The "caem" w hlch roine before the chief
of the professions grow more painful every
day, and it has become a truism to say that
of all who stjrt on professional careers one
third "go under" that is, grt sick, die or
emigrate one-third barely survive hunting
on, without a tani of retiring, to old age,
and one-third make a decent or comfortable
living. That is Jmt the proportion given by
the learned Oernian, and we fear the num
bers of the first class are far from having
reached their limit.
The rush caused by the enormously in
creased numbers of the educated has hardly
begun, and there are otlier causes. The de
sire for "a life in which ability tells" is In
creasing even faster than education, and so is
the hid imposition to lead the kind of life, no
douU a moKt painful one, which "business"
with insufficient capital involves. Caste
feeling, whk-h always feeds the professions,
grows stronger than ever in certain sections
of the community; while, owing at once to
the greater accumulation and diffusion of
wealth, there is new prewure into the
ranks of young men with small fixed Incomes,
the class which looks on its gains from work
aa supplementary, and whk-h all over the
continent keeps down the salaries of profes
sionals. Them men all think that they rise
in life by entering the close professions. The
price of partnerships is for the same reason
rising, while, owing to the habit of postpon
ing retirements, vacancies grow constantly
fewer; and the system of Jobbing in favor of
close relatives is, outside the service of the
state, more inveterate than ever. Men de
scend to anything for the sake of sons-in-law.
The prizes, too, grow less. Democracy
hates larpe salaries and thinks all salaries
large, while, though the close professions
make desperate efforts to keep nptbeir stand
ard of remuneration, it is declining in every
direction. The ordinary "professional man"
must either take less or see his connection
gradually slip away.
This diiniuihed chance, moreover, la not

of life. Thut increases every year with the
Increased number of competitors, and with
the incessant rise in the standard of necessary
acquirement, till it is now asserted that hard

an Interruption of aiz months from any
