"Is money a commodity!" is a question npon which politi cal economists differ as to J correct answer. Monometallists contend tha it is the market value of the metals which regulates the relative value of the coins, and that "the fixed legal ratio be tween the coins never had the slightest effect on the relative' market value of the metals. from which they draw the con elusion "that bimetallism which seeks to regulate the value of gold and silver by law is a de lusion, a mere revival of the exploded notion that the law can determine the value of commodities generally." If the premises of the mono metallist as here laid down are false, the superstructure which he builds thereon will fall, and sole metallic currency. Mr. Gov. Stone signed the bill pass Tuck answers the argument as ed by the legislature, repeal follows: "Temporary absence D8 the Australian ballot law of either metal would be impns- n Clt of the fourth class, last sibleforall important prefer- Saturda7- Cities of that class ences for one metal over anoth- ca.n,n7 h.oI( their elections er would be obliterated.

Tui people of Chariton county, as well as of other portions of the state, nill be given an opportunity at the annual school election on April 2nd to contribtue to the sup port of the ex-confederate home at lligginiTille.

Some smart Aleck of a doctor has mads this discovery and communi cated it to som congregations, which at once adopted the individu al cup practice. A reported i pidem !c of diptheria at SanvJose, Cal., caused by drinking the wine at corn ea us ion service out of a common cup, was investigated and the result showed that the people of that city had never heard of it and that there hid never been bat two or three c&sitof diptheria in the city in as xa any years. mm law requires the mint to give that price for it. The value o gold bullion is necessarily measured by the quantity of coin it will make, and there can be no value which will pre vail against the miut value. If a mountain of gold was discov ered to-morrow it could only be appraised by supposing it con verted into com at the rate fixed by law. We can con cieve or no other method of measuring its value. There is no price list of gold, because ingot and coin are the same thing. The state sub-divide3 the in got into pieces of convenient sizes, certifies their weight and fineness and thenthey"become coins and legal money. At the present time silver bullion has a market value, or price, be cause it is no longer a monev metal. But no one speaks of the value or price of silver live- franc pieces in trance or of silver thalers in Germany, be cause these silver pieces are money, they make their own price, and as money are worth their face value as fixed by law, independently of the now degraded metal of which they arj composed. They are worth just what gold pieces of the same nomi nal value are worth, though they are not redeemable in gold. Again, the tnononetallists argue that if an interna tional agreement were made concerning the coinage of both metals, silver would become the standard of money and gold would disappear from cir culation, silver remaining the Ho lived but a short time. He and his neighbor, whose name is Wilson, were on tho best of terms, and no one regrets the accident more than Wilson does.

We recol- ect in our boyhood days of hearing much said of the necessity of educat ug all the people. Among the ben efits to flow from a general diffusion of knowledge was the lessening of crime.
