Solve of our capitalists have united Willi the capitalists ami business men of Monona and organized a stato bank there willi a capital of $25,000 and the power to increaso it to $*0,000 if found necessary. The organization has pur- uhsed the banking property and good will of Mr. Killon, who has been doing a private banking business for some time, and who, as well as roost of tho other bosinosi men there, lakes stock in tho new batik. Tho corporation has purchased a lot and will at onno proceed to erect a brick building, with liro proof vault and all modern aocossories. Our towismnn, F. M. Orr. is to be the cashier, and he will conduct the business in some feasible room until the new bank building is completed. Mr. Orr is thoroughly equipped, by education and experience, for the position, having been employed for scvoral yoars in the old Postvllle bank, as well as haviug been ongaged in other commercial pursuits, iu all of which his integrity was unquestioned. We don't know of a belter opening for a good bank than Monor.a, and wo congratulate our sislcr town on this evidence of enterprise and progression. There are few things that give a town moro character and standing than good banking facilities; and now Monona will be better served iu this particular than any olhor town of its size in this part of the state, for most such towns have nothing but private banks. Clothing Talk. Tho Postville Clothing House will he full ol new goods in a few days, as Carl Holtcr loft for Chicago last Monday, lie expected to meet Mr. Alexander, of Wankon, at Dubuque, from there go to Rockford, III., and in company with Mr. Armstrong go to Chicago. Tho three old partnors will do their buying together as nana), but for three different sloros. Although they are separated by distance they are together on business questions. If there are any bargains to bo had in buying they will surely got them and their customers will be benftlittod by the same, as Carl is "in it," has got the energy, push and wherewith t» boy, and by honest and square dealing, which you always can deponti upon, be is bound to make it a success. . We supposed his stock was already ample for tho spring trade, but hn thinks differently. He will add all the very latest styles and take advantage cf any bargains that may bo "lying around loose." . Next week will be the time to visit tho brick clothing store, north of postodicc, if you wish to soc the greatest display in that lino ovtr exhibited in Postville. —4000 Yards New Embroidery just received, sold very Cheap, at Luhman & Sanders'. —C. C. Weber is the new elerk at Gray's clothing store. Ho has had experience and comes well recommended. —It seems that Henry Luhmau was tho "champion liar" at tho Munchau­ sen sociablo last Friday night. This was one of the places where monumental provarieation was commendablo and uomtnon, everyday lyingwasbelow par. LookHoro! For Sale. The delivery outfit of the Postville postoflico, consisting of 4.14 call boxes and !>S luck boxos, all in lip-top order, is for sale CHBAP; to be delivered May 1st. 1892. This is a rare chance. Inquire of A. R. PIIRSCOTT. —Geo. S. Tuttle has purchasod the insnrance business at Spirit Lake owned by K. M. Orr, and has gono there to enter upon his labors. The people of Spirit Lake will lind him strictly upright and worthy of confidence. Wo shall be glad to hear of his prosperity. The REVIEW will furnish him with "tl- dinns from home" each week. —Most of tho schools in tho country as well as in town commenced last Monday, Miss Grace McNeil's among the mini her. -The Mortgage Bank and Investment Company, of Fargo, North Dako tu, writes us that they have farms for sale wjiieh they have obtained at vory low prices under foreclosure, which they will sell at from $i to $7 per acre accepting $50 when the contract ii made, the baianco to be paid in yearly installments. Hosts of these farms have considerable of the land undor cultivation and housesaud barns already built. They also say that thoy will loase sheep and cattle on shares to tho parties purchasing the farms. This would seem to bo a prime opportunity for ambitious young men to obtain start in life. They will send desurip lion and prices to anyone who writes them. 4wS The Bank Statements. It is with pardonable pride that we call attention to the statement) of our two banks in this issue. We feel pride in them because they are Postville institutions and because their success is perhaps as good an index to the growth and prosperity of Postville anil surrounding country »s anything that wo could present. The old Postvllle bank, which was reorganized last June and merged Into tho Postville Stale Bank, with a capital of $50,000 and some of the hcaviost capitalists iu this section connected with it, has grown in business uulil it now has on deposit over $100,000, a much larger sum, wo believe, than was over deposited in Postville In the past whou there was but one bank. While its business is astonishing it is nothing but what might have been expected considering its capital and the unlimited coiitidunco of the public in its management. Ou tho 31st day of August last the Citizens State Bank lirst opened its doors to tho public, seven months and three days before this statement was ordered. It was a new enterprise and an untried oxoriment. Many tho't it could not succeed because it was argued that there was nut sufficient business foi two banks. Even its most sanguine promoters; woro a little doublful of its being a paying investment to the stock holders for a year or two. But still they went forward and completed their new building, putting into it a first class fireproof vault and the latest ami best screw door louble time lock burglar proof safe mid good furniture and fixtures. From tho start the public had implicit confidence u the management, and a; the end. of the tirkt four months it had an established and paying business, with deposits neaily equalling its capital. $25,000. But the last quarter has been phenorai- nal. In that timo it has gained, as will bo soon by the statement, more than 150 per cent, in deposits and its general business is all that could be asked. Not a dollar of its stock can be bought for $1.10. Iu fact it is not known that there is a share on tho market at any price. Wo speak thus nt length of this bank becauso it is a »cw institution and the people have an intrest in its standing and success. Who would have thought a few years or even moathi ago that Postviilo banks would now hold nearly or quite $176,000 in deposits, and the qusstion arises, whore does the money come from? The answer is, from the people, of course. This is a rich section of country and it is constantly growing richer. Many people have had a prejudice against or a fear of the reliability of private banks, and have either kept their money at home, loaned it or sent it away to national banks for safe keeping. Now as botli our banks.arc incorporated undor stalo law and are subjut to state examination, and are compelled to publish sworn statements onoe in three months, thoy are just ns safe as tho henviosl banks in tho country. Hence money is being withdrawn from' these other distant banks and placed here, where it belougs, and tho fnrmers and others who have either little or much surplus monej bring it in and deposit it wilh tho utmost confidence Postviilo may well bo proud of her banks. SOLD OUT! OUR ENTIRE STOCK OF STORE Wlklt BE GkOSRB On the evening of April 19th to invoice. All parties who hold due hills against us will please call and trade them out on or before that date. Parties owing us on account for Merchandise, or notes Due^ will greatly favor us by paying the same at once, or before April 19th. ESTABLISHED 11)83. ; TOSTVillE CLOTHING llOUSkC CARL HOLTEtt, Prop.
