A THRIFTY PEOPLE. In view of the steady Increase In savings deposits in the United Stales it seems reasonable to expect that tho nation will some, day be as noted for Its thrift and saving disposition as France now Is, though this is not to say th.it extravagance and reckless ex penditure will not always be too much In evidence. .While statistics nre not available to sustain the assertion, it la probably true that the steady Increase in the total savings of tho country also represents an average increase of each depositor's account. In Illinois, for example, a report compiled by the state auditor from the reports of sav ings banks shows an average of $7.o'J Increase due each depositor In the last year. The total of time savings depos its In Illinois n compared with a year ego shows an Increase of approximate ly $3 1. 000. 000, two-fifths of which is outside of Chicago. In the last twelve months there has been a big gain in the savings depositor! of the state. In New York state there has been a very rtrady Increase in savings deposits year after year since 1SD4, each total showing a gain over the preceding one, with one exception. P.I0S, due to tho panic of the previous fall. In lS'tl the savings deposits In New York stato amounted to $031,000,000, on which the Interest account was $J3p3'.t0,0OO. on July 1 of 1911 the savings deposits of the state amounted to over a billion and a half dollars $1,591,221,000 to be exact on which $55,613,000 Interest was paid.
