Frank Rrandall informs us that t
some one climbed up through 1
one of the manholes of the
power house of the city electric
plant and stole three belts. One
was the wide drive belt and the
other two were smaller. The
door is fastened with a spring
Io3k and easily opened from the
iaside so the thieves had no diffi-
cilty getting away with their
booty. Frank says he piled some
heavy stones on the manhole cov
ers and the next person will prob
ably be treated to a surprise if he
succeed in pushing one over.

Did you ever give thought to the fact that it is largely due
to the material aid and encouragement given by banks and
bankers that this is a country of h > raes and home owners ?
Do you realize that this aid and encouragement , which has
been such a help in making improvements and advancing property -
erty values , was possible only because many people deposited
in banks their surplus money , the money for which they had
no immediate use ?
Individually these accounts were small , collectively they
stand for the world's progress.

better town , a better trading point and a more prosperous com
