MORTGAGES taken by The Detroit United Rank are payable In

month, together with the monthly Interest on the loan. In this way the
entire loan is paid off In 8 1-S yrars. The whole or any part fff the loan
may also ho repaid at the end of uny year. This system is of great ad
vantage to the borrower, as he makes his monthly payments without
feeling It to anywhere hear the extent he does under the old system of
paying the Interest only semi unnttally and letting the entire principal
remain unpaid,
The INTEREST on our loans, of course, becomes less from year to

CHRISTENING OF
DUKE TO BE II
RAREJEVENT
OU CHAULNES HEIR WILL BE BAP
TIZED IN HALLS OF HIS ANCES
TORS—LARGE CROWD INVITED
TO ATTEND.
*
By VANCE THOMPSON.
I’AlllS, Jan. 25.—The little Duke de
Chuulnub had his picture taken today
for the first time. Ho did not know
it, but the rest of the ducal family
knew that the portrait was being
taken.
There was not light enough in th 2
apartment ut No. 2s Avenue Hoche for
a snapshot, so the young ducal per
son, In white coal and cap, was car
ried down to the street iu the arms
of his pleblan nurse. The old con
cierge of the apartment house came
out to look on certain passers by made
up a li;tle crowd on the other sidewalk
and the photographer—Miss Roberta
Ruy, of Chicago, w ho is a sister of Mrs.
John Drake, whose husband is the
brother of Mrs. Shouts —snapshotted
the blessed lulant time and again.
"Oh 1 do hope the duke looked
pleasant," said Miss Raj anxiously.
“He Is sm-h a bcarjy when he wants
to Ire.”
Mrs. Shouts said with gramlmother
l> pride:
“He Is the finest boy baby 1 ever
saw In my life. Although he iH only
two months old everybody thinks lie
is six mouths at least; wouldn't you
think so? Then he has such a thought
ful disposition. He Is gay, too, and
laughs wheuev* r you poke him, but
he has the most aristocratic temper; If
things don’t please him ho simply
blazes. It shows what u magnificent
duke he is, and only two months old."
To Be Notable Event.
The baby has not been named yet,
so the entire ShonU family, including
the duchess, his mother, always refer
to Mm*as “Baby.” Early in March
he will be christened. Mr. Bhonts will
come over to Purls for tho ceremony.
When lilt grandmother of the duke
was asked what his name would be
she replied; *
“The duke will bear every one of his
father’s names and titles. Ido not re
member them all, hut you will find
them in the Almanack de llothu."
The correspondent asked:
“And where will the ceremony take
place?"
Mrs. Fhonts said: “The duke will be
baptized In the halls of his ancestors.
His aristocratic connections, not only
of Fram e but of Europe, will be thy
guests at the Cimteau Damplorre for
the ceremony. There are guest
chambers at the chateau, and almost
ns muny rooms for the servants, You
never saw anything like It."
The Duchess de Cbuntmm was un
able to come down to teh street door
to see Miss Kay snapshot her ducal
child. Hhe has been confined to her
bed for the last week, quite ill with
la grippe Just as soon as the duchess
Is able to travel the fihonts family
will accompany the young duke to
Mentone, where they have taken a
\ilia for two months, Meanwhile the
l»aby duke gne* out every day In n

ed nurse in < ap and ribbons, a footman

grandmother.
He Is a fat boy, with red cheeks and
dark eyes.
Prime ilelle de Hagan, in order to
show that he is quite a* worthy to be
she husband of Mine. Anna Gould 'as
Count Honi de Castellane. lias created
two sensations this week
One was having Judgment pro
nounced against him for u r >o nOu fram s.
due a money lender on a note signed
on Nov. 29. 1907. If the money is not
paid or an nppeal taken an attachment
will be Issued against IV* Fagan's per
sonal property.
De Sagan's Property.
fio far as the agents of the mom v
lender know - , the only property of De
Hagan consists of 100 new waistcoats.
On Tuesday he visited a fashionable
tailor's establishment In the Avenue
des Champs Eiysees and taking up a
book of samples snld: "Make mo ono
of each.”
There were exnotl/ 100, all of differ
ent designs. The prince hopes to cap
ture the leadership of fashion held 30
years ago by hln father. The old Prince
Do Sayan led fashion chiefly owing to
his splendid waistcoats, flowing cra
vats and gold eyeglass with a wide
black ribbon.
Prince Hello has not, however, yet
equalled his predecessor, Count Boni,
who ono day ordered 200 pairs of
trousers.
Meanwhile the Castellanos have pe
titioned for permission to appeal
agHlnst the court’s decision regarding
the care of the children, which wus
largely In favor of Mine. Anna Could
and her present husband. Whether the
case will be allowed to go to the court
of appeals will be decided this week.

tion was introduced today in the sen
