Making a start

If you are like us and are a wee bit tardy in establishing your new year’s resolutions, perhaps the following advertisement from the Bank of Skidmore will help.  From the February 26, 1914 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1 (click to enlarge):

All they did was save.  Try their remedy for an empty pocket book.  What others have done you can do.  The Bank of Skidmore. Capital and Surplus Seventeen Thousand.  W. R. Linville, President.  W. S. Linville, Cashier.  C. E. Linville, Assistant Cashier.  See us for farm loans and insurance.  The Home Bank.
