After getting off the boat we had'quite a long ride up the river on a targe.'Tob.'jcco is very hard to get out; here. I saw some of the fellows get .as much as four shillings ,for a package ot cigarettes. It is kind of hard to write letters out here as tne most interesting things that happen, we are not allowed to write about. If you send me parcels just send candy and a little cake as we cannot get either here. We have had no mail as yet, but are looking forward to receiving' some any day now. _ The weather has been very good up till now but it is getting colder and we will soon- need our fur coats.

The following letter lias be^n received by Arch. Jtitchell, of Coaldale, from Jim Mitchell, who is at the front: ^ I Had a verj- nice experience the other morning, absolutely new.

The Versatile Phoiipgraph I^rery Feature that Means Perf^iet Eiijoyment OME good pKotiographs specialise upon one advantage, sqme upon anotKer.

TKSsit Has been done ^ the fd^Kest decree in the Phonograph That is the reason the McLagan has bdkn called the most complete phonograph ever made. First and foremost, nothing has been spared to produce that �woriderfuUjJ rich, mellow, velvety tone which can come onl^i. from  sound chamber of Wood delicately\^ ^d correctly shaped, and insulated jroro siirrounding parts. Reproducer, tone-arm and i sound chamber ere harmonized perfectly. The result is tone unsufjsassed. Tone Contref-The control of the director over his orchestra-"from forte to pianistinio"-seenis but a motion of hi� baton. You can (imilarl^ , conduct a great orchestra at will by means of tK| McLaftan's sensitiva tona control; � Plays all Recoirda-^Th� commonplace phonograph too often limits jlou to one kind of record. The McLagaru opens up the entire field of �musical reproduction in.disc records without any extra attachment. But a slight alteration in the reproducer is needed to adjust for a different type of record. On the McLagan you can plaji^ any disc record made. Otiier Features of Completeness-the automatic stop-no iMorrp or jumping up to preOent. costly records getting scratched-at the right moment it stops -itself; the one-hand automatic top support means that �only one hand is required to change' the records; the- recordjiling systeni means quick fndin^. / McLagan Cakineta are the aristocrats of artisdc Period Designs, including "tlie William ' and Maty, Queen Anne, Chippendale, Adam, Louis XVI, etc. Ead'i is an original interpretation, a work of art such as is chosen to be in keeping with, and to enhance, the most jinely furnished room in the land. Each is an unsurpassable example of true and sincere craftsmanship, showing its superiority in flawless, cabinef work, fine lines, and perfect surfaces. In e-Jerj) sense it is the most beautiful of phonographs. Accept this as a cordial invitation from your KjfcLagan dealer to hear and inspect the Aristocrat of'Phonographs.
