FARMERS TURN SALES INTO SAYING STAMPS Odd Crops ef Great, Aid to Thrifty Tillers of Soli in This District. Farmers who are making a habit of getting a few Thrift Stamps every tlste they market anything 'from their rarms are finding that they are ; able to save regulaly : and that, they do not miss the small amounts in vested. The average farmer in this section of the country depends, large ly on his "mooey" crop, which he har vests once a year. Almost every one of them, however, grows something else1 which he markets at odd times. An' occasional .load of hay may be taken into town and Isold. The thrifty farmers also plant peas, beans, okra, lettuce, beets or some of the other vegetables which thrive in the South ' and for which there is a ready market. Butter and eggs 'form staple articles fo he marketed between seasons. By buying just a "few Thrift - istanrps each time the farm wagon i makes a haul to town, the farmer or his wife is providng a fund which they will be able to turn to good account later on, for' when these Thrift Stamps are exchanged tor War Sav ings Stamp, they increase in value automatically, and may . always be turned into cash on ten. days' written notice to the postmaster, although the kmger they are kept the more they earn. ' - Wealth is seldom the result of luck but of system.' - Save regularly. Buy RT. S. S. Treat your pocketbook with the tame consideration as you would your best friend. Investment in War Savings Stamps makes the fie stronger. - ' The cornerstone of tomorrow's jiue eess is founded upon today's , thrift. Any postman can lay the cornerstone for you with War Savings Stamps.' ' , Ton ne ver miss "the firs t dollar out your pocketbook. Keep It for your JJuy Thrift Stomps.' , Kave you bought your Thrift ' Stamp THRIFTY HOUSEWIFE MAY HAVE LUXURIES War 8avlnas Stamps , Furnish An Easy Way to Obtain Money for Conveniences. (Although a family may not be wealthy enough for the "lady of the house' 'to have all the little conveni ences she wants,' through Thrift and War Savings Stamps the government has provided a way for the housewife to fit up her Kitchen, paint the house furnish her spare room or embellish the parlor. These women who were so wise as to begin saving systematically early in 1918 have nice little sums invested in War Savings Stamps by this time. Eleven War Savings Stamps, some of which cost as little as $4.12 apiece, will buy a first-class kitchen cabinet. In many instances, the' housewife would not have saved anything to speak of, had it not been for the War Savings' Stamps. Women are quick to grasp the bene fits from' habits of thrift. Numerous reports have been received at district headquarters of the War Loan Organ ization of the Fifth Federal Reserve District of women who have started in by putting quarters' in- Thrft Stamps and who have been enabled to buy desired articles to brighten their homes. As soon as a War Savings Stamp is bought, it begins earning more money. War Savinfs Stamps are practically ready money. They are redeemable with accrued interest at the pob office on tea days notice, hut the longer they are held, the more money they make for their holders. EASY START TOYARD SUCCESS FURNISHED When a man gets $1,000 saved up there are always opportunities for a good investment. It is hard to place much less than that That it what healthy men Who are self-made ad vise young men to begin early and save the first thousand. Until we went to war, it was hard to get started toward that $1,000 un less at least orfe 'dollar could be put away at a time.

They cost only a quarter apiece and can be con verted into War Savinfs Stamps.

Secretary Glass, In a recent inter view given at Washington, discussed War Stamps as a permanent invest ment -as follows: "WAR Savings Stamps afford an ex cellent vehicle for increasing capital and earning power. Many person have not taken the War Savings Stamps seriously as an investment but the fact that they may be bought in as large a quantity -as $1,000 face value during 181f, at such favorable n interest return, makes them most de sirable for the average man or family.
