Tho Heekiuan hank weathered
many panics, notably those of '";!, 'Ik't
and 1U07. These disturbances affect
ed the Ileekmnu hank not at all save
that it always had a few thousand or
a few hundred Ihousiuid to help out
less fortunate fellow hankers. The
money of the depositors always was
ready for them. Oilier bankers said
that ho was not a shrewd banker.
PcihapH not, according to some stan
dards. Hut ho always had sufficient
money to lend to his customers and
plenty toi pay every honest demand
that could ho made upon him.
Mr. Heekiuan always was a staunch
republican and in 1878 was made the
candidate of his pttity for governor.
Ho was defeated by the narrow mar
gin of II votes, lie had held inan.v
minor offices of honor mid dignity,
always having been a leader in ev
erylhiug for tho bctletment of his
section of tho state. Hut his race
for governor was tho only office of
importance ho over ran for.

The Comradeship of "Bull" Durham
There is something about ripe, mellow "Bull" Durham Tobacco
that appeals to clean-cut manhood the world over.
Wherever in the world two "Bull" Durham smokers meetin a
hotel lobby or club in Europe or America; at cross-trails in the
Klondike; in some far-off seaport on the Pacific each recognizes
in the other a man to his own liking, a comrade in the world-wide
brotherhood of "the Makings." A sack of "Bull" Durham is a letter
of introduction that will win friends in every part of the globe.
Millions of experienced smokers find the cigarettes they roll for
themselves from pure, ripe "Bull" Durham tobacco heller suited to
their taste and more satisfactory than any they
buy ready-made. The rich, fresh fragrance and
smooth, mellow flavor of "Bull" Durham hand
made cigarettes afford healthful enjoyment and
lasting satisfaction. Get "the Makings" today
and ' roll your own."
