WHAT GOLD COINS ARE WORTH.
Recently, in reply to a correspond
ent, the Baltimore Sun stated that a
$20 gold piece is worth $20 by reason
of the weight of gold m it, not by
reason of the government stamp or
inscription. If the gold piece were
melted into a lump, it would still be
worth $20 in the market. There are
23.22 grains, Troy, of pure gold in
the gold dollar. In other. woi"ds, the
gold in a coin obtained no increase
of value in the process of coinage.
2fo appreciable part of its value was
due lo the mint's stamp, and the
proof of this was that if melted down
.the coin was worth as much as be
fore. Whereas, the silver dollar, the
coinage of which it is proposed to
make free, is worth when melted
down but little over 50 cents.
As several correspondents ques
tioned the coriectness of the -statement,
the Sun, to end all question,
addressed inquiries to the director of
the mint at "Washington, with the fol

relative to . the value of gold and U.

41. "What do you give for gold ?"
Answer The government pays
for gold at the rate of $20. G 7 per
ounce, fine, or $18.00 per ounce,
standard, 9-1 Oth fine.
'2. Is there a charge for minting,
and if so, how much is it?"
Answer The government makes
no charge for coining gold.
3. Is there a charge for the cop
per used to prepare gold for the
Answer When the bullion -deposited
is not suitable for coinage
and requires parting and refining,
charges are made for these opera
tions, equal to the expense incurred
in eliminating the base metals and
parting the gold from the silver
when the two metals are combined.
There is also a charge of two cents
per ounce for copper required for
alloy. , Upon gold bullion of stand
ard fineness, that , is, containing 9
lOths gold and 1-1 Oth copper, no
charge whatever would be impose.1.
'4. Will the mint give $1 for
23.22 grains of pure gold ? '

THE BUSINESS MAN'S LUNCH.
Hard Work and Indigestion go
Hand in Hand.
Concentrated thought, continued in, robs
the stomach of necessary blood, and this is
also true of hard physical labor.
When a five horse-power engine is made
to do ten horse-power work something is
going- to break. Very often the hard
worked man coming from the field or the
office will "bolt" his food in a few min
utes which will take hours to digest. Then
too, many foods are about as useful in the
stomach as a keg of nails would be in a
fire under a boiler. The ill-used stomach
refuses to do its work without the proper
stimulus which it gets from the blood and
nerves. The nerves are weak and " ready
to break," because they do not get the
nourishment they require from the blood,
finally the ill-used brain is morbidly wide
awake when the overworked man at
tempts to find rest in bed.
The application of common sense in the
treatment of the stomach and the whole
system brings to the busy man the full en
joyment of life and healthy digestion when
he takes Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets to
relieve a bilious stomach or after a too
hearty meal, and Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery to purify, enrich and
vitalize the blood. The " Pellets " are tiny
sugar-coated pills made of highly concen
trated vegetable ingredients which relieve
the stomach of all onending matters easily
and thoroughly. They need only be taken
for a short time to cure the biliousness,
constipation and slothfulness, or torpor, of
the liver; then the "Medical Discovery"
should be taken in teaspoonful doses to in
crease the blood and enrich it. It has a
peculiar effect upon the lining membranes
of the stomach and bowels, toning up and
strengthening them for all time. The
whole system feels the effect of the pure
blood coursing through the body and the
nerves are vitalized and strengthened, not
deadened, or put to sleep, as the so-called
celery compounds and nerve mixtures do
but refreshed and fed on the food they
need for health. If you suffer from indi
gestion, dyspepsia, nervousness, and any
of the ills which come from impure blood
and disordered stomach, you can cure
yourself with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery which can be obtained at any
drug store in the country.

The readers of this paper, will be
pleased to learn that there least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to care in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Care is
the only positive enre known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Care is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mncoua surtaces of
the system, thereby destroying the foun
dation of the disease, and giving the
patient strength by building up the con
stitution and assisting nature in doing
its work. The proprietors have so much
faith in its curative powers, that they
offer One Hundred Dollars for any case
that it fails to cure. Send for list of
