Tho initial salaries in thoso offices is as high as iiil a an amount which it upwards of twenty years to attain in tho rank and Ho of tho ordinary civil ser vice It is a popular fallacy that Groat

The civil of this country is into two branches called respec tively the higher and lower division The latter is the working section the former tho superintending and control ling Tho entrance to each

proportion of tho items must bo taken ap As a matter of fact thb higher livisiou examination has proved a nisorablo failure It was projected in iho hope of attracting university and public school men but those literary Uuggors have turned up thoir noses at iho prize money An initial salary of B1000 a year rising by funereally slow stages to a maximum of 530001s hardly to fetch tho undergraduates Df Oxford and Cambridge oven though ihoy have no expectations of the passing sweetness with which a legacy is in jtinct Smart mon can make more than as tutors or coaches and will not therefore risk tho opprobrium attaching to defeat in a civil service examination Again tho professions of law snglneoring offer a more lucrative aroor than the very of public jlerkships In tho Government clorica

Intellectual Twenty years ser vice Is more potent In gaining a highor salary than the most intimate acquaint ance with every ology from Alpha to Omega so that when a competition wallah enters a Government office he 3oos not base his chances of ad van ce ment so much on the striking and bril liant stupidity of his colleagues tis on ihe number of grizzled and unhaired heads that bend over the

iiijoymont Nor will ho be allowed to uxuriatc on its unabridged figures for ong for tlioro Is a rule in tho British service that nono of its officers thall remain longer than forty years in ictive employment When tho four do have run thcir course he will be allod upon to retire In vain will he protest lie is not conscious of any pro nounced signs of decay or that he can perform his duties as well as tho most robust of his juniors Such pleadings ill not M a rulo avail him one jot The regulation which hus boon framed with the dual object of keeping up a good How of promotion and of ensuring an activo and vigorous staff is strictly ad hered to except in tho case of able de partmental chiefs whoso retirement would be a palpable loss to the country Not that favoritism does not in many in

pronouncedly assured Although en trance to tho British civil service is as have before stated determined by open competitive examination whom in tho abilities of each candidate are esti mated according to the literary knowl edge which ho displays the subsequent advancement not infrequently depends upon tho pressure brought to bear on heads of departments by the friends of aspirant to preferment Given two govern mon t clerks of exactly similar education and business capabilities tho ono who can borrow tho oar of a Cabinet Minister or Treasury lord will suddenly bo discovered to pos sows abilities which it may safely bo as sorted would have never been un earthod except for tho fortuitous com bination of propitious circumstances which led up to bho halldoor of such a powerful personage Although patron age in ollicos recruited through tho open competitive system is nominally as dead as Julius Ciesar iu reality it is a living acting force which every civil servant who does not possess influential friends has to reckon with when figuring out his chances of promotion indeed it could not well bo otherwise considering that it is barely twenty years since it hold undisputed sway throughout tho Isles and dictated the appoint ment of every Government employee from a tidewater to a Secretary of State Iviko tho broken rose round whose shattered fragments hang tho scent of

works but I can not exclude thorn from tho charge of unfitness and incapability Even Mr Gladstone who in 1870 successfully ap plied his ax to tho upas troo of public patronage by throwing open tho civil service to tho ability and energy of tho whole country is not proof against the temptation of providing for his secre taries at the expense of tho permanent servants of tha crown His action in this direction is so sumptuously incon sistent as to evoke from many a govern ment clerk tho title of grand old hum bug Instead of tho moro popular one of grand old man But patronage liko prejudice

however for her to oc oasionly hasten his somewhat lazy stops for ho is of an investigating turn of mind and stops frequently to examine such objects as arouse his curiosity This fault tho woman says is owing to his youth for ho is only about ayoar old She also says that his education was by no moans so difficult as a dogs for the same business would have been and that whenever she is unable to go

with some of tho impurities forming a coagu lum which as it settles carries with it to the bottom of the basin the other im purities leaving the clarified sewage This clarified sewage is then allowed to How off into tho river and then tho siudge is drawn off from below and deposited on land adjacent to tho works where it will be plowed under and is expected to cause no detriment to the health or comfort of tho neighborhood Tho basins are so constructed that all may bo used simultaneously or the flow of sowago may be cut off from any ono ormoro of thorn for removing the sludge for cleaning or repairs The works have a capacity equal to tho daily purification of gallons of sowage and the annual cost of their maintenance is estimated at about and BwMmr Itecord A Golden Chance We had got

District Ministers Alliance for the purpose of considering the marriage and the divorce laws of the country tho liquor tramc was severely discussed but like all questions there was difference of opinion Some of them were in favor of high license while others were uncom promising prohibitionists As the dis cussion waxed warm one brother said that they might as well try to jump over the sun as to try to get a prohibi tion law through Congress Another thought that a half loaf high license was better than no loaf at all Tnis sen timent did notwin unanimous approval and it was quickly suggested that moulded bread was worse than no bread for it contained germs of death and that nothing short of absolute prohibition would wipe out tho accursed trallic One of the brethren German
