PAVING TELLERS' ERRORS.
Those Official* Are I'Huallf Ready to
A bank officer, referring in a recent
address to the responsibility of paying
tellers, declares that the idea that such
officials were rarely willing to rectify
mistakes had little basis in fact. He
added: "How Is it that there exists in
the minds of many the idea that pay-
lng tellers are inclined to resent even
the suggestion that they make error*
In counting money? I have never
known one >vho made the slightest
claim to infallibility. Who has not
heard the ancient and oft told story of
a teller who was asked by a person for
Whom he has cashed a check If he had
Dot made a mistake? As the narrative
usually runs the self satisfied money
counter behind the desk is Inclined to
become Indignant and replies in a
pompous and abrupt manner that he
never makes mistakes. The consider-
ate party then states that the amount
paid him exceeded that named iu the
check, but the teller sUll maintains
that there can be no error either way,
as he never makes mistakes.
"Where is the teller who upon being
told he had made an error would fail
to politely inquire as to the nature of
the same? The inference is that tell-
ers are possessed of so much vanity
and conceit that they lose the amount
said to be overpaid rather than ac-
knowledge an error. How unlikely
and ridiculous!"—New York Post.

Von Llebig was skillful in correcting
popular delusions on scientific subjects.
A notable example of this may be
found In the overthrow of the once
much discussed theory of "spontane-
ous combustion," a comparatively mod-
ern error, dating, It seems, only from
the year 1725, but which persisted long
after Lavoisier had explained the real
nature of fire, which was from time to
time put forward with success In the
defense of persons on trial for murder
and received Its last support from
Charles Dickens. His success in this
direction throws a pleasant light on
the progress of civilization. One won-
ders what would have been the fate of
Yon Liebig had he opposed himself to
such an error in the sixteenth century
when Kepler could only save his moth-
er from going to the stake for witch-
Craft by satisfying her judges that she
possessed none of the signs essential
to a witch. In those days Kepler did
not dare to say that there were no
such things as witches.—W. A. Shen
atone In Cornhill Magazine.
