TO CHANGE MONEY
Counterfeiters' Activity Has
Aroused Treasury Department.
MAY REDUCE BANKNOTES.
Assistant Chief W. H. Moran of Secret
oervice Says Increase of Spurious
Money fa Due to Fact That Criminals
Learned Photo-engraving.
Miver.—That wry important, and
radical vlianges am to be made in the
paper used and the printing of cur
rency by the government is predicted
bv XV. II. Moi'an, assistant chief of the
Vnitod States seerot service. The tin
usual activity of counterfeiters during
the last several months has moved the
treasury department to new efforts,
and a system is being devised that It
is believed will reduce counterfeiting
to a minimum.
"The silk threads in our certificates."
says Mr. Moran. are entirely mislead
ing to the general public. The average
person holds the idea that the govern
ment has a secret process of manufac
turing the paper on which banknotes
are printed, whereas it is merely a dis
tinctive process. A note may not ap
pear just right, but when it shows the
silk threads the public takes it for
granted that it is g,,od."
The existence ot' more tluin 200 dif
ferent varieties of banknotes is pointed
out by Mr. Moran a a condition that
makes the raising or these certificates
an easy matter by counterfeiters. Tin
public cannot be expected to carry all
these forms of notes in mind, he says.
'mil as a result one. two, live and ten
asi dollar certiticates are being raised to
notes of higher denomination quite
generally.
Mr. Moran expects to see a new pa
per adopted by the government soon
that, will make counterfeiting more dif
ficult. and at the same time enable the
public more readily to protect itself.
Ue also expects that the tiOO or more
different lypes of banknotes will bo
reduced to possibly one of each denom
ination* eliminating a big part of the
chance of their being "raised."
The increased activity of counterfeit
ers is attributed t" improvements con
stantly being made in photo-engravinv
processes.
The art has advanced, says Mr
Moran, to the point where duplication
is a science thtil many crooks have
mastered. A ease cited is that or
James S. Vertress. arrested for the
wholesale distribution of ten and twen
ty dollar gold certificates in Denver
and vicinity In 1013.
Vertress was captured in Pennsylva
nia through the efforts of Assistant
Chief Moran. Vertress attended a pho
tographers' school and took a course in
engraving before establishing a coun
terfeiting plant in an isolated mountain
district in Kentucky.
A general warning is sounded by the
government otlicer against men who
are Impersonating federal officers.
Many crooks are going about the
country, lie says, representing them
selves to be agents of the department
of justice, the revenue or the secret
service departments. They defraud
boarding houses, hotels and the people
generally and in that way not only rob
many victims, but bring discredit upon
the agents of the government.
"Every government agent lias proper
identification papers," says Mr. Moran,
"and where there is a doubt these pa
pers should hv demanded."

The chickens didn't like either intox

became lively in their appreciation and
their antics after the spraying.
It was found that the drunken chick,

of brothers and sisters which were de

the alcoholic hens averaged 1S4 eggs
apiece, while their white ribbon sis

Flattery has the second greatest
speed, the professor finds, traveling
from 400 to 500 yards In the same

slowest of all, moving only about two

computations, he said, were based on
the speed of the sound of an alarm

HORSE SENSE IN fRACTOR
BUYING
Something of Interest to Every Farmer
in thie Community
That the light tractor mav replace
the horse in the heavy grind of farm
work, just as the automobile lias re
lieved him from pounding over the
roads to town to keep the family in
groceries, is a proposition to which
most farmers in this vicinity will
agree. But when it comes to replac
ing their horses with a tractor, manv
obstacles appear, as was shown at a
recent tractor plowing demons! ration
where all sorts of tractors were going
through their paces.
A salesman had shown an Inter
ested farmer all the good points his
tractor possessed. He had plowed for
him, shown him how easy it was t.p
control the tractor, and somewhat
against the farmer's will, had got him
Into the seat and let him start it,
steer it, and stop it. He then began
to tell him how much better it was
than horses for farm work. "That's
just it," broke in the farmer, "if it
was a horse I'd know what you are
talking about, but this thing might
be wind broken and spavined in »!!,
hind legs and I probably wouldn't find
it out until it was paid for and I had
taken it home and used it a while.
No, I'm not in the market today, I've
got to look around before I buy."
In this plain statement is shown the
frame of mirid of the majority of pro
spective light tractor buyers. They
all know how to judge horses, because
they have raised them, broken them
to work, and studied them. Buying
a new horse is simply measuring him
up to standard specifications.
But ho» is a farmer to know he Is
gettingsomewherenear value received
when he hii.vs a tractor with no ''stand
ard specifications" on which to relv?
Or, putting it as it really is, how is lie
to know what are "standard specilica
tions" wh"n all tractor manufacturers
claim theirs as standard? How is lie,
in other words, to detect spavined and
weak lunged conditions in a tractor1#
From the results of experiments
snd tests upon all types of tractors, a
general summary can be made show
ing the points of merit necessary for
good, serviceable light tractor to
have. For the average farm, the
amount of power should range in the
neighborhood of eight horse on the
drawbar and sixteen on the belt. On
the average 160-acre farm, according
to census reports, there are six work
horses and a colt. The tractor with
an eight-horse drawbar pull gives a
little more power than the average
farmer has in horse-flesh and is, there
fore, a practical size. A tractor for
use In all sizes of fields should be
low and short coupled. This makes
short turns possible and gives avail
able power where orchards are to
be cultivated. Select one with two
drive wheels. A single drive wheel
cuts the tractor's chances at the load
in half. Would you buy an automo
bile with a single rear "wheel? Two
drive wheels with a differential are
absolutely necessary to meet all trac
tion conditions. Be sure, also, that
the wheels, both front and rear, are
high enough to give clearance in soft
or uneven ground. This height, also,
gives a better leverage on the load.

political science class under Professor
K. U. Fite, were in court learning
something of judicial proeddure when
the witness on the stand, in answer to
a question whether he bad consulted
his wife regarding a certain action,
said:
"Xo, sir 1 don't have to. My wife Is I
boss In the house."
Patter, patter, patter went white
gloved bunds in earnest applause of
the witness' honest attitude, and the
young women nodded approvingly at
one another.

The power plant of the tractor
should bj a motor of the simplest
possible construction with low speed
snd the fewest possible number of
Cylinderstodeliver the required power.
The high-speed motor wears faster,
uses more fuel, and relies too much
upon its speed for power. Conse
quently a low-speed tractor reduces
possible repair costs and gives a maxi
mum of service with a minimum of
trouble.
If a light tractor is to mean economy
on the farm, it must use kerosene as
fuel. The increased consumption of
gasoline is greatly raising the price,
and experts predict» shortage in the
supply for the near future. On the
other hand, kerosene is not of so
general use and consequently is far
cheaper. In selecting a kerosene trac
tor great care is needed, for many of
the so-called kerosene-burning trac
tors are not able to live up to their
claims under actual tests. Be sure to
select a tractor that can burn kero
sene as evenly, smoothly, and with as
much power as gasoline. Test the
contents of the fuel tanks yourself.
Finally, when you go to market for
tractor, select the product of a rep
utable company who have had years
of experience in making successful
kerosene tractors. They will not be
experimenting at your expense in time
and money ,for their product will lie
standard. They alone, In the tractor
field, can realize that their best inter
ests are to serve your interests and
Sr
ve you your money's worth in trao
power.
