Why Endorse It?
''Why In It," Baku a younjr man, "that thoy !
way want you to endorse a check nt Uio bank!"
The reason is simple. Tho endorsement is your re
ceipt for tho money. A check (a on order on the
bank to pay some particular person a certain amount
of money, Tho person mnklnjr the check wants to
know that his wishes nro fulfilled that the person
I ho gives tho check to gets his money. It is much ,
v 'simpler! easier, and safer; to leavo the money in Uio
bank and then pay your bills by check. On account
of tho endorsement as abovo explained there is a

Important Meeting of Cotumerrjal
(lull Tomorrow Night.
A special meeting of tbo Commer
cial Club haa been callod for Thurs
day, Feb. 29, at 8 p. in.
Tha principal object of the meet
ing Is to discuss and decide tho ques
tion of employing a now manager to
fill tho vnenncy caused by the resig
nation of J. !:. Sawhlll. This Is a
matter of vital lniortauco to every
one Interested In Hotid'e wolfaro and
all aro urged to attend, whether club
merobera or not.
As the Pan a in n Cannl will do more
for the Pacific Coast states than for
any other territory, It la natural that
the people of the Coast should bo
particularly Interested In Its pro
gress. Tho series of brief article?
concerning tho Canal, of which thl
la tho first, will attempt to give a
plcturo of tha canal construction
operations as thoy aro today, and to
forecast what tho results of tho open
Ing or tbo big ditch will bo, especially
as far as Oregon Is concerned.
History, of the Canal.
Tho Idea of a canal across the
Isthmus of Pnnama, or Darlcn, aa It
waa called originally, dates back
practically 400 years. Indeed, next
year, 1913, when the canal will be
completed, will bo juat 400 years
aftor tho date when tho first white
man crossed tho Isthmus.
In 1613, Ilalboa. a Spanish ex
plorer, or "conquistador," as they
woro called, discovered tho Pacific,
seeing It for tho first tlmo from tho
top of n hill probably about 100 mites
south of the present canal. A year
later his slaves transported three
vessels across tho Isthmus on their
backs, piece by piece, and set then
up again In the waters of the Pacific.
That waa tbo first tlmo a ship ever
crossed the American continent.
Next year hundreds will tako a simi
lar Journey, only they will pass
through tho canal Instead of being
1)0 mo on tho backs of Indian alaves
and Spanish adventurers.
After Ilalboa had opened the way,
the Spaniards made a highway of the
Isthmus. All the treasures of Peru
and the west coast of South Africa
were carried across the narrow atrip
of land on their way to 8paln. Tho
country was horribly unhealthy, and
the trip across became more and
mora difficult as tho traffic Increased.
During thla tlmo, and up to the ad
vent of tho French company that
actually began digging a ditch, there
woro canal schemes galore.
Finally, In tho late seventies, one
of these schemes camo to a head, and
a French company, headed by Ferdi
nand Do Lessups, who hsd directed
tho construction of tho Sues Canal,
took hold.
French Company Falls.
After several years of work on the
Isthmus, tho Frenchmen got deeper
and deeper Into difficulties. The
engineering problems proved far
greater than waa at first estimated;
tho sanitary conditions were heart
breaking, and yellow fever and othor
diseases played havoc In tho ranks

that your home had been destroyed by fire or
sacked by burglars, what would your loss be
in the way of direct cash? Hidden money is
an incentive, a stimulus, to robbery. Count-
less newspaper stories tell of life-savings lost
through fire.
You work too hard ior what you earn, to
risk loss.
Your money will always be atjyour
fingertips when you want it, in this bank
and all risk of loss will be eliminated.
