LIFK OF SMALL HILLS.
Much Shorter Tliitu is Uiuicrnlly
The life of a paper note,, and
especially those of small denomina
tions, as a $1, $2 or $5 bill, has
always been much shorter than the
average person would imagine. Of
late, however, owing to the great
increase of properity throughout
the country, its existence has been
curtailed until at the beginning of
the present year it has been esti
mated that the ordinary outstand
ing note now lives but a little more
than two years.
The main reason for this lies in
the fact that as business becomes
more active there is a greater
demand for small bills for ready
use, and these being handled often
er and more carelessly than the
larger ones, they wear out much
sooner. This tendency to have the
average value constantly reduced
has made a great increase in the
issue of new money, amounting to
over $23,000,000 in bank notes and
Government paper currency, and a
proportionate increase 'in destruc
tion and redemption.
All of this has its effect on every
department through which the note
passes, from the time of the begin
ning of its existence in the paper
mills of Massachusetts, whence it is
sent to the Bureau of Engraving,
to the treasury, and to the count
less people who use it until it again
reaches the Treasury, where it is
redeemed and ground into pulp.
In the paper mills this increase
in the demand for notes necessitates
more employes and more machinery.
In the Bureau of Engraving, where
the money is engraved, printed and
numbered before being taken to the
Treasury, the results are still more
manifest. During the past year
450 more clerks have been added,
thus bringing the number up to
2851, which, when set up against
the 470 employes which composed
the entire working staff of the bur
eau twenty-five years ago, is a force
ful reminder of the rapid growth
and prosperity of this country. The
great amount of work done by the
bureau since 1900 has required the
organization of a night force, be
sides the extension at times of the
hours of labor of the entire print
ing force. Washington Post.
Surprised by Society Women.
New York, June 6. A special
to the Sun from Newport says:
Three young society women, Miss
Scheneck, Miss. Roche and Miss
Rives, who several days ago started
the fad of wearing their hair down
their backs in schoolgirl fashion,
have introduced another innovation,
following the footsteps of many of
the society men who for some years
have gone hatless while in New
port. Today Miss Scheneck ap
peared about town not only with
her hair in braids down her back,
but hatless, causing no end of com
ment along the streets.
As a rule the society women of
Newport go heavily veiled to pro
tect their complexions, and al
though it is thought likely many
will follow the fashion set by the
three young women in headdress,
it is not probable the hatless idea
will become popular. These three
young women are leaders in the
younger set, and generally every
thing introduced by them is taken
up by their followers.
Mormons Must (Jult Uormaiiy.
Berlin, June 6. Hugh J. Can
non, superintendent of the Mormon
missions in Germany, his wife, his
secretary and assistant secretary
were ordered by tin police today to
leave Prussian territory within
three weeks. Similar orders are
about to be served by the local
authorities on eighty-six other mis
sionaries in Prussia, under the de
cision of the Government to expel
them all. , It is quite unusual to
serve the wives of Mormon mis
sionaries with a separate notice.
Mrs. Cannon has only been here a
No explanation was given for
the action taken, except that the
presence of the Mormons was un
desired. Mr. Cannon will move
