EDW. ULSETH PHONE 7-1R At a meeting of the Calumet Ski club, held this week, it was decided to hold a loeul tournament for ski riders, on Sunday afternoon, January 13, on the club's new hill near tho Did Colony ocation. Suitable prizes are being offered for ompetitlon, and a large entry is prom. ed. The tournament is to be a try out for the members of the club and others who may care to take part. Karly In February it Is promised to hold a ski tournament that will be open to every ski rider and jumper In the country. This Is to Le made a sort of national affair, and riders are ex- ected here from all parts of Minne sota, the iron country, Wisconsin, and other points. Calumet Is going to offer prizes of such a substantial nature that some of the best ski riders in the world will bo tempted to come here. If this contem plated step is carried out. and success fully, there id reason to believe that next year the local club will make a bid for the national championship ncetlng. The club now lias one of the finest hills in the country for the sport. It measures approximately 300 feet in length and has all the necessary na tural advantages. Members of the club have been out during the past week testing the hill, and Jumps of 75 feet are easily made. Tho Calumet Tost office has Just passed through the most successful month Is the history of the off ice. l)ur ing the month of December there was sold from the office window a total of H, 34 1.12 In stamps, stamped envelopes, post cards, etc. This total is irrespee tlve of the Issuance of both domestic and foreign orders, which totalled lip Into the thousands of dollars. The- fiscal year of the post office ends In March, and there Is good rea son to believe that it will be a big business year. It Is exected that the revenue will be upwards o $30,000 for the year. i "'.;.(' MUCH CHRISTMAS MUSIC AT SALVATION ARMY HALL AUTOMOBILE STATISTICS. 37 YEARS IN BUSINESS Merchants & Miners Bank CALUMET.

AN ACCOUNT MAY Bli OPENED WITH ONfc DOLLAR Big Increast in Demand for Moderate Priced Cars. One of the most interesting tabula tions of the year In connection with the automobile industry has Just been made public by the Association of Li censed Automobile Manufacturers. It Is a careful compilation of figures rec orded with the A. I A. M. for each year since 1903, ami gives tho average price of automobiles for each year since that time. Tho figures show an Increase in the price of cars from 19"3 until 1907. and since that time a gradual decline. This Is not the result, it Is stated, of any radical reduction In the price of cars, but has been brought about hv the great Increase in the manufacture and sale of machines selling at $1,500 or less. In the early days, a car at less than $2,0(K) was rare, while now the greatest volume of business and the greatest number of machines are un der that figure. The tabulation takes in only Amer ican gasolene automobiles built under jSolden patent licenses. There has been a tremendous increase in the j making of what are termed the moder ate priced cars and a normal and healthy increase in the number of the higher priced machines produced. From $1,133.37, as the average price for cars in 1903, the average ran up to j $2,137.56 in 1907. since which time it (has decreased until the first six I months of 1910 shows $1543.93 as the j average retail list price of cars.
