Having determined the nature and
origin of value, we must next inquire
into its relation to money. Knowing
that value stands in some intimate re
lation to money and that value is sim
ply oar estimation of quantity of a
modi? of manifestation of force, called
"demar.d.'- it will manifestly be ad
vantageous to investigate the methods
adopted in dealing with those other
modes of manifestation of force
called gravitation, light, heat, clec
tricty, etc., as well as the dimensions
In .-i)ace, and duration in time.
The object must be to learn, if we
can, the purpose to be gained in deal
ing with the force of demand, under
which quantity of force of demand is
ap:;rohrtded f.nd valued, and how it,
like ollic 'fcn.-ee of nature, may be
brought i.ndf r the dominion of man.
From Kiitli investigation it will be pos
sible to loam the origin, nature and
f-inction of money.
la the final analysis the total con
tents of the human mind are reduci
ble to tliR cens-ciousness of force op
erating in space and time. Force is
the l'orra of our consciousness of all
the.phenonema of the universe. Space
is tlx form of our consciousness of co
existences. And time is the form of
our consciousness of sequences.
Our consciousness of phenomena as
force, occupying two or more points in
space, involving the conception of co
existence, gives rise to the notion of
extension. This we conceive as being
of one, two or three dimensions. The
perception of successive events, in
volving the consciousness of se
quences, gives rise to the notion of
duration in time.
It will be found that what is re
quired in each case is to ascertain and
In order that we may definitely
know the various recognized modes of
force, and the different dimensions of
extension in space, as well as of dura
tion of time nd make that knowl
edge serviceable to us it becomes
necessary not only to invent or dis
cover some appliance for ascertaining
and determining quantity of each, but
also in addition we must create a de
vice for expressing those quantities,
when so ascertained and determined.
It is evident that the appliances
first employed to ascertain quantity of
force, extension and duration were
crude and inexact Necessarily the
devices for expressing those quanti
ties were correspondingly imperfect.
As the human intellect developed and
human knowledge became more ex
tensive and more exact, both the
appliances for determin
i n g and the devices for ex
pressing quantity in each of
these fields became more and more
accurate: At length mathematics be
ing applied to the creation of devices
to express quantity of force, exten
sion, or duration, gave the world the
systems of weights and measures, now
in use, by which it has become prac
ticable to express with exactness any
given quantity of force, under any
known form, or of extension in space,
or duration in time.
When we look abroad upon the
phenomena of the universe, considered
simply as a manifestation of force in
space and time, and contemplate our
conceptions of extension in space and
duration in time, we find ourselves
upon an illimitable ocean, with no
natural divisions or monuments con
stituting a standard; and we, unfur
nished with any means either of as
certaining or expressing quantity of
either. As we are not here concerned
with the concrete appliances invented
or adopted for ascertaining and de
termining quantity, we will only
glance at them and then carefully con
sider only those devices created to en
able us to express those quantities
after they have been ascertained by
There being three dimensions of ex
tension in space, it is apparent that a
separate appliance for ascertaining, as
well as a distinct device for expressing
quantity, is necessary for each.
Extension of one dimension only is
length, without breadth or thick
nesswhich defines a line.
Extension of two dimensions gives
length and breadth, without thick
ness which defines a surface.
Extension of three dimensions pro
duces length, breadth, and thick
n e s s which defines body. '
Not only is an appliance to ascer
tain quantity of each necessary bu
also a device becomes equally neces
sary to express quantity of each of
these; and we have called those de
vices "linear," "square," and "cubic"
measures, corresponding with the
three dimensions in space.
There is in human affairs an urgent
need for a device by means of which
to express quantity of each of those
dimensions of space; and that neces
sity brought forth such a device, the
purpose of which is to enable us to
express quantity of extension of the
three dimensions, after having by
suitable appliances ascertained that
When we undertake to deal with se
quences in time, we perceive at once
the necessity of a device by means of
which we may express quantity of
Force, notwithstanding its myriad
forms, is our fundamental conscious
ness of all existence. This force, more
inscrutable than the Spliynx, becomes
manifest to us through our various
faculties, under the forms of gravi
tation, sound, light, heat, magnetism,
chemical affinity, electricity, demand,
etc. Each of these forms under which
force manifests itself requires a sep
arate device by means of which to
express quantity of that particular
form of force.
Let us next try to ascertain what is
the essential element constituting each
of these devices.
In the case of duration in time
which, unlike the others, has but one
form, we find this device with us to
consist of the word "d a y," which we
have divided into hours, minutes, and
.Great confusion exists in the minds
of men as to what our knowledge of
these things really is. People im
agine when they use the word "day"
that it is the name of an object, as
tangible as a horse "or a tree. It is
nothing of the kind. The word "day"
is the term adopted to stand as the
symbol of the quantity of duration in
time required by the earth to complete
one revolution upon its own axis.
The earth itself, in its changing re
lation to- the sun, is the appliance
made use of by man to ascertain and
determine quantity of duration; but
we use the word "day" as tiia symbol
to express that quantity. The quan
tity of duration required in the pro
cess, we name a "day;" and because
.we cannot in any way deal with the
quantity of duration itself thus taken,
we deal with the chosen symbol in
stead, as if it were itself the quan
tity of duration for which it stands;
just as in algebra we deal with the-
symbol "x" as if it were itself thp
unknown quantity for which it stands.
We truly have no knowledge of the
quantity of duration for which our
symbol called "day" stands. We can
not know whether it is a long time or
a short time; we only know it is
that quantity of duration in time
in which the earth revolves upon iU
axis; and we express that quantity
by the symbol "day."
We bring to our help the aid of
mathematics, and treating the word
"day as if it were itself a fixed and
unchanging quantity of duration
chosen as a standard, with which to
compare other quantities of duration,
we use that word as the symbol of the
standard unit of duration, and make
it by the help of the numerals ex
press any quantity of duration, in
multiples or fractions of that unit.
Any given quantity of duration may
by the use of this device be expressed
as so many times that symbol which
stands for the standard unit of dura
tion, or as equal to it, or such a frac
tional part of it.
But when we have so expressed it,
that expression is but a symbol stand
ing for a fixed quantity of duration,
taken as a standard, of which we
know nothing; except that we call it
a "day." Neither is it requisite that
we should know anything more of it,
provided it shall always symbolize a
quantity of duration that is fixed and

A New Catarrh Core, Wh'ch is Rapidly Com
ing to the Front.
For several years, Kucalyptol Guaiacol and
Hydrastin have been recognized as standard rem
edies for catarrhal troubles, but they have al
ways been given separately and only very recent-
ly an ingenious chemist succeeded in comHning
them, together with other antiseptics into a
pieiisant ffective tablet.
Druggists sell the remedy under the name of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets and it has met w th re
markable success in the cure of nasal catarrh,
bronchial and throat catarrh and in catarrh of

catarth cure I have evertried."
A leading physician of Pittsburg advises the
use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets in preference to
any other treatment for catarrh of the heac,
throat or stomach.
