OW, while they were argufying, young Jim, the young apprentice

feller, he creeps up to the queen upon the throne. She was beautiful, she was, and she shone in the sun, and she looked straight ahead of her like a waxwork in a show. And in her hand she had a sack full of jewels, and at her feet she had a sack full of gold, and by her side was an empty throne ready for the king she married.

But round her right hand there was a red snake, and round her left hand there was a blue snake, and the snakes hissed and twisted and they showed their teeth full of poison. So Jim looked at the snakes, and he hit them a welt, right and left, and he kissed the lady.

And immediately all the bells and the birds of the world burst out a-ringing and a-singing. The lady awoke from her sleep, and Jim's old clothes were to cloth of gold. And there he was, a king, on the throne beside the lady.

But the red snake turned to a big red devil who took a hold of Joe, and the blue snake turned to a big blue devil who took a hold of Jerry. And "Come you here, you brawling pugs,” they said. "come and shovel sand."

And Joe and Jerry took the spades that were given to them, now," said the devils. "Heave roundLet's see you dig. Dig, you scarecrows And tell us when you've dug to London."

Diversified

6% July Investments

was

The most conservative investors limit their purchases to first mortgage bonds, and increase the soundness of their holdings by diversifying theirinvestments, placing theirfunds in several different issues.

In response to this general demand we have selected from our July Investment List a few well-diversified 6% bond issues, directly secured by first mortgages on the following:

Store and office building on centrally located Chicago corner,

valued at more than twice the bonds.

New downtown Minneapolis store and office building, owned by a corporation with net assets nearly three times the bond issue.

New buildings occupied by the largest department store in Pittsburgh, Pa., founded 43 years ago.

New downtown Kansas City office building, costing more than twice the total amount of bonds.

These bonds are issued in denominations of $100, $500. and $1,000, and will come dac and be paid in serial installments in two to ten years, giving investors a choice of maturities.

The fact that no investor has ever suffered loss of either principal or interest on any security purchased of us since this House was founded in 1882 is a record which we commend to the attention of investors, and which we believe is an ample basis for confidence.
