80,000,000,000,000 MARKS RE
QUIRED TO BRING A
LETTER FROM GER
MANY TO AMERICA
J. 0. Hargesheimer received a let
ter from his sister, who resides in
Berlin, Germany, about two week’s
ago, upon which there was attached
German Marks to the value of eighty
billion, which at that time was
equivolent to about five cents Ameri
can money. The pre-war value of
these stamps was twenty billion dol
Mr. Hargesheimer’s brother-in-law
is a bank cashier in Berlin, and draws
a salary of two billion marks per day;
be would be required to work forty
days to earn enough money to mail
that letter to America.
The price of clothing and wearing
apparel is very moderate according to
letters received by Mr. Hargesheimer
from his brother-in-law, to whom
Mr. Hargesheimer recently sent $5.00
with which he purchased a suit of
clothes, shoes and a shirt.
The letter states that it requires
about six hours to do the little shop
ping that has to be done, on account
of the scarcity of the different articles
both in clothing and groceries.
As a sample of the cost of things in
Berlin we will quote some of the pre
vailing prices according to Mr. Har
gesheimer: 1 egg 75 to 100 billion
marks; coal 4% to 6 billion marks per
100 pounds; 5 pound loaf of bread 4
billion marks; enough wood to burn
one hour would cost 200 billion marks.
An uncle of Mr. Hargesheimer lives
outside the city and raises poultry and
produce and does all his shopping with
produce; he has not handled any
money for many months.
American money goes a long way in
Berlin today. If you have American
money you are waited upon first even
though you are away back in the line
if thy know that you have American

AUTO WRECKED AT RAIL
The railroad crossing on the high
way a half mile south of Ewing was
the scene of a serious auto accident
about 7:30 Christmas night.
Theodore Zaborowski of near In
man, had driven his car to the Jos.
Tomjack home east of Ewing Tuesday
and that evening accompanied by Blair
Spes, Louis, Sylvester and John Tom
jack, had started for Clearwater to
attend a dance. The trip terminated
at the crossing when Zaborowski
pulled too far to the west, the car
striking the rails and landing in the
drainage culvert on the south side of
the track. Extricating himself from
the wreck, Spes made his way to the
F. C. Stanton home nearby and secur
ed assistance. The other boys were
helpedjfrom the debris and taken to
the Stanton home and Dr. Briggs was
gammoned. Upon examination it was
roudd that Louis Tomjack was the
most severely hurt, his collarbone be
ing crushed and head injured. Sylves
ter Tomjack received a gash on thp
chin and injury to his chest, John Tom
jack was bruised about the head and
Zaborowski and Spes escaped with
The car is a total wreck and it seems
almost a miracle that one or all of the
occupants were not killed outright.
The cause given for the accident was
poor lights on the car and the blind
ing headlight of an approaching train.
It is said the latter confused the driver
to such an extent that he mistook the
west railing of the culvert bridge for
the east side, thereby missing the
