Now, through many humors, the boy has come to manhood,  and in the fullness of' his strength,  while the mother is even yet rejoicing at relief from worry, comes our  great country and asks his aid, and  it is gladly given���������yet with a pang.  Thus a mother who has been often  disturbed by a trivial ailment in the  boy now sees, him taken from her  life and deliberately set to face an  enemy's guns, and she finds it hard  to reconcile it Avitli any human duty  yet she does; and in this is the  great sacrifice, the great misery, the  great patriotism���������"-that of the mothers of the country.  ded largely, on contempt and a sense  of his own superiority, but the moment he is disturbed or, forced to  contention he must become' despotic.

B.C. -; -  ������/te '  Q. What is the Victory Loan of  19J8?  A. Just like tlie Victory, Loan of  1917���������a loan of money by the people  of Canada to their country...  Q. . Why does Canada again need  money? ,  A. To help finance 'an win' the  war. This money buys' food, clothing, and .ammunition for our'soldiers���������it goes"to bur farmers, our  merchants and. industries���������without  it our commerce' would be" paralyzed.  Q.    Please   explain   more   fully.  A. Well, Great Britain buys out-  wheat and other grains and foodstuffs, our lumber, our ammunition,  and a thousand'other things. And  just iiow Great Britain finds it inconvenient to pay us in cash. So  Cnnada given her these war" needs  on oro.dil., (.hat is, agrees to tcinpor-  arily advance tlie cost of theso large  purchases in Canada. And' to raise  the money Cnnada issues and offers  lo you Victory Honds. Tho farmers  (he merchants, l,ho manufacturer!-,  the workers arc. thereby paid in cash  and the wheels of commerce keep rc-  volvintr. These wheels would quiek-  ly stop if our Canadian people failed  to  buy  Victory   Bonds.  Q. ' in other words you mean that,  we would have depression throughout  the country?  A.    Absolutely.     If the loan failed  ' factories   would   close,   wages   cease  and the fanners would be unable to  sell the bulk of their produce.  Q. Do .Great Britain, France and  the United States raise money "the  same way Canada does?  A. Yes. The peoples of all three  Countries have bought billions and  billions worth of bonds to finance  their obligations* and defeat the  Huns.  Q. Is this demanding much. of  our people?  A. No, indeed. Quite the contrary! Canada generously offers you  the safest investment in Hie world  and pays you 5 1-2 per cent, to  shorten the war, to hasten... victory  and meanwhile make every Canadian more prosperous.  _Q. Do the Canadian people know  this and buy Victory' Bonds?  A. Yes. Over ��������� ,800,000 people  bought the First Victory Bonds, offered in November, 1917. The .success'  of the loan was so great that the  facilities i'or printing so many bonds  were inadequate. That is why there  there was a delay in delivering the  'bonds to the buyers. It is hoped  this year to have the bonds ready  for " delivery almost immediately  after the subscription period is over..  What is a Victory Bond  Q. .When I lend my money to  Canada what do I get in return?  A. A nicely engraved document  in distinctive paper. It is called a  Bond. : It is Canada's promise to  pay you your money back at a-certain date and to pay' you interest,  and it" you desire it, both principal  and interest will be paid in gold.   .  Q. AVhen will the money be paid  back?" -    -...,.;. : .���������  A. If. yp.u. buy .a 5-year bond it  will be paid on'November 1st,'1923--  if you buy a "i5-year bond it will be  paid November 1st,  1933.  Q. But'suposing I bought a bond  and then found that I needed'money  before'those dates?  A. You could either sell the  bond or borrow money on it.  Q.    How coulC I sell?  A. .Any bank, trust oempany, reliable bond dealer or broker will be  glad to sell your bond for you at'  any time. ' Be careful, however,  through whom  you sell.  Q.    Why the  need  for care?  A. Weil, after the first Victory  Loan, some unscrupulous persons  posing as brokers or financial agents  persuaded people to sell bonds for  less than they are worth. If you  are not acquainted with a reliable  broker or.bond dealer ask the advice  ol your banker.  Q. Can the bonds be really sold;  at any time? ,.  A. Yes, over."$50,000,000 worth  of tho first Victory Loan have been  sold on the market and at times the  demand for the bonds has been greater than  the supply..  Q.    Supposing ,1.did, not want, to  part with my 'bonds, but simply  wanted to make a loan on it?  A. Very easily done, 'for there is  no better security anywhere than a  Victory Bond. Ask your bank if  you desire to borrow money on it.  Q.    When do I get my interest?  A. On May 1st and November  1st of each year���������during the life of  the bond.  Q.    How do I collect it?  A. If you buy a "bearer' 'bond  there are coupons atached to it. For  instance, one coupon on a $100.00  bond will read:  "On the first day cf  KirMMJ^Mwiuu^Mva:  ���������rjr<cnc*.i-3U*wi  coupons  so  that  $100.00  May, 1919; the Dominion of Canada  will, pay bearer $2.75 at any chartered bank in "Canada."  ���������Q. Then, 1 cut that particular  coupon off and cash it at any bank?  A. ���������' Exactly.  Q.     And there are    two  for each year of $2.75 each  I  get $5.50 a year on each  bond?  Q. Suposing.I buy a "Registered"  Bond,   what   happens?  A. The "registered'.'... bond has  your name on it, but has no coupons  attached, 'instead,' each six months  as the interest falls due, the Treasury Department at.Ottawa will mail  you a cheque hi"payment of flic interest. And don't forget -to notify  the Treasury Department when you  make, a "change in your'addrcss.  Q. ' Tf I should sell my bond, how  shall I transfer it to the new owner;  A. If it is a coupon bond, hand'  it lo the dealer, bank'or broker who  sells  it   for. you.  Q. Is a registered bond, delivered  the same way?  A. No. 'Yen 'must fill in' the  form'of transfer on Die back of the  bond. Your dealer, bank or broker  will show you how to do it.  Q. 'Does, a inarriod woman subscribe for, a bond in her own name  or"her   husband's?  a differ--  to  say,  ���������)  cation form. .  Q. ' ,Ca'n f buy a bond on  out instalment plan, that i  in periods extending over a -year  A. 'Many banks and a great many  rmployo-s' will hflp you to do this.  Con hull ill em about ii.  _Q. If .1 desire lo pay in full' for  ti'ici bonds ai the tinif I make m'y  subscription, may 1 do.su'.'  A. Yes. ..Subscriptions mr.y ho  paid in full at ihe time of nppiiea-  l-i-n or on the first, day of any month  up  to  April   Lsr.,   1919.  Wiil Victory Bonds Co I'p .\f(er  the War?  Q. ��������� If 1 pay $ J .000 i'or a Victory  13oud is there any .chance of my lining able to  sell -it at a profit?  A. -A very good' cluince. Most,  financiers believe that Victory 'Bonds  will advance after the war.  Q.     Why do you think so?  A. Because the demand for money will not bo so great und urgent  as it is now, and interest rates wiil  likely  be  lower.  Q. You moan that' a I'rec-I'rom-  liK'.ome-Tax 5 1-2 per cent Bond  will   be   more   popular  Hum   over?  A. Exactly, and mo.sl likely so  popular that, people will lie willing to  pay more than   $1,000  for a   $1,000  i own something  Those-  bettor* ..t  people  now  nui  gold.  li-  lory  A.  hide  ii ' in  it   earns  Honds   w  Ho you mean lo way that Vic-  Uonds are better  than  gold?

Look tit it this'way. If  the interest on a Victory Head was  compounded, your, original $10',i  bond, with intercut, would amount  to  gold  the original $100. And remeniiu  $1,000 in Victory Bonds would i  .Li  year;-:'amount fo $2,000.  ' Q.     How do bonds and dollar  compare?  A. The same country���������Canada ���������  that puts its promise on the dollar  bill puts the same promise on the  Victory' Bond.  Q. Heaving' patriotic reasons a-  side, why should a man buy Victory  Heads yielding 5 1-2 per cent, when  he can "get  7 per cent, on something;  else?  A-. The something else is not. as  safe.ancl,furthermore, Victory Bonds  are free from income fax  bill!

Can I invest any amount ia  Victory   Bonds?  A.    The  bonds  will  be  issued   in  denominations   of   $50,   $100,   $-"00  and  $1,000.    You can. buy as  largo  an amount as your funds will permit  When Payments are Duo  Q. Do I have to pay cash for my  bonds?  A.' N o. If a $1,000 bond you pay  $100 on application, $100 on December, 1st, 1918, then $200 on the first  of each month up to and including  April 1st, 1,919. Then the bond -Is  yours,   fully-paid.

Why   Victory  .Hosulu  are a   !i!o.e.si*;vV  Q. Are Canadians beginning ';o  appreciate Victory Bo.ndH?  A. They are decidedly. Many  who never saved a dollar before now  own Victory Bonds and have created their first: "nest egg." They have  learned the pleasure of saving, and,  by buying- bonds, not only have, they  helped to finish the Avar, but they  have helped themselves and their  families. The interest has proved.a  welcome addition to the .annual income. ,  Q. You .mean, that Victory Bonds  have increased thrift?  A. Yes. Thousands  bought bonds last year  'them   in  bills  because  !3-.;r  Cai  iled  the  whole  of   the   Dominion   of  lacla are  fortunate to get such a  h:'f:,ii rate..

President,  found  thin  n.  v re  he c  >;;!d 'not sa."o money no matter  lio.v hard he. Iryed, ao'after taking  Ki.ook of his position he decided upon  a plan  that, woitld  make him  save  iff; went to.a  friend who was th'1  cii-luor   of   the   '.Kirr-t  National   R:!!;1"  ar-ked   if  tlie   bank   would  loan  $100.00.  and  iiim  let T'30  have  the money.

Lord Shaughnessy is very proud of  tn.il first hundred dollars he saved  and- he still has it. And he tells  .this story to inspire us to save.  Q. And is-(his (he way to save it  these war times?  A. No. Instead of making a  bank loan which costs you money,  buy Victory Bonds on the instalment;  plan and pay for them out of yo-.r  savings. Turn your present -"n< a.  ej,g" ,inio Victory Bonds also av.d  thereby substanitally increase your  interest   return.  No  Politics oi' Creed in  Victory  ��������� Honds  Q. I suppose politics and religion  do not enter into Victory  Bonds?  A.������   Decidedly   not.    The   Victory  Loan is the solid backing of a united,  patriotic people.      The ��������� Liberal who '  buys a Victory Bond is not helping  politically the Conservatives or Union  ists.    Neither   is   the   Conservative,  helping   politically���������his   opponent   of  normal'times. He is helping,his fighting  brothers  overseas.    He  is  helping Canada, helping the.-Allies, help-  ling Civilization to defeat tho Huns���������  , and   helping  himself!     If     is     your  | Country��������� Canada���������that asks you   to  J buy Victory Bonds.     When   flic  Victory  Loan   Campaign  gets  into   full  I swing in'November, racial and polii-  : ical strife will be buried in tlie great  j harmonious,  enthusiastic     effort     fo  'secure   the   hundreds  of  millions   of  ! dollars which Canada needs to carry  ion the war and finish Ihe war. There  will   be  Victory   Loan   sermons.   One '  voice only  will bo heard in the Protestant and Ciitholic churches.  Whai is (ho Security P.ehiinl (lie  Victory Honds?  Q.     It  has  frequently been  stated  that Victory  P.onds are the       "Bent  Security   in   the   World".        Is   that  true?  A. If is true for the reason (hat  the bond is backed by the faith and  honor of the whole Dominion of Canada and by taxing power of the  whole country. No country in the ,  world is richer in natural resources'  than Canada.  Q.     Has Canada issued bonds' before;  and if so, has it ever' failed  to  'pay all  of its  bonds  when   they   became due?  A. -Canada has isued bonds before  in fact, the Victory Loan,of 19.18 is  Canada's Fifth War Loaii���������and has  never failed to pay every bond wiiou  it became due with all the interest  on   same.  Q. Are Victory Bonds exempt  from taxation?  A. The hojads aro exempt, both as  to principal and interest from all  Dominion taxes, including any income tax to be levied by the Parliament- of Canada.  Q. Suppose'- Canada offers bo-ids  in future which will pay a higher  rate of interest than o 1-2 per cent?  A. If so. the holder of a Victory  Bond will have the right to exchange  this bond iui* one one bearing ihe  higher rate of interest and running  for equal  or  longer term.  Q. What is the amount of Canada's Victory Loan of  19 18?  A. The Minister of Finance, ia  Ihe official prospectus invites sub--  scriptions for $300,000,000 nominally, and reserves the" "right" to ' ?l!--"c  the whole or any part subscribed '.a  excess of $300,000,000.

K2SJE  HAULINCi   AS  j^iL^nz  'MVCll  Aft   KKKKJIiT   CARS  ^^^^^^^S^^^^^^^z^S^^^S^i^^^r^E^S^SsSS  Thousands of individual motor  trucks engaged in inter-city hauling  are duplicating in time and tonnage  the work done by a corresponding  number of freight cars. A railroad  (rain of !)0 freight, cars will haul no  more merchandise that, a caravan of  ,90 motor trucks. These startling  ��������� statements como from llayinond Heel-  chief engineer of (lie highway transport committee and"chief of'lhe i!. P.  Goodrich lluliber Company's National louring hure-.m.  "Pew person;- realize Ihe tremendous strich's made in highway transportation during the past year,"'said  Mr. , l.i'eck. "C-ur statistics show that  motor 'true-!;:; are doing the same-  work, ton for ton, that, freight furs  are doing. An average freight car  travels but 2 0 miles a day and a  -motor truck will travel 100 miles  in that time. The average capacity  of a freight car is 25 tons. Although  a five-ton truck carries one-fifth the  load of the railroad car, it travels  five times as fast, thus equalizing  their-performances."  Three big transportation problems  are being solved by the highway  transportation centres.  The committee has made extensive  plans to assist the farmers in hauling crops to market or to a central  station, so the farmers will remain on  the farm.    The committee points out.  that one man driving a half ton truck  can haul io market more than three  times the distance in, a given  time.  Use of the truck would therefore release   eight   men' and   10   horses   to  continue work on the farm.  ��������� - Several thousand  trucks are  now  on   rural   express   duty,   but   to   encourage additional operators fo enter  this   unlimited   held   return   bureaus '  are   being   established   in   hundreds  of communities.     By     phoning     the  bureau 'in   his   community   the   farmer  may  leave  word   for  returning  trucks to pick up implements or supplies  for him,  thus  saving  him  the  time and expense of ,a trip_ fo town.  Trailers are destined  to become a  big   factor   in   rural   motor   haulage.  In   some     rural     districts     loading  platforms have been built by farmers  and   two   or   more, trailers  are   employed.     The rural express truck delivers  a  loaded  trailer consigned  to  the route.     A uniform style of trailer,   which   may   be   exchanged,   and  hard-surl'acee.1   roaeUf  are   necessary  ' developments to insure universal success  of   trailer  transportation.  Some -200 return leads bureaus  have been established in the United  States and the system is relieving  thousands of freight cars for war  duty elsewhere. Return loads have  given enormous impetus to intercity hauii.ig by motor trucks, says  Mr.   Beck.  One of the chief reasons for the  railroael tie-up of last winter was  the congestion and confusion at  railroad terminals in the larger cities  To remedy this condition the highway transport committee is mapping Ney York and other larga cities  into zones.  Expressmen and cartage concerns  operating in a specified zone must  carry full loads to and from the  freight siationf--. According, to Mr.  Beck fh'j plan will eliminate the  co m mo a practice of special trips  for small shipments which, will only  partially  iill the trucks or drays.  in This Paper  maa*oswc-r^<3^.;BffiK53a  ITALY Z.KADS ALLIES  J IV  HO-VD  ISSUES  CHICAGO,    Saturday,    Oct..

This is indicated by a, Treasury  report estimating subscriptions of  citizens of thirtyeight foreign nationalities at 974 1,437,000, or nearly IS  per cent of the $4.170,000,000 total  of the third loan.
