 MARK TWAIN BANCSHARES ANNOUNCES FOURTH QUARTER DIVIDEND
 ST. LOUIS, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Mark


Twain Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ: MTWN) announced today a fourth quarter dividend of $0.26 ($1.04 annually) to be paid on Nov. 13, 1992 to shareholders of record of its common stock (par value $1.25) on Oct. 16, 1992.
 "Mark Twain continues to pay between 30 and 40 percent of earnings to shareholders in the form of dividends", said John P. Dubinsky, president and chief executive officer of Mark Twain Bancshares, Inc. "As earnings continue at their strong pace, we are able to reward our shareholders with an attractive return while reinvesting a significant amount back into the company for future growth."
 Dubinsky said that earnings for the first three quarters of 1992 will be published in about one week, but that early results show that third quarter earnings have continued at the record pace of the first two quarters of 1992. He also said that he anticipates that the year- end numbers will continue to reflect Mark Twain's six-year trend of 15 percent compounded growth of earnings per share.
 The fourth quarter dividend is the 92nd consecutive quarterly common stock dividend in the history of the company, which has increased its dividend 25 times in the 22 years since the company's public formation in 1969. The most recent increase was in April 1992, when the company increased the dividend rate by 8.3 percent. There have been three common stock splits in the company's history: a three-for-two split in 1987, and two two-for-one splits in 1979 and 1983.
