Experience of the Ages
The best way to get ahead is to deposit a part of your earnings every week With
our burgular-proof safe and efficient board of directors we offer you staunch protection.
A small amount deposited each week soon enables you to have a workiug capital. The
small deposits soon become the large deposits and a great many of our solid business men
started in this way. Come in and try this system and we assure you the same courte-
ous and careful attention that we give every costomer. Keep a bank book instead of
bank notes. A bank account will give you a better business standining your community_
If your name is not on our books we invite you put it there. Why not do so today? Cul-
tivate the saving habit. You will find it profitable. It is not how much you earn but
how much you save that will count when the proverbial rainy day comes. If you have
no bank book, bring in a deposit today and get one,

BIG RAINS AND SNOWS—GROUND
THOROUGHLY SOAKED AND

the next year's wheat crop for the
Panhandle, or trying to anticipate a

and re-soaked by the big snows and
rains of the past week that it will
take quite a while for it to dry out
again. And at this time it would be
hard to find a spot in the Panhandle
that is not freshened and invigor-
ated by the recent heavy precipita-
tion of rain and snow unless it would

Farmers coming into town say it
is impossible to pull a load over the

seen one on the streets for the past
week. Doubtless Buttermilk John-
sop has changed his mind relative to
the "Good roads" proposition by this

1 If we were to prophesy, we would
say that the Panhandle has the
brightest future of any country in
the United States at this time. Plen-

supply another section of country of

Mr- S. O. Granberry returned home
Friday morning from Grayford, and
Mineral Wells, Texas, where he has
been visiting his children for the past
five or six months. He visited the
state fair enroute home. He says
the cotton crop around Grayford is
very short, but the best feed crop i*
the history of the country. We wel-
come Mr. Granberry home again, as
we consider him one of our best and
most enterprising citizens.

A LOST OPPORTUNITY
often hear the expression,"It takes money to make money." It is true. The
failures stand around and wail that if they only had money at a certain time, they could
have made money,lott of it. Sure thing. The thing is then how to get money. You
will not find it rolling up hill or be able to pluck it off the bushes. You had ,ust as well
face it squarely. There is but one way if you are trying to make a start. It is to save.
Start a banK account. As soon as yon can, lay another dollar beside the one in the bank.
Your signature will bring them when the opportunity comes to invest. The failures may
see opportunity but it is lost to to them. It will be open to you if you haye the cash at
the bank. Start now. Be ready. The secret of all business success is the ready dollar.
