EVERY FARMER, MERCr
MAN, APPEALED TO B
TO BUY A BOF
Columbia, S. C., (Special.)-"Do I
your bit. Buy a bond for liberty and
the-ultimate peace of the world!" is
tlie 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 ana national banks
for bonds in denominations ranging
from $50 to $1,000. But since the al
lotment for South Carolina ls $8,500,
000, there are a great many more to
be disposed of before the state will
bare done its duty.
Central committees to promote the
Bale of the bonds have been appoint
ed in each county of the state. Men
everywhere ar? 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 this
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
every 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
that a man eau 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
raises. In this way he not only gets
a 3 1-2 per cent return on his bonds,
but he also gets the actual money
back for the products of his farm.
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.
No matter how this situation ls
faced, whether from sentiment or from
hard common sense, the move is a

as to his opinion o? the bonds as a
business proposition refused to dis
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 tiling 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
ziation 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 the
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

The 5th day of June has been set
apart by the Liberty Loan Committee
for South Carolina on which to re
ceive subscriptions all over the state.
On that day, it has been decreed by
the government that all men between
the ages of 21 and 30, inclusive, shall
register; and it is desired that on the
same day. all other people, and all of
those that register as well, shall as
faithfully go to the banks and fill out
an application blank for every cent of
bonds that they can possibly stand.
"South Carolina has never been
backward in the cause of Liberty as
far back as my history goes," said
J. Pope Matthews, of the state com
mittee yesterday; "and I don't be
lieve for a moment that the people of
the commonwealth will allow her to
take a back seat now. We have been
told by the Federal Reserve officials
that we are expected to subscribe to
eight and a half millions of the bonds.
