Your courtesy in mentioning the Magazine when writing will be appreciated Confidence is based on knowledge When you buy bonds you become a money-lender-not a shareholder. If you are well advised, your money is loaned at a minimum of risk. From government bonds down, you already know of bonds the safety of which is unquestioned, but the interest is small, because your confidence and the con fidence of every one else is great. Confidence is based on knowledge. We know of certain bonds that are paying a much higher interest-from 4' to 6 per cent-because your knowledge and your neighbor's knowledge does not include them. If the world at large knew them as well as we do, they would sell at a higher price, and the yield from them would consequently be smaller. It is all a matter of confidence based on knowledge. May we suggest that you go to your bank and inquire into our reputation and standing; then, if satisfied, write us fully as to the amount you have to invest; the conditions of the investment, whether for yourself or for some one for whom you are responsible; whether it is prob ably to be an investment of long stand ing or one that may require quick con version into cash. Tell us these things and anything else bearing on the sub ject, and we will take pleasure in ad vising with you and making suitable recommendations. J.sk for Latest PriceList, No. A. N.- 58 N. W.
