Extensile Preparations Bein?: Made in the Schools for Appropriate Exercises. Christmas time Is drawing near and every day attractions are more In evidence. The windows containing everything in the way of beautiful presents cause the little ones to stop and feast their eyes; even older ones although pressed for time, waste a few seconds at some new attraction Quite a large number of displays are yet to be made, with reference to windows, yet a stranger can be entertained for many hours sight seeing as the beautifully decorated show windows and numerous attractions promise to be on a more elaborate scale this year than lest. The ex tent of some of these artistic dis plays shows great skill and neat workmanship on the part of the artist, and some represent quite an expense. The social world is preparing for its busy season and wltnin a week, all will be in readiness to enjoy a week of Pleasure ,as Christmas events this year in the magic city promise to be numerous, in fact, never before, have the holidays been recognized with such keen Interest by every one. Already the pupils of the various city schools are rehearsing some selection or studying some feature of a special event, booked for the holidays- The occasion will be observed more extensively than usual in the schools and some of the Xmas exercises will be elaborate in the extreme. The ladles representing the various churches are also preparing for a joyous time for the young people, this enterprise being Invariably patronized everywhere." IN IMPORTANT DECISION. Foreign Bnilding and Loan Associations Can Not Exact a High Rate of Interest. In a suit brought at Anderson, Ind., by the Home Building and Loan association of Illinois to foreclose a mortgage, Judge Ryan sustained a plea in abatement, holding that the building and loan association is an illegal operator, inasmuch as it had not complied with the law which requires foreign corporations operating in this state to file a $100,000 bond with the state to protect investors. Few, it any foreign corporations have complied with this provision of the law,and are therefore doing an illegal business. If the decision of Judge Ryan is sustained by the Supreme court its effect will be far reaching and if taken advantage of will wipe out encumbrances on much property. Another recent decision holds that foreign loan associations cannot levy fines, special assessments and premiums, and can • only collect 6 per cent interest from borrowers of association funds. This decision was recently obtained in a case at Anderson, where a lady borrower alleged that the company claimed she owed 1400 on a loan, while it only 6 per cent interest had been collected, with allowance of interest otf every dollar deposited, the company would be owing her 1200.
