Resolutions on Varner- Mclntosh Memorial The Daughters of the American Rev olution typifies young America. With their charter powers granted by the national congress of America they rep resent the blood and lineal descendents of the early colonists. They stand to day as sentinels over the graves of the men and women who broke the chains of British despotism and w rote a con stitution of Independence. Patrick Henry kindled the fires of the Revolu tion, Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and Washington com manded the Continental Army. In deed, these were patriots. But their lives are over and their last battles are fought; their history is worthy to be written on tablets of gold. The patri otic descendents in the organization of the I). A. R. will forever keep thechiv alrous deeds of the men of Bunker Hill and Yorktown memorable in the an nals of history. Like the chosen wo men of old when Cornelia pledged her jewels, Dorcas plied her busy needle, Marion sang her battle hymns, while Mary watched and Martha served—the Daughters of the American Revolution will forever keep patriotic fires burning in honor of America’s first patriots. Therefore, be it resolved, 1. That the William Mclntosh chap ter of the Daughters of the American Revolution extend their thanks to Miss Joe Varner for her magnificent gift of the Mclntosh house and land as set forth in her deed dated April 17, 1916. 2, That said gift shall be known as the Varner-Mclntosh Memorial and that Miss Joe Varner be made an honor ary memberof this chapter, with all the rights and powers granted to her under the constitution and by-laws governing i THE JACKSON NATIONAL BANK \ Capital Surplus and Profits . . . -$105,000.00 Loans to Butts County People . $300,000.00 Total Resources $430,000.00 said chapter. 3.

QUANTITY How a Machine Does Our Bookkeeping A short time ago we installed a re markable machine in our Accounting Department—a machine which adds and subtracts, tells the date, keeps our books and gets out monthly state ments. It does all this work much faster than any bookkeeper could, and has never been known to make a mis take. The installation of this Burroughs Bookkeeping Machine means that our accounts will be handled just as rap idly and accurately as those of the largest and most up-to-date banks in the country. Insures Accuracy The fact that our figure work is done on a Burroughs is a guarantee to our customers of absolute accuracy in the handling of their accounts. The machine method of ledger posting makes it impossible for a mistake to get past unnoticed. This accuracy insurance alone is important enough to you and to us to justify the use of the machine method, but there are Mr. W. H. Davis, of Atlanta, was the guest of Mrs. Virginia Manley Sunday.
