If "Liberty" Could Speak.
An allegorical account of the war
work of the Jewish Sisterhood, Blng
hamton, N. Y., written by the Presi
dent, Mrs. S. IL Hams, shows the
spirit that pervaded the activities of
all the Sisterhoods during the war.
The writer imagines herself directed
by "Liberty" to the meeting rooms or
the Sisterhood on Nov. 11 1918. They
are greeted by the members. 'Teace
has been declared." The account in
brief is as follows:
Liberty greeted the assemblage:
"Good afternoon, you have helped
MR. WILL L SARGENT
Vice President of the De Soto Pe
troleum Co., and who is well known in
Fort Worth, is the man that put over
the Burk-Waggoner Oil Co. and for
each one hundred dollars invested,
stockholders received $3,333.33. Just
think of it, a person investing $1000
getting in return $33,333.30. Else
where in this paper is his other propo
sition the De Soto Petroleum Co. and
the readers should read it over care,
fully as the old saying is "nothing suc

"I beg your pardon, Liberty," I
cried. "We have done very little."
"I know you well," replied the hap
py voice "When the first call for Lib
erty Bonds came you aided me by aid
ing their sale. You helped during the
second Liberty Loan Drive to raise a
very large contribution from your
very small community. Later, when
the call for assistance to your suf
fering brethren in the war zone came,
did I look with pride at your work in
"But," I said impatiently, "that is
very little to do!"
"The little you do helps to make me.
I am what your help makes me, noth
ing more. I am strong with pride when
I review your work of the summer
and fall of 1918, and note your re
sponse in Canteen work. In the name
of all I represent I call forth praise
for your devotion."
"Yes, that is true. We have assist
ed in sustaining the Jewish Welrans
Board," I added, now having more
courage. "We affiliated with other
Jewish organizations and by distri
bution of banks in Jewish homes we
raised $150 for the United War Work
Campaign. One hundred and fifty gift
boxes were sent to the boys at camps
About to depart. Liberty swayed be
fore us a symbol of purity in her white
robe. Bright with cheer, brilliant with
courage, firm with faith, we saw the
vision fade from our eyes and turned
to our work with renewed effort for
we are makers of Liberty and we glo
ry in its making.
Because of kindred grace,
White angels glimpsed your shining
Man's tide of dreams drifts high,
But ebbs before this mural goal,
Where oft tired steps so humbly trod,
In close communion with your home
Where mankind learns to know its
Yours was no idle feint
Of what dead souls judge joy of life,
But when the lights gleamed low
Or peace would shed its blood for
We found your groping hand, some
how And soothed our sighs in its sure clasp
Like spent birds seek their sheltering
Nor is love's labor lost
In service to the final end,
For you had fulfilled all
Of saint and wife and changeless
What grand ovation can man sing
When immortelles lie crushed in dust,
How eulogize this sacred thing
Of perfect love and untouched trust?
I am in part of you!
Praised be for this beauteous grace
Of inspiring martyrdom
To live my life in purpose true.
What right have I
To fairy face,
Great, golden bars which separate
Mere mortals from their super-selves,
Me from my mother's righteous fate?
