There was completed at Chicago last week that twelve million dollar home of the Continental and Commercial National Bank, said to be in some respects the largest bank in the world, and in point of deposits the second largest bank in the United States. The building is twenty-one stories in height, and altogether there are twenty-six acres of floor space, of which the entire first and second floors and portions of other floors are occupied by three banks, the remainder by some two thousand offices. The three banks represent combined capital,—surplus and undivided profits of forty-one million five hundred thousand dollars and average deposits of over two hundred and thirty-five million dollars. Their employees number some elven hundred persons. They have a total of about one hundred and two thousand commercial, trust, and savings accounts, whose average credits amount to over forty-five million dollars per day. Receipts and disbursements of money daily are estimated at a million and a half, and clearings both "out and in" amount to some thirty million more.
At the opening of the season the Massachusetts Foresty Association offered as a prize one mile of shade-trees to be planted in the city or town that during the summer planted the largest number of shade-trees in proportion to its population, size of trees and workmanship to be considered. Scituate was the town that carried off the prize. Fifty-eight cities and towns entered the contest, but only fifty-four carried it through to its conclusion. The total number of shade-trees planted in the contest was 12,498, spreading out approximately sixty miles.
