She was a good home anywhere. I j ' i i p my mind to take a trip home to icccivcd several boxes containing a p - l t h e old country, as my folks in the : ~ ~ = I old home In Lancashire were contin- j ually writing for me. There was quite a gatheiing at Apaques when I finally left for good and all, which expressed heartfelt sorrow as I departed especially old Apaque, who declared I was the only real friend ever he had had in his life. As I departed they lined the shore and tho cries of "Come back to us, we shall always be thinking of your return," could be loudly heard. I felt sorry to depart from such friends. But a good last- Ing ttprlver trade had now been firmly established, so I parted without a single regret excepting at the loss of true friends, which is a high loss at all times. A "Speatsh" to Nina On my return to our supply stores I met many new friends. The little French soldier who had served me so well when I was in need of help at Jssange Island had received his ! final order for his up country journey to join de Brazza and we spent the night enjoying ourselves and I saw him off with his fleet of canoes next morning. He was a Brctton from Brlttainy and was fine company. We quit the best of friends and he carried my respects to his chief de Brazza. I now proceeded up the Angani on my last trip carrying as welt as a large tow the traders who were following their calling in that part of the country. We had a great trip as j I told them it was my last trip and I was home sick, I bid fond good buys to the old king of the Evilleys and his chiefs and they gave me a royal send off telling me to be sure and return after my trip and bring back the White Lady (The Presbyterian missionary). Old Injttky expressed great reluctance at my part- Ing but this had to be. I arrived at our new station without mishap only Old Peter Nollan was down with slight fever chills. was next ordered to Gaboon for a small tow and also some passengers who were anxiously waiting. All my accounts I had made out. I had a fine ballance and I took the news of my intending departure to Sinclair. I had a fine record and I was satisfied and this I carried with me. We had a fine trip down the river and I called only for a couple of hours at Ninas and told her what I had done. And that as soon as was able I would see to her escape and would see she was free as an Engelangl (white bird from the sea). I could see the emotions I had produced In the Inmost soul of Nina. She looked superb under the effect of my little whispered speatsh. And all she answered was I am ready at any time. And as I parted she gave me a most thankful smile. The rest of the attendants at the Josh house I left either drunk or half drunk ani} was soon well on my journey to Gaboon. Coming "Incog" Poor Peter now got much worse in spite of the attention I could bestow on him and as we had a rough passage by sea It aeemed to make him worse. On landing he was sent immediately to the French hospital but only lived a few days after I left Gaboon on my return journey. I gave In my resignation to Mr. Carlisle our chief agent, handed over my accounts, etc.. and we spent the night in his sanctorum as he had very little time for conversation during the I told him I might have a visit from a college friend of m l n p who contemplated visiting the coast for a couple of months shortly and when I told him who he was he I laughed and said Birds of a feather.

MARY'S HOSPITAL Mrs. Ivy McCune, 1145 East Moore street, underwent a minor operation Tuesday morning. Florine Rickey, 1270 East Johns street, underwent an operation to reset her arm Tuesday morning. The arm which was broken some time ago healed but had to be straightened in the last operation. Claud Hesler, Lovington, underwent a minor surgical operation Tuesday morning.

For a time after the merger of the two banks, Ralph Snyder, now of Decatur, remained with the consolidated institutions as president. Since that time the Snyder family has been out of active management of the bank, although some Investment In the bank's stock has been retained. The old V. Snyder bank was a private concern. When it became apparent that legislation would be passed requiring all banks to secure either a state or national charter, the Snyder bank had, choice of changing its system of operation, or uniting with a chartered bank. The choice was to consolidate with the First National. The Ayars Brothers' private bank was also absorbed by the First National. Peak Year in 1919 Following this move, the consolidated bank, under the administration of Ralph Snyder, saw its business volume increase until it reached $1,300,000 in deposits during the peak year of 1919. Mr. Snyder left the bank about six years ago, selling his interest to Gid Housch, who became president. In the last meeting of directors before Mr. Snyder left the institution, he pointed out the tendency toward lower deposits, and advised an orderly reduction of loans, to maintain a properly balanced condition. Under the presidency of Mr. Housch, total loans increased. After Mr. Housch sold his interest in the bank to Mr. Humphrey, a program of reduction of loans was adopted but reduction was not accomplished rapidly enough to prevent necessary assets of the bank becoming "frozen." ONLY $8 NEEDED FOR PORCH FOR SICK H. S. GIRL Decatur police have been instructed to kill all dogs which do not bear a tag showing vaccination or have not been provided with muzzles it was announced Wednesday In an attempt to prevent trouble from rabies this summer. The instructions have been given by the state .department of health. Owners must either restrain their dogs under leash, muzzle, or vaccinate them, it was decided in view of the fact that 80 percent of the thousand dog heads examined by the state department of public health this spring have been found to be suffering from the disease. Macon county is included in the state list of localities from which three or more dogs suffering from the disease have been examined, and every precaution is to be taken to prevent the disease from spreading. Veterinaiians in Decatur say that these figures show what may virtually be called an existing epidemic of the disease. Vaccination is the safest and surest method of preventing the disease they say. A number of owners have already brought their dogs to the veterinarians for this treatment. DEATHS AND FUNERALS MBS.
