Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, January 2, 1013. THE LETHBKIDGE DAILY HERALD Typewriter Baraaim REMINGTON, SMITH-PREMIER AND OTHER MAKES. Latest models; visible writing. Nearly new. Taken in exchange for Underwoods. Your choice. ! $50 United Typewriter Co, Limited. HULL BLOCK LETHBRIDGE- HE STREE Carrying' close to a half-million passengers, or a daily average of 4,1-60, the Lethbridge Municipal Railway closed 'the year 1!>12 'with something to the good over the 320,000.mark set a few days ago. One hundred and fifteen days of operation have given o fairly good indication of the future of the street railway, and those indications are bright. As the actual operating cost has not yet been arrived at, owing to changes in the power station, it is impossible to tell what the cost of running the system for 115 days has been. However, the approximate daily expense has been set at $190, or $21,850 for the time the Sjotem has been in operation. The statement as iBsued by the department today, is as follows: Total passengers........ 4T8,:!fl4 Total earnings........ $20,7.27.17 Average daily passengers .. -l.lfifi Average daily earnings .. ... 31S0.21 The above included $b71.05 advertising revenue. It will, therefore, be seen that, if the estimated operatingi expense is correct, the city has been losing a little less than ten dollars per day. The December report compares intfat favorably with that of November, showing almost 25 per cent.'increase. The report follows: Dec. Nov. Total passengers .. 131,134 105,882 Tot?;l earnings.'. \. $5567.96 34500.75 Avge, daily pas..... 4,230 3,529 Avge. daily earn... 3 17f�.(il 3 150.02 . The December average daily passengers is, then, 70 in excess of the average for the year. SIET CI HAD A IK E Only the quickness of the motor-man on one of the blue line cars prevented an accident at the 13th St. crossing a couple of days ago. With about 20 people on board, the car was proceeding on its way, and not receiving any signal,from the watchman, was within a lew feet of the crossing'.when a big switch engine � claimed the right oj way and came tearing across -the crossing. ,The mo-torman applied the, emergency brakes and brought tbe*car to a stop within two feet of the C.P.R. .traoksafon investigation .it was found vfflafc the watchman was-not'in his'place, and had an accident* occurred, it would have been hard - to place the blame, us the motorman. was. perfectly right-in proceeding when .no i>;,* signalled to. stop.

MISS LETHBRIDGE'S 1913 REVERIE It Miss Lethbridge sat and watched the* Old Year die; !; The-Spirit of the New Year hovered by, And coming closer, whispered in her �ar, What is your wish for this, the coming year? Miss Lethbridge, startled from her dreams, Was strongly tempted to indulge in screams, But, thinking show of courage would be best. She turned instead towards her unseen guest "Oh Spirit of the year one nine one three, 1 thank you for this friendly call," said she. "And as for what I wish, I'm not qui to sure, 'Twould not be greedy if I asked for more, For in the past so favored I have been, That in the 'Southern country, I'm ca,lled the Queen. My boulevards, my parks, rny streets so wide. Are e'en the envybf the country-side. I own ray street cars, plants for light and water. Some say that 1'rd" Alberta's fairest daughter. All my investments ar-ei regarded sound, 'Safe as the bank', is how the word goes round. There are some folic, of course, seek to defame That best of my possessions-my good name. As soon would pistol shots disturb Gibraltar, As these poor brainless things my progress falter. I know of naught that aaould my spirit grieve, And I am full of thanks .this New Year's Eve. My skipper in the year soon to be dead. Methought too often called 'Full steam ahead.' And oft I suffered frohi such scares and shocks, I thought for sure he'd run us on the rocks. But Fortune, ever smiling on the brave, Bids me approve the �orderB that be gave. And yet. commends,me to a course more tardy, And thus instructed; I've appointed Hardle. He'll steer a careful course, I have no doubt, And prove his worth before the year is out. My trade is. good, my bank returns will show. How year by year, and step by step I grow. Examine' ail my records and you will find, To me Dame Fortune has'been very kind. My counsellors are all true men and steady, To give their best advice are ever ready. They'll give hie very .ehortiy, I am told, N A charter new, and mpny plans unfold. All with a view of helping me maintain, My prond posjtion in this Southern'Plain. .

The cosy sitting out'" room' was aglow with chrysanthemums, while the supper room was done in Christmas crimson and green, the table being very pretty with scarlet carnations and candles. Music was supplied by Miss Wright, pianist, and the affair was a happy way of spending the closing hours of-1912, and welcoming 1"913. �   The first annual social- and dance, which was held in Unity hall on New Year's Eve, under the auspices of "Comet Lodge'-' 289, Brotherhood of Railway Carmen of America, proved to be a decided success.
