An elderly mUHonaJre, vcbo had married a beautiful young woman, was presented on his birthday with a very handsome watch chain by her. He was delighted with the gift and beamed upon hie charming young wtte. "It la perfect," he agreed, "so massive, yet in excenent taste." "I felt sure you would like it," she replied, "and It was eo inexpensive, too. I only paid twelve dollars lor it." "Only twelve dollars!" replied the millionaire in surprisu, "Twelve dollars for this solid gold phain?'* "Oh, of course, it isn't solid gold, dear," sho replied, "you could never get solid gold lor that price. It la gold filled." The husband stroked his chin reflectively aa ho inquired: "Why this sud- don streak of economy? Don't you think I can afford a solid gold chain?" "To be sure you can," she assented, "out this one ia guaranteed for ten years, and--and--" "Well?" Impatiently Interrupted the millionaire. "Well, dear," she continued, with" a slight heightening ot color, "as that IB aa long as you aro likely to live, I thought It -would be foolish, extravagance to pay more." Cowo aa a Money Standard, The Chewsures, a race of 7,000 people, In Tiais, southern Russia, know nothing of the use of money aa a medium of exchange. The unit of value among these primltve people ts the cow. A horse IB valued at three cows and a stallion at six. If n Chews-are becomes enraged and cracks his neighbor's · skull, he is obliged to pay 18 cows. If he breaks a bone 1n his friend'o arm or leg, Qve cows Trill rehabilitate him In the eyeo of society, while a wound In tho forehead calls for three cowa.
