These are mere excuses to cover up their own deftcieuces, lack of initiative)  and energy. Those who make such excuses are invariably of the type who  are quite unwilling to endure the hardships and perform the long and arduous  work, which was inseparable front the early years of the men-of a few generations ago who laid the foundation for the-'great-successes'of which these  youthful pessimists of today are envious.  The truth is that in no previous era in the world's history: were there  as many and as promising opportunities for young, men and women as are  presented, to them.; toda>\ The trouble is that, too often, the youth of today  wants the pleasures and. luxuries of success without being willing to first tinder-  go the sacrifices and self-denials through which success can be won. They are  impatient oi The day of small things, of the slow but gradual building-up process. They demand the impossible,���������-immediate success without effort and  arduous labor. ���������*���������  For the earnest, painstaking worker,: possessed..of..initiative and courage,  the present is indeed an age of golden opportunities. Present day business  fairly teems with examples-of astounding successes achieved within the short  c-pai*p,.of a few years. Just to mention one such, example. It is only twenty-five  years since the now well known Gillette Safety Razor Co. was formed with the  Insignificant capital of thirty dollars. Today its paid-up capital stock has;a  market value of two hundred million dollars. The 51 razors sold in 1903 have  grown-to a total of 14.S62.0&8 in 1925, while the sale of a mere 14 packets of  blades in 1903 increased to G2,SS3,533 packets in 1925. The Company has paid  cash dividends aggregating $3fc,497,691. What a romance in business in this  present century! - *  The automobile within the same space of time has revolutionized our  modes of living, has created scores of multi-millionaires and made Henry  Ford, the world's-wealthiest individual. "Within the last half dozen years the  radio has come into practical use opening new fields- of employment and advancement and wealth for-hundreds and thousands of wide-awake enterprising  men.      - '���������'* -,s. ��������� ���������  How can anyone think, much less declare, that the day of great opportunities is past and gone? Great as have been the discoveries and developments of  the past, the present is even more prolific and promising; the opportunities  are vastly greater. The youth of today is, let it be emphasized, living in a  golden age of opportunity with possibilities open to him unsurpassed,, undreamed of, a couple of generations ago.  Not only so, but the world today is not so skeptical of new ideas and inventions, and the man with an innovation gets  a hearing and a chance to  demonstrate his plans, where in former years he had to do battle against prejudices and an ultra-conservatism which found expression in open and bitter,  opposition. . _  Where not so long ago a young man without position or money had a long,  bitter, uphill fight to obtain recognition, today he is given every chance to  make good, and if he fails the fault lies largely with himself, or the impracticability of his ideas, and. not in the reception accorded him by an eager and  progressive world. He is not denied his opportunity to make good; the great  difficulty is that so "many do not see, or, seeing, fail to grasp the opportunity at  their hand.  There are still undeveloped fields oC endeaVOr^awaitlng ambitious youth  just as great with promise as wore the unknown spaces of the United States  in the first half of the nineteenth century, or in -Canada in the years when the  Fathers of Confederation dreamed their practical dream of a Dominion stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific and.the pioneers first began the task of  developing the prairies ol' the West.

THE' TIREIf OUT WAifAN  Needs the Help of Dr. Williams'  Pink JH-ills to Regain Strength  No mother should allow V nervous  .weakness .to get the upper fiand of  her; if she does worry will mar her  work in the home, and torment her in  mind and body. The monotony of the  average housewife's daily toil is  enough to cause depression, but there  are other causes, as every mother  knows,^ that--tend "to weaken and make  her "nerves run-down. A change and  rest might improve her health, but  best ol' all for jaded women is a course  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.' These  pills make new blood, rich with the  elements on which the body and  nerves thrive.  The value of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.when the blood is weak and  watery, and the system run-down is'  shown by the experience of Mrs. C.  W. Jackson, R.R. 1, Gilford, Ont., who  says:���������"Before beginning the use of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills I was completely run-down and could hardly  walk across the floor. As the mother  ol'-young children with the usuaj  household duties to perform, my condition was ono of seriousness. I had  soon Dr. Williams' Pink Pills advertised and. decided to try "them. This  was a happy decision as I had not  been taking the pills very long before  I began to feel bettor both in body  and in -mind: I continued tho use of  the pills for a couple of months and  now feel like a new woman, able to  perform all my household duties. I  would not be without tho pills in the  house and I recommend them to all  run-down people."

FRLDAY; JAN. 14  Looking After Creston  "Creston has advantages- and  these must be safeguarded*" Briefly stated these are the instructions  given Messrs. Constable and Littlejohn at a meeting of the Valley  orohardisfcs oil Saturday afternoon,  at which the -gentlemen mentioned  were officially chosen as the dele  gates-to the annual meet in |5 of the  ^British Colombia Fruitgrowers  Association which is being held at  Kelowna this week, and at which it  is expected recommendations will  be- framed and passed on to the government at Victoria, and which are  likely to play some part in the  drafting of the proposed compulsory co-operation, fixed selling price  or clearinghouse legislation that is  hoped to put thefruit industry on  a more profitable basis.  Everyone will agree that a very  satisfactory bit of work war done  by the meeti-ag, and equally pleasing will be &he knowledgo that the  half hundred growers ass.tabled  were quite unanimous in endorsing  the sentiment, but it is to be hoped  that this will raoi be the only move  made ia the matter.  The information reaching the  Beview would indicate that when  the new fruit policy is brouf**Th&  down in the legislature the intention Is for the minister of agriculture to submit a skeleton bill, and  tiona (along with specific information ,as to What these advantages  consist of) to Col. Fred Lister  whose advocacy of Creston's pass*  t.issrwili mean so much'in actually  safeguarding these advantages  -���������?h3si the new marketing policy is  crystallized into a legal enactment.  We take it that on the two delegates' re&-arsa smother meeting will  be.lield afc which a report will be  made, as to what actually-transpired, and more particularly as to the  exact nature of the recommendations sent on from *he meeting for  the guidance of the legislative  roesnbers i��������� their work of ores tins  effective fruit marketing regulations.  When the delegates report- as to propes-id land  * -The situation is probably little1'  different to day, and the industry  therefore ������e ecohoiaic only in' spots,*  With Independent-      Shippers  doubtless having most of the~ spots.  l$~o'possible measure of co operation  or legislation can place the industry  as a   whole on an economic basis.

In Yakima  for example miscellaneous varieties  were 7.1 percent, of the  whole in  1921; in 1025 the   percentage was  reduced to 2.6.

Overawed hy tne" magnitude  of their problem and without  outstanding leadership, their policy*  is brie of simple perpetuation.  Whatever can be done to put.  iron into the sob! ��������� of":the growers  and bring the Associated iSxecutiVe  and economic facts into a head on  collision will mark real progress.

"vTlthout having specific in forma  fcion along this Hue presented to  the legislative representative Cre<a  Sion must not complain if her best  interests are not given due consideration.

If this is the way this all important measure is to be brought into  being it ia at once apparent that  OoL Fred Lister, the local member,  will he expected to take a. prominent part in fashioning the bill,  being the representative of one of  the few constituencies in the province that is given over almost com-:  pletely to fruit growing.  Although resident in the Valley  for almost eight years and possessed of a working knowledge of the  fruit industry and its needs, Ores-  ton must not overlook the fact th t  part of the constituency Col. Lister  represents may not be of the opin  ion that Creston has advantages  that must be safeguarded and, consequently, if the local member is to  be counted upon to see that these  advantages aro looked after, it is  only fair that our representative  should have his attention drawn to  them in some effective manner1.  If it is believed essential to the  prosperity of horticulture in Creston Volley to give delegates to a  growers meeting very definite instructions to safeguard the local  advantages Creafcon orchardist8  enjoy, laaw much more important  must it be to give  similar instruo  to  in  auditor Vernon Ne.ws8 Sir3���������-  "Although a noa subscriber  your paper, will you permit,  view of the importance of the subject, some small space for comment  on articles appearing in your issue  of the 10th inst.  An article quotes a resolution put  forward by the Associated Growers  urging compuisory co-operation,  their denial to the contrary nob  withstanding. In the same issue  Mr. Kidston analyses the primary  difficulty in the fruit industry as  being   that   the    world    produces  rV - * ��������� *- -  more apples than the world will  buy at remu nerative prices. Apples  being no longer Just apples, may I  suggest that a more correct' analysis would be that more apples of  certain varieties are being produced  than can be sold at remunerate;  pk-ioes, competing as they do with  other varieties and similar food  commodities, which improved transportation has placed at the door  of the consumer.  A recent survey o! eight fruit  exchanges in Western Biliohigan  over a five year period, in , whioh  waa one year of exceptionally high  prices and two years oF equally low  prices, showed they had packed  133 varieties, of which only 14  ������howed a profit. In 1923 the  Associated Growers admitted to  packing* out 153 varieties^, eighty-  four per cent of which had to be  marketed   before   Dedember   31st,  fruit grower, have perpetuated our  deficiencies, and the proposed compulsory cooperation can only he  one more step in that^direotion.  It is easy to agree with Mr.  Kidston *that the Associated is  consistently a bear influence, so  also the vast majority of their one  hundred and fifty-three varieties.

AH the pupil has to do is to  iudicate his opinion.- - Another example is the type where a sentenct - is  given in which certain important  wosds are omitted for the pupil to fill  in. Only one word or its synonym  will complete the ^sentence truthfully.  In both/these examples th-a student  could mark the paper on being given  the key, equally as -well as the teacher  or examiner. There is no doubt that  these two examples can be made to  measure the pupil equally as well as  the.older type and the marking is infinitely more fair to the pupil. This typi*  of test Is known as "ob-jective." Tho  mark is entirely-objective and depends  upon no one's, personal opinion";. Here  you have a definite measuring stick of  ���������d constant and fixed length.  The Recommendations of the Survey  . /There are no specific, recomrnenda-  tions by tho survey advising the use  of objective tests but there is every  reason to suppose that th6*y assume  their use. The teste are being used  extensively and to great advantage  in a great''many school subjects... I  have devoted this section to them for  tho reason that I am loading up to the  discussion of the Middle school and  tests of this Bort aro one of the primary essentials of that school.  The survey advocates the abolition  of the Grade 8 and the Matriculation  examinations. The former will automatically disappear with the institution of the ��������� Middle school. Entrance  to that school will be based more upon  the period of natural development of  the child than upon the progress in  studies. When a child reaches the  adolescent period he enters the Middle  school without examinations.  The latter or Matriculation examination now follows three1 year high  school course. The substitute for this  is to bo tho accredited high school.  Schools that eAn, reaoh a certain  standard In teaching staff, In equipment, in results will havo the power  to recommend pupils for graduation  certificates. Any examinations that  aro given are to beset and marked by  tho..staff of tho school. This might  not apply to schoola having a staff of  lcso than 4 or 5 teachers. It Is pre-  sumod that tho examinations will bo  objective us far aa . possible, for only  by adopting tiiiu iyyu u������ toel can th*>.  pupil bo said to bo accurately and  fairly measured.

When her .car drew up at the skyscraper Brandon was waiting. He  climbed in beside her, paid, his compliments, and the cabriolet .sped towa-rc.  the Avenue. Brandon caught one of  tier hands and gave it a gentle pressure.  "Do you know," he said, "you. were  very nice to me, last night.

You^ would do better to depend  upon���������shall I say the "obvious thing?���������  me!"  She turned* and looked at hinv- deliberately."
