Though prairie fires arc no longer a problem, it is still wise at this season of the year to look to fire precautions on your property. Anything that can be classed a fire hazard should be replaced. Where this bank can provide aid and assistance for such purposes, it is glad to do so. IOWA RALPH IMTI.LKU, President . HAROLD GILIMORK, Cashier ROY IHcMAIIOX, Asst. Cashier •^f Warning against accidents in the home and on the highways is old stuff to most of us. Many industries have made real progress in accident prevention, but our homes continue to produce minor and major injuries on an ever-increasing scale. In spite of every precaution, accidents will occur. When the "ounce of prevention" fails, it is wise to have "the pound of cure" ready and at hand. See that your medicine cabinet is amply stocked with standard first-aid materials. Keep a first-aid kit in the pocket of your car. We shall be pleased to help you select the essential items from our complete stock. THUENTE PHARMACY BAND MOTHERS AT LONE ROCK MEET Lone Rock: Mrs. Lnwrence Newbrough and Mrs. Edw.
