'AND AVHO AVOULiDN'T?"
Dnngoi'h That Pretty American Girls Have
to Face in Mexico.
Baron Strauss said the American women
were so popular In Mexico that they inter
fered with the wheels of justice in that repub
lic. "The American women," he said to a re
porter, "go about Mexico as they would in
thi6 country, while the Mexican women are
caged up like birds. The only way to make
love to them is to staud off some hundred
yards and stare.
"The pretty senorlta sits In her open win

one chance In one hundred of getting an op
portunity to 6peuk to one while she is in
church, but that Is the only place.
"Last summer a New York merchant and
bis beautiful daughter stopped for a few days
In the little town where I was sojourning.
The young lady was one of the handsomest

"Well, you can imagine what a stir she
created among the young Mexicans, who are
held to far away from the native women. The
son of a wealthy planter used to stand for
hours opposite the window of this American
girl. One day the father went to the City of
Mexico, leaving the daughter unattended for
a few hours. The young lady walked to the
hotel from the station and wus iollowed by
the Mexican admirer. As 6ho wub nearly
home the young fellow rushed up to her and
implanting a kiss upon her forehead ran away
for dear life.
"When the father came homo there was a
little excitement. He had the young fellow
arrested and the next day he was brought bo
fore the judge, who gravely asked what the

For the Poor Rather Than the Rich.
Hanks should be a place where the unused monoy of the people can bo safely kept and
under safe rules of 1)0811108, loaned to those who want it for legitimate use. Among these
should ho classified, as of first impoitance, time loans to develop the industrits aud pioductlvo
enterprises of a community.
No system of call loans, or thirty or ninety day loans, can develop the n sources of a
country. Such loans can only ho used In speculation, and to a llmlleil extent. In 'establishing
retail buslncs". Speculative enterprise should rarely iceeivo loans from depositors.
Tlio bunks of the United Stati s, not only to-day, hut for a long time past, havo been
powerless to carry tho time business of the nation, and nothing but the cool, level headed senso
of the Ametlcan people prevents a run upon these banks to-day. If It gets started, what will
bo the result ?
The Industrial Ilauklng and Investment Association has been formed with a vlowto meet
this case. It Issues time certificates, hearing a fixed Interest, with an additional share In all
profits above such fixed Interest. Tho ordinary savings bunks are sufe, but tho luteicst they
give is inisciably Inadequate to the needs of tho poor. Uulldlng and loan soclctli 8 are tolerably
safe, but arc not of much use to tho masses constantly moving about. What seems to bo re
quired Is Eonii thing that will give ordinary commercial profits icgardlcss of residence or con
tinuous subscription, or anything bejoud a worklngman's control, not forfeitable, and with a
minimum of commercial risks.
Tho guaranteed interest-bearing certificates of tho Industrial Ranking and Invostmcut As
sociation are designed to meet this case.
By this arrangement labor will share the profits of capital and will be inttiested in busi
ness with all the advantages of tin n with largo means and many properties.
To enable tho wage-earning classes to take an Interest in such business Is tho most perfect
solution of tho labor question that has over been proposed. It, is industrial partnership and co
operation ou the broadest lines ond with tho most, perfect security.
Six per ceut. interest paid to depositors ou time deposits Is safer for thebaukand depositor
Owing to tho reserve necessary to be held by banks loaning call deposits, it necessitates
their ohtafulngloaus, paying higher rates of Interest, with a consequent Increased risk. Time de
deposits ami time loans are the only true principles of bankiug aud safe medium for mouoy
making by depositor and borrower alike.
Under Its charter the Industrial Bauklng and Investment Association will
Pay interest upon deposits of any amount.
Issue certificates of deposit.
Issue certified check-books for tho convenience of those traveling.
Loan money on real estate.
Act as trustee for individuals aud organizations.
