No BVAtem of examination# yet de fined for our school* ha# jirown eu tirely satisfactory. In the educational field the written examination baa it* friends and it fees. Certain it is that there are defect# a# well u* merit# iu the system. There is an examination, however, though not applied by th* teacher, whose value cannot be questioned. It is the examination to which each individual subject* him self. Kvery true student turns his gaze inward occasionally and looks at himself, so to speak. Here is the true examination. This is the test which tells every individual whether he is advancing or not. A grade given by a teacher or earned in a w ritten examination weighs as naught when compared with the self con sciousness of the individual. The boy who fails on the questions gimi may at the same time realize that there has (hw*u a deepening fnd widening of his intellectual faculties. Here then is something far more val uable than a mere grade or mar Ip. It is the mysterious something which frequently brings a dull boy in school to the irnnt in life. No more isoit able time for self measurment can be found tbau the holidays. Now eVery boy aud girl should take a mental inventory: note the gain or loss; sub ject yourself to a fair, impartial exV aminatiou. Then will come a rwo 1 lntion to improve the future, and this resolution will be a great assist ance in future efforts. If your inventory shows that you have ac complished much during the first of the year, then you can feel sure that still (tetter work can be done during the latter pn*t. On the other band, if it shows that you have not accom plished as much as might bare been done, the opportunity remains to do l»etter. F.
