New Jerseys state prison on January 26 that institution will lose the most notorious of its 1200 inmates says the New York Herald In appearance he somewhat resembles both the William H Seward and William M Evarts both once at the head of the department of state Picture a tall slender benev olentlooking man 81 years old with a strong intellectual face and the modest selfcontained manner ot Rus sell Sage and you have William E Brockway Heis not only a remarkable man but has given the secret service detectives of the Washington government more sleepless nights than all the other counterfeit money manufac tures in the country The secret of his socalled success has been his ability to make genuine bank notes and bonds seem counterfeit when compared with his marvelous work It is said that when United States treasury notes and Brockways coun terelts were handed to an expert for examination he threw out the genuine notes as counterfeit and pronounced Brockways money genuine This is why the man was considered so geot aiiIEH5ceT6tue Snahces6FfEe government When arrested and tried in court he managed his case with consummate skill and counsel for the government called it great luck when he was convicted at all r And even when sentenced to State prison he so frequently found ways of legal escape that men began to talk hypmotism and ask if Brockway had an assortment of charmed lives up his sleeveA CtICUt YANKEE Of course this extraordinary man is a Yankee a Connecticut Yankee born in New Haven in 1822 While a lad he was apprenticed to a printer there and began as roller and press boy in printing bank notes for the state banks and banks of New Haven The work was done in the presence of at least two directors who watched and counted the sheets as they went through the press The plates and paper belonged to the banks and were returned to the vaults and locked up when the printing of the notes was finishedIn work young Brockway soon became an expertwas skillful artis tic and original As the business grew a chemical knowledge of how to make better ink and paper became necessary and the boy was put un der the instruction of Professor Silli man of the Yale college laboratory to master the art of electrochemistry Young Brockway showed amazing ability and was early at the head of his profession Such was the beginning of his moneymaking career and being successful in manufactur ing bank notes for others he in time began to do business on his own ac countWhen I called on this man at the Trenton prison the other day I found t him to be one of the most popular and respected of the inmates He was at his duties as prison librarian and his face shown with a pleasing intellectual glow The library contains an unusually fine collection of books I did not see a poor book among them all standard works cf poems histo rians novelists and scientists from Plutarch and Homer to Thackeray George Eliot Carlyle Victor Hugo Darwin and Herbert Spencer Brockway seemed to hold the well worn books in great affection and kept them neatly bound covered and lettered on the backs and he seemed familiar with the literature and latest discoveries in science and archaeology- NOT AN ENGRAVER- I dont care to exploit myself or to defend my character in the newspapers said the aged pris oner but I do object to mislead ing the public with statements that are not true In the first place I am not an engraver as has often been as serted I never engraved a plate in my life and know nothing of the art in a practical or technical sense I am a printer That Is my profes slon The warden said he doubted if Brockway ever engraved a plate for he was not an expert in that partlcu lar line of banknote manufacturer His great skill lay in knowing how to print fur the engraved plates of othera better than almost any one I 1III I fI I I I I htandoit was said rival the best government work It is not true was there ply Here are BrockAays own views on counterfeiting There are no ex pert though there are good judges of paper money I once had a fairly good eye for distinguished difference between say two lines of paralleled ruling done by a machine liMen have sworn under oath that geometrical lathe work is equally dif ficult to duplicate yet there are many experts who can produce so perfect a copy that the maker of the orlgional cannot distinguish the difference be tween the two It is no secret that by wellknown chemical processes the most intricate specimens of lathe work can be absolutely reproduced CALLS BANKERS FOOLISH If the bank people and companies doing the engraving were not so hide bound and wedded to their methods and processes which they foolishly claim to be infallible they might in troduce new ways of manufacturing paper money that could not be coun terfeitedThis statement by Brockway is sig nificant for it is a fact that a few years ago on his release from Sing Sing he had a conference with several prominent bankers in Boston after they had been duly Informed at his request his record Brockway as sured them with great candor and earnestnes that he had invented a se cret ink which it used no forgery could copy or exactly duplicate Af ter talking the matter over with de tectives the bankers declined to place themselves and their money at his mercyput themselves in his pow er During the Trenton interview he referred to a conference he had once with Ross Raymond when they com pared notes and discussed the mis leading statements that had been published about Brockway liThe most difficult things to repro duce in counterfeiting bank notes said the prisoner are the portraits The endless variety expression in the human countenance is beyond the art of most men If one fats repro duce the exact shade of expression in the portraits of the wellknown men appearing on bank notes the public will instantly discover the bad workNO PRAISE FOR DETECTIVES- In speaking ot secret service arrests and his experience with detectives Brockway says that chance discovers more guilty men than the best de tectives He declares that he reformed twelve years ago when he left Sing Sing and had no intention of doing anything again of an illegal character But he soon discovered that no matter how honestly he lived enemies still hounded him and it was easy to take advantage of circum stances that might be twisted into suspicious acts and yet be entirely in nocentAs the counterfeiting of coins Brockway believes the proportion is small compared with paper money manufactured The process of coun terfelting hard money is easy Many persons are in it and but a few dollars in capital is required All one needs for the metal is one and oneball pounds of tin with an alloy of antimony and bismuth and a couple of pints of plaster of paris To make the coins look like silver give them a bath in nitric acid and salt ToI change them to gold add muriatic acid to the nitric acid Manufacturing counterfeit c ins to circulate in foreign countrie pec ally in South America hngbeen one of the productive r of the counterfeiting memlJ ne community But as a rule this kindI of money is made to order for foreign rascals who come to this country to have it manufactured for distribution by their own foreign gangs of crooks BROCKWAYS NEIGHBORS Brockways cell is on the second story or the southern tier of the pris on His next door neighbor is Mc Allister one of the Paterson young men there serving a long sentence for the murder of Jennie Bosschleter The warden says they are the hest be bayed men In prison Brockway said he had great sympa thy for the boys and was deeply Interested in their case and story Ow ing to the excellent management of k the big prison the young men who are going to die are in good health and waxing more robust every day It is remarkable what miracles model prison can perform Here 1 Brockway long the terror of the gov ernment and its picked men of the secret service transformed into a be mante best read man in the prlton His favorite books after works on science and logic are the novels of Scott and Thackeray and the poetry of Burn- and Shakespeare- It is worth noting that before he be came a printer in New Haven Brock way when a poor orphan boy left by Presbyterian parents begun his ca reer in the studio of Professor Morse then a portrait painter and later th discoverer of telegraphy Here Brock way learned something of art Pro lessor Morse was experimenting i the direction of printing in colors an was assisted by an employe Charles Tappan Co bank note printers of that day Young Brockway soon bettering his condition went as an apprentice to Tappan Co and there learned the bank note business Later when he got into trouble by being falsely accused as he claims he wanted to become a sailor He shipped as a cook but met disaster came near freezing to death and fi nally returned to his old shop and continued perfecting himself in the art of bank note printing He be came famed for his great kill and was selected to print the plates illustrating Trumbulls Histry ol Con necticutThere is one thing I want to deny most emphatically aid he as I was taking have of him that I have been at the head of a gang of counterfeiters There never was a Brockway gang and all statements to that effect are false I am my own master and am responsible for my acts I have nothing to do with others nor others with me- Brockways career as a forger and counterfeiter began in 1850 it is de Glared He was arrested by the gov ernment in October 1860 for the for gery ot 204000 United States 6 percent bonds For this he was sen tenced to thirty years in prison but upon his surrendering all his counterfeiting tools and giving valuable information concerning similar swindles sentence was suspended- He was arrested again in IS6S for forging Morris and Essex railroad boors snd sentenced to five years in state Frson The suspended sentence was for some reason not enforced against him- Brockway lived for many yearsun der the name of Spencer in Brooklyn with his wife son and daughter He passed as a sea captain and his ab sences front home was accounted for as voyages The lamily were members of Dr Clarks church of the Messiah and Brockway himself fre quently attended the services there He was supposed to be an eminent ly respectable member of society un til he had trouble with his wife Soon afterward he was arrested for crossing the Wall street dead line and his real character was disclosed It is said that his family up to that time had been in ignorance of his real business supposing him to be an honest engraver and printer The details of the arrest at Heboken of Brockway and his alleged accom plices have been widely published I The detectives found 200000 in Ca nadian notes with only the reverse side printed 200000 in United States gold certificatds nearly finished and fibre paper prepared for printing 400000 more It is said that the counterfeiters were backed by some the wealthiest and cleverest criminals In the country Best Liniment on Earth Henry D Baldwin Supt City Water Works Shullaburg Wis writes I have tried many kinds of liniment but have never received much

AirshiptfMichigan aha has an uirsHp Work has been begun here on a large flying machine designed after the modelof the airship invented by James Douglas n fanner of Texas township near Kalnmnxoo and which proved entirely uucccssful on its inl tial trip in thin city a few days ago The machine and it is the intention of the inventor to sail it from Kala mazoo to St Louis to compete in the airshipcontest at the exposition The small model tested here last week proved FO Hucctsiful in its op erations that the inventor lots the greatest confidence in the new ma chine he is having built and has Interested a number of local capitalists to finance the project Mr Douglass airship is in reality a flying machine as it depends entirely upon its wings for raising It from the ground and propelling it- S i No gas is used The airship now boing built is 361 feet in length and will ber entirely of thin sheet constructedI body of the machine is thing like a cigar the deck or upper side being flat and is about 18 inches in diameter and 5 feet wide in the widest part All the mechanism IF placed on the deck The machine will be operated by two small but powerful turbln engines using oil for fuel The enginesalso are an invtfn tion of Mr Douglass In designing his airstrip the Inven tor has followed the principles ofa bird in its flight It is equipped with four sets of double wings which operate in the same manner as those of bird when flying When a wing ol one set is taking the downward stroke the other wing takes what is termed a dead stroke tIand revolves into place to take the downward stroke again when the first wing starts on thetldeRd stroke Consequently one wing In each set Is constantly catching the air and propelling the ship The wings also revolve rapid ly enough to hold the machine in the air The wings are connected with a central shaft which Is nvolved by the engines All connections ore bevelgearThe apparatus is a large sheet steel fan composed of sv ral sections and acts like the tallot a bird When the machine is ready to alight the tail is set at an angle which CRUStS the ship to circle around In the air and the slowing of the ac tion ot the wings will nllow it to gently circle to the ground where it will rest on four pairs of strong steel springs thus preventing jar Judging from the speed made by this small model Mr Douglass be lieves that his machine will be able to make a mile a minute in a light wind and that it will carry 500 pounds in addition to its own weight Chicago Inter Ocean Carlisle PB Marton L tRov L D Waverly Texas writes Of a

bi apportioned among the States according to their population except that no State shall receive les than 250000 Of this sum Ken tucky will receive 620000 Each State receiving National aid from the Government must add a like amount to the sum received Thi will therefore cause the spending of 48000000 for roads and will build from 6000 to 7000 miles of road and will place in each State from 100 to 500 miles of fine hard road which will not be affected by frost or spring rains and on which the farmer can haul the year round It will be a great advantage to those living near it but it will be a far greater advan tage to the whole country because it will be a wonderful object lesson and will prove to everyone that a good i yeaar no matter are is a good and desirable thing it will make everyone who sees this road and uses it want more roads just like it to be built While under the Brownlow Bill the building of 6000 or 7000 miles o splendid road is a great thing yet i seems to many that the greatest ad vantage of this bill is the wonderful object lesson which 100 to 500 miles of fine road will produce when built UnionyGreat is Young Mr Beckham Those who have been making a study

Used in Vari ous Forms It Is now timely to administer to all women a little sermon on the value of lemons on the dressing table If you appreciated its many usts you would haVe a lemon always at hand In the morning before you are out of bed its usefulness begins Not merely as a bsautlfier but as a medicine for the juice of half a lemon squeezed into a tumbler of water no sugar is a most excellent cure for bilious complaints The fingers or Ginger nails may bave stains that refuse to yield to soap and water in which case a little lem on juice will usually prove succcslul Before manicuring the nails you should always soak them for at least five minutes in a basin of water in which are a few drops of lemon juice The skin which grows so offensively around the nails is pushed back by orange wood sticks first dipped in lem on juice And as for the teeth no more effective cleanser or purer mouth wash can be found than a half dozen drops of lemon juice in a wineglass ofwaterAfter washing the hands lemon juice and water make a splendid bleach butjust here let me call your attention to a curious thing Lemon jakapwodarkens the skin sndQ Dot make mistake of rubbing in plain lemon juice instead of diluting it with water Lemon juice and glycerin are good for chapped hands If you have a hcar3e voice in the morning lemon juice squeezed into soft sugar till it is like a sirup and a few drops of glycerin added relieves the hoarseness at once while a cold in the chest or consumption itself finds a formidable enemy in the following prescription Squeeze the juice of three lemons over three whole eggs shell and all In two or three days time the hull will lave softened because of the effect of the lemons acid on the line composition of the shell Then add a pint of rum and a pound of pulverised brown sugar can dy You can bottle this and take a spoonful every morning upon rising It is simply wonderful as a tonic Slapping the face is the latest in vention of the beauty doctor and it is said to be extremely good for the complexion It is nota very pleas ant process but it is supposed to be stimulating to the nerves The face specialist applies the same treatment under the chiu for hat that feature should ever show signs of becoming doubleA remedy for freckles is in demand now A good one is to mix well together one ounce of elder flow er ointment and twenty grains of sul phate of zinc rub this into the skin at night and wash in the morning with a little soap and warm water af ter which apply a lotion made of rose water and thirty grains of citric acid This is said to be efficacious and harm lessThe juice of the pineapple is an ac tive digestive agent A little of the fruit taken at the end of a meal is a valuable preventive of dyspepsia A simple method of softening hard water for the toilet is to throw orange peel into the bath or jug Not only will the peel have a good influence on the skin but it will perfume the water deliciously Mexicos New Coinage The opening of the year witnessed the Inauguration of the 32 to i ratio I in the Philippine islands and in Mexico und this with a better demand from India for current use accounts for the rise in the silver quotation since December 31 In Mexico a monetary plan in accordance with the agreed ratio was prepared by the fifth subcommittee of the national monetary commission The committee advises that in order to obtain stability or fixity of international exchange the government should he ndvisvd by a monetary commission to adopt a monetary sys tem based on the gold standard The committee dtes not recconnnend the immediate adoption of the gold stand ard but rather creating a ay stem very j similar to that which the United States government tins put in opera I tion in the Philippines The broad features of the plan are us follows 1 New dollars are to be coined and introduced into circulation with out impairing the practical mainte nance of their parity with gold at a ratio that may he adopted The gov ernment is to close the mints to the p w titi + free coinage of silver dollars andTe importation of the present pesos is to be prohibited 2 It is recommended that the ra tio of the new dollar to gold shall be established on the basis of the aver age gold price of the Mexican pesos in the foreign markets during the past ten years with an increase not exceeding 10 per cent 3 Gold coinage is to be suspended until such time as the silver dollar shall have attained a parity with gold and when the circulation of gold coins will not in the opinion of the gov ernment impair the maintenance of that parity 4 The new dollars for a specified time are to be exchanged for pesos at par 5 A reserve fund in either gold or silver is to be created and maintained either In the republic or abroad It the gold price of silver in foreign markets shall ris so that silver dollars shall come to possess a value equal or greater than ascribed to them by the legal ratio adopted steps will be taken to demonetize the silver dollars and to introduce a gold stand ard with free coinage and the use of the yellow metal as the medium of circulationAs holders of Mexican bonds and shares in London Paris and Ber lin have approved the new monetary scheme agreeing to advance any gold its execution may require its success of the fame is expected Ex Brutally Tortured A case came to light that for

raputation not second even to the celebrated American hog She has in fact become one of the wonders of the world As a wealth producer she ranks with Aladins lamp and the Kimberly Diamond mines with this improvement over either that what she produces is good to fat A summary from the statistical reports as to what this wonderful fowl can do and has done males mighty interesting readingHer output is greater in value than all the output of the mines of gold and silver in this bully country and you may also throw in the the product of the copper mines by way ol good measure and still the hen has the whole agregation beat to a frazzle There are 25 ooo00u chick ens in the country The value of the poultry sold in the markets during the year was 136000000 and the value of the eggs harvested was 144 000000 making a total of 280000 000 to he credited to the hen The value for 192 exceeded the total value of the exports during nil the years down to and including 1900 The value of all the wool produced in the United States last year was only onethird the value of the out put of the American hen The value of the wheat crop of 28 states added together was not as great as the value of the eggs and poultry sold in a sin I h gle year If the eggs produced in a single year by the American hen were loaded on one train of cars the caboose would be 900 miles to the rear of the engine If all the joyous cackled an nouncing the layin of the untold millions of eggs were compressed into a sivgle cackle of triumphant joy the volume of sound would make the thunder of Niagara seem by com parison

have a part The custom was first observed on January 2y 1903 with the greatest unanimity throughout the country and by Americans allover the world It is a simple inexpensive act full oi patriotic sentiment All through Mr McKinleys life both public and prl vate there ran a distinct vein of sen timent and a memorial of this sort i is therefore appropriate to him The custom will undoubtedly be observed the coming 29th of January more universally ii that is possible than on the initial day a year ago Interest in the memorial has increas ecTwoniJeffuHy during thepaTfyeari Iand Mr Lewis G Reynolds of Day ton Ohio who suggested the idea has received letters ol the most unqualified approval from Americans everywhere No expectation ib had of giving the movement the importance of local or

play and while he was thus made helpless chloroformed him and threwhim in sensible into a river where he It is not easy to imagine a case in which the comdemned could be more destitute of claim for syspathy or clemency Yet a movement has al ready begun to save the woman from the gallows and it is not at all improbable that the legislature which in Vermont alone has the pardoning power will vote to spare lifeWhy Largely because she is a woman Everywhere In the United States a special horror is shown when a wo map sentenced to die for her crime But behind this chivalry there is a steady going sentiment hostile to punishment regardless of the sex of the criminal There is a con- tantly strengthening feeling that by substituting life imprisonment for the and chalrreocijety could protect self

profoundest philoso of alt sties dIfthe matter of the universe Is not Indeed eternal I do not known when it was created for it is unthinkable that God exeisted amid an Infinite voidI not know whether space is fie nice or infinite though one proposi eLion or the other must be true my mind can grasp the idea of neither- I do not know what controls the movements of the heavenly bodies It does not enlighten me if you ex plain that it is a force called gravity for you have only explained an un known by an unknow since I do not know what gravity is I do not know what sensible mani festations distinguish the soul from mind of man So many attributes of man and the brute are identical that I am forced to conclude the brute also has a soul though I do not know whether it is immortal- I do not know how from a common parentage races of people differing so radically in structure color intelli gence etc have descended though I draw some conclusions from com paring a typical backwoodsman with a knightly gentleman I do not know why some men dwell in palaces while other men abide in hovels I indeed know hasainduss trious efforts go punished rather than rewarded and seen careless industry crowned That such things are gov erned by an intelligent law I do not doubt but I do not know its parts perhaps that is why I lack a crown- I do not know why the genius and the imbecile are not of a common Intellect since they are often children of a common ancestry and are some times nourished at the same breast- I do not know how the males and arerproduced In nearly equal numbers nor do I know

know why men with equal knowledge ot facts and equal powers to think arrive at different conclu sions If the factor of equality be ad humansknowledge follows I do not know why the law of sym pathy does not universally obtain among men since it forms the bond of social union and measures the hap piness of the race There are perhaps a few other things I do not know which I shall not index here
