printed: on newspaper clipping attached to bank: "How well we remember our Baptist Sunday School and receiving a small terra cotta jug with a slot, and all us little ones are lustily singing: Oh come buy a jugg, the nicest of juggs -/A jugg that knows how to keep money -/A jugg without rumm, a jugg without beer -/A jugg that knows how to keep money -."
