There is nothing about a town that
will show the real stability of the
town and its business resources as
will the financial statements of its
banks. In this issue of The Herald
will be found the statement of the
three banks of the city issued on call
of the comptroller of currencey at
Washington and the state banking
board. These statements show the
banks and their patrons to be enjoy-
a high degree of prosperity. These
statements are of the Hugo National
bank, the First National bank, and
the First State bank, and will be
Tound on page twq of this issue. Look
them over and you will find that
there is on deposit in the banks of
the city $732,543.02: there is $245,-
327.52 cash in the three banks. With
this large amount of money in the
local banks there is no immediate
danger of a money stringency in Hu-
The men at the heJd of these banks
are men who have the confidence oi
.he public and they command the re-
spect of the people of the county and
state by their strict attention to the
banking business and their conserva-
tive banking methods. The total re-
sources of the thnee banks is $956,-
514.42, and there are few cities in the
state who can show a better banking
