V .burdens of thousands; many, I have carried from poverty to wealth. I
have bought farms and built homes; mortgages have been paid by me.

greatest services I have rendered mankind has been the lesson which comes
to the young from possessing me.
I have been an inspiration to the home-maker, an aid to-the ambitious,
v To the sick and unemployed, I have furnished succor until .earning power
Where I am, age is not feared and.infirmatity brings with it no terror

me to you without cost', for I am the savings pass-book, investment ideal

tCopyrisMed, 1311, by Thomas J. Sullivan.
A book with pictures and a book
without pictures differ nearly as much
as a room with windows and a room
without windows, Xor picture are loop
holes of escape to the soul, leading It
to other s:enes and spheres where the
fancy for the moment may revel, re
freshed and delighted. They are win
dows of imprisoned thought.
A picture Is Invariably an exaggera
tion of the object reproduced, and, gen
erally speaking, to "please it must de
ceive. Of Deceptive Value.
The deceptive value of drawings or
paintings over photography Is recog
nized by no one more fully than by the
great catalogue houses, hence their
adoption of the most expensive method
of displaying their goods to the public,
well knowing thnt photographs tell the
truth, so far as n correct pictorial re
production Is concerned, nnd would not
be conducive to f;ood business methods
when the goods oftered are faulty.
How ninny fanners would think of
buying a cow from a picture in a
newspaper or catalogue, with just a
name nnd description under it? Of
course the -description would say that
the cow was a fine black nnd white
cow, weight SCO iounds nnd so many'
hands high, free from blemishes nnd
offered at the reduced price of $.10.97
because of a spot cash deal with a
Ktock farm which failed.
There is ns much sense In a pur
chase of that nature as there is for a
farmer to buy a buggy, "our own
brand," at $2l-70,when he can get the
real article from his home dealer for
$25 and have the privilege of Inspect
ing it before buying. And no freight
While talking to a farmer the follow
ing was gleaned: "Farmers, as a rule,
do not like to send their money to Chi
cago or any other place for their goods.
They would rather buy of their local
merchants If their prices are not out
of reason. Merchants generally buy
their goods where they can get them
tho cheapest, whether In Chicago, New
York or Asia, no matter how much of
the same goods the farmer has to sell.
The price is the first and last consider
ation. They fix the price of what he
sells as well as what he buys. Can
the farmer be blamed for buying
where ho can get the best bargains?
Ho wants to enjoy the same privilege
as tho merchants do. Fair play is all
Cath at Home Too.
Local merchants will quote prices on
goods so low that catalougo and mall
order houses cannot duplicato them.
But you must pay cash. Mall order
houses demand the cash In advance.
Why not pay the local merchant in ad
vance? Besides, when you buy from
a catalogue you send your money
away from your homo town. You buy
from a picture and wait a week or
ten days for the goods to arrive; then
yon open up your "prize box1 to see
what you really have drawn in the
lottery and what you ITffe to show
for your money. If you have drawn
one of their "baiU" you tell your
neighbors and friends about It In fact,
you will tell every one about It- If
you find, as' is usually the case, that
you were "stung" you say nothing
about it; your lips aro sealed as tight
