The Bank of Commerce was the ob

was solvent. Mr. Stilz supplemented
this with a statement that all depos

had the misfortune to injure his left
foot very badly the latter part of
last wee when he jumkped from a
wall onto some hay. He struck his
foot against a stone that was con
cealed in the hay and Dr. Worth
man was obliged to put his foot in
a plaster cast. He was unable at
first to determine whether the foot
was broken or not, but after keeping
it in a cast for a few days, he will be
able to tell more about it. It may
be necessary to have an X-ray taken
of the foot. After the first day and
night he did not suffer very much
from it, and it is to be hoped that
it may not prove so serious as was
at first feared.
