\'AN P. CLARK, manager for the Butte Crude Petroleum company which is now boring an oil well on Its property near Moorcroft, Crooke county, Wyoming, is not only an experienced nman in the oil business, but is also an expert iit quartz mining. Ire acquired hIia knowledge of oil well drilling in thle petroleum fields of P'ennsylvania, his native state, and then began his career as a mnlinilg man in the \Vest. IHe has opened up several good mines in the I.lutte listrict--made money out of sonie and sunllllk it in others. Among the mines worked by him in this district were the lilhmont, t;oldsmitlh No. 2, Edith. '[icon. Ifesperus. W\iet iGem and the \Vest layflower. Thel latter is located near Whitehall, JelTcrsol county. Ilis work there cotsisted in drivinig a tunnel 1,5(0 feet and sinking a shaft Joi feet. ,,:, EVAN P. CLARK. It cost $45,o00 to open iup the properly, bult while that sunt was beilng put illto it $85,0oo was taken out. The VWest May flower is owned by William Owslcy and others. 'lhe work done by Mr. Clark on that mine was his first experience undcr Sialary as a mine operator, notwithstanding the fact that he has been mining siince 7879. iJ'he money lie lost and mado in opening tip other properties 1lt lUutto and vicinity was his own, as he Worked with either a lease and Iond at his back or a lease alone. In 1893 he took shout $36,p90 fromt the G;oldsmith No. 2, located north of Walk trville, and later on sunk $2S,ono In de velopilng the Edith lMay. From the West Cent, owned by the Davis estate, lie took $17,ooo in 15 months. Ihe ore was cop per and silver. As far back as 1Rgo Mr. Clark maiagled mining property. In that year hu had charge of the mines of the Jones-ltonauza Mining company in lPark tCity, 'tah, aol last sprling lie experted the Jones prop. Crty for John J. Daly, one of the presenlt owners of the Daly-West, near Park City. Like other stuccessfuil tining mllen, Mr. Clark never has anything to say about the merits of a mine, Hle recognizes the fact that there Is an unwritten law amolng all mining men which impels theci to keep their own counsel in matters in which others are involved. To John J. Italy tlone lie imparted the result of his exam in;tion of the Jones property and let it go at that because i \ was iin the employ of Mr. D)aly for that purpose. Since Ilutte mIen became inlterested in the oil fi hils of Wyoming, i. he has taken great interest in the district and i\nvested considerlile money in laind in whichl he feels sure there is oil in ;lhundance. Ile owns a good bizcd piece of sieveral tracts .and purposes. to bore until the ];ike belows is reached. At present he is in Ititite ar ratging for an excursi.,o of capitalists to the scene of operation. STRIKE OF COAL MINERS AFFECTS COPPER MARKET John Stanton Says Lake Product Would Be Selling at 13 Cents Were It Not for Pennsylvania Trouble. Of the condition of ie coppller market Jolihn Stanton, who keeps posted on the sit ttiti(il, Says "If you will tell me what Is to e tilhe Outcome of this coal strike, then I will tell you something about the futture ,f the market for refined copper. If the bittni nous miners vote to strike the outlook is by no means bright, but if the strike i: brought to an endl in the iear future the present uncertainty will be eliminated and buyers will not hesitate to comle into the market for large quantities. At present, however, everyone prefers to wait until the situation becomes mnore clear. I firmly be lieve that if a strike of the anthracite miners had not broken out the price of lake copper would now lie as high as tj cents per pound. "Consumntion of copper ill this coulltry as well as abroad is now very large. The t rge shipments of copper abroad dluring UiO past six months have gone into actttwl consumption, and the visible supply of copper is steadily decreasing. "Since Januatry I cotalumption has in Largey Lumber Co. All Kinds of Roafh and Dressed Lumber Estimates from plans cheerfully given. Spe cfal attention to mill work of all kinds. We solicit your trade,.A.At. Telephone 547. Office and Yards, Iron street, East of Arizona St;, B~tte. ! I created over 2a per cent, while production has increased only 5 per cent." II. L. (asey says of the copper situation: "Many of the consumers of copper have supplied their wants of three months ahead and will hesitate to buy lake copper above 1t cents. Production is increasing at theL rate of :5 per cent over last year. "The' contsumlltion of copper in Europe is limited. Stocks of copper abroad are on' the increase, and consequently the market will be a slow rne for a year or two. IDrintg that time I believe that prices will fluctluate ibetwc.n Ji I t iand 1J cents per pounitd.

SCROFULA I bequeath to my children Scrofula with all its attend ant horrors, humiliation and suffering. This is a strange legacy to leave to posterity; a heavy burden to place upon the shoulders of the young. * -. This treacherous disease dwarfs the body and hinders the growth and development of the faculties, and the child born of blood poison or scrofula-tainted parentage, is poorly equipped for life's duties. Scrofula is a disease with numerous and varied symp toms; enlarged glands or tumors about the neck and arm pits, catarrh of the head, weak eyes and dreadful skin eruptions upon different parts of the body show the pres ence of tubercular or scrofulous matter in the blood. This dangerous and stealthy disease entrenches itself securely in the system and attacks the bones and tissues, destroys the red corpuscles of the blood when decay of the bones take place, resulting in white swelling, a pallid, waxy appearance of the skin, loss of strength and a gradual wasting away of the body. S. S. 8. combines both purifying and tonic properties, making it the ideal remedy in all scrofulous affections. It builds up and purifies the deteriorated blood, makes it rich and strong when all tubercular deposits are prevented, and a complete and permanent cure is soon effected. S. S. S. improves the digestion and assimilation of food, restores the lost properties to the blood and quickens the circulation, bringing a healthy color to the skin and vigor to the weak and emaciated body. Write us about your case and our physicians will cheerfully advise and help you in every possible way to regain your health. Book on blood and skin diseases free. .TIE SWIsT SPtCIrIC CO..
