profoundly stirred by the remark r.i
one of Dreyfus' friends that he "coal'

Dreyfus in the old days, with his Mti

Libre Parole: "I am not the only one
to perceive that the great and splendid
affair of humanity was nothing but a
dirty commercial and political deal fa-
cilitating for the Jews the conquest of
power and the cornering of markets."
Later on, in an interview M. Ibels re-
marked: "Among the Dreyfusards, as
we were called, there were honest per-
sons. such as Zoia. Labori. Clemenceau
Picquart, myself and others. Poor, lion-

CURIOUS BANK NOTES.
1 Collection Exhibited Before t!i«* Instl"
It ute of Hanker* at London.
On Aladdin's principle of giving new
! lam.'i.-j for old, Mr. Mo^erly Phillips, as
| an associate of the institute of bankers,
j is preparing at any time to gi <; new
! notes, or their- equivalent in gold, for
oid notes viiich have some interesting
history attached to them. Mr. Phil-
lips is the only collector of bank notes
in the country, and probably out of it,
and his collection amounts to S0O,
■'■ ore or less. Some of the more val-
uable of his specimens he exhibited re-
cently at a meeting of the institute of
bankers in the London institution.
One of the most interesting was a note
issued by Maj. Gen. Baden-Powell dur-
ing the siege of Mafeking. It is num-
bered 7GC, dated March, l'JOO, and
printed in green ink on an obviously
primitive machine. Another, with, if
possible, a more fascinating history,
was a currency note, with Arabic let-
tering. printed by Gen Gordon when he
was besieged in Khartoum. Of the

peril over. How we have had to pay foi
our independence of character and dis
interestedness. I have seen Labori cr;<
and not so long ago. He shed tears in
telling me how he suffered, and how
heartbroken he was. Col Picquart alsc
is heartbroken. He will have a lot to
say. He remains on one side, sacrificed
like us. Zola has lost his cross, Pic-

"My dear," said Mr. Henry Peck or
Christmas morning, "this is a lovely
smoking jacket you have given me.
And the picture on the box of cigars
is very pretty."
"Glad they please you," repJied Mrs.
"I just wondered," continued Mr.
Pec!:, nerving himself to the first great
rebellion of his life, "whether these
cigars were made of the same material
as the jacket."
Here he retired in good order, leav-
ing Mrs. Peck in speechless wonder-

not unlike in appearance the Scotch 20
shilling notes of the present day. In
times of emergency, when coin was
scarce, paper money of as low a value
as 5s was Issued by traders. But there
has been a lower depth even than this,
cards and paper tickets having been
resorted to in some places for as small
a sum as Is. Another interesting spe-
cial issue, shown by Mr. Phillips, was
that of the Birmingham workhouse.
These notes were circulated by Hie
overseers for various small amounts,
"for the convenience of paying the
poor," and payment was made when
eight 2s 6d or four 5s notes were
brought together. In one corner of
one of these notes is a picture of Char-
ity nursing young children. As show-
ing the length of time during which
notes may remain in currency, Mr.
Phillips mentioned that lie had a
Scotch note for £1.2, dated '""1. and
that the bank which issued It offered to
•change it. for him. Being a collector,
Mr. Phillips preferred to keep his an-
cient bit of paper. In the matter of
diminutive bank notes a correspond-
ent sends an account of a curious note
which he has in his possession. It is
a card measuring 2 bv 21/2 inches, on
one side of which is twice printed the
word "twopence," while on the other
side the sum is printed in words and
figures around the border. In the mid-
die is the following: "I prom'se to
pay the bearer on demand, twopence.
