He acquires standing in the community. The man who pays his bills with a check is looked upon as a man with an account at a bank. It makes no difference whether the account is large or small. The man who gets the check doesn't know that. He simply appreciates the fact that you have money in the bank. It increases his respect for you and his confidence in you. All this advantage cost you nothing. You need simply to open an account. To-day is a good day to open an account. PRESIDENT. A CASHIER. ACCOUNTS OF LADIES ESPECIALLY DEIREID. State News.

Excellent Plays. The Minister's Son, the play which was presented at our opera house last Saturday night proved beyond a doubt to be the best attraction seen in our opera house this season. Mr. Patton as Simon Ray, the Minister's Son, was splendid. He is handsome and eloquent and his acting is natunr alness itselt Every one in the cast were exceptionally strong and that the play was much enjoyed was evi denced in many ways. Hennessey Leroyle in Other Peo ple's M ney was rendered at the opera house Sunday night. The play was good and in fact very strong. The audience was kept spell bound in laughter. Mr. Leroye is undoubtedlyl a commedian much above the ordiun ary and those who did not see this performance missed seeing a splendid actor, an actor of unquestionable merit. The Herald Square Opera company was given Monday night, to a very large crowd notwithstanding .he in clemency of the weather. The opera I was enjoyed and was much appieciat. ed by all present It was a change to the natuhal run of our theatrical entertainments and was high!y wel- I comed by the audience. The opera house management de. serves good deal of credit and praise I for having given the people such first I class pertormances of high order since 1 the beginning of the new year 1902. The management has been indefatiga. ble in its efforts to secure good troupes, and we are glad to say, that it has succeeded to the entire satis. faction of the people. WAIa DZPARTMENT.

Olfcial. DYNAMITrl. Melinite. Earl Marshal of the Empire. J. O. K. Dr. Thomas A. Stark one of our most highly thought of physicians was compelled to go to New Orleans this week to have an arm of his at, tended to which he knncked out of place in some manner. We are glad to learn that the Doctor is getting along alright and hope that in a few damy he will be himself again. They Say That it is certainly a pity to see the handsome banquet opposite the resi. dence formerly occupied by Mr. A. J. Trone being cut up and fearfully mutulated by the many vehicles which are continually passing over it daily, and That a few loads of Oyster shells would remedy the defect mentioned above, and That this matter is of some impor. tance and should be attended. to with. out any delay by our town authorities That utterances are often miscon strued when we dislike a parmon. That the dance given by the Car. atval Club ist Tuesday night proved very enjoyable to those in attemdenoe, and That the masquers wore handsome costumes, and That some of them looked horrid enough to give anyone nightmares. That if you me not one of the for. ty some odd persons who had their banns published at church recently that you are strictly -not in it." That contentment never smiles up. on you, and That genuine happiness is never experienced, and That prosperity is never enjoyed' until you have taken Into yourself a companion to share with you the vi. cissitudes and victories of life. That before a man is married he is a dude, and That after he is married he is sub* dued, and That before marriage he has no buttons on his shirt, and That after marriage he has no shirt, and That before marriage he swears that he would not marry the best woman in the world, and That after marriage he fnds that he hasn't, and That you will have to decide for yourself as to the correctanes of the above. That W. B. Patton as Simon Ray in The blihister's Soo was great, and That he has a brilliant future be fore him on the stage if he continues to improve as the Sears go by, and That the whole performance was splendid, and That Hennessy Leroyle in Other People's Money captured the as. dience at the Opera House last SmBu day night, and That those who did not take to the :lay missed seeing one of the great. eat ommedians ever seen upon our stage. That several of our boys had a sauce piquants a la coos at the rer. taurant last Tuesday night, and That when they got up from the table they went home singing Cooa Coon Coon, Oh where in the h-U is the Moon, and That they were awful happy, and That nobody knows just why they were so gay and musical. That the best coarse a girl can take after receiving a common school edu cation is a thorough course ina oast. ology, boilokgy, stitchology, darn. ology, patchology and general domes. ticology. That it is strange that a man nove er becomes alarmed about his country until hbe becomes a candidate for of, Bce. That oneo o our yooug men 1n town was bragg~og the other day about not having caught a cokld, aud That no one is astooished at this test boeause he as too mserably slow to ever catch anything. That after he kises her good night for the last dmle ie always kses her agai. That the days of mirales have not pssed as cow below Sobrdever was struck by a train lst week and knocked into kindling wood. That Quc Vadis will he prmatod on our stage nat Tuesday ight, That everybody dshould remember that this same company played to a largehooe la or opera hoses at seaeou, and That it proved to be tha hbest play presented to as last year, ad That every body suold atted this performance as It is a beaustel story contaeniag more history tban fictioa, and That the play teache the triumph ofChrmstianity during the frightful days of the Roman Emperor Nero. That he thought he knew how ,"The Tale of the Kangaroo" wemt, and Tbhat be 41,1't. didn't didn't That the door was not wkide enough, so he had to break througb oe of hi large glas windows to get Into his That he looked like the MiaiMma' Son, and That all the timehe had at oh be bore a trooubled look. That the greatest sportlag place i town can be found In one of ear to sorial adlors. That he almost went to Surlever, and That itis not knowns ile ever git' ba&c
