Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta Influenza epidemic over, ^^Uristmas shopping in full awing, and toe boys beglnnlAK to come home from J^ance, the petiple of Letbbridge and aistrlct are la just the right mood to enjoy aomething novel in the way of entertainment, especially when it is for bucu a good cause as giving the Middles of the soldiers a Christmas t^ea^and a chance to see SantaClaus, idia'that Is'the very reason why the liotary Club is banking on such large t*owd8 for-tlie Victory Carnival in the main'building of the fair grounds next Thursday, Friday and Saturday �fevenings. Tickets for the big event have been on sale only since last Wed-aesday morning, but more than 5*,r^iclpal council has voted in favor of /the immediate and complete abolition / i!ot the university established by the 0Xi�rman8 here during their occupation and a restoration of the French . i. i.'tJniversity.. of Ghent. The vote In the : i'council was/23 to 2, with eight mem-/ 'ibers not -voting. A fatal accident occurred this morning at^at Kipp when George Hewitt, a C. P. R. fireman, .stepped in front of incoming No. 567 from Mac-leod to Coutts, receiving injuries resulting; in his death before he could be brought to the city. It appears that the deceased, who was firing on a freight bound west; stepped off his englnfe, which was on a side track to let the passenger train pass, and not seeing-, or hearing the passenger coming, he was hit squarely by the engine of 567. The body was badly mangled, and though every effort was made to rush him to the city for medical attention, the injuries were so serious that he died on the way^ The late Mr. Hewitt had been working on the LieUUi^tiigB division for about a month. He was 37 years of age, and came here from the V. S. na-vyi" in i^hjch' he was a. 'fireman.i Prior to Joining the "V. S. navy he was a marine fireman at Vancouver. The, company .officials are endeavoring today to get in, touch, with some ot his relatives, a& there are none here take charge of the remains. The young man was immarried.

Outside 'one or two little skifts of snow, and one cold period of three or four days when the mercury dropped to.four above zero, tlrere has been no winter as'yet..' Just at the present time the weather is like October. One effect of this Is that farmers are still busy ploughing. AH through the first week of December those farmers- who hadn't completed fall ploughing were busy turning over the land, with the result that the acreage ready for next year's crop is the largest in the history of Southern Alberta. The.thousands of acres of new breaking together with the immense areas of summerfallow and fall ploughing has put the south in a position to seed 25 per ceht more land next spring than ever before. Given normal weather conditioiis through the 1919 crop' season Sbuthern Alberta stands to surprise the world. Another good effect of the open fall is that farmers and ranchers who are short of feed for their stock have been able to conserve what little fodder they have to tide their stock over the winter season. m ......... toe � tlevcr-Fuling Remedy for Appendicitis, I- Indigestton^'Stomach Disorders, Appendicitis and Kidney Stones iam often caused by QslI Stones, :!'snd mislead people until those |t)'if)a4attacks pf Gall.Stoae Colic Asppear.-:Nnt one in ten^Gall t^me- anfferers knows what is ^thJft'ttbnble.'
