We visited a small country town, 'I'ain't a-goi 'tii give it away by tellingwiheere it was, or .what the name of it was. There was one bank there. The manager was rich and old; owned the mills, owned the bank, owned most of the town. There wasn't another officer but the cashier, and they had a boy who used to sweep out and run errands. The bank?was in the main. street, pretty well up one end of it-a nice snug place at ;the corner, with nothing very near it. We took our observations, and found out that there wasn't no troub...
