DOWN IN ALABAMA.
McMinnville Men and Money Plant
ed (u a Bank There.
While the star of empire still
holds its proverbial course westward
for many of our people from the hay
seed ranks, some of our shrewd and
alert townsmen are setting their faces
toward the more promising land of
the south. Messrs. Will II. Magness,
Jr., Jas. S. Doyle, and Edgar Mag
ness, all of this place, have purchased
a controlling interest in the Bank of
Attalla, Alabama, a flourishing town
in a rich section of that state, some
fifty or seventy-five miles northesat
of Birmingham. In the reorganiza
tion of the board of directors, which
took place last Week, Mr. Will II.
Magness, Jr., was elected President,
and Mr. Jas. S. Doyle, Cashier. Mr.
Magness will continue in his position
as Vice President of the National
Bank of McMinnville, but will spend
the greater part of his time in Attalla.
Mr. Doyle will, of course, locate per
manently there. We regret to lose
them both from McMinnville, but
congratulate the people of Attalla up
on their acquisition. They are both'
worthy of the utmost confidence, and.
fitted in every particular for the re
sponsible positions they hold.
Though both are young men, they
have been peculiarly successful in
business life, and the Alabama peo
ple will find them agreeable, prompt,
and straightforward gentlemen.
A special from Attalla to the Bir
mingham Age-Herald has this to
say of the transaction :
"For the last eight or ten days a
deal has been on foot that was con
sumated yesterday. The controlling
interest in the bank of Attalla has
changed hands. The stock formerly
owned by T. J. Watkins, William
Hood, J. A. and L. A. May and their
father, ha been bought by a strong
syndicate represented by William II.
Magness, Jr., of McMinnville, Tenn.,
vice-president of the national bank
there. All of the Birmingham inter
est in the bank was included in the
deal except that owned by Jonas
Schwab and F. W. Dixon, of the
Peoples savings bank. As now or
ganized, the bank of Attalla is one of
the strongest institutions in this sec
tion. The new board of directors
consists of William II. Magness, Jr.,
president; J. E. Whaley, vice-president;
J. S. Doyle, cashier; George
Whatley, Edgar Magness, Jonas
Schwab, F. W. Dixon, J. S. Stewart,
and Hugh Carlisle, Guntersville.
"Mr. George Whatley will remain
with the new bank. Attalla is pleas
ed to have this Tennessee capital
come to her assistance with the
help of her Birmingham friends,
who still remain in the directory.
Our neighbors will have to get a
move on them if they want to keep
in sight of us."

Miss Burton la of charming presence
and is highly gifted in her chosen
profession. She is undoubtedly one
of the shining lights in the artistic
world, for she has the advantage of
many so-called stars versatility and
beauty. Her interpretation of the
title role was a relief from the time
worn soubrette parts and was receiv

company supporting Miss Burton is
indeed a superb one and Mr. Leslie
