Persuasion is better than force.
An individual decision to do right
because the judgment has been con
vinced, is better than the coercion of
a hundred officers of the law.
We are thankful for every officer

offended in selling or making alco
But there is a better way.
Come let us reason together. Come

to make it entertaining for you.

Writes Mother Beautiful Letter.
My dear Mrs. Agner:
In a few days your soldier will re
ceive his honorable discharge and will
start for home. [
He is bringing back many fine
qualities o? body and mind which he
has acquired or developed in the mil
itary service. The army has done J
everything ic could to make him [
strong, fine, self-reliant, yet self-con- |
trolled. It returns him to you a bet
You have been an important mern- ]
ber of that great army of encourage
ment and enthusiasm which helped
J to make him and us all better sol-!
diers. You can now be a great help
in keeping alive the good qualities
he is bringing back from the army, in
making him as good a citizen as he ]
has been a good soldier.
His fare and necessary expenses to
his home will be paid by the govern- j
ment. He will receive all pay due
him. He may, if he wishes, wear his
uniform for three months from the
date of his discharge. The govern- '
ment will also allow him to keep up .
for the benefit of his family, his in- ?
ouranee at the very low rate he is ]
now paying. m b
His return to civil life will bring 1
new problems for you both to solve, 1
the qualities he brings back will help
you now as your encouragement help- I
ed him while he way away, and in j
your hands and his, rests the future ]
of our country. . j]
As his commanding officer, I am i
proud of him. He has done his duty 1
well. I, and his comrades, will bid ;
him good-bye with deep regret, and j
wish him every success after he s
turns home-that spot in every man's ?
heart no other place can fill.
Sincerely yours, 1
Webster W. Stetson, 1
Capt. Trans. Corps.
This being the last opportunity that
I shall have to present, through the j
press, to the people of our county j
their grave responsibility and duty .'
relative to subscribing to our quota 1
of the Victory Liberty Loan Bonds I 1
trust that everybody throughout our.1
county will read this and meditate,!'
consider and weigh their relative duty )
in regard to this solemn and impres- j
sive issue. The time for subscribing :
to Victory Bonds expires Saturday
night, May 10th, and I hope that none
of our citizens will, be classed as
slackers in this drive.
Our quota is $235,2500.00, and it
is our duty to raise it. It is your
duty, reader, to help raise it.
You can buy a bond on the follow
ing easy terms: For $5.62 paid by
May 10th, balance payable Novem
ber 1st, you can buy a $50.Ou Victory^
For $11.23 paid by May 10th, bal
ance payable November 1st, you can
buy a $100.00 Victory Bond. Our
banks will take great pleasure in
helping you in this patriotic cause.
Now, the terms are easy, the cause
just, and duty demands it, and I ap
peal to all citizens of our county
let's put our shoulders to the wheel,
each man doing his bit, and we can,
and will lift our county to its histori
cal position and rank among the coun
ties of our state.
This will be your last opportunity;
will it be a lost opportunity?
Thanking you for your strongest
co-operation in behalf of the Victory
