We regret to advise the destruction by
fire Sunday morning of the bui3-ding
used by us as temporary quarters during
the construction of our new building.
Our vaults are intact and stood the fire
in good shape but on account of dangerous
standing walls and debris which must be
removed, it will be two or three days
before we can gain an entrance. Our stock
of stationery, furniture and fixtures
was completely lost. Having secured the
furniture formerly used by the National
Bank of Commerce we were enabled to open
for business as usual in, the Fewel building
on El Paso Street, and ask our friends and
customers to indulge us for any little de
lays in handling their business until we can
gain access to our records and secure new
