The people of this community are to be congratulated upon
the fine showing which they are making. The reports from other
sections of the country are almost if not quite as encouraging as
the above. Don’t knock about the hard times, but devote your time
and attention to your business and you will have no occasion to
knock. Besides, if you knock and complain about general condi­
tions or the other fellow you lay yourself open to suspicion that
there is some inherent weakness in you yourself.
If you are discouraged, if you wish business counsel, if you
are in doubt about a proposed financial deal we want you to feel
free to call on this bank and to feel that you are at home here.
All the resources of this bank are at your disposal.
dially invite you to come in and get acquainted.
