Capture of the man who has been

To-day, a new style, if unfavor

One reason for the un

Of course to men the

main appeal, as we men

Those reiterated official statements
from Berlin that Germany must keep

That Word "National"
No law is stronger than the force of public opinion behind it, and like
wise no bank is stronger than the c haracter of the men who manage and
direct its affairs.
Now the interesting point in this connection is that the character of
the management of a National bank is determined not by the bank itself
altogether, but under the direct influence of a guiding hand at Washing
ton, D. C. V
The United States places the responsibility and the directors must
meet the same in just one way and that is- the straight way, and there is
no deviation from the course, no compormise, no arbitration, and no res
ervations whatever.
It has been said that no corporation of a private nature doing business
to-day places as much individual responsibility upon its management as
rests upon the directors of a National bank, and this is undoubtedly true.
Supervision at Washington, ; examinations by experts, frequent inqui
sitions and suggestions of a most searching nature, have a constant ten
dency to force strict adherence to safe and ethical banking procedure.
For this and many other reasons, people, who have money to deposit,
instinctively prefer the National banks, and why shouldn't this be so?
They know that the National banks offer what amounts to banking insur
ance as well as ordinary protection through wise management ; they know
that the United States government is constantly watching their little de
posit as it would watch its own, and all this at nq expense, to them whatever!
This bank offers you a large capital, surplus andprofits for your pro
tection, all of the facilities which any serviceable banking institution of
fers, and beside all .this the added protection of United States supervision.
If you do not know what it means to be under the control of the United
States government, ask anyone who has had this experience. There is
just one way .with Uncle Sam, and that is the right way. .

Seeking to Stay in Power.
Fargo N. D., June 30. The Xon-

Kositzky, state auditor. The Non-Partisan
league also has candidates for
these offices in J. I. t'ahill and D. C.
Republicans and Democrats opposed
to the league have agreed with the
Independent Voters' association to
unite in a campaign against the Non
partisan league and have appointed a
joint committee to control a joint cam
paign fund for use in advancing the
candidacies of the Republican and the
Democratic opponents of the league.

Mutual friendship means friendship that is reciprocated or appreciated. The
word "Mutual," which is always applied to the old type savings banks, means recip
rocally acting or for the common good. In plain language, it means the depositors
have the benefit of all the profits, a part of which is reserved, according to law, for
the protection of deposits from possible loss, andihe remainder is distributed among
the accounts of the depositors at an equal rate of interest.
Now. obfcrve how this works out. i
Northfielr,;avings Bank has the maximum reserve or surplus fund required by
law of all state banks for the protection of deposits from possible loss.
Northfif 'd Savings Bank for the NINTH consecutive semi-annual period will pay
its DEPOSITORS at a rate of interest more than four per cent interest July I, 1920.
By the way. this is a' record in Vermont.
