whiskey over from Roanoke and stored
it where ho could send runners after it.
It was done to show the 'folly of local

to deceive. It was ovordono. so to
speak. But the grand jury looked into
it all the same, all to no purpose, how
over, for Waller did not know any of

pronounced It a local disease, and pro?
scribed local remedies, and by constantly
failing to cure with local treatment,
pronounced it incurable. Science has
proven catarrh to bo a constitutional

QUEER FINANCIAL METHODS.
How the Dally Routine of Ihinhlni; Is Con?
ducted in Marseilles.
We had to make our way through a
crowd occupying a large; room or small
hall in which business was conducted.
This hall was filled with people, some
of whom were there to look after their
own or other people's affairs, aud others
of whom had obviously dropped in for a
casual chat. Almost all were smoking
cigarettes, an amusement which they
shored with a good many of tho hank
clerks. When wo had got through this
crowd, my friend and host presented his
check at n guichet. Tho man behind tho
gnichet gave him a metal disk stamped
with a number. Armed with this, ray
friend made his way to another gnichet,
behind which stood not u clerk, but an
ordinary porter wearing tho livery of
tho bank. This porter had his hands
full of similar metal disks. After a
weary waiting he called out tho number
?say, 1302?on my friend's disk.
Then my friend advanced, identifying
his check by another number obtained
at the first gnichet, and then received
his money, not in the currency or form
which be wished for, but in such shape
as th:? porter bad at hand to dispense
from the authorities above him. Then,
soiite of the mites being only locally ne?
gotiable, my friend had to go to n third
guichet to soo if they could be changed
into negotiable notes. On occasions this
is impossible, and the unfortunate
hohler of the check has either to leavo
part of the money bo has come for until
a favorable opportunity or accept what
he can get on the chance of paying it
away or getting it changed or both with
some of his tradespeople. Beyond this
there is no clearing house system. Each
bank makes a charge for cashing a check
on another bank, and these charges
practically swallow up the tiny amount
of interest nominally allowed on a con?
stant balance. And this is how the daily
routine of banking is conducted in the
first bank of Marseilles.?Longman's
Tho New York Sun says that during

steady decrease in the wages of women,
and it seems likely to go further. There
are several onuses fi r tho decrease. For

clusively to women. These men aro
mostly Poles, Hungarians ami Italians,
who will work for the smallest of
wages. Foreign women are also com?

American women cannot think of tak?

ods for forcing down wage.-. During
tho holidays they take on cheap help,

women are said to be working for from

unemployed is steadily increasing.?
