What railrnuils arc to the commercial
world banks are to the liimncial. The
one offers facilities practically unlimited
for the distribution of products, and the
other offers a similar advantage in the
distribution of value. The function of
the bunking system of the country is to
put the mouey of the country just where
it can be used moat profitably, und to
collect small Bums which singly have no
industrial value, and put them at work
The advent of a new institution like
the Merchants and Traders bunk, just
open for business, in Jonesboro, must be
we'ooniod by all, anil it is both an index
and a promise of increasing prosperity.
Vi:bout apology, therefore, we under
take to intiodueo it to our readers.
When or by whom the idea was first
conceived will probably uever be known,
but last fall the people of Jonesboro
found themselves talking about a new
banking establishment that was to be;
and early in November the talk was crys
ta'Uzed into a suburipfn foi stock. The
paper was activuly circulated, and
resulted finally In the enrollment of the

A charter was procured and in De

resulting in the choice of the following
board of directors, men well known to

The building on Cherokee street then
occupied by the postolllce was purchased
for its use, ami preparations made at
once toward opening for business, but it
was not until the first of the current
month that it was able to commence
actual work. The postolllce caused
some delay in finding new quarters, und
it took some time to bull the cavern of
rock and brick which now serves as the
vuult. This 6tructuro covers about
nine by twelve feet on the ground, and
is a solid mass of rock and cement to the
level of the bank floor, five feet or more
above the foundations. Upon this is
reared a double wall of brick with a four
inch ventilating air space between; an
aiched roof is likewise double, the air
space being carried entirely over it
From the upper arch lo the ceiling the
vault is carried up again In solid ma
sonry. It would drive a fire cruy to
ti'nt for an opportunity to ruin the con
tents of such a cave. The front of the
vault, admitting to the interior, is
guarded by a Hull heavy double door of
handsome pattern with combination
lock, a heavy boiler iron door flush with
the Inner face of the wall making a
lead air space between when closed.
This is the security the bunk has to of
fer against fire.
The burglar who prowleth by right
runs upon other difficulties peculiar to
his ctlling. The money and books aro

safe with a profuse display of silver-

Your ear laid close to the metal after
banking hours will detect the faint 'tick,

witli harmlessly, the safe Is 30::3)x50
Inches in size, made of 8 Inch laminated
chilli d chrome steel, that no drill will
cut, and weighs 5210 pounds. The cost
was ft. 000 for this article alone, and
the professional burglar knows its style
well enough not to scratch it, with a tool.
