CAPITAL AMD SURPLUS 9100,000.00
To our Friends and Patrens:
The year now drawing to a olose has
been one of the most satisfactory and
successful of our career. During the
year of 1013 a larger volume of busi
ness was transacted through our insti
tution than during any previous year in
our history. Within the past sixty days
more new aooounts have been opened with
us than in any like period heretofore,
while our books now contain a larger
number of depositors than ever before
a silent tribute to the fact that our
business methods have met with the pub
lic's generous approval, and that our
banking policies have proven right un
der the exacting test of time.
During the past year we have in
creased our offloe force, have further
perfected our carefully devised system
of handling the large volume of busi
ness committed to our charge, and have
added the newest and latest office
equipment, so that we are now enabled
to render better and more efficient
aervioe to our patrons than at any time
in the past.
With the approach of the holiday
period we extend to our many friends
the season's greeting. We desire to
thank you for your past patronage, for
the kindly words of commendation that
have brought us new friends and pat
rons. That the New Year may bring you
one and all prosperity and plenty is
our sinoerest wish.
With best wishes for a Merry
Christmas and a happy and prosperous
New Year, I am,
Very sincerely yours,

With Currency Law
J. L. Gault, cashier of the
First National Bank, states that
he considers the changes made
in the new currency bill before
its final passage are such that it
will make the new law quite ac
ceptable and satisfactory to the
National Banks generally. It is
his belief that very few of the
National Banks will surrender
their charters when the new law
becomes operative, and he fur
ther states that whatever steps
are necessary for his institution
to continue under the new sys
tem will be taken in due season.
Mr. Gault expresses gratification
that the bill has finally been
passed and it is his opinion that
it was greatly improved and
strengthened during the closing
days of its consideration and that
it will prove beneficial to busi
ness conditions generally.
