nnce lecture wtis preached to ifr
freight handlers at one of the stations
of the Pennsylvania railroad a short
time ago, says the New York Tri
bune. The result is that each man
now wears a blue ribbon and al
mysterious-looking casks and barrels
which are put off at that station and
for which there are no known owners
are left severely alone. A few months
ago there came to this place by ex-'
press a big barrel unaccompanied by
any thing and having no mark by
which the owner or its destination
could be learned. There was an odor
of whiskey about it, and it looked
suspiciously like a whisky barrel. A
tracer was sent over the road, but
nothing could be learned as to where
it came from, to whom it was going
or by whom it was owned. It stood
on the platform for a few days until
it Jbecame a nuisance. The freight
handlers eyed it rather longinglj',
but could not get at it while it was
in that eonspicuous place. By the
order of the station agent the barrel
was taken to the loft of the store
room to await for a possible owner
who might turn up some time in the
future. It had been there for two or
three months when one of the express
companies' men went to the station
agent and told him he was looking
for a barrel of alcohol with two skel
etons inside of it.
The station agent remembered the
mysterious barrel and took the
searcher to the loft. He immediately
identified the barrel as the one which
he was looking for. A kick from his
foot produced a hollow sound, follow
ed by the rattling of some dry object
inside. A closer examination showed
that numerous gimlet holes had been
made in the head, and that the holes
had been plugged up with matches.
The station agent sent lor the
freight-handlers to have them come
to the loft and help take the barrel
"It's emptly," faltered one of the
"Yes, I know; but I want to see if
there is any thing inside of it," said
the express agent, at the same time
breaking in the head of the barrel
with an axe. Out tumbled the two
skeletons, to the horror and dismay
of the freight-handlers. They were
durnfoundedand tied from the loft in
stantly. Not one of the men turned
up for work for three days. All sent
around word in the morning that
they were sick. "When they did come
back each wore a blue ribbon, and
they haven't since been known to
take a drink of whiskey. Unclaimed

Ho Knows Better N ow.
It is well for one to be careful in
talking with strangers. "I had a cu
rious experience on a train coming
from New York a few days ago'
said a gentleman to the Buffalo Ex
pressionist." "I got into conversa
tion with a young man, and, when
he learned that I was from Buffalo
he asked me if I knew a well-known in
surance agent of this city. I answered
him in the affirmative, and he asked
me whether I knew him intimately.
X told the stranger that the Buffa
lonian alluded to had beaten me at
poker, and that probably he was the
best poker-player in the city. Then
I asked the inquisitive young man if
ho knew the insurance man, and he
staggered me when he answered,
'Well, I ought to, for he is my fa
ther.' I nearly fainted, but I smoothed
the matter over as best I could.
Now when I meet that young man
on the street he always laughs at me
in the most amusing manner. It
taught me a lesson, and now 1 never
talk to people unless I know who

THE SAFETY FUND.
The Security of the Safety Fund Money.
" It will be percieved that since the
rate of interest on the money will al
ways be uniform, and loans can always
be obtained from the Safety Fund on
productive property, it will be impossi
ble to induce a financial crisis and de
preciate the value of the property on
Avhich the money is issued, so that it
would not be good for the interest.
Therefore the mortgages will always be
ample security for the loans on the Safe
ty Fund; and the money will always be
equivalent for property and labor be
cause it will always truly represent
their value. For, if the money can be
loaned for a per centage interest which
will buy a certain portion of the yearly
products of land and labor, the legal
value of the principal of the money will
be equal to the actual value of so much
land as will produce what the interest
will purchase. When Branches are es
tablished in all States, every individual
can borrow money, at the usual rate of
interest, to the amount of half the value
of his productive land. Every dollar
thus borrowed will be added to the
amount in circulation, . as much a3 if it
had been imported from a foreign coun
try or coined. The Safely Fund will
actually create all its money.
It will require a very small proportion
of the property of the country to secure
a sufficient currency. The property in
Massachusetts, according to the assessed
valuation in 1840, averaded $406 50 to
each individual. The average wealth in
property of our whole population is
from three to five hundred dollars. The
amount of money needed will not, prob
ably, exceed ten or fifteen dollars for
each inhabitant. Therefore, only three
or four per cent, of the property of the
country will be necessary to secure an
ample supply of money. The Govern
ment can in this way provide a portable
legal value to any extent that may be
required. The people can borrow mon
ey from the Safety Fund in larger or
smaller sums at prescisely the same rate
The mortgages maybe drawn payable
one year after date, with one and one
tenth per cent, interest; and so long as
this interest shall be regularly paid, the
principal may remain, in whole or in
part, at the option of the mortgagor.
So, whenever a mortgagor shall have
the means, he can pay otf any part of
the mortgage, and stop the interest.
But he will never be compelled to pay
the principal so long as the interest shall
be regularly paid.
No aid from large capitalists will be
required to establish the Safety Fund,
for the money will be made a balance
against the landed estate of the people,
without a specie basis. It is no more
necessary to make money of gold and
silver to render it a just balance against
property, than to make a mortgage of
gold or silver to render it of equal value
with a piece of land. The value of the
mortgage depends upon its legal power
over the land and its products. The
Safety Fund money Avill have a legal
representative value which will be capa
ble of purchasing the mortgage, or the
land, or the products of the land. The
mortgage, or the money as such, can be
no more valuable made of gold than of
paper. As paper mortgages amply se
cure individual loans of money,so paper
mortgages will secure the money lsswed
by the Safety Fund. If people will readily
loan gold and silver coin for paper mort
gages on property, they must esteem
the paper mortgages as .valuable as the
coins. A mortgage is a lien upon a
specific piece of property. The Safety
Fund money will be a general lien upon
all property for sale, and a legal tender
in payment for all debts. The mort
gages given to the Safety Fund will be
individual obligations for the payment
of money,Jand will be necessarily local.
But the money issued from them will be
neither individual nor local. It will be
equally good in Maine, New York, Ohio,
and Florida. If its owner does not wish
to lend it to individuals, he can lend it
to any Branch of the Safety Fund at an
interest of one per cent.
It has already been stated that it is no
more necessary to make money of gold
and silver in order to make it good, than
to make a bond on a silver or gold plate
in order to make it good. Still, if the
the people shall insist upon a mixture
of specie in the currency, it can be easily
provided. It will only be necessary that
the interest to be received and paid by
the Safety Fund shall be paid by specie.
By loaning money at one and one-tenth
pr cent., the Fund will always be in re--
ceipt ot many times the interest in
specie that it can be called upon to pay.
This will preserve the use of coins as
money. It appears evident, however,
that the money of the Safety Fund will
fulfil all the functions of a public med
ium of exchange without any admixture
The Safety Fund money will probably
be compared, by some to the assignats
of France, or to the Continental money
issued by the United States during the
Revolution. But they are no more alike
than a good productive soil and a de
sert. There is as mucli difference be
tween the paper assignats issued by
France and the paper money to be
issued by the Safety Fund, as between
two perpetual mortgages, one bearing
interest, and the other bearing no inter
est; the first would be good, the second
worthless. If, as heretofore stated, the
French Government had secured the
payment of the assignats issued to her
citizens by mortgages on productive
landed estate, not exceeding half its
value, and when payment was demand
ed had funded them with government
bonds bearing a yearly interest, they
must have continued good. Both the
mortgages and the assignats would
have been representatives of property,
and the yearly productions of the land
would have secured the annual inter
est, and made them safe. The assignats
became worthless because they were
not representatives of property. If the
government of the United States, in
stead of issuing the Continental money,
had established a Safety Fund, and had
lent money for mortgages on produc
tive land worth double, the amount of
the loan, and had provided notes bear
ing interest to fund the money, such
paper money would have been a repre
sentative of property, and iimrriably
good. The Continental money not be
ing a representative of property, of
course proved worthless. Had our
government instituted a Safety Fund,
it would have had an abundance of
money for the transaction of all busi
ness; we should have sayed the many
millions we paid to France for a repre
sentative of our own propertj', and be
sides, should have prevented the great
injury suffered by the country from
the scarcity of money and high rates of
interest, which then so much retarded
business and production.
The objection may arise that if the
loans of the Safety Fund be confined to
the owners of land, it will place in
their hands a great monopolizing pow
er, and instead of diffusing wealth in
accordance with the labor performed,
will give it to the landholders. But a
little reflection will make it evident
that the abundant supply of money and
the reduction of the rate 6f interest will
be of equal benefit to those who are
without property, and depend on their
daily labor for their support. The
owners of land will obtain loans from
the Fund either to purchase property
or to discharge debts or to pay for labor;
and all the money borrowed for these
purposes will go into circulation, and
be used by others. The owners of land
will not borrow money to keep, for they
would lose the interest on it and be
paying interest on their mortgages to
the Safety Fund. Every farmer owing
money on" mortgage of his farm and
paying seven per cent interest will pro
bably borrow money from the Safety
Fund and pay the debt. The difference
between, seven and one and one-tenth
per cent on his mortgage will be in
favor of the earnings of his own or
others' labor on his farm; the interest
will absorb but a comparatively small
proportion of the products. The re
ciever of the pavment for the mortgage
cannot obtain a higher rate of interest
than that charged by the Fund: he must
either purchase property with the money
or lend it to individuals at one and one
tenth per cent, or to the Fund at one
per cent interest. If he finds that he
can rent out land to others for a term
of years so as to secure one and one
tenth or one and one-quarter per cent
interest, of course he will purchase the
landin preference to funding the money;
and the laborers who can have the use
of land at these low rents will soon lay
up the means to buy farms for themselves.
