No Bank for Him
"I don't put my money in any
oank," says Slothful Sam. "My
inside pocket is good enough for
me and 1 am going to keep it
thero instead of lotting the other
fellow carry it."
But dees ho keep it there? He
does not. The butcher, grocer,
clothier and.druggist get Sam's
money nnd thoy put it in the
bank. Sam don't know where his
money goes. But somebody puts
it in the bank. Who is putting
your money in the bank? If it is
good for tho other fellow to have
money in tho bank it's good for
you and tho other follow gets
rich at it.
