Liberty At Work

Liberty township, which recently contributed $76 to the Scott Co. Soldier’s Relief Association, collected through the efficient efforts of A. M. Frost, Esq., the member of the Association’s finance committee for said township and his assistants, is preparing for still more liberal subscriptions in aid of our wounded. It is proposed to organize a Township Association auxiliary to that of the county, and by means of a small weekly contribution from each member to secure a permanent fund to be drawn upon by the parent Association as necessity may require. The plan is a good one, and is deserving of imitation all over the county. We are sure that the patriotic citizens of Liberty will demonstrate its feasibility and its practical value to the cause.
