Herman Heininger, Phone 201 THE SILO MAN Our Bread Trade Increases And also our trade in other lines of baked goods. It is because our products are pure and appetizing and also, because it is about as cheap and much less trouble than baking at home. Baked Goods Our Specialty Schnebelt's Bakery U. S. Food Admistration License No. B. 11957 Get Ready For United War Work Campaign Plans .for the great United "War Work Campaign are well under way, and it will be the biggest thing of its kind ever pulled oft in the history of the world. It is no small task the country asks of its people, to raise more than $170,- 000,000 to carry on the -work of tftie several organizations which are doing so much in the way of welfare work- for our boys in the camps aind ''over there." The; quota, for the Saline district has been placed ajt $8,000, .and this amount will be raised in muoh the same way the fourth Liberty Loan was put across—by the -volunteer plan. Headquarters will be in the old Savings Bank building, and two days have been set apai-jt as volunteer days; Saturday and Sunday, November 9 and 10. On these days every man, woman and child in the district who can contribute to this big fund, are expected to go to headquarters and make their pledge. The pledges may be for any amount, and six months are to be allowed in which to redeem them, if one wishes time on them- We say pledges may be for any amount, but this is -said advisedly. All are supposed to pledge ais much as can possibly be afforded. To make jt easy for those^who do not know just how much should be pledged, every -one in this district will, be given a quota by a committee competent to do so, and (this quota may be learned on iinquiry ;at headquarters. It is expected there will be clerical force on hand large: enough" to get the work done promptly, so no one neied be detained very long. Think it over, carefully and prayerfully, to the end that the Saline district may go over the top on the days set, and with some to spare. The Cause is right, the quotas will be fair, and when the boys come home they will tell us the money was wisely raised and expended. Get the days and dates fixed in .your mind,—'Saturday and Sunday, No^ vember 9 and 10. The quota for- the district is $8,000 —-which means that we shall all have to give, and give till, it hurts, and then, perhaps, some more.

FIRE PRETENTION RAT IS SATURDAY, NOYEMRER 2 Governor Sleeper Urges Inspection of "Premises—Fire losses Impair American Fiiiane'al Resources. Following we give Governor Sleeper's proclamation for Fire Prevention Day, which is self-explanatory: "One of the greatest problems confronting the. American people today is the great destruction of property by fire and the losses have increased to an .alarming extent. During" the year 1917 the tosses by fire in Michigan exceeded the sum of $10,000,000 and in the United .states the losses were approximately $275,000,000.00 •wMdh is nearly $3 per capita for, each man, woman and child in the cipuntiJy'. "These great financial losses thus impair American financial resources at a time when war conditions caTS for the utmost retrenchment and thrift, and in keeping witfh the spirit of conservation I earnestly request that all efforts of prevention of fire shall be aided and I do therefore proclaim Saturday, the second day of November, Fire Prevention Day, .and urge all. citizens of the state to properly observe the day by (thoroughly inspecting their premises and removing causes which would permit needless conflagration. "That public buildinigs and factories be cleaned of rubbish. "That all heating, wiring land fire extinguishing apparatus he examined and placed in proper condition. "That all chimneys be thoroughly examined, cleaned and properly repaired, and "That appropriate exercises be held in alii, schools throughout the state on Friday, November 1st, and (the teachers assisted hy municipal officers and the fire departments give the children such, instruction and information as they may have a*t theiir command on the subject of fire prevention. "We shoul|d remedy the conditions that entail suoS. enormous losses of life and property, and let us co-operate in helping to make Michigan fire proof.," —■ Oscar M. Alber has purchased the Lewis Feldman farm, through the W. M. Fowler agency. Better Service to You We don't want you to think of the Citzens Bank just as a place to deposit jour money, although of course we are glad to have you keep as large a balance with us as possible. It is our desire to render our patrons every service and accommodation that can reasonably be expected of us. The Burrougs Bookkeeping Machine, which we have just added to our equipment, makes it possible for us to give you better service than ever before in the handling of your account. By the machine method, your account is kept in balance all the time. If, as sometimes happens, you want a statement of your balance in a hurry, we can give it to you, including today's checks and deposits, in less than five minutes. A neatly printed statement made out on the Burroughs goes to each depositor every month. The state- * ment shows all checks and deposits and gives the balance of your account to date, taking the pl'aee of the tedious and unsatisfactory plan of calling in and ^balancing pass books. The machine affords absolute protection against "errors in figure handling. It can't make a mistake. You can always be sure that your machine-figured balance is correct. The increased speed, accuracy and protection of this rnechanical bookkeeping system, added to our tbioT- ough knowledge of good, consistent banking and business methods, makes it possible for us to offer you an improved service that is equal to that furnished by the country's most progressive banks.
