OVERDRAFTS WILL
BE HONORED
By THE B
S
The practice by some banks of pay
ing overdrafts for certain customors
or at least privileged customors has
for some time been looked upon by
the departments of banking of tho
irliAis states and national banking
urtment with disfavor A great
nany of the m6st conservative banks
navo absolutely refused to pay over
drafts
This practice by certain Individuals
o continue to overdraw their ao
ojnta is also one of the greatest
worries that the banking officers haw
to conteud with The Board of
vors look upon It not favorably
and certain depositors whose affairs
aro managed so that they always
maintain n satisfactory deposit balj
anco prefer to bank with institutions
that do not tolerato overdrafts
Tho Bank 6f Safford having consid
ered for some tlmo the discontinu
ance of overdrafts have now decided
to not pay overdrafts for auy ouo in
tho future They are appreciative of
tho business which they have been
favored with by their customers and
have always tried to furnish them
with every accomodation conslstnnt
with the condition of the times
They believe howeter that it will
better the advantage of their custom
ers to not continue to pay ovrdrafts
as in tho past and earnestly solicit
the cooperation of their depositors in
not writing checks when they do not
have funds on deposit to pay them

DEATH
SE
COLORADO
PENITENTIARY
CANON CITY Colo The grim
old building abutting the Main street
wall of tho Colorado Btnto peniten
tiary in which nlany condemned
criminal havo paid with their lives
for tho commission -of crimes punish
able by death Is being torn down to
make place for the new modern execu
tion chamber and a number of com
demned cells
The old building two stories high
hns a facade of approximately 30 feet
Tho outer are of cut stone and
are without windows The only light
that can penetrate Its atom forbid
ding interior finds its way through a
couplo of strongly barred and grated
doors which can be closed when so
desired In such a way as to exclude
all viowvand sound of the outside
world
Inside the building are six dark
cells for those who by order of Ihe
courts are under the shadow of death
Theso cells are In two tiers arranged
three above each other They aro
dark at all times except when a little i
light is permitted to trickle into them
from tho dingy corridor along which
they are built Constructed of steel
and concrete these cells literally can
resist the strength of a Sanrpson In
addition it is possible merely by turn
ing a lever to change tho cells into
a veritable dungeon as black as
frebus
Tho Ingenious contrivance used In
springing the trap said to have been
invented by a condemned criminal
who himself tried out tno efficiency of
his idea will bo contained In the new
condemned houso and execution
chamber
The condemned prisoner by use of
the contrivance in use springs his
own trap He mounts a platform
which opens valves that cause a flow
of water into a reservoir which at
tho proper time releases the spring
of n hydraulic mechanism that auto
matically sets off a trap which causes
a 300 pound weight in an adjoining
room to drop a distance of from 10 to
12 feet Jerking the prisoner up and
thereby breaking his neck The last
time the mechanism was used In the
Colorado penitentiary was In Decem
ber 1920 when George Bosko was
executed for the murder of two men
on the Pueblo Rye road after they
had offered him a ride in their auto
mobile
There are now no condemned men
in the prison and Warden Tynan
anticipates that ample time will be
given for the construction of a new
death houso before It is actually
needed
