The Trada Dollar. ,
One of the annoyances of business
men Js the "trade dollar," Pays the
Kansas City Star. A man will come
in hurriedly, make a purchase, and
throw down a disc of silver that looks
and rings like a dollar. After he is
gone the merchant finds a "trade dol-
ar" in his till, and it has a tendency
to make hira Irritable.
The trade dollar was a commercial
convenience when first coined, but it
s now a commercial nuisance. In 1873
the trade dollar was issued for pur
poses of trade with China and other
Asiatic countries. Before that time
Americans had been buying Mexican
dollars and shipping them to the
orientals in payment of merchandise.
The trade dollar was never intended
for circulation in this country, but
for exportation abroad. For five
years they were coined and largely
used. The act authorizing their coin
age repealed the act authorizing the
coinage of the standard dollar, thus
making them for a time the only dol
lar coins issued by the UnKed States.
The merchants might as well have
used silver bars for Eastern trade,
but it was thought that the stamp of
the government certifying that 420
grains of silver 900 fine would give
other countries greater confidence
than to use simple bars of silver un
stamped and uncertified. From
1873 to 1876 they were not legal ten
der, but it is the opinion of eminent
lawyers that the 15,000,000 already
coined were legal tender, while those
coined after 1876 were not. , Their
coinage was discontinued Feb. 22,
1878, up to which time there had
been 35.959.360 coined. The exact
value of the trade dollar now is 77
cents, although people get as much
more than that for them as they can
Feb. 19, 1887, an act was passed by
Congress authorizing the redemption
of trade dollars for six months, dollar
for dollar. At that time statisticians
estimated that there were about
9,000,000 in the country. As 7,089,
036 were redeemed it is probable that
there are not many now in the
United States, although they do not
command a premium as rarities.
Like all the other coins of value
the trade dollar has been counterfeit
ed, most of the counterfeits being
made of type metal and circulated in
China, Japan and the East Indies
The inhabitants of the East have
learned to be wary and watchfu
when handling coins that come from
the Occident. Most of of the trade
dollars that went to the Eastern
countries were melted and recoined
in the currency of the orient. The
trade dollar contains four more grains
of silver than the standard dollar,
nnrl has eieht one-thousandths the
less of alloy.

There is a great deal of talk among
dairyman about the animal odor in
milk. We have always noticed that
there was a great deal more of it in
winter than in summer. Perhaps
tho following from the Farming
World, of Edinburg, Scotland, will
throw some light on the subject;
"If one will test the milk of cows
kept in filthy barns, and upon whose
sides filth i3 permitted to collect in
adherent flakes, in this way,the fouN
ness will be very apparent. This
oder has been called sometimes the
-nimal odor, and has been thought to
be inseparable from a cow. This is
wholly untrue. It is the odor of filth
which has every characteristic of ma
nure, and which is discharged with
the milk because it could not escape
through the skin, which is the natur
al outlet for it, and by which it
would escape freely and impercepti
bly if the skin were kept clean and in
heathful action by means of thorough
grooming every clay."
Good ventilation of stables will
help in the matter.

THE MAGICIAN HERRMANN RELATES
SOME OF HIS IMPRESSIONS.
An Entertainmeat f HU WaiUra
Friends Tha Famed Jugglers Beneath
Contempt Marvelous Feats of Snake
Charming The Fakirs Puasled Even
Herrmann, who is a delightful talker,
entertained a few friends in Omaha with
some of his experiences in India, which
may prove interesting reading.
Naturally on his first visit to India
Herrmann was curious to Bee something
of the famous jug0lersof whom travelers
have told such marvelous tales. He went
out of his way to meet any famous per
former who could only be reached in that
manner, and the result wan that between
the time he landed at Calcutta and tha
time he embarked at Bombay he had wit
nessed about everything of note in the
juggling line that the country afforded.
The opinion he formed after securing
all they could show him was that, apart
from their skill as snake charmers, in the
basket trick, and one or two other illu
sions, the ability of the entire fraternity
of Indian jugglers is beneath contempt.
"I had heard a great deal about the
wonderful mango trick," said this mod
ern Merlin, "in which the native jugglers
were said to plant a mango seed in the
earth, whence it would be seen to sprout
and gradually grow into a full size mango
tree, blossom, and ripen fruit in full view
of the spectators.
"They further declared that the fruit
would be handed around to whomever
cared to taste it Stories to this effect
had been told by so many travelers of
repute that I really expected to find some
merit in the trick. At Allahabad, Cawn
pore, Lucknow, Delhi, and Bombay I saw
native jugglers who did the trick, and
each time they performed it precisely as
follows : The fakirs, usually five or six in
number, would squat on the ground and
the spokesman would ask the spectators
to select a spot of earth On which they
desired the tnck to be performed. This
being done, he would pick up the earth
with a small pointed instrument in order
to make a soft spot; then putting up a
skeleton frame of tripod shape he would
throw a shawl or cloth (without which
the fakir would be like a ship without a
rudder) over it, bo as to make a sort of tent.
One of the conjurers, wearing a long
robe with side sleeves, would then pro
duce a mango Beed, and placing both
hands and arms under the improvised
tent would plant the seed, his hands and
arms being out of sight under the tent
during the operation. His comrades
would then perform some simple tricks
with cups, balls, etc., after which the
cover over the tripod would be removed
nnd a small sprout would be 6een in the
Eide of the mango seed.
"When the cover was again thrown
over the tripod the fellow with the long
Bleevcs would once more put his arms
under the tent so formed. After another
interval of three or four minutes the
cover would be again removed and there
would be seen a branch of tho maugo
tree about two feet in height, bearing a
few mangoes, Borne green, others ripe.
"Tho secret of this trick is very simplo
nnd bo shallow that it requires little ex
planation. The man who placed his
hands under the cover first inserted the
sprout in the seed, and the next time he
drew from his ample sleeves a branch cut
from a neighboring mango tree and
thrust the cut end into the earth, which
had previously been softened. "
Some one then asked Herrmann if he had
ever seen the trick performed of throwing
a ball of twine in the air to form a sort os
Jack-and-the-bean-stock, up which the
juggler climbed out of sight, pulling the
string after him, and that the pistol shot
of a companion conjurer brought the
aerial climber to the earth in fragments,
which, when brought together, became a
living, uninjured man again.
"No, I never saw that trick," replied
Herrmann, "and the people who believe
it can be done must have their brains
steeped in hasheesh. You hear of this
trick in India, but somehow I never was
able to find a conjurer who would at
tempt it. Most of the wonders attributed
to Oriental jugglers have never existed
outside of the imaginations of those who
"The feats of snake charming, how
ever, are marvelous, and, if tricks, they
utterly defy detection. When I was at
Allahabad a fellow came into my room
with nothing on but a breech clout ana
Raid: 'Plenty big snake here, Sahib,
ricnty big snake in the room.' I told
him to gooff; that I had seen all his
snake tricks, and did not want to be
bothered, but ho insisted upon it that
there were plenty of snakes in the room,
so I told him to go ahead and call them
out if there were any.
"lie stood up in the middle of the room
and began to play on a sort of Mute he
bad with him. Now, mind you, their,
was no furniture in the room but acn;

"In an uuitant I saw other makes crawl
ing from all corners of the apartment and
they placed themselves alongside their
companion. The fakir, still playing on
his flute, led the way to the door and thu
snakes followed him. He paused at the
threshold and they reared their heads in
anger. Just as I was beginning to get
nervous another fakir crept up behind
them and cut their heads off with a sharp
sword which he carried.
"Now I have no other explanation for
this trick than that the snakes were
trained to wind themselves around th
bodies of the men underneath the breed)
clout When they entered my apartment
my attention was attracted to the spoken-
man, not to his companion, and he might
have placed the snakes in the room while
I was watching the flute player. This is
my only explanation. "Edgar C. Sny
