Another Swindle. Some people will
never learn what a great risk they are
running in signing papers for strangers,
especially without reading it over or
carefully examining it. The following,
we clip from the Waynesboro Gazette, is
given to our reader as about the ninety
ninth warning, but still we would not
be surprised to hear of the same swindle
being perpetrated upon some of our citi
zens before our next issue : " A barefac
ed swindle was perpetrated on Mr. Wm.
Wiles, near this place, a short time ago.
We have been unable to get the full par
ticulars, but from what we have heard
the following are about the facts in the
case. Several weeks ago a couple of men
stopped at Mr. Wiles' and asked him to
take the agency for a patent Wind En
gine and asked the privilege of erecting
one on his premises as a sample. Mr. W.
agreed to take the agency and had the
Engine put up with the understanding
that it was only as a specimen of the
article and be would not be required to
pay for it. In the course of the business
constituting him agent It was necessary,
they told him, to sign several papers,
which were articles of agreement. This
he did and in a short time the Engine
came on and was put up. Several weeks
afterward Mr. W. received notice from
the Hagerstown bank, we think,, that
they held a note against him for a sum
of money which he would oblige them
by lifting, how much we are unable to
state. It now turns out that what Mr.
Wiles thought were articles of agreement
that he was signing were notes. What
the result will be we must patiently
wait to see.
