JOHNSON Jack Johnson Celebrates 90th Birthday FORT MACLEOD (Special) - John M. (Jack) Johnson, an oldtimer of the south MacLeod district, recently observed his 90th birthday at the Pioneer Lodge. By the ripe age of 13 he had been bitten by the call of the wide world. He left his native Sweden and moved to England He left England in 1902 and came to Canada. He arrived in Fort Macleod on June 15, 1903, and began working on the CPR's boarding car department. Recalling some of his experiences he remembers that there were more people living in the Barracks (NWMP) than there were in the town of Macleod. The CPR sent the "car" out for different gang jobs, at times they cooked for as many as 455 men. One three-week stint that stands out in Mr Johnson's memory is the sad story of the Barr Colonists. It seems that this Mr. Barr gath ered people in England and told them of the great opportunities in the new world Some 4,000 sold their property handed over the money for Barr to buy them land in Can ada and make all the arrangements for moving. Passage was secured and they reached Winnipeg. There the fraudulant Mr  Barr was found out. Arriving in Saskatoon, then a town of 160 people the 4.000 found nowhere to go, no land, no money. The government was call ed in and they, in turn hired the CPR to look after feeding these people until they could be provided for. The story ended on a happier note as most of the people were finally situated in the Lloydminster area. In 1908 Mr. Johnson bought a half section of farm land in the Ardenville district. He farmed there until retirement in 1946 A bachelor, his experience on the cook car made him the envy of most of the housewives in the community. Some of them still recall Ills famous raisin cookies. Upon asking him for the recipe his answer was, "They were very simple just one, two, three and that' all there is to it," then he add ed, "of coiu-se, that gives you lots of room for alterations.'
