New Vohk, Jan. -1. A long article in
iiillistusl in the The F.veiiing Sun, diwcrib
nt whut is hiisiMvtol to bj un extensive
"vsti'iu 01 cuiiiiU'i (citing which has been go
ii.H on for Mime timu in Mexico. It is said
certain i- i(:e across the buiiier have within
tlifl i'.ul two years roined ., 00,000 ot
iiK'i'ii-au silver dollars, nud alter shipping
1 In 111 across the bonier hnvedisHis-!of then)
iihaprotit to themselves of "JS cents on
en h dollar. During thu past low days
i iiiiiors to the effect huve botm afloat in
Wail sti. t, but have carefully lieon con
iiuetl to a few prominent bunkers and finan
ciers, who have taken extraordinary precau
tion to prevent the report from getting
l-yond their own little circle. Within the
past few months, or perhaps longer, it baa
I t-en notieed by bankers and other men w ho
handle fuir-sized sums of money in the por
tions of the United States contiguous to
Mexieo that there lias lieen a largo, an un
wontedly large, numtier of United States
silver dollars in circulation. This fact has
lvn noted by liuiikers in Texas, New Mexico
Tracing the. Coins to Mexico.
As toon as attention was called to it the
bankers naturally begun to speculate as to
tho causes of it, and to attempt to trace
back puynients inad.3 in silver dollars. Cer
tain it was that these coins could not have
lie. u shipped from the United States coinage
mints w ithout the knowledge of the local
banks in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona,
It was found that many of these coins could
traced to Mexicans living across the
liorder, who had given them in exchange for
commodities purchased in this country.
Then arose the question: Where did these
Mexicans get these United States silver dol
lars in such lurge quantities! Then begun a
regular investigation, which led to the dis
closure of many suspicious circumstances,
too small to be noticed by thomslves, but
forming significant links iu a chain of evi
dence pointing to one of the most remarkable
international crimes, if such it may be
termed, that the world has ever known.
A Good Thing; for the ''ilsuk."
This is the conclusion which the bankers
in Texas, New Mexico ami Arizona have
arrived at as a result of their investigations:
That a bund of Mexicans calling themselves
a "private bank," have been coining United
States silver dollars and uttering tbe same
to Mexicans, who gave them in return for
goods purchased on this side of the border.
Perhaps there is more than one of these In
stitutions; perhaps a half dosen. The gen
tlemen who are investigating this gigantic
plot, if such it proves to be, are of the opin
ion, deduced from minor details, that the
wholesale counterfeiting has been going on
for over two years, and that at least five
million counterfeit United States dollars
have thus been foisted upon the citizens of
this country by the keen-witteJ Mexicans.
' Shoving the Queer. "
How tbe dollars are uttered the investi
gators do not know. It is possible that the
'private banks,"or Mexican coiners of
United States money, utter the coins di
rectly through their own employes to the
people across the border in the United
States. In that way they would secure to
themselves tbe whole of tbe profit of about
"S cents on each coin. Or and this idea
fceenis tbe most plausible they utter tba
coins to Mexicans at a compromise value,
something between 72 cents and $1. Tba
Mexicans, who thus assume a risk in con
nection with passing the dollars, although it
is a small risk, gat their coin for loss than $1
in consequenee of that risk. The coin Is
exactly like tbe American coin, is just as
good as to tbe silver it contains, and is
almost imjtossible of detection.
An important Klemsnt
Of the success of Hood's Saraaparilla is
the fact that every purchaser receives a
fair equivalent for his money. The f a
tnilliar headline, "100 Doses One Dol
lar," stolen by imitators, is original with
and true only of Hood's Sarsaparilla.
1'hia can easily be proven by any one
who desires to test the matter. For
real economy, buy only Hood's Sarsapa
rilla. Sold by all druggists.
Who of us are wunout trouble be they
mall or large? The blessings of health
are best appreciated when we are sich

cold, or any throat or lung disease are
very troublesome; but all of these may be
quickly and permanently cured by Dr.
Bigelow'a Cure. Safe and pleasant fox

Of the first stain or speck beware
That on your teeth you may espy.
There is by far more danger there.

Use Sozodont without delay.
And thus arrest the first decay.

Probably no one thing has caused such
a general revival of trade at Hattz &
Bahnsen's drug store as their giving
away to their customers of so many free
trial bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery
for consumption . Their trade is simply
enormous in this very valuable article
from the fact that it aways cures and
never disappoints. Coughs, colds,
asthma, bronchitis, croup, and all throat
and lung diseases quickly cured. You
can test it before buying by getting a
trial bottle free, large size $1. Every
Tbe transition from long lingering
and painful sickness to robust health
marks an epoch in tbe life of the individ
ual. Such a remarkahlo event is treas
ured in memory and the agency whereby
tbe good health has been attained is
gratefully blessed. Hence it is that so
much is beard in praise of Electric Bit
ters. So many feel they owe their res
toration to health, to the use of the great
alterative and tonic. If you are troubled

stomach, of long or short standing you
