sequence been going into rapid retire
ment The rapid easing oi the money
market has not been affected by the
notice of withdrawal of $10,000,000 of
government deposits from New York
banks, partly because of the large cur.
rent deficit in the government rev
enues, but also by reason of the ac
cumulation of funds .being more rapid
than the demand to take them up.
This is made manifest by the heavy
tide of bank notes out of the circula
tion of the country, reflected in the
current redemption of these issues at
the United States treasury, and by
the growing movement on the part of
the banks to retire them by means of
deposit of lawful money with the
United States treasury. The inferences
are plain that the heavy imports of
$100,000,000 of foreign gold and the
rapid issue of over fw.OOO.OOO national
bank notes which followed the runs
on the banks last fall, to say nothing
of the various emergency issues of

AN ADVERTISING TRICK
Real Estate "Agents" Go After
Men with Land -for Sale and
Reap Rich Harvest
A smooth scheme for separating
farmers from their money has been
worked with' much success in South
uuKuia.. ad. ouy graiter calls on a
farmer and makes a bid for bis land.
The figures are absurdly low at first,
but by degrees are raised as hteh as
$60 an acre, and the farmer consents.
Then the visitor explains that he is
only an agent, but that he can sell the
land at the price named if the owner
will agree to pay for advertising at
the rate of fifty cents an acre. The
"agent" promises orally that the ad
vertising money will not be payable
until the land is sold, but this stipula
tion is not contained in a contract
that the farmer signs.
In a few days he receives a copy of
an ad and not over-courteous demand
for money. It is said that- twenty-
two agriculturists were caught with
this bait in Brown County and that
one of them gave up $329. Others de
clare hotly that they will not pay but
they will make a fight in the courts.
Collecting in New Hampshire.
A New Hampshire man tells of a

of that state, who until recently had
never been observed to take aa inter

ever, he became a regular attendant
at divine service, greatly to the
astonishment of his fellow towns
men. "What do you think of the case of
old Ketch um?" said one of the busi
ness men of the place to a friend. "Is
it true that he has got religion?"
"Well, hardly," replied the other.
"The fact is, it's entirely a matter of
business with him. I am in a posi
tion to know that about a year ago he
loaned the pastor $50. which the lat
ter was unable to pay. So there re
mained nothing for Ketchum but to
