Special Appeal on Behalf of
Liberty Loan Issue is Sent;
Out by Washington Repre
sentative of National Grange.
Every farmer in America ij ex
pected to support the Victory Liberty
Loan, says Thomas C. Atkeson, the
Washington representative of the Na
tional Grange Patrons of Husbandry,
who has sent-the following letter to
the officers of every farm grange in
the United Stat3: '
Victory Liberty' is the slogan for
the new loan. The drive is to begin
April 21, for the sale, of six billion
dollars in Victory Liberty Bonds.
These two words visualize all that is
best in American spirit. American
farmers must respond to this appeal.
77What the farmers of America did
in sacrifice and in accomplishment, in
food production and in bond buying
during the war is a part of the record
It is a war record of which any class
may be proud. It must be made good
now by meeting the obligations which
result from the outpouring of Ameri
can strength which conquered the
enemies of Liberty and civilization.
Time to Get. Ready
"It is time to get into this Victory
Liberty Bond campaign. No appeal of
the war has gone unanswered to the
full limit when brought to the atten
tion of the farmers. Men, money,
wheat, other food no mattpr what
the obstacles or.tho difficulties the
answer has been full and certain1. The
answer must be the same in this com
"Millions of soldiers must be brought
home?, thousands of sick must.be cared
for; thousands of wounded and muti
lated must be made ready for future
usefulness. We armed a nation and
mobiliaed its "resources into t war ma
chine of such tremendous potential
power that our enemies surrendered
rather than face it, and thereby
months or years of fighting and thous
ands of lives were saved. Now we
must pay the obligations created by
this effort. Who can neglect to pay
his just part for that which prevented
so great a sacrifice of life and blood.
World Wants Products.
There lies Just outside the doors of
the American farmer a hungry world, a
world which needs all our products.
American farming rests on the safe
basis of need and service. The invest
ment of the hard-earned dollars of
American farmers in Victory Liberty
Bonds is a safe investment with a
certainty of fair return, and the
money will come back into circulation
making, more business, increasing the
market and. the demand for farm pro
ducts, and increasing prosperity Buy
ing Victory Liberty Bonds will
make farmers Victory-Liberty-Prosper-ity-raen.
Do your part to put the Vio
tory Liberty Loan over the top.
Make your investment in Victory
Liberty Bonds the measure of your
confidence in American institutions
and that democracy for which your
sons offered the supreme sacrifice; a
symbol of your determination that the
war shall not have been fought in
Tain; an offering of thanksgiving for

after peace was declared advanced
During Napoleonic wars prices of
English 3 per cent, consols ranged
from 67. the high and 54 the low,
in 1814 to 96 the high and 84 the
low, in 1824. During the same period
French 5 per cent, rentes rose from
80, the high, in 1814 to 104.8 in 1824.
They also went as low as 45 in 1814.
French 5 per cent, rentes during the
Franco-Prussian war ranged in price
from 75.1 to 87 3 rnd 50.8 to 81.1.
United States bonds during the Con

Yesterday was the last regular
meeting of the Lanier Club for the
present Club year. In looking back
over the .achievements of that body
for the present year, the membership
may well be proud.
At the cessation of warfare every
body felt like laying aside all manner
of work and taking one long, restful
vacation. The ladies of Tryon were
in the same mood, and it was with no
feeling of regret that this paper not
ed the action of the Lanier Club in
deciding to hold monthly meetings in
stead of fortnightly, as was the regu
lar cusaom of that body. Tryon was
rapidly filling with winter visitors,
and everything pointed to a record
breaking number of tourists, which
was later borne out. Not a single
thing was being done toward enter
taining these peoples. .They had
come from long distances; they were
of the best class, and entertainment
which it so richly belongs.
