Will Be Twenty-Five Years Old.
An Honorable and Inter
A Bit of History. -
The Jackson Banking Company commenced business on
December 12th, 1888. It was the first and only bank be
tween Macon and Atlanta on the Southern railroad for many
years, It was chartered for a period of fifty years by the
Legislature in December 1888, and the charter bears the
signature of’Gen. Joltu B. Gordon, who was then Governor,
Its incorporators were W. 8, Witham, A. H. Smith, F. S
Etheridge, W, M. Mallet, L. T. Roberts and W. G.
Its first president w r as W. S. Withaiu, who served the
bank for five years, and was succeeded by F. S. Etheridge,
who has served as president for the past twenty years.
Captain L. D. Watson served the bank as cashier for ten
years, and was succeeded by F. S. Cater, R. P. Sasnett, A. F.
McMahon and T. B. McMichael, the present cashier.
The following directors have served the hank in the past,
and with the exception of those who have “Passed over the
River,” the most of them living today are now directors:
Joel B. Watkins, Z. T. Buttrill, A. H. Smith, E. L. Smith,
C. 8. Maddor, W P. Nutt, F. 8. Etheridge, L, T. Roberts,
J. R. Wright, W. R. Weaver, W.. G. Solomon, J. R. Car
michal, W. 8. Witham, Dr. A. G. Bryans and J. M. T. Mayo.
The capital stock was at first $25,000, aud in 1891 was
increased to $50,000. In 1908 the bank had accumulated a
surplus of nearly $60,000, and as our charter would not allow
any further increase in surplus, it was decided to organize a
National Bank, and pay the stockholders of Jackson Bank
ing Company oi e hundred (100) per cent, dividend in stock
of the National Bank, and it was m this way that we disposed
of our surplus. Since that time the bank fias accumulated a
surplus of nearly $20,000-00 and charged oft nearly slo,ooo*oo
loss. This loss was the money loaned Butts county.
DIVIDENDS: \\e have paid during the the twenty
five years .‘>oo per cent, in dividends. In the years 1908,
1909 and 1910 our stockholders went hungry, getting nothing
for their investment as by resolution they agreed that they
would neither eat nor drink until they had repaired the dam
age done and regained their surplus which had been lost in a
loan to Butts eouuty. We are not crying over our “losses,”
but are happy in the feeling and hope that some good day, a
quickened conscience will cause an honest people to arise in
their majesty and might, to “right the wrong.”
REAL ESTATE: All the property on the West side of
the Public Square was ouce owned by the bank, except 30
feet. The buildings were erected by the bank and later 3old.
These netted quite a profit.
This brief history shows that the bank has been
ENTERPRISING, AGRESSIVEand yet PROGRESSIVE*
weathering during this time two or three severe panics. But
for a loyal and faithful constituency our success would have
been impossible. We have had faith in the people and the
people have had faith in us. For this we are truly thankful.
We covet the confidence and esteem of every man, woman
and child in the county. We still offer our services to the
public, accepting deposits, payable on demand ; time deposits,
on which we pay interest.
In 1938, 25years from now, our charter will expire, but
we confidently expect a renewal extension of same at that
We cannot but feel that our friends and the public per
haps, would be interested in this recital of a “Bit ot History”
eontiechd with this bank, which cannot be other than inspir
ing, when the vicissitudes of a life of 25 years are past and
considered. The retrospect at least is pleasing to those now
charged with its welfare and future, and we cherish its past
successes as one of our most valuable assets.

’A Good Wife.
”Bhe was a good wife to me. A
good wife, God bless her.” These
words were spoken in tremb iug ac
cents over a coffin lid. The woman
asleep there had borne the heat and
burden of life’s long day. and no one
nad ever heard tier murnier; her
hand was quick to reach our in a
helping grasp to tho> e who fell by
wayside; and her feet were swift <m
errands of mercy: the heart of the
husband had flush and her; he had leit
hei* to long hours of solitude, while
he amused himself in scenes in
which she had no pleasure or part.
Children had len born to them.
She had reared them almost alone
they were gone! Her hand had
minister and to their wants. Then
she iiad comforted him. aud sent
him out strong and whole— heartful
while she stayed at home and—cried.
What can a woman do blit cry—and
trust? Well, she is at rest now.
But,she could not die until tie had
promised to “bear up” and not to
fret, but to remember Imw happy
they had been. They? Yes, it
even so For she was blest in giv*
lug. and lie in receiving. I was an
equal partnership after all. “Ahe
wan a good wife to me.” Ob man!

ful, that, perium is one of God’s nob
lest creatures and is a benefactor to
all mankind. Htuiles and cheerful
words in this world are worth so
much, Like the pebble dropped in
to the lake, they muss the wave Jto
tin on and on and on, rippling merri
ly, and find lodgment in hearts.
They are God's best agencies.
Hope is aii anchor to the soul, both
sure and steadfast, tliat will steady
onr frail bark while saili.ig over the
ocean of life, and that will enable ue
to outride the storms of life—a hope
that reaches from earth to heaven.
The hope is based on faith in the
immaculate Redeemer and keeps
our earthly hopes from running; riot
into forbidden paths. The cable of
this hope cannot he sundered until
death cuts the trordiou knot null lets
the prisoner go free. To live with*
out it is blind infatuation—to die
withp..t if, eternal ruin.
L ive is often blotted but by a bard
answer. VVbat dream <-t happi
ness our home lives would be if
every every angry retort could give
peace to a soft answer. The divorce
problem would not he agitated as it
is today, ir a s.ft answer had pre
vailed. The angry spirits of chil
dren are not curbed in their infancy
but are allowed growth. Without
doubt it is a difficult problem and
therefoie requires great strength of
endeavor to solve the best mode of
managing the individuality of eacli
child. Let ns ail strive to attain
tliat great control over our spirits,
which will enable us to give a soft
answer in return for an angry taunt.
Then when tills goal of perfection is
reached, how peaceful and happy
