EXPERT IN CHECK RAISING
Persistent Investigator Makes Dis
coveries la Search for
Stanley J. Morrow of Indianapolis Is per
haps ths most expert and accomplished
check raiser In jthe country. ' His work
however. Is dons only In honest experi
ments. For twenty-five years Mr. Morrow
has been working in an effort to perfect an
ink that cannot be removed from psper
and a paper from which Ink cannot be re
moved without leaving traces of its having
been there, and it Is while hs was thus
engaged that he raised hundreds of checks
aird' drafts atid acquired proficiency in his
work. ' . , '
Mr. Morrow says he has at last made
the discovery for which he has so long
sought, and that he now has a paper and
an Ink that, if used, will effectually pro
tect banks and others against the doings
of the cht-ck raiser. He has applied for
a patent on the process, and the applica
tion is now pending before ths patent de
partment at Washington.
In his laboratory at his horns Mr. Mor
row has a vast array of bottles of chem
icals lined up, all of which he has 'been
using In his efforts to discover a( non
eradlcable Ink. "I have made this mutter
a study for twenty-five years," he said,
"and I have here everything known to
chemistry for the removal of ink from
paper. I believe I know more1 about Inks
thati any .other man, and there Is no
chemist who Is better Informed on the
chemistry of Inks than I am. I have
been able to remove from paper every
Ink that has been put on the market, but
I am not able to remove the. Ink that I
have just perfected after all these, long
years of research. Therefore, I feel that
If I cannot remove It no living man can,
and that If this Ink is used In a check or
draft it affords absolute protection."
The array of bottles contained these
chemicals: Acetic acid, ovoltc acid, alco
hol, ammonia, perchlorlde of soda, pyro
phosphate of 'soda, hyposulphate of soda,
cream of tartar, chlorororm, ferro cyanide
of potassium, peroxide of hydrogen, chlor
ide of tin, aqua regia, nltrlo add, tartaric
acid, and combinations of these agents.
These, he said, are all the - substances
known to chemistry for the removal of
Inks. There are no others, he says. And
none of these will destroy the traces of the
ink- that he has just produced.
"If I had turned my. knowledge of how
to raise checks to dishonest purposes.
said Mr. Morrow, "1 have no doubt that I
could have been the most dangerous man
ths banks of the country would have had
to deal with, but my aim has been to
produce an Ink and a paper that would
prevent banks from being swindled In that
manner. During the years that I have
been at this work I have astonished many
bankers . with, the ease with which I was
able to change their checks that had been
written with what they were pleased to
call safety Ink and on what was assumed to
be safety paper.
"Evim right here In Indianapolis I have
demonstrated this. One bank In particular
pays $6 a quart for Ink that It uses in
writing checks and drafts. The cashier
felt secure and told me I could not take
the Ink from the paper. I did It just the
sams and showed him how It was done
and proved to him that his safety Ink was
of no value Irr the hands of one -who knew
what to do with It. Here Is tha check that
I raised for him as an example of what
could be done with his Ink," and he held
out a check that, though It had been raised,
bore not even the slightest evidence of the
change. Indianapolis News. .

INDUSTRIAL LIFE INSURANCE
Instructive ronclaelons of an lares
tla-atlas- Committee la
A special committee of the Massachu
setts legislature, appointed to Investigate
the subject of life Insurance, has sfter
six months' labor made -a report. One
featuro of this document, that relating
to "Industrial Insurance" so called, or
ths Insurance of ths lives of working
men and their, families for small sums,
the premiums being made payable. In
small weekly Installments. The recom
mendation of the committee Is that an
attempt shall be made to substitute for
this enormously costly method a system
under which the Issue of life policies for
small sums may be made part of the
business of savings banks. These Insti
tutions are already. It Is claimed, so
equipped and officered that they "could
manage an Insurance department At very
little additional cost, and with .enormous
advantage to the policy holders as com
pared with existing methods. In the
hands of such men as constitute the
boards 'of trustees of savings banks un
der the Massachusetts system serving
without pay and with the sole purpose
of protecting th Interests of depositors
and making their deposits yield the larg
est, possible returns consistent with
safe Investments the Interests of policy
holders, not of stock holders, office-holders
and agents, would be the first consider
ation. ' ,
How worklngmen are being fleeced un
der the present system Is shown by. some
statistics gathered by the committee. Th
sums paid by worklngmen In Massachu
setts In premiums for Industrial life in
surance, x during fifteen years, aggregate
$tl,294,887. The amount received back in
death benefits, endowments or surrender
values aggregates only $21,819,006. . .The
Insurance reserve arising from these pre
miums, still held by the companies, ' does
not exceed $9,838,000. It Is thus seen that.
In addition to Interest on Invested funds,
about half of the' worklngrren's payments
havs been absorbed In expenses and fat
dividends to stock holders. What these
last have been Is shown by the statement
that the annual dividends of one company
for fifteen years hve been 2S per cent
on the paid-in capital, and the company
has, besides, accumulated for Its stock
holder, a surplus o more than twenty
eight times the amount, of said capital.
Another company pays to Its stock holders
more than 219 per 'cent annually upon
Its paid-in capital. Surely, It Is argued,
some means should be gfound of checking
the absorption of such enormous sums In
expenses and profits, and of saving them
for the men who are trying to safeguard
the future of their families. And the
savings banks where the weekly pre
miums can be paid "over the counter"
Instead of to high salaried collectors who
go from house to house, where the closest
economies are ' habitually observed In
management, and where no dividends
wduld be paid out of Insurance money
except to the policy holders themselves
Is above all others adapted to supplying
a practicable substitute.
A pitiable feature of 'the presen( system
Is the number of lapsed policies. Few pol
icies last more than three years. ' In 1906
the number of lapses In the two eompa.
nles named aggregated $2,006,339. Another
company wrote ' during the-, year . 108, 4ii
policies. There were on its books at the
beginning- of the year 40.397. Yet at the
end of the . year only 63.497 survived. The
absolute. Irretrievable less to the work
Ingmen, the dlsheartenment that attended
all those lapses. Is something appalling.
The proposer to authorlxe savings banks
to take ud the suggested new line of
beneficent work Is one which may well
comrrlend Itself to the consideration of
other legislatures besides that of Massa
chusetts, In states whose savings banks
are run on the mutual plan, as In Massa,
chusetts, or in the case of mutual savings
banks In states where there are stock as
well as mutual savings banks, as In Mlrt
nesota. No peril to savings funds ts In
volved. Ttt tables of mortality on which
life Insurance is based make It as safe,
when In honest hands', as ths acceptance
of deposits and the guarantee Of Interest
thereon. There would apparently be noth
ing to lose and much to, (rain for the peo
ple in the development of the new idea.

HITCHED IN LION'S DEN
With the Jungle rendition of Mendels
sohn's ,rWeddlng March," and by the light
of a hundred candles burning In what may
be termed their wedding cage, Mr. Charles
Oarleton and Miss Katherlne Carrls were
married by Rev, Frank R. Hurtt, In a cage
with five Hons at the Zoo, North avenue
and -Oak street: Baltimore. The Hons did
not seem to mind It much.
The wedding was the result of a declara
tion on ths part of the management that
money would be given any couple who
would be married in a cage with the trained
ahlmals. It was the purpose of minting
attention to the Zoo and attracting a large
crowd at' advanced prices. There were
many skeptics in the audience, and many
left, yet doubting that.the ceremony was
a bona Ada one. But a man and a woman
entered the cage with a regularly ordained
local minister, known as the vice president
of the Local Preachers' association; five
lions were then admitted, placed on a
laddor. and ths usual marriage ceremony
of Uie Methodist Episcopal church was
read, after which the minister filled In ths
regulation certificate, which reads: "This
Is to, certify," sto. The press stent said
that (260 In. gold was given ths couple.
At any rate, Just before tha great and
only marriage act was to have appeared,
tha electrics, for soma unknown reason re
fused to work, and ths lights went out.
Candles were brought and placed between
the bars of ths circular cage and lighted.
Finally, after what proved . a vexatious
delay to the impatient women In the audi
ence. It was announced that ths ceremony
would take place by the light of ths candles
If ths audience so desired. It did.
The couple then entered the empty cage,
preceded by the minister and several train
ers. They were led to the front with their
backs to the animal run. The crowd was
exhorted to remain silent until after the
ceremony, and the five lions were brought
In and placed on the pyranld.
Miss Carrie was dressed In a lavender
gown of mode cloth and wore white gloves.
While her color seemed high in the candle
Hffht, she apparently had more courage
and was calmer than ths groom, who was
supported by one of ths employes af tha
Zoo, who stood back to back with him.

not get it without damaging his lady's
Just as ths ceremony was concluded one
of the lions jumped from his porch ana1
several squeamish , persons thought, ths
proper time had romei to f-sr and tremble.
Two women accordingly famted, and were
carried through the throng, but tre Henry
Hon was soon back on his perch, with
neither the groom nor bride aware that tha
animals were rooming about behind them.
Finally, when the ceremony was over, tha
Hons were bidden to arise and go from tha
festive cage to the Smaller ones In which
they find their night's slumber. As the
ceremony had caused them to sit longer
than Customary In one position, the Maudy
lions seemed bored by the- whole proceed
Inge, and behaved In anything but tha
recognised manner of guests at a wedding.
