Last Thursday while a plowman was at work on the farm he plowed over the plug and it came out and the oil at once commenced to flow. Mr. G. R.

The rural . mail carriers, Mr. Kaufman explained, .'had fitilen behind the city carriers in n The Liberty Loan Campaign, which has just started offers War Savings organizations a splendid opportunity to stimulate popular interest in the "baby bonds," as War Savings Stamps have been termed. Bear in mind the fact that the Liberty Loan campaign is destined primarily to reach those in a community who have sufficient funds to buy bonds. Hardly over of the country's population can be counted on to invest in Liberty Bonds, the smallest of which is 50, but every man, woman and child in the country can afford to buy at least one 5 War Savings Stamp. Thrift Stamps and War Savings Stamps make their appeal to ONE HUNDRED MILLION Americans, whereas not over ten million Americans, at the most, are able to buy the Liberty Bonds. While the Liberty Loan campaign is on there will be many millions of patriotic Americans who will wish to do their share, but who can not afford to invest ?50 or more. Their means do not equal their ambition to help. THEY WILL WELCOME THE OPone-tenth PORTUNITY AT THIS PSYCHOLOGICAL TIME to buy the War Savings Stamps, which in effect are the same as United States Government bonds. There is scarcely one of us who can not become an owner of at least one Thrift Stamp, or a War Savings Stamp, and none of us can invest more than $826 ($1,000 maturity value) in War Savings Stamps.

One Minute Man Says That Way to Make Saving Pleasant Is By Forming War Saving Societies Among Friends. Professor J. W. Marion, who has charge of the Thrift Stamp campaign in Christian County, gives to the New Era this message for the people: I have been drafted as a One Min- ute Man to be a Paul Revere as it "were to bring to you a message in three parts. 1. The government needs the labor, materials and transportation which you deprive it of by needless spending. Stop competing against your gov ernment. That means spending less for things you do not need now. Then loan what you save to the government by buying War Saving Stamps. The money you pay for stamps will provide supplies and ammunition for our boys in France. 2. You "will find "going without" much easier and much more pleasant when your friends join you in saving. The way to do this is to join or to form a War Savings Society among the people you work with, play with, eat with, study with or live with. The newspapers will give you further information and the War savings (Committee will be glad to hear from you. 3. Take one minute and tell some one "what I have told you and ask HIM to be a One Minute Man and to pass this message on and on! Enlist! All ye good friends and patrons!

For the purpose of selling these Stamps, War Savings Societies are being organized throughout the State, and in each county there is a Chairman who will be glad to furnish all necessary information. I desire to urge upon the Masons of Kentucky the importance of buying these Stamps and doing everything possible to cause others to buy them. Our country is today facing the greatest struggle of its existence and It is the immediate duty of every Mason to assist in every way possible. I, therefore, request that this communication be read in each of the Subordinate Lodges and that, wherever possible, these Societies be organized. Let every Mason In Kentucky buy War Savings Stamps.

Appropriations already made and bills now pending in Congress make it certain that the first two years of the war will cost America thirty-thre- e billion dollars. These figures are conservative. Indications are the expense will be many millions more daily. Few persons have grasped the meaning of this stupendous sum. What doea this huge sum mean to the people of the United States? Here are some of the things It means: That an obligation of $330 has been piled up against every one of the men, women and children in the United States. If it were necessary to pay off the present war debt at once, the head of a family of four would have to pay $1,320, more available cash than the average family of that size has. Freedom comes high. Every 24 hours Uncle Sam must spend and Is1 spending more than $25,000,000 at 25 cents a day for every man, woman and child in the nation. The expenses of the government are 16 times as much under war conditions as in peace times. Not until 1910 did the" expenditures of the United States reach a billion dollars in a year. This year, the first in the war, Congres3 appropriated $18,802,027,501. In 1898, the year of the war, the total appropriations were less than half a billion dollars $485,002,044, or of the cost of about one thirty-sixtthe first year In the present war. In addition to voting more than cash for the first year of the war. Congress authorized tho government to enter into additional contracts which aggregate $2,511,000,000, to be paid for at later dates as the work progresses. Where millions of dollars formerly created Interest in Congress, billions of dollars scarcely arouse a moment's attention, because everybody at Washington realizes that the best wy to win the war in the shortest time is to throw the whole resources of the nation into the struggle and support the brave men who are "over there." The war machinery for a year will cost in dollars and cents an amount that staggers the imagination. Here are some of the estimates submitted to Congress by the military branches. 100,-000,0- 00 Spanish-America- n h g lf over-subscripti- well-groome- d, bread-makin- g Army, fortifications", $6,610,223,209; navy, $1,039,800,000; $3,332,445,122; sundry civil, $1,160,242,998.
