A Contrast In Banking.
Several thousand years ago, agriculture was tho chief occupa
tion of tho people. Commercial pursuits were limited. Safety for
funds was nbout all'the people required. There were no banks
with steel tafes and thick-walled
Safety for money was had by turning jt over to tho priests
who kept tho gold and silver in tho temple's. The Greeks and Ro
mans considered that religious sentiments kept their money secure
under the protection of the priests.
Usually tho money was safe
and invaders sacked tho temples
Note'the advance in banking today. The people who deposit
their money get many material benefits aside from tho mere safety
they can issue checks, draw interest on their money, buy drafts,
borrow, come to thcin banker for ndvise on their financial matters.
This bank has modern methods in bookkeeping, means to pro
tect funds from fire and burglary are used, mechanical devices
operate to give customers promptness and accuracy.
Our service is the acme of hundreds ol years ol banking ex
perience: the best methods have been selected. The requirements
of "bur customers are studied, their needs arc met by satisfactory
