During December and January the
United States government is to pay
back to the people of this country
millions of dollars in redemption of
War Savings Stamps bought five
years ago. Several thousand dol
lars of the general sum will come in
to Vass and vicinity.
These millions represept a consid
erable part of the savings of our
people, and as savings should be care
fully guarded. The money paid by
the government should be immediate
ly reinvested where it will start work
ing again to bring in dividends to the
investor. And, for the very reason
that most of the holders of War Sav
ings Stamps will re-invest their
money in some other dividend paying
proposition, their money is in danger.
For, already, dishonest promoters
are at work getting ready to harvest
their crop of suckers from among
those to whom the government is
making payments. All sorts of fake
stocks and bonds, promising big re
turns, will soon flood the market, and
worthless, although pretty paper will
be foisted upon an unsuspecting pub
So, be careful how you re-invest
your money. Don’t expect to find
a safe investment that will pay you
extra large interest returns, for you
can^t get something for nothing m
this old world, you know. Better take
loss interest and keep your capital
than take promises of getting rich
quick and lose your all. If you are
in doubt about the value of making
an investment ask any banker and
take his advice. For we are sure he
will advise you right.
NINETY-ONE-YEARS OLD; PUR
Maxton, Dec. 14.—A host of friends
will be greatly interested in learning
that on the recent birthday of Dr.
H. G. Hill, “The Grand Old Man in
the Presbyterian church,” the Maxton
Presbyterian church presented him
with ninety-ope new dollar bills, as
was the custom. The Doctor preaches
as vigorously and with even more
force than he did twenty years ago.
On his birthday. Dr. Hill bought
his first automobile and, after he has
learned to drive it it is most probable
that he will be the only parson, who
after reaching his ninety-first year,
has learned to drive an automobile.
Dr. Hill is truly the youngest man
of us all.
