Have You a Checking Account?
A great many persons who have savings accounts in
our bank have never opened a chocking aoceunt.
Perhaps they do not realize that a checking account
has just as many advantages as a savings account.
Many of our customers have found that they can savo
moro if they have both a savings aud checking account.
For one reason they do not carry with them so' much cash
which tempts them to spend needlessly.
And for another reason they keep track of their expendi
tures better when they pay their bills with checks.
Many good savers check out only what is ncccessary for
current expenses and at the end of each month transfer what is
left in their checking accounts to their savings accounts.
It is a good scheme. We advise you to try it.

money, not to have always on hand a kit of first grade tools.
The steel in our tools is properly tempered not so soft that
it loses its edge, not so brittle that it nicks.

Here is the Whole Secret
of Our Success
And why we are selling so much
property, both houses nnd vacant
lots. We absolutely refuse to han
dle a property if the price is too
high. That is to say, tucking it
on to the buyer. Nothing doiug
along those lines through this of
fice, as we are strictly clean and
satisfy both seller and buyer. We
have ou hand now some of the bust
buys in St. Johns. Come aud let
us prove this to you, Wc have
from shacks to ten room modern.
Every property we offer for sale we
will get the buyer more for it in the
next sixty days. This is pretty
stout, but wc are reliable and will
do as we say. Our word is as good
as a United States bond.
