A Land ox Opportunity and Service
Canada, am] Western Canada In particular, lias frequently been describee]
as u young man's country���u country iu which llie humblest hoy possessed of
ability nnd energy, plus ambition, lias an opportunity ol rising to the top in
any walk of 1 ile ho limy choose, and oC achieving, the highest posilion -which
it*is.within tho power of his fellow citizens to bestow. Over nnd over again
has the correctness of this opinion been verilied'iii the lives of young men who
have risen to positions of influence and power in this counlry whereas they
probably would hare led uneventful lives had tliey-remained in their old environment.   .
It is doubtful, however, If quite so striking- nn example of the rapid rise
of a young man from very humble surroundings Lo a high and honored position
has ever been afforded as in the ease of Hon, Charles A Dunniug, until a lew
days ago Premier of Saskatchewan and iioav MLnlster of Railways and Canals
in the Dominion Government. The story of flfr. Running's life since coming
to Western Canada reads like a romantic fairy tale.
Mr. Dunning lias not yet reached his fony-flrsfc birthday, having heen
born in Leicestershire, England, on July 3.1, 1SS5. As a youth of 17, and delicate in health, he emigrated do Saskatchewan, iiud began work as a farm,hand.
.Tho following year ho homesteaded at Deavenlalo, Sask., and, like all new.
sol tiers without worldly wealth, began to break Ills quarter section and erect
his log and sod buildings. " In the year prior to Mr, Dunniug's arrival in what
is now the Province of Saskatchewan, the Territorial Grain Growers' Association was organized,, and the newly-arrived English lad soon identified.-himself,
wiih the "Local" in his district, and thus commenced to render public service";
and climb the ladder of -fame. - -
Within a few years he was a director of the Association, then vice-presi
dent for four years. During this period the Saskatchewan Co-operative Elevator Co. was created, and Mr. Dunning was appointed ils first General Manager, whicli position he held for six years, developing the infant Company
���until if reached,the posilion of being the -world's greatest initial grain handling
concern. Then, in'11916, when W. M. Martin succeeded Walter Scott asyPre-
mieWof Saskatchewan, he called Mr. Dunning-- to* his. cabinet as Provincial
Treasurer, and, with the possible exception o�� Quebec,'no Province's finances
���were fetter handled .during the last of the jvar-years.and during the diflicult
years of readjustment and depression that folio-wed than were thoso'of Sas.
katchewan.
/In 1922, Mr. Martin retired from the Premiership,'and Mr. Dunning was
tlur unanimous choice of the Liberals of Saskatchewan as his successor.
Thus within, nine years of arriving in Saskatchewan, and at the early age of
26, Mr. Dunning was General Manager, of .one of the Dominion's biggest com-
:.pa.ni.es; at the age of 31 this English emigrant Lad-was.a. cabinet minister; at-
37 he was Prime Minister of the Provkic<?. What otlier country can offer a
parallel to such a record! .--.' ...���'���*���-���..��� ���.���""'*<
During the war Mr. Dunning threw his .abounding-energy and organizing
abilities into the task of furnishing the wherewithal to enable Canada and the
Empire to worthily and successfully play their purl.- He was; chairman of the
Victory Loans campaigns hi Saskatchewan lor three years iii succession', and
Director of Food Production In Canada (luring tlie last critical year of 191S.
r. And now, secure iu llie Premiership, witli ,an overwhelming majority In
the Legislature following an election of less tli an a year ago, Mr. Dunning
relinquishes a safe and comparatively easy "position to go to Ottawa and take
over one. of the heaviest aiul most responsible portfolios in. the Dominion
Government. And those who know him most Intimately are.agreed that he
does so Jn .'order that he may thereby render still, greater service to the country of his adoption and the /Empire which gave him birth,   [y'xz. ������>
ft Is well forCana'da that it. can provide such opportunities-for advancement to ils people, and it is even belter for Camula that when theoccasion and
��� thc need arise, her sons are willing to give her their rery best in effort and
service. . "        "WW ���'���'.-:* ���'.  '
Apart.altogether from p'arlizan feelings and affiliations,' the people of
Western Canada aro proud of the achievements of Mr. Dunning and rejoice
to liave him in tho Government at Ottawa at a time.when strong men, filled
.with initiative, and capable of safe but progressive -leadership are ���urgently
needed. Although a Westerner by his own choice, and fully seized with the
problems and needs of this section of* the.Dominion, Mr. Dunning's vision is
not restricted to the prairies. He will approach and deal with Canadian problems,.not from any narrow or sectional .viewpoint, but in. the interests of Canada as. a whole. *.-,,"
Knowing the West as lie does and its enormous;possibilities, he will apply
���iiis energies beneficially for the West, not because.it is tlle West, but because
thereby the welfare and prosperity oC Canada S3 a national'unit'will be advanced. ' Political friend-and political foe will, therefore,-be found uniting
���In a hopethat the ...same *unb rplc.cn _record^
marked his care'er-in the past will'be.surpassed in the larger arena of national
���affairs.    It is Canada which -will be. the gainer tlser.ebjt '.,*.'*
Gigantic Airship  lines
Service Will Bring Canada Within
Thirty  Hours'-of. Great   Britain
Gigantic airships on lines encircling
Lhe globe, with Cast,, aeroplane feeding
them,, were outlined in a comprehensive address on "progress in civil aviation" by Air Vice-Marshal Sir Set'ton
Branckuer, K.C.B., director of,'- civil
aviation in the British'.air ministry,,at
tho Empire'Club, Toronto.
Great Britain is devoting much
money ��� in the development of two
gigantic airships, each with a capacity
of 5,000,000 cubic feet, which is-twice
the slK.e of any airship flown so far,
I'or a service between Indai aiid'London, England, and which eventually
will include Australia. This in turn
will bring Canada within 25 or 30
Jiours from the old laud, Sir Scfton declared.
The new ship will carry one hundred passengers comfortably and even-
convenience will be provided.' The
trip to India is planned to take 100
hours flat without a" slop...
One ship will burn heavy oil in the
engines, while the otlier will derive its
power from a mixture of kerosene nnd
hydrogen, which is an experiment.

Pan-American  Congress
Pits
Con-
For  Canada's   Entry   Into
gress Is Made At Toronto
Canada's entry Into the run-American congress was urged hy Dr. Clarence ,T. Owens, president of the Pan-
American Commercial congress, ln an
address lo the Canadian Club iit Tor-
onior I lc also expressed lhe hope
that Canada would recognize the
United Slates diplomatically, and send
ft representative lo "Washington.
In pleading lor Canada's entry in
the Pan-American congress, Dr.
Owens pointed out that in tho new
Pan-American' building tho Canadian
coat-of-anns occupied a position of
honor with that ot Llie United States,
and-that a Canadian chair, piovidcd
for the governing boaid, was no
doubt still stored somewhere in tho
building.     /
An official invitation has becn sent
lo- Ottawa by tho Pan-Ameiican congress, Dr. Owens said, and he was
confident thai belore long tho congress
would be truly pan-Ameiiean, which
it could not really he .so long us Canada was not a member. .

Many of the sounds of the present

Steam  Cooling  Said to Keep  Engine
At Even Temperature
Freezing In winter and overheating
in summer will no longer"threaten
motorists, if advocates of steam cooling have their hopes fulfilled. Steam
cooling, they say, is the cure-all for
these ills.
SLeam cooling is a method by wliich
the water in the ctfoling system lcecps
tho engine at an, eflicient temperature
suinmcr and winter, yet evaporates at
the bolilng point; It is cooled through
the radiator and returns into the system still warm enough to keep tho
temperature of the engine even at all
times, '���
One advantage claimed for this system is that there's no worry about
radiator leakage, siuco the radiator

"Little Boy Blue" Used In Impressive
Service For "Child's Poet"
AVhen   Eugene   Field wrote "Lillie
Boy Blue," hc had no idea that lie had
penned   words  \hat would form llie
most impressive parf of a service held
_ to honor his memory 31 years after
, his dentin     Yut Judge Jesse Iloklom,
who delivered tlie oration when Field's
casket was removed lo a specially 'hull t
tomb  a few days ago,  could hardly
have'chosen wijji del ter   care,   lines
- more suitable for such a service.
Opinions differ as to the best
��� .thing-Eugene' Field ever wrote," yer
they agree that his "Little Boy Blue"
has a depth of pathos and a touch of
human nature that finds a responsive
chord iu the hearts ol thousands, pai-
ticulaily those lrom whose homes little children have been taken.
What could be more intimate than
his word picture of tho room where
his "Lillie Boy Blue"���-played with his
toys, as in the lines:
\ The little toy dog is covered with dust,
But sturdy and staunch he" stands,
Tho little tin soldier is red with rust,
And his musket motilds in his hands.
Then,   after   desciibing   in -.fender
.lines the taking away of the little life,
Field returns  once moie  to  the hu-
-manizing of these loy liiends of the
nursery, concluding: _
Aye, faithful to Little Boy Blue they
stand,
- Each in lhe same old place;
Awaiting the touch of a little hand
And the smile of a liLflc face.       W
Aud  they  wonder,  as  waiting  these
long years through,
In the duft of that little chair,
What has become of our Little Boy
Blue
Since he kissed them and put them
there. >      '

Some Ojd Superstitions
Studenis of Folk Lore Report Many
Still Under Spell
A distinguished woman stnden'l of
folk-lore said to a Daily IW..H reporter
that there is slill u very widespread
belief in wiLchcraft iu out-of-the-way
country places and among old-L'ashion-
ed people. She added:
, In a good many.villages today there
are people, mostly old women, who
are supposed io cast spells and cause
illness lo man and beast, and even
death.
Sometimes, people who think that
they are suffering irom a charm cast
by a.witch go to her and draw blood
from her by scratching her.
One method ol trying to get rid of
a -curse "cast by a witch is to obtain
something belonging to her, amljhen
to burn it.- To "burn a witch's possessions is supposed to cause her pain.
The'Doa.ii of Manchester, Dr. Hewlett Johnson, said:
Although it" is the work oF the
Church to pul down superstition, we
all have our little supeistilions.
'"Touching wood" is derived .partly
from the idea oi' touching the Cross,
antl fhe significance of placing a
poker across-the lire bars, to'make
the fire burn up, although few women
who do it know why^ is to make the
sign of tho Cross.^    -'-
Walking under a laddefr is avoided because 2,000 years ago condemned" people al the Tiber had tt> walk
under a ladder to execution.
V Manchester doctor . saitl that
when he,, was ,callcd to a case ot
whooping cough, he found tliat'the
mother had baked a 'mouse in a pie,
believing ihat this tit-bit"'would cure

���"J'he late Lord Northcliffe, the great

Dog Showed Perseverance
Irish Setter( Puppy Travelled Eight
Months to Find Old Home
We have given many stories of won
deriul feats by- dogs. Here is another very remarkable^ case reported
iu an English newspaper.
A boy living outside Paris senfto a
breeder of dogs in the north of Prance
requesting him 'to send him an Irish
Setter puppy.
The puppy was placed in a crate and
sent by train to. the Gare du Nord station, where it was received by its new
master, removed from the crate, tali-
en across Paris in a taxi, and put In
another train guarded by its. master.
On reaching ils destination,' a little
village about fourteen kilometres on
the other side ol Paris, the dog was[
taken on a lead to its new home.
During the evening the dog was'released for exercise in the garden,
which was entirely enclosed.
When the time, came ior the dog lo
he shut up for tho night, however, it
was nowhere to^be seen. Its master
searched high and (low, consulted the
police ,aud was out half the night In
vain.- No trace of the truant could
be found.
Eighty months later came a letter
from the breeder saying the dog had
just arrived home! Por all those
months the poor-creature had wandered about in search of its old home.

"If only 50 per cent, of the acreage of

Eastertide
Friday, April 2nd is Good Friday,
and will be observed as a religious
holiday in, all Christian countries.
' Easter never occurs before March
22nd or after April 25th. In 1761
and 1818 it fell on March 22nd, but
neither in this or thc following century will such be the case again. " In
1913 it fell on March 23rd, as it did
in 1845 aiul 1856. In 1848 Easter
fell on April 23rd and in 1859 on
April 24th. Not in the past dozen
years has Krister fallen on the date
which will be observed this year.
There is; much interesting information in connectin ii with the observance
, of Easter, some of which may not be
known to many of our readers. It
would appear, according to most
'. authorities, that the word Easter is
derived from Eastre, a Saxon goddess
whose festival was annually kept at
about the same time as Easter.
In the ancieirt church the celebra
tion of Easter lasted eight days. After
the eleventh century, however, it was
limited to .three, and in latter times
generally to two days. It was formerly the favorite time for performing
the rite of baptism. The courts of
justice were closed, and alms dispensed to the poor and needy, who
were even feasted in the churches.
Slaves also received their freedom at
that season; and as the austerities of
Lent were over;., the people gave
themselves up to enjoyment. To the
popular sports and dancing were
added farcical exhibitions.
-On Easter., day the people saluted
each other with the Easter kiss,- and
on the exclamation "Surrexit" (He,
is risen) to which .the reply was
"Vere Surrexit" (He is risen indeed)
���a custom still retained in the Greek
Church.
The chief, solemnity has always
consisted of the celebration of the
Lord's Supper; and Easter is the one
time of year at which by the Fourth
Lateran Council, Catholics must
�����. receive communion.
Many of the popular observances
connected with Easter are clearly of a
, pagan origin, and traceable to the
feast of the Saxon deity ""Eastre."
The worship of this deity introduced
into England by the Saxons, continued
to be celebrated in many parts of.the
north of Germany down to the beginning of the nineteenth century by
the kindling of bonfires and numerous
other tites. Like the May observances of England, it was especially a
festival of joy.    .
One of the most popular features
of Easter was the Easter Egg, an old
" emblem of the Resurrection. In
Germany, instead of the egg, is represented an emblematic print in which
three hens are holding a basket in
which are three eggs; whereas ,in
Vienna, the Easter Egg- is composed
of silver, mother-of-pearl or bronze,
in which various knick-knacks were-
placed. ' Formerly in England, the
Easter Egg was blessed by the priest,
and being elaborately colored, was
=often=kept,as.a.r_uaniulet.
The proper time for the celebration
of Easter has occasioned no little controversy. In the second century a
dispute arose on this point between
the Eastern and Western- churches.
The great mass of the Eastern
churches celebrated Easter on the
fourteenth day of the first Jewish
month or moon, considering it to be
the equivalent of the Jewish Passover.
The-Westerft churches kept it on the
Sunday after the fourteenth day, holding that it was the commemoration" of
the Resurrection of Jesus. ��� The
Council of-Nice (325 A.D.) decided
in favor of-the Western usage.���
