Very substantial gains in 'deposits were also reported by this county's two other banks, the Mississippi County Bank at Osceola and the Bank of Wilson at Wilson. AS of December 31 Uiere was on deposit In the three banks of the county $4,189,668.95, divided as follows; Farmers Bank and Trust Co., $2,480.382.47; Mississippi County Bank, $1,205,357,53; Bank of Wilson, $503,928.96. At the worst of the depression, about four years ago, total deposits in the county were considerably less ; than a million dollars. A year ago deposits in the Farmers Bank totaled $1,417,000.85. . Cash on Hand Is Up The Farmers Bank report shows cash on hand and in other banks of $1.501,846.89, nearly- two aiid one-half times what U was a year ago. The increase in tills figure reflects the rise in deposits and'a decline ill loans and discounts from $615,657.69 a year ago to $109,729.63 as of December 31. Loans and discounts are also low at the other banks in the county, amounting to £ only $67,68? at Osceola and $83 l' 684.94 at Wilson. Commenting on his bank's re ;porl, B. A. Lynch, president of the .Farmers Bank and Trust Co., said • that the great rise in i volume of deposits a ml i the. five n. greater m- •;-?!crease .in cash'on hand reflected the Improved economic condition of the community. " 'Deposits at Peak As; the result of an unusually'good' cotton crop and a good price for cotton, he said, farmers in general made monjy during 1936 and many of them how have substantial bank deposits. He pointed out, however, that the.year-end figures can hardly be regarded as typical because they reflect the approximate peak both in deposits and i n cash on hand. Withdrawals-and loans to finance operations during the new year will t>s made, beginning soon ,The great decline in loans and discounts since n "year ago, Mr. • Lynch said, was due primarily to the closing out of Commodity Credit Corporation cotton 'loans, of which the bank had about $400 000 a year ago, and to some extent to the improved ability of customers of the bank to liquidate theif ob, ligatlons.
