Can you for a minute contemplate the possibility of America failing in this war? l£ would mean that your farm and your home would feel the iron hand of the enemy with its death and destruction. Perhaps you may think that this is not possible, that the war is so far away that whatever might happen it would never come to America, . Don't deceive yourself. In these days distance amounts to nothing and if America and her allies fail it is just as certain as day follows night that America will be invaded and her homes laid in ruins, her people murdered and the country visited with the same deadly horrors that have been spread over Belgium and Northern France. There is one thing that you can do to prevent this. Buy LIBERTY BONDS and help the United States Government to raise the necessary money so that her brave men at the Front will have an unlimited supply of guns and ammunition to between you and the enemy. If you prefer the peace and prosperity of your home to and destruction BUY LIBERTY BONDS AND BUY THEM FREELY FROM ANY BANK LIBERTY LOAN ADVHfflSEMENT has been contributed by W. A. Furlong, St. James Hotel. as a patriotic contribution towards winning the war y/:.f;..-;v- . slSiiSScsv.'--
