A The Methods That Are Used In the Schools of Germany. CLASS ROOMS AS OFFICES. The Pupils Are Divided Into Firms That Carry on an Imaginary Trade With Each Other—The Course From Office Boy to Director. No one will deny the fact that Ger mans are among the keenest business men in the world. And undoubtedly one of the secrets of their success lies In the fact that in German schools boys are taught the practical details of business. The writer recently re turned from Hamburg after a year's course of education, and an outline of the system of training boys in business may be interest lug. On my first day's attendance I was bnnded a time table on which appear ed, set out in formidable array, such subjects as commercial correspond ence, laws of bills of exchange, cur rency, political economy and commer cial law, none of which at the time conveyed much to me and raised seri ous doubts in my mind as to whether I should be able to understand and ap preciate what appeared to be most abstruse subjects.

"In X" he said, "I had to use all the papers to reach fewer people than with one here. The Tribune goes everywhere and reaches everybody. By telling all these people about my goods I have doubled my business in two years." Ask to see the new "Marathon" shirt It's a winner. The "Clever Clothes Shop" S. E. BEIRGESON & SON the-coiirs"e"began, "prefaced"by -uncou ple of hours' hard study, for the Ger mans are gluttons to work and think nothing of a twelve hour day. The first course was called "business train ing." We worked In two spacious rooms furnished as offices, each room representing a different business house. These two firms carried on an Imagi nary trade with each other, and the routine adhered to was modeled exact ly on the lines of a first class business establishment. Each firm had a director, and these two were the most eminent students in the academy. They had subject to their management and control a com plete staff of correspondents, short hand writers, typists, bookkeepers, etc. The whole was supervised by a mas ter, to whom reference was made in case of dispute or difficulty. On making my appearance I was in formed that my services were in re quest as an office boy. I was some what taken back, not to say a little humiliated, by the lowly position as signed to me. and I gave the master to understand that I considered I was qualified to occupy a much better post than that which he had chosen for me. He did not seem in the least perturbed by my remarks, but said: "You have already made a mistake—a mistake of diplomacy. One of the great maxims of business as taught here Is to do what you are told, to do it at once and do it well." With that he handed me a pile of envelopes and a long list of addresses and told me to set to work addressing them. I did so, but not with a very good grace, the master coming round from time to time to inspect my work For two "solid hours I plodded on until 11 a. m., when the course came to an end. Then I took the opportunity of going up to the master again and ask ing him If he did not really think 1 had been wasting my time in what I had been doing. "Not in the least," said he. "In everything, no matter how simple or how difficult, there is always a good deal to learn. If you have paid atten tion while you were working you will have learned something about the ge ography of the German empire, for each address contains the name of some important town and province in which it is situated and the name of some Arm celebrated for some particu lar class of goods." This gave me food for reflection. As a matter of fact, I had not paid the least attention to what 'I had been writing consequently I had failed to derive the benefit which it was the master's intention I should obtain from what seemed to me at the outset a most senseless tast On the following day I resolved to follow out the mas ter's instructions to the letter, and I was surprised to find how interesting the work became. I continued addressing envelopes for two hours a day for a whole week, and the next week I received promotion. In this way I w-ent through the whole routine, from office boy to director, and the experience which I obtained in the various capacities has proved invaluable to me in business. As director 1 had to sign checks, dic tate letters, enter into agreements with the other firm with reference to the sale and purchase of goods, keep an eye on the money market, work out ar bitrage calculations, draw up and In dorse bills of exchange and bills of lading, make out periodical statements of affairs, allow or dispute amounts placed to the debit of the firm on ac count of general average' losses and generally supervise everything. While we were thus drilled in practi cal work the theoretical side of busi ness was not neglected. Lectures were given at fixed hours, bookkeeping and mercantile law. Thus we enjoyed the inestimable advantage of acquiring the theory and practice of business at the same time.—Detroit Free Press. In Bad. "I'll never offer any more friendly advice."

"garbler," are words whlcb nowadays convey quite a different meaning from that whlcb was formerly accepted. "Garble" orig inally signified simply "to select for a purpose." At one time there was an officer, termed "the garbler of spices," whose duty it was to visit the shops and examine the spices, ordering the destruction of ail impure goods. His duties were similar to those of the in spector of tbe modern health depart ment, who forbids the sale of decayed vegetables or tainted meat. The word comes from a root meaning "to sift." The impurities sifted out have in tbe course of generations corrupted tbe term till a "garbled report" is no long er a report wlierefrom all uncertainty bas been removed, but one that is full of misrepresentation and made mis leading with deliberate intent.

An Incident of the War Between Greece and Turkey. A YOUNG OFFICER'S DARING. The Turk'e Pluok and 8trategy Re sulted In Making a Powerful Greek Vessel a Helpless Prisoner Within the Landlocked Water* of Arte. It was during the war between Greece and Turkey in 1897 that tbe Inhabitants of Gala Krinl—a large vil age, since destroyed by tbe Turks, on the shores of the gulf of Arta—awoke one morning to find that a Hellenic battleship had entered the gulf and cast anchor off the shore. The sur prise of the Inhabitants of Gala Krinl was nothing compared with that of a party of five Turkish officers, who, fresh from the crest of a hill towering above the village, watched the vessel through their telescopes. These Turkish officers were on an urgent and important mission to* block out the Hellenic fleet from the gulf of Arta. Behind them,.at the bottom of the deep ravine, were a number of heavy guns which had been dragged all the way from Saloniki, a long and difficult task, and with this artillery they had been ordered to for tify the strait. To reach the* strait, however, the Turkish column had to run the gantlet of the battleship's heavy guns, which meant sheer destruction. Somehow or other they must escape the man-of war or prevent her interference with their work, but to do this seemed im possible. In the midst of their discussion a young officer who had been listening said he could hold the vessel a prison er if they Would allow him. His plead ing won, and, hurriedly changing his clothes for those of a shepherd, he de scended in that disguise to Gala Krlni. Late that night a number of figures stole through the dark alleys of the village toward the shore. Close to the water's edge was an old boathouse, used as a shed for repairing boats. This the party silently entered and by the flickering light of a taper search ed the black interior. At length there was a gentle rattle and from the gloom emerged Hassan, stripped to the waist, dragging a heavy chain. This, with the help of his comrades, he began to pull, and after an hour's laborious work the end of the great chain-«-once the cable of a Turkish vessel—was reached. From the beach the chain was load ed on board a large caique, whose sides and floor had been covered with cloth to deaden the sound. This task accomplished, three men got in with Hassan and rowed with muffled oars toward a large rock in the middle of the bight. Bound this rock the cliain was laid and securely fastened. One man having been landed on the crag to keep guard over this end, the boat set out cautiously for the battleship, looming like a phantom in the dis tance. Not a sound did the men make as link .by. !iu! f1"' "Newbro's Herpicide is certainly the best 'remedy for dandruff and itch ing scalp I ever used.

There was an excited gleam in Has san's eyes as. with a sign to his com rades, he gradually lowered himself Into the dark water, guiding himself by passing his fingers ove**the battle ship's plates. A slight grating of the chain against the hull was all that his anxious companions in the boat heard, though now and then a reassuring pull was felt on the line that Hassan held, directing them how to pay out the chain. Hours rather than minutes seemed to have gone by ere the young officer camp to the surface. So ex hausted by his long dive was he that he had to be almost lifted into the boar. "It is round the |»iopeller."Jie gasp ed. "I have fixed it so that nothing can move it. Back you go." Tueu link by link the tedious work was renewed until the boat returned to its starting point, where the other end of the chain was secured. The risky task was done, and the Hellenic battleship was securely moored to an Immovable rock by a double thickness of cable. The early rays of dawn revealed a sight which astonished the Greek com mander. A whole regiment of Turks were on the march toward the strait of Arta. with train after train of artil lery, the last of which disappeared be yond the intervening head before the ship's guns could be brought to bear on them. The commander gave orders for the guns to be run out and decks cleared for action, while the anchor was weighed, his intention being to prevent the Turks from fortifying the strait before they had become too strong. "Full speed ahead!" went the order to the engine room, and, pro pelled by her mighty screw, the bat :!J^sjHji..ady^!^c^_Qiil^to_IJl^^^ Saturday, June 18,1910.

Burglar's Besetting Sin. The burglar's besetting sin is heed lessness. The chances are that it was heedlessness that first drove him out of honest employment and made a bur glar of him.
