A History Lesson
Your grandfather tended his corn with a hoo.
Your father thought the old double shovel was
nbout tho best thing ovor invented. YOU rido
along on a two-row cultivator and tend more corn
than any ten men equipped like your father or
your grandfather. This is only one instance
showing that modern methods mean less work
and more money.
Again : Your grandfather traded coon skins for
sugar. He had little real money., Your father,
no doubt, secreted his monoy somewhere about
the house, ran the risk of fire and burglary, and
sometimes loaned it and never got it back. In
thoso days security debts were common and caused
much trouble. And YOU? Have you adopted
modern money methods of banking as you did
with cultivating corn? Do you have a .bank ac
count, pay by check and enjoy the convenience
and profit of modern banking methods? Or aro
you still using tho old hoe financial methods of
your forefathers? Something here to think about.
We can prove our claims if you will grant us the
