SAVE THE BIRDS
TO THE BANK ADDRESSED:
Whereas it has been called to our
attention by the. president of the
State board of Agriculture that much
of the stock shipped to the stock-
yards for sale is utterly unfit- for
slaughter and that groat economic
waste is occasioned by freight being
paid on the cattle from the farm to
the stockyards and back from the
stockyards to the farm.
And Whereas, our attention has
also been called to the fact that there
are less cattle in Oklahoma today
than there were at the beginning of
statehood, and at the present time
there are 35,000 farms in Oklahoma
without any cattle whatever.
And Whereas, it has further been
called to our attention that in ail
probability there will be less than
400,000 bales of cotton ra'sed in this
state, occasioned by the bob weevil,
which expedience teaches will likely
continue for several years necessi-
tating the discontinuance of large
cotton acreage and the divers n ation
of crops; that the state has unusual
com and feed crops which gives an
opportunity to start on this new pro-
gram, which has been well expressed
in the advice that each farm have at
least "a cow, a sow, two dozen hens
and a rooster." * .

to secure this, we will have to know
who will be willing to have these pic-

for a photographer to visit Lexing-

friends, to let them know that you
are still good looking and live ill the

AMillionDollars in Sheep
in Oklahoma. IZ ffJlX'ZL
Not long ago there were very few sheep in Oklahoma. A num-
ber of farmers, after advising with their hankers, obtained ex-
perimental flocks and found them successful. Today there are
more than 100,000 sheep in Okahoma. Adding more than $1.-
000.000 to the wealth of the state.
The banker is interested in anything that will promote the
welfare of the community or the state. He always is ready and
willing to advise with the farmer or business man upon any
new step under consideration.
We want you to feel that the experience of the officers and
directors of this bank is at your disposal.
And don't forget that deposits here are guaranteed by the
STATE DEPOSITORS' GUARANTY law.
