Tb eU Roman held It about the first of November In honor of Pomona. th goddess of fruit trees. In Britain tho Druids celebrated a festival at tbe naiim time In honor of tho aim cod. and la thanksgiving; for har-vast, and tba two featlvale seem to hare become one la tha ralnds of tba Bntona. Whan tba paopia became ChrtaUana tha early church fathers let them keep their old feast, but save It a new aaaoclation by holding It la commemoration of all departed souls. Thus the of tba festival ana to be called All Hallow ETen. Tba Kama comes from tba old K-"gnh word, haiwa. or, as we say now, holy. Many beliefs crew tip about this feast, sorb as tha belief that on this one night o. all the year, the spirits of the departeed were allowed to visit their old home. In many parts of the Ola countries food was left, heartba were carefully swept aad cfaairs ware set la order before the people of tfee village went to bad. Hallowe'en came on Sunday tola year, but most of the children celebrated on Saturday night, tome children go from door to door asking for Hallowe'en apples, others ro around taking; off gates and biding tbetn so that their owners cannot find them. Sometimes people have Hallowe'en parti and Inrite many of their friends. They play many tricks. There are usually a lot of apples tie! on the ends of strings IS .b,le " nanlng all around. I we:.t to a party on Hallowe'en that had doughnuts banging' all around to bite at as they were not so slippery as the apple. Nearly everyone that tried wot a doughnut. On Hallowe'en night the college students In Winnipeg celebrated In fine style. Tbey had a parade.

Kaeh college put on a stunt and Premier Norrla gave a speech. - FANNY MACLEOD, Age 14. 44 Cathedral are, Orade t. Lux ton school.
