Supposed Murder at Hamilton
We Learn from our Hamilton correspondent, that on Tueaday morning last, the body of a man, bearing numerous marks of violence, was found lying in the water in Burlington Bay, near the Suspension Bridge. The body was identified as that of a teamster, formerly in the employment of Nixson & Swales, wharfingers.
About two months since deceased was despatched with a load of goods to Wellington Square, and on his return, it appears he stopped for a short time at a tavern kept by a person named Skuce, immediately adjoining the Suspension Bridge; while there two men asked him if he would permit them to ride with him on his way home, which request was not granted, and an altercation ensued. Since that period no tidings have been received of him, his horses returning home without a driver. A quantity of money and a valuable watch remained on the body of the unfortunate man, a proof that he was not assaulted with intent to rob, but from malevolent feelings.—Globe, April 19th.

Gents - We take pleasure in writing to certify that the Machine we bought of you last summer gave entire satisfation. The Separator is far superior to any other kind we ever saw, and the Horse Power deserves our best recommendation, for had it not been well constructed and very strong you would likely have had it to pass for old iron before now, but though it get an extremely hard tril it is now nearly as good as new, and verly likely to stand for a number of years yet.

Daring Burglary
Midnight Deeds - Farmer's House in Westminster entered - inmates threatened with dead - $112 secured

Late on Saturday night or rather at an early hour on Sunday morning a most daring burlgary was committed at the residence of Mr. Skuse, 2nd con. of Westminster, just west of Oxford County. The only residents in the house were Mr. and Mrs. Skuse and a young girl. About 2am, the residents of the house were suddenly awakened by a series of sharp blows struck on some wooden substance. Mr. Skuse had barely time to ask his wife if she heard the noise, when three masked men, who had forced in one of the windows of the house, presented themselves at the bedside, each armed with a revolver. One of the rascals, in a husky and evidently disguised tone of voice, said, "Now, Mr.s Skuse, we want your money, and we won't do you any harm if you do not move." Thinking discretion the better part of valor, Mr. Skuse promised he would no, but in order to make sure of him, one of the robbers, revolver in hand, stodd sentry while the other couple went in search of wealth. The young girl heard the parley, but was too frightened to move. The scoundrels had therefore fill scope to exercise theri power. They ransacked the house, evidently to search of money only, and in this they were successful, arther they had brtoken open a drawer, from which they carried off over $112, nearly all in bills. They then left after threatening Mr. Skuse with instant death if he attempted to follow them. The alarm was not given, therefore, till late in the morning, and by that time, of course, the robbers had time to clear off with their booty. It is suspecte that they drove to and from the house, and that they came from a city direction. The residents in the neighborhoog have been greatly excited over this extraordinary outrage; and our informant says that every effort will be made to secure the arrest of the depredators.

A little girl about 8 years of age was taken to the police station about noon today by some persons who found her cyring on the street. Her name she gave as Jessie SKUSE and she came from England over a year ago with a number of immigrant children. She was taken up by William VANWART who lives near Hampstead (Queens Co.) and up to Thursday lived at his farm happy and contented. This morn., the little girl says, Mr. and Mrs. Vanwart, brought her to the city by the steamer and took her directly to the office of Samuel Gardner, the immigration agent and, putting her box inside the door, they left her there. Mr. Gardner told her to run after them and she did so, but she missed them and lost her way. Mr. Gardner, when asked about the mater, said that he was in his office when the door opened; the man and woman left the little girl and box of clothes inside the door and ran away. Mr. Gardner has now taken charge of the child and says he will have no problem getting her a home. She is a remarkedly bright child for her years.

Lewis Skuce saved two lives
Young man and lady were in Peril at Britannia-on-the-Bay

Boat got into rapids when Oar Lock Snapped in Twain

Lewis Skuce, a fifteen-year-old lad living at Britannia, performed an act last night that probably saved two lives. So say those who were at the Britannia clubhouse last evening.
Young man and lady rented a rowboat and heedless of warnings, comenced to row acreoss the head of the rapids. When in the middle of the river the man discovered that the danger was not imaginary and set himself to row with all his strength. But before he could pull the boat beyong the danger line an oar-lock broke. Immediately the craft began to drift towards the rapids. The girl screamed and the man shouted. One of the first to perceive their peril was Lewis Skuce and he, without hesitation, jumped into his canoe and paddled out to the drifting boat. By dexterous managedment he succeeded in transferring the two people into his own frail bark and conveyed them to shore. Hardly had they landed when the girl fainted. Both she and the gentleman accompanying her were strangers and would not give their names. Mr. Skuce was given an ovaction by the crowd at the clubhouse when he brought his passengers to shore. Messrs. Charlie Scott and Wilfrid Harrison rescued the deserted boat.

Skuce wanted money back

Dan Skuce was before Judge Davison today on a charge of drunkenness. Skuce had no excuse and was fined the five dollars which he put up last night for bail.
"Can't I have my five dollars?" Skuce asked the court as Captain Campbell was escorting him from the court room.
"No, sir," was the prompt answer of the court.
"Well then, won't you give me ten cents?" was Skuce's parting appeal as the door of the court room swung to behind him.
Rob Sancnez was also before the City Justice on a charge of drunkenness and he was invited to sojourn for five days as a guest of the city.

Woodroffe Resident Knocked down by Car

Frank Skuce now patient in Civic Hospital

Thrown to the pavement on the Richmond road, near Woodroffe, when struck by a motor car, Frank Skuce, popular resident of Woodroffe, was painfully injured about the head and body and is a patient at the Civic hospital. Dr. L.L. Derby, who is attending him, however, does not consider his condition serious. The auto by which he was knocked down was driven by Leonard Burrill, of Ottawa West.
Mr. Skuce was crossing the Richmond road, apparently to catch a street car, when the auto drove out of Roxborough avenue. He evidently became confused and stepped against the car. According to witnesses he was rolled along the pavement for a few feet and when the car was brought to a stop one of the rear wheels was just about to run onto his body.
He was picked up in a stunned condition and taken to the hospital where he was attended by Dr. Derby. The doctor said he does not think that there are any bones broken but that an X-ray examination has been made definitely to ascertain this. A report of the examination has been made definitely to ascertain this. A report of the examination, however, has not yet been made.

Injured Nurse's Recovery is considered remarkable
Hope was Abandoned for Miss Skuce, Severely hurt in Auto Accident.
Skull Was Broken

The remarkable recovery of Miss Mildred Skuce, 20 year old nurse of Toronto East General hospital, in that institution is considered an unusual and outstanding medical case in Toronto, if not in all Canada . Last November Miss Skuce was struck down by an automobile on the Lake Shore Rd., when she was attempting to board a street car. She sustained a serious fracture of the skull and a severely crushed left leg, and for ten weeks following the accident she was unconscious.
Little hope was held out for her, yet she survived the ordeal, and doctors while they waited, watched and hoped kept her alive by injecting glucose and saline in her veins.
The young nurse had been out to visit her brother, Dr. E.D. Skuce, a dentist, on the Lake Shore Rd. at Long Branch, when she was returning to Toronto and the accident occurred.
As one of her doctors told the Star to-day, nothing could be done for the injured girl on account of her injuries. "We were hampered by her mental condition," he said "She was in a state of unconsciousness bordering on a delirium making it impossible for us to give her an anesthetic."
Several times throughout the ten long weeks, she regained consciousness only to lapse back again after a short interval. The bone of her leg had been almost pulverized and could not be set in a plaster cast.
As the days passed, however, the fractured skull began to weave itself together. The bone in the leg also grew together. The patient could not take any food by mouth, so doctors fed her through her veins. A needle containing glucose and saline was injected into the skin, and thus the spark of life was kept alive.
About three weeks ago Miss Skuce recovered consciousness and shortly after she was able to take liquid foods. To-day she is still being watched, but her medical attendants are beginning to breathe more freely. She is recovering so rapidly.

Father of Thomas Skuce, of Ottawa, Was One of the Earliest Settlers of Mountain Township. Family All Gravitated to Ottawa. Skuce Brothers Were Wall Known Blacksmiths. A Large Piece of Plumabo.
It is just 81 years ago since the first settler located on the White's Ridge portion of Mountain twonship. That settler was Thomas Skuce, from Cork, Ireland , father of Mr. Thos W Skuce, owner of Elm apartment, 200 Friel street. White's Ridge was high land which the pine and oak had been stripped by a lumber operator named White.
White's Ridge lay about 3 miles west of the present village of Vernon. But of course at that time Vernon had not even been dreamed of. Vernon was then part of the forest. To reach his new home mr Skuce had to travel over the rough shanty roads that had been left by the lumbermen.
Soon after the Skuce family settled on the Ridge, there came the families of Robert McConnell, David Irvine, Esbyn Campbell and William Carlyle. Descendants of William Carlyle are still on the Ridge. Some of them are residents of Ottawa. Others live in Vernon. After a few years. Mr Skuce, the pioneer, moved from the Ridge to the sixth concession.
Came to Ottawa
Nearly all the sons of Mr Skuce found their way to Ottawa. James, John, William, George, Frank, Thomas and Dan all came to Ottawa to live. Five of the brother followed the occupation of blacksmithing. Thomas and Dan followed carriage painting.
Thomas Skuce came to Ottawa in 1873, at the age of 19. One of his first occupations was that of coachman for teh late E.B.Eddy. He stayed with Mr Eddy for four years. Then he went to work for W H Walker, the Ottawa layer, who had extensive plumbago interests
Wonderfully Rich
The Walker mines were wonderfully rich. Mr Skuce says that in 1876 Mr Walker sent to the Centennial Exhibition at Philadelphia a piece of pure plumbago which exceeded a hundred pounds in weight.
Mr Walker was a member of the legal firm of Walker, McIntyre and Ferguson of 34 Elgin street. A F McIntyre and Alex Ferguson were prominent in the legal profession.
Mr T W Skuce now leads the retired life. He is a great admirer of the Old Time Stuff. Mr Skuce was a painter here for over 40 years

Tragic Death of Child in Mountain Township in 1859
Little Annie Montgomery left Aunt's home to go to her own-Had to cross Swamp Path-was never seen again-Neighbors searched for two weeks-bit of her clothing found-story as told in verse by a cousin.
One of the stories which a visitor to Mountain township is sure to hear is that which related to the tragic fate of Annie Maria Montgomery, aged 10 years and 11 months, who lost her life in the great swamp in Mountain township in the year 1859. Some four or five years ago the Old Time Stuff carried a brief reference to this sad story. Today further details of the tragedy are provided by Mr T W Skuce, of 200 Friel street. When he was a boy Mr Skuce's home was in Mountain and his family lived only a few miles from that of the Montgomery family.
Mr Skuce was only five years old when little Annie Montgomery got lost in the swamp, but he remembers distinctly the excitment that prevailed at the time, and some of the incidents which occured during the two weeks which the search for the child lasted. His father, Thomas Skuce, was one of the hundreds who took part in the search.

Cantley Settlers carried Lighted Torches at Night

Cantley, on the east side of the Gatineau river, opposite Kirk's Ferry, has a history dating back nearly ninety years. Tough not an anthorirty on the pioneer days in that district, Mrs. Isabella Skuce, of 5 Irving avenue, is able to throw some interesting light on conditions there sixty and more years ago.
Mrs. Skuce was born in Cantley sixty-nine year ago- at a time when that district was still dotted with log cabins surrounded by blackened stumps in the midst of scanty clearings. The wives of the settlers were still using the old spinning wheels and making practically all the clothing for their families; wolves and wolverines were still stalking the land and keeping people awake at nights with their incessant howling, and, according to Mrs. Skuce, it was dangerous to venture out at night without a lighted torch to scare the wolves away - real pioneere conditions, and less then seventy years ago.

Was Landmark
Mrs. Skuce's father was the late James Davis, who for a time in the early seventies kept store and post office in the village, and in later years kept a store in New Edinburgh, on Creighton street near the corner of Sussex. His father, the late William Davis, came to these parts from Wales in the early part of the nineteenth century and sometime in the forties settled on the outskirts of what is now the village of Cantley. The log shanty erected by this pioneer settler stood as a landmark until the year 1892, when it was destroyed by fire.
Mrs. Skuce recalls that among the early settlers within a mile on each side of the village were: John Milks (who came from Eardley), Lemuel Allen, Fred Davis, John Brown, Donald Gow, Robert Brown, Isaac Smith, James Shields, John Fleming (family all gone), James Hogan, James Patterson, David Blackburn, David Thompson, Tony Holmes, George Prudhomme, grandfather of Rev. Father Geo D. Prudhomme of Ottawa, and others. There are traditions also of a Mr. Cantley, a far back settler after whom the village was named, though very little is known about him or his descendants. In any event there are no Cantleys in the district now, nor were there any in Mrs. Skuce's girlhood days.
At the time Mrs. Skuce was born there was one store in the village of Cantley. It was kept by George Brown, father of Mr. Christie Brown of Ottawa. Later another store was kept by Alexander Prudhomme, who was also the first postmaster of the village.

Had Sawmill
For many years Cantley boasted a sawmill. It was located on Blackburn creek, and was run by John Blackburn, son of Andrew, the pioneeer, Andrew Blackburn was also the father of the late Robert Blackburn of New Edinburgh, and of the late Andrew Blackburn, farmer of Kirk's Perry.

Charge Dismissed
On October 27th an automobile driven by Thomas Skuce of Osgoode entering Carling avenue from Sherwood Driver, was in collision with an automobile driven west on Carling avenue by Ald. David McMillan. The alderman's car was turned over and suffered damage to the extent of $250. The Skuce car also was damaged considerably. Alderman McMillan was shaken up but was not seriously injured. Mr and Mrs Skuce said their car was brought to a stop before entering Carling avenue and at that time the McMillan car was some distance away. Ald. McMillan and a woman who was driving east on Carling said the Skuce car was not stopped before entering the Carling avenue but that neither car was going at a fast rate of speed.
Skuce was charged with driving in a manner dangerous to the public. Magistrate Strike said that there was nothing to suggest that the witnesses on either side were telling anything but what they thought was the truth. Before making a conviction he said he must be satisfied beyond resonable doubt and he could not say he was. He dismissed the charge remarking that the onus doubtless would have to be placed by a civil court action.

Frank Allan Skuce Dies Suddenly At Britannia Camp
Frank Allan Skuce, auditor in the Income Tax Division of the Department of National Revenue, well-known sportsman, ex-Commodore, and life member of the Britannia Boating Club, died suddenly on Saturday night about 11 o'clock at his Summer camp near the clubhouse. He was 60 years old.
Mr Skuce had been ailing for some time, but his death was quite unexpected. The news of it came as a particular shock to the members of the sailing crews who left on Saturday afternoon for the annual race from Britannia Bay to Quyon, and back, and only learned of the loss of their club colleague on their return on Sunday. Mr Skuce was commodore of the club for five years; He retired last Fall on account of failing health.

He was formerly a member of the Glebe Curling Club, enjoyed a game of golf, and in his day was an oarsman and swimmer.
Born in Kerry County, Ireland, Mr Skuce was a son of the late Mr and Mrs Frank Skuce. He came to Canada in 1913 with his wife and family to settle, having previously visited the Dominion. They lived in Montreal where he enlisted with the 60th Battalion of the C.E.F. on the outbreak of the Great War. He served through out the war with his battalion and with the machine gun school. On his return to Canada he joined the staff of the Income Tax Division 1 where he had served until his death. He was an Anglican in religion.
Surviving him are his widow, of 208 Branson avenue, formerly Miss Nora A Mackesy, whom he married in Ireland; four daughters, Mrs E A Oakes, 18 Grove avenue; Mrs. James Mercer, Cooper street; Misses Marjorie and Esther, at home; two sons, Frank, of Syracuse, NY, and Charles, at home; two brothers, William and Charles, and two sisters, Mrs Godsell, and Miss May Skuce, all of Cork, Ireland, and four grandchildren.

Quits Alaska just once finds future bride here
Courtship of Charles Skuse and Isabel Duncan spans 3,500 Miles - Japan Looks like closest Enemy in North

Islington, July 4 - The old adage about love conquering distance has a living exponent in Charles Skuse of Juneau Alaska. On Saturday, Mr. Skuse will marry Miss Isabel Duncan of Bloor St., Islington after a courtship that bridged a gap of 3,500 miles.
Charles is the second in the Skuse family to come all the way to Ontario for a bride. He came here in May of last year with his brother, who was marrying an Ontario girl, a friend of Miss Duncan. Mr Skuse returned to Alaska but he knew he had found the girl he wanted.
"I never throught I'd run into anything so important as meeting my future wife on that trip," he said. "It was the first time I had been out of Alaska and I just wanted a good time."
The future Mrs. Skuse is not in the least perturbed about going to far-off territory. For one thing she will see her girld friend, married to Mr Skuse's brother, and she has met other Juneau people who have visited here.
A new truck will carry the couple back to their Alaska home. Mr Skuse bought Alaska license plates before he left home.
There is a trong pro-British feeling in the section of Alaska near Juneau, he said. "The feeling seems to be that the US should get in the war on the side of the Allies," said the visitor.
"No, we don't fear invasion form the Russians," he added. "The people are more worried about trouble with Japan . In a war between the US and that country, we would be right in the line of invasion."

Even chance given Farmer Wounded at Pistol Match

Same Bullet Hits Windsor Policeman in Strange North York Accident
Empy Shell Cause

Nine blood transfusions have been given in a dramatic fight for the life of John F Turnbull, 47, Orillia farmer. With a .45 calibre revolver bullet through the body, he is one of two men seriously wounded in one of the strangest accidents ever to occur in an international revolver competition. The other is Constable James McLaughlan, 33, of Windsor, less dangerously wounded when the same bullet passed through his side. They were shooting in a match sponsored by the Forest Hill Police and Firemen's association at Maryvale farm Saturday.
The bullet was from the service revolver of Corp. W W Skuce, crack shot of the RCMP, headquarters staff, Ottawa, and member of this year's Dominion revolver championship team. Skuce, who was firing from No. 13 position, was struck on the neck by a hot
<Picture - PC James McLaughlan>
cartidge case ejected from the .38 calibre automatic pistol fired on his left by Turnbull.
Instinctively Corp Skuce swing in the direction from which he had been struck.
"I thought I had been shot in the neck — that it was a bullet that struck me," he said " I grabbed for my neck and staggered back out of line" His pistol discharged, and a bullet from the weapon, which he had already levelled for shooting at the target, passed through Constable McLaughlan's side, grazing a rib, and entered Turnbull's abdomen.

Thinks Gun Fell
Whether reflect action from the hot sting on his neck caused the marksman, with nerves already tense, to pull the trigger, or wheather the gun dropped from his hand and exploded on striking the ground, is not certain.
"I have no recollection of discharging it," sad Corpiral Skuce, "I am under the impression it exploded when falling. When I felt the sharp, hot blow on the side of my neck I thought it was a bullet and that I had been shot. I grabbed for my neck and staggered back out of line. The next thing I realized my revolver was on the ground and the two boys at my left were at my feet, wounded. Anyone who received a very sharp, hot blow on the neck like that would have done the same thing—grab for his neck."
The accident occurred in the first match of the meet, and the contestants had fired one shot. Turnbull was not firing in the same competition as McLaughlin and Skuce. He was shooting at what is known as a re-entry target, but was standing in the No. 11 position in the same line of competitors.
Turnbull is given a 50-50 chance of recovery by surgeons at Toronto East General hospital. Yesterday he was so weak that repeated blood transusions had to be given. By radio, telephone and teletype police officers in Tornoto and suburbs were asked to respond with blood donations. Volunteers beseiged the hosptial. Two of the transfusions were given by his sons, James and Norman.
Dr Leslie Black is credited with saving Turnbull's life. His treatment, given at the spot, kept a faint pulse beating until he could be rushed to hosptial, where the slug was removed. Mrs Turnbull and sons raced by car from Orillia, and remained with his for the night.

"Purely Accidental"
H. S. McCready, deputy commissioner of provincial police, said 15 marksmen were lined up on the range when the accident happened. Turnbull, in No 11, fired at the target with his automatic. The ejected empty flew over McLaughlin's head to strike Corp Skuce in the neck. "The whole thing was purely accidental" said McCready.
Dr. Black, one of the competitors, gave prompt medical treatment to both men, and officers were sent to call ambulances. The remoteness of the locality in North York delayed arrival of the amublance, and Turnbull was taken to Toronto East General hospital, and McLaughlin to Toronto General hospital in private cars.
Inspector Hammond of the Ontario provincial police, conducted the investigation, assisted by Acting Chief John Harrison of North York.
"I have been shooting since I was 10 years old, and have been in the RCMP Headquarters Revolver club nine years, and never before had an accident," said Corp Skuce, "It was very, very unfortunate thing. I was still carrying the red mark on my neck Saturday night. There were members of several police forces there, and they agreed the wounding of these boys was purely accidental."

In touch with Doctor
"I am deeply affected about the whole thing, but my only concern is that Turnbull recover," Corp Skuce said. "I left with the doctor the name of a friend of mine so I would know how everything was going," Skuce said. Skuce said it was only after the accident he found out the hot shell came from an automatic. Two RCMP teams of three men each competed in Saturday's contest.
"We were shooting at 20 yeras in one of the main matches," said McLaughlan, from his hospital bed, "I had just fired the first round of the relay when suddenly I felt a wave of pain. It was just as if a bomb had exploded and caught me in the middle. I didn't lose consciousness, but I fell, and they brought me to the hospital. That's all I remember"
"The manner in which the accident occurred is the only way anyone could be hurt at such a well-organized meet," said Flying Officer C J Colling, one of the contestants and an expert shot, "The layout of the range is ideal and range discipline was excellent. An accident such as this could have happened even at Bisley." His statement was echoed by Flight-Lt T Cresswell, also a contestant.
"It is the first time dad was ever in a shooting accident," said Norman Turnbull, 16-year-old son of the injured man. "He has won many trophies with his marksmanship."
Among them is a plaque Mr Turnbull won at a Dominion marksmen's shooting meet, and another won at the Midland Rifle association meet.

When an ejected shell struck his neck, Corporal W.W. Skuce, crack shot of the RCMP, accidentally discharged his revolver.

Lumber to build his first barn was floated down the Red River from Red Deer and was retrieved from the water at the ferry which was discarded on the erection of the Stauffer bridge which spand the river on the Calgary-Saskatoon highway.
The deceased prioneer was prominent in the Oldtimer's Association here and an authority on the growth of the Goose Lake line area. For the past few years he had operated a service station here.

First Businessman
Sid Skuce enjoyed the distinction of being first businessman in Drumheller, camping at the Red Deer river in the Fall of 1910 and starting in the livery business in tents. Shortly afterward he added temporary premises constructed of half tent and half tumber, in which he conducted a small restaurant business. However, this was not Mr. Skuce's first appearance in this district.
He came west in 1896, locating for one year in Manitoba, and then went to California, where for seven years he was engaged in fruit ranching in Imperial Valley, and then for one year worked at hog ranching. Having been in touch with Jim Beattie, another pioneer of this district, Sid Skuce decided to strike out for Drumheller (before it was Drumheller). He was met at Gleichen by Mr. Beattie and the two drove across the prairie and arrived here in firve days. This was in the early parrt of 1905 and Messrs. Skuce and Beattie entered a ranch partnership.
When the C.P.R. opened the land for sale, Mr. Skuce built a log shack and barn in 1909 at Newcastle, and Beattie and the two drove across the following year commenced contracting, breaking land for the farmers in the Strathmore discrict. In the fall of 1910, he camped near the river here and started his livery and restaurant business.

Barry's Bay, Jan 1 (Special). Warned that their home was on fire by an electric light fixture dropping from the ceiling while they were having New Year's Day dinner, Lloyd Skuce and his family escaped with only the clothes that they were wearing and $10,000 damage was caused in the fire which destryoed the large double frame house. Mr Skuce and his family occupied one side of the house and Wesley Blaney and his family, the other half. The Blaney's suffereed about $2,000 dame when they lost most of thier belongings. They managed to have some of the furniture downstairs, but it was damaged by snow and water and their loss is only partially covered by insurance. Although the double house was partially insured by Mr Skuce, he said insurance would not be enough to build the shell ofht home which had recently been redocreated and fully furnished. The fire was believed to have started in the attic from the chimney but was not discovered until approximately 1.45pm when the light fixture fell in the dining room. For some time the home, grocery store and restaurant owned by Frank Yanthas and valued at $15,000 was in danger, but the resilient work of volunteer fire fighter who used snow and water and wet blankets on the windows, saved the building. Some damage is believed to have been done by water to the floors and furniture.

Board Opposes Oral French for Trafalgar
Trafalgar, Jan 14 — The Trafalgar Township Public School Board tonight announced it has decided against introducing oral French in the school system.
The board's action followed a report by its superintendent, Lorne Skuce, that opposed the French course. The board's action was taken in the face of strong support from township parents' organizations for oral French.
Mr Skuce's objection was based on the difficulty in obtaining qualififed teachers. His report stated it would be impossible to introduce the course ithout disrupting the present curriculum established by the Department of Eductation. Mr Skuce said the department has not evolved a program that would permit French to be substituted for an existing subject.

Skuce Family Remembered in Carling/Poulin Housing
Dear Editor:
Please extend my gratitude and thanks to the citizens of Britannia for retaining the name "Skuce" Street. During Charlotte Whitton's first term as Mayer, she has the street named "Skuce".
As one of her committee working with Alderman Frank Boyce, and due to the very large majority vote from the West End polls, she was elected Mayor. Much kidding was received because of a woman becoming Mayor!
My grateful thanks to Mayor Marion Dewar who so thoughtfully passed my letter on to Alderman Marlene Catterall. My sincere thanks to her and many old friends like Eva Taylor. Is it gratifying to know that the next street was named after her.
James Skuce built his home and blacksmith shop there in 1905. The property was expropriated in 1959 by the City. The late Orval Skuce started a boys' club in Britannia, which later became Cubs and Scouts. He spent 35 years training boys, many of whom are still Britannia residents and who well remember him as their leader. He was very active in all community work in the area. The Skuce family were well known for their active part in the Britannia Canoe Club, winning many trophies.
A complete history of the Skuce family, with pictures, has been placed in the National Archives.
Most sincerely,
Bessie G. Skuce.

Nelson Skuce

Back in the 1970s, the Citizen dropped the reference to Ottawa in its masthead at the top of the front page. The idea was to appeal to suburban readers. A decade or so later, Nelson Skuce, the paper's director of design, managed to have it put back.
His argument was something like this: Ottawa is the name of the nation's capital city; the Citizen is the newspaper in the capital. So, say so.
Such reasoning reflected Skuce's deep sense of connection to the city of his birth. That connection was severed Tuesday with Skuce's death from leukemia. He was 56.
"He understood the connection between a newspaper and its town better than any newspaper executive I've ever known, said Gordon Fisher, the paper's general manager.
Skuce was born in Ottawa in 1937. He was a star athlete in high school, and briefly played professional baseball. But he returned home to launch a 36-year journalism career with the Ottawa Journal in 1957. He spent 10 years there as a reporter and assistant city editor.
After a short stint in public relations at the University of Ottawa, he joined the Citizen in 1968 as a desk editor. By 1976 he was managing editor.
He became director of design in 1987, winning several awards for the paper over the next few years.
Skuce is survived by his wife Marsha, children Michael, 13, and Mark, 16, and adult children Tim, Peter, and Jennifer. The funeral will be held Thursday.

Gone, but not to be forgotten

They belong at the rink, the ballpark, the stadium. But lately the sad truth is, if you're looking for a member of the local sports community, try Hulse and Playfair. It's standing room only at the funeral parlor.
In the past week, the sports village of the nation's capital lost two giants. Gord Hamilton and Bill Cowley.
Gordie was the heart and soul of the Ottawa-Nepean Canadians Sports Club, but so much more. Cowley, an NHL Hall of Famer, was the finest playmaker of his era, a two-time Hart Trophy winner as the NHL's most valuable player, and an original partner of the Ottawa 67's.
You're supposed to say nice things about people who pass away, but it was never so easy as with Gord Hamilton and Bill Cowley. Just tell the truth.
The sports community and, especially, the Hamilton family are pleased to see the end of 1993, a year that took brothers Bruce and Gord, their mother, Ethel and their first cousin, Nelson Skuce, who worked at this newspaper but breathed baseball.
Gordie Ham, 49, died one day after Christmas. Cowley, 81, the former Boston Bruin great, died on New Year's Eve and was buried Tuesday.
"I'm just a big baby, I guess, but when I went to Bill's wake, there were tears in my eyes, said Lally Lalonde, a local sports icon in his own right. Lalonde played for a senior city league team coached by Cowley in the '40s.
"I feel a great loss. He was as nice a man as I've ever met in my life, the most memorable person I've ever met in sport. Being a star NHLer never went to his head. He was Bill Cowley, your friend.
They had this in common, Cowley and Hamilton, a low profile for their kind works. Cowley used to be kidded for clinging to the first dollar he ever earned, but friends in need knew another side to the man.
We've had a week to spin Gordie Ham's good deeds and a week is not enough. A boy needed a ball glove, a pair of skates, Gordie found the way. As often as not, the pocket he reached for was his own. But financial support for athletes in need was just part of the Hamilton story.
Gordie was about people. A certain single mother couldn't afford figure skating lessons for her son. The sports club paid for the lessons. Gordie would take the kid out for lunch, listen to his problems. He was coach, mentor, father figure.
Long before the 1988 Olympic silver medal was a twinkle in Liz Manley's eyes, Manley didn't have the means to get to the rink for practice. Gordie, that closet figure skating fan, arranged a rental car.
`It hasn't sunk in yet'
"I still don't feel like Gordie's gone, said Shawn O'Connor, a pitcher for the Ottawa-Nepean Canadians senior baseball team and one of many under Hamilton's wing. "It hasn't sunk in yet. It's hard to put into words what he meant. He was always there for you. The ball season is going to be awful. It won't seem like a home game without big Gordie watching from the press box and then going back to the club and hearing him analyse our performance.
It was Gordie who recruited 10,000 names, at a buck each, on a telegram that landed in Howard Darwin's lap 10 minutes before Ottawa's presentation to the International League expansion committee.
It was Gordie who dreamed up the idea of $5 deposits as a show of faith, with the promise of the first three games free; and it was Gordie who scrambled to scare up tickets for all who responded.
"Gordie's biggest fault, said Darwin, "was that he didn't know how to say no. And later he'd say, `It seemed like a good idea at the time.'
He was a big man, Gord Hamilton and, as Brian Kilrea said, the biggest part of Gordie was his heart. You don't replace people like Gord and Bruce Hamilton, Nelson Skuce or Bill Cowley. Neither do you forget them.

Iona Skuce, 68, remembers a living Christmas gift that got turned away. Her father, William Christopher Skuce, was a sharpshooter with the Princess Louise Guards. He won the silver cup for 20 years at the Connaught Rifle Range.
One year he brought home a live Christmas goose, on a leash.
"It walked in the front door and down the hall into the ktichen of our home," says Skuce. "It was saying honk honk' all the way, in a very friendly fashion.
"We had to give it away because nobody wanted to eat that nice goose for Christmas dinner at our home."
The story has an interesting post-script, says Skuce.
Lou Skuce, her father's cousin, was a cartoonist for the Toronto Sun and he adopted the goose as his pen-name, signing all his cartoons with "Skuce's Goose."
He drew a mural of the goose at the Toronto Press Club.

John Maynard Skuce: Veteran showed generous spirit

(photo)

In 1917, at the age of 17, John Maynard Skuce tried to join the army. When officials found out he was under age, they kicked him out, only to have him re-enlist a half year later. The First World War ended before he could get overseas.
Mr. Skuce joined the army again in 1939 and this time served overseas in the medical corps, making him a veteran of two major wars.
Mr. Skuce died March 30 in his sleep at the age of 97 at the Perley and Rideau Veterans Residence.
Mr. Skuce was born in Ottawa in 1900. Before he joined the army, he worked with this father at their blacksmith shop on Irving Avenue. He and his father shod horses and repaired wagons.
At the end of the first war, he travelled to Detroit to work at the Ford Motor plant. But he left his sweetheart, Phyllis Hawley, in Ottawa. He asked her to join him in Detroit but she refused. She was too attached to the city and didn't want to leave her mother.
Mr. Skuce returned to Ottawa with a brand new Ford truck, a wedding gift from the company, and the marriage took place in 1926. They had one son, Calvin Skuce, who still lives in Ottawa.
After returning from the States, Mr. Skuce ran his own business. He owned two garages in Ottawa, one on Florence Street and the other on Kent . His son says he loved to repair old cars.
``You wouldn't know how many old cars we had around,'' said Calvin Skuce. His father would fix them up and the family would use them until ``something new came along.''
Times were tough and often Mr. Skuce's customers couldn't pay. When it came time to settle their bills, he'd ask them how much they thought the work was worth. Penny Skuce, Calvin's wife, says that's why he was never a rich man; he was always owed more than he was ever paid. Calvin Skuce remembers his father coming home sometimes with only a few dollars in his pocket.
In his later years, Mr. Skuce worked at Canadian Tire, keeping up his interest in cars.
In the late 1970s, Mr. Skuce sang with a group called the Keynotes at the Montgomery Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. There were about 10 people in the group and Mr. Skuce loved to be on stage, sing and tell jokes.
He entered the veterans residence in 1989. Carol Waldron, the nursing unit manager on Mr. Skuce's floor, says she remembers him as a quiet man who always had a smile on his face.
While he became frail in his old age, he still enjoyed going out in his wheelchair. He especially enjoyed visits from Princess, his son's toy poodle.
A funeral service will be held at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod St., today at 2 p.m.

Doris Kathryn Damant

On Sunday, November 5, 2000, Doris Kathryn Damant (Skuce) passed away peacefully at the age of 80 years. Doris was born in Stoughton on June 18, 1920. Doris was the second youngest of nine children raised by Janet and Richard (R.D.) Skuce on their homestead south of Stoughton. A bit of a tomboy at heart, Doris loved to ride her horse Patches and play ball in her youth. She played the violin made by her brother John. She completed grade 12 in Stoughton and then moved to Regina to pursue a business diploma at Reliance. On February 20, 1943 she married William (Bill) Temple Damant in Yorkton. Doris worked in Regina for Imperial Life before marrying Bill and moving to Moose Jaw. In the 1960's Doris did books for the Capital Theatre; following this she assisted Bill in their business, The Modern Dental Lab. She had a sport for both seasons; golf in the summer and bowling in the winter. She loved to entertain both young and old in their home at 884 Monk. The barbecue knew no seasons: it could turnout a turkey for Thanksgiving or a mid winter steak. The celebration of family milestones was very important to Doris. She and Bill were the momentum behind a wonderful 25th anniversary celebration for daughter Judi and son-in-law Don. Doris and Bill celebrated their 45th and 50th anniversaries in the company of many family and friends. She loved life and the people she shared special times with. She tackled personal challenges such as her fight with Tuberculosis and Huntington's with a determined spirit. Until the last two days of her life her blue eyes twinkled and her smile greeted those who visited. Doris was predeceased by her parents Richard and Janet Skuce; her husband Bill Damant; one sister Bernice; five brothers: Lyle, Bill, Allan, Elmer and John, one sister-in-law Lorraine; four brothers-in-law: Everett, Maurice, Alex and Harold.

Skuce, Thusnela Louise (nee Klotz) March 17, 1908 - April 27, 2002
Nel liked to say that she was a lucky person; lucky because many small things gave her much pleasure through the day: the scent of hyacinth, a note from a friend, music she loved. These, in turn, sparked fond memories of all those she loved and laughed with. A romantic through and through, she sang to Bizet and dreamed by Clair de Lune. Yes, she would say, of herself: ".a grasshopper, not an ant". She enjoyed a good G&T or two before dinner. She loved to party with Dick (Richard Augustus Skuce), the man she met, loved and married. So many good years they had, so many fine evenings with friends through almost seventy years together. Nel was always open to emotion and tenderness in others. Wonder and curiosity were constant companions for her. Her instincts for honesty of feeling and the beauty of the simple and the heartfelt remain, her true gifts to us all. Her sons, Murray (Suzanne) and Doug (Ingrid) and grandchildren, Mitchell and Kirsten, will remember and shall pass on her love. Marguerite Boucher, Dick's sister, shall be thinking of her, as would her dear friend and sister-in-law, Claire (Peggy) Klotz, were she still with us. Family and friends will gather to remember Nelda at Pinecrest Cemetery, Ottawa, May 18th at 2 p.m. and go on to Doug's (ph. ). Please join us. No flowers, please.

MEYER, Dr. Ingrid ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA.
Ingrid left us peacefully on Sunday March 16 at the Maycourt Hospice after a long battle with metastatic breast cancer. Her family was by her side. Ingrids family was her centre. The three most beautiful days of her life were her wedding day to Douglas Skuce in 1986, and the births of her most beloved children, Mitchell (1989) and Kirsten (1990). Ingrid was the cherished daughter of Erich and Priska Meyer of Hamilton, Ontario, originally from Austria , who instilled in her a love of family and of knowledge, and a strong work ethic. Sister of Peter (Wendy), aunt of Kevin and Steven, great-niece of Gabriele Tatschl (Bernhard) in Austria, sister-in-law of Murray (Susanne Pookay), and pre-deceased by parents-in-law Richard and Nelda Skuce. Ingrid grew up in Hamilton, receiving a B.A. in French and German from McMaster University (1979). She subsequently earned an M.A. in Translation (1982) and Ph.D. in Linguistics (1987) from the Universit de Montral. Ingrid joined the School of Translation and interpretation, University of Ottawa, as a professor in 1983, and until her later illness was an enthusiastic teacher of many hundreds of students there. Aside from her love of family and academics, Ingrid found deep satisfaction in volunteering with Reach to Recovery, and paddling on Breast Cancer Actions Busting Out dragon boating team. The family extends their deepest thanks to the medical professionals at the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre, particularly Dr. Stan Gertler, the nurses in CTU, and the staff in the bloodwork lab.

Profile of Iona Skuce.
Canada 's first female prime minister pre-dated Kim Campbell by several decades.
She wasn't elected (just like Ms. Campbell) and her tenure was only a day long (slightly shorter than Ms. Campbell's), but Iona Skuce made history.
OK, she wasn't actually prime minister of the whole country. But, in 1950, she was the first woman to serve as prime minister of the model parliament at Carleton College, forerunner of Carleton University.
Almost half a century later, Ms. Skuce, who still lives in Ottawa, clearly remembers the reaction of her fellow students: "What do you want to do that for?"
At the time, she thought she wanted to pursue politics as a career. Instead, she joined the federal public service. Moving up the ranks was a challenge, she recalls. Despite doing well on written tests, she was denied jobs. When she asked about why she was rated "not personally suitable" after the oral exams, she discovered the phrase was code for "because you're a woman."
She did go on to serve as a trade and commerce officer, specializing in trade negotiations, export marketing, trade policy and international economic relations. Before retiring almost 15 years ago, Ms. Skuce headed many Canadian delegations to international conferences on economic and development issues.

DANIEL JAMES SKUCE

A bright light that touched the lives of so many people around the world has faded. The presence of Dan in all of our lives was both a gift and miracle. Dan's parents, Bessie and Or val, were in their mid-40s when Dan made his entrance on October 26th, 1939. From his birthplace in Ottawa to his passing in Victoria, Dan's journey became what he affectionately called 'The Ride.' During the 40s and 50s, Dan's ride was spent in his neighbourhood of Nepean, playing sports and being doted upon by his much older brothers Eldon and Lloyd. He also shared an admiration for his sister Margaret ( Johnston) - his only surviving family member. The nomad in Dan surfaced in the 60s and 70s when he helped start an organization called 'Up With People' and began traveling the world staging shows of peace during times of war. Dan detested violence and war in any form. Dan left UWP in 1976 to reside in Toronto and start the evolution of what he believed was his most meaningful contribution during his life. Dan and his wife Carla, were blessed with three children, Traci (Jim), Nikki (Facundo) and Ryan (Mili). The incredible love and support Dan provided his children gifted them with the confidence and stability to continue his legacy of love in their own careers and relationships. Dan's family rooted him into the corporate world with contributions in the area of marketing with both Mary Kay and Electrolux. In the mid-80s, during his time as VP of Meetings & Events for Carlson Marketing Group, he met his soul mate and final life partner, Hedy. Their good fortune to be able to work together for the past 20 years took them across the globe, adding to their treasured collection of incredible friends and spectacular memories. During this time, his love of golf peaked and Dan fulfilled the dream of playing on the Old Course at St. Andrews. The culmination of Dan's ride was the pride he enjoyed as a grandfather to his grandsons, Seamus and Emile. Priority of family and love for his children and grandchildren is what brought him out to the West Coast to settle in Victoria during these past five years. The legend of Dan Skuce will live on in all that have played a part in his life. It was Dan's ability to live his life for the moment and his enviable love and enjoyment of life that he will best be remembered for. He sought only the great good and potential in everyone he met and every situation he encountered. Even with his diagnosis of terminal melanoma in January 2004, he never gave into the disease. A number of tributes had been planned for Dan during the month of October that unfortunately did not take place as he prepared for his final exit on Friday, October 21st, 2005. In lieu of a memorial ser vice, Dan would want everyone to celebrate him in their own way. In lieu of flowers, Dan's children have asked for donations to be made to One Sky (www.onesky.ca); the Red Cross through donation of blood; the Victoria Hospice; the BC Cancer Agency or the charity of your choice. Danny Boy...the pipes are calling. The summer 's gone. `Tis you must go and I must bide. I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me. Daniel James Skuce...you are loved more than ever and you will be missed dearly. Thank you for sharing the great blessing of your life with us.

One of the last few original members of the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Auxiliary created in 1948, she served twice as its president, and in 1988, was made an Ontario Life Member by the Hospital Auxiliaries Association of Ontario.

The funeral was held in the chapel of the Daley Family Funeral Home in Metcalfe on Mon., June 10 followed by interment at Reid’s Mills Cemetery. The pallbearers were Walter Hoy, Lyle Skuce, Erwin Skuce, Edson Skuce, Arnold Declare, and Bernard Dertinger.
The family would like to thank the Winchester District Memorial Hospital for the kindness and care these last few years, as well as the St. Jacques Nursing Home. A special thanks to the many who came to visit Mother over these many years – many have commented that her warm smile and kindness will long be remembered.

He is also survived by nieces and nephews: David and Valerie Chater, Christopher and Lucha Chater, Tim and Jennine Chater, Michael and Helma Chater, Anne and Ken Mathie, Kathie Mikkelsen, Bill Baker and Barb and Tony Klmychuk.
