The government has decided upon. short term bonds, to be redeemed in from one to five years, for the Victory Loan, instead of bonds maturing in fifteen to twenty years. Secretary of the Treasury Carter Glass feels convinced that these as cratles will command a higher market pries than those soverlag a leager pe .Ino4 Fifth Liberty Loan Campaign, Starts, With Us, Tuesday April 29th. d -- Please allow me to say a word Sthronugh your columnns concerning k the 5th Victory Liberty Loan. I e am glad to report that the pros Spt etcs for this loan in spite of , many j'hophecies to the contrary art' growing brighter every day. Withl less hinderance and greater res ources than during the 4th Loian, a failure to float the Victory Le, n can have only one explana tion viz: The fact that war being over. we have cooled in the ardor of our patriotism, or lost Interest in the tremendous issue at stake. Now let us think for a moment how a failure in this loan will re flect upon our people. let, It will convict us of spasmodic patriotism ) and dim the lustre of our past re cord in these matters. 2nd, We P will be open to suspicion that we are ungrateful to our meni of the army and navy who have wrought so splendidly in the cause of hu man liberty, and indifferent to their return. 3rd, It will show that, while we were not williug-fer our boys to stop of a complete vic tory, we are slackers enough to quit before the job is done. No American citizen who has felt un der obligation .to invest in previ ous loans, can reasonably feel un dier less obligation to invest in the º present issule. You llp patrittism is less than 100 per cent if you fail to invest as far as your ability in 'cash and credit allow. Let it be saitl as a credit to our government thait in financin g the great world war it has at the same time given the pe.ople an ),opportunity of in vest.ment in securities that are con sidered, by all business man as un surpassed. Thus every purchaser of govei nmient bonds has both served himself and his country at the same time. Every worker who has had part in the sale of these bonds can congratulate himself for his part in laying such a splendid foundation for economic prosperi ty. A moments reftlection will show how great an advantage it is front every standpoint that these honds be (distributed as universal. ly as possible. Universal o'wner ship of government bonds by all the people will constitute the strongest possible defence against Bolshevism. The rate of interest. the time of maturity and the terms s of payment, all contribute to make a the Victory Loani Bonds the most I attractive of all issues. Our quo- t ta should be looked upon as a pri vilege and not as a burden. To a h,. asked to sell these bonds should 1 lee' consi l'r,.d a dist in't honor, and C to get them as thouroughly' d(listri. 1 Iuteld amonlig tihe people should y put a feeling scnd ,ely to thai which inspired our nien at ('han- a tentl Thiery.

They ride as smoothly as pneumatics and protect your cars from jolts, jars and vibrations as fully as do pneumatics. Piers if live elastic rubber built about one inch apart inside the casing and vulcanized or welded to it take the place of an inner tube and absord the shocks and jolts. They are economical-you do not have to carry spare tires or tubes. They are not new; tens of thousands of them in the past six years have been sold to satisfied users. They are just the thing for Ford or Maxwell or Chevrolet or any car using a 30 x 3 or 30 x 3" or 31 x 4 whether passen ge r car or truck, as they are made in different carrying capa cities I am the exclusive (dealer for them in this parish. Write me or phone me for further informnation or demonstration or ask some of the people to whom I have sold them. E. R. Long, Younjsville, La.

We are informed that Dr. L. A. Butler, a colored Doctor living in Breaux Bridge was served notice by some white persons to leave the parish and not wishing to have trouble with them, he left Thurs. clay. We have known Dr. Butler for several years and have never heard anything against him, he respected and was looked upon as a good man. Unless the Doctor was guilty of some offense that should have been dealt with by the courts, we believe it was a seri ous mi take to force him to leave this parish, as a man like him, who showed a public spirit and patrio. tism among his people during the war, being a leader among theim, had a large influence in keeping our negroes here in our fields were they are gieatly needed. This action was ill-advised and we fear will have no good result among the colored population who should have the assistance and protection of the white people until they have done wrong.
