- At The Charlottetown Hospital, Dec 28th, to Mr. and Mrs. Peter McAdam, West St. Peter's, a daughter.

- There passed away on Saturday, January 2nd inst. at her home Emerald Junction, Mrs. Catherine MacDonald, widow of the late James MacDonald, and last surviving member of the family of the late Bernard Croken, Summerfield.

Mrs. MacDonald was a woman of admirable qualities of heart and mind – and throughout her long life was a model of the truly Christian virtues, which go to make the ideal wife and mother.

Possessed of a keen intellect, Mrs. MacDonald was a very extensive reader, therefore, well informed on all topics of public interest. She was well known for her kindly charity and by such endeared herself to her large circle of friends and acquaintances.

Though advanced in years being in her ninety-first year, her death was keenly felt by the members of her family and her many friends.

She leaves to mourn their loss five sons – Rev. Brother A. Walter, Superior of the Bishop Laughlin Memorial High School, Brooklyn, N.Y., Joseph W. on the homestead, J. Augustine, K.C., Charlottetown, Daniel and Herbert in Western Canada, and three daughters, Catherine at home, Sister Catherine Helena of the Sisters of Notre Dame, Boston, Sister St. Andronicus of the C.N.D., Miscouche, one daughter, Helena Lucretia predeceased her ten years ago.

Her funeral was held on Jan. 4 from her late residence to St. James Church, Summerfield, where a solemn High Mass was sung by Rev. Phalen McKenna, celebrant; a nephew, Rev. Wilfred McCardle, deacon, Rev. Eugene Murray, sub-deacon, Rev. George MacDonald, master of ceremonies. There were also present in the sanctuary Rev. Dr. Smith, Kinkora, Rev. J. A. Sullivan, Ph. D., St. Dunstan's University.

Rev. Wilfred McCardle conducted the services at the grave.

The pall bearers were Thomas Hughes, Ambrose Carr, George Power, Joseph Matheson, St. Clair Croken and John McEntee.

May she rest in peace.

- It is said that God, beauty in Himself, in His desire for the beautiful about Him, often reaches down to earth to pluck therefrom the fairest flowers of youth in all their innocence that He may adorn His heavenly home with them.

This was exemplified very strikingly on December 2nd, when he entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. Michael MacPhee, Big Pond, and claimed to Himself their youngest child, Audrey Adelia, at the tender age of five months.

Until three weeks before her death the little one had been well and strong. Unfortunately she contracted the whooping-cough prevalent at that time. Successive demands on her strength weakened her resistance against complications which developed later. Medical aid and a mother's tender nursing were unavailing and she succumbed.

Audrey, bright, cheerful, lovable, the child winsome enough to win the love and admiration of all who knew her, the bonnie wee lassie who drew from her parents, brothers and sisters untiring devotion. At all times, the center of attraction, the bright spot in the home, she has gone to grace Heaven with her presence. No more will be heard the childish sounds of glee as she responds to the teasings of adoring brothers and sisters and rewards their efforts with smiles and gurgling laughter. No more will be heard the plaintive cry as she protests against some hurt or asks for something in the only way that she is able. The voice of "the baby" is forever stilled; the little form lies cold in death. Thy will be done.

To her parents, brothers and sisters goes out the genuine sympathy. They gave their all to save her whom they loved so much. With sorrow in their hearts they bravely carry on. May they be consoled and comforted in the thought that, from Heaven, their beloved Audrey, radiant in beauty, gazes down upon them with looks of love.

- At the Sacred Heart Home on January 7, 1937, Mrs. Elizabeth Ruth aged 93 years. The remains will be forwarded from Frank Hennessey's Funeral Home Friday afternoon by rail to Souris. The funeral will take place from T. E. Lavie's Funeral Home Saturday at 8.45 to St. Mary's Church, Souris.

STEELE - In Memoriam - Joseph Steele
- Died on December 23, 1936, in his home at McAskill River, Joseph Steele, in the sixty-first year of his age.

He leaves to mourn two sons Ambrose on the Canadian Government Steamship "Brant" and Laughlin at home, his wife (nee Mary E. O'Neil) having predeceased him thirty two years ago.

To the family the community extends its sincerest sympathy while it mourns the loss of an honest, truthful, peaceful man, a true neighbor and citizen.

On Christmas day his remains were interred in St. Peter's cemetery, Rev. A. MacAulay officiating at the grave.

The pall bearers were: Wilfred MacKinnon, James J. MacKinnon, Charles MacKinnon, Joseph G. MacKinnon, Walter O'Hanley and Sylvester MacInnis. John F. MacKinnon, undertaker.

DEATH: MACDONALD - IN MEMORIAM - FRANCIS HOWARD MACDONALD - The community of Little Pond was severely shocked when word was received of the sudden and tragic death of Francis Howard MacDonald of New York, on December 12th. He had stepped off a street car and was struck by a passing bus, which resulted in instant death.

Deceased who was born at Little Pond, was educated at St. Dunstan's University and for a number of years was in the employ of the Royal Bank of Canada at Charlottetown, Montreal and New York and at the time of his death with the Chase National of New York, and by his fidelity to duty, and obliging disposition won a high place in the esteem of his fellow-workers. There are left to mourn the loss of a fond husband and father his wife (Celia Gorman) and six children, besides his mother and three sisters and five brothers – Rev. A. Bernard, Calgary, Alberta; Mattie and Sr. St. Egbert (Ellie), Winnipeg, Man.; Joseph K., Neelin, Man.; Alastair and Bella, Montreal, and John and Charles S., of Little Pond, to whom sincerest sympathy is extended.

Interment was at Far Rockaway, Long Island. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord. R.I.P.

- In this city, Dec. 22, 1936, to Mr. and Mrs. Leo McIntyre, a son, Leonard Reginald.

- At Covehead, Dec 29th, to Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred J. MacDonald, a daughter, Rose Marie.

- That sense of gloom and sorrowful depression, so inseparable under all circumstances from the presence of the Grim Reaper, was poignantly manifested - intensified, as it was, by the nearness of the otherwise joyous Christmas season – when on December 13th, 1936, Mrs. Alfred O'Hanley, of St. Peter's, passed to her eternal reward after a very brief illness.

In her usual good health up to ten days before her death, she then suffered a sudden chill, but prompt treatment by the family doctor gave encouraging relief. Soon, however, pneumonia developed, with other complications, so that it became necessary to call in two city doctors also, of expert diagnosis and consultation. The services of a registered nurse were also secured promptly, to supplement the ministrations of the devoted members of her own family. But all proved unavailing. All too soon it became quite evident that no human skill could cope with the progress of her malady. In that same spirit of deep, unostentatious faith which had ever marked her career through life, she calmly prepared for the summons so soon to decide its close. Visited regularly throughout her illness by the parish priest, and with her spirit consoled and fortified for the last long journey by devout reception of the Holy Viaticum at his hands, fully conscious to the last moments of all about her, after bidding a fond farewell to the sorrowing ones grouped around, she then slowly sank into that calm repose, "as one who wraps the drapery of her couch about her and lies down to pleasant dreams".

Born at St. Margartet's on September 9th, 1874, Jennie Elizabeth MacPhee, daughter of the late Angus and Mrs. MacPhee of that place, she became the bride on November 18th, 1901, of Mr. Alfred O'Hanley, a prominent farmer and lobster packer of St. Peter's. Their family of eight children comprised four sons, John A., now of Boston, Mass.; Brent, Roderick and Euphras, at home, and four daughters, Mary Genevieve, who died in infancy; Katherine (Mrs. Harold Donnelly, Dorchester, Mass.); Florence, of Boston, but who returned home in time to be with her mother in her last days; and Marion, at home. Besides those seven children and their disconsolate father, the deceased is also survived by a sister, Mrs. James McDonald, of Hermanville, and two brothers, Allan MacPhee, of St. Margaret's, and John D. of Maine, U.S.A., to all of whom sincere sympathy is extended.

The late Mrs. O'Hanley was a woman of most estimable Christian character; to her husband a devoted and industrious helpmate; to her family a kind, self-sacrificing mother, while to the community at large, both in parochial activities and in others of a more comprehensive nature, her broad sympathies found effective expression wherever true womanly kindness could serve to comfort sadness or quietly relieve distress. No stronger testimony could be adduced of the high place her memory holds in the esteem and regard of the general public than the unusually large funeral cortege that accompanied her remains to the parish church at St. Peter's on the morning of December 15th. The hearse was driven by Charles J. McKinnon, with the following pall-bearers:- John D. Walsh, Hugh McIsaac, Martin McInnis, Peter Sutherland, Reginald Lewis and Alex. McKinnon.

Solemn Mass of Requiem was celebrated by Rev. A. MacAulay, P. P., who also conducted the service at the grave, assisted by Rev. L. P. Callaghan, of St. Charles, and a full choir under leadership of Mr. James Gillis. There, close by the sacred edifice in which for years with all her family, she had diligently prepared for all now signified by the simple, yet awesome, import of this final scene, her earthly form was gently consigned to its consecrated resting-place, pending the glorious resurrection promised to the Just. May her soul rest in peace!

The following tokens of regard and sympathy are gratefully acknowledged:

- The South Lake Christian Church and community felt a great loss in the passing of one of its oldest and most highly esteemed members and residents in the person of Mrs. Catherine Cameron, which occurred at South Lake, P.E.I., December 11th, aged 90 years. She was a daughter of the late Angus and Margaret Stewart.

Mrs. Cameron was of a very quiet and retiring disposition, exceptionally fond of her home and family, faithful upon every duty, and self-denying in her service for others. For the past year she had been in failing health, but bore her illness with the same fine spirit that had characterized her whole life.

While our hearts are saddened at her passing, we are not without hope or comfort when we remember that "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". She is survived by three sons – Renfrew and Stanley, East Point; Alexander, South Lake, where she resided until death. Her husband predeceased her 23 years ago.

Amidst a large concourse of loved ones and friends, funeral services were held at her late home Sunday afternoon, December 13th. Appropriate hymns were sung and a message of comfort given by her pastor from Revelation 14-13, after which the body was laid to rest in South Lake cemetery.

The pall-bearers were Walter Fisher, Joseph Ford, Wallace MacDonald, George Morrow, C. C. Dingwell and Fred Rose.

- There passed away at his home in Kingsboro, P.E.I., on December 9th, an old and highly respected citizen in the person of Cyrus N. Kennedy, aged 82 years.

He was the son of Donald and Catherine (Stewart) Kennedy, who immigrated with their parents from Perthshire, Scotland, to Kingsboro in 1808.

Mr. Kennedy made Kingsboro, where he was born, the center of all his activities. He not only devoted his life to farming but took a keen interest in horses, which interest became out of his hobbies. The community and its development also received from him its due attention.

He united with the East Point Baptist Church during the great revival of 1874 under the efficient leadership of the late Rev. D. G. MacDonald, and during the pastorate of the late Rev. John Shaw. He was a faithful and devoted member, regular in attendance at the House of God on Lord's Day until failing health intervened three years ago. Prior to this time he never knew what it was to be sick, and as a consequence took his enforced rest of six weeks from active service rather hard, and just as soon as he felt sufficiently able to resume his work entered into it with too much energy until nature reminded him of his physical limitations, and on October 7th, medical aid was sought. A week later he entered the P. E. Island hospital to undergo an operation, returning to his home on October 28th, very much improved in health.

Those more enlightened as to the true nature of his trouble knew that his apparent recovery was only temporary, although not looking for his exodus quite so soon.

Three weeks prior to his death his suffering accompanied by weakness, increased, although his mind was clear and his interest in the farm and current events remained as usual until two days before his death when he lapsed into a state of coma from which he never rallied, passing on to that "Bourne from whence no traveler returns." He bore his sufferings with marked patience and Christian fortitude. Thus terminated a long and active career.

He could relate many interesting stories of pioneer hardship and privation and draw vivid contrast between then and now. A story well worth hearing, but more worthy of our esteem and emulation.

He was always grateful for what was done for him, whether by doctor, nurse, friend, pastor, or those of his own household. He often spoke in appreciative terms of the service given him by the doctors and nurses in the P. E. I. Hospital, especially his own private nurse, whose care and attention could not be surpassed.

In his home he received the best care and attention that a beloved wife and devoted son could give. Great as all that service was, it could not retain or prolong life's span, so on Wednesday afternoon of December 9th, he passed on, leaving a vacancy in the home hard to fill and a heart sorrow that nothing but God's comforting grace can heal.

Four brothers and three sisters predeceased him several years ago, namely, Daniel, Freeman, Ezra J., Kingsboro, one brother dying in infancy; Christena A. (Mrs. James Cameron), South Lake; Jessie, (Mrs. Edward Stewart), Kingsboro, and Mary J., (Mrs. Albert Holbrook), Randolph, Mass.

Mr. Kennedy was the eighth child of a family of ten, and by coincidence, was the eighth death in the family circle.

There are left to mourn the loss of a kind and affectionate husband and father, his wife (Ellen Stewart Kennedy), and one son, Earl, both of whom reside at home; two aged sisters, Eliza, (Mrs. John McVane) and Margaret, (Mrs. James McVane), Bothwell, P. E. I.

Funeral services were held at his late home and grave on Saturday afternoon at 1.30 p.m., and despite the inclemency of the weather and almost impassability of the roads, were largely attended, Rev. H. R. Bell officiating at both services.

Appropriate music was fittingly rendered by Mrs. Ethel and Mrs. Seth McLean, Joshua F. MacDonald, Alexander Robertson and H. R. Bell.

The hymns sung were "Looking This Way", "In the Sweet Bye and Bye" and "Meet Me There". Miss Marion Kennedy presided at the organ. The message given was taken from the Book of Job, chapter five, verse six.

After the service at the home the mourners and friends wended their way to Kingsboro Baptist cemetery, and after singing "Shall We Gather at the River", all that was mortal was laid to rest, there to await the dawn of resurrection morn when the fallen asleep in Christ shall rise clothed in immortality.

The pall-bearers were: W. W. McLean, I. A. Stewart, H. P. Kennedy, Oswald Stewart and Alton Robertson.

- Died in Boston, Mass., Jan 14, 1937, as a result of injuries from an automobile accident, Daniel Barrett in his 60th year, beloved son of the late Catherine (nee Gillis) and Patrick Ryan Barrett of Mount Stewart.

DEATH: CLARKIN - IN MEMORIAM - MRS. ANNIE CLARKIN - Word has been received in this city of the death of Mrs. Annie Clarkin, who passed away after a few hours illness, on Jan. 22nd, at Syracuse, N. Y.

Her husband John T. Clarkin, formerly of the staff of the local post office predeceased her a number of years ago.

She is survived by two sons and three daughters.

- The death occurred at her home in Charlottetown on January 31st, 1937, of Mrs. John W. Macdonald, aged 76 years.

Mrs. Macdonald was beloved and honored by all who knew her, possessing those qualities of heart and mind that endear, and exemplifying in her life the true Christian mother and charitable friend.

She was the eldest daughter of Hugh and Christina Morrison Campbell of Grand Tracadie and later of Boston, Mass., and on her marriage to John W. Macdonald returned to her native province, where for forty-seven years their home near Corran Ban was a center of hospitality and neighborly kindness, where they both worked at all times for the best interests of the community and of their church.

Mrs. Macdonald received all the spiritual consolations of her holy religion, and during her illness was visited by many of the Catholic clergy of the diocese, whose blessing and prayers gave her comfort and consolation in the midst of her suffering.

She is survived by her son Frank with whom she made her home the past five years, and her daughter Mrs. J. J. Trainor of Bedford, who was with her mother during her serious illness.

One son, Somerled, together with her husband, predeceased her.

Mrs. Macdonald is survived also by three sisters, Mrs. Jas. P. Hughes, of Calgary, Alta.; Mrs. J. Alex MacNabb of Boston, Mass., and Mrs. W. J. MacIntyre of Charlottetown.

The funeral took place Tuesday morning, Feb. 2nd to St. Michael's Church, Corran Ban, where a solemn high mass of requiem was sung, the celebrant being Rt. Rev. Monsignor Maurice McDonald, P.P., deacon of the mass, Rev. Patrick McMahon, D.D., of Charlottetown; and sub deacon Rec. Charles McCarthy of Iona. Rev. Bernard Gillis, D.D., assisted the choir.

Her remains were laid to rest in Corran Ban cemetery, Rt. Rev. Monsignor McDonald officiating at the grave. A large congregation of friends and former neighbors assisted in the last obsequies over one whom all had loved and respected.

The pallbearers were four grandsons and two neighbors of the deceased, Frank Trainor, Charles Trainor, Somerled Trainor, Jack Trainor, Frank McIntyre and Hector McIntyre.

HORGAN-MACDONALD - McDonald-Horgan Nuptials
- A quiet but pretty wedding took place at St. Dunstan's Basilica on Tuesday morning, Feb. 9, when Mary Laura, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Horgan, Stanhope, became the bride of James Aeneas McDonald, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. David E. McDonald, Cherry Hill.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. Francis McQuaid who also celebrated the Nuptial Mass.

The bride was becomingly attired in deep blue chiffon velvet with hat and shoes to match.

She was attended by her sister Miss Mary, who wore navy blue. The groom was supported by his cousin, Mr. Walter MacDonald.

Immediately after breakfast at the Queen Hotel the happy couple left by the early train on their honeymoon trip.

On their return they will reside in Cherry Hill.

- At The Charlottetown Hospital on February 8, 1937, to Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Macdonald, Cardigan, twins (boy and girl).

- There passed peacefully to his eternal reward on Jan 6th, Alex C. MacDonald in the 75th year of his age.

Although unable to be about his daily duties for the past few years, owing to an operation in which a limb was amputated he still enjoyed good health, and his sudden demise was a severe shock to his family, and friends.

The patience and fortitude with which he bore his infirmity was exemplary of the true Christian Spirit which characterized his entire life. He was a man of many sterling qualities, of a kind and amiable disposition, honest and upright in all his dealings, always ready with a kind word or deed to help those in distress, and his passing is keenly felt as a distinct loss to the community in which he lived for upwards of forty years.

He leaves to mourn their loss a bereaved widow, four daughters and one son, viz – Sr. St. Flora Mary of St. Vincent's Hospital, Portland, Oregon; Sr. St. Alexander of Seto, Tignish Convent; Tena of Boston. Mass. and Bernadette and Clement at home, one brother Leo of Boston, Mass. also survives.

On Saturday, Jan 9th, the large concourse of sorrowing friends which followed his mortal remains to St. George's Church bore silent testimony of the esteem in which he was held. Requiem mass was sung by the pastor, Rev. C. J. MacDonald who also conducted the services at the grave assisted by Rev. M. J. Rooney of Cardigan.

Interment took place in the adjoining Cemetery beside his little son who predeceased him some years ago.

The pall bearers were W. F. McKinnon, James H. MacDonald, Alex Acorn, John A. McLeod, George McPherson and Agustine MacDonald.

Many Mass cards, spiritual bouquets, and letters of sympathy were gratefully received from friends at home and in the U.S., from Bishop Morrison of Antigonish, N.S., the Srs. of Cong. De Notre Dame and other religious orders.

May his soul rest in peace.

- The death of Mrs. Artemas Coffin occurred on the evening of February 23, at her home in Glenroy. Although in failing health for about a year, only those nearest her realized the critical nature of her illness, and until recently they hoped that her life might be prolonged. . Mrs. Coffin bore her illness with great patience and fortitude. When she learned of her serious condition she accepted with perfect resignation the will of God and longed to be united with her loving Maker. Hers was a saintly death, the echo of a life more than ordinary.

Blessed with an unusual cheerful disposition Mrs. Coffin possessed a sweet serenity, charity and patience and the other virtues which lend such an indescribable charm to the true wife and mother.

Besides her husband, and one daughter, Mrs. Andrew McInnis, Tracadie Cross; and one son James Coffin at home, she also leaves to mourn one sister, Mrs. James McKenna of Glenroy and one brother James McLaughlin, Mt. Stewart.

She had been fortified by the last Sacraments of the Church when her illness became serious; from then till the moment of her death she received all the assistance and consolation that the Holy Mother Church offers to her children. The Rev. George MacCormack visited her almost weekly bringing her Holy Communion.

DEATH: BRUCE-ROBERTSON - IN MEMORIAM - The brittleness of the thread that binds the mortal to immortality was truly exemplified in the unexpected death of Mrs. Lester Robertson (nee Lilian Gertrude Bruce), aged 49 years, which took place at the P. E. Island Hospital on February 9th. The deceased had not been in quite her usual good health for a few weeks prior to entering the above institution for treatment. An operation was deemed advisable and was successful. Mrs. Robertson was making good progress when the unexpected happened which brought matters to a serious climax, and she passed away. The news of the death came with terrific shock to the members of the family and relatives as well as to the community at large.

The remains were forwarded to Souris by rail and met by a large number of friends and conveyed to her home.

She was the daughter of the late James G. and Alice Stewart Bruce, who resides with her son Ray, Red Point.

She had the gift of making and retaining friends, as was clearly demonstrated by the large concourse of friends, who came from all parts of the surrounding districts to pay their tribute of respect to one whom they held in high esteem. She was a devoted member of the United Baptist Church, Kingsboro, and was always ready to help when solicited.

On Friday, February 12th, a short service was held at her late home, after which the body was conveyed to the Baptist church, Kingsboro, where Rev. H. R. Bell officiated. Appropriate music was rendered. The hymns used were "In the Garden", "Going Down Valley", "What a Gathering".

MACKENZIE - Islander Receives Papal Honor
- The announcement has come from Rome that Rev. J. C. MacKenzie, pastor of Nelson, B. C., has been raised to the rank of Domestic Prelate. The investiture will be held in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Nelson, about the end of April.

Monsignor MacKenzie was born at Vernon Bridge, and is a graduate of St. Dunstan's College in the class of 1905. He studied theology in St. Bernard's Seminary, Rochester, N.Y., and in St. Thomas Seminary, Denver, Colo. and was ordained in Vancouver in 1911 by the late Archbishop McNeil. Immediately he was appointed pastor of Revelstoke, B. C., with many miles of territory and many missions under his care. For several years he lead the life of a traveling missioner through this part of the Rockies. He remained in this pastorate for almost fifteen years, when he was appointed to Nelson at the death of the late Msgr. Althoff.

Monsignor MacKenzie celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of his ordination last September, and was signally honored at that time by his parishioners and by his brother priests of the Dioceses of Nelson and Vancouver. Shortly afterwards he paid a brief visit to his native province, where he visited his mother, Mrs. Elizabeth MacKenzie, Rochford St., Charlottetown. His many friends rejoice in his reception of this new honor.

MACISAAC - George D. McIsaac
- The death occurred In The Charlottetown Hospital yesterday of George D. McIsaac, the 17 year old son of Peter A. McIsaac, M. P. P., and Mrs. McIsaac of Souris Line Road. The young man was taken to the hospital on Monday last suffering from meningitis.

He received the best possible medical and nursing attention, and although critically ill, rallied on Thursday, giving hope for his recovery.

Yesterday, however, he took a relapse, and he rapidly sank until the end came.

The deceased was a bright and intelligent youth with an aptitude for motor mechanics, and last year was engaged in driving a truck during the construction of the Rustico highway.

He was a general favourite in the community and with all who knew him.

He leaves to mourn besides his parents two brothers, Hugh and Willie, and two sisters, Agnita and Helen at home.

To the bereaved who mourn the loss of a dear one, who was called away when on the threshold of manhood, the sincere sympathy of our people will be extended.

DEATH: MACPHEE - IN MEMORIAM - When news of the death of James MacPhee, Big Pond, Dec. 4th, spread throughout the surrounding country many were the expressions of genuine sorrow, for in his passing had gone one of the oldest and most highly respected gentlemen.

Mr. MacPhee had reached the advanced age of ninety. Until a year previous to his death he had enjoyed good health in a measure bestowed upon few people. About that time, however, weaknesses incident to old age began to manifest themselves. First, partial loss of sight, an affliction terrible enough to daunt even the bravest forced him to curtail many of his activities. This was followed by other disorders of such a nature as to sap gradually the strength of the age-old body, and so leave an easy prey to the final attack of the illness.

During his long period of semi-blindness and sickness Mr. MacPhee showed a splendid Christian attitude in the resigned spirit with which he accepted his sufferings. Sensing the approach of the end, and, while enduring recurring attacks of pain unmurmuringly, he quietly prepared to meet his Maker. A devout Roman Catholic he was sustained by frequent visits of his devoted pastor, Father MacPherson. The latter it was who administered to him the last rites of his Church. Thus fortified he met his death in a becoming manner.

James MacPhee was born and raised at Big Pond. In early life he learned carpentry becoming proficient in this craft. A ship-carpenter he plied his trade at Souris, P.E.I., and Noank, Conn., U.S.A., for many years. A lover of the sea he also engaged in the fishing industry sailing in vessels from various Island ports. His later life he spent wholly on his farm at Big Pond.

Mr. MacPhee was much liked and esteemed by all who knew him. A sociable man he was very glad to welcome his friends at his home where he showed fine hospitality. A good conversationalist he could entertain his visitors with many interesting and amusing stories of bygone days. In his role of neighbor he proved himself a good citizen, one ready and willing to lend a helping hand at all times.

Mr. MacPhee married Miss Mary C. MacDonald, Morell, P.E.I. From this union nine children were born of whom eight survive, one son James Charles, having died in boyhood. Mrs. MacPhee predeceased her husband by eight years. The sons and daughters living are: Allan, Leverston, Me.; George, New York; Chester, Big Pond; (Louise) Mrs. H. E. Saunders, New York; (Marie) Mrs. A. Foley, Boston; (Evelyn) Mrs. Evelyn MacDonald, Boston; (Marion) Mrs. E. LeBlanc, Boston, and Irene, Brooklyn, N.Y.

The funeral was held on Dec. 6th to St. Margaret's Church, where Mass was sung by Rev. K. C. MacPherson, thence to St. Margaret's Cemetery.

The pallbearers were Peter MacPhee, Michael MacPhee, Ronald MacDonald, Jos. D. MacIsaac, Neil MacIsaac, and Albert MacEachern. The hearse driver was Leo S. McCormac.

- Death came with unexpected fleetness to Mrs. Theodore Stewart, of Kingsboro, P. E. I., on the morning of March first. She had performed her usual morning tasks, and was sitting by the stove knitting, when she was suddenly stricken and without regaining consciousness, passed away. She was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William W. Stewart, Kingsboro. Over a year ago she underwent a critical operation in the P. E. Island Hospital, but gradually gained in strength sufficient to care for the needs of her household. Within the last month prior to her death she gave evidence of failing health, but her immediate passing was not expected so soon, or so sudden. Mrs. Stewart was devoted to her family. Kind-hearted and generous, her home was always a place of welcome to friends and neighbours.

Forty-four years ago she united with the Kingsboro Baptist Church and was baptized by the late Rev. R. H. Bishop. She is survived by her husband, two daughters and one son, Theodore Stewart, Mrs. Reginald Rose, South Lake, Mrs. Percy McDonald, and Ernest, of Kingsboro, besides four brothers and one sister – Charles and Harvey, Kingsboro, Seth, Everett, Mass., Henry, New Hampshire, and Mrs. Charles Young, Everett, Mass. Six sisters predeceased her.

Funeral services were held at the home and grave, the Rev. H. R. Bell officiating.

Although the day was exceptionally cold, a large congregation assembled to pay their tribute of respect to the departed and express words of sympathy with the members of the sorrowing family. The hymns chosen were "Shall We Meet," "In the Sweet Bye and Bye", "Have Thine Own Way Lord".

The floral tributes were:

- Passed peacefully away at his home at Cable Head East on Saturday, February 27, 1937, Capt. John D. McDonald in the 78th year of his age.

Capt. McDonald who was born at Chepstow, near the town of Souris, had left his home when quite young and for about 30 years was Captain of a Gloucester schooner engaged in the cod fishing on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. He was one of the successful captains and also one of the Commission of Master Mariners of the Port of Gloucester for many years.

Capt. McDonald was a man of sterling qualities, his word was always his bond. He married 48 years ago Miss Catherine McDonald of Cable Head East then residing in Boston. Five children comprised their family, namely, Margaret, Helen, who both died in infancy, John A. at home, Fabian J. who died several years ago and Marion, Mrs. Lee Auerbach, R. N., New York City.

- At Armadale, on Saturday, April 17th inst. an old and respected citizen passed to his eternal reward by the death of Ronald J. McCormack, at the age of 85.

One of the older members of the large pioneer family of the late James (Ban) McCormack and his wife (nee Margaret Walker), the deceased as a young man went away to the United States. Finding employment with a large lumbering concern in New Hampshire, he spent several years as an expert in their chemical department, when they embarked upon the manufacture of paper by the sulphuric-digester process. With that highly technical business from its inception, he could relate many very interesting experiences of early difficulties encountered and obstacles overcome, in the initial stages of what has since become one of the world's most stupendous industries.

Returning to the Island over thirty years ago, he established a home for himself quite near to the paternal homestead. Although living entirely alone, his house was kept as comfortable and cosy as any in the neighborhood. Here friends both old and young were always assured a hearty welcome – a sentiment fully reciprocated by all who enjoyed acquaintance with him when those visits were returned.

Of a hardy constitution, he was never known to suffer from any serious illness. But ten days before his death he contracted a severe cold, and it soon became plain that this was the beginning of the end. Friends and neighbours provided all the comfort possible, and devout reception of the Last Sacraments prepared him for the end, which came calm and peacefully on the date already mentioned.

The funeral to St. Charles Church on Monday morning, April 19th, was largely attended. The hearse was driven by Mr. P. A. Cahill and the following acted as pallbearers: John D. McCormack, James E. McInnis, William Power, William D. McKinnon and Wilfred McPhee.

To surviving relatives and friends sincere sympathy is extended.

May he rest in peace.

- On Feb 12, 1937, there passed peacefully away at his home in Blooming Point, John N. MacDonald, in his 82nd year.

His long and active life was a model of integrity and uprightness. He adhered strictly to his Christian ideals of honor and at his demise the community mourns the loss of one of the best neighbors it has ever known. Amazingly energetic and industrious, his splendid physique carried him through a lifetime of arduous toil to the enjoyment of a ripe old age. It is truly to the men of his type that we of to-day owe the share of prosperity and comfort that is ours. By his death another link with the early days of Blooming Point has been severed, another stalwart builder of our community has been removed, and "finis" has been written to another chapter of pioneer life.

He leaves to mourn one daughter, Mrs. McPherson, Roxbury, Mass.; also five sons; Rev. George MacDonald, Brae, P. E. I., Murdock, of Boston, Mass., Ronald, in Buffalo, N. Y., and Alphonsus and Alexander at home. He is also survived by two brothers, Michael, of Charlottetown, and Allan Joseph, Staten Island, N. Y., to all of whom is extended the sincere sympathy of a wide circle of friends.

May his soul rest in peace.

In his earlier years Mr. Mossey followed the trade of shoemaker, and later settled on the farm on which he died. He was a man of sterling character, always ready even in old age to assist the sick and the dying, and by his good example and earnest teachings, has left with his family and associates that which will never be erased.

McAulay of Souris Line Road who passed peacefully away on the morning of April 11th.

DEATH: MACDONALD - WILLIAM W. McDONALD - SACKVILLE, July 20 - William W. McDonald, who has been seriously ill for some time, passed away at his home here on Saturday night. He was born in P. E. Island in 1871, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Angus McDonald, and for the last thirty-five years had resided in Sackville where he conducted a plumbing business until he retired about two years ago on account of ill-health. He was well known and highly esteemed in the community and his passing will be keenly felt by a large circle of friends.

He is survived by his wife, who was formerly Miss Maud A. Stokes, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John C. Stokes, Middle Sackville; one brother, J. D. McDonald, Saint John; two sisters, Mrs.Phillip Melanson, Jamaica Plains, N. Y., and Mrs. Jack McMurray, Halifax. The funeral service will be held at St. Vincent Church at 9.30 a.m. on Wednesday.

- On Tuesday, July 13th, 1937, the people of Bristol and vicinity were shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden and unexpected death of Alfred R. MacDonald, after an illness of four weeks, but at no time was his life thought to be in danger although at times he suffered great pain.

Mr. MacDonald, who was nearing his 25th birthday, was the son of James F. and Katie (Findlay) MacDonald, and was a general favourite with all who knew him, possessing excellent qualities of mind and heart. He was quiet in manner, yet he made friends easily, of sterling character and a good practical Catholic. In the home where he is sorely missed, he was kind, thoughtful and loving, sober and unselfish. He was tenderly nursed by a devoted mother and everything possible was done to spare his life, but a sudden turn for the worse on the morning of his death brought to a close another Christian life and his soul went home to rest with God.

His survivors are his parents, two brothers, Frank, in Halifax, and Rupert at home, besides four sisters, Margaret, Mary, Eunice, Teresa and Catherine.

His funeral was held on Thursday morning from his late home to the Little Flower Church, Morell, where a Requiem High Mass was sung for the repose of the soul by the pastor, Rev. Joseph Rooney, from whom he received the last rites of the Church. Burial was in the adjoining cemetery.

The bearers were Walter A. O'Brien, George Drake, Angus Lapierre, George Baker, Charles Lapierre and Ralph McEwen.

He was an extensive reader and was well informed on all topics. Deeply interested in machinery he was ever ready to give a helping hand and many of his neighbors found it very convenient to call on "John" to set their engines right.

He built a rotary saw mill where he sawed laths, shingles and lumber. This also was a great convenience to his neighboring farmers and surrounding districts saving them from hauling lumber to Stanchel, Crapaud or Tryon.

His funeral took place to St. Malachais Church, Kinkora, on Saturday, July 10th. High Mass was sung by the pastor, Rev. M. J. Smith after which his remains were laid to rest beside those of his wife and daughter Hilda who predeceased him some years ago.

The family are very grateful to all those who sent Mass Cards and Letters of Sympathy also to those who in any way helped them in their sad bereavement.

May his soul rest in peace.

- At Bristol, Aug. 22nd Mary F. MacDonald, dearly beloved daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James F. MacDonald, aged 20 years, 7 months. Funeral Tuesday morning to Little Flower Church, Morell.

- At Elmira, August 20th, to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Campbell, a daughter, Gertrude Frances.

- On one of those lovely midsummer mornings that she loved to see, there was laid away in the warm, dry earth by tender hands – scarcely yet accustomed to the world's hard toil – a little flower of Faith and Hope and Patience – all that was mortal of Mary F. MacDonald, after being loaned to earth by God for the short space of twenty years which she lived perfectly, ever close to Him, she kept herself unspotted by the world and all its fearfulness – a model of sweet girlish innocence.

Her soul's house of clay began to crumble three years ago, and in those more than one thousand long days and longer nights she never complained, always hopeful that her health would soon be restored, until the sudden death of her brother Alfred a few weeks previous, she gave up the long struggle, and in her wise, quiet way, made perfect by suffering, she told those about her, "I will soon be with Alfred. Dear God come and take me". On Sunday, August the 22nd she received her summons and in her little wind swept room lighted by the rays of the setting sun and the flickering wax taper in a small white hand, Death touched her so gently that those watching could not believe that her spirit had fled.

It was to be the privilege of her life long friend and neighbor, Miss Mary O'Brien, to summon for the last time a representative of Christ, and soon her pastor, Rev. Father Rooney, came, bearing once more the Bread of Angels. "Hurry Father", she said with smiling eyes, "I want to die". After she had received her God in the Blessed Sacrament, the beloved Priest left her with an assurance of her prayers for him from Heaven. One hour later time ceased for her and eternity began.

Miss MacDonald was the daughter of James F. and Katie (Findlay) MacDonald of Bristol, where she was born and spent the most of her life. In her school days she was a bright and apt scholar. She attended St. Joseph's Convent, Charlottetown for some years and was loved by her teacher, Sister St. Bernadette, and was a daily communicant at St. Dunstan's Basilica throughout many Lenten seasons.

Her tasks, no matter of what nature were always done well and when she left the world she seemed to be more weary of its monotones than ill.

She is survived by her parents and two brothers, Frank in Halifax and Rupert at home, and by four sisters, Margaret, Eunice, Teresa, and Catherine.

Her funeral was held on August the 24th to the Little Flower Church, Morell, where her beautiful form was borne by Franklin Kelly, Gerald McAdam, Ansylum Lapierre, Sterling McEwen, Walter A. O'Brien, and Cyrus Lapierre. After a Requiem High Mass, sung by Rev. George McDonald, "Mamie" was laid to rest in the shadow of God's Temple, the consecrated ground reserved for all who die in the Lord.

Close beside her brother Alfred they laid her – another child beloved of God and designated to suffer cruelly for a short time on earth, and whose grave is still damp with the tears of bereaved sorrowing relatives and friends, who were called upon to surrender him just six weeks before.

Rest happily in God.

- It was August 11th, and its last hour was about to usher in a new day when the Angel of Death, too seldom styled the Messenger of Everlasting Peace, gently severed the ties that bound a loving father to his devoted children. A great sorrow thus came to the home of John J. Campbell. For him it was, in truth, the vision of Light Uncreated, but for his family and friends it meant a vacant niche never to be filled until the dawn of eternal reunion.

To the deceased had been dedicated, during nine decades, the respect and devotion of a community, and so really was he enshrined in the hearts of the citizens of Elmira and vicinity that his passing from their midst seems more a dream than a reality. Mr. Campbell was a born leader with a personality befitting that endowment. Likewise did his character manifest a virility that increased as he passed from boyhood to manhood. He lived the motto "For God and Country." No sacrifice was considered worthy to be compared with the glory to God or the advancement of public good that might accrue therefrom. Marriage was to him a true vocation, and a picture of his home, where, for forty years, he was surrounded by a cherished wife and children, proved that he made that vocation the chief aim of his life. Nor were the members of his own immediate family the sole beneficiaries of his natural gifts. Let us quote from a letter which reached him a few days before his death and which was penned by one who has tasted the sweets of success. " . . . . I want you to know what influence you have been in my life for well nigh fifty years. In my boyhood and young manhood you were to me the ideal of a Christian gentleman. The high ideals which you not only professed but lived, prompted me to aim to imitate you. I vividly recall that as a boy I sat at your feet and admiringly listened to you as you read the orations of Thomas D'Arcy McGee. From this experience I was stimulated to a love of worthwhile literature. I was beside you when you proffered your vows to the noble woman, who, at your side, established a model Christian family. Your life has been a successful one, for you have been God's minister in the natural order in giving to Him and to the Church a number of sons and daughters who are an honor to their community. Even if in the course of nature, God may call you, you need not fear judgment, for your whole life has been dedicated to the love of Him who bestowed upon you the gift of stalwart faith. . . . . ."

Friends this valiant gentleman could count among the young and the old. Opposing interests, were they of race, creed or politics excluded none. The apostolate of encouragement he is declared to have practiced with the greatest zeal, particularly among the youth of his day. His home was ever a solace to the sincere of character, and no matter who the guest, his or her concerns found sympathetic solution in that sharpened intellect whose interests were world-wide. "His like it will be difficult to find in our day" was the sentiment expressed by the countless visitors who came to brighten the hours, the doubly long hours, during which he lay on his bed of illness and pain. Six long months had run their course before his day of deliverance dawned. During that time every care and attention were lavished upon him by a devoted daughter-in-law, Mrs. Columba Campbell, who unwearingly supplied his every need. He had in his competent physician, Doctor Augustus McDonald, a personal friend and intimate of the family for over thirty years, a worthy physician indeed who still strove to stay death while he could already hear the eternal gong sounding the departure of his patient. Those who witnessed the untiring zeal of his chief spiritual aid, the Reverend Ronald J. McDonald, will not soon forget their impressions of the pastor's absolute self-forgetfulness in the discharge of his ministry to the sick. Well could the dying man assert when interrogated concerning his spiritual needs, "I have had all that the Church can give me for the journey." That "all" he received at the hands of Father McDonald. Through the fervor of the preacher, the Reverend George Bradley of the Society of Jesus, there was likewise vouchsafed him the overflowing graces of a mission.

Throughout his long career Mr. Campbell considered nothing too great nor too insignificant to offer to God. When the signs of budding religious vocations appeared in the family he nobly declared. "I should be supremely happy if God called all my children to serve Him in religion. I know He Himself would care for their dear mother and me." The Spouse of religious souls is far too great to be outdone in generosity. It was therefore fitting that His faithful servant be comforted in his last illness by the presence of his daughters, Sister St. Bernard of the Rosary, Notre Dame Academy, Staten Island, New York, and Sister St. Therese of the Holy Face, Thomas D'Arcy McGee High School, Montreal. Both sisters are members of the Congregation de Notre Dame of. Montreal. Circumstances did not permit of the former's remaining to the end, but the latter had the consolation of seeing the noblest of fathers set sail in the barque of confidence and love toward the Eternal Shore, where, with his loved wife, he awaits God's own home for a never-ending family reunion.

Though the course of Mr. Campbell's illness was long the end came suddenly and thus deprived his daughers, Mrs. Harrison Ching and Mrs. Rod McLean, Somerville, Mass., of the consolation of seeing him again in life, but his memory will ever exert the greatest influence on their lives. Two months previous, his daughter Marjorie journeyed home from Somerville to assist in the physical care of him to whom she had proved her affection by sacrificing all interests in order to be a companion in his lonely years. Two, sons, Joseph, of the Canadian National Railways, Elmira, and Columba, at home tendered their devotion in every conceivable way, and by their promise of fidelity to a father's high ideals permitted him to quit this exile with anxiety. Some time before his death Mr. Campbell expressed the desire to see his temporal affairs so arranged that his entire attention might be given to God. Those who witnessed the taper of his life flicker lower and lower could not fail to believe that his prayer was granted, and they were forcibly reminded of Father Faber's assurance to such souls: "Only serve Jesus out of love, – and while your eyes are yet unclosed, before the whiteness of death is yet settled on your face, or those around you sure that that last gentle breathing was indeed your last. Oh what an unspeakable surprise you will have had at the judgment seat of your dearest Love, while the songs of heaven are breaking on your ears, and the glory of God is dawning on your eyes, to fade away no more for ever!"

The peace that had been the portion of the dying was reflected in his countenance to the consolation of the hundreds who came to view his mortal remains. His funeral was worthy of his devotion to his community. High Mass of Requiem was sung by the Pastor, Reverend Ronald J. McDonald. Present in the sanctuary were the Reverend A. L. Sinnott, pastor of Rollo Bay Church, and the Reverend F. L. Mullally, pastor of Sturgeon Church, both intimate friends of the family. From the choir loft came the familiar voice or the former pastor, the Reverend Doctor Bernard Gillis, who had come from Charlottetown to sing the Mass. Dr. Gillis was assisted by the St. Columba choir.

The honorary pall-bearers were: Messrs. Stephen Keefe, Thomas Pierce, Raymond McPhee, William Harris, Joseph Bailey and George McEachern. The active pall-bearers were: Messrs. J. E. Dingwell, Daniel Murphy, Willie Fraser, Pius Campbell, John Fraser and J. F. Mossey. The funeral procession was competently conducted by Mr. George E. McDonald, South Lake, assisted by Mr. Thomas Harris, Elmira.

The ever-increasing number of Mass offerings which have been collected to form a bouquet of priceless spiritual flowers proves that the affection or Mr. Campbell's friends would speedily admit him to the ranks of God's saints in heaven.

GEORGE-KELLY - George - Kelly
- An event of rather extraordinary interest took place at St. Bonaventure Church, Tracadie, on Wednesday, August 18th, when Miss Grace George of Blooming Point, was united in the matrimonial bonds with James Kelly, of that locality.

The nuptial Mass was celebrated by Monsignor Maurice McDonald, and the Tracadie choir rendered hymns appropriate to the occasion.

The popular young bride had her charms enhanced by a dress of pure white satin with a blue georgette cape and a large white picture hat. She carried a bouquet of sweet peas and baby's breath. Her wardrobe also included a white traveling suit and accessories to match.

Miss Marie McDonald, who attended the bride, was attired in a peach chiffon dress with white accessories.

The duties of groom's attendant were carried out in a very capable manner by William Kelly, brother of the groom.

After the ceremony a delicious breakfast was served to the wedding party and their immediate relatives and friends at the home of the groom's father, Maurice Kelly. After the repast and incidental merriment was over the married couple and their attendants motored to Charlottetown. After a dinner at the Queen Hotel they visited several of the Island's beauty spots and returned in the evening to an appetizing supper and dance at the home of the bride, where dancing and singing were indulged in until the "wee sma' hours."

The bride, who is a daughter of Mrs. and the late Alfred George, and a niece of Senator McDonald, of Cardigan, had a distinguished career as a student both of Notre Dame Academy and Prince of Wales College from 1933 to 1936, where it will be remembered she carried off a number of scholarships and prizes.

The groom is a young farmer of Blooming Point and is imbibed with those qualities of thrift and industry which are so necessary to success.

Their friends and neighbors therefore have no doubt when prophesying for them a successful and a happy journey through life.

- There passed peacefully away at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, on August 23rd, James W. Horgan, of Stanhope, in his 28th year.

Jim, as he was familiarly called, was a young man endowed with exceptional mental qualities, a sterling character and splendid physique, for whom the future seemed to hold great promise.

He matriculated to Prince of Wales College at fifteen, and the next year secured a teacher's license. After teaching for three years in Pleasant Grove School, he entered St. Dunstan's University where, by his genial disposition and application to duty, he won the respect and esteem of all. Naturally strong and robust, he was a valued member of the 'Saints' senior football team, and his aggressiveness on the field was a telling factor in many a hard-fought game. He graduated from St. Dunstan's with honors in May, 1933, and was successful in obtaining his B. A. degree.

He bore his last illness with true Christian fortitude and although his suffering was intense and towards the last almost incessant, he was never heard to complain. Indeed, his friends were surprised to hear that he was going to Montreal for treatment. An operation on August 22nd, however, revealed that his ailment was far more serious than even he suspected, and he succumbed on the following day.

The courage and calmness which he exhibited when told that his case was hopeless were typical of his whole life. Turning to the attending physician, he said: "I don't mind dying, but I thought I came here to be cured."

Taken in his very prime, he had much to live for, but he was perfectly resigned to God's will, and so, comforted and strengthened by the last rites of the Roman Catholic Church, he passed peacefully to his eternal reward.

His funeral was held to St. Eugene's Church, Covehead Road, and the large attendance testified to the esteem in which he was held. His pastor, Rev. F. McQuaid, celebrated the Requiem Mass and also conducted the services at the grave.

The honorary pall-bearers were Joseph Maye, Wilfred Doyle, Lloyd Shaw, Russel Lawson, Warren Marshall and Kenneth MacDonald.

The active pall-bearers were: Dr. L. Duffy, Reginald McKenna, Kenneth MacMillan, Arthur McGuigan, James J. Coyle and Ted Butler, all former classmates of the deceased.

Besides his sorrowing parents, he leaves to mourn, four sisters: Mrs. James MacDonald, Cherry Hill, and Mary, Estelle and Rita at home; also four brothers: Thomas, of Charlottetown; Jack, at present teaching at Mt. Stewart, and Patrick and Joseph, at home. One brother, Michael, predeceased him on Sept. 1st, 1936.

Their many friends unite in extending to the grief-stricken family the most sincere sympathy in this, their second sad bereavement within the year. R. I. P.

- The community of South Lake and surrounding districts were greatly grieved on the morning of July the first when word was received that Harry MacDonald had passed away at the P. E. Island Hospital.

The deceased who had had two operations previously, entered that institution in the hope of further treatment, but upon medical examination it was deemed advisable not to operate further.

All kind nursing was to no avail and at the close of two short weeks his spirit passed on to higher realms above.

Harry, as he was familiarly known, was a young man well liked by all who knew him. Although cut off in the prime of manhood he had accomplished the work of one much older. His life was one of industry and to be able to work was his greatest ambition.

During his short life time he was primarily engaged in the milling business but during the last few years he had devoted much of his time to farming, especially to the raising of certified seed potatoes in which branch he made a marked success.

There are left to cherish the memory of a kind and devoted husband, his wife nee (Ethel Enman), also his father, two brothers, Percy of Kingsboro and Charlie of South Lake, one sister, Ruby, wife of Andrew Banks, Annandale.

The funeral, which was one of the largest ever seen in the community, was held on Sunday afternoon. After a short service at the home the remains were conveyed to the Kingsboro Baptist Church, of which the deceased was a member, where the service was conducted by the pastor, Rev. H. R. Bell, who spoke, from the text:- "No man liveth unto himself and no man dieth unto himself".

Appropriate music was rendered most feelingly by the choir and congregation. The remains were tenderly laid to rest in the family plot at Kingsboro. Rev. Mr. Titus assisted in the service at the grave.

The beautiful floral tributes which covered the casket bore a silent tribute of respect from friends far and near.

Following were the pall bearers: Geo. E. MacDonald, E. C. Dingwell, Elmer Fraser, James R. MacDonald and D. L. MacDonald, all neighbors of the departed.

To the bereaved sincere sympathy is extended.

- Mrs. George Mullally died at her home, Souris West, on Saturday, August 21st.

She was born at Fortune the daughter of the late John Cooney and Catherine Conway.

After attending the district school, St. Mary's Convent, Souris, and Prince of Wales College, she taught school for a short time in this Province, then migrated to California, where she taught for some years. She returned to her native province and married George Mullally in 1929.

Early in July she was taken suddenly ill and removed to The Charlottetown Hospital, where despite the best procurable medical and nursing care, she slowly sank, till on the above mentioned date, her soul returned to its Creator.

Besides her grief stricken husband and five small children, she is survived by two brothers, James, a dentist in Montesano, Washington, and Neil, a lawyer in San Francisco, California, and four sisters, Mrs. Harold James and Mrs. Leo Riley, Catherine and Rebecca, all of California. These three last mentioned had the happiness of helping to care for her in her last illness.

A loyal, helpful and affectionate friend, a careful, industrious and hospitable housewife and a kind untiring and self-sacrificing mother, her death has caused great sorrow to her numerous friends, especially to her bereaved husband and little children. Her wise and ready councils will be missed not only in her home but also in the various parish societies of which she was always an active and valuable, but unassuming member.

The very large number of messages of sympathy and Mass Cards, which were so kindly sent and gratefully received bore eloquent testimony of the esteem in which her numerous friends held for the late Mrs. Mullally.

Her funeral took place to St. Alexis Church, where a solemn requiem Mass was celebrated by her pastor, Rev. A. L. Sinnott, assisted by Rev. E. L. Murray as deacon and Rev. C. McCarthy as sub-deacon, and Rev. E. Clinton as Master of Ceremonies. Revs. R. J. McDonald and L. P. Callaghan were present in the sanctuary. Her mortal remains were laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery, there to await the archangel's call.

May she rest in peace.

- Many friends and relatives throughout the Province were shocked to hear of the death of Adele MacDonald age 18, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. MacDonald, Mermaid, which occurred at the City Hospital, August 15th.

Stricken with pleurisy and meningitis, Adele entered the Hospital the previous Monday. All the medical skill and kind nursing provided was of no avail, and on that beautiful feast of "The Assumption" her gentle spirit passed peacefully away.

Naturally strong and robust Adele was a valuable member of the Abbie Sisters Hockey Team, and her aggressiveness on the ice was a telling factor in many a hard fought game.

Adele was a girl of strong christian principles, and sweet and gentle nature. The courage and calmness which she exhibited when told that her case was hopeless were typical of her whole life.

She will be greatly missed by her friends, who she always greeted with the same pleasant smile, but most of all in her own home, where she was always a source of inspiration and comfort. Taken in her very prime, she had much to live for, but she was perfectly resigned to God's will and so comforted and strengthened by the last rites of the Roman Catholic Church she passed peacefully to her eternal reward.

Besides her sorrowing parents, she leaves to mourn two sisters, Marjorie and Dolores, also five brothers Harvey of the Royal Bank, Summerside; Gerald, Gordon, Kenneth and Desmond at home.

The largely attended funeral, Mass Cards, beautiful floral tributes and messages of sympathy expressed the esteem in which Adele was held by all who knew her.

MACDONALD - Appointment of Islander Applauded by Judge
- (Long Island Press, Oct. 2) - County Judge, Charles S. Colden, president of the Queens College Association, today hailed the appointment of Ernest S. Macdonald, Jamaica banker, to the Board of Higher Education. Judge Colden said:

"I am glad to see Mayor LeGuardia has seen the need for appointing a Queen's representative on the board a man who has a borough consciousness and who understands local problems."

Rabbi Joshua A. Goldberg of Astoria, vice-president of the association, also lauded the selection of Macdonald, Rabbi Goldberg declared :

"The appointment of Mr. MacdonaId points the way to harmony in the Queen's College controversy. It means the opening of the institution in Flushing on Monday will not be clouded by differences that can easily be ironed out."

Rabbi Goldberg referred to the controversy between John T. Flynn or Bayside, also a member of the Board of Higher Education, and the Queen's College Association over the number of students to be admitted to Queen's College.

The Very Rev. John J. Clarke of Flushing was not available for comment, being in Baltimore. Monsignor Clarke, however, is reported to have been heartily in favor of the appointment of Macdonald.

Macdonald declared he is elated by the appointment and will work diligently to meet the trust which he feels LaGuardia has placed in him.

Macdonald, a resident of Kew Gardens, is vice-president in charge of the Queen's office of the Bank of Manhatten Company and maintains his offices in Jamaica. He succeeds Dr. Laurence L. Cassidy, also a Kew Gardens resident.

Macdonald has been a resident of Queen's for 23 years. He is 49, married and lives with his wife and two children at 3-99 Talbot place.

He is treasurer and director of the Queens Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the Knights of Columbus, Queens Valley Golf Club, Jamaica Club, Kew Gardens Club, American Legion, Elks, and the 40 Wall Street Luncheon Club.

Queens still has another vacancy on the Board of Higher Education, the place vacated by Lewis Mumford when he moved from Sunnyside to Westchester.

Members of the higher board serve without pay and direct the policies governing municipal colleges.

(Mr. Macdonald is the son or Mrs. J. B. Macdonald, 171 Dorchester Street, Charlottetown).
DEATH: MACDONALD - IN MEMORIAM - MRS. D. J. MACDONALD - A deep gloom was cast over the community of Vernon when the news spread of the sudden demise of Mrs. D. J. MacDonald. She was in the Post Office as usual on Saturday and on Monday her spirit passed on to Him who gave it. A woman who during her earlier life had done service in nursing, she was, during her period of married life often called to the homes of neighbors to give aid to the ill and injured.

She was of a retiring nature with a mild but loving disposition which endeared her to all who had the pleasure of forming her acquaintance.

Being a devout Roman Catholic, she received the last rites of the Church she loved, administered by the Rev. Joseph Trainor, Vernon River.

Despite the unfavourable morning a large concourse of friends accompanied her remains to Saint Joachim's Church, Vernon River, where Requiem High Mass was celebrated by Rev. Joseph Trainor, assisted by the pastor, Rev. P. D. McGuigan, and Rev. J. C. MacDonald.

Besides a sorrowing husband she leaves to mourn one brother, John A. McDonald, Allisary, also two sisters, Mrs. Nellie McDonald and Miss Marion, who resided with her for the past few years.

The pall-bearers were: George McPhee, James Nlcholson, Wilfred Furness, Newman Fraser, William C. MacDonald and Milton Furness.

"Rest In Peace."

WIGHT-MACDONALD - MacDonald - Wight
- An event of much interest took place in St. James' Church, Georgetown, P. E. I., on Monday morning, Sept. 20, when George Joseph, son of Mr. and Mrs. Allan MacDonald, and Martha Mildred, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William D. Wight, both of Georgetown, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony. Mrs. (Dr.) LaCoursiere played the Wedding March and the Children of Mary sang very beautiful hymns during the ceremony and Nuptial Mass, which was celebrated by Rev. O. Kiggins, P. P. The bride looked sweet in a white satin dress with lace yoke and sleeves, made in princess lines with Peter Pan collar. She wore a white crepe hat, coronet style with small veil and wreath. She carried a mother of pearl rosary, gift of the Children of Mary.

The bridesmaid, Miss Eileen Wight, sister of the bride looked very pretty dressed in figured sheer with white hat and accessories.

The groomsman was Mr. George MacCormac, cousin of the groom. The groom's gift to the bride was a beautiful cross and chain, to the groom a set of gold cuff-links and the bridesmaid a handsome rosary.

After receiving hearty felicitations from their friends at the church, the bridal party motored to the home or the bride's parents, where a sumptuous breakfast was in readiness. Only the very immediate relatives were present.

Some time afterward, the bridal party, along with some of the happy couple's brothers and sisters, motored to Charlottetown, where they had dinner.

Leaving their friends in town the bride and groom set out on a short trip through the Maritime Provinces.

Previous to her marriage the bride was tendered a miscellaneous shower by her many friends in Georgetown. She was the recipient of many and varied gifts.

The Children of Mary Society also greatly surprised her by calling a special meeting and in a very capable manner carried out a brief program, which included the reading or very touching address to the bride by Mrs. Percy Boudreault, and the presentation of a mother of pearl rosary by Miss Genevieve Soloman. The bride is a graduate nurse of The Charlottetown Hospital and by her sunny disposition and kind patience has made many friends for herself through her nursing profession. The Nurses' Alumnae, of which the bride is a member, presented her with a beautiful floor lamp. For the past two years she has been practising her profession in one of the hospitals in Boston. A telegram of congratulations and sincere wishes was received on her wedding day from the Chief of the staff and Superintendent.

A Mass offering and sincere wishes were also received from the good Sisters of The Charlottetown Hospital.

The groom is a prosperous young man employed in the Bridge and Building Department of the C. N. R. The popularity of the young couple is evidenced by the numerous gifts and expressions of good wishes received from so many friends who wish them many years of happy wedded life.

MACINTYRE - PROVINCE MOURNS THE DEATH OF FATHER MACINTYRE - Venerable and Beloved Clergyman Passed Away on Sunday Morning in his 81st Year.
- Prince Edward Island today mourns the loss of another beloved resident in the person of Rev. Angus J. MacIntyre, who passed away about 8 o'clock yesterday morning at the Sacred Heart Home in this city.

Father MacIntyre retired from active parochial duties in 1922 and since then has been a resident of Charlottetown, for thirteen years at the Bishop's residence, and the remainder of the time at the Sacred Heart Home.

Seven or eight years ago Father MacIntyre was seriously injured in an automobile accident when the car in which he was driving was hit by a train at the Experimental Farm crossing, but thanks to his remarkable physique, he recovered from the effects of the accident.

In the autumn of 1936 he took ill and was a patient at The Charlottetown Hospital. His condition at one time became so critical that it was feared that he would not survive, but he made a surprising and almost miraculous recovery, and on Christmas Eve, 1936, he was able to officiate at Midnight Mass, and in January of this year he left the hospital and was able to be about as usual.

This autumn, however, he was again stricken with illness, which he bore with his true Christian resignation and cheerfulness until he passed from time to eternity.

On Saturday, November 13th, he observed his 80th birthday and received many congratulatory messages not only from friends in this province, but throughout other parts of Canada.

Whilst Father MacIntyre will be remembered as a faithful and devoted pastor and held in high regard by all our people irrespective of their religious beliefs, he was widely known as a great friend of the children. He had always a smile and a pat on the head for them as he met them on the street. He mingled with them in school and at their play, and many a gift this kindly clergyman has bestowed upon the little ones.

After retiring from active clerical duties, Father MacIntyre continued to maintain a deep interest in the affairs of the day, and was a familiar figure at various public functions. His fine intellectual attainments, his keen sense of humor, combined with his characteristic kindliness, won for him hosts of friends.


A nephew of Right Rev. Peter MacIntyre, third bishop of Charlottetown, Father MacIntyre was born in the parish of St. Margaret's, P. E. I., November 13th, 1857.

He was educated at St. Margaret's School and at St. Dunstan's University. In 1879, still a youth, he went to Rome to study for the priesthood at the Italian Propaganda College.

In February, 1883 he was ordained priest in the Roman Basilica of St. John Lateran. During his stay in Italy, the young student suffered a mild attack of smallpox. His recovery from the dreadful disease, giving him immunity from further seizure by it, proved to be one of the most important factors in his career.

Father MacIntyre returned to Prince Edward Island to become assistant-priest in the Cathedral parish just before the 1885 smallpox epidemic in Prince Edward Island which took 56 lives in the City of Charlottetown. Holding no fear for the disease which was spread through the City and afterwards through the Province by germ-tainted money left by visiting sailors, Father MacIntyre worked day and night helping the few overworked doctors who had care of the sick, and giving spiritual consolation to the dying.

On one occasion when the young priest was about to snatch a few moments of well-deserved rest he was told of a house full of crying children whose father was taken by the plague and whose mother lay near death in a make-shift hospital. Late night though it was, Father MacIntyre went to comfort them, and every day, until he saw that they were given proper care, he spent some time playing with them in their parentless home.

After four years in Charlottetown, Father MacIntyre was given charge of the parishes of Tracadie, Corran Ban and Covehead. Later he labored at East Point, Morell, Seven Mile Bay and Borden. Returning to Charlottetown in 1922 he became chaplain of St. Joseph's Convent.

Throughout the long years of his work in Prince Edward Island, the genial priest was known for his kindness, his sincere friendship for everyone regardless of class or creed, and his great love of children.

Paying tribute to Father MacIntyre, Lieutenant-Governor DeBlois once said:

"While some men may be so fortunate as to succeed in winning of the admiration and the affection of their immediate family and of their intimate friends, Father MacIntyre stands in a class by himself, because he has succeeded in winning the love and the admiration of the whole community, and especially is this true with regard to the little children. The reason is quite obvious when you consider that for 365 days of the year his one aim and desire has been to promote the spirit of good-will and of tolerance that, I am happy to say, characterizes the relations of the various religious bodies throughout this province and which, I hope, will be preserved and strengthened with the passing of the years." His Honor called the aged priest the "Children's Friend."

After meeting Father MacIntyre during a visit to Prince Edward Island in 1930, Hon. R. B. Bennett described him as "God's good old man."


The following tribute was paid Father MacIntyre by pupils of St. Joseph's Convent, where he was Chaplain:-

A solemn hush has fallen on our beloved school; our flag flying at half mast is a solemn testimony of the grief filling our young hearts today, for our dear Father MacIntyre is dead.

It is hard for us to realize that we shall never see that dear, familiar figure in our midst again, that those kind old eyes shall never more brighten at our greeting, that his venerable hand shall never again be lifted in benediction over our bowed heads.

Father MacIntyre's connection with St. Joseph's dates from 1883, when shortly after his ordination in Rome he began his priestly labors in this city. The annals of the house note with grateful appreciation his kindness to the then struggling school and his frequent visits to the classrooms. In the years that followed, when the voice of obedience called him to labor elsewhere, St. Joseph's continued to hold a warm place in his affections and when, in his declining years, he returned to Charlottetown, he gladly reassumed the duties of chaplain. During these last fifteen years, the children of St. Joseph's, as he loved to call us, were everything to him and he was everything to us. He brought us near to God, for, looking into his kind face, we saw reflected there Christ's tender love and solicitude for the little ones of his flock; he taught us to pray and to trust in the power of prayer both by his own reverence as he prayed with us, and by his oft expressed faith in the efficacy of our simple petitions; he inspired us to cherish the beautiful and the true by the example of his own noble, unselfish life, by his childish faith in God and his sweet charity to his fellow creatures of every class and creed.

And now he is gone, and today we can only gaze with reverent awe at that venerable face so beautiful in death, with its aureole of snow white hair. His memory however, shall ever remain with us as one of the dearest treasures of our childhood days. All the pupils who have passed through St. Joseph's Convent during these fifteen years, are mourning with us today, and uniting their fervent prayers with ours for the venerated spiritual father who brought a benediction upon their happy school days.

May Father Maclntyre continue to watch over his children from his happy home above, until we are all brought to be united with him in our heavenly Fathers eternal home! May he rest in peace.


The high place which he held in the hearts of our people was given tangible expression to on Christmas Eve 1931 when a number of citizens assembled at Government House and presented the beloved priest with a purse of gold accompanied by an address read by His Lordship Chief Justice Matheson. This address read as follows:

"These gentlemen you see around you are a few out of your multitude of friends who have enjoyed for varying years the benefit of your friendship and have observed with admiration your works and your wonderful gift of making all you meet happier, more hopeful and better. At this season we know your heart must go out to the poor and needy, and we wish to offer you the pleasure of giving more scope to your generous impulses. What we most wish to say is that we all love you and wish you many years to brighten the lives of all whom you meet."

This presentation was the first of the kind to take place at Government House after Lieutenant Governor Dalton and his family had occupied the historic mansion.


On Wednesday, Feb, 8th, 1933, the late Father MacIntyre celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the Holy Priesthood, on which occasion he was the recipient of hearty felicitations. During the afternoon of that day a reception was held at St. Joseph's Convent of which he was chaplain.

As the jubilarian, accompanied by His Excellency Bishop O'Sullivan, Right Reverend Monsignor Maurice McDonald, the priests of the Basilica staff, the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer Parish, St. Dunstan's University and visiting clergy entered the hall the "March Joyeuse" was rendered by pianos and violins.

A pleasing program was rendered and a Spiritual Bouquet presented the beloved chaplain by the pupils of the Convent, and an address and purse of gold from his fellow priests. The same evening a purse of gold and address was presented by the St. Joseph's Sodality.

The following morning the late Father MacIntyre celebrated mass at Notre Dame Academy, the academy choir rendering hymns during the service.

Receiving with the honor guest will be included the three assistant priests of St. Stephen's the Rev. George Ryan, the Rev. Joseph J. Musch and the Rev. Vincent J. Hope.

Father Cullen was ordained to the priesthood by the late Archbishop John Ireland November 8, 1901. He was born at Prince Edward Island, Canada, and studied at the Prince of Wales college and University of Ottawa before entering St. Paul seminary in 1898. Shortly after his ordination he was named pastor of the old Immaculate Conception church in 1902, remaining there for 19 years. It was during that period that the idea of the precathedral, now the Basilica of St. Mary, was conceived and carried out.

The first mass at the Basilica was celebrated by Father Cullen May 31, 1914, and the building was dedicated August 15, 1915. In September, 1921, Father Cullen terminated his pastorate at the Basilica to become president of the College of St. Thomas and served in that position for six years.

In October, 1927, he re-entered parish work, becoming pastor of the Church of St. Stephen.

- At The Charlottetown Hospital on November 28th, 1937, Alex Dalis MacDonald, aged 79 years. Funeral from his late residence, 202 Dorchester St., Tuesday morning at 8.45 to St. Dunstan's Basilica thence to R. C. Cemetery.

Alex Dalis MacDonald

In the death of Alex Dalis MacDonald who passed away in the City Hospital Sunday morning this city has lost an upright and honest citizen.

Born in Hermanville 78 years ago the late Mr. MacDonald operated a productive farm until twenty-seven years ago when, with his family, he moved to this city where by his genial manner and kindly disposition he soon made numerous friends.

He, however, still retained his interest in farming and each year saw him, in season, on his farm preparing for seeding and planting.

Possessed of a keen sense of humor he was always a welcome visitor at neighboring houses in town and country while his anecdotes of days long past were interesting, particularly to the younger generation.

He was a faithful member of St. Dunstan's Basilica congregation and a member or the Holy Name Society.

He leaves to mourn, a sorrowing widow, one daughter Elizabeth of Boston, who was with him when he passed away, and two sons Daniel and Peter of this city. Also surviving are a step son, Gus Power of Saint John, N. B., and a step daughter, Mrs. Margaret Murphy of this city, to all of whom the Patriot extends heartfelt sympathy.

The funeral was formerly arranged for St. Margaret's, but due to the rain the family were compelled to cancel those arrangements and have the burial here.

The funeral will be held tomorrow morning to St. Dunstan's Basilica thence to the Roman Catholic Cemetery.

- It is with a feeling of sincere sympathy and deep regret that citizens of Newport and surrounding districts received the news of the death of Mrs. Duncan P. Campbell.

Being in her usual good health and able to be about her household duties until a week previous to her death when she was suddenly stricken ill and despite the best medical care and nursing and kind care of her family and friends, her gentle spirit, fortified by the last rites of the Holy Catholic Church, calmly and peacefully on the evening of Sept. 7th, left its earthly tabernacle and returned to God who created it.

Deceased was 70 years of age, a daughter of the union of the late Lewis Campbell, Newport and Christena MacDonald, Orwell, P. E. Island.

Her presence in the home will be sadly missed not only by her family who are in her death experiencing one of the greatest sorrows, but also, by the whole community, in which she was highly esteemed and of which she had always been a resident and in tireless ambition, prudence, and a love for industry she strived for the temporal and spiritual welfare of her home and family.

To know her true character and pleasing personality, was to visit her home where her cheery smile and hearty welcome for both young and old and good advice which was always freely given will be a distinct loss to those who made her acquaintance.

Being always informed in the activities of the day, she was a pleasing conversationalist and endorsed all movements that tended to promote the betterment of the community and the welfare of the people.

Possessing a devout Catholic spirit she was keenly devoted to her religious duties and during her illness was frequently visited by her beloved pastor, Rev. Dr. C. J. MacDonald, who administered to her the last rites of the Holy Catholic Church.

A consoling and pleasing feature of her death and burial was the presence of her two sisters; Sister Mary James and Sister Joseph Agatha of the congregation of the Sisters of St. Martha, Charlottetown, who when hearing of her serious illness quickly hurried to her bedside and was with her during her last hours and in solemn prayer asked God to receive her soul.

A large concourse of sympathizing friends and neighbors on Sept. 9th joined in her funeral cortege to St. George's Church, St. George's where a Requiem High Mass was celebrated by Rev. Dr. C. J. McDonald who also conducted the services at the grave where under his final benediction all that was mortal of a kind and loving mother was laid to rest beside her husband who pre-deceased her eleven years ago.

There are left to mourn a sorrowing family, two sons; Lewis and Peter and one daughter Isabell, all at home; also one brother John J. Campbell, Newport; and three sisters: Mrs. Elizabeth Callahan, Miami, Florida, Mrs. Margaret McCormac, Dorchester, Mass. and Mrs. Minnie Drinkwater, Charlestown, Mass.

The numerous Mass Cards, letters and messages of sympathy received testify to the esteem in which the deceased was held.

The pallbearers were Messrs: John F. Steele, Jerome MacDonald, Patrick MacIntyre, Thomas Sloane, Duncan J. Campbell and Winnie A. McKinnon. Hearse driver John A. Campbell.

May her soul rest in peace.

- At The Charlottetown Hospital, Dec. 4, 1937, to Dr. and Mrs. J. S. Ledwell, city, a daughter.

- At Georgetown on December 5th, 1937, Wallace R. MacDonald age 50 years.

- A wedding of more than usual interest took place at St. Patrick's Church, Fort Augustus, on Tuesday, November 9th, when Miss Mary Veronica MacDonald of Glenfinnan was united in marriage to Mr. Charles MacLellan of Spring Valley. The ceremony was performed by the pastor, Rev. D. P. Croken assisted by Rev. W. V. Macdonald of Alberton. The bride, who was given in marriage by her brother was becomingly attired in a suit of powder blue with navy hat and accessories and wore a corsage bouquet of carnations. She was attended by Miss Genevieve Macdonald, while Mr. Ronald MacLellan was best man. Mrs. L. J. Macdonald played the wedding march and rendered a pleasing solo, while the choir was assisted by Mr. Borden Fraser. Immediately following the nuptial mass a dainty breakfast was served in the home of the bride to the clergy, immediate relatives and friends, following which Mr. and Mrs. MacLellan left on a short honeymoon trip through the Maritime Provinces. Previous to her marriage this popular bride was tendered showers by her friends in Boston, Mass., in Bath, Maine, and at her home in Glenfinnan, and upon return from her honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. MacLellan were the guests of their Spring Valley friends at a pleasingly arranged post-nuptial shower.

MACDONALD - TWO BROTHERS ARE DROWNED NEAR SOURIS - Tragedy Occurs As Brothers Look Helplessly On - Bernard And Charles MacDonald Of Chepstow Perish When Motor Boat Capsizes In Heavy Seas
- Bernard MacDonald, 27, and Charles MacDonald, 23, brothers, were drowned within sight of their home at Chepstow, three miles east of Souris Saturday afternoon when their motor boat capsized as they were attempting to land on a surf-swept beach. The accident took place 50 yards off shore. Two brothers Walter and Ronald MacDonald who had landed a few minutes previously and were preparing to assist their brothers were eye witnesses of the tragedy.

The bodies had not been recovered last night. Mounted Police directed dragging operations yesterday and a police cutter assisted.

The two victims of the accident had gone out on a 22-foot boat about 9 o'clock Saturday morning to fish cod off North Lake, 15 to 18 miles from their home at Chepstow.

Snow squalls began from the south-east at 11 o'clock and the wind increased in velocity and at noon Walter and Ronald MacDonald, two brothers, took a 28-foot boat and went to join their brothers. Both boats approached the shore about 4:30 in heavy seas and snow. The larger boat went in first, landed on the beach and the two occupants pulled it out of the surf with a capstan which fishermen in the section use for the purpose. The men in the smaller boat were given the signal to come ashore and began to turn towards the beach. Suddenly the watchers on shore saw a huge wave strike the boat and overturn it. As the capsized craft lifted on the crest of the next wave one man was seen clinging to the bottom but when the boat lifted again he was gone. The brothers on shore were unable to launch a dory in the heavy surf and stood helpless while the overturned boat drifted on. They seized it and dragged it out of the surf but both brothers had disappeared.

All night the shore was watched for the bodies and yesterday dragging operations were unsuccessful. They will begin again today if the sea is not too rough.

The deceased were sons of Mr. Allan J. MacDonald and the late Mrs. MacDonald of Chepstow. Charles was well known in boxing circles in the province. Last summer he took part in the Maritime amateur boxing championship tournament. His brother, Bernard, was under treatment in The Charlottetown Hospital for a considerable time last spring. Both men were unmarried.

Surviving besides their father are four brothers and three sisters, Walter, Francis, Ronald and Herbert MacDonald, all of Chepstow; Mrs. Arthur Dixon and Mrs. Harold Dixon of Fortune, and Bernetta MacDonald of Little Harbor.

The sympathy of the entire province will go to the family in their great bereavement at this season of the year.

MACDONALD - RECOVER BODY OF BERNARD MACDONALD - Dragging Operations At Chepstow Continue For Second Victim
- The body of Bernard MacDonald, 27, drowned within sight of his home at Chepstow Saturday afternoon when a motor boat capsized, was recovered from the sea about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Dragging operations Sunday and yesterday failed to locate the body of his brother, Charles MacDonald, 23, who lost his life also when the boat capsized 50 yards off shore as they attempted to land in heavy seas.

It was believed by those carrying on dragging operations that Charles' body had become entangled in fishing gear from the overturned boat and that the tide had carried him out into deeper water beyond where the body of his brother was found, 100 yards from the spot where he was drowned. Dragging will continue today if weather conditions permit.

Coroner A. Ross, M.D., Souris, last night announced that an inquest was not necessary.

The victims of the tragic accident were returning from fishing cod off North Lake, 18 miles east of their home. Two brothers, Walter and Ronald MacDonald, stood helpless off the shore as they saw their brother's 22-foot craft overturn. Heavy seas prevented them launching a dory to attempt a rescue. They had landed their boat a few minutes previously and were preparing to assist their brothers. One of the men from the overturned boat clung to its bottom for a few moments before dropping off into the swirling seas.
