Build Up Your
rHE man who opens an ac-
count at the bank is making
the best possible start to-
ward building up his credit.
The fact that he pays his
bills by giving a check on
the bank adds to his stand-
ing with the business men;
he also avoids error in mak-
ing change and trouble over

NEW ASSESSMENT LAW
t Taxpayers Must Now Go to the
Assessor to List Their
The following changes in thrjg
method of making the assess- ~
incut ' is printed herewith for
| tlie benefit of those who may not
he familiar with the new law:
State School Money Apportion-
ment to Take Place Soon.
The .January distribution of
the state school moneys will be
made Jan. 15th. The largest
semi-annual apportionment that
has heretofore been made was
in .January. 1914,when each child
received $1.25 from the state
funds. Supt. R. 11. Wilson an-
nounces that the per capita fund
this January will be in excess of
that made in January, 1914, al-
though the scholastic population
ot the .state has increased from j
•j.>i,004, in 1914; to 587.134 in
1916; a gain of 30,130; hence the j
coming apportionment will be j
! the largest ever made in the liis-
I tory of the state. Immediately
I after the apportionment has
I been made, the state supwinteiid-
j cut will notify the county supei-
| intendent, county clerk and trcas-
I urer of each county of amount
apportioned and these officers
will distribute the money anions
all the school districts of the
School Land Lessees Meeting-
All lessees are requested to
meet at Court House in King-
fisher at 1 p. m.. Jan. 29. Impor-
tant business. A LESSEE
Means Saving a PORTION of
What You Earn
Small deposits always acceptable. Don't be afraid
that because you haven't a large amount to cle-
posit with us, that you will not receive courteous
treatment; we take especial interest in the small
depositor and fully realize that he soon becomes
a large depositor.
The president of one of the largest shoe
houses in the world began by making small de-
posits each week from the salary he received
when working in a store.. . The man he worked
for liked his thrift and took him into partner-
ship... About forty years ago he had saved Ten
Thousand Dollars. Today he is worth nearly
Ten Million. Make your own moral. Make
OUR Bank YOUR Bank, and remember this—we
have the State of Oklahoma behind us, and
whether your deposit be large or small—

New Measure Would Open to
Homestead Entry 330 000,
000 Acres of Govern-
ment Lands in West
The Ferris (>4()-acre homestead
bill was favorably reported from
the bouse public lands commit
tee, Monday. The vote was unan
imous. The enactment of this
measure is strongly recommend-
by the interior department
and is expected to become a, law
arlv this session.
The bill applies to 330,000,00
acres of public domain in the
seven public land states of the
•st. and would provide home
steads n mile square to thous-
ands of prospective eiit.rymen.
Development and settlement of
the west demands this increased
area in homesteads, since the 160
acre law is no longer applicable
to present conditions.
