Taken From the Wreck

The bodies of Southerland McKay and Charles Dean were recovered from the wreck of the schooner Ariadne yesterday afternoon. A justice of the peace of Woodville issued burial certificates and the bodies will leave for Toronto tomorrow. The remains of the Captain have not yet been found.

In connection with the death of young Hugh McKay, Captain of the ill fasted schr. Ariadne there remains a sad story that has never been given to the public. it was related to a reporter today. During the past season the Ariadne has traded more or less between Toronto and Waupau Island on the north shore. During one of these trips young McKay became acquainted with a young lady school teacher there and he made such good use of his time that it was given out a few weeks ago that during the coming holidays their marriage was to be consummated and preparations were being made for the event. The young lady did not receiver the news of her lover's death until Saturday.
