Graham, Griffith, Jones and Sage played remarkable games Graham's line plunges showing more pep than usual, even for the hard playing cap tain. Griffith played a stellar game as tackle, pounding the Nashville line time and nga'n. Jones made some remarkamble gains around the ends. Jones is a good man to have in the backfieki, steady, reliable and a sure gainer. Sage played hard, as usual. He made long gains almost every try. Sage made the hist touchdown ox the game, when, with a minute to play, he inter cepted a forward pass one yard behind his goal line and raced the full length of the field for a touchdown, dodging every man on the Nashville team..

TO THE MAN WHO HOARDS HIS MONEY There is plain justice in the statement which condemns a man who hoards his money as an undersirable citizen. He withholds it from circulation, robs himself of its earning ca pacity and stands before his fellow men branded as a miser. Instead of hiding money away in disuse, it can be invest ed with absolute safety in a Time Deposit with the Bank of Prescott, earning interest at the rate of 4 per cent. Don’t Hoard Money!
