A college ednci'on is not a good
brcad.winner, nufortnuately. Our
colleges do not, like the French and
German universities, instruct a
youtg man in the breadwinolnog
pursuits; the American colleges are,
on the contrary, institutions for gen
oral culture. The point for us to
note is that the eduoated young
Americau who bu not a special ed.
uation as a bread.wioer Is worse
oO, as to bis mosey prepeeta, than
the young American who has no
college education at all. Dig be
cannot, oand to beg he Is slamed.

lproflisioan of law. In both prutes
