Do You Want
Your Deposits
Guaranteed?
cashier ol a state bank recently received a
A letter from a man in another state who said he
had read in the paper that deposits in that state bank
were guaranteed, and he wanted to know if this was
true. He said if it was true, that he had a nice lit-
tle account that lie would send for deposit. He in-
timated that what he wanted was surety, and if de-
posits were secured in this state bank, that was the
bank for him. Of course this cashier did not lose
any time in answering the letter, and it was only a
few days until he received a nice deposit from this
man. Now, this man lived a long ways from this
bank, but he felt as if he would sleep better and
digest his food better, and probably have a better
disposition if lie just knew that his money was safe,
hence his deposit came to this bank. This guaran-
teed deposit business is a good thing. It makes
your money safe, and that is what you want. After
you have toiled and saved, you want to know
that your money is safe, and that you can get it
just when you want it You feel that there is
something else a cinch beside death and taxes.
