    A Safe ,
Simple System
The system of paying
by check was devised
by all men- for any
man for you. It is
suited to the need of
any business , either
large or small. It makes
no difference whether
we pay out $10 or $10000

account will serve your
Pay by check , the
method puts system in

gives you a record of

Plenty of time to plant trees.
Our trees are kept in our large ,

held back so they will be good to
put out for several weeks yet. We
keep no trees in our building in
winter , and only recommend the
hardiest and tried varieties that do
business in Northwest Nebr.
