To Conservative Investors Five per cer.t. mortgages, well secured, and made by good borrowers can be depended upon for the interest as well as for the principal when due. On the other hand, six per cent. mortgages are at this time be ing made dnly upon questionable securiry or the borrowers are in poor credit. Therefore, in our opinion, five per cent. mortgages are most decidedly to be preferred to six per cent. mortgages because they are Surer as to interest, Safer as to principal Send for our last list of loans.
