Each man had n good line of personal property. Tom owed $14,000 on his farm— while John owed $16,000—but had $3,000 in a savings account. About even, weren't they? And then times got tough—and neither man was able to earn enough oh the farm to keep up the payments. Tom had to sell off some cattle— and then some hogs—and then he sold too close on feed. He cut his earning ability—and he lost his farm. John owed a couple of thousand—but he had that savings account. When he couldn't quite raise the cash for the payment, he took a little out of that savings account. Next pay day came around, John had to dip into his savings agaln.v But he had the savings there to do the job—and while it was a close squeeze, he got it done OK. That reserve in a savings account saved John's farm for him. The moral? Remember the bee and the ant? Get some of your earnings into safety reserve Savings Account. The day rould come when It would make the difference. — IIB — Two small boys climbed on a hobby horse. After a couple of minutes one of them said: "If one of us got off, I could ride better." — IIB— We've got a few more - metal • 4-II gate signs. Any member In good standing Is entitled to one. Come In and ask for your*. Junk: Something you keep around 10 years—and then throw away 2 weeks before you need It. -HB- tn looking back over our advertisement scrap book, I note that it was some 11 years ato that we started talking about fertilizer. Quite a chance since then. —HB— A friend bought a home on the contract plan—and made a lot of payments in cash. The old folks, who had sold to him, Were not good bookkeepers. They didn't have a record of all the payments. Our friend figures that he has had to pay several Installments the second time. There are two ways to beat this rap. One is to make all payments with checks. Even If you lose your bank statement, which Is highly unlikely, the Home Bank has a photographic record of that check on Ale. Another way Is to agree that the contract will be left at The Home Bank—and you make your payments here. We make the Interest computations—and endorse all payments each month as you watch. It's right—and it's right on time. Handler? Sure. Safer? Yes, indeed. More satisfactory? You tell them, when you pay with Home Bank checks — or when the seller and buyer ngree on Home Bank contract collection service. — IIB— Going to the beach is like going to the attic. You are sometimes surprised at what you find in trunks. —HB— After the funeral, ns after the Hre. they always ask: "Did he have Insurance?" If you find life is empty, try putting something into it. Each issue of Home Bank Notes Is our cordial invitation to you to make The Home Bank your bank home. lit* Jfom* West Side of Square JEFFERSON Making a fool of oneself isn't so bad if you know who did it.
