Love demonstrates itself in kisses
and caresses; wrong again, yiiere
the greatest show is made we often
find the least love. Kisses and ca
resses are only the emotions of the
inner self, more or less se'.tish. How
often do we squeeze and smother a
poor little helpless babe with kisses
for our own gratification, and the
child's discomfort, often detrimen
tal. We hear neople profess to
love one another, bui wait until
they are called upon .o make some
great sacrifice, without one grain
of honor or praise, even lowering
themselves in the sight of man.
Here is the test of real love. Many
things are branded cowardice in this
world which take more love and
courage than facing the fiercest
Love suffereth longand is kind;
love envieth not; love vaunteth not
itself, is not puffed up. doth not be
have itself unseemly, seeketh not
her own, is not easily provoked,
thinketh no evil, rejoices no in in
iquity, but rejoices in the truth.
Love beareth all things; love never
faileth;' love that hides self to exalt
another forgets its own comforts i
for the comfort of another; in fact,
dies daily to the things of self to
win our enemies. This is love in
all its fullness. Sot.
Love is a disease that most peo
ple catch during their lifetime. It
overpowers the lovers and all they
think of is love. It gives some peo
ple sorrow and others happiness. It
makes some jealous and jealousy
soon grows into hatred. Then be
ing overpowered bj .hatred they try
to do harm to the ones who turned
down their love for that of another.
That is my idea of love.
Love is the depth of the soul; it
is pure, unselfish, sacrificing, kind,
gentle, patient, obedient and perse
vering. Love is that which neither
one of our five senses can reach; yet
we know it is present.
Love is the gift of God; where

Love is the greatest thing in the
world, here I am lost, who can give
me a definition to this word When
the school boy was asked to give a
definition of light, he answered
"Light is light." When you ask me
to define the word love, I give you
the boy's definition, "Love is love."
Ask not qf me love, what is love.
Ask what is giftnl of God above,
Ask not the great sun, what is light,
Ask what is darrkness of the night.
Ask not sin what may be forgiven,
Ask what is happiness of heaven,
Ask not what is folly of the crowd.
Ask what is fashion of the shroud,
Ask not what is sweetness of
Ask thyself what beauty is.
The best definition ever given to
this word was given by the humble
fisherman along the banks of Gal
lilee, who said God is love.
In peace love tunes the shepherd's
In war he mounts the warrior's
In hall of gray attire i,s seen
In hamlet dancing on the green.
Love rules the court, the camp, the
And men below and saints above,
For love is' heaven and heaven is
Love is nothing but an abcess to
a man's pocketbook.
Love, which occurs in everyone's
life, is the most heavenly feeling of i
one individual toward another.

WE respectfully and urgently, appeal to all of the
patriotic men and, women, who have in former
campaigns been so successful in putting Nebraska
"over the .top," to answer the call of their chairman
to help in, organizing the state for the coming sale of
about Sixty Million Dollars in Treasury Notes.
The campaign will be an energetic and vigorous one
of short duration and will commence officially on Mon
day, April 21.
The Secretary of the Treasury announces that this will

Nebraska has taken in four former campaigns $180,000,000.00 in Lib

Nebraska has gained indefinitely more in a selfish and commercial

of government securities, what will our answer be to those 47,000 Nebras

It is up to the Liberty Loan Workers, who know the game, to join
