When You Are Sick
Go To A Doctor;
Come To Us
The doctor understands your bodily ailments better than you
do, and it would be foolish for you to attempt to cure yourself just
to save the cost of his services. You need him at the right time,
too, or it may be too late for him to pull you through.
It's the same when you are in debt if you try to get along
without the right medicine for your financial troubles, you'll only
get deeper into the hole, maybe so deep that you can never get
out. The only real medicine for such trouble is money. So when
you are in debt, we want you to come to us we have the medicine
that cures and money to ioan for every purpose. The cost is so
reasonable that there is no excuse for you worrying along in the
old way. You can satisfy your various creditors and then you
will have only us to pay some time in the future. Better do it
now, else your money troubles will produce physical troubles, too,
and then you'll have to see both the doctor and us.
We loan from $10 up on household furniture, pianos, horses,
wagons, live stock etc. The property stays in your own posses
sion. If inconvenient to call, write or phone us and we'll seni
our confidential agent to talk it over with you. Everything ar
ranged quickly and privately.
