There is only one thing greater than happiness in the world, and that is holiness; and it is not in our keeping; but what God has put in our power is the happiness of those about us, and that is largely to be secured by our being kind to them. "The Greatest Thing in the World," By Henry Drummond. We hear much of love to God; Christ spoke much of love to men. We make a great deal of peace with heaven; Christ spoke much of peace on earth. —Henry Drummond.

That is a common fault of mon ey. If you have your money in the bank, whether it be much or little, it will not burn any holes and it will be there when you need it. Money carried on the person is a temptation to spending. Money in the bank does not offer this temp tation. You may hesitate before writing a check where you would not hesitate to spend it if you had the mon- » ey with you. We offer you the advantage of our banking facili ties and invite you to open a checking account with us. THE BANK OF OLD FORT OLD FORT, N. C. J. S. BRADLEY, Pres. F. M. BRADLEY, Cashier i P. H.
