AVe have suggested it courageous scheme of vocational education as n demand of-. the hewer democracy. Niake tiie term as elastic as you please. Vocational education may be defined as' that fits.a man to do a uf work in the world in the most efficient manner possible so that this work may bo of the greatest possible value to the world. ^In amplification it may be added, ft'nd which wiH bring the maximum of happiness to the iloer ot it. This is labor's democratic soul. Xo Canadian literature, or poetry, walls the protossor. Agreed ] without flebate. ^But wo Jiave good' Canadians who are at once our business and our hope.

Give them happiness and get rid of the dirges, ^ , However, we have long since recog- ^ nized, and rightly, thai t!io physician )' must have vocational education, likewise the school teacher and preacher; hence tho ineiffcal college, the nor-trial Ki-liool nnd theological seminary. bia,we have beca slow to loaru that other spheres ot labor are^qually valuable with these and qonsequently de-1 serving, ot that ysBJjtanCc which' makes for their highest efficiency. So we have chopped up humanil.v, in our consistency, .correspondingly, and dubbed It as professional, business, and laboring classes. . For the entering to these gradatlonal spheres the one gets a "call" a'nother a "position" another a "job." For the remunerating of fidelity to each, the one receives a "wage'" another a "salary" the other, -. .The least honored ot all (except at .conventions) is the great army of toilers; w-hp are not "educated" yet who l^bpr surrounded by a first-hand Imminence ot God and with the fresh voices'of nature singing to their soul. The newer democracy will ask that Sve pull down the hills and raise ut/ the valleys oiid smooth out thfj rough' places nnd make straight tho 'paths of happiness to all. We bQllevo tiiat it Important that there be schools for the training of farmers, trades-workers, home-mtik-ers. etc., as for a few so-called pro-fesslonallsts. .My ov;n conviction and experience is that thip edueatioti is an assistance to the already good public school work. It, has appeared to some that a line qt specialised sclyjols is un-democratic. This posl-ti'on will not he defehdod hd^e other than to say that it 1^ a conelufeiou from a limited view ot itemocracy.' 'Co&petltion today among men is keener tharv ever before, Only he will win in the fierce contest whose .mind has been most carefully developed and whoso hand has been most skillfully trained to do efficient work.
