Farmers living on tho south side of

To Be Saving is
Not to Be Stingy
That's the wrong idea. To bo snvinji-merely means to
stop useless expenditures . You do not havqlo bo.penurious

for things you can do ns well without und put that money jn
the First National Bank.
You wilt indeed be surprised at what these small sums' will
amount to even in one year's time.

also give you prestige.
