We want to call attention to our last Call Statement published in this issue of the World. We are proud of this Statement, as it is the outward evidence of a good clean condition, and shows a nice line of deposits, which fact we surely appreciate. Only in one feature is there room for big improvement, arid that is in the item of deposits. The fault lies, not with us, nor with our depositors, but rather with those that do not deposit with us, and to them we extend a cordial invitation to come in. We want your business, if it is nothing more than cashing cream checks. We have cashed over $7,000.00 worth of cream checks during the last 12 months, and we have always en couraged small things and helped them to grow and prosper. With this statement we have 509 deposi tors, with our deposits a little over $128,000.00, which, divided, gives an average of a little over $250.00 each. Of course this is not the case, but it is a fact that most of our deposits started on very small deposits, which have grown. Many of our good heavy depositors of today are ' the ones we were privileged to help during the hard dry years of 1890 and 1893, and now they are helping us. And so it will be now, for this dry time will not last always and if we stay by, will sure win out in the future just as it has been in the past. If we have got your name on our books as a depositor, we want it. Chase T. Wilson, Chashier The Wa-Keeney State Bank. Fresh pork at Baker's. - - Smoked meats at Baker's.

AT THE TOP OF THE HEAP Champion Hot Spender and Cutup Found at Pittsburg Amuse- -ment Park. - "Talk about your hot spenders and regular dare-devil cutaps," said a Pittsburg motonnan. "but I saw the champion Coal Oil Johnny of the lot a an amuserrent park the other day. We -were standing outside the gate, waiting for the car to fill up. when a bunch of bold young blades came romping out of the park and made for the car. , They were from the coun try, and had been having a high old time with pick drinks and strawberry jiggers, and you couldn't stop 'em with a breakwall. On a of them suddenly broke away from the bunch and made a daah for the front end of the car." but I blocked his way and told him he couldn't get on at this end. " "O, I got the price." he shouted, 'an' don't you think I haven't.' And he hauled out a handful of small change. I insisted on his going to the back end and he put up an awful argument and got all fussed up. Finally he strode back to the rear platform, paid his nickel, and. striding straight through the car with a glare of defiance at me. be stepped off and marched around to the rear again. Slapping down anoth er nickel, he repeated the perform ance, and blamed If he didn't make the circuit six times before we got started, each time with his chin a little "higher as he passed me. His friends cheered him to the echo.. and I suppose they'll be telling out In Bingrille for years tc come-how he socked It to the Pitta burg Railways company." Pittsburg Gazette-Times.

The play was under the supervision of Miss Olive Kackley and was given for the benefit of the Library fund. The play abounded with startling and humorous situations and did not possess a single dull feature: The parts were splendidly taken and the play was a very decided success. The pretty motion songs by a young ladies' chorus in fancy costume led by Miss Olive Kackley and Mr. Eay Everett were very catchy and re ceived hearty encores each time.
