OFTHg^�VAR � THE NEARER THE PEACE TMeBETTEJ* THE BOND .Nobody'iaila-mora completely-to graap the financial situation than the man who says; "Peace aeema hear, so I will buy no Victory Bonds." Tlie rate of Interest which Victory Bonda pVy is a war rate. There ia no reason to believe that Government bonds Issued in peace timea will bear any .such rate of Interest as S'/z per cent., free from taxation. So when peace comes the position of the man who has Invested In Victory Bonda will be this. Whatever induatrlal upheaval there may be, he will have a gilt-edged security-a securhy backed by all the assets of Canada, her fields and her forests and her mines apd her fisheries; assets which are etltl there and atlll goodKho matter what happens. Moreover, he will have a security which will pay a higher rate of In-terea^ all things conaidered, than after-the-war securities of similar stability. That means, It will increaae in value. Just as a house would increase in value, if leased for a long term of years at a higher rental than similar' heuaea could command. 1^0 sympathy with, tliat iype of creature a\ all. rTlte more difficult it is inade for  him to hoard his wealth, the bettet pleased we will be.
