Quips and Quiddites of the Man in the Street. (BY PODAKGUS.) The Railway Commissioners, appear to be under the impression | that the Victoriaii Railways are the best managed in the work!-?! because tliey manage them. lt| costs too much for the education for the tali poppies of the public service when such "education" calls for trips to Europe and America extending over some months at first-class fare in travelling andedibles. The worstof these experiments in education" is that the pupils return "no wiser than before." Even poli ticians, such as Messrs Fisher and Watt, come back unen lightened, for the simple reason that it is given to but few men to have a properly developed bump of observaton, and beyond a series of banquets, -followed by frothy speeches as the result thereof, the money expended on political trips might be put to much better uses, even if spent on cleaning the railway carriages on the South Gippsland line.

CONVICT SNOBS There has been a movement for separate tables at meals among the convicts at the prison "hotel" at Camp Hill, Isle of Wight, where ah attempt Is made to reform convicts, by special privileges (says the "Daily Mail"). Meal times at Camp Hill are social functions which, the warders are' riot permitted to disturb.. These old, habitual criminals, who havo been granted many comforts by the autho rities, have after-dlnr.er chats .which are often of a strictly confidential nature. Lately a distinct "caste" feeling has sprung up. The'more notorious men have formed a clique. They 'decline to discuss subjects with men of less repute. Apart from this purely pro fessional jealousy, there are. sharp cleavages of opinion, religious, moral, and political, which have been so marked that further controversy on gentlemanly lines is cut of the ques tion. The result is that things have not been so happy as formerly at the long tables in the dinln'groom. Several men have the habit of leani...
