Trust Company Increases Capital
The Duvall and Perqival Trust
Company last week increased
their capital stock to $200,000,
making it one of the largest and
strongest institutions of its kind
in this part of the state.
The company was founded De
cember 1, 1891, by H. E. Percival
of Burlington, Vt., and W. F.
Duvall of Butler, who formed a
partnership with a capital stock
of $2000. On December 1, 1896,
J. B. Duvall, now the vice presi
dent, became associated with the
firm and the capital stock which
had been increasing each year
was placed at $20000. In March
1, 1907, the firm of Duvall and
Percival was incorporated into
the Duvall and Percival Trust
Company with a capital stock of
$50,000, at that time Arthur and
Homer Duvall were taken into
the firm. From the organiza
tion of the company, np to the
present 10 per cent dividends
have been declared annually and
the balance of the earnings have
been added to the capital and '
surplus until the latter . now
amounts to $50,000.
