OF KIND IN STATE
When the interior decorations of
the First National Bank were com
pleted last week, Hickory was able to
say with truth that this city had the
handsomest bank building in the state.
There are more costly and more im
posing buildings than the First Na
tional, but there is not a strictly
bank building anywhere in the state
that begins to mVure up to the local
institution in attractiveness and beau
ty. The artist's eye may be seen in
every line, figure, stone or column.

of a .pistol bullet wound inflicted
Wednesday morning at his home. The
body was held today at a local under

caused officials to doubt the state

fired in his hand. It was said that
the trigger appeared to have been
snapped five times, and four cart
ridges ; failed to explode when struck
by the trigger. Mrs. Ford sobbing
ly reiterated that the shot was fired
by her husband shortly after he left
his sleeping porch and returned to
the house Wednesday morning.
