A NEW PLAN BY OLD INTERESTS.

A Method of Distributing among Moderate

(and wide-awake Small). Investors the Important Profits of Legitimate Timber Investments in Selected Regions,

under "Iron-Clad” Conditions Many of the most substantial fortunes of today are rooted in timber investments of past years. The similar opportunities of today are less frequent, but when they do occur they are as remarkable as they are unusual. They are sure to be due to some unforeseen concurrence of events which force the owner of timber of the highest potential value to sacrifice his holdings for ready cash. It is usual for owners in such cases to present their needs to the James D. Lacey Timber Co., who are thereby enabled by their resources and prestige not only to relieve with cash the needs of the seller (on whatsoever scale) but also to thus acquire for the profit of their clients various tracts and timber rights at figures very greatly below their valus. Our appraisal of such forced offerings is rendered prompt and accurate by reference to the International Timber Record Files of James D. Lacey & Co.. which have been the standard basis of determination of timber values among most large banks for years. Our facilities for re-sale of the timber, at attractive profits, are unequalled. At the suggestion of many minor investors we have arranged a MOST INTERESTING FORM OF INVESTMENT, ENTIRELY NEW in our field, which we nominate

Lacey Profit-Sharing Bonds They extend to a public wider than our usual clientele the exact advantages (and all of them) which heretofore have accrued to the initiated few. It is our belief that they will be genuinely appreciated by many cautious investors who are indifferent to conventional offerings. The legitimate expectations are identical with those which in 36 years of business have governed similar transactions on a large scale of individual investment by the customers of James D. Lacey & Co. We respectfully refer those unacquainted with the meaning of the name of Lacey in timber finance, to any prominent lumberman or timber-owner in this country, and to any bank anywhere which has ever given attention to lumber and timber securities. You have read about the status, prospects and limitations of lumber at this date. Everything WOOD is a value rapidly and automatically enhancing. There never will be timber purchasing opportunities, equalling the few which now, from time to time, become available. Some now in our control compare well with the more notable profit. yielders of the past. (We pay no attention to properties ordinarily offered for public sale.)

Appeal for Orphan Children of French Soldiers who have died in defense of France

It is reported that the number of French orphans who will ultimately need aid will be in excess of 400,000, and that there are at the present time 200,000 in ACTUAL WANT. The stupendous and crushing burden of the war wii git permit the French Government to pay more than 10 francs ($2) per month per orphan, and it is NECESSARY FOR PRIVATE CHARITY TO CONTRIBUTE AT LEAST 15 FRANCS ($3) PER MONTH ADDITIONAL FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF EACH CHILD.

The AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR THE RELIEF OF FRENCH WAR ORPHANS has pledged itself help several thousand orphans during the six months commencing Nov. 1, 1916, and it desires to increase the number as speedily as possible and to extend the period of assistance. It will be doubly helpful to those in need if they car. ve assured at the outset of this winter, which will be exceptionally hard upon France, that fixed aid from Americans can be relied upon to prevent actual suffering among orphans.

The AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR THE RELIEF OF FRENCH WAR ORPHANS has been incorporated under the laws of the State of New York for the purpose of

(1) Raising funds by voluntary contributions to be used for the aid and relief of needy French children whose fathers have lost their lives as the result of the present war in Europe, and

(2) Systematizing and centralizing the collection of funds in the United States for that purpose and their effective distribution in France.

Its membership is divided into (1) Founders," who contribute $500 or more per annum; (2) 'Bene-
factors," who contribute $250 per annum; (3) "Sustaining Members," who contribute $100 per annum, and
(4) "Contributing Members,who contribute less than $100 per annum.

The American Society undertakes, by means of its membership dues and a guaranty fund, to defray
ALL the EXPENSES of management, collection and distribution of contributions for FRENCH WAR
ORPHANS in order that the ENTIRE AMOUNT contributed for the aid and relief of these HELPLESS
CHILDREN may be applied to their needs without any deduction for expenses of any kind, here or abroad.

The AMERICAN SOCIETY solicits contributions to its WAR ORPHANS FUND in order to be able to pledge fixed monthly aid towards the support of as large a number of FRENCH WAR ORPHANS as possible at the rate of three dollars a month for each child.

DONATIONS to the FRENCH WAR ORPH NS FUND should be sent by checks or post office money orders to the order of THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR THE RELIEF OF FRENCH WAR ORPHANS enclosed with a subscription, in the form of the blank at the foot of this announcement, 10 “ THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR THE RELIEF OF FRENCH WAR ORPHANS, 120 Broadway, New York City, ** where all communications should be addressed.
