Special Appeal on Behalf of
Liberty Loan Issue is Sent
Out by Washington Repre
sentative of National Grange.
Ever.v farmer in America is ex
pected to support the Victory Liberty
Loan, says Thomas C. Atkeson, the
Washington representative of the Na
tional Grange Patrons of Husbandry,
who has sent the following letter to
the officers of every farm grange in
the United States:
" 'Victory Liberty' is the slogan for
the new loan. The drive is to begin
April 21. for the sal$ of six billion
dollars in Victory Liberty Bonds.
These two words visualize all that is
best' in American spirit. American
farmers must respond to this appeal.
"What the farmers of America did
in sacrifice and in accomplishment, in
food production and in bond buying
during the war is a part of the record
It is a war record of which any class
may be proud. It must be made good
now by meeting the obligations which
result from the outpouring of Ameri
can strength which conquered the
enemies of Liberty and civilization.
Time to. Get Ready.
"It is time to get into this Victory
Liberty Bond campaign. No appeal cf
the war has gone unanswered to the
full limit when brought to the atten
tion of the farmers. Mon. money,
wheat, other food-no matter what
the obstacles or the difficulties-the
answer has been full and certain. The
answer must be the same in this com
"Millions of soldiers must be brought
home; thousands of sick must be car^d
for: thousands of wounded and muri
lated must he made ready for future
usefulness. We armed a nation and
mobilized its resources into a war ma
chine of such tremendous potential
power that our enemies surrendered
rather than face it. and thereby
months or year? of fighting and thous
ands of lives, were saved. Now we
must pay the obligations created by
. this effort. Who can neglect: to paj
his just part for that which prevented
so great a sacrifice of life and blood.
World Wants Products.
"There lies Just outside the doors ol
the American farmer a hungry world, a
world which needs all cur products.
American farming rests on the ^afe
basis of need and service. The invest
ment of the hard earned dollars ol
American farmers in Victory Liberty
Bond?; ls a safe investment with a
certainty of fair return, and the
money will come back into circulation
making more business, increasing the
market and the demand for farm pro
ducts, and increasing prosperity Buy
ing Victory Liberty Bonds will
make farmers Victory-Liberty-Pros^per
ity-men. Do your part to put the Vic
tory Liberty Loan over the top.
"Make your investment in Victory
Liberty Bonds the measure of VOUT
confidence in ""American institutions
and that democracy for which ycui
sons offered the supreme sacrifice; a
symbol of your determination that the
war shall not have been fought in
vain; an offering of thanksgiving for

W. C. Sharpton, 6 Battle St., says:
"My kidneys gave me quitp a bit of
trouble a few years ago. My back
ached terribly and it seemed as if it
would break. It was all I could do to
bend over and when I straightened,
my head seemed to swim. I had too
frequent desire to' pass the kidney se
cretions and I certainly was in bad
shape. I got Doan's Kidney Pills and
began using them. Doan's brought
relief right away and in a short time
all of the ailments were corrected.
