RICHARDSON Druggists. W m GOLDIG & BANKS CONDITION Statistics Compiled By Denver Road of Banks Show Healthy Conditions. Statistics compiled by the "Den ver Road" show that on the date of the last call for the year by the Comptroller of the Currency, No vember 9th, 1905, twenty-five national and six private banks, out of a total of thirty-three on the Denver Road and Wichita Valley, not including Ft. Worth, show in dividual deposits and certificates of deposit to be $5,015,391.42. Of this $268,012.68 represents certificates of deposits, or money loaned by depositors to the local banks.! One town alone shows over $900,000.00 individual de posits, and another $600,000.00. Of the certificates of deposits one town has $141, 195.00 and another $55,380.00, showing that the farmers in those localities have more money than is required for the conduct of their current busi ness. One bank has over a half million dollars on deposit, three over three hundred thousand each and six over two hundred thous and dollars each. These figures do not include deposits of other banks, nor of the government de posits, as it is the intention to show Only the money belonging to the people. The foregoing figures show a healthy and prosperous condition of that part of the state which has received so much attention during the past two or three years. It is not difficult to see why lands have doubled and trebled during the past two years. Any country In which the individual deposits exceed ten thousand dollars per mile of railway must possess more than ordinary merit. It should not be overlooked that the foregoing figures represent a period when the products of the Panhandle country has just begun to move. If figures were obtained for the present time it is quite safe to estimate an addition of two to three million dollars to the figures shown above would not be far wrong. umarill B. RKKDIvR II. H.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS The Value of Even a Letter as a Remembrance & To the Folks at Home. & Canadian bridge election Jan uary 2.

At ELLIOTT'S CONFECTIONERY. 11 11 f I N CHOOSING YOUR CHRISTMAS GIFTS try and do so with some regard to the needs of those for whom they are intended. The shops are full of pretty trifles, and it is possible to please everybody from grand mimma down to the littlest baby. Do not be discouraged if the amount you can afford to ex pend is of the smallest. Dispatch each little gift with a loving sentiment, and it is sure to be welcomed and appreciated. Those who love you will love your gift, no matter how small it may be. So don't feel unhappy because the gifts seem cheap to you. It would be vry nice to have a full pocket as well as a full heart; but if you can't have both be satisfied with the latter, for it is better of the two. Some of you at this glad Christmas tide are far from home. Perhaps you can't afford to go home, and perhaps you can't even afford to send home any gifts. ' But there is one thing you can all afford to do, and that is to write a Christmas letter. It isn't always easy to keep up the home correspondence. At the end of a long day's work one is too tired to do any thing but tumble into bed And on Sunday well, the day is over before it seems half begun. So between one thing and another we get into shockingly careless habits regarding letter-writing. But the people at home never forget the absent ones, and every day brings with it the hope of a letter from the son or daughter. There is never a day of the year that your mother does not breath a blessing for your welfare. She will value a loving, cheerful letter from you just as highly as though it were a present. Don't forget to make the letter as loving as possible. Let her see that you think of her and loye her and ap preciate all that she has done for you. Tell her what you are aoing, how you are getting on. and how vou would love to be with her. Write so that she will receive the letter Christmas Day. You know the beautiful thing about Christmas is not the actual gift, but the kind feeling that prompts the desire to give. That same spirit can inspire vou to write a beautiful letter. Don't feel that the gift of a Christmas letter is not worth while. It is very rruch worth while. After you have written to your family you may think of some lonely man or woman to whom a Christmas letter would be a great joy. Just the knowledge that some one thought of them at this happy season of the year would cheer them. Write all the Chnstrrus letters you can afford to. Every one of them will give a thrill of happiness to some one cN. ...1 (lifts for the Poor. Under the auspices of the Pas tor's Association of this city gifts of both money and other useful ar ticles will be received at the various churches upon the evening of their Christmas exercises and entertain ments. The entertainments at many of the churches will be on Monday evening, though the Presbyterian, and probably one or two others, will hold their exercises Saturday evening.

They will reside at the old homestead where Mr. Mar shall was raised. Wo have no hes tancy in saying that the Panhandle country suffers a great loss in the departure of this energetic, vigor ous and progressive citizen. He was a pioneer of those who prophe sied a great future for the Panhan dle and his articles extolling the richness and wonderful possibilities of this section have been raed from one end of the country to the oth er and have been a great factor in bringing so many people to this beautiful section. While regret ting his departure we are glad to know that 'he still retains landed interests in this country, retaining his ranch lands of 5,280 acres, which will necessitate an occasion al visit to Channing, and it is more than probable that when he does come he will be accompanied by people who will cast their lot with us. Yet, for all this, we exceed ingly regret to see him go, and his many Panhandle friends will join us in wishing him and his good wife bon voyage, with a hope that the glamour and fascination of the plains will yet draw him back to us again.
