Building for the Future!
A bark works for yen nigit and day, week after week, adding
cents to your dollars. Little by little the amounts grew till each
addition is a respectable sun.
Where does tie gain come from? Not from yonr pocket. Nor
from ours. It is the result of production. Honey 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.
