' .They'-. are '^not making merely, a fleeting visit. H They are here to stay.....-Hereafter -a � 13 cent can of string beans will cost exactly 13 cents. The customer will be charged no more. If a nickel and a dime are deposited on the .counter in payment, two. redLcents will be puslied back in change. A-Tiew ''era, in the commercial world'Pf Le'tlihridge has arrived.-� The. Hudson's Bay,, Co. ia the inatig-; ator of the copper coinage movement in Lethbridge. Shortly after Manager Dodman assumed control of the Bay here, he decided that the time was not far distant, when the copper must make its appearance. He has read the handwriting--on the wall. The advance of. oldor civilization on the prairie provinces demands the introduction of the cent, and Mr. Dodman anticipated the Inevitable. ......
