"A Bank For
The financial strength of the home often lies in the thrift of the
wife. She becomes the money saver and lays the foundation
of the family's prosperity. And a Checking Account is one
of the "first aids" to home economy because it puts the house'
hold on a business basis, gives you a complete "check" and
enables you to stop the "leaks." Besides, it furnishes a valid
receipt for the bill it pays and prevents paying a bill a second
time. Women's Checking Accounts are welcome here. You
will find it a simple, safe and satisfactory way to handle the
finances of the home.
