Kducation Factor ia Promotina
Industrial Power-Tbe United States
and Karope Contracted College
Training Ia a Check to Matrimony.
Kducation and Advancement.
In the North American Hevlew Mr.
Mulball has a valuable article compar
ing the relative industrial power of the
people of the United States with that
of Europeans. Ills points are not en
tirely new, but derive new force from
being put lu new form. Our great
source of ponitlve as well as relative In
crease in Industrial power has taken
the three forma of hand power, horse
power and ttteam power, which he
states in foot tons, a foot-ton being the
power to lift a ton a foot Tbe working
power of an able bodied male adult la
300 foot ions daily, that of a horse
3,(XM, and that of steam horse power
According to Mr. Mulball, the aver
age Industrial power of an American
worklug with the means then eiistiug
was, lu lS'.U, 44d foot-tons dally; lu
1S40, 1,0'JO foot-totia daily; In 1WX),
1,240; In SIMS, 1,545, and lu 18Xj, MV.
In the present year the average Ameri
can's physical prowess or productive
energy, m-nsured In connection with
all the resources of mechanical aud
chemical power he controls, Is nearly
five times as great as that of the aver
age American In 1820. Our productive
power for each Inhabitant has doubled
since 1814, and our aggregate working
power as a whole nation has tripled
since 1810. Of this Increase in work
ing power 1-123 is due to Increased
numbers, r5-12.'l to horse power and
07-123 to steam power.
More than three-fourths of the steam
power of the Union Is employed In
transportation, the United States hav
ing double the "amount" (In weight,
we presume) of all the other nations of
the earth collectively. In working en
erev. measured In foot-tons for each
Inhabitant a day, the United States
measures 1.040: Great Britain, 1,470;
Germany, 002; France, 010; Austria,
5ti0: Italy, 380, and Spain, 1590.
The close correspondence between In
dustrial power per capita and the pop
ular conception of the military power
and political Influence of these nations
win occur to every person, notwitn
standing some of these nations main
tain large military establishments and
othera almost none. The relative num
ber of hands employed In agriculture
in these various countries will surprise
many In the fact that Germany employs
about as many persons as the United
States and Austria many more. They

Grain, Meat,

.... 6,400,000
"A farm band In the United States,"
aays Mr. Mulball, "raises as much
grain as three In England, four In
France, five In Germany or six In Aus
tria, which shows what an enormous
waste of labor occurs In Europe, be
cause farmers are not supplied with tbe
same mechanical appliances as in tbe
United States."
Reducing all farm products to a com
mon denominator, wheat, tbe account of
grain In bushels for each band would
stand thus:
United States.. .475
Germany 118
Italy 115
Austria 97
Great Britain.. .228
France 188
The census of 1800 showed that 87
per cent of the total population of
America could read aud write. Mr.
Mulhall says: "It may be rearlessly as
serted that In the history of the human
race no nation ever before possessed
41,000.000 Instructed citizens." The
expenditure for education Is $2.40 for
each Inhabitant in America, $1.30 In
Great Britain, 80 cents In France, 50
cents In Germany, 30 cents In Austria
and 25 cents In Italy.
Here again we find an absolute pro
portion between the rate expended for
education and the productive power,
almost Identical with the rates existing
between foot-tons of productive power
or machinery) and product In short,
edticnt'on and machine power advance
concurrently, and the productive power,
or wage rate, advances with them.
Check to Matrimony.
In the Nineteenth Ceutury the prac
tical results of giving the higher edu
cation to woiik.u are discussed by Sirs.
A. M. Gordon from au Interesting point
of view, lays the New York .Sun.
Women In Kngland have for some time
had ac.vss 10 university training, which
Is tlio substance, aud of course the de
gree, which Is the shadow, will be
soou attainable, since to deny it Is now
Illogical and unjust. What good have
the new opportunities of education
done the women who have turned them
to account? Mrs. Gordou has collected
a quautlty of statistics upon the sub
ject, and from these she deduces the
conclusion that a college training has
not opened for women to any appreci
able extent modes of earning a liveli
hood beyond the old-fashioned meth
ods of teaching, companionship and
needlework; and that, moreover, It op
erates as a decided check to matri
mony. There Is, no doubt, one good result
of the higher education that Is not ca
pablo of measurement by statistics.
Wo lefer to the wider Interests, the
larger outlook upon llfe.nnd tho trained
Intelligence which are procurable at
universities, buf only by the minority
of students, who strenuously avail
themselves of tbe facilities at hand,
The women, like the men, who take a
mere paaa courae. might better have
stayed at home. Let us turn, however,
to those positive and practical gains
which are susceptible of mensuration.
Mrs. Gordou shows that out of 720
feminine students who have passed
through Newnham college no fewer than
274 are engaged In teaching. Of the
rest. 230 are living in their own homes,
supported, lnfereutlally, by their male
relatives. Just Ave are doctors, two
are missionaries, one Is a market gar
dener, one a bookbinder, three are
worklrg In charity organizations, six
teen have died, thirty-seven have left
tbe United Kingdom, and most of the
remainder are engaged In some sort of
secretarial work for which some pro
ficiency In typewriting would probably
have proved an adequate equipment
From Girton college comes concurrent
testimony. Of 335 students who have
there obtained degree certificates 123
are teaching, two are missionaries, six
are lu Government employment, four
are engaged lu medical duties, six are
dead, and the rest live at their owu
homes. Iu a word, the evidence dem
onstrates that thus far a college edu
catlou has done next to nothiug lu the
way of giving women additioual menus
of self-support.
Passing to the effect of university
training upon a woman's chance of en
tering the holy Btate of matrimony.
Mrs. (iordon first takes In the case of
Girton, whose young women most prof
ited by their opportunities. Of the 79
Girton girls who have obtained the cer
tificate for the mathematical tripos, or
who, lu American terms, have taken
honors in mathematics, only six have
married; of the 07 who have passed the
classical tripos, ten have become wives;
of the 47 who have gone through the
honor course, known as the natural
science tripos, seven have married.
On the other band, the feminine stu
dents who have contented themselves
with a simple pass degree that Is to
say, who have thrown away their ex
ceptional privileges furnish a larger
proportion of wives. The figures se
cured from Newnham furnish similar
results. To sum up, about one In nine
or ten of those girls who take honors
at Newnham or Girton, marries; while
about two In every five marry of those
who take a certificate equivalent to an
ordinary degree.
Tbe deduction drawn from these facts
Is that If a mother sends her daughter
to one of the English universities, the
latter Is far more likely to become a
teacher than a wife. Is this true, also,
of the Harvard and Columbia annexes?
We may expect to see that question an
swered ten or fifteen years hence, when
sufficiently demonstrative statistics
shall have been complied.

Admiaaion to Harvard.
The Popular Science Monthly says:
"The present scheme of requirements
for admission to Harvard College was
adopted In 1880. Since that time one
hundred and forty-eight persons have
entered Harvard without Greek; Thirty-live
of these have graduated, seven
teen of them with honors, two receiving
the A. B. and A. M. degrees simulta
neously. Of the ninety-one men who
have not graduated, but have been in
college long enough to make a record,
a little more than half have a record
above 'C President Eliot says In his
annual report, 'This record Is a very
creditable one, aud shows conclusively
that the persons who have thus far en
tered college without Greek are abun
dantly able to profit by their college
life, and to win n standing which Is,
011 the average, above that of those who
entered with Greek."
Children and Hooka.
The Xew York Post remarks: "A wise
anil bright young mother that I know
does uot approve of too many children's
books for children. 'They will often
reach up aud understand your book
when you think It necessary to stoop
by giving them your book lu a diluted
state,' she says. Bead to them and
with them, and then so many children's
books will not be necessary. They will
also learu how to use books by imita
tion, and In a home where the reading
Is discussed, where the dictionary and
atlas are In constant use, you will most
likely notice like habits even among
the small children of the family."
