One is by 'taxation. The other is by (he sale of bonds, which is a method of borrowing money. The Government bond is theynintcd promise of the Government to pay back the borrowed sum of money at a certain time, and to pay interest on it at regular intervals until it h repaid. The government borrows money in this way only after it has been rnv- w en the right to do so hy act of Congress approved by the President, and the ttrms of the loan arc set out in the act. Back of the promise of the Government stands the honor of the Government and all its tit.xing resources. �Really the whole wealth of I lie Nation stands behind this'solemn promise .of the Government to pay. �This makes a United Stiites Government bond the safest investment in the,world.' If the bond of Hie United States Government b not safe, no proper! v in iheUmicd Stnies is saTe. If the United Slates can not pay its bondv is is hardly probable that Do vou thoughtlessly or intention?; ally spit upon ih-: sidewalksandpavement's? m If so-atop it! It is a filthy and vulgar habit. Why should you mutilate the appearance of your town, Besides being a disgusting sight to every passer-by, this is one of the most prolific means of spreading disease /jenns. No one who has a degree of civic pndci or a right conception of "personal liberty" will indulge in this dangerous practice. It is to he hoped that in other places the public conscience may be aroused tosuchanextent that offend-crs may be brought to a realization ^ of their acts and be restrained from further offense in this matter. Many cities of Michigan have an anti-spitting ordinance and policemen arc authorized to arrest any person who so offend public decency. The State Board of Health wishes to co-operate with the people of this fh ale against this .dangerous practice and will supply placards to be placed hi public places,'depots, street antl other common carriers* These placards may be had for such purposes, by addressing the Secretary, Lansing, Michigan.
