The Silver Hollar same facts about the piece of Coin Llinat is agitating he country it the present time. The Stiver Dollar or a unit a was authorized by of april 2,1092. It was to contain 071 grains and four sixteenths parts of n Grain of pure Silver. Each was to be of the value of a Spanish milled Dollar Quot As the Samo is now in the first dollars there were 1,485 parts of Fine Silver to 179 parts of Alloy. In the second series the Dol hire contained 4-1j grains of Copper Tukik my the Dollar 892.4 line. The of 18117 changed the Alloy in tie Dollar to 41i grains of Copper making the Standard nine tenths Liue. During 1794 and 1795 Only $204,791 were coined under the of april 2, 1792. The ratio of 1 1 to 1 for United states Eolius was made Legal by the coinage net of 1897. According to that a Dollar of Gold must contain 23 22 grains of pure Metal and Silver Dollar 371 25 grains. In 179 1 the United states mint coined 72.920 Silver dollars Aud in 1797 Only 7,779. The greatest yearly run on dollars at the Luitte before the opening of the present Century was in 1799, when 422,515 st tilt coins were made. In 1798 there was a reaction Over 1797. In the former year. 327,338 Silver dollars were issued from the mint. The Liberty head of the first United states dollars those of 1794, faced to the right and had Loose flowing hair. Besides the head they contained the Date and the word a Liberty Quot on tie same Side Aud 13 stars seven at the face and eight lit the Back of the head. Luther year 1800 there were 220,920 Dollar pieces coined. By this time the tie had been changed tie Eagle having a shield on his breast and 13 stars in a held above his head. The obverse of tie Coin was also slightly different. Liberty having unkempt bags Aud her hair tied behind with a ribbon. The stars on the same Side has also been reduced to 13. There were two series of dollars coined in 1799. La the first Liberty Only Luid five of tie 13 stars at her face and in the second six. In instances the Remus Piug stars were at the Back. In 1799 there were also a few Restrike in which the Date �?o1799&Quot was placed Over that of 1798. Why this was done los never been satisfactorily explained. In 1801 tie coinage of dollars was again very limited Only 54,254 of them being turned out by the mints that year. There was nothing Peculiar about it and they even sell cheap to Day. Of the dollars of 1802 there were 41,030 coined. They were very com Moi looking pieces of the general pattern of those of 1800, and Are sold to Day by the dealers for about twice their face value. There was a slight revival in the Dollar coinage in 1803�?00,004 such i Ieese being made by the mint that year. They Are still common and Cun lie bought Quot for $1.50 each. There was a slight peculiarity in some dollars of the Issue of 1803, the 3 in the Date being in italic. They sell As cheap As those of the regular Issue. In 180-1 the Dollar was struck which Lias since borne tie distinction of be a Tig the rarest of the United states coins. The whole history of the coinage of that year is shrouded in mystery. It is known that 19,570 such pieces were coined but to Day Only about a dozen dollars of that Date Are known to be in existence. Dealers in coins Aud collectors of such oddities differ in their statements As to How Many of the dollars of 1804 Are still in existence. Some say Only four others eight and twelve. Coin dealers do not Price the 1804 Dollar in their catalogues but it is understood that such a curiosity can be purchased for for about $1,000 each. Tie celebrated Dollar of 1804 Lias a flying Eagle with 13 stars upon the reverse while the face bears the Date Ami a head of the goddess of Liberty with flowing hair. After the Dollar of 180-1 wus issued no More coins of thut denomination were struck by the United states mint until 183 1. Except 321 pieces which we e struck us Quot trial pieces in 1805 the coins of that Issue show Liberty seated and Bolding tie pole and Cap in her left hand and a shield bearing the legend Quot Liberty in her right. There Are no other letters stars or Orna meats on that Side of the Coin except the Diesi Ulieru a name Quot a Gobrecht a Wuicik is to be seen in microscopic letters on the bust. Or the 133 1 dollars Only 1,000 were coined. The reverse had the words Quot United states of America one dollars so arranged As to surround an Eagle flying in a Field of 25 stars. The Dollar of 1830 is priced at $10 by the dealers and a second series of the same Date with Quot Gobrecht in the Field is Worth $100. There were no dollars coined in 1837 and Only a few in 1838. The 1838 Dollar was a very Plain Coin Eagle Hying in a Clear Field and the words Quot United states of America. One dollars on the same Side. Utt the face of the 1838 Dollar Liberty is seated As in the Dollar of 1830, but is partially surrounded by a canopy of stars 13 in number. The Dollar of 1839 is similar to that of 1838�?Eagle Hying Liberty seated. Only 300 of them were issued Aud they Are reckoned among rare United states coins. The Dollar of 1840 has a face similar to that of 1839, but the Eagle is a Fiat looking Dodo holding Laurel branches Aud arrows in his talons. Met after Many Days. An Arctic night.

The ravages of Tho old fashioned potato big Tho round fellow with Tho Black and yellow stripes is of nothing compared with Tho destruction this new visitor Ciui Aud in doing. Tho new Bug averages Over half an Inch in length and has a body in three parts a head and a neck both of which Are Small and u Largo body.

The old Bug is inactive and is easily got at but this our con run swiftly Puiul to takes to his legs As soon As he is disturbed. This is Tho ouly Placo in which Tho insect Lias yet been seen. Or. Guilmartin has never seen or heard of anything like it before and to is very desirous of having an investigation of the insect made in Tho Hope that Somo Means of effectually destroying it can to discovered. Should the Bug once get a foothold on Tho truck farms in Tho county potato planting would certainly suffer seriously. It has been suggested that Tho truck growers association take Tho mutter in hand and Seo if Tho entomological department at Washington will not give his bugs lip a Little study with a View to eradicating him.

The thrones used by Tho French Kings and Chi Derors before the to to of Tho Republic wus known As Quot the throne of the it was so called because of Tho old National Emblem of the Franks which was the Fleur de Lis. A species of Lily. Tho Story of the adoption of the Fleur de Lis As a National Emblem is curious and interesting. Clovis King of Tho Franks married Princess Clotildo of Burgundy in Tho year 493 a. D. The to Tang Queen was a Christian Aud it was her Earnest desire that her husband a Heathen of nuts might to converted. Her arguments had no effect upon him but in incident which occurred in but to later of changed his mind in Tho year 490 Clovis and his Franks met Tho ii All Manni germans in Battle at Tolbia. Clovis was finally so hard pressed that he called on the god of Tho christians for help vowing of his Honor that if to should to victorious to would become a Christian. Ayi Thiu the hour the Alio mini were routed Aud of Christmas Day of the same year Clovis Aud several thousands of his soldiers were baptized into Tho Christian Church. According to Tho Story on Tho eve of Tho baptism an Angel from heaven appeared Aud presented Clovis with a Blue Banner embroidered with Beautiful Fleur de Lis. These heaven embroidered lilies were forthwith adopted As the French Emblem and from that time until the time of Tho revolution All Kings of France bore upon their arms some kind of a representation of the Fleur de Lis.

The statement of us italian sea Captain that he had proved by experience that a ship goes fluster when her sails Are perforated with n number of holes than when they Are quite sound was at first looked upon As too ridiculous for consideration. Unbelievers however now find that Tho italian Lias gone a Long Way toward proving his Case. His theory is that tie Force of the wind cannot fairly take effect on an inflated sail because of Tho Cushion of immovable air that fills up the hollow. To prevent this Cushion collecting to bored a number of holes in the sail which let part of Tho wind blew right through it and allowed Tho remainder to strike Ngu inst Tho Canvas nud a Perciso its full effect several trials have been made Aud it looks is if this is another of those paradoxical truths which appear so impossible of the surface.
