Someone handy with figures has
adduced tho information that the time
a young man puts in at acquiring an
education is worth $10 per day, which
is certainly not a meager salary. Tho
average educated man commands a
salary of $1,000 a year, it is argued,
whille tho day laborer, at l.oO per
day, makes $."340 a year, working 300
days. Working forty years, the edu
cated man commands $40,000, whilo
the common laborer earns $18,000
in uis life time. Twelve years of
school is said to bo sufficient to
bring the educated mac's salary, and
tho difference of $22,000 in a life time
is said to pay at the rate of $10 per
day for tho 2,100 school days put in at
study It is a neat argument and a
timely one at this season whet: it is
aznin shown that a small number of
boys aro members of the graduating
classes in comparison with the number
of girls who havecomplotrd their high
school education. It would fxeiu that
the young men and their parents
should ba willing to stretch a lone

will profit them nt tho rate of $10 a

The work of rescue was begun at o:ice
