This buttcutter has been built here

HONOR THE FLAG
OF YOUR COUNTRY
Eats off and Honor to the Living
Representation of the Good
ness of Your Homeland
When you see the Stars and
Stripes displayed, son, stand up and
take off your hat.
Somebody may titter. It is in the
blood of some to deride all expres
sion of noble sentiment. You may
blaspheme in t he street and stagger
drunken in public places, and the by
standers will not pay much atten
tion to you; but if you should get
down on your knees and pray to Al
mighty God or if you shojld stand
bareheaded while a company of olu
soldiers marches by with fl-ips to the
breeze, some people will think you
are showing off.
But don't you mini! V, hen Old
Glory comes along, i'nt. :ind let
them think what they rler.e! When
you hear the band play "The Star
Spanglcd lianntr"' while jou are in
a restaurant or ha'el c'.'n-ng room,
get up, even if you arise alonv; stand
there, and don't be ashamed of it.
For of all the signs and symbols
since the world began there is none
other so full of meaning is the flag
of this country. That piece of red,
white and blue means five trousand
years of struggle upwards. It is the
full-grown flower of ages of fight
inp: for liberty. It is the century plant
of human hope in bloom.
Your flag stands for humanity, for
an equal opportunity to all the sons
of men. Of course, we haven't ar
rived yet at that goal; there are
many injustices yet among us, many
senseless and cruel customs of the
past still clinging to us, but the on
ly hope of righting the wrongs of
in our bosoms by the sight of that
Other flags mean a glorious past,
this flag a glorious future. It is not
so much the flag of our fathers as
it. is the flag of our children, and of
all children yet unborn. It is the
flag of tomorrow. It is not the flag
of your king, it is the flag of your
self and of all your neighbors.
Don't be ashamed when your
throat choke3 and the tears come,
as you see it flying from the masts
of ships on .ill the seas or floating
from every flagstaff or the Republic.
You will never have a "A-orthier emo
tion. Reverence it as you would rev
erence the signature of the Deity.
Listen, son! The band is playing
the national anthem "The Star
Spangled Banner"! They have let
loose Old Glory yonder. Stand up
and others will stand with you.

A. 3. Pwatledge of Nehawka Writes
on Method of Selecting Fowls
For Best Exhibits.
We are all very well aware of the
preat live stock industry in Cass coun
ty. Nowhere, perhaps, will better
quality or greater numbers be found
in u.11 branches of live stock breeding
tiian is scattered over the fertile
hills and farms of our county.
There is another industry of which
we wish to call the attention of the
people because of its connection with
the farm, city and village life of our
county. The poultry industry has
outgrown its swaddling clothes and
towers as a giant among the agricul
tural pursuits of our county and
state. It is not today a mere side
i.-sue, but has become one of the
specialty lines of farm pursuits. Ex
clusive poultry farms are being es
tablished rapidly with greater prom
ise of success. Government and state
demonstration farms are taking a
loading part in all branches of poul
try raising. Farmers and city peo
ple are fast taking up standard bred
poultry and working with their fa
vorite breed or breeds.
Not everyone i3 familiar with the
meaning of Standard Bred poultry,
hence the writer will try to enlighten
those who care to know more about
Standard Bred poultry, especially
those who are breeding one or more
of the many varieties of our domestic
feathered tribe with a view to main
taining the, characteristics and re
quirements of the Standard.
The organization of the American
Poultry association was effected at
Buffalo, N. Y., in February, 1873, by
delegates from different state and
county associations, prominent breed
ers, fanciers and other interested
persons from different sections of the
United States and Canada. At that
time the fundamental object of this
organization waf to standardize the
different varieties of domestic and
ornamental fowls, and to that end,
a complete Standard of Excellence
for all varieties' then recognized, was
formulated and adopted which was
recommended as the guide for judg
ing at all poultry exhibitions.
The American Poultry association
has since greatly broadened its scope
until now it is the recognized and
only authoritatire method employed
in judging all classes and breeds of
The rules of judging and scoring
according to this Standard of Per
fection are not known to many other
than those whom we term the
"Chicken Fancier." The fancier is
familiar with the standard require
ments of his fowls and breeds them
along these lines, according to his'
ability to interpret the Standard,
hence we see the uniformity of color
and breed characteristics in all our!
many varieties and breeds of chick-!
ens, geese, turkeys, ducks, etc.
Realizing that there are some per
haps who would like to exhibit their
poultry at the Cass county, fair next
week, were they more sure of making
a creditable showing, the writer will
lend his aid. in helping them select
the birds that will give credit to the
fhow and their owners. To enable
those who desire to bring their best
birds, it will be necessary to choose
those free from disqualifications, be
cause a Judge will not place a ribbon
