I  Friday, January 17, 1913  WHAT'S THE  MATTER WITH THE  SCHOOLS?  Criticism of our system of public  education, provoked by the startling  deficiencies of high school students,  will he still further encouraged by the  statement that' seven students were  found in New York high schools who  were so deficient in mathematics that  they could not add one and one, or  multiply one by one.    '  Only the other day a test made at  Spokane showed that a considerable  number of the high school students  had no knowledge whatever of our  national anthem.  What is the matter with our public  schools? It is apparent that.something is wrong with our educational  system, and it is encouraging to know  that the leading .educators- have set  themselves the task of finding out  what and where the trouble is, with  a view of applying the remedy,- if  proper remedy can be found.  That defects exist in our educational system has been apparent for some  time; but even the closest students  had not discerned the glaring deficiencies recently brought to light. What  is-the remedy? We do not know.  Certainly we are spending enough  money on education. Sometimes it  seems that Ave really are-spending too  much money on ��������� education: Probably  we are trying to do too much for the  child. Maybe it would be a good plan  to put the child more on his or her  own resources. Books are plentiful;  and they are cheap enough. There is  now no excuse for the failure of .any  boy or girl to secure an education if  they want it; and if they do not want  an education all the teachers of the  earth cannot cram it into their heads.  Individualism is a decadent virtue in  these days of a growing, tendency to  lean upon the state. It might be well  to attempt to revive it. The strongest  characters in history have been individualists in. the larger sense. Moses  would still have been Mioses without  Egyptian preceptors; and that.is true  of most of the great characters in history. Men and women who really want  an education will dig it out of the  ground, and it might be well for the  educational leaders of the country.to  consider the advisability of doing less,  instead of more for the boys and girls  who are in school.  that the sales for the day had reached,  $1,000,    and   that    no    more    large  amounts were to be sold to firms until  additional ones arrive.  While many freak articles were received yesterday, the hundreds of inquiries and stamp sales convinced the  officials that- by the end of the month  many tons of additional mail will be  sent through the office daily. As soon  as the office opened yesterday a line  of patrons appeared. The line gave  the office a holiday appearance until  late in the afternoon.  The express companies are finding  that the parcel post is cutting down  their businesses all kinds o,f articles  are being sent through, the parcel  post since it was opened. We read  these days in numerous places how  the now system is being used. Read  the following from an exchange:  Scoop shovels, cowbells, derby hats,  pot roasts, eggs, and hundreds of  other articles were sent through the  local office yesterday by parcels post  by a line of patrons who waited patiently that they might secure stamps  The Fraser Falley Publicity Bureau  should take   up   the   custom of letting the   secretary of the Vancouver  Board of Trade know that the "knock'-'  he gave the Fraser Valley the other  day was the kind that will not be permitted to go unchecked by the people  of the Fraser Valley.   Either Mr. Blair  is not, fit to represent the Board' of  Trade of Vancouver, or the attempt  to knock the county around Vancouver  was    premeditated.    "No '.good   land  within'one hundred miles of Vancouver-  fit for new settlers."    Guess Blair is  after notoriety, and has resorted to ex-  treme. measures-when the proper opportunity came.   Besides being a. slap  at the Valley it is asoa' slap-at the  city itself, as should an eastern paper  reprint the evidence as it appeared m  the Vancouver Province a very poor  opinion of Vancouver and its surroundings would be the result.

Business was quiet at the regular  weekly market this morning; rthe cold  'weather evidently having its effect.  The supplies were equal' to the demand, however, and prices remained  steady with a general tendency to  strengthen;  ���������  With the cold weather the price of  eggs shows signs'of an increase the  first jump being noticed this morning  when vendors demanded 55 and 60  cents.a dozen, an increase of five cents,  per dozen over .the price, last week:  The wholesale, price was unchanged,  .being 40 and -45 cents a dozen.. .  . In the poultry section also prices  showed a tendency.to increase. Some-  excellent -pullets sold for $15:00 per  dozen. Poultry;' live weight, was offered at 20 cents a pound,- and one  vendor asked 23 and 24' cents a pound  but few sales were made at the latter,  price.  In the .meat department .there was  an excellent showing and no change,  in the prices were quoted. Some  fine salt&l pork was sold for 18 cents  a pound retail, lard 17 cents, heifer  beef 18 cents,- pork 15 cents to 18 cents  beef 15 to 27 cents, mutton 17 to 20  cents.  There is little change in the vegetable department. The prices remain  unchanged and the demand shows no  sign of an increase. The potato market is a little improved with the price  remaining at $13'to $15 per ton.  The Prices.

III.���������We believe in large crops,  which leave the land better- than they  -found it; making'farmers and the farm  both; glad :at once.  IV.���������We believe in getting- to the  bottom of things,, and therefore in  deep ploughing, and enough of it; all  the better with a subsoil plough.  V.���������We believe -that - every farm  should own a good farmer.  VI.���������We believe that the best fertilizer for any soil is the spirit of industry,- enterprise; ' and intelligence.  Withoiut-this,- lime and gypsum, bones  and green manure, - mari and guano  will be of little use.  ��������� VII.���������We believe in good fences,  good farms, good farmhouses, good 'or*  chards, and children enough to, gather  the fruit.   .-  VIII.���������We believe in a clean kitchen,  a' neat wife in it, and a clear conscience.

Abbotsford is. certainly endowe'd  with its share of tlie "beautiful" this  year. The person who coined that  word "beautiful" in regard to .snow,  according to some of our worthy citizens' opinions, should be relegated to  a more congenial clime���������if not already there. Snow, in its place is extremely popular,, but the majority  seem..to think the proper place for it  is on the top of Mt. Baker.- But.then,  the "kidletts" enjoy' it, especially on  the big hill. Messrs. Clark and Bolton also appeared to be enjoying themselves on the same hill, much to the  amusement of their fellow citizens and  others.  This opportunity, is taken of extending to all our cus.  tamers our many thanks for past favors and  soliciting a continuance of same    .

The more we get in touch with the  farmer the more do we understand  that lie.is a fellow who knows how to  do things. . Take that parade of yesterday���������for downright uniqueness and  attractiveness it was a hummer, and  thoroughly representative of the entire enterprise that has brought the  farmer to the front as an entertainer  and educator of the city. There will  be more parades and more farmers  and bigger land shows and extended  education as the years pass." The  trend is that way. There is a growing  realization of the necessity of turning  to the land, but as we get in touch  with the farmer and the things he  does more and more the sense of necessity is changed into one of desirability. The entertaining function in  this city yesterday is representative  of a condition. In the broader economic .sense the farmer is getting on  parade. There is a demand to know  him and to know of the things he  achieves,     .   t  FRUIT  GROWERS'   MEETING  At a recent meeting of the B. C.  Fruit Growers held in Victoria, Mr. C.  W.
