The yalue of a dollar, as Borne one
has said, is the unknown amount of
attraction existing between the mind
and 412 grains of silver or 25 8
grains of gold, each metal ninetentbs
fine. As a chemist would say it is
the affinity existing between the
mind and tbe pieces of metal. If
A's mindXaa a greater affinity for
B'a hat than it has for A's dollar,
and B's mind has a greater affinity
for A's dollar than it has for the hat,
A's dollar will fly to B, and B's hat
will fly to A. If. C's mind has
greater affinity for the druggist's
r!ass c soda water than it has for
tive cents, c.c re? druggists' mind
has a greater atHnity for the-live
ccts tk it hs.i for the gods water,

TEr-.od: ies having the

will uciti either permanently or
temporarily ;,cccrd'v g to the force of
attraction which ciaws and binds
them tegethtr.
Now uiilliocB of minds and mil
lions of r-oifiiaodities are constantly
attracting one another. Money and
ctber commodities are' kept going
from one person to another until
they finally arriyejn hands by which
they are more or" less firmly held.
This moving of money is called cir
culation and possesses many features
that are extremely interesting. The
idea of motion is intimately connect-
ed wi h that of circulation. If the
movement of money be swift it is
said that the circulation is rapid. If
th movement is slow, then the cir
culation is said to be slew. If a
hundred dollars move with the ve
locity or rapidity 10, it will do as
much work as a thousand dollars
moving with a velocity or rapidity 1.
That is to Bay a hundred dollars
circulating ten limes as fast as a
thousand dollars will accomplish
the same amount of work. This is
illustrated by what are called good
times and bad times. During the
former business is active, money
circulates freely, whilst during tl a
latter, business is dull and money
moves slowly or not at all, j
The motive power behind circula
tion iB confidence. When met "are

take, hold. Will an investment
pay, is the first question the cau
tious business man asks, himself bo-
ore" engaging in any speculative or
other enterprise.
It should be observed that it is
not the confidence of the reckless

case the usit was an ounce, whereas
before it had been a pound or twelve
ounees Of course yalues were sot
increased. Dividing a pound of
sugar into twelve equal ports does
not increase the quan'ity of sugar,
Bat if yalues did not increase, as we
won Td" say, the number of dollars
did. By a simple act of govern
nent one dollar became twelve dol
lars. A Roman who was worth one
thousand dollars was suddenly en
riched to the amount of twelye
thousand dollars. The pound of
copper had felt the magic powei of
the legislator, and was suddenly
transformed into twelye pounds,
Copper was the money. Tbe As or
Pondo was the unit. It originally
weighed one jound. When it waB
divided into twelve equal parts eseh
part was still called an As or Pondo,
All this no doubt looks very
pretty, but let us remember that the
act of the legislator did not save cop
per which ultimately lud to give
way to silver, 8Dd what is of greater
interest to ub. the act did not save
Rome. The great Republic fell, and
the liberties of tbe reople buried in

How much the change of standard
of money had to do towards hasten
ing the downfall of the mighty Re
public it may be impossible, to. say,
but that it contributed its share,
whatever that share was can.
not be doubted. The reckless
speculation that would naturally
follow such a speedy rise of prices,
no doubt contributed to the ultimate
result more than we would be will
ing to admit.
Now, it is one of the attending re
suits of high priceB that, where a
credit system prevails, the amount of
debt is correspondingly increased
with high prioes, a hundred dclhsr
d-bt is more easily and qnickly made
than with low prices, wm n thd renc
tion comes, r. hich must come, the
people are caught more largely in
debt, than if prices had been low.
Their downfall is more sweeping, and
their ultimate recovery more hope
leBS. What is wanted is not change,
but invariability of standard.
It should be kept in mind always
that the change cf standard is not so
much a change of the material which
forms the standat d as of the yalue
of the material. The standard of
value is not a material something,
bat the yalue of a materi.il some
thing. Material can no more meas
ure value, than a yardstick can meas
ure bushels of wheat. If a note be
giyea for one hundred dollars, the
number of dollars is a fixed and. de
finite quantity, but the value of the
dollars may change, and wiil change
if the standard by.which it is, meas
ured keeps changing, and since notes
are given as promises to pay numbers
of dollars and not values of dollars,
it follows that whilst the number of
dollars to be pa d and received re
mains thv same. Their value mat
be gi enter or less at tbe time of
settlement than it was at the time
,tte note'wds givSn, If the value of
che dollars increases ttuii the debtor
will be wronged, but if the value de
creases the creditor wiil be wronged
It is to prevent this wronging of
either party to the contract, that has
caused the most enlightened nations
to seek that standard, wbichhas .the
greatest stability of value. A contract
neing made to py dollars and not
to pay value of the dollars, it is very
evident, that any rise or fall in . the
value of the money, has no effect on
the agreement to pay dollars. The
agreement being to pay dollars, dol
lars tnuBt be paid regardless' of any
change of yalu9 that may have taken
place since the contract wastaade.lt
is for this reason that, shrewed busi

In chapter 425 of the public laws
of North Carolina, session of 1 895
there is a clause in section 2 of that
chapter that preventa the trial of
any criminal cases in tbe superior
courts of Gaston and Stanly coun
ties. 1 Mecklenburg has a criminal
court, and of course thia law cuts
no figure in that county,
Prom the law as it reads, takes all
nrisdiotion in criminal cases from
Jthe superior courts of said counties
In the following we produce the law
as printed and sent out, under the
caption of "An act to change the
time of holding the courts of Gaston,
Stanly and Mecklenburg counties"
found in the above stated chapter :
"The General Assembly of North
Carolina do enact :
oeciion i. "inat the superior
courts of the counties of Gaston.
staniy ana Mecklenburg Bhall be
held at the times hereinafter deeig'
nated and shall continue for the
time hereinafter provided, unless the
business be sooner disposed of.
Sec. 2."The superior courts of said
counties shall be held at the follow
ing timea, to wit : Stanly, flrat Mon
day in March, first Monday in Sep

the fourth Monday after the first
Monday in September, each to con
tinue two weeks, sixth Monday be
fore the first Monday in March, and
the thirteenth Monday after the
first Monday in March, each to con
tinue one week, All of said terms
shall be tor the trial of civil causes
alone, and the last mentioned teim
shall be for the trial of such causes
as do not require a jury. Civil pro
cess may be returnable to all of said
terms.
Sec. 3. "That all laws and clauses
of laws in conflict with this act are
hereby repealed.
Sec. 4. "That thia act ahall be in

The question now arises, what will

Over night and next diy found that
the grasshoppers had partly eaten
them, utterly ruining hem,
"That's pretty good," said the
gentleman, "but they beat that in
Texas. Last year some railroad ran
a line of cars through Texas all
painted green, and when the train
stopped at the first station in the
grassnopper country, the grass
hoppers lit on the cars and ate them
clean down to the wheels."
Thia story is good but the cock
roaches, or whatever you call these
guilty conseienoe insects that tear off
in auch confusion of face whenever
you discover them, are almost as bad
aa the grasshoppers. They have
have eaten all the lunch baskets of

In speaking of bugs and appetites,
the above is a yery good production
of facts, but at a certain home "in
this city the chinch or bed-bugs have
such ravenous appetites that they
haye during the past two wesks eaten
three paiis of Bocks off the feet of
one man and in the past two nights
they have sucked the blood out of
Lowe's dummy, which waa pat in
the sockless man's place.

The Crowd Sot Over 1,000,
Everybody who : took particular
note and who are good estimates of
the size of crowds, puts the number
of out-of-town people present TueB
day at not over 1,000. And not
three-fourths of these attended the
speaking. The crowd , that heard
Tillman was not over 750 and the
crowd that heard Butler was sev
eral hundred leas, for very many
left when he bobbed up his bullet
head full of hair.
The Observer man made a meat
awful wild guess when h. put the
crowd at between 2,500 and 3,000.
This estimate ticklea Marion Butler
and he used it.

again caught . gaming. . The two
games are quite fashionable of late,
here and elsewhere.
