We call the attention of our custom-
ers and others to the above sworn
statement of our condition at the close
of business December 10 1007. Our
reserve is quite an nmount above that
required by law. We have no loans or
overdrafts with any officer or stock-
holder in this bank. The Assistant
Bank Examiner L. II. Put ton made
his annual examination of our bank on
the evening of December 0 1007 an
I after checking us up assured us that
wo were in excellent condition.
The recent suspension of tho Nation-
al Bank of Commerce in Kansas City
Mo. has not affected us materially.
We are not now nor have we been at
any time in any way associated with or
connected with tho National Bank of
Commeice Kansas City Mo. only
that we have kept a very small balance
with them subject to draft.
All outstanding drafts drawn by this
bank on the National Bank of Com-
merce Kansas City will be taken up
by the New England National Bank
Kansas City. or can be returned to us
and wo will issue new ones on another
bank in their place. At the time of
the suspension of the National Bank of
Commerce our balance with them was
so small that we anticipate no loss
whatever through their closing.

National Bank of
Kansa City IVc. 5 -The National
Bniik of C0.1 iinree- f Kansas City
Mo. failed to open it doors this mori.-
ii g and is in the hands of the natioi al
bank examiner. The bank is onu of
tho oldest hero and is the largest
financial institution in the city.
Thtv following notice was posted on
the door of the bank at 8:30 this morn-
"fhis bank has been closed by order
of i.io l ardoT direolois. It is in the
hrttids of James T. Bradley national
bank examiner by order of the omi -trotler
of currency "
The bunk had been in a weakened
coudrtfou since its last statement
which was issued August 22 last At
that time it was stated the bank owed
the clearing house close to a million
dollars. When thu financial disturb-
ance an 1 thu clearing house decided to
issue clearing house certificates rum-
ors regarding the Commerce's condi-
tion increased until within the past
few days numerous conferences of
other national b inking olllsi.ils hure
were held and means of keeping the
bank open were discussed. Yesterday
much surprise was expressed when the
request of the comptroller for a state-
ment of condition of banks was not re-
sponded to by . the National Bank of
Commerce. Other local banks pub-
lisheiLtheir statements showing a
healthy condition but the officers of
the Commerce announced that its
statement I'ould not bo forthcoming
until this morning. This created
further dNtrust m tho bank's condition
and after conferences lasting into the
early hours this morning the clearing
house officers decided they c.nild not
aid the railing bank.
When the statement of tho National
Bank of Commerce appeared in the
iinirning papers it showed since the
statement of August 22 last the dc.
posits had been reduced from close tc
thirty-fivu millions of dollars to $10-
042004. Thu statement showed also
that the item of loans and discounts
had been ihit down four millions of
The National Bank of Commerce
held the deposits of numerous sjnnll
banks 111 this part of tho southwest.
What effect the failure will have upon
theln is'probluuiatical. On August 22
last the Commerce owed other nation-
al banks $13200450 and statu banks
and bankers $!)S10105. There had
been no run by ocal depositors but
many of the outside banks caused the
trouble by withdrawing their funds on
deposit with tho 0011111100.
The comptroller of tho currency to
day issued the following statement re
garding thu failure of the National
Bank of Commerce of Kansas City :
"Tho comptroller's ollico has been
ad vhed that the officers and directprs
of the National Bank of Commerce ol
Kansas City Mo. d?cided nov M open
its doors to-day. and requested the Na
tional bank examiner to tako charge
until tiieir assets could bo realized on
when there is strong hopes that the
bank may be able to resume.
'This bank is one of tho largest in
the west and in September last had
about thirty-four millions on deposit.
Something like twenty-two millions ol
this was due to other banks. The
failure is doubtless duo to calls which
have been made on the National Bank
of Commerce for theso banking bal-
ances and their inability to realize on
their assets quickly enough to meet
"It is too early for the comptroller's
office to give nny details of tho failire
but it is hoped that the bank will be
found solvent so the depositors can be
paid in full if the bank is not able to

Coopor first advanced his theory that
tho Btomach Is the true scat of llfo

Mr. Cooper who has met with ro-
markablo success In tho salo of his
now medicine believes that tho stom-
ach Is responsible for most Blckncss
nnd that this organ Is weak In tho
present generation. Whllo discussing
this theory recently ho said: "I nm

just half-sick most of tho timo. They

lclno in selling nt such a tremendous

leaps and bounds."
Among moro recent converts to Mr.
Cooper's beliefs Is Mr. Edgar L. Hinds
living ot C Tappan Street Everett
Mass. Mr. Hinds has this to say on
"I havo Buffered with Btomach
trouhlo for olght years. I wob not flick
enough to bo In bed but Just felt bad
all tho time. My greatest trouble was
that I always felt tired would get up
in tho morning feeling as tired as
when I went to bed.

Beaver Banks Not Involved.
The failure of the bank of Commerce
has had no depressing ellct on the
banks of Beaver.
The bank of Beaver City has never
had any deposits with tho closed bank
nor been connected with it in any way.
The State Bank has used that bank for
a conespondent but at the time of its
failure had only a small deposit and
hence will not lose a cent.
We are indeed gratilled to know that
o"r banks were clear of this failed in-
stitution ntrl it shows good business
judgment on their part that they were
not tied up with it as most banks In
this section deal with tho Commerce.

If all of that young lady's birthdays

that when she presides in thu culinary
