A REAL MAN
It is pretty hard to assert your independence
and defy the world when you have an empty
stomach and an empty pocket book. If your
bluff is called, then what?
The prudent man who has saved a little, who
has a reserve at the bank to tide him over a
month or two. isn't so afraid of sickness, nor
such a coward .about being out ,of a job. A
bank account is a stimulant to real manhood.
The larger the account the firmer the footing.
It breeds.self-confidence, is proof of efficiency
and is an ever-present resource in time of
need. It's not what a man earns in a year
that gives him a surplus at the , bank, it's
what he saves.

Many dollars are burned up every year in poor
stoves and ranges and all there is to show or it
is poor food, unhappy stomachs and tired nerves
Buy the South Bend Malleable

a year, for it burns less fuel than any
other range and bakes to perfection
There is a reason and if you will
come and see us we will tell you all
about it It is the only range made
