one in the tull vigor ot manhood has been suddenly
stricken b- this ruthless disease, and made almost as helpless and dependent as an infant.
Chained to the invalid's chair or hobbling about on crutches, and continually tormented
with pain, the patient in desperation resorts to the use of opiates, which deaden the pain but i
ieaa to ruinous naDits. tnere is no aisease so aggressive and stubborn as Rheumatism
after it becomes well intrenched or fixed in the system, and no liniment or other external
application can check it or do any permanent good. Rheumatism is not due to outside
influeuces or causes, but is a constitutional disease, an internal inflammation produced by a
too acid condition of the blood. Waste matter that should have been cast out of the bodv is
retained, fermentation takes
the blood, and as it circulates through the system every
joint, membrane, tissue and nerve is saturated wftn
these corrosive, irritating acids ; when exposure to cold
and damp or a spell of indigestion will bring on a fierce
attack that almost takes the breath by its suddenness
and severity. The parts affected become inflamed and
swollen, and every movement is attended with pains
that seem to cut like a knife into the tender flesh and
nerves. After Rheumatism becomes chronic there is al
ways a soreness and weakness of the back and dull
throbbing pains in the muscles and joints and an ever increasing stiffness of the limbs.
This Demon of Pain attacks the old and young, the strong and the weak no one is exempt,
but from middle life to old age is the time when its assaults become most frequent and severe.
At this period the vital energies begin to wane, the blood grows weak and thin, and is easily
chilled, the circulation becomes uncertain and slow and there is scarcely a moment's
freedom from pain in some part of the body.
The treatment of Rheumatism must be internal; some remedy that can reach and
neutralize the poisonous acids and cleanse the circulation. S. S. S., a purely vegetable
medicine, acts promptly and surely in all Rheumatic cases, purifying and invigorating the
builds up the general health, thus fortifying the system against the tortures of Rheumatism.
Alkalies, Potash and mineral remedies have an opposite effect, destroying the delicate lining
of the stomach and often permauently impairing the constitution. S. S. S. is guaranteed
entirel)- vegetable, and a specific in all Rheumatic troubles. Our Physicians will gladly
advise, without charge, all who write them about their case, and we will mail free our special
book on Rheumatism THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO.. Atlanta, Ga.

Rheumatism seems tb take a fiendish delight in torturing its
victims. No mode of punishment ever invented bv mnn.
or practiced by devil-possessed savage, has caused more
bodily suffering, such deep, racking pains, as this pitiless
disease. Rheumatism leaves in its trail distorted muscles,
crooked and misshapen joints and limbs, and the intense
pain and agony endured is reflected in the haggard and
furrowed countenance of the sufferer. Rheumatism makes
us grow old and decrepid before our time, and many an
place, unc, Lactic and other acids
impoverished blood, eradicating an impurities rrom the
system, and sending a stream of rich new blood to wash out
the irritating particles that are causing the inflammation
and pains. In chronic cases, or those developing late in
life, S. S. S. is especially effective ; it warms and enriches
the blood, restores nervous energy and stimulates the
failing; organs, improves the appetite and digestion, and

J. P. Dillon received a big chunk
of ore yesterday from his Wizard
mine which the railroad graders are
developing for him. The cut being
made by the graders is now down
thirty-five feet and the ore taken out
goes $40 per ton.
E. E. Greenwood, superintendent
for the Cadillac Mining company, has
placed a force of men at work on the
R. M. Dougherty properties at
Crowned King. The properties were
only purchased by the company less
than a week ago, but they have al
ready commenced work on them.
Judge R. M. Ling has been out at
the Gopher mine for over a week
superintending the work of putting
in a steam hoist on that property for
tne McCabe Extension company
Just as soon as the hoist is in position
they will commence developing the
mine and taking out ore. Improve
ment continues in the value of the
ore being taken from the McCabe Ex
tension company's property adjoin
ing the McCabe mine.
Ben Blanchard has brought in a
large sample of ore from the Gold
Rope mine in the Bill William's Fork
country, which is a remarkably fine
looking: specimen. It is a sample
from a lot of
which he has hve car
loads, and contains 14 per cent in
copper, 12 ounces in silver and frum
$12 to $22 per ton in gold. The n.i:ie
is owned by a syndicate of Kansas
Benson is to have a custom smelter.
The plant will cost in the neighbor
hood of 150.000. The machinery has
been ordered. It will be in operation
within ninety days. The promoters
of the enterprise are Peter Kirk, A.
J. Pigeon and Mr. Boygers, of San
Francisco. These gentlemen have
formed a company known as the Em
pire Smelting company. Mr. Pigeon
and Mr. Kirk are now on the ground
at Benson, drawing plans of the plant
and ordering the machinery. The
site chosen is the old Webster smelter
site for which was paid $ZdU0.
O. A. Peterson, an old-timer iu th. I
country, has applied for a patent for
j a new method of cyaniding. cy his
process he keeps the cyanide solution
pure by the use of electricity ana can
save values up to 99 per cent on any
kind of leaching ore. By this discov
ery there is a great saving over the
old methods and low grade ores can
be worked at a profit which hereto
fore could not be handled. Mr.
Peterson was here Tuesday and re
turned to El Dorado canyon yester
day, where he is working his method
with marked success. Kingman Ar
row. The Socorro Gold Mining company
is starting active operation on ite
propertv near Wickenburg. The
News-rlerald of that place says that
its big hoist and one of the 80-horse
power boilers arrived Wednesday and
have been sent out to the mine. An
other 80-horse- power boiler is ex
pected within a few days, it being
necessary to have two of this capacity
in place of a larger one on account of
the distance all machinery has to be
hauled. The hoist is a mammoth af
fair, warranted to sink several thou
sand feet, and is the largest yet in
stalled in this vicinity.
The copper situation in the eastern
markets seems to be improving and
from reports published in the eastern
financial journals, it looks as if the
copper war had come to an end, and
that a regular price had been fixed
for the red metal until 1903. It is to
be hoped that this is true, for the
late battle among the copper kings
was most disastrous to many new and
meritorious enterprises. With a
satisfactory agreement reached, many
excellent properties that were forced
to shut down pending the outcome
of the trouble, will without doubt
start up again and with a good assu
rance that no further exigencies will
arise during the year to retard devel
opment work. With copper at fifteen
cents Arizona will make a big show
ing this year.
The Pyramid Gold and Copper j
Mining company which owns a group
of claims adjoining the Copper Basin
i Gold and Copper Mining company s
property, are making satisfactory t
progress in the development of this
property. They are sinking two

ramid gives promise of becoming a
friendly rival of the Copper Basin
company when development has pro
gressed to a greater stage and no
company or mine in this section
makes a better showing with the
amount of development work done,
than those owned by these two com
panies, with all the indications which
miners and mining experts judge j
from, in the way of formation as well
as the showings so far developed, for
big profit paying properties. Every
miner who visits that section and
makes an examination of work al- j
ready done together with surface in
dications, comes away highly im
pressed with the possibilities of these ;
A piece of work, of which little is ;
heard lately, is now nearintr comple
tion in the big United Verde, and it ,
will probably be only a matter of j
weeks when considerable change will
be made, says the Jerome News. The 1
work in question is the new shaft sit
uated between 300 and 450 feet north ,
! of the present working shaft. It was
started about two years ago and
' would probably have been finished
long before now had not certain
obstructions been met with which the 1
shaft was designed to evade. These
obstructions were large bodies of ore,
encounterea wnere least eipevieu,
and necessitated a change being
made, which naturally caused consid
erable delay in the work. Persistent
efforts, however, have brought it al
most to completion, and it will not be
long before all of the ore hoisted
from the mine will be brought out
through this shaft. In size it is
about 10x30 feet in the clear, with
three compartments, and, although in
solid syenite, is strongly timbered
from the top to the 700 foot level. It
is connected by drifts with each level
through which electric trams will
convey the ore to the cages. The
surface equipment will consist of one
of the largest and finest high-speed
hoists ever brought to the terri-
... .. r -
torv. with a capacity 01 noisi

ent working shaft is located. It was
found that this latter chaft was being
thrown out of line by the working oi

smash ups and as it was dangerous
to run at high spaed it was deemed
expedient to put a shaft where these
difficulties could not occur.
W. W. Munds was in town today
from Copper Basin and reports satis
factory progress being made on the
property of the Copper Basin Gold
and Copper Mining company. The
crosscut at the 100 foot level has
been run a distance of eighteen feet
without showing any signs of a wall,
but marked improvements are show
ing up in the quality of the ore with
every foot of development work. The
face of the crosscut is in a blue por
phyry with copper and iron sul
phides and the copper is coming in
quite strong. The ore shows better
values also than formerly, though no
assays have yet been made of it, and

stratethe correctness of the theory j
concerning this property. It shows
for itself at this depth and has shown
with every foot of development in
creasing values in the ore as depth is
made. It is estimated that the cross
cut will probably have to be contin
ued fifteen or twenty feet yet before
the full width is determined. The
crosscut is at the bottom of the shaft
on the Black Prince mine, and should
it improve in the next 100 feet as it
has from the surface to the present
depth, a bonanza is assured in the
mine. The company has been ob
taining its water supply from a well
onlv a few feet deep, and owing to
the large increase ?in the number of
men being worked now the supply
became somewhat short and it was
decided to sink the well deeper. In
they were looking for-water-but

Hundreds of Illinois corporations
are in danger of losing their charters,
because of their failure to comply j
with the law passed in 1899 requiring ,
that each concern make an annual
report to the secretary of state, giving ,
the location of the principal office,
the nature of the business and th I
names of the president directors or
manager. There are nearly 12.000
corporations doing business in the
state, and although the time for mak
ing the report expired today only
5,436 have complied with the law.
Owing to the prevalence of dip
theria among the Pueblo Indians,
Superintendent C.J. Crandall of the .
United States Indian school, has pro
claimed a general quarantine among
the Pueblo Indians, and has warned
them from coming into any of the
towns or American settlements. He
has also telegraphed the interior de
partment for authority to procure
anti-toxin for use among the Pueblos
in their twenty or more villages. In
northern Taos county, New Mexico,
the dintheria is very fatal among the

disease has not extended to the cities
nor to other counties. Miss Disette.

O'Donovan BoaM, the noted Irish

of blood poisoning at St. Francis
hospital, Denver, and his death may
occur any day. A week ago while
paring a corn on a calloused spot on
his right feot he cut deeper than he
intended. The wound was slight,
but neglect soon developed blood
poisoning. For two or three days he
has been delirious from fever. Gan
grene finally set in. His condition
was so grave that City Physician
Richardson was called and he was
removed to the hospital. Amputation
of the leg was advised, but Rossa re
fused to consent. This morning sev
eral important bones were removed
from the foot. Rossa is in a coma
tose condition, with a high tempera
ture and a feeble circulation. His
brother, John Rossa of Sioux City,
Iowa, has been notified.
Gov. William Jennings somehow
made a miscue in signing the death
warrant of a Florida darkey and in
serted the name of a Palatka preach
er who wouldn't murder a guineapig.
The preacher for some reason doesn t
want to be hanged and although the
sheriff feels himself bound by his
official oath to execute him. he has
consented to postpone the function
long enough to listen to argument.
It has been discovered that five or
six members of the Earl family, liv
ing about three miles from Welch,
La. have been murdered, and that
the head of the household has disap
peared. No search has yet been
made for his body although it is gen
erally believed that he has been
killed. His wife had the whole front
of her face smashed in with some
blunt instrument. One of the sons
had been shot through the head, and
the throats of three others were cut.

NEW LOCOMOTIVE HEADLIGHT.
A Regular Searchlight Which WHI Cast
Its Rays Ten Miles and Will Pre
A Chicago telegram of recent date
gives the following description of a
recent invention in railroading which
is expected to prove the means of
saving many human lives:
The practical demonstration of the
utility of a new departure, which is
claimed by railway officials, will ef
fectively prove the solution, in a large
degree, of the railway collisioti prob
lem, was made last night on the Chi-
cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road
near here. The device consists of an
exceeding powerful headlight, which
not only perfectly illuminates the
track with an intensely brilliant shaft
of light for a mile, but also embraces

The apparatus consists of a power -i
ful electric arc headlight, a dynamo
i and steam motor, all of which occupy
I the space on the locomotive usually
! devoted to the headlight. The dy
! namo which generates the current for
the vertical searchlight occupies a
space of fifteen inches wide directly
behind the headlight and is operates
by a motor driven bv steam impact
on a turbine wheel. The current is
6000 candle power, which can be re
duced to any degree of brilliancy at
the will of the engineer.

proposed to convey signals of distress

the use of colored glass to color the

Alvord and Bravo Elude the Officers.
Information received from the south
states that Alvord and Bravo J uan.
the Arizona outlaws had escaped.
Sheriff Lewis of Cochise county has
1 just returned from Cuyita, Mexico, a
j point 75 miles from Hermosillo. It
was at that point that Alvord and
Bravo Juan were located by the Mex
ican officials and everything arranged
for their capture. So positive
capture were the Mexican officials
: that their assurance gave rise to the
supposition that they had already
been arrested, whereas they had mere
lv located the fugitives and knowing
I that their arreat was not suspicioned.
i the Mexican officials expected to
make the capture at an opportune
time. In this they reckoned without
their hosts as the two birds had flown
instead of falling into the trap pre

were much nettled in being foiled in
their effort to capture the fugitives
and are redoubling their energies to
bring them to bay. It is thought by
the Mexican officers that some friend
of the outlaws warned them a few
moments before their arrival. Their
ultimate capture is yet looked for as
the officials are determined. Gazette.

"Corporations in California whose

to be operating in restraint of trade,
contrary to the terms of the Sherman
anti-trust law, are to be proceeded
against by the government. Rumors
to this effect that have been in local
circulation for several days were to
