Car of the local banks shews an in
crease in deposits amounting to $U>-
Cs. 74 over those of March 71. I 9£.
ether statements show ecfaally as
large an increase in depoaits.
U hen you look into the state meats
iss ed by the hank* and see the in

prosperity can he expected. Bat oace
yeu see the reverse taking place aad
shown by the statements, nothing hut
a cessation of prosperity ran be ex-j
pectcd. so once yoa ee the banks
and continuing in grov-tk,
all is 'ell and good. Mart ■ r county
rwv has as si rone bonks as fooisi
in bm»: any county that is located m
an Agricultural section. And more, the
banks are being led by competent
men. for instance the North Carolina
Association roan to Maitin
to select its president. So it is on thru
out the hankinjr reahn in this court \
that you v.ill fin.: men devoting their
th«;r entire lives to the business.
The six statements as published in
