But if there' are any who hive been hesit.iting about buying Victory Bonds under tfii* sesitlmsntal urje, l�t us just s^y to them that, leaving xoviry other consideration aside, the Investment feature of Victory Bonds rr,ak:a It worth any'person's while to sacrifice something to invest. G*fore the war government securities carried anything from three to four ncr ccr.t. Interest, and yet government bonds were always worth in the nc'Qhhorhood of But Victory Bonds cirry 0' 2 per cent., nnd ore free from Income tax. It is quite easy to oee therefore that Victory Bonds are really worth several points over par. Consider thnt until a very few years ago tho city of Lethbrldge never paid more than -V z Per cent, for the money it borrowed, and its bonds sold at par and some times at a premium. Now the government of the Dominion of Cinada, with resources a million times more than Lethbridge can, is paying 5|/2 per cent, interest. You't'make a mistake in buying Victory Bonds.

GERMANS BLOW UP UN AS With tlii> Anu'rlcint Army in Franco, Nov. lii. Twenty Americana taken prisoner by liio Oenisans ^recently wuru lived Info iodiiy and reached the American Hi-os oiipuBlte tho 1st army UurliiB llu day. The war has shattered old party; linen. The electoral reform bill adopted by parliament In the summer of 1917 ris� tually doubled the number of voters, giving tho ballot to all women ovetf 30, men over 21 and saldlere node* 21. This added 6,000,000 women and 2.1(00,000 men to the voting lists. How the women will vote and what parties the soldlern will support none can say. The prospect, of plunging th� coun< try into tho excitement and expense of an election at such times as tho present hns excited strong opposition. On the other hand, the legal life of tho present house of common* expired three years ago and it has extended Us life from term to term by , resolutions. This has been an Informal proceeding which would havo heen Impossible except that It had tho endorsement of public opinion, be-cause no one wanted an election during tho war. As thn new voters will ha entitled to tal;o part in choosing. |he government, Mr. Lloyd Oecrse haa 'before hlra tho difficult task of trying to keep together that minority or thej Conservative part? which supported" his w^r measures and enough Liberals to give him a balance of power. The decisive factors will'ho how many Liberals will follow hltn and what tho Labor party will do. Lead-)- of Liberals Herb�-t Asquith remains the official leader of the Liberal party, while Mr. Lloyd George Is a free lanco without any party organization or party funds behind him. Ho wishes to continue the political truce which all parties declared at Iho beginning of tho war and trusts to the slogan that he Is tho "leader who won tho war" to attract votes. Tho program of his supporters is apparently to nominate Lloyd Georg* Liberals In all districts, where the regular Liberal candidates will not endorse the premier's platform. If this Is carried out it meana a split in th� Liberal party which wftl havo to do. ctde whether the premier or Aaqutth will control. How many candidate* tho Labor party will nominate and how many votes It will muster Is an uncertain element. So far as Ireland la concerned, tb� election probably means the almost total disappearance ot the old Nationalist party ot Redmond and Dillon. The Sinn Fein are expected to sweep southern Ireland, but the members elected by them always refuse to tako tholr seats. In addition to trying to hold together his Conservative and Liberals aup^ porters, the premier is trying to reconcile the Asquith faction. Mr. Asquith could have had a high seat In the present cabinet if ho would have accepted It. There .wero two obstacles, however. Home Itule and protection. One) of those tho Conservatives w
