IF YOU WANT to buy, sell, trade or
rent anything, engage help or secure
a situation, the Mail and Journal Is
the one paper in Moline that can do
It for you. Mail and Journal wants
are popular, and Mail and Journal
wants bring results. One-half cent
per- word is the price to all alike,
cash in advance: two-cent stamps will
do. Evening and Saturday Mail and
Journal. Moline, 111.
Take your pencil and figure
up how many little bills you
owe. Then think how abso
lutely impossible it is for you
to make each one of them a
payment out of your salary
when pay day comes around.
Let us suggest that you
write, phone or call on us, and
let us tell you about our plan
of loaning you enough money
on your household goods, piano
or other personal property of
value, to pay up all of these
troublesome little bills, and get
them all in one place. Don't
you think it would be easier to
make us a small payment each
week or month, than to try to
pay a half dozen places?
If you feel that you could use
a few dolars, we would be
pleased to have our agent call
at your house today, and tell
you all about it without charge.
Our popular 50 week plan
60e pays a $25 loan, $1.20 pays
a $50 loan.
Come where you are sure of
the best attention.
Our motto is
"Private ami Krliable"
