EVERY FARMER, MERO
MAN, APPEALED TO B
TO BUY A BON
Columbia, S. C., (Special.)-"Do1
your bit. Buy a bond for liberty and
the- ultimate peace of the world!" is
the message which is being sent broad
cast over the state by the Liberty
Loan Committee for South Carolina, of
which Edwin W. Robertson, is chair
Already there has been a wide re
sponse from many directions. Thou
sands of people have made applica
tion through state and national banks
for bonds in denominations ranging
from $50 to $1.000. But since the al
lotment for South Carolina is $8,500,
000, there are a great many more to
be disposed of before the state will
have done its duty.
Central committees to promote the
sale of the bonds have been appoint
ed in each county of the state. Men
everywhere are giving their time and
efforts toward helping the govern
ment float this loan; knowing well
that the fate of the country, and per
haps of the war, is resting upon thia
bond issue. The banks have also put
their shoulders to the wheel. Practi
cally every bank is in a position to
accept applications for bonds, and
?very man who wishes to subscribe
has only to apply to his banker.
The appeal which the Liberty Loan
ls making to the farmers, merchants
and business men is not only patri
otic; though th? committee feels that
every man should want to support his
government to the extent of buying a
bond. It is also a business proposi
tion; and a Liberty bond is right now
one of the best and surest investments i
that a man can make.
The government has got to buy corn :
and cotton in quantities never before :
heard of. These supplies have got to
come from the fields and farms of
South Carolina along with the rest of !
the country. Therefore, the money :
that a farmer puts In the loan, comes .
back to him as actual cash in immense :
purchases of the things which he 1
raises. In this way he not only gets I
a 3 1-2 per cent return on his bonds, I
but he also gets the actual money 1
back for the products of his farm. 1
Just as the banks make their money <
by financing the farmer, just so the '
farmer is now in a position to make <
money by financing the government. 1
No matter how this situation ls j
faced, whether from sentiment or from i
hard common sense, the move is a 1
good one. 1

as to his opinion of the bonds as ?
business proposition refused to did
cuss it from that- basis at all.
"What does it matter whether this
is a money making proposition or not.
Of course it is; but the thing that
any man or woman wants to think
about in connection with the loan is:
For what use is the money to be ap
plied. If a man is filled with a real
isation of what the war means, it will
not take him long to decide.
"Just one little glimpse of the last
three years is sufficient. The viola
tion of Belgium, the sinking of th9
Lusitania, the abuse and slaughter of
millions of women and children in
Belgium, France and Poland, and the
other savageries of the Germans
should make a man go out of his way
to subscribe for as many bonds as he
could possibly stand.
"If it were a matter of war on our
own soil, with our own women and
children the subject of these cruelties,
we would not hesitate a moment. And
from all I hear from Washington, it
will very probably be our women and
children unless the people of America
