FORTUNE IN RARE COINS
Fat Picking for Watchful Cashiers In
Stores, Bartenders and Street
Cashiers In stores and restaurants,
ticket agents at theaters and railroad
stations, bartenders and conductors
on cars are in a fair position to be
come collectors of rare coins, as they
handle every kind of money piece
from foreign coins to oM-time money
of the United States. A saloonkeeper
In Harlem declares he has made a
small fortune during the last few
years by saving the rare coins that,
are taken over the bar.
"I have a tin box filled with rare
United States pieces," he related,
"and I could have a collection of for
eign, coins If I so desired. You would
be surprised to see how anxious some
men are to get a drink at the expense
of spending a rare old coin for its
face value. Silver and paper currency
that pay a good premium are given to
my bartenders for face value. I have
often noticed a reluctance on the part
of the holder before parting with the
coin. He will give a last look at the
money and then place it on the bar
for the refreshing beverage. One man
told me that a coin had been in the
tho family for nearly a century. He
wanted only one drink and was afraid
I would not take the coin because of
tts age. I gave him the drink and
change for the piece at its face value,
and he was overjoyed."

Little Dorothy Explains Break in De
votional Exercises for Her
Family of Dolls.
Little Dorothy is the daughter of a
minister. She has a family of fifteen
dolls, one of them being a parson.
Dorothy is devoted to her treasures.
For a long time sh? held religious
service for them, but suddenly the
services were discontinued, only to be
as unexpectedly resumed.
"Why did you stop the services,
Dorothy?" she was asked.
"Oh, the dolls decided not to have
them any more."
"But why were they started again?"
"They all voted that way, that is-"
Dorothy hesitated, but she added,
regretfully, "All except the clown and
the Teddy bear."
They were regarded as Incorrigible
by the minister's small daughter. Next
day at the services they were seated
immediately in front of the doll
preacher, the other dolls occupying
less prominent places.
"Why are the clown and the Teddy
bear sitting so far forward?" in
quired Dorothy's father.
"Oh," was the reply, "I thought they
most needed to hear the sermon."
Chauncey M. Depew frequently dep
recates the comparisons that are
drawn between American and Euro
"These compariscis are unfair to
us," he once said at a banquet In New
York. "When I'm told how very safe
the European railway is I think of the
Nola Chucky line.
"The president of the Nola Chucky
line once waited on me to request an
exchange of courtesies. I interrogated
him, and he said proudly:
" 'On our line, sir, not only has a
collision never occurred, but on our
line a collision would be Impossible.'
" 'Impossible?' said I. 'Oh, come, I
know that the latest automatic safety
devices are excellent things, but im
possible is a large word.'
" 'lt's literally true with us, sir,' he
" 'How cnn it be?' said I.
" 'Why,' said he, 'we own only one
One of the smallest of the German
principalities ls undertaking a very
big experiment in financial legislation.
The diet of the elder of the two prin
cipalities of Reuss, which lie in cen
tral Germany, to the southeast of the
Thuringlan states, carried recently a
resolution in favor of increasing tho
state Income tax by 5 per cent, of the
tax on incomes between ?150 and
?300, and by \0 per cent, of the tax
on Incomes exceeding ?300 a year in
the case of unmarried persons of eith
er sex who have reached their thir
tieth year. The diet consists of twelve
members, and the resolution was car
ried by seven votes against five. The
super-taxation of bachelors has often
been proposed in other German states,
and was jocularly refer? ed to as a pos
sible form of imperial taxation by thc
There are those who are dreadfully
intolerant of Ignorance about New

lady, obviously from many hundred
miles away, boarded a Broadway car
at Times square.
"Does this car go to Third avenue?"
A look composed of equal parts qt
pity, rage and disgust spread over
the conductor's face.
"Will you please tell me, lady, how

Two Implements Farmers
When you buy an implement you want the best, especially when you
can get the best on the market at a very reasonable price.
We want to call your, especial attention to Deere's
Universal Disc Harrows,
They are not only strong, being (made of^the best material, but they
are Adjustable and Reversible. Call and let us explain to you the ad
vantages that the Deere harrows have over Jother harrows on the market.
Can furnish any disc.
The Deere Stalk Cutter.
is an implement that is being appreciated and valued more highly by
farmers each succeeding yeer. One great advantage this cutter offers is
the elimination of the jolting and jarring to both driver and team. Heavy
springs are so attached and adjusted as to break the force of the constant
jolting of the blades. The Deere stalk cutters have stell frames and can
stand the roughest.
We want to keep in close touch with the farmers and will always take
great pleasure in explaining every detail of the implements we sell.
It should be the chief aim of the progressive farmer to equip his farm
with implements ard machinery that will minimize labor ?nd at the sams
time do the work in the best possible manner. We stand ready to co
operate with them in accomplishing this purpose. Call to sec us when
you come to Edgefield.
