A Correction
Our readers will observe a second
publication of the Statement of the
Bank of Crested Butte. In the state
ment ■ published a week or so ago a
transposition of figures made their
individual deposits show seventeen
thousand and some dollars, when the
amount should have been seventy-one
thousand. Errors will occur even in
well regulated shops like this, but it
Is well that they can be corrected as
in this case.
While on the subject, we would ad
vise our readers to give careful at
tention to these statements and they
will observe that Crested Butte has
one of the strongest and best banks
in the country. Taken item by item
their present statement is a credi
table one and we do not blame them
for feeling sore over an error that
dwarfed their deposits over fifty
thousand dollars.
New Coal Mine Opened in Baxter
A large force of men and teams
were put on at the Crested Butte
Coal Company’s mine in Baxter
Gulch, last week in hopes of getting
the mine in shape to run this winter.
They have a nine foot vein of bitu
minous coal.
Engineer Elder Is on the ground
and the work is progressing rapidly.
This week Jackson Mooney with the
help of others will start to build a
new tipple and men are at work now
grading for the railroad which will
be about one mile in length. This
company has been operating coal
mines In this vicinity for a number
of years and it is expected that this
mine will soon be shipping coal.

of Picher, Okta.. a prominent business
man, says the next time he comes here
ho will come down in the daytime and
will walk down the middle of the
street. The other evening he came
here on business and while walking
under n large tree near the Methodist
church s man stepped out, and point
ing a revolver at him said: "Stick ’em
up or I’U kill you." Noticing the hand
holding the revolver was shaking. Mr.

for a dollar or two, would you?" After

The Cost of Upkssp
A run-down business is like a dilapidated hmuw.
the cost of putting either one back on its feet is
greater than it would be to start all over again.
To let the telephone run down, in quafity of terviof
or in mechanical equipment, would mean far mpfe
than a loss to the telephone company, It would mean
a loss in business to every user or the telephone.
It has always been the policy of ttyf Bell Telephone
Company to keep its property in su&h repair mat its
subscribers receive the greatest possible Deneflt.
But to keep things “ship shape” requires moqw.
more money today than ever before. Materials con
more and wages have increased in an attempt to keep
pace with the increased cost of living.
The Bell Telephone Company is working hard to
make ends meet, to keep its property in proper oper*
ating condition—and to pay wages which will seeing
the most intelligent ana loyal service for the tele
phone user.
YOUR loyalty to the telephone will make it easier
for us to serve you.
