They are peculiarly Sjwanc ae evidences of how the determine- So to better one’s condition is growing in every j«3 of our Western life. Conversing with Mr. John C. Hamea, Presi tot the Fidelity Savings Bank and St's Depository, and with other officials rf tbe gune sterling institution, we loam Jr w deal that is both entertaining and pintle in regard to the workings of tbs saving* system. It seems that the desire to have something ahead for the proverbial ftisvdayis vearly becoming more extended in Ctiago. Our merry-hearted Irish citizens, ettvbile supposed to be among the most im provident of people, have grown into a particu- y T earing way. Their deposits in the Fidelity Baiik now aggregate to a very handsome figure, isdire constantly increasing. The Scandina via bare always bold a conspicuous place among those who take thought for the morrow. Tjj£ T tie true as ever to their reputation here, tod* are among the Fidelity’s most constant tod understanding depositors. Among citizens cf native Amehcan-birtb, as might be ex pected in a bank officered by men of such long-time and enviable business and social position, the Fidelity makes a superb showing. Thrift, and an intuition in favor of enunesily sound financial institutions, are characteristic of tout genuine American every where. Another interesting feature of Chicago cavings banks, as exemplified in the Fidelity, is that the list of depositors no longer confines itself io persons of small or moderate incomes. The names of men of acknowledged business prominence and large financial resources are frequently to be found upon its books of long term depositors. They agree that the money thus put away is secure against the contingencies of uads. It ia something guarded against re verses, a source of certain help to tnemselves ood their families if all else in their fabric of fortune topples to nun. There are similar details of the workings of the famous safe depository, which is a co-oi di cate portion of the Fidelity establishment. In uds fortress of protection against fire and dis hcoestv, we learn that individuals of lesser in comes than may be supposed have safes for the private preservation of their valuables. Of morse, by far the larger proportion of holders of safes In a great institution like this will al ways be men of prominence in commercial and financial circles. The ownership of bonds, aoney, diamonds, deeds, coin, silver plate, etc., must be in their bands to a greater extent than ia those of persons of lesser station. But the latter are just aa desirous of having what valu ables they do possess well cued for as ire their wealthier brethren. They have found that the Fidelity vaults protect alike tie goods of the rich and the poor, noth against roguery and dire conflagration. This last fea ture is'simply superlative in ita excellence, for tie Fidelity saved millions of treasure in the most terrific conflagration ever written with fingers of streaming fire across the world’s his torv. How it protects Its valuables against the pos sibility of encroachment by thieves from without or dishonesty within, has been chronicled by us before. We have merely to add that the Fidel ity Safe Depository, like the Fidelity Savings Back, is a tower of strength in the way of im pregnability ; a noble evidence of the fact that honesty is more than a match at all times for iniquity; that experience, skill, and probity can conquer and subdue both human villainy and the worst assaults of the worst of nature's ele- Bsnts. A New Idea* lbs Illinois Trust and Savings Bank Is about to issue convenient certificates of deposit in mas of $lO and multiple, payable on demand. These will be in handy form for the pocket or task, and will be good only when Indorsed. The Uea has been maturely considered, and its adop tion by the bank will, It is' believed, relievo fam ilies and individuals from the trouble of keeping mall bank or of holding much currency oo hand.
