"OET IN I.INK,'' CIO TO "THE FAD" SHOE STORE Lang Building A. L. d'AUTREMONT. Prop. L*M>i$tox>n C fDE DESIRE To call the attention of the public to Hank Drafts as the cheapest, simplest ami safest way in which to transmit money to any point in the world. We need only one illustration of their cheapness. The charge for a post office money order for one hundred dollars ($100) is 30 cents, for a Hank Draft for the same amount it is 15 cents. As to their simplicity, we call atleiit Ion to the fact that the pur chaser of a postoffice money order is obliged to till out blanks, Riving name, address and amount before he obtains it. in purchasing a draft tills is obviated and requires only half the time. Again, if a postoflicc money order is lost, the delay and red tape incidental to obtaining a duplicate is very aggravating. A draft is cash throughout the United States, and a money order only at the office where it is payable. A draft is absolutely safe after it is issued, and in case of loss all that is necessary to do is to notify the Bank issuing it, and a stop payment is at once made and a dupli cate given. We give special attention to our Foreign Exchange Department, and assure our patrons that our facilities for the quick transmission of funds to any portion of the world are the best and at the lowest rates. We receive quotations on China by wire and furnish them on request. it is not necessary to come in person to purchase drafts. Send your money to us in a letter, giving us the name and address of the party you wish to send t he money to, toget her with the let ter, and we will forward the draft in your letter without loss of time.
