Many of the people adhere to the customs of the old lands and on every hand One would expect, from tho ' environment, to anticipate n picdomiu- | anco of non-Buelish .sentiment. Thus, j it struck one quite suddenly, says the. 1 representative, when, in a centre such j as Islnger, while a school fair and picnic was held, that one did not hoar among the children or teachers any language but English. This writer says: "Some of the children rode down ' the country roads and trails in most tin-Canadian looking riss driven by purely non-Rnplish settlers, but all were waring British flues and sing- ' ing.

The children held a school fair, at which the exhibits were quite excellent ;md embraced all those branches that may be seen iu any Keeina school exhibition. The writing .drawing and map work wore good hut. so were all the orher exhibits and they came In multitudes. ' The enterininr.ient exercises were of a high order, with nothing luui-Knp-lish. The singing was of the best, indeed the Theodore school choir was one of the best In the district and competed with a Yorkton school for the vocal championship.

"If I had to nnmo any one thing which seems unaccountably to have fallen out of most men's practical religion It would be the duty of thanksgiving; nnd If 1 were to write a treatise on the sins of good people. 1 would place Ingratitude as the first in the list."
