Save For A Purpose
CAVING MONEY is worth while, for it
makes every day profitable to you.
But first of all have an object for saving—
sot a goal for yourself. You have an am
bition—an education, a home of your own,
capital to start in business or for invest
! Start saving with a definate goal. Your
; savings will grow when you have a plan.
Then, too, as you go along, the compound
interest earned on your money will help
you reach your ambition in a shorter time.
