|o a land of productive farms Inhab-
ited by a happy, prosperous people.
But thtss changes are small to what

Expression of Appreciation.
In severing my connection with the
First State Banlr of Gray I wish to
extend an expression of thanks to every
citizen who baa helped make this bank
one of the strongest institutions in the
panhandle. It has grown far beyond
my expectations and this ia due to the
loyal support It has received from its
good friends, With justice tc the pub-
lic and my successors I wish to say
they are straight clean men, practical
bankers, who known the needs of the
western people and are financially able
to take care of them. Mr. Jones, the
incoming cashier will be glad to meet
you and get acquainted.
