l or the Purpose of:—
Kquipping with arms, cluthinp and
food our gallant soldiers who have
heen called to the field;
Maintaining our navy and our val
iaut tars upon the high sea*;
Providing the neeessary means to
pay i he wages of our soldiers and
sailors and, if the bill now pending
in congress passes, the monthly al
lowance tor the support of their
dependent families and supply them
with life insurance;
Constructing a great fleet of iner

communication with our brave
troops in France, and to keep our
commerce afloat upon the high seas
in defiance of the Herman Kaiser
ayd his submarines;
Creating n fleet of aeroplanes, whieh
will give complete supremacy in the
air to 1'nited States and the brave
nations lighting with us against the
Norman military menace; and for
other necessary war purposes
The congress of the 1'nited States
has authorized the secretary of the
treasury to * dl to the American peo-
ple bonds of the J'nited States bearing
'our per cent interest, with valuable
tax exemptions, and convertible under
Certain conditions into other issues
of United States bonds that may be
authorized by congress. The official
• ireul.ir of the treasury department
give* full details.
There is now offered to the Ameri-
can people a new issue of 3,000,000,-
000 « f* bonds to be known an the Sec-
ond Liberty Loan. They will be is-l
sued in such denominations and such
terms that every patriotic citizen will!
have «n opportunity to assist the gov-
ernment by lending his mnne> upon
the security of a 1'nited States Gov
It is essential to the success of the
war and t< the support of our gallant
troops that these loans shall not only
be subscribed, but over subscribed. N'o
one i- asked to donate or give his
monex to the government; but every-
one is asked to lend his money to the
government. The loans will be repaid
in full, with interest at the rate of
four per cent per annum. A govern-
ment bond is the safest investment in
the world; it as good as currency and
vet better, because the government
bond bears interest and currency does
not. No other investment compares
with it for safety, ready convertibility
into cash, and unqestioned availabil-
ity as collateral security for loans in
anv bank in the 1'nited States.
People bv thousands ask the treas-
ury constantly how they can help the
| government in this wr.r Through the
(purchase of Libert) Honds, evervone
can help. No more patriotic duty can
be performed by those who cannot
Mctually fight upon the field of battle
than to furnish the government with
the uecessarv money to enable it to

that the\ require to make them strong

row to relatives and to her old
friends in Hennessey, many of whom

l(l and 4:00 o'clock Saturday, a last

fering discomfort and pain that at
times seemed unbearable, she offered

those she loved tor those loving and
patient hands that administered as far
possible to her every want- whose
tireless ministrations had stayed the
band of death.
