There are so many people In this

?ny method. * Th substance this'Was
the statement of J. A. Brock, of the
Hank of Anderson, this morning
when he referred to a $10 bill which
had been raised to $20, tho result
being that the bank lost $10.
Mr. Brock stated that the bill was
taken Into the bank recently nnd no
suspicion Was attached to it at that
time, lt went unnoticed, and not un
til this morning when ho received it
from Now York, where il had been
malled, along with some other cur
rency, was tho fraud discovered.
"Raised Note" ls stamped across the
bill, which is a very clever piece of
work. The bill had been raised from
ton dollars to twenty by means of
pasting the figure "2" over each of
the corners if the bill where the fig
ure "1" appeared. These figures
were probably secured by tearing tho
corners from a two-dollar bill, ac
cording to Mr. Brock.
