Mr Colin, I'kc ninny other merchaul.s, saw ,1 chance lo advertise his business In a iwher unusual niaime>r ITS' offering to sell his customers Ilfty'cents worth of cigars and give them one dollar iu eh.'ingc. On the face, of it, (he.proposition looks absurd, but It Is easily,done. He scni a New York dnift-j-'ooil for one hundred dollars lir gold coin, to the Governmenl treasury at.tlie City cf Mexico, the capital o-f Old Mexico. In return lie rc- ce.ived one hundred a.ud eighty-wen Mexican-silver dollars, each containing .four grains more of silver, than- the dollar of rl;e United Stairs. Figuring all expense.? iu aud averaging the cost, of bis Mexican dollars, he fo'uind that they cost him just'lll'iy-five cents each.. We offered 10 give to anyone pnrelKi^Ing tV tv cunts worth of cigars, one of tlusc'Mexican'dollars in ex- diaugc.piOTlded the customer gave him a dollar Lu the coin of the United States. In oilier word*, a customer laid down a United States silver dollar, received fifty cents worth of cigars aud a Mexican dollar. It cost Mr. .Colin ,1n.5t five cunt.s" on each sale t!ms made, but it was n good advertisement. Rut the silver, -fanatic.-*, were not pTeawid with- this practical domonstratioft &£ tlie effects of free coinage, and they went to Mi-. Colin-and 'said: "You had better alee those il—n Mexican dollars ouf of your show case ami cjnlt offering them for llfty cents, or wu will .see that yon lose your trade." The Mexican dol-' lars a.ro no longer displayed for trnge at tho terms first offered, but Mr. Cohtt has a part of Ills stock on hand and is willing to dispose»of the shiners at what they cost h-im. A .Tonriuil mnu laid down a dollar of the United States, backed by-a gold.dollar, and a five eeut piece of the .same government, and was ^Iven one of the Mexican dollars and two silver iiiuirtors of the cotaage'of the United States mints. The reason why the yawpirtg. froe''silverites iu \l~.ls neck of the woods >d Id n't want Mr. Co ha-to continue hi the business of distributing Mexican silver dollar* at their true worth is that it Is too plain and practical nu abject lesson on tlie result of free coln:ige oif silver, i Let every workingnmu, every . man , who works ; for a-"salary is a working ^ man, study carefully this list of prices . • for the necessaries of life which the . people' o£- Mexico arc paying, aud his ( :com-mon-sonse will tell him which he .-prefers, a dollar which will buy a dol- ' Inr's worth of "goods, or a dollar which iforcds the prices 'be goods to double its true worth, while his wages remain I he same. .f> Ibs..
