FINANCIAL ARTICLE NO. .
do vc talk so much of the excel
lent securities upon which our loans
are made? This is a question we
are very glad to answer. There is
not a man, no matter what his
station, condition, nationality or
position,, who has not felt at sonic
time in his life that little feeling
which makes his "heart come up
in his throat, or, like the proverhial
soldier's, go down into the toe of
his hoot," when he has thought of
home at different times in his ca
reer. This is called home-sickness."
The home is the safeguard of the
nation, the citadel of man; child
hood's happy dreams and first ideas
of life are formed there. It is the
woman's supreme kingdom over
which she is queen. It is the har
binger of happiness and the mak
ing of better men and women, es
pecially when it is owned by them.
In the United States only one-
forth of the entire population own
their homes, but a great portion of
the other three-fourths are making
giant strides toward that end since
the inception and particularly since
the popular movement in the last
ten years among the building as
sociation or co-operative people's
Homes makes the man a better
citizen and a better father, provides
the boy and girl with good surround
ings, and the wife is-happier if she
knows the home is or will some
day be hers.
If we look back to the stubborn
fights in the various wars of the
past, we will find that at stake was
home and family and the cause of
right (of course, both parties are
sure of that); but we will find from
the birth of the world down today
that the most stubborn battles have
been fought from one standpoint,
protection of home.
Don't you think, dear reader,
that a man would fight just as hard
to keep his home from being sold
over his head? It is a different
battle from the other and only
needs a little care, for ninety-nine
out of a hundred to have a little
competency or a home by using the
methods offered through the popu
lar building and loan associations,
or co-opertive people's banks.
Now you can see that this is the
first essence of our security. An
other: the fact that as each month
goes by and a man finds himself
nearer the ownership of his home, it
gives him sufficient interest in his
property to keep up until he is
You, in placing your money
with the Phoenix (while we will
say frankly that we are not' operat
ing for philanthropy) are placing a
means for some one, if not your
self, to get a home. Aside from
that, do you not consider that if
you would place, say, $12 per
month and knew that that $12 paid
was loaned on first mortgage im
proved city real estate worth $24
(in several hundred different lo
calities) on some man's home, and
that same man was paying back an
average of about i-8o or 1-90 of
your $12 with, interest upon the
same (which would be immediately
loaned to some one else and repaid
by him under the same conditions)
would you consider your money
was safer than if placed upon some
speculative proposition, or where it
was not earning you anything, or
possibly has never been placed at
all from the fact that you never
Below are matters for your re
flection: WHAT IS HOME?
1. Home A world of strife shut
out; a world of love shut in.
2. Home The place where the
great are small and the small ijre
3. Home The father's kingdom,
the child's paradise and the moth
4. Home The place where we
grumble the most and are treated
5. Home The centerof affection,
around which our heart's best
6. Home A place where our
stomachs get three square meals
daily, and our hearts a thousand.
7. Home The only place on
earth where the faults and failings
of humanity are hidden undr the
sweet mantle of charity.

this subject but, your money if
placed with us goes on people's
homes and this company is man

Britain's protest against the per

to four unarmored Russian torpedo
boat destroyers to pass through the
Dardanelles into the Black Sea, un
der the commercial flag ot Russia,
will, it is believed, be followed by
similar action on the part of Austria-Hungary

Germany and France will remain

consonance with her traditional
policy not to embarrass the Porte,

.Strange Fact in Melting.
The statement that a solid like
iron or steel always melts from the
inside, the outside being the last to
be converted into a liquid state,
will seem, no doubt, to many ludi
crous. It is clearly demonstrated
in the manufacture of tool or cruci
ble steel, says the Baltimore Sun.
As to the cause, all iron or steel
bars, plates, etc., have a trace of
oxide upon the surface, which is
formed during the period of- cool
ing, after the rolling or hammering
or from moisture of some kind.
When the charge is placed in the
furnace an intense heat comes in
contact with the iron or steel, and
more oxide forms upon the outside ,
of each piece of steel or iron, and,
being aided by the oxide originally
upon it, a difficult fusible shell is
formed. There being no possible
manner by which the center of the
iron or steel can become oxidized
to the same degree, its melting
point is therefore not raised and it
naturally melts long before the outside.
