The people of this world could .be
divided pretty accurately into two
classes-stickers and quitters, , to ...
put it in our American idiom.
And it is a sad fact that there arc
more quitters than stickers when
it comes to saving; at least 50 per
cent of those who ' obtain small
savings banks, and start an ac
count, close it out within five
years at the most.
Show your powers of persever
ance Tby getting one of the small
banks, similar to the Uustration,
and then keep at the saving. In
crease your bank account as often
as possible with its contents, and
draw out only in case of a real
emergency, one that can be met
in no other way. ,
