"They're not the best-looking
boarders a man ever had," Hack
Turner said one day, "and they've
got awful tempers. Bnt I've found
it pays to have 'em around."
Hack was talking about a fam
ily of barn owls, nesting in his silo
this year. Some folks believe those
little white-faced screechers kill
chickens and ought to be shot on
sight. But Hack disagrees.
" Up at State University they've
studied barn owls for years and
never known one to eat a chicken.
On the other hand, a daddy owl
will clean up around 300 mice a
month. Farmers that kill barn
owls are throwing away the best
mousetraps known to man ! "

THE THRIFTY SQUIRREL PREPARES FOR WINTER
Most folks are wise who do the same thing. If the roof
leaks, they fix it; they also lay in their winter fuel. The
rancher harvests his crops and makes all necessary pre
parations to take care of his family and stock through
the long winter months. All wise people do these
NOW WHAT DO YOU DO?
The Pioneer Service Company is offering a suggestion.
Don't overlook your credit rating with your local mer
chant, doctor and hospital. When you are making your
other preparations for winter, be sure that you don't
overlook your credit, as it is your greatest asset when
winter comes. Don't let yourslf be oversold on install
ment buying. Try to pay all your bills between the 1st
and the 10th of the month, and keep your credit good.
When you rceive one of our Pioneer Service County
Credit Board Statements, bearing our Registered Trade
mark, try to pay part, or satisfactorily arrange to pay
at once, on your past due accounts, so that you can get
credit that you may be forced to ask for.
When you lose your cred- The wise ones prepare for
it you lose something you winter, so why not do as
may never regain. other thrifty folks do?
No commissions charged for collections. All money is
paid direct to creditors.
