Who ever heard of a bank falling when the capital was nil paid in and tho directors were faithful nnd prudent in managing all its concerns ? He was for not only securing the bill bnlder, but tho honest stockholder. In many, indeed in moil cases whom banks failed, the stockholders nt largo were as innocent ns Iho bill holder. Tis not nn common for females, guardians of minors nr other trnstes to invest their money in bank stock, that they might be reliev ed from tho care of it.
