Paddock Publications A timely warning should be sounded now re the danger of rifles in the hands of youngsters and oldsters. The distance a rifle bul- carries is generally overlooked. Last fall a rifle bullet went through the window of the house behind us and if the lady had been sitting in her favorite she would have been killed. -Another rifle bullet punctured the-body of a car parked between our house and barn. The neighbors dog was shot in the leg and had to be kill- ed. This spring when rabbits were bothering the Victory Gar- dens a rifle bullet went through a cow's udder in the pasture across the street. A carpenter making repairs to the building across the street was almost the bul- let coming so close that the man felt the wind of its passing. Several years ago a man. spread- ing manure from a wagon was just missed by a rifle bulU-t fired through a copse of trees. All of this happened on less than 40 acres of ground. No one likes to spoil anothers fun but the confined quarters of a subdivision make rifle practice Buy victory buy victory There is no substitute for and there can be no let down on the battle front or the home front until victory is won. We ask so much from our fighting men. Many are giving life and limb. We are asked merely to lendsour money. Truly a small price for the privilege of being a citizen of our great land. We hope that we soon will witness the triumphal return of our men in uniform. On that great day we will have to take accqunt of ourselves. Will we be able to watch ithe colors pass and know that we have done om full one is compelled to buy except by the dictates of his own conscience. The fact that Wai' Bonds offer the best investment that is possible to is in itself reason enough to buy to the limit of our ability.
