"'That iS; r iTMi£ the payment of interest oa. the ; ,Thircl' Liberty Bonds bought by " peoplel'lk this district will mean wh'en reduced to the terms oC the pay-roll, which ja a commonly accepted measure among our people. The purchase of $1,411,750 worth of bonds by 9,250 persons represents an average of $152.62 pfr purchaser. From ;the standpoint ot investment this average is not a large amount. It means, ^owever, that, a large percentage;, oC; the subscribers consist of personi;wht have, never made.invesi- ments 'In 1 , ^government securities,- and perhaps'ln no form at all. Thus 0 have learned their first lessons .ia the * prudeot''conservation of their .-inei and have been given the incentive 40 practice "thrift and economy. The wide distribution of bonds, even if many persona limited ihoir subscriptions to the minimum of $50, has an equally significant * meaning. The holder o: every bond, no matter what its denomination »,may be, now has a substantial interesEJJn the government and a deeper concern:, in the..progress, of^the .war to a victorious" conclpnipn'. This, relation invests citizenship with a new importance;and patrio:isci and loyalty with'.X.riew sincerity, strength and effectiveness that will have concrete expression in a unfty.of "purpose in our nation wblich will-malic-iti invincible against"thV foe-"ol civilization.

Th* wind IB cold» the sky Is wet, tho rain's continuous and moist; and many people sigh and fret who oh the sunny days- rejoiced. · Some voters ar« so pooriy buiit they view a dark day with affright; ( tbey think that all the jeans are spilt If there should be a cloud In sight. But I have made a guady ftre, I hear It roaring up the ftu«; and here I sit and swat my lyre, and raise a happy howdydo. I look out at the liquid rain that hasn't sense enough to Quit, and see it washing down, the pane, and do not throw a lorbid St. ' Th'e rain will make .the fields TTjOre fair, and that should cheer up dismal souls: and it will purify the air,.fand make the microbes hunt their holes. .The rain will save the: oats and ryes--that's what the good old. rain Is for; and thus we sec, if we fiav« eyes, that storms like thiff will win the war. How often, throuffh a lack of rain, has this drouth Mricken country grtw-ned 1 ! So it is sinful to complain bocaus* your picnic is postponed. -The country roads are dripping wet, no motor cars along them purr; Irat it's; a -wicked thing to fret because your Joy ride won't occur.
