New nnd 01*1 “Money” Slnng.
From the New York World.
The addition of "beans” to the list of
slang terms for ‘‘money’ is probable.
Not that there is any need of equivalents
for that word. It already has more
synonyms of curious end generally vul
gar origin than any other word in our
The word “gold” itseft was originally
siang. If derived from the old German it
meant ‘‘the yellow,” if from the old Cel
tic “the bright.” The word “dollar” too
is of a slangy origin. It was first given
to the ounce pieces of silver coined by a
German count from his mine in a certain
thal (valley). These were called “thal
ers.” Emigrated to England they be
came “dollars,” and Shakespeare must
have known them es such, for he speaks
of them once or twice in his plays. The
English “pound” was in the beginning a
literal pound weight of silver.
The slang of one period becomes the
orthodox speech of a later one. Thus the
'■greenbacks” of the Oval War were \a
riously known at that time as “bills,’’
•’rags,” “paper money,” “legal tenders.”
“plasters,” “shin-plasters” and “Uncle
Barn’s I O Us.” The one-hundred-dol
lai notes were from the first called “cen
turies.” The little currency notes for 50
cents and let*s were nicknamed “to?-
Among the hundred and one other
aiangy equivalents for money, etill more
or less used, only a few can be readily re
called, such as “the rhino.” “the stamps.”
“boodle.” “sugar.” “the stuff,’’ “the need
ful,” “epondulix,” "the ready,” “the
chink.” “fat,” “the long green.” “the
non." “dough.“ “the quid pro quo,” “the
root” (short for “the root of all evil"),
“ducats.” “shekels,” “soap,” “tin,”
“sand,” “dust.” and “rocks.”
If ever the purification of our language
from slang Is seriously undertaken there
no word in the dictionary for which
bo many irregular terms will have to be
dropped as “money.”

From the Chicago Times-Heraid.
The schoolmaster was jdtting on the
rail qf the bridge over Sugar river as I
ploughed through (he sand with my wheel
He was clicking hie heels together, while
mosquitoes and other insects of the heavy
bottoms circled in the hot morning air.
Sugar river flows through banks and over
slimy masses of mud. It was a source
in Dane county, Wisconsin, and a branch
in Green county known as the Little Su
gar. Th* dark waters have no roman
tic aspect; the bottom lands which the
river once wasted are melancholy. The
schoolmaster looked as dismal as the
stream, over which the crows were hide
ously crying. I said to him.
"This would be a fit place for e trag

“You should have taken the Harrison

I thought Sugar river had affected his
brain, so declined to answer the ancient
conumdrum. He smiled and threw a
chip into the murky waters, where cat

“My school has just ended,” he said.
"I’ve been teaching in these parts the
last term. You don't know children—
thought not, or you would have pushed
me into the river when I asked you that

one of them. They were to present me
with an album to-day because l am

more questions. Could you, sir, retain
your right mind if you were suddenly ask
ed by an imp of six years:
“ 'lf cheese comes after meat what
comes after cheese?’
“Of course, since I see that you are a
city man. you know that a mouse comes
after cheese, but I didn’t. I protested
that I did not know and ctould not guess,
but the question haunted me day and

their ridiculous laughter. As soon as they
were over laughing a boy who once lived
in Beloit asked me:
” ‘Why is a fool like a needle?’
“ ‘Why?’ I asked, eager to be over with
“ ‘Because he has an eye, but no head.’
“Personal application of that joke was
made to me at once.”
“I am patient,” continued the school
master, shying a stone at his satchel,
which stood by the roadway, “but such
idiotic questions from children I was try
ing to educate drove me nearly wild. Life
in the country is not very bright for moi
of the people. I have often thought that
was their own fault, for there is a wealth
of natural and other history about them
wholly Ignored. The people of the coun

from the sky. For instance, sir, why
should a catfish attain the enormous size
that it does in this Insignificant stream of

once mighty Fox, a marvelous stream in
ancient times, or is It a decaying branch
of the once powerful stream that poured
from Luke Michigan westward and south
ward to the Gulf of Mexico? Paidon me,
though, for giving you conundrums
when I have just been complaining of
them. You probably know that in and
about 1832 Abraham Lincoln was fre
quently in the vicinity of this stream and
crossed it several times. You also are
probably aware that Jefferson Davis ooee
camped upon its banks, and was Wi.-e
enough not to attempt to bathe in it. Gen.
Zachary Taylor made a valiant effort to
reach is waters at one time, but small
pox held back his troops. Here, sir,
Black Hawk laughed above the dirty flow
while Stillman fled from him and his
thirty warriors. Yet no one of the com
munity that has been born by the stream,
lived. loved and died in sight of it, knows
aught of these facts. Facts, sir. not mis

( SIIU’S FAMED SAGE.
Remnrknhlp i areer of • onfucins.
Poet and Politician.
From the New York Mail and Express.
In the twentieth year of the Emperor
Ling, 551 B. 0., Confucius, the “all-com
plete, ancient teacher and perfect sage,”
first felt the light in the district of Chi
nese Tsow. His father was Shuh-leang
Heih, w'hose prowess w r as as large as his
stature, and his valor greater than both.
His mother, consort of Hedh’s senility,
and his second wife, was Ching-tsae,
youngest daughter of the family of Yen.
The usual miraculous episodes enclueter
his birth. When Confucius was only three
years old his father' Scholar Heih, died.
Of his early schooling little that is
trustworthy has been preserved. Certain
it is that his house knew full w'ell the
pinch of poverty. At fifteen Confucius,
K’ew', or Confulse, had versed himself in
studies far beyond his years. At nine
teen he contracted an alliance with a
lady of the house of Keen-kwan. In the
following year the stork visited his dwell
ing. Ching-tsae gave birth to a son, Le.
Hi* Public Office*.
Confucius was made keeper of grain
stores, next a warden of public fields and
lands. Even then his humblest duties—
the fabric, of much rich parable and
simile?— were discharged with an uncom
mon thoroughness and conscientious de
votion. At two-and-twenty he flashed
forth into a public teacher; his house be
came the rallying ground of thoughtful,
ardent youths. In 528 B. C. his mother
joined her husband in the valley of the
shadow. Five years after, when Confu
cius, a man of “north, south, east and
west,” was twenty-nine, we find him
studying music under u famous principal
named Seang. B. C. 517 saw him signaled
out as a teacher of proprieties to the son
of one of the chief members of Loo. A
later date discovers him. a musical aco
lyte, student of poetry, history, ceremon
ies, antiquity and ethics, inabibing wis
dom at the court of Chow. Here so en
traneingly did a sage's music appeal to
him that for three full months flesh food
and he were strangers.
Now occurs a much-debated incident,
the rumored divorcing of his wife.
B. C. 500, in the early twilight of his
years, he was appointee! chief magistrate
of Chung-too, and in this capacity proved
himself a manners reformer of no mean
prowess. Next he was respectively as
sistant superintendent of works under Duke
Ting; then minister of crime. During
this last tenure of office*—popularized bv
deference to the verdict of one from
among his counselors, whichever was
most cogent—such became his sway that
no offenders showed themselves.
Confulse was now the darling of the
populace. Delegates of his administration
sp?d far afield, pilgrims flocked in shoals
from other states. In the heyday of his
prosperity, at the turret of his power, ar
rived that tragic throwback, which, fram
a worldy viewpoint, was his undoing. By
the machinetion6 of envious states, it was
cortrived that a cargo of eighty peerless
damozels should be presented to his sov
ereign. These were sent ostensibly as the
portion of a good-will offering, in reality
to seduce die King from the teachings of
his minister. The venomous plot succeeded
only to well. For dejected Confucius began
at s*> a cycle of weary wanderings which
were to lest for thirteen years. Through
nM his hardships and perilous adventures
belief in a divine mission sustained him.
Ill* Period of Woe.
Of those travails and travels, in all like
lihood, were born his most consummate
maxims. Probably to that period we owe
his uplifting of ancestor worship into a
religion, many of his compilations, his im
mortal Analects, his Rules of Propriety
and the contiguous Five Relations of So
ciey to be Observed. Throughout his •x
--istence. from the Alpha of his adolescence
to the Omega of his obsequies, he seems to
have been characterized by a lofty nobil
ity. a grand independence of thought and
speech, a transcendent purity of living.
Upon some alleged stains on his escutch
eon, such as the breaking of a forced oath,
the praising of a gallant lie, the present
writer has not sufficient knowledge or pre
sumption to pronounce.
Chari able. ConfuDe acknowledge 1 the
vital need of education for rich and poor
a’ike. Narrow' as to the functions* of wo
man, he was quit k to see the influence of
right examples end to insist upon their
practice by those in authority. To secure
the common weal he rea iz and that good
rulers are good leaders—benevolent des
pots. If you will—were Indispensable. Alive
before his time, posterity awarded this
matchless conserver and transmitter a
glorious recognition. Fcr two thousand
years countless emperors made ands ill
make adoring pilgrimages to his shrine.
To-day all native eo'Pges raise side tem
ples to his honor; his disciples may be
measured by the hundred million.
Return to Favor.
B. C. 483. by a fortunate twist of fate,
the wanderer could return to Loo. Con
fi;tse was now’ sixty-nin , and thanks to
time and inward mastery, might “fol
low whpt his heart desired without
transgrrafing wMt was right ” He ab
sorbed and diffused wisdom and poetry,
collated history's pebbles and undertook
the reformation cf mu>ic. B. C. 482 was
blazed by the demise of Ms son. Le, to
ward whom he bad. of principle main
tained a stern reticence and digni.y. Of
his daughters, although we know’ one
at lea.*t, he had little or nothing to say.
His declining years were punctuated by
the death of loved apostles, whose Indi
vidual loss apparently affected him more
keenly than that of his own son.
Early one forenoon this klrg without a
throne with trading staff toddled out
into the sunshine As he w*nt he simper
ed h s melincho’y sw n s ng: "The greit
mountain must crumble, the strong b. am

like a plant.” He took to his couch. A
