Opportunity to As ist Your Local Banker
The majority of banks doing business in South Carolina were organized for the pur
pose of handling commercial loans and not investment loans. We do not handle commer.
eial loans, but investment loans exclusively. if the loan you have with your local bank
bas beeistanding until it is in reality an investment proposition, we suggest that you
convert the same into five year mortgage on your real estate, thereby procuring a lower
-ate of interest and relieving your local bank.

Splants, and more so to itself. This

Swith the soil, the plant affected, and

It appears that the toxin Is not ex
creted, but Is formed fromh the debril
of the roots.
