National Hank of Halfway.
In commenting on the change
the Pino Valley Herald says: "An
Increase in the capital stock in
the local haul' will help in the
development of the commun.ty.
We have always bion short of

some years past had lived off the
bounty of friends.
"Uncle Bill," as fie was famil
iarly known, was almost 87 years
Qf ago at the time of his death.
Ho was a son-in law of Oregon's
first territorial governor, Gale.
