Schools Close Tuesday for a
Month
The city schools closed Tuesday
for the holidays and would have re
opened again Jan. 2d but for the
ec ircity of fuel. The city council
and manager thought best to make
the postponement to t eloth anl ex
tend school that much longer in the
spring. It may be found impera
tive to not resume studies until Feb.
1st or 15th on account of the short
age of coal. However the school
term will be finished, even if it has
to run into June.
THIS ISSUE
comes to you a little earlier in the
week and the issue for next week
will reach you several days earlier.
This is done on account of the holi
day season and to avoid working
Christmas day and the day follow
iog in other words to give us a
little rest.
Means Given His Liberty
As about everybody predicted,
Gaston Means was freed of the mur
der of Mrs. Maude King, by a Ca
ban us county jury, Sunday morn
ing New York authorities say they
will bring Means to that State to
stand trial for embezzlement and
forgery, that it does not require
requisition papers to get him on
such a charge. ff

SAVING HABIT

The popularity and succes of its
Christmas Club has been . phenoei

amounts. Even boysad girls are
invi ed to become members, for it is
a well-known fact that the saving
habit needs to be fostered in this
countn Once the youthful mind
realizes how really eay it is to save
ana how pleasant it is to have money
in bank, the saving habit will be
come life long.
A large number of people.whether
their incomes are large or small. find
it difficutt'to "get ahead" financially.
They postpone the time when they
will s ait saving to provide for the
rainy dav because they never seem
to have enough spare money to start J
a bank account. The Christmas U:uD
is a great benefit to the people in
this way, for they don't need any
more capital to get started than the
first small payment, and, after all,
the start is the important thing.
Ahhniidh thp first Club naymnt
is due December 24, members may i
join oeiore mat nine uv paymg '" -
advance. The Club runs titty weens,
so that each member will receive a
cheek in time for Christmas shop
ping. When payments are made
regularly the bank allows interest
on the account, which is always an
encouragement to saving.
A number of plans are offered and
members may select one or more
of them. In the uniform classes one
may pay 25c, 50c, $1.00 or $2 00
weekly, the totals amounting respect
ively to $12.50, $25.00, $50 00 and
$100 00. Another way is what is
known as the progressive class, in
which the payment increases every
week. One of these classes starts at
2c, next week 4c, and so on. The 2c
progressive Club matures at $25 50.
Then there is a 5c. progressive Club
maturing at $63 75 These progres
sive Clubs may be reversed, starting
at the highest amount first and fin
ishing with the lowest. The 5c re
ducing class starts at $2 50 and
works down to 5c .while the 2c starts
at $1.00 and comes down to 2z as
the last payment
Ordinary books are not needed in
carrying Christmas Club accounts
Home Banking Co. is using a pat
ented card system, in which the rec
ord of payment is made by punch
ing cards. This not only gives the
depositor a receipt, but also shows
exactly how much has been paid in
to date, and doe3 away with any
possibility of error.
This attractive method of saving
has proven most popular. adv.
