In England, under the recent school laws, she is becoming more abundant; but even there, not long since, her social position was so humble that Miss Jean Ingelow, in her Studies for stories, seriously blames an ambitious young woman with not being content with her modest lot as teacher, but indulging dreams of rising to the career of a milliner. Indeed, so far are European countries from yet accepting this finer force that American educators who have stayed in Europe a little too long are apt to come back regretting our extensive employment of women, and assuming that because Germany does not pursue this practice it is not the best thing for
