A man that makes up his mind
right off may be wrong half the
time, but he's right a whole lot
more than the fellow who has
to have a decision Jerked out of
him with an ox-team. If you
expect to get on in this world,
learn to make up your mind
swift and follow up with swift
action. And haven't you real-
ized that about 90 per cent of
your decisions have something
to do with money? If you have
a Having Account in our bank,
you will have the necessary
funds to back up your decisions
with swift action.

The detective departments of the
Russian government have to deal with
the most skillful secret organizations
I in th# world. The devices at the com-
mand of the secret orders, especially
their methods of communication, are
of the most extraordinary character.
An authority who has made the closest
j study of the Russian prison system
j has assembled these devices. The
members of the secret societies of Rus-
sia assert that they can communicate
with one another In any prison, no
matter how carefully guarded. No
method of prison supervision can pre-
This communication is by a system
: of tapping, either on the floor or walls
, of the cell in which the prisoner is ;
! confined. There are two codes, as de-
1 scribed by the prison authority Ken-
i nan. One Is primitive and cumber-
1 some—namely, to indicate the letters
j in the alphabet by the number of taps,
| as, for example, one for A, five for E,
' ten for J, and so forth. This is a code
of ancient usage. It was found too
slow and complicated. A new system
' was presently devised.
Taking the English alphabet as an
j example, It can be easily Illustrated.
Leaving out one letter, as, for exam-
ple K, and using the letter C wherever
one would use K, the working alphabet
is reduced to twenty-five letters. One
