What is Going on in a Alining
Tho Range News fays : A force of ex

went out to tlio Oregon mine, where
the work of (inking tho shaft is being
vigorously prosecuted. Iho manage
ment expect by the end of next wok
to reach tho 10'J foot level anJ will
then put on additional men to run
t annels each way on the ledge, while
another force continues sinking. No
effort will be spared to devolop the
mino as rapidly as possible. Three
loa is of heavy mine timbers havo been
sent out from Willcox this wsek for
uao in the shaft. Work has com
menced on the road to connect the
mine with tho new townsite of L&ub
City, and a company boarding house
and other buildings aro to b3 erected
We arc imformed that tho stock of
the company is being rapidly taken
both by local busine-s men and out
side invjptors. The mine U sl.cwing
up well and all believe that the long
looked for opening up of Dos Cahtz s
camp is now assured.
Besides tho Concolidcd Mines com

Still More Counterfeiting.
The Secret Service has unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a targe quantity of bogu bills, which are
so cleverly executed that the average
person would never suspect them of be
ing spurious. Things of great value are
always selected by counterfeiters for im
itation, notably the celebrated Hostel
ler's Stomach JBitters, which has many
imitators but no equals for indigestion,
dyspepsia, constipation, nervousness and
general debility. The Bitters sets things
right in the stomach, and uhen the
stomach is in good order it makes good
blood and plenty-of it. In this manner
the Bitters get at the seat of strength
and vitality, and restore vigor to the
weak and debilitated. Beware of coun
terfeiters when buying.
