But when you actually stand in a little room about 12 feet wide and 20 feet deep and are told that it normally contains a round billion of dollars in Uncle Sam's best currency and securities, the old thrill is bound to take hold of you. Above is depicted the "b'llion del- lar vault" in the basement of the Fed-- . eral Reserve Bank of Cleveland. Your Liberty Bonds, you who live in the Fourth Federal Reserve district, have been in that vault. And these men handled them before they went to you. The three men shown are W. A. Kleeb, auditor of the Liberty Loan De-- 1 partment of the bank; D. B. Clouser, custodian of securities, and C. H. Griffith, assistant auditor of the Liberty Loan Department. They are checking ln3ssnfei:.: huge BjjsjsyfBnnnnnnwnnygannwnsganuuaaBn over bonds of the Fourth Loan which are about to be shipped out to the banks and thence distributed to you who bought them. In the trunk and on the table in the picture there are about $200,000,000 worth of bonds. Some of the burden of distribution was lifted from the shoulders of the men in the photo in the Fourth Loan. The bonds wer shipped to the banxs in the Cincinnati and Pittsburgh territories from the branch banks in those cities. In the previous loans all were shipped direct from Cleveland. in this same vault are handled all the certificate? cf indebtedness which are bought by banks in the interim between Liberty Bond issues and which are turned in in payment for bonds when the purchase is made. In the Third Loan these men handled, checked and shipped two and a half million pieces and in the Fourth Loan they handled, checked and shipped four million. Marion Holcomb, of Nancy, Ky., says: "For quite I suffered with stomach trouble. I would have pains and a heavy feeling after my meafs, a most disagreeable taste in my mouth. If I ate anything with butter, oil or grease, I would spit it up. I began to have regular sick headache. I had used pills and tablets, but after a course of these, I would be constipated.
