In the Posksls of fimsrica!
It has ben estimated that 20,000,000
Americans carry in their pockets $560,
000,000 in bills and loose change.
A Costly, Dangerous Custom
Remember this money in the pocket is
non-inlercct bearing cash, it is not in the
bank in the form cf deposits and cannot
be used as a basis of credit.
The columns of our newspapers are
filled with the records of personal hold
ups, pay roll bandits, house breaking and
pick pockets.
W hy carry money in the pocket? Far
better to carry a check book! If it is lost,
you can get another and it has no value to
the finder. A check is a receipt for money
A safe and wise place to have money
in in the bank. Deposit your pocket
money today.
