YLENE ING g Made of Metal STEEL CUTTING ANYWHERE BELL PHONE 52 51 Arch Street, ' Uniontown, Pa. American mothers in all parts of the country are GIVING their sons to make the world safe for democracy. They are giving what is most precious to them, their own flesh and blood, to stand between us and the enemy. Shall we then hesitate to LEND (at liberal interest) our money when they GIVE their sons? Every Liberty Bond we buy helps to end the War and to bring safely home to the mothers of America their brave sons. When you think that others are offering life itself, you must surely realize that the least you can do is to lend money, to lend it at good interest with the absolute certainty of getting every penny back. What an easy way to be patriotic--and yet how important, So don't delay another day. Buy as large an amount of Liberty Bonds as you possibly can NOW. Just think of the mothers of America and what they are giving. You know some of them. Don't you want their sons to be safeguarded in every way and to return home as soon as possible? Money is needed to win the War and every day saved means hundreds--yes, thousands--of lives saved. YOU will do your share now. Of course you wilL AND BUY ALL YOU CAN has besn contributed by Four Big Stores That Save You Money , Connellsvifle's Reliable Homefurmshers Since 1891. The Home of Quality Furniture.
