Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription was
devised to make these three periods safe
and painless by restoring to vigorous
health the organs involved. It soothes,
heals, nourishes. It gives Nature just
the help it needs. It is the only prepara-
tion of its kind devised by a regularly
graduated physician and skilled spec-
ialist in the diseases of women.

AN ALL-THE-YEAR RESORT.
The original vein was discovered by
an old Colorado miner named Ripley
who has been for five years in the Sierra
Atadres and this is the first rich vein he
has struck. ,
Ripley sold out, his claim for $500and
the cost of denouncement, and the pur-
chaser the same day disposed of his in-
terest f, >r $3.000. r
Mr. Phillips is a stockman and knows
nothing of mining, but he has ad’ aueed
the money to a miner with whom he
became acquainted to begin the devel5"
opment of his claim, and it is proposed
that just as soon as development work
has progressed sufficiently to demon
strate th** value of the property a stock
company will be organized or else they
will sell out the mine for a big round
There is still » great scarcity of pack
mules around CasasGrandes. It is due
to the great number of animals
now being employed in packing ore
from the mines. Many of tbe mine
owners are shipping ore as fast as pos
sible for fear bad weather may set in
and delay its transportation, others
have opened up new properties and be
gnmregnlar shipments of ore. These
are the chief causes of t he large number
of pack animals now in use and the
present demand for more.
During the past week the shipments
of ore to Casas Grandes were a fourth
larger than the week before, showing
the extensive mining operations that
are now i eing carried on Some of
this ore comes from the Pilares district-
