There Is no risk as la any other kind of Investment, and no taxes to pay. An investor that holds a mortgage on a bouse must bother about insur ance, repairs, and must personally col lect Interest and principal. On a Lib erty Bond It Is only necessary to tear off a little coupon twice a year, which will be cashed by any bank or trust company. 1 .

If money Is put Into a Liberty Bond the principal can be recovered any day In the year. i Therefore, when a farmer, a me chanic, a doctor, a lawyer or any oth er cltlien buys a Liberty Bond he not only Is putting money Into the one safe Investment In the world but he be comes a patriot just as surely as the soldier who shoulders a gun. But he risks nothing, while the man in khaki offers his life a living sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Titled Lady as Shoemaker.
