METHODS THE BANK TELLERS HAVE FOR DETECTING IT. A Xt 1a Hnoli Kiuiler Thnn It Unril u� Inferior Qimllty u Clmriictr rlntln of All lingua Money-In 18*0 Tli.-rn Wuh #flO> OOO.OOD or I'onr ftlnimy Alloiit. To the casual observer ft. is always ft woudcr that cashiers, bank tellers ami other* who handle large amounts of paper money are able nt a glance to throw out. u bud noU*. Speaking on this tuple an oh! bank toller Haiti; "It must bo remembered tli at in tho (IrHt place Lho it urn who handla money as n husincsa are rnmpellrd to have a very thorough familiarity with Mm np-penrnnce of overy genuine note. Counterfeits do no* appear until after lho genuine has bcun some time in lists ami every part of it 1h wflll known. "It Id not bo wonderful then that after his dally familiarity with tho appearance of a netc tho first clnviat-imi from it should nttrnct attention, wlial It la that does expose tho counterfeit tho beat export* find It difficult to lull They nay thoy know it instinctively. They judge not only by thu looks of a note, but by tho feci of it. "It Is obvious that a counterfeit note must ho widely circulated to make it profitable. No sooner does a counterfeit appear than its description in widely published. Thoso who nrolfkely to suffer by taking counterfeit notes make It their business to bo on tho outlook for new counterfeits, which aro hood distinguishable by aouio easily discovered mark. A teller knows Just what denomination of notes has been counterfeited, and just vrbcro to look for the tell tale marks. Ho notices tho counterfeit as easily as a render notices amiBpelled word. It, is no particular effort. It is u habit, nud becomes a eecond natnre. nrpEiuon quality. "One and the main reason why counterfeits aro easily detected la becausu iu some feature they ore almost uniformly of inferior quality. This is, Indeed, the main protection of tho public. Genuine notes t aro engraved and printed almost regardless of cost, and tho very heat materials Aro used in tho engraving and printing. It is done In large establishments with costly materials and tho befit workmen. It Is practically Impossible for counterfeiters to do work as well. They must work In secret and at a disadvantage, and of necessity cannot luivo the experience to produce such perfect work. **If thoy KOt tho engraving dono uicely thoy fail in tho printing; or, if they get tho engraving nud printing done well, thoy fail In securing the projwr paper. Of lute years thoro has been a good deal of care taken to get paper manufactured expressly Tor tho notes issued by tho government. Tho notional bunk notes aro rtlso issued by the government, ho that tho sources of supply for exactly that kind of paper aro controlled. 1 "fjtfure tiio war It was much nioro dlfll-cult than it is now to detect bad money. There werotben many kinds of bud money. There wore wildcat banks whoso notes were of no value of the same tmmQ as good banks, and the wildcat note* were of tho same form its tho good tuiles. Then there weru many altered notes from lower to higher denominations. "Tho use of greenbacks, or any backs at ail, was rare, ho that the counterfeiter had but cue hide of a note to count t*rft*it. Of la to years the paper is covered front and back with tho figures of the denomination, fco that alteration from a lower to a higher denomination is rare. Before tho war by actual computation four-lift lis of tho bunk note issues wore counterfeited. nocUB monky in 18110. �' Iheroworoin circulation in 1BG0 actual ly fi.UK) different Itinth* of bad money, and ft was estimated that about $ti(;,0iX>,000 of St was afloat. "When tho necessities of the war led to tho government tstmo of paper money all these old banks wout out of existence, and tho old counterfeits went out with iheiu. It was n great boon to the business com-xuuuity to have tho old stuff wiped out and tho now, clean currency put into idr culutton that was current all over tho Union. It was some years before successful counterfeits appeared. . "Tho llrat issue of tho national bank notes . of the denomination of to was practically not counterfeited for fifteen years. Even taking all tho denominations of national bank money and all tho varieties of money issued by tho government, tho number of these varieties is trifling compared with the immense number of banks hufuru tho war whose notes were all different, "It is true wo have moro banks now, hut U roust be remembered that the notes o each denomination issued by all tho national bunks, or for thcirk, are all alike except tho titles. Thu changes hnvo bcim few and many years apart. When a teller learnod tho appearance of the first nates of /.tho denomination of SI issued lu thu national banks it was home years before ho saw a counterfeit, ami of course he du-lecled the counterfeit almost by instinct. "When it is considered how many millions of dollars of the same sort are issued by tho government it is wonderful that Ihogonuine.platea are not oftener used Tor the purpose of prluUug unauthorized ls-oues- Of course it Is pretended that tho safeguards of thu bureau of engraving and printing are ho great that no such wrong could ho done, USING OLD PLAT KB. "But thoro is a well authenticated caso whero the printer actually did print from tho genuine plates without discovery while being watched by a bank officer. Some years ngo thoro was a famous suit in which tho government IInuncial ageuts in Now York claimed to have redeemed u certain issue which proved to bo unauthorised, and tho experts wore very much in coutlict iia to whether the Issuo was actually counterfeit or printed from government plates. It was finally decided by a jury that tho Issue was counterfeit, althuugu same reputable experts swore that it was printed from tho government plateti. "Whon you look at it a moment ft fs not nearly bo wonderful that a teller should detect a bad note as that a prouf reader should detect bad npclling, it is only another Instance of the work of tho t.r.'ilued * eye- The export mechanic sees things at a - glance that an ordiuary observer would not notice. This is particularly true of all .kinds of artistic work. Tho uees tho defect, and can hardly describe ic iu wonls. although lie may be able tu correct it. "Some years ago there used to bo men traveling about tho country teaching tho \ art of detecting counterfeit money. But ' ^A&ybodY who kuow how to put them to the tot could often show that their boasted ' �UU was of llttlu value compared with that of (lie shrewd bank teller fu thu habit of handling Urge amounts of money, who - could not tall why he threw out tho bad note, but yet could throw It out with almost unfailing accuracy."--New York rovm; or. n rami was u� neiimun, nrmii'.h it in a way runt had nrr poti-cr to wotiiitl.

A high stockndoof split logs standing on cud, deeply sunk in tho earth, incloses about two acres of grou nd. Heavy gates, opening outward, sway harshly on greut iron hiuges. A well is In tho centor of the inclosuro. Low log buildings, covered with earth, ara penttered along tho stockada. A couplo of sandhill cranes stood expectantly at tho well, waiting patiently for a thirsty man Co draw water. A white tailed deer, with a broad blue ribbon on her neck, walked daintily around. Her cool black muzzle, studded with drops of dow, brilliant iu tha slanting rays of tho rising sun, was slyly thrust Into my hand, giving mo n slight shock of surprise. t By the stables stood a cow moose, standing fio awkwardly with crooked legs and humped hack, aud the pendulous lip which Mark Twniu culls "tho Hapsburg," that her very ugliness excited my pity. A maofio calf-her miniature iu ugliness-stood stupidly by her side. Standing at the well, facing tho grand Rocky mountain range, I drew a bucket of water. Drinking deeply, repulsing the whilo tho advances of the female crane with my moccasined foot, I got the reward of all men who reject tho advances of the fender sex, and was soon engaged in repelling u furious attack on me by the long legged twain. Tho attack was fierce. Their long, hard bills clashed viciously as they KCorufuJly scolded me, and i was on the paint of beating a disgraceful retreat when 1 heard, "Ilo, Frank! come have n mouthful or whisky 1" Recognizing the voice I gladly left the cranes in uudispnted posMessiou of the water bucket and across tho parade to the store of the fur company. Bidding Burr "Good mornini;" I declined tho whisky on grounds uuutce&sary instate; yet the barrel had a yellow head, and-aud-well. I knew the tap. I sat and talked to Burr, who was in charge of this extensive store, and bofore breakfast he went over it with me. A curious stock. Everything you could not find in an eastern country was hero. As wo walked ho explained tho business to me. Alluring? Not at all. He, looking nt his watch, said, "We have yet time before breakfast to look nt my nniro." Tho sudden change in the expression of tho vaiw, tho softening of tho even as this bard Indian trader spoke of his hovse excited my curiosity aud I went with hiln. Ho took mo to a low log stable, tho chinks carefully mudded, tho open shutter and door well made und carefully fitted, so as to exclude the buffalo gnats in season. A few short, heavy chains stretching from post to post kept the horse in und tho other animals out. With breast pushing against tho topmost chaiu,with her bund some broad head thrust out, nnd alert ears cocked forward, stood a snow white mare. She was looking at the mooBo with a surprised expression on her fuce, as much as to say, "Well, you have not growu handsomer durlug the night." Burr whistled, and with a joyful neigh tho mure turned her head toward htm and bade him welcome. Thu greeting between man and animal wan almost Lender. The mare rubbed her tiuse gently against his breast and the man stand softly stroking her delicate neck. Unlocking thechaius, they dropped. Burr walked toward the well. The mare, with dainty su-ps, arched neck ami hVcklug tafi, followed behind him, or, caressingly advancing to his side, rubbed her body against his, as though the mere contact with the man was grateful to her. IDs arm instinctively lifted aud dropped across her neck. The two walked on together unconscious of any incongruity. A bucket of water stood at the welL The high bred creature smelt of it, and detecting my previous presence, disdainfully refused to drink after me. Emptying tho bucket Burr drew another, and of this the mare drank slowly, her white face gradually sinking' Into the shallow vessel. All across the parade, on tho return to tho stable, the love scene was re-enacted. Ait they passed mo the mare showed hernversion to a stranger by laying back her ears and thrusting out her white toothed muzzle toward me in a vicious manner, causing me to step hastily back. They passed into t you love that white maro?" Ho looked kindly at me, and with Road smile repliedt "To-night, after the men are In bod 1 win Celt you the sto.'y." Tiicn urtskly "Frank, this U not business. Eat, my boy, then clear out, and fish or hunt. You will find some prairie hens In tho big willow thicket about five miles below here. I saw them the other day. Shoot same, To-nl^bt wo will have a feast, and I will open my two last bottles of sherry, and we will talk." His face hardened. The cold, deadly look returned to the gray eyca, and our break-d 3 started for the willows. There 1 ueatly phot the heads ofT of six grouse. Then jointing a light trout polo I whipped the clear pools of the south fork of lho Teton, and wan soon rewarded by a string of fine half pound trout. Then came the pleasant walk back through the cool dry air aud over the crispy itrass of tho north. What a luxury life was frt this valley of thoTefon. I turned my .-poils over to the Bmiling Indian woman who acted as cook for Burr. The rest of the day 1 spent on horseback running nnudope with a lot of half blood Indium*. At i* o'clock supper was eaten. The sherry was brought out, and I scattered on the table a handful, my last, of Rosa Conchas that had never paid"duty, ami as we sat smoking Burr told mo this story: "In the fall of ISOS I thought It might be profitable to start a trading post iu tho Yellowstone* vidlay. Learning from the Blackfcet that tho Sioux wore camped on the south side of tho river, I determined to ride over uud see what arrangement* I could make with them. "I crossed the Belt mountains, and riding down the valley was soon at their camp, I on the north sldo of the river, they on the south, I sat on my horso and hailed tho camp. No answer. I could see pleuty of Indians walking about, aud again 1 bailed. No answer. I shouted myself hoarse, and thn only notion taken of mo was by an old buck, who walked to tho river bank, looked at mo, made an insulting gesture mul slowly walked off. I went there to trade, and, having got angry nt the treatment, though I well knew that i ought lo leave tho valley at once, I, like a fool, resolved tu cross thu stream und brave tbe danger. "So I forded and rodo into camp. I spoke to no one, no one spoke to mo. The huIIou braves turned their backs on me ns I rodo up tho street. The young girls looked curiously nt me. Hiding slowly along I cooled rapidly. I saw that / was not wanted, and 1 at last fully realized that I was in danger. 1 did not dare to ride to thu south, out of tho camp, nor did I have courago enough to ntteL pt te recross tho river. "Before tno stood a great tent made of hnfTulo skins. It was thu largest I had ever kccu. * halted, dismounted and stood silently at tuy horse's head. Nu ono noticed me. Italian:* went past mo apparently not seeing mo. At last n young woman camo and stood before me. "Looking right into my eyes she said: " 'Wnnt do you want?' '�1 looked her coldly in tho face, and I made no reply. 1 "Smiling she asked: " 'What brim;* yon hero?1 , "Steadily 1 gazed into her eyes and was ! voiceless. "She IcfV t�e nud disappeared into tho great lodge. ">oon an Indian warrior in full paint, with how and strung arrow in bis hands, came to mo. Speaking Blackfoot he said: " 'Why are you in this camp?' "To him T replied, *I wish to trade with you,1 Moro men came. They took my horse, and seizing hold of my arm they led me into the great lodge. Here I was seated, and a t.-ounciJ "Ms held. I sal und listened to them talk of what itwas best to do with so presumptuous a white man. "Some Wei-gin favor of trading. Tho large majority of Indians were in favor of torturing me. It was soon decided that 1 should be tortured, and they sat nud discussed the many methods. After a two dayH* talk it was decided to bum me. I w:is in a strange condition mentally, I would listen to a plan of torture as though It was some other man they were talking about, and I would comment to myself ou that plan as giving tho chap but little chance for Ids life. But when the dusky brave who talked Blackfoot told mo that I was to die by llro the next day I understood perfectly that I was tho man they had been talking about, and replied, 'I know it,' Clustering around me they asked if I had understood all the talk. 'Yes, I had.' 'Then why not answer tho maiden when she spoke, to you?' 'I came, not to talk to squaws, but to trade with mcu.' No use. I could do nothing by soft talk, and having played my hand /ln�lly resigned myself to my fate. I noticed that the girl who had first spoken tu me in front of tho lodge was watching me. She would quickly glance at me, and then drop her eyes on the buckskin Hliirt she was embroidering with Crow hair. Several times I noticed this, and once I replied with a smile. "The lodge emptied. All were gone except the girl. She quickly eumo to my side, apparently to rofold some buffalo robes, and in a whisper said: 'You aro to die to morro"'. To-night 1 will have the best horse in the camp saddled und stand on the outside of the lodge. I will have the lent cut from the outside. You jump through, mount aud ride for your life. You may escape. You will burn if you stay." Then, with a smile: 'The innro is mine. She is the fastest animal in the valley of the Yellowstone. I give her to you.1 'She felt me, and quickly resumed her work. Am fihe wove tho hair of many Crow scalp locks into the shirt I sat looking thankfully at her. She never looked at intt again. A* I m\v a cbnuco for my life my heart beat so loudly that I thought it would he heard. I calmed my face and waited. I ate fairly of supper. I smoked a pipe. AH were very kind and attentive tome. Night was passing away, uud still the Indians lingered, looking at the man they wero to burn on the morrow, 1 leaned back against tho tent to rest myself, when f felt a hand gently pushing me forward. Sitting whistling I felt the point of a knife coma through and strike ,i;y neck. 1 did uol Ilinch. I could feel the blood trickle down my back. I could feci the knife- carefully drawn down uutil it hit the ground. Still whistling 1 wuitcd, my heart thumping, my blood on (Ire- waiLcd a ininnu! to give whoever cut the tent time to escape. Then grasping my heart, nud nerves for an iustuul 1 gathered myself and turned backward through the opening. "Instantly jumping to my feet r vaulted Into the saddle that was on the buck of white horse that stood there, and in tha midst or yells, of rlflo Bhob*, of a pock of howling dot*. �*e rushed out of the camp. It nee mod to me as though a thousand horsemen wero in pursuit of tno instantly, "Wo galloped up tho river to a bend I had eecn. Dashing in we forded It under a Are that made Miu water boll around us, and were out of water and on the level land to the north of the river before any of the Sioux were half way ncroaa. Striking tha trail to the Bozemau Pass I took it. and knowiug It pushed boldly on, and though hotly pursued my horse outlasted theirs and I escaped.

My eyes burned muartly when I returned to the agency. "Dally while hunting I had seen the (ow, black cfmufo tu the north that hull* cote tho formation or marshaling oT tho winds of tho frozen north. Daily the south wind swept them beyond the northern horizon, but tho next nairn'mp; found them looming portentously In the northern sky. On my return to the agency I found a runner had just got In from liclly river, In British America, with important now* Cor me. It was necessary that 1 should go up at oneo. I started tho next morning. My eyes hurt dreadfully. "I always go to tho Belly viver when the snow fs on thogronnd by tho way of the Sweet Grass hills, and there I camped one night. One side oT the hills is always bare of show, nnd there is a spring of good water on the northern side of the center hill. A strong south wind was blowing when 1 started, lmt by noon I saw thu clouds to the north suddenly rlso up. 1 knew that tho marshaling of lho north winds wits completed, and they weru eager fov lho assault on the soft south wb^d. "On came tho black cloud. Tho south wind still blew fiercely, but it could not stem tho assault from tho arctic region. Birds (lew south before tliestorm; antelope and dem* wero running for shelter. I had reached my camping ground, and stood looking far off to tho north, seeing tho landmarks disappear ono by opo as tho head of tho 'blizzard' reached them and shrouded them in its icy breath. "A calm. "Then, with a mighty rush and n loud noise, tho head of the 'bliv.z.urd* swept past me. The air was tilled with particles of ice that cut through almost horizontally and seemed us if they won id never fall. Colder, ever colder, grew tho wind, nud denser tho air us the Ice particles thickened.. "I sought shelter in tho rocks. Buckling tho clothing ou the mare I turned her loose, knowing that she would not leave me. Then I Iny down on my blankets, aud wrapping my beaver cloak nround mo I tried to sleep. "1 began thinking and could not sleep. Tho buffalo had not come south that winter, and tho wolves wero gaunt aud hungry. As they follow a horseman over tho plains In the summer, so they do iu tho winter, only moro of them, and those great, gaunt, famine breeders, the gray and black ones, go in largely increased numbers. I hud nnd u pack of them at my heelB all day, and now thoy cropped up in my thoughts. "Fiunlly 1 slept. When 1 awoke it was dark. Holding up my naked hand I felt the* icy sweat of the 'blizzard' strike sharply against It. Tha roar of tho wind still continued.
