METHODS OF MARKING MONEY
Officiahi Trap Peculator Who Dir.
Nefariously Into the Cash
In fhelr surveillance and, apprehen
sion of suspected persnns government
secret officers often nd It necessar
to "mnrk the money" handled by suck
persons. There are various methods
of so marking the national currency,
one of tbe most novel of which Is tbe
The note to be narked is, say, the
$5 silver certificate bearing tbe vig
nette of an Indian chief In Tun re
galia of feathers and trappings and
presenting a full-face view. Wifk tbe
old of a pin tbe secret service man
makes two punctures in the bill di
rectly in the .pupils of the Iwdlan't
eyes. To the casual and sometimes
even critical inspector of the note
these pin-prteks are invisible. If
raised to the Ught, however, the bill
will distinctly reveal them.
The markings are complicated by
the following process : The pinpoint is
applied in the "twist" of the large
figure 5 of the two upper corners f
the note. These tiny twists do not
appear on the "necks" of the two fig
ures 5 that are on both sides of the
bottom of the note. The note Is now
pierced again, this time at the ends
of the scrolls on each side of the
word "five" in the lower center of the
MIL. The marking Is now complete.
In secret It is exhibited to one or more
persons for purposes of identification
and is then placed In the till or money
drawer to which the suspected person

main perfect for some time. When
such bills are produced In court and
their markings are explained under
