$2,500,000 Less in State
Banks Than There Was
One Year Ago.
2 ;i a single state bank in Nebraska

j lut Serretary Royse of the state bank
1 i:ig 'r .iKrd is obliged to report adecrease
' of $2,v) 1,000 in deposits in one year and
; a decrease of $1,000,000 in loans. This
decrease he attributed largely to with
drawals for March settlements and for
the purchase of cheap lands in the newer
unsettled states and in the British pos
sessions. The reserve is 34 per cent or
double the legal requirement. "This
indicates that since last fall's stringency
deople are showing up and paying their
debts," said Secretary Royse. Those
who remember that the state banks' to
tal deposits in iS96 were only about
$11,000,000 as . compared with nearly
$63,000,000 now are disposed to feel that
Nebraska is more than keeping pace

Secretary Royse of the state banking
board, commenting on the quarterly re
port, said: SIX '
"A comparison of this report with the
report of Februaiy 23, 1908, shows -a
shrinkage in deposits of a little, over
one million dollars, and a correspoding
decrease in loans of nearly half a mil
lion dollars. The number of banks have
increased four, with an increase of sev
enty thousand dollars in paid in capital.
Notes and bills re-discounted and bills
payable have been reduced one hundred
and ten thousand dollars.
"Compared with the report of a year
ago, deposits are found to have decreased
about two and one-half million dollars,
and loans have decreased about one mil
' 'A portion of the decrease in depos- j
its, in my opinion, represents unusually
heavy withdrawals for March settle
ments and investments outside of the
state, no inconsiderable part of i 'hich
has gone to British possessions, Texas,
Oklahoma and other places offering
"While a decrease m deposits at this
season is unusual, it will be noted that
loans have also been reduced at almost
the same ration, leaving the banks with
a reserve of 34 per cent, being more
than double the legal requirement, and
indicating that as a result of last fall's
money stringency people are slowing up
and paying their debts. "
The report of the banking department
shows the condition of incorporated, pri
vate and savings banks at the close of
business May 14. The number of banks
reporting was 623 and the total number
of depositors 204,777. The report shows
an average reserve of 33.85 per cent
and an actual cash reserve of 6.4 per
In Honor of Miss Morrisey.
The members of the Das Deutchen
Kranchen club met with Miss Emma
Stanfield Jones yesterday afternoon,
in honor of their member, Miss Jean
Morrisey, who is to depart for her new
home at Spokane, Wash., next Thurs
day. A good time was had by the
young people, who always enjoy them
selves at their meetings, though their
spirits were slightly tempered by the
fact of the near departure of their
friend and member. The home was
decorated with roses and garden flowers,
making a very beautiful and delightful
setting for the occasion. A delightful
two-course luncheon was served by the
hostess, and all departed with the firm
conviction that her's was the power of
entertaining. Those present and to
help add to the occasion were: Misses
Henrietta Marten, Emma and Elizabeth
Falter, Mathilda Soennichsen, Gretchen
Donnelly, Marie Langhorst, Helen
Spies, Esther Larson, Kathryn Wind
ham and their leader, Miss Lena Fricke.
Business Before Health.
The desire to make money is so deep
ly planted among our people, that to it
health and even life is often being
sacrificed. We forget our own bodies
while being immerged in work and busi
ness, for fear, that a slight rest might
offer a welcome opportunity to our com
petitor to jump into our place and rob
US of the fruit of our hard labor. We
deny ourselves the pleasures of life,
working overtime and concentrating
our whole mind on our business, until
the body collapses. The poor stomach
usually suffers the most; instead of sup
plying it with nutritious foods we ofen
whip it only with strong liquor, finally
becoming the martyr of dyspepsia.
strengthen your stomach and the in
testines with Triner's American Elixir
cf Bitter Wine, whenever they are over
worked, weakened and exhausted. It
will heal the inflamed membranes,
strengthen the muscles of the digestive
organs and you will be able to attend
both to your business and to your body.

Yesterday the Ladies Aid society of i '
the Christian church met at the home
of Mrs. Frank Saffer, and were looking
after business strictly, and the way the

parel, one would have thought a new in
dustry had been established in our midst.
They were so imbued with their work j
that all other things had to be disposed
of until the work was accomplished.

Oldham is one of the ablest men in Ne
braska, and our people can expect a
fine oration from each of the speakers.
There will be other amusements in great
variety, such as greased pig, racing,
wrestling match, ball games and other
pleasing events, to numerous to men
