Gold   seems   to    bo    as    unceitiin,  original, unexpected and persuasive in  ���������   its ways ns  human   nature,   observes  John Habborton,   iii  Collier's   Weekly.  Mineralogists have long been agreed as  to the nature of  the rocky company in  which gold can and   cannot  be   found,  yet exports among 'them  continue  to  tram j) over the precious stuff  without  suspecting its existence,  and   recently  the entire fraternity of rock sharps has  boon   staitletl   by   rich   discoveries  in  limestone, which has always   been   regarded as entirely unacquainted   with  " gold.-     The   eliscoverv, was   made   in  South Dakota, and, while  the  exports  are wondering how to reconstruct their  , theories the miners are biking,out ruck'  which is  very  rich   in  gold.    This  recalls the fact that  the   Witwatorsrand  reef in South Africa, the largest known  '   gold deposit in the-world, was  ignored  by expert" prospectors* for years,   the  rock  being   a   mete   conglomerate1   of  ' sandstone     and   quartz   pebbles,   the  latter showing  no   " color."'the sand  having, through some one of Nature's  mysterious processes, robbed the quartz  of the precious  metal.    Evidently   the  ways of gold are a warning that science  cannot aifoid to put on airs.  Muloch Saving Money. ,  Some  important,'reforms   involving  the  abolition   of  much   red,,tape,   the  ",    '   simplification of the mail clerk service,  and   the   saving   of   a   largo   sum   in  salaries are  in,.contemplation   by  the  Post  Office  Department.    At  present  .    r the mail clerk   service   is  divided   into  numerous subdivisions  with the   local  heads so   that   when   something   goes  wrong the correction loads  lo  terrible  delay and correspondence.    This  is  to  ,'  be abolished and  clerKs  will  be  made  responsible to chiefs at some central  point and those will answer nil Ottawa  inquiries.     The   round   about  correspondence will be done away  with', the  dorks required by it will be,dispensed  with, and their salaries amounting  tb  ' .some $SO,000 be saved1 U>i the country.  Another  reform   contemplated   is   tho  ,     substitution   of   the   English   for' the  Canadian, monev   older  system.    The  latter  involvos^tho   signing   of   more  documents, a more complicated system  nf identification   and   more   time   than  the British plan.   The substitution will  "'not require  tho   lopping off, of heads  ,  but' bo more agreeable for the public.  Klondyke!

Tho size;  of  claims  is   reduced   fiom  000 to 100 foot afgeneral request, and  the reduction of the royalty is- under  consideration.  Three post offices   have,   been   made  and a mail service is provided for.  The Changing English Jaw.  1 Education is playing sad havoc -vith  the tooth of modern generations. So  mi experienced dentist in the West  End says, and h������ omrht to know.  Formerly dec-ayeri teeth weie generally  attributed to a secret fondness for bonbons, but tbe idea is, it. appears,, quite,  a mistake. In fact, sugar is rather  nourishing than otherwise. The truth  is that the ancient, sturdy square jaw  of the English race is changing through  ..   lessons and book learning to an angular  or V-sbapo, which  presses  the   molars'  one upon the other, does not give; them  ���������room to grow, and will in time prevent  some of thorn cutting  at all.    Indeed,,  this catastrophe  is   not  infrequent  already.    In    nianv   cases   the    oiiginal  teeth are becoming loss in ntimboi than  they   ought   to   be, , and    often.,  the  "ivisdoniers"   fail   to  appear.  "This  in  an "educated jaw," is lamentable. The  i. new facial   form -is,   according   to'the  dentist, much cultivated by ladies, who  find that it   is  populat   among  gentlemen.   The bitter like women with   the  "educated"    angle    of   .chin,     which  generally   carries   with   it  pearly   but  very frail   teeth.    If  the  specialist  he  right, this process  of selection, 'ailed  by   further   lessons   and   more  study,  will, in the course of  time,   produce  a  race without any   tooth   at .all.    Then  will   the dentists   make  fortunes,   for  people will  requite  complete  artificial  sets from  babyhood  onward.���������London  Telegraph.
