ClARA KANE It TiVas Four Mile Walk To Work Mrs. Kane Marks Birthday By MAEIE SORCARD Herald News Service IRON SPRINGS Mrs. Clara Kane, one of the earliest school teachers in Alberta and an old- timer of the Iron Springs com- munity, is receiving congratu- lations upon the occasion of her 87th birthday. She arrived in Lethbridge Dec. 1, 1906 and filed on a homestead in the Iron Springs area in March, 1907. After a brief sojourn back to Minnesota she again returned to Alberta in March, 1908. She has vivid recollections of those early years when her only means of transportation was a bicycle, her nearest woman neighbor a mile and .a half away, and I he store and post office four miles distant. In 1909 she taught at the pail of eggs, some butler, and Huntsville School, walking four miles morning and night. During the next two years of teaching she fared better in re- gard to transportation as she had a pony to ride. At one time she had 51 pupils, ranging in age from five to 25 years. among her recollections is the memory of an occasion during her first six months of homesteading when a friend, Miss Estellc Black, of Detroit, came to visit her for a month. One day, being in need of sup- plies, the two young women walked 26 miles to purchase their needs, and upon their re- turn home were carrying a five pound pail of sweet milk, a five pound pail of butter milk, a a live rooster. In 1912 she married Erwin Kane, another pioneer in the district, and for many years they were both very active in community affairs. Mrs. Kane served on the school board, was active in church groups, and also was a charter member of the Battersea Women's Insti- tute. They retired in 1944 and since the death of her husband in 1946 she has continued to make her home in Lethbridge. She is residing at the Green Acres Home and is a member of Southminster United Church. For many years she was also active in the Southminster UCW. Mrs. Kane revisits the Iron Springs district frequently. p> :.fg?

Sixteen far-sighted businessmen started Imperial Oil in the town of London, Ontario. We also started in London. On March 18th, 1864, some sixteen years earlier. That was the day 25 pioneer businessmen held the' first meeting of what is now Canada Trust. It was held in the room above MacFie's Store. And they opened our first office in a small brick building just behind that store. Now that has all passed. The people-and the buildings and the events of the day are Canadian history. But the approach of our 25 founders still lives on in our present company philosophy: "To bring the maximum amount of energy and in- telligence to bear on the project in order to most effectively serve the client." Which is exactly what we've done. Now after following it for over a century, we're one of Canada's largest trust companies with more branches coast to coast than anyone else. And our philosophy of service has made it all possible. Service. Service for every financial need. We urge you to try a free sample of it. Just phone or come in.
