9ou4liern City Whore There Ar lint Few Copper Cent You would be surprised to know the vast number of children among the poorer classes in New Orleans whode not clearly understand the value antl function of the nickel said a store keeper downtown reports the New Orleans l TiraeeDemocrat ami it all results from the popularity of the quartie system which has always been so much a part of life in this city They are the small buyers who run all kinds of errands for the little family to which they belong Purchases amounting in individual cases to less than live cents daily amount in theag gregate to thousands of dollars It is ho small part of the retail traffic of the city The children split a nickel up into very small pieces hl inga pennys worth of this and n pennys worth of that until they Ileave the store or the market with an armfull of little packages which will represent tho days supplies Sometimes they will spend only apart of the nickel anti will get a ticket orticketsormaybepenniesInchangeris to two cents and a half and then they get a pasteboard check for the other legalfface value Checks or tickets of this kind are extensively used in this city and they have added greatly to the circulation of a sort of crude sub sidiary money One of those cheeks is as good as gold at the grocery or market stall where it is issued it is predicated on and gets its value from a redemption fund just like Uncle Sams money except that instead of being redeemable in gold on demand it is exchangeable at the grocery at its face value for any of the things in stock or good at the vegetable stall at the market place for two cents and a half worth of anything on hand when it is presented It is always good for what it calls for on itsface Alpine Hotel Notice American
