HAS DIAMONDS FOR INVESTORS
Money put into diamonds is not spent
but invested your assets are increased.
A five per cent bond you would consider
a good purchase even at a premium, but
diamonds will pay double that. We are
getting twice what we sold lor a few years
ago and the "market is active and strong."
As a matter of fact there are a very few
certain things in this world, but diamonds
are among the select few.
Come in and discuss the matter.

miiHt iiifnllililf Wtirl.i-rxi.
One or the must trying prsiti:.iis ! s
our business, said a bank oiiicial tu a
writer in London Tit-Hits, is that of
signature expert the man who has t:
examine daily every draft that eume:
ill through the clearing hoii:e ami
vouch for it" genuineness. Our bank,
one of the largest in the city, employs
six clerks who do nothing nil day long
but examine eln-cks. and when I tell
you that it is n. uncommon thing fur
10,000 drafts to come In during a sin
gle day you will understand that the
job Is not altogether the sinecure, it Is
popularly supposed to be.
These clerks have not only to scruti
nize the signatures of both drawer and
drawee, but also examine the tilling
In," the latter being Just as important,
perhaps more so from a monetary
point of view, as the signatures. As a
matter of fact, the commonest forgery
with which we have to deal is the
"raising" of checks, and a forger of
this nature generally chooses a check
bearing a genuine signature, but hav
ing very little "filling in."
For instance, he knows that It would
not be difficult to raise a cheek from
fS to 3,000, for all he has to do is to
erase the word "pounds." Insert the
word "thousand" and then add the
erased word again. I have seen plenty
of this kind of work during the time
I have been examining cheeks.
One of the most Impudent pieces of I
forgery, however, thnt I ever came
across was a check raised from ." to
.ron. The forger had evidently relied
on colossal Impudence carrying him '
through, for he had simply added a
couple of ciphers and then lietween the
words "live" and "pounds" had plaeed
an omission mark nnd written the
word "hundred" above, adding the in
itials of the drawer of the check Just
to give the thing a look of careless gen
uineness. It was so astounding a piece of cool
audacity that we had bets on tli
check, two of my assistants declaring
it to be O. K., while the other three
nnd myself declared It to be a forgery.
Further inquiries, of course, proved
that tlie opinion of the majority was.
the correct one.
It is marvelous what a vast number
of signatures some clerks will carry in
their mind's eye. as it were.-atiiUhus
be able to pass checks by the thousand
without once having to refer to the slg
nature books. We had a clerk here a
few vears ago who was little less than
a wonder. He knew perfectly the slg-!
natures of at le.;st .",X0 customers and j
could detect the alteration of a stroke
in any one of them in an instant.
More remarkable still was the fact
that he recognized with equal facility
the signatures of those customers
whixo checks only came in once or
twice a year. But he made an art of
his work, and I afterward discovered
that most of his evenings were spent in
studying and learning the signatures of
the customers, for he was a wonderful
hand at copying writing, and when
ever a' new signature would come In,
one with which he was not acquainted,
he would at once facsimile It In his
pockcthook and by the next morning
would be able to recognize it among
Signature clerks are not, as a rule,
supposed to make cophs of customers'
autographs, but many of them do. and
some men are clever enough at the
work to even deceive themselves.
Of course, it is understood that when
the signature clerks are not examining
checks they are studying the autograph
liooks in order to familiarize them
selves with the caligraphy of every
customer. Each cheek, you must un
derstand, passes through the hands of
each clerk in turn, so that if one should
pass n forgery or a "raised" draft It is
very unlikely that the entire stuff
would do so. All these checks, of
course, come through the clearing
house, and If we should pass a forged
draft and not find out our mistake be
fore 3 o'clock in the afternoon our
bank would be held responsible. One
of the commonest, dodges adopted by
the modern check forger is to get a
customer of some siimll country bank
to Introduce him to that institution as
a likely depositor. On the recommen
dation of the friend (who is probably
quite unaware that the acquaintance
he made some few months ago is a
"wrong Mm") there is no difficulty ia
accepting their new client's check for
11.000, and the following day when the
same customer calls and withdraws
'00 to ."00, as the case may be. he Is
politely handi-d the cash, and then, of
course, loses no time in skipping the
town. After the bogus customer's
check has passed through the clearing
houe it Is returned to the bank or.
which it lias been drawn, and the fraud
Is at once discovercl.
Another part of a signature clerk's
duties is to see that no checks are post
dated, a", of ii:rse. n drafts must be
paid mr'I they fall due. On occasions
a careless man will postdate a check,
but as a rule the mistake is purposely
made. This spotting of postdati-d
checks, however, is the easiest part of
a signature clerk's work, nnd It Is very
seldom that n check so dated escapes
him. Then, again, we are often noti
fied thiit payment on certain cheeks has
been stopped, and the clerks have to be
on the lookout for these, and It must
be a very careless staff Indeed that lets
them slip by. We are held responsible
for all checks passed after we have re
ceived notice to stop payment
But it Li very seldom now, owing to
the cleverness cf the experts, that any
ta&rcA checks "ra4Fdt .afce&A. ost-
datt-d checks r.r stopped: checks pass
tiie vigilant eyes of our staff without
being detected, but when . :o does
v. ell. although the signature ch-iks are
n.t held nuiu hinh icsm-Ode for the
loss, it means a b. 1 i .:rk a a dust them
in tin' future, and ihoy. feel its effects
next time promotions or "rises" are
being handed out.
Altogether, though the work is inter
acting and even fascinating in a way.
the responsibilities are so great that
the effect on the nerves is often very
trying at times. One thing we, are par
ticular about, nnd that is tor take no
chances. If we have the slightest doubt
nlHtiit the genuineness of a check we
nt once communicate, either by tele
graph, special messenger or telephone,
with the supposed drawer of the check
and in this way turn doubt into cer
tainty. During the last three years not
a single wrong check has passed our
vigilant optics, and, though I say it.
