Such inquiries are for information about the attitude of business men and farmers towarda a new institution, general business conditions here, size of trade territory and other pertinent questions. Several Swea Cltyans have Bald they-' are ready to buy bank stock, although none has announced the extent to which he would Invest. It Is generally agreed, particularly among business men and farmers whose activities reach to any proportions, that the community has gone long enough without a bank.

Cash in If and Advertise in The Kossuth County Advance AN OLD STOVE in the BASEMENT TIMES like this no one means to be, wasteful and yet the most flagrant form of wastefulness is to withdraw from use things that can still render service and economy to some one. When you do so you forego the cash you can obtain from them by re-sale and you deny others of the practice of thrift that arises from making use of things they can buy and utilize without paying the "first hand" price. Why not sell to eager buyers what you don't or cannot use? There are hundreds of them reading the Want Ads every day for just such chances.
