Emery i “Over There” is a field where poppies grow, And they call it Flanders’ Field, Where crosses—white In the hush of night, Stand like guards with buckled shield. They watch o’er the brave who sleep there today, ’Neath a gleaming carpet of red, And the world walks by, With a tear and sigh And whispers, “They are our dead.’’ There are hearts today—in our land of the free, Who will mourn and remember anew, ■ How the cause of Right Led our boys to fight— To die for the red, white and blue. We grieve with you, dear ones, who gave the most, When we think of those you have lost. Though the years drift away, We know you, today, Are silently counting the cost. V 1 P.

No job too large or too small o ANT CONTROL | At about this time of year, when the weather is begin- 1 ning to get warmer and cot ton is in <-he‘stand, the ants become quite a problem wherever they are present in any quantity. The pro blem is especially aggra vated upon new land, and in some cases stands of cotton have been seriously depleted. Perhaps the best control measure which can be used, which is alsq the handiest for the farmer, is the appli cation of Cyanogas (Cal cium Cyanide), which is a manufactured product now. quite generally sold by drug stores, hardware stores and feed and seed stores. Cyanogas is very poison ous, especially as it gives off a gas, which is the killing agent, and care should be used in handling it- Inhal ing of the gas should be avoided. A heaping teaspoonful of the chystals, applied di rectly to the mouth of the ant den, will usually clean them up, but another brood will soon come out and an other application must be made. Frequent treatments usually kill out the nest and reduce losses to a minimum. BUILDING, AND PLANS OF MORE BUILDING MS APPROACH OF SUMMER MONINS.

Residents of this place have become accustomed to seeing new edifices in the course of construction, and hearing of new leases made, new buildings plan ned, farms improved, and general activity prevailing, it is to the visitor that the fact strikes forcibly that a big town is in the making.
