We take this method of publicly thanking our friends for their valuable patronage during the past year, which has been the mo&
successful! in our history, and at the same time we extend New Year Greetings, wishing each one increased prosperity during 1914.
We beg to call especial attention to our statement published above and invite a careful Study of the comparisons with preceding years.
It will be noted that our resources have increased to more than $355,000.00 and our deposits and net earnings show re
markable gains over last year. Our largely increased resources enable us to be in a position to extend greater accom
modation to our customers and we hope to add many new names to our books during this New Year.
