Don't Trade Your
Liberty Bonds f
You do not help the Government unlets you keep your bond*.
in the following extracts from Secretary Mc Adoo's statement on this matter;
"I therefore warn Investors in Liberty Loan Bonds against exchange of these evi-
dences of their patriotism for any securities or so-called securities. While some of the
securities, or so-called securities, offered in exchange for Government bonds are of
sound value, THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THEM ARE
"I believe it is for the best interests of the people at large, as well as for their
actual protection, that they disregard all such offers and hold fast to the best invest-
ment in the world, that is, bonds of their own Government.
"It seems evident that a large majority of such offers made to holders of Govern-
ment bonds must be made by the LEAST RESPONSIBLE OF THE SECURITY MER-
CHANTS, AND THAT SUSPICION AS TO THE CHARACTER OF THE BONDS (OR
STOCKS) OFFERED IN EXCHANGE, IS FULLY JUSTIFIED.
"It is my earnest hope that every purchaser of a Liberty Bond will realize that the
only genuine help he gives his Government is by keeping his bond as an investment as
long as it is possible for him to do so."

BUFFALO BILL ON SUFFRAGB.
Buffalo Bill was an ardent advocate
j of woman suffrage and shortly before
| his death said: "We have found In
I Wyoming that there are many good
« results. Who is It that trains the chil-
I dren? The woman. And if a man cyiu
trust his children to women, surely
, women can be trusted with the ballot.
I We have found, and I have seen from
! personal observation, that woman suf-
frage means less corruption, a more
I retinlng influence in politics, better offl-
cials and numerous other benefits."
Let the hand that rocks the
cradle drop a ballot in the box.
Vote yes for woman suffrage on
November 5, 191ft.

he is going to vote for the suffrage
amendment this fall because, "First,
the right to own property should carry
