F you aro a business man, if you are a pro­
fessional man, if you are employed at a
daily wage, make up your mind to deposit
weekly a certain sum of money in the bank.
You’ll be surprised how the sum will grow.
Cash in bank gingers up the man who has
it there. Ho has more confidence in him­
self. The business man is ready for a dull season. He
is ready for an opportunity.
So is the professional man. The man who is work­
ing for a daily wage and who hasn’t uny money in bank
frequently is fearful of a loss of his situation. He does
no‘ work"as well or with the confidence in himself as
does the man with something laid aside for a rainy day.

believe that the laws regulating the

of our civilization.
