[Shirley Arlene Charlton]


Child Dies From Overdose Patent Pills
A sad accident last Thursday morning bereaved Mr. and Mrs. V. W. Charltonof Little Current, of their infant daughter, Shirley Arlene just a few days before her second birthday, due to an overdose of patent medicine pills which are said to contain strychnine.
The child was discovered by Mrs. Charlton playing with a bottle of the pills, and for a few minutes Mrs. Charlton was not seriously alarmed, not thinking the child had had opportunity to swallow a sufficient number to endanger her health. However, within 15 minutes convulsions set in and two doctors were hastily summoned. Unfortunately one effect of the poison was to lock the child’s jaws, so that difficulty was experienced in administering an emetic, and the little girl soon succumbed.
The unfortunate accident enlisted the sympathy of many townfolk, and the funeral service Saturday afternoon was quite impressive. Services were held at the Church of the Latter Day Saints at four p.m. and interment was in Mountain View cemetery.

George Chatwell
At Mindemoya Hospital December the 8th, 1932, at the early age of fifty- five years, there passed away in the person of George Chatwell, of Bass Creek, one who will be greatly missed in his community.
He was a man of upright sterling character, sober and industrious, whose word was as good as gold. A good neighbor and kind friend, who was ever ready to lend a helping hand to any one in trouble or need. Left an orphan, when a small boy, he knew much of the early life of Manitoulin, both on the farm and in the woods and by industry and thrift he has been able to shield his family from the hardships he himself endured. Though not in his usual good health for some time, he was so cheerful and industrious no one realized what he must endured in silence. He leaves to mourn his loss, his wife, five daughters and one son. Mina L., (Mrs. Edward McLennon), near Manitowaning; Violet L., teacher at Big Lake; Grace M. (Mrs. Harry Jewell), of Bass Creek, and Elsie and Margaret and one son John, at home.
The funeral took place on Saturday, Dec. 10th, to Hilly Grove Cemetery, and the large crowd who assembled both at the home and cemetery, also the beautiful floral offerings testified to the high esteem in which the deceased was held.

LITTLE CURRENT NURSE WAS POW
Kay Christie was one of only two Canadian nurses ever to be taken prisoner of war.
She and May Waters of Winnipeg were taken captive when the Japanese overran the British Colony of Hong Kong on Christmas Day, 1941.
I saw every method of torture there, “ Miss Christie said years later about her 20 months in captivity during World War II.
She died February 7, 1994 of Lous Gehrig’s disease, amyotrophis lateral sclerosis, in the veteran’s wing at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre. She was 82.
Born in Little Current on Manitoulin Island, she grew up in Toronto.
In a note to The Expositor, her sister Mollie Christie noted that in her eulogy, she was referred to as a “Haweater” and that while the Christie family left Little Current in 1920, they maintained contact with friends here for many years afterwards including the Trimbles, Turners, Fergusons, and Baxters.
When she graduated from Riverdale Collegiate she was too young to enter a nursing school so she took a business course and worked as a secretary.
She then got her training as a registered nurse at Toronto Western Hospital, her sister Mollie said.
She knew nurses would be needed during the war so on November 27, 1940, she joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps and was given the rank of Lieutenant.
By October, 1941, she was available for top-secret semi-tropical duty and advised that if she didn’t accept the posting she would be stuck at the hospital for a long time.
She sailed to Hong Kong on October 26 with the Royal Rifles of Canada, from Quebec, and the Winnipeg Grenadiers, who had been requested by the British government to reinforce its garrison.
On December 25, 18 days after the Japanese attacked the colony and the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbour, the British garrison and its Canadians surrendered.
For eight months, Miss Christie and Waters were held at the British Military Hospital, designated as Prisoner of War Camp A.
They were expected to treat their fellow prisoners although medical supplies ran out.
While the Japanese treated them correctly, the nurses were sickened by the sights and sounds of torture of Chinese at the guard gate near their quarters.
In August, they and 14 British nurses were loaded on to trucks “like cattle being taken to market” and driven to the Stanley Internment Camp on the south side of the island.
There were 2,400 internees who were fed meagerly morning and evening.
In September, 1943, the United States and Japan agreed to exchange prisoners and the Americans agreed to bring out the Canadian civilians, including Miss Christie and Waters.
It was a long, arduous trip back, but they got home on December 2, 1943.
Miss Christie left the army in 1945 and worked as a nurse secretary for the same doctor for more than 30 years.
In her retirement, she dedicated her life to helping fellow veterans.
She belonged to several associations, including the National Council of Veteran’ Associations, and was a life member of Hong Kong Veterans’ Association. She attended the Fort York Canadian Legion branch.
She leaves her sister Mollie, brother Jim and several nieces and nephews.
