man Davis says that $9,000,000 must
be taken as the state's minimum and
that the full $10,000,000 that thq

The government cannot get along
with less than $3,000,000,000 and it
is asking subscriptions up to $5,000,

of the government it is imperative
that Idaho buys bonds up to the full
"Some people have the idea that
to buy a liberty bond is to make a
donation to the government," said
former Governor James H. Hawley.
"If the government were taking our
dollars in the shape of taxes no
loyal citizen would have a right to
complain. We are, however, offered
a government bond that pays 4 per
cent interest. Holdings up to $5,000
are exempt from all taxes. All hold
ings, no matter if one has o million
dollars worth, are exempt from local
taxes and also from the normal in
come tax. Can you find a better and
a safer investment for the man with
money. The man who refuses to
buy a liberty bond, if he has the
money to buy it with, Is not a good
citizen. The question of invest
ment should be a secondary consid
eration. The all important thing is
that pur boys, the sons of mothers
and fathers of Idaho, have gone to
the front. Their welfare demands
that 1 our dollars be handed over to
the government. The red-blooded
loyal American will give unstinted,
financial support, whether it is for
Red Cross work, for Liberty Bonds,
or for one' of the other funds needed
for the welfare of the enlisted men."

Just a few blocks away the ve
hicle and implement dealer was sit

The conversation drifted around
the near approach of school. "And
that reminds me, John," said the
lady who sat at the head of the ta
bie,"I must be going to the city not
later than next week. I must get
school clothes and see about a fall
suit for myself, and while I'm there,
perhaps I had better see about a new
rug for the parlor and some lace

That night the business men of the

town had a meeting
growth of the mail order
make plans for bringing greater
prosperity to the home town. The
dry goods merchant, the vehicle and
implement dealer, the grocer and the
banker all made short talks. They
agreed that the ranchers, and the
town folks who persisted in buying
goods from mail order and outside
houses were guilty of treason to the
home town, that they were the peo
ple who killed prosperity.
But these men stopped short of all
the facts. Did you ever see a town
making a real success of itself where
the business men were not working
together? Did you ever see a suc
cessful town without a successful lo
cal printing shop? Did you ever see
such a print shop successful without
the support of the home banker, the
home merchant, the home grocer,
and all the home dealers? The print
ing of letterheads, envelopes, state
ments, circulars and cards is the life
of business for the local print shop.
But it doesn't matter if
printing or bedroom Suites,
send the business away, give it to
outside cities, you deprive the local
business of the support that makes
the town's prosperity.
The home town must hold the
busmess of the ranchers, it needs the
business of its citizens, and it needs
the business of its business men also.
But none of the ranchers, citizens,
bankers, printers or merchants can
argue business into a town; it must
