The Poverty Social.
the; item ' of expense , Attending
clerk hire during the. sessions of
the legislature. Not only has the
expense been great, but the ser
vice has evidently been of poor
quality. 'And why of poor quali
to? There can be but one an
swer to this query: ' Personal
friendships of the various legisla
tors who chose an ill-qualified
clerk. If a young lady were a'
clerk, various' reasons may be
found for her inability to spell,
punctuate, etc., such as the shape
and size of her waist and feet,
the color of her eyes and com
plexion, whether her hair - was
curlly or not, the quality of voice,
whether brunette or blond, are a
few attractions that may have cut
a figure. At any "rate, from the
preface above referred to, it is
piain that mental qualifications
were not the paramount consider
ation in many instances where a
legislator selected his clerk.
