What A Govcrnmcnl Hum! Is
Tim Governiriohl of the Unit

of bonds, which is a method <>f
borrowing mono)
The Governmuhl bonds is ihe
printed promise ol Mid Uovern
moot to pay back the borrowed
sum of money at a certain time,
und lo pay interest on it ,it I
regular intervals until it is re
paid
The Government borrows
money in ibis wn'j only iifter ii
has been given tile right to do
bo by net of (,'ougl esH approved

This mi!. :- a United Slates

If the United Si nes c .11 n.o

probable that it n ill be able to
protect the citizens in th.it

Tin? Liberty Loan Bonds of
1017 are especially attractive
investments Not only have
they this absolute stifety
characteristic of all I'nitou
Stales bonds but they an- tax
free inn only from all existing
taxes but from any war tux
that may subsequently he

heritance tax of the i tiit. d
States and of some Stales may
nITect them, or, rat her , ifFeCi

owner by will or t.y inherit

Another tidt ant ige t he's a
Liberty Loan Bonds possess is
that if the Oovernmenl issues
bonds later on during tins war
at u higher rate of iuti rent the
holders of Liborty Lean Bonds
will be allowed to exchange at
