NEW HULL BLOCK IS 4 A CREDIT TO THE CITY With the opening of the Hull block ar the corner of Seventh street and Third avenue tins week, LeUlbrldge people see the first fruits of W. R. Hull's faith in Mic oily of Lethbridge. Not that. Mr. Hull has not always had unbounded foilll In Ihe southern por- tion of the province., for he has, but the building o[ such a fine two- storey brink block in one of the best business locations in the city shows that ho believes l.elhbridge's future :s assured, and that the best part by far is yet lo come. As R wholesale and ilistrlunlinjr centre. Mr. Hull be- lieves that there is no plnt'C 111 Al- bertn which has belter natural advan- tages, lie believes that Lothbridge will bo one urcni gateways whieh a l.trge volume of the coming trade between Canada and the United Stales will flow-, and as a proof of his faith he has Just com- nlcted one of the finest and most up- to-date buildings in the whole city. The building itself is a credit not only io Mr. Hull's mislnens nbllllips, nt to the contractors as well. From the exterior It presents a fine appear- ,nce. IjeiiiE built of red pressed brick. The Interior is in keeping with Ihe outside appearance, and its complete- ness is one of Ihe features which will commend it to anyone who knows the good points of any business block: rl. -M. and A. Whiddington are Ihe architects who designed the building, and in it they have embraced some of he very latest features in that partlc- ilnr style of building. The ground floor Is occupied by .hreo large stores fronting on Third ivenuc, which are all well lighted and jeaulifuliy finished. A walk through he Interior .of Bawilvn now fur- niture store will convince anyone of tliis fact. At the aide on Seventh street are two smaller siores which may be used as offices, and these, too, are complete to the minute. The main entrance on Third avenue leads to a vestibule willch is floored with Ihe latest in flooring. It is made of stone wood, supplied by the Canadian General Suppjy Co., and is only floor of i-ts vet installed In the city. The upper floor Is divided into of- fices which are all large and roomy. Four of them are already in use, two being ocnpied by the Inland Revenue department of the Dominion Govern- ment, and two by the l.elhhridge Col- lieries for their city offices. Besides the offices (hero are seven suites, which are also very complete, contain- ing eaeh a sitting room, ami lending from It a kitchenette, and a bedroom. Off each is a bathroom, fully equipped in every detail. One now feature which is new in lavatory fixtures is used throughout the building, and that .Afraid to Eat Does the fear of indigestion spoil the enjoyment of your meals?

The building is also well enulptied with Tiro apparatus, there being; a firn hydrant on each floor. The fire es cupe system iU the rear Is of the-new stair imtern, making Hie building very safe in this regard Another of the features of thcjwild- ing, of which the architects have rea- son to be proud, is the heating; sys- tem. It is bulk In a separate base- ment ill. the rear, and contains all iho steam hnatiny apparatus apart from (he rest Of the block. In this way the risk from fire is considerably lessen- ed, especially since all the equipment is contained in a reinforced concrete building. This part Is just, the height of the basement, ami from the alley on the east there is a driveway lead- ing In on top of tliis part. In this way all goods brought, to the various stores can be unloaded at the rear of the biillding on a level with the main floor, thus doing away with the old methods of bringing goods in from the street entrance. Each store has also a full sized basement; with an exit, to a sort of pit between the heat ing annex and the main building. All refuse can he placed here where .it can be readily removed at any time. There is also a freight elevator from' the basement'to'the'top floot whi'rh will be a great convenience in'- handling safes, and other heavj fnrn.1- -ture, which have ordinarily tto be tak- en up the stairway. An ash .elevator, electrically driven is a feature of note. It is situated on top oE the heating annex, and a refuse cart can drive in from the street' under the. spnnt, getting the ash accumulation very little trouble Altogether the building Js highl> creditable, and Lussier Bros., the con- tractors, and their building superin- tendent, WTO.
