effect not only for tho good of tho
peoplo of tho ward, but for tho rest ot

thoy thought their balanco wns. It
thoy had no records ot their own avail
able, wo took their estimates and
credited their accounts accordingly.
A romnrkablo thing about tho wholo

Chicago than tho Merchants' Loan &
Trust Company. With old Chlcagoans
it is a sort ot cherished heritage; an
Institution that Is part nnd parcel of
nil that is stablo In tho community.
In brief, tho Merchants Is a synonym
for safety and trustworthiness, which
