LARGE Latest figures compiled by the Herald from board of trade reports, figures gathered by banks and other authoritative sources ' show that shipments .of grain from the district centering on Lethbridge since the beginning of the 1017 crop year on Sept. j 1 last have aniounted to over seven-' leen and three rjuarter m'illion bushels, while farm.ers have ill store more than a million and a half bushels, mak- \ ing a total crop already moved yOf j about 19,2.50,U00 bushels, with four months of the crop year still to come. These figures indicate a return of about ?40,000,000 to the district on the crop already marketed. It is expected that shipments for' tho next four months will be fairly large, and that the total crop of last'year in the Lethbridge railway district will aggregate around the 21,000,000 bushel mark. This Is considerably-lower than the 1916 figures, but taWng it altogether, it is a very satisfactory ..return. lERlEOF" STORY OF MA EMPLOY OOR QUICK RELIABLE SERVICE G^r big furniture van and auld van insures careful handling with no jarring: or scratching your piano or furniture.

THE HICK-SEHL HARDWARE CO., LIMITED TmmiiiiiiiiiiiiinrrTTTTTTTmrmTTimi^ bwer 13 To-day's Chalmefs has a remdrkabl^ engine. It' is a great engine because it has conquered low-grade gasoline. Many other fine engines are falling off in performance because of poor gasoline. The great Chalmers engine thrives on it; ^ ^ Chalmers owners get such spirited performance as used to be obtainable only from good gasoline-and only in summer -weather. The Chalmers is. powerful, alert, flexible. On cold days, it gets started quickly. There is no waiting to "warm up." It uses any grade pf gasoline and turns it into high power. The reason for this is clear. In the Chalmers engine, gasoline of any grade is vaporized to the last drop. It goes into the cylinders hot and rare, just right for perfect concibustion. None is trapped and cooled on the way. So, raw gasoline is not carried to the cylinders. , _ For, the great Chalmers has two features. One, the "hot spot," breaks up the gasoline into the finest vapor. The other, the " ramshorn " manifold, carries the vapor directly to the cylinders. Not a short bend, corner or crevice in this manifold. No place for gas to cool... No *' condenser " for raw gasoline. You can see these features and understand them. Come down, by all means, and let us show and prove this great engine.. Drive the new Chalmers yourself. If you are looking for high-grade performance in an economical, business-like car, you will be delighted with today's Chalmers. If you are a critic of motor performance take a turn at the wheel and let the great Chalmers engine tell its own story.
