In many towns the gas and water supply is the property of the municipality, and in Ger- many, where they are more DIMINISHING enthusiastic municipal traders COAL than we are in this country, SUPPLY. they have a municipal bakery. But municipal trading is be- coming more popular here everyday. One of these days, no doubt, a town council will be promoting a Bill in Parliament for collecting and distributing heat from the sun. That will be when the coal supply of the world has given out, and that time, according to scientists, is within measurable distance, as distances go in these scientific questions. Fiv-e hundred years or so is a mere breath of time, though it seems a rather far outlook to ordinary people. It is probable, said the President of the Institution of Mining Engineers the other day, that in five hundred years the world's supply of coal will be exhausted. Great Britain three hundred years hence may be getting coal from China, or, as the speaker thought more likely, we may be deriving our heat directly from the sun. It is not so long ago since another speaker on this point warned everybody to use coal with economy, but it is probable that nobody has burned any less because of the warning that if we are not careful the people of five hundred years hence will be in the unfortunate position of having no coal to burn. However, it will not do any good to worry, and it is pretty certain that long before the supply of coal gives out a substitute will have been discovered by science.
