Talk will break a bank.
Notice to Poultry Owners THE SHAMROCK
A few men will gather on a
street corner and start talking a-
bout the solvency of some bank—
With every telling the report
Within a few hours word gets
spread abroad that the bank is
insolvent, that it was financing
some other institution that had
recently gone into the hands of
a receiver and might be forced
to close its doors any hour.
The result is a run on the bank
and because they are unable to
pay one hundred cents on the
dollar on such quick notice they
are forced to close the doors.
And as a matter of fact it was
TALK that wrought the havoc.

Therefore with this per cent
of their deposits loaned, or even
say 40'i loaned it is impossible
to pay all depositors in full on
the spur of the moment.
While it is true there are often
times crooked bank ollicials and

the banks, it is a fact that

The law took its course last
week when Harvey Church, boy

The cause of his condit ion was
from a hunger strike and had
not prison doctors injected liquid

Because of his weakened and
unconscious condition he was

in marriage to Aaron Terry in
January, 1867. To this union
were born eight children, three
of whom died in infancy. She
was left a widow twenty-nine
years ago and eighteen years lat-

She came to Oklahoma in 1900

been residing in Cashion for
some time past but was called
by sickness to the home of her
son, John, six miles northeast of
Cashion, where she contracted
flu and later pneumonia. She
passed away from this earth life,
at 8:30 Sunday evening, March
5, 1922, at the age of 70 years, 3
months and 17 days.
