DON'T THIS SOUND SAFE?
Article One, Section Ten of the banking laws of the state of
Oklahoma, reads as follows:
'No hank shall employ its moneys directly or indirectly
in trad*' or commerce by buying or selling goods, chatties,
wares, merchandise or products of the country, unless such
securities or purchase be necessary to prevent loss upon a
debt previously contracted in good faith."
The violation of thisj act by the officers or directors of
any bank organized or existing under the laws of this state,
shall be suflieient cause to subject the bank to be closed and
liquidated by the Bank Commissioner."
It is needless to explain that no bank organized under the
Guarantee laws of the state of Oklahoma, buys cotton or any oth-
. All banks are allowed to advance Seventy-Five per cent of
the actual cash value of all farm products, to assist in the mar-
keting of such commodities.
1 his bank is always ready to assist the farmer in any way
that is within the bounds of the Oklahoma Banking Law and
sound and conservative banking.
You will always find us ready, and willing to help you out in
the marketing of your cotton.
But you can rest assured that the SECURITY STATE
BANK has never, and what is more, never will buyer speculate
in cotton or any other farm products, as we are very careful to [g
follow the spirit of the banking laws of the state of Oklahoma.

One would not expect to find
poetry in the debates over the free
list, the wool schedule, or the pub-
licity of elections bill; and yet the
Congressional Record not infre-
quently lapses into poetry, more
often perhaps when eulogies are
being pronounced, but with com-
parative frequency at all times.
Congressman Kent, of California,
is a genuine poet at heart and he
can even indite verse on the tariff.
Champ Clark is as full of poetry
as he is of religion and politics.

plored and threatened loss of Mr.
Bartlett's friendship, and said, that
if indeed those ties must be served

Congress has been studying the
cold storage question for some time
but it appears that they have trc ub-
les in this line abroad also. Our
consul at Birmingham, England,
reports that the Federation of Gro-
cers' Association of the United
Kingdom has brought to the atten-
tention of the Government alleged
abuses of the cold storage system'
and that steps will be taken to in-!
elude all the egg-producing eoun- j
trieij of Europe in the campaign.
