U. S. Steel and Other Extensive

Mahnoning and Stevenson mines, two of
the biggest In the lake region, rtavo closed
for the season, after shipments of about
1,000,000 tons each.
Others Close.

after producing 220,000 tons between
them. One is to be verv heavily stripped

aggregating more than 1,250.000 tons. P'om

Mines in and immediately s.uirounding
the village of Hibblng have this vear pio
duced more than 5,500,000 tons of ore, a
record that no other place in the entire
world can approximate.
Wages Holding Up.
There have been no wage inductions in
the entire Lake Superior iron mining dis
trict, except at Iron River, Menominee
range, where pay for two years has been
slightly higher than at surrounding cen
ters, and where it IF now equalized. Thei e
have been no reductions in the lake copper
region, except at Trlmountain. Houghton,
where a cut of 10 per cent has gone into
effect. Others may be made later pos

mined more than 200.000 tons from their

planning to produce the coming year

1904 to Be a Good Year.
The fact is that none of the large steel
makers, including the United State* cor
poration, are arranging for the winter in
such a way as to indicate any expecta
tion of a quiet year In 1904. They will
all mine as much ore as this year, and
Home of them more. Reductions of mining
forces that most of them have made are
simply readjustments from the excessive,
calculations of a year ago, when it looked
as tho the production of 1903 would be
Rational people thought it was aw
ful, as the shell had no food value,
and was, of course, indigestible and
It is just as crazy for rational peo
ple to swallow a lot of cod liver oil, to
get the medicinal curatives from it,
as it -was for the crazy man to eat
the egg, shell and all.
Modern science has proved that the
oil, or greasy part of cod liver oil, has
no value whatever, and only upsets
the stomach and retards recovery. It
is the medicinal elements which are
enveloped in the cod liver oil, of
which there are about fifty, that rep
resent all the tonic and curative
power of the famous old remedy.
A preparation containing all the
medicinal curative elements of cod
liver oil, actually taken from fresh
cods' livers, but entirely free from oil
or grease, must, therefore, be the very
best tome reconstructor possible.
Such is Vinol. It positively does con
tain every one of the fifty odd medic
inal curative elements of cod liver
oil, fresh and sweet, just as the egg
shell contains the nutritious food,
and we throw away the useless, indi
gestible oil. just as you throw away
the egg shell.

Armstrong had been worktng with a threshing

house to get a ride into town in the evening.
About 4 o'clock the joung Chute boys, who, with

shot, and rushing into the room where the noise
came from, discoveied Armstrong lying on his
back with a bullet thui his head and a 44-caliber
rifle lying acioss his knees.
The first theorj was suicide, but as the ball
entered the back of the head and came out thru
the eye, lodging in the frame of a looking glass
before which the victim was standing, this the

Des Moines, Iowa, Nov. 9.Judge Howe
has handed down ^ decision affecting tax
ation of a 1 savings and national banks
in Iowa. H e rules that savings banks
may hold bonds and that the state may
collect taxes on the same from the bank
itself. Government bonds may be re
garded as an exemption from the prop

shares against the holders no deduction
can be made because the bank holds gov

The case involves $1,000,000 in assess

the state will increase the state assess

Just. Oxygen.
Liquozone is simply liquid oxygen
no drugs, no alcohol }n It., It is the
discovery of Pauli, the great German
chemist, who spent 20 years on it. His
object was to get such an excess of
oxygen in staple form into the blood
that no germ could live in any mem
brane or tissue.
Oxygen is life to an animalthe
very source of vitality. We would die
in three minutes without it. In this
liquid form its effects are exhilarating,
purifying,, vitalizing. But .germs are
vegetables, and this excess of oxygen
is deadly to vegetable matter.

Chouteau County Relieved of Trial of

FORT BENTON. MONT.District court for
the twelfth district convened last week. Judge
Tattan presiding. A jury of fifty names was
drawn, to appear on Dec. 1. The calendar is a
light one, there being but one cilminal case,
that of the state vs. John DeHaven and Henry
Collins, charged with burglary.
It seems that Chouteau county will be re
lieved of the trial of Fred Dudley and Bert
Lewis, charged with horse stealing. They were
apprehended at Maple creek, across the Canadian
line. By the time extradition papers were per
fected, Dudley made his escape from the jail
at Maple creek, and Lewis has been held by the
Canadian authorities on a charge of bringing
stolen property into Canada. There ate three
civil cases. .

variably ends the disease, and forever.
