WWI Newspaper Clipping

Here is a clipping from a WWI ad, saved by my grandmother. I think this came from a Baptist WWI Ministry, as it was included in a notebook she had kept with other related articles and writings. This print most likely dates to 1917.

On the back side is another clipping depicting a "nun"-type person tending to orphans of the war. In her writing are the words, "My heart yearns in silence with a sorrow all unknown, For those dear homeless children who are doomed to walk life's pathway alone."
