In the amusement programs of
the 1915 State fairs and exposi
tions, peace and prosperity will
be emphasized in every possible
way if plans outlined by William
R. Mellor are carried out. Mr.
Mellor, who is secretary of the
| Nebraska State Faih was electee
president of the American Associa
tion of Fairs and Expositions al
the meeting held in Chicago Iasi
December. Patrons of the State
fairs demand the latest in the wa.v
of amusements. There must be
genuine thrills. Also the amuse
ment features must be clean and
wholesome. These demands make
the selection of the attractions a
difficult and important matter.
Mr. Mello'r was one of the first
State fair officials to advocate the
educational mission of State fairs.
He was born in Porter County,
Ir.d., five miles southwest of Michi
gan City, June 16, 1860. As clerk
in a dry-goods store, traveling
salesman, merchant and real es
tate dealer he received a practical
business education, In 1885 he
homesteaded on a quarter section
of land near Loup City, Nebr.,
where he has since maintained his
residence. He studied law and
was admitted to the bar in 1894.
He was elected a member of the
Nebraska State Board of Agricul
ture in 1898, has served on the
board of managers, was president
two terms, and has been secretary
since 1906.—New York Clipper.

personal effects and in the future
he will not do any farming for

A few remarks against the use
of slang, composed by our office

that gets our Goat it is the use of
slang. Some guys spill so much
of that kind of dope that it is hard
to get wise to their spiel. Kids
should be put next by their par
ents that slang is on the Fritz and
should ought to be cut out. If I
had a kid that couldn’t put over
straight stuff I would wallop the
lining out of the lobster. Skirts
are shines, proper, when it comes
to slang. They think that mercy,

The Comptroller of th<
Currency, at Washington, D
C., has issued instructions tc
all National Banks to posi
tively discontSiue the prac
tice of allowing overdrafts,
and has asked the co-opera
tion of all the State Banks tc
that end.
We will obey this order,
same as we have always
obeyed all laws and orders
of the Federal Banking De
partment, and know that our
customers will not expect us
to do otherwise.
In compliance with above
order, and for the following
reasons, on and after April
1st, next, we will cash no
checks on overdrawn ac
1st. The elimination of
the overdraft practice will in
reality work no hardship on
any one. It will not mean a
dollar less credit to the
bank’s customers, but only
that they will have to keep
what credit they need in the
form of a note, instead of
part overdraft and part note.
-nd. While the overdraft
is used in most instances as
a matter of mere temporary
accommodation, and with the
best of intention, it is in
some instances used to ob
tain, or try to obtain, credit
that could not be arranged
for in the regular way. which
is a source of annoyance to
both bank and to the cus
tomer who presents a check
on which the *bank refuses
3rd. The check is almost
universally used now days,
very little actual money is
handled any more in settling
accounts and the check as
one of the greatest conven
iences of our day should be
made as reliable as the act
ual money itself. ^
4th. Both the National
and State Departments pro
hibit the payment of checks
on overdrafts.
5th. The officer of a bank
that pays a check on an
overdraft is personally liable
under both the National and
State Banking Laws.
6th. It is not considered
good or conservative bank
ing to allow overdrafts.
7th. This notice is issued
in strict compliance with the
law and we ask for your
most hearty and pleasant
co-operation in assisting U9
to obey the Banking Laws
under which we are doing a
Banking Business.
