vice we may have to offer will not .be along this

oouy can spena money but it takes a wise one to
save it. There is nothing like opening an account
at a reliable bank to assist you in saving.
Add to the account regularly and you will be
surprised how easy it will grow. Start now no

the premises had gone to the bouse
thinking he might be ill since he
lived alone. It was apparent that
the deed had been committed at least
three days previous.
Indications were that the unfor-
tunate man had placed the gun in
such position that it might be dis-
charged with his foot and had then
rotlred placing the muzzle of the
gun In or near his mouth and pulling
the trigger with his toe. The entire

It all or oven a small part as to the

feol that Honsovelt was not far wtos
when he said that every traitor In th

to live and ent the food needed lor
our soldiers our allies and our loyal
civilians? What hotter Is an enemy-
who would stab In thd back ns the
traitors and spies do than tho Hun
who charges across No Man's Land?

to tho traitor 1b cruelty to loyal men.

right have wo to permit these dirty
spies and traitors who would shoot
them In tho back to escape?
