Our job today is to get ready for tomorrow. Money is the trade token of labor. Labor is power—and power is good—when it is used with a thought of tomor row. The man standing behind the door is the YOU of tomorrow. Who is he and what he is depends upon you and you alone. Initiative is the individual need of today—it’s the word with four “IFs” in it. Put that word in tomorrow s tool box—and use it. It will get you somewhere. Indifference—Doubt—Lack of Self Confidence—Want of Purpose—they all lead to defeat and make labor drudgery and unprofitable. A bank book is an important text book. Acquire one, filling its entry regularly even though in a small way, and soon you will be able to grasp opportunities which will insure your tomorrow. START TODAY THE PEOPLES BANK Murfreesboro, N. C.
