1st October 1885.-Introduction of sixpenny tariff.
Sixpenny illustrated magazines commenced with Good Words (1860) and the Quiver (1861), both religious in tendency.
They published paragraphs in the newspapers, articles in the magazines, sixpenny pamphlets, five-shilling books.
If a horse to be shod, or any broken tool were left with a sixpenny piece at the entrance of the cave the repairs would presently be executed.
The process is the same as that of finding the sum or differ I ence of 3 sixpences and 5 fourpences; we cannot subtract 3 sixpenny-bits from 5 fourpenny-bits, but we can express each as an equivalent number of Ones.
