A Kansas man complains thnt since
his daughter has taken music lessons
which ho paid for, sho Insists upon
playing nothing but classical stuff.
When he comes homo tired nnd askB
fpr a little tune ho gets lipthtnR but
musical gymnastics. The wholo fern
Initio part of tho community, ho
thinks, Is n conspiracy tp uplift him
nnd he doesn't want to be uplifted.
It Is Just like fatlier to mako a
complaint like thn.t. Father nover did
take klndy to culture. 1 lo sits dis
consolate lu the drafty kitchen, white
daughter's Jlrowutng circle inert 4n
tho front room. It Is mother's Idea
entirely that ho put on nn uncomfort
able collar In the evening and head
n missionary lecture on Horneo.
i'nthcr's tasts for music stops short
at "Suinnnee lllver" and he knows
almost nothing about the minor poets
and tho pre-raphaelites. Ills art Idea
aro derived from thd" Illustrated Sun
day supplement; ho will not alt In a
Louis XVI chair, and ho cares not
a whit for tho pottery of tho ancient
Chaldeans. Shirt sleeves nnd carpet
slippers aro his conception of, cprrect
evening dress for gentlemen.
There Is llttlo hope haV anything
permanent can ever bo done for
father. When tho millennium comes
he will still be found reading the
newspapers. Btnoklng up tho window
curtains. Impeding progress nnd pay

which stands, not as the total security, but as the mar
gin of security protecting our depositors.
Every dollar of this must be lost before any depositor
can lose a penny.
This is a STJITE bank, operated under the strict
banking laws of Kentucky.
At least four sworn reports are made each year.
Its funds are protected by a modern Burglar Proof
Steel Safe and Vault, and are insured against burglary
and sneak thieves.
Its officers and employees are under bond for the
faithful discharge of their duties.
All of these things, coupled with careful, conserva
tive management, assure the patrons of that supreme
safety which is the prime essential of a good bank.
