[Katharine [McLennan] was involved with the Victorian Order of Nurses with raising money and attending meetings of the VON. World War II saw her activities in the community increase with her involvement in the Red Cross and blood donor drives. While she continued to be involved with the Louisbourg Museum and the acquisition and arrangement of artifacts, Katharine also headed the blood drive in Sydney. The old Methodist Church, located on North Charlotte Street in Sydney, was used as the blood donor clinic site. She began traveling around the island to supervise other clinics. In October of 1943, Katharine visited a blood donor clinic in New York and gained ideas there to assist with organization of local clinics. Her contribution to the war effort saw her making up Prisoner of War parcels.

August 16, 1853

We regret to announce the death, at Halifax, on the morning of Tuesday last [August 16], after a few days illness, of Thomas Jost Esq., formerly of this Town - intelligence of which was received by Telegraph early on that day. Mr. Jost's long residence here - the honorable nature of his mercantile pursuits - his integrity - and his worth in all the relations of life, are too well and too generally known to even need being recapitulated. Though he had ceased, latterly, to be an inhabitant of this place, yet his frequent visits hither, and occasional superintendence of his extensive business in Sydney, scarcely allowed us to realize that he had removed from among us, but now that the dread messenger, Death, has removed him from earth, we shall not fail to estimate his loss. To his bereaved family and friends, we tender our sincere condolence.

[MG17, 6 - Book 52, pp. 206-210]

[On September 7, 1789, the Crown granted the land known as "Louisa Gardens" to Patrick Rooney Nugent, Esquire. This parcel of land was estimated to be about thirty-five acres. Mr. Nugent sold this parcel of land to His Excellency, William Macarmick, Liuetenant [sic: Lieutenant] Governor of the Island, for the sum of 5 shillings. Mr. Macarmick died intestate and his daughter Catherine sold "Louisa Gardens" to Mr. George Edward Burchell. On December 29, 1885 Mr. George Edward Burchell sold "Louisa Gardens" to his brother Mr. James Thomas Burchell for the sum of $200.00. On May 21, 1903 part of the parcel of land formerly known as "Louisa Gardens" was sold by Mr. James T. Burchell and his wife Suzannah to Mr. William MacVay for one dollar. Mr. MacVay was a bricklayer who moved here from New Brunswick to work at the Dominion Iron and Steel Co. The lot by this time had been subdivided and was now only 41 feet by 100 feet. Mr. MacVay took out a mortgage in 1903 and built this house [at 115 George St].

CHARLES SYDNEY JOST (December 3, 1850 or 1851-February 4, 1921)

June 1, 1892

  • Halifax, N.S., June 1 - A petition was filed today in the divorce court by Chas. S. jost, merchant, of Sydney, C.B. from his wife on the following grounds. On April 6, 1891, she left home and has not since returned. During the winter of 1891 and at other times, the petition alleges, she kept company with E.T. TRITES, who paid her particular attention. Mrs. jost is also charged with keeping company with one O.E. SMITH, also with flirting with Chas. DAVIS, mechanical engineer at Stellarton. It may be necessary to say, in order to avoid possible misunderstanding because of the similarity of names, that none of the above are Moncton parties.

... L.E. JOST, 79, VETERAN SYDNEY BUSINESS MAN ...

Not only mentally alert [in 1927], but physically very active for a man of his years. As a matter of fact the interviewer found him engaged, with W.P. BROWN, another veteran of about the same years, shingling a portion of the roof of his dwelling, 15 feet above ground, without the aid of staging ...

Mr. Jost was born in Sydney in 1848, but when about nine months old was taken by his family to Halifax, where re resided for many years ...

"When I had saved $1000, I went into business for myself, with another young man. We had our shop on Granville Street. I remained in Halifax until 1894 when I returned to Sydney and entered business here." [with his brother Charles E Jost?]

Between the time when he went to Halifax as a child and his return here to go into business he spent about two years in Sydney working for his uncle [[James William Jost, 1807-1880], who conducted a store here. Mr. Jost pointed out a number of interesting landmarks in the street near his home [61 Esplanade], which at one time was in the centre of the retail business of the town of Sydney. The Ingrahams were the first to venture up town, and when they built on the corner of Prince and Charlotte streets, where Nathanson's book store now stands, people considered that they were moving out into the country. Others followed, and gradually business all moved out into Ward 2 and Ward 1 became almost purely residential, some of the old stores being turned into dwellings.

"I built this house by day's work at a total cost of about $1,600," he said. "The same type of dwelling, built as solidly, would today cost at least $5,000 and maybe more. I was offered $6,000 for it during the steel boom in 1901-2, but did not part with it because I always like to live where I could over look the harbour."

THE JOSTS OF SYDNEY: 1895

JOST

  • Municipality Of Cape Breton v. Jost.

    Before Henry, J., (at Sydney, C B.)

    The wife of defendant left him, and defendant published a notice that he would not be responsible for any debts incurred by her. She subsequently became insane, and was maintained by the Commissioners of Public Charities, who claimed from the plaintiff municipality payment for her maintenance. The plaintiff municipality paid the claim and then sued the defendant.

    Held, that as the defendant, when his wife became insane, became directly liable to the Commissioners of Public Charities for her maintenance, the payment made by the plaintiff municipality must be regarded as voluntary, and judgment should be entered for defendant.

    Gillies, Q. C., and McEcen, for plaintiff.
    Moseley for defendant.

    Decided: July 4th, 1895. Henry, J.:

    I have come to the conclusion in this case that there must be judgment for the defendant.

    I cannot see that any legal liability on the part of the plaintiff Municipality has been shown, and such alleged liability constitutes the basis of the action as laid, and would be, under the circumstances in proof, an essential element in the material for any action which could be brought by the Municipality to recover the claim in question.

    A perusal of section 25 of the Act (Ch. 38 R. S.) will show, that the conditions necessary to make the Municipality liable for the care and maintenance of the defendant's wife at the Provincial Hospital for the Insane, were not present in this case.

    Moreover, section 23 shows that the plaintiff Municipality, instead of recognizing the claim against them, should have shown that the defendant's wife was not chargeable to the County of Cape Breton, but to her husband.

    I am of the opinion that the defendant became directly liable to the Commissioners of Public Charities for the care and maintenance of his wife under the circumstances in proof, notwithstanding the publication of the notice on which he relies, because, although by leaving him, as shown by the evidence, she would, upon proper notice on his part become disentitled to make him liable for necessaries, that disability would cease to exist upon her becoming non compos mentis, a condition which obviously negatives the continuance of that (responsible) attitude of rebellious desertion which disentitles a married woman to that kind of protection which the law as to necessaries affords her.

    With these views, it appears to me that the recognition by the plaintiff Municipality of the claim of the Commissioners of Public Charities, in connection with the care and maintenance of defendant's wife at the Provincial Hospital for the Insane, must be regarded as voluntary, and that, therefore, judgment should be entered for the defendant, with costs.

  • 5. Maintenance — Commissioners of Public Charities—Voluntary payment to. by municipality—Right to recover from lunatic's husband.]—The wife of the defendant left him. and the defendant published a notice that he would not be responsible for any debts incurred by her. She subsequently became insane, and was maintained by the Commissioners of Public Charities, who claimed from the plaintiff municipality payment for her maintenance. The plaintiff municipality paid the claim and then sued the defendant: —Held, that, as the defendant, when his wife became insane, became directly liable to the Commissioners of Public Charities for her maintenance, the payment made by the plaintiff municipality must be regarded as voluntary, and judgment should be entered for the defendant.

  • In Cape Breton v. Jost (1895) 40 N. S. 79, the court held that a husband became liable for the support and care of his insane wife notwithstanding the publication of a notice by him that he would not be liable for necessaries furnished to her.

Register of International Correspondence Schools ... with an explanation of the I.C.S. system of instruction by mail, Third Edition (Scranton: International Correspondence Schools, 1908), p. 221

How to Use This List NAMES and addresses of the students are arranged in the following manner:

The first column rives the name of the student and the last two figures of the year in which he was enrolled. The second column gives his address, the third column indicates the course taken, and the fourth column shows the number of subjects and drawing plates he has completed, and also whether he has received a certificate of proficiency or a diploma. In those cases in which there are ten or more students whose names are given on this list in one town or city, the name of the town or city is printed in bold-face type over the second column. It is then followed by the name of the county in Small Caps. When the number of students is less than ten in any one town or city, the name of the town or city in which the student resides is printed first, and is followed by the street and number, if any, and followed again by the name of the county printed in Small Caps. The name of the state, or country in case of foreign countries, is printed at the top of each page, when practicable, and in the case of the Dominion of Canada, it is followed by the name of the province. The cities and towns are then arranged alphabetically according to the states or provinces, and can be readily located as soon as the state or province has been found.

In explanation of the third column, it may be stated that in order to distinguish our students and to tell in all cases what course each is taking, whether it is a revised course or an old course, etc., we give each student what we call a "class letter," and also an identification number.

This class letter is usually limited to one or two letters, but may, in a few cases, consist of three letters. These class letters and numbers are given in the third column, and are followed in the fourth column by abbreviations indicating the number of subjects completed, the number of drawing plates completed, and whether the student has a diploma or certificate of proficiency. The number of subjects is indicated by the number preceding the letter S. The number of plates is indicated by the number preceding the letter P. If the student has a diploma, the preceding abbreviations are followed by the letter D, and if he has a certificate of proficiency, the letter С is used instead of D. There is really very little difference between our diploma and our certificate of proficiency. The diploma we reserve for the longer and more difficult courses, and the certificate of proficiency is issued to students that have completed single subjects or short courses .... [p. xiii]

[Note: In 1883, the first correspondence program in the United States gained academic respectability through recognition by the State of New York, as a valid educational program was the Chautauqua Institute, which trained Sunday school teachers. In 1891, the International Correspondence Schools (ICS) grew from the Colliery Engineer School of Mines. ICS initially used correspondence to train miners, railroad, and iron workers. - http://www.nwlink.com/~Donclark/hrd/history/correspondence.html ]

... L.E. JOST, 79, VETERAN SYDNEY BUSINESS MAN ...

"I built this house by day's work at a total cost of about $1,600," he said. "The same type of dwelling, built as solidly, would today cost at least $5,000 and maybe more. I was offered $6,000 for it during the steel boom in 1901-2, but did not part with it because I always like to live where I could over look the harbour."
