BY HENRY S. POWARS.
While the ordinary person is more or
less familiar, through hearsay, with
the generally unstable character of the
circulating medium in the days before
and during the civil war, there are
comparatively few now living who
know from personal experience the in
conveniences that we old-timers met
with in this respect. Of course, condi
tions were not different in Rock Is
land from those in other parts of the
country, though in those days what
passed for money often had only n
local circulation, and so some of my
recollections bearing on this subject
may be of Interest.
Through the 40's and up to the close
of the war there was a good deal of
Spanish coin in circulation here. The
two-bit piece, worth 12 M cents, and
the picayune or "flp," worth cents,
were most common among fractional
currency. The two-bit piece passed for
25 cents so long as the pillars stamped
upon It remained distinct. When, how
ever, it became worn so those marks
were not distinguishable, a cross was
scratched upon the face with somo
The Field of
The September Strand Magazine.
The Strand Magazine for September
contains stories by two of the most
popular fiction writers of the day
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and W. W.
Jacobs. The former, entitled "The
Terror of Blue John Gap," is written
with the well-known author's cus
tomary tragic power while Mr. Ja
cob's story, "Watch Dogs," Is one
of the funniest yarns he has yet
written. Seven other stories are con
tributed by well-known Strand
writers. The articles are all on in
teresting topics. The editor suggests
an excellent method of celebrating
the approaching centenary of Charles
Dickens. In view of the fact that
many of the celebrated author's de
scendants are in comparatively poor
circumstances the Strand proposes
that the celebration should take the
form of a gigantic testimonial to
which the entire world might con
tribute. This might be carried out
by the publication of a two-cent
stamp which everyone who owns a
copy of Dickens might affix to the
volume. As the number of copies
of Dickens sold during the laBt 40
years or so exceed 25,000,000,
it will be seen that If the suggestion
were carried out successfully a large
sum would result which might be di
vided among'his poor relations. Oth
er articles In the September Strand
include "Fancy Diving for Women,"
by Serene Nord;"The Old Man," a
project for a novel newspaper; an
interesting account of the Nautical
almanac and a statistical article on
The September Wide World Maga
zine. From "Hippo Hunting on Lake
Nyassa" to "Sport in British Colum
bia," the September Wide World
magazine covers a tremendous
amount of territory In its articles
and stories. Charles F. Saunders
.relates his ' two weeks' experience
among the Navajo Indians; Douglas
Carruthers continues his "Adven
tures In Unknown Arabia," while . a
second article on "The Ruined Cities
of Yucatan" increases one's interest
in that mysterious part of the world.
Henry Hale tells the romantic story
of how an American boy became a
king. "A Hungarian Village Wed
ding" contains much to charm the
lover of romance and Is, moreover,
very attractively Illustrated. Mrs.
Maturln continues her "Caravan
Tour" and there are many stories of
adventure and hairbreadth escapes.
The Wide World maintains its repu
tation as a magazine of unique in
terest and educational value.
Popular Mechanics for September
Wings are a symbol of progress, and
it Is a good omen that human con
quest of the air has been true to
nature. Man's first attempts at flight
were like the fledgling's ludicrous,
cumbrous, and with a whirr of ma
chlnery remindful of the baby bird's
protest when first pushed out of the
nest by his ambitious parents. Lat
terly flight has assumed poise and
majesty, though still lacking some
thing In assurance, and involving
fearful sacrifice. "During the month
of July," says the 'September Popu
lar Mechanics, "no less than eight
lives were lost in aeroplane acci
dents." The same number of the
magazine contains a remarkable ar
ticle by Captain Richmond P. Hob
son on "The Aeroplane and the Bat

sharp instrument and thereafter the
coin passed for 20 cents.
There was much "rag" money in cir
culation bills that had little or noth
ing back of them to redeem them, and
they were accepted at a discount. So
common were they that it was neces
sary for business men to subscribe for
a periodical directory, printed for the
purpose of giving the latestratings of
the different issues. By means of this
publication it was possible for a mer
chant to take an accounting of his
stock of "money" and tell approxi
mately how much it was worth, a
thing which he could not otherwise do.
The manner in which the "rag" mon
ey came into circulation is shown by a
transaction that took place here in
Rock Island. The old banking firm,
composed of Isaac Negus, M. V. Os
born and William L. Lee. issued $40,000
worth of notes. They did not attempt
to circulate a dollar of -this here, but
sent it to Georgia and got a -similar
amount of notes issued by a bank in
that state. The Rock Island notes
were circulated in Georgia and the
Georgia notes here, neither .issue, of
his reasoning on natural laws, and
his deductions are interesting in the
extreme. "The aeroplane," he says,
"has come like the torpedo and the
submarine, but the battleship re
mains and will continue to remain
king, and will continue to grow in
size and power, ' and will continue
to determine the control of the sea
and the Issues of war, and the rise
and fall of nations and races."
The September number of Popular
Mechanics contains, all told, 229 ar

latter being page views or groups.

course, being redeemable outside of the
state in which it was issued. From
1855 to" 18C0 this country was flooded
with notes issued by a Florence, Kan.,
bank, and about the same time scri?
Issued by Burrows & Pettyman, well
known Davenport merchants, was cir
culated. Both the Florence notes and
the Davenport scrip were considered
good and were accepted at face value.
During war times even the poor cir
culating medium that was used here
before was scarce and merchants were
in. the habit of trading bits of paste
board "I O U's" in return for produce.
These bits of pasteboard read "Good
for one dollar," or whatever the sum
might be, and bore the name of the
issuing firm. They were accepted at
face value in trade by those who is-,
sued them and a failure to redeem them
was a confession of insolvency.
While speaking of money I am re
minded of an incident that occurred
some time in the 50's, I believe. Two
gamblers came to town and made their
brags that they were going to clean up
all the loose coin in the place. A cou
ple of Rock Islanders who,'' played a
rather stiff band took up the challenge
and put themselves in the way of be
coming victims of the visiting sharp-1
ers. One of the local citizens we may
call Mr. H. and the other Mr. C. Mr.
H. told me afterward they began play
ing on a Monday morning and kept at
the game with hardly a let-up for a
week, most of the time "having their
refreshments brought to the room
where the game was in progress. Fin
ally, after many shiftings of fortune,
the strangers were plucked clean and
left town penniless. Mr. H. told me
that the strain of that contest left its
effect with him for a long time, and at
one time he doubted he would ever re
cover. However, an iron constitution
helped him to pull through. In relating
the story to me, he said it was the last
time he tiuched a card.

The Central stations that supply' current to the home,

The biggest of these in the world, the Commonwealth

Its business has increased in the last twelve years

It supplies electricity at retail in an area of 200 square

the possible demand within that area. And Chicago is

Yet the retail service of the Company is only one-third of
its total business.
