jecting influenza germs into the food
of men in the camp. To make this
more realistic they decided these men
or women should be “shot at sunrise.”
Then they spread their stories in the
hope of making people lose faith in
the government and its efforts. This
story was started in various sections
of the country and has been attribut-
ed to practically every camp in the

that men in camps were without

places mentioned and found that their
informant merely had been seeking
to cause trouble.
It will be recalled that last winter
when pneumonia broke out in the

rumors of a very similar nature were
circulated. These were found to be
false. Then it was charged ground

Unless the necessity for disposing of
them is very great, every owner of a
Liberty Bond should hold fast to it.
Holding onto one's bonds means
that one has not only lent so much
money to his government but also
that he is not spending that money
for goods, labor and transportation
needed by the nation in the prosecu-
tion of the war and is thus leaving the
resources of the country more freely
at the disposal of the government as
well as giving it financial backing.
This is a double service.
Judging the future by the past, our
government bonds issued during this
war are going to rise greatly in value
with peace. In 1888, 4-per cent
United States bonds sold in the open
market as high as $180 and in 1901
brought over $199—that is $199 and
some cents for a $100. bond. That

to well above par in value is some-

good thing for the nation for its
obligations to be widely scattered
amongst its citizens and not congest-

a most hopeful thing for the United
States that the best investment in
’the world, the Liberty Bonds, are
proved false. Then the propagandist
switched his efforts to flying camps
