coming "Blfrnaturo exports," tho occas
ion being tho lato " Tnylor-Wlll Caso,"
which turned In a groat measuro on tho
genuineness of tho testator's signature-
Jloro than twenty years ago, In Cin
cinnati, I copied tho Declaration of In
dependence, appending fao timtka of
tho signers' names. Mr. Thomas Stov
ons, nt tho saino tlino editor of tho Cin
cinnati Alias, took occasion, In n pleas
ant way, to doubt my awcrtlon that I
had copied tho signatures with a pon,
To convltico lilm, I asked htm to sign
his namo on a sheet of paper, which ho
did. I Immediately wroto ten copies of
Ills signaturo abovo and below tho orig
inal and handed him thopapcr to select
his own. After a careful examination
ho selected ono as his own. IIo was
wrong. IIo tried agiln and again, with
tlio samo result, and finally, by mcro
guess work, he hit tho right ono. And
it was a remarkablo fact that after lio
had really discovered his own, ho could
sco tho most astonishing absurdities In
all tlio others.
Soino six years ago, I was speaking
with a well-known publisher of tills
city, who sat at his desk signing domo
checks that tho book-keeper had pro
pared for him. Tho signaturo was of
tho firm, and was a peculiar ono, as ho
wroto it. I casually remarked that it
was an elegant signaturo for a forger.
1 lu promptly responded that thcro was
no forger that could sign that namo so
ns to decelvo him.
' Oh, yes, thcro Is,1' said I.
"Wliero is ho'."'
" lleroho is, standing at your elbow."
Da you mean tosajv'eald he, "that
you can imitate that Mgnattiro bo that
I cannot detect the forgery'"'
" I mean to say," fald I, " thnt 1
