with pleasure this bank extends congratulations to the'peo
ple of this state on the opening of another artery of commerce. It
demonstrates that the large railroad interests have confidence in our
permanent growth as a wealth producing section of the natioti.
It shows that they are confident the people who till our fertile
acres are not experimenters, but men who will get a continuous in
crease in their crops by more intensive farming methods and thus
bring them ample returns on the hundreds of thousands of dollars
they have expended in building this new railway.
The growth of North Dakota is reflected in the growth of.this
bank, which step by step, has advanced from a small beginning un
til it now occupies a high place among the financial institutions of
the state. You are cordially invited to become identified with us
in any of our branches—Commercial Banking, Savings Accounts,
