THE HAIKU WATER CASE.
Fow people give enough thought to tho earning
capacity of a dollar. When you look at a dollar, do
not think of how much it will buy, but
HOA AlUCH IX WILL EARN.
When you find yourself thinking of your dollars
in this way, you are starting on tho only straight
and sure road to wealth. Idle dollars are of no moro
nso to the 'world than idlo men. Every dollar you
make over the cost of actual necessities should be
immediately placed under tho safeguard of a strong
bank and kept busily at work earning other dollars
for you. We pay four per cent interest on savings
accounts and figure tho interest every six months.
