THE CELINA DEMOCRAT
0 piir?n fo) ron nnn m TP-no p-to COUNTY'S Lo few Ml v Jl I V"N TRANSPORT fJ flf Ve Have Ouilt -60S J . 'O PM rC? A It to Here J.-- WJ 0 J.' Ybif gooc people of Mercer County, the Government is appealing to you to raise enough money to build a transport to send our troops to France and supply their needs. The method chosen is through the sale of WAR SAVINGS STAMPS. Your response to this call is thus made profitable to you, because it is an appeal to the thrifty, to save money you might otherwise waste and loan it at a good rate of interest, FREE OF TAX. It works to your interest as well as to that of your Goverment. BUT THE MONEY MUST BE FORTHCOMING. Ships, Guns Food ALL These Things Must Be Provided, and More How well have you responded ? This county has been asked to raise $550,720 to build the Tranport pictured above, and thus support our boys in France, a number of whom are from this county. We have sold to date only $150,000 of this sum in War Saving Stamps. If the Government depended on us alone, the boys from Mercer County would never get to France. Buy all yoa can THIS WEEK. We cannot afford to lag behind in patrio'Asm. START SAVING NOW! No matter how small your start must be, either. The man who can afford only a 25 cent Thrift Stamp, and who buys it, is more of a patriot than the man who can afford $1000 worth and doesn't buy! If all of us who intend to help buy only a dollar's worth this week, in addition to the regular purchases, we shall approach our quota. u&uroMffmuM lunwr vnb UMITED STATU OOYUUOWMT i J Don't let Mercer county lag behind in disgrace. Boost it yourself. Help put the Arrow up. BUT DOQT DELAY DO IT T0AY ! MERCER COUNTY WAR SA VINGS COMMITTEE TO HOLDERS OF LIBERTY BONDS Use your LIBERTY BOND COUPONS for the purchase of War Sav ings Stamps. Your interest will earn interest and keep at work for the Nation. ett&iSZStt Remaklus & Beckman and The J. A. Roemer Co.
