If.the town with the "wooden mint" had put out 5-ccnt pieces, they'd be worth 69 cents each. Hard-boiled collectors, before Tft* nlno wont on the wboden standard, used to tell each other "Don't take any wooden' nickels," and now they •re-paying $2.BO for wooden SB-cent pieces, while wishing there were more denominations of spruce currency. C. S. Argo, president of the chamber of commerce, and Don H. Major, trustee, said today they are swamped with requests from nil over the world for samples of the wooden, scrip, Issued by tho chamber to forestall Te- nlno's financial collapse when the only bank failed, When Tonlno went back on the gold standard, after redemption recently of the largest of the monthly Issues of "crosscut currency," It found the wooden money had attracted a good deal of real United States money Into the town — so much that Tonlno Is getting along very nicely In a financial way, thank you. Leased Wire) Here's how It happened: First, nobody seems to want to redeem the spruce spondulicks as the Issues become due. Out of approximately $7200 issued since December, 1081, only $46 was presented for redemption, Of tho approximately $3600 due for redemption December 30 alone, the charhber only had to redeem $35, and as tho balance was voklod, there was a profit of more than $3500. Second, with this $3500 profit tho chamber bought tho building and fixtures of the defunct Citizens' Bunk, and Is now ready to Install a branch bank a» soon as the Legislature will permit. Third, since the wooden money was Issued to depositors In the bank, the $3600 will go to them as a dividend, releasing that much more "gold" In Tenlno. The bank already has paid a 20 per cent dividend, so business look's good. Fourth, those citizens lucky enough to possess the rarer Issues of wooden money, signed by three trustees of the chamber, are continuing to reap a golden-harvest from curio collectors. .
