The man -with the tall Bltt hat and ttie pin-striped trousers and the fw- coDared overcoat stepped out of his limousine Monday In Irpnt of the downtown drug store, where he usually dismounts each morning to boy hl» day'8: supplies of real HavoAas. He waved an airy hand at his' chauffeur and squared hla shoulders beneath the Inr of the overcoat to the Crocker Land air. Everything was 'all right. Then the man with the tall sOk hat and the pin-striped trousers and the far-collared overcoat strode on In ft* word the cigar counter and flung a dollar bill on the showcase. He noticed there were no lights In the humidors of the^cases. Then he saw no clerks were there. Behind the drug counters he finally spied a man he knew. "Let me have a half-doten smokes," he said. , "Sorry, bnt nothin' doln' this morning," said the man bc*irae.r: "Why--what's wrong' her.)." "Not selling todny. Fuel administration, yon know." Slowly a great lump rase In the throat of the man with the tall hat and the pin-striped trousers. Hurriedly he felt in all his pockets. Then he rushed out to Bee whether thc auto had left for home. Then he hurried to another drug Htore. Then, sadly, he went to tie office. ' As hi» entered the door, the young $35-a-wcek clerk took bis usual stogie from bis moath and exhaled a cloud of the bitter smoke that had long made him bntfid by the stenographers. The man with the tall fiat hurried over to him. "For heaven's sake, Johnny, let me have a Btogie, wiD you?" "Sorry, boss, bat this Is all I got. I found this nn in my pocket this morning--left over from Sunday." The man with the tall hat went In and sat down. He called his most rapid stenographer and began to dictate to her. His first Vetter--It should have been purely about stocks and bonds--began like this: "The American people suddenly feel the iron hand of real war Is closing in upon them."--Indianapolis News. ::~-i.-*£?!

Britain Lean* to Decimal System. The movement in Enfiland looking toward the adoption of thc decimal system for currency, which lias the Uncking of the Associated Chambers of Commerce of the United Kingdom. Is gaining ground. The London Statist stntea that the association has resolved to press the matter upon the attention of the government and to urge the introduction at a bill in parliament. It IB proposed to retain the sovereign as standard value of a thousand mills, the half sovereign 500 milts, the four Bhil- llng piece 200 mills, the two-shllllnj, piece or florin 100 mills, the halt florin, tommonly known as the shilling, 50 mills, and the sipcpence 25 mills. OC subsidiary coinage It is recommended to coin ten-mill pieces and five-mill pieces. Below these it is suggested that a four-mill, three-mill an* two-mill | piece also be coined, and If found de- i siruble ft coin representing one mill. As the fnrtliing is so little used it Is not regarded as likely that anything below the value of a half penny will be coined. M.
