MACDONALD) PRACTICALLY every newspaper and magazine in Canada has, at one time or another, pub- lished the story of the Frank Slide. All the main details have been given over and over, bat tbs little incidents arising from the slide have not had much publicity.

The Graham brothers lived on a farm adjoining the property of the Canadian American Coal Company. They worked in the mine and farm- ed as a side line. But ia the spring of 1903 they decided to establish a dairy business. The population of Frank was rapidly increasing and there was a market for dairy pro- ducts right at their door. John Graham was delegated to ride around to the ranches in the foothills and buy all the milk cows available. He set off and approach- ed the farm of one Ned Morgan. This was on the 28th of April. Morgan was plowing, but. when circulated book "Normandy to the Baltic." were a "complete answer" to the charge of Halph Ingersoll in. his book "Top Secret" that the bat- tle of Caen was a Tha CBC coreispondent quoted on German forces from the Montgomery book: Ansio- June 15 June 25 June 30 July 10 Halton American Front Divis- ions Tanks 70 -190 J.i 140 2 ISO added that Canadian ions "WINNIPEG, May ruin came to vegetable gardens, causing a loss of thousands of dol- lars, by frost devastation across a. wide section of the prairies early j Friday.

As he expected to soon continue his plow- ing, he left the team in the barn, with the harness still on them. .-Make Deal Morgan and Graham rode off to the cow pasture, where, after some dickering, the latter agreed to buy two cows with their young eslves. Morgan helped drive the stock. It was a difficult task as the trail out to the highway was through thick brush and the cattle wandered into it. As soon as the men had one cow and calf safely on the trail and headed in the right direction, thej other famiiy group would be dis- covered half way back to pasture. So much time was being wasted that they decided to only take two animals to tne Graham place that day. and to come back later for the others. The one cow and calf proved to be even more trouble than had been anticipated, and it was quite late when the men reached John Gra- ham's home, tired and hungry. After supper it was suggested that Morgan remain all night. All the Graham boys could offer him was a couple of blankets in which to roll up on the floor, but even the floor looked good to him. He had taken off one shoe and was tugging at the other when he suddenly jumped to his feet and called. "Boyf. I can't stay after all. team is still in the bam, harnessed." Well, no farmer worthy problems and could call nesses and documents as evidence. NEWSPAPER PKICE UP TORONTO. May 11. ff> The Giobe and Mail, loronio's morning daily newspaper.
