The education of the business man in all that appertains to business life is as essential as the education of the professional man in all that appertains to professional life. His attainments, his powers, and his manhood are laid under contribution, and without a thorough and practical business education he is like a ship at sea without compass or rudder.

When students were taught only the theories of business and were given only an indistinct outline of business forms, and the merchant found them unable to do the work of the office, his conclusions were that business colleges could not, or did not, educate them properly for active business life. These objections have been met in a practical manner by the introduction of practical business departments in the institutions, and by the employment of intelligent teachers that were once active business men having a practical knowledge of business forms.

The apprenticeship system has passed away, and with it the prejudice against, and the ignorance of, a business education in a business college.
