A glittering example of tlie parsimony of the United States I government, in connection with the employment of experts in the vaiious departments under the civil service, came to light a day or so ago when notices appeared in numerous newspapers throughout the country (all run free, by the way) offering any nice young man of good habits a position paying twelve hundred real dollars evety year in exchange for services us government petrographer. The qualifications for the posi tion were such that it is extremely doubtful if even President Wilson could have passed the examination perfectly, for they included, in ad- good habits, tin education better than that possessed by the average college professor Thorough knowledge of •hemisiry was one of the essentials, and to this specification was coupled mathematics, geology, py ruing; German, French, Spanish, Portu guese.
