Every citizen, who travels east, j west, north or south is given an op-1 portunity no boost Lethbridge. j They can talk to strangers about j the resources and development of this city and district or they can give in- j to the newspapers. i That sort of publicity is effective j and every citizen should be eager to push the idea along. As Seen by a Down phatically Denied by Interetted Parties (A Clipping.) MiMk-ine Hat has as mild and balmv a climate as any point- in the Canadian West. It persistently, however, gets the blame for all the cold weather of the continent. Here is the latest from the Buffalo Newsj last week's snow storm: j "After this storm we guess that ,.j the American In- j stitution will know better than j to monkey with Medicine Hat." But the citizens of Medicine Hat should call an indignation meeting and get out an injunction against the NevTYork judge. The judge's rhym-j su-r, never having seen pictures oij Medicine Hat citizens engaged in a; sramo of baseball in January or pick-; ing cucumbers iu March, has broken! oat into the following melody: i A LOCAL BUDGET. (HELD OVER PROM YESTERDAY) W. H. McArthur of Claresholm paid a visit to the city on Saturday, Miss McLeay was removed this ning by order of Dr. Galbraith, to Gait Hospital. la Roy Demmon of Coal City 'Is in the city making an application for liquor license. His Honor Judge Winter arrived in Lethbridge-Iast evening to open the district court. Sec the beautiful illustration of a faithful dog at tht Lyceum tonight. R. S. Armstrong arrived in the city on Saturday evening from Win- POL1TICS NOT WANTED. Mayor Adam, the Chief Magistrate of Buffalo, gave wise and timely ad- vice to his fellow citizens not long; ago when be said: "A city govern- j ment cannot be run on any other 2, b'-isinass basis hi t-he interests i of the taxpayers. If politics is in- i troduced in municipal affairs a gov- i omment becomes too expensive for the people. Municipalities should be j run on a business basis." j Sfo saner statement was ever utter- j ed. Politics should never be known j in. civic affairs. TVliat the people! Is a business administration of j their affairs. So far in Alberta Pol- j itics has not crept into municipal at-j fairs and it is to be sincerely hoped j it never will. The rotten municipal governments in some American cities is due solely to the prevalence of i politics. The parties take turns at j grafting and the people suffer in pock- i et and the cit3r in reputation. i A BETTER ENTRANCE NECESSARY! i It is to be hoped that the ef-; fort to secure a more convenient j entrance to the from the' other side or the river will be suc- cessful. It is a matter of prime im- portance and means much to the nier- i chants of this city, The suggestion that a bridge should j be constructed further down the riv- er is worthy of serious consideration, i If a convenient crossing can be found j and Mr. Robert Harvie's communica- tion would lead us to believe there i are several good places for a bridge. no time should be lost in taking the j matter up with the authorities. The present bridge is a good one, but the hills on both sides of the riv- i er, are so long and steep that we j cannot expect to retain the trade by; this route, if good market towns spring up on the other side of the river. 1 The time to solve the problem has arrived. there's a spot I wot 01 wt Arctic winds blow free: Evt-ry week they have a blizzard, and sometime? two or three; The sun is ever hidden in a semi- frozen sky. And a snowfall isn't counted less it's thirty-some feet high. It's the place tc wear a bearskin j snowshoes, broad and Medicine Hat: j Hearing, tearing Medicine Hat! j It's u cold-storage station., many mile's j from i With a weather man. some Injuns, and perhaps a polar bear, What -.roes on there in summer, why, no one seems to know, But there's always something doing when the north -winds start to blow; For here's the place old Winter is! sure of standing j Medicine Hat! S Blustering, flustering. Medicine; Hat! j l So watch the weather signals whenj the sky is overcast, j And ii you see the coldwave flag a-j flying from the mast, Just read the yellow bulletin and seej if it don't state, j "A howling blizzard's coming at aj sixty-five inile gait." And if you look the message o'er, j you'll see it's dated j Medicine Hat! j Snowy, blowy. Medicine Hat! j Father, Dear Father j Father, dear father, come home with) me now, j The clock on the dashboard strikes) one. j Don't fuss with the car any longer, i pupah; j You can't get the old tub to run. The cylinder's cracked and the timer! won't work; And mothers' been waiting since tea. j So tether the car io a post, father.; dear, I Anrl oorae home on the trolley with Come home., come home, etc. The first car of coal wn out over the Royal mine spur this morning. Hereafter all their output will bo shipped in this way. The College boy dancer at the Ly- ceum is a wonder. There is another rumor afloat to the effect that work will be inaugur- ated upon the Kootenay Central early in the spring, and that the road will be completed from the connection with the C.F.R. as far as Fort Steele by next fall. F. H. Sherman is now visiting the city and in all probability will make a tOjiir of the local mines. Paul St. John, of the Island Hotel. Waldo, was in the city on Tuesday. Mr. St. John has been -in the hospi- tal at Lethbridge for the last two weeks siiffering from blood poisoning- of the Herald. "AT THE LYCEUM The leading thing on the bill at the Lyceum this week is the dramatic sketch, "The Adventuress." The per- formers are very clever and made a big hit. Paddock the dancer has some novel steps and songs and executes both very well. He is a particularly good dancer. In the moving pictures is the tale of the "Dumb a story of a fisherman's family, a dog that rescues little girls from drowning.
