INTERESTING COIN
Dr. Carl Johnson, Now Visiting Here,
Has One ot Them.
Editor Republican:
In your issue of May 2 I notice
the following:
Coin Minted In 1304 —W. M. Fayette of Bur
lington, Vt., has in his jiosiession a very old
$yn<l extraordinary coin. It appears to have
been Issued In Turkey and bears the date of
1301. Sultanate of Brunei is clearly eugraved
on one side of the coin, while on the other are
characters which are a mystery to Burling
touians.
Several years ago, while in the
East, I secured a copy of the coin
described and took occasion to look
up its history. Brunei is a semi
independent state in the north
western oart of the island of Bor
neo, and is governed by the Sultan
of Brunei. The state religion is
Mohammedanism and the date Io04
refers to that religion instead of the
Christian.
Their usual system of dates be
gins with the uegira,or flight from
Mecca, which occurred in the year
622 A.D In the case of this coin,
however, that method of reckoning
would make the date of issue 1926
A.D., a manifest absurdity.
It seems probable that.since com
ing into contact with Christian na
tions they have adopted our system
of dating from the birth of the
founder of their religion, which is
570 A.D. This would make 1874
A.D. the actual date of the coin in
question.
Great Britain established a pro
tectorate over Brunei in 1847,which
accounts for the English words and
numerals on the coin, and perhaps
also for the change in dating their
era from Mahomet's birth instead
of from his flight from Mecca.
I enclose the coin for your in
spection.

TIIE TURNER
Employes Wed—House Growing Rap
idly in Popularity.
Ubald Couvrette and Miss F.
Stearns, both employes of the Tur
ner House, were married at Nampa
on Sunday, April 30, 1905. Two
days later they returned, he resum
ing his regular duties at Mountain
Home's big hotel, which, under the
able management of J. L. Brad
ford, is becoming popular with
both home people and traveling
public.
Since Mr. Bradford assumed
charge of the house, on April 1,
he has pushed, as rapidly as possi
ble, the work of renovation
rangement and general improve
ment. That his enterprise and
business ability are appreciated is
demonstrated by the volume and
class of patronage which he has
enjoyed during the past month;
and, better still, his plans contem
plate not only a stated number of
public conveniences, but the con
tinual addition of facilities tending
to the comfort of his guests.
One of the latest features tend
ing to popularize the Turner is the
engagement, last week, of Mrs.
Addie Gilman as matron. She is
well known in this part of the Gem
State, and iB exceptionally well
fitted for the responsible position in
which she has been placed.

the territory between Pocatello and

seemed to be in an unusually
happy frame of mind on his last
visit, the observer inquired
whether business had grown in
proportion to his smile, but he re
fused to commit himself. It de
veloped, however, that he was
accompanied by Mrs. Walker.
