The Way Mllllone on Mil Hone of Dollar. In Check. Change Holder. In a  Few Minutea In the Dally Balancing  of Aeeounte Between Banks.  "Clearing!" That word U th* orde*  (or the shuffling of many feet and the  puttering ef thick envelopes upon bard  wood. Men with leather bags hong  ���������gainst their cheats like bass, drama  pass up and down-rows of desks at  which other men sit and as they go by  deftly hand put brown paper packages,  containing the equivalent of millions In  gold. Thus do the banks of New SoA  transfer money ouch business day.  As vast us the figures Involved tn tbe  operation are, they do not make an  impress upon the wind. One Is more  apt to wonder whether the gray hatred'  messenger In the blue serge suit would  succeed In disorganizing the line lf he  gu*ve the wrong envelope to bank No.  49 and, If eo, whether he would be condemned forever by his associates. But  no one seems to uiuko a mistake, and  the visitor has no reason to worry  about tho possibility of misplacing $28,-  000,000 even for half a second. Tbe  machinery of tbe clearing houso ls almost too perfect to slip a cog.  The clearing house begins to show  signs of activity as early as 9:30 o'clock,  when the vanguard of bunk runners  makes Its appearance. They travel la  , pairs and are mostly young men, although the veterans have not all retired. Their badge of oflice ls a bag,  any sort of bag, suit case, telescope,  kit bag. canvas bag. Sometimes lt has  the name of the bank It came from  printed across the end. More ofteri-it  bears no distinguishing mark.  Further, its identity is frequently  "hldden'behimnn"exceedingly shabhy  exterior. That Is perhaps a virtue. At  all events, It ls not considered good  form ln banking circles to be ostentatious. A strong bag even though lt bo  old and chafed is Just as good a vehicle  for a fortune as a new ono und is less  likely to produce burnings In the heart  of ii thug. So this ls tbo reason why  the youug men who sweep up the mar.  ble stairs look as if they were carrying  bags tilled with their owu clothing ln-  Ptoud of other persona' checks. Self  conscious tliey are not despite the loads,  thoy carry, and one might well imagine  they were going upstairs to change  their garments for gymnuslmn suits.. -  *^f when "this" visitor loaches the door  -jabovo und climbs to the. littlo gallery  nf one'end he reallxos that not basket  b(ill, but another game, la to be played.  Already the players aro preparing to  tuko their positions, At tbo side walls  nro benches on which delivery clerks  mv sitting, their bugs at thoir sides,  nnd opposite Ih a solid coimtor divided  Into ubout soventeon eoinpartinonts, to  tho front of which are ufllxed, lf occupied, tho uamo plates of different  banks.

Porty-flvo minutes is the limit allowed for making the exchanges and proving tbe balances, and fines may be imposed If the allotted 'time Is exceeded.  But It Is rarely. n<jcessnry to impose,  fines, so rapid is the work of .the messengers and eo simple .the system of  exchange. Most of the' Work is done  before the messengers got to the clearing house. The checks for exchange  with other bauks are Inclosed in separate envelopes, and these, envelopes  are arranged In consecutive order In  the delivery clerk's bag. so all needless  delay lu depositing tbem Is eliminated  ^To ijuike tho clearing finally'complete  It is of course necefisary to exchange  the cash, "iyiwordingly," says James  G.

On tbe opening bight the actor who took the part  of Lord* Norfolk failed to show up.  Booth was'in despair. -At last some  one suggested that young Kimball  knew tbo lines of that part, and ho  was cast for it by Booth."l ?'  Of. tho .ev$st Kimball himself said:  "When''I went on tbe stage, I wai  badly-.rattled. Booth was imperious  ���������dd stern, which only complicated matters. However, i got along sit right  until we came to the battle of Bo������  worth. Fiold. In my hurry I bad taken the wrong place on the stage, when  Booth hissed out in a whisper, 'Get  tntp your place.' Then wheeling  around he pronounced these words Itt,  thrilling tones:''What thickest tbou  how,' noble Norfolk? Tbat we shall  conquer, my lord,' was my reply, 'but  on my .tent tbls morning early was  this paper found.' Booth was marking oat .tbo plan .of bottle oo tbe sand.

Booth then  repeated tbe words:  !''What thlokost thou. Norfolk. If tho  pardon was offered?*  "By this time I was completely rattled and forgot my lines. Booth stored  glaring'at me like a tiger.
