Treasury Presents Film oi
Events in Great Conf.ici
Showing- What Victory Lib
erty Loan Bonds Fay For.
Secrets of the war recorded by the
motion picture camera and only now
relea.-ed by the censors are revealed
in "The Price of Pace," an official fd m
issued in behalf of the Victory Liberty
Loan, and being shown all over the
"The Price of Peace" is the only
official picture ever assembled which
purports to cover the war from the
day it was declared down to date.
The purpose of the picture as an
nounced by the Department of the
Treasury through Frank R. Wilson,
director of publicity, is to put before
the public a graphic accounting and to
make clear why there is now a Vic
tory Liberly Loan.
The picture opens with a scene tn
President Wilson's office and a refer
ence to that momentous April 6, when
war was declared. It concludes with
a remarkable view of the Statue of
Liberty, in New York harbor, and the
homecoming of our army.
But there is a vast deal between,
including the embarkation of troops,
their landing in France, final training
over there, then the desperate reali
ties of the front line trnchs, gas at
tacks, army railroading under fire, the
groat attack from Soissons to Chateau
Theirry. infantry and artillery under
heavy bombardment, a battle between
aeroplanes, . and the downing of an
enemy airman, the observation bal
loons under fire, then the battle dead,
the prisoners, captured guns, our
troops marching over the Rhine into
Germany. General Pershing and his
men in Prussia. Christmas with the
Army of Occupation in Germnay. and
Probably the greatest thrill of the
picture is in the scenes where our
troops are seen going "over the top"
and into the wheatfields at 4:35 o'clock
on that famous July 18. 191S. There
is a dim, misty light, that gives these
scenes a peculiar intensity. Other
ecenes of desperate fighting show an
American battery under heavy fire
from enemy guns in the Argonne. ID
yet other scenes American soldiers
are shown bravely advancing undet
shrapnel fire across an open glade
Two are shot down near the camera
The activities of the American nav3
furnish another important chapter o!
the picture. A number of impressive
scenes show the German fleet steam
ing to surrnder.

New McCormick Binders
The grain crop will be good in Edgefield county and a
number of farmers will have to buy a binder or lose
some of their grain. Labor is scarce and it will be im
possible to harvest much grain with a cradle. Better
place your order at once for a binder.
The demand will be great, and doubtless some who
want binders will be unable to get them. The supply
is limited, as our allotment for this territory is only six
machines, and unless orders are soon placed for these
we will lose them. They will be transferred to some
other territory where the demand is greater* We can
sell you the New McCormick Binder, which is a light
Will sell for cash or on easy terms
within reach of all
We carry a full line of parts and repairs for binders. I
Drop us a card if you want a binder and we will call to I
