Longview Bank Tails
Farmers of tke Community Were Chief
Depositors W. W. Hall
Appointed Receiver.
Il'l'he collnpse ot the Longview
Bunk which occurred Saturday,
was a surprise to the people of
that section of the county, as it
was thought the institution was in
good iioam-ial condition. When
the crash came the depositors,
especially those of the farming
class, could not believe it uttil
they heard that some of the bunk
uiUcials were in the clutches of
the law.
The Longview bank was organ
ized some six months ago with a
capital of SIO,OOO. Hardin Adams
of Prairie, was president, and
Leonard Brandon, cashier.
It is said the suspension of the
Prairie, French Camp and Brooks'
villc banks, of which Adams was
president, had something to do
with the failure of the Longview
bank.

Say Tango Dancing Has Not Been In
dulged in—Object to Official
Etpiooage.
To tlii< Honorable Hoard of Aldermen,
City of Sturkville:
Gkkti.emkn ;—Whereas, at a
recent meeting of your body, cer
tain resolutions were submitted by
certain citizens of StarkviHe re-,
gorduig the supervision of public
and club dances by persons vested
by yon with such authority, and
Whereas, we believe the snlnuif**
sion of said resolutions grew out
of misinformation of said citizens
regarding the nature of the said
dancing indulged in ut these
dances, and,
Whereas, it is a well known
fact, that the so-called "animal
dancing” ("Turkey Trot,” "Griz
zley.Bear,” "Bonny Hug,” "Tan
go” and kindred dances) have not
been indulged in at any dances
given by the A. & M. College
Clubs, since it was found that the
invited chaperones objected to
them, and
Whereas, we feel that such an
action ns requested of you in said
resolutions would he a reflection
upon the good judgment of the
dancing contingent of the A.& M.
College as gentlemen, therefore,
We do respectfully submit these
resolutions and ask that we may
not bo embarrassed by any action
on your part that would cause our
dances to be placed under the
chaperonage of public officials and
thus have taken, from them their
present dignity and propriety.
Respectfully .Submitted,

under a bond.
Brandon, the former cashier,
left Longview three or four days
ago, severing his connection with
the bank, intimating to some
friends that he was going to Mem
phis to attend lectures at some
medical college.
He is charged with embezzle'
rueut, and a warrant was sent to
Aberdeen asking for his arrest.
Hon. W. W. Magruder, attor'
ney for the bank, states that an
examination of the books show
them to be in a complicated condi
tion.
Bass was placed under a bond of
$2,000, which was promptly fur
nished, and Brandon gave bond
in the sum of $2,500 at Aberdeen.
The preliminary trial will take
place at Longview next Monday.
W. W. Hall was appointed re
ceiver and it is believed the de
positors would he paid in full.

BATTLES IN POETRY.
Itt Tusoany Even the Peasants Indulge
, In Thin Pastime.
Visit the homo of h peasant In Tus
cany on some winter’s evening mid you
will 13 surprised and charmed, writes
Mr, Ulchard Itagof in "The Italiniis of
Today.” Gathered round the kitchen
tiro after the day’:, work Is done, these
peasants, fresh from their rough labor
In the fields and vineyards, vie with
each other In reciting poetry and tell
Inc stories. Generally both are extem
poraneous, and often they have a cood
deal of poetic grace and Imagination.
The gift of reciting improvised poetry
la not. however, confined to the peas
ants In Tuscany. I know of an In
stance that occurred In my own nolgh
borhood not so very long ago that cer
tainly could not have occurred any
where but In Tuscany. A local doctor
was driving to catch k train at a sta
tion a few miles from me, and on Ids
way he was accosted by a colleague
who happened to ho looking over hi*
garden wall. The colleague shouted
out c line of Improvised verse to him,
upon which the other instantly pulled
up his horse and capped the lino with
another.
Doctor No. 2 responded, and for
threo hour i the poetic contest was con
tinned without cessation In the mean
time fhe whole of the village had lorn
ed out to listen and to make wagers on
which would be the first to lack an In
splration. It was only us dusk came
on (hat doctor No. I remembered that
he was on Ids way to catch a train!
Whether a patient was expecting
him I know not, but I feel convinced
that such a detail would not have been
allowed to Interfere with this war of
verses.
If is Interesting to see that even the
Illiterate peasant* detect at once the
slightest departure from the form In
which the original lima are set and
consider the offender to have lost the
match
