AGREEMENT  IS NOW LIKELY  Though Seal?? is ;Not  Yet Settled,  PaftialTqtoslo^Work'Vcn^g  Satisfactory Outcome.

Other conferences have since  been  held, and in view of the fact that, by  next week, coke will be arriving at the  district smelters in   increasing quantities, the mine managers  have decided  to add a few men to' the  small forces  now employed and prepare the mines i  for steady and extensive shipments, as  in the past���with-, the" understanding,  as with those now employed, that they  shall receive whatever scale is   eventually agreed   upon.    Some  men will, it  is expected, be   added   to   the  forces  today.    Thus, it would   seem  assured  that some basis of agreement will ultimately be reached.  Joseph L.

What would happen if  a bear or two came  along,   the  chronicler sayeth not.'   We notice from exchanges that would-be hunters are  extremely careless with   their aim,  and  bullets frequently whiz by persons who  supposed they were not in a wild  and  woolly country.    But we do  not have  to go away from home to see the  fool  and his gun.    Recently   bullets,   from  some  of   the   hills,   dropped   where  children are wont to play in the   town  of   Phoenix.    If  men  do  not   know  enough not to handle firearms in   this  dangerous way, they should be placed  where they can do no  harm, and  the  city council would do well to take action  in the matter.    It has been found   by  experience that the man   who   looked  down into the .muzzle  of a  gun that  "wasn't   loaded," is the one   who  did  not get a second opportunity.   A word  to the wise should be sufficient.    Otherwise there may be some  funerals   to  record.  Did you ever notice that if weather  conditions were particularly severe elsewhere, generally, all over the country,  by the time the cold wave or hot wave,  or electrical storm or what not, reached  Phoenix, it moderated so that it was  not nearly as objectionable as in other  places and localities. It seems queer,  but it is a simple fact, nevertheless,  and is something which " Phoenicians  can be thankful for.

Postmaster-General Rodolphe Lemieux is credited with the intention of  making a trip through the west this  summer, to see for himself the workings of the postal service. We wish  he would come to Phoenix and be in  a hurry to send a letter from this place  to Greenwood (between which places  one can walk in an hour,) and note  that, two days are required . to send a  letter in /.the ��� ordinary course  .under the present arrangement:. And  the people ofthe Slocan lake country  would like to interview him also, as to  why he gives them only a tri-weekly  service now instead of daily.

Before what was known as the  Miner-'.1 raves people paid so much attention to their Phoenix 'properties,  they worked the California mine at  Rossland quite extensively, in 188S  1900. However, some seven years  [ago work was discontinued at their  Rossland mine, and efforts concen-  [ trated on the Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill mines in Phoenix, Wm, Yulen  Williams having ''charge of all threi  properties. -  Some months since negotiation*-  were started Ibr the consolidation ol  the California and Giant, ler an  adjoining  mine, and   the  details 'l*nv��  now been arranged   by   the   formation  of Ihe Cahlornia-Giant Co.    Last w'eel-  an orginizatioii  meeting   was   held ai  Rossliuid, and the following officers of  the    consolidated    company   elected;  President, J. P. Graves; vice-president.  A.   L.   White;   .secretary,   Charles   II  Wolf; treasurer, G. W.Woosi.t.    Mr.  Williams was appointed superintendent  of   the properties, and   work   is  being  started   at  once.    The  company  has  ample   capital   for   development   purposes,  and   the   mines  are  equipped  with machinery.    A   large  amount of  development has already been done on  both the  properties, and  there seem.**  every chance of their turning into large  and profitable producers.  Mr. White was identified with Mr.  Graves and Mr. Miner in the early  days of the Granby, and was secretary  of the present Granby Co for two or  three years. Mr. Wolf has done no  little'field work for the Granby Go. in  the past, while Mr. Williams is most  favorably known to every old resident  of Phoenix, having resigned as superintendent of the Granby .mines nearly  three years ago, and now making his  headquarters in Spokane, where he has  a consulting engineer's office. Mr.  White is also associated with Mr.  Graves in the latter's Spokane extensive traction enterprises, which have  en so successful.  1. H. HALLfcTT  Barkistick,' Solicitor,  Notary I'm,,, ^.

You will  naturally wish to know the measure ol  authority granted you and what will be  expected of you in your new position.  You   will   have   absolute  authority  over the mine, including the hoist and  blacksmith shop, and all men employed  therein-    You will hire and discharge  all men.     1  expect  to  make frequent  nips through the mine, to take my own  samples and keep in close touch  with  what is going 0117 but I   shall have no  orders for any of the men; so you ma\  know   there   will   be   no   conflict   of  authority.  I want you to get a- force of good  men under you���not the kind that requires constant watching  and  prodd  ing.    You may have noticed  that   the  good thorough bred horse needs but a  word to cause him to walk off with his  load   with   a   quiet   consciousness   ol  power.    If you wish to get  the same  work done by a plug, you must pound  him on the back to get fair service out  of him.    There is just as much difference in men.    Take your time  to get  good ones.    We will stand   by you if  we have-to hang up half the stamps in  the null.    There is a mine just over  the range where they hire every man  who comes along in order to keep tht  mill running.'   One look at  the crowd  is enough.    We don't want that kind.  Vou will be able  to judge a good  many men who apply to you   by  their  appearance and the .answers  they give  to a few leading questions,   'lake time  to satisfy yourself by  inquiry concern  ing any others.    You have nothing to  lo=e by the impressions getting abroad  that you are particular   in   putting on  new men.    Some  men 'hire and  fire'  and there is a steady stream coming in  and   going  out   of  camp.    I   would  rather it would be said of you:    "He's  slow about taking a man, but when he  puts one on, he's there to stay."  There are several kinds of men ycu  don't want. You don't want the spiritless man. You don't want the habitual  rover, the man who never settles down  in one place for any length of time.  You don't want the great talker. You  want a worker, one who is muscled  well in the shoulders and arms, not in  the mouth. You don't want the kind  of a man who thinks he knows better  how to run^a mine than you,do-r-che  professionaf agitator..^ Y^>u .will ,bave.  trouble enough without employing  some one to make it for you.

Poruna does not fail to prevent the lassitude and  languor incident to the approach of -warm weather,  if taken in time.  Mr. Wlenand Houseman, a prominent and aged  citizen of -Seneca Pulls, N, Y., is tho inventor of a  number of implements of modern warfare. Ho  ���wjrltes:   ���.      .������.;.- , ,('.)s.j ..���;��� r  "For several years past I and my'[.family used  your Peruna as a tonic and for tho purification of  tho system in general and find that it la an excellent  medicine to restore weak nerves to a- healthy,  condition." \  Hf-v  Mrs. John E. Mills, 80 Mulberry St., Lynn,  Mass., writes:  "I have been troubled with catarrh since 1  was ton years old. At times my head troubled  mo so that I was obliged to stay in a dark  room. Nothing helped :no and my physician  said I could never bo cured.  "I began taking Peruna this spring and  find myself greatly benefited by it. 1 have  not had an attack since I took my first bottle.  I think In time It will cure me. It has already  Improved my appetite and my general health  and I have gained twenty pounds la three  months.  "I have recommended it to several ot my  friends, who also find tt very beneficial.

"I Balew if I did not got relief, I  ���would soon go into consumption.  "So I decided to try Peruna.

"I have enjoyed better health since taking  "it than I had for several years previous."  You want men of good habits.    I  Spring Catarrh.  Almost ovory 0110 has come to believe  that spring is a Beason that brings derangements of tho body dependent on  blood impurities.  Tills belief Is an old one, is nearly universal, and has arisen, not as tbo result  'f tho toa��,htnK_ *l too luodica. iiaW1-  nll.y, oat has been learned in the bitter  -���iliool of experience.  Vervous Depression.  Depression of the nervous system at  10 approach of spring is a fertile source  ' b'ood imparities.  .   I '.iero   aro   general   lassitude,   dull,  tear/ sensations, continual tired feel-  li'.gw with irregular appetite, and sometimes loss of Bleep.  That Tired Eeeling.  That tired feeling, which is the natural result of tho depressing effect of  warm weather immediately after the  invigorating cold of winter, quickly  dUapoears uhen Poruna ia taken.  The Correct Remedy.  Peruna meets every Indication and  proves itself to bo perfectly adapted to  all their varied peculiarities. Peruna  invigorates the system, rejuvenates the  feelings, restores the normal appetite  *>���" v^ocures regular sleep.  Oo Not Delay.  Got a bottle of Peruna when the first  languid feelings make themselves apparent in the spring. Take it according  to tho directions on tho bottle. Continue this treatment through the firBt  months of spring  This course of treatment is no experiment. It has helped thousands. Why  should it not help youT  A Spring Tonic.  Almost everybody needs a tonic in tho  spring. Something to brace tho nerves,  invigorate tho brain, and cleanse the  blood. That Poruna will do this i3 beyond all question. Everyone who has  tried it has had the same exoorienco aa  Mr. Warren M. Taylor, 1216 8th Ave.,-  Brooklyn, N. Y., who, iu a recent letter,  writes:  "I suffered from % general feeling of  lassitude, with occasional creeping  chills, followed sometimes by fever and  biliousness.  "These symptoms manifested themselves mostly in tho spring and fall.  "1 suffered this way for about seven  years.  "Last spring I began using Peruna  and followed tbe instructions as act  forth In one ot Dr. Hartman's booklets which I picked up in a drug store  and to my great Joy I noticed that  within a week I was nearly cured.  "At the end of two months I was entirely cured and feel as though I have a  new lease of life."  Nature's Assistance.  Spring is the best time to treat catarrh.

A Word of Advice.  To those who have been afflicted with,  chronic catarrh we wish to say that the  spring season affords you. a splendia opportunity to get rid of your disease.  It may be you have been afflicted for  several years; you may have tried different remedies. Perhaps you have become discouraged.  Now Is Your Opportunity.  This failure was during the winter  months. But now is your opportunity.  Nature comes to your assistance at this  season.  Just help her a little and she will  bring you out of the quagmire in which  you have been floundering so long. Give  Nature a little assistance, lest her struggles be in vain.  W., Washington, D. C, as follows  "T brought forward from;Winter,into,  spring a sickening case of catarrh which  was making existence miserable for me,  until I was induced tto try,a bottle of  Peruna.  ''An immediate improvement gave me  hope, if qotTelfef.v I kept up taking Peruna and ifh'as so strengthened and relieved me that'I am now confident of a  cure. I'hba'rtily endorse Peruna for catarrhal affections and as a tonic for their  weakening ofteata.'.'���Geo;;M.^Fillmore.  A short course of Peruna now will  be just In time. During the month of  April you will find the strategic time to  rid yourself of chronic catarrh, one of  the most persistent, stubborn diseases  In tbe. whole' list"of human ailments.  After you have tried it you will say  Peruna. is positively the best spring  medicine you have ever used.  A great many years of extensive trials  of this remedy in this class of derangements have demonstrated its efficiency.  Numerous Testimonials.  Thousands of cases might he quoted  in which Peroma has rescued people  from the ravages of spring catarrh, and  put them on a good, solid foundation of  health.   l  We can give our readers only a slight  glimpse of the vast array of unsolicited  endorsements Dr. Hartman is constantly receiving. No other physician  in the world has received such a volume  of enthusiastic letters of thanks.  ��� If you do not deciveprompt and satis-  factory results from the use of Peruna,  write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a  full statement of your case and he will  ���be pleased to give yon his valuable advice gratis.  Address Dr. Hartman, President of  The Hartman Sanitarium, Columbus,  Ohio. All coEresposdene* held strictly  confidential.  have   mucked   out  thought tbey could  after   men  play  cards  who  in  a  saloon all night and do good work in  the mine the next day, and I didn't  need a cat. I could carry out all the  ground they broke in my pockets. You  want to employ men who are stayers.  It takes time to break a new man into  do the work just as you wish it  done, and time is money.  I have always found a man who  saved part of his earnings a good man  to employ. This does not say that  men who do not save will not be good  men. I have had splendid workmen  whose money went from them after  pay-day like water through a sieve.  That a man does not save is no reflection on his character. The civilized  man is known by the grandeur of his  wants and when a man doesn't save, it  only shows there are other things he  prizes more than he does money. This  is all right, if the things he values are  good in themselves. But some men  are exceedingly wasteful and extravagant and such persons in some places  in the mine will require yout constant  care and oversight.  You will be  told  that  if you  want  good miners you must get Cqrnishmen.  Don't you believe it.    No one country  has a monopoly  of  brawn   or  brains.  Of four premium men, not born in the  United  States,  whom   I   had  at' one  mine, one was a native  of  Germany,  one of Sweden, one   of Nova Scotia,  and   one   of   Switzerland.    There   is  many a capable, skilled miner among  the Cornish, but   you   will   get   better  work out of your men if they feel that  you  are   not   prejudiced   in   favor   of  some  one  nationality,   but   that   you  judge every man on his merits, regardless of where he may have been born.  It is a  rule  of the   Miners' Union  that all minets must receive the same  remuneration, regardless of their being  skilled or unskilled; but it  is no fault  ol the Union if you choose to give employment  to  poor  workingmcn  or to  men   who   will   cause   you    trouble.  "Hut," 1   hear   you   say, "every   mine  can't have  a   force   of picked men."  Yes, it   can, if  it   so   chooses.     One  11111 st not make the mistake of thinking  that in choosing good men  every foreman will take the same-type.    I have  seen  a  force   of   very   superior   men  gathered   by   one   foreman   go  all  to  pieces in a few   weeks  under his successor.    The   new   man   was   better,  educated than his predecessor; he was  more intelligent, but   he   was  lacking  somewhat in those  elements  of character that make  the   bom ruler.    He  thus failed to dominate his men.    But  he made a good foreman, nevertheless,  and had good men under him, but the  keen   observer would  detect that the  new  men   put   on   were   unassuming.  1'hey did not have as  pronounced an  individuality  as   the   men   who   quit.  Then, again, tastes differ in this world.  Give one man certain work to do with  a team and  he   will   choose   the   bestj  American horses he can get.    Another  will   think   bronchos "just the  thing,"  and a third will take cayuses.    For our  work I  want you   to   have   thoroughbreds.    There are   plenty   of  persons  who will be satisfied with the men you  do not accept and undoubtedly there  will be many good men   among them  To make a success as   a foreman  you 1  must have men who find it a pleasure  to recognize your leadership.    No one  can pick such men for you.   You must j  size up the applicants  and   choose for  yourself.  Sincerely yours,  Timotiiv Stronc.  COLUMBIAN COLLEGE.  Founded 1892���Incorporated 1893.

Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can digest  the Iron in any ordinary form. These  difficulties have been entirely removed  by the introduction of FERROL, in  which the Iron is scientifically combined with the Oil, rendering the Oil  palatable and the Iron digestible.  While  is manufactured from the best quality  of Cod Liver Oil (the whole of the Oil)  and is richer in oil than any other  emulsion, and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  and Phosphorus, it is so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thousand finds any trouble in taking it,  and infants digest it without difficulty.  Moreover the well-established value of  the Oil and Iron is immensely  enhanced by the process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to be wondered at that  physicians everywhere have fully  endorsed FERROL. and used it argely  in their practice. FERROL is invaluable for the treatment of any kind of  Lung oir Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  "You Know What  You Take'*;  W. A.

We will look the watch  over any time you call, time  11 and rub up the case to make  it look like new. We will keep  it uuder li'e long supervision  and see that it serves you well  and faithfully.  If you get a watch from a  general store 500 miles dis-  lant, it won't be satisfactory  at the start and it will be less  satisfactory ever after. A  500-mile shaking is rough  treatment for a watch, and  you have no redress except to  repent at leisure. We sell at  the same price as mail order  houses.  MORRISON,  JEWELER and OPTICIAN.  J.L.
