A couple of farmers near here (we'd get killed if we told their names) went to the city last summer to do a lit tle shopping. One of them, whom we will call Si, took plenty of money with him. The other whom we will call Bill, took none. Instead he took one of our check books. This amused Si. “No check book for me. Bill.'’ Sez he, “Give me the cold cash every time.” “But aren’t yon afraid you’ll lose it?” asked Bill. The answer was a knowing “huh!” Well, they made their purchases, but when they went to pay, they found that a pickpocket had robbed them both. Si was in a terrible fix. This amused Bill. The outcome was that Bill took out his check book and wrote checks for both their purchases, whereupon Si vowed that hereafter he’d keep his money out of reach of pickpockets. We cordially invite accounts subject to check in any amount from one dollar up. Banking hours from 9:00 a. m. to 3:00 p. m. W. A, Leathers, Pres. Henry Thompson, V. P. F. C.
