Two New Hampshire towns C'larc niont and Wilton have carried ail the honors for the best records in pur chases of United Mates treasury cer titicHtec, according to returns made to the headquarters of the oavinys divi sion, first federal reserve di-triet. This is the second time that Wilton has (rained prominence in connection with W. S. K securitie. Postmaster Wilham I'. Xolin of ( laremont has sold 35 of the 10fl treasury saving certificates wkhin the jjust month, representing a matured alue of ftfiHKV (laremont ha 72! population, so that the matured val ue of the certificate nold in only one month equals nearly 50 cents per capi ta, - - One man who, sold some of hi prop erty in ( laremont had the strong points of savin? certificates ninted out to him by Postmaster Xolin and purchased 10 of the $W0 denomination. This was previous to -the time covered by the record sales, liter the same man became no well satisfied with his investment that he purchased a similar number for his wife. The postmaster also pot in touch with a farmer who had nold 'out and needed a safe in vestment with a fair interest return. The farmer purchased 10 certificates for himself and 10 for his wife and wanted to buy more, but as the lim it for one individual is $1,000 worth, the postmaster could not accommodate him. T. R. Kill Kelley, postmaster at Wikon, has sold 85 treasury savings certificates thus far this year, repre senting $S.00 matured value. "A man well alonjr in years, who had been saving all his life, and who had no near relatives." said Mr. Kill Kelley, "came to the office one day and a-ked me to take care of his money for him. I told him that the best thing for him to do was to invest in Unit ed States treasury savings certificates and that hey would take care of themselves, and this he did. After wards bearing this incident in mind the thought occurred to me that there must be more situated just about as thii man was, and I did find some and was successful in placing quite a few of the certificates in this manner." 11 " : 1 . .. t . : r nnn . i iiiipii nas a i!iia lion , a-t:m, u that the certificates purchased in the town thus far this year figured at nearly $0 per capita, "not to mention the purchase of war savings stamps and thrift tamps, which have been considerable. ' Both Postmaster Kill Kelley and Postmaster Xolin have been commended for their good work by F. C. Avers, lminesa manager of the sav ings division. The Wise Agent. The agent for the Useless Dingus he was selling was a smart man. He rang the doorbell and maid opened the door. "Oood morning," smiled the agent.
