that life is an uncertain quantity; that the "scales
are lumg in the balance"; and that, every man,
according to Life Insurance figures, becomes "a
poor risk" at a certain age, and for certain , reasons. ;
Is It a Wise or Thrifty Plan
to play fast and loose with Old Fathe'r Timeiwhcn
a little money spent now will, assure safety and
protection for those who are dependent upon-you?
. Now Is The Timo
to buy Life Insurance and tho younger you are
the better You can then gel better protection for
less money. Ask any Insurance man to explain
the policy he considers best for your age, 'needs
and financial circumstances. He will advice fairly
because his reputation depends upon it.
And When You Have Your Policy
don't forget that one of the sixteen Insurance Pay
ing Plans ofiered by the "Thrift Savings Club"
Department of this bank will take care of paying
the annual premium in the most easy and satis-,
factory way possible. You simply divide this
premium amount into fifty small payments, making
a deposit of the proper size regularly each week.
Or you can nftke twelve deposits one each month
