Tho building of a homo 1 a serious
undertaking which few men do more
than once. Tho importance of deciding
upoh the belt material cannot be over
estimated. The material should be such
as will malto tho beat home, best in the
sense of being durable and lasting, best
in the seme of being tenable and home
like, and best In tho sense of giving an
artistic and attractive appearaiice.
Of all tho material of whloh a house
may be built there Is only one which 1b
complotcly fireproof and that Is concrete.
It Is possible to make even a large house
practically all one piece, walls, roofs,
Ifloora and stairs, only Uio trimmings In
Ube rooms being of wood.
Such a house may conform to any
builder's Ideal of a beautiful houso, be

worked material, lending Itself to pira

which Is of stucco. Stucco, while It gives
the beauty of texture offered by solid
concrete, Is not, of course, an absolutely
fireproof method, of building, but stucco
does lend Itself to a slow burning,
Conorete Is a mixture of cement, sand
and gravel in such proportions that when
properly made It hardens Into permanent
stone. There is in existence concrete
work 2,000 years old which Is today' prao
tlcally lndeBtructlble. Good -stucco Is
Indestructiblo and bn this1 aocount 're
quires very little expense for repairs or
upkeep. It Is sanitary in the strictest
sense, as It Is not In Itself dirt, in easily
cleaned and affords no hiding place for
mice, rats or Insects, As concrete is prac
tically stone, It bas the qualities of stone.
Therefore, a concreto or stucco house
Is warm In winter and cool In summer.
The house Illustrated above is of frame
and stucco. The entire exterior Is covered
with a rough coat of stucco with a peb
bio dash. A glance at the floor plans
will show how conveniently all the rooms
aro arranged. The, den, living and dining
rooms are .finished In a weathered oak

Is finished throughout in the selected
birch and is enameled in the bedrooms
on the second floor.

That the well-established, conscien
tiously. manugod and fully-equipped trust
company Is the most perfect Instrument
that has yet boen devised for handling
fiduciary matters In all their varied and
complicated forms is a fact that no think
ing man or woman will dispute. It is a
fact that all who run may read.
'Take for the purpose of illustration
some large Institution of this kind among'
the "up-to-date" trust companies of tho
country and consider Its wide scops. It
conducts bond, trust, mortgage and safe
deposit departments. It loans money on
mortgages, It sells Investment mort
gages. It acts as guardian of minors.
It takes full charge of real estate and
personal property. It acts as reoelver,
serves as administrator and executor of
estates and fills all the varied duties of
a trustee. It acts as transfer agent and
as registrar of the stocks and bonds of
corporations. It gives free Investment
and general financial advice to ben-
ftclarlos under wills in which it Is named
aa executor and It performs a multiplic
ity of other duties.
With all Its departments under one roof
and under one general management, It
Is to Its patrons and to the public In gen
eral what might be called tho department
storo of finance. To obtain Us share of
this great and diversified business, the
trust company must have directors who
are well known directors who have the
unhesitating Confidence of the public; to
discharge Us duties properly and profit
ably It must have officers who know their
business In all Its branches and In all
Its manifold Intricacies; It must have ex
perts In each department men carefully
trained In the particular duties assigned
to them and It must have ample and, la
fact great resources.
Unlike the individual, It must always
be in a position to solve and handle not
one financial problem of a given kind,
but many perplexing ones of a com
plicated character. It must be In a
position to assist the weak and to defy
the mighty. It must be ready at all
times and under all circumstances, to act
not only with courageous alacrity, but
with sound discretion and rare wisdom.
That Is all essential because millions
of dollars of other people'-, money are
confidently and confidingly intrusted to
its care. Its responsibility Is correspond
ingly enormous. It dares not be negligent.
It must always be vigilant. It must be
broad In policy, liberal In action and
unbendingly upright in duty. To Insure
ail this It has Us large force of employes,
Its trained department heads. Its expert
officers and its experienced and alert
The perfect parts of this business ma
chinery work Independently and yet
cohesively. They give to the trust com
pany and to its partons, in any or all
of Its departments, not the mere opinion
of an inexperienced Individual, whose
personal Interests ore elsewhere, but the
combined and conscientious judgment of
experts in whose minds each particular
case becomes, for the time being, the
eolo concern of the Institution. In that
there is to be found a striking exempli
fication of the truism that "in union
there is strength."
That strength not only aids, but pro-

tects, those who do business with the
trust company. Their protection does not
end there, however. In addition to this
combined, well seasoned Judgment there
Is the protective work of tho auditing
committee of the well organised com
pany. That, In turn, is backed up by
the audit of outside expert accountants,
who are employed from time to time, and
over all is the unhampered and un
restralnablo expert examination that Is
made, officially at frequent and irregular
Intervals by the lynx-eyed Independent
examiners of the state auditing depart
ment. Under this varied and rigid inside
and outside supervison the trust com
pany must, of necessity, move along lines
of honor and accuracy.
So well established has that fact be
come and so marked is the confidence of
the public in the great institutions of
this1 kind that their business Is growing
enormously, not only to their satisfaction,
but to the financial well-being and the
peace of mind of thoso 1 who patronize
them. In no part of the trust company's
field of endeavor is this growth more
clearly demonstrated than in Its trust
Actuated by sound reasoning, men and
women in all walks of life are going ta
the trust company with their fiduciary
business. That business embraces every
conceivable form of trust, not the least
of which are the exacting duties of the
executor of estates.
In that field the growth of the trust
company has been pronounced. To un
derstand the reason for this Is not diffi
cult Take again the case of the up-to-date
tcust company. It is well known
that such an institution makes a spe
cialty of administering estates. The ex
perts whom It has assigned to this 1m
, portant work are trained specialists. They
have done practically nothing else for
years. They have no other duties to per
form. They have no other business calls
upon their Intellect or their time. To
their work they can give, and do give,
and must gtvo, their undivided attention
and Judgment. What they do moreover,
is subjected to an elaborate, but smooth
working, system of checking. All that
they do Is examined and passed upon by
one or more of the company's officers
and by its executive committee. Much
of it Is submitted to the combined Judg
ment of the Institution's directors, and
ajl of it Is backed up by the company's
resources and by its reputation, which it
guards with Jealous and unreiaxing earn.
Under these conditions It is not remark
able that a steadily Increasing numbei
of men and women are naming the truit
company as the executor of their estate.
With them It Is a simple matter of chooo
lng between corporate experience and re
sponsibility and individual ipexpertenc
andanrellablltty. Between the two, with
little, if any, difference in the cost,
testators are no longer hesitating. They
understand the Immense advantages in
the care of estates that the trust com
pany has over the individual, experienced
It is big; It is fearless; It never forgetsf
It Is ne.ver "out"; It takes no vacation!
it can never "disappear"; it has had wide
and varied experience; it can not be
moved by pleas; It can not be frightened
by threats; it is a perpetual Institutions
It will outlive the longest trusts; It is
raid in each case only what the courts
allow; it gives valuable advice to beno
flclarles; it Is always In a position ta
ptomptly make sound investments; it
conscientiously carries out the wishes of
testators; It Is never "too busy" to at
tend to the duties of its trusts; It has
specialists for every duty; It treats aU
matters In its care as sacred and confi
dential; It protects beneficiaries from beg.
glng friends and relatives; It has no
friends to reward and no enemies to
punish; It makes prompt and complete
reports to the county courts; It serves Its
own Interests best when It serves its
clients; It is never obliged to, say, "I
dldn"t think"; it bas distinguished, repu
table, well known counsel, officers and
directors, and behind all that it does is
always the potential factor of its great
capital, surplus and undivided profits.
