THE BEST BOND. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 29 June 1917

THE BEST BOND. -::o:: Aside and altogether apart from the patriotic phase, an Anustralian YWar Loan Bond or War Savings Certificate is an excellent investment. The Commonwealth War Loanse already floated and the War Savings Certificates now offered, in point of merit, rank ahead of all other Australian securities and investments. Our credit is good at homo and abroad; no one here, or for that matter, anywhere also, doubts the stability of the Common wealth qovernment, who are the bor rowers. Australia will be able to meet the interest. on its War Loans without any dificulty. Our shores are free from the invader, and, thanks to the British Navy, are likely to remain so. While the Commonwealth is prosecuting its share of the Woarvigorously, those who are staying at home should see that the greatest production is achieved from the soil and from natural resources, also that their effort to provide their share of the War finances never for a moment slackens. War oavings Certificates are ...
