The Elimination of the
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
Ot this newly formed company a dls-
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.

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
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
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
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.

Well Known Politician Nearly Bald
Now Has Heavy Growth of Hair.
Tells How He Did It.
A western politician, well known on
account of his baldness and his ready
wit surprised his friends by appearing
with a heavy growth of hair; many of
hia friends did not know him, and
others thought he had a wig. On be
ing asked how he did it, he made the
following statement: "I attribute the
growth of my hair to the following
simple recipe which any lady or gen
tleman can mix at home. To a half
pint of water add 1 ox. of Bay Rum, a
small box of Barbo Compound and 1
oa. of Glycerine. Apply to the scalp
two or three times a week with the
finger tlpa. It not only promotes the
growth of the hair, but removes dand
ruff, scalp humors and prevents the
hair from falling out. It darkens
streaked, faded, gray hah and makes
the hair soft and glossy. These Ingre
dients can be purchased at any drug
store at very little cost and mixed at

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

scalp and stops falling hair. Years ago
the only way to get this mixture was
to make it at home, which is mussy
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. (adv)
