IS, 1J14- The Elimination of the Loan Shark. On of the great vQs of every age baa Ieen the loan shark. In whatever TdM or under whatever name, the usurer has ben held In contempt, from time Immemorial. The extortioner has too knur preyed upon the weak and the unwary, and for the purpose of oor rectlns the loan shark erU throughout the country, many plans have b-en devised and In some states, notably in Florida, laws have been passed pro hibiting the usnrer from plying bis ne farious business, and fattening: on the spoils of the helpless. Tn order to make It possible for de serving persons of small means to bor row money at reasonable rates, a-d wltcoit collateral, there wae Incorpor ated at Richmond, Va, on February 15, a compaj known as tlie Industrial Finance Corporation. Ot this newly formed company a dls- patch says: To accomplish its end the new com pany, which is incorporated under au thority of the Virginia State Corpora tion Commission with a capital of J6, 000,000, will facilitate and assist finan cially the" organization throughout the country of local institutions which will afford Industrious and needy wage earners and all other small borrowers the opportunity for borrowing; small sums of money on Just and fair terms, and at the same time promote rav ings among its patrons. As formally expressed In the char ter, the object of 'the company -is to encourage and assist In the organiza. tion of local institutions In every city of sufficient size throughout the coun try that will. "First: Provide for the worthy wage earner and other small borrower where the need of the loan is apparent, op portunity for borrowing small sums of money without the necessity of sub mitting to the extortion of money lenders, but at rates which are rea sonable to the borrower and yet fairly remunerative to capital; to enable the small borrower to secure such moneys largely upon the faith of endorse ments and guarantees and without re quirement of a pledge of chattels as collateral security for repayment, and "Second: To provide opportunity for the systematic investment of small savings, bearing a higher rate of In terest than is now feasible and afford ing a basis for the securing of credit and thus to encourage thrift." According to the formal announce ment made, the corporation has ac ralred all the assets of the Fidelity Corporation of America, which has "heretofore bad the sole right to the Morris Plan" of Industrial savings and loans, every expression and every form of which is covered by copyrights. The plan was originated by Arthur J. Morris and his law Arm, Messrs. Mor ris. Oarnett & Cotten, of Norfolk, Va. and the first institution to operate nn der the plan was launched about four years ago at Norfolk. The man who needs money but lacks such collateral as is required by ex 1 sting financial institutions, has hlth errto 'been forced to seek loans from either the pawn broker or the chattel mortgage man. These lenders are of two classes, the beneflcient and the ra padotM, the latter class being general ly known as loan sharks. The plan to be followed by" the In- We Have Boy Scowts Sizes, 9 to 6.

Atlanta, Baltimore, Memphis, Richmond, Char leston, St. Louis, Denver, Philadelphia and other progressive cities. The project Is not a charity and the patrons are in no sense objects of charity. The purpose, as outlined by the announcement made by the com pany Just formed is Richmond, Is to conduct all operations on a strictly business basis, so as to afford a fair return on the capital employed, as would be expected from a financial in stltutlon operated under a conservative management. The elimination of the loan shark Is as inevitable as it is desirable, and If the Morris plan can save $75,000 to the borrowers in a single city in one year, as it did In Atlanta, ft muet be practical, when put to the test. Activity in the Iron and Steel World. It Is generally understood that ac tivity in the iron and steel industry means good times generally. This t tlvity is probably a result rather the a cause, but whether it is or not the fact that the Iron and steel mills are doing business is a recognized demon stration that good times are either present or close at hand. In view of these things, the following from the Birxtiingbatm News of Sunday makes very gratifying reading: The effect of the steady revival in the Iron and steel world that has been in evidence for some weeks, is being felt to a marked degree In Binning ham. Beginning yesterday, the steel mill of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Rail road Company at Ensley, was put on full time, six days a week, for the first time since November. Morover, the Indications are that additions will be made before long to the large force now employed at this Important plant. The Snsley steel mill is a part of the Industrial equipment of the United States Steel Corporation, which booked orders during the first month of the year at the rate of 40,000 tons a day, and which, during the first week in the present month, had the satisfaction of seeing the volume climb to 50,000 tons dally. Increased business with the Steel Corporation means increased activity In the Alabama plants, and the development at Ensley Is a case in point. Yet, while there has been a very decided revival since the first of the year, this revival Is really Just begin ning. The demands now being made upon the steel and Iron concerns of the country are the first evidences of a really great awakenlng. The move ment will continue to gain In momen tum, and before the year Is half gone, every prophecy of a great year for business will have been fulfilled, the News believes. And, it might be added. this theory obtains very largely in business circles, both In the United States and abroad. Indeed, the opin ion of the whole world is that the United States now is entering upon a period of unprecedented prosperity. This revival Is being felt In Birming ham in other places than In the steel mill above referred to. It has become very conspicuous in iron circles, the demand for Birmingham metal grow ing to such proportions that the prod uct has undergone an advance of $1 per ton. No. 2 foundry, during the past few weeks. Ail of this serves to bear out the many predictions that the year 1914 la going to usher In the greatest era of prosperity the country has ever known. And Pensacola will show very healthy evidence of that prosperity be fore the year is out. Out of town people will come to Pensacola on Dollar Day. TONS OF AND SILVER PAY DAY AT THE PANAMA CANAL WAS A SIGHT TO SEE 24 TONS OF SILVER AND 1,600 POUNDS OF GOLD WERE NECESSARY- JOURNAL'S BOOK TELLS ABOUT IT. When the work of digging the Panama canal was at full blast pay day was a sight to see. It lasted for three days, and sixteen hundred pounds of gold and twenty-four tons of silver were required to meet the monthly pay roll. The common laborers, except the Spaniards and Italians, were paid in Panaman sliver. The United States agreed with the Panama government to maintain parity of Panama n silver at two to one, and therefore, paid off the negro labor in it. It was wrapped up in paper in the same way that a bank wraps small silver, some of the rolls containing twenty silver dollars, some ten, and so on. A month's wages In silver, with two dollars required to make one, made no mean bulk, and It was a sight to see the negro get down out of the pay car with a hatful of coin. The pay train consisted of -an en gine and tender and the pay car. It had a regulation platform at either end, but this was for the use of the force and the American workmen. The Spaniards and negroes had to climb up a set of steps on the one side, show their metal number check and their pay check to the policeman at the door, ; GOLD You'll Crow Over "GETS-IT" for Corns!

Fried in deep fat, the same food ab sorbs less fat, takes on a light, delicate brown and has no burned edges. Modern domestic science teachers all advocate deep fry ing instead of pan frying.

M OLD RECIPE TO DARKEN HAIR Common garden Sage and Sulphur makes streaked, faded or gray hair dark and glossy at once. Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur, properly compound er, brings back the naturaj color and lustre to the hair when faded, streak ed or gray; also ends dandruff. Itching scalp and stops falling hair. Years ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays we simply ask at any drug store for "Wyeth's Sag- and Sulphur Hair Remedy." Tou will ret a large bottle for about 50 cents. Everybody uses this old, famous recipe, because no one can possibly tell that you dark ened your hair, as It does It so natur allly and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with It and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair 3i?appears and after another ap plication or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy and you look years younger.
