More lock Than Sense.
E. Allen, u Chicago drummer,
was In Salem a day or bo ago wear
ing a sad face. "When lu Portland
ho had $500 in new crisp bills. In
stead of leaving tills in tho hotel
Bafc, as any wiso man would do, ho
wrapped it up in an old newspaper
and hid it under his trunk. Leav
ing for Salem the next morning ho
ordered his trunk taken to tho bag
gage room, unmindful of his treas
ure. Arriving in this city, tho aw
fulness of tho situation dawned up
on him. Ho telegraphed the land
lord, who was sneccssful in rescuing
his old paper in which was his
wealth from the waste basket. An
other hour and tho grecuoy's green
backs would have made expensive
kindling. Meral: Keep your mon
oy in a safe place; don't hide it under
trunks and in old tin cans.

and give quite a metropolitan air to
tho burg as their bells tinkle along
the street.
To-day tho workmen aro planking
the road from Commercial along
State and no later than Monday
cars will 1)0 making regular trips.
This enterprise will be of great con
venience to our citizens as well as a
good advertisement for tho city.
Such enterprifeesspeak louder than a
world of empty words. Let us
move in tho matter of tho establish
ment of woolen mills in our city
and tho future prosperity is assured.
A Uullilinp and Loan Association.
The agent of tho Minneapolis
Building and Loan association who
Is now in tho city for tho purpose of
eH'eeting an organization here, says

of stock look well as over known
before at this season of tho year.
Stock theives aro qulto numerous

American Building and'Loan Association.
A. M. Kennedy, assistant general
agent of tho Minneapolis Building
& Loan association, Is now in tho
city interviewing our citizens on the
subject of the establishment of sueh
an association in our city.
The object of this organization is
to loan money to its stockholders at
0 per cent per annum. Tho advan
tage of this organization over local
organizations of this kind is that
tho members do not have to bid
different rates of interest to obtain
loans, but each stockholder Is en
titled to a loan of 50 dollars on each
share on which amount ho pays 0
nercent Interest. When member
ship is applied for, tho first month's
payment is ono dollar per share and
after that GO cents per share until
tho stock matures, which will be in
from 0 to 7 years. When tho stock
matures tho stockholders receive
100 dollars in cash money if they
have obtained no loan. If a mem
ber has borrowed money from the
association ho receives his note back
and his mortgage Is cancelled at
maturity of tho stock. This associa
tion is tho moat extensive of the
building associations ot tho United
States, it having between 500 and
600 branches throughout the cou ntry.
The branch at Salem will be of
great value to this community as
well as to tho surrounding country.
The loans are mado exclusively on
real estate and farm land. Any ono
who desires further information will
