, and that  a contract had been made with E. G.  Warren, of the Greenwood City Waterworks Co., for a 20-h,p. electric hoist,  which it was expected could be delivered in 30 days, and that the same  company would furnish the electric  current for the operation of the hoist.  Mr. Graham has been placed in charge  at the mine, and the work of building  the electric feed line is being started  without delay. This 5cnetrwin-run-fxom  the Elkhorn mine, now operated by  electricity, it being but a short distance over the hill Irom the Elkhorn to  the Sudbury.  The Sudbury, located but two claims  from the Sunset mine of the Dominion  Copper Co., has a promising showing  of copper ore, and the new company  proposes to go right after it, and find  out what it amounts to. There is a  60-foot shaft on the property, and also  an incline shaft, the electric hoist to be  installed at the latter, and development  will follow along the lead. The  Mother Lode spur of the C. P. R.  runs within three hundred yards of the  Sudbury, Mr. Schiewe states, and the  grading is easy, so that it will be a  simple matter to run a sidetrack right  up to the Sudbury ore dump when  development is sufficiently advanced.  Although little is doing at the large  copper mines in this camp, directly  due to the lack of coke at two of the  district smelters���the Granby and  Dominion���the improvements undertaken by the C.P.R. and Gri^at Northern, in the shape of more extensive  trackage facilities for the local mines,  are being steadily pushed, and something like 250 men are engaged in this  work.  T. J. Gallagher has upwards of 100  men employed in the heavy rock work  necessary in the construction of the  new Great Northern spur, a mile and  a half in length, to connect with the  new Victoria shaft headworks of the  Granby Consolidated, and . with the  snow all gone, no time is being lost in  crowding the contract. Mr. Gallagher  should have his contract pretty well  completed by the end of Juiy.  W. P. Tierney has the contract for  the C. P. R.'s extensive sidetrack facili  ties for the Dominion Copper Co.'s  Rawhide mine, some 4,000 feet long'  adjoining the Sno wshoe and Gold  Drop mines on the east side of Phoenix camp. Mr. Tierney, who also  began work before the snow was entirely gone, has over a hundred men  on his payroll here, and is making  every effort to push things along and  get the work completed at the earliest  possible date. He has, like Mr. Gallagher on the west side of the camp,  considerable heavy rock work, and his  able bodied Italians are making it. fly.  Four months more should see his  contract well on towards completion  and the steel laid, as well, by the C.  P. R. extra gang.  The C. P. R: spur to the ne\v"Vic-;  toria shaft of the Granby Co. has been  completed and the steel put down,  though the ballasting is yet to be done.  .'.������';-.'T-w.o.SVeddlDS*..this Week. {���"  Last'Tuesday }.: .Qliver Blair, manager for W-.

To the British Columbia Copper Co.  belongs the distinction of being able  to operate its smelter and mines for  two weeks while all the other large  copper producers in the Boundary are  idle for lack of coke. Two furnaces  have been operated steadily up to the  present, getting excellent results, but  from the coke outlook . it is absolutely  certain that Manager McAllister must  order the plant blown out very shortly.  For two weeks one of the furnaces  has been "fed by 'hand shovelling from  the coke stock pile, which is a slow  and expensive process and would not  be undertaken if but one furnace was  m commission, it not being economical smelter practice.  Little or no coke has been coming  in. of late to this smelter, and the stock  pile is being rapidly depleted, it being  but a question of days till the B. C.  Copper Co.'s smelter and Mother Lode  mine join-the 'other temporarily idle  concerns of the Boundary. It was  hoped the coal miners' strike���settled  this week���would terminate in time  so that this smelter could tide over till  fresh coke supplies began to arrive.  But this may take three weeks, more  or less.  This week the wires of the Cascade  Water,  Power & Light Co., the pioneer    hydro-electric    concern   ot    ihe  Boundary,   were   connected  up with  those of the South   Kootenay  I'nwer  Co.,in Phoenix, this event marking the  absorption of the former concern by the  West Kootenay Power and Light Co.,  the parent concern of the South Kootenay Power Co.    This  will give hut  one power company   operating   in the  Boundary, and a strong one, that- can  furnish   all   the cheap   mining   and  smelting power needed in this section  for many years to come, no matter to  what extent the industry may expand.  In 1897 a charter was  obtained  by  Ti'j. Jones, D. E.   Campbell  and G.  H. Haynes, of Victoria, to use 150,000  miners'  inches  of water, to be taken  from Kettle river,' to sell power within  a radius of 40 miles of Cascade.   This  charter was sold to the Dominion Mining,   Agency   and   Development. Co.,  and by this company to the London &  B.   C.   Goldfields,   Ltd., the  Cascade  Water, Power and   Light   Co.   having  been meanwhile   formed   to   carry on  the   business.    The   London   people  finished up the power plant, which was  started   in    1898,   and   spent   about  $500,000 in the work, including high-  tension   transmission   lines  lo  Grand  Forks, Phoenix and Greenwood.  In the winter of 1905, however,  power was short during the low water  season, and the mines of the Boundary were much hampered. In consequence, the West Kootenay Power  & Light Co., securing contracts from  Boundary mines and smelters, started  building a line some 70 or 80 miles  across the mountains from its plant at  Bonninglon Falls on Kootenay river.  But it was found that it did not have  legal right to sell power in the Boundary because of the Cascade company's  exclusive charter. Something like  $256,000 was offered, and $500,000  asked for the Cascade plant and lines.  Eventually the parties got together, as  announced, and it is now all one concern���the lamb has laid down inside  the lion.  The sale ivas authorized at an extraordinary general meeling of ihe  Cascade shareholders, held April 30th,  and has now been carried into eilect.  Every large mine and smelter in the  Boundary will now be served by the  West Kootenay concern at a cost per  horse power said to be less than $40  per annum.  2 BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS.  NAME OF COMPANY.  at  More rich ore is going out of that  free-gold producer, the Bay mine.  This time it is to be two cars.  The work of installing the electric  pump at the Brooklyn mine of the  Dominion Copper Co. was about completed this week.  A number of cars of coke, that have  been en ioute some time from the collieries, have been straggling around to  the Granby smelter this week.  The new electric air compressor,  ordered by the Dominion Copper Co.  for the Sunset mine, Deadwood camp,  arrived in the Boundary this week.  The story is going the rounds, as  yet, without official confirmation, that  an amalgamation is being arranged by  the Waterloo and Fontenoy owners, in  Camp McKinney, and that the Waterloo is to start the mill before long.  Evidently things are looking up in old  McKinney.  Yesterday was the regular monthly  payday in this camp for April, but it  did not amount to much, as most of  the men who were laid off last week  drew their time at that time���incidentally making the force at the Eastern  Townships Bank here work 15 or 20  hours per day for several days, no  warning having been given. It also  made the bank manager do some hustling on short notice to secure a supply  of ready cash.  It is expected that the stamps at the  Cariboo mill, camp McKinney, will  be dropping before the end of this  month.  On account of inability to ship ore  already hoisted, the force at the Skylark mine has been reduced to three  men for the time being.  Knight & Stone have sent two crews  of diamond drill men to the Nickel  Plate mine, Camp Hedley, where the  firm has a contract for a lot of holes.  Page Boyles has been doing diamond drilling in the Boundary for two  and a half years, most of the time for  thc Granby Co. Just now the only  work he has on hand is at the Elkhorn  mine.  One lonely drill was in operation at  the Granby mines this week, that on  the 200-foot contract of Dan Matheson, R. D. Mitchell and partners on  the long Curlew tunnel.  If reports are correct, a deal has  been made for the Carmt mine, up the  West Fork, with a newly formed English company, the mine and mill to be  restarted at no distant date. E. H  Thruston, owner, is supposed to have  engineered the transfer.  During the month of April the two  furnaces of the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter made an average of treating  662.7 tons each per every 24 hours,  the month's total being a new record  for this smelter���34,239 tons of ore.  Besides this, 212 tons of matte were  smelted.  The C.P.R. has managed to get all  the coal necessary thus far to move  the little traffic necessary into and out  of the Boundary.  It is understood that the apprupri-  tion of the C. P. R. for the extensive  Rawhide mine spur improvements,  now going on, was $120,000.  Work was started this week on relaying the -steel on the C. P. R. Phoenix branch. The 56-pound steel is  beiug replaced by 78-pound rails.  This week the Great Northern has  been running practically nothing but  passenger trains into Phoenix, and the  C.P.R. did just about  the same thing  It is almost time for the announcement of the usual summer schedule on  the C. P. R., when it will likely take  two days to travel between Greenwood  and Phoenix by rail, either way.  The Kettle Valley Line railway  track is now laid ihrough Grand Forks  and as soon as the road bed is completed, which will be in a few days'  time, the regular passenger trains will  run into the city.  News of the washing of the coach  used on the C. P. R. White Win^s  Limited, between Phoenix and Eholt,  is understood to have reached the car  accountant's office at Winnipeg, and to  have created a profound impression  there.  Among the enterprises assisted by  subsidies at the recent session of the  Dominion parliament was the inuch-  talked of Midway S: Vernon railway,  which got a plum to the tune of  $3,200 per mile for the 150 miles  between Midway and Vernon. Those  who should know, assert that tins  means to a certainty the resumption  of construction operations���whenever  that may happen. The subsidy referred  to.is practically a renewal of  sidy previously granted.  Cariboo-McKlnney���gold   Granby Consolidated���copper.

M  Stomach Troubles.  s. Sue ���Martin, an old and ���highly  is ihe method to be adopted: Moisten  with either salt water or salt water in  which oxalic acid has been dissolved, a  mixture containing one part coal and  three parts ashes, and a better fuel than  pure coal is obtained. The ashes of  anthracite coal burn as readily as do  ihose of bituminous coal. This mixture will, upon being placed upon a  burning fire, fuse into a coke-like mass  and deposit little residue. The salt  water may be obtained by the dissolu-  lion of common salt in water.  Has Stood the Test  The approval of the public is the final  test of merit.

The poet has thoughtfully informed  us that man is a gregarious 'animal,  that he loves company, wrierever he  may be. The same singer" 'of songs  might have said with equal * truth that  man, or a large proportion of him,  loves to roam." He is looking'for jnew  pastures, or greener fields, if you prefer. He wants something different,  perhaps, even though it is Veasonabl)  certain that it will be no better pasturage than that which he is leaving  behind.  Within the last ten days scores of  men employed in the minegof Phoenix;  have taken advantage of tne temporary  lay-off here, occasioned   by *'  coke can be! Secured, drid the mines  can be once more opened up in full  blast.  "A"   conference   was   held   by   the  parties   interested   last  week  Friday,  but nothing definite is given out regarding what was "doneaT that time, other  than that another  meeting would be  held some time  next  week.    At the  conference" the  three  miners' unions  were represented���Grand Forks,Green-  Wood and Phoenix���and all  the large  companies  operating  in   this section  were" also represented.  '   .trV tKe last few years the cost of  living has increased from 10 to 25 per  cent in the Boundary���so the average  merchant will tell  you  himself.    His  goods  cost, him more,  and  he must  chaVge more for them, arid  he doe's.  Therefore, it is reasonably certain that  the men will resume work  at  an   increased.: scale  of wages, a scale  that  will; if agreed  on  as  asked, average  about 14 per  cent   higher ail  round.  ft is asserted that'this means not more  than one-half cent per  pound   in   the  increased cost of producing copper in  this district.    While we cannot speak  Officially for either side, tKere is every  reason    to   believe   that   a   common  ground for. agreement can be found, as  it has always been   found in the past  in the Boundary, and that  the interruption to shipping Ore and producing  copper will lastntJlonp.er thanis unavoid  able by the non-receipt of coke at the  district smelters.  The Greenwood Times sententiously  remarks that "Lawyers are all right on  a bill of costs, but they are failures as  managers of coal mines." This should  be interesting reading to G.G S. Lindsay, manager of the Crow's Nest Coal  Co., Ltd.  One has often heard that Dame Fortune is a fickle damsel, and  the  proof  comes not infrequently.    For instance,  the   La'rder  Lake   country, 90   miles  north of the much boomed Cobalt district, in New Ontario,- is now receiving  a lot  of' attention,   due  to new   discoveries such as 25   lb. gold  nuggets,  etc.    In fact, some 3,000  claims  are  reported to have been staked there already, in a  short   time���and  no   one  knows how many more since  the   report was published.    Yet today  there  are men in Phoenix who, a  year  ago,  camped for  weeks   on  the  shores  of  Larder Lake, and found nothing worth  while at that time.   If they had staked  a few prospects then, the  chances  are  they   couid  have  sold  them   several  times over before this.  TRUTHFUL  JAMES MINING COMPANV.  Good Sample of Ihe Genuine Wildcat's Simple  Prospectus.  A recent issue of the Canadian Mining Journal, of Toronto, prints what it  facetiously styles   the   "Prospectus of  the Truthful James Mining Company."

Early this tveek the good news came  that'the troubles between the operators  arid coal miners in the Crow's Nest  Pass coal fields, had been amicably  settled and that the men had endorsed  the settlerVieirit'of tHeir representatives  by a referendum vote. All of wh'ch  was received with a good deal of satis-  the cok�� faction by the miners, metalliferous  shortige  at  the  district  smelters, to* operators and business interests of the  Which reminds   us   of an  incident  that occurred when we reached Slocan  City in   the  summer   of   1897.    The  previous winter the Slocan   had   been  having a  veritable   boom,   which,   for  that matter, was still on at   that   time.  Anything in the line of, a. mineral   lo-  cation.could be sold readily  at  prices  that were satisfactory to the prospector  and newcomers were biting as   fast   as  the bait  could   be  set   before  them.  "Why," said  one   prospector   to   the  writer; "see that piece of rock  there,"  pointing to a  piece  of good   looking  galena; "I sold five  claims  from   that  one piece of rock."   And.there was no  reason to doubt his word, either.  turn their faces to other p^rts.    Som��  have gone  lo   their   old ^ homes   in  eastern Canada or the  United' States,  homes that mayhap they had not seen-  for years; some have gone  even beyond the seas   to visit the old folks  once more; some have merely gone on  hunting   and  fishing   trips;   and   yet  others have left the Boundary, with the  intention 0/ not returning.    They have  heard of Cobalt, or Goldfield, or some  other equally much-printed-about mining  region,  and   they   will   try  their  fortune* in the new fields.    In short,  they have a touch of the wanderlust,  and wish to get out of the rut of the  Boundary, district generally.   The settlement is for a term of two years, and;  although we know,by experience, that  |at least some coal   miners and some  coal operators seem to be going around  with chips on  their shoulders, as it  were, it is devoutly to be hoped that  this time all differences have Jieen at  last amicably adjusted, and that peace  will reign in the coal diggings for the  stipulated period of at least 24 months.  It does seem, too, that this could  have been accomplished without the  men stopping work for several weeks,  thereby working hardship in the metal  mining field, that is so dependent on  The   good   people   of Greenwood  have reason to fell pretty well satis tied  with the way things are  going  around  there; for, they have the  only  smelter  in the Boundary that   is  operating  at  present���if it is not blown out   before  these lines are in print.    It  is  to   be  hoped that the B. C. Copper  Co.'s reduction'works can be   kept  going  till  the coke  supply can   be  replenis herd  oncefmore.    That company, seems   to  have had its full share of troubles  and  delays in getting its new plant  in   full  and complete" running  order,   and  an  accomplishment of the kind referred to  would certainly be a great credit to the  management.  directors have._also paid $5 to the  mining expert for his report, and have  promised to priflt^ooc copies 'of,'the  prospectus as .an;, advertisement for  him.  No veins have as yet been discovered on the property, but one fine  wall has been found to which a small  stringer of smaltite was attached, which  one mining expert pronounced calcite,  and which, he .said, would undoubtedly lead to rich silver values at depth.  The property is only 6,559 ft. 3^ in.  from the Woolly Wonder mine, whose  vein our expert.has traced over on our  property. :i  The company has spared no expense  in securing the services of Mr. Lies-  well, the mining expert, who graduated  with honors at Fakerburg in 1837, and  who has had ;i 102 ' years and three  months' experience in this branch of  mining.  We quote the following from our  expert's, report: "The country rockis  a greenish gray.calcereous peroxidite,  heavily mineralized with hornaceous,  schmisatic magaphone granite, and is  cut by violent intrusions of pink fels-  napthic andorite, with rhyolusic inclusions. This gives an abundance of  contacts in the property, which will increase in value as they go down Only  one contact is still lacking, and your  directors must arrange for that." ���'  ',  In conclusion our expert states:  "This is undoubtedly the finast property I have seen in the camp."  We want it clearly understood that  we are not responsible for any statements made by.our expert; also that  none of the directors are putting any  of their inoney'into the enterprise, but  are relying on the public's money  entirely to make.it a success.

Every  new trolley project, and there are  dozens of them in each state, means  the probable use of tons of copper.  The ���' Kings " ol  the Industry.  The average man knows more of  "coppers," that is, the stocks of the  producing companies, than he does of  the metal, its uses, or the methods of  mining and refining it. Amalgamated  Copper and H. H. Rogers are names  familiar to every reader of newspapers  and magazines, but the character ol  this $155,000,000 concern; the location  oi its claims; the scope of its very-  wonderful charter���as elastic as the  marvelous one drawn for the Bay  State Gas company���and the relation  it bears to the trade, are matters of  limited knowledge.  The fact that the leading captains of  industry did not themselves appreciate  the commercial value of copper until  late in the last century shows how experimental electricity was then and  how little importance was attached to  the world monopoly that the United  States has of the copper metal. Such  strong men as Alexander Agassiz, A.  S. Bun-age, A. C. Bigelow and the  Higginsons, Shaws, and Hunnewells of  Boston, with the Dodges and Stantons  of New York, had been prominent in  Lake Superior for years. They were  giving their energies and capital to  producing as much copper as possible  ���<j c^*o o-*^�� o*^j> c^e^i*  Copper as Trade Barometer.  On the financial side of the copper  question we have to deal with something like 60 producing and dividend-  paying mines in the Lake Superior and  Butte regions, as well as in Arizona,  Nevada, Utah and Mexico, capitalized  at $525,000,000, and with a market  value many times as great. These  mining companies pay stockholders  nearly $40,000,000 annually and have  made a contribution to the wealth of  the country, in dividend disbursements  alone, of about $300,000,000 since  copper first began to attract the American investor.  Unceasing Search for New Deposits.  With the commercial  value  of copper so immense, it will be readily seen  why men go to  such   lengths   to discover the ore.    Mining engineers and  geologists are today examining the surface of the earth for it in every civilized  country on the globe.    There may be  more excitement and romance in the  discovery of gold, and   men  may face  death in more forms to be the first to  reach a new camp, but ihere is equally  as much solid satisfaction among manufacturing interests in  the opening of  a vein of virgin copper.    How careful  the search is for new mineral is shown  by the yearly expenditure by one corporation of $500,000 in its exploration  work  alone.    So far   this   outlay has  yielded nothing.  Seven concerns consume 50 percent  ol the total copper production of the  country.    The largest individual user  of the metal  is   the American  Brass! at the smallest costs and not paying a  company,    which   took    125,000,0001 great deal of attention  to the stock  Their employment  pounds last year,  of it is as a constituent of brass. It is  very widely used in the arts and  sciences. The Western Electric, General Electric and Westinghouse Electric  absorb from 225,000,000 to 250,000,-  000 pounds annually, or 25 per cent of  the total production. The quantity of  telephone wire that they turn out in  a year might be reckoned in hundreds  of thousands of miles. Telephone expansion alone calls for 150,000,000  pounds every   12   months.    There is  market side of the matter. In Montana, Marcus Daly, Senator W. A.  Clark and the Lewisohns were the  prominent figures.  :, As for the demand for copper, it will  increase one hundred fold from gen  eration to generation. Copper will  always be a commodity with a market  in any quarter of the globe. Today  the chief concern of the consumer is  to get the metal, regardless of price.

The association will pay freight  charges on ore samples allowed to remain in the permanent mineral display.  The display will be at the fair grounds  each year, and exhibited in the rooms  of the Spokane chamber of commerce.  It is expected much interest will be  centered in the rock drilling contests,  which are open to all, and that there  will be entries from Washington; Idaho,  Montana, Oregon, Colorado and British Columbia. The purse of $1,250  will be divided as follows: Nine hundred dollars for a double-hand contest,  of which $500 for first prize, $250 for  second and $150 for third. $350 for  single-hand contest, of which $250 for  first and $100 for second. These  rules will govern the contests:  Entries close Sept. 23 at noon; an  entrance fee of $15 per man will be  charged in each contest, and $10 of  this will be returned to each man who  drills. Any one entering and not  drilling will forfeit entire entrance fee.  Time allowed in two hand contests  will be 15 minutes; in single-hand  contests 10 minutes. All tools must  be furnished by contestants, drills for  two-hand contests to caliper j4 inch at  bit and at point 3 inches back of bit;  drills forsingle-hand contest to caliper  % inch at bit. and at pointy inches  back of bit.

One assistant allowed to  each team in two-hand contest and to  each contestant in single-hand contest,  but under no circumstance is the assistant allowed to assist in changing  drills. The association is to furnish  the rock for contest, which will be  granite from quarries near Spokane.  Contests will take place at any time  between Sept. 23 and Sept. 30 at the  option of the fair management, and  will be put on either in day time or  evening.  The fair association will-give a handsome silver trophy cup valued at $100  for the best general display of mineral  exhibited by any one camp or district,  variety, quality and arrangement to be  considered. Another prize is a silver  trophy cup, valued at $25, to each  separate camp or district represented,  which cup will be awarded to the mine  in each camp or district making the  best individual showing, variety, quality  and arrangement to be considered.  No cup will be awarded to any mine  unless it has competition from the district which it represents  The Spokane association will also  award diplomas to any meritorious exhibits not receiving any of the prizes.  There will be a cash prize of $25 for  the handsomest and most unique cabinet display made by any one individual,  and a cash prize of $10 for the best  topographical map of any mineral district or camp.  Relief from Rheumatic Pains.  "I suffered with rheumatism for  over two years," says Mr. Rolland  Curry, a patrolman of Key West,  Fla. "Sometimes it settled in my  knees and lamed me so I could hardly  walk, at other times it would be in my  feet and hands so I was incapaciated  for duty. One night when I was in  severe pain and lame from it my wife  went to the drug store here and came  back with a bottle of Chamberlain's  Pain Balm. I was rubbed with it and  found the pain had nearly gone during  the night. I kept on using it for a  little more than two weeks and found  that it drove the rhematism away. I  have not had any trouble from that  disease for over three months." For  sale by all druggists.  The Ads.

My little girl, Catherine, who is two  years old, has been taking this remedy  whenever she had a cold since she was  two months old. About a month ago  I contracted a dreadful cold myself,  but I took Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy and was soon as well as ever."  This remedy is for sale by all druggists.

Man Who Is Ahead.  In almost every newspaper you pick  up you are pretty sure to find a lot of  gush about the man behind the  counter and the man behind the' gun;  the man behind the buzzsaw and the  man behind the sun; the man behind  the times and tlie man behind his  rents; the man behind^ the plowshares  and the man behind, the fence; the  man behind the whistle and the man  behind the cars; the man behind the  kodak and the man behind the bars;  the man behind his whiskers and the,  man behind his fists; and everything is  entered on the list.  But they've skipped another fellow  of whom nothing has been said���the  fellow who is even, or a little way  ahead; who pays for what he gets,  whose bills are always signed. He's  a blamed sight more important than  the man who is behind. All the edits  ors and merchants, and the whole  commercial clan, are indebted for  existence to this honest fellowman.  He keeps us all in business, and hi-  town is never dead, and so we take off  our hats to the man who is ahead.  ���Judge. "���  Sore Nipples.
