Gardens
! ■
rfFRING is here again, and is calling us
,\ back to our gardens. What shall we
plant this year? Lettuce and carrots
and tomatoes? Os course, and flowers, too.
And last, but not least, let's not forget our
Thrift gardens.
'
We all know the formula for a successful
garden. Plant, cultivate and reap. . And
that means keeping everlastingly at it.
“Plant” a deposit in the fertile soil of
our savings department. And then keep
everlastingly at it. Neglect will wither the
plant. But frequent deposits will insure its
growth and compound interest will give it
i fresh impetus.
