HE PROBLEM SOLVED!
MONEY-MAKING REDUCED TO AN EXACT
COME AND JOIN US.
ALL OTHERS ARE GUESSES.
' You will probably ask: How can the MUTUAL
INVESTMENT ASSOCIATION OF BALTI
MORE CITY redeem their bonds at such large
figures on such small payments r
'J ho answer is plain: 'ihe experience of as
sociations otllke character in England and the
United btates establishes the feasibility ot pay.
Ing l,000 at the endot seven years' monthly
Now, then, not nno of tho many assoclitlons
heretofore organized receives from Its members
as much money within that time as ours will
hare received. Consequently It Is very easy to
understand that no difficulty can possibly occur
to prercut the redemption ot our bonds.
lor example: Our Association will collect
3Stl In monthly Installments, If It were possi
ble for bonds to run that time; whereAS the
"American Legion ot Honor" Association col
lects only $t35; the "Homo Circle" of Boston,
$W; tho "Ancient Order of United Working
men."!. It Is quite evident, therefore, why our Asso
ciation provides for nn EARLIER REDEMP
TION than seven jenrs at figures depending
upon the time the bond has been running.
It requires hut a moment's thought to see
that. If the various Insurance societies can and
do pay death benefits from f l.ouo to 3,000 on
average assessments for less in amount than
ours, It is not only possible, but an actnal fact,
for our Association to redeem their hondi at
the exact figures adtertlsed, and thus give pur
chasers benefits far beyond those ever offered
by any other association in the land.
Every other association, whether life In
surance or on any other system, such, fur ex
ample, os the "Equltablo League," tho "Order
of'i'ontl" nnd "Iron Hall," would nctuallv
cease to exist If new members vvero not ob
tained. To prove to j on the vitality and equity of tho
plan of our Association, It Is sufilcienl tosav
that sinro our orgunlmtlon no less than fo'ir ot
tho associations uf this city have found It Ju
dicious and necessary to completely revise
their original plans of payment and to Imitate
our system of redemption ot bonds at low but
Our Association has been universally recog
nized as established ou the safest basis ever
presented to tho public.
Tho Directors take the heaviest burden.
Every effort, by prudent management an 1 un
ceasing vigilance, will bo exerted tosecurothe
Interests of tho bondholders and to promote
tho onward progress of the Association,

Pecretary Proctor has undertaken the
dlftlcult task of mincing the number of
desertions among tho private) soldiers of
the) Army. Ills plan, which has been In
operation for several months, is n mixture
ui kindness und severity, and tho results
so'lur attained Kilnt to it jis an Improve
ment over the former system. In the first
place, ho has endeavored to improve tho
surroundings of the soldier, to mtikohls
dally life more pleasant In caliip and post,
and to provide for his moral elevation,
The "canteen" is an Important factor in
this plan and has worked well. Having
done this, he to-duy directed that double
tho present reward for tho urrest of de
serters be offered and everv effort bo
made to punish deserters. Tho present
standing reward of WO er head has been
Increased to $00. This reward will be paid
for tho arrest of any soldier who deserted
subsequent to December 31, 183.1. Tho
Increased standing reward for deserters
will, it Is thought, deter soldiers from
deserting and stimulate civil otllcers in
arresting offenders. "In this connection
an order was also issued to-day directing
department commanders to report Sep
tember 1 annually tho number of deser
tions which have occurred within their
commands during tho year, with nn
expression of their views as to tho
causes and measures which should
ba taken to prevent their rccurr
rciice. Secretary Proctor has shown much
Interest In behalf of the common soldier,
and tho Army orders Issued dally, con
tain commutation of sentences by court
martinis of soldiers who, in his opinion,
havo received too severe sentences, lly
combining kindness and strict obedienco
to military discipline, together with thu
increased reward for deserters, ho hopes,
and as far as results show, with good rea
son, to reduce flic number of desertions
among Ihe common soldiers of the Army
id a minimum.
