Below is given ! the value of the shares of stock in I eaeh bank in the. county. These! figures are somewhat misleading, 'as\! some of the strongest banks have a smaller value on account of having a greater number of shares, while in the case of the Massena Banking Company it was just going out of existence and its total worth was stated to be only ten thousand dollars but it had only thirty-tour shares. With. ..four exceptions the banks report their stock as worth more than last year. Those showing a decrease in its value are the First National Bank at Canton. First Na- tional Bank of Gouverneur, First National Bank oi Herman and Na- tional Bank of OKdensburg.
