In this column -last week somt emphasis was laid oiuthe importance and
���value of developing habils of thrift, and in iho concluding paragraphs parents
were urged to encourage their children to start a savings nccounc early in
life, antl even lo provide the nucleus of such an account lidoro thc child
was old enough to think and act Cor itself. '
The writer's attention  has since then been.drawn to a report ou Tho
Penny Dank of '.'Ontario, a system  created for the purpose of encouraging ,
thrift, on the part oT school children In that Province, and thereby leaching
in a concrete way the wisdom and great value ol" thrift and tlio habit of waving.     The subject.is surely impqrtant enough to warrant a further reference.
It is the aim of The Penny Bank-of Ontario to provide.,for evciy child at
school an opportunity on a stated day of each week to put small coins in a
safe place and to prove to him or her how quickly a series of .small amounts
.���builds info a comfortable balance. Prom the report, to wliich reference has
been made, it is learned-that" Penny Bank accounts "in the public schools
���<-f Toronto now number 45,253, while the average school attendance, ls about
���88,000. In ��I her words, 78 per cent, of the children are taking advantage
of the service offered. -   * - ���
Some rather interesting facts are disclosed through this Penny Bank
scheme, and two questions asked, based on the weekly reports, are: "Arc
tho chiUireu of well-to-do parents'gaining a just notion of., the value of
money?" "Is there a tendency among them to regard coppers, nickels and
.ten-cent pieces as mere chicken-feed, as contemptible coins, as unworthy fractions of thai, noble unit, the Dollar "
Analyzing the deposits made in Toronto schools in a'given week, it was
found that in th'e poorer districts the services of the Penny Bank aro accepted
���and appreciated to a far greater extent than, in the more well-to-do districts.
In one school in the heart of the poorest, district, -15 per ceiit.of the children
���present on October 27 last-made deposits. Ou that same day in one school
in one of the richest districts only 13 per cent, of the pupils were depositors,
while at another school in a rich district the figure was 11 per cent. Throughout, the eighty-eight public school's in Toronto the average of depositors on
���October. 27 was 27 per cent, of the pupils present. " .
It may be true, and probably is, that many "of tlio- children in the better
presidential, districts have savings accounts in the chartered hanks.     If so,
tho hoy or girl, is not likely, to mako a journey to the bank to deposit 25 eleven 50 cents,     lie or she is more likely tci wait until a dollar or more is ac-
' cumulated, and meanwhile ,the small coins gradually fritter away.
Asa writer in a Toronto paper'points out, in commenting on this Penny
Bank scheme, tlio training thus afforded is' just as valuable for the ehlld'of
a prosperous home as for the boys or girls of the poorest disliict. It may
be even more .valuable, since tho son or daughter of the -ricl-i man is likely
some time to have the handling of large sums of money. They cannot
-manage them efficiently unless they know tho exact value of a nickel, unless
���they have learned the importance of small sums. It is the untrained children
of the rich who blossom into wasters.  ���
Thrift is a habit, a character-forming habit. Tlio boy or girl who deposits five cents every week'without, exception get more benefit than another
who deposits a dollar at. infrequent and irregular Intervals. In the business
���of life, pay-day-comes once a week, or once. :i month. The man or woman
who hanks a stated amount, large or small, on. each pay-cky is on the road
to success, and the boy or girl who makes tlils a habit early in life is alsiost
���certain to succeed;
Here.lu the West, tho same principle is being applied is some schools by
mauy individual families.- The. boys-or girls are given a pig. a calf, a setting of eggs, for-their very own on the understanding that they look after
them, and the iucrease and profits are theirs. I'nllris way, the boys and girls
. nouonly develop a greater love for animals'aud learn invaluable lessons as to
their proper .care and feeding, hut their interest in thc farm home and agricultural pursuits generally is maintained and intensified. ��� And if lhe profits from
the handling of their own poultry or livestock are carefully placed jn a savings
account, or are used to add to their holdings, it will not be many years before
.these boys and girls accumulate-a-respectable bank-'account,-whicli will prove
a.further Incentive.-to careful management, and a- training.through actual experience which will prove of undoubted value to them throughout life.

From Underground Spring
Presence of Fish in Pond Mystifies
Dakota Farmers
Fish measuring two inches have
been found on the farm oC John
O'Hagan. near Oniumee, N.D. Farmers in the neighborhood are mystified
because the pond, which has no outlet, has formed .within the last Iwo
years and apparently is fed by a
spring. The only explanation is that
the fish are coining through an underground channel. The discovery
was made when farmers were taking
ice irom Jthe pond for packing purposes. .

UTion the recumbent effigy of King
Edward in St. George's Chapel, Windsor, is formally unveiled, tho eiligy ot
his Queen will bo revealed to tho public at the same time.
The figure of King Edward lias been

years. The slab for the companion
figure of-Queen Alexandra adjoins it.
"It i.s impossible-to say when tho
unveiling will take place," the sculptor. Sir IkTtram Maekenael, said,
when interviewed. "For five years
repairs have Icon in progress "to the
roof ol St. George's Chapel, and until
the renovations are. complete if will be
impossible to unveil the figures "for

Few people knew that at thc time
that Sir Bertram'executed his figure
of King Edward for St. George's
Chapel he designed a "similar figure
ot the Queen under the personal supervision of Queen Alexandra herself. It
shows her in her coronation robes.

British  Satisfied  With  Monarchy
Would Not Wish to Change to Republic
Says New Statesman-
That the British king is more" assured bf a secure- and .continued tenure
of his throiie than'are moharchs' of
any other great power is the declaration made by-The New ^ Statesman,.
which adds:
���"Most of us are" convinced supporters" of the system of constitutional
monarchy, because we' have seen the
advantage of having' a hereditary
rather than any elocled head of .the
state. ''British political philosophy,
even when it is republican, can find
no room for a head of the" state having such powers as aro granted, for
example, to an American president.
"If we were ever to choose a president, we should choose, him as a figurehead, not as a ruler, and should probably grant him even smaller powers
than are ^accorded, to the president of
Franco and Germany.,'"Our"traditional and deeprooted 'conception 'of a government responsible .only. Iq parlia
ment and primarily, to'"the House ol
Commons, excludes .the possibility .of
any active power being'conceded-eith-
|.er to, a president .or to a king.
"This being so, no one in this coun
try desires In practice any change iri
the direction ot republicanism. Thece
would be no advantage in substituting
election'for heredity in the choice ota
man whoso .duty is to represent tlii?
diguity rather than the power of th'e
state; and.(here would be plain dis-
advantages. ���'---���-���������
"Thc British monarchy is essential;
ly an empirical device, and as such It
works admirably. It^ embodies the
principle of -dignity -without- power
