Terms Applied to Coins and Bank
Notes in England.
4,We may think there is a great deal
of slang in English as we commonly
use it in this country." Mr. J. E. Sora
ghan observes, but in at least out re
spect the colloquial tongue of England
surpasses the wealth of terms we pos
sess in this regard, and that Is the
slang relating to money. The American
uses astonishingly few slang words in
speaking of pieces of money, perhaps
because he has a greater respect for It.
A live cent piece is usually referred to
as a nickel, but this Is practically the
only slang term applied to ilfcr of our
money in general use. A dime Is offi
cially a dime, and so Is a quarter.
"But turn to the English appellations
for their niont y and hardly n bit of it
is referred to under its authorized and
oiiicial designation. A shilling is seldom
called such in London. They call it u
bob.' and a 'quid,' which means a piece
of tobacco in this country, is what they
term a pound. Sixpence they call u
tanner,' fourpeuce a 'Joey' and a penny
more often than not is unknown to the
street gamins save as a 'mag.' A cab
man will not tell you a ride will cost
5 shillings, but that it will require a
bull' to pay for it. and u half crown is
'half a bull.' These are prevailing ex
pressions for the pieces of money wide
ly handled, but proper terms for higher
amounts are kicked itside and collo
ijuial terms substituted for them.
"At a race truck if u bettor says he
has ventured a 'pony' on the probable
outcome of a race he does not mean
that as it would appear to us, but sim-plj-
that he has wagered 2." on the re
sult. Where money is handled in large
amounts it is not an infrequent thing
to hear one say of another that he has
a 'monkey' of money, meaning that the
individual referred to is the proud pos
sessor of 500. So you see in compari
son with this plethora of riches our
lone nickel is a poor crop of monetary
slang indeed." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

ducts a second hand store at Third
avenue and Seventeenth street. The
bolt was very heavily charged with
electricity and tore the staff to pieces.
Third avenue was strewn with splin
ters from the size of a toothpick to a
length of several feet. One piece of
the pole, three feet in length, was
hurled across the street, and barely
missed one of the plate glass windows
in the Dewend-Kuschman furniture
store. Another large piece fully four
feet was carried onto the front porch
of Oloff Olson, who resides at 1714 Sec

completely destroyed. It is built up
on the side of the house, and at tho
