The C P R has added some eight miles of track to its [ Lethbridge Yaids. The new Freight Houses and Warehouses on 13th Street were, opened September 29 1913. The construction of Ihe new Post Oflice began Sepleni-jjcr 1912. The building is under roof and is expected to be occupied before October 1914. NEW YEAR ADVANCES The year 1911 approaches with interesting prospects.] The C P R announces an extensive settling campaign for its ; great irrigation jjroject adjoining the City. The Crow's Nest ' Line is being double-tracked and further additions to the i Lethbridge Yards are jirojected including the subway at 13th I Street. The C P R Lines to .Weyburn and in the Retlaw | District will probably be completed in 1911. Plans of the i C N R Ci T P and G N lor extensions into this territory are expected to mature at any lime. Two new hotels are now under consideration as are also a new bank building and a new wholesale house. The Provincial Government has just announced the location in Lethbi-idge of a new Land Titles Othce for Southern .\lberla. PUBLICITY The following publications have been issued: Lethbridge Present and Pro.spective................ 1,500 Lethbridge in Pursuit of Conuucrce and Manufacture. 19,000 .Announcement of Lethbridge Power Building........ 5,000 Lethbridge on the" Map............................10,000 i In all publicity issuing fiom this oflice a leputation fori plain facts ha.s been sought. Inflation and exaggeration has been avoided. The folly of over-doing promotion and publicity is now easily apparent in many cities and in several cases is said to have been the mirage which has attracted ! "The .\rniy of the Unemployed." Lethbridge is singularly j free from unemi)loyed lucn. Many photographs of Lethbridge .scenes and descriptive piu-agraphs luive be show a gain of $390,.582.00 which (lonsidering the comi)ar,'itivr real estate activity of these years is a great gain. The coal mines operating have iiad the lai-ges( output in I heir histoiy. The miners' payrolls of Lethbridge and vicinity at this lime include more than 2000 men. Two smaller mines are idle bul not on account of markcl or labor con-tli lions. The extensions the C P il in the Dislricl have proceeded according to announcement. Moie than an average of one new station a week was added lo Ihc Lelli-bridge Wholesale District in 1913. .Vboul (id miles remains lo complete the line of 4.35 miles eastward to \\'eyburn. This new line adds a large tributary district lo our City. Il also shortens Ihe route to Winnipeg and via Puiial to the Initcd Stales. President Shaughncssy in his report to the C P H stockholders states the line connecting Midway and Hope B C, will be completed in time for 1915 trntTie. The (',r(nv's Xesl Pass Line tlirougli Lethbridge will thereafter furnish the short mileage and low grade route betwi^eu X'aiiccjuvcr and Winnipeg.- Lellibridge then in command of the C;niad-ian Tran.scoiilineiital Route as well as the three Western gateways to the Criited States -Kingsgate Cinitls and Portal -becomes the natural metropolis of a vast territory and the logical location for manufacturing milling jobbing storage ! disti-ibution and exchange between the tireat Canadian Prairies and all who commerce with their i)eoj)lc. METROPOLITAN OPPORTUNITIES AND OBLIGATIONS Lethbridge is easily tlio most importanl centre for coal mining in Canada west of Nova Scotia. The coal industry will doubtless have continual devc!o[)ment as ijopulatiun increases. The Customs TarilT of the United States recently passed providing free entry for coal will stimulate development of coal mining and railroad construction. Cheap coal and natural gas so well-develoi)ed al Lethbridge arc reliable bases foi- great expectations in the (k'veloi)-nicnt of manufacture. Increase of mining and manufacture however arise from inci-ease of population. Western Canada is primarily an agricultural country. The commercial and industrial policy of a metropolitan I cily in this locality must therefore include a broad sympathy with the agriculturist.

"Not nil this railway cxpausiou and .increased property is directly attrih-jnted to the guarantee policy of thfi [provincial .i^overnment. As a niatrer I of fact, Mr. Harvey says that not initirh more rlian half ;s so attribut-!able in a direct sense. But indirectly the government may fairly claim the greater part of this state of altairs inasmuch as its guarantee policv has 1 caused enlargement, of the conslruc-!tion program bv competitive railways. "Notwithstanding tlie decided retrenchment which took place is practical Iv every branch of industry in Canada during }SVi, it i.s gratifyin.g to lind that a substantial increase was made in that period to the rail-v.-ay mileage of the province. There were at the beginning of the year 30.55 miles of completed railway in existence. To this mileage, the CP. H. added 158 miles, the C.X.K. 3511 miles, and the ti. T.

On the other hand, have you noted how an audience win lean forward and grasp the chair arms when the speaker reveals enthusiasm ? Enthusiasm is the buoyant expression of truth. To impart belief in anything, a man must believe it deeply himself. We call such a man an enthusiast. This applies to the written word also - particularly to advertisements. When the manufacturer really believes in his wares, his enthusiasm will almost inevitably find expression in Advertising. And enthusiasm will be contagious - his audience - the readers of the newspaper-will, figuratively speaking, "lean forward and listen intently." To be convincing an advertisement must convey an unmistakable impression of enthusiasm. This it will only do when the article advertised has inherent worth. Thus we have: Sincerity - � Enthusiasm �- Advertising: Three mighty forces, close-linked. If you are dainf a local businnst talk over your advertisint prtiltms with the Adverliaing Department of this newspaper. Q if you are doint a prooincial or naUonal butiness it would be well for you lo have the counsel and assistance of a good advertising agency. A list of these will be furnished, without cost or oblignlioH, by 'Hf .Secretary of Canadian Press Association, Room 503, Lumsden Building, Toronto. I ;
