There is a school of Forestry at Nancy, in France, and the Forestry Department of India, is having young men educated there for service in the East Indies. There is no school of forestry in England, and hence advantage has to be taken of the French establishment. It is unfortunately getting to be too much in England as here, that a diligent student of forestry would stand little more chance of an appointment with his graduation papers than without; and hence there is little encouragement to sustain these schools. In the matter of appointments, they serve usually to illustrate that "kissing goes by favor." But there will be a reaction, and those who know something have always the best chance.
