THE CLOSING OF THESDHOOI. !
The sens on is approaching when tin
public schools will close for the summer
mor , and teachers and pupils wil
enter upon the long vacation whicl
intervenes between the commence
niont exercises nnd the opening of tin
now school year. Most of the privnt <
educational institutions hnvo nlrcndj

les * impractical ideas upon the grcal
fi.'ld of usefulness which awaits then :
and the part which ihuy are to play in
what ia culled "tho battln of lifo. '
The epccchea which have been spokut.
and the CSSBVS which Imvc
been road h vu told much
of " cxnalcd 'opjiortunilies" in
llio past and coming "victories in the
'uture , " Addresses delivered by
thono who have lefl far behind tlicm
huir nchool nnd college days , have
jointed out what accin lo Ilium in thu
ight of a mature experience the do
ccts and the oxcollcncica of our syn-
otn of education , and the press hai
.ikon up the subject and ia aiming
la annual shafts of satire and wit at
ho "young helpless ijritduato. " Some
chronic croakers are printing Iheir
iows upon the usclcasnoss of the
liqhor education , and granting np-
iroval of Ilor.ico Grceloys old maxim ,
which was written , by the way , in a
it of editorial dyspepsia , that of all
lorned animals the eollego graduate
s the worst.
The dill'orcnoo of opinion which
oxisls regarding the value , in a practi
cal aoiiBo , of our secondary schools
and colleges , results from a misappro *
iciiaicn of the aim of the education
which they strive to impirt. Wo
lave few universities which turn out
scholars. They nro only drill rooms ,
in which the pupils nro taught the
use of weapons which they are to use
n after lifo. Nothing butcxpcrienco
with lifo can make pr.ictical men. No
) usineas college can graduate a practi
cal merchant , fitted to grapple with
great commercial problems. The law
school ia yet to bo founded whoso
graduate is enabled at once to
cjpo with the giants of the profession
and thoao who hold diplomas from our
Jcwt technical schools diacovor that
skilcd engineers , chemhts and physi
cians can only bo mndo in actual com-
sat with the problems of their pro
fession in every day lifo loth pupil
and the public make n great mistake
in overlooking- fact that any edu
cation is necessarily primary , and that
, ho ical education which ( Ita men to
nount lo the highest rounds of the
adder in any calling or profession is
; nincd by building firmly through
radical experience , upon thofounda-
.ion of the school curriculum.
[ t is not to bo denied that the gradu
ate of the common school often shows
in after lifo to the great disadvantage
of the collegian , because the gap between -
tweon llio closing of his school daya
and llio commencement day of the
college graduate has been filled in hie
case by attention to the practical de-
taila of hia business. Entering as a
youth the ollico , the counting room in
.ho factory ho is learning business
Methods while his oomrado is still

Wo do not believe that any educa
tion ia thrown away if it can bo BUG-
coodcd by prnolical application of ite
lessoni to lifo. The necessity for thin
practical application iawhat montyouny
graduates fail to sco until it is driven
in o them by many lurd knocks from

many fuiluree. Thu world is not

ing thu working expenses , interest
and redemption of obligations , and
interest al 5 per cent. onMiarco , there
remains , while still providing 5 per
cent , for tbo statutory reserve , a net
profit of 24G78MGf. ( . ' )83. ) The nmri-
Umo traffic consisted of 2,7-7 vessel * ,
the gross tonnngo of which gauged
5,70 l.-IOl tons. Compared with 1880 ,
this ahows nn nugmontation at the
rate of 31 per cent. Seven nnw lines ,
thu report adds , have been established
during the year , nnd the regular ser
vices liavo added to their material 40
now steamers. The excellent condi
tion of Iho canal lias been not only
maintained , but oven still further im
proved by the works carried out by
the company in the interest of com-
merco. The average price of land
sold at L'ort Said h s risen to 40f. 20c.
the square metro. As nt present cir
cumstanced , the canal is adequate to
double the traffic at present using it.
In prospect , however , of a future still
greater incraaso of navigation through
the canal , the directors request from
the shareholders Iho necessary powers
to enable them to realize at moro fro-
jucnt intervals successive issues of
ibligationa , to extend over a period of
iJianmrck haa suffered an over
whelming defeat on his tobacco mon
opoly bill , on which ho had sot his
icart , and had pressed to n vole wilh
Croat vigor. J3y the provisions of the
jill the imperial authorities werno
iiivo absolute control of the tobacco
: ) U9liiP83 throughout Germany. No
ono was to be allotted to plant tobacco
without a government permit , and
10110 but the government woo to bo
illowod to purchase , manufacture or
sell the weed but itself. Even the
smallest detailn relating to the busi-
ICHS , such as regulating the quality
md prices of snuff , cigars and tobacco
n other forma , was cither fixed by the
} ill or loft to the chancellor to decide.
Hie object of this great monopoly was
o create a largo government revenue ,
jut Prince Bismarck failed to convince -
vince the Reichstag that such a power
aa the bill proposed should bo placed
in the luiulu of tha government. Uo
struggled hard , nnd in a two hours'
speech sought to secure the passage of
the measure. In the course of his re
marks ho paid a high compliment to
the United States on account of its
prolcctivo system. But Iho prince
labored in vain. By a vote of 27G lo
13 Iho measure was rejected. Had
this happened in England it would have
led to a chungo of ministry , but Bis
marck finds his rovcngo in having the
roiclistrg prorogued until next
autumn. It is quite evident Unit the
great chancellor ia no longer n control-
ing power in German politics , and
during the debate on the tobacco bill
Ilerr Hamburger told him to hia face
that he was "on the roud to the. ruin
of his polilical reputation. " It was
further charged that ho was incapable
of governing with a parliament , and to
this he replied with considerable as
perity , Baying that "no one could
yovorn with Herr llichtor's parly in
the majority. "
Germany ia terriCed at the sternly
and largo increase of the population.
The number of births over deaths has
attained.un annual average of 550,000 ,
nnd the increaseof population nineo
1871 to 1881 over 4,000,000 , exclusive
of Alsace-Lorraine , the Grand Duchy
of Baden and Husso. The emigration
of 200,000 to 1500,000 annually is not
Biilllcient to counterpoise the overcrowding -
crowding , and it is feared , in addition
that thu largo immiqration to thu
United Stales may become too much
of a good thing to that country , and
repressive legislation may result.
There are 400,000 marriages in Ger
many each year , and it is becoming a

the opinion Hint the communes ought
to bo empowered to place certain re
strictions to marriages , "without ,
however , interfering with individual
liberty. " But how lliia is to be done
ia not explained. France , on the
other band , is lamenting the deplora
ble slowness in increase of the popula
tion. The problem has attracted the
attention of M. Larocho Joubcrl , an
active dopuly of the exlromo rigbt ,
who has introduced a bill with the
specific object of increasing the popu
lation of France , The bill provides
for relieving married men from service
in proportion to Iho number of their
children. The first clause provides
that every French citizen in lime ol
peace or offensive war shall , on prov
ing that bo Is the father of a legitimate
child , bo exempt from active serviou

The replacement of General Igna-

it is of no good omen for the future

well-meaning , philanthropic man , who
could govern ai , Abdera or a Monaco
with fair succcs' . But ho never haa
been anything but n first-class mis-
chief-maker in Russia. He had a fair
share in spoiling the uknso of omnnci-
pilion , His repressive course while
in the ministry of education drove
the educated young men of the great
cilics into thoao secret nsaocialiona
which culminated in Iho nihilistic or
ganization. As chancellor , ho can done

It is said that in certain parts of
franco important stcpi are to betaken
to renew , through systematic athletic
exorcises , the ancient vigor of the
present race. At Reims has just been
liold a fete with 2,000 , young men
: rom all sections of France taking
: > art in it , which ia declared to have
jeon n part of the qonoral scheme.
The French minister of public instruc
tion was present at a banquet given
subsequently , and said that if hia
lopes and plans were only carried out ,
Franco would , in a few yeara' time ,
"bo nblo to point with pride to a race
of active and manly youths somewhat
different in physique nnd appearance
'rom the palid boys who loiter about a
small court-yard or walk in procession
.hrough . the streets on half-holidays. "

Hitting a little backbone into the
ircncnt c/r of all the Russius. The
atest dispatches from St. Petersburg
leclaro that the czar has increased the
irocautiom ; against nnaaaaination in
lis imperial retreat , and that he has
.aken exorcise in splitting wood , nfler
ho fusli in n of Gladstone. It ia a
ncloncboly spectacle to aeo the ruler
of 00,000,000 people driven to such
xpedionta to preserve hia health ,

iad different ideas of recreation. Cut-
ing nlf heads was their pastime , and
considering tbo character of tbo llua-
ian , it was much safer for the czar.
Tea is laigely grown in the Indian
irovince of Assam. Between 1872
und 188 L Iho population in consequence
quence of UUH industry increased

duo to the importation of labor. The
ast tea report Allows an area ot 153- ,
G59 acres under cultivation and an
