pound is a very small quantity.
Also, if the 3711 graina be divided
into fourths of a grain, it will be
found to contain just 1485 of these
exceeding small fourths, the value
ot each ot which was the 1485th
part of a dollar, about the fifteenth
part of a cent. So particular were
our forefathers they would not have
so much as the error of a cent.
They worked until they . got within
a half cent of the mark, and if
there were any among them a little
weak in the honest religion of the
heart, they no doubt thought that to
bo within half a cent would be near
enough. But' the majority did not
think half a cent -near enough, so
they worked op till they got within
the tenth of a cent, but still the ma
jority said we must get nearer if we
can. It will not do to wrong any
man, be he rich or poor, out of even
the tenth of a cent They did not

physicians, who treated me, called a
cancer, assuring mo that nothing
could be done to save my life. As
a last resort, I was induced to try
Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and, after tak
ing a number of bottles, the soro
concluded that that was as near the
true number ai honest men could
get. Accoidiugly tliey recommended
3711 grains, and it Wac adopted for

To most men 371 grams may seem
near enough, but our forefathers
were so particular tbat they wanted
tojget nearer. They knew that it
was very important to have the num

"Many numbers such as 200, 300,
400, etc., would have been, much
more convenient. But it was net a
matter of convenience. It was a

one-fourth of the grain our fore
fathers put to the 371. Now divide
