A most remarkable show waa recently held in

It is an astonishing fact that tho south
adopted baked beans and codlMi balls lieforo
alio took tho nitnblo penny into her good
graces. The latter st ill remains under the ban,
and is not likely to bo regarded with favor for
some time to come. New Orleans is making an
effort to get tho penny started In circulation in
time for tlio exposition. While tlio south con
tinues to resist tho introduction of a smallor
coin than tho nickel there is an Increasing de
mand at tho north for tho coinage of half
eents. Nearly every country but eurs has a
smaller coinage Tho French centime is only
one-fifth of ono cent, tlio Portuguese rel only
one-tenth, and tho Chinese cash or sen, even
of Ichb value. Many small articles in tins coun
try arc sold at the rato of two or moro for a
