1 supposo few people who have had
tl'rcct transact ions with banks are not
aware that errors sometimes happen.
The heads of firms rarely are acquaint
ed with such mistake. It is tho busi
ness of clerks who have the cheeks
cashed to see that the amounts paid
them are correct. Paying toilers, if the
-do err, are rather likely to pay too
'much than too little. Should they give
more money than the face of the "check
calls for, if the receiver of the money is
dishonest, then the payer does not al

ably made at once. 1 am rather in-
clined to repeat the assertion that m
such mistakes as are made in the rush
of business it is tho commoner error to
3ay too much. Sometimes a vciy tired
man, whoso brain has been too long on
tlie stretch, or who is ill or nervous,
mistakes the number of tho check for
tho amount, aud pays away some thou
jsands instead of hundreds. I have
.known this to happen in a New York
l)ank to a young friend of mine. He
.had sufficient good judgment not to oiu
barrass the paying toller by making
atuy noiso about it. Ho resumed his
place in the line, handed back his bank
Look, politely reflcsted the teller to
Hook at the check he had presented, tho
-amount he had received, and it was all
so quietly done that, he made for life a
fast friend ofa careful aud expert bank
teller. I have two or three times been

shop have very often mistakes made in

It be said that without waiting au in
stant restitution should be made?
I was clerk in a house when the in-
-cident I am' about telling happened.
We did a large business m tho city of
" , ana our cucck-dook was in con
stant demand. I made out the checks
-and kept the bank account, but did not
have the signature of tlie firm. Gener
ally for greater securitv, when tho
amounts were large, 1 drew out the
money myself. A great main of tho
transactions wc wero engaged in re
quired us to pay at once to the individ
ual the hard cash.
The paying-teller of onr bank in the
business season had all he could attend
to. The money to be paid for an agri
sultural product very much in demand
would on some days make the cash dis
bursements of this bank amount to
3750,000. I remembered that on one
4)ccasion, looking at the teller, he
eemed tired and depressed. Present
ing my check for something less than
$1,000 wanted by me in tivo and ten
dollar bills he overpaid me 50. He
ihad counted the m?ney over twice be
tre "passing it to me. I recounted the
money, found tlie error, aad, being
pressed for time, cosld nottcwrn the

handed to the creditor, and his account
balanced. The business entirely dropped
out of my mind.
Some thtee months afterward the firm
f received a letter from this man. which
was rather ambiguous of its kind. There
was an error, so he said, in his accDunt.
Would we look over it? At once I ex
amined the books, checked off even

credits of hi? business, and ended by
inspecting the filial check paid him".

i ieei as ii i were no longer tit for the
place." He seemed to me to have mo
ments of doubt and uncerta'nty. "I
still clingy to my place," he said. 'Of
course I nave no recollection of having
evor paid that check of 156." I said
to him "that I had hopes of getting
some of tho money back," but I did not
like to tell him how. But what I did
do was to go that evening to tho Presi
dent of the bank and state the case to
him. As it had been through him that
I owed my position in the firm he had
every confidence in me. My advice
was asked. I was forced to declare
that I thought the paying teller had
better be jiven another and lighter po
sition. JNcxtday, when I went to the
bank, the old teller had been apparent
ly relieved. He was casting up some
accounts in the ledger. When I spoke
to him across the railing he did not
seem to recognize me. Next day I
was shocked to learn, through the Pres
ident of the bank, that such positive
indications of mental trouble had been
shown by the teller that his friends had
thought it wiser to confine him in his
house. His accounts had been at once
rigorously oxamined, and were found to
be correct. It was perfectly true that
he had mortgaged his house, and had
paid tho amount received into tho bank.
He had concealed the loss for three
months or more from the bank, which
was a mistake on his part, but he had
been punctilious enough to even add
the interest for some ninety days.
Now, I felt absolutely certain that
the man to whom tho check had been
paid must be a rascal. If ho had of
fered restitution it came late very
much too late. My firm ave mo my
carto blanche to manage the matter as
I pleased. I could not have hfrn ar
rested. As ho lived in an isolated part
of the countrv. no efficient summons
buld reach him. If I had been aggres
iVe before probably not a cent would
lye been returned. I wrote now a
Si.wrp letter. I said that "aTerv lame
annt of money must have been paid
hinder and above the faco of tho last
checgiyen him, which was 456." 1
st&tcuxuat "I knew exactlv how mnnli
it was. 1 must confess outright that
this waihjx blulf. I was not sure that
the teller tad not madeother mistakes
besides thne. I wroto that "unless
tiic money k at once restored I would
blast Iiis4repVtoUon. If ho was inclined
to be honest,on at this late date, lot
him do alLhe cWld and send back the
whole amount.')! thought it wiser not
to lot him know vW mental condition of
the teller. I wauite certain that if
he knew tho teller m out of his mind
not one penny woulGtyM-eturn. I wrote
to him that he "mjfo be in a hurry

so he sauu I repucd with a vigor
letter. I confuted his arguments. "Ha
know' I said, "tho moment he had thty
bank-notes passed over to him that he
had been overpaid." A man might
find a piece of gold in tho dust of the
road, and could never tell who dropped
it there, lint there was no analogy be
tween the two cases. I cried "for im
mediate restoration, or there would bo
an exposure." His answer did not
come for ten davs. "I was mistaken,"
lie said. "He was not aware that ho
had been overpaid until ho got home.
Then he did not know of it Tor a week
afterward. It came out then in his ac
counts." I knew this to be a wicked
lie, but it contained at least tho written
acknowledgment that he had been over
paid. His letter concluded as follows:
"The rvAUc-r has worried me considerably,-
has taken up a great deal of my
time, and time for me is money Don't
you think there should bo compensation
allowed me, or, in other words, can't
we make a compromise?" (Oh, tho
blackguard!) "It such a thing could
be arranged I will come to the city aud
pay over to you the money. I am not
afraid of the bank. I consider that my
transactions have been with your firm."
The money overpaid by the teller had
been some $4,000. and he had probablv
counted out $4,560 instead of $456. 1
hated to do it, but I offered the scoun
drel his traveling expenses. His reply
came promptly. To leave his business
was worth a great deal more than that.
Then, again, ne thought of bringing his
wife on with htm and onjoying them
selves." The up and down of it was
that I most offer him a certain amount.

back promptly enough. He would
take the $500. " It wasn't very much.
The bank was ever so rich. Co-pora-tions
had no souls.' I consulted with
the bank President, who thought it was
better to close v.ith the man. Would
it be belie'ed that the wretch and his
wife came to apparently on a
pleasure trip? He had don; a Mmrp
and clever piece ol business. lie bad not
the Jeast compunctions of conscience.
He came to the oliice of an evening,
and I do not hesitate in saying that in
his hip pocket there was a revolver. He
handed me over something h;s5 than
-,000. asserting that the amount re
ceived less the traveling expenses and
the $.300 made up this balance. When
the money had been trans erred by me
to the safe I gave him a
piece ot rav mind. I did not
.parc mm. i neaped on mm every
insulting epithet I could think of. Then
he showed his temper, which was an
ugly one. "Now," said I (remember I
was twenty-six then, and hotter blood
ran through my veins than to-dav),
"you have wrecked an honest rain's
brains. That teller of the bank whose
money you took, has lost his reason.
He will, I am afraid, never i e a safe
man again. This is your work." That
seemed to cow him. " "Your repentance

The tenth t lilfcg wife of a Doctor
Hirschberg, who aW just been released
from tho LouisilVsl work house and is
again under arravt, sSiiarged with big
amy, tells a lonfcw. of the doctor's
adventures. She hiieYJaformation with
regard to live of his. cawJpanions. He
began by marrying .n, ..German nurse
girl in the Cincinnati . hospital. Then,
at Buffalo, he married an Irish girl; at
Cleveland ho married a 'Jewess; at

The queerest part of the infbrwia flon
relates, however, to the gullibility
the average woman, her utter failure a,
a judge of character, her apnapt
eagerness to marry, and her reading
to accept the advances of men of who)
she knows positively,' nothing. Very
likely the doctor selected his victims'
from the lower clashes of women: but
there should bo sharpness about them
to a certain extent, and indeed we be
lieve tho necossity which constantly
surrounds them is calculated to sharpen
rather than dull their wits. The quack
has many patients, but as a matrimo
nial adventurer ho should certainly
haveiew victims. Anybody, even the
mnct. irrnnrnnfr nnrl tho iltiltnct- rocsT
should know the quack as a humbug at
sight. It is not entirely surprising that
men and women should employ him as
a physician, for tho aches and pains
they wish to get rid of frcquentlj- make
them mentally wo.ik. and when the
regular physician has failed they have
nothing to do in their despair but pray
for miracles and patronize the quack;
but that a woman shou'd voluntarily
place her life and all that she has in
the hands of such a person and expect
happiness as a result passes the ordi
And the quack need not be hand

way. If ho bo twice tho age of the
woman and lit only, judging from his
looks and achievements, for association
with idiots, that makes no difference
at all. He has a glib tongue, and that
covers all the deficiencies. He talks te
the woman smoothly and at length,
using the largest words and aping the
largest erudition, and the less she
catches his meaning the more she
admires him. He wears glasses and
looks wise. His business has given
him an impudence that passes in hei

would justify him. Has the aV;
Democratic voter refused to use
he knew was foul calumny? Caucus
convention nave been bought in
and a seat in the Senate secured
means which ought to be indienantW,
condemned by every decent man. Have
the average Democrats, of Ohio or of
other States, shown any aversion for
the corruptionists? Is there any man
of common sense who serioaaly hopes
xor nonest government or aay kind of
reform from such a party?
The constituent dements of the Dem
ocratic party have not changed. No
thaumaturgic art has traajformed the
men who made the Democratic party
what it was in 1860, or 1864. or 1868,
or 1872, or 1876, or 1880. No miracle
has been wrought upon the men who I
perpetrated ail the shameful things that
the Democratic party has done within
the past twenty-fire years. What they
were, they are. The worst that they
ever nave done, lmamoos as it w, the
Democratic party would do gua with
absolute certainty, if it had the same
motive and occasion. Yet this is the
party to which some persons "look
with extreme solicitude."
Republicans do not -look in that di
rection for virtue, purity, reform or pat
riotism. They are, not so weak that
they can forget ia an hour the whdlc
record of a quarter of a eentsry. Ttfey
can not stoop so low as to depend upon
the Democratic party for principles 'or
candidates. A. 1'. THbunc. t
