"Proclsim liberty throughout the
land, ' unto all the . Inhabitant
thereof," Is the Biblical quotation
which forms the principal Inscription
on the Liberty Bell. It was put on
the bell when It was cast In 1751,
and was supposed to have been se
lected as an Inscription by Isaac Mor
ris, speaker of the colonial assembly
When the bell wss rung at the
! signing of the Declaration of Inde
pendence. July i, 1776. Its Inscrip
tion proved to havt a far greater
meaning than anyone had supposed
it would bars. The quotation Is
from Leviticus xxv, 10.
The bell weighs t.OM) pounds, and la
now supported Inside by means of a
steel "spider." to prevent further crack
ing. A long crack, extending from the
end of the old big crack, and running
partly around the bell near the top, has
appeared on the surface within tha last

the bell. "My Impression ws thst It waa
quite a lot bigger. ' But I guess I got that
notion because I was only a small boy,
14 years old, when I first aaw It, seventy
five years ago. The bell waa of course
much bigger In proportion to my awn

It certainly I all cracked' up now.
When I first saw. it, they say titers wa
a liny crack, which occurred five yeara
