JOHN WARE'S CABIN John Wore, Alberta's famed Negro cowboy and rancher, lived the hard life of a pioneer. Killed when his horse pitched to the ground in the badlands of the Red Deer River valley, now Dinosaur Provincial Park, Ware is a legend. He fought prejudice but misfortune plagued him. He 'built this cabin, top left photo, with logs he hauled with a two- horse hitch from the Red Deer River, He built the cabin furniture from sections of bigger logs. Janet Ware of Vulcan and Robert Ware of Calgary are shown unveiling their father's portrait at the official opening some years ago of the John Ware Junior High School in Calgary. The South Carolina slave turned successful Alberta cattle rancher remains an inspiration to all Albertans. Sakamoto and D'Arcy Rickard, Photos Cabin whispers John Ware's story By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald Staff Writer BROOKS John Ware was a mighty man. I've just been through Ware's log cabin. It is standing 10 miles downstream from its old site on the bank of the Red Deer Rivef. It is situated in Dinosaur Provincial Park 30 miles northeast of here. Take Highway 36 north from Taber to get to this amazing place. Amazing and practically un- known. 'One of the most care- fully guarded secrets in Alberta is that Dinosaur Provincial Park is located on the Red Deer River near Brooks. Most people think its near Drumheller which is one hell of a mistake as far as the Bi'ooks Chamber of Commerce is concerned.) But let's talk about John Ware. He came in 1883 to the raw land that was later to be- come Alberta- John Ware was a cowhand with a trail herd from the U.S. he stayed to become one of the top hands in the Quorn Ranch south of Calgary- Just look at the chair's in this cabin! Hewed from huge trees by Ware's mighty axe-wielding forearm. "Tlie horse is not running on the prairie that John Ware can't said a newspaper story about him.

Mr. Major was the former guidance councillor who resign- ed a year ago and was never replaced. Andrew Nowicki, principal at Fort MacLeod, added: "We really need one full-time coun- sellor in the F. P. Walsh High School." The kids really do have a problem to decide what careers and occupations to head for, said another.

Good wcaUicr and a wonderful time was enjoyed by all. riding stable and learned to ride and rope. When a cowboy companion was thrown from his horse and dragged by his stirrup, Ware spui'red his horse after the frightened animal and saved his friend's life. Misfortune struck afier he de- cided to move his wife and fam- ily of five children to tie banks of the Red Deer River. The first cabin he built was swept away by the flooding river. The Negro pioneer had used a team to pull logs fof the cabin out of the river. A photo- graph showing him doing bru- tally hard work hangs today in Ms second cabin. DIED OF PNEUMONIA Mildred, his wife, died of pneumonia in the spring of 1905. "Dad was not the same man after we lost Ware's daughter Janet recalled in an interview 10 years ago in Cal- gary. The people who remembered Ware moved the cabin he built on his ranch 15 miles to Dead Lodge Canyon in the provincial park. It was restored by the Brooks Kinsmen Club. Ware's children were cared for by his wife's relatives. Janet and Mildred never married. One son, William' was gassed during the First World War and died after returning to this country. Two other sons, Boh and Arthur, worked for the CPR as porters. An interesting relic in the cabin is Uie round table top from the Patricia Hotel bar1. Ranchers of the area, enjoying a shot o[ whisky, decided to burn their brands into the table top- It's a mgged bit of historv John Ware called himself a "smoked Irishman." He could laugh if a joke was well-inten- tioned- But he once threw a man through the window of a Calgary hotel when the stranger Insulted Ware's color. LEGENDS Legend has it Ware dunked a couple of cowboys in a creek for playing a practical joke on him; heaved a man across the street for dangling a smoke in his face and rescued his dog from an Indian by roping the thief's teepee and yanking it to the ground, scooping up the dog as he went. Ware began ranching on the outskirts of Calgary and in married Mildred Lewis, comely daughter of a family that had just moved to town. He was riding to the city one day when he stopped at a ranch to find a woman alone and in labor. He delivered the baby, found help for the mother, then went in search of her husband He found him in a Calgary sa- loon. "I'm going to teach you a les- he said, and by all ac- counts he did. His story has been told vivid- ly by Grant MacEwan, lieuten- ant governor, in the book John Ware Cow Country. The cabin remains to tell an- other John Ware story. A story about a mighty man. And if-you listen carefully, you hear some wonderful history whispering through the rough-hewn walls.
