Their mi'tlitxls of handling their own hard-earned dollars, if
.tdopted by bank officials, would produce mob violence, and yet
these investors are not wholly to blame. The doubting Thomases,
the skeptics, the I-never-believe-anything-unlesR-I-see-it-with my-own-eyes
sort of persons have usually had some unfortunate ex
perience in money matters, and realizing the limitations of time
and money at their disposal, to say nothing of the usual lack of
knowing how, it is no wonder so many quit in disgust and let their
money mildew at the rate of 3 per cent per annum or until the
bank quits business.
, ' Criminal prosecutions would speedily follow if a bank official
did not do better with such funds then why is the power of the
funds more exempt than the bank official?

Don't miss Jasper's Hints to Money Makers."
Don't fail to read Henry Shedd Beurdsley's article, "Tun
neling Under Gold-Ribbed Mountains," which tells the truth
about the great Hoosac Tunnel & Mining Co. and other much ad
vertised enterprises of that district.
If you prefer to acquire the information that distinguishes
the shrewd investor, from he who is indifferent or careless, you
will accept my advice.
Mr. Hoards ley's article is a graphic, description of the most
profitable and most fascinating of all money making industries
mining as a business. What Mr. Beardsley tells you in this week's
issue of Leslie's Weekly, I have been trying to tell you for weeks
past at the expense of valuable space in this newspaper, and what
I have told you I can repeat here, that the stock in the Hoosac
Tunnel & Mining Co. is n safe investment.

Kaspur was on the stand a short time
after court convened for tha afternoon ses
sion. The feature of Kaspar'a testimony
In the afternoon was thr aworn statement
that the reason he did not conflda hla
suspicions before lie did. which waa Feb
ruary 3. three wreks after the fire, was
because res threatened Ills life If hr told
on hint, and also because Zees promised
to make n fair division of the Insurance
money that he believed would be re
reived. Zees said he lost all his clothing
and other personal effects In the flra.
Mrs. Hertha Hsabbo, wife of a shoe cob
bler, who lived next door to the Zees'
randy store, testified she had a premonition
the store would be burned, as she knew
from her own observations and front the
statements of others that Zeca was not
doing well. She raid she expected the fire,
and It came.
One if Kaspar's sensational statements
while on the stand yesterday afternoon
was, "After the fire I went-to Zees and
said, "You are a pretty good fireman.'
Then Zees sitid, "Kverybody does not know
how to burn a. building. I sprinkled gas
oline over the chairs.' "
Wednenday morning Kaspar waa on the
stand and told a lengthy story cf his con

Zees at the address where the fire broke

"On the day before the fire," Kapar aald,

that the only thing left for him to do was
to burn the building. A few mlnutea before

He sent me for bread, but when I reached
the bakery I heard thr fire department com
