created and is maintained by assessments against

such bank are insufficient to pay the depositors,

f The band concert given on the Ver-
I andao of the R. W. Huff residence
Monday evening, was success in
every respect and was much appre-
ciated, as was shown by the large
number of cars lined up in front of
llieir home. The band boys have
surely done a lot of hard work under
their efficient leader, W. H. Shrader
and they are to be congratulated.
The readings given by Miss Elvera
Redlund of Lyford, were also much
cr joyed as were the Violin solo selec-
tions given by Mr. Harry Shapiro,
Proprietor of “The Popular Store.”
We hope to have the pleasure of hear-
ing him often. Let us have these
concerts often and advertise them
so the out of town people may come in
and enjoy them with us.
