The question is, what kind of sparks

The brain, like a battery, must be supplied with certain elements to gen

phate of potash. If any of these are lacking in the daily food, brain and body

Are any lacking? Listen! "Water and albumen are plentifully supplied in
ordinary food, but phosphate of potash—together with other mineral elements
—is almost wholly lacking in white bread and all white flour products.

The Method of Providing for the Re
payment of a Loan
Every now and then the plain man
who has saved a little money and
wants to invest it so that he will get
a reasonable and safe return runs I
against a nest of terms which are be
wildering and all but meaningless. I'm
afraid he usually passes by without
taking the trouble to understand them.
Take the word "amortization." [
hold that it's no shame to any man
nc*t to know what that word means.
And yet to investors the word is highly
"Amortization'' means simply the
method of providing for the repayment
of a loan. If vou lend me SIO,OOO,
which T promise to repay in ten years,
J you have a right to be interested in
my plans for meeting the demand fur
the SIO,OOO which you expect to tn;ike
upon me ten years hem-e.
So I,say to you:
"I am going to amortize that SIO,OOO
debt in this way: Out of my earnings
every year I'm going to set aside S9OO.
'Each year I will set the S9OO to work
; enrning something too. At the end of
ten years the fund will amount to just
enough to discharge my debt."
j Y'ou will find that specialists in
! bonds use the word a great deal. They
: know better than anybody else its im
portance. They realize that a borrower
j of money for a long term of years is
very apt to forget to make provision for
Certain lenders of money on long
1 terms insist upon the borrower's taking
I out a life insurance policy big enough
j to meet the debt in case of death before
the debt becomes due. Generally the
longer a debt has to run the more im
1 portant becomes the question of ''amor
; tization."—John M. Dskison in Chicago

Kerschner Brought Original Gorman
Organization to This Country
Sunbury, o<'t. 9.—Eire of undeterm
ined origin yesterday, destroyed the
home built by Karl Kerschner here, a
Herman, who came to America in 187"
bringing with him a band of music of
fortv pieces, which was the original
German band in America.
Kerschner, after he built the home,
started a large vineyard. He quartered
his band and trained it there for more
than a year, when he started out on a
concert tour.
One of the pieces lie played was
called "The Burning of Moscow." To
illustrate it fireworks were exploded.
At Allentown, Pa., the firecrackers set
lire to the. opera house and caused a
$7 5,000 blaze and broke up the band.
Kerschner returned to his home and
died of a broken heart.
The property is owned by Jacob
Kerschner. Mrs. Kerschner was asleep
on the second floor and escaped by
