County Treasurer Fowler Vindicated
•Ex Treasurer J. R. Fowler, of
Columbia county, who, it is claimed
by the State Treasurer, was short over
S4OO in his accounts in not returning
that amount of State tax, had a con
sultation with Attorney General Mc-
Cormick at which interview Mr.
Fowler was able to make a satisfactory
explanation of all but a small balance
of $45.50 of the shortage charged
against him. After a careful search
through his papers Mr. Fowler has
found a receipt for the latter amount,
which wipes out the claim of the State
against him.— Harrisburg Telegraph.

Tfee Kind You Have Always Bought
Had Nothing to Say-
You want to be a soldier, Tom ? \yell I don't
blame you, lad,
The fever that has hit you now once mon
keyed with your dad.
I know exactly how you feel, you're achin'
for a scrap,
An' want to go an' help to wipe ol' Spain
clean off the map.
When I was young an' full o' nerve in eigh
I wasn't half content till I was coupled to a
An' now that your a-feclin' in that same ol'
An' want to emulate your dad, I've not a
word to say.
I hope you've reckoned up the cost, an'
counted it up well,
Fur war, as Gen'ral Sherman said, ain't fur
removed from hell J
You'll find it ain't no picnic, Tom ; you'll
soon find out that you
Won't have a bit o'nerve too much in pullin'
of you through.
It ain't no circus day affair when shells be
gin to bust.
An' comrads lay in blood an' pain a-writhin'
in the dust,
An' bullets, just like maddened bees, zip
past in fiendish way,
But if you have a mind to go, I've not a
word to say.
I guess your mother won't object ; I heered
her say last night,
She wished she only was a man so she could
go an' fight
• T'll be an orful trial, though, fur her to see
An' one that's mighty apt to break her pore
old mother's heart.
Jes' tell her in a manly way that you arc
bound to go.
That you're true blood American from top
clean down to toe.
An' if she asks you what I think, jes' tell her
that's O K.
That we have had a talk an' I have nothin'
more to say.
I want to tell you, honest, boy, that this
ain't no surprise,
I've seen the sparks of loyal pride a dancin'
in your eyes,
An' I've been waitin' for a week to hear you
make your talk,
An' show your daddy that you come of good
ol' fighting stock.
An' now, to close the matter up, I'll tell you
Your daddy would of knocked you out or 4
you'd a walloped him,
If, when you'd heard your country call, you'd
made a coward play—
I'm proud o* you, God bless you, boy! That's
all I've got to say!

THB HRBT RATIONAL BANK-
From the date of its foundation
thirty-four years ago, up to the present
time the First National Bank of
Bloomsburg has enjoyed the highest
reputation as a sound financial institu
tion. It has always been conducted
on careful business principles by
representative men. But while it has
been the pride of the town financially,
there were many years that it was not
an object of pride in its furnishings
and general appearance. It had but
one room and that too small. Its
furniture was by no means costly or
extravagant. Until a few years ago,
when an attempt was made to rob the
bank by a man who calmly demanded
the cashier to hand over SSOOO, there
was no screen on the counter. In
short, there was hardly another bank
in the state so cheaply fitted up, and
so poorly protected as the First
We allude to these facts now, not
byway of reflection, but in order to
show the contrast between the past
and the present. Today this bank
stands in the front row in all its equip
ments. Within a couple of years it
purchased all the outstanding inter
ests in the Knorr & Wintersteen
building. An addition has been
erected fully as large as the old build
ing. The two upper floors contain
twenty-one office rooms, and the first
floor is occupied by J. R. Townsend's
Star Clothing House, one of the finest
store rooms in town, and by the Bank.
The entire building is finished in hard
wood. There are closets on each
floor, with tiled floors and wainscoting,
and there are tiled floors at each
entrance to the building.
The banking room is enlarged. It
has a metal ceiling tastefully decorated,
tiled floor, handsome mantel and fire
place, oak paneling on the walls, a
counter running the entire length of
the room with a handsome screen.
The desk of the paying teller is sur
rounded by an iron screen on all
sides and top. Back of this room
are the office of the Cashier, and the
Directors' room, and two rooms for
the use and convenience of the friends
and patrons of the bank, all of which
are nicely furnished.
The vault contains safe deposit
boxes for rent, and the entrance is
guarded by time locks and doors pro
vided with all the safe guards against
burglars that are known to modern
The officers ot the bank are E. W.
M. Low, President; A. Z. Schoch,
Vice President; E. B. Tustin, Cashier;
The Directors are the three above
named, and C. R. Buckalew, and M.
The building as a whole is the most
complete in town for public purposes,
and while there was no extravagant
expenditure in its construction, every
thing was done that is necessary for
the comfort and convenience of the
tenants and the customers of the
