The Bext five Sections of the Act provide for
two methods by which the silver is circulation
was to be reduced in volame and replaced with
United States gold.
In the first place, by force of the first part
of Section 3, immediately oa the approval of
this Act, that a, frees and after the 17th day
of Jaly, before the 1st of December, the time
when the Ac: in other respects went into effect,
the Minister of Finance was repaired to exchange,
daring sixty days after a notice to this
parport, silver coins of all Batioealhies excepting
those of the United States asd of Hawaii,
for Hawaiian coin, dollar tor dollar. If the
entire psblic had availed itself of this provision,
it is appareat that all the heterogeneous
silver in circulation woaM have Sowed into
the Treasury and no silver coins rersaiced in
circulation bet those of the United States and of
Hawaii. This action was required to be taken
immediately on the passage of the Act.
The last part of Section 5 reqaircs the Minister
of Finance to arraage for the sale of the
beteroceneoos sdver lass received and all sil
ver coins then in the Treasury, except Hawaii
an corns, and lae .delivery ot tneir proceeds
iato the Treasary gold coins of the United
Sectioa 6 mites farther provision to enable
persons whose tenders for the pcrchase of the
silver coins mentioned is Section 5 were accepted,
to deposit Government Boods as secu
rity for the delivery of the gold proceeds of
tse sale. Section enacts that the loss incident
to the conversion of silver into gold shall
be borne by the Treasury.
Now Sectioe 1, althoegh appearing in the
Act earner loan sections 5 and 6, would be
come operative after the act of calling in the
neteroceBeoas silver bad been accomplished
and might natarally have come later in the Act
than Sectioss S and S. Bat we presume it
was placed thas early in the Act as it has a
permanent force and effect. It reads as follows:
"Whenever it shall appear, that there is
sach an excess of stiver coins is circulation as
distarbs the eqaHibriam between rold and
silver cotsa under the provisions of this Act,
the Minister of Finance, in order to restore
sach eqatlibriam, shall replace sufideot silrer
coin from any silver cota which may be in the
.treasury, as txoveraeent realization or on de.
posit on accoent of any silver certificates, with
gold coins or the Lmted States in the sane
manner as hereafter provided in Sections 5, 6
and i ot Uos Act-"
To state it more folly : Whenever (that is,
at any time in the fatare) it shall appear that
there is sach an excess of silver coin in circulation,
(that is, is General drcalatkn is the
comaiunity) as distarbs the equilibrium be
tween gota ana silver cotes nnder the provisions
of this Act, (that it. whenever there is
more silver in circulation than will sorace for
the payment of debts of ten dollars or less in
amoast,) the Minister of Finance is renaired
to replace silver coin in the Treasary ssScient
ic amount to restore the equilibrium, (whether
uns stiver corn lays in tie Treasary a3 the
general foods of the Government or is there on
deposit to meet silver certificates with gold
coins of the United States. The Act also savs
that the method is effecting this is to be that
prescribed in Sections 5, 6 and 7 of the Act.
That is to say, the Miwter of Finance mast
arrange through advertisement for tenders for
the sale of this silver coin in lots of not more
than $a4,W4 each. It is to be noticed that
Section i confers a power to replace silver
coin? with gold coins, which is to be invcted

''I remember a Trcrtderf ul case as came
.nader personal obeerralion when 1
vfus HrsTvlin" in East Tencssee. 1
struck oca ol them little mountain towns
oco tine vrhea they ttuz holding connty
court. Every man had a bottle of moonshine,
and they wm all feelin' mighty
happy. Finally they got a lectle bit too
hilarious, and a fight sprang up betwixt
a great big driller and a leetle bit ot a
wiry feller. Thobig duffer could 'a eat
the littla feller up, clothes and aE, but the
first thing he done was to pull out one of
these old pot-metal knives and jab the
blade into the leetle feller's neck It
vrent in right alongside the jugular, and
then it bent kinder round and under it.
Yhen tie big feller went to pull it out ho
ripped the leetle feller's jugular right into,
and you oughter seed the blood ny. It
squirted about twenty-five feet. As the
leetle feller dropped everybody in the
crowd cried, fJhhe's a goner; his jugular
vein's cut,' and they expected to see him
croak inside of three seconds, but there
was one of them mountain doctors there,
and to look at him you'd think he didn't
know a jugular rein from a trombone.
'Stand back' said he: 'gyre me a chance
at him,' and he elbowed nis way through
the crowd to where the leetle feller lay
breathin' his last. He pulled out of his
pocket somethin' as looked like a crooked
uamin' needle, and then he fished around
in the wound until he caught hold of both
ends of the jugular Tein and pulled 'em
out. Then he tied the ends tight with a
piece of thread to keep the blood from
squirtin' out until an old feller in the
crowd whittled down an old pipe-stem
to make it fit in the jugular. When it
was shaved down small enough the old
doctor inserted the pipe stem and tied the
ends of the rein tight around it- In less
than two minutes that leetle feller was on
his feet and looking round for the feller
that cut him.
You mean to say he recovered V
u Course he did, and you'll find the case
recorded in the medical works. Only case
of tha kind eTer heard of in America."
"And the pipe-stem never bothered
uXo; only it made him sick at the
stomach, at first. The stem was a good
deal stronger than the kind he had been
used to handlin', and it made him a leetle
bit dizzy for a few days." Ltxittttlt Commercial.
A smart, pithy or humorous definition
of ten furnishes a happy illustration oMhe
proverbial brevity wmch'isthe soul of wit.

from another juvenile source, is u a thing

and went to sleep."
A school boy asked to define the word
"sob" whimpered out: "It means when
a feller don't mean to cry and it bursts
out itself." A youngster was asked to
give his idea of the meaning of 'responsibility."
so he said : 'Well, suppocing I had
only two buttons on my trousers, and one
came off, all the responsibility would rest
on the other button."
To hit off a jury as "a body of men organized
to find out which side has the
smartest lawyers," is to satirize manyof
our intelligent fellow-countrymen." The
word ususpicion" is, in the opinion ot a
jealous husband, "a feeling that compels
