THOMAS F. RYAN. His battle with adversity began early in life. At the tender age of five he lost his mother, and later his ancestral home in Virginia was made desolate by the War of the Rebellion. At the age of 17 he bravely set out to make his way in the world. He was penniless, but too proud to seek aid from family or friends. His first stop was in Baltimore, Md. Day after day he sought employment; time after time was he refused. At last, in the depths of despair, he found a vacancy in the dry goods store of John S. Barry. He was told to report for work the next damorning. Experience had taught him the dangers of delay. Calmly removing his coat and hat, he declared his intention of beginning the job at once. After two years of service, attracted by his ability and determination, his employer offered him a position in a banking house which he had established in New York. Here se learned the first principles of finance and laid the- "tiidakion of his career as an executive financier. His present fortune is estimated at $25,000,000. His mar velous success is obviously due to his in domitabie will end unrelenting determina lon. 3 / Paid on Time Certificates of Deposit Paid on Savings accounts 0 $1.00 Starts an account FA.

LANDRY FARMERS SATISFIED WITH LAYNE-BOWLER WELLS Layne & Bowler Company of Welsh and Crowley, Louisiana, have just completed for Messrs. Chas. B. Chachere and J. Sam Evans of Opelousas, Louisiana, what they consider one of the very finest Layne Rice Irrigation Plants it has ever been their pleasure to install. The well is completed with The Layne Patent Shutter Screen, which has an inside diameter of Eleven Inches and is All Screen, it is equipped with The Layne Patent No. 6 Pump installed in a Steel Pit at a depth of seventy feet. They tested the well and pump on December 18th with a 35 Horse Power Portable Engine and Boiler, using an 8" five ply Gandy Belt and produced 2564 gallons of water per minute. It was thoroughly demonstrated that this was not nearly the maxi mum capacity of the well or pump, due to the fact that the belt was too light and then the weather conditions were very unfavor-1 able for running a belt without any cover, as it rained a number of times during the day. The above amount of water was Not Guess ed At Or Estimate 1, but was measured accurately with a weir. The well and pump were demonstrated to quite a number of inter ested parties, all of whom were greatly pleased and stated that they had no doubt but what the well would produce over 3,000 gal lons of water per minute when operated with proper power and belt and under more favorable conditions. Both Mr. Chachere and Mr. Evans are highly pleased with their LAYNE PLANT and we would suggest to all who contem plate putting in Rice Wells that they consult with these Gentlemen before they contract for any system other than THE LAYNE SYSTEM. It is a well known fact that there have been a number of total failures made trying to get good irrigation wells within a very few miles of the Plant just completed for Messrs. Chachere & Evans and this alone should be very convincing evidence that the LAYNE WELLS AND LAYNE PUMPS are producing the re suIts where others have failed. LAYNE & BOWLER COMPANY guarantee all of their wells and pumps and do not ask for one cent until their Plant has been tested and proven to fully fulfil THEIR GUARANTEE. They are willing to take the risk. They have just recently completed a Layne Rice Irrigation Plant for Mr. Peter Brown near Chataignier, La. This plant is also a big producer and Mr. 'Brown is well satisfied. The Layne : Plant installed for the Town of Eunice, La., within a few feet of where other systems had proven total failures, is giving the best of satisfaction and is saving the Town money every day as they now have a super-abundance of pure water for their own I uses and also sell water to the Railroads and last summer furnish- w 2d water to a Rice Planter to finish irrigating his crop.
