It is said that a family should
move every ten years to get rid of the
accumulation of "junk." This causes
a'Meridian man to inquire, "What is

left, and the lower price for necessi
ties allows the careful husbandman
or housewife, to buy food and raim
ant without placing a mortgage on
the family automobile.

Worry Destroys Working Power
Worry and fear arc life destroyer*. You cannot get
fat, rich, or he happy while worry preys on your
mind and takes all th* joy out of life.
Nine times out of ten lack of money, or something
money could help to secure, is the cause of worry.
A little reserve in the FIRST NATIONAL BANK
OF MERIDIAN will remove one, and usually the
chief cause, of worry. And it will be safe from bur
