worms and Insects were found by
M. E. Flynn, assistant inspector of the
state pure food and dairy commission
in local cold storage plants yesterda
morning. The firms that were booked
um having entered the decayed candy
and fruit contended that they were ig
norant of the condition of the goods
and that they were not Informed on
the requirements of the new cold stor
age law which went into effect last
July. As this is the first Investiga
tion that the commission has conducfr
ed In cold storage plants in Davenport
Mr. Flynn decided not to flle suit against
the firms owning the goods but gave
warning that future violations of the
law would cause speedy prosecution.
Grocers and butchers who sell any
cold storage products are required by
law to display a sign, "Cold Storage
Goods Sold Here." the statute con
taining this requirement having gone
into effect last July. Inasmuch as the

fee whether the cold storage sign will
jostle its opposite in Davenport stores

ably be Inaugurated.

Chicago Banker Takes High Finance to the People
BY CAMERON LAN DON.
Chicago, Oct 1. The high cost of
living at last has been at to useful
work. It is diligently building sky
scrapers and apartment buildings. In
Chicago the credit for a large part of
the year's building, and the total will
be over $100,000,000, will be due to
what has been accomplished by har
nessing the demand for higher income
to balance the high living costs. The
towering office buildings and part of
the acres of apartment buildings, in
cluding some of the luxurious apart
ments, are in fact monuments to what
an idea can do.
This is the explanation given: Dur
ing the years when the wildcatters
harvested three or four hundred mil
lion dollars annually the major factor
in the harvest was the cost of living
which created a need for higher rates
of Income from savings and for a
small-amount form of investment such
as the wildcatters offered in profusion.
The fabulous rates and the size of
the shares flaunted by the wildcat
promoters combined to take savings
away from the public as easily aa a
bully takes candy from his "kid"
As for bonds, they were Inflexibly
$1,000 and offered in blocks of $5,000,
which was a sum too great for the
man or woman who had saved a hun
dred or two. The small investor saw
little to help his income above the 3
per cent at the savings bank and he
Then came the idea, the result of
years of study of conditions and of
a solution. The altruism of a Chi
cago hanker, S. W. Straus, had taken
practical turn. He had make a study
of finance abroad as well as in the
United States and he proposed that
bonds of small denominations bearing
5 per cent be issued, toonds secured by
first mortgage on improved city real
estate and maturing serially. Instead
cf making the improvement of city
property the business of rich men, he
worked out a way by which the big
sums for mortgages by which sky
scrapers and aDartment houses are fi

for small investors to take a part.
That is how the "Strauss" system of
financing, which has spread far be
yond Chicago, was originated. The
first mortgage, real estate bond,
which was a fraction of a big mort
gage cf stable value, was the result.
By means of such bonds as these
today a large part of the urban build
ing operations in Chicago are carried
on. Here w as a simple thing, tnough
a departure from custom, ' one that
serves to add improvements to a city
at a rate far greater than before. It
was obvious that dividing up a mort
gage into a series of bonds did not
diminish the value of the security, of
the mortgage or of the individual bond
! even if it was only for $100. By divid
ing the loan into bonds which mature
serially the safety was enhanced and
that discovery has caused the old plan
of "sinking funds" to be abandoned
in a large measure in the middle west
where interest rates rule high and se
curity must be double-riveted. For aa
