What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

As the volume of business done by a bank is somewhat of a barometer of local conditions, we take pleasure in giving a short biography of our local institution.—Ed. It was about three years ago that a body of public spirited men met and decided that Geyser was destined to be a city, and such being the case the town should have a bank, and if a bank, a good one. To be a good bank it must be one of ample capital, have a representative body of shareholders and have a building and equipment that would serve for years to come. It is easy to work tip a spirit of en- thusiasm over a new enterprise but, to dig down and put up Twenty five Thousand Dollars in cold cash for a business proposition in a town. scarce six months old takes nerve that is bred only in men who live in the big North West. Among the original subscribers' for the stock of the First State Bank', of Geyser were S. C. Purdy, A. J. Stough. H. 1). Myrick. E. C. Coo . k, Peter Vann, M. Nl. Jensen. N. NC- StIve, Wm. Keinaghan, Owen Fer- gus, Geo. S. Knerr, David Sirflpsou rl James Kernaghan. Most of these men are still interested in the bank i a id as there is none of the stock on the market it would seem as though they were right in mind as well as in ,nerve. As history is usually more authentic than prophecy it is not out of place here to recount some of the benefits derived, and work accom- plished by this growing institution.
