RIFFLE tolla bis experience with cough and colds that load to nrrousna and debility. Colds are often aggravated dur ing the Summer because Inactive bowels and a stnmach out of order are prime causes in keep ing a cold from getting well. Pe-ru-na has very beneficial laxative quali ties that neutral ize such eondfa Mr. Lewis Riffle. tions. Its tonic Ingredients tone op the system, and thus invigorate the atomaeh's functions to normal activ ity, a Mr. Riffle's experience Is especially Interesting- at. this time of the year be cause it shows the close relationship there is between a nervous breakdown and a neglected eoM. Pe-ru-tia ghOOld be kept In the home at all times, that a rold upon Rg first appearance may be treated promt. tly and successfully. This often saves money and time, and what Is more important, a great donl of vlinlliy. Mr. Rim, of 7T.S Oautenbcln Ave.. Portland, Ore., writes: "I have fnund Pe-ru-na a most remarkable rrudl clne for building up the tp-stom and for curing coughs and cold. "I took It for four Ttrr-ofca a few months ago when I wai all run down nervous and debilitated, and It ipjickly restored my health.

ALLOUEZ Within a lew Weekg, tin.- company will be shipping the greatest portion "i us oupul to th.- Tamarack No. mill, whi. h mill was recently a. nulled hv the Lake Milling, RmaRMgJ and Refining Company. This mill has not eegg op.-raied for .sometime, and during the past year, 11 has been (oniplet.-ly ov.-i hauled and remodeled, so that now th extraction at this mill should be gg good as that ..t ggj mill on the lake. The capacity of this Tamarack No. J mill is about i,iet t.ms ef recti daily, which is ghoul the present ret of shipments ..I Alloaeg, However, Just ;is soon as this mill goes int.. commission it will allow for an increase in production and all in excess of ,ttg tons will be shipped to the AIIOUes-4 'entennial mill at Point Mills as heretofore. This latter mill has been working t . . capacity for the paal few weeks. In fact, last Sunday owing to Ihg a. cumula tion of rock in the bins, it was found necessary to operate tin- mill on that day, notwithstanding the greatest efficien cy possible is being obtained as the mill was completely overhauled through the cessation ,,l milling operations kUrf fall or dntitig the strike. The congestion of roeg shipments is caused hv the steady increase from all the mines shipping to this mill, which includes Allouez, Centennial, Superior and Hancock, and an oci aalonnl shipment from Pranklin. .lust as soon as Alloueg'g lock has been diverted to the Tamara.'k N". mill. Isle Royal will ship a portion of it rock to this mill as well as allow for increased shipments from Ihe other mines. The hulk of the available milling facilities will hg utilized by Isle II. .yah- and HgltCOCk, This change in Alloues'a rock shipments means eonsid arable to Allouez, as it will mean a saving of at least five cuts a ton in the freight . barges, or nearly a third of a . nl a pound in the coete. It m. ans an Increase in earn ings of practically jo cent g share gnnually, Allouea'g netg ai the present :ii In the neighborhood of )1 cents a pound. This estimate is based on Hie costs fog Ihe first six month of ittt, when condition at the property w.-ih normal and w hen the mine produced 1,8 1 0.000 pounds, erg figure unit if rock shipments from this property were in- rraeed M, whiih is very probable. Allouez would he pro ducing approximately t,gggtgg pounds annually, anil with meUri at 14 ems and the 11 cent 1 .(, the profit would he about $::.imi pet share annually. CALUMET & HECLA Installation ef the machinery in the new No. I regrinding plant is prugieggggg IgpHRy, and a portion of this plant wili ko hStO Open t Ian by the first of July, according to pies, ui llans. This portion .. the N... r.-grinding plant, which will ,lls' gO in'" COmm iOSion, will handle the tailings from the lb. la mill which have heretofore gone out in the wash, as only the Calumet branch of ihe Calumet gj He. la mill w is connected nita. the No, 1 regwggitggj plant. I he dredge anil balance ol the No. i.gtindlng plant will ptobablv gjot t,r reggy for duty until sometime in August. This No. J plant will be a model of const met ion and efficiency in Sgtraetien as well as the low cost in b. nulling the product . The dredge whb h is to handle the immense OMBBga of tailings available will I per.

RAY CONSOLIDATED The gunrtcrly rrport of this company was the best in its history and showed earnings of t77.444. These figures were arrived at gp figuring 1 1 pgM ,,n hltH g u u pet pound. These earnings were nr.!.4S0 In excess of the bond interest and pggggM dividend disinirsement. TU n.panv milled 7I4,0.i! tons of ore which made an eutpfil of 7..'.",4,:i4d pounds of copper. In addition g ibis, 4,1 of Cappef trert obtained from ores shipped dire. ( t ,t, gnggtter, making the total production of the ompanv I7.7'i7.::74 nils for the Uarle, ending Match lent, Thla output was produced at a net cost of MM cents per bound. This in, hides a I.", cent per ton charge lor ihe Mftreggam of mining develotment coats. These costs are etm anived at after deducting the total earnings of the '"""ad gg well i,n all other misellaneous earnings. The improved conditions at the mill brought about a beit.r recovery and an extraction or St. was made dur-"- th.- past iptartf-r as compared with (T..77 the previoua eaarter, While this was the average recovery.

I nderrnund developments for the ntiarter amounted to ;!t.S:L' feet, making the total developments to date pggagj root, or more than 77 miles. Th. total amount ..f copper -11 band both sold and unsold at the end of the rpiarter was " '.II 111 pounds, and that portion unsold was inventoried on a basis of 14 I.
