MONEY AND ITS MAKING. e
To make money is compara- g
ively easy. ^To save it is more a
iifficult. To make it gro N is a
And not all of us are able to v
olve the problem.
But if ever there was a time jit
when we faced the opportunities
'or making money grow, that c
aime is now. p
Everybody knows that the a
prosperity of the nation depends
>rimarily upon the farmer and a
1s crops. If he plants in large y
tcreages, and nature is good to
uim. his yield is bountiful and
e becomes the harbinger of an
~ra of prosperity. v
When the farmer is plenti- a
ully supplied with funds he n
vants new machinery and more g
nachinery, and the making of c
bese gives employment to mil
ions of people. -t
These people in turn have mon s
y to spend and the merchant a
egins to increase the volume of o
is business and gather in great- n
ir profits. t
And as it is with these, so it is
til down the line and extending 80

avery home. J

The making of moneyv by the
