Here's a Secret
One of the world's greatest phil
osophers once said: "The secret of
success in life is to be ready when
your opportunity comes."
And that's true in financial as well
as other affairs of life. Don't drift
along from day to day and then find
yourself short of funds that might
secure some good investment. Be
gin NOW to get ready. Start a Bank
account. Then when opportunity
knocks, you'll be ready. We never
gave better advice. Use our Bank.
