Statistics Compiled By Denver
Road of Banks Show Healthy
Statistics compiled by the "Den-
ver Road" show that on the date
of the last call for the year by the
Comptroller of the Currency No-
vember 9th 1905 twenty-five
national and six private banks out
of a total of thirty-three on the
Denver Road and Wichita Valley
not including Ft. Worth show in-
dividual deposits and certificates
of deposit to be $5015391.42.
Of this $268012.68 represents
certificates of deposits or money
loaned by depositors to the local
banks.! One town alone shows
over $900000.00 individual de-
posits and another $600000.00.
Of the certificates of deposits one
town has $141 195.00 and another
$55380.00 showing that the
farmers in those localities have
more money than is required for
the conduct of their current busi
ness. One bank has over a half
million dollars on deposit three
over three hundred thousand each
and six over two hundred thous-
and dollars each. These figures
do not include deposits of other
banks nor of the government de-
posits as it is the intention to show

The foregoing figures show a
healthy and prosperous condition
of that part of the state which has
received so much attention during
the past two or three years.
It is not difficult to see why lands
have doubled and trebled during
the past two years. Any country
In which the individual deposits
exceed ten thousand dollars per
mile of railway must possess more
than ordinary merit.
It should not be overlooked that
the foregoing figures represent a
period when the products of the
Panhandle country has just begun
to move. If figures were obtained
for the present time it is quite safe
to estimate an addition of two to
three million dollars to the figures
shown above would not be far

"For seven years" writes Geo.
W. Hoffman of Harper Wash. "I
had a bitter battle with chronic
stomach and liver trouble but at
last I won and cured my diseases
by the use of Electric Bitters. I
unhesitatingly recommend them to
all and don't intend in the future
to be without them in the house.
They are certainly a wonderful
medicine to have cured such a bad
case as mine." Sold under guar-

N CHOOSING YOUR CHRISTMAS GIFTS try
and do so with some regard to the needs of
those for whom they are intended.
The shops are full of pretty trifles and it is
possible to please everybody from grand-
mimma down to the littlest baby.
Do not be discouraged if the amount you can afford to ex-
pend is of the smallest.
Dispatch each little gift with a loving sentiment and it is
sure to be welcomed and appreciated.
Those who love you will love your gift no matter how small
it may be.
So don't feel unhappy because the gifts seem cheap to you.
It would be vry nice to have a full pocket as well as a full
heart; but if you can't have both be satisfied with the latter for
it is better of the two.
Some of you at this glad Christmas tide are far from home.
Perhaps you can't afford to go home and perhaps you can't
even afford to send home any gifts. '
But there is one thing you can all afford to do and that is
to write a Christmas letter.
It isn't always easy to keep up the home correspondence.
At the end of a long day's work one is too tired to do any-
thing but tumble into bed
And on Sunday well the day is over before it seems
So between one thing and another we get into shockingly
careless habits regarding letter-writing.
But the people at home never forget the absent ones and
every day brings with it the hope of a letter from the son or
There is never a day of the year that your mother does not
breath a blessing for your welfare.
She will value a loving cheerful letter from you just as
highly as though it were a present.
Don't forget to make the letter as loving as possible.
Let her see that you think of her and loye her and ap-
preciate all that she has done for you.
Tell her what you are aoing how you are getting on. and
how vou would love to be with her.
Write so that she will receive the letter Christmas Day.
You know the beautiful thing about Christmas is not the
actual gift but the kind feeling that prompts the desire to give.
That same spirit can inspire vou to write a beautiful letter.
Don't feel that the gift of a Christmas letter is not worth
It is very rruch worth while.
After you have written to your family you may think of some
lonely man or woman to whom a Christmas letter would be a
Just the knowledge that some one thought of them at this
happy season of the year would cheer them.
Write all the Chnstrrus letters you can afford to.
Every one of them will give a thrill of happiness to some one
(lifts for the Poor.
Under the auspices of the Pas-
tor's Association of this city gifts
of both money and other useful ar-
ticles will be received at the various
churches upon the evening of their
Christmas exercises and entertain-
ments. The entertainments at many
of the churches will be on Monday
evening though the Presbyterian
and probably one or two others
will hold their exercises Saturday

The Going of Marshall.
Mr. W. S. Marshall and wife left
Wednesday for Delton Wisconsin
where they go to make their home
in the future. They will reside at
the old homestead where Mr. Mar-
shall was raised. Wo have no hes-
tancy in saying that the Panhandle
country suffers a great loss in the
departure of this energetic vigor-
ous and progressive citizen. He
was a pioneer of those who prophe-
sied a great future for the Panhan-
dle and his articles extolling the
richness and wonderful possibilities
of this section have been raed from
one end of the country to the oth-
er and have been a great factor in
bringing so many people to this
beautiful section. While regret-
ting his departure we are glad to
know that 'he still retains landed
interests in this country retaining
his ranch lands of 5280 acres
which will necessitate an occasion-
al visit to Channing and it is more
than probable that when he does
come he will be accompanied by
people who will cast their lot with
us. Yet for all this we exceed-
ingly regret to see him go and his
many Panhandle friends will join
us in wishing him and his good wife
bon voyage with a hope that the
glamour and fascination of the
plains will yet draw him back to us
again. Channing Courier.

The popularity of the Woods
Sister's productions under the man-
agement of Mr. Otto Krause is
evidenced by the large attendance
nightly at these performances. Be-
ginning with their first presenta-
tion Monday evening a full house
has greeted this popular company
throughout their entire engage-
ment thus far this week. The
company is exceptionally strong in
comedy-drama supplemented by
good individual work and inter
posed with clever specialty. Satur
day afternoon for the first time in
this city the company will present
a special matinee "Little Red Rid-
ing Hood." This is one of the
most popular attractions with the
younger folks and to those older
will serve to bring back the memo-
ries of youth when exaggerated at-
tention was given the old nursery
rhymes. To-night "A Struggle

The A. A. A. Man is making some
very important improvements put-
ting in new fixtures and a side of

telling them about by judicious advertising.
Word was received yesterday by
C. D. Sinclair stating that by the
execution of the will of his grand-
father who resides at Sinclair La.

fortune of approximately $100000.

Rock Island in this city and has
been here about eight months com-
ing to Amarillo from Ft. Worth.

who is known in sections of the
the south as the "swine kimr.' of
the south" lives at Sinclair La.
where he has a swine ranch of 66-
000 acres with an annual output
of half million hogs which arc
marketed at the great livestock
centers of the country. His for-
tune is placed at $2750000 and
with a desire to do away with any
litigation that might follow his
death in the distribution of his
property he had his will executed
so that he might live to see all of
his relatives fairly dealt with.
Mr. Sinclair of thisc:tyto whom
fortune has favored is a young man
of twenty-five years and with his
wife has made his home at 200
North Fillmore street. He has re-
signed from his position here with
