Its most valuable parts are given herewith: There are ten different ktoda of money In circulation In the United State-name. ly. gold coin, standard silver dollars, sub- trtoruea by tne aeUof July IT and Ann 5, 1891. The notes lasued were called "de mand notes" henauae they were payable on demand at certain dotrijrnated subtrms nrlea. They were reix4yable for all public doea, and the aecrelary waa authorized to reissue them when received; but the time within which such reissues might le made waa limited to Dee. 81, 1802. The amount authorized by thene acts was 150,000,000. An additional issue of 110,000,000 waa authorized by the ax t of Feb. IS, 1869, and there were reissues amounting to $30,000. The demand notes were paid In gold when presented for re demption, and they were received for all pnbUo does, and these two qualities pre vented their depreciation. All other United States notes were de preciated In value from 1869 until the re sumption of specie payments. The act of Feb. 6, 1862, provided for the substitu tion of United States notes In place of the demand notes, and they were therefore oanooled when received. By July 1, 1868, all except 13,770,000 had been retired, and nearly 13,000,000 of this small remainder was canceled during the next fiscal year. These notes were not legal tender when first Issued, but they were afterward made so by the act of March 17, 1869. CnlUd State Net. The principal Issue of United States pa per money was officially called United States notes. ' These were the' well known "ffreenhackii" or "lniral tendm Th act of Feb. 26, 1862, authorized the Issue or 9100,000,000, of which 150.000.000 was In Hen of an eoual amount nf iiAm.rul notes and could be Issued only as the de mand note were cancelod. A second Issue of $150,000,000 was authorized by the act of July 11, 1863, of which, however, $50, 000,000 was to be a temporary Issue for the redemption of a debt known as the temporary loan. A third Issue of $150, 000,000 was authorized by the act of March 8, 186a The total amount authorized, In cluding the temporary lssuo, was $450,000,. 000, and the highest amount outstanding at any time was $440,838,903, on Jan. 80, 1864. There Is still outstanding $346, 681,01ft. The reduction from the original perma nent Issue of $400,000,000 to $346,681,010 was caused as follows: The act of April 12, 1806. nrovlded that JJuitMl Uxutu no to tne treasurer or tne cmtud Mate or to an assistant treasurer for redemption or exchauge Into lawful money. United State note are redeemable in "oolo," In sums not less than $50, by the assistant treasurers In New York and San Francisco, Treasury notes of 1890nre redeemable In "coin," In suras not less than $50, by the treasurer and all assistant treasurers of the United Slates. National hank notes are redeetnnblo lu lawful money of the United Suites by the treasurer, but not by the assistant treusur era' They are also redeemable at the bank of issue. In order to provide for the ro- aempnon of Its notes when present!, ev ery .national bank is required by law to keep On deposit with the treasurer a sum equal to 6 per cent of its circulation. Gold certificates. Iielrur recelots for mi11 coin, are redeemable in such coin by the treasurer and all assistant treasurers of the United htaU-s. Silver certificates are receipts for stand ard silver dollars deoslted, and are re deemable In such dollars only. "Coin" obligations of the government are redeemed In gold coin when gold Is de manded and in silver when silver Is do n lauded. Coinage of the United Stato.

These forms of money are all avail able as circulation. While they do not all possess the full legal tender quality, each kind has such attributes as to give It cur rency. The status of each kind Is as follows: Gold coin is legal tender at its nominal or face value for all debts, public and pri vate, when not below the standard weight and limit of tolerance prescribed by law, and whon below such standard and limit of tolerance It Is legal tender In proportion to its weight Standard silver dollars are legal tender at their nominal or faoo value In payment of all debts, public and private, without regard to the amount, except where other- wlso expressly stipulated In tlte contract. Subsidiary silver Is legal tender for amounts not exceeding $10 in any one pay - tnont Tsoasury notes of the act of July 14, 1890, are legal tender for all debbs, public and private, except where otherwise ex pressly stipulated In the contract. United States notes are legal tender for all debts, publio and private, except duties on Imports and Intercut on the publio debt Gold certlnoatofl, silver certlnoates ana national bank notes are not legal tender, but both classes of certificates are receiv able for all publio dues, while national bank notes are rooelvablo for au publio dues except duties on Imports, and may be paid out by the government for all sal aries and other debts and demands owing by the United States to Individuals, cor porations and associations within the United States, except interest on we put 11c debt and in redemption of the national currency. All national banks are required by law to receive the notes or otner na tional banks at par. The minor coins of nickel and copper are legal tender to the extent of 25 cents. Gold Coins. The oolnaoo of legal tender gold was au thorized by the first coinage act passed .by congress, April 2, 1799. The sold unit or value is tne aouar, which contains 25.8 grains of standard gold 900 fine. Gold is now coined In de nominations of $2.00, $5, $10 and $20, called rosDectlvely quarter eagles, half eagles, eaglos and double eagles. The total coinage or goia ny ino mints of the United States from 1798 to June 30, 1896. Is $1,814,692,253, of which It Is esti mated that $507,931,823 Is still In existence as coin In the United States, while the remainder, $l,246,760,43b, has been ex ported or consumed In tho nne ana. ne obi bullion now in the United States amounts to $32,208,965. It will be seen that more than two-thirds of the goia coins struck at the mints of the United States have disappeared from circulation. . Silver Coins. The silver unit Is the dollar, which con tains 412X grains of standard silver 1)00 Una The amount of fine sliver in the dol lar is S7iw oralns. and there are 414 grains of copper alloy. The standard sil m dollar was first authorized by the act of April 2, 1793. Its weight was 416 grains 892.4 fine. The total amount irm i?ofl to 187S was $8,0S1,8S, ana me amount coined from 1878 to JuneflO, 1896. was $430,790,041. The coinage rawo oe- ween fold and silver onder the act of 1709 was 15 to 1. but by the act of 1837 It was changed to 15.984 to 1 (commonly called 16 to 1). This is the present ratio. Of the 8430.790.041 standard silver dol lars coined since February, 1878, there was held In the treasury June 30, 1696, $378,614,048, Aud tho amount outside the tmrnrf was $58,175,998. Sliver certln oates to the amount of $342,610,604 have been Issued against that amount of the standard silver dollars held In the treasury. The commercial value of an ounce of fine silver June 80, 1896, was $0.6924, and the commercial value of the sliver in uie silver dollar on that date was 55 omit. raper Money. Tha first tter money ever Issued by the govrrnuusut pf the United States was an- mlght be Vctlred to the extent of $10, 000, 000 during the ensuing six months, and that thereafter they might be retired at the rate of not more than $4,000,000 per month. This authority remained in force until It was suapended by the act of Feb. 4, 1808. The authorized amount of reduc tion during this period was about $70,000, 000, but the actual reduction was only about $44,000,000. No change was mode In the volume of United States notes out standing until after the panic of 1873, when, In response to popular demand, the government reissued $-,tS,000,000 of the canceled notes. This brought the amount outstanding to $382,000,000, ami it so remained until tho resumption act of Jan. 14, 1876, provided for Its reduction to $300,000,000. Tho proc ess was, however, again Rtopiied by the act of May 81, 1878, which required the notes to be reissued when redeemed. At that time the amount outstanding was $346,681,016, which Is the present amount Oold Certificates. The act of March 8, 1863, authorized the secretary of the treasury to receive de posits of gold coin and bullion in sums not less than $20 and to issue certificates thorefor In denominations not less than $20, said certificates to be receivable for duties on Imports. Under this act deposits of gold were received and certificates Issued until Jan. 1, 1879, when the practice was discontinued by order of the secretory of the treasury. The purpose of the order was to prevent the holders of United States notes from presenting them for redemp tion In gold and redepostttng the gold In exchange for gold certificates. No certifi cates were Issued after Jan. 1, 1879, until the passngo of the bank act of July 12, 1882, whloh authorized and directed the secretary of the treasury to receive gold coin and bullion and Issue certificates. Silver Certificates. The act of Feb. 88, 1878, authorizing the Issue of the standard sliver dollar, provid ed that any holder of such dollars might deposit them In sums not less than $10 with the treasurer or any assistant treasur er of the United States and receive certifi cates therefor In denominations not loss than $10, Wild certificates to be receivable for customs, taxes and all publio dues. The act of Aug. 4, 1886, authorized the is sue of the smaller denominations of $1, $2 and $5. Silver certificates have practically taken the pluee in circulation of the stand ard silver dollars which they represent The amount outside the treasury July 1, 1896, was $331,259,609, while the amount of standard silver dollars outside the treas ury was only $52,175,998. Neither silver certificates nor silver dollars are redeemed In gold. Treasury Notes, Act of July 14, IS BO. These notes were authorized by the act of July .14, 1890, commonly called tho "Sher man act" The secretary of ,, the treasury was directed to purchase each month 4,500,000 ounces of fine sliver at tbe mar ket price, and to pay for the same with treasury notes redeemable on demand In coin and legiU tender for all debts, publio and prlvato, except where otherwise ex pressly stipulated In the contract It was provided In the act that when the notes should be redeemed or received for dues they might be reissued, but that no greater or less amount of such notes should be "outstanding at any time than the cost of the sliver bullion and the standard silver dollars coined thercfroin, then held In the treasury, purchased by suulv notes," The authority for the purt hase of silver bullion under this act was repealed by the act of Nov. 1, 1803, up to which date the government bad purchased 168.674,682.53 fine ounoes at a cost of . $155,931,002, for which treasury notes were Issued. The amount of silver bullion purchased under said act and now held In the treasury Is 181,838,199.46 fine ounce, which cost $118,903,909.23. . Redemption.

The bond which kept Byron and Hunt together was broken by Shelley's death, livron was tired of him. and Hunffiiad not the tact to Imvo him alone. Wo give Uyrou s version of tho est rutbremont rati., r than that of the other, for Le'itfli flunt's answer for himself Is a weaker apology and had better have remained unwritten: "Hunt's letter is prolinbly the exact piece of vulgar coxcombry you mlarht ex pect from his situation. Ho I a good man. with some poetical elements in hi chaos. but spoiled by the Chrlstchureh hospital and a Sunday newspaper to sity nothing of the Surrey jail, which conceited hlni In to a martyr. U ut Leigh Hunt l-i n good man and a good father see Lis odes to rl: the Masters Hunt; a good 7ins!mnl s his sonnet to Mrs. Hunt; a good Mend sto his epistles to different people; a cwu? coxcomb, and n very vulgar jierson in cv erythlng about him. Hut t liar's not hi fault, but of clrcumst'Uiccs." Again, though with n diro:t nllusi t. to Hunt ho writes: 'Tho nftvof these men is that thev nev er lived In high life nor In solitude. Then Is no medium fr tho knowlo-lgo of tlu busyortlie still world. If admitted lnU high lifo for a soasmi, It fs merely as spec tators tliey form no part of tluimochtin ism tliereof.

Tho ton will gtvd enough stimulus and a little strength, allowing the body gradually to regain Its usual vlger, and In two hours a hearty meal may tie eaten without ill results. Matrimony and Patience. Matrimony and pafiojice! It is not al ways a perfect combination, is it? In South Africa tbe savage tribes have a peculiar ceremony which they put tho matrimonial candidate through previous to bis entering the holy state. His hands are tied up in a bug contain ing five ants for two hours. If he boars unmoved tho tortures of tbeir stings ho is considered qaaliiird to cope with the nagging and daily jur and fret of mar ried life. Such a man would make an admirable husband. Ho would not be upset by the thoughts of a spring bon net or grow irritable every time tho steak was overdone. The idea of having a patience trial for those about to marry is oiio that civilized coplo might adopt. Two Archblnhope. The archbishop of Canterbury is primate of all England, and therefore takes precedence of tho archbishop of York, who is only "primato of Eng land. " This very nice distinction was made several centuries ago on account of a very bitter dispute arising between the two functionaries as to whioli should precede the other. The matter was set tled by conferring precedence upon tho archbishop of Canterbury, the two titles bving also bcsUnrtvi at the same time, Sho Believed It Somebody asked President Robert El lis Thompson of tho Central High school if judgment is sacrificed in the cultiva tion of memory, and he, in unhesita tingly affirming such to bo tho case, re lafed a story or two at the expense of his own memory. Said he: "I came very near 8praking of Jonah as 'What you may call him' in tho pulpit oneo, and at another time in the courso of a conversation I said to a woman : 'I) you believe that Jonah swal lowed the whale?' "'I do,' she said unhesitatingly. AIlITJO.AL. LOCAL NKiVH. For 1'edro score cards and markers, go to the Nkwb office.
