SUPPOSE THAT ROCKEFELLER
Had merely hidden in a safety vault each dollar that
he made, instead of re-investing it what would have been
his fortune as compared with his fortune today? Or suppose
that he had spent each dollar as in came to hand? Rocke
feller's fortune was builded on re-investments. As soon as
he got a dollar he put it to work for him. That is the "secret"
of his immense wealth. Idle dollars benefit no one. Save a
few dollars out of each week or monthly wage and put them
to work for you. We find the jobs for your dollars and turn
the wage they earn over to you. No idle time for your dollars
if deposited with us they work night and day for you. We
pay FOUR PER CENT INTEREST. A savings account is
a safeguard against want a gaurantee of future comfort.
Let us explain our system to you.
