The stockholders of the Farmers
Bank held their annual meeting in
the bank Thursday, the time for hold
ing the annual meeting having been
changed from the latter part of
March to the latter part of December
of each year. This change was made
so the fiscal year would conform to
the calendar or tax year. Notwith
standing the season of unusual de
pression through which we are pass
ing, the bank had a very satisfactory
year. The institution has been wisely
and conservatively managed and is
on an absolutely sound basis. The
bank holds a very large reserve and
does not owe a dollar for borrowed
money. The officers and directors
were re-elected for another year.

Lott School News.
Santa Claus appeared at our school
last Friday morning, December 23,
and drove away all shadow of doubt
from the children's minds. They no
longer asked "will Santa come this
year?" for there on one side of the
school room was a lovely tree laden
with toys, candy and fruit.
Even the fathers and mothers who
had been invited by their children,
forgot "hard times" for the time be
ing and with their faces' wreathed in
smiles and their hearts filled with de
light, they joined the children with
their shouts and yells.
An interesting Christmas program

were given out. The program was as
