What 1 his Bank Has Done In
Ii lias furnished competition in the banking line that re-
lieves you from a monopoly of high interest when you want to
It lias placed th' hanking business of Lexington on a -afe
and sound secured basis.
It has proved to the public that it is better to do business
with a secured bank than any other kind.
It has forced our competitor th •Miaranice its depositors
against its w ill.
It has placed IN school districts in this adjoining territory
on an absolute cash basis. These districts had heretofore
been at the mercy of the hanks in discounting their script.
Now a piece of school-script is as good as <4<>'<l whether there
is money in the treasury or not. This banK ami this bank alone
is due credit for these conditions.

petitor to the leading financial institution in Southern Cleve-

their money is -afer in lliis hank than in their pockets.
