10 'THE.OIL CITY DIEEICK, TU16DAT JtOWflKO, APKIL 30, IfllS. . The Voice of Lincoln \ /^\N November, 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln made an immortal speech on the'Battlefield of Gettysburg. His words ring as clear and as true today—line for line a message to Americans at war—as they did when he spoke them so eloquently more than half a century ago.

But our over- 1 whelming offering of .dollars to.:our country will show the world that we shall not turn back—that we have resolved —and acted on that high resolve—" that these dead shall not have died in vain."
