there was a large Increase in loans. j
From this It can be easily seen that the
reaerves of the New York banks may be
vitally affected, without the bani.a parting
with any cash. A large increase in loans. ,

If It affected anything It would be the de

also lower the reserve required.
This comparison, I think, will confirm the
popular Impres'lon which has long existed,
that the extraordinary high interest ratea
which sometimes prevail, oot only in the
fall, but at other periods of the year in

the Rev. C. M. Chilton, an evangelist, de
clared In a sermon to a congregation of
First Christian church that "churches must

It Is in other walks of life." Almost coin
cident with this utterance was that of the
Rev. Frank N. Brown of Brooklyn, preach

Sunday schools should have their adver

as the modern mercantile establishments
