A study of thr- growth of money may be useful just now in order to give a .more definite idea of exactly what money is, and to learn why certain articles or substances have been discarded and others retained. The 'natural imd general tendency well understood, we have only to judge'tho future by past experience to predict what will and what will not be the principal money metal of the near future. Hunting and Flrthlng Staco. Tbo kind of money in use in maijy countries indicates tho degree of civilization attained. Man probably first became a trnding aniical in the hunting and fishing stage. Weapons of war aaid the chase, together with skins and furs, vere then the most important kinds oi property. Hence we find that tho more useful, stable and portable of these articles were first used as money and arc so used to-day in barbarous countries. Eeaver skins, or "beaver," was the •unit of value when our forefathers traded with the Indians. Thus one benver equals one brass kettle; one beaver equals two shillings; six beavers equal one gallon brandy, etc. Fishhooks formed the currency on the. northern shores of tho Indian, ocean from Persia to Ceylon.

Wampum was the currency of the more civilized, Indian tribes in New England and I/OTig 1 Island. It consisted of white beads, inadc from the ends of a perhvinlde shell or black beads made from a clam sh'.'ll nrrans-ed in strings or belts. It became the ofiiciail money in Xew England nnd New Amsterdam and lost its place ;is money between 1650 and 1700, when the "Smart Alecks" among the whites began to debase it by leaving the beads unpolished or unpierccd or by making them of bone, horn, glass, and even of wood. The colonists legislated much trying to fix prices, and to eave wampum from declining in value, but it was being produced too cheapl3'. Natural law was against it, and it had to go down. The use of sheJls! as money is still common on many tropical coasts. Their wide use is probably due to the strong passion, common to primitive man, for personal adornment. This gives shells a permanent value. Eesides.they are very durable, comparatively light, and are convenient for smoJl change. Whales' teeth, arrowheads, beads, tusks of ivory and engraved stones are some of the ather money materials of this later stage of civilization.' The Paatoral Stage. Man early tamed the domestic animals. The sheep and the cow being the most useful, they naturally, with their skins (and sometimes with their milk) formed the currency and the unit of value. Our words fee, pecuniar y a n d capital come from the use of Similar words in nearly every language testify to the once general use of cows and sheep as money. A man's wealth was estimated >y his herds and flocks. It was in this stage that confliierors stopped eating captives because it was Jiscovered : that they were worth more as .shepherds and carriers of water, wood, etc. Hence also slaves often figured as money.. Agricultural Stage. In tho agricultural stage man owns nnd, has fixed 'habitations and is pos- essed of a far:greater variety of pros- lerity than "when he was a nomad. Though he continued to use. cattle, laves, etc., as money, yet he sometimes added staple farm products and began o use metals, especially copper and ;old, which at first were usually esti- nated in terms of cattle and were measured roughly instead of being weighed. Wheat, barley and oats ore now, as hey have been for 3,000 years, a rnedi- .um of exchange in Norway and other remote parts of Europe. Maize, or Indian corn.onceformed the. currency of .Mexico, Central America and someof the early colonies. Tobacco formed tho principal 'money of Virginia and Maryland. It was leg al tender in Maryland in 1732. The price, of. wives varied from 100 to 150 pounds of tobacco. Dried codfish was once currency in Newfoundland. Sugar, rum, ginger,, olive oil", eggs, indigo and molasses are some of the products that have been used in different countries. The friends of tobacco and'corn tried hard to prevent these "crimes against humanity," but the copper,: gold and silver bug conspirators came..out on .top in spite..of; special-legislation :ln the, interest of tobacco.and corn. This was a hard blow to our.country. There Is plenty of tobacco,' corn, eggs and molasses to give us nil the "per cnpita" •wecould carry it if thecrimeof demone- tization-had not be.en committed against them, thereby .causing prices of these nnd other articles/except the precious metals to fall precipitately;Economists tell us that these articles ceased to be used as mone3' because -they.

CONSTIPATION SHOULD not be regarded ai a trilling ailment—In fact, nature demands the utmost rej"' v « r , lt y of the bowels, and nny aevlation from this demand paves the way often to serious danger. It is quite as necessary to remove impure accumulations from the bowel* as it is to enl or sleep, and no health can be expected where a costive habit of body prevail*. SICK HEADACHE I This distressing affliction occurs most frequently.

They say that some wcri; perishable; others bulky nnd hard to transport; ethers could not be easily divided for the purpose of waking change; others were not uniform in size and quality, while nearly all lacked stability of value. But every tobacco, corn, molasses or egg producer and every lover of the weed, of omelets or of johnny cake and sorghum knows that they were' demonetized because they were so plentiful that the Siylocks could not monopolize them as easily as they could the precious metals. : HannfactorlnK Stage, . The manufacturing stage is not clearly defined. Hoes were once money in China and they are to-day in Anam. Little hoes, such as the one here figured, took the place oi real hoes and became true money. Hand - made" noils once circulated as money in B o m e Scotch villages. Some of the oUier money articles that may perhaps belong to this stage are cotton cloth, straw hats, cubes of salt, tea, beeswax, knives and silk cloth. It was probably in this stage that the precious metals began to be measured and weighed'more accurately and to be cast into standard forms. •Commercial StRRe, 1. INTEBJTAI. TRADE.—When men began to live in cities, to have • regular markets where products were exchanged, and to have shopkespers or merchants and professional traders, there was a great need of a more exact and scientific money such as could be supplied only 'by the metals. These }»• gan to be cast or stamped into the regular forms, .sizes or weights. Bronae bars ond stamped bronze pieces were used in Greece and Italy, The bronze piece here represented shows the evolution from cattle money-to stamped metallic money. Weights in the form of. sheep indicate that sheep were . in Biblical times the unit of value in Palestine. Iron was used, as "money in. Sparta. Pieces of bent irim ready for the blacksmith pass, as money, in west Africa and elsewhere. . "Cash" or "sapeks" or "le" is the onty native coin and the only legal tender of China as well as the principal, money of small accounts. Cash consists' of round disks of a kind of brass with a square hole In .the center. The evolution government stiirnp to gtmrnhtee weigh nnd nnencss.

T.NTEHXATJOTJAI, TltADE. — Wbci trade became international, there wa still greater need for the most accurati nnd reliable counters oC value possible Uenl coinage began when government* first guaranteed weight ancl.finenes: with ;in official stamp. A great par of this immense gain to commerce nnd civilization was lost when, after awhile, monarchs began to abuse this coining privilege and to break fnit] with their subjects by stamping ligh' weight or otherwise debased coins Of genuine. Such coins would continue in, use, but would soon depreciate in value Figure 14 represents one-of the earliest silver coins. It was struck.in Rome about 300 B. C. Gold was coined in Rome in 200 B. C Figure 35 shows the gold solidus ol Jnfian IT. The solidus weighed four scruples from 312 A, D. to 1-153 and formed the basis of more modern European coins. The florin, coined in Florence in the fourteenth century, was the flrst regular coin of western Europe. It soon became the recognized unit of value in commerce and was replaced only by the English sovereign, which has since remained the standard unitof value for international trade. The commercial world has chosen gold as money because, all thir.gs con- ridererl, it is bettor,fitted for this purpose than r.r.y other metal or substance. It ewes its position entirely to its intrinsic worth. It hns needed no special • legislation to sustain it, nor has the almost vmlirintcrl special legislation in t-he lntere.--t nf =:lver and other metals and Etibstuncf.s been able to make them "as good as gold" in any modern civilized country.

' If we borrow 5t, we want that kind of money which, will go farthest, for sowe can pet along, with a smaller loan. Therefore a gold dollar is better to borrow than a sixteen to one silver dollar. . If we are to secure it by gift, certainly ive should hot depreciate that which wo are about to receive. This brings ua to the e,- which is the way most money is obtained. A pertinent question for each of us to ask at . tWa. time is: • .Wliat.ha.ve I got to trade 'for. money., which I want? Itmay.be labor; it roay be n Jiprse or cow; it may 'be lumber 'or shingles; it may be a sawmill. At the present time we can trade any of the above and get a gold.dollar for every dollar's worth of value; as may ;be agreed upon between buyer and seller. We.-can get a .dollar which is worth a dollar anywheire and everywhere. , . ,'Xpw, your labor or horse or cow or lumber or machinery will be worth just as much, or nearly as much, next year us it is this, but if we have free coinage at sixteen to'one will.'the dollar which you get ia.trade be worth as .much as the dollar you can get now? What •will that be worth? Can you tell? It may be worth 53 cents or more .or less. One day this, one day that, but .con. a.ny one tell ? These are all pertinent questions, aud, when carrfully considered, must g-uide us in voting at the next election In November, and do not lose sight of the fact ttiat if alj tie silver in the world is * imeti. into money you canno'Jge'ua cent t.f it except by ^ b, c, d or e, above referred to.—Lumber Trade Journal. Doable Standard Mapln Hnemr. .The Mohawk valley was settled by the Dutch, us your readers fcnow. When, the country was new, Yankee peddlers came through the settlements and purchased the cropof maple sugar. Oii one occasion a:green .Dutchman sold a Yankee Tifs maple'sugar .Far .below the market pric'e,.aDd his neighbors teased him for being deceived. He .said, in reply: "You vaitand I will vix him next, year." The next spring he sold his crop of sugar to the same Yankee at the same price. When his neighbors railed .him, he said: "I am no fool. I made the sap that sugar was made from of half spring water." The green Dutch farmer -had just as much common sense as those cranks.who assert that 50 cents'. worth of silver nnd an 'equal amount of water will make a dollar worth 100'cents in gold at the present standard.—N: ; Y.

A hasty examination bad- been made of the Dustle by those cleanr ing up the apartments and nothing un-- : usual was noticed in its make-up. Th* servants at the Ocean View were ntodt- to remove the old clothes and rubbwh that had been thrown into the barrel, when it occurred to one of them -that. the bustle looked n. little queer anfl the. . covering was torn from the wires and' cords.
