"RAISED" MONEY IN
t Dallas News.)
Five-dollar bills that have been
skillfully raised to the denomination
of $20 are being circulated In Texas
towns. A number of them were pre-
sented some time ago to merchants
01 Gainesville and the fact that their
value had been raised was not de-
tected until the money had been plac-
ed in the local banks. Then a number
of bills were passed at Waco, and
now the latest report is that some
hare been found in Fort Worth.
The presentation of the raised mon
ey is now expected In almoat any
Texas town at any time.
The raising of the value of the bills
is accomplished In this way: On
one side of a $20 bill there are at
the four corners a $20 mark. Two
ot these marka are deftly cut from
the bill and are deftly pasted on two
corners of a bill of lower denomina-
tion. The bill of the lower denmina-
tion is necessarily selected to be of
tbe same color of the $20 bill.
When both sides of the two bills
have been treated to the same pro-
cess the result is that the $20 bill
has numbers missing from some of
its corners . This is not likely to
arouse suspicion on the part of the
average citizen, who will think that,
the constant passing of the bill has
probably rubbed out some of the
On casual inspection the $5 bills
which has been raised to the value
of $20 appears to be Jpod currency,
and. like the Rood 120 bill, it apT
pears to have simply had a couple
numbers on either side effaced. But
something more than a cursory ex-
amination will show very evident de-
Tracings Do Not Correspond.
It will be seen that certain little
tracings which may be noted on any
bill do not correspond, and if the
numbers are not well pasted they may
easily be pulled off. The more one
studies a raised bill the more defec-
tive it appears. until one wonders
why he didn't recognise it immediate-
ly as a piece of bad currency. As a
matter of fact those who handle much
money do recognise raised bills with
out any trouble.
If a small bill has been raised to
the value of $20 or to any value
other than that for which it was
made the real value of the bill re-
mains as it was originally. If one
has been given a raised bill, which
has in good faith been presented to
a bank as a $20 bill, the bank, just
as the United States Government,
will credit that person with the ori-
ginal value of the bill, whether that
original yalue be only $1 or $5. The
person who receives the bill is the
j loser. If one receives a mutilated
I $20 bill, from which numbers have
I been taken in raising the apparent
value of other bills, the bill retains
its original value, despite its mutil-
ation. and it will be received by any
bank for its face value.
Besides the numbers on corners,
the number spelled out In the lower
central part of every bill has to be
changed in raising a bill, and this
is accomplished by pasting on a num-
ber taken from a good bill, just as
is done with the corner numbers.

the situation and apply the proper
remedy. In other words, the situa-

J. P. BRIGHWELL, JR., OP
BET.mTS CITES INSTANCE
Mr. J. P. Brightwell, Jr., of Bel-
falls, one of the progressive, respect-
ed farmers in that section of the
county, called last night at The Tele-
gram office at the Instance of Tem-
ple men having the Interests of the
city at heart, and related the fol-
He brought* six bales of cotton to
this market yesterday, and the,best
of all offers received was 8.37 1-2
cents. He drove with the cotton to
Belton, and disposed of V at 8.75
cents to W. R, Miller, the purchaser.
This netted to him $1.95 per bale
more than he would have received
bad he sold his cotton here. In oth-
er words, he received in Belton
$273.43 for his coiton, the Temple
market price basis would have
amounted to $261.72; netting him
a total profit of $11.72 on the Belton
market as against the local market.
Replying to an inquiry, Mr. Bright-
well said he intends depositing the
proceeds from the sale in a Temple
bank today, arriving too late last
night for so doing. On the other
hand, said he, farmers from his sec-
tion of the county who have taken
their cotton thru Temple to Belton,
have deposited their funds in Belton
banks, this, in fact, seems to be
the rule. He cited that yesterday 26
bales passed thru Temple, without
even being "cut" here, indeed the
teams were not stopped in this city.
In addition to the foregoing, It
should be borne doubly well in mind,
that this is cotton raised and ginned
in tbe county East of Temple, in a
territory heretofore controlled by
this market, and logically should con
tinue to be. But a change In the or-
