SOUL M ATERIAL HAS ENTERED

The Bank a Financial Power House

By Peter Radford.
One of the greatest opportunities in
the business life of the nation lies
in practical co-operation of the coun

agriculture and the adventure is laden
with greuter possibilities than any
lorward movement now before the
A few bankers have loaned money
to farmers at a low rate of interest,

on such a basis would severely test
the sanity of the banker; such trans
actions would pain the directors like
a blow in the face. A cashier who

have to give way to a more capable
man. This does not necessarily mean
that the bankers aro getting any better

getting wiser, becoming more abli-fin

competent. The vision of the builder is
crowding out the spirit of the pawn
broker. A light has been turned on
a now world of investment and no
usurer ever received ns large returns
on the investment as these progres

uplift industry. The bankers have
always been liberal city builders, but
they are now building agriculture.
A Dollar With a Soul.
It Is refreshing in this strenuous
commercial life to find so many dol
lars with souls. When a dollar is ap-
preached to perform a tusk that does
not directly yield the highest rate of
