The Man With A
You can't persuade the busy business man,
progressive fann,er, or thrifty railroad man with
a bank account to go back to the old way of
carrying his money around with him.
He now deposits his money and checks, as he
receives them, in the bank and pays his bills by
giving his check on his bank account.
If you haven't already started a bank account,
you don't know what you are missing. Start
now and get the benefit of the many advantages
offered the "man with a bank account."
