Circulation Over 21,000 about boosting those Golf rates dear editor last sunday a letter appeared in the bulletin which criticized the raising of rates on local Golf courses. If h. Would Only figure out the Cost of running a Golf course i am sure he would gladly pay an increased rate. I done to believe the City makes any Money off the local courses.

By Hubert Johnson Money has not always been in the form of coins or paper As it is today. History reveals that curious Money was developed from Many things highly valued because of superstition or because of usefulness. Primitive tribes used currencies based on almost anything from cattle to Woodpecker scalps. Remote localities keep Many of these currencies in use today. An example of extraordinary Money was the wooden Money used by some Banks in the latest National Bank crisis. In the tropics where clothes Are not needed and food can be gathered easily trophies and ornaments Are Money. Shells formed one of the earliest kinds of Money. The Shell of a Small Mollusk found in shallow water was the Universal Coin in the land washed by the Indian Ocean. The Shell is White or Straw coloured and about an Inch Long. Shells used As Money. They were used generally on the West coast of Africa a generation ago and Are still current in isolated places in Africa India and the South seas. On the Solomon islands some villages do nothing but fish and make Shell Bead Money. On Duke of York Island Small Cowry shells Are Strung in strips of Cane known As Dewar a. The Dewar a is made up for convenience in coils of too fathoms sometimes As Many As 600 fathoms Are coiled together. In Salaita one of the Solomon islands porpoise Teeth Are valuable. The porpoises Are driven into shallow water where they smother in mud and their Teeth Are extracted and made into Money. Fiji natives use whales to Teeth red ones comparing to White Teeth As $5 compares with 25 cents. The Bent tusks of a boar Are currency in German new Guinea. Use Woodpecker scalps. Denta Lium Snail shells Are valued in different parts of the world. Denta Lium and abalone shells were Money along with slaves skins or blankets in Washington territory before Many Whites appeared. The Karokus valued the red scalps of woodpeckers at from $2.50 to $5 apiece. They used some slaves As Money others frequently were killed and their flesh used As bait to catch Denta Lium snails. The Young men of Santa Cruz islands use feathers to buy their wives. Tiny Jungle Birds Are trapped for their red headdress. The indians of new England were found using Wampum age known sometimes As Wampum or Page. It consisted of beads made from the inner whorls of certain sea shells. Strung in belts or sashes Wampum was in two colors Black being double the value of White. Settlers used Wampum. The settlers used Wampum. The unit was the fathom consisting of 360 White beads Worth sixpence. The decline of Beaver Trade caused the end of Wampum Money. During the Gold Rush of 1849, there was not enough Money to answer the needs. The first trading was done largely with Gold dust. A Pinch of Gold dust about the size of a Pinch of snuff was the common measure where there was no Means of weighing. At a Public meeting in san Francisco sept. 9, 1848, it was decided that $16 an ounce was a fair Price for Placer Gold.
