smaller pupils of the Graded school children from six to fourteen years old sixty or seventy in number all of whom were on the spot with their nerve It is remarkable to see so many children appear upon the stage single and in groups apparently without the least embarrassment The court house was crowded with friends of the school and to face such an audience older persons often tremble fearing a mistake buJ upon this occasion every boy and girl was on to his or her job each part being played and spoken to perfection not an error being made during the en tire evening- It was certainly gratifying to thei many parents to see their children act so perfectly and it was certainly pleas ing to the teachers who trained them The Indian play Hiawatha was the last on the program and it

our com forts and happiness is a natural law of mantof The individual member of so agerlnderstoodthe changing the surplus of some pdidcontribute to his wellbeing y In early ages the hunter exchanged his fur skins for powder and lead and those who tilled thesoilexchangpd the surplus of their crops and herds for imple menu clothing and other ne cesities as well as luxuries which they could not produce The difficulties of exchanging property for property were so many that it became necessary to adopt some measure of value with which to facilitate exchange The farmer with a sur lus of wheat or corn could not findw man with farming impliments to trade for wheat or corn This led to the adoption of some commodity which could bused e first as a standard of mea sure of value second as a med ium of exchange This commodi ty is called money A which IIexchange standard of value by being con rtinually brought into comparison with other commodities Among the things used SB money by various people within the historical period are cacao beans salt silk furs tobacco dried fish wheat rice olive oil coverf3 shells iron copper platinum nickle silver and gold j It would be difficult to say what had not been used as mone at some time or place Our ow history furnishes an abundance 1t of curious examples the most in structive being the tobacco curE S rent y of the colonial period It t f may be said that Virginia grew her own currency for nearly tw V centuries and Maryland forar century and a half r IV Thej first General Assembly of JuIff 3I 1619 and the first law passe c J r was one fixing the price of to rivbacco at three shillings for the fbest forn Bidding the making of contracts S payable in money thus virtually making tobacco the sole cur r rency The cultivation increased ilso rapidly that the price fell Inrr v order to raise the price steps r were taken to restrict the amount v grown and improve the qualm 1 The right to cultivate tobacco was restricted to 1500 plants PC red v Ipoll Carpenters and other me chanics were not allowed to plant 3 jf tobacco or do any work in the j ty I ground There measures were p ineffective and the price conti- n4ed u 1 to fall Then

Ff iit 5ii II 1683 an extraordinary series1rJ of occurrence grew out low price of tobacco Many people signed petitions for a cease tion of planting for one year for the purpose of increasing the price As the request was not granted they banded themselves together and went through the country destroying tobacco plants wherever found The Assembly in 1684 passed a law declaring that the malefac rs has passed beyond th bounds of riot and that their aim was the subversion of the number of eight or more should a go about destroying tobacco stIaitors and suffer death In 1727 tobacco notes were legalized These were in the na ture of certificates of deposits in goverment warehouses issued by official inspectors They were declared by law current and payable for all to bacco debts within the warehouse district where they were issued They supply an early example of the distinction between money on the one hand and goverment notes or bank notes on the other The tobacco in the warehouse as the real medium ofex change The tobacco notes were orders payably to bearer for the delivery of the money The circulating medium of the New England colonies was quite as fantastic as that of Virginia Massachusetts used musket balls in 1635 in 1640 Indian corn wheat rye beaver barley and peas were used dried fish were also added to this list Taxes might be paid in these articles and also in cattle tobe appraised The need of metallic cpr rency was severely felt A con stable once collected 130 bushels of peas as taxes in Springfield He found that he could trans port this public revenue most cheaply by boat Launching it on the Connecticut River he shipped so much water on boardc werYe thatnmoney ought to be easy of carriage and not liable to injury by exposure to the elements The American

system was origi nated in 1792 and was modeled after the Spanish Dollar The dollar takes its name from Dale the town where it was first coin In civilized life in order to carry oti commerce we need a medium of exchange therefore we originated a System of money Money is as essential to the in terchange of commodities as language is to the interchange of ideasI Money in order tonteet the de mind and

Money must contain a great ore of value in a smalP space so that great value could be easily carried It must be of a substance that can be easily divided into parts and each part of the same weight must be equal in value Money mus be pf a substance e that will have a uniformity i value all over the country so there will be no confusion in the interchange of commodities The question might be asked why would not diamonds or some other substance do as well as gold or silver as diamonds would have the durability and portability that is true But diamond couldnot be so easily divided into equal parts of equal value nor could the goverment stamp the value upon the face so readi ly neither can they be refined so readily as gold or silver thereI betooThe shape of coins are usually

making of coins are lj assaying 2jrefining 3 alloying 4 coin ing The bullion is fii st melted in a crucible While in the melted state it is stirred until thoroughly mixed It is then allowed to cool in the form of a brick Small piece are clipped from two corners o the brick most distant from each and given to two different asspyers to test the fineness of the metal If their test do not agree vilhin a certain fraction the brick is returned to the melting pot and the process repeated When the test is saris factory and the amount of foreign substance is known the whole of the impurity is removed by chemical means Then the requisite amount of alloy is added be remelting and mixing to harden the mass Thus to nine pounds of pure gold one pound of copper is added so that the coins shallbe ninetenths

around the edge of the piece on both sides so that its weight shall rest on the rim and not on the surface of the whole coin in order to minimize the abrasasipn This process is call ed milling n The blanks are thenv put in a cylindrical case and sent to thef coining machine At each revolution of the machine one blank drops from the bottom of th cylinder is siezed and conveyed to sunken steel bed

the blank underneath with sufficient force to impress upon it the letters and figures of both surfaces of the coin The presure also squeezes the coin against the serrated collar producing an indentation on the edges of the coin the object ofI which is to prevent any clandes tine removal of metal If apiece were clipped from the edge or if any portion were removed by filing the fraud would

that Mr Nell could supply all of the western part of this county in turnips and at this particular time we made mention that we want ed him to remember us at th harvest time and he gave his consent We called en him aI fewdays ago for d bushel and with regret Mr Nell informed us that his turnips was of the gourd kind and all grew to be a large as plates but as hollow asj a gourd Not a bushel of good ones In the patch We will ring off for this tim saying that Spark ville will be connected with this place by another telephone line na few days 7 Eller Mr J B Ford is quite sick at this writing Rev J

I gatherings that were held at that time I now write again later on the visit of D H Butler and family the many happy meet ing heldat this time were but a repetition of the former and I have often thought would have the pleasure of seeing both re petted end all the parties pies Merit again but I remember now onehas p weaway and gone to i his reward Uncle Billie Moore as he was familiarl
