NO FIGURES ON BACK Much Useless Scroll and En graving Is Abolished. real artistic beauty and is expected to meet with popular favor. Its size will be found far more convenient to carry in a book than our present bank notes. In making the new bills smaller it is expected they; will wear much longer and that pocketbooks will be made in shapes to carry them without folding. As it is now the various denominations of bank notes are a trifle too large to be carried laid out flat in a book. The folding of a bill in the center or other wise shortens its life and through very little handling under such conditions soon tears in two. L. W. THAV1S. - THEY ARE REBELS STILL, Government Takes Precautions Against Counterfeiting. 1 BEST For Every Baking Washington, Feb. 20. A great transformation,' more radical than anvthinsr in the past, will be accom- ' plished in the paper currency of the United States when the new issue in all denominations, recently decided upon. is put into circulation. The notes will be smaller, much smaller. They . will be "backed"' in every de nomination with a design regarded as the master work of Kenyon Cox, the famous sculptor, and as the last word in artistic development of paper cur rency. America enthroned between Peace and Prosperity three draped femi nine figures. Labor bringing his prod ucts to Prosperity as a girt to America, and Peace dispatching Mercury on a mission of commerce to distribute the commodities of America to the world, two additional partially draped mascu line figures, the whole without back ground of any sort this is the group that Kenyon Cox has drawn. The de sign has been accepted by the United States. There is not a sipn of a dol lar mark or any value figure or letter ing except the "U. S. A." that appears under the central figure. The fine arts commission has ac-; cepted the design, and the bureau of engraving and printing is now rushing the. work of engraving the plates. More than a thousand will be needed. While the new "back" is to appear on notes of all denominations, only the design for the "face" of the one dollar bill has been accepted. A photograph will not be made public of this note until the middle of April. Washington on the Dollar Bill. The "face" of the new one dollar note bears the portrait of George Washington in miniature, enclosed in a medalion, with no other engraving surrounding it except the border of the note, a simple design in scroll work, with the value in each of the four corners. Other past presidents' portraits are to adorn the notes of other denominations. The new notes will be six inches long by two and one-half Inches in width. This is about two-thirds the dimensions of the money now in cir culation. "The new money will lqok as paper money ought to look," according to the designer, ' tested by modern standards of artistic taste and practical con venience for handling. It is generally acknowledged that our American cur rency is clumsy ana anuquaiea in style, as compared with that of Euro pea n. countries- France, and England, especially. "Foreign bank notes, as a rule, are economical in size, line in texture and simple, though with elegance and dig nity, in the pictorial design printed upon them. These are qualities which fittingly characterize a great nation's currency not a maze of complicated lathe work or a. tangle of meaningless scrolls, or large surfaces of heavily shaded engraving, such as is ordinar ily put in on a portrait plate of a line reproduction for black and white printing of the effects of an oil paint ing." Pleased Tliat Back Is Clean. Designer Cox is especially pleased that all the official features of the bank note, all numbering, lettering and signatures will be on the "face" of the bill, leaving the "back" a clean slate for the allegorical design. All precautions against counterfeiting, he considers, are safely entrusted to the bureau of engraving and printing. The figures were studied from mod els. America was drawn from a pro fessional model who has figured in other works by the artist. The model for Mercury was his own 15 year old son. a tall, slim, good looking youth. Mr. Cox does not regard his design as revolutionary or iconoclastic. A cubist conception or a post-impressionist figure would have justified such criticism, but he considers his w-ork as most conservative even in the nov elty that it extends to the new money of the United States. Treasury officials expect that with in two years' time practically all of the bank notes in circulation will be re deemed and displaced by the new ones. The new currency is a thing of IT IS A GOOD SHOW. Top of World in Motion l"p to Advance Notices. "The Top o' the -World- ta -Motion." the moving picture show at the Auditorium.-is fully up to advance notices, and that is no small compliment as the pictures were heralded as being welt worth seeing at prices double those that are being charged, in Topeka. The six reels are educational in na ture as they not only show interesting phases of animal life in the frigid re gions, but depict, the natural beauties of the realm of ice and the customs of the native people. School children who miss seeing this show will miss an opportunity that has never before presented itself to the youth of To peka. , The film which shows the chase of Arctic explorers in a boat after polar bears swimming in the ocean is thrill ing in the extreme. So clear is the water that the bears may be seen dis tinctly swimming along under the sur face. A herd of eight hundred walrus is shown, and the films include many exciting animal hunts. From a scenic standpoint the show is remarkable. Mountains, icebergs and waterfalls are projected on the screen in all their magnificence. There will be two shows tonight: Oen at 7:15 o'clock and the other at 9:15. A section of the big hall will be reserved at the early hour for the members of the Commercial club and their wives who will enjoy a line party. The attendance Wednesday was not as large as it should have been consider ing the quality of the pictures. SHE WANTS THE GLORY. Zapata and Salazar Will Hncrta. Not Join Mrs. Pankhiirst Accepts Responsibility for Wrecking House. Cardiff. Wales. Feb. 20. "We have blown up the chancellor of the exche quer's house," said Mrs. Emmeline , meeting of suffragettes here. "The au- iureaay thonties need not look for the women who did it. I personally accept full responsibility for it." Mrs. Pankhurst declared that if she were sent to penal servitude she would go on a hunger strike. -The government will then have to set me free," she added, "or let me die. If I drop out a hundred women are ready to take my place." Douglas, Ariz., Feb. 20. Mexican officials here expressed the belief that Zapata. Orozco, Salazar and other reb els will not join Huerta. The declare Huefta will lack the necessary support to make him more than a. passing in cident and, that De La Barra is the man upon whom the salvation of Mexico depends. General O'Hara, at Agua Prieta, Sonora, favors De La isarra. Is Huerta Bis Enough for Job. ' .1 .faso, reo. ru: w hile rejoicing at the overthrow- or Madero, rebel agents here and Diaz sympathizers among the Mexican army officers at Juarez express doubt of the ability of ueneral Huerta to handle the situa tion. Doubt was expressed over press dispatches saying that General Diaz had accepted Huerta's claim to the provisional presidency. Huerta is not popular in northern Mexico, his ad ministration as commander of the northern military- zone having resulted in much ill feeling among officers and civilians. "We will sustain the existing gov ernment," declared Colonel Juan X. Vasquez, commander at Juarez, when asked today regarding his position. Speaking as well .for General An tonio Rabago, from whom he had re ceived notice of the change of national government. Colonel Vasquez con tinued: . "The army will maintain order and sustain .the acknowledged government. Ali is quiet in the north and I believe will remain so. The army is bound to sustain whatever president is named, be it Francisco Villa, Inez Salazar or any other bandit." : He made no direct reference to Gen eral Huerta. However trouble at Juarez and other points in the state is threatened by the volunteer troops, whose officers, many of them former insurrecto leaders under Madero, are expressing their faith in the ousted president. Xearly half of the 1,000 troops at Juarez are volunteers. It is pointed out by rebel agents here that the claim "to the provisional presidency of Emilio Vasquez Gomez, made some days before, the Huerta re voit against Madero. will complicate matters seriously. Vasquez Gomez is now in the rebel camp below Juarez with General Inez Salazar, recognized commander of the northern rebels. In view of Huerta's lack of popu larity among the rebels the Vasquei Gomez program, they say, will stand better chance of being accepted by Salazar in the north, Zapata in the south and the many other rebel chiefs n arms. ! by the courts.

Howe at the Grand for a three nays- V.iy hoRinntng tonislrt is that showing what inveterate smokers the Hollanders ar-. It is the indulgence in this habit, com bined with the peculiar climate, that in a.. es them the calmest, most deliberate and phlegmatic race on earth. Tobacco smoke is called their second breatli and a cigar or pipe is in evidence with them so incessantlv that it is like a sixth t'inger of their hand. So confirmed is this habit, that many Dutchmen go to sleep at ntent with their pipes between their lips no they can find them immediately an awak ening in the morning, and light them before rising! The boatmen a type ot which is presented in Mr. Howe's series measure distance not by the number t miles from place to place but by so niany pipes of tobacco smoked en route! For these reasons it is perhaps natural to ex pect that the world's champion smoker was a Hollander. His name was Meu. heer Van Klaes. He consumed, on an average, one hundred and fifty srams -( tobacco every day. yet he lived to the prime age of 9S. His last will and testa ment was extraordinary. After bequeath ing his worldly goods to his relatives, he directed how he should be buried, as fo: -lows: "I wish that all my friends who are smokers shall be especially invited to my funeral. Each ot them shall receive a package of tobaccoand two pipes, and they are requested to smoke uninterrui l edly during the funeral ceremonies. My body shall be enclosed in a coffin lined with the wood of my old cigar boxes. Beside me in the casket shall be laid my favorite meerschaum, a box of matches and a package of tobacco. When my body is lowered into the grave, every per. eon nresent is reauested to pass by and cast upon it the ashes from his pipe." These touching requests were faithfully complied with. His friends attended m prodigious numbers: and at the funeral, the smoke was so dense that a horn had to be blown to enable the mourners to find the door.

The operetta had a record season at the New Tork Casino, and the manaeement chose it as the most appropriate bill o'play befitting the pecu liar charms of Miss Suratfs histrionic art and physical beauty.

It Is Best and Shoots Himself. London. Feb. 20. "It is best die when one is happy.' This theory bf suicide was enunciated and put into practice by Sidney A. Cohen, e young undergraduate at Exeter college. Oxford, on whose body an inquest wn held today. Cohen s chum, Henry AUpass, told a tragic story of the motiveless selt murderer. After an evening at the Uni versity club, the two chums sat and talked in Cohen's room. Soon Cohen took a pistol out of a drawer, saying: "I wish I had the courage." Allpass told him to put the pistol down but a little later Cohen sent a bullet into his head and died in a few minutes. Allpass told the coroner that Cohen held the theory that one should die whu happy. There was apparently no other motive. SEEK OLYMPIC HONORS. Germans Announce Subsidy to Make ' Good Showing Certain.
