TO LAUNDER PAPER MONEY
Indiana Man Devises Machine That
Will Wash and Iron Soiled
It costs the United States govern
ment one and one-third cents to maniF
facture a $1 bilL When the bill be-;
comes soiled through continual han-i
dling it is sent to the treasury depart
ment, which destroys it and issues a.
nice new clean bill in its place. The"
same may be said of all other paper
currency of large denominations.
Now comes a Shelbyville, Ind., in
ventor. F. B. Cbuiohill, with a ma
chine for washing, ironing and other
wise laundering paper money. Accord
ing to the Inventive Age. Washington,
the treasury department redeemed
$1.1S3.000.000 in soiled bills last year
and issued new ones in place of them.
Kighty per cent of the bills might
have been washed at a cost of one
tenth of a cent per bill and reissued
at a considerable saving in cost to the
Mason and His Precious Gold Pieces.
" John Mason, the player, has carried
three $20 gold pieces in his change
pocket ever since the new issue of
Jthat specie, the .two new coins. St.
Gaudens' with and without "In God
We Trust," and the old piece with
Liberty's" head. At the stage door
of the Thirty-ninth Street theater in
New York recently an old man
begged the actor to help him secure
a night's lodging. John tossed the
beggar supposedly two silver half dol
lars, but in reality two of his favorite
gold coins. The old man. noting the
denominations, actually ran after his
benefactor and pulled at his coat, in
tending to inquire if the gold were
really given him in earnest. Before
he could open his mouth, however.
Mason pushed him back, exclaiming.
"Not twice in one night, old man."
""But do you mean it?" asked the beg
gar. "Certainly, answered Mason.
"Forty dollars, mister, cried the man.
"Mot on your life," called Mason, as
his cab moved away, and then to his
companion, "Think of that because
I give him more than he asked for he
thinks I'm easy demands $40."
The Growing South.
The south is forging ahead at a
great rate. The fourteen southern
states, with Missouri and Oklahoma,
have a population of 32.000,000. or
only 18.000,000 less than the tetal pop
ulation cf the United States in 1880.
Since 1S80 the sixteen southern states
have Increased the annual value of;
their mineral production from $20,
000,000 to $340,000,000, as against
$450,000,000 in the whole country in
1880. Their manufactured products
have a value within $2,000,000,000 of
the valwe of the whole country thirty
years ago. In 1SS0 the railroads of the
country had an aggregate length of
93,300 miles. The southern states now
have 87,000 miles. Frcm southern
ports were exported last year goods to
a value only $100,000,000 less than the
value of all exports from the country
in 18S0. Chicago American.
Good Thought, Anyway.
Little John Brice loves to walk with,
his daddy through the woods. Last
Sunday these two had a famous walk
together, scaring up a rabbit or two,
and looking for squirrels.
Suddenly John stopped, in a listen
ing attitude. Then, ""I know what"
makes the wind. he announced.
"It's the trees whispering. he in
formed his father, who had been wait
ing for the result.
Perhaps he is right. Cleveland
Behind the Band.
"My wife is much interested in the
"The comet? The comet was here
"I know. She's putting old news
papers under the carpets throughout
the house and catching up with the
news as she puts 'cm down."
