In tho United States District Court. As
suming? the role of detectives we shadow
the supposed counterfeiters until conditions
are such that we feel conviction sure, then
arrest and prosecution follows. ,
Since 0293 I have been chief of the. local
bureau and during that time Missouri has
ranked among the States having the high
est number of convictions each year of
counterfeiters. The average number con
victed a year is about sixty and the number
who are acqltted Is hardly worth mention
ing. Motto of the Department.
The motto of tho department la: "Be
pure Sod then go ahead." It Is considered
cf much more Importance to arrest an en
tire gang at once, even taking the chance
of one or more of them escaping, than to
arrest them singly on different days, and
meantime permit the other members of the
sang' to escure and destroy -all evidence of
their' orifne. for this reason the officers of
the department, with tireless energy, may
watch suspects for months at a time, and
then suddenly swoop down upon the ren
desvduz and, surprising the inmates, ar-
(reet them In the "very act of breaking the
, 2aw. Under those conditions conviction Is
absolutely sure.
In the time that I have been connected
-with the service It has been my fortune to
be connected with some of the most Im
portant cases that have come before the
attention of tho department. Dally accus
tomed to hearing reports of counterfeiting
and called upon to examine spurious coins
and fraudulent representations of Govern

This is because the majority of coins are

arrested, while, on the othsr hand, if we
had been informed in regard to tho matter
we would not rest till the entire company

In many cases the police notify us when
counterfeit coins have been found in cir

city, and those who know of the bureau
bring us Information. If many counterfeit
coins have been papyed In one section of the
city It is natural to suppose that the person

They appeared often at his ahed, but mem

Bluefleld. W. Va,. May 3L A huge black
bear was brought to this city and sold to
local butchers. Its weight was 13i pounds
and In capturing it a young man sustained
possibly fatal injuries.
For some time past the farmers living in
the "Wilderness" In Bland County, Vir
ginia, have missed their sheep. RccenUy
the partly devoured carcass of a fine ewe
was found. A party was organized to hunt
down tho carnivorous animal. The country
was scoured for hounds, ana a nne pac&
was gotten together. .... ., ...
The hounds soon struck the beast's trail,
ond in a short while one of the hunters,
Charles Burton, got a shot at the animal.
The bullet took effect, but did not check
the bear's flight.
However, others of the party fired with
equally effective aim. and the bear, after
carrying ten rifle balls around with hlra
for over an hour, was finally brought to
bay by the hounds.
In his eagnerness to be one of the Dis
patchers of the brute. John (Burton, aged
22 years, got too close to the bear, and be
fore he could get a shot, was bowled over
by the bear's heavy paws. His face was
badly lacerated by the blow, and after he
had fallen to the ground he received an
other blow which broke bis left arm.
The bear then bit nearly through Burtons
left leg and was gnawing at his stomach
when tho party came up. A shot, fired by
a man named Ramsey, ended Bruin's earth
ly career. .
The young man was removed to the noma
of his father on Klroberland Creek, where
he lies In a critical condition.
