Hope Oliver Retires
By M. M. Grimsen, Claresholm, Alta.
‘“I’ve made lots of branding fires but I’ve never made one like this,” remarked Hope Oliver to Mrs. Oliver as he lit a fire in the gas range in their home to which they have retired in Claresholm. Without doubt Mr. Oliver had made many branding fires in the more than thirty years he was on a ranch. He had worked for the P. Burns Ranches Ltd., thirty years when that concern sold the “44” ranch west of Clareshom, April 1, 1952.’
