Huddersfield and District Perfect Thrift Building Society

The 15th ballot meeting of the above society took place on Tuesday evening in the lecture-room of the Y.M.C.A., King Street, Mr. J. Pyrah in the chair. Mr. Pyrah spoke of the great advantages of this society, the subscriptions being small, while the society advanced to the full value of the property. Messrs. C. Dodd and William Stott were then elected scrutineers, and the ballot resulted in No. 213 being drawn, and the owner, residing at North Cross Road, Cowcliffe, became entitled to an advance of £200 for 16⅔ years, free of interest, to be repaid by instalments of £1 per calendar month. Votes of thanks being accorded to the scrutineers for their services, two shares recently bought in by the society were then offered for sale, and the bidding, which commenced at £10, reached £24 per £100 share cash premium, when it was knocked down, and the meeting closed.
