A home of your own has many advantages. Owning your home gives you a real interest in your community. It gives you a feeling of confidence, a freedom from worry about the future. How a,savings account helps A savings account is a great help toward saving for the necessary "first payment." Add to a savings account regularly and you will soon have enough to start levying the home you want. Many people find a savings account a convenience in paying taxes. Suppose the taxes on your home are $60 a year. By depositing $5.00 a month, you can easily save the $60 without inconvenience.

Could you rebuild or repair it? Of course you would be .happy if all .your family escaped the seething flames unscathed, but have you somewhere, down atthe,office or the bank a policy of insurance indemnifying you if through carelessness the gas explodes, or a lighted match is thrown on combustibles, or in some other way, perhaps by a short cricuit in the electric wiring, or an overheated furnace, your home burns? Our time is your time. We know FIRE INSURANCE, and we will be glad to advise you. Real Estate, Abstracts and Insurance G. W. Clark- R. R. Brourink- F. E. Payton The Life Of That Home -depends almost entirely upon your judgment-in PAINT. Your HOME or buildings will last just as long as the outer surface or "skin." Protect the "skin"-both inside and out- with GOOD paint-and you protect ALL. . Corroding elements of nature are guarded away by good paint on the outside. The wear inside--comes from kitchen steam-gas-soot, scouring-walking. Lincoln Paint is GOOD PAINT. Let us estimate that-job.
