Claremont and Wilton, N. H, Made
Best Record in U. S. Certificate
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
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 agent for the Useless Dingus he
