Few of the products of the counter feiters’ art find their way to the exe cution block which every well regu lated bank maintains for the purpose of putting “queer” money out of cir culation. Occasionally the receiving teller has the satisfaction of placing a counterfeit coin on the block and, by a well-directed blow of the die faced hammer, ending its unlawful career; but most of the spurious dimes, quarters and halves pass current with little inconvenience to the community, for there are places in which they are seldom if ever refused, says the New York Post. These places are the saloons. Wheth er actuated by superstition or by long headed business sense, few’ saloon keepers will question the integrity of a coin ottered over the bar. “We use them in cur business,” said a Park row bartender the other morn ing when a coin of doubtful value was offered to him with a remark that it looked “queer.” "How is that?” “Well, you see, I take this counter feit quarter and serve you your drink and give you a good dime in change. It looks like a dead loss, but next t ime you want a drink you give us the prefer ence over the other four saloons in the block. It brings us your trade. “if you get any more of ‘the queer’ passed on you, you come here with them, and then you feel you have to come again to make up for passing them on us, and so 3011 see it pays us well.” “But what do you do with these coins?” the bartender was asked. “Well, there are several ways of us ing t hem. If one of our customers be gins ci Topping off we pass a bad qua rter on him, and he comes back, and, order ing a drink, lays down the ‘queer’and says he got it from us. Of course we make good and apologize, ask him to ‘have one’ on the house, and this sel dom fails to bring back his custom. “Or a stranger comes in who looks as if he might make a good customer. I tip the cashier, and he puts a bad coin in the change. Sometimes we let the man carry it away, so it will fetch him back. Other times the bartender will pretend to spot the coin as the man is gathering in the change, and in nine eases out of ten the man will say: *()h, well, i’ll take another drink for it.’ In eit her case the bogus coin helps ns to make the man our customer. I tell you there is use for ‘the queer* in business —in our business, at least.” HIS REMARKABLE SHOT. Entitled Him to the Chn in pionab i p Over 111 nek hi rd-Killer* of the World. “Speaking of remarkable shots,” said the man from one of the near-by parishes, relates the New Orleans Timcs-Democrat, “in me you be hold the man who holds the blackbird championship of the world, and while the fart is not gener ally known, there are a few men in my parish who can testify to the truthful ness of my story. This expert shoot ing you see on the stage, the mirror trick, shooting backward, breaking clay pigeons and balis; circus shooting, wild west shooting and all that kind of thing, is childishness in comparison with 1113' record. One evening several years ago 1 slipped over the levee up in my parish iff shoot at a drove of black birds which 1 found feeding in the rice field. The birds were scattered over an acre of ground. Just as an experi ment I gave the gun a swing as I tired both barrels, covering in the range of of the swing the whole area covered by the birds. I was in close shooting range. To m3’ surprise only a feu birds attempted to fly away, and these few fell a short distance from where the3’ started. Others hopped around in a stunned sort of fashion. ] never saw as many dead blackbirds in my life. 1 thought 1 was dreaming at first. Several friends came along and I in vited them to help themselves. Ido not know how many sacks I filled with birds, and I would actually be ashamed to guess at the number 1 killed. The gun was heavily loaded, and the birds were grouped in a basin which was al most the shape of a bowl, because of a sharp bend in the levee line. Many of the birds werd not wounded, or bruised in any way, so I figured that the fear ful slaughter was mainly due to con cussion.” “Lemme smoke that pipe awhile,” said the man on the other side of the table, and the members began to talk of other things. '■Terrible Parasites of Egrypt. Two parasitic worms, bilharzia and ankylostomum, work terrible havoc among natives of Egypt. How these parasites reach the intestines has been a matter of much speculation, but Prof. Looss, accidentally infectinghim self with ankylostomiasis by allowing a drop of water to rest on his hand, has been able to prove that the larvae of one species at least enters the body through the skin. As the same is doubtless true of bilharzia, simple wading in the infected Nile explains the prevalence of two dread diseases. —Medical Journal.
