do You Need Money
For any purpose whatsoever?
Never in the history of banking in Bluffton have
money rates been as cheap as now.
If you need any money to carry on your farming or
business operations, for a short time or long, in large
sums or small come in and see us.
Why go out of town to patronize out of town institu
tions, either private or governmental, when you can
get better accommodations with less trouble and less
red tape and rates just as cheap, and in many cases
cheaper in the long run than you can get elsewhere
right here at your local bank which has plenty of
money to take care of all the needs of the community.
We are sure that we can take care of you to your
entire satisfaction for any kind of a loan.
Why not patronize your own local institutions.
Ask us for terms and rates. If you do you will find
there is no need to look further for any kind of loans
