Here he worked on the high level bridge, worked as a farm- hand, and filed himself on a homestead rear Enchant. After years, Mr. Shenton sent for his family in England. The family was to come on the ill-fated Titanic, but some- thing prevented this, so they sailed lo Canada on the Empress of Britain After arriving in Lethbridge, Oct. 15, 1912, the family stayed at the Windsor Hotel, and wan- dered around Lethbridge await- ing the arrival of their father lo pick them up. On the way to the home- stead the family had to ford the Oldman River with a four- horse team and wagon. The children became involved in Canada in things they had never done before. Gopiier chasing was a thrill 'or the boys, the girls started a do housekeeping for families n Taber, and the two younger children, who were told to pick up a sack full of buffalo clips, ajid not knowing what it meant, picked up a sack-full of bones. The family lived through the imes of the "dirty the laying of the CPR railway and the introduction, of Irriga- tion into southern Alberta. George Shenton died in 1927, and his wife died in 1945. Their children are all still Jiving in Alberta. The Shentons will be cele- irating 60 years in Canada on Aug. 6 at a dinner and pro- gram in the Enchant Commun- ity Hall.

The Union of B.C. Municipali- .ies has declared it will not accept Fernie's resolution at its fall convention because it is of a regional nature rather than of province-wide interest. The B.C. Chamber of Com- -icrce rejected the brief be- cause Fernie didn't pay its membership last year.
