WHOLE NO. 375 ISKVDU. 1 DOLLAR. GIVE US A TRIAL X MONEY. ... . . NO. 2. In my former communication it was iaid that . $1,600,000,000 at CO pounds to. the 1,000 vould we: 9,600,000 pounds. It should have been put 96,000,000 pounds. Simi lar!? 600,000 pounds should have been 6,000,000 pounds, and 9,000, 000 pounds should have been 90,.. 000,000 pounds. If a carload be estimated at 20, 000 pounds, it would require 4,500 cars to carry 90,000,000 pounds, making a tram so ne 20 or 25 miles long. The respective weights of the two metals will exercise an influence to wards determining the prefercnc3 for the one or th other metal. Other thiDgs being equal it has al ways been the tendency of commerce and trade to relieve itself of burdens, and to make the exchanging of pro ducts as easy and as little expensive asjwdible. Thi3 ha3 always been d"e in the interest of the producer, for according to the nature of things, the products of labor must bear the expense incurred in their handling. If a buyer has ten thous and dollars to spend in the purchase of cotton, and it costs him one hun dred dollars to ship the money to the place of purchase, he can pay only $9,900 for the cotton, in which case the producer eyidently pays the cost of transporting the ironey to the place of purchase. It makes no difference in what way the $100 paid, toe result is the same. The buyer would no doubt make the price of cotton such as to reimburse him for any expense incident to pur chasing and paying for the cotton, which would amount to the same thing as if he had paid the full ten JblSpd dallars for the cotton, and nthenTharged and withheld $100, ex peqse incurred in transporting and handling the money to pay for it I; is evident then that money should be portable, and other things being equal that metal which has the greater value and there' ore is the more easily carried, far a given amount, has the economic advantage ii its favor as a-circnlating medium, capability of being easily concealed or hidden is another element in con nection with portability that has a determining it fluehce in making a metal popular as money. Men dc not usually like to display the amount of money they have on their persons. They do not want it to be generally known that they have a large amount . of money in their houBea, to show that one has much money on his pen.on, or in his house would expose the party to the danger f of -being robbed, if not murdered T oivtum reaauu uiuuujr iub wiuui ,i)e easily concealed has never been popular, and until the hearts of men shall have become much improved b . ver will be. large pieces of metal with little value are not so easily concealed as small puces of another metal of greater value. The more valuable metal being the most easily concealed, other thingCljeing equal, will be preferred as a money me'al. Another quality of money is in destructibility. Metals that are not easily corroded or in any way easily destroyed ere the most desirable. Take iron for example, it is easily corroded, lhat is, it will rust and waste very ' easily. This property renders it less fit to be used as money than some other metals. Those metals. thrft are the least destructible are the IcEt adsp'ed. far mote;-. The ordeal by fire is another test, for the better qualities of a money material. Some metals undergo no less when exposed to fire. -Those metals are considered the best for keeping and are therefore the most desirable as mopey metals. '! Homogeneity is also a quality of a good money, metal. There is good iron nd bat iror, which-is another reason why iron is not a good metal to be used as a mecium of exchange. There are.other metals which are al ways the same, no matter in what quarter of the world they are found. Those metals being always one thing so far as the metallic q ?ality of good ness or badness is concerned have been found to be more suitable as money metals than other metals. Divisibility is also an essential qual ity of a money metal, that it is de sirable that the metal should be c p able of division into small denomi nations withtmt loss. It should be a metal that will suffer no loss at be ing cut into' parts. The parts put togather should be of the satm yalue as they were when separated, that ia, four quarters, or two halves should be worth just as much, neither more nor less than the piece that was di vided. Stability of Talaris, a very im portant element of moruj metal. The metal should be worth, a nearly as possible, as much at one season of the year, or rather one year as another. Any change in the yalue of the metal creates dis turbances that are far reaching, Change of value creates doubt and doubt In matters --of trade are always damaging to the commercial interests of. n country. Ifatiots hive devoted their best talent to the qnestien of s'ability ot value in the money metal to be used, ai d the present money of the more cnlight eied nations show the result. If i supposed better undirstanding cf the question ehall suggest change at any time in the future, either near or remot, a change will be made, otherwise not. The en lightened nations are interested in the stability of value of their money oetal whatever that ixetal may be. The metal that suffers the least variation of yalue from year to year, will nave the confidence cf men, and will be held in the highest steem. Another quality of a money metal i that it should bo known easily. In the ordinary ruBh cf business, men have not the time to examine every piece cf metal to ascertain its purity. The metal therefore should be Euch as to be easily recognized. Having stated the seven essential ualities which a material to be used as money should posse33, let us examine a little more closely than was done at the beginning what the functions of money are. The inconvenience that would occur of not having some one mate rial which every person is willing to receive for the products of labor which he possesses is no doubt evi dent to tne reader. Money reme dies this inconvenience by serving, (1) as a medium cf exchange, (2) as a common measure of value, (3) as a standard of value, (4) as a store of value. "in tne lirst form money is aims ply any co modity esteemed by all personB, any article of focd, clcth sg or ornsment which any person will readily receive, and which therefore every person desires to bare by him in greater or lees quan tity, in order that he may have the means of procuring necessaries of life at any time." Now if any ar ticle be selected and used for a con siderable time, it becomes common to estimate the worth of ether artU cles in quantities cf the selected one. Suppoee that corn was the chosen article, then any other com modity would be valued at so much corn. Ifce people would become accustomed to using corn in esti mating the value cf other articles, and woald therefore make corn the standard by which to measure the v.Iue of other commodities. It is in this way that money becomes a common measure of value, and by continued use as a common measure, it ultimately becomes a standard of value, when money acts is a medium f exchange it circulates backward ind forward, keeping near the same srots, and may sometimes return to the same hands. For example a farmer may Eell flour one day to a merchant, receiying the cash for it, and pay it to a laborer, who in turn may go to the merchant and pur j chase the same flour, and pny the same money for it. The merchant now has the same money he paid tbe farmer, holding it ready to pay j o the same or some other farmer for some product of the farm. This goes on eo long a the farmer, ! aborer, and merchant conclude to keep the money moving. If, how ever, in the course of time any one j of them desires to do eo, he may lay ops part to serve him on some fu ture occasion. When thus laid up, it is said to be a store of value. It ought to be clear that the material used as a store of value should be such as every person wants and snch as it is like y that all persons in the future will want. Wheat, corn, pota toes, cloth, and other perishable material would net serve the pi r pose, tltnough tiiamonds, jeweuy etc might do 83 under certain cir- cuma ances- Men do not always want to s. end their money as soon as they have made . it Many men like to keep some money about them to be need aj occasion may nq lire, and particularly to give them tht gjod feeling of being conscion thtt they have something which they are certain will serve tbem a good purpose at any time when their pleasure, conyenience, or. necessities shall require it. Such men are not always misers. In fact they are in the majority of ewes thrifty aLd far seeing, making use of the pros perous present to aid tbem in what ma? be a lees p osi-erous future. . The younger reader may receive help hereafter by remembering the following recapitulation : - Money serves as (1) a medium of exchange ; (2) a commcn measure oj value; (3) a standard of value; (4) a store of yalue. The qualities of a safe material to be used as money are (1) utility and value ; (2) portability ; (3) inde strnctibility ; (4) homogeneity; (5) divisibility , (6) stability of yalue ; (7) cogniz ability, Savignt. WAS IT A BALLOON? Noincthlnsr Tliat Attracted Attention A Religions EntnnslaMt If as Hys teric. Was it a balloon ? Thursday afternoon the attention of several hundred of our citizens j was drawn heavenward by the ap pearance cf something in the air sailing majesticly over the city in shape like unto a balloon. It was pure white when first seen, but soared higher and further, at times shining like crystal, then it would turn over and look black. Some parties with Held glasses claim to have soen a yolumn cf scioke rising from it and that it was Inhabited. It sailed in a northern direction, and was more than an hour in passing from over the city until it became invisible to the naked eye. The air ship was fol lowed by several young mjn with rifid?, who attempted to bring it to theeirth. Their efforts, however, proved fruitless. nue eager ana curious eyes were watcnia? the shin, an old clored woman, Marv HcManns. wno lives in the east end of the dtj aa(j wLo ia a reli,iou8 enthum ast, saw it, too. She claimed that it was Old Gabriel and that time was up that she was only awaiting the trumpet call. Just for fun a young man got noia or a drum corps bugle, went op into the new roller mill and blew it, which caused the woman to shout herself into bys terics, and it is said that she came near passing in her check Thursday nignt.
