Bradley, State Bank Exam iner, made an examination Thursday of the Gaston Bank & Trust Co., n hich closed it* doors Wednesday, with a view to panning upon the bank’* solvency. U bile the examination had not been completed late Thursday afternoon. Mr, Bradley had gone sufficiently into the hank'* affairs to satisfy himself, according to his statement made to The Standard, that the bank is not insolvent. “It appears.** said Mr. Bradley, after making the positive statement that the bank is not insolvent, “that the bank has suffered very serious withdrawals in its deposits recently, Its collections have been slow, due to a succession of bad crop years.” T hile the hank examiner would not make a definite statement as to the Hank’s condition nor as to his future course with reference ‘.hereto, he stated that it is unusual to permit an institution which is not insolvent to continue closed, and that in all probability ways and means would be found by which the bank can be safely reopened for business. In the opinion of the bank examiner depositors and creditors may be inconvenienced by waiting for some time for tNdr deposits, bat they should suffer no ultimate lorn by reason of thexkming of the bauk.

Figures for the last two years indicate the truth of his I bin kens About eight years ago. Prof. Con rad] of Clemson College addressing}^ IWO an Aiken audience, made the prophecy    and    organization,    necessarily    so The annual report of Dr. Charles I Hall Farmer, director of the Aiken!

The County Health Department was made possible by the county delegation at the meeting of the legislature The first year was one of 'n a county the    I    \ ken. which is the fourth largest in South Carolina.

Hie average yield of cotton before the advent of the weevil was approxi-; mately 39,000 bales. The largest yield on record was in 1918 when the coun-l ty ‘produced 52,414 bales. In 1923 the yield was 26,700 bales, and up to December I of this year, 27,744 bales | have been ginned. It is reasonable to' suppose that the total production this year will be at least 19,000 bales. We-()iuhnak umlt,r 4.orUro may therefore confidently expct in the future an average production of around 30,000 bales. The cost of production has increased considerably but to offset this, farmers have received an increase of over UM} per cent in the price at which this cotton has been sold. — .    — Of vast imports r oe is the fact that our people as a rule have produced their food and feet! stuff at home.
