The recent arrest of Broekaway,
one of tho oldest and most experi
enced counterfeiters in tho country,
has called public attention afresh to
that branch of the government ner
rice which is organized for the pur
pose of protecting Uncle Sam's mon
ey. Thoso who have visited the of
fice of the secret service in the Treas
ury building iu Washington will no
doubt recall the features of Brorka
way, who occupies a pluco of honor
in the gallery, which has been aptly
termed tho "rogue's gallery." Here
may be found the faces of men who
for years past have attempted to
make and pass counterfeit bills and
pieces of money.
. It is one of tho most interesting
places in the Nation's Capital, and it
is perhaps due to tho fact that, as
the bulk of tho community lead hon
est and industrious live, and ca
reers of thoso who pursue the oppo
site courso or of more or lens inter
et. At any rate, whatever the mo
tive, it is well known that every
Uing tbatreluto-t to crime and crimi
nals possesses a fascinating inter
est for tho average man and woman.
TO gratify this tendency or weak
ness of human nature, as well as to
fujrnisli a practical object Iohhou of
what Uncle Sam has done iu tl.o
past and what ho is likely to do in
the future if he finds anybody at
tempting to usurp his right to coin
money, there is always ou exhibition
a collection of pictures of noted
counterfeiters, and also of the tools
which they use.
, Whenever an officer of the govern
ment Seizes a counterfeiter, he con
fiscates all the spurious money which
he is able to find and the best speci
mens of the skill of thoso men are
f ruined aud hung up for the inspec
tion of visitors. The collection
shows some crude work, as well as
some exceedingly skillfull work. It
is very evident, however, even to tho
casual visitor who inspects thin ex
hibit of the skillful dishonesty of the
country, that Uncle Sam has intro
duced so many improvements iu tho
manufacture of this paper money,
that it is practically impossible to
counterfeit it with any success.
Even Broekaway, who is admitted
to bo the cleverest engraver that ev
er eugagod in the business, was un
able to reproduce tho paper itself,
and the result was that the notes he
turned out were rather easy to de
tect. In the production of silver
coins, however, tho counterfeiters
have more opportunity, but still
such a ragid watch is maintained
that it is rather difficult to pass the
coins after they ure made.
Iu the Treasury exhibit are found
the molds aud plates and dies which
have been used by thoso who rob
Uncle Sam. It is not supposed thut
the display of theso tools, and the
product of perverted talents, has
the bad effect of suggesting tho idea
of going into the business. Tho out
look is not a very encouraging one,
as the records show that all of those
who have adopted this calling, and
who have caruod their place iu this
National Rogue's Gallery, have paid
the penalty by terms of varying
lengths in the poniteutiary. What
ever fascination tho business might
have, it is not likely to be increased
by looking over this collection which
represents tho wrong-doing of men
and women who aro made to suffer
the penalties ot their crimes.
Somo of tho pictures of tho men
and women who have boon arrestod
for counterfeiting show that they
aro not of tho ordinary criminal
type, but are evidoutly plain people
living in tho country, who have per
haps ignorautly yieldod to tompta
tion and adopted their business as
an easy way of making money. It
is certainly not a&t hard as digging
potatoes or hoeing corn, that is, in
the amount of physical effort put
forth, and thon it is usually repre
sented that the retarns are very
large and the risks small.
Experience generally proves that
both of these latter representations
are false, but then it is too late to be
of much use to a mm who has ruin
ed his life and is suffering tho pen
alty of tho law. However, thoro are
always thoso who think they will bo
exceptions to the general rule, aud
this is one reason why tho ranks of
counterfeiters aro kept recruited
and that tho secret service of the
Treasury Department continues in
Odd Fellows at a Banquet.
On Friday evening last a number
of Odd Fellows from the Now Berlin
Lodge domiciled themselves at the
Central Hotel for a chicken and
wafllo supper. Mr. Smith, ihe pro
prietor of thecential hotel is a mem
ber of this lodge. The Middleburgh
orchestra was engaged for the oc
casion. The visitors present were
as follows : S. E. Gross, A. M. Won
der, Leonard Buyer, Chas. Miller,
Chas. Spitlor, J. D. Spitlor, S. M.
Kauffman, Dr. D. R. Rothrock aud
wife, J. W. Hoch and wifo. Reno
Crossgrovo and F. King.
Mrs. Smith, in her usual prolific
way, prepared a feast fit for a king.
At a late hour the guests started for
homo being highly elated over tho
hospitablo entertaiuimwit and the
strains of choice music.
Farmers' Alliance Picnic.
Tho Farmers' Alliance of Snyder
county held thoir annual picnic on
Saturday in Bower's grove. The
agriculturists of our fortilo district
turned out en masse to hoar tho

An Editor Misinformed.
The Bun bury Evening Item of
Tuesday gets matters pretty well
mixed concerning Dr. Amig's wed
ding. The Item ntates that the
Editor of this paper was married.
We informed tho Editor of the Item
that Dr. Atnig and Miss Marks were
married, but there'were others in to
see the Itcm't reporter who insisted
that it was tho Editor of tho Post
who was married. Evidently the
reporter preferred to beliovo others.
We can assure the lttm that we
were not married and our trip to Ni
