A home is never complete without children.
Yet many homes arc childless. Many wives an
desolate for the Lick of a child to love. Their
lives are aimless void of the high motives of
motherhood. While barrenness is causing incal.

cases on account of some little female trouble,
which Wine of Cardui would speedily set right.
This pure Wine regulates the disordered female
organs by building up the worn out nerves and
regulating the menstrual flow. It restores the
fallen womb to its proper place. By strength

lx Canar.ea, Sonora, Mexico, Sept. IS.
(Special Correspondence of the
Kepulili: an.) This summer has w it
nessed a scene of great activity in the
mining distijcts of 8:iui.icar:tern Ari
zona and nollhern Mexico. The ex
penditures on "development work har.-e
been greater "perhaps than, in any pre-
I' vicus year and the movement for better
facllitlea and applian.-es has been gen
eral throughout the district. The
enterprise of greatest moment has bee:i
and 13 t.iat of the Car.anea ConsollUat.
Ied Cc-ppcr company, whose mines and
smelter plant, as is generally well
known, are situated In the La Cnnanea
group of mountain?, some 40 miles
south of NVo. the border city.
J An expenditure of slightly over i7.Uo
for freightage from Naso to the mines
induced the Greene people, ta build a
I standard guage road in to their plant.
I To obtain a concession for such a pro
position under the Mexican law, they
are compelled to connect with some
seaport within the republic's domain,
to Pan Jorge has been selected as th2
destination of the road. Between
Naco and the mines all of th-' location
and nearly all the construction work
has )een completed and some 20 miles
of track is laid. A 'party of engineers
is now in the field at rhe other end f
the line which will be compiets 1 from
the coast to save a long continental
i rail haul of construction material.
I The Old Dominion, another property of-
mis cc.Tipny Hirae miles irom ine
coast, will be connected with this
through line and it is chiefly to create
ah outlet for thut mine, that the work
is being pushed from thrtt end. It !

which was' previously- very crudely
handled and with itreat waste. This
means quite a saving to this plant as
a large percentage of this dust runs

cent new power hotrs?- is now in course
of construction and when completed
will e tand as one of the best plants In
the southwest. . The machinery and
building foundations are all of solid
stone masonry and the plant wiii be of
capacity equal to supplying air pres-
su:e to the smelter as well as electric
power to light the works, the camp and
al the mines. Wires are now being
strung to carry electrre rorce and
j lighting power to all of the trine,
whose shafts and main tunnels and
drifts will be provided with incan
descent lamps. The facilities for slur
dumping are being improved, the trol

Doc Lewis Is supe: intendent and El
Foltz foreman. They are drifting at

is onJy 150 feet, sinking will probably be
'the next thing in order. The Penn com
pany has a great faculty far getting
down deep in the ground and they have
been Eplendldly rewarded for their ef
forts and the expenditure of caplt il
they huve made on the Mud Hole and
Octave mines. Th"y are both magni

Lew Riley, the Groom creeR mei
chant and miner, has the contract for
sinking the rhaft on the Little Johnnie
ICO fe:t for Bell and Collins. Mr. Riley
expects to have the contract completed
by the first of October. The Little
Johnnie is a good claim and is owned
by gentlemen who are in a position fin
ancially to open it up and -make a pro
ducing mine of it. It is located in the
Hassayampa district.

It Is expected that Mr. Dugene, the
Chicago millionaire, who owns the Sul

miles below the Hillside road crossing,
will renew operations on that property
before tLe first of January. The Sul

enough to eay that I visited the peni

the first visitor seen within those walls
for many years. The officials were

fourth story. When he saw me and
heard my voice he acted like a wild

had been admitted to his cell. There
he fell on my neck and wept like

the poor fellow was able tv talk and
even then he spoke slowly and, halting

had been locked up and kept for over

In seven years: had never seen a news
paper or a magazine, nor had he ever ,

own home in California he had been a I

that letter. He referred it to the state,

caution. In exactly twenty days after
my letter aetuallly reached the state de

ane of a telephone line from Yuma to

F. Sar-Jguinrttl. Frank Blaisdell ,R. P. i
H. Laney. F. H. Brads-haw and R. tf.

unnecessary to dwell upon the import
ance of the construction of this line,
which will -bring- Yuma in. instant
communication with points from 25 to
100 miles distant, located In the live and
promising mining districts of Yuma

credit for thir enterprise. The line
will be put hrough without delay.

"Didn't you know Gates? Why,

all the old traps the seniors had to sell

when they came in with the September

that he would buy anything let him
name his own price.
"I remember with awe the hush and
solemnity that attended the final ser

president began. 'Young gentlemen,
members of the -graduating -alass." But
somehow they did not set my heart a

came the question of the carpet.
