Compound Bank Interest
Leading banks that have savings departments, and the foremost banks given wholly to savings, have within recent years instituted a system by which depositors may get compound interest. The process is simple, and mutually beneficial to the banks and the savers.
Gold And Silver - Other Metals
As nearly as may be determined after careful research and estimate, gold to the amount of nearly $11,000,000,000 has been produced within the limits of history as we know it. About $2,-500,000,000 has been used in the arts, or lost through wear and tear of coins; somewhere around $1,500,000,000 has been exported to Asia and hoarded, and about $2,000,000,000 has been lost in ways now unknown.
Thrift
The dictionary defines thrift as - frugality; good husbandry; economical management in regard to property; prosperity; success and advance in the acquisition of property ; increase of worldly goods; gain; luck; fortune; the condition of one who thrives.
Collection Of Commercial Paper - Negotiable Instruments Law
In making collections of drafts, notes, checks, and other negotiable instruments, the bank to which they are entrusted for collection assumes certain duties and obligations, and for its failure properly to discharge the same it is liable to the depositor.
International Finance And Trade
While United States export trade has for many years shown a balance in our favor, the country was a free buyer with a low selling power. That we had balances in our favor was not because we went after foreign trade, but because the foreign trader was obliged to come to us for things he could get nowhere else, and needed.
Federal Foreign Banking Act
Even prior to the World War, American commerce had been pushing its way into the four corners of the globe. It was true that it had been carried almost entirely in foreign ships, but the thing that seemed to satisfy us for the moment, was the fact that it went, and the manner of its going was something of lesser importance.
Banks, Workmen, And Retailers
During the movement conducted by The National Citizens' League for the Promotion of a Sound Banking System, which led up to and largely assisted in establishing the present Reserve Bank System, that league issued (1912) a book under the title Banking Reform.
Foreign And Domestic Exchange
Foreign exchange is commonly thought to be complicated because some of the principles involved are not familiar. But they are the same as those of domestic exchange, except that in foreign exchange coinage bases have to be equalized. Domestic exchange is free from this necessity.
Problems In Money And Banking
What determines the value of money? That is, the purchasing power of money as expressed by the money prices of other things. There is no such thing in fact as the general purchasing power of money. Money lias, in reality, a large number of different values, expressed by the different quantities of different things that it will buy.
Corporations In General
The growth of business within the past years has been such that its prosecution and development have called for the use of capital to an extent far beyond the purse of any individual. This called for either the partnership or the corporation, that the combined resources of a number of men might be enlisted to carry on the desired projects.
Corporations - Steps In Incorporating
The first step in the organization of a corporation is to decide upon its name. This must be stated in the charter or certificate of incorporation. When allowed, it becomes both the name and the property of the corporation exclusively, and necessary legal steps may be taken to prevent its use or the use of a name so similar as to be calculated to deceive.
Charter Or Certificate Of Incorporation
The different states have prescribed the general form of corporate charters or certificates of incorporation, and the matters that must be set forth therein.
Corporations
After the charter or certificate of incorporation has been duly executed and filed in the office of the Secretary of State and any duplicates or certified copies thereof filed in any other necessary offices, and any required court orders secured, the next step is the holding of the first meetings of the incorporators...
By-laws Of Hopkins Manufacturing Company
Certificates of Stock shall be in form approved by the Board of Directors, both as to Preferred and Common, clearly stating the rights and privileges of each class in relation to the other, and shall be numbered consecutively and issued in numerical order from the stock certificate book.
Law Of The Rhythmic Breath
BREATH IS LIFE. IS it wontedness and use, or perhaps, that unspeakably deadening factor thoughtlessness, that has robbed the pregnant aphorism BREATH IS LIFE of every atom of its profound significance?
Master Key Of Creation
HARMONY is the least known but the most indispensable factor of health and mental serenity; while discord is the be-ginning of all disease, discomfort, and all the family of disorganizing elements; the names of which, you may have noticed, all begin with the significant prefix dis.
How To Gain The Master Key
VERY natural force is ready to work with and for us if we use it intelligently, according to its law. All readers of the previous essays must comprehend now, I think, that the Tattvic forces are the active agents of all Kosmic intelligence and energy.
How To Use The Master Key
THE secret of all success in every under-taking is concentration of all energy and all endeavor upon that aim. Remittent effort, with many irons in the fire sharing attention and strength, is a wasting drain upon time and human energy; and never, unless under rarely fortuitous circumstances, produces more than mediocre results.
Evolution Of The Tattvas
IN the evolution of the Tattvas we trace the evolution of the Soul to its beginning in theinvolution of the Spirit. The one is as in-separably connected with the other as are the interacting energies of the positive and negative life-currents; the out-breathing and the in-breathing of the Divine Spirit (or the thought active and the thought quiescent), upon which all life and motion depend.
Universality Of The Tattvas
IT should be plain to all my readers now that to neglect proper exercise of the lungs by deep, full inhalations of pure, unbreathed air, is a positive self-limitation of vital force which can be justly named slow suicide. The individual thus living, even under the most fortunate circumstances otherwise, never attains the maximum of his or her efficiency and power, and invites every disease.
All Pervading Tattva Akasha
RECENT scientific discoveries which have tumbled century-honored theories from their pedestals to an abyss where we are hastening to bury them in that oblivion of disuse which the world heaps upon its recognized errors, make it important to the student that a little more space be given to pointing out the interesting corroboration of the Tattvic Law which we can find in all of these wonders.
Specific Influence Of The Tattvas
IN the invariability of those characteristics of every Tattva which differentiate one from an-other, we find the reason for the force of habits, and the clue to that inexorable law of like seeking like. This law is set forth in the Bible with stern realism, appearing as so manifest an injustice that to many souls it is a hopeless stumbling block.
Tattvic Influences: Tejas, The Fire Of Life
IT is only natural and in perfect: accord with the harmony which we observe throughout nature that the Tattva which puts us in happiest relations with the universe while we live on the terrestrial plane is the earth element, or Prithivi.
Happiness Vibrations : Apas And Prithivi
THE Tattvic Law of the Universe, under-stood and applied in daily life and thought, makes living under the old regime of blind submission to unknown forces, generally believed to be malefic and always endangering health, an utter impossibility,— really unthinkable.
Atmospheric Currents Of Prana
THE Chinese artist Shakaku, living in the fifth century of our era, laid down six canons of art, of which the first and most important principle concerned itself with The Life-Movement of the Spirit through the Rhythm of Things.
Circulation Of Prana In Our Bodies
THE preceding study of our life-forces has taught the reader what that atmosphere of psychic ether is in which, as even modern science has at last recognized, we dwell. We are now to study the circulation of this ether — the terrestrial Prâna — as it enters the body and passes from one vital center to another...
Manifestations Of Prana
WHAT we know as the manifestations of Prâna are the periodic changes of its center of activity from one vital function to another in unvarying progression, apparently regulated in the order of manifestation by the changes in the flow of the Tattvas.
Planetary Influences Upon The Tattvas
WE have heretofore considered the regular, normal order of the solar and lunar cur-rents of Prâna, and it should be clearly understood by this time that the Tattvic state of these currents is a most important factor in determining the beneficial effects upon the whole physical being of their even, balanced flow in deep, full rhythmical breathing.
Activities Of The Macrocosm In The Microcosm
THE new science declares confidently that we are akin to the stars, meaning thereby that, being composed of like elements though in vastly different states, we have through countless ages evolved therefrom. Yet it would cut us off entirely from that influence now ! And this is the great stumbling block of progress.
About Macrocosmic Activities In The Microcosm
WITH the identification of Saturn as the highest manifestation upon a visible plane of Akâshic activity, the way is made plain for us to read God's handwriting in the heavens, where he plainly discloses the whole scheme of creation — the descent of spirit into matter through the gradually increasing density of the same...
Mercury And The Activities Of The Sushumna
HERMES, as the messenger of God, reveals to us His paternal will, and developing in us intuition—imparts to us knowledge. The knowledge which descends into the soul from above, excels any that can be attained by the mere exercise of the intellect.
