In case there are no applicants with the qualifications for either of the above mentioned positions with the government, a job is open for a male helper in the laboratory in the bureau of chemistry, department of agriculture, at $600 a year. Examinations for this position will be December 13. The duties of laboratory helper will be the cleaning of apparatus and any other work in which they can save the time of the chemists by performing labor that is essentially manual.
