WORN BY PASSING COINS.
Aa Object Treason Offered by Ticket
"Talk about money burning holes In
people's pockets," remarked an ob
servant stranger the other day, "but
here la a case of nickels burning holes
In wood." He poluted to the front of
the ticket seller's window on one of
the L stations as he spoke. The wood
work was scooped out several inches
deep where the intended passenger
usually shoves in his fare, and the cav
ity was twice as wide as It was deep.-
"That," said the observant man, "is a
more graphic Illustration of what con
stancy will do than all the lessons ever
taught by the dripping of water upon
rocks. They used to tell us in school
that a drop of water would wear away
the greatest stone, but here we have a
mute picture of what the constant shov
ing of coins In and out of that ticket
seller's window has done. You will
notice that the wood is worn out as
smoothly and evenly as if It were done
by the finest kind of tools in the hands
of the finest kind of a carpenter. There
Isn't the faintest suspicion of a splinter
there. Millions of nickels and dimes
must have passed and repassed through
that window and been shoved along
that hardwood board, which was orig
inally level and flat as a street of as
phalt, until they wore that cavity
which you now see there.
I do not know that there is any par
ticular way of shoving the money be
tween ticket seller and purchaser, but
there must be, because the cavity Is
shaped like an elongated saucer, dem
onstrating beyond any doubt that there
must be a universal way for moving the
coins back and forward. I have trav
eled a good deal, but nowhere have I
seen such a thorough object lesson as
the hollow of that board affords. To
make a cavity like that the exchange
of coin must have been simply enor
mous and beyond the imagination of
man to conceive. It Is one of the great
est curiosities of the city. I doubt that
it has an equal in the world. .This Is
the fifth or sixth window sill on the Ll
that I have noticed worn away by
coins In this way. At 42d, 33d, 23d and
14th street, on the 6th avenue road, the
cashiers' window ledges are especially
well worn away by the passing of coin.
