The Bank Habit
Possibly you who read this have never
kept a bank account. If not, let us
suggust that you make the experiment.

such a habit tends to thrift, economy,
discipline and a general understanding
of business principles, all of which are
essential to success. It also affords a
convenient method for the payment of
bills; and, as the checks are always pre-
served and returned to you, they serve
as receipts for the amounts paid. An
