uiiding Your Wealth!
- A bank works for you night and day, week after week, adding
eents 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.

Chicago, Aug. 20. Officers of the
railway employes department of the
American federation of labor today
denied all knowledge of instructions
reported sent by B. M. Jewell, head
of the striking shop crafts, telling
general chairmen to hold themselves
in readiness to call off the strike.
Shop crafts officials said it was
impossible that Mr. Jewell could
have sent the telegram reported re
ceived at Ardmore, Okla., last night
by John Seags, wh6 said he was the
union representative at Gainsville.
Shop crafts officials at strike
headquarters here said that in case
a decision was reached to call off
the strike, it would not be according
to union procedure for Mr. Jewell to
send such a telegram and even had
he sent it, it would have been in
code or would have been preceded
by code messages.
