"KILLED" SOLDIER

Hero Reported Dead Is Decorated
for Meritorious Service on
Field of Battle.
Wounded Forty-Four Times In At
tempting to Clean Out Machine
Gun Nest at Chateau Thierry
Wife Insisted He Wasn't Dead.
Omaha, Neb. Lieut. "Big Jim" Han
bery, formerly a teacher in Kansas
Manual Training Normal at Pittsburg,
Kan., who was "killed" at Chateau
Thierry, and for whom funeral serv
ices and memorial exercises were held
in Pittsburg, Tulsa and Enid, Okla,
and several other places, was called
before the commandant at Fort Crook
and before 1.000 soldiers decorated
with the distinguished service cross
for meritorious service on the field of
battle in France.
Before pinning the cross on his
breast the commanding officer read to
Hanbery a personal letter from Gen
eral Pershing and another from Gov
ernor Allen of Kansas, each commend
ing him for the service he had per
formed. Although he was officially
"killed" at Chateau Thierry, Hanberj
Is now a newspaper reporter in
Omaha.
Wounded Forty-Four Timet.
Briefly, this was the service for
which Hanbery was decorated:
At Chateau Thierry he undertook,
with a platoon of men, to clean out a
German machine gun nest. He was
wounded 44 times, left for dead on the
battlefield for 36 hours, crawled and
rolled three miles to the American
lines, spent many months In a hos
pital and today carries one bullet In
his body and four pieces of a high-explosive
shell In his head.
"Big Jim" (he stands six feet two
inches In his bare feet) was teaching
at Pittsburg when the war broke out.
He didn't wait for the draft, but en
listed at once. He went through one
of the training camps, was commis
sioned lieutenant and married to Miss
Nellie Crane, teacher in the same
school at Pittsburg. He was lieuten
ant of Company L, Fifty-ninth Infan
try, Fourth division, and In this ca
pacity went to France.
The War department cabled his wife
In Pittsburg and his parents In Enid
of his "death." When the funeral serv
ices were arranged Mrs. Hanbery re
fused to attend. -
"Jim Is not dead," she insisted.
Everybody pitied her. But she insisted
"Jim is not dead."
Paper Played Up His Death.
Kansas and Oklahoma papers played
up his "death."

pings they could. They wanted to keep
them to read in after years. Now "Big
Jim" has them all nicely rsted in a
scrapbook and can read his own obit
uary whenever he pleases. In addition
to the clippings there are, half a hun
dred telegrams of sympathy, the offi
cial notice from the War department
and several soliciting letters from
dealers In tombstones and monuments.
But Mrs. "Big Jim" Insisted Jim was
not dead.
One day a couple of months aftet
"Big Jim's" funeral services, Mrs
Hanbery received a letter from Lieu
tenant Hanbery. He was all shot to
pieces and In a hospital In France, but
getting along pretty well.
"I told you Jim wasnt dead, was
about her only comment.
In time Hanbery was brought back
to the States, spent many months in a
hospital and finally was well enougl
to get back to work. He came tc
Omaha and became a newspaper re
porter.
And that's why he was called down
to Fort Crook and In the presence of
the entire garrison, officers of the Sev
enth army corps area, officers from
Fort Omaha, members of the War
Mothers, Overseas Girls and other pa
triotic organizations had pinned to his
breast the bronze distinguished serv

Do You Remember This One
It was just ten years ago and just such a clear crisp
New Years as this bids fair to be. We took part in a
picnic out at the Petrified Forest and on the way home
the doughty fifty horse power Kissel Car, owned by a
certain El Paso banker who shall be nameless, baulked at
the hill just beyond the spot where it rises beyond
the cement bridge over the Little Colorado. But ' then
there was no cement bridge, just the old steel one which
fell during the flood several years ago when the St. Johns
reservoir went on a rampage. That was before the days
when a driver expected his car to climb anything short of
a stone wall, and we spent some little time making the
ascent, but at last, tired, hot, and dusty, we finally reach
ed Holbrook, but a much smaller Holbrook than we see
now.
Then in the evening there was a dance. It was a
genuine old fashioned dance, too. Held down in the old
Woods Hall, and tired as we were we had the time of our
lives. There was a pile of odoriferous, drying hides in
one corner and the floor wasn't very smooth, but we didn't
mind that. Teep's office in the front corner kind'o nar
rowed down the space at the door but there was still
plenty of room for the "stags'.' to congregate in the
draughty spot.
And DANCE say, the way we danced then was
really exercise, two-step, and waltz, with about" every
fourth dance a quadrille, made you hustle to catch up
with your breath. Well, we are not in the lightweight
class now, and we weren't then, and as we watched the
lighter ones whirled through the mazes of 'cage the bird'
or 'go to jail' and 'all go to church', we decided that if
they had us in a set they wouldn't find the swinging quite
so easy.
But we know more about it now, for the next set was
ours and the masculine part of it was a husky bunch.
There was John Divelbess, Geo. Hennessey, Emmet Wal
lace, and Harry Jamison from Denver, and what they
didn't know about a square dance you could put in a
gnat's eye. Geo. Hennessey did the calling and the fun
was on.
The spectators sitting on the boards around the hall
laughed until they nearly knocked the slivery planks
from their supporting stools and kegs, and still the dance
went on. By the time it was over there wasn't a single
speck of breath left to us and we had been swung clear
off the floor so many times we'd lost count.
But we had a wonderful time although some of the
young snips looked disdainful and talked longingly of a
new dance 'the one-step' which was just coming in, and
which was sure to be a huge success, but they were afraid
to risk it that night as it might be too much of an inno
vation. Thus do we travel on through the years even in Hol
brook. So perhaps you'll see why, when we read the
following poem handed to us by W. B. Cross and publish-
