How some people will suffer the annoyance and worry
which the present need of a little ready money brings to
them. They allow themselves to be bothered by collectors
and their neighbors and friends see they are in debt. Soon
the butcher, the grocer and other dealers see it, too, and
then they have the reputation of being "bad pay." Avoid
this when you are in a tight place by getting a private
loan from us on your furniture, piano, horses, wagons, etc.,
which you keep in your cwn possession. Repay something
each month and you'll scon be on your feet again. Write
