VOL. III OCTOBER 1st 1897 No. 1
Published under the Auspices of Dr Barnardo's Homes

The grim reaper has not been idle during the last month as relates to the lads of the colony, and one of the saddest occurrences which has been reported to the Farm Home office for many a day, took place near Beausejour on the Port Arthur section of the Canadian Pacific Railway on the morning of August 4th, when David Ball, Scotsman, October 1896, was instantly killed by falling under a moving work train. The awful news came to us through the medium of the Daily Free Press of Aug 5th, the news item simply stating the facts given above, adding, by way of detail, that the remains were horribly mutilated and were taken in
charge by the Attorney-General's Department and interred in a Winnipeg cemetery. Poor Ball had only been placed out in a situation a few days, and becoming lonesome, he appears to have decided to make his way back to England at any cost, and met his untimely end in the manner above described. The neews came as a terrible shock to the young man's many friends at the Farm Home, where he was highly esteemed as a bright, honest lad, and will no doubt prove a blow to the relatives in
England. On Ball's person was found some eighteen dollars in Canadian money, and the address of a brother, Richard Ball, 236 Park Road, St. Helens, Lancashire, England.
