February Sales Nearer to Nor
mal, Says Bank.
Sales of department and apparel stores
in this reserve district In February in
dicated a nearer normal volume of trans
actions than in many other trade fields.
Reports tp the Reserve Bank from sixty
four stores showed sales of $23,850,000.
a. decline of 4 per cent, from the total
of February. 1921. The comparison was
more favorable than it was in January,
as its sales were 8 per cent, less than j
those of January, 1921.
The number of individual transactions i
in February was 6 per cent, larger
than those of a year before. The aver- ;
age amount of the individual sale was
$?.o2. against $2.77 in February. 1921, |
a decline of 9 per cent., apparently re-1

year. The bank, which is to "resent j
In detail Its survey in its monthly re

of a lursrer number of special sales by
large stores was to some extent th?

A Sinking Fund i? provided, available semi-annually, to redeam 2% ($280,000 par value)
of Seriea "A" Bond* each year by purchase if obtainable at or below 100 and interest
The information given below is summarized by Edwin Gruhl, Esq., President of the
North American Edison Company, from a letter to us:
North American Edison Company, a subsidiary of The North American Company, will pledge with the
Trustee as security for these bonds, the following collateral, representing control of two of the most
important and successful electric utility corporations in the country:
$10,940,100 (72.7% of total outstanding) of the common stock
of The Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company;
11,015,200 the entire outstanding common stock of the Un
ion Electric Light and Power Company, of St. Louis;
$21,955,300 Total par value.
These stocks, pledged at less than 64% of their par, will represent an aggregate value of $24,559,415
or 175% of the par of these bonds, based on valuations of the properties for rate making purposes made
by the Public Utilities Commissions having jurisdiction, with subsequent additions at cost. Including
cash, investments, and other net assets not considered for rate making purposes, such aggregate value is
approximately $28,400,000, or over 200% of the bonds.
Additional bonds are issuable only under careful restrictions contained in the trust indenture.
Dividends have been paid on The Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company stock without interruption
for 21 years, the average rate being over 8%, and on Union Electric Light and Power Company
(and predecessors) stock continuously for 15 years, the average rate being over 7%.
At the rates now actually paid, dividends on the pledged collateral amount to $2,195,530, or over 21 >
times annual interest on these bonds of $840,000, and at the average rates paid for the past fifteen
years, would be equal to more than twice such interest charge.
The combined earnings of The Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company and the Union Electric Light
and Power Company, of St. Louis, available for dividends on the collateral pledged under these bonds,
after all fixed charges, taxes and liberal depreciation, amounted to $2,900,057 for the year ended
December 31, 1921, and averaged $2,308,541 for the three years preceding that date. Such average
earnings before setting aside reserves for depreciation amounted to $4,508,089 per annum.
These bonds v. .1 be followed by 200,000 shares no par value capital stock, all owned by The North
American Company and representing an investment by that company of over $14,000,000.
We offer these bonds for delivery when, as and if issued and
received by us, and subject to approval by our counsel.
