Dear lad, symbolical of all
Who died with you that we might live
Because you answered duty's call, .
Accept the love that we would give.
The angels took your name away
And now we call you our Unknown
A wondrous thought, for so we say
That, each may claim you for his own.
A prince's coat you may have worn,
Or rags have dressed you in the past;
Perhaps you were an alien-born,
Though All-American at last.
Your blood has quenched along its course
The fires of hate, and who can tell,
But that pure stream, with gathering force,
May some day quench the fires of hell!
From fields with Flanders poppies red,
You're coming back, no more to roam,
And with our martyred make your bed.
In daisy-sprinkled fields of home.

That the finished product of farm

as the farmer or cattle grower

today at a conference held under

The figures were supplied by J.
N. Van De Vries, Chicago, gene

Hal D. Patton calls attention
to the fact and also points with
pride, to the fact that since he
and Edward Schunke and Joseph
Baumgartner were appointed as a
special committee for the city
council to look into delinquent
taxes, many who were in arrears
have been paying up.
The committee instructed the
city treasurer to issue certificates
of delinquency on assessments in
arrears. These certificates when
issued draw 12 percent interest,
Mr. Patton said, and may be pur
chased by anyone.
In many instances where prop
erty owners have been unable to
pay taxes assessed for improve
ments, all in one payment, the
council has been liberal and per
mitted owners to bond. By this
means, a heavy improvement tax
against a property may be paid
in 10 annual installments.
By issuing certificates of delin
quency and bringing suit, the city
is now owner of several dots in
Oaks addition, and will probably
foreclose on others.
It is probable that some action
will be taken on delinquent taxes
on property on South Twejfth
Btreet. As soon as a number of
certificates of delinquency have
been issued, and the property ac
quired by the city, it is probable
that the city will hold a sale of
