A Washington lettcr-wrlter lias lind
an intervlcw wlth tlio Uniteil Stutw
trertsurer in regurd to tho final dls
position of wornout notes sent to tho
trensurjf department for redemption.
Tho correspondcnt nskcd:

" You used to burn it.did you not?"
" Yes, but the prcsent system was

"Not nccpssnrily. Most of them
aro redeemed witli new greenbacks,
cxcept whero gold, silver or New York
exchango is askeil for; but as to do
noinination!, wo usuallygive whatever
is nskcd for. '
Of greenbacks and gold and silver
notes tliero had becn reileemed tliis
vcar up to date 108,000,000, of na
ti mal b:ink notes, $72,000,000 had been
sent in for redemption, and $10,000,000
of the lot had been decided " fit" for
circulation and sent out again.
Of tho uirrency thus redeemed, ono
dollar notes form a very Jarge propor
tion. They aro worn out l'aster than
any of the other bills, in spite of tho
fact that the silver dollar is constantly
being thrust forward in tho vain at
tempt to mii'ie it take tho placo of tho
greenback d illar. In tho redeinplions
liist year of tho greenbacks alono thero
wore $!VJGS,0l)0 in ono-dollar bills re
deemed and destroyed, 4,010,000 two
dollar bills, 3,514,0J0 five-dollar bills
and 1,380,0 )0 ten-dollar bills. The lif 0
tho dollar greenback anpears to bo
very brief. Of tho 20,000,003 one
dollar notes issued betwoen 1875 and
1879, known as tho " issue of 1875,"'
25,000,0110 havo come back torn and
r;tg?ed and dirty, and been redeemed
with others, bright and new and crisp.
Yet of tho 230,000 ten-dollar bills of
the same lot issued at tho samo tinio
not half had yet come ba k at last ac
counts. Of tho "is?ue of 1878," which
still continues, 10,000,000 of tho 13,
000,000 ono-dollar bills havo coino
back, soinc of them scarcely a year old.
Of tho "issue of 1SS0," which began
threo years ago, but is still running,
4,000,000 of tho one-dollar l'ellows
camo back used up in the flrat two
vears. The ten-dollar bills aro much
longer-lived. Of 158,000 ten-dollsr
notes is ned between 1880 and 1S8-,
only 10,000 came back during those
two years, or about six pcr C(nt. of
tho wholo nuiiiber issupd, whilo of tlio
one-dollar bills of tho samo is-sue
nearly twenty per rent. came back in
the saine time. The total amount of
gr 'enbacks and other governmcnt ol

redeemed and destroyed sinco tho
b'ginning of theissuo of these obliga

eight times tho amount now outst.uid
iug, and nearly four times as much as
was ailo.it in 1805, when tho largeit
ciuantitv of this sort of obligations
($098,000,000) was in circulation. A
great deal of this money that has been
is3iied by the government in the post
twenty-two years has never como
back for redemption, and will never
come back. Tljo government is gainer
millions upon millions of dollars in
this way. It is cstimated by tho'
treasurv department, for instance,
that $1)000,000 was burned up in tho
Chieago firo. Other millions werolost
and destroyed during tho war, others
are lot or sunken and blown up in
steamboats, others burnoi in burning
buildings, and many millions were lost
from careless pockets or worn out and

noarly $15,000,000 of it that has never
been preented for redemption. It is
probable thit not $1,000,000 of tho
$15,000,000, of this btill out will
evcr como in. Experts cstimato that
at least ono per cent. of tho money
thu-s issued bv tho govrrnment, never
comes back for redemption, and that
tho government has been gainer from
$35,000,000 to $40,000,000 by this pro
cess in the past twenty years, or near
ly $2,000,000 ayear.
Elcctrlo Shocks for I5alklns Hoiscs,
It is thought that a new curo has
been discovered for balking and erib
bing horses by tho application of elec-
tncity. A gentleman ot lialtimore,
who has a liorso subject to balkiug,
placed an electrie battery, with an in-
duction coil, in liis buggy and ran tho
wiro to tho horso s foit and crupper,
and as soon as tlio horse camo to a
standstill tho eurrent was turned on.
and after tho horso was rolieved of
this shock, it is said, ho proceeded
without showing anv disposition to
balk. Thi samo applicntlcn was sue
cessfully mado toa horso who indulged
in cribbing, whereof ho was soon euro l
thro.igh tln unpleasantnoss of tho
electrie shock. Those who havo balk
ing or cribbing horses may givo thc
foregoing a trial.

ferred to stick to his Bhip, Btill imagiuing
that his troublo would cventually bo over

Wo ono who loonoa nt tno nuniirai ovcn in

nursed it, and hastened tho suro rcsult of
Buch a dcep-sented troublo. Time pasod after
leaving Yokohama for Boston, bringing
varying symptoms m tho nMmirnl s case, and
tho doctors imaginod that they held tho dis
ease in check nt least. But with the forma
tion of tubercles, night-sweats nnd tho now
rapid consninptiou of lung tissuos, which
had set in with nlarming symptoms, the pa
tiont realizedthat his cold had laid the seeds
of that fcll ngent of Ueath, consumption.
