We desire to call the attention of all the business men and the people at large to the advertisement of the Farmerville Bank. This is an institution that has long been needed and will supply a long felt want. The organizers of the bank deserve credit and the thanks of the  people. For a local bank is a great access to the merchant and farmers and all classes of people alike. It makes it possible for the farmer to get cash for his cotton and other produce, and enables the farmer and the merchant to transact business that would otherwise cost the time and expense of a trip to a distant market. The bank is under the management of able and courteous officers, and as it is almost entirely constituted of local capital for the convenience of the people, it is certainly deserving of the most liberal patronage.
