But she may learn;   happier than this,

Happiest of all is, that her gentle spirit

O ! be sick, great greatness,
And bid thy ceremony give thee cure.
Think'st thou, the fiery fever will go out
With titles blown from adulation?
Will it give place to flexure and low bending?
Canst thou, when thou command'st the beggar's knee,
Command the health of it?    No, thou proud dream,
That play'st so subtly with a king's repose:
I am a king, that find thee;  and I know,
'Tis not the balm, the sceptre, and the ball,
The sword, the mace, the crown imperial,
The inter-tissued robe of gold and pearl,
The farced title running 'fore the king,
The throne he sits on, nor the tide of pomp
That beats upon the high shore of this world;
No, not all these, thrice gorgeous ceremony,
Not all these, laid in bed majestical,
Can sleep so soundly as the wretched slave,
Who, with a body filled, and vacant mind,
Gets him to rest, cramm'd with distressful bread.

On the first of June, in bright sunshine, we arrived at Boulogne. At noon we
assembled for lunch. In the evening John saw that nothing was lacking
and I slept well. Next day we did not go to the opera because the seats
were too dear. As we had no time to lose we went to see the Grands
Boulevards in the very heart of Paris. There we saw a house on fire and
firemen leaning ladders against the walls and climbing the rungs without
troubling about the flames that swept all before them, I awoke at half-past
eight next morning and set off for Versailles. We visited the favourite
residence of the unfortunate queen Marie Antoinette. Later I went to the
Jardin des Plantes and admired the great cedar tree. When Jussieu died
he did not think that the tree would live: it was to survive however many
successive generations and it will live a long time yet while we die around
it. A week later we visited the Eiffel Tower. From the top of this tower
we saw people walking and they looked like little ants. That evening the
dinner was very gay because Jean had passed his examination and carried
off a prize.

15 2. Another aspect presents itself. One is tempted to say that the most human plants,
after all, are the weeds. How they cling to man and follow him around the
world, and spring up wherever he sets his foot! How they crowd around his
barns and dwellings, and throng his garden and jostle and override each other in
their strife to be near him! Same of them are so domestic and familiar, and so
harmless withal, that one comes to regard them with positive affection. Motherwort, catnip, plantain, tansy, wild mustard—what a homely human look they
have! They are an integral part of every old homestead. Tour smart new place
will wait long before they draw near it. Our knot-grass, that carpets every old
door-yard, and fringes every walk, and softens every path that knows the feet
of children, or that leads to the spring, or to the garden, or to the barn, how
kindly one comes to look upon it! Examine it with a pocket glass and see how
wonderfully beautiful and exquisite are its tiny blossoms. It loves the human
foot, and when the path or the place is long disused other plants usurp the ground.

15 3. Rewrite the following paragraph so as to improve its coherence and emphasis:—
Charlotte Cushman loved fame, worshipped money, and was devoted to her art.
That she was a great artist has never been questioned. In private life she
was a charming woman. The moment she entered the theatre, either at
rehearsal or at a performance, her whole soul was wrapped up iu her art.
If she was somewhat miserly with money in general, she was extravagant in
her assistance and encouragement to those in whom she saw genius and talent.
Of Charlotte Cushman's greatness in some parts there is no question. Meg
Merrilies, Lady Macbeth, and Queen Catherine were her best parts. At
rehearsals she was ever kind and tender, never tiring in teaching those who
were lacking in experience or were suffering from stage fright.

50 Section A.
Sitting at breakfast in the morning, a man seldom reflects that for his
personal satisfaction the good and useful fruits of the earth and
products of labour have been gathered from every quarter of the globe.
Beside his plate, which has been made in Staffordshire, is a spoon from
the Oneida Community works in New York State and a knife and fork
from Sheffield, with handles of wood from Africa or horn from South
America. He sits on a chair made of wood from Northern Canada,
varnished with the resin of a tree in Burmah or Japan, dissolved in F 174 Public Schools Report. 1923
turpentine from the sea-pines of the Landes Department of France or
the swamp-pines of the Alabama. The seat is of cane from the Malay
peninsula. His table-cloth and napkin are from Belfast. He has tea
from China or Japan, coffee from Java or Brazil, bread from wheat
grown in the Canadian North-west, leavened with yeast from Germany.
He has canned salmon from British Columbia or canned rabbit from
Australia, sealed in tin from Wales. His breakfast is cooked with coal
from Pennsylvania, on a stove made of Indiana iron, and surmounted
with pipes of sheet iron from the penal colony of Siberia. His salt is
from Goderich, his pepper from Ceylon or South America, and his
sauce from Worcestershire. He has butter from a neighbouring farm,
perhaps coloured with annatto from Cayenne. His buns are made
more palatable by a few currants from Greece.
The commerce which enables a man to obtain for his own use the products
of all parts of the world must be complicated and wonderful. He may
be a carpenter or bricklayer, a physician, a lawyer, or a teacher; he
may work in a great factory feeding material to a machine which does
but one of many operations necessary to the making of some article
in common use. Yet for this single useful service, useful only as a help
to many others, he is able to secure the many and varied products of
the world's industries.
When it is remembered that the production of any one of the things
gathered at the breakfast table requires the aid of many hands,
trained in various lines of industry, and working in different climes
and continents, the truly complex nature of the' world's commerce
becomes apparent. Through this intricate commerce we live by
satisfying each other's wants. By following one line of industry and
becoming specially proficient, each is able to secure a share of the
products of all the others. To accomplish that end in a community
in which each is careful of his own property and jealous lest others
may obtain that which is his, is the aim of our trade and industry.
Every useful service rendered for reward, whether the building of a wall,
the cooking of a meal, the making of a shoe, the teaching of a lesson
in school, the navigation of a ship, or the digging of ore in the mine,
is a part of this complicated mechanism, having a relation to all the
other parts. Here is something marvellous with which we are surrounded, which we must touch at every turn, which has an influence
in settling all the practical questions of daily life, and which we should
study and seek to comprehend. The easiest road to an understanding
of our complicated industrial and commercial mechanism may be found
in the analysis of a single transaction, and for that purpose let us
select the purchase of a pair of boots in a city store.
Injecting Personality into an Organization.
Industrial organization has outgrown the one-man stage. Business is too
big, interests are too varied, one man cannot do or give enough to
contain a whole business in himself. The corporation—which signifies
the resources, the brains, the work of many men merged for one pur- 14 Geo. 5 Part III.—Appendices. F 175
pose—is now the business unit. When many men combine, their
individual personalities disappear.    The result is an impersonal body.
But just as personality is the vital spark in the man, so it is the active
force in a business—impersonality implies weakness. Therefore the
problem of the business man of to-day is to give a personality to the
great impersonal corporation of which he is chief.
Personality implies something human. The only source from which a
business can draw a personality is the human element in it, the men
who are carrying on its activities. The men in an industrial organization must make the business a part of themselves and themselves
an organic part of the business; they must put into their work their
own personalities.
Then the business will acquire a personality. This, then, is the problem
of the corporation chief: to make men feel that they are not simply
cogs of a great machine, their acts geared to the ponderous activity
of the whole; to make men realize that they have responsibilities, not
only as business getters and money makers but toward the public good
and toward their business associates—that their every act is adjudged;
to bring men to respect their profession not alone as a means for
acquiring wealth but as a life work and the work itself as its own
If men with these commercial ideals could be put behind the guns of a
business, that business would become a human active force, a personality.

Vancouver, B.C., June, 1923. Miss Olga Abelson, Nelson, B.C., Dear
Madam: When a woman is suddenly called upon to face the perplexities of financial matters with which she is, perhaps, unfamiliar,
a conservative banker is her safest counsellor. F 176 Public Schools Report. 1923
There are many unscrupulous promoters, who, with enticing words or
attractive advertisements, are offering bonds, stock, mortgages, and
investment ventures which are of questionable value and which should
not be considered without advice.
Your first consideration should be to place your money where the safety
of the principal is assured. You should also be able to exercise
control over the principal; that is, to convert it, or at least a part
of it, into cash with readiness, should occasion arise. Therefore, great
care should be exercised in choosing investments.
If you should want any information or advice regarding financial matters,
we would gladly give you the benefit of our knowledge and experience
whenever you care to consult us.   Yours very truly.
Vancouver, B.C., June, 1923. Messrs. Langdon and Greenman, 407 Pandora
Avenue, Victoria, B.C. Gentlemen: We have received your remittance
of $367.74 to apply on your July account. We have credited your
account for the above amount, together with discount due of $39.39,
making a total of $407.13. This leaves a balance of $214,31, according
to the figures shown on our July statement.
However, credit for the discrepancies brought to our attention some time
ago has been passed for $253.70. This credit, which will be shown
on your August statement, will more than take care of the balance
due on your July account.
We trust that there will be no further confusion in your account. Yours
Penmanship.     (Time, 1 hour.)
1. Write one page of General Movement Exercises, including the left oval, right oval, and drive-
and-return   (push-and-pull).   One-space and two-space exercises should be shown.   Use
your own judgment as to selection and arrangement.
2. Write one set of capital letters, one set of small letters, and two sets of figures.
3. Write a brief business letter ordering goods from a local firm.
4. Write the following addresses as you would write them on business envelopes :—
C. J. Brown and Company, Prince Rupert, B.C.
Messrs. Evans and Manning, 458 Broad Street, Victoria, B.C.
Miss D. K. Mitchell, Fernie, B.C.
Rev. O. S. Paul, 156 Ninth Street, New Westminster, B.C.
5. Make one copy of the following:—
Why Try to become a Good Penman?
The first reason we shall give is this: We use our pens to express our thoughts in a
social or in a business way, and we owe it to the people who read our letters that
our writing should be legible and pleasing in appearance. This is surely just as
important as it is to " say " it nicely if we were talking instead of writing to them.
We should feel very much humbled indeed if we made mistakes in Grammar or in
Spelling, and surely it is just as important that our writing should be good.
Again, it is a great satisfaction to be able to write rapidly and well, and not feel that
we have to apologize for our writing. To be a poor penman is no evidence at all of
greatness, but is one of the greatest handicaps a young person can have. 14 Geo. 5 Part III.—Appendices. F 177
Perhaps the most important of all reasons, and the one that may appeal to you the most,
is the fact that, other things being equal, the young man or young woman who makes
the most rapid advancement in the business world of to-day is the good penman.
Heads of business firms, department stores, banks, telegraph companies, etc., all tell
us over and over again that they reject many applicants merely on account of their
poor handwriting and that good writers receive rapid promotion.
I think we shall agree then that it is worth while to make an effort to bring our penmanship up to a high standard, for no matter what our vocation in life, it will be one of
our strongest assets.

enclosing a cheque for $200,   (20)  payable at the Century Trust Company, to
retire your note due December 28.
The note will be returned to  (40)  y°u as soon as we receive it from the bank.
This will be on December 28 or the following (60) day.
We thank you for taking care of this item so promptly and hope to receive another
large order soon (80)-   Tours very truly.
Rate, 90 per minute.
14 2. To Patrons: At the close of my third year in business I am glad to announce that
its success has warranted the (22) enlarging of my office. This will give my
patrons more private as well as more spacious accommodation.
I have added a very good (45) selection of old English Silver, which has just been
received from London.
Personal attention will be given to the matching of pearls  (67)  f°r necklaces.
Folders describing combination of precious stones and the newest effects in jewellery
will be submitted gladly upon request.    Very truly yours (90)-
Rate, 100 per minute.
16 3. Dear Madam: We have received the waist you returned to us for credit and regret
exceedingly that we are compelled to send it back to (25) y°u. Our records
show that this waist was purchased September 25. As it has been out of our
establishment for six weeks, it cannot (50) be accepted, for it is one of our
rules that merchandise must be returned for either credit or exchange within
ten days from the date (75) of purchase. We are sure that you will see the
necessity for a rule of this kind.
Your further orders will be received with pleasure  (100).   Very truly yours.
Rate, 11.0 per minute. .
18 4. Dear Sir: Referring to claim No. 6M5L and the attachments, I call your attention
to the fact'that the shipments in question were covered (27) by one bill of
lading, and that the weight shown on this claim was an overflow on the remaining
shipment and should therefore be forwarded at carload rate (55) all(l actual,
12 F 178 Public Schools Report. 1923
I think that if you will review the facts in this case you will agree that your company
should assume its proportion on the (82) actual weight of 16,880 pounds. The
amount due from your company on that basis is $4.07, as shown. Will you please
approve a (HO) claim for that amount?   Yours truly.
Rate, 120 per minute.
20 5. Dear Sir: Our shipping department will remain closed from December 31 to January
5 for our annual stock-taking. We will, however, be able to fill a few rush
orders (30) on January 4.
Please do not overlook the fact that January is one of the best music-roll months
of the year. Many people stay at home and use their player (60) pianos during
the winter. Moreover, the Christmas season always introduces a large number
of these instruments into homes, and people who have recently acquired player
pianos are very likely (90) to be good customers for music rolls.
Your stock is probably very low. Between Christmas and New Year's is a good time
to prepare a stock order for shipment early (120) 'n January. Very truly
Rate, 130 per minute.
20 6. Dear Mr. Coleman: Recently I had the pleasure of inspecting the fine trees on your
estate at Brentwood.
I was particularly interested in the Oak directly west of the Mansion. This tree
(32) is in a vel"y serious condition, so serious in fact that there is grave doubt
whether it can be saved at all. I made a very careful study of its condition and
believe (65) 1 can make some suggestions that may save it for you. I expect
to be at Brentwood again within a week or so, and if it is your pleasure will
explain in (97) detail just what should be done.
There will be no charge for any service I may render, nor will it place you under any
obligation to the Tree Surgery Company.    Very truly yours   (130)-
