DON'T PUT IT OFF
ORDER YOUR FERTILIZER NOW
Pres Nunn, of the Farmers Union,
Advises Members To Place
Orders Early—Wants Union Men
To Experiment With Chemicals.
Westfield, N. C.. March 0.
Bro. Editor :
Now is the time for all the
members of the union in Stokes
to complete the plans about
spring fertilizers, and I want to
warn the members to be on the
• lockout for traitors. Each local
should fret together and make
out its orders for fertilizer and
send them in to your agent which
f r ou have elected to handle ferti
izer at each station, and if you
find one or more of them not.
doing his duty just turn him
down and elect another man.;
Now, don't wait until just before
you get ready to use your goods
before ordering, but get them up
right now, ana send them in, for
if you do wait I assure you that
some one will again be disap
pointed and then blame the un
ion with it when you are to
blame yourselves. Now, don't
make a mistake, but get up your
orders and take or send them to
your agent and insist that he
makes all necessary arrangements
, to handle same and if he won't
get busy get you another man.
Now, a word to vou agents.
Your brethren placed enough
confidence in you to elect you to
this important place, and then if
you fail, it will mean that the
\ organization will be injured. But
x I feel assured that each union
man in Stokes will do his duty.
If he don't he ought to be kicked
out of the organization.
• Each member should try some
chemicals this spring. In my
judgment all together would be
the best, but if you don't want
to risk them under your entire
crop, by all means try a few.
There is nothing like experiment
ing for yourself to find out jwhat
you need. So, let's all of us try

BANK OF STOKES PROSPEROUS
Pioneer Financial Institution Mak
ing Steady Progress—A Trumen
riuous Factor In the Upbuilding
of the County.
The growth of the Rank of j
Stokes County, our county's pi
oneer financial institution, is
very gratifying to the Bank's
friends and patrons. A late'
statement issued by the Bank j
reads tike this :
l«oans $ 74,2u9 83 i
Banking Houses 2,873 53
Furniture and Fixtures 2,712 02,
Overdrafts, secured 539 72'
Cash on hand 49,808 54'
Capital, Surplus and
Undivided Profits $ 13,070 58
Deposits 117,133 00,
The Bank calls special atten-i
tion to its cash reserve, probably 1
larger in proportion to deposits
than that of any other bank in
the State; to the steady rise of
deposits, showing a growth of
nearly 25 per cent, in twelve
months, and to Uie continuous
increase of ie Surplus Fund,
this being th amount left over
from the net earnings, and undi
vided, being similar to an in
crease of the capital.
The people are more and more
learning that every dollar sent:
away from Stokes makes our
county one dollar poorer, and j
that money kept in other coun-1
ties, where it is invested by
other bankers not always to the
best interests of Stokes people,
is not conducive to the develop
ment of Stokes county trade and j
The Bank of Stokes County is j
destined to be a tremenduousj
factor in the future upbuilding
of our county, and for this rea
son especially it deserves the
support of every Stokes citizen, j
