| The Difference
I Between a dollar saved and a dollar spent is just k
two dollars. Did it ever occur to you that way? £
It’s worth thinking about. §
. Another difference is the feeling you have after
ward. The dollar saved gives you a feeling of |
real pleasure—it may call for a little sacrifice for £
the time being but afterward you feel better for |
having denied yourself and the dollar is still I
yours- |
I That is the nice thing about having money in |
the bank- you have saved it—it is still yours— f
you can have it when you wish. s
We make it a part of our business £
to urge you to have a bank account j
• —have an account at this bank— ||
for it not only helps our business, ra
but yours more so. V
