The Hatchet Crusade.

(Dedicated to Mrs. Carry Nation.)

Oh, woman, armed with one little hatchet.
Fighting for justice and right,
And with your brave mother courage
Knowing your cause was right,

You’ve done more to hasten God’s kingdom,
And to crush satan’s power o’er men,
Than countless numbers of creation’s lords,
With the power of the ballot thrown in.

You’ve awakened the mothers to action
Whose powers have long dormant been,
While the minions of satan have strained every nerve
To ruin our boys and our men.

Rouse, mothers, too long we’ve been sleeping,
Shall one of us let it be said
That we calmly stood by while those who are dear
Were down to destruction led.

American mothers, hear me,
If you think God will not send the warning
In hieroglyphics upon the wall?
God is not mocked, He is just the same,

And has given the power to you.
If you’re weighed and found wanting our nation will fall
Because you did not your duty do.
Then let us unfurl our broad banners,
Fling their folds to the breezes high,
Let this still be our motto,
"We’ll trust in God, and keep our powder dry."
—CARRIE CHEW SNEDDON.

YOUR BALLOT IS YOUR HATCHET

The Home Defender. The Home Builder.

"Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home."

TO CUT OUT THE EVIL ----------------------------------------------------------------------

The above is the heading of my paper which I am now publishing at Guthrie, Okla.

I know that the mass of the people are in the dark concerning my work and the need of it, because of the misrepresentations of the rum-bought press. I have written my book which gives the facts of God’s calling me into this work because He loves the people and has heard the mothers’ prayers.

I want every person who reads this announcement to send for a free sample copy of the "Hatchet." It will open your eyes. It will make prohibition votes.

The aroused motherhood of this nation SHALL rescue her children and stop the soul-destroying, vote-protected, licensed-for-money liquor traffic in its annual slaughter of a hundred thousand of her sons.

If you want a prohibition paper that even the enemies of prohibition will subscribe for and read, write to "The Hatchet" for terms. It is a sixteen page illustrated monthly magazine, 25cts per year. It is a "hit" and smashes where it hits.

Special offer: Send the names of ten of the most active prohibition men and women of your neighborhood and ten cents, and you will receive "The Hatchet" for one year.

Full time workers can make good wages and many converts to prohibition by selling my book. "The Use and Needs of the Life of Carry A. Nation." For terms write "The Hatchet," Guthrie, Okla.

Special Offer: Send us 50cts and we will send you the book and also "The Hatchet" for one year. After receiving the book if you are not satisfied return it in good condition inside of seven days and we will refund your money.

DO IT NOW. While you wait, liquor wins! Procrastination is the thief of time—of votes—of souls!

Address, "THE HATCHET," Guthrie, Oklahoma
