States Consul this pore, has passed through liis the past montlrr-records ot seventy-five cars of lead bullion which is being shipped from Trail by the Consolidated Mines and Smelter company, oE that place, to the; East Chicago Refinery. AfteV the silver and gold values have been extracted, the lead is re- shippe'd to the Canadian munitions commission at Montreal, where it is distributed to the different" munition factories to be made into war muni- tion for use at the front. These seventy-five call's of bullion represent a total value of or per car. About a year ago, the territory of-the Fernie con- sular district was-enlarged so, as to take in Trail, Rossland and 'Green-, wood, which has thrown a great deal more business through the Fernie of- fice. During the calender year, 1915, there were iuvbices passed through the office, and up to date this year, there lias been a total of invoices passed by Consul Alger, of 2131. With all the improvements and ad- ditions that nave been added to the Consolidated plant at Trail, that in- stitution is not able to treat all the ores, that- are turned out in South Bast..

The huge crowd who witnessed the show last night were unanimous in pronouncing it one of the best ever seen in Lethhridge.

The finest Christmas Present for ANY MusiCQ'Real Charm! Music, PERSONALLY RENDERED, is what the Player-Piano furnishes. The elusive charm of in- dividuality is in every performance. To get the utmost satisfaction a Player-Piano can offer, you should own a Mason Risch, a Henry Herbert, or a Homer Player-Piano, instruments de- signed with such consummate skill and built with such painstaking care that they ever uphold the name "Mason Risch" and all that the name im- plies, instruments which embody in surpassing measure all of those qualities that make ownership of a high-grade Player-Piano desirable. LET YOUR CHRISTMAS PLAYER-PIANO BE A MASON RISCH, A HENRY HERBERT OR A HOMER, A LUXURIOUS PRESENT, THE FINEST GIFT YOU COULD MAKE! YOU WILL BE VERY GLAD IN YEARS TO COME, THAT YOU HAVE MADE THE INVESTMENT. A SMALL CASH PAYMENT, takes it to your home any time you may desire. We will take your old piano in exchange and illow you every dollar it is worth!
