CORN IN STATE

Building Your Wealth!
A bank works for you night and day, -week after week, adding
cents to your dollars. Little by little the amounts grow till each
addition is a respectable sum.
Where does the gain come from? Not from your pocket. Nor
from ours. It is the result of production. Money placed in a bank
is given an opportunity to work and to produce.
Thus a bank BUILDS your wealth.
Start with a small deposit if you will. Add to it when you
can regularly if you can do so. It will not be long till you can
fairly see it grow.

Czechoslavakia is essentially an
exporting country. Its production of
sugar, textiles, glass and b'r, to
gether with its less important manu
factures, have been an important
factor in European industry and
commerce for many decades.
Appreciation of this situation has
led to marked activity in the nego
tiation of commercial treaties, and
already Bohemian products are bt ing
marketed under ngreements in Switz
erland, Jugo-Slavia, Germany, Bul
garia, France, Roumania, Italy, Aus
tria, Poland and Spain.
Similar arrangements are in the
making with Great Britain, Den
mark, Belgium, Holland, Greece,
Norway, Hungary, Sweden and Port
ugal, while there have been trade
conversations with Russia.
Czecr oslavakia can take care of
herself. The world will watch with
interest the progress of l-ss fortun
ate Bister republics toward the real
ization of their hopes.

Did you ever think about your threshing coal?
You all know the coal strike makes it impossible to buy
any coal from the mines, but we were fortunate to have
our bins filled before the strike.
We handle the Franklin county nut coal, which can
not be beat for threshing coal. - Our prices are right.
Better look after your needs before it is all gone, as our
supply will not take care of all our customers.
