The United States Government bor rowed money from you to finance the War. You hold the Government's promise to pay you back. This promise is called a Liberty Bond or ' Victory Note. On this Bond is stated the conditions under which the -Government borrowed the money from yon. For instance: If you. hold a Bond of the Third Liberty Loan, it states that on April 15th and October 15th of each year until maturity, you will receive interest on the amount you paid for the Bond. Other issues bear other rates of Interest and other maturity dates, all of which are clear ly stated on the Bond. Now, if you keep your Bond until the date when the Government pays you in full for it, you do not need to worry if, in the meantime, the price is low one day or high the next. You and Unole Sam are liviog up to jfour agreement with each other; neither will lose by it. On the other band, if you sell Liberty Bond now, you will find the man you sell it to will not and your that give you a dollar for every dollar you paid for it. The prloe has been brought down because so many people are offering to sell their Bonds. If the market is flooded with tomatoes, you can buy them cheap, but if everyone Is clamoring for tomatoes and there are few to be had, the price goes up. The same is true of Liberty Bonds, Short-sighted people are djimplnir them on the market, and wise ones are buying them. The best advice that can be given . to the owner of a Liberty Bond is thie: II old the bond you bought dur ing the war; it is as safe and sound as thef United State? Government itself, Boy as many more at the present low rate as yen can afford. If you. bold them to maturity, you are bound to make the difference between what they sell at now and their face value, You will also receive good interest on your investment. Hold on to your Liberty Bonds and buy more. . i , Farm Census Begin June lt.

There is only one way to cure catarrhal deafness, and that is by a constitutional remedy. Catarrhal Deafness is caused by an In flamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube." When this tube Is Inflamed you have n rumbling sound or im perfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deafness Is the result. Unless the inflammation can be reduced and this tube restored to Its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever. Many cases of deafness are caused by catarrh, which Is an Inflamed condition of the mucous sur faces. Hall's Catarrh Medicine acts thru the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Catarrhal Deafness that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Medicine. Cir culars free. All Druggists, 75c. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O, Advertisement.
