It was an unpleasant surprise to the.patrons and creditors, the liabilities, it is understood, being- SSO.OOO, and the assets nothing. The houso was heavily on the bear side of the market, and the recent rise in wheat and pork proved too much for the firm, Branch OfHc«* Clone.

When the bank sent its paper to the clearing- house Wednesday afternoon the directors of the association on motion of Cashier Guthrie, of the National Lafayette bank, suspended payment on the paper and ordered an investigation of tho bank's condition.
