American experts, who cannot see

and engraving. Many Italian bank-j
notes are easy to counterfeit A few i
years ago the Bank of Spain was oblig

notes were imitated so successfully
that the counterfeits were without
question accepted by the bank itself. A

The Bank of Greece employs the
American method, having suffered a
sad experience with notes of German,
Austrian and English make.
The American experts do not hold to
the popular notion abroad that the
notes of the Bank of England cannot
be counterfeited. They contend thatl
these famous notes can be imitated]
readily enough, for little attempt is
made to protect them beyond the use
of a watermarked paper.
One practical safeguard of great effectiveness
is the custom of the Bank
of England of canceling every note
that is returned to the bank and issuing
another in its place. This and the
practice of keeping a record of the
numbers of all banknotes used in ev

a keen sense of responflbility, which
adds to security.?Philadelphia Record.

Johnny Roche's Tower.
I Standing on the banks of the river
Awberg, between Mallow and Fermoy,
County Cork. Ireland, is a remarkable
edifice known as "Johnny Roche's
Tower." The whole tower was built
by the labor of one man, who subsequently
resided in it. This individual,
who received no education whatever,
also erected a mill, constructing the
water wheel after a special design of
his own. Long before the introduction
of the bicycle he went about the country
in a wheeled vehicle of his own
construction propelled by foot power.
His last feat was to build his tomb in
I the middle of the river bed. John
i Roche died, but was not interred in the
strange burying place which be selected
for himself, his less original relatives
