The Hand Kiss.
The kiss of the hand ia undoubtedly
ancient, and therefore is not derived
t:-;n:i that of the lips, but probably the
converse is true. The hand kiss is
i.!..se'y averred to be developed from
i viio obeisances in which the earth,
i ie foot and liie garments v.-ero kissed,
i'-.e hind and cheek f-ucceeding in order
i' lime and approach to e juality of
rank. Dut it is doubtful if that was tbu
a tual ordor, and it is certain that at
;:;. time when hand kissing began there
w. re less 11 timorous gradations of rank
t.Kin at a later stage.
Kissing of the "hands between men is
ai -.itioned in the Old Testament, also
by Homer, Pliny and Lacian. Tiio kiss
-s applied reverentially to sacred ob
j -t. sucit as stattK':' of ttie gods, as is

An old treasury official, in speaking of
ihe fraud, gave me some interesting
facts concerning this species of robbery.
"There are half a dozen ways of getting
gold off coins,"' said he, "but the two
most in vogue are those where acid is
used, and in the 'sweating' process. The
iatter is most in vogue among Polish
Jews and Italians, who make a regular
business of it.
"In the first place they secure a- Btout
canvas bag and fill it about half full ol
gold coins. The top of the bag is tied,
and then the coins are shaken together
for hour, at a time. The friction of one
coin nibbing against the other wears oil
considerable gold, and it is deposited at
the bottom of the bag. Each time 0(1
worth of gold coin is treated to the
'sweating process the Italian will prob
ably secure i?2Q worth of dust. The
coins when taken out look somewhat ohi
as if they had been in circulation a
longtime but they will always be ac
cepted by persons not used to handling
"To a person familiar with the frauds,
however, it is always easy to detect a
coin that has been treated to a 'sweat.'
The Italian will always take new coin
for Ihe purpose, and if a person will only
f top to think he can also detect a light
coin. The gold does not wetir off as
rapidly as is generally supposed . in ordi
nary circulation. Therefore when a per
son finds a coin which from its date is
only two or three years old, that has a
very worn appearance, it has andoubtod-h-
boon treated To a 's-.vr-t.' Thse
coins will always be found short weight,
and people will save money if they
watch the date and condition of the
pieces they receive.
"The process of removing gold by an
acid bath is now resorted to more gen
erally than the old sweating fv -tern, as
it is harder to detect the sho-lag.1 in th?
coins. On 'sweated' coin the figures and
milling are worn, while on the others
the d??g::s are not rt all injured. To
detect Miertage in th? iatter coin weigh

What I and Is Not Perpetual Motion.
As is generally known, a perpetual
motion msichine is one to be moved by a
power furnished by the machine itself
and not ir n any source outside of it.
A iniil or n clock run by the incessant
rise and faii f the tide 13 not perpetual
motion. 1 either is a msichine that runs
by the power of terrestrial or other mag
netism, or of the wind, or of variations
in the weight or the atmosphere, or by
electricity coming from outside of the
machine, or by the force of heat coming
from the sun. A wheel that could al
ways of itself keep more weight at one
bide thsm the other and thus turn so
long as its materials lasted would be
perpetual motion, and such has been the
form of mcf t of the machines invented
for the purpose. Chicago Herald.
