A careful perusal of the reports re

Southwestern Banker's statements

banks on February 5 1!01 were J:!."-

Massachusetts has a law known as
the "senit-cdion law" under which a
misplaced semi-colon regulates tha
liquor traffic in the city of Boston.
But this Is not a circumstance to an
omitted comma as Instanced in the
following act of the last legislature
of Massachusetts: "Whoever operates
an automobile or a motor-cycle on any
public way or private way laid out
under the authority or law reoklessly
or while under the influence of
liquor or so as to endanger
the lives or safety of the
public" etc. It Is nw asserted that
the reckless motorist can go as he
pleases on highways which have not

As we look over the busy tugs of
New York harbor we little realize
the dangers and responsibilities of the
busy life of these "draught horses" of
the deep. Day and night in all kinds
of weather they are hustling here and
there about their various troublesome
tasks. When a big liner or any other
crart is in distress by fire or stia..:
ing or other accident the ubiquitous
tug Is the first upon the scene to save
life or property. Some of the harbor
craft have eventful histories worth a

We desire to call your attention to the growth of our deposits since the Guaranty Law took effect and especially
during the last eighty days. Since the last Call Statement we have gained $11800000. This growth we attribute to
the State Guaranty Law mainly and to the fact that our policy has always been to take care of our customers and to
treat them with courtesy and consideration. We would be glad to number you among our rapidly increasing army of

do not live at all unless you live in

There are two reasons why Okfohomans should do business
with state Banks.
' i . I i i l - . '
FIRSTBecause a.Iand owner can use his land as a basis of security and
back his money wants with a low rate of interest. "
SECOND- Because the Oklahoma laws protect the depositor by a guarantee
which husbands his money while on deposit and makes the banks
contribute to a fund out of which in case of failure he is to be paid.
