Prove- satisfactory. Tho result of the
auoptlon of tho new secret process will
bo to revolutionize a portion of the work
connected with the prlnUng of the paper
nloncy of tho United States.
Under tho new process it will take
Just sixty days less time to manufac

method. The chemical solution not onlv
renders the paper soft and velvety, but
It also makes it non-shrinknble. Bv ap
plying It to a Japanese napkin thnt ar

Under the- present process of printing
paper money the paper has to be thor
oughly soaked ln water. Whilo It is In
this soaked condition one side of tho

a high temperature for thirty days, the
tlmo necessary for the Ink to drv. The
sheet Is again soaked as In tho first in

Long Drying Process.
Tho thirty-day drying process then hns
to be repeated. In cases whero a third
Impression on the bill Is npcejsnry, which
Is required when tho printing is done ln
two color?, tho wetting and drying pro
cess has to be repeated for a third time,
and another month Is thus consumed in
Its production. Besides tho delay of this
process, tho wotting and drying rot tho
fiber of tho paper and, althojgh H is
"starched" to give it tho crisp appear

bill becomes limp and worn.

In printing bills on paper that has been
treated by the now process no wetting la
necessary. Tho Ink loses none of Its luster
when applied to tho paper, as under the
old process, and Is thoroughly dry within
