Fredonia Valley Bank.


The new bank at Kelsey was organized Tuesday.  The stock holders met at that place and elected a board of directors composed of the following well-known gentlemen:  D. T. Byrd, W. C. Rice, J. W. Rice, S. H. Cassidy and M. B. Lowery.  D. T. Byrd was chosen as president, J. W. Rice, vice-president; H. Ed. Rice, cashier and J. C. Elder, Jr., assistant cashier.  A contract was let yesterday for the erection of a house, and the new institution will open its doors for business on the first day of January.
