So the City Mouse invited the Country Mouse for a yisit, and while eating rich food they were interrupted by midnight revelers and barking dogs. The Country Mouse decided he would rather feed on barley bread in peace and security than feast on fancy food in fear. Though the lot of Count" Mice and Cib' Mice has changed in 2,500 years, the simple life is still more to be desired than riotious living. And now as in the time of Aesop, in country or city, there is no safety., shelter or securi W like having a little nmney all your own where you may easily lay your hands on it. Bank of Wiggins
