This is the proper time for
the various ladies clubs in the
city to inaugurate plans lor
oeautifying the city. There are
man}' very pretentious homes in
this city where a little more care
given to the lawn and other sur
roundings would work wonder
lul changes jn their appearance
fiven the modest home with
neat surroundings is a pleasure
to the pedestrian and a credit
to the dweller therein. Palls
City in the past has not been a
model town along these lines
:.nd the ladies of the different
clubs have a fertile field in sug
gesting plans for an improve
ment. A general lack of inter
est in the appearance of our
lawns and curb lines gives the
entire city an uncomely appear
ance. How can we work up a
general interest in beautifying
For the first time in several
months we visited our thriving
neighbor town, Verdon, We
were certainly were surprised
at the substantial growth made
and at the large number of at
tractive homes scattered over
the lively village.
While the business portion of
the town has just suffered a dis
astrous tire that mars the pres,
ent appearance, it will not be
many months before this space
will be tilled with substantial
brick buildings and while the
loss is keenly felt at this time
by individuals, the appearance
of the town will be greatly im
proved. Verdon now lias some
very creditable brick buildings,
the best and latest addition be
ing 1 lie opera house block erected
by John Hall, and the home of
the Vedette, built a few years
ago by Charles Umphrey, who
with the able assistance of bis
most estimabie wife, presides
over the village journal in an
able manner and are making
good from every standpoint. It
was through the kindness of this
worthy couple that we were
shown over the town and given
a detailed account of its pro
gressive spirit and they never
lose an opportunity, either by
word of mouth or through the
columns of their ably edited
paper, to dress their home town
in Sunday garb. They also pay
a glowing tribute to their pub
lie schools, presided over by
Prof. Edward Ilodapp, whose
upward course we have watched
with pleasure from childhood to
the present time and we have
never been disappointed in the
fact that he has always made
good in every undertaking.
Hast, but not least, we would
mention the tine mill that would
be a credit to any community
much more pretentious than our
neighboring village. We under
stand that this institution is
running on full time and finding
a ready market for its output
while it adds materially to Ver
don as a wheat market.
.lust a word in regard to the
Transit House, where, in com
pany with brother Umphrey and
his estimable wife, we ate sup
per. We would say that it is
just like going home and enjoy
ing a meal that your mother
cooked. If the public ever mur
mer on the service given them
by Mrs. Moran at that hotel
there is something radically
wrong with the fellow who

A V A L V E I) POSSESSION
Mark Twain savs truth it- one of our most valued possessions
and we ought therefore to use it with the utmost economy. This
rule as suggested by Mark would hardly work in the hanking busi
nes->, for however prudent and economical the banker tnay be about
other things, he must have very extravagant habits in his use of the
truth if he expects to secure and keep the confidence of his patrons.
Economy in this particular would spell ruin. The cornerstone of
the banking business is confidence, and very foolish is that man
who by a single act impairs in the sligbte-t degree this most valua
ble asset. We are constantly striving for the fullest confidence of
the people of this community, and a-- we are convinced that know
ledge begets conlidence we never permit a transaction in this bank
that would cause us embarrassment if exposed to the gaze of the
public. We conduct the business of this bank in such a manner as
enables no to tell the truth about it at all times without fear or favor.
Tell the truth to directors, stockholders and public, then there is
nothing to worry about.
