It is siiggested that on Jan. 1, 1900, a new división of the year into 13 months be instituted. If such a división were niade, the first 12 months would have 28 days, or four weeks each, and the new inonth 29 days, to make 365, and 30 in leap years. After a few days there would be no need to refer to calendars, as the same day of the week would have the same date through the year. If Jan. 1 were, say, Monday, every Monday would be the lst, 8th, 16th and 22d; every Tuesday the 2d, 9th, 16th and 23d, and so on through the year. The changes of the moon would be on about the same dates through the year, and many calculations, like interest, dates of maturing notes, Easter and many other important dates would be fied.
