THE NEBRASKA CENTRAL. BUILD
ING AND LOAN ASSOCIATION.
No movement during the last ten
years has met with such unqualified
success as have the building and loan
associations scattered throughout the
United States. This growth is attribu
ted to many causes which are easily
understood when the subject is studied
from a disinterested point of view.
The saving man does not consider
himself educated enough to understand
the delicate points which are the in
vestor's stock and trade and his first
thought is of the savings bank, which
offers him three to four per cent and
absolute security. At this point the
building and loan association comes
in and to the investor guarantees six
percent and even better which experi
ence has shown to furnish the same se
curity, with the natural result that he
chooses the latter. It is a plan by
which two persons benefit, the inves
tor and the client who wishes to es
cape the landlord's grip.
The Nebraska Central Building &
Loan Association commenced business
in 1293 and their fourteen years of
progress is shown by the following

its customers a key tag to attach to
one's key ring. The tag bsars the
name of the company and a reward
for the return of keys, and each tag
is numbered. '
Such a system guarantees return of
lost keys and besides provides for i
identification in case of accident, sud
den illness or distress, no matter in
what part of the country one may be.
These tags are given to every rent
er of a safe deposit box, .
Their safe deposit boxes a-rp in a
fire and burglar proof steel lined vault,
and cannot be opened by any person
except the renter, and provide an-ah-'
solutely safe place for money and val
uable papers. A box costs only seventy-five
cents for three months, $3 per
year. ' -
What they are able to do for their
policy holders is shown by what they
have actually accomplished in 1906.
During t'hls year the Nebraska Cen
tral matured 797 shares If Its install
ment stock and paid Its shareholders
$79,700.00 in cash. This stock was
carried nppn a monthly ' payment of
60 cents per share and reached ma
turity in 112 months.
Total amount paid in on 797
shares was..;. $53,500.00
The profits were 26,200.00

MR. PARKER'S CANDIDACY.
In the customary place in this issue
will be found the announcement of J.
D. Parker, better known as "Jim,"
who is a candidate before the repub
lican primaries for the nomination to
the office - of sheriff. Mr. Parker is
too well known in Lancaster county
to need an introduction at the hands
of The Wageworker. While in" busi
In, Lincoln he insisted on ' 'his em
ployes belonging to the union of" their
craft. He held the office of chief of
police for several years and is quite
willing tq rest upon the record there
made. 'He is making an .open and
manly fight for the nomination and is
meeting with cordial support in all
quarters, especially from those who
have had dealings with him in a busi
ness way. ' "
HIS EXPENSE MONEY.
Col. Tom Pratt, present city clerk
and candidate before the republican
primaries for the nomination to the
office of clerk of the district court,
says he is running on his record. Far
be it from The Wageworker to attempt
to discredit Col. Pratt's ability. There
is no discounting it. But what we
want to know is this: Is Col. Pratt
financing his campaign, with the divi
dends he draws on his stock .In the
Lincoln Overall and Shirt company?
He may reply that" it is none of The
Wageworker's business, but this hum
ble little labor paper is so darn curi
ous that it really cannot refrain from
propounding the query.
The man who declares that trades
unions are. in favor of strikes is
merely exposing his ignorance. Trades
unions abhor strikes " and resort to
them' only when all other means of
securing justice have utterly failed.
