Women Patrons of the Bank
A few years ago, there were practically no women who
were patrons o f the Bank. Now, however, women recognize
the service of the Bank as one of the aids in handling household
and personal money affairs. The progressive woman deposits
allowances for home expenses and pays all accounts by check.
The result is that her money is always safeguarded against loss
by fire or burglary and her money goes farther because of the
systematic way in which it is handled.
