A Two-ancl-a-Half Cent Coin
The institution of a two-and-a-
half cent piece ia bailed with joy in
the United States as a practical
method of cutting the cost of living.
It is estimated that this new coin
will save the consumers millions of
dollars in providing the right charge
in such articles as are now sold at
three cents or two for five. People
are now charged a whole cent because of the lack of fractional currency to meet situations which involve the half cent. They must
either buy what they do not need
and thus waste money or lose the
discount by not buying in double
quantity. The idea of the half cent
is both bright aud eminently practical. Why should we not have
such a coin in Canada? Surely we
need it as badly, at least as the
Unites States. Here is something
the government might do to reduce
the cost of living without offending
anybody. ���Ottawa Citizen.

is claimed no submarine could
venture within effective radius,
or if one did any torpedoes fired
would become the sport of the
waves and be thrown far away

would happen or no, it would certainly be a feat for a submarine to
torpedo a vessel moving at 100
miles an hour.���London Chronicle.
Good Advice
It does anybody good to get
away from home occasionally and
mingle with the outside world. It
serves as an elixir of life. It puts
one in touch with what others are
doing and how they do things.
Too many are content to remain at
home and Only too often they really come to that point where they
believe that their home town is the
only pebble ou the beach; that it is
the only town where things worth
while are being accomplished,
There never was a bigger fool idea.
Get it Out of your system. Change
your viewpoint.. The sooner the

"My good man, reserve your

searching my own soul with tenderness, supplication or terror.
And I perhaps, have had more
pity for these souls of animals
than for those of my brothers, because they are without epeeeh and
incapable of coming out of their

they are more humble and more
