operation of Mom 02 People.
Considerable Witt-rest his been
taken among our citizens in Uie
matter of the p.ir-'lia-e of Mon
roe Motel Building. It lias already
become known that the deal was
closed several weeks ago through D.
K. Yowell. but no one seemed to be
advised as to the purpose of the
purchasers. The parties who are to
become the ownprs of the property
are R. L. Wilson and Eugene
Schweer. Mr. Wilson is Cashier of
the First National Bank. Windsor,
and Mr. Schweer is Asst. Cashier of
the Citizens Bank at Windsor. Mr.
Wilson is not unknown to Monroe
City and vicinity, as he is the son
of H. C. Wilson of near Spalding
and a nephew of F. M. Wilson of
this city. He belongs to an old
and substantial family, his mother
being a member of the Waters
family, so well and favorably known
in Ralls County, His banking ex
perience has been thorough and
successful, and while Mr. Schweer
is unknown to this locality, he has
Bpent all his business career in a
bank-one of the oldest and largest
in Henry County and belongs to one
of the best business families in
Southwest Missouri His qualifica
tions are of a very high order both
as a banker and a business man.
These gentlemen have the utmost
faith in Monroe City as an availa
ble place for a new institution that
will give it additional banking facil
ities, and are prepared to project it
along modern business lines and to
give to it character and tone neces
sary to insure success from the
start. Already plans are under way
by which the corner room of the
building purchased will be devoted
to a National Bank, to be capital
ized at not less than $30,000.00 nor
above $50,000.00. As soon as possi
ble this room will, under the direc
tion of an architect be remodeled
into a strictly modern banking
room, and be very complete in
A large amount of the stock will
be placed among the people of the
community who may wish to in
vest. It will be impossible to sup
ply the demand for this stock,
hence it must be placed where it
will be of greatest value and assist
ance to the new institution. Every
care and courtesy possible will be
observed In the distribution of the
shares so that the interests of the
largest possible number may be
conserved. It will have a substan
tial make up and the directorate
will be placed in the hands of Mon
roe City men, and such men as
have a well known and successful
career, so that there may be no
doubt as to the strength and integ
rity of the institution.
Turkeys for Christmas,
We begun on Monday buying
turkeys for Christmas. We are at
the time that this paper is printed
paying 16c. We do not know wheth
er we will continue to pay this
price or not. Will say that some
who got their turkeys on the mark
et only a few days before Thanks
giving were very badly disappoint
ed. We bought our turkeys early
and quit buying Thanksgiving tur
keys early, consequently did not
sustain a loss. It is our intention
to buy early for Christmas.
