MADE FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON.

had little of that sort of thing. Hor
ace Greeley's New York Tribune
came once a week and that Rave us

outside world; but there was little of
the frivolous In that.
The conditions of that life were
primitive. . Why, In the town where
we lived there wbh not a house that
had a carpet on the floor until nfter
f waa 18 years of ae; and that first
carpet when It came was a three-ply
rag carpet of the kind that would
fade. All tbe reserve currency In the
community. If gathered in a pot and
melted up, would not have been

is worn by the wife of one of our dis

to remain what, and where they are.
To go back would mean giving up the
many things which have come to
make our lives happy imd which have
caused our small wisdom to Increase.
We would have to give It all up;

This Is a wonderful time this In
which we live. It Is a time of much
to each. The man any man who
puts forth muscle effort, crossed with
Intelligence, gets more for the same
today than e.ver before In the his
tory of the world. That is the real
test, the real measure of value not
the dollar, not the coin, but muscle
effort crossed with Intelligence. Sixty
years ago there was not In the coun
try or on the continent the multitude
and abundance of material things;
and a man's expenditure of his muscle
effort brought slender returns. To
day, see what the poorest may have;
see what muscle effort, with the
smallest attendant amout, of Intelli
gence, will bring. It Is not so much
what another has. It Is what the in
dividual may have as a result of his
efforts. That Is the meaning of op
portunity. That Is the wealth of our
time and country. That Is what makes
tbis a Christmas season of abundance.

been successfully maintained for gen
Education the Secret.
I have made a somewhat careful
t study of fSermany'8 economic success,
land I have become firmly convinced
that the explanation of the remark
able progress there Is to be traced,
in the most direct manner, to the
German system of education. Tho
schoolmaster Is the great cornerstone
of Germany's remarkable commercial
and industrial progress. The school
system of Germany bears a relation
to the economic situation that is not
met with in any other country.
We all know something of tne thor
ough secondary education which the
laws of Germany Insist should be
given to every youth under 14 ywirs
of age. We all know something of
the high standing of her universities
and the great practical value of her
technical schools. There is another
feature of the German educational
system, however, alsnit which less
is known in this country, but I be
lieve it Is a feature which Is one of
the most direct and important In
shaping Germany's Industrial pro
gress. There is a division of instruction
known as the continuation trade
schools. These schools are designed
for the instruction of youths engaged
in regular Industrial employment.
They are auxiliary to the regular
school system and entirely outside of
the scheme for regular academic
training or of the higher technical In
struction. They are for the rank
and file of workers. The courses sup
same time, supplement technical rout
ine of the shop anil olhce.
The Trade Shcools.
The courses fall outside of the
hours of labor. The curriculum is
broadly practical. It Includes the sci
ence of each particular trade Its
mat hemat ics or chemistry for in
stance and Its technology. But it
does not stop there. Principles of
wise business management, are taught.
The aim Is to prepare a student for
the practical conduct of a business.
He gains knowledge of production,
and consumption, of markets and of
the cause of price fluctuations. He
is put Into a position to acquire an
ItiHight into concrete business rela
tions, and into trade practices und
conditions. Are not those aims
worthy of our schools? What truer
democracy can there be than to have
a school system that will point the
way to every worker, no matter how
humble, by which he may rise to a
position of Importance in the Indus
try in which he is engaged?
To do all this does not mean the
"commercializing" of our educational
Btates. There is no need for oppo
sition even from those who hold that
it is not the place of the schools to
teach youths how to earn a livelihood.
Such an ' auxiliary system of trade
schools would be available for the
youth after he had left the direct In
fluences of our present school sys
tem. Thero are in the United States
1ti.lMHi.iMM) of population between th
ages of 13 and 20 years. Three
quarters of that number are not in
attendance at any school.
What un unreekonahlc advantage It
would be if a substantial proportion
of that seven and one-half millions
were to bo brought within the influ
ence of a new and entirely practical
