Des Moines, Iowa, May ,15, 1910.—
The past week was unseasonably cool,
and except in the extreme southeastern
counties it waa abnormally dry prior
to the 15th. Frost occurred generally
on the 12th, 13th and 14th with freez
ing temperature on the last date in
northern districts. There was, how
ever, more than the average amount
of sunshine and rapid progress was
made in corn planting. Fully 70 per
cent of the corn has been planted with
the ground generally in excellent physi
cal condition, but owing to the cold
weather the seed is germinating
slowly, and considerable replanting
will be done especially in southern dis
tricts where the ground is damp from
the heavy rains of the previous week.
Small grain and grass, while making
slow growth, are doing as well as could
be expected under the unfavorable con
ditions and some improvement is re
ported. Early potatoes which were
frozen in April are coming up again
and are looking well. The prospects
for fruit are very poos. The week
closes with rain falling in all parts of

A Bohctniaa Savings Bank at Protivin.
Protivin, Iowa, May 18, 1910.
The Bohemians of the lively little
town of Protivin and vicinity for some
time have been contemplating the
establishment of an entirely indepen
dent savings bank at Protivin. Their
wishes are now as much as realized.
Those concerned have had several
conferences, the final conference being
held last Tuesday, and there it was
finally decided to establish an indepen
dent bank at Protivin.
At the conference last mentioned all
the necessary preliminary steps have
been decided upon, articles of incor
poration adopted, and as soon ad' the
necessary formalities prescribed by law
are complete, the bank will commence vw
business. The official title of the bank
will be The Bohemian Savings Bank.
The corporators have taken other
steps to make the bank one of the best
in the state for the town of the size.
The business will not only be com
menced immediately, but also a site
has been selected, whereon with the
least possible delay a jfroper building
will be raised. The site chosen is un
usually favorable, being opposite the
Catholic church at Protivin, and the in
tention is to put up a handsome build
ing equipped with all modern facilities
The following gentlemen are the cor
porators of the new institution, and
these same gentlemen will be the first
directors of the bank: Rev. Father R.
Lakomy, John Bouska, H. Lukes. F.
Lukes, J. M. Huber, F. J. Khmesh,
Ole Natvig, J. F. Pecinovsky, Charles
Among others, the following are in
terested in the new institution: W.
Cisar, Frank Riha, Jos. Vopava, Anna
Riha, Vit. Jankovsky, F. J. Pencil,
Joseph Bouska, J. A. Dostal, Ed.
Slama, R. A. Klimesh, Jacob Svestka,
J. J. Jirak, James J. Sobolik, etc.
There is no question that the new in
stitution will prosper. Some of the
'wealthiest and most influential resi
dents of Protivin are backing the bank
thus organized, and they are quite
enthusiastic about the future of same.
They are also determined to make it a
success, and will not be deterred from
their plans by any possible obstacles.
We can also state on good authority
that any possible rumors that an in
dependent bank at Protivin will not be
organized, are not in accordance with
the facts. An independent bank at
Protivin may be considered from now
on an accomplished fact.
It also should be stated, that while
the name of the bank is the Bohemian
Savings Bank, this name does not im
ply that only Bohemians are the in
terested parties. In fact, the Nor
wegians, Germans and Americans in
the vicinity of Protivin are as keenly
interested as anybody else.
