Counterfeiters and their Tricks.
Counterfeiting the currency of the
country is more extensively carried on
than is generAlly supposed. There Isa
large number of men, women and chil
dren engaged in the business. It has
almost become a national industry.
Two causes combine to make it so ex
tensive-one, the difficulty of capturing
counterfeiters, and the other, the small
number of men who are specially em
ployed in the detection of that class of
criminals. Every coin issued by the
government has been counterfeited and
every issue of legal tenders and almost
every issue of national bank notes has
been similarly dealt with. There are
more counterfeit coins made than coun
terfeit notes, and more counterfeits
of national banks are put on the mar
ket than of legal tenders. The readi
ness with which coins can be counter
feited and the small capital required to
enter into the business Is the cause of
the magnitude of such operations. Five
or six dollars is enough to set a man up
in the business of making spurious
coins. Coin counterfeiters direct their
attention chiefly to the qarter and
half dollar silver pieces, though they
by no means confine themselves there
to. The outfit for the work consists of
a few genuine coins, some antimony,
lead, type metal, pulverizell glass, a
small galvanic battery, a crude milling
machine and a moderate supply of
plaster of Paris. With the plaster of
Paris they make the moulds-very per
feet ones-of the coin, Sometimes in
one mould there will be cavities exactiy
the size of all the silver coins, with the
impiession of one side on one-half of
the mould and the other hearing the
fac simile of the reverse. The base
metal, antimony, lead, type metal and
pulverized glass-though tin is some
times used-Is melted and potred into
the mould. When sufliciently cooled
the metal is taken out. The coin has
a dingy, rough and a not at all deceiv
Ing look. It is smoothed with a knife
as far as possible, the rough edges be
ing cut off. It Is next run edgewise
through a small milling machine,
which gererally.conslsts of two small
cogged-wheel.. This makes the
notches around the edge. All that is
now left to give the coin a pretty do
cent appearance as genuine Is acoating
of silver. This the counterfeiter so
cures from genuine coins. The genu
Iie coin subjected to the action of the
battery, soon looses some of its silver.
Before it Is sulliciently dissolved to
totally deface it, the coin is taken out.
Enough genuine silver is in this way
procured from a single coin to plate a
dozen counterfelts, and the origin'l
looks after the operation, as if It was
but little worn, and can readily be
passed. This process Is called "sweat
ing." The work is very simple. A
good .hand at the business can make
his moulds of plaster of Paris and be
gin turning out spurious pieces all in
two or three hours. In counterfeit
gold coins the same method is pursued,
a genuine gold coin substlt,uted for the
silver one in the sweastinir, being the
only change. it is much more dificult
however, to get a deccentt looking gold
counterfeit titan it is one of silver;
therefore there is not mnuch dolttg in
that line of business. Th'ie use of pih
verized glass in t,he compiositioni or
counterfeit coilus ia for the purnose of'
giving thtem a "ring'' somnttiiing like
that possessed by the genuine 'mnetal.
They can always be detected, however
by their weight,.ntever bteittg as heavy
as the genuine.

'EPRmis.-Tholarge fruit of the Bell
pepper. so much used in fall for pick
ling is raised In considerable quanti
ties by the gardeners near large mar
kets, as a late crop after lettuce, early
greens or set onious. The popper seed
is sown in a hot bed the 1st of April,
and as it is a tropical plant, it needs a
good qeal of heat and moisture to start
the seeds. I have always had the best
success in bringing it up when the bed
was mulched with a piece of bagging
until the seed began to break ground.
''he plants are usually picked out in a
hot bed about April 20, 300 to 300 per
sash, and set in the 1eld about the 1st
of June, after the early crop of lettuce
&c., has been cleared and the land
plowed. The pepper requires a good
dent of manure; but if the land was
well dressed for the early crop, it will
need no more, otherwise they may be
manured in the drill. The plants are
set in rows two and a half feet apart, to
allow cultivation by horse, and the
plants one foot apart in the row. The
after culture consists only in frequent
stirring and hoeing through summer.
'T'he crop requires frequent attention at
gathering time to pick the pods before
they turn, the red ones being less sala
ble. Peppers are salted for winter sale
In precisely the same way as cucumber
and other pickles. The pickling fac
tories use large quantities of peppers in
fall at a cost of about $1 or $2 per barrel.
They are very productive and moder
ately prolltablo at these prices. Care
is needed when handling peppers not
to rub the eye or any other tender par'
of the body before washing the hands,
as the juice of the pepper is extremely
acrid and causes painful irritation when
applied to tender spots.
Mucz.-'l'here is an outcry against
muck, litu t now. Somebody has dis
covered that a great deal of this sub
stance has no value as a fertilizer, and
this Is a key note for a certain class of
writers, who, if they are not sensation
al are nothing, and now they are try
Ing to see who can say the worst things
about muck. The simple truth about
this whole matter is what every sensi
ble man has always known-that the
fertilizing qualities of muck diilrer ac
cording to its composition. But we
never saw any that was worthless
never saw any that would not pay for
handling where access to it was easy
and convenient. Remember that it is
not alone the actual fertilizing matter
in muck that gives it value, but its ab
sorbing qualites as well, by which It
can be made to save liquid wealth which
would otherwise waste. Of any two
or more substances used for this pur
pese, it is wise to choose that which has
both the power of absorbing and retain
ing the liquids and gases of the barn
yard and stables, and also has a for' Iliz
ing value in itself, and no other sub
stance can excel dry muck in these par
ticulars. Prof. .Johnson analyzed thir
ty-three samples of peat amid muck, and
found thie propo.t io'ns of ready a1mmon
in to vary from 58 to 1.011 per cent,
showing that one deposit may be seven
times richer than another. Mr. liar
ris, in commenting on this fact, in1 his
late work on manures, says that a bed
of muck containing three per cent of
allmmonia or nitrogen, is at mine of
wealth to any farmer, and that one ton
of such dry muck contains as much ni
trogen as seven tons of straw. lie
clinches the question with this strong
statement: "A ton of dry muck, on
an average, contains at least twice as
m.uch p)oteintinl nmmonia as the average
of our rlihest stable mianutrd." Thlis is

can plainly be seen. People seated be
fore the cafes read their papers by the
aid of lights on the opposite side of the
way, and yet the most delicate com
plexions and softest tints in fabrics do
not suffer in the white glare of the
lamps. Every stone in the road is
plainly visible, and the horses move
swiftly along as if confident of their
footing. Such Illumination Is the per
fection of street lighting. Neighbor
ing streets, though more brilliantly
lighted with gas than any American
street, appear dark and gloomy by con
trast. Besides the Avenue 1'Opera
there are a number of theatres, halls
and public buildings and shops, lighted
within or without, and in each case the
electric light has superseded gas or it is
used where gas would be too expensive.
The appearance of the lamps used in
Paris is peculiar. The entire globe ap
pears to be filled with light-no flame
or point being visible.. The color is in
tense white, occasionally changing to
blue or deep yellow for an instant. In
some few cases the light Is naked, or Is
placed in clear glass lamps. In what
ever manner it is used it is impossible
to look at the light for more than a few
seconds. This intensity, and the oc
casional flickering of the light, are
raised as objections to the electric light.
On the othor hand, why should any
one look at the lamps any more than at
the sun, and when not looking directly
at the light the flickering is hardly no
ticeable. In halls or shops the lamps
may be placed next the ceilings, or be
hind screens, so that only the reflected
light can be seen, and out-of-doors the
lamps may be placed overhead out of
the range of the eyes. The flickering
comes from a variety of causes, and it
is doubtful if it can ever be wholly
overcome. The points to secure are a
steady motive power (a turbine being
best), and good carbons in the lamps.
Another object ion has been founmd in
the deep shadows east by opaque ob
Jects when lighted by electricity.
Careful observations both here and in
Paris, in halls, shops and streets, failed
to show thmac this is a serious objection
where two or more lamps are used.
