Berlin, Oct. 14. No country
does so mucu for the education
of its peoplo as Germany. The
common schools are not only in
reach of the poorest, but the tu
ition is free and attendance is
cumpulsory in childhood. Hence
ignorauco Is a crime and illitcra
tes are no moro numerous than
criminals. Having passed
through the common schools,
tho young men and women of the
country havo an opportunity to
qualify themselves by special
training lor auy one of the ninety
and nino occupations. In the
university every branch of
science is taught, and every path
of learning, as far as the anibi
tion of the btudont prompts him
to go, may bo followed. For
those who prefer or whose cir
cumstances requiro thorn to
engage in commercial, mechani
cal or ngricultu ral lines, thoro at c
schools of training for tho hands
as well as the minds for any de
partmont of human activity.
There are schools for farmers,
yurdi ors. florists, fruitgrowers,
forcubinot makers, bookkeepers,
foresters, blacksmiths, carpen
ters, machinists, tailors, shoe
makers, druinrists: thero aro
cooking bchools and institutes
for training for training servunt
girls, barbers and chiropodists.
You can ti rid a school in Germa
ny for Vouching anything you
want to know; and it is usually
supported by tho government
and froo to all comers, or per
haps only li nominal tuition Is
charged. There is no reason
whv anv person in this great
empire should bo ignorant of
tho duties pertaining to the po
sition ho is required to occupy.
