Second That "money" by which they mean ,:coin," or substitutes for ' coin" is created as a necessity in and for the purpose of facilitating those exchanges. Even John Stuart Mill, from whom better things might be expected, Is lost in this intellectual quagmire. Hear him: "Things which by barter would ex change for one another, will, if sold for money, sell for an equal amount of it, and so will exchange for one another still, though . the process of exchanging them will consist of two operations instead of only one." Mill, Political Economy, Book 3, Chapter 7, Section 3, Page 24, of Volume 2, Ap pleton edition, 1893. "The relations ' of commodities to one another remain unaltered by "mon ey: the only new relation introduced Is their relation to money itself; how much or how little money they will exchange for; In other words, how the exchange value of money itself is determined." Ibid, page 24. "The supply of a commodity means the quantity offered for sale. But it is not usual to speak of offering mon ey for sale. People are not usually said to buy or sell money. This, however, is merely , an accident of language. In point of fact, money is bought and sold like' other things." Ibid, page 26. The . last extract proves that Mill himself saw that "coin" is merely a commodity in exchanges, and is used as such. The superficial character of the thought bestowed by these writers be comes manifest the instant one looks at the facts. They are deceived by the childish assumptions received from a barbarous past and accepted by them without the smallest attempt at in quiring into their validity. Assuming that "money" is "coin," or some sub stitute for coin, and that it was in stituted with the intent to facilitate the exchange of commodities for each other, each of these writers proceeds to illustrate that proposition by stat ing a case which is always the same statement with a change of names Here It is: "A tailor has a suit of clothes worth $25 and desires to exchange them for other commodities, and of courses without loss to himself. He wants $5 worth of pork and $5 worth of flour. The difficulties of exchange thu? il lustrated constitute the necessity for coin." Running through the productions of these writers, with immaterial varia tions, is found the frame-work of the above problem. Now, in the first place the purpose is to prove that coin "facilitates the exchange of com modities for other commodities." But before they are through, it turns out that their purpose is to -prove that on can exchange a coin with great facility for all commodities. The real-question is,' In what w?y does "coin" facilitate the exchange of the suit of clothes for the needed pork and flour? And by the supposition, the people where the supposed tailor L operating have no "money" and conse quently no "coin." The "Professor of Economics" is supposed to discover them :'n this deplorable condition, and sets forth the dilemma and proceeds by the use of coin to extricate them from it. Now, the first absurdity 13 that in such circumstances the quantity of the value of the suit of clothes is, in the example given, always expressed in the "money" term and that always constitutes "price." Then the real problem is how a tailor may exchange $25 worth of clothing for $5 worth of pork and $5 worth of flour, without loss to himself. There can be but one answer to this: He cannot do it. Instead of perceiving the fundamen tal impossibility of such a thing, they merely dwell upon the difficulties that are ofcen felt in the country and small towns, having a "money term" and supplied also with "coin," namely, "making the change." There is no more difficulty in the proposition to exchange a suit of clothes worth $25, without loss, for $5 worth of pork and $5 worth of flour, than there is in the proposition to exchange without loss a $20 bank bill for a $5 gold coin and a $5 treasury note. The thing cannot be done. But they ring the changes upon these "difficulties" and point out on the first place the "difficulty" of find ing some orie needing the clothes, who has that quantity of pork and flour which he wishes to exchange toe the particular suit offered. Then vher. these difficulties are overcome, the exchange cannot be made because the things are not of an equal quantity of value. It never occurred to thum that if the tailor preferred the pork and flour to the suit of clothes, and he and the other party agreed upon the exchange, that the question of differ ence in quantity of value, which con stitutes the difficulty, would be elimi nated. Neither the clothes nor the pork and flour had any "price" fixed and stamped upon them by law at. which they must be accepted In ex change. But they tell us it would be unfair to give a suit of clothes of the value of $25 for food of the value of $10. It is plain that this is true. The man who owns the clothes should receive the quantity of value expressed by the term $15, in addition to the named quantity of pork and flour, to make the quantities of value equal. But this as sumes that these people have a means of expressing quantity of value, which begs the whole question. The "Professor'.' here jumps to the conclusion that "coin" comes in at this point as the sole solution of the difficulty, and shows that an. eagle and a half eagle would equalize the ex change But why a coin? Would a $20 gold piece help the case? Not in the least. If the owner of the food had a , cow ..which the .. tailor . would agree to take for the balance, the cow would perform the function just na well as the boasted "coin;" for unless the tailor will agree to accept the $15 difference in the quantity of val ue, the exchange must fail in any case. , Such authorities never perceive tit real difficulties that surround the ex change of heterogeneous commodities for eat h other. The real difficulty i3 not how to exchange things for each other, whose quantity of value is ex pressed in a money term, and w' ose "price" is thus known. The difficulty is the heed of a term which stands ever as the" symbol of a fixed quan tity of value, no matter what the com modity may be, and which symbol, aided by the numerals, will always ex press the degree of intensity of the force of demand for all commodities at any given time and place. And the expression of that degree of demand is the "price." What is needed to facilitate ex changes is a means of setting prices. "Coin" in such cases is simnlv an other commodity, and unless the Dar- ties concerned happen to have a coin or coins of the exact quantity of value required, no exchange, without loss, can be made either with them or with out them. Coin can do no more to facilitate exchanges between any 'two other given commodities, than can any other third commodity, divided into the like parcels, and for which then is an i qtal quantity of the force of demand in action. On the other hand "money" does facilitate all such exchanges; and "money" does so because it is a de vice through which we may express an estimate or appraisal of the quan tity of the force of demand for each commodity, and the consequent quan tity of its "valuation," which when so expressed is "price." When the quan tity of value of a fixed weight or measure of any two commodities thus expressed Js identical, their quantity of value is equal, because their pric' is equal; and that fixed weight or measure of tha one article i3 the ex change equivalent of th.-j given weight or measure of the other article.

Hurd, n8 W, Third St, Musca tine, la., is well known throughout her section or Iowa as an ardent worker in the M. E. Church. She says: "LaGrippe left me with a severe case of nervous depression and nervous dyspepsia, which soon affected my heart. I suffered from sleeplessness, head ache, extreme nervousness and twitching of the muscles. The slightest exertion would cause shortness of breath, a numbness of my body and hot flashes w th pain. I will left you what I am constantly telling my friends . that Dr. Miles' Heart Cure cured me so that all these disagreeable symptoms lelt me. I may add that for severe pain I have never found anything to equal Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills and think the Nerve and Liver Pills are a wonderful stomach remedy." "Our son was stricken down with heart trouble in his twentieth year. For two months we got no sleep with him at night, so we commenced to use Dr. Miles' Heart Cure and Nervine with the Nerve and Liver Pills and today he h sound and well. In , fact he passed a physical examination since his sickness ana is with the Army in the Philippines. I desire to add that Dr. Miles' Anti-F"aiu Pills have certainly beenaloon, to me. I am frequently troubled with- sick and nervous headaches and I have never found anything that would relieve me so quickly and leave me feeling so well there after." Mrs. Alice Moad, Buffalo, Mo.
