He is about 05 years of age and t>!o bank lias been in oi>eralion liere for about twent.v-five years. Mr. Dale left town on Saturday night, prc-siiraalily to visit his father. The bank has paid 4 per cent. Interest, and has enjoyed the coufldenceof. depositors Jiom a wide icrrltorj-.

I .-: 1: WATCH FOR "THE COUNT I OF MONTE CRISTO" j AT THE BIJOU I following is a synopsis ot the first two of tiie five reels of this great human interest drama to be shown on April !' and 7, The other reels will be synopsized in the next three issues: Reel No, L-Kdmond Dantcs, a young Kfillor in the service of the I'hnrnoli, prior to a long voyage takes leave of his invalid father nncT his sweetheart Mercedes. Tne tender farowell with Mercedes arouses the jealous hatred of Fernand, a Catalan fiBliermnu. secretly in love with Mercedes. Dauies gives .Mevcmles a (brooch, which later agiiiu fisures in the story. In mid-sea the captain of the Pliaraoii suddenly dies, and eu-trusts Uantes with a nrivate letter from Oneral IMurut to the exiled emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte, at KUba. I Uanglara overhears the captain's dy-' ing request, and keeps the knowledge in the event of future need. When tho vessel touches Elba, Dantes delivers the letter to the deposed emperor, and promises to deliver .Vajioi-; con's reply to Noirtier, of the liona-; parte cominiti.eo. Iu Dante's arisence Kernard urges his hope'less suit lo Mercedes. On the return of the Piiaraoli, .Morell, its owner, makes Dante captain of the vessel, a post which Oanglars had hoped lo oeeure. I Reel No. 2.-Fernand and Danglars ' write on anonymous letter to Vllle-; fort. King's Attorney, accusing I>antcs I of delivering contraband communica- II ions between Napoleon and his lieutenants. The nnirriago o," Dantes I ;ind .Mercedes is consummated sim- j ultaneously with the discovery ot the guilty communication. To save his hiUfVbrother, Noirtier, of the Honn-liarte Committee, to whom the letter from the exi'led Emperor is addressed, . AMUefort causes Dantes to be appre- hiended at his wedding feast and Imprisoned in tli9 Chateau D'lf. Deprived of Ills son'.s support, Dantes' father dies ot starvntion. Mercedes, ' believing DantBs dead, and for the sake of her fatherless child, .'Vlbert, -promises to marry Fornand on hig return from tho war. Meanwhile, with^ a loiio. but supreme, hoie, Dantes . works to cut a ttinuel tliroufih Va,* ;stone wall to liberli',. . . 20 5206 ;
