Editor  THE WAR LOAN���������THE  PATRIOTIG'FUND  "England expects that every  hi an this day   will do his' dvr.ty.v  In this instance we take this  term in its broadest meaning  and include all British possessions, dominions and dependencies.  England can boast that, in the  past her men have done their  duty, else the mu.cih dreaded  domination of the Hun would be  now a condition,  not'a menace.  That her men will again do  their duty, England knows,  hence her appeal to the colonies.'  Canada has done well. She  has sent not only her best men,  .butshe has responded ���������'promptly anel well 'to;'every;''''.'ill for encouragement for i.'.os'e men  while ftir from thoir,homes, exposed to the da.ugcivs. and discomforts of war.       -.;������������������'   <  When the need "se'bi-ned to be  imminent for a fund to provide  machine guns, the response  came readily from all over Can-  ada,   from the   Atlantic   to the  Pacific.  When the appeal "came for  tobacco the response was whole and   assures  their loved ones a  came, nere ana gave a  cible exposition of its origin, its  purpose and its working, but  w-.e desire to add just this much,  namely that it has absolutely  no connection whatsoever with,  the Avar loan or with the government.  The war loan presented an  opportunity for Canadians to  avail themselves of a first-class  investment, siui]>Iy an iiitcrcst-  beai'ing proposition, initiated  by the government, giving a  very fair return for the,money  invested.' and repayable in a  most satisfactory way and  time.       '������������������.",..  Any man in Canada, provident enough to have saved a  few hundred, dollars could have  gotten in on the ground floor  and many of them did, and the  loan was over subscribed.  So much for the war lorn and  now for the Patriotic Fund..  This also is an investment.  Every, man, woman and child  in Canada, native or foreign,  should have a share in this f unci.  It represents the only organized method whereby the man  who * cannot go to fight, can  still show his loyalty and pttt-  riotism. The Patriotic Fund is  the ammunition of the stay-at-  homes. In a large sense it is  the sinews of war as far as Canada is concerned. It is the  means best adapted for the man  with responsibilities and dependants r.o do "his bit". Whereas  it does not carry on the war, it  puts heart   into those  who  do  fund asking for a liberal response. In proportion as you  take stock in this proposition  will you realize on your investment, not money but peace of  mind, satisfaction that comes  from the- knowledge that even  if you could not go, you at least  will help to hearten those who  have gone.  As principle is .infinitely  stronger than gain, as right is  immeasurably greater than  might, so is the return from  money invested in the Patriotic  Fund a greater' dividend payer  than money invested in the  war loan.

Tlie re were people who thought it would be  impossible to raise that amount  of money in Canada during  these hard times. But the re-  sponce, twice the amount was  available and the spirit manifested was such as to warrant  tho government in its decision  to raise another big loan in the  future.  Canada has"' dbire Avdnders in'  the year and a half of the war,  but the greatest task is yet before her. To provide for the  dependants, and the wioiindod  and brokemrnen who have been  to the war and !\vi11 return to  resume their' activities at home  again. In this work"th'b greatest factor has been the Patriotic Fund, under the direct patronage and supervision of His  Koyal Highness The Duke of  Connaught, Governor-General  of Cjinada, uncle of Hi's Majesty  King G<iorge the Fifth.
