The first fork of the educational
road comes at the age of nine years.
Those who ate to receive an extend

branch off lrom the curriculum of
those who are to leave school at

lourteen those who are to be arti

but must still continue to attend at
certain hours ot the day or in the
evening what are known as Fort-
bildungs Schule, for three years.
The Fortbildungs Schule are prac
tical trade and commercial schools
and must be attended by all. Those
who are destined for a higher de
gree of education, alter the age of
nine, go through the middle school
until they reach the age of fifteen.
At fifteen a further differentiation
of the curriculum is made. One
branch leads to what is termed in
America, classical education, and
the other to technical education.
There is a third branch, not, how
ever, directly connected, in which
the pupil, after fifteen, may devote
himself to higher commercial train
ing.The artisan may also takeupthis
branch. After fifteen the classical
education is pursued in the Gym
nasium, which correspounds to the
American high school and prepara

course is in the Real Schule and the

are allowed to go from one univer

(semester), attending the lectures
ot the most prominent professors in
their particular branches, and they
are thus enabled to come in contact
with the very highest authorities.

The German educational system
is undoubtedly the most successful
and thorough system of education
that has ever been evolved. It is to
the perfection of the system that
Germany owes so much of her pres
ent greatness. The system is one
that does not give to a few a very
high degree ot eJncation and turn
the remainder adrift with but little
learning, but gives all an apportu-
nity to pursue their studies to the
highest possible point. There are,
proportionately, twenty times as
many illiterates in Great Britain,
eighty times as many in France,
and one hundred and filty-lour
times as many in the United States
as in Germany.
