The factory that has been started by the Lethbridge Jewelry Company is a decidedly interesting plafe to visit. G-eo. Ingham, merly with the Burgess Co., of. To- ronto, has charge and comes to the city as one of the most expert jewel- ry manufacturers in Canada. The company are at present operating at departments where rings, lockets, brooches, etc., are cast, rolled or plated. To observe the manner in the moulds are made and the gold cast is very interesting. It is the intention of the company to es- tablish visiting days after 'the holi- day season so that ladies may see how their jewelry is manufactured The company are putting in an equip- ment that will take care of the retail trade of the entire district. Mr is to be congratulated on hi? enterprise, and with two retail stores and a wholesale and manufacturing establishment he should be in a posi tion to supply the people and retail ers of Southern Alberta with reliable: goo-ds at right prices. He has a thor oughly competent optician on the stafi who is kept on the hustle. Gray Esi? So "2. d.
