The easiest way to do this is to save sys tematically—save to.much each week or month. The building and loan as sociation offers the moat attractive proposition for saving a pant of your income In a systematic and practical manner. You will be placing your money m an absolutely sound invest ment which is non-taxable and which will pay you a return of over six per cent. Such an opportunity should appeal t6 every man, woman and child lit our community. “The Second Series of stock will open on Saturday, Soptcmher 2nd.
