Fourth Liberty Loan Patriotic
On Monday night in the Edgefield
Opera House a very enthusiastic ral
ly was held for the Fourth Liberty
Loan, beginning thc drive for a half
million dollars for Edgefield county.
Seated on the platform were Mr.
A. E. Padgett, Rev. A. L. Gunter,
Hon. Finley Henderson, B. E. Nichol
son, J. C. Sheppard, J. L. Mims and
. Sergeant Miller.
Mr A. E. Padgett, county chair-1
man, presided over the meeting and
made a very stirring appeal to the j
audience for thoir support and loyal-1
ty to their country and their baj's in
this critical time.
Mr. Finley Hender3on of Aiken,
District Chairman of the Liberty
Loan made a magnificent address. At
the close of this Mrs. R. G. Shannon- j
house sang "The Marseillaise" as a j
solo. One gentleman in the audience :
paid this high tribute to her voice
and spirit. He said, "When Mrs. Shan-1
nonhouse sings "The Marseillaise," i
and says "To arms! To arms, ye j
Brave," it makes me want to fight." ;
What greater estimate could be made 1
of this voice in these times of hero
ism than that it stirred to action the
energies and enthusiasm of a soldier.
At the close of this song, Sergeant
Miler of Camp Jackson, formerly a
resident of California was introduced
and spoke with great vehemence, en- I
tertaining the audience with experi- !
enees and incidents.
Through the chairman of the Lib
erty Loan, Mr. Padgett, who took the
subscriptions from the platform mere
than $25,000 was subscribed.
Ex-Governor J. C. Sheppard also
occupied the platform and gave an
appeal which he had heard used in
Sumter where he had been invited
to speak recently on a similar occa
sion, that each one give according to
his or her sympathy for the boys at
the front. This no doubt had its effect
in stirring the audience to greater
The Fourth Liberty Loan Bond.
These bonds will be issued in de
nominations of *50.00 *100.00, and
upwards. The interest rate is 4 1-4
per cent, payable semi-annually.
The term of the bond is twenty
years, making; the bond payable in
1938. However, the United States
reserves the right to aedeem these
bonds in 1933, in fifteen years
This makes no difference since
these bonds will advance to a
premium over their par value as
soon as the war is over, and then
the present subscribers will sell
There are two forms of these
bonds. The registered bond, is
made payable to the subscriber and
has no coupons attached to it. The'
interest on this form of bond is
paid from the United States Treas
ury. The other form is the coupon
bond payable to bearer and passes
from one owner to another by sim
ple delivery just as currency does.
The interest on the latter form is ,
paid by coupons attached to the
bond and these are clipped by the
holder as they mature and cashed
at any bank.

devotions by Rev. G. L. Knight, after
which the pastor asked the auxiliary

our churches, impressing the serious
