UVERY dollar that you spend foolishly,
every proprotionate amount of money
that you earn that it would be possible to save and do
not, is only money that you have to work for again.
On the other hand every dollar you put in the bank is
money that is going to constantly work for you.
Which is the best; money always working for you, or
you always working for your money. Come in and
start that bank account. Don't put it off another day.

You have often heard wordy of praise for the
busy bee. Ever hear^any one whooping it up for
the yellow-jacket. f
The reason the bee is praised and the wasp is
"swatted" is because the bee saves. A yellow-jacket
can be just as busy as a bee. If you don't believe
that just fool with one some time and see. It's the
saving habit that makes the honey. If you have
formed the saving habit, our bank is the place for
your savings, for they are always secare with ns, bat
fiubject to your check.
