Little John Gilmore has been
carrying quite an ugly patch of ban
dages on his forehead the past few
days as a result of a little "fire
cracker" game he was playing with
a number of his playmates. The
game happened to be the genuine old
fashioned "whipcracker" that we
all played when we were boys, and
little John filled the tail end posi
tion and was thrown into the con
crete walk. John calls it firecrack
er and it might be more appropriate
when the tail end position is filled
with his experience.

WHAT THEY THINK
Here is a verse which one of the
soldier boys wrote while resting at
the Hotel Wagner, a few days, since
and has been handed to irs,
'Hello Plattsmouth, This is Ft. Crook'
Nestled in a rolling country.
From the Fort a half hour ride;
We found a "Peppy" little city.
That from the world try'ng to hide
We had heard about the people living
In that quiet little spot,
Se we went ther full of wonder
And we found more than we sought
A little city with the 'raakins,'
Of l first class place to dwell,
Found we hiddn there so quietly,
And. we rush back home to tell.
Soon the boys all started comiag
To that place on day and night;
To enjoy the hospitation,
And to take in all the sights.
Just a moment, don't 'start some
When we say, "To take in Sights,"
Though 'tis a quiet little spot,
We are still within our right?.
We are thinking of the Red Cross
Of these three last nights or so,
And the money raised for Uncle Sam,
By putting on that show. ,
If the Red Cross doin's, was a sample
Of the sport of that town,
Can you blame us friendly people,
If we like to hang around?
Why you spend your money gladly,
For a cause that's just and true,
And you offer us the glad hand,
Every week we come to you.
After hard drilling and marching,
Your little town looks good to all;
So we're coming to play with you,
Till the orders come, "The Call."
Then gladly we will sail across
To fight and die for you;
Because you cheered us up, friends,
When we were feeling blue.
Bi-Bud Lt. M. B. Johnson.

ing.. 0LEST HOUSE ETJT ONE
ON IIAIN STREET
From Tusrfay's Pally.
The old house which is being
torn down by Mr. Bach, on lower
Main street where Mrs. Heinrieh liv
ed for so many years was at first
constructed where II. M. Soennich-
scn new has his dry goods store, and

place where Mr. Bach has the stire

T7EAT THE RED CROSS DOES
from Tuesday's Ia:Iy.
To derive benefits from the splen
did American Red Cross organization
it is not necessary that your soldier
bey be wounded and at the point of
death. The sick, the fatigued and
the wounded are cared Tor alike by
this society and through its chan
nels those in perfect health are sup
plied with warm, comfortable sweat
ers, socks and other articles of per
sonal necessity and convenience But
the main object of the organization
is the caring for soldiers wounded
on the field of battle and due to its
adeptness along this line many lives
are saved that would otherwisely be
lost. One single life lost, when it
could otherwisely be saved, cannot
be measured in terms of dollars and
cents. - Suppose that it should be
your boy lying mortally wounded on
the field of battle? Every one of us
owe to this organization our support
both financially and otherwise.
CARD OF THANKS.
We wish to extend our sincere
thanks to those who so kindly assist
