More Bank Talk
Did it ever occur to you why all Rood buslnoHH men
keep n checking account with a hank? We'll tell
you. It enahltw them to keep their funda in a moru
aecuro plans than thu olllco wife. It kWch them a
better alandlng in the huaineas world. It enahlua
them to pay their hills by check, thu return check
being an undiaputahlu rqcclpt.
Individuals find a checking account- very con
venient and a source of saving. Money In one's
pocket ia often Bpent on the apur of tho moment,
Kvhllo one ia iliapoacd to think twice before drawing
on Ida or her balance in thu hank.
GOT THE SAVING IIAIUT. Lay up for a

where your money ia always absolutely safe.
