It is while the pay envelope is coming regularly that
you should think of this and not give expression to la-
menting thoughts when it’s too late.
THE TIME TO BEGIN IS NOW
Contract a debt in this bank. Agree to yourself that
you owe us $1,000 and must pay the “debt” in small in-
stallments—a dollar or two, or live, out of each pay. The
“debt” will soon be paid.
Unlike others of your creditors, we will pay you for
the use of your money, returning it to you in time, with
interest. For you are a partner with us.
This is YOUR hank, and it’s business is to make
money for you. Start to “owe” the bank now.

“A Palace oi Purity”
Many things tend to make our soda
service ideal, but the one distinctive
feature that we wish to impress upon
you in this ad is the scrupulous clean-
liness everywhere visible around our
fountain. This feature is always noted
by the casual visitor as well as our regu-
lar soda patrons.
If cleanliness of service and the purity
of all products appeal to you, then select

The population of the entire
Plano country responded cor-
dially to the invitation and at
tractions offered them to visit the
city last Saturday. The crowd
came early. Before 10 o’clock
the stores and walks were over-
flowing with visitors and the
number who came and went
during the day has been estlmat
ed at 2000.
The particular pnblic attrac-
tion was the giving away by the
Commercial Club of a Hoosier
Kitchen Cabinet and a Puritan
four-burner Oil Stove.
The awards were made by
means of the drawing of tickets,
that had been issued to persons
more than fifteen years of age
living anywhere outside the city
of Plano. A ticket was given
every visitor to the city, one each
day. from June 10 to June 28, in-
clusive, except on June 10 ten
tickets were given and on June
17 fifteen. Recipients were not
required to buy any article nor
to comply with any condition to
get tickets. Their presence in
the city was the only required
The drawing was conducted on
East Mechanic street from a float.
The drawing committee was
composed of J. W. Brown, John
T. Wright, C. M. Stewart and B.

represented the Commercial
Club, a little girl selected from
the crowd, blindfolded, drew the
tickets, and Attorney J. F. Har

welcoming the visitors and ex-
plaining the purposes of the club
in the effort being made to bring

The Star-Courier thinks there
is no question of the good result
of this, the first Bargaian Day
of the Plano Commercial Club
since its reorganization. The
visitors seemed to enjoy the day
and evinced their appreciation
of the events provided for them.
We think that many, who have
not heretofore traded in Plano,
discovered substantial induce-
ments to come here oftener for
their merchandise. All the
stores had a good business. The
day was one of mutual pleausure
for townspeople and country
A social evening was given by
The Young Men’s Bible class and
Fidelis class Tuesday for the en
joyment of the members of the
two classes and a number of
friends in the parlors id' the Pla

As the guests arrived they
were served to refreshing punch.
The parlors were effectively
decorated with vases of cut
(lowers and ferns.

Hon. Charles 11 Morris, of
Winnsboro, visited Plano Tues
day in the interest of his candi-
dacy for the Democratic nomi-
nation for governor of Texas.
In the afternoon he delivered
an address from the platform
of the Houston & Texas Central
freight house, upon which table
and chairs had been placed.
Every seat was taken and scores
of attentive listeners gathered
around the edges of the platform
in vehicles and on improvised
seats of other descriptions.
Mr. Morris arrived in the fore
noon, and was the guest of his
old time friend, Rev. M. L. Ful
ler, pastor of the Plano Baptist
church, at his home on East
Mechanic street, where Prof.
McGuire also an old time friend
and student in the Sunday school
class of Mr. Morris at Winnsboro
some years ago, was a guest.
During the day, before and after
the speaking, he met and renew-
ed ac iuaintances formed on the
occassion of a former visit to this
city, earlier in the camjjaign.
At 3 o’clock the speaking be
