ASK FOR tod GST HORLICK'S THE ORIGINAL MALTED MILK Ctiaaa tubttltutaa COft TOO In Good Faith No sound business man would commit himself by contract to any commercial or financial policy that he or the party of the second part could not carry out. The same commonplace would apply to a mer chant's banking relations. It would be a foolish merchant who should establish his account and entrust his credit to a bank that either could not or would not care for him in his need ; or to a bank that, having the willingness to fulfill its promises, had not the ability to perform them; or, still again, to a bank whose policy and understanding might be entirely out of sympathy with mercantile requirements. It is too late when the need arises, for the busi ness man, dependent upon bank accommodation, as it is sometimes termed, to discover these things; and, so it is, that while conditions continue as they arc to-day the Harriman National Bank urges the community to consider its banking re lations for the future. The Harriman National Bank reserves to itselr the privilege of determining whether or not it will loan a customer money, but he may know in ad vance whetlser the bank will or will not; and the bank makes no promises to-day which to-morrow it is either unwilling or unable to perform. Be yond this it regards its contract with its customers as inviolable and only asks that the customer shrill similarly regard his contract with the bank. MNKMCT KWM ntOM I . M.
