declared the usual dividends, and our bocks for the past
year are now closed and new ones opened for 1913.

In selecting a Bank, with which you wish to intrust your money,

Did you ever notice with how much respect is held the
young man with bank account? He is In an entirely
different class from the young fellow who carries his
money in hie pocket. The one is known as a conservative
joung business man whose prospects for success are
-quite evident. Th other is considered a spend-thrlft
who has yet the principles of industry to learn. Young
man, half your success is assured the moment you open
a bank account There will be the changing point in your
career. There's where you cease to be the "kid" and
enter the "young business man" class. Here you are no
longer Sam Smith's boy, but the younger Mr. Smith.
Come in and let ua start you on the road to success.
