I ''FOR OF SUCH AS THESE IS * * THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN" A A A .;. A .;. A A .> (Winnipeg Free Press "Heliograma") ] Early in February we published here (without names> a-letter received at! the Department of Education from a teacher who had just opened one of the schools in non-English-speaking districts cf Manitoba, the establishment , c." which, under the energetic 'supervision of Mr. Ira Stratton. Special School Organizer, is a work for which the name of 'Hon. Dr. Thorn-tof, *lie Minister of Education, will be'hem in deserved tumor in the years to' come. . .... You may not have glanced at this column thai day. and so we may say briefly here that^ that letter related in the most matter-of-| fact manner that the brave, compet-j ent. ^fine-spirited young woman isiiej sad to say. a widow i who wrote > ii-i If we all did our duty as well j as - sap' is doing hers!)-had by the j end of bev first week got her night .school started for men. had begun the hot lunch system in her day sciiooi, anil was preparing to teach First Aid �-rtios;. valuable in any community, but .incalculably valuable in those remote j pioneer districts. 1 Two days later we recorded that several requests had been received for the name of thattteacher and the address of her school, and we told of one well-known \Vinn%>egger who came into our office and put the price of a fine box of candy in our hand, asking us. as a favor to him. to send it to her. without mentioning his name. . . . And he and ourself agreed, in more emphatic language than is altogether suitable for publication here, that each one of these.truly self-sacrificing young women; pioneer schoolteachers in the non-English-speaking districts, has more genuine patriotism and public spirit in h*r little finger than there is in all the bodies and soals i if they h�re souls) of all the politicians who have done their werst to bedevil Canada with their scurvy, accursed politics. * Well, the letter from that teacher acknowledging that box of candy, went astray. And as we had sent the box by registered mail, we had the matter looked into. We have now received a letter from her, in which she writes: . ;" ... 1 wrote by return mail, and i am jorry yon did not receive my letter, as you will think 1 am ungrateful, which is not the case. Few things in my life hsve ever given me greater pleasure. The chocolates were very much appreciated-, the children each had some-and the men at the night school-and the last were eaten by the women who came to'the'boys' and girls' club meeting, and had afternoon tea-and the box is being used now, and will always be valued. The children wrote a letter of thanks for some sewing material that was sent anonymously-from one of the people you mentioned). .,1 thought- �4nit from a letter I got litis.morning I think it may have been Mr. Stratton sent it. However, I am sending .you the letter, in caae it was one of the peopTe you mentioned. Yours very gratefully, at 9.00 AT SIXTH ST. S., DOMINION BLOCK, DIRECTLY OPPOSITE GRAHAM MOTOR CO.'S GARAGE.
