IN ANNUAL MEET |
Farmers & Merchants Bank
Officers and Directors
The Farmers and Merchants bank
held its 23rd annual stockholders
meeting here January 27.
The president's report, read before
the Meeting, showed the bank had a
healthy growth in 1927 and for the
first time since 1919, showed resources
over one million dollars. The atten
tion of the stockholders was called to
the fact that this means nothing un
less the resources of the bank are
worth the money. The president ex
plained in detail and anyone familiaa
with "values knows his money is safe
in the Farmers and Merchants bank.
This bank with most all banks in
Eastern Carolina has had a hard
time in the past few years. It has
however, stood every test and has al
ways served the best interest of this
community with safety to its deposi
tors. Mr; R. W. Salsbury, vice presi
dent, stated to the stockholders that l
it was the duty of every bank that
wished to intelligently and safely pro
tect its patrons, to guide the people
in lines of safety in investments and '
the wasteful spending of money. !
A standing vote of thanks and en- 1
dorsement of the year's work just i
ended, were given the directors for
the splendid manner in which they I
have handled the affairs of the bank.
The following officers and direc
tors were re-elected: John D. Biggs,
president, C. D. Cnrstarphen, vice
president, R. W. Salsbury, vice presi
dent, J. Eason Lilley, vice president,
C. D. Carstarphen, jr.,. cashier and

and when the firemen reach the build
ing they ecountered much difficulty in
combating the smoke and flames The
fire had burned its way through the
basement ceiling and was burning in
the walls and ceiling of the second
story before it could be checked. A
stream of water from a main hose
waa used in the basement while the
small chemical hoae was brought into

of the building. The/greater part of
the damage resulted When the firepien
were forced to rip the base boards

Considering the facts in the mat
ter ,it.isnt a question of who will

question as to how additional fund ■
will be raised. A loan from the Spec
