An Important Factor in the Hap
piness of His Grandchildren.
There are families where Grandpa's
visit is looked forward to with delight
and expectancy. Grandpa's coming
means fun and frolic and enchanting
stories. But there are other families
where grandpa's visit is the burden of
the year. The children dread it because
they know it will put a stop to their
romping. The parents dread it because
it will disorganize the household, every
member of which must keep step wilb
the slow shuffling tread of age, and sub
ordinate duties and pleasures to the
capricious whims of second childhood.
The difference in these two old men is
simply a difference of health. The one
old man is hale and hearty, enjoys his
food, sleeps soundly, and keeps his grip
on public affairs. The other old man is
weak and feeble, his .ippetite and diges
tion are poor, his sleep is unsound, he
has no interest in life or affairs save as
his personal comfort may be affected.
Healthy old age, whether in man or
woman, is largely a question of sound
stomach and pure, rich blood. To pre
serve this condition nature ncnerally
needs some assistance, in order to 5

rid of the accumulations of waste, effete

STRENGTH AND THE STOMACH.
No man can be strong when the stom
ach is "weak." The body, and every
organ of it, depends upon the stomach
for nutrition. This nutrition is supplied
by food which must be properly digested
before it can be assimilated. When the
stomach and the other organs of diges
tion and nutrition are diseased, the food
eaten is imperfectly digested, and there
is a reduction of the nutrition necessary
for the sustenance of the
body. This loss of nutri
tion soon shows itself in
general feebleness or in
the " weakness" of one or
more of the organs most
affected. Thus it is that
indigestion often results in
disease of organs remote
from the stomach, the liv
er, heart, kidneys, etc.
becoming "weak." So,
also, when the diseased
stomach is cured by
"Golden Medical Discov
ery " the diseases of other
organs which were caused
by the diseased stomach
are also cured.
" I feel that I would be
doing an injustice to you
if I did not send you a
statement of my case,"
writes Mrs. David W.
Guice, of Hamburg,
Franklin Co., Miss. "I
had liver complaint and
that I ate disagreed with
me. I suffered all the
time with swimming in my
head; heart beat too fast;
my feet and hands were
cold all the time; did not
sleep well at all; was able
to go aliout very little. I
commenced to use Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical

I could legin to get about very well.
Have been doing my work ever since,
except washing. Feel better than I
have for several years. I would recom
mend Dr. Pierce's medicines to all who
are troubled as I was. I am now sixty
one years old. and I thank you most
kindly for the happy relief and cure."
If you feel weak and run down ; if
your stomach is disordered or dis
eased ; if there is heart "trouble," liver
"trouble," or kidney "trouble" if your
blood is "thin and sluggish, begin the

MINES AND MINING
BIG MINING SALE.
Wadded and McNulty Sell Their Green
Mountain Group South of Prescott
for a Good Sum.
A mining deal was consummated
this morning whereby Waddell and
McXulty dispose of tbeir Green
Mountain group of mines south of
Prescott to Pittsburg capitalists, the
price being $75,000.
The deal was negotiated by W. C.
Bashford. The purohaseis are oil
men and are new in this section.
The Bradshaw Mountains the Scene of
Immediate Future Development.
Some Good Properties and
There is no district in Arizona where
there arc greater possibilities in mining
than in the Bradshaw mountains and
particularly that portion through
which the old Bradshaw lead lies.
It is now known as the Wild Flower
ledge, on which there are five loca
tions. Two of these, the Sabronje
and Consolidated, show the heaviest
liodies of ore. J. R. Liston has been
doing some work on these and on the
Sabronje there is a fine showing of
copper siilphurets, a recent test of
which pave 15 per cent, copper anil
good values in gold. This is essen-
tiallv a concentrating proposition.
The ore is from three to five feet wide
and that at only thirty feet deep be
low the surface. If this mine was
inv when' else it would command at
tention as a copper mine. The gold
values are from S3 to S100. On the
Consolidated, the adjoining claim,
there is a shaft 28 feet deep that
shows a ledge from four to five feet
wide of solid black ore with consider
able lead. There is so much water
that it cannot be handled without ma
chinery, and with development would
furnish water as well as ore.
Lee Thomas and Oi'lauder Byrnes
have gone to work on the Contention
with every prospect of taking out con-
sidrrable ore aud developing a fine
mine. They have a depth of 165 feet !
and have fine Mack sulphide ore. The
tioys have also located a molvlxlenum
mine on an adjoining location with J.
R. Liston. who has found the metal

Greatest Benefit to the Mining In

Operation of a Plant for
Reduction of Ores.
The Journal-Miner is reliably in
formed that a contract has been enter

Val Verde Copper company by which
the two companies will hereafter work
in harmony in the reduction of ores of
this county, and particularly those of
the Big Bug district, the firm of
Douglass, Lacey & Co., of New York,
having financed the venture. The
necessary changes in the Val Verde
smelting plant will be made im
mediately and a large concentrating
plant will be added bv the Douglass.

DEAR!" complained Mrs
ay-down-blue, meeting her
frivnd, airs. Cheery u. -heart, on the
way home. "I do hate to go to mj
house. It is so lonely!"
"What has become of your ideas?"
questioned Mrs. Cheery-up-heart, in
"They are every one gone," moaned
Mrs. Way-down-bhie, and the tears
filled her eyes. "Not a single one ia
left to speak to me."
"How very sad," returned Mrs.
Cheery-up-heart, somewhat perplexed.
"Did you feed them regularly?"
"Feeding ideas! Who ever heard
of such nonsense!" exclaimed Mrs.
W'ay-down-blus, drying har ayes in
"I would aa soon starve myself aa
starve my ideas." replied Mrs. Cheery-up-heart,
thoughtfully. "Do you re
member, neighbor, when we first set
up housekeeping we were fitted out
with the same number of ideas. I
had six and you had half a doeen."
"It doean't seem possible I ever
had so many as half a dozen ideaa, all
at once," sighed Mrs. Way-down-blue;
"and now they are every one gone."
"You might recall them?"
"I have shouted until 1 am deaf and
dumb, but they won't come back, and
if they did, I couldn't keep them over
"Where is your memory?" aaked
Mrs. Cheery-ap-heart, kindly.
"Oh, I have the poorest memory in
the world," returned Mrs. Way
, down-blue, dolefully. "Nothing ever
S stays in it unless it be unpleasant
things I wish to gat rid of and they
stick like burrs. The happy, pleas
ant ideas run out at one gate while I
am crowding them in at the other."
"Do you mean to say that you have
no control over your ideaa?" aaked
Mrs. Cheery -up-haart, vary muah as
tonished. "I never mean to work them too
hard, hut just let them some and go
as they will. No one could have been
more indulgent to their ideaa than
t h iwe Keen " and at this Mra War-
down-blue burst into tears.
"Perhaps I can help you to recall
some of these happy ideaa," said Mrs.
Cheery-up-heart, brightly. "Do you
not recollect the roll of beautiful
stuffs, velvets and silks with gold and
spangled tissues which our good
Mother Tongue left with us to clothe i
"Oh, bother Mother Tongne!" cried !
Mrs. Wav-down-blue. "I never had '
' the patience to open that great roll." I
"Then you have never known what
fun it is fitting out one's ideas in neat
little jackets and gowns. Tou should
have seen one that came to me in a
friend's letter this morning. It was
"Oh, you may fuss if yon like," re
torted Mrs. Way-down-blue. "I shall
not take the time to make up thinga
when I can borrow oi my neighbors
or send round to the second-hand
shop. I always tack on something
blue so people will know they are my
ideas, and they run their errands just
"But, my dear," urged Mrs. Cheery-up-heart.
"it is useless to send abroad
ideas like ragamuffins, for they receive
so little consideration. Ideas are like
people: when they are well dressed
they feel so muen happier and more
agreeable, and they can travel round
so much better."
"Do ideas travel: that ia, outside
the village?" questioned Mra. Way-down-blue,
opening her eyea.
"Ideas are great traveler, and
when witty and clever enough they
often go round the world. Stop and
dine with me, Mrs. Way-down-hlue.
and I will introduce you to some of
these clever ideas. Tou may like to
take a few of them home with you."
Being sadly in need of entertain
ment. Mrs. Way-down-blue willingly
consented, and was presently amazed
at the number of gentle, well-behaved
ideas waiting upon Mrs. Cheery-up-heart
in her own home. So bright
and pleasant they were that Mrs.
Way-down-Mur was even in danger of
forgetting that her name waa Blue

strange and curious scenes from for

for much worthy conversation. The
other guests furnished rich entertain
ment of jnnjrs and stones, while all
win provided with jests and repartee
that flashed back and forth so rapidly
Mrs. Way-down-blue waa fairly das
sled with their brilliance.
Strang-e to relate, Mrs. Way-down-blue's
own ideas now came flockinir
back to her, and she opened her
mouth once to speak, but perceiving-
that her ideas in rag-(red, ill - fitting -
jackets would be received with sur -
prise by the company, the poor lady

remained miserably silent.
"What were you about to ay. my

turned to her hospitably.
"I was thinking," returned Mrs.

a drop of water. Thwv have been
found in a bit of coal or even cnrling
in merry wreaths out of the spout of
a tea kettle. Some men have taken
great pains to throw neta over the
stars to catch ideas, and one learned
philoaopher found an extraordinary

"Ia there nothing more yon can tell

Way-down-blue, with gT owing inter

"I see one shining is your eyes

Otresnwafaas. A few years ago, while Eobert
Stewart waa governor of Missouri,
a steamhoatman was brought in from
the penitentiary as an applicant for
a pardon, says the Indianapolis
Sentinel. He was a large, powerful
fellow, and when the governor looked
at him he seemed strangely affected.
He scrutinized him long and closely.
Finally he signed the document that
restored the prisoner to liberty. Be
fore he handed it to him he said:
"You will commit some other crime,
and be in the penitentiary again, I
fear." The man solemnly promised
he would not. The governor looked
doubtful, mused a few minutes and
said: "Tou will go back on the river
and be a mate again, I suppose?"
The man replied that he would.
"Well, I want you to promise me one
thing," resumed the governor. "I
want you to pledge your word that
when you are mate again you will '
never take a billet of wood in your
hand and drive a sick boy out of a
bunk to help you load your boat
on a stormy night." The steamboat
man said he would not, and inquired
what the governor meant by asking
him such a question. The governor
replied: "Because some day that
boy may become a governor, and you
may want him to pardon you for a
crime. One dark, stormy night,
many years ago, you stopped your
boat on the Mississippi river to take
on a load of wood. There was a
boy on board who was working his
passage from New Orleans to St. i
Louis, but he waa very sick of fever ;
and was lying in a bunk. You had
plenty of men to do the work, but j
you went to that boy with a stick
of wood in your hand and drove him
with blows and curse out into the
wretched night and kept him toiling
like a slave until the lpad was com
pleted. I was that boy. Here is
your pardon. Never again be guilty
of such brutality." The man, cow
ering and hiding his face, went out
without a word. What a noble re
venge that waa, and what a lesson to
