in order to increase the efficiency of
its working force and to reduce un
necessary labor the Enterprise Nation
al Bank has just puchased a modern
combination adding and posting ma
chine. The machine will be propelled
by t-t:ieity and will do a wonderful
variety of woii. A special formx of
ledge: goes with the outlit. so that
ayes may be taken from the ledger
and inserted in the mac hine which
adds and prints the entries as the op
erator touches the figures en the key
board. It has one feature that will
be found objectionable by some cus
tomers of the bank. It will "balk" on
the entry of a check where there are
no funds in the bank to cover it, show
ing its opposition to overdrafts. The
machine has not yet been placed in
utcration, because all of the lixtures
have not yet arrived but it will be
ticl:i.g away at an craly date.

So old fashioned is this correspond
ent that oftentimes no one under
tands. For instance, it was suggest
ed last week for Vour readers to get
the "7th Grade Reader" and enjoy a
di.t intly Southern piccf of poetry, y
a Southern )oet, Russell. Well, one
mother tried but vainly! IHer little
daughter.asserted "they had no 7th
(irade readers". less your heart,
mothers, call for ttp-to-date "Litera
ture for 7th grade"-(that'll fetch it!)
and forgive an old woman's lapse in
to the speech of her childhood-we
called 'em readers! The poetry in
question is in negro dialect but so full
of swing and lilt to be easily read and
quaint sayings that would be thought
of by none but a Southern negro. For
instance the old darkey belabors his
oxen for going so slow and yells
"You mus think I is daid and dis do
huss yore's dragging!"
