THE AEIZONA REPUBLICAN: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4, 1896.
7 PAID ONE A" Pennies Not Legal Tender ia Amounts of More Tbitn Twenty-Five Cents. There is a postmaster in a little town not far distant, who is noted for the amount of authority he is inclined to show in trivial matters. A short time ago, says the Jlount Morris (Mich.) Union, a business man of the place ap peared before the stcmp window of the office and demanded 300 one-cent stamps, for which he laid down an equal number of pennies. Here was a good chance for the authoritative gentleman, jnd with a view of teaching his impor tance, he picked 25 pennies from the heap, handed out 25 stamps and shoved the rest of the money to the would-be buyer with the remark that pennies were not legal tender there in amounts of more than 25 cents. Expostulation was in vain, the post master cited the law in the case and that seemed to settle it. With a malicious gleam in his eye the buyer swept the re maining pennies into his pocket and mildly inquired: "I suppose I can get a one-ent stamp here for a penny, can't I?"' "Certainly," Buid tne man at the window. "Then give me a one-cent stamp," said the other laying down the money. It was founded to him, and he demanded another and another after that. Several people had come in in the meantime, and were impatiently wait ing their turn at the window, but the obdurate buyer kept on gravely buying one-cent stamps on the installment plan. Seeing determination in the face of the other, the postmaster offered to arbitrate, but it was of no avail. He continued to buy as long as his money lasted, and triumphantly departed amidst the approving smiles of the crowd. AFTER THE ARMADA. The Combination of Trade and Private War Under Elizabeth. The defeat of the Armada inspired England with energy and hope. Our people, says Blackwood's Magazine, be came busy traders. Flemish traders had been ruined by war, Flemish refu gees had nocked into England, and Antwerp, the great port for new world commerce, had been, sacked and taken. England succeeded to the trade of which the Dutch had been deprived. Beyond the ocean lay a vast world of weaJth, of which Spain, united with Portugal, claimed the monopoly, thereby exclud ing English commerce from the. larger half of the planet. Systematic vio lence that is, the combination of trade with private war was the only mode in which this monopoly could be a t tacked. Elizabeth connived at ihis covert mar itime war both before and after the Armada, and the strugglesbetween Eng lish traders and Spanish monopolists were far too numerous and important to admit of peace between the two gov ernments. It was this spirit of com mercial adventure, whether it be called piracy or a heroic attempt to rescue the new world from the inquisition and give it back to the free use of the human race, which was the first step in the de velopment of three colossal growths British trade, British empire, the Brit ish navy. The Water Lily. Several specimens of water lilies have the very curious peculiarity of bloom ing all day and at evening closing their blossoms, and, by retracting the stem, drawing the flour entirelyunderwater. There is no more singular fact in the history of flowers than this oddity of the water lily. The White Feather. The story runs that, during a war be tween the backwoods settlers of North America and the natives, a Quaker feasted the enemy and placed a white feather over the door of his house as a sign of amity. The token was re spected. Hence the phrase: "Showing the white feather," which has come to mean cowardice. ,r" At the Russian town of Eeni, at the junction of the Pruth and the Danube, a rich find was made lately of gold coins of the time of Philip of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great. They are in excellent preservation, and five hundred and twelve of them have al ready been seized by the police and sent to St. Petersburg. ORDINANCE NO. 230.
