; The Pound Is Straight Business Mon-
ey but the Guinea Is the Gentleman'
Money A Nice Distinction In Charges
and In Payments.
"I'miny ihiiij.'." said tho writer who!
had just reeeived a cheek for 2 2n. !
from London "how the editor over iu i

"They've two kinds of money over I
tin re. One kind Is straight business'
money. An even 'J would have meant
in olToci that I had performed a rou-j

and that. I was holnr I'fiid for mechan-

"Hut the editor adds an extra shil-

ineiins that 1 am not supposed to hnve

- for art's sake.
".My cheek is written 'Two guineas'

ary art. Yet tho (inures on tho cheek

"These two kinds of money guineas
and pounds show up in many curious
ways. All professional men ore paid
in guineas. If yon are running a big
private school you make a charge In
guineas for tuition and parents of
your pupils pay you in guliieatt be-
cause you're supposed to bo merely
engaging in an altruistic philanthropic
project of building brawn and brain
for llrltain. Hut you pay the teachers
lu your school in wmndH sterling for
they're supposed to le working for
pay not for love.
")f you're a doctor you make your
bills for professions I services out lu
guineas. I'.arrlalera are pa id iu guln-
as. - Horse race prizes are) given iu
tgulnon.sTfor all gentlemen's races.
"The most curious ;mliture of til Is
tho clergy man's pay. This is queer
mixture of commercial and profession-
al Ideas. The charge of a parish Is
known as a living and Is paid in
pounds sterling but If a wedding or a
christening takes place in the parish
the clergyuiun receives a personal fee
always guineas instead of pounds.
"Artists are ld in guineas. The
la to .Tauies Mac.N'eill Whistler who had
a dclluhtfu! habit of turning a keen
wit on friends and making enemies !
theichy was once paid for a work of j
art in pounds sterling a delicate im-
plication that Whistler whs a dauber :
and a tyro.
"Two trades aiu paid in guineas for
goods purchased but other trades are
paid in pounds sterling. These trades
ore the interior decorator and tho Jew-
eler. The jeweler's goods are suppos-
ed to be works of art and such com-
iiiercial artleles as wateh chains and :
Watches arc priced in guineas t'er- '
tain swell and exclusive London tai-
lors to whom you have to be intro-
duced by the way. charge you in
guineas for the coats and trousers thev

luel ly paid in guineas for their alb-ml
mice. Thev are now paid in hiiiih1s

that it saves the expense of one lu rsoand hind m.n. Wc

is the best one made; that is why xve sell it in preference to
all others. It has more adjustments is more easily operated
