* Get Acquainted with the Banker. *
Wo hope many of our farmers
are starting bank accounts now that
money for the year's crops Is com
ing in. A man is more likely to savo
his money If he has started putting
his surplus in a bank; and it is a
great convenience to bo able to make
payments by check. When you
pay a bill with cash you may have
no record of Its payment; but a re
turned check with the payee's en
dorsement on tho back constitute; a
good receipt. Not all farmers who
have started bank .accounts however,
are as careful as they should be 111

ARE BANK'S PROFITS
Wall Street Hanker Tells of Huge Tro
ths Made by First National Hank of
Washington, Jan. 9.?Enormous
profits of the First National Hank of
New York were recounted today by
Goo. F. Baker, chairman of the board
of directors of the bank, as a wit
ness before the house money trust
committee. Mr. Baker furnished the
committee with records showing that
since its organazatlon in 1863 with a
capitalization of $500,000 the bank
lias made profits amounting to more
In the four years since 190S, Mr.
Raker told the committee, the bank
had paid dividends of 226 percent or
more than twice the total capitali
zation which is now $10,u00,000.
When the capital was increased to
that amount in 1901 a special div
dond of $9,500,000 was declared, to
enable the stockholders to take up
in order to provide $10,000,000 of
capital for tho organization of the
First FiOuritios company to take over
the business "which the bank could
not do under the law" Mr Baker said
"a special dividend of ten million
was declared." This was in addition
to the regular yearly dividends.
18,550 Ter (cut Dividend.
Samuel Untormyor, counsel for the
committee, from the figures suppll
I id by Mr. Baker, calculated that since
ho assumed the presidency of tho
First National in 1873, that institu
tion has paid dividends of 18,550 per
cent on its original capitalization.
Mr. Baker flatly opposed tho sug
gestion by Mr. I'ntermyer that na
tional banks be roqutrod to make
public their assets in order that de
positors anil stockholders might know
the nature of securities hold by the
hanks, the witness declaring that he
saw no possible good that could come
of such a provision. That there is
10 impropriety in OHO man holding
'ircciorship in two or more poten
tially competitive banks, railroads or
industrial corporations was another
stand taken by Mr. Maker. Mr.Un
tormyor rovlowod with him a long
list of railroads, in which he was a
director some of which the lawyer
held were potentially competing lines
Mr. Baker declared that it was rather
an advantage to hold such director
ships, because differences between
the companies thus lie readily ad
"Such a situation," he continued,

ACTS ON THE LIVER.
Dodson's Liver Tone Livens Up the
Liver?Is More Than a Mere Laxa
Calomel was for years the onJy
known medicine that would stimulate
tho liver. But calomel is often dan-|
gerous, and people are not to he blam
ed for being afraid of it.
Within the last few years many med
icines have been put out to be used
Instead of calomel, but their effect is
on the bow.ls?not on the liver. The
Damons Drug Co. says that the only
real liver medicine to- actually take
the place of calomel is Uodsjfn's Liver

In the death of Mr. Thomas Jeffer
son Little, which occurred Sunday.
December 1st, 1912, Laurons county
has lost one of her very best citizens.
Mr. Little lived to a ripe old age.
He WOUld have been 73 years of age
had he lived until February 1st, 1913.
For the last six years before bis death
he was incapacitated on account of a
stroke of paralysis, but bore his bur
den with fortitude. Finally he was at
tacked with Brlght's disease and suf
fered greatly from a swollen foot,
which was attacked by blood poison.
His sufferings must have been very
great, but throughout the long days
of bis illness he was perfectly resign
ed to Qod'B will and was able to tell
those who catne to see hint in his last
illness that he was confident of Iii?
salvation and asked them to meet him
in heaven. Throughout all of his pain
ful illness he did not murmur.
Mr. Little was a good Boldier during
?he war between the States, lie serv

He was a consistent member of
Methany Presbj'terlnil church and was
loved and honored by a wide circle of

of the newspapers in ami out of (In
state that the national corn show Ik
going to > o one of the biggest things
tha' ever came to the state of South
Carolina. We are all glad to kllOW
that this great show is coining, ami
we think that every farmer with his
hoys and girls ought to attend if ho
possibly can do so. You will sc
something that you may never have
the pleasure of seeing again and
then those Who base nOVCI' seen
the city by the Conga roe will
have that pleasure and many other
places of Interest that these little boys
and girls can toll about to their chil
dren, at the first and perhaps the
last national corn show in South Car
olina. The state fair people have the
building for the grand display of this
great show and they are going to do
their part to make it one of the great
est corn shows on record.
There ought to be a monument plac
ed at the head of the men who stall
ed this great work, you call demon
stration farm work. They havo done
more for the farmers and their in
terest than anything Imaginable. Then
comes Jerry Moore. It Is worth the
trip to go down and talk fanning to
little Jerry. You remember the west
went wild over Jerry, whl'e the most
of us depend on the west for our
corn. If we will attend this great
show see Jerry and let him give us his
plans we will put the west out of
business as far as South Carolina Is
concerned. We are like Col. .1. II.
Wharton, we are going to see that
show if It is the last we ever sec.
We wonder If "Aunt Kate" Isn't go

does wo can say this much: "When
she gets back to Madden yon notice
what she says in The Advertiser, and
you see what you have lost by not
going. We always look forward to
'Aunt Kate's' letters. They are very
Instructive as well as interesting.
She wields a fluent pen."
