Tki ^BVSYlSTk THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR A successful Kritish attack was carried out on tho western front last night, a con.sideruhle number of prisoners hclns taken. There is evidently littlo change in the situation ou the Italian front. . The American forces are making themselves felt on the western front, their attacks during tho past few weeks having been diso-itrous for the Germans.. TOO IV1ANY SCHOOL EXAMINATIONS. Tho Calgary Albertan wisely remarks that children are sent to school lo acquire information, not to cram .heir head.s so that they may answer examination iiuestions only. Tbe point is well taken. We have iiccomc wedded to the examination ' syatetn: as the means o� delenuining the fitness of .a child' for promotion. .\s a matter of fact, tho examination is a very poor test, especially in the case' of the younger children. Held, 4s they usually are, in. the summer months when the boys and girls are drawing strongly on their store of vitality, tho examination i.^ mostly imposition.  The best that has ever been said about the examination method Is that it la the only workable scheme. We do not know this because we have never tried any other scheine. We act as if wo were -wedded td.the eiamlna'-tion system until the end of'our days. We venture to state that if examinations were- entirely abolished for a generation,and the ' ciuestion bt the fitness of a child, for promotion were left entirely to the (eacher to decide, we would have.better educational institutions, and our 'Children -would be taught "more of th(5se things useful to therii In after-school life instead of having their heads crammed with a lot of jumbled facts useful only during examination week. THE LADIES GET REVENGE. Man Is always scornful of feminine fashions, observes the staid and sober �'Toronto Globe," and is never . so ^-ohsclouB of his superiority as when he compares his own mode of dress, ?o ratiorial, so practical, so free from foppery-so he prides himself-with ihe frivolities and vanities of woman's attire. He Is never without a ihaft in his quiver of ridicule and satire for the costumic whims of the other sex. What could be more absurd than -woman's custom of baring liur throat to the blasts of winter or covering her shoulders with fur on a bllsterlug suromer day-? Woman's hats, woman's skirts, woman's shoes- without these to whet their wits on, ilio' professional humorists and illus-irators wotild bo robbei} of a largo part of thoir stock In trade. The Irate husband and his wltels dressmaking and millinery bills furnish inexhaustible material for the workshop-in which the standard jokes are forged. Gomes Dr. Walter B. .Tones in The Medical Hecord to demolish this airy fabric of man's' coiicei't. He asserts that the very irrationality of woman's garb against which man has railed. Is its strong point: / "Women's dress takes no note of season, time of the day, or climate. "The question -whether thin slippers or high boots, thin stockings or openwork, a cloth or a chiffon dress, high neck with a feather boa and clo9o-flt wrists or low jieck and bare arras, fur or cloth hat or bareheaded --all of tliese questlonB are decided solely by the--^ccasIon, and never by the Beason or the vyeather. Tho fact 1b it is a familiar observation that women are auperlor to weather, while men are its slaves." donsoquently, he adds, most of the ^ol^s and catarrlis occur. . among malea; It. is the men, not the. women, who make whatever disagreeable throat and nose n'olses aru heard buut the IrouHes-, and the cuspidor is wasijuljiie, jiot femlnliit). "It is ouly necsssatT to note the size and -char-oler of tlfe woman's pocket handkar-^iu(," siiys Dr. James, "as compared GERMAN LANGUAGE IN THE SCHOOLS. At the last regular uieetinK of the school board tlie nuesHo" of teaching modern languages by ihe direct metliod was discussed briefly. ..Vt tliat meeting it was brou,i;ht out tl\at ("'er-man is not being tauglit in ilie lli.cli School, and tho members of tlie bo:'.rd of education expressed tlio opinion that it was not likely to bo. However, the question is of ..;nch general interest at tliis' tiiuc, especially in view of the widespread agitation in the United Stateti to discontinue the teaching of German in the -schools of that country, that the tol-iowir.^ discussion of the German language l/j- the Winnipeg I-"reo Pre.-;.' is worth repeating: The view of the people on this continent who are advocaliug a general boycott of the study of German in the colleges and universities is'not shared ; by the educationalists In Great !^ri- j tain --ivho are thinking of the conditions which the educational system of the country must bo prepared to meet j when the war is over. About a year i ago the British Prime Minister ap-1 pointed a commission* to enquire into the study of modern languageg^in the education lustltutlons of the Country. The report of.this body., recently sub-milled,'calls for no reduction :'of; the measure of attention given- to German. The general effect of the report is that the amount of time devoted to the study of modern languages should be greatly increased. The need of greater facilities for the study of foreign languages by the officers of the army and navy is strongly emphasized. The adoption of higher language qualification for the general consular service is advised, together with the freer use of the service? of women trained in foreign language.-. Another recommendation is that .new professorships and lectureships be established for instruction in the language, literature. history and economic system of"the.five prin-"cipal .Jiuropeau countries and tliat "the allowance for French bo half I "as much again as for each of the i four remaining langauges." The calculated disloyalty of German settlers who, In many places, seek through the public school systepi to perpetuate an alien allegiance, explains and justifies the agitation in the L'nited .States against the use or study of German in the public schools. There.' as in this country, it is essential that every child should know Knglish and In order that the attainment of this end may be assured the use of hjreign languages may well he eliminated from the schools; and their study In elementary grades forbidden. To propose a general boycott of German in colleges and universities, however, Is a vastly different matter.
