Hostess to Clnb— The young couple lived for a year qn the Dr. Armstrong farm and for threje years on the Norton farm near the riy er. The next year Mr. and Mrs. Craw, Sbrd came to their farm north q Whttemore and this has since been .their home. The year Jhey came to Whittemore, the railroad was bull through It. Mr. Crawford bought tW< first groceries that were shipped by rail Into the town. Henry Munch wrii the store keeper and when the train came Into town with the groceries from Emmetsburg consigned to the Munch store, Mr. Crawford was over there to the depot with his shopping list. Mr, Munch had a scales at the depot and weighed up the first grocery order in Whittemore to Nels Crawford. Mrs. Crawford died in 1911. There were four boys and one girl born to the Crawfords. They are James and Geo who live north of town, Dave of <Vb- sarkee, Montana, Harry in Kansas City Missouri, and Mrs. Cliff Roupe of Whittemore. The Roupe family lives in Crawford's comfortable house in the lorth part of town and he makes his home with his daughter. He enjoys very good health and Is out and about town every day. It will be sixty-two years on June 5, when Mr. Crawford walked into this community from Al- amakee county and it would not sur- Jrise us at all to hear he had char- ered an airplane for that day to take ilm to Allamakee county and back in elebration. We hope he enjoys many more eighth days of Aprils.

If-the bank paid fifty per cent in liquidation, It Is safe to say that it was a solvent bank when closed. Then what about a bank that pays out one hundred per cent under the expensive manner of liquidation. It Is said that the First National Bank of Wesley recently did just that. Then why was this bank closed? Why was the late Peoples State Bank here examined, its affairs overhauled by a bank inspector and given the O. K., and then a, tiew charter refused? paper does not believe ttia either of the Humboldt banks that were closed should have been closed. Did you ever stop to think what It means when a bank Is closed? It means that depositors lose the per cenl of their savings that are dissipated In liquidation. These depositors, especially the time depositors, are the old and dependant people who have finished life's battle and are unable to go out into the world again and remake what they have lost. It means that they will go to their graves—men and women who were formerly respected and self-respecting—on charity's dole. It means privation, hardship and of times death. Go to Fort Des Moines.
