Why Farmers Should Keep
A Bank Account As Well
As Business Men.
Their bank deposit book affords them a complete record
of their cash receiptH, while the stubs of their check books
are a jwrfect record of expenses and payments. 1'aying a
laborer, n store account or any other bill with a bank check
is much safer than with money; because you avoid the risk
of handling the actual cash, and the endorsed check returned
by the bank Is tho best kind of n receipt.
Farmera, try the experiment for one year of keeping a
bank account and see if it does not pay you. A large num
ber of the best farmerH have accounta with us now we
want every farmer to have one with ua.
