One of the greatest ditficulties which luis
prevailed in the banking business in this state
lias been the ease with which men could get
into the business, who were in no way tilted
for it. Men have come to his state whose rec-
ords in other states, if known, would have made
it impossible for them to secure sufficient con-
fidence to maintain themselves in business
to whom no one would think ot entrusting de-
posits. Yet, in the hurry and carelessness in
cident to a new country, where the tendency is
to forget that a man has any record except
what he has made here, these men have been
able to secure the confidence ui their com

We can't all be high-brows; in fact, only a few
of us can belong to this superior cult. The

jority is labelled, have literary rights and ap-
petites, which, however inferior and distasteful
they may be to the mental aristocracy (so the
able to secure the commence m uieir com- high brtAvs evidently consider themselves),

they shut their eyes to the fact that the Sundav j
