New Yo^k, July 10.?The 'apt;mist ?
who predicted thai prohibition with.
I all its faults would at least help to
raduce' the high cost of drinking had :
bf-tter begin to mo<lsify his views. j
Early ?-eport)s from soft drink sources \
seem to indicate that the tendency is j
going to be just the other way. Irv:
fact, about the only soft cfrhtk that
is not expected to cost more is plain
water?an'd with an ice famine hover
ing in the offing, there is no telling
how long before even a glass of '.ra
ter \\ith a piece of cracked ice in
it will have t.? be rated at a fancy
figrrzw.
Signs that the dry cloud lacks even ;
the silver lining of economy accu-mu- ?
late. hike thirst itself, with each sue- 1
ceeding day of ? drought. Within the
past few days it has become increas
ingly difficult ,to buy a box of rasp
berries or strawberries at almost any
market in town. StaB's that ordinarily
teem with these products at thfe time
of year have had none to offer, r.n:i j
what few there were sold for such
prices that the average pccketbook
shuddered at the thought. And yet
early reports from out-of-town had it
that this was going to be a good berry
year.
It is a good berry year. As fast as
they can ripen and be picked the
berries are all being boupfct up by
soft drink manufacturers1, who nee:l
,hem in their large and growing husi
jicss. So trceat js- uie daTuryd for
berries t-hait manufacturers are sai'J
to be willing to pay almost any pries
for them and the growers can't. begin
to turn "em out fast enough.

To Our Patrons
Alexandria, Va., June 2, 1910.
In line with our progressive banking methods, and to meet the de
mands of our patrons, we are installing on July 1st. an up-to-date Safe
Deposit Department, under the personal supervision of one of our
officers.
This has been made necessary from the fact that a large number
of our depositors owning Liberty Bonds and other securities desire a
safe place for their keeping.
It is our plan to enlarge the number of Safe Deposit Boxes, and
make a rental charge to meet the operating expenses of this Depart
ment. This charge will become effective July 1st, 1919, and a bill will
be sent out at that time to the holders of boxes, and if any desire
to make any change we will be glad to have them call'before the
bills arc rendered for the ensuing year.
