A bank ofllcer, referring In n recent address to tho respoimiblllty of paying tollers, declnrcs that the Idea thatT huvIi officials wero rarely willing to rectify mistakes hnd little basis In fact. He added: "How is it that there exists la tho minds of many the Idea that pay ing tellers are inclined to resent even, tho suggestion that they make errors in counting money? I have never known one who made tho slightest Claim to Infallibility. Who has not heard the ancient nnd ott told story ot a teller who was asked by a person for whom he has cashed a check if lie hail not mado a mistake? As the narrative usually runs tho self satisfied money counter behind tho desk Is inclined to become Indignant nnd replies In n pompous and abrupt manner that he never makes mistakes. Tho consider ate party then states that the amount paid him exceeded that named in tho check, but the teller still maintains that there can be no error cither wny, as ho never makes mistakes. "Where is tho teller who upon being told ho bnd mado ail error would fall to politely inquire as to tho nature of tho samo? The Inference is that tell ers aro possessed of so much vanity nnd conceit that they lose the amount said to bo overpaid rather than ac knowledge nn error. How unlikely nnd ridiculous!" Now York Post. Junius Ton Ueblir Von Lleblg was skillful in correcting popular delusions on scientific subjects. A. notnblo cxumplo of this may be found la tho overthrow of the once much dUcussed theory ot "spontane ous combustion" a comparatively mod em error, dating, It seems, only from tho year 1723,. but which persisted long after I.avolsler had. explained the ruul nature ot fire, which was from time to tlmo put forwnrd. with success in the defense or persons on trial ror murder nnd received Its last support from Charles Dickens. His success tn tbW direction throws a pleasant light on tho progress ot civilization. Ono woo- ini- wiui t u-nulil linvo boon tin? ftilt-of. Von Lleblg had ho opposed himself to Bitch an error In tho sixteenth century when Kepler could only save bin moth er from golnn to the stake for witch craft by satisfying her Judges that mIiu possessed nono of tho signs essential to a witch. In those days Kepler did not dare- to- say that there wero no such things as witches. W. A. Sbcn Btono la Cttrnhlll Magazine. Webb's stamp photos aro tho latcs' 24 for 25c. 14-tt J. A.
