OVER PAYING OFF 10,000 HANDS. A Big Task Dona Weekly In Twent. Minutes. In a town which contains the chief plant of one of the biggest manufac turing corporations of the country, very Friday at 8 a. m. a policeman emerges from the door of a bank closely guarding three men who cross the sidewalk, enter a waiting carriage with bulky packages and are rapidly carried away. When the office of the corporation Is reached, three or four men in the carriage to carry the pack - ages to the paymaster's department i There thev dumo bills, silver dollars, t halves. Quarters and cents y to the amount of $120,000 upon one of the tables. Then every one gets busy. It is 8:15 o'clock by the big office elock, and that great pile of mixed money must be counted and verified to the last cent and then be distributed Into 10,000 envelopes In amounts of wide variation; and this must be ac- complished by 2 o'clock. . fYmrs sr. wnlatr-nftts ar thrown aside shirt sleeves rolled up, and six- teen clerks Jump to their places, know lng that the next six hours will de mand a closeness of attention and nimbleness of action rarely called for in ordinary business. Thre am four rvHahfwi tables each The 8 accommodating four clerks. The pay- and tbe line has struck its gait the master, who holds a memorandum of "work progresses so rapidly that the the contents of each of the money men do not halt in their progress. It packages, throws a heavy bag of coin becomes a steady stream of men walk on a table. Instantly it is untied and lng past the station at a fair gait, anu eight hands pull piles of the coins to- j a steady stream of money passing into ward them, and the counting begins., (their hands, without error and-, without At the other tables more coins or mischance. v ' ' '. 1 bills of various denominations are i The largest number of hands paid at being counted. As each bag or pack- any one station falls a little short-of age is completed the paymaster checks ; 800, and within twenty minutes from it off on his list tne time the first check is taken up the About an hour Is consumed In this , last man is paid, and the clerks are preliminary work. As the last bag is Parting back to the office. Here they checked off the paymaster heaves a count over the checks they have re irfch ot rfiltef The first stretch is cCived add to them the envelopes the passed; the amount is correct and 'they van iiuw KB i io me rem vcuiis. ui mo , - - - day. , count, and at 6:30 all are out of the In front of the first man at each office, after a day of systematic expedl table are placed a pile of bills with Hon which would be a record breaker small change, ana a tray containing if it was not of regular weekly occur frows of pay envelopes. The hands in Tenee. s . v this factory are all numbered, and the envelopes bear on the outside the printed number and the amount due to that man. The computation of these amounts has occupied a force of two dozen o more clerks the.whole preceding week. Much of the factory work is done by the piece, which entails an Immense amount of work in collating and, figur ing ' D Two days before pay day checks are distributed to, the hands, showing the amounts due to each, and any error, if i ,1 !

The first man at' each of these seizes an en-, Telope, rapidly counts out the money it calls for and passes both to his right- t- , 1,1 1, 4 . u. hand neighbor, who In turn counts It and passes it to the next man. He also counts it' and passes it on to the fouxth man. who packs it into the en velope. Thus each is counted three times, and the possibility of error al most eliminated. ( Silently and swiftly the sixteen men rush the work along, with an occasion al brief pause to test a coin or pass a doubtful bill over to the chief for in spection, while now and then comes a sharp call for "More fivesl" or "Nickels herel" Gradually the great piles of money diminish and the trays of filled en velopes pile up until at 2 or 2:30 a howl of relief, a stretching of tired arms, and the stamping of cramped feet proclaim the end, Quick work this. Four men. nave counted but 10,000 pay amounts in live hours. That means nearly ten each minute, and the amounts vary from $2 or $3 to $20 and $25, and call for all kinds of change. But the paymaster is not through Work yet He has much yet to do, and not a superfraous minute to do it In. Hastily munching a sandwicn, he counts over the money left and thus verifies the correctness of the amounts put up. If there's an error, his trou- bles have Just begun; but it i a re- markable fact that in five years, during which the sum of more than $20,000, 000 has been paid out in wages, only nee hag a recount been required. Finding the account correct, he pro ceeds to make any reduction which may be necessary purchases made Dy workmen trustee writs and assign ments to no-money-down, concerns have to be taken care of and with much ' groaning of spirit he calls an assistant to take out the required envelopes and help him to mark the deductions on them, and again make the proper change. It is 4 o'clock y the time this is straightened out, and preparntlotts must at once te made for the final dis tribution of the pay. There are six teen pay stations at various points in this great plant, and the pay envelopes tla boxes for transportation to these rtaflons. A-clerk is in charge of each i- - - . .

While a little girl about 18 months old, the only daughter of a young Suth erlandEhire crofter, living about a, mile from Jnverskin station, on the highland railway, was playing at her father cottage door, an eagle swooped down, gripped her in its claws and carried her off to the mountains, where some hours later her dead and mutilated body was found by a gamekeeper. At first there was no olew to the mys tery of her sudden disappearance. The little one had been playing in the sun shine while her mother was baking bread, and her father was still at work in the fields. Her baking finished, the mother pre pared tea, and called the child. As there was no response, she went to look for her, and, not seeing her anywhere, be came alarmed and went in search of her husband. Together they searched the country road, the fields and the hillside, calling the little one's name and waiting In vain for an answer. Crofters and gamekeepers and all their neighbors soon joined in the search in the gathering dusk, and under the sup position that the baby had been kid naped by gypsies or traveling tinkers,, of whom several had been seen in the neighborhood earlier in the week, search, parties were formed to scour the coun tryside, i No trace of any strangers was found, however, and not the faintest clew to the little one's fate. In despair the father, headed a party to search the river, though it was felt to be impossible that the child could have strayed so far. j Meanwhile, a gamekeepers' party was hunting through the dense broom which covered a neighboring hill, and while this Investigation was in progress one CARRIED OFF THE BABY. of the gamekeepers, recalling stories of lambs" being carried away by eagles, made his way toward the rocky crags near the crest of the hill. In a crevice in the rooks he saw a tiny shoe, and in a deeper cleft a little higher up he found the body of the missing child. . ; ' : ! The sight was a pitiful one. Both.' eyes were miselng, and. the child's face was covered with blood. From her right cheek a piece of flesh had been torn away, and on her arms, hands and neck were other wounds that told their own terrible story. On the clothing were found, outlined In the little one's blood, the cruel marks of an eagle's claws, and clutched in the baby's tiny hand was a bunch of eagle's feathers. The gamekeeper shouted for his fel low searchers when he discovered the child's body. Swiftly they gathered round the cleft in the rocks. There they stood silent with horror and sorrow when they saw the child. Some of them, rough, strong, sturdy men, wept. , ; The little one's mother was brought to the spot by the commotion, and be fore the news could be broken to her had caught sight of her baby's mangled body. ,( "., . " With a heart-broken cry she clasped the little one in her arms. She fainted, and had to be carried unconscious down the hillside to her cottage. The news soon spread through all the countryside, and the gamekeepers took their guns and spread themselves out to search for the eagle. This has been unsuccessful so far. ' Two years ago an eagle attacked and killed a deer in Sutherlandshlre, and fed on its body until the keepers drove It off. Lambs are sometimes missed and their skeletons afterward found on the hill tops. . - v It Is 50 years, however, since such a tragedy as that here related occurred. " The Original of Bluebeard. The original Bluebeards of nursery lore was Giles, marquis de Laval and marshal of France. He was a fearless general, and greatly distinguished him self under Charles VI. and Charles VII., but his bravery was completely eclipsed by his cruelty and wickedness. Wher ever he went he was followed by his band of actors, Borcerers, packs of hounds and crowds of retainers. It was said that he would gain the love of young boye and girls and then kill them in order to obtain their blood for in cantations ' and charms. The duke of Brittany, against whom he had commit ted a crime of state, condemned him to be burnt alive at Nantes, but later he took pity on him and remitted the sen tence so that he was strangled before he was burned. Conger Jry Diinyrecd. GRAND RAPIDS. Mich., June 17. The Conger Jury b?$ disagreed. It has been learned that the final ballot stood six for acquittal, five for convic tion and one blank.
