No Faith in Banks
The Harrison house at Pana was entered by burglars and a guest named Elmer Cosart is $1,000 loser in consequence. Cosart is a farm laborer, and is of the kind that has no faith in banks. For ten years he had added to his wealth until he had $1,000 in greenbacks wrapped up in paper and packed away in his grip. He describes his stolen wealth as $100 bill, the balance in $20s, $10s, and $5s.
