The Assouan Dam and other irriga- tion works in Egyypt. have cost. about $53,000,000; but. the increase in the value of land in the middle and lower provinces, has been from $955,000,000 to $2,440,000,000. . - Governor-elect Sulzer has sent. his to Governor Dix to take elfecn on December 31st.

Many suggestions of the sort have’ been made for many years, but we believe this is the first time that ‘en- dorsement has come from what may be called a representative body. Fortunately-the-plan-is-a~simple—one~ and calls for very slight readjustments. It is simply to drop New Year Day from~enumeration and call the 2d of January the 1st. This leaves four quarters of 91 days each, save in-- lea year: when ‘the odd day islalso ’to be omitted from enum_er_at_ig3;_a_nd; called simply “leap day._” It is pro- posed to make it come after the last day‘of Jun_eT‘ ” By this method there would be two months of thirty days and one of thirty-one days in each quarter. But the great. bene is in thekfact that in every year the same day of the month would fall on the same day of the year. This wouldpbe valued in holidays, although in the re- formed calendar the days might not fall exactly to suit all concerned. In business circles the plan is accepted with enthusiasm, because the present calendar entails an enormous amount of work in calculating interest. One thing that does not seem to be con- sidered is that inevitably there is to bealoss of Sundays. The week of the year- will be eight days long as will be one in June every four years.
