Tlie iJerforuuuicie of the Roscians Monday night was ft melody of merry mirth. There was catchy uinsic, ttmefully rendered, good singing that pleasd the lover of light operatic airs, bubbling humor that^ cauglit with the audience, clever acting tliat gripped t^ie interest, a bevy of chorus girls that added animation and attractiveness to the presentation of "El Capi-tan" hy the Roscian Oix}ra Co. It was easily the best oi)eratic performance ever pxit on in Lethbridge i and the largo (Uidience fully evi-I deuced its appreciation. Manager i Cranston is to be congratulated on i his excellent company. Claude ! Amsden, the leading comedian, was irresistable in the role of El Capitan, and he was ably assisted by Jack Leslie, the second comedian, in the fun making. Miss Nola, the dark, bewitching prima donna, was exceptionally good. Hazel Daven^wrt, the frolicsome, rolly-polly soubrette was a daisy. She acted well and sang well and did not Qverdo the part of the lovelorn maiden. Hilliard Campbell and John Dewey are not to be overlooked by any means, and F. W. Walters was the highly pleasing singer as of yore. The character of "Pozzo, the Chamberlain," was well interpreted by Geo. B. Jackson. The other parts were well taken and everybody went out from the hall hugely satisfied. MAGNIFICENT BUILDING Tbe Hudson's Bay Company's New ftore Will be One of the Finest St. Monica's Gives a Good Time. St. Monica's Guild held a lively and successful fish pond festival at the rectory last Thursday evening. The affair was well attended and passed off most delightfully. Youthful nimrods did the grand in fine shape at the fish pond, while those of more mature years found the social and musical features very agreeable and entertaining. The programme included solos by Mr. A. W. Hings, Mr. W. G. KUner, and the Rev. J. S. Chivera, a duet by Mr. Harrop and Mr. Kilner, and selections by the quartette consisting of Messrs. Harrop, Hings, KilnerandCunningham. A c6llation, which was by no means slighted, was one of the events of the evening. This feature was looked after by Mesdames Chivers and Sherlock; Mrs. Rogers was to blame for the good musical program, while Mr. Robinson and Mrs. Conybeare furnished bait at the fish pond. The financial recapitulation showed a balance in favor of the guild of $32.00. Celebrated 70th Birthday. On Saturday evening, November 2oth, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geoige Moore, a very enjoyable eveiiing 'Was spen*, the occasion being the celebration of the 70th birthday of Mr. Siunner, father of Mrs. Moore, the charming hostess of the very happy occasion. There was a large number of friends, including the relatives of Mr. Sumner, present to extend their congratulations to that venerable gentleman, on attaining his three score years and ten, the allotted age of man. The evening was very pleasantly spent with music and singing, until the midnight hour, when a very dainty and ajjpetising lunch was served, consisting of all the good things of the season, which were very many. Mr. Sumner was the recipient of many valuable presents, which go to show the high esteem in which he is held by his family and friends. Military Euchre Party. Mrs. Reeve has a happy faculty for entertaining brilliantly and thoroughly, and her military euchre party on Wednesday evening added one more to her laurels as a hostess. The wiles of beauty, the shafts of Avit, the subtle points of law, the logic of demagogues, all were assembled to do battle for the flags, and the inevitable result was an exciting and enjoyable time. At the cessation' of hostilities each battleground became the scene of a verjr dainty "souper-a-quatre." Following this, a short musical program was the climax of a very happy gathering. The prize of the evening went to Mrs. Hemelryk; Mrs. Geo. Rogers taking the lady's "lone band" prize and Mr, �. A. Cunningham the gentleman's. Last week the Herald gavfe a siimmary of the year's building progress in Lethbridge, and :we think it would be a siife wager to lay odds that no towm of the size in Canada could beat it. Next year shows early indications of even greater building progress. Foremost in the plans for 1906 is the magnificent new Hudson's Bay Co, store building. Manager E. M. Rylands received the plans for this structure on Monday. A pen picture of such a building as the Hudson's Bay people are to erect here, no matter how elaborate, would be entirely inadequate, and could not do justice to the structure itself by any means, constructed as it is on the most improved metropolitan system as regards space economy and general equipment. However, we shall endeavor to give a brief outline of the new premises. The store will be a brick block 63 X 100 feet, two storeys high, with full basement built of stone and containing cement floore. There will be 55 feet of plate glass windows, extending both on east and north sides. A tine large entrance at the front or east side leads to the dry goods side on the right and the grocery department on the left. The dry goods side has 60 feet of silent salesmen, with the latest wardrobes in the rear for the accommodation of ready-made clothing. The office will be located about two-thirds way from the front in centre of store, and will command a good view of every department. The cash carriers will converge in front of office, where a commraious parcel department will be installed. Seats are conveniently planned for customers, and the scheme ' laid out for couuters, silent salesmen, etc. will greatly facilitate the work of the clerks. The liquor store will be at rear of building, facingnorth, with botthng department below. ^On the second floor are dressinakin|g department, crockeiy department, reser\'e stock room, lavatory and cloak room. The basement will contain packing room, store rooms, boiler- room, lavatory,, etc. A large hoist is arranged for conveying stock from basement to top floor. The store will be lighted by six arc lights and 50 incandesceuts, and steam heat will prevail. The sanitaiy arrangemenis are perfect. Catch basins are arranged for in basement to facilitate cleaning out, and a burner for consuming all rubbish. John Woodman, of Winnipeg, is the architect. The present store building will be moved before work starts on the new store. The building will be one of the finest in the west and a tribute to the constantly increasing prosperity of Lethbridge. The Old Boys Meet. Thirty-five old timers were present at the Pemmiran Club's meeting in ^he Lethbridge hotel last night.'  Much routine business was transacted, arid Chas. Harris, of Macleod, and Norman McKeuzie and Job Reed, of the city, were admitted as new members. This patriarchal organization now has a membership of 161. The following officers were elected: President, Geo. Houk; Vice-president, W. Henderson; sec'y-treas., F. Kenny; executive committee, Robt. Sage; J. Stovall, Jno. Kenny, Tom McNabb, Wm. Oliver,. Jno. Bruce and W.Lamb; auditors, Robt. Sage and John Kenny. It was decided that a presen tuition be given to E. T. Saunders, who was leaving city and who was the club's sec'y-treasnrer since it's organization in 1889. The three first officers were detiiiled to select present and the president was instructed to call a public meeting for the presentation. It was arrangtxi to give a ball and supper at at early date. Messrs. Harris, Oliver and McNabb were appointed a committee to draft set of bylaws to submit to executive committee. The club's bank balance shoATO to be $102.85. aao:o.ox>jQ:o:o:o:o:o:o:cxo:Q:o:o:Q:o:Q.oiox):o:Q:o:^^^ CHOICE XXX ONTARIO WINTER 3) IN BARRELS AND BOXES new  0roceile$ %^ Raisins, Currants,'Peels, Fi^s, Dates, Jam,^Canned Goods, Etc.

The yomig Conservatives of Lethbridge are getting busy, and are bound to put their organization on a good working and result producing footing. At a meeting held in the labor hall Thursday evening they somewhat revised and added to their bylaws and transacted other business for the general good of the club and the cause which it espouses. The regular semi-monthly meetings will be enlivened during the winter months by a series of debates upon timely subjects which will be phosen by the cpmmiittees. At the Thursday evening meeting these officers were elected:-President, Dr. J. Stewart; vice-president, C. K. Vahey; secretary-Treasurer, Elmo Fraser. It is always well to see the young men taking an active interest in matters of this kind-no matter what particular blend of politics they are out to boost. They are sure to profit by ho'h the meetings and the debates an*! get a certain iuEide knowledge or the politics of thfe country Vant should lead to fair-mindedness and self-reliance when important issues confront them as electors. Success to the Conservative Club and all similar organizations.

There were seven cattle in the bunch. One beast was-killed outright, while the others had broken legs or were otherwise fatally injured. The accident was unavoidable. Biit the injured cattle were left for three or four days before they were put out of'their misery. , There is no excuse for this. We understand that it is^ihe duty of the section men to look iafter auch occurrences and that the matter was reported to them. We do not know u^n whom the actual responsibility lies, but we do know that to leave poor, helpless dumb animals in a state of excruciating misery for_ several dayis when their condition is known is an act of wanton cruelty that should be tolerated in no civilizm community.
