Cananea, Soil, Mex., Feb. S. After
having ran steadily almost two months,
the Democrat company's smelter was
forced to close down as the result of
a. fire caused by molten matte splash
,111; against -wooden portions of the
smelter building and causing them to
burn down to the ground. A loss of be
tv ten $10,000 and $12,000 TJ. S. currency
was suffered. The actual damage to the
smelter was not so great, save the cov
ering up of the- furnace by debris. The
ore bins were also destroyed. Immedi
ately after the fire was extinguished,
the company began work clearing up
the debris and reconstructing of the
buildings. This old furnace was not
damaged bv the fire and this portion
cf the smelter will probably be placed
.n commission the first of the coming
v tek. The old furnace is of 125 tons
capacity, white the new furnace was
twice that amount The new furnace
uill probably again be in operation by
the first of .March. During the time
the new furnace was in use it was
making copper at the rate of about
20.000 pounds dailv. and the old fur
nace will be able to make about half
that amount. It is understood tbat
v. hen the new furnace is again ready
for use, both furnaces will be placed
in operation steadily, thereby permit
ting a dally output of 30,000 pounds.
The company had only recently com
pleted the instalation of an amount of
new machinery, erected new build
ings, etc, and brought up its plant up
to date in every respect. Underground

Babieenera Mine Sold.
The old Babicanora mine, located in
the Chispas district, close to the mine
of that name, has been sold to a Penn
s!vania organization by the former
owners, a Plattsmouth Neb., syndicate.
The new owners will begin at once to
fi.lly develop the property and operate
it on a larger scale than ever hereto
fore. In fact work has already been
commenced in cleaning out the old
workings, the work being in charge
..f W. T. Frasler, of San Francisco, who
recently arrived in the city and went
to the property. During the present
-vieek about five wagon loads of sup
plies 'were shipped out of Cananea to
the property. The Babicanora mine is
one of the most generally known of any
Sonora property, having a history dat
ing back to the early days. At one
time a French syndicate 'was operat
ing it and, instead of using dynamite
t break the rock, lime was used, pow
der being unknown in those days. The
tunnel driven by the French company
js still known as the "French" tunneL
It is over 1000 feet in length and is
sufficiently large to permit a wagon
and team to be driven through it. High
grade silver ore has been mined in the
p8t, but the lead seemed to have been
lost as others who operated the prop
erty did so at a loss. The new owners
have had a thorough examination made
c' the property. The Chispas property,
w hich is only about half a mile from
the property, is noted for its high grade
The new portion of the mill of tha
Moctexuma-Arizpe company, consist
ing of four Wilfley tables and
the same number of Callow tanks,
has been placed in operation and
the mill is now turning out be
tween 12 and IS tons of concen
trates dailv which are being shipped
to the El Paso smelter. The property
is situated about 18 miles southeast of
tVnanea and has been working steadily
iiice operations were resumed last
i,ar by the Mexican Metals company
hich now control the company.
Ella Strikes Zinc-Lead Ore.
Rafael Elias is reported to have en
countered some high grade zinc-lead
ore on his Cobnza property, located be
tween the properties of the Cananea -Kc.ston
and Calumet and Sonora com
panies. During the past week consid
erable ore carj ing high percentages in
zinc and Jaa together with some sil
ver values, was encountered on the
l-ft foot level, and it is believed that
t is the top of an ore body, as it car

linking . mcliruj h.'t while a drift
is also being run on the 100 foot level.
A whim was recently installed.
According to J. E. Dawson, president
of the Dolores Mining and Development
company, work is soon to be resumed
on the property of the company, lo
cated west of Cananea. Accompanied
by A. Colberg. a stockholder in the
company, and R. P. Saffold, a mining
engineer, Mr. Dawson made a tour of
inspection over the properties of tbe
company this week and returned the
latter portion of the week.
Under the- management of R. B. Phil
lips, the sinking, of the shaft on the
Maria denouncement of the Carman
Consolidated company is being rapidly
done. During the week Capt M. Trew
hella of Hibbing, Minn., recently vis
ited the property.
"With the intention of soon beginning
placer mining on the Carpenter No. 3
property, in the Santa Cruz locality.
Chas. Falk and George Daggert are at
present looking over the property.
Cobrizn Smelter to Start.
The new smelter of the Cobriza Min
ing company. located about 17 miles
west of Xoria, will be blown in the
first 6f the coming week. President F.
C. Emery of the company was recently
in Cananea securing smelter men. The
smelter was erected almost two years
ago, but on account of the unsettled
conditions it was not blown In when
expected to. The furnace is of the
Macdonald hot blast type and of 150
tons capacity. The force of men will
be increased from 75 to over 100 at once.
During the time the company has
operated, which is about six years, over
10,000 feet of work has been done un
derground, and a large supply of ore
has been mined reaay for reduction.
which will average $18 a ton. The
shaft has reached'a depth of 525 feet
and will be continued down to the 1000
level. The company is using auto
trucks for the freighting of supplies
from the railroad.
TonlchI Smelter to Begin "Work.
The new smelter of Mina Mexico, near
Tonichi, the blowing in of which has
been delayed for some time by unset
tled political affairs of the republic,
will probably be placed In operation by
the middle of the month. Manager "Win.
E. Pomeroy has gone to Chicatrn on
business relating to this matter. The
company has been doing considerable
development work during the past few
months, and it is planning to develop
some new properties as soon as possi
ble, probably in the spring. Yaqul In
dians have been causing considerable
annoyance by interfering with the
freighters which makes it difficult for
the company to retain employes.
The Ormos mine, located near Cum
pas, will begin soon to ship its ores
to the El Paso smelter instead of the
Copper Queen, on account of lead com
ing into the ore recently. The owners
are preparing also to ship at least one
carload of high grade ore a month, this
giving them sufficient funds to carry
on development work. There are 48 men
employed at present, working in two
tunnels being driven from opposite
sides of a hill, and which will meet
sometime in July.
The Sonora Consolidated company is
continuing work on its property 30

enced a mine rush that would rival the
great excitement in California and
Alaska, and it was all over the loca
tion of one mine, according to a mining
man arriving here from that district
He says that some years ago an old
abandoned Spanish mine was located
by an American named Carr, but during
the iladero revolution Carr failed to
pay his taxes. Believing that he had
lost the property he informed a friend
named Cobler. and Cobler located the
ground in his own name. Carr"s claim
had never been declared lost and the
department of foraento invalidated Cob
ltr's location. The property was then
bulletined for relocation, both Cobler
fSu Carr eing barred under the law.
When the mineral office opened on
Jan. 27, there were 178 applicants seek
ing the rich mineral ground. . Bach had
made his deposit of about 100 pesos to
cover the stamp tax and had his written
application, bearing a 60 cent stamp,
ready to present.
r, Ltl3e 178 applications 80 were from
Cuslhuirlachtc and 98 by Chihuahua
people, and it is said by the mining
man that all of the latter wore the
representatives of Abram Gonzales, rot

THIS CUT IS US
First to call your attention to the statements given
below. Second to remind you of the fact that you
i t ' ,,K-l- lio Tii TYiaiTnorl
-7-5 may De in a iar worsu cumuuuu "
man. It may be tnat you are ana ao uoi leauc n.
It may be that, you have realized it for 'a long time
but found no one who could ascertain the cause so
that you might getwell by its removal. It may be
that you feel like dozens of good men and women
who have been in my office since opening here a few
months since with the deepest look of sorrow and
occasionally anguish, because some socalled special
ist or i jtitute robbed them under promise to cure.
.1 lived in this city ten years ago, did business
here just like I am today, had a successful business,
cured people just like I am doing today. Have friends,
some of whom are among the very highest type of
financiers and representative citizens who have been
my friends all these years. For personal reasons I
moved to Fort Worth, where I have been identified
with everything demanded of a public man; where i
have practically reared a family, and where I have
friends by the thousand. I own a home there that if
it could be set in this city would be considered one of
the best, but that is impossible; I own realty or homes
in other Texas cities as well as in other states that I
cannot bring here.
But I did bring.here an honorable reputation with a financial standing that I
am proud of and which is today filling my office with the best people of this
city as patients. I am proud of my past in this great state.
I am proud of the fact that I -ave been one of its builders and am glad
that I did not have to come here a bum, as some I know who could not live at
other places and who seem to have forgotten the fact, but who think they are
landed lords and own the country by priority.
I LIKE TO SEE A MAN SUCCEED, but if he must fall because of
stronger competition there is nothing left but to "drop a fitm'."
I came to you sonie months since announcing that I had returned again
to cast my lot with you; brought statements from my banks, patients, friends
political, religious, business and financial. I have shown my record to be clean
since I left you and that I have been doing the same high class work that I did
before and asked to be considered for a portion of your business in my line.
You have responded well to date and I have been able to make more
good and lasting friends, cure more patients for the same time, as well as take
more for treatment than when here before or at any other place. My state
ments of facts to you gave you confidence, your response gave me animated
vigor and I feel today that with my 24 years of experience, with everything
that a Specialist needs, I will cure more people who have been botched over
than, at any time in my life. The fact is few men have been to my office here
who have not been treated by some so-called specialist, who in many cases was
ashamed of his name, much less make a contract that would be worth a peso
I take each, case with the positive guarantee that I am the oldest reliable
specialist in the state 6f Texas. " X do not mean in age, "but professionally, that
I have treated more cases, cured more people, furnished more voluntary state
ments from cured people than any other Dr. That I do business in my own
name and you know whom you are dealing with that my fees are as low as
efficient work or service will permit and that I give a careful painstaking ex
amination to any who come, whether they become patients or not.
With such a guarantee that I make which is backed by my record and
vouched for by all classes of citizenship you do yourself wrong to allow graft
ers and inefficient socalled specialists rob you of your money. INVESTI
GATE THE CREDIT OF ANY INSTITUTE OR NAJME EST TEXAS TO
DAY at any place and you will find that the financiers will tell you that most
of them are rotten. That is the way they are rated and I can produce the
showing if I had to.
How manr men are doing honest advertising in their own names? Why
do they have to do it under other names. If you will look up their his
tory the reason is easily seen, even a child could see that. I have cured and
cured and taken more cases of stricture for the time than any PLAGE DUR
ING THE PAST 24 YEARS since coming here. Few men who are thirty
have not had and do have more or less stricture. Sometimes they do not real
ize it until their nervous system begins to go to pieces, loss of memory and
other things that usually go with it I HAVE NAMES OF DOZENS OF
PATIENTS CURED FROM ONE TO FIFTEEN YEAJRS AGO THEY
STAYED CURED, even those I have to cure after some Dr. has made a failure
IF IT BE EVIDENCE THAT YOU WANT I CAN PRODUCE TT
FOR ANYTHING I STATE in my advertising or personally.
BLOOD POISON I use the latesrup-to-date recognized by specialists
the world over that cures when used by a Dr. who knows how. I had an el
derly gentleman in niy office today from Mex. who had been treated by one
of the oldest specialists in this city with his teeth dropping out. There is ab
solutely no excuse today for such a condition. Be careful where you -o I
AM NOT GOING TO CALL BY NAME THE DISEASES I TREA.t'aND
CURE. You do not need that. You know there is something wrong, it may
be one thing and possibly diagnosed or called another name. I pay no atten
tion to names of diseases, but to the condition of my patient. After I find out
the cause I know if it can b& removed a cure made and if I see that it can I
tell you just how much work, time and cost and when this is said, if vou reallv
want to be cured we can arrange you prices and terms in proportion to
your ability to meet them.
I treat and cure chronic and private diseases of men and women
Any time a promise is made to cure I will give under contract a check
like the following. I have been doing this for; jears, and you know no man
could do it without he knew he possessed ability to "deliver the goods:"
