Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta BRADSHAW FAMILY REUNION About 50 Descen- dants of the late Richard W. and Jane Evans Bradshaw gather at Belly River flats campground in Walerton Lakes National Park for a family reunion. Shortly after the turn of the century, Mr. Bradshaw followed the trend of the times and. began raising wheat on a large scale at Magrath. He used horses, plows and steam en- gines to break up acres in the spring of 1906 and grew the fir t wheat in the area.

Family Gathers At Belly River Flats Stiluiday, Aunuil 11, Tilt LFIUDRIDCf 3 Shell Plant Fights Pollution By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald Staff Writer WATERTON Descendants of Jane Evans Bradshaw and H. W. (Dick) Bradshaw, pi- oneer rancher whose Rosedale Farm percherons were big win- ners at the Lethbridge and Dis- trict Exhibition early in the century, gathered recently at Belly River flats for a family picnic. Fifty attended, including the late Dick Bradshaw's sons, Richard, Max and Evans of Magrath, Lethbridge and Mountain View rexpectively. Their wives, Olive, Pearl and Alberta and many grandchil- dren were on hand. PLAYS GUITAR Shannon Nelson of Jefferson, daughter of Mr. ai.d Mrs. Gor- don Nelson, sang and accom- panied herself on guitar. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Dean Bradshaw of Calgary sang. Unable to attend were Mrs. Margaret Smith of North Van- couver and Mr. and Mrs. Tex Hickard of West Vancouver, DEAN BRADSHAW Younger Days B.C. and Mr. and Mrs. Earl Tpmlinson Jr., Taber. BE CAREFUL Charles Harker of Magrath was on hand, enjoying the op- portunity to talk about the da3rs when Pink was the top percheron in the south. "Boy, that horse weighed more than a Mr. Harker recalled. "You had to be care- ful not to let him step on your toes." R. W. Bradshaw's first brand was the sheep-hook 6. His EARL TOMLINSON horse brand was the half dia- mond B. Besides percherons, he also imported fine French coach horses. Richard Bradshaw of Ma- grath reminisced as follows: "R, W. would ship 600 head of horses up from Nevada and it was my job to herd those horses. They'd run from Haley to Stirling and it was my job to know where they were. "They were wild horses and f mean wild. Those horses had only seen a man but once when they were branded. "Horses run in bands and each band would have a mark- er. R. W. would say go out and get that bunch -with the buck- skin or get that bunch with the four-eyed appalonsa. I would go out and run in that bunch and no other. 'Now then, R. W. traded land at Rosedale (near Magrath) for land up at Caldwell and Birds- eye. He traded one acre of land at Rosedale for three acres of land and some cash at Birdseye. ''There was a fellow worker for R. W. a fugitive from the law. I was just a kid, 13 years of age. He said to me: "Kid, see that horse. If you can catch him you can have him. EEAL HORSES "Now there were some real horses in those days. See that table over there. That horse could jump that far in one jump. Well I caught him. The fellow said to R. W. I can't iet him have that horse, he's not mine to give. But he gave me another one.

"Those were the days when man's word was good. I re- member E. W. writing out a cheque for a large sum of mon- ey. He was sitting out on a hillside and handed the cheque to a fellow and said buy me cattle with that. He did, all but Later when I was in trou- ble at Beazer, R. W. said why don't you go see that fellow. I rapped on his door and he re- membered he owed R. W. and he wrote me out a cheque for it. BORN AT LEIFI Jane Evans Bradshaw was born at Lehi, Utah County, Utah, Dec. 38, 1867, a daughter of Bishop David Evans and Margaret Christine Holm. Her early life was spent much as that of other early settlers. Supplying food and clothing took 'the co-operative effort of the entire family. Among many other tilings there was wool to card, spin, knit and weave. Her father died June 23, 1883, when she was. 16. It was necessary for her mother to weave to sup- port the family. On Nov. 23, 1888, she mar- ried Richard William Brad- shaw. They were the parents of 10 children: Richard David; June Adell (Mrs. Joseph Charles a girl who died before birth; Ina Leone (Mrs. Norris Edward Margaret Mary (Mrs. Allen Noble Maxwell Wil- liam; Evans Carlisle; Reed who died at birth; and Gladys Jane, (Mrs. Tex During the great "flu" epi- demic, Jane Evans Bradshaw became ill. It developed into pneumonia. She had two daugh- ters, a son and a grandson all sick in the house at Magrath at the same time. All that medical aid and kind friends could do to assist her was done but death came to her March 27, 1919. PIONEERED ID The story of the late R. W. Bradshaw launches much of the irrigation liistory of south Alberta, for it was from the Caldwell-Mountain View Ir- rigation District which he pi- oneered, that larger schemes flowed. Maxine and Don Hanson run prize polled Hereford cattle on the Birdseye Ranch, handed down from R. W: to Max Brad- shaw. The sons of Evans and Al- berta have pushed ahead. They rode horseback to school at Mountain View. Carlisle is ap- proaching his doctorate in agri- culture; Dean is an oil reser- voir engineer; and Lee heads the physics department at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. A daughter, Mrs. Heed (Janet) Merrill, lives at Calgary. STOPPED BEATING Some day, perhaps a book will be published detailing va- rious encounters with bears in- volving members of the family. One of the most unbelievable, but true, is Max's story about tracking a bear in the snow, a tracking adventure that ended with the hunter face to face with a rudely awakened bear. "I've heard people say they were so scared their heait stopped Max Brad- shaw says, "And I never be- lieved it until that moment." PRIDE OF THE BRADSHAW FAMILY This percheron, twice champion at the Chicago International, is fondly remembered by the Bradshaw families of southern Al- berta. Magrath pioneer, the late R. W. (Dick) Bradshaw bought him in 1909 from the Dunham, Fletcher and Dunham farm near Chicago for soon after he was imported from France. He weighed in at pounds and, shown by Richard Bradshaw of Magrath at Lethbridge fairs up to 1914, regularily defeated the prize-winning percherons exhibited by the late George Lane of Nanton, his stiffest competitors. Pink is buried at Rosedale, south of Magrath. He is remembered as one of the great horses of the past. MRS. NELSON ATTENDS REUNION-Don Hanson of Mountain View eluctantly to're himself away from the Birdseye Ranch rrigation ditches to attend the Bradshaw family reunion. Good Citizen Wins Praise From Sgt.

The slalcrl sulphur has reduced, by a sig- nificant percentage, product loss by dusting during loading and discharge operations. Tests at Vancouver, B.C. have shown thai handling and storage of slated sulphur re- sults in lower moisture content. Handling and storage at points of final destination arc also im- proved. Molten liquid sulphur as pro- duced is transferred to a tem- perature c o n t r o 1 led system. The sulphur is poured onto a li- quid cooled moving belt. Lam- inated sulphur layers are formed about one-quarter of an inch thick. These irregular shaped pieces are conveyed by belt iiretly to storage. Moisture content can be controlled and air pollution reduced because of the unique properties of slated sulphur. The product, because of its size and shape, is suited for open storage. Its free flowing quality permits ease of han- dling. These same characteris- tics of sulphur slates permit faster loading into rail cars and ships and rapid discharge from vessels at destination points. Trial shipments over the past year have been notably successful. The first regular unit tain of sulphur slates from Shell's Water-ton Gas Plant is moving to Vancouver, B.C., this month. Ail' Pollution Bylaw Passed SPARWOOD (HNS) At the regular meeting of the Council of the District of Sparwood, the Air Pollution Control Bylaw was given fourth and final reading and bylaws for fire limits and water rates, and for sewer service rates were given three readings each.
