' Very few country banks in the Car-
pimas have the plant that this bank
has to take care of customers. We
own and occupy solely , for banking
purposes our own brick and concrete
building, the basement is given over
for our customers. Our safety de
posit vault is in the basement. It is
constructed of solid concrete, has ves
tibule steel doors." The boxes therein
are encased in a steel case and each
box with a substantial lock, with two
keys. -The other part of the base
ment is given over to light storage
for our customers: The income from
the basement is sufficient to pay in
terest on one half of the cost of the
building and our prices ; for Safety
are the lowest we have ever heard of
fortlike equipment. Boxes may be
rented for $2.00 per annum.'

"Yep, Jud has eot 'so scientific he'd

lectures than run a cultivator." Ex.
t At the end of our . second fiscal
year, which will be . July, 1st,, this
bank will; have sufficient v earnings to
pay a nice dividend or pass a substan
tial sum to the : Surplus Fund, to be
determined by our stockholders at
their annual meetings This has been
accomplished by volume : of business
for our rates have been the very mint
lmum the past, two years. Mind you,
this showing has been made in addi
tion to doing a tremendous amount of
war work of all, kinds. Our stock
holders instructed us last Juiy to do
all in our power in war work and it
was done. By consulting the official
reports (which are on - file in, this
bank) it will be noted that this bank
led in number of sales and in volume.
"We, believe in Polk County" is in
deed a , good slogan. Vhy shouldn't
we believe in Polk? In the Salvation
Army drive iust finished Polk was nno
of three counties . in the district that
catne. m under the wire and did the
job on time. Citizens of Polk, now
be as loyal to your own institutions.
Do your banking in Polk, if not with
us then with some, other bank in Polk.
Buy goods in Polk. Every dollar you
spend out of Polk helps build up the
other fellow and the home merchant
loses that which he is entitled to. If
we all live up to this doctrine relig
ligiously you will see a wonderful
change and in a short while Polk
county will be the banner county of
Western North Carolina. Let's GO !
