An Old Citizen • Telia, HIS Exper- it ience With State Bank Notes . .A display of bank notes In the w-l-n- "iiow of tlie Journal office attracted a gVeatdeal of attention yes'terday afternoon. The collection included a .number of bills Issued by the late lamented Confederate States. of America, eight 'State'bank notes, Issued prior to the war of the rebellion, and one (silver certificate b£ the present day .of the denomination of one dollar. The latter note'"is worth more than'all' of the others combined, when It comes to paying for the necessaries ofllfe. Many 'of the older citizens remember -when ithe State bank currency was In circulation. In. fact, 'it was about, the only .money we had with which to buy calico at-thirty cents a yard, sugar at twenty cents a pound, and other thing: in proportion. The crowds stood about tlie sidewalk and discussed "old times' 'when they had bandied such money by the pocket full, and did'not know from: one minute to' the next what it was worth. One old gentleman said: "Why I cau reanember one Fall when I hud a bunch of hogs to sell. I drove them-to market at Cincinnati, some thing-over seventy-five miles from where I lived. I got my pay for those ' hogs' in State bank notes, worth less than-their face value. In those times >every man who handled money had a detective, a pamphlet issued montti- ly by the bankers and which told what the notes of the banks Issuing money over the country was worth. We didn't have many telegraphs or railroads In .those times, and maybe when the report would get v ar.onn<J that the notes <of a biink were worth flfty or sixty or 'seventy-five cents on the dollar, .the bank-would have gone' under in'the .meantime and'the notes would not be worth a centi for there was nothing back, of them to make them worth more than old paper. But I've wandered away from my subject, .1 was telling of selling some hogs In' Cincinnati. I sot what counted up over a .thousand dolars In money, face.value, •of--.these State bank- notes for 'that [bunch'of'hogs.' 1 spent about-' half : ;6f :the money In Cincinnati, stayed there 'four days, and wheffever I would give out one of those notes In payment of .a : bill, the merchant would take : out his ' 'detective' and see what Jhe not was ••worth For Jive hundred dollars face <JlUL>t V/U*ru J.\nj uojvi v^^v*b^ *»+«*••*.! i TTw*t.»if r . wish to settle the question of whlch.'ls.rvalue of--that:..currency I bought two the fastest, and a half-mile,.one'ihe»t hundred-and.tweuty-five-dollars worth " •- ••'•'• ..-•---.•—- of goods, andrbcfore I got home I trlei to- spend \some more .of It.and founi •that some. of.the banks had failed while I was doing my trading in Cincinnati and the bills were valuable The uivcrslde Cycle club • meeting last night was well attended npd-there was much interest manifested in the com lug races, to be held Thursday afternoon of thi.s week.
