With the death of IJucknam Pasha, as his title was in Turkey, ends the career oi one of the most romantic of Canadian men, whose life story reads like a novel and who died with tho smoke of battle hovering near and the boom of big guns in his ears, "ucknam was one of those romantic ouths whose spirit of adventure car- y them into many strange spheres life, and prompt them in tho most tzardous of undertakings.

How He to When the battleship Mcdjidiab. was built at Philadelphia for Turkey m 904 -Bucknam was to dc- iyer the boat to the Sultan. Dehvet t he did. Nothing suited nun better. On his arrival at the port of Con- stantinople, the young ..admiral cele- irated the occasion in fitting style, bv banging away with blank-shells, rom all the mighty, tuns loat. He and his officer! were enjoying themselves immensely when the sul- tan's royal cutter appeared along- side and up clabored a be-fezzed functionary with a polite but firm request from the head of harem-land to "cut out the noise." Bucknam sent the officer back with an equally polite but equally firm rejoinder, which in effect was that the Sultan should go to blazes. This typical'Canadian (or reply brought the Sultan to his feet with a jerk, and he made i personal inspection of the numan animal from across the wat- ers who bad so calmly cast his im- perial commands to the winds. ita result was that Bucknam got a per- manent job, with the Sultan as his naval advisor. Later on he got so popular with the Sultan and the Brand visier that he was given su- preme command of the Turkish neetj at which height he -mtil just a few months ago. Living Retired On the outbreak of the present war it is understood Bucknam was living in retirement in Constantinople, lit bad not visited Canada in -years.

Bucknam has relatives living m Al- icria and in Winnipeg. Qeo. Buck- nam' of Winnipeg, an official of Ww CNR., is an uncle, and Mis. Wright, of Deer, Alta., formerly of-Tabor, is a cousin. They heard from Bucknam for years. Uansford Bucknam was born ill Ilantsport, N. S., in re- moved with his parents to Mains when an infant. His wife was Miss Rose Thayer, oi Philadelphia, to whom he was married in January, 1904. He commanded- resaels on bottt the' Atlantic and Pacific coasts and the Circal Lakes. Later, he became superintendent of Cramp's shipyards in Philadelphia, and 'was trial com- mander of the United States battle- ship Maine. He was appointed naval adviser and A. D.
