GIRLS ARE LOYAL

TON PURCHASE BONDS, AND
HELP WIN THE WAR.
From Monday's Daily.
It is a natural thing to say the
boys of the Burlington shops, and
truly so for they are a good loyal
bunch, and can always be depended
upon, when anything is to be put
over. The way they have subscrib
ed for the bonds is a sure conclu
sion of this fact. Now the Burling
ton shop girls, are here with the
coin to. for they have all subscrib
ed for bonds, and in liberal quanti
ties. The fact of the girls being 100
per cent is very gratifying, not
alone to them but to all concerned.
The employes of the shops are all
doing their part to win the war and
we ire going to. There is a tend
ency to be a little easy on bonds in
some directions on account of our
success at arms in the battle arena,
but remember that now is the lime
for all to stand together in this
matter, while the victory is in sight,
put forth every effort, in man pow
er, and every cent which can be
spared, for just now they both will
do the most possible..
