A. The quality of the roads in many parts of Canada leaves much to be desired.    Yet
great improvements have been made in recent years. The various provincial
governments have made large grants for this purpose to the municipalities.
The Dominion government now for some years has given financial aid to the
provinces in the building of roads. More money, better methods, and expert
supervision have wrought wonders. The old narrow dirt track, climbing up
hill and down, mucky with clay in wet weather, thick with dust in dry, has
been widely replaced by the broad, well-drained highway of easy grades and
clean, smooth, firm surface.
B. The spectacle of a total eclipse of the sun is one of the most magnificent and imposing
that it is possible to see in nature. At the exact moment indicated by calculation, the moon arrives in front of the sun. It eats into it gradually, and at
last entirely covers it. The light of day lessens and is transformed. A sense
of oppression is felt by all nature, the birds are hushed, dogs take refuge with
their masters. The wind drops, the temperature falls, an appalling stillness is
everywhere perceptible. It seems as though the universe were on the verge of
some imminent catastrophe.
C. (1.) Too much praise is not wholesome.
(2.) The stalks of celery are crisp.
(3.) O King, live for ever !
(4.) The story is wholly false.

" The style of Bunyan is delightful to every reader, and invaluable as a study to
every person who wishes to obtain a wide command over the English
language. The vocabulary is the vocabulary of the common people. There
is not an expression, if we except a few technical terms of Theology, which
would puzzle the rudest peasant. We have observed several pages which do
not contain a single word of more than two syllables. Yet no writer has
said more exactly what he meant to say. For magnificence, for pathos, for
vehement exhortation, for subtle disquisition, for every purpose of the poet,
the orator, and the divine, this homely dialect, the dialect of plain working-
men, was perfectly sufficient. There is no book in our literature on which we
could so readily stake the fame of the old unpolluted English language; no
book which shows so well how rich that language is in its own proper wealth,
and how little it has been improved by all that it has borrowed."
