THERIGHTDIRECTION U If you are going anywhere, the natural thing to do is to travel in the direction of the place you desire to reach. The speed you make merely reg ulates the time of your arrival if you are headed right. It is not the amount of money you save, but the fact that you have begun to save, that invests the act with a certain moral influence which, properly encouraged, becomes stronger and stronger all the time. That's why we urge you to open an account with us and get started on the right road, where the going is easy. mr 11 1? a ; r 1 murreu auditorium monuay ev- Warrensburg, Mo.; Dr. C.
