Now compare the Amberola "with a player-piano. Anyone can
operate a player-piano, but when all is said and done, it gives you

ment of this sort in the west are re
corded, where union among the banks
has restricted the cut-throat competi
tion which in other cases has led to un
warranted payments of interest on
small and active deposit accounts. Pro
tection td the community from .the ef
fects of bad banking Is one of the ob
jects attained, according to Mr. Cannon,
and the significant statement is made
that "as money rates decrease losses
from bad debts must be .brought to a
minimum, and the question of a central
agency, which shall disseminate inform
ation regarding paper outstanding
among the banks, must and will receive
tha attention it deserves."

It is significant of the widening scope

The Clearing: House Association of Chi
cago was the pioneer In the establish
ment of an Independent system of exam
inations in this country. Its system was
inaugurated on June 1, 1906, with re
sults that have more than fulfilled ex
pectations. The Chicago examiner
operates under the following conditions:
The examinations extend to all the asso
ciated banks of Chicago and to all non
member institutions. The work is con
ducted with the aid of five regular
assistants, each fitted by experience to
thoroughly do that part of the work
assigned to him. The examinations In
clude, besides a verification of the
assets and liabilities of each bank, so
far as Is possible, an investigation into
the workings of every department and
are made as thorough as is practicable.
Directors Kept Advised.
After each examination' the examiner
prepares a detailed report in duplicate,
describing the bank's loans, bonds, in
vestments, and other assets, mention
ing specially all loans, either direct or
indirect, to officers, rectors, or em
ployes, or to corporations In which they
may be Interested. The report also con
tains a description of conditions found
in everydepartment. One of these re
ports Is filed in the vaults of the clear
ing house, in the custody of the exam
iner, and the other is handed to the ex
amined banl?s president for the use of
The Individual directors are then noti
fied that the examination has been made
and that a copy of the examiner's re
port has been handed to the president
for their use. In this way every direc
tor is given an opportunity to see the
report, and the examiner, in every in
stance, insists upon receiving acknowl
edgement of the receipt of these notices.
The detailed report retained by the
examiner is not submitted to the clearing-house
committee, under whose di
rect supervision he operates, unless the
discovery of unusual conditions makes
It necessary. A special report in brief
form is prepared in every case and read
to tho clearing-house committee at
meetings called for that purpose. The
report is made In letter form, and des
cribes In general terms the character of
the examined bank's assets, points out
all loans, direct or Indirect, to officers,
directors, or employes, or to corpora
tions in which they may have an in
terest. Other Associations Follow.
The example of Chicago was followed
in less than a year by the Clearing
House association of Minneapolis and
later by the banks of St. Paul, St. Louis,
Kansas City. St. Joseph and Philadel
phia. The methods differ somewhat In
different cities, but are directed to the
same result of a more rigorous examina
tion of assets and methods than are
assumed by the national bank examin
ers under tho federal law.
In dealing with the panic of 1907, Mr
Cannon points out that, beginning with
1860, the Issues of clearing house certi
ficates at New York alone, have amount
ed to the enormous aggregate of $269,
839,000, all of which have been redeemed
without the loss of a single dollar, and
at periods ranging frpm three to seven
months from the darts of the first Issue.
While no attempt is made to enter upon
an academic discussion of the causes of
the panic, the remark of a prominent
banker and economist Is quoted' to the
following effect: .,,x ,
"The' truth is that responsibility for
the panic of 1907 lies at the door of our
currency system. No other adequate
cause can be found. We do business
bv the modern system of bank credits,
but we have failed to supplement this
machinery with the means for readily
converting bank credit Into cash.

VOTE FOR MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP
AS THE OXLY SAFE SOLUTION.
rVe find that tlie only sure and safe
solution for all time of the problem
which confronts the city Is the Immedi
ate purchase of the water plant by the

tion that the people of this city should
take Immediate steps to consummate the
purchase of the present water plant and
that it should continue to conduct the

the fact that nt no time has the oppor

propitious for the purchase and success

is of such vital concern to every citizen.

avoid future complications." From the

nothing to do with tho destinies of men; nor the moon with the weather."
Rev. Henry Easter, Church of St. Clement.
"Thcro are always people who refuse to dance however sweet or solemn
the music may he; that 1 to say, It in Is impossible to please the whims of
all tho people about you." Rev. Charles L. Overstreet, First Presbyterian

from man or demon." Rev. O. S. McBrlde, from the pulpit of Cavalry Baptist
"Mothers, your lives spent like God Intended, are not Insignificant; they
are not and cannot be Isolated Irons universal significance for your boys shall
bear them Into tha great tide that never ebbs.' Rev. Caspar S. Wright, Trinity
"God Is not only a great king, hut la tender like a shepherd and IovIhr
liko a father; draw near ,to Him with trua repentence, dismiss your doubts and
fearn and He will teach you to lova Him and love His children." Dr. Samuel
Blair, from the pulpit of the First Methodist church.
"We should Indeed honor our mothers; they are the ones who have gone
to the gates of the grave to bring s Into the world, and they are the ones wh
have spent weary nights In patient watchfulness over us when wt were help
less infants; they are the ones who have watched with eagerest anticipation

ful of such a friend." Rev. James Perry Rice, First Christian church.
"Thera can he no Christian life without the spiritual Inbreathing; there can

terion for admission into the heavenly kingdom." Kenneth Brown, East El
Paso Presbyterian church.
"Many people inveigh against what they term emotional religion, hut we
should remember, however, that we enter the Kingdom of Heaven heart first,
rather than head first; not 'the clear in head,' hut 'the pure In heart shall see

erative force of action, and emotional religion is a mere makeshift unless the
daily life corresponds with the high profession." Rev. B. C. Preston, of the
First Congregational church, at Y. M. C. A.
It is true that man must get above himself and his environments in
order to see himself; no man is so big in his own estimation as the prize
fighter, who only sees himself from the brutal standpoint of a prize fighter;
mo man Is less in his own sight than ho who has climbed so high In his Chris
tian towe that he sees himself as God sees him, and, like Paul, cries out,
TJnto me, who am less than the least of all saints, Is this grace given.' " Rev.
Alfred J. McElwain, Houston Square Baptist church.

Lying just beneath, the outer covering or tissue-skin, is a sensitive mem
branous flesh, in -which axe imbedded thousands of small blood vessels; It is
through these tiny veins and arteries that nutriment is supplied from the blood
to the different pores, glands and lymphatics. Thus the skin is kept healthy,
and free from all eruption or disease, by pure blood. But vrhen impurities and
humors infect the circulation its nourishing properties are diminished and in
stead of supplying the skin with healthful properties it constantly irritates and
diseases the" delicate fibres, pores and glands with sharp uratic matter. Then the
skin tissues inflame, swell and ulcerate and some form of skin diseaso appears
on the surface. Applying soothing lotions, salves; etc, to the outer eruptions
does not purify the blood and therefore the skin trouble can not be cured in this
manner. S. S. S. cures all skin diseases by neutralizing the acids and removing
the jumors from the blood. It cools the acid-heated circulation, builds it up to
its normal strength and thickness, multiplies its rich, nutritious corpuscles, and
adds to its purity in every way. Then the skin, instead of being irritated and
infiaired by sour impurities is nourished, soothed and softened by this cooling,
healthy stream of blood. S. S. S. Cures Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum,
