A laige financial transaction involving
the con IkUl the Farmers State Bank of
Charter Oak is persistently rumored and
it is stated that several officials of the
Crawford State Bank have purchased the
controlling interest and will virtually
control that institution hereafter. The
death of Mr. D. O. Johnson made some
change in the management of the bank
necessary and the purchase is said to have
resulted.
If the purchase is consummated Chart
er Oak can be congratulated upon secur
ing one of the most solid banking institu
tions in the county, an institution which
will be of great help in the up-building of
the town and its industries. The Crawford
County State Bank has been growing in
influence and importance with every year,
with co-ordinate banks at Schleswig and
Charter Oak it will become still more a
financial factor in the county.
It is further rumored that Mr. C. J.

their Denison friends that Mr. and Mrs.
Kemming will remain in Denison.
