How Much Are You Willing to Loan For The Defence Of Your Freedom? HOW can you answer this inic-Hilon? Only by imagining for a moment that yon wore about to lose that freedom, that upon your willingness to loan depended your life und the lives of your family. There could be hut one answer-you would gi'e all you pos.-ess. For four years the Allies have fought n gallant figlu for freodom, ami Money has paid for it. Your money has helped to pay for Canada's share In this -wonderful struggle against the forces of oppression. Last year jtnO.ouo inople iii Canada loaned their money to Canada to protect their homes and firesides agalns'. Iho ruthless advance of the enemies of civilization. Today. NOW. Canada says to you. "We are on the threshold of Victory: one grand rallv mid we shall push the madman of Kurope hack across his own frontier and draw tin: teeth of tlio gray wolf of C'erinatiT." Today Canada ask- her people for a great enthusiastic response to The Victory Loan 1918 Canada wilt not ask in vain. Since the 1M7 loan was floated last year we have �oen the Herman hordes advance through France, devastating and spreading ruin as they came. Wo have sefln them cheeked. Wo have seen them pushed back, and we know that Money, and Money alone, has eunbled our gallant men to do what ihey have done. We know that money in vast sums has organized our armies, clothed and fed them and supplied them with guns and r.uimuultion. Today Money is needed for Ihe last great stages, of this war for freedom. More than a million loyal ami patriotic Canadians will come forward this year with all they can afford. Ami You will he one of these! And having loaned your money to Canada, you will I Ml of It to other.', that our Victory Loan, tl'ls may he the greatest Canadian success of this war.

DIED IN WINNING VICTORIA CROSS : Three of Seven New Recipients Do Not Live to Enjoy Great Honor That Is Theirs London, Nov I.-Canadian Press despatch from neuter's. Limited- ; The first three >of the seven new Victoria Cross recipients were killed while performing their final heroic deeds, i In some cases a series, which are officially and briefly recorded. Particulars may be cited of two cases to exemplify the bravery shown by all. i Capt. Richard Annesley West of a �tank corps, while commanding a battalion of light tanks found the infan-itry endangered hy an enemy counter-I attack. Despite extremely heavy ln.1.-j chine gun lire and the propinnuPv of the enemy. West rallied tho men who j had lost their officers and hastily is-isuod orders. West then rode up and down in front of them in the face of certain death, encouraging the men 'and calling on them: "Stick to It. mop, j show then fight; and for God's sake jput up a good fight."' He fell riddled I with machine gun bullets. I lis magnificent bravery Inspired the Infantry I to redouble their efforts and tho hos-ilile attack was defeated. ) Another member of the tank corps, | Lieut. C. Howell, showed equal reckless regard for his personal safety. I When commanding the whippet light | tanks he left the tank and crossed I open ground under heavy shell fire jund machine gun fire in order to res-: cue the crew of another whippet which j had sideslipped into a large shell hole land had overturned and was on fire. JTiie tank door was jammed against ithe side of the shellhole. Howell, unaided, dug a way through the entrance iof the door and released Ihe crew, j thereby saving Ihem from certain deuth. I Lien!, Howell, later on the same oc-jcasiou was hit while rescuing a wound-jed man under murderous fire.. He was ieventually killed tho fiamn day while attending to other wounded men. ' Tho description Is also published of I live exploits by one recipient, namely, ! Chief Petty Officer George Prowse of ' the naval service. Regardless of dan-! get- he led parties against xtronr; ma-! chine gun points and captured garrisons and weapons. On the last occa-I fdoii lie was the sole survivor of a gul-jlant party. His courage is recorded : as superb and his leadership* was an ' inspiration to all.

Shame on the Laggard and Slacker FIGHTING until they are shot down, protesting as they ave carried off the field, laughing while they suffer and giving with their last breath, these are the boys we are buying VICTORY BONDS to help. It seems unfitting that we should remind ourselves that we arc only lending, that we are benefitting ourselves with every Bond we buy. The very least that we can do is to lend to the utmost. "Lend the way they fight," never stopping to count the cost. 1 This space gladly donated lo the Victory Loan 1918 Campaign hy Western Grocers Limited ;
