ERTY BOND Novor in history lias such suffering boon caused by war as lit tho prosont day. .Millions of men have boon killod or wounded nnd millions in one form or another crippled for life. The progress that hud been made towards the elimination of tuberculosis has been check ed and the white plague is ad? ding its hundreds of thousands of victims lo the numbers of the slain. Millions of innocent, helpless old men, women und little children have stillered und multitlldos of them have died in massacres or from famine and disease. To all this phy? sical BUlTering must be added the mental anxiety nnd dis? tress of hundreds ot thousands of peoples whose nations are engaged in this fearful strife. The sum total of human misery, death, destruction and devas? tation is beyond all iinugina lion. To help bring this awful con? dition to an end is the duty und privilege of every man, woman and child in America, t'iviii izuliou turns to this great na? tion us its savior from the spirit tif militarism, which is so huge? ly responsible for this world witlo calamity of war. Kveryoue who subscribes to the Liberty Bonds does his or her part in liberating the world from the horrors of the present strife; in tint lessening of the sulfuritig of myriads of our fel? low men and in the saving of the liven of the soldiers und sailors of the lighting forces. Into this elfort for humanity, as well as for our country, everyone should throw their whole heart and soul. The sooner the war is over the hei? ter for the world. Lot everyone then realize their duty in supporting the Govern? ment by the subscription to the Liberty Bonds, that America may bo tho great power which will end this war and all its horrors. To the Farmers of Virginia Tho people of the United States have been culled upon to make a second loan of $8,000, OOO.ooo to their government. Tho security ottered is the f^ith and honor of the United States of America, backed by the tax? ing power of the most powerful nation of the earth. The no cessity is as urgent us tho call for the men who are to defend on the firing'line our rights, our honor and our liberty. Tho farmers of Virginia as a class are enjoying unexampled pros? perity due to remunerati vo prices tif ull farm products largely as a result of war con? ditions. Thanks to tho wise legislation recently enacted by Congress, the farmers have easier access to ready money and o largo participation in bank credit than over before. They are today in better con? dition than at any time in their lives to accept and bear cheer? fully their due and proper share in financing the nation in ill e hour of its need. For tlieBO reasons I appoal to all farmers in Virginia to come forward and subscribe for such amount of the forthcoming bond issue as the condition of each will permit and thus strengthen then title to a foremost plneo in the ranks of tho grout army which, although left at home, is animated by tho same spirit of courage and sacrifice as thnt which is to bring us ultimate victory on tho field of battle. Let every farmer be as liberal with his mouoy as ho has boon with his boy. See your banker and arrange with him to carry your bond if you have not ready money available. Do not meas? ure love of country by the dif? ference hotwoen four anil six per cent., and do not allow jourself to be classed with those who turn a deaf ear to the call of a government which has done, is doing and will yet do much for you und usks little in return. 11 ION It Y t;. STUART, Governor of Virginia. The Meat Question The present exhorbitant pric? es of meat, together with the reptirted scarcity if hogs and cattle, should cittise the farm ers of this country some concern for the future. True, tho scar? city is not so great in this coun? try us in others, but on the oth? er hand our export demands are inordinately heavy. It is esli mated that since the war begun there has been a decrease in the world's meal producing animals of 116,000,000 head. This has had its logical elVeel. Taken all around, this coun? try has increased its supply of meat producing animal:-; hut, us we have stated, the demand on us has also increased many limes. Exports of meat from Ibis country ore nearly three times us largo now as during tllO period immediately preced? ing the war. Now it is perfectly evident 111itI if we are to continue to the heavy demand upon our re? sources we will be compelled lo conserve the source of supply. In plain words, wo must bend our energies lo breeding more live stock of all kinds. The feeding season is close tit hand, and the furthers and stock growers will soon begin to sort out the stock that is to go to the slaughter. In Ibis soiling, care should be taken that all likely females he saved. With the present high prices, the temptation should he re? sisted. Fdch man should study for the future, and do his best to keep up the available sup? ply. During the past two or three years ninny good breeding animals have been sacrificed that, if kept, would now put their owners on easy street. All authorities agree that there is absolutely no danger of pric? es falling to liny great extent for some years to come, strlhul each grower should plan to get the most increase possible out of ull his animals. Another ruinous practice that should bo slopped, by Inw if necessary, is the practice ol' slaughtering very young ani? mals, particularly calves ami lambs. Tho waste of material is too great lo be countenanced under the present conditions. If all the calves, pigs and iambs in this country are allowed to grow lo maturity it -will go a long way toward remedying the present great shortage. but above all things tlo not destroy tho Bouree of supply? the females. Intelligent atten? tion to this dotail is absolutely necessary if our moat Bitpply is to bu kept up to the great de? mand that will continue to bo made upon it for some Inno to come.

To the Ainoricaa citizen who gives some consideration of features of his investments olhorthan the mere money re? turn froro them, the uoes to which the money raised by the salo of the Liberty Loan Bonds is to .be devoted ? will prove patriotic to those who pur? chase such bonds. A certain dignity attaches to money in? vested in a high and noble cause. The Liberty Loan is made by the United States Government to purchase arms and equipment for American soldiers ami sailors, food and supplies for the American Army and Navy. The money is to be spent in America for those Americans who are lighting America's batlies on land and sea. Tart of the money raised by the sale iif Liberty Loan Bonds is to be loaned to our al? lies; this too is to be expended in America. It is to ho spent for food and supplies for the Armies of our allies lighting on our side on the various war fronts in Europe, li is Ameri? ca's contribution t lwarils doing her part in the Wtti we are engaged in. It is billions for defense in the world wide war Autocracy is waging against Democracy, but not one cent for tribute.

These record-breaking sales increases of 1917 over 1916 and our record-breaking sales increases of 1916 over 1915 definitely and finally prove three facts: 1. The supremacy of United States Tires. 2. The fact that the vast army of automobile owners who used United States Tires in 1916 are using them in 1917 on the sheer merit of their experience. 3.
