Another of Hickman's old lanI
marks Is to give way to a modem
building namely, the old livery Jmrn
in wflilch Stove Stahr has conducted
a livery business for many years.
Tula property was sold Monday to
W. S. Ellison. Mr. Ellison proposes
to have the old barn torn down at
once and build a nice brick business
house on tho lot which Is 77x198
Until recently, this old shack was
no more than an eye sore, but tho
continual growth of the town brought
tho stable site within range of a
much needed business district; with
It out of tho way, that street will
build up and in a short time some
big stores will spring up in that lo
cality. For CO years this old barn
has stood escaping fires and adding
to the unslghtllness of one of the
most traveled streets of tho city.
Success or Failure?
J. J. Hill says, " If you want to know
whether you are destined to be a success
or failure in life you can easily find out.
The test is simple and infallible. ARE
YOU ABLE TO SAVE MONEY?"
One may be ever so thrifty and succeed in saving, but
if his money is not in the keeping of a strong and safe
bank he is in danger of losing it.
Let this bank be YOUR bank. 3 interest
