A Building Association.
An effort is being made to organ
ize in this city a building association
with a capital stock of $100,000,
and about half the amount is already
subscribed. The object is to aidbeen
people of small capital to build
homes for themselves, or pay off
existing incumbrances upon their
homes, by the payment of small
amounts monthly. We have not
space at present to describe at
length the manner of working of as
sociations of this character, but an
experience of some thirty years in
the eastern cities proves them to be
truly benncial institutions.
The usual plan, and that contem
plated here, is to divide the capital
stock in $50 shares and limit the
amount to be taken by one individ
ual to one-twentieth of the whole
number. Upon each share a
monthly payment of 25 cents is ex
acted. As fast as the money is re
ceived it is to be loaned out, on
good real estate security, to mem
bers of the association. The loans
being made to the party bidding the
highest premium at each monthly
No member can borrow more
than the aggregate amount of stock
held by him, and he is required to
pay premium, interest and install
ments every month. An admittance
fee of 15 cents is also exacted.
The great advantage is that it en
ables people of limited means to
build homes by the payment of
small installments monthly, and as
they are sharers in the profits ac
cruing from interest, premiums,
fines, &c, they pay much less for
the use of the money borrowed,
than in the case of ordinary loans.
Another considerable advantage is
the facility afforded to those of limi
ted means for advantageous invest
ment of surplus money, if only
twenty-five cents per month.
We have known of a number of
instances where poor men have ac
quired comfortable homes for them
selves by means of building associa
tions, when they could not have
done so otherwise.' In one case
the party is now the owner of a
handsome brick residence worth at
least $2,000 which he paid for out
of rather meagre wages and mean
while supported a large family.
Those engaged in getting up this
association include some of our best
and most public spirited citizens.
The subscription lists are in the
hands of Messrs. J. M. Hodgman
and B. B. Herbert, who will fully
explain the matter to any one ap
plying to them.
—A most distressing case of hom
icide occurred a few days ago in
Minneapolis. One Kate Noonan,
whose parents live in Wright county,
but who had been employed as a
domestic in Minneapolis for several
years, shot and killed a young man
named W. H. Sidle, of that city.
The girl declares that Sidle made
her drunk and, while in that condi
tion, ruined her and since that
time has used her vilely. That the
killing was premeditated and that
she only regretted that she had
been prevented from killing herself.
Sidle was of respectable family, and
was employed in one of the Minnea
polis banks. The friends and ac
quaintances of Miss Noonan ex
press their belief that the girl has
partially crazy since her seduc
tion by Sidle.
—A correspondent writes a
lengthy and ingenious argument, to
prove that it is more likely that the
seven members of the high joint
commission, who voted on the Til
den side, are wrong, than that the
eight are who opposed them. We
have not room for the letter in full,
but here is the pith of it: "Is it
correct to presume that men gener
ally are honest Our correspon
dent decides this in the affirmative.
He then concludes that eight men
are moie likely to be honest and
right than seven. We agree with
him. The chances of his theory
being true are as 8 is to 7. This is
a mathematical demonstration and
will not admit of doubt.
—The New York Sun is very im
prudent. Being regarded as the es
pecial and authoritative mouthpiece
of Samuel J. Tilden, its constant
abuse of Gov. Hayes is certainly un
seemly. Since his nomination Gov.
Hayes seems to have kept himself
singularly free from censurable con
duct. He has neither done nor said
aught that a most inveterate enemy
could object to, yet the Sun persists
daily in speaking of him in the most
offensive terms, until even many of
the democratic papers of the coun
try feel called upon to rebuke it.
It does not help the cause of its
party by pursuing the course it does.
The Folly of It.
RID WING, Feb. 17th '77.
Mr. Editor:—I was glad to see in
the ADVANCB this week a well-timed
rebuke of the "Jenkinsism" of publish
ing a description of the ladies' dress
es worn at a reeent party. But there
is much more to find fault with in mat
ters of that sort than the writer of that
letter pointed out. Not only are such
notices offensive to every lady of refine
ment, but their influence on others can
only be injurious.
We all know that the spirit of rival
ry is very strong in humanity generally,
and that we are prone to strive to excel
in whatever elicits applause.
Already our inclination to worship
fine clothes is strong enough to do ahfriend
infinite deal of harm in the world. We
are likely to overlook our real necessi
ties oftentimes to gratify a foolish am
bition to dress better than our neigh
bors, and as the majority of us are un
able to command sufficient means to
vie with the few who are wealthy, it is
not seldom the case that great unhappi-
ness is caused by inability to gratifiy

existing incentives to unwise excesses
in this direction, is added the influence
of newspaper notoriety, this pride will

think we ought all to strive to attract

other qualities. Instead of being puf

strikes me that it would be far more
