THIS WORLD HAS BEEN DIVIDED
And sub-divided the people of the
world have been divided and sub-divided
the sub-divisions are endless.
Suppose we divided the people
into three classes. The very rich,,
who can afford to spend their in
come; the very poor, who have to
spend theirs. Then there is the
third class the saving class, who
start saving their money and keep
it up continually. They never
stoj). The habit is formed early
in life and they can't "swear off."
The saving habit is the means to
happiness and contentment.
This bank offers the opportunity for
every man to save his money. No one
can afford to let the chance escape.

POINT FOR STANDARD
Oil Trust Has One of Its Cases
Thrown Out of an Ohio
JUDGE SAYS NO JURISDICTION
Doe Not Help the Trust Much, far
the Indictments Still Hang
Ovrr lu Head.
Findlay, 0., Dec. 25. The Standard
Oil company won a victory In common
pleas court here when Judge W. 8.
Duncan decided that the probate court
had no Jurisdiction in the suit brought
against it in the probate court, and
threw out the recent verdict of guilty
against the company. Prosecutor Da
vid some time ago tiled an lnforma
tion In the probate court against the
Standard, charging It with violating
the anti-trust laws of the state. He
maintained that he could get action
quicker against the company by this
proceeding than through indictments
in tho common pleas court.
Itoi-kelVUer Indictments Stand.
The Standard attorneys contended
that the probtite court had no Jurisdic
tion In tlie matter; that If there had
I'een a violation of the law the prose
cutor should have proceeded against
the company through indictments. This
po'tit was upheld by Judge Duncan,
lunj the case Is thus thrown out of the
probate court. Tills decision in no way
nitccts the Indictments recently re
turned in common pleas court by the
grand Jury against John D. Itocke
feller nnd the other otlicials of the
Standard Oil company, charging them
with violating tlie anti-trust laws.
None of the Standard otlicials was In
court when tho decision was rendered,
hut tlie company was represented by
its attorneys. It is understood that
the prosecution will appeal the case
to n higher court.
Provision Not In the Statute.
Judge Duncan, In rendering his de
elclon. said In part: "The court of
common pleas has power to review pro
ceedings and Judgments of the probate
court in misdemeanor cases, under sec
tion 7r.."rt revised statutes, although the
two courts may have concurrent orig
inal Jurisdiction therein. The probate
criminal coile containing no provision
whereby service may bo hnd upon a
corporation the probtite court has no
Jurisdiction to try either an Individual
or a corporation under the Valentine
Must (o to the Common I'lcas.
"Section 0472 revised statutes pro
viding that 'the provisions governing
criminal proceedings In the court of
common pleas shall so for as nppii" .
