Fairies President. 7B31-I9 OTTAWA (CP) Dear Friend, Pray for me As you pass by; As you are now So once was I; As I am now So you will be; Therefore prepare for death And follow me. That's the favorile epitaph of a man who has spent the last 18 years hitch-hiking across Canada, recording Ihe inscriptions on more than tombstones in cemeteries. Wilson A. Stewart, a 53- year-old army pensioner, began digging into the history of early graveyards when he joined a Kingston, Ont., Mor- mon church. Part of Mormon doctrine requires church record the history of their an- cestry and Mr. Stewart started tracing his friends' ge- nealogy as a hobby. It was not until 1869 that Ontario piovincial law re- quired tire registration of grave sites and their occu- pants.

(AP) Whore gold once made men wealthy, Richard Tone is amassing a small fortune by selling SOcenl cans for ?6 each. Tone, who runs an antique shop hi this gold rush town, bought old galvanized cans from the state for basing his buy on the Eimplephilosophy that "everyone in the world wants a milk can.'1 Apparently he's right. The 5G-y e a r -o 1 d entrepreneur says in just 22 days he made a quick by selling cans to people who turn them into um- brella stands, washing ma- chines, coffee lables and even "a place for storing dog food." Honor priest GrtAMJM (HNS) Rev. Lawrence Redmond was guest of honor at a farewell supper in the Granum Community Hall held recently by members of St. Augustine's Parish. Following the buffet supper, Gene Bohmer presented Father Redmond with a gift from the parishioners. Mrs. Fedelia Fitz- patrick presented a gift from the CWL. i Father Redmond expressed his sorrow at leaving tie par- ish and thanked all those who had given their help during his three years in F o r t Macleod and Granum. torical source on family infor- mation before then. As Mr. Stewart sa.v pioneer grave sites destroyed to make way for modern develop- miinls, he developed an ambi- tion lo form a society that would preserve these silent remains of historical heritage. One of his major problems is convincing local authorities of his serious intent. "They immediately ftink tliey've got some kind of nut on their hands." He formed the Limestone Cemetery and Genealogical Society and sold memberships U> finance his work. For a lifetime fee, members have access to all records col- lected. Membership sales have moved slowly but during Ihe years 1.200 people, some of them living in Europe, hav: joined. The society is quartered in a condemned Edmonton hotel where records are filed and relics stored. Among ttie prize possessions is a Egyptian mummy. Occasionally Mr. Stewart loads his mummy along with a few unusual tombstones into an ancient bus and tours the country in an attempt lo stim- ulate a lively interest in (lie dead. ETERNAL RIGHT "It's not only my religious also a moral belief that something needs to be done to preserve old graves." Aside from their historical significance, Mr. Stewart says he believes the dead have an eternal right to their grave sites. He says it is the obliga- tion of the living to maintain them. The msL- project at present is a plan to hold a national conference of cemetery enthu- siasts in Ottawa so they can co-ordinate their activities. He hopes the conference, scheduled for late September, will influence the federal Par- liament to establish a ceme- tery commission that would work for the standardization of provincial laws regulating graveyards. "Until all these non-govern- ment records preserved only on grave markers are brought into the picture, we are losing part of our history." Mr. Stewart has a long way to go before completing a full record of headstone inscrip- tions. Only two per cent of the 25 million markers in Canada have been transcribed. But, as another of Mr. Wtt son's favorite epitaphs says: "He done what he could." PETER RABBIT LIVES. Peler Rabbit in a mar- velous new movie for children and adults.
