Naturally this young and growing
institution feels very milch cbnipli-
mentod to know its popularity with
the people with whoih it has struggled
and grown through such trying times
as It has expciionccd during its bhorl
life. Moreover Its olllccvsaml direc-
tors npiimiato very much the sup-
port thitt has been given it- and which
has been responsible for its success.
The value of an institution of its
kind can not be1 over estimated. The
development of any countrj is due
hugely to the ability of that country
to command money with which to car-
ry on Its development. A trusit com-
pany is an absolute necessity to
seciue cheap money in the North and
Wast and Invest it among ita patrons.
The citizenship of Abilene is glad to
see the enlargement of this 'Instltu-
tiop and will certainly ghe it that
