The Bee is now the only Re
publican newspaper in the Second
Congressional districts. The Hop
kinsville Banner ceased publica
tion with its issue of date Decem
ber 41I1, and The Bee has bought
the Banner's subscription list and
entire newspaper business.
The Banner, in making its exit,
has given The Bee in its turn
starts in with a will to make good
'Friend Brumfield's words, which
arc, in part, as follows:
We have made a deal with Tub Bee
Publishing Company, of Earliogton, Ky.,
which by the way publishes the only other
Republican paper in the Second Congress
ional district, by which our subscribers will
be taken care of and at the same time we
will'be let out of Iho business honorably
and be free to engage in something at
which we'ean make the support for a family
The Banner's subscription list will be
transferred to Tub Bbb's books; and all
our subscribers will receive Tint Beb from
henceforth instead of the Banner We feel
that after you have read Tub Beb and
know what it is, that tou will thank us for
our service in securing you this paper, to
take the place of the Banner.
iTiie Bee hasonc nt.lbe best equipped
printing offices in this end of the State,
with cylinder press and the latest improved
job presses ana gas motor, owned ant op

' ""We shall endeavor now ancPever
to give our very large number of
subscribers no cause .to regret that
they aresubscriberto and patrons
of The BEt'Therc will be no

anu our tigiit snail continue (o he
for tho principles of Republican
ism, a sound currency, and good
government. And we shall stead
fastly refuse in the future as in the
past to stoop to mean personalities
and offensive partisanship in mat
ters political or otherwise.
With this plain, unvarnished
statement we make our bow to
the aggregate subscribers of the
Banner and The Bee, and enter
upon the work of giving them the
best service and the most news
that can possibly be afforded
through the hearty support we hope
to receive at their hands.

Miss Richardson, we fear, does not

To the credit of Governor Brad

have declined to be parties
to a controversy upon the
question. Miss Bradley, with true
womanly modesty, declined to ac

that his commence in coming
prosperity has been so great that
he had broken the record of a life

"When a Southern man does that,"
he said, "his faith is absolute."
Mr. Thomas is a most capable and
sagacious business man and now
one of the most famous men in the
South, since his recent successful
work as President of the Tennessee
Centennial Exposition, the emi

Not the earth be round or flat,
But what makes a fellow move it
When some one else puts on bis hat?
You may throw bis vest on twisted,
He will let it go at that.
Still no matter bow jou fix it,
He is going to move that hat.

Then his collar and cravat,
Yet yon can't locate exactly
The position of his hat.
You might put bis cuffs on backward.

square dances make you cover half

Twenty dances is the average, you
know. Of these, about twelve are

Branch Banka Would Supply IVodj !
Want-Would Alo Stop tha Cbaap
Tho failure of a fttato bank In Horth
Carolina loaded up "with real eeUte,
specially country property on which
realisation will bo slow," Is interesting
tor BOTeral reasons, says tho New York
Journal of Commerce. It then proceods
to point out the great need of better
banking facilities in the south and the
disadvantages of loaning on real estate
tho only security many southern farm
ers can give.
Tho Journal of Commerco then re
lates tho experience of a southerner who
mode a trip through several northern
.states looking for a town wheroho could
establish n small bank with a reason
able prospect of profit. His observations
satisfied him that tho small bank would
not pay. "When tho crops wcro being
marketed, tho farmers around tho town
where such a bank might be established
would have plenty of money to deposit
and no occasion to borrow. In tho
spring of the year tho farmers with one
accord would doslro to borrow, but
thero would be nothing to lend because
thny had already drawn out their de
posit, Deposits would bo abundant
when thero wero no borrowers, and tho
demand for loans would be good when
thero was nothing but tho bank's cap
ital to loan. .
Ho concluded that practically thoro
was no profit to bo made except tho
profit on the bank's capital, and a cap
ital of 190,000 not in demand, during
tho whole of tho year woujd not afford
enough profit to meet tho expenses of
the business and giro tho banker a
satisfactory income. Tho branch of a
bank of issuo, however, could mako
money under those conditions, and ho
was satisned by his study of tho prob
lom, with every motlvb for reaching a
sound conclusion, that the ono solution
for the financial difficulties of tho south
was branch banking. Tho branches
could circulate tho notes of tho parent
bank, and if tho issues could bo mndo
on genorel assets tho capital of the bank
would be loaned to the farmers and
merchants of tho locality instead of to
tho government, an odvantago difficult
to overestimate. Tho branch would not
bo dependent upon tho local depositors,
or a capital proportioned to its local
business! for tho means of making loans.
Tho parent bank, receiving doposita
through its branches from many local
ities, would bo ablo instantly and at al
most no expense to transfer fufids from
localities -where thero wcro largo depos
its mid therefore, small demand for
loans to localities where tho conditions
Advantageous as tho branch bank
system would probably provo to com
mercial men, it would bo vastly nioro
so to farmers. Merchants aro depositing
and borrowing all tho time. Thero aro
ovory day deposits from ono dealer
which can bo loaned to another, but tho
farmers who lmvo a great deal of money
to deposit at ono season and occasion to
borrow a. great deal af another would
bo vastly aided-by such an equalization
of the demand for loans and tho means
of gratifying them as would bo afforded
by central banks with widespread
Tho political significance of this is
that tho south has no interest in silver
coinago fid such, but took up tho frco
colnitco issuo under tho impression that
it would afford moro 'currency, for
which the. section had an undoubted
need; a banking system that would
afford more currency, and especially
moro and cheaper credit, would fully
satisfy tho sbvh, and tho oheap money
cry would at oabe cease to be formida
