The First National Bank Christmas

The First National Bank of this
city is now giving the people of this
community a novel way to save. They

week, fifteen cents the third week,
and so on increasing your deposit

end of fifty weeks these small sums
put together will amount to $63.75.
It hardly seems real, but you only
need to go into the First National

down the columns of figures to find
out that it is really true that you can

This "Christmas Banking Club" plan
is certainly a lesson in saving and

The place of a bank in a commun

should be. Did you ever stop and
think what we would do if we did not
have a bank in town? A bank, prop

and teacher and supporter of every
enterprise in our community. When
you want a safe place for your money
you can put it in the bank and have
it secure from fire or burglars. If
you are tempted to spend your mon

free from the temptation® of extrava

you have the proper security, you can
go to the bank and get it.

The Trip Through Norway. Sad
News Awaits His Arrival
(Freely translated from Swedish.)
Mockfj&rd, Sweden, Dec. 1, 1915.
To Willmar Tribune:
It was in outer harbor of Bergen
where our last letter was closed. Many
wonderful feelings ran through us as
we faced the end of our ocean voy
age. The band music was beautiful,
the anchor slipped down and out into
the harbor. Through my glass I could
see the large crowd that stood war
ing greetings and waiting at the dock.
No wonder, thought I, that this
town was named Bergen. Some hous
es seemed to hang on the side of the
mountain like a picture on the wall
A smaller boat came alongside and
my neighbor John Lindblad, John
Hjehn, a native of Mockfj&rd from
California, and the undersigned get
into it to make a trip to shore. Walk
ing on the ground felt just as if we
had taken off a pair of skates after a
long skating trip. The first thing
that caught my eye were the small
stubby but quick horses hitched to
two-wheeled carts. We meet large
automobiles, street cars, etc., just like
in a large city in America. Being the
most curious of the trio I took the
lead. We visit both the museum and
cathedral but unfortunately neither
place was open. At the cathedral was
a wonderful growth of vines that
reached away up to the roof, and I
wondered if that was what is known
as "guirlander." Tired we return to
the Bergensfjord to spend the night.
At six in the morning we have break
fast, and at eight o'clock he train
leaves Bergen for Christiania. This
trip is made over what is claimed to
be the most interesting railroad in
Europe. Now we were to see the won
derful "fjail" of which we had heard
so much. The highest point reached
was 13,000 feet over the sea, and there
we were to eat dinner in a tempera
ture of 11 degrees Celsuis cold. My
wife and I took the precaution to put
on our overcoats. The cold bit our
noses although it was absolutely calm. temporary home, where duty had
Then as we resumed our journey the
tops of the mountains seemed to have
lost their heads, between them in the
fjords was the finest skating and the
glittering white snow strained our
eyes. I simply lost myself in the glory
of it all. The sight-seeing and my
over-taxed mind made me weary and
I had a bad headache. When we ar
rived at Norway's capital city I was
sick, and lay down in my room at the
hotel at once. A good night's rest,
coffee in the morning and a grim de
termination restored me to action. I
cannot tell much about Christiania
because our time there was limited
and representatives of the Crown were
awaiting us to inspect our baggage.
We opened our trunks, and received
new papers. The train starts. Soon
we pass the monument that marks
the boundary line between Sweden
and Norway. The trainmen call out
call out Schalottenberg, and now after
thirty-six and a half years* absence
my wife can step on the soil of our
dear old native land. Now we must
open our trunks again, to again "synas
sommarne." In a few minutes ev
erything was passed. Our next stop
was Ludvika, where we changed cars.
I pride myself on being able to use
Swedish fairly well, but here before
the station agent I was stuck to think
of the Swedish name "koffert." He
came to my assistance by using the
English word "trunk." You, who read
this, may laugh, but I did not.
It was six o'clock on the morning
of Oct. 29, when two strangers step
ped off the train at Mockfj&rd. Our
hearts beat faster than usual. Is it
a dream? No, here we are at Mock
jard, the goal of our interesting, but
somewhat tiresome journey. We had
not written a line to anyone about
our coming. People from America
were expected, but whom or when
thev would arrive none knew.
We found our cousin, D. Brandt,
principal of the school. Here we re
ceived the sad news of the sudden
death in an automobile accident of
our brother-in-law. Saddened we made
our way to our old parental home.
After a few minutes we arrive and
can say, "God dag, far!" The eighty-
