To be robbed while dropping money Into

papers on Sixteenth street.
No, he was not robbed In the Taber

Tabernacle on on of the Uutt tlaya of tha
meeting. He was selling The Ut'( spe
cial edition of Sunday sermon. He asked
the "friend to sell them for htm while
be went Into the tabernacle and heard
Billy BunJay and contribute his "widow's
mtut" to the evangelist.
Whca the collection bos came round,
McCuna dug deep, and scratched hard
through his pockets to rake up t& cents.
"It's sure worth that," he said te hlmsolf.
when be had heard the sermon.
Then he went back to his "friend' who
bad been selling the papers.
The fricsnd waa gone. Th papers were
guns. And what money the friend had
ftolluctad from the sale of the papers was
gone with him.

Soalt old people need Cascarets. One

Age Is not a time for harsh physics.

Convertible at the option of the holder, at maturity into one-year 6 Gold Notes of the Italian
Government, par for par, which in turn will at maturity be convertible, at the holder'!
t option, into 10-ycar Syifo Gold Bonds of said Government, par for par.
We regard the credit of the Italian Government as excellent and these
notes as unusually attractive. The total annual Interest charges on
the national debt amount to only about $3.28 per capita. The two
conversion privileges give Important rights of which the purchaser
Can avail himself later If he desires.
Italy, with a population of about 36,000,000, has today a national debt of about $3,247,400,000,
or about $90 per capita.
The Government owns about 76 of the railroad mileage of the country. It also owns all
telegraph and substantially all telephone lines. These public utilities represent an in-;
; ' vestment of about $1,396,000,000. If this portion of the debt, represented by productive
assets, be deducted, the net national debt would be $1,851,300,000, or $51 per capita.
Italy's record for the last fifty years has been one of notable achievement. It has shown con-'
tinuous increases in population, wealth and education, extraordinary gains in commerce
. and industry and a strong and steadily improving national credit. The year before the
2 war its Syiylg consols sold as high as 98, placing its credit among the highest of European;
nations. v ' - i

The 10-year lx bonds, issuable under the convertible privilege, will be payable in lire as well
as in dollars, which will give the opportunity to Italians to purchase them to send home,",
and in our opinion will mae them attractive to investors in Italy at the close of the war.)
The proceeds of these notes will be expended for merchandise and
commodities purchased by the Italian Government In this country.
Temporary negotiable receipts will be delivered pending preparation of the definitive notes.
We shall be glad to receive applications for these notes
through any bank or trust company in the United States. '
