Depository v Surplus $50,000 BARBOURVILLE, KENTUCKY The year 1921 ha3 been the roost prosperous year, so far a3 net earnings are concerned, during the twenty years, since this bank was organized. It ha3 always been the policy of this bank to do the very best for our depositors possible, which we believe has been fully demonstrated in the past. The First National Bank was the first to pay interest on time deposits, which we have been doing for more than twelve years. The Bank has grown from a small beginning, to be one of the strongest Bank3 in Kentucky, and we very much appreciate all of our friend3 who have stood by us during the times of our prosperity. The board of directors, who always have the depositors interest at heart have directed me to pay' 4 interest on time deposits, beginning January 1st., 1922. Certificates of deposit now outstanding will draw Zf0 until. January l3t,, andafter that date we will allow 4.

The boys of the National Guard who have been on duty at Newport, Ii'v. nnrl who hnvfi hefin sent home to re-enter school, have had a lively time while on strike duty. The for eign element at Newport was very obstreperous and even dangerous. The ladles of tho gentlemen who are on strike were armed with hatpins and the gentlemen with railroad spikes as well as guns. On New Year's night the strikers fired some , 400 shots Into tho plant and had the machine guns turned onto them. ' The terrible cold was hard on tho i young fellows hut they did their duty like goodmen and true. Orders , were not to shoot the hatpin ladles , but to slap thorn over If necessary. One of their stunts was to try and, wheedle cartridges from the boys as souvenirs, to be used later against ( them. Some of the individual ex-1 perlences wero valuable as teaching ' quickness of decision as well as self control. Barracks have been built I and it is not known when the re mainder of the boys will return. 11 A. At. "An Ordinary Alan Reaching the Highest Achievement in Life."
