WILL HAVE FARE
DROPPED IN BOX
Valley Railway Co. Decides
on Trial of New System
on White Hill Line
Leiuoyne. Pa., Dec. 30.—Announce
. ment was made by officials of the
'Valley Railways Company to-day
that fare boxes will be placed for use
lon the White Hill line on January I
in an effort to ascertain what patrons
i think of the system used in larger
I cities and which recently was placed
in use by two ct#.ipanics in Wash
ington. D. C.
In connection with the installation
of fare boxes on this line passengers
will board the car by the rear door
and will alight by the front. This
system has not been used at any time
on West Shore lines. The push but
tons also will be used on the cars for
the first time.
Passengers in getting on the cm
are to drop their fare in the box. If
I they do not have exact change the
coin will be given to the conductor,
who will make the change and re
turn It to the passenger, who will
then drop the fare in the box. Bills
of more than $3 denomination will
not be changed by the conductor.
The reasons udvanced for installing
this system temporarily, one of the
officials said, is a move for facilitat
ing service on West Shore lines. In
addition, it Is pointed out, the system
will provide quicker movement of
cars.
If the system is used on all cars
it w 4 U mean remodeling most of
them and changing them into the
"pay-as-you-enter" type. The boxes
will remain a reasonable length of
time, it is understood.

HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH
FIND WORTHLESS
CHECKS ON BANK
Columbia Merchant Brings
Suit After Discovering the
Spurious Signatures
Columbia. Pa., Dec. 30.—Among
fraudulent checks discovered in the
Central National Hank here is one
ser.-t in by the bank at New Freedom
and another by a Gettysburg bank.
Both of these are drawn to the order
of "Melvln Staub" and in the corner
of each is the notation, "for turkies."
One of the checks is for $46.70 and
the other for $43.33. The checks
were not honored by the Columbia
bank and the New Freedom and Get
tysburg institutions will therefore
have to stand the losses.
Isaac Morrison-, a clothier,- has en
tered suit before Justice of the PeaJbo
McCracken against Paul H. Kauff
man, charging him with passing a
bogus check. It is not believed Kauff
man is responsible for the checks
cashed at New Freedom and Get
tysburg, but it is said other mer
chants in Columbia also cashed
checks passed by Kauffman.
Morrison alleged that a man rep
resenting himself as Paul H. Kauff
man came to his store and after pur
chasing a bill of goods amounting to
$7. he tendered in payment a check
for $32. Morrison cashed the check
and gave the man $25. It was later
discovered the check was a forgery.

Making Proves Failure
Williamsport. Pa., Dec. 30. —The
time honored custom of scalding a

process for modern times, In the

ntnger killed a big hog und when it
was ready for the "debristling" pro
cess placed it on a stone boat and
poured gasoline over it, applying the
match.
At first it looked as though the
experiment might be successful,\ but
the boat caught lire and an instant,
later a pail of gasoline burst into
flame.
Alarmed by the impending loss of
his tine pig, Benninger gave the pail
a vicious kick and came near "kick
ing the bucket," according to the
common usage of the phrase.
Ills clothing caught lire, .and but
for the timely aid of his son he
would have been seriously burned.
The hog. somewhat singed, was
rescued.
