THE PARADOX OF AVAR.
It is the paradox of war that its sa
crifices may enrich the world.
America's latest war has cost thou
sands of lives and untold agony, first
to the wounded, and then to the men
and women and litttle . children whe
have stayed at home, powerless to dc j
more than to work and to. pray, and j
who loved with an ever-increasing
love those heroic ones who laid down
their lives, or who. suffered the tor
tures of the physical body that the ci
vilization of a Christian world might
Aganst this fearful total it is pos
sible, however, to balance a 'credit
which may remove something of the !
horrors of four years of strife. It may
be that America alone is able to mar- ,
shal such a list of war assets, and ii
so it is simply another testimony oi
the miracle of democracy. But -there
are millions of men who have beer
given a kind of health they never hop
ed to have. There are tens of milli
ons, a hundred million Americans whe
have been elevated in soul and-puri-'
fied in heart by 'the sacrifices of pa
triotism, and smallest perhaps of al
these items there are scores of mil
lions of Americans who have beei
taught by the exigencies of war. tht
invaluable lesons of economy anc
In the face of what was considered
an almost insuperabLe obstacle, the
high cost of living, more women and
children in all walks of life have been
taught than in America self-denial
need not reach the point of want to
enable one to lay by store for the fu
ture, or to contribute to a, commoi
cause. . -
There is scarcely an individual in
the United StateE who is not, or has
not been, the possessor of a Liberty
Bond or a War Savings Certificate.
These securities represent power that
has been stored up for future use.
This power has for the time being
been placed in the hands of the Gov
ernment. Like a torch, it is to be restored to
its owner with the flame undiminished
while the business and industries of
the nation must pay the cost of the
struggle that made their continuance
The Fifth Liberty Loan campaign
offers probably the last big opportun
ity to lay by savings with the co-operation
and for the assistance of the
Government. It should be the endea
vor of every citizn who has sacriflcd

IN FLANDERS FIELDS
By Lt. Col". John D. McRae.
(Written during the second "battle of
Ypres, 1915. The author. Dr. John D.
McCrae. of Montreal, Can., was killed
in Flanders, January 28, 191S) .
In Fanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks.still bravely singing, fly.
Scarce heard amidst the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glowr
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields. j
Take up our quarrel with the foe!
To you from falling hands we throw
The torch. Be ydurs to hold it high!
If you break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies
grow v :

AMERICA'S ANSWER. 4
By R, W. Lillard
(Written after the death of Lieut. Col.
McRae, author of "In Flanders Fields,"
and printed in the New York Evening
Rest ye in peace, ye. Flanders dead,
The fight that ye so bravely led
We've taken up. . And we will keep
True faith with you who lie asleep,
With each a cross to mark his bed,
And poppies blcfwdng , ovjerhifad,
Where once his own life blood ran
So let yrnir rest be sweet and deep
In Flanders fields.
Fear not that ye have died for naught,
The torch ye threw to use we caught
Ten million hands will hold it high,
And freedom's light shall never die!
We've learned- the lesson that y
taught ' ,
In Flanders fields.
