A big pheasant flew through the glass in the front door at the home of Mrs. Nola Rose at 807 Tenth Avenue, Sunday. Her son, Tommy, was just ready to go out the door and was cut about the nose, requiring two stitches. The pheasant flew on in the house and broke its neck. Tommy got his pheasant without going hunting.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That marked our place; and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly,
Scarce heard amidst the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
To you from falling hands we throw
The torch. Be yours to hold it high!
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. – John D. McCrae

Rest ye in peace, ye Flanders dead.
The fight that ye so bravely led
We’ve taken up. And we will keep
True faith with you who lie asleep
With each a cross to mark his bed,
With poppies blowing overhead,
Where once his own lifeblood ran red.
So let your rest be sweet and deep
In Flanders fields.
Fear not that ye have died for naught
The torch ye threw to us, we caught.
Ten million hands will hold it high,
And Freedom’s light shall never die!
We’ve learned the lesson that ye taught
In Flanders fields. – R. W. Lillard
