Women Patrons of the Bank
A few years ago, there were practically no women who
were * atrons o f the Bank. Now, however, women recognize
the service of the Bank as one o f the aids in handling household
and personal money affairs. The progressive woman deposits
allowances for home expenses anfl pays all accounts by check.
The result is that her money is always safeguarded against loss
by fire or burglary and her money goes farther because o f the
systematic way in which it is handled.

an earthquake which wrecked practi
cally all buildings and residences in
Hement and San Jacinto, two inland
towns 45 miles southeast o f Riverside,
and caused minor property damage in
practically every town and city.
August Carlson, o f this city, was
found dead, without any external
marks o f injury.
An examination failed to disclose
the cause o f death, but the surgeons
gave it as their opinion that the man
had probably died from shock.
Another man was killed in a panic
at Santa Monica, when he fell off a
pier. A woman was injured by falling
