Statue of Liberty design patent

In 1897, a U.S. design patent was issued to Auguste Bartholdi for a monumental statue intended to commemorate the independence of the United States, “Liberty Enlightening the World,”now known as the Statue of Liberty (No. D11,023). The patent described the design as “a female figure standing erect upon a pedestal or block ... The body is clothed in the classical drapery or stola ... The right arm is thrown up and stretched out with a flamboyant torch grasped in the hand ... In the left arn, which is falling against the body, is held a tablet, upon which is inscribed ‘4th July, 1776.’... The head is surmounted by a crown or diadem, from which radiate divergingly seven rays tapering from the crown, and representing a halo.... ”«

A Faithful Woman

An elderly Muslim lady was well-known for her faith and for her confidence in talking about it. She would stand in front of her house and say "Allah be praised" to all those who passed by.
Next door to her lived an atheist who would get so angry at her proclamations he would shout, "There ain't no Lord!!"
Hard times came upon the elderly lady, and she prayed for Allah to send her some assistance. She would pray out loud in her night prayer "Oh Allah! I need food!! I am having a hard time, please Lord, PLEASE LORD, SEND ME SOME GROCERIES!!"
One night the atheist happened to hear her as she was praying, and decided to play a prank on her. The next morning the lady went out on her porch and found a large bag of groceries. She raised her hands and shouted, "Allah be praised!."
The neighbor jumped from behind a bush and said, "Aha! I told you there was no Lord. I bought those groceries, God didn't."
The old lady laughed and clapped her hands and said, "ALLAH BE PRAISED. He not only sent me groceries, but he made the devil pay for them!"
