THE. A. B C OF FI.YAXCE. XVIII. STEIHTS OK THE NATIONAL HANKS. The National bank currency, it has been shown, ha two ;rcat murks; i U absolutely ife, ami yet it adapt Jt-'ulf to local need-t. To make this notes en tirely safe, the banks are required to own and deposit with the United States Treasurer, for $90,000 in notes issued 8100.000 in United Suites bonds; to keep at all times $4,500 in legal tenders on deposit against 890,000 in bank notes issued as a fund for their redemption; and to submit to strict inspection and restraint. How then, arc men who Lave capital induced to go into banking wherever there is a local neeor iiiey are allowed to issue ami lend So.fHK) in notes, while thev draw interest on the bnnds worth 100,000 which they own. This is hotly denounced as giving the lianks "double interest" on their moncv. 11 at the object to secure with perfect safety banks and currency cnou-rh for the business of each locality in a rapidly growing country is often forgotten, l'ost offices arc opened by the hundred, and post-routes established. When the business does not pay as yet- would it be wise to shut up all sucli officer? The deficit is borne by the Nation, because postal facilities, even for new or sparse ly settled districts, arc necessary to the treneral welfare and prosperity. To de ny them liecau.ie of the cost would be an injury not only to the people there, but to the millions clswhere, who constant ly need to reach such places by mail. If the local banks cost somcthinc do they not also render a great public segrice? The water-pipes which supply pure wa- 1er to a whole town also cost something. .Should they be torn up? It would be quite as sensible as aoonsu tuc ia lional banks because they gain some profit in supplying a safe currency for local needs. If men 'want pure water instead of poisonous stuff from the Pitches, or pure currency instead of the 3navish wild-cat money of old times, ihey mut pay the cost. " Is the cost "too large? The profits of the National banks are so small that many are retiring from the system, and $22,517,303 more of circulation has been given up by banks than has been issued to banks since January, 1875 "The -proof of the pudding is the eating." If the issues of notes pays the men who luivc tried it. wliv have the banks sur rendered $22,500,000 of their circula tion? Farmers or blacksmiths, who are getting rieh in any place, are never in iiaste to sell their farms or shops and to get out of the business there. Again, there arc now in existence 853 State and 2,850 private lianks which refuse to come into the Xatioual system and issue notes, though they could if they chose, if the profits arc too great, jf the sys tcxi is really a burden, if the banks the nanKs - . f . -oin more than a fair return for tlie vices rcimcrcti, now is 11 wiru inner banks and bankers do not make haste J 1 1 r. .. . .1 to come into the system and to share its profits? The truth is, as the official re ports have proved,that the average gain of National hanks by their circulation is less than 2 per cent yearly. In many places it is much less, and in many there is no gain whatever. It is often thought that banks and other bondholders gain unduly, because their property is not taxed. But every dollar invested in bonds is taxed at the outset. The tax is paid in the price. .Jones wants to rent a farm, and the rent is 81,000 for the year if he pays the taxes, amounting to 200. Hut he says, "I prefer to pay 1,200 for the farm and have no lwther almut the tax." Just such a bargain is made by every man who buys a bond exempt from tax ation ; he pays moro for the bond be cause it is exempt. When the average tax is 2 per cent, a taxed six per cent bond will sell for no more than an un taxed four per cent bond. In reality. Government collects from the buyer, at the outset, all the tax that he would be expected to pay as long as the bo ml runs, on the mo"ncy invested in it. Oth er personal property of all kinds escapes taxation But not n dollar invested in United States bonds has or ever can es cape. The "double interest" gives grief only to men who never pay any of it. The men who do borrow money and pay interest make no complaint", be cause they know that they pay only a single interest at the usual rate. If Joii es borrows 1,000 at bank, he pays no more than if he had borrowed from his neighbor, Smith. How is ho the worse off, then, for the fact that the bank also owns bonds? Who pays the extra charge? Not the people, for they pay only one interest on the money borrowed by their agent, the Government, whether the bond is owned by the bank or not. If the banks had never been formed, the men who started them would have a right to precisely the same interest on the bonds they own that is now paid to them as a bank. The Nation has bor rowed their money. The bondstbelong to them. And the micros must he paid to them or to some other holders. Thus the Nation loses nothing, andj'thcpri vate borrower loses nothing; in fact, he gains, for if the bank had not been Parted he would not have been able to borrow money at all. The very object in starting the bank" was to supply mon ey for lending where then' was not enough before. The case is really sim ple. Brown, the workman, must have $100 to pny Black, the store-kreper. He goes to his friend White.the farmer, who has saved money. But White says "I have lent all my money on mort gage for a year. But Black will take my due-bill'the same as cash, and I will lend you that at mtesost." Brown is glad, and pays interest willingly, for the due-bill is the same as moiiev to him. Black t-ikcs it gladly, f-'fof he knows toat White is good. an"d Ins mon ey invested. And White, having lent his money to one man, lends his credit to another, and gets interest on both. The bank has credit, beeause itltas lent money to the Nation and holds its bonds. Backed by that security its due bills are good, and it lends those to men who need them. The old State banks used to get much larger "double interest" than the Na tional banks, because, they loaned many more due-bills in proportion to their capital. They were not obliged to keep a part of their capital idle for the pro- t.-ction of the public. On &1 00.000. capital they could issue $100,000. or of- ten $200,(100 in noNs, and could lend c.-itiii.il? "if Hi.-. y-ii.iim1 l.-.i.t n... i,.. dens, thomrh allowed to lend only $K-1 isKI in notes on SIO0.O0O of capital, the . ."late hanks went twice as licavv luir- dens, for they often loaned jrL'OO.'oofl in noiei on tin! panic capital.

In many parts of the country, it is plain that any change in that direction would do great harm. An Anecdote or Astor. The Roston Tranfrript tells Hie follow-! ins pood story of John Jncob Afctor: One of his captains hud sailed six voy ages to China and other dVtant countries With no chronometer, dcjicndiu!: only o.i Mead reckoning" and "luiiars." Just before starting on his seventh voyage, he suggested to Mr. Ahtor that it w?T"ld be safer to have a chronometer. W ell, get one," said the merchnnt. The cap tain did so, and entered its cost in his nccount current. When Mr. Ast or8 eye fell uiKMi the item, he drew his jiencil through it. The captain expostulated. "Tarn it, man," said Astor, "I tolt you to get one; I didn't Bay I'd pay for it?' The captain severed his connection with As lor then and there, went into Wall street and engaged with other owners, and be fore night was in commnnd of ns fine a ship as ever floated in New York's beau tiful bay. . , , In three days lie was ready for sea, and Fct nail. At the same time, Astor s uhip, under command of a new captain, set Kiil also. They had a race for Hong I'min luil flu. rnnlnin who. as he UFcd to put it, had discharged John Jacob Astor, bv keeping the men at the braces, and taking advantage of every puff of wind, won by thiee days. The ship was loaded in the shortest possible time, and before Aster's vessel, which hud arrived mean time, was half loaded, our captain weigh ed anchor, and with a full cargo of tea pet sail for Sandy Hook, arrived in pood lime, got his fillip alongside the wharf, and began hoisting out his cargo, which was sold by auction on the siot. This glutted the market, for the consumption was comparatively small in those days, and when Astort riiip came in, prices had fallen. Two days later, as the cap tain was sauntering down Broadway, he met his former employer, "How much dit dat chronometer cost yon 7" asked the latter. "Six hundred dollars," was the reply. "Veil, dat vas sheap," said As! fir. "it cost mo S(i0.000." The merchant and lite captain have both, years smco, paid the long rccKon ing. but that chronometer is still a good lime-keeper, and treasured relic as well. Culliralc One Talent.

It lias lieen justly said that a great deal of the wisdom of a man in this century is shown in leaving things unknown ;"nnd a great deal of his prac tical sense in leaving things undone. The day of universal scholars is past "Life is short, and art is long." The range of human knowledge has in creased so enormously, that no brain can grapple willi it ; n'nil the man who would know one thing well must have the courage to be ignorant of a thousand things, however attractive or inviting. As with knowledge, so with work. The man who would get along must single out his specialty, and into that must iour tho whole stream of his activity all tho energies of his hand, eye, tongue, heart and bruin. Broad culture, many sided uess. arelteanliful things to contemplate; but it is the narrow-edge men, the men of single and intense purpose, who steel their souls against all things else, who accomplish the hard work of the world, and who are every where iu demand when hard work is to be done.

At Surabaya tho government lias a large machine shop where many castings are made, but where the chief busine-8 is the manufacture of steam boilers for the navy. A traveler describes this establishment, in which over nine hundred Javanese were laboring vol untarily. The Javanese are of the Malay race, and most of the overseers are na tive, but few Europeans being employed in the whole works. These Malays per form their allotted tasks quietly and steadily, without loud talkingor unneces sary noise. Some ofthcinarc so skillful that they receive nearly two guilders, or 75 cents, per day. Here the standard j weights anil measures tor the govern- j inent are made. Some of the workmen had been in the shops as long as fifty- seven years. J. ins is ail ine more re-i markable, because these natives arc usually unable to labor at the age of thirty-five or forty, on account of their dissolute habits. "Most of their machin ery is not as nicely finished as that im ported from Kurope, but it appears quite as durable. Yet the fact that the Jav anese have the capacity to do some nice work was proved oy one in charge of the engraving department, whose line cut lines would have been creditable to many a European. A Surprised Physician. A dying patient recovers through the intcqiosition of a humble (crinaii. Some weeks ago Dr. G ,a very reput able and widely-known physician, living on U btrcot, was called io auemi a very complicated case of Rheumatism. Upon arriving at the house he foimd a man about forty years of age, lying in a prostrated ami serious condition with his whole frame dangerously affected with the painful disease. He prescribed for the patient, but the man continued to grow worse, and on Sunday evening lie was found to be in a very alarming condition. The knees and elbows and larger joints were greatly inflamed and could not be moved. It was only with extreme difficulty that the patient couiil be turned ill bed, with the aid of three or four persons. The weight of the clothing was so oppressive that means Inn! to lie adopted io Keep it ironi me patient's body. The doctor saw that his assistance would be of no avail, and left the house, the members of the family following him to the door.weeping. At this criti cal hour.a neighbor, a poor ami humble German, shoemaker, appeared to the griei-smiltcn ones as a saving ani i. He had heard of the despair of the faun ly, and now asked them to try hisreme dy.aiid accordingly brought forth a bot tle of St. Jacobs Oil. As a drowning man will catch at straws, so the poor wife applied this remedy; she had no hope, but would try anything, as a mat ter of duty. The first application cased the patient very much; after a few hours they used "it again, and, wonder of wonders, the pain vanished entirely! Even- subsequent application improved the sufferer, and in two days he was well and out. When the doctor called in a few days after, ho was indeed sur prised; for, instead of a corpse, he found a new-made man. Exchange.
