Notes  After years of dangerous annual trips out onto the ice bridge, they were finally put to an end after a tragedy that took three lives ; the lives of a honeymoon couple and a teenage boy. Yesterday's accident will serve as an excuse for prohibiting tourists from entering upon any ice bridge that may form in the future...the bridge that proved fatal to three yesterday gave every promise of continuing intact for the remainder of the season and into Spring. In fact it gave such an appearance of solidity that three shacks were erected on it Saturday and much business was expected yesterday afternoon. Last night signs were posted forbidding any attmept to walk upon the ice. The Courier, February 1912.
