Torreon, ilex., Feb. 7 It seems prac
tically assured that Torreon is to have
a large zinc smelter within the next 12
months. It Is stated on good authority
that attorney Alfredo Rodriguez has
a concession from the federal govern
ment to build a plan in this city with
a capacity of from 800 to 1000 tons of
ore per day.
The capital of 500,000 has been
nearly all subscribed by capitalists and
men interested 4n zinc mines in the
state of Coahuila. Some of the largest
zinc mines in Mexico are to b? found
in the vicinity of Torreon, but they
have been idle for the past few years
on account of high freight rates and
tariffs to the United States and Europe.

There have been shows here with

as good as Gus Wineburg and Richard
F. Carroll. When either of them Is be

do but laugh and when they are both
working together fit is a scream.
Miss Jessie Stoner is the prima
donna and she looks like a high school
girl, fresh in her youthful beauty, and
she sings like a bird, though her
voice is not very strong. "Mother Did"
is a beautiful bit of singing by Miss
Stoner, the Arlee Easton of the com
pany. Whatever mother did. Miss
Stoner does It better, aided by a com

"The Alaskan" has been transformed
from the highly artistic comic opera

In khe transformation, hilarity has
