wouldbe well to examine Into the^l^n^ .abilities as to returns for the dig^^gers.
LongIsland, geologically speaking, is^I terminal moraine. The gravels, sand^and Lam which make up her soil were^brought down ages ago, In front of a^gla. ler that had plowed Its way soutli-^ward from tho upper part of the con-^tin, nt, As this great mass of lot^pushed Its way toward a lower lati^^tude.

awaitedthe appearance of Ihe trains.
Itwas laic in ihe afternoon when they
hovein sight, coming at a snail's pace^beyond the bridge which spans the
Yellowstone,At the eastern approach,
thefirst .section came lo a full stop;
thlawas the flrsi exclamation point, a
BQUadroaof sold ten was sent out to^raeonnoiter. The bridge was carefully^Inspected, i.in was found not to have

theroar platform of the last Pulhnan,
idlingin lb. can, on top, in Hie vesti^^bules, on ihe steps ami. in fa. i, every^^where bill on tho trucks, When the^Inst section pull. .1 up ill front of the^depot, ih. platform was black with^men. women ami children and the

Everybody,however, maintained a re-^spectful silence. There waa not Ikon,^nor, indeed, had there ever been, any^attempl guide to commit an overt act.^The strikers were peaceably inclined,^notwithstanding the news had gone^abroad lhat Livingston was n seditious^sp.d the hot bed of the strike.
Hulas I was saying. Captain Lock-^wood alighted. He gave every evi^^dence of being greatly excited, not lo^say somewhat intoxicated. With^clanking saber which hung from a belt^of twisted golden at rungs, he strode up^tho platform, resplendent in full dress^officer's uniform. The squadron of^colored SO Id ten which followed, ad^^vanced with flsed bayonets ami belts
fullof cartridges.

Aftera lew oilier minor episodes, the^trains nwved on, u company of soldiers^being left at Livingston, under com^^mand of Lieutenant O'Neal of fori^Custer.

Womenhave a weakness fo coun^^terfeiting. The first person ever ox. -^cuted for that crime was a woman.^She was an Knglish woman, named^llarbara Spencer, and whs put to death^In 17:11 for making false shillings. She^was strangled and burned at the stake.^Curiously enough, her accompli.es^were acijuited.
.Nancyhi.Id was one of the most re^^markable female counterfeiters' tvor^known In this country. She belonged^to a family of noted forgers. She rar-^rl..1 on her notarioua trade for more^than M years in Chicago, and was ar^^rested there many times, tin one of^these no asi.ins a hd of llbre paper w as^discovered on her person. The gov-
srassenloauDinai w ere rasnplototy nt a
loSS10 Know how she had obtained^this. Finally she confess, d that a^chemical solution had bora used to^wash Ihe fa.es of the miles and make^them perfectly clean. Thus she was^in the habit of taking |1 bills and^ehaagtag them Into large .1. nomina^^tions. The government authorities re^^leased her In return for this valuable
lafortnatiouami par toiling taunt what^las solution was. However, th. y bad
hershadow , d by flOteCllVag and tlnally^caught h. r with $17,ami worth of coun^^terfeit money in g box. She was found^guilt) upon seven different IndlCtmenl
forcounterfeiting and was sentenced^la eight years in state prison, where^she finally died.
Oneof the cleverest tricks ever^pla^.d on L'ncle flam was invented by^ii woman who lived in 1'hilad Iphia.^HOT plan was to take $10 and ltd gold^pieces, and with a small drill worked^by steam power, to bars out ihe inside^and then refill them with some has,-
ajatalibeing very oarefnl that they^should weigh exactly the right amount^when she had Bnished, This aba ac^^complished by drilling through the^milled . dge of the coin, and th* n, after^lllllng the hole, covered ii with u little^of the extracted gold. In this way she^made |7.r^0 on every eagle and about^$16 on every double eagle. The officials^of the secret service say that this Is^the safest device ever invented. f.,r^cheating the treasury.
Counterfeitingis very apt to run In^families. This, of course, is nntural,^as a father brings up his son or^daughter to follow his profession.^Women who would otherwise be good^are often led into this sort of crime by^man y ing men w ho carry it on as a^business. Bttl sometimes It works Hu^^nt her way. Women teach their hits-^hands how to make false money. This^is w hat sagnened when Ban Boyd n yr-
rledMary AckerRUM of Indiana. Her^father was one of the most successful^counterfeiters of his day, and his^daughter had a thorough acquaint^^ance with the art. Mrs. Boyd carefully^taught her husband all the secrets of^the trade, and he became one the^Boa) fumoiis forgers of the age.^They canied on the business with
racka high degree of skin that they^w. re not captured for years, and, wh. ii^at last the set ret service Hawkshawi^did run then down, not a single coun^^terfeit plate, note or coin was found in^their possession. When their house^was marched $s,on) in g..o.i money
w.i.jfound. This Small amount was
nilthe money they had accumulated
duringall their years of crime, tlf^course, (he offlosrs cotiht not touch it.^Aft. rw ar.l IgHhllSlfl evident e w as se^^cured to convict them nnd they WON^s. tit to prison. They both Claimed b
kgconverted while in state prison, and
aftertheir release BOtUod in Chicago,^wh.p' they Bp patently lived nn hon^^est life.
AggaU Hint annoyed the secret ser^^vice very ttin. li wus that of a woman^who employed a clover dodgo, sh-
wentto a large shop and selected a^valuable shawl. To pay for this she^hamled the clerk a Baited Slabs
treasurynote for $i.o^m^. He took the^money and disappeared, not returning^for several minutes. When he came^haik she uskod him why he had kept^her wailing, and he Confessed that he^had taken the bill to a bank near by^to be sure that It was good. She pro^^tended to he very angry and said that^she would not buy the shawl on any^ac. unit and walked out of Ihe shop.^A little later in the day she returned,^anil said that as she could not And^any other shawl that suited her gg^Well In the other shops, she had de^^rided to take It in spite of the Insult^Offered her. She gave him the H,f4t^bill, and getting the shawl and the^change, left the shop. The owner of^the shop afterward discovered that the^note he finally accepted was a coun^^terfeit. The tirst hill had been flood,^but on her return she gave him the^false one. which was a wonderfully^. lev. r Imitation. The secret service^was much agitated about this and sev^^eral others of the thousand-dollar bills^which turned up. but they have since^. aptured the plates.
Practicallyevery gang of counter^^feiters ever arrested has had women^associates. In the otllre of the s.. r. t^service In Washington there Is a large^frame, four fUSt ggjgnwBj tilled with the^photographs of women who have cith^^er made or passed false money. Men^almost always employ their wives or^daughters for the purpose of ^shov^^ing^ their counterfeits.

Tho^han.l of man bus completed the work the^Creator left saSSUShOd, This H mi-natu^^ral reservoir has a rapacity of nearly ton^million gallons of water. It Is lapsed bar a^10-Inch main of welded steel tub. s and a^| gork main of Kalom. rn Iron. The fall^is such that th. re Is no possible chance^for tho water to become rusty er gath. r^other Impurities.
The6-ln.h main, which connects with^both the large reservoir and the num.',^runs parallel with the pi-Inch main for a^considerable distance, but branches off^neur the outskirts of the city sod runs to^a distributing res. rv olr en a hill overlook^^ing the town. This reservoir has a :l-lnch^brick wall lined with cement; the dlmen-^sltns are 10x00, in feel deep. As It is over^JO feet higher than the city and iii feet^lewer than the main reservoir, the r.-^s,ne supply of water which It holds^would easily tide ov. r any accident to tin^ages lines outside of town.
