THE BEST ADV. MEDIUM VOL. 111. NO. 267. A Very Rich Man lays: "The American people are prodigal, and our extravagance will have to be paid for by some one. People are taking advantage of prosperity, such as has never been excelled in this country, to be wasteful and extravagant. We are not saving up for the rainy day, for the time of need." How is it with you? Are you saving and creating a fund which will work for you when you can no longer work for yourself? Your common sense tells you that it is better to Money Now even at a sacrifice, if necessary, than to want or be dependent upon others in your old age. But saving is only half your duty. You must invest your savings wisely. An Ideal form of investment is a Certificate of Deposit in the Col umbia Valley Bank of Wenatehee. These certificates are issued for deposits of one dollar and upwards. They bear 4 per cent in terest payable semi-annually or annually, are negotiable, good as collateral security and can be renewed at interest periods.
