The act authorizing tht
Liberty Loan Bonds of 1917
waa paocd Apiil 2i, 1917. It
provides for the issuance of
$5,000,000,000 of 3i per cent
bonds, the interest payable
eemiannually on December 15
of each year. The principal
is repayable on or after the
15th day of June, 1932, at the
option of the Government,
aud if this opt'ou is not ex
ercised the bouds will run
full 30 years and become due
June 15, 1947.
The bonds are exempt both
as to prinsip'd and interest
from all taxation, national,
State, county, or municipal,
except the inheritance tax,
which is reaPy not a tax on
the property, but on the
transfer of property by will
or inheritance.
The bonds are to be sold at
par; that is, $1 for $lno premi
um and no discount. They
are to be sold by the Treas
urer of the United States and
by all Federal Reserve banks.
But all banks, National and
State, po9toffi2e3. and express
companies have been design
nated as agents of the Gov
ernment to receive applica
tions for thes3 bonds. It is
almost as easy to purchase
one of these bonds as it is to
get a post-office money order.
It is not necessary to pay
cash in full for a bond. One
can pay down 2 per cent of
the purchase rice onnpplica
tion that is, $1 for a $5C
bond, $2 f ot a $100 bor d, etc.

The Woirdarfal Powej of Congress.
Mr. Editor: I notice in the
Charlotte Observer of May 23
that Congress is about to pass
what is called the ''Dayliyht Sav
ing Bill " I had not learned
until recently that Congress is a
bout to pass a bill what is called
daylight to be worth.over $40,000,
000 a year But this is to be
done by making 7 o'clock a ra
come to us at 6 a m. So we will
have to set our time pieces up
one hour in order to Keep up
with the daylight savers, whip
ped up by the driver of Old Sol's
chariot. I once heard of a State
legislator being accused of en
deavoring to have a law passed
to change dog days. But maybe
Congress will make the moon
change oftener so we may have
more moonlight nights and a
gain a few more weeks in a year
Then why not change the ther
mometer so that the freezing
point will be about zero instead
of thirty-two degrees, so that
early vegetation will not be kill
ed by the spring frosts? How
ever that might make it too
hot for us in the summer.
Still it would be a great saving.
Then, while they are at it, why
not pass a law t'lat when one
has a pain in his back it shall be
in his backyard instead, so it
will not give much trouble?
Now, it does look to some of us
that this daylight saving law is
nonsense. The middle of the
day ought to be at 12 o'clock
noon and the middle of the
night at 12 o'clock at night
If people want to go to work
earlier in the morning let them
begin at six o'clock in the morn
ing instead of at 7 a m and not
begin at 6 and call it 7 o'clock.
So let the sail and seven stars
continue in their regular course
for they will do that anyhow.

Guineas 'Valuable to the Farm.
If better known by the average
lady in charge of the poultry op
erations of North Carolin Farms,
a small fiock of guineas would be
kept by every farm in the state,
says Dr. R F Kaupp, poultry In
vestigator for the North Carolina
Experiment Station. The gui
nea is an excellent protector
against hawks, crows, and other
enemies of the poultry yard.
Long before these enemies reach
the yard, the shrill penetrating
cry of alarm from rhe flock will
speedily rout them and send them
away in headlong haste. The
least suspicious noise, at night is
also quickly noticed and any ani
mal or other disturber soon
learns that it means discovery to
go into the yard where guineas
are kept.
The only great objection which
may be raised against them is
their wild nature. When prop
erly raised, however most of this
wild instinct may be eliminated.
It is a good idea to buy theeggs,
when beginning with a flock,
rather than to-buy the old birds.
These eggs should be hatched by
a hen, and when hatched, it is a
good idea to give the old lady a
few chicks to carry along.
These wiil mind her and cause
he young, wild guineas to follow
their example. It takes four
weeks for guinea eggs to hatch.
The young bifds are very active
and as they grow up will destroy
many insects about the farm.
They should be fed in about the
same was turkeys.
The guinea hens ars very pro
lifiic and lay during the entire
summer taking good care all the
time to carefully hide their nests.
It is quite an easy matter to find
them by the peculiar noise made
and wnen the nock has been
watched, it only takes a few min
uses to locate the nests. In the
summer they like to roost in trees
near the house. Their flesh has
a flavor similar to game, and is
relished as a great table delicay.
Best Remedy for Whooping Cough.
"Last winter when my little
boy had the whooping cough I
gave him Chamberlains, Cough
Remedy," writes Mrs. J B Rob
erts, East St. Louis, III. It kept
his cough loose and relieved him
of those dreadful coughing spells.
It is the only cough medicine I
keep in the house because I have
the most confidence in it. This
remedy is also good for colds and
croup.

HORRIBLE CONDITION OF BOY INDICTS MM
Lacerated Boy Escapes From a Romish SchooL

The Menace.
Some distance south of Seattle,
Washington, near Orilla and on
a rural free delivery route served
from the post office at Kent, is
the so-called Edwin Briscoe me -morjal

by four Christian Brothers ot
Ireland, whatever that may be
that it contains one hundred or
phans and that it has for super
intendent one ''Brother" F F
Gibbs.
Brother Gibbs and his Brothers
of Ireland seem to be dispensing
charity in a wonderful way at
their secluded asylum with a
long name. We gather the data
for that conclusion from the Ta

It is unbelievable that all v. hr
heard the boy's story did noi
know where he had suffered and
from what he had escaped. But
they would not mention this place
because it and its managers are
so religious and so jious in thier
service of their blessed pope and
his peculiar institutions. But
here is the story as told by the
Tacoma newspaper:

The boy was dressed in a suit

his spare frame and his shoes
were several sizes too large. The
condition of his erarments was
the most filthy ever brought to
attention of county authorities
according to Officer Garwood in

The following iS a clipping of

responding time in 1916, when
$8.00 and $9.70 took the bulk,

present. A year ago $9.70 was
the limit on shipping hogs, $9.30
and $9.60 taking the bulk

high point this week, when 16.

said was given him with a leath

the bruises were touched.
Unable to endure more of the
treatment he ran away from the
school and was given a ride in
an automobile to Tacoma. A
woman gave him his supper last
night and then took him to a
school he said where there were
a number of boys. He was then
taken to Probation Officer Jurisch
when the school about which he

took Arthur to Seattle early this
afternoon as the school from
