CORUM. A Card. I desire to announce to my friends and to the public at large, that, after thirteen years of service in tbe Old .National Bank, I have resigned my position as its assistant cashier. I wish to say further, that my resigna tion was a voluntary act of my own; that it was uninfluenced and unso licited by anyone inside or outside of the bank, but that it was wholly on account of my failing health and under the urgent advice of my phy sicians. To my friends, I wish to say, that, "though I am no longer connected with the Old National Bank, I am still its friend and, as such, most deeply interested in not oniy its luture success, but in the success and happiness of every official connect ed with it, from its president down to the lowest clerk, everyone of whom has been most kind and con siderate to me. To those of my friends who have done business with the bank,- both because of my con nection with it and otherwise, I wish to express my profound gratitude, and to earnestly solicit a continuance of their support to the end, that the Old National Bank may grow and increase as the years increase, main taining to the end its place as the strongest and best bank in Obion bounty.

A fair market price will be paid for this flour. The merchants of the county are asked t5 finance the movement of this flour. When it Is shipped it will be paid for by the United States Grain Corporation against warehouse receipts or bills of lading. Those who are willing to spare their flour will furnish name and full address wUh Civil District number to County Food Administrator and he will notify them where flour should be delivered.
