When notified that he had been awarded the bronze medal Costich revealed that he had married the girl whom he saved from drowning three months ago. The drowning fatality in which Miss Marian B. Bauman, sister of Miss Bauman, and John L .Burns, 23, both of Rochester lost their lives in the St. Lawrence River will be recalled by many here.

Hunter Mistaken For Duck

Duck hunting has its perils, too, as Mr. A. J. Wood recently discovered. It may not be as dangerous as being mistaken for a deer or a moose but a hail of “B-B’s” doesn’t make one feel any too comfortable. Last week Mr. Wood was out in his canoe when a duck, flying low over water passed between him and a man in another canoe not far distant. The second man raised his gun and fired. The dick flew on but many of the lead pellets from the gun passed close to Mr. Wood and a few struck him. By that time they didn’t have force enough to do serious harm, but one passed through his right ear and another through his upper lip knocking out a tooth.

Monogrammed Bags

Monograms are smart as can be on new bags. The chic thing is to have tiny initials, simple as can be but squarish or oval in design, on the handle or strap or fastening, either in silver or gold. One black crepe de chine Chinese bag has yellow and green initials.

She Awakens During “Wake”

During a “wake” over the “corpse” of an aged woman at Mullahoran, Irish Free State, recently, she suddenly sat up in bed. Many mourners fled in terror. The women had been ill for a long time, and apparently died in the usual way. Neighbors and friends from all the mountainous district gathered for the “wake”.

Editorial Notes

Oshawa’s Little Theatre is deserving of far more support than it is actually being given. It amazing how slow people are to support a worthwhile movement in their own community.

Boy Had Narrow Escape

While playing on the street in Warkworth, Harold Clayton, four-year-old son of Henry Clayton, of Belleville, narrowly escaped serious injury when he became confused and dashed directly in front of an auto driven by Ben Ewing of Oshawa, formally town clerk of Cobourg. The car knocked the boy down and passed completely over him but fortunately the wheels missed the lad’s body. A few bruises and soiled clothing were the extent of the injuries.
