THE SUBEST BO AD TO WEALTH IS THBOUG-H LIBERAL ADVERTISING-1
The work of securing a complete
enumeration of soldiers, Bailors null
marines who served In the late war,
aud of the widows of the deceased
soldiers, etc., was not completed dur
ing the late census, as mauy soldiers
did not realize the importance of the
work, and full records were not ob
tained in many cases. In order to
make the work complete, the posts of
the G. A. R. will contiuue It, and will
receive cards from the census office
that will contain the necessary ques
tions, Comrades In this vicinity
whoso records were not fully or cor
rectly given, or not given at all, will
help In the work by applying to F. H.
Hopkins, adjutant of the local post.
It Is one of the most important
branches of the census work, and the
value that Bates' history has been is
an indication of how useful a volume
containing the records and addresses
of all the veterans in the country will
be. The work will include about
1,600,000 names, and will make eight
large volumes. The matter is made

Wasiuxoton, Juno 15. Tho statement
prepared by Comptroller Lacoy and sont
to Mayor Stuart, of Philadelphia, on the
course pursued by him with tho Key
stone Bank of that city, has just beon
made public hero. Tho statement in
cludes tho letter of Bank Examiner Drew,
ot Jan. 84, notifying him of the $000,000
defalcation ot Lucas, tho luto president
of the bank.
In this letter Mr. Drew oxplalns how
by adroit manipulation of tho accounts
of tho bank, Lucas, with tho assistance
of Marsh, tho former president of tho
bank, abstracted large sums of money
from tho bank to uso in real estate spec
ulation. Marsh, ho reported, was lgnor
ently led into these transactions.
Accompanying this letter was a prelim
inary statement of tho bank's condition
which left a capital stock of half n mil
lion intnet nnd a not surplus of $55,810.
Later on, January 27, Mr. Drew In an in
terview with-tho Comptroller, stated that
the property convoyed to tho bank by the
Lucas estate, was equal In valuo to the
Indebtedness wkUk had been concealed.
Mr. Lacey says ho did not closo the bank
then for the reason that bo had no law
ful authority to do so upon tho facts sub
In answor to criticisms for delay In ap
pointing a receiver, Mr. Lacey Bays It

was tho duty of tho Comptroller to faclll

In concluding tho statement Mr. Lacey
"I doem It my duty to say that, In my
opinion, tho several reports made by the

men, tho groatost part of whoso lives
have beon spent on tho backs of Mexican
mustangs and Texas bronchos roaming the

ithont whoso aid tho great and fertile
districts now studded with cattle ranches
would to-day be a howling wildorness, and
the oastorn necessities of tho table, tan-
yard and factory would bo limited indoed.
Tho spring of tho year Is tho cowboy's
harvest. During "Kound Up" many a
trong friendship is renewed and many
moro made; the cattlo for milos around are
brought together at a certain point and
time by tho ranchors, and each rancher's
cowboys aro requirod to cut from this im-
monso herd all cattlo bearing his rospectivo
brand or brand, and drive to his rancho.
Then comes tho branding. If a branding
hoot bo not at hand, each animal has to bo
lassoed and thrown, then branded with a
hot iron. Although a littlo p iinful to tho
animal at the time, yet it is the only way
by which the owners can toll their stock
from tho surrounding cattlo. Pawnco Bill,
at great expense, has brought from the
plains of Texas and tho Indian Territory.a
icked band of tho most scientific lasso-
throwers and broncho riders, headed by
tho famous plainsman, Mustang Walter,
and at each performance they will lasso
and brand cattle, rido bucking bronchos,
pick up coins from the ground, mount and
dismount while their horses aro running at
full speod. Their part of tho performance
is wonderful, and cannot bo highly appro
elated by all who witness it.
