BEWARE OF "ONES" THAT ARE RAISED Kansas City, Mo.,'1 April 3. Note raisers are operating' extensively throughout the Middle West, accord ing to Fred Tate, bead of the federal Secret Service Department of this district. "Federal Reserve s bauk notes of the $1 denomination ; aro most attractive to pen artists who realize a profit of $9 on each note raised and successfully passed. ! ... "There is no reason why any one chould be the victim' of note raisers," says Mr. Tate. "For their own pro tection any one should become fa miliar with the distinguishing marks of the new Federal Reserve notes. The predominating features on Fed- ral Reserve bank notes of each de nomination are easily apparent. Note the different denominations: One dollar note, head of Washing ton. Two dollar notes, head of Jefferson Five dollar note, head of Lincoln. Ten dollar note, head of Jackson. Twenty dollar note, head of Cleve land. Fifty dollar note, head of Grant. One hundred dollar note, head of Franklin. "I explained these distinguishing marks to a Kansas City banker th? other day," Mr. Tate continued, "and ten minutes later the same banker accepted a one dollar note raised to no. Counterfeiting Is fast becoming a past art, according to Mr. Tate, al though spurious coins appear at In tervals. But the old notes and sil ver certificates obtained by the photo mechanical process, which once flood ed the market have become a nrity.

This is easily identified by a reproduction of both Lincoln and Grajit on Its face The double picture does not appear on any other note of any denomina tkm.

The draughts from the theatre, the coldness in winter, the heat in summer, and the entire lack of any form of comfort even In London, would be enough to deter most peo pie, even if they knew it beforehand, from going on the stage. "In the provinces it is fifty times worse, and the music-halls are inde scribably uncomfortable. They are dirty, they are cold, there is abso lutely no comfofrt of any kind. The Journeys are bad, and one spent most of. one's time waiting about cold sta tions. It is impossible to gt Proceedings Meeting County School Board Bartow, Fla., April 1st, 1918.
