Tne vault in the treasury department
where the $50,000,000 reserve is kept is
one of the sights of Washington. It
has long been the custom to hand to
each bride who entered the vault a pack
age said to contain $5,000,000. When
the fair creatures had expressed their
surprise, after the fashion of the sex, the
package would be carefully taken from
them and put away. It has generally
been understood by knowing ones that
the value of the package was largely
imaginative, but its real contents were
never actually known until a few days

then found that this $5,000,000 package,
which had been so fondly handled, sim
ply contained a few pieces of blank pa
per. "We have carefully replaced it in
the vault to make future brides happy,"
said Treasurer Jordon to a reporter.
