Ofl. one ArbuckleV ARIOSA comet in I Curtis and his friends were smooth enough to keep the opposition scattered. Curtis is supposed to represent the railroad interests. A bill has been introduced in the legislature which provides that "the assessors of the state shall place their seal on all notes, mort gages and interest drawing mer cantile papers, and snail keep a record of the same. All notes, mortgages and interest bearing mercantile paper not so stamped shall be null and void." Now, what do you think of that?

This is the great reason that Des Moines banks are growing so rapidly. Advertising in the banking busi ness is a new departure, but it is accomplishing wonderful results. A local banker who has been us ing page after page of display advertising in the local newspa pers recently said: "Through our advertising I believe we have increased our number of depositors one-third in the past few months." Pittsburg banks are spending about a million dollars every year in display advertising. The big newspapers of that city contain more advertising from the banks in towns than from the depart ment stores. The success that has followed their efforts has led Des Moines men to follow in their wake. The enterprising bankers of the city are quick to see the possibilities of advertising in ed ucating the people to save. The others will soon be forced to fol low in their footsteps or suspend.
