of gtrtting a few Thrift Stamps every

vests once a year. Almost every one
of them, however, grows something
else which he markets at odd times.
An occasional load of hay may be
taken Into town and sold. The thrifty
farmers also plant peas, beans, okra,
lettuce, beets or some of the other
vegetables which thrive In the South
and for which there Is a ready market.
Butter and eggs form staple articles
to be marketed between seasons.

there are always opportunities for a
good investment. It ii hard to place
much less than that. That is what
healthy men who are self-made ad

Until we went to war, it was hard
to get started toward that $1,000 un
less at least one dollar could be put
away at a time. Small change was
restless and acrobatic* and kept Jump

Now, however, there is an easy way
to get that first thousand. The
answer is Thrift Stamps. They cost '
only a quarter apiece and can be con

Secretary Glass, in a recent inter

War Stamps as a permanent invest

"WAR Savings Stamps afford an ex

and. earning power. Many persona
have not taken the War Savings
Stamps seriously as au Investment
but the fact that they may be bought
in as large a quantity as $1,000 face
value during 1919, at such favorable
interest return, makes them most de
sirable for the average man or family.
"Definite plans for the continuance
of the issue in coming years of small

sales this year do not approach th*
high marks made under stimulation of
war need last year, their absorption

Savings in all channels shrank dur

it is expected that War Savings Sump
sales, along with postal savings and
savings bank deposits, will grow
steadily throughout the year.
"Co-operation is sought earnestly in
the matter of keeping Thrift and War
Savings Stamps on sale, so that no
one so inclined may fail to have oppor
