Continental State Bank
During the ten years we have been established it lias been
the constant aim of the management to render the very best
service consistent with prudent banking. Our success
along this line is attested by the continual growth of the
institution and our increased capital, unexcelled financial
connections, and loyal support of patrons coupled with ten
years successful experience, bespeaks even greater service in
the future than in the past.
Yours to serve
