On November ;i last he went to live with a man named James Young, who is n fann- er at Ashmont. Ten days later he died of hemorrhage. Young went to a clergyman H Saddle Lake and secur- ed a certificate of death, and went hack farm, where he buried JMeKay without anv religious cere- mony. Yo.ung, recently proposed to form-a society in the district of a peculiar, socialistic natiire ,and in accordance with one of the rules of the society he took charge of the belongings of the deceased, which consisted of in cash, 50 Nakamun oil shares, three pairs of blankets, a watch and chain, and a violin.( The neighbors tell an interesting story of how Young has tried lo form a socialistic society iii the district on se era! occasions without success.

The society is undenominational and is so up-to-date that its members have equal suffrage. Unfaithful members must forfeit their suffrage, according to another rule, and oulv those who actually ocqup) land are eligible as members The charter of the proposed societ> is indeed a mosii interesting docu- ment. As-far as is known'-there were hut four members, including Young and the deceased.
