quires the services of a bank, if he manages
his farm in a systematic way. While he has
no need for a set of books in which to keep
a record of every transaction made, yet, dur
ing the course of a year he must pay out
large sums of money for various purposes,
and a record for future reference is highly '
important. .Merchants may fail to give a re
ceipt for cash, a neighbor may not recall the
payment of money owed, but the farmer
who pays his obligations by check has writ
ten evidence of such payments which any
court must recognize. In the same way he
-has a record of monies received by the de
posit entries on his bank book.
To the farmer, who desires such a record
for his business, we efctend an invitation to
open an account with this bank. .
