England's Latest I'o-tal Keform. It may be useful to remind tho public that the new y stem of i-siiing money orders has now come into operation, l'ractically that system may be de scribed as one which will enable eien the jioorcst per-on to enjoy the luxury of drawing a cheek for sm ill sums without having a banking account. In another scn-e it may be described a- a scheme for lloating a paper currency at the back of which is the guarantee of money paid to the (lovernincnt for the purpo-e of meeting that currency. Henceforth, in-teid of billing money orders in the old fashion one may go to a po-t-ollice and pureha-e a kind of printed check iRing jCl U-. foral check, and, of cour-e, sin ill sum- pro rata for amounts under a umd. This instrument is negotiable and mav be pas-ed from hand to hand, just like the Scottish JL'l bank-note. Like it, loo, it is only payable 011 demand to the bear er, at a particular ollice specified on the face of the document, but unlike it. it is not paiable it any tune, in fact, it is not paiable if presented three months after the date of i-siie. 'Ihe new po-tal order ha- another adianlago over the Scottish bank-note It can be cros-cd like a check, and made payable only through the banker mentioned in the "cro-sins." Altogether the scheme is one which will giie the public greater facilities for transmitting sin ill sums of money than the haie yet enjoyed, and perhaps render it possible for tho post-oflice to work their money-order organization with greater proht than heretofore has been denied from it. 'Ihe only question that suggests itself in connection with tho change is: Why should the-e non orders not be pur chasable as long as a branch post-office is open for tran-acting bii-inc-s? 1 here is a good rca-ou w h they should not be paiable after a particular hour, but there is absolute! no more reason why the should not be -old on demand, at any hour when busine-s is being done, than whi stamps should not be similai ly vended. We hoe that Mr. Fan celt will be able to repeal the absurd rule that limits the sale of the new orders to certain specified hours of the day. London Stamlard. Uailna) iimeiiclatiire.

A depot is a place u here stores and ma terials arc deposited for safe keeping. A lonely shanty, which looks like a lodge outside a garden of cucumbers, a staging of a few planks upon which two or three people stand like criminals on the scallold to call such places depots is the height of pretentious absurdity.
