The car.penters have put in a new
front to the Bank of Versailles, and
now it is "to the front." While it
looked like a wrecked Bank for some
time, U is now thoroughly regenerated,
and is certainly up-to-date. The en
tire interior has been remodeled.
Fine new railing and desks, a skylight
through the upper floor, the low
er floor laid in fancy tiling, a new
front nhd hot water heat, it is as neat,
comfortable, convenient and cozy as
any bank building in the state. It
all speaks well for the enterprise of
the managers of this old, reliable in
stitution, and 'denotes a very prosper
ous business, and may the enterprise
and prosperity both continue. For
the latter they are well- prepared, as
they have vaults below and also
ahovij room .enough for the bound
less wealth of. Morgan lotinty. The
new improvements are somewhat on
the Masonic order of architecture--the
two pillars in the front porch,
the tasieluted pavement, the winding
stair to the upper chamber and oth
er Masonic tendencies, as doing busi
ness on the quare, tee..,
