SOUTHERN; STANDARD- MCMINNVILLE,. TENNESSEE. SATURDAY-JUNE 28, IS90..
If you havo mado up your mind to buy
Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be Induced to tako
any other. Hood's Sarsaparilla Is a peculiar
medicine, possessing, by virtue ot Its peculiar
combination, proportion, and preparation,
curative power superior to any other article.
A Boston lady who knew what she wanted,
and whose example Is worthy imitation, tells
Ler experience below:
In one storo where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to Induce mo buy
their own Instead of Hood's; he told me thclr'8
would last longer; that I might take it on ten
days' trial; that It I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But ho could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Ilood't Sarsaparilla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,
and bad for some time, like a person in con
sumption. Hood'a Sarsaparilla did mo so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and toylrlends frequently speak ot it" Mas.

St. Leo doubtless had no idoa when ho

Scribner's Magazine for July begins
the eighth volume of that periodical,
which promises to contain many feat
ures of remarkable interest. This
issue is especially well suited to the
season containing articles on Surf
bathing, the building of Birdsnests,
and on Suburban Houses all of them
elaborately illustrated. A prominent
physician of New Orleans tells of a
voyage which he took in a slaver,
many years ago; the editor of the
Kvening Post discussess the citizen's
rights to his own reputation, and
there is plenty of entertaining fiction
in the second instalment of the strik
ing anonymous serial, "Jerry," the
short story by the author of "Expia

Frederick's successful historical nov

during the year.

How Thin Ik Accomplished by the Strong
ly-ltullt Dundee Whalers.
No stronger vessels than those of the
Dundee whalers are built; they are from
four hundred to one thousand tons dis
placement, have powerful, well-secured
engines to resist the shock of ramming
or stoppage of the propelor by ice, and
are built with an eye .to the easy and
rapid replacement of rudder, propcler
and propclcr-shaft if damaged, these
parts being carried in duplicate. Above
all other considerations, they possess
strength for ramming as well as resist
ance to lateral pressure when nipped.
Another very important leature is
that the bow shall have considerable
inclination, which permits the vessel,
when ramming very heavy ice, to lift
slightly and slido on it, thus easing the
6hock and assisting the cutting action
of tho bow with tho downward crush
ing weight of the ship. In thi9 way it
is possible for these steamers at full
speed to ram ice over twenty feet thick,
and receive no immediate incapacitat
If the ice is not too heavy, the shear
like rise and fall of the bow is repeat
ed several times as tho vessel steams
powerfully ahead until her headway is
checked. The difficulty then is to ex
tract the ship from the dock she has
cut by her advance; the floes press on
her sides, cakes of ice and slush fill
her wake, and there is nothing but the
ice-hampered propeler with which to
overcome her inertia and draw back
out of the nip. Frequently this is in
sufficient, and the ship may be crushed.
Ensign A. A. Ackerman, in Fopular
The Care of the Piano.
Incident in the Career of a Secret
Among the many incidents of my
fifteen years' experience in hunting
down counterfeiters of United Statos
currency, the rarest find was mado in
a small town in Tennessee several
years ago. In a country 6tore ono
day a man showed rae a $10 bill a
note on tho Third National Bank of
Nashville, Tenn. and remarked that
that was a very odd piece of paper
currency. I looked at it and saw
nothing wrong about it; but, on turn
ing tho bill over, I found that the de
nomination was $20 on that side. I
then gave the bill the most careful
scrutiny, for I had found a rarity, Bure
enough, but. much to my surprise, I
learned that it was a genuine bill and
not a counterfeit, as the man supposed.
The fine lines in the lathe work in the
engraving showed that it was a genu
ine bill. After some reflection, I
solved tho apparent mystery of how
the bill happened to have the denomi
nation of $10 on one Bide and $20 on the
other, very satisfactorily to my own
mind. The riddle was explained in
this manner. One side of the bill had
been printed by the American Bank
Note Company and then it had been
sent to Washington City, where the
other side was printed by the Govern
ment The custom of the Government
has always been to have the paper
money printed in sheats composed of
four bills, three of one denomination
and ono of the next higher, and ar
ranged one below the other. Thus in
the $10 notes, a sheot contains three
$10 bills and a $20 bill at the bottom.
Tho Tennessee bank note had been one
of a sheet containing three $10 bills
and one $20 bill, and they had llecn
printed all right at tho establishment
of the American Bank Noto Company.
But the particular sheet, in this in
stance, had by some accident been
turned upside down in running off the
other side at Washington, placing tho
$10 impression at tho top of the
sheet over tho $20 end of the plate,
making a bill with a denomi
nation of $10 on one sido
and $20 on the other. Of course, tho
other end of tho plate struck off a bill
with $20 on one sido and a $10
denomination on the other, but the
sides reversed from the first-named
bill. Only one of the bills has been
found, and that is the one found by me.
The two $10 bills in the middle of tho
sheet, of course, were not changed. I
gave the old 'lennesseean $20 for the
bill. It was worn from much usage,
and had evidently passed sometimes
for $20 and at other times for $10, but
nobody had discovered it before. A
few days later I was in Nashville.
lenn., and concluded I would have
some fun with the bill. I stepped into
the Third National Bank, on which the
note was issued, and shoved tho bill.
with tho $10 side up, through tho
grating and asked for change in sil
ver. The cashier threw tho bill down
quickly and gave me tho proper
change for $10. I said: "See here,
you haven t given mo tno proper
change; I gave you a $20 bill." The
cashier replied: "Oh. wo are too old
in the business in this bank for any
body to work us." He did not know
that I was an officer, and took
mo for a crook, presumably, who was
trying to "work" him. "Give mo that
bill and I'll show you," I Niii!. Ho
gave me the same bill, and I handed it
back to him with tho $2J side up. Hut
when he turned it over he s;iw that it
had two denominations. The bank
president and a!l tho clerks gathered
about to s-o the two-faced bill. I then
divulged my identity as a United States
officer and told tho bank president that
I thought this was a case that would
bear investigation, as I believed that
the banK hau been issuing spurious
bills with $20 designated on one side
and $10 on the other, and had been
passing them over tho counter on tho
$20 side, but would only take them in
on the $10 6ide, thus making a big
profit annually. The bank president
protested his innocence, but as ho was
at a loss to explain the bill, he was
nonplused. After I had worried them
for some time by pretending to believe
that something crooked had been going
on, I mado myself known, and there
was a general explanation. St. Louis
