By JT.TDE TUIUC Herald Staff Writer Alfred McKeague had Ms be- ginnings in a 13 room house, built by a southern genllemai during the time of the war be- tween the States. The year was 1877, the prov- ince was Quebec, and the place was Danville, where "gooc Maple trees were everywhere." "I remember that said Mr. McKeague, "it had big rooms, and I mean rooms, not these little things today. It had big southern type veran- das and big green windows. Never appreciated what I had till I moved away." Mr. McKeague began work- ing at an sarly age, and by the time he had reached Ms 16th birthday, he was "signec on with the CPR, and I lied about my age. I had too, or they wouldn't have let me on. Mr. McKeague travelled we while with the railroad, and was stationed at Cranbrook. He ran the line through to Lethbridge, where the trains turned around and headed back to B.C. "My first glimpse of this place was in he said, "and I don't bebeve there were over 200 people here. "There was no such thing as Lethbridge then. It was what we called a whistle stop. "Mostly it was just a lot of little coal engines lussin' around and narrow guage tracks to Montana." During this time, Mr. Mc- Keague tried ranching, but "after the winter of 1906 and 1907, I decided to quit. "Those were bad years, with the cattle starving and people able to ride over fence posts, think PART IV PICTURE QUIZ 5 ..NTS 1 nm a candidate for President of the United States.

Mr. McKeague's work exper- ience was far from limited to ranching and railroading. During his 11 years of living on the Indian reservation at Brocket, he served as magis- trate for the Norlh West Mount- ed Police. "They got me my commis- sion, and I hoard ordirary cases strictly for the he said. "My first case was the Indian Agent out there a white man and I wouldn't make a decision. "He was naught shooting prairie chickens out of season, and I fined him 510 after writ- ing to the Attorney General to see if what I decided was al- right." Besides serving as magis- trate, he continued his work with the CPR as trouble-shoot- er. "I wanted jobs that had prob- he said, "that's why I was put on as trouble-shooter, and I liked it. "The night of Frank Slide, I was at home, but went out, and a fellow with me volunteered to cross the slide and warn the eastbound train of what had happened. "He made it in time alright, but told us he could feel the rocks moving when he was climbing over and under the pieces." Mr. MeKeague added that the slide claimed more lives on the buried train than the CPR knew of. The night be- fore, the company had "sent a load of construction wor- kers; a group of Chinese and Euniopeans. "We never knew how many, and they're all under there on that he said. Memories of his days in Leth- iridge included lines when 'an Imperial bottle of whiskey was 80 cents, beer was two big jugs for a quarter, and people came in to stand at a long bar 'or two or three quick ones, and off again." "The people who lived here were the ranchers, railroad men nnd the miners. Old No. 3 was a town all to itself. They had nothing lo do with Leth- bridge; even had their own taxis." After close to a ccr.lury of life, Mr. McKeague looked back at his times, saying, "when you live this long, you're in a different world. "If I could, I'd do it differ- ently. I got advice back then, and I wouldn't take it. "In the last 25 or 30 years, you see things a lot belter; and they were right."

THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Is a fortune cookie with the promise of 'finan- cial gains' in the very near future collat- eral enough, Just Jude By JUDE TURIC CUMMER help isn't too hard to come by, nnd once hired, it often proves to be the life of the place. Our summer help at the Herald showed up look- ing eager, willing and ready to report their hearts out lo the waiting public. Office hours proved them to be congenial people, giggly when the time warranted; serious when the occasion arose. The best part was hidden, until lately. Now that some particular quirks in their nature have shown up, the regular staff insists on replays. Of special interest, is a phobia revealed by cub reporter Bernice. She's afraid of stairs. Her fears seem to be well founded, and in her recounted tales of stair adventures, it's easy to believe she's the innocent victim of the sadistic steps. A parlicularily vicious attack was launched by the stairs of a local coffee shop and carried out to the extent of inflicting injuries. Unsuspecting of any such planned encounter, Ber- nice sallied forth to enjoy her ritual cup of coffee, at the usual time, and tbe usual place. She successfully scaled the first set of steps, ven- tured to blatantly walk down the next, came to rest on her knees, arms outstretched, reaching for the door, shocked look on her face, and an I-knew-it- would-happen glaze in her eyes. Result: bruised, tender and days-after delicate knees. Once the embarassment of the moment had passed, she agreed to tell all, beginning with her younger days in Saskatchewan, when, while doing an errand for her mother, she found herself sliding down the stairs. She not only bounced her way to the bottom, but also managed to stick a metal flowerpot on her head, resulting in a pretty clangy ride, and a resounding din in her ears. Another episode placed her atop the brutally con- crete stairs of the Exhibition Pavilion, with a desire to get to the safety of the solid, flat ground. Her courage, spurred by a successful half-way descent, quickly deteriorated as a laggard shoe sent her tripping. Visions of a bloody, broken head led her to grab for side railings, and nearly yank her arms free of her body with the force of stopping the fall. With these incidents stuck close to the top of her memory banks, it seems she should staunchly refuse to ascend, descend or think of stairs. But indeed, she insists on conducting her private battle with "next time it'll be them." CONFIDENTIALLY YOOR5 TORONTO, July 27th Now! 3 new and exciting ready-to-serve salads from LE SUEUH.
